I am a big heaping mess. I say that with all the love, affection and regard that I have for myself. I’m the type to spill food on my lap while eating with gutso. I trip and stumble all of the time. I get strange and unidentifiable stains on my clothes. I scuff my heels. The list goes on. But today ladies and maybe a gentleman. Today, I look like a lady.
Happy New Year!!! Hey listen, yes I can still say happy new year if I haven’t seen the person since the new year started. I was in Senegal for two weeks. Hence my disappearance from internet land. You can follow my adventures on my travel blog.
I love the vibrant print on this skirt. The cut and fit isn’t exactly how I envisioned it, but I love it so much that I was determined to give it a whirl as soon as I could. I love African textiles. Love them. Wait till y’all see the plethora of cloth that I came back with. I can’t wait to learn how to sew.
Top of the morning to you!!
I went professional with this look. I know I’m usually a lot more daring/non officey with my outfits but today I stuck to the traditional attire that is attributed to young ladies that work in offices. So whaddaya think?
I am all bundled up today. It’s supposed to be really cold. I was expecting high winds and at the least, flurries. Yeah I didn’t see a single snow flake either.
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).

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
The vacation is over. The momdukes and I left the Dominican Republic and we are flying to Haiti. From there, I’m taking a flight back to Boston. I enjoyed my vacation, but I actually am looking forward to getting back to my regular routine. A vacation isn’t really fun for me after two weeks. Can’t wait for more family time.

Here are some pics from my vacation at Lifestyle Holiday Suites & Resorts in Puerto Plate, Dominican Republic. I stayed there for three nights with mi madre (my mom). It was nice & relaxing, and I enjoyed having some bonding time with just me and my best friend. Yes, I am a cornball cuz this woman really is my bestie. I tell her just about everything lol.
The greenery was lush, and it was just so pretty and I slept like a baby in our extra comfortable suite.
