A Cool Way to wear a Kente Print Bomber jacket


Happy Valentine’s week!

I hope your Love Week was off to a great start. Do you have any romantic plans in the horizon, or are you spending time with your girlfriends?

I would totally wear this African Kente Print Bomber Jacket to celebrate with my girlfriends; it’s cute, fun, and such an icebreaker and conversation starter!

I love the fact that this bomber jacket is versatile and unisex (I can totally see my husband rocking this)! The bomber gives off an urban appeal and it’s such a fun jacket to add to your fall/winter wardrobe; and the bright and colorful print is even more perfect for the Spring and the Summer. Pair it with your favorite jeans or up trend the bomber by leaving the jeans behind and going for a cool, classy look with a cute solid dress. This is such a unique and stylish bomber! Trust me you will receive so many compliments and questions about the prints! 🙂

Lots of love,

One day at the time.


Happy Black History Month,

This is one of these “I have to confess” moments; and I hope you can relate and hopefully sympathize.


Just like any other normal and ambitious human being, I had high hopes for the first chapter of the new year. I laid out plans and goals that I wanted to tackle, as we all know, they say how you start is how you end. But I have to say, not this time! At least not for me.


If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I have been relatively quiet… or quieter. Especially in my stories. I took a small break a couple of days into the new year; and when I returned, it was at my own pace. No pressure whatsoever.


If I’m being honest though, I didn’t come to this decision on my own terms. Sometimes, the universe has its way of telling us to slow down, to listen to our body and mind; and ultimately to take it easy. And that is what I literally did.


I didn’t take a complete hiatus, as I’m still creating content to the best of my ability. Slowly, but surely, I’m still grinding, as we all obviously do… and I still have to-do lists and goals to meet. New year or even new seasons are moments that press us into believing that we have to “keep up with the Joneses”.


We don’t have to run any race but our own; and if that means slowing down at times to take a breather to recharge and refocus, so be it! I had to remind myself that, yes, the first chapter of a brand new book has just ended, and it’s ok to take it easy and re-center myself, so I can advance and progress better… one step at the time, one day at the time!


p.s Yesterday marked the first day of the Chinese new year, so if it’s any consolation, your new start can be right now. Happy New Year!

Thank you for reading.

Happy February darlings!

I know I have shared a few Valentine’s day posts in the row, and I hope you’re not over them:-)

Valentine’s Day:

This holiday is one that has a lot of controversies; and I understand and respect everyone’s opinions. I do love the fact that Valentine’s Day is not celebrated solely between couples anymore.


The popular idea of celebrating with your girlfriends (if you wish to) that have been floating around for a few years is genuine in my opinion. So if you decide to hit town or the club with your “Galentines” this year, this outfit may serve as a good inspiration for you. My daughter calls it “bad and boojee”, so why not?


Valentine’s Day outfit shopping.

Hello friends,

Before we know it, Valentine’s day will be here; and I hope you will be celebrating with loved ones. However you spend or whoever you spend the dedicated “love day” with, you deserve to look your best, without breaking the bank. After all, you have to budget for the gift too right?

Well, look no further. I put together a few outfit inspirations for you. You can shop right below by clicking each and every item that sparks your interest and have them delivered right to your door.

I hope you find this helpful and stay tuned to a Valentine’s Day gift guide coming up in a couple of days. XOXO


Always remember your “Why”!


As I stood in these cold streets trying to get these shots for Ethyl clothing, an up and coming brand I’m collaborating with, thousands and millions of thoughts rushed through my mind!


There will be times when you will be confronted with the resounding question of “Is this all worth it?”; and that is normal… and that is totally ok. This means we are humans; and as such, we, every now and then, question our steps.

However, whatever your answer to that million dollar question may be, pause for a quick second and remind yourself of your “Why?”. The  “What got you to embark on this journey in the first place”.


Remember that you owe it to yourself and to your vision to bypass or overlook your physical reality and current understanding. They’re always subject to change until “it feels right!”. Also, keep in mind that your “Why” is YOURS and YOURS ONLY to understand, believe in, cherish, and go after!


Now, ask yourself again if your “why” is strong enough to get you through all those challenges you’re facing and the uncomfortable moments and circumstances you go through. Only then will you realize you are in perfect alignment with your purpose!
