Don't you just love a good street runway show! The relaxed style in the French Riviera proved to be effortless resort wear perfection. It's obviously a vacation destination where good fashion sense is appreciated.

As my family & I strolled the breathtaking streets in the marina town of Cannes, we were awestruck at the similarities to the Caribbean. One of our home away from homes is the eastern Caribbean island of St. Maarten where my Step-Father spent his formative years. Being a former Dutch & French owned island, the evidence of colonization lies in the design layouts of the streets, the stylish charm of the buildings & the...

Happy June fellow Mavens!!! Well I must say May was so eventful that it seems to have flown right past me without stopping to say good morning and how are you today, would you like a cup of coffee?? But in actuality, I had so many wonderful experiences during the month of May that I wanted to do a quick recap of it all. 

It all started out with conversations of mental health issues due to Charlemagne The God's phenome...

As Wedding Season dawns upon me and Innovative Arts Photography kicks it's gears into hi-speed, I still love to be engaging with the fashion community keeping an ear to the ground whenever possible and I'm soooooo glad I caught wind of Fashion Takeout! The Black Owned fashion boutique boasts of high fashion that will "break necks not your pockets" so you know I had to pop in and see for myself. Co-owners Bettyna Theo...

Hey Glitterdolls!

So let's TALK! This is such a "MUST-HAVE" conversation. Everyone wants their Beyonce moment, and I am sooo delighted when you come to me to fulfill that request. But truth be told, "the moment" costs! As it should! I have discovered that many do not understand the cost differences and breakdown between shopping at the mall and custom designs. Some, have never had anything custom made before, and othe...

Why do things stand still at any horrific instance? Wouldn’t it make sense that your body would want to force the future on yourself? Immediately try to push past what just happened? Why does shock work like that?

Monday, December 18th, 2017, around 6 o’clock in the morning. I check Twitter immediately when I wake up for some reason. Everything felt normal, relatively: My room was hot, my head hurt from the fan being...

Here's a special shout out to the most epic Black History Month I can remember in recent years. I started my #BlackHistoryMonth with a bang at the Historic Ali Cultural Arts center in Pompano Beach at the amazing exhibit of 3D original art by prolific Nigerian Artist Adewale Adenle whose work addresses important figures in African Diasporic history {~on exhibit through March 29, 2018~}. Then my friends and I bought o...

The truth is, I have attended hundreds of networking events over the last 5 years as a single woman, and I have yet to encounter the possibility of true love. Though I have hope, I seem to know how this story ends. Essentially I’ve become so numb to it, simultaneously praying that I’m wrong. While, popular opinion states that finding love at a networking event is inappropriate, I beg to differ. As a matter of fa...

After over a year of anticipation, in just a few days,  we finally get to visit Wakanda. Marvel’s Black Panther is hitting theaters on Thursday, February 15th, just in time to make this the most lit Black History Month ever.

Black Panther is already outselling every previous superhero film in pre-sales. Theaters everywhere are already sold out for opening weekend and scrambling to add more showings to keep up with the...

Black History Month is undoubtedly a time of rebirth for the Black community in America, a time that reminds us of the need to look first outward to the occurrences of the past and then become inspired to look inward to make the most of the present moments and the future. What exactly encompasses looking inward you may ponder? I think there are various manners of looking inward or practicing introspection with s...

Warning: Don't judge me

I don't know about y'all, but my closest friends know & understand that I'm totally OCD about certain things. This also means that I find joy in very simple things. When I do laundry & my underwear drawer is full and organized sigh... almost brings a tear to my eye LOL not really, sorry not sorry :) It's the simple things in life!

If you know the phenomenal sisters Simone & Trudy (Yanique) like I do then you know how magnetic their personalities are, and magnetism like theirs could only amount to the growing levels of success that they experience in their business Natural TrendSetters. Natural TrendSetters is the first natural hair care center in south Florida & has become a driving force and proven trendsetter in the industry. As one of the f...
