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...

As a fashion & lifestyle blogger {~however new to the blogosphere~}there are opportunities popping up constantly & offers to try new interesting products & services in order to share experiences with readers. Now let's be honest, we all want to build valuable relationships but disctretion is definitely necessary.

As all Jamaicans worldwide know, one of this century's funniest men in drama is without a doubt Jamaican lauriat Oliver Samuels. My people know & appreciate good theatre & we go out in our stylish fashions when we shwo full support of our cultural happenings. I caught a glimpse of some beautiful end of summer / Florida fall trends on our favorite runway...the streets of course! Here's a few of my favorite audience me...

One of the best parts of traveling is the reading time it affords. So seeing the super thick issue of September's VOGUE at every marketplace I went to before leaving Miami had me practically salivating on command {~ lol ~}. I grabbed a copy for the plane ride to Kingston and was obviously brimming with glee to open it's first pages. There is always such endless inspiration for image makers in the iconic publication t...

Are you the woman who finds shopping frustrating and intimidating OR the woman who's open to trying new style trends until she finds the look she likes, OR PERHAPS, the woman who knows what compliments her frame and personality and owns her signature style regardless of others acceptance!? It's important to understand, it's not the language of the clothes but the expression of y...

I don't know about you but I most certainly am missing the old Erykah Badu's unapologetically regal fashion styling. I know I know, artists are ever evolving beings who cannot stay trapped in a box, I get it, it's so meh. She still pays the occasional homage to the Motherland with hair styling, ankara fabric & tribal inspired makeup but I'm just saying though....am I the only one who's tired of seeing Ms. Badu in ove...

On a beautiful Sunday afternoon during Ankara Miami Fashion Week 2015, at the Alessandra Gold Concept Store's Ankara Miami Pop Up Shop, an idea was born. I walked into the AGCS photography studio where a most interesting conversation was taking place. Erika Everett or "E" of Unapologetic Presence was enveloped in dialogue with the creator of Plateau Fashion Magazine, a local publication that stratgeically provides a...

Now I have to confess that while everybody was jumping on the "Queen Bey" band wagon in high school, I was always the skeptic. I was really just SOOO OVER all of the sexually charged lyrics & choreography all the time like, how much sex can 1 teenager take!?!?? But in my maturity & expansive love for fashion, art, and culture as a whole I cannot deny that Beyonce is clearly an icon of the most accomplished breed. Whe...

So it's been quite a while since my last post & my true MCM's have wondered where I've been :) (Thanks a mil for asking!) I was totally consumed in the works for my partnership with The Tom Joyner Foundation. The foundation's annual art gallery fundraiser takes place on The Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage cruise. I premiered 15 pieces in my new original art series called "The Vision Project", while on board and I receive...
