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 »

Home Spring Wish List With Amazon Canada

I am so excited to announce that I have partnered up with Amazon.ca to share with you some of my favorite finds all toward the year of 2017. I buy a whole lot of things on Amazon including but not limited to beauty products, perfumes, toys, household items and electronics. The only thing I probably have yet to purchase is a piece of furniture. This Spring might just be the time since I am redecorating part of the house.

Home decor with Amazon.ca- find the best deals on Amazon canada.

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 »

Things To Know before buying A Home Part 1

3 Things to consider before buying a home   Are you thinking about buying a home soon? In today’s post, I’ll share with you a few things to know and consider before taking the leap.We bought our current home almost four years ago.The whole process of buying a home was everything but fun. The part I enjoyed the most was checking other people way of life and house decors. Thankfully it was our second time, and we came in with a lot of knowledge. We avoided a lot of mistakes we did when we bought our first place. The process was incredibly long and even stressful at times, but it was all worth it when we walked in our home for the first time. There’s so much that goes into buying a home.  I would like to touch on a few things we considered before buying our first and second home. This list is valid for first-time buyers as well.
