BEAUTY | Choix Beauty Box Review

This one is actually unique. At Choix (French for “choice”) you get to choose the samples you want (I told you it was unique). […]

STYLE | Five-to-Niners NYFW Brunch

I hope that most of you were able to relax and recharge over the long weekend. I wanted to get more done, but it felt so good to do absolutely nothing for a change! I did get out of the house long enough to attend the “Five-to-Niners” NYFW (New York Fashion Week) Brunch hosted by […]

Cheers to the Weekend // 03

One of my 15 resolutions for 2015 is to do more exploring, not only with regards to travel, but also exploring NYC neighborhoods. NYC is an amazing city. There’s so much to see and do. I haven’t even been everywhere in Harlem yet, let alone the rest of Manhattan, and oh yes, there’s also the […]

SHOPPING | Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Magazines and TV commercials make it seem like Valentine’s Day is all about us. And our guys usually feel the same, too. They get us flowers, pay for a nice dinner (or make one…that’s always a nice touch!) and then we also get a cute gift. But what about the men? This year, let’s make […]

MIND + BODY | Working it Out with UP24 by Jawbone

About a year ago, I started working out in earnest because I was getting ready for my wedding. I was going to the gym a few times a week, and I hired a personal trainer. It was the most active I’d been in a really long time. But as I got closer to the wedding, […]

BEAUTY | My Natural Hair Goals for 2015

My hair hasn’t been a priority for quite some time. And that’s because no matter what I seem to do, my hair still breaks and still doesn’t retain any noticeable length.
