Well Vested

It’s Friday!!! I am always excited when Friday comes knocking on the door because it is about to be the weekend and babe, I’m about to have me some fun (in R. Kelly’s voice). Do I have plans? Of course not! But I am about to figure it out since this weekend is going to be a long one. I was told one of my …

The Swan Princess @ Secret Akumal Riviera Maya

To celebrate a beautiful friend’s 40th birthday, a bunch of us girls packed our bags and traveled to Cancun, Mexico to have fun. We stayed at the Secret Akumal Riviera Maya which is a new adult-only all inclusive luxury resort. For picture purposes, the celebrant requested that we bring an all white outfit. I knew I wanted to wear a tulle skirt but I was …

Be Grey

Hello Guys!

Fashion Tip – Ballet Inspired Heels

I bought these Stuart Weitzman heels few years ago to wear to a wedding.  Of course the heels fit perfectly when I left the store with them. I had absolutely no complaint because they fit snugly throughout the event. Few hours on the dance floor was amazing because they were so comfortable and I had no reason to take them off at all. Thank goodness for …

Navy Cutout Dress and White Oxford Shirt

Boy, was it windy and chilly yesterday when I took these pictures. Thank God I was able to at least get a few manageable images of this inexpensive dress before I called it quits and ran back to the car.  Abeg, I no wan fall and catch cold on top (Please, I do not want to fall and catch a cold). I keep forgetting it’s …
