Life Update. 29Rooms. Photography apps.

I’m pretty ridiculous and I’m aware. I’m just completely over myself okay. My last post was in March! Ha, pleaseee. MY LACK OF MOTIVATION HAS BEEN EATING ME ALIVE. Honestly, I can no longer deal which is why I am here right now typing up this post. I have more posts in mind but I thought it’ll be quite tacky to drop a blog post without explaining what’s really going on. SIGH—– (the dramatics LOL)


Well first, I am a graduate! A Howard University graduate that is! I’m thinking of doing a post-grad blog post, but that is a topic for another day! I moved back to Chicago and I am loving it. It feels good to be home after being separated for 4 years! I’m saying this now, but as soon as the weather drop, I’LL BE CRYING ICICLES. Minus the days when the heat is unbearable, I’ve enjoyed the summer and is dreading the climate change.

Enjoy this graduation picture, until the post-grad post drop!

The summer has been a time filled with installations and exhibits and I love a good photo opp paired with a good outfit. Refinery 29 is one of my favorite companies, so when I saw their brand, 29Rooms, was coming to Chicago I was eager to buy my ticket! I wasn’t able to go to every room there because of the set up of 29Rooms, but I still managed to get some great pictures in the rooms I did visit. 29Rooms is much different than your typical installation. Despite the name, it is one big room with 29 subsections dedicated to different artists and themes AND LONG LINES. Here some of my favorite pictures from the event:

Since I’ve had an iPhone one of my favorite features has been the photography apps. I’ve always enjoyed editing my pictures I thought it would be cool to start a new segment on my blog where I talk about apps and different tech tools I use whether that be to edit my pics or vlogs, etc. Hmmm.. the name of this segment should be something along the lines of “The Tech Tools.” I think I like that enough LOL.

I’ve recently come across the app “Afterlight” and I love it! The app is $1.99 but definitely worth it. They have a variety of tools on the app where you could honestly make it a one-stop shop, but of course, I’m too extra. I use at least 1 other app before going straight to Afterlight. If you’re simple with your editing you’ll definitely get a lot out of use out of Afterlight.

Comment below to let me know you guys favorite editing apps! Also, be sure to let me know if you download Afterlight!

Hip Hop Meets Streetwear

I’ve been finding myself listening to my same playlists (which I am so tired of now, and I’ve been waiting for new music to drop! Within the genres that I typically listen to, I feel as though there hasn’t been any music dropping lately.

However, YFN Lucci just dropped an album, and it’s perfect timing! It’s spring break and I need some traveling music. I’ve been a Lucci fan since “Wish Me Well 2,” and I definitely would consider him to be one of my favorites. I like Lucci because his music is relatable. He has a very unique music style from the rest of the individuals in his genre and I appreciate that. He has radio hits like “Key to the Streets,” “Everyday We Lit,” and “Street Kings.” Lucci even has slower songs catering to the ladies like “Run It Up” and “Missing You” which are my personal favorites.

I also enjoy Lucci’s fashion sense. I like to see rappers allowing their stylist to take them outside of their comfort zone sometimes, but at the same time remain themselves. Lucci was recently been featured in a lookbook where he teamed up with the LA-based streetwear brand DOPE. Hip-hop plays a huge role in fashion, so I love seeing clothing brands collaborate with hip-hop artists! Click here to learn more of Lucci’s feature. Be sure to check out Lucci’s latest album “Ray Ray from Summerhill.”  Comment below your favorite Lucci songs!


Happy Valentine’s Day!

I am back on this day of sharing love to share something I love with you all, and that’s CHEAP flights! I tell everyone that wants to travel at an affordable cost to follow different pages that share flight deals, but I also make it my job to post some of the best deals that I see. This week in my feeds I spotted some bomb deals, internationally and domestic including:

If you’re really down for an adventure you can grab the flights to Fort Lauderdale/Miami and a flight to Belize making it a multi-stop vacation. Now that sounds fun! Are you down for some fun in the sun? Spring Break and the Summer is approaching. Plan a grand vacation at an affordable cost before it’s too late. Comment below if you’re GRABBING any of these flights or PASSING!


Street Art + Me = A Shoot!

After spending three and a half years in Washington, D.C, I still find myself missing home, Chicago, but having a few months left I decided to take advantage of the city and find cool settings to take pictures. After looking for different places to shoot around the city I found some dope places. I found this alleyway in Northwest named Blagden Alley and it is beautiful. I am a huge fan of street art and street photography, so I knew that shooting here was a must. I hit up Carlissa, at, to do a shoot and it was a success! This location was perfect! I’ll definitely be back here to shoot again. There were many different backgrounds that are all great for shooting, but my favorite was the “LOVE” background. I shared some of the photos below and also listed where my outfit is from. Do you all know of any other dope places to shoot in the Washington, D.C or Maryland area?

Do you see this coat?!


Coat: ASOS Luxe Teddy Borg

Turtle Neck: Forever 21

Jeans: Zara

Shoes: PUMA by Rihanna Creepers

I am here for Teddy Coats! Teddy coats are big this season and definitely a must-have! Recently I’ve been searching all of my favorite stores for the perfect coat and I found one! Originally I wanted a brown one, but when I came across this pink one it was on sale and I knew I had to grab it! I found this coat at Asos for less than half the price! I LOVE bargains! It is the same coat that I spotted two of my favorite bloggers wearing on Instagram (see below.) Although, the brown coat would have been easier to match other things I couldn’t beat the price of the pink teddy coat. I paired this coat with a simple pair of jeans, cream turtleneck, and my PUMA by Rihanna creepers. Too much thought didn’t go into this look, but it’s definitely a fly casual everyday outfit!

Are you a fan of the teddy coat trend this season? Comment below!



It’s been weeks since I’ve posted a video, but I am happy to be back! I have a few old videos to post, so within the next week, I’ll be consistently posting! Be sure to comment like and subscribe to my youtube channel!

Welcome back! Welcome back!

I have not been active on my blog since the ending of the semester and although I wish I remained consistent, it has been a well-needed and deserved break. During my time off I went back home ate my favorite foods and went on an 8-day cruise! Obviously, my winter break was great. There would be a later post talking about my cruise in details.

However, it is officially the New Year and I wanted to make a blog post because the new year is easily one of my favorite times of the year. My favorite thing about the new year is reflecting and thinking about the best moments of that year. Also, brainstorming different new year resolutions and changes you want to make. It is sometimes a moment to be unrealistic in goal setting LOL. We say we are going to change 100 things and only change 3. We are all guilty. We mean well but things just don’t seem to work out all the time. 12 days in and I have yet to create my goal list, although thinking about it I am going to make sure that I create S.M.A.R.T. goals, and advise everyone else to make every goal a S.M.A.R.T. goal.

During my absence, I’ve noticed consistent views, and that makes me excited and motivates me to prioritize my blog! My mom also told me that I need to post more LOLOL. So I am here to say welcome back and stay tuned! What are some of you all’s goals for 2018?!

The Final Blog Post?!

As the semester ends, this wraps up my class project and I’m so sad! This has been a pretty rough semester but my blog was definitely my favorite part. Nonetheless, I’ll continue to dedicate time to my blog! This semester I loved learning everything about social media and blogging! I’ll definitely use the tools I learned to continue my career as a blogger! I have so much content to still put out, so be sure to stick around as my blog flourish.


Spotted: Miss Thang herself! I’ve been seeing these pictures all over my feeds! Monica was spotted in Kentucky rocking Monse Maison’s Belted Herringbone Jacket and “FOR WALKING” Knee-high OFF-WHITE boots. My girl literally killed this look and I am SHOOK! Let’s get into this plaid/checked print trend. I am a fan!!! And OFF-WHITE?!?! I am here for OFF-WHITE everything. Virgil is one of my favorite designers right now! How do you guys feel about this look? Hot or not?





WAIT! Please stop what you’re doing and book one of these flights!!! If I had the time and wasn’t in school I’d be on my way to Europe! Often times we get caught up in the cliche that traveling is expensive, but the key to traveling is booking flights when there is a cheap deal like this one circulating different travel blogs. From the different blogs I come across, often times travelers speak about how they book flights when there are amazing deals going on, and when there are glitches on different websites. We literally have to stop snoozing on deals and see the world! I understand having responsibilities pull us back, but post-grad please believe I will definitely take advantage of all the deals.

Okay, but here is a fair WARNING. Like many airlines WOW Air is flawed. While abroad I flew from London to Keflavik and from Keflavik back to Barcelona. The flying process was like normal. However, the thing that I didn’t like about WOW Air is their baggage system. The only bag you are allowed for free is a personal bag such as a purse or a backpack, a bag small enough to fit under the seat in front of you. If you are traveling with a carry-on, it must be a certain size, and you have to pay for it. Depending on where you are flying from and flying to determines the cost of the extra baggage. Click HERE to check out all the $99 dollar flights leaving the United States headed to cities in Europe!

Comment below how you all feel about posts like these! Are you guys booking these flights or what? Do you have things holding you back? Maybe my mantra will help. Book now, worry later!
