12 Black Travel Bloggers To Follow On Instragram

12 Black Travel Blogger Accounts To Follow On Instragram

I am always looking for inspiration. Instagram has been one of those places where I found the most amazing fashionistas, decoristas and travelistas. As I mentioned in previous posts traveling and taking care of our home are two of my priorities this year. I follow quite a few travel bloggers on Instagram and Snapchat. The fact that I am taken from country to country all from the comfort of my home is unbelievable. What was life before Snapchat? Out of all those accounts I follow, only a few of them are black travel bloggers. I thought it would be fun to go on a quest to find more of them. Read More »

Pretty Spring Handbags

Pretty Spring Handbags amazon Canada

Soft colored handbags are almost non-existent in my closet. I tend to stick to neutral colors not only because they are easy to transition from season to season, but you can also wear them with everything. We all need a little bit of color in our lives, and spring is the perfect time to swap out your neutrals for something on the softer side. Here is a list of some of my favorite Spring handbags available at every price point and fit every lifestyle.

Off The Shoulder And White Crop Denim

I hope y’all had an amazing week! I sure had a busy one. I’d like to say that’ll take it slow this weekend but who am I kidding? With summer rolling in there is so much to do around the house. I am working on a fun project for the blog and hoping to finish painting the pergola in the backyard. Talking about summer, how cute is this outfit? I think it is the perfect combo for both spring and summer. It features two trends I am loving this season – The cropped pants and off the shoulder. You may think, I am a bit bias because I am the off the shoulder girl, but who wouldn’t want to show a little skin especially when it’s hot outside. Read More »

The Confidence Checklist: 3 ways to be more confident

The Confidence Checklist: 3 ways to be more confident Assa cisse from mycurvesandcurls.com

Life is too short not to love yourself. This is coming from a woman that has learned to be confident and love every inch of her body. I am not talking about when I am wearing makeup or beautiful clothes, but loving myself with all my imperfections. People tell me I’m confident! I agree, but the road to self-confidence has not been an easy one I must confess. There were times when I didn’t feel good enough, pretty enough, or cool enough. Everything has changed, because I decided that I had only one life to live and I must make the best of it. Read More »

Escape to the Dominican Republic with Sunwing Vacations

Dress available here

A few weeks ago my friend Mo from Miss Lion Hunter and I escaped to an amazing trip to the Dominican Republic with Sunwing Vacations. I don’t remember the last time I’ve had a girlfriend getaway, so this opportunity was definitely welcomed with open arms. I caught the travel bug at a young age since my mother worked for the tourism board of Mali and traveled around the world almost half of the year. Though I only have pictures to remember those days, I feel the best when I am away exploring other cultures or simply lying on the beach getting my melanin on point. Read More »

DIY Cover Up With Pom Poms ( kaftan)

How to make a pom pom cover-up kaftan- Chic Punta Cana all inclusive all adult resort

I few weeks before my trip to Punta Cana With Sunwing vacations, I started looking around for cover ups. I wanted a fun and colorful one that I could wear both in and out of the beach. Sadly, the ones that really caught my eyes did not come in my size. I am sure you know the rest of the story. Frustration and anger started to get the best of me. To think that in 2017 we still can’t find what we love when it comes to clothing is unbelievable. With my minimal sewing skills, I made one for myself and this is the result. It was inspired by this Pom-pom Trim Beach Cover-up that Merrick Art made a few years back. Check out her post for all the instructions on how to make your own cover up. Feel free to also check these stores on Etsy  for some options. Read More »
