I’ve finally gotten around to editing these photos! I’ve been so excited to share these with who ever actually looks at this blog. Besides being crazy busy with a new Assistant Editor job at Associated Publications and just running around doing odd paying tasks for the family, I’ve been exhausted. It’s late and I need […]
Support Women Artists Now, better known as SWAN Chicago, had their 4th annual art show at The Annex on Chicago Ave. last weekend. This was my third time attending one of these events. I missed last year’s showing, so I had to make it this one. Especially since one of my friends, Caira Conner, was […]
I just really wanted to show off my new overalls my sister got me for Christmas last year. She works at HM so she has the hook up with that discount. Every dollar saved counts! I’m excited about this particular pair of overalls, because they’re a replacement for the pair that was lost when Megabus […]

This year has been amazing. Amid all the political drama and racial tensions, I’ve personally been winning lately. Maybe it’s turning 25 at the end of last year, but I’ve finally started making things happen for myself. It’s all been thanks to God. I put in the work and he delivers on his promises. I’ve […]
Getting your hair to grow can be a frustrating process, but it doesn’t have to be. One of my old coworkers commented on how long my hair had gotten on Instagram and asked about my hair regiment. I replied that I really don’t do much and that’s true. I firmly believe that the less you’re […]

You need an oversized cardi in your life. You really do. What’s a cardi? Well, that’s short for cardigan. The thing you need in you’re closet right now. And, I’m not talking about those short, cutesy cashmere sweaters that your grandmother bought you. I’m talking the extra long, swaying around your legs, maybe fitted or […]
Out of all the photos Tatianna took from this shoot I like these the best. We went to at least 4 or 5 different murals around Chicago between Harrison and Roosevelt. Just snapping pictures of each other on our phones and chatting about this and that. Lovely way to start the summer. Dress: Kohl’s Shoes: […]
I adore vibrant and eye catching prints and patterns. Prints are the perfect touch to cut through all the black I’m always wearing. One of my favorite pieces is a Zara red and gray paisley jacket I bought from Crossroads Trading Company a few years ago. It’s pilled with strings hanging off of it in places, but […]
Recently, I got a new job at a trendy jewelry store. It’s a nice mix of my last job, but busier and a little more satisfying personally and financially. I like it. Anyway, I was talking to one of my co-workers last week and she asks me if I’d run into “E.” yet. (I don’t […]
Everyone has been here at one point. I look back on old photos of myself when I was in college and I’m amazed at how much my style has changed. I was definitely still finding myself visually and experimenting with this and that. Constantly reading magazines and checking out my favorite style bloggers to see […]
Went to Detroit again for a quick visit. I was short on time, so I took a few photos outside my parents house. You can see the vacant lot across the street in a few shots. The original owner of the house died and it was rented out to some sketchy individuals. My family thinks […]
Last week I had to run home to Detroit for a day to take care of a few things, while there I met up with my best friend, Sumer, and we did some exploring. Downtown Detroit is a pretty amazing place. We grabbed coffee at The Roasting Plant over by Campus Martius. The area was […]
