STYLE | HUSTLE SUNDAYS

I’ve missed you all. It’s been over a week since I posted, and I’m trying to make sure that doesn’t happen again! Can we just pause to talk about my life for the past two weeks? Hectic. I’ve taken on some additional projects at…

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…

Cheers to the Weekend // 02

When you live in a city as beautiful as New York, sometimes the best way to spend the weekend is to go for a drive and see it. When’s the last time you actually saw your city? Perhaps it’s time to get reacquainted…why not…

Instagrammed // Counting My Blessings for #30BlessedDays

I haven’t done an “Instagrammed” post since this one in January, and I haven’t really put up a ton of photos of myself in the six months since then. Partly, the reason for this is because I don’t take good selfies (they’re only good…

Out to Lunch with Desiree of Brownstone Bazaar

About two weeks ago, I took an extra long lunch in order to meet up with Desiree of Brownstone Bazaar (one of my fave #BLOGGERBOOS). I figured since it was a random weekday, we’d be able to score a table at Clinton Street Bakery.…

MUSINGS | On Being Black and Harlem Gentrification

Most of my coworkers know that my fiance lives in Harlem, so they often tell me of their forays into “Northern Manhattan” and all the wonderful places they go for brunch on Sundays. Just last week, one of them sent me a New York…

On President’s Day, Quentin and I went down to Chelsea Market to visit with Nathan, one of my former coworkers and the current manager of Lucy’s Whey. I remember being so shocked when Nathan told me he’d be leaving our health policy nonprofit to…

This week I had the pleasure of attending the Miss Jessie’s Holiday Party at the Miss Jessie’s Salon in Soho. DJ Dimepiece had everybody dancing, and of course there was plenty of natural hair inspiration and TONS of complimentary curly styling goodies. I had…

I’m not Afropunk

Q and I met up with his cousin yesterday at AFROPUNK FEST in Brooklyn. I was curious about it, and Q really wanted to see K-OS. It was an interesting vibe. I guess I don’t listen to a lot of alternative Black music because…

Houston Bowery Wall

Before a casual evening at Momofuku Ssam Bar (which originally was supposed to be a casual evening at Booker & Dax, but I got confused), I stopped at the Houston Bowery Wall, which is right at the corner of E. Houston (pronounced “how-ston” for…

Instagrammed // Summertime in the City

It’s the beginning of summer, so I’m slowly crawling out of my comfort zone and starting to do a lot more venturing out into NYC. This city has SO MUCH to offer. I feel like there’s always something going on, and I know I…

Instagrammed // Snowboarding + Robert Glasper

Quentin took me snowboarding in VT. It was my first time doing anything like that. The first day was TERRIBLE; I was falling all the time, and I almost got frostbite. The second day was much better. I had a much better instructor, and…

Fashion’s Night Out NYC

I had no intention of attending Fashion’s Night Out last Thursday. I was just so tired. All the talking and events and photo editing and practicing for my presentation at work had made me quite cranky, and less than social. Q talked me into…
