After 10 countries, and experience to last me a last time, I am finally back in the United States from my 2 week travel around Europe. I’ve been sharing the journey with my friends on my personal facebook page. I also remembered to post a few items on Twitter and Instagram.
I cannot wait to share my photos, reviews and observations, but unfortunately, I came home to some really sad news in my family and as soon as I wrap my head around that, I will return to blogging.
Press n’ Curl is not a service that I was expecting a stylist to be offering in this day and age. So when Karaine (my new stylist) suggested a press n’ curl I was like, huh?
The back story…
At some point early in the year, my hair was either a) over processed; b) reacting to medications; c) reacting to my absent minded reluctance to hydrate properly or d) reacting to the no-lye relaxers that I was using at the time. Well whichever one, or maybe it was a combination of all of the above, my hair was coming out in bundles. When I realized the shedding wasn’t going to be an easy fix with Aphogee and moisturizers, I seeked professional help from someone who was knowledgeable and skilled with black hair.

I was never into the bodycon or long sleeve dress trend until I met this dress. This was a find at Macy’s sometime last year on one of my girls out Saturdays with my Mom. The royal blue color and the bold white stripe really spoke to me. I paired it with my favorite white heels (spare me the lecture on white shoes after labor day). I wore this dress to Nigel Ramsay’s fashion show that was held in Hartford, Connecticut a few weeks ago. Continue Reading –>
Yep, I was all bundled up in this quilted jacket and flared skirt that I wore to work on Monday. When the temperature dropped below freezing, I draped a spare scarf that I keep in my desk to help keep my core warm. The scarf wasn’t big enough to cover both my neck and my torso, and because the jacket is collarless, I added this neck muff thing that I picked up at H&M last week. Continue Reading –>
We all have at least one or two luxe items that we would love to add to our closet, right?

I’ve always heard the old adage that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Apparently, they are also the windows to how fast we are really aging. The skin around our eyes are extremely delicate and thin and is vulnerable to age-related physical changes which includes: fine lines, dark circles and bags. Because the area is so thin, we usually avoid the eye area (as recommended) when we use our aging reversal ingredients like glycolic acid and retinol. However, to fight the signs of aging, it is important that we incorporate or add cosmetics specially formulated to address this delicate area.
I am always looking for ways to stretch my wardrobe across different seasons. This dress was one of the few purchases that I made this summer and I’ve worn it by itself and under a blazer. Continue Reading –>
