Girl, you are winning my heart over more and more! Opening up, expressing your badazz sexuality, and expressing the pertinence that Jay-Z understand the #GirlBoss that he has!!! I have said it once and will say it again, "Who cheats on Beyonce?" and WHYYYYY!!!! I have asked my boyfriend this question all day after experiencing Beyonce's Formation World Tour last night. And also while prancing aroun...

So I know it's been a while Mavens! No excuses though.....except [~silently screams with excitement!!!~] my wedding photography business INNOVATIVE ARTS PHOTOGRAPHY has been totally taking over my timeline lately, [~in a really really good way~].

Here in Miami, our cultural fashion radars are on 10 right about now as Black history month has begun and Ankara Miami Fashion Week is in the air! Now the only question is ........WHAT DO I WEAR??!!!!

Now we all know that Rihanna has transformed the way we look at fashion all together. Her fiercely bold attitude and risque choices inspire us all to do what resonates most with us, no matter what others will think. My favorite Rihanna moments are when she goes Indigenous/African/Roots inspired in any way shape or form showing the world that she knows where she comes from and unapologetically embraces her roots. Now...

As all Jamaicans worldwide know, one of this century's funniest men in drama is without a doubt Jamaican lauriat Oliver Samuels.

Funnily enough, as small as my isand of Jamaica actually is in comparison to the many countries of the world, our heroes pack a monumental punch {~we likkle but we tallawaa!~} Of course our first international super star who actually put Jamaica in the global spotlight is none other than the Honorable Robert Nesta Marley or as we call him 'Bob'.




I had the pleasure and honor of visiting The Bob Marley Museum on my r...

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...

A few of you who know me personally are aware that I am a Director in my father's succesful export business, Caribbean Shipping & Consolidating Corp., a freight forwarding NVOCC operating out of Miami, FL. Our family proudly traveled to Jamaica this past weekend to celebrate his 20th anniversary with his largest clientele base in the Caribbean Jamaica's capital, Kingston.

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 I the only one who's tired of seeing Ms. Badu in ove...
