One thing I don't incorporate more in my ensembles are statement pieces, particularly jewelry. I tend to go for the gold hoop look for earrings, and I very rarely wear necklaces. Likely because of my weird childhood habit, perhaps? Clearly I love hoops. Anyway, my new fashion project, in my constant effort to creatively step [...]
This is the Holly Street Rubie Bag, by Kate Spade. I want it so bad I can taste the blue on my tongue. For real. If you click [...]
Those endless selfies are for a reason, Mom. From December 2012 to a few weeks ago, my natural hair journey so far...
Some of you know this woman. She's your sister, your friend, your fellow cubicle dweller who insists on playing 70s soft rock on her Pandora station, your daughter, your cousin. Some of you don't believe that the fact that she's an Unmarried African Woman (UAM) needs to be capitalized, or even an issue. And if that's [...]

Having just returned from a relaxing [...]
Something a bit different this Gratitude Friday. I'll start by telling you that I wasn't the kind of girl that the boys ran after. Those kind of girls were a different set; far removed from my small group of funny, wisecracking nerds who liked to correct your grammar and spout critiques about books and independent films. We were silly, goofy, [...]
Oh, hi there. It's been a while, huh? In short, I loathe winter and with all the polar vortexes and all that, my writing has been suspended by a lack of desire, inspiration, and general movement in my hands. But here we are. Hi, again. This will be brief. I'm here to post a song that I find [...]
