Sensational Saturday: L Train Vintage Furs

I’m driving through Williamsburg, Brooklyn and could not help but stop into one of my favorite vintage stores. I’ve been trying to find a teddy bear coat or fur coat because they are on trend. I tend to follow trends, not to the extreme, but add maybe one piece that is on trend at the…

Photo Walk: Apple Store Downtown Brooklyn

It’s Saturday, 2:30pm and 50 degrees in January, in a usually blistery Brooklyn, NY. The warm weather really brings the entire borough out. It’s a great time to vibe, walk and really take in all of the great sights (architecture, colors, flavors) and sounds of Brooklyn. That is exactly what we did a bit of…

Saturday Night Lights: Stewart Hotel NYC

Is there anything better than spending a Saturday night in NYC? Face it. The answer is, “no.”  I had the opportunity to spend a Saturday night in a fantastic hotel opposite Madison Square Garden at the stylishly chic Stewart Hotel recently. First off, you enter the lobby and feel like you’ve been transported to sunny…

Sunday Brunch: Goop Edition

I find it absolutely amazing that actress, Gwyneth Paltrow had the vision to start a lifestyle website/blog years ago and turned it into a multi-million dollar empire. I have been a fan of Goop for years, since it’s inception actually, and have watched the site grow from some recipes and lifestyle pictures to a world…

Hudson Hotel: NYC Staycation

There is nothing I love more than an overnight stay in Manhattan. As a Brooklynite, Manhattan is a stones throw from home but it seems worlds away from Brooklyn. Well, truthfully, Brooklyn now feels like the new Manhattan. I still enjoy the respite. Maybe I just like waking up in a new space. A new…

Coins, Cheddar, Cloth Talk: Money Edition

You’ve heard DJ Khalad tell the message to the people, “secure the bag!” Now, just in case you aren’t versed in hip hop culture, the simple meaning for “securing the bag” is make money and secure or save it. Secure-(adj)- fixed or fastened so as not to give way, become loose, or be lost. There is…

What I Wore Today: Bomb Cyclone Edition

If you are on the East Coast you are probably snowed in today. We’ve been experiencing some fridigit temps for the past few weeks on the East Coast. Our friends in the South have also had unseasonably cold temperatures. It’s like 44 degrees in Miami at night! Why?! The unfair temperatures have forced me to…

Holiday Wrap Up

It always feels like we anticipate Christmas and the December holiday season for months yet when they do they come, they tend to leave us briskly. There is something to be said for awaiting Christmas morning and remembering the joy you felt as a kid. I don’t know many adults who have the same anticipation…

Peaches Shrimp and Crab: Brooklyn Brunch

Let me start of by saying that I am a Brooklynite who doesn’t really brunch. I know, it doesn’t make sense. All the beautiful people in Brookyn get decked out (stylish not Sunday Best) to leisurely hang at their favorite brunch spot. They don’t mind waiting on long lines to feast on sweet and savory…

Weekend Wind-down

The winter weekends call for comfy, warm and inviting spaces as well as routines that include beauty and eats. Ren Skincare is great for exfoliating and softening  my face. My Instyle magazine is never too far behind. It keeps me posted on all of the latest trends. A glass of red is good for the…

Welcome BET Her

  Did you notice a few months ago that your Centric TV switched over to BET Her? There were teaser promos for BET’s “Her” channel while Centric TV was still alive. I was excited to see the snippets of women of color who did not fit the convention for average body size and there weren’t…
