HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

We’ve all have heard the expression, “home is where the heart is.” We’ve heard it in a Hallmark movie, probably have seen it on an inspirational quote magnet, or even read it on an embroidered pillow. All kidding aside, this post took me a bit to write because I often struggled with that saying. I…

STOPPING TRAFFIC IN FALL NEON

Let’s be real- if you’re busting out the neon in your wardrobe, it’s not because you want to blend in; on the contrary, it’s a fashion cry to stand out. The beauty of neon is that it is absolutely wearable and meant to be bold and be front and center Yes, it can be a…

ROAMING THE CITY STREETS LIKE..

I have a thing for rooftops. This one is at my BFF and his partner’s apartment in Harlem and it’s such a nice retreat. Since we no longer have our NYC place, which by the way, boasted an amazing roof deck where I would frequent for tanning and afternoon get together with friends, I love…

HEALTHY DOES A BODY GOOD

The irony isn’t lost on me that I’m writing this post while recovering from a bout of horrible food poisoning. The last thing I want to think about is food, but considering the current state of down time, I have to take advantage, tame the stomach, and write on….about food. I’ve always wanted to shoot…

LET GO AND…LET YOUR HUSBAND DRESS YOU.

How many of you would trust your husbands or significant others to shop for you? Coco and I have been together for 17 years, and we’ve had our fair share of questionable gifts, left field gifts, inappropriate gifts, and downright tacky gifts (mostly from him end). I do have to say though, the longer we’re…

WHY I’LL NEVER STOP WEARING POLKA DOTS

It looks like I have polka dots on the brain, because based on some recent Instagram posts, I have polka dot crazy! I keep gravitating to spotted outfits or certain pieces in my closet because it’s such a fun pattern and also easy to mix and match! Or in this case, wear those dots from…

IT’S SO HARD TO SAY GOODBYE…

The summer season will soon be coming to a close (while the calendar might say so, South Florida begs to differ), and that means time to enjoy all that Miami has to offer in terms of beach, pool, boat excursions, and beyond. If you’re squeezing in some last minute summer travels for Labor Day, bon…

SLITHER YOUR WAY INTO THIS TREND

There’s no doubt that South Florida takes the cake when it comes to animal print trends. It is a fact (I’ve asked my big retail buyers) that Miami leads the way when it comes to leopard, snakeskin, and basically any animal print/pattern that hits the market. Let’s face it. We like to be loud in…

TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Do you ever wonder why sometimes things don’t happen when you want them to happen, but when they do, you think to yourself, ‘okay, I get it now?’ Throughout life, I am sure we’ve all encountered moments where we pray and pray and pray for something we want, hoping it comes to fruition, only the…

WHY THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH WANTING TO LOOK GOOD.

We live in a world where we have limitless options in becoming better or as I like to say, ‘enhanced’ versions of ourselves. Whether it’s physically, mentally, spiritually or emotionally, we have choices. If someone is looking to connect with their faith or find God in their everyday life, they may choose to attend church…
