Sweet as Pumpkin Pie


Hope your week is going well. The days are getting shorter and it gets dark out so early. I can’t believe how quickly the months have been flying by. I remember as a kid I couldn’t wait for the years to speed up so that I could get to my twenties. Now that I’m almost in my thirties I’m lamenting the time that has passed. Poor Father Time, he just can’t win with us can he?

Truth Tuesday


My truth for today is that my subconscious is really trying to tell me something, and I have to slow down and listen.


What’s your truth for today?

Animal in the Nude

Hello wonderful people!

Hope you’re faring well and staying stylish. I’ve surprisingly been having a good time shopping my closet. I’m not quite sure when I came to the realization that I have way more than enough clothes to last me for a while, save the super trendy pieces that are currently out (peplum, baroque, oxblood).

Fight the Power?

Hello, hello!

I don’t think people realize how many messages we convey based on our attire. All creatures send messages to each other throughout the day, These messages are overwhelmingly nonverbal. Whether we are aware of it or not, we tell others a lot about ourselves based on how we adorn our bodies. And the reason for the sociology lesson today you ask lol?

Well whenever I am low on time, I like to plan a no fuss outfit that can get me out of the door faster than you can say binder full of women. No fuss outfits generally consist of black or denim. Today was one of those no fuss days. I was tired and I had no interest in being creative. An all black ensemble was called for. I added the fuchsia shoes because it will be too cold to wear it in the coming weeks. Continue reading

Truth Tuesday

Hello hello hello!

My truth today? I am doggone tired. Like on some I need a hiatus from life tired. I’ve got way too much going on. I’m sorry, I’m a Taurus. I am not that active of a person. Folks laugh when I say this, but I swear I was a lady of leisure in my former life. I really like to nap, eat and shoot the shit with my friends. I don’t enjoy running from one activity to another. However that is my life right now. Although it’s comforting to know that I am engaged in all of these mind numbing and tiring activities as a means to get me closer to my goals, but I can not wait until this semester is over!! Give me free.  

What’s your truth?

School Pride


Hope you’re doing well and enjoying or at least trying to enjoy this fall weather. So far so good on my end. I haven’t really been cold, which is good because I stink at layering. I end up looking like a busted can of cookie dough. I have been running even later than usual so I don’t have any unfocused Photobooth pictures for you all. However I do snap the occasional pic in the bathroom at work. You’re welcome 🙂

I took out the Senegalese twists.

I am in love with my cowrie shell necklace from Burkina Faso. Like in love I tell you.

Whose school colors am I rocking?

My top is a burnt orange, not red. A friend of mine thought that I was repping Haiti colors, but that is not so. I do feel as if I’m repping hard for someone’s school. I don’t know whose colors are orange and blue, but Go Team! These pictures don’t do the outfit justice. I was really cute on Tuesday I swear. I have some exciting news to share, but I wanna hold off until it’s confirmed.

Any interesting things going on in your world?
