Outfit of the Day: Back to School Vibes

Outfit of the Day: Back to School Vibes

I was talking to my husband the other day and he said that summer makes him nostalgic—memories of running around with your friends, no school, playing games, nothing to worry about but where to get snacks and how late you can stay outside with your friends. Summer doesn’t evoke those memories in me at all. […]

These 4 Black Women Slayed NYFW With a Powerful Message

  The past two years have been an especially tumultuous time for race relations in America. This is particularly true for the relationship between police and the black community, but is also evident in other areas such as TV, education, and fashion. Faced with the widespread, blatant mistreatment and killings of people of color (often […]

OOTD: Trying New Things

OOTD: Trying New Things

There are two colors I have actively avoided in the past: orange and green. The former because it’s a bit of an an obnoxious color…like it’s the spirit color of that person who talks too loudly during private discussions, the person who talks with their mouth full of food while laughing loudly at their own jokes, the overly […]

Hair Review: Heather Timeless Bun by Outre

Welcome to my first ever hair review! (Round of applause) I did a video about what women of color should pack for Korea, and since I was already made up, styled up, and set up with my camera, I just decided to do a hair review right after. In that video, I commented on how […]

Outfit of the Day: Wide-Legged Pants for the Summer

My relationship with skinny jeans is similar to many people’s relationships with Facebook: you’re pretty much addicted until you come to your senses one day about how utterly ridiculous it is, prompting you to stage a boycott that lasts three days at best while you test other competitors, until you realize that this is just […]

I’M BACK! OOTD + (Short) Life Update #2

Hello again to my small (yet awesome) community of readers! Life has been hectic on all fronts over here in the Korean countryside but I’m alive and well 🙂 My last post was on Valentine’s Day, and I don’t think I can sum up the last 5 months in a short, succinct, Twitter-ific way, so […]

OOTD: A Walking Valentine

OOTD: A Walking Valentine

I’m not sure who’s idea it was to give holidays theme colors, but it pretty much ensures that I have an easily planned outfit for that day, so I’m all for color themes. The usual Valentine’s Day themes are full of shades of red, pink, black [if you’re that kind of person (aka slightly bitter…it’s OK, […]

Before I say anything else: This post is NOT sponsored at all; I just discovered and shopped these stores and love their products! Some of you may be thinking that when you are no longer a teen, you should not be shopping in the junior’s section. I say, whatever fits well and looks great is […]

Outfit of the Day: Cultural Accessories

What do you do when you get that one, awesome, dope, meaningful, stand-alone accessory? The one that is so good, there’s no point wearing other accessories because they will be clearly shunned and outshined by this one, divalicious piece? You give it what divas want–all the attention. The easiest way to do this is against […]

New Year, New Post Schedule

New Year, New Post Schedule

Happy New Year folks! The end of my 2015 was cuh-razy busy—trying to squeeze the maximum amount of time with family and friends while preparing to leave the country and start a new job for…who knows how long, in South Korea (round two!). Blogging definitely took a backseat as I tried my best to adequately […]
