Dope Brown Brand: The Wrap Life

The Wrap Life

For those of you who know me, either via the blog, in real life, or on the gram…you know my love affair with head wraps is real. Transitioning, they saved me from going crazy! And now fully natural, many a days come around that my fro is just too much to handle and again, head wraps save the day. But besides just being my go to hair accessory for bad, busy, lazy difficult hair days, nothing sets my afrocentric minimalist chic style (is that even a thing?) off like a head wrap. I came across this dope brand on Instagram (where else??) and fell in love. Not only with the wraps which are gorgeous, but the whole vibe of the brand. Just my type!

Style Buzz: Solange x Puma Second Collection

Solange x Puma

So y’all remember the… interesting…sneaker collab Solange did with Puma some time back right? Well if you don’t, Google it. No shade. No shade. I just was not a fan. And that’s saying something because I LOVE me some Solange hunny. What I couldn’t deny though is my girl is an artist. And her creativity in the ad campaign was so ON POINT. She gets it. So naturally when I heard her new collection was dropping today, I had to check out the footwear… and also get a glimpse of all creativity I knew she would bring.

Style Files: Fall Wish List

Fall Style Wish List 2014

As excited as I am about it being Fall, sadly my wardrobe was BARELY ready for the chilly 50 degree weather that hit Philly last week. Where does the time go? I really thought I had a little longer to get my Fall wardrobe together but…no. Over the weekend I did some very light shopping to pick up some staples but there are of course there are items that I haven’t gotten yet. Not exactly staples but definitely closet essentials. I’ve already put a few things on my Nordstrom wish list, you know, just in case the Mr. is feeling generous again!

Beauty Things: May Favorites

May Favorites Main

I feel like I haven’t done a favorites post in so long. Every time I try to get back on board…I fail Kanye shrug. But let us not dwell on the past and instead focus on how awesome is it that I’m doing a monthly favorites on the last day of the actual month! Do you know how major that is?! Of course, because it’s me, most (read all) of my favorites are beauty things. That’s just the kinda girl I am <3.

Met Gala 2014 Best of the Red Carpet

So. How about the Met Gala last night! I was glued to my phone…like literally drooling over all the absolute gorgeousness emulating off the red carpet yesterday evening. As usual the Metropolitan Museum of Arts kicked off it’s annual fundraiser with breathtaking fashion. The theme this year was Charles James and of course there were some hits, some misses, and some super hard side eyes. I ain’t saying no names though ;). Through all of the impeccable fashion I of course had my favorites with Rihanna slayingggg as my absolute favorite of the night! Take a look!

What I Wore | NYC Edition

New York! Over the weekend my friend and I took a mini road trip to NYC. We were headed to the In her Shoes Blog & Essence Magazine beauty and brains behind the brand series, with a pit stop for brunch and other fun in New York. This not so Spring weather had me pressed all week about what to wear as it was just too cold to wear my orginially planned dress so I went to my old faithful casual chic look…I still was cold but cute so it worked out ;).
