Travel Diary: Miami

Miami is one of my favorite cities to visit. It’s an easy/affordable flight from New York City, which makes it the perfect getaway. The past few times I’ve visited Miami, my focus was beach, beach, pool, beach. But when I went to Miami last month my focus was completely different. I was in Miami for 24 hours for a layover during my trip to Cuba. So instead of focusing on the beach, I decided to spend the day exploring Miami’s Wynwood Art District. I spent the day there in my favorite dress from Universal Standard. The Geneva dress is becoming an essential part of my travel wardrobe. I can style this dress in so many ways and it feels like a…

You Absolutely Need This Vest

You absolutely need this vest. I’ve seen a bunch of my fashion friends rocking it and I finally got my hands on one (okay, I got two, in two different colors…). This vest has been in heavy rotation for me because it’s so versatile, making it appropriate for any occasion. In the past month I’ve literally worn this vest on a date, to a business meeting and while singing at church.

How to Swim with Straight, Relaxed and Natural Hair (including Sisterlocks!)

I swim every other day. You often ask me how I keep my hair hydrated and soft with my swim schedule and honestly it took some time and research for me to figure out the best approach. Swimming often is great for my health, but it can be really hard on my hair if I’m not careful. I also have eczema on my scalp, so I have to balance that as well. Here is the easy process that I use to keep my hair healthy while I keep my body healthy in the pool. Step One (Pre-Swim): Get in the shower before you get in the pool Think of your hair like a sponge. If you take a dry sponge…

My Favorite Looks from Eva Mendes for New York & Company

New York & Company has always been a classic store for me. I have this really vivid memory of being a plus size teenager and discovering that I could rock clothes from New York & Company. The clothes weren’t plus size, but they were… roomy and more trendy than what was available at the traditional plus size stores. Also I couldn’t really do my own online shopping till I was older and New York and Company was in the mall so it was an easier experience for me when my parents would give me money. Did any of you shop here in your younger years? I’m not sure when New York & Company fell off of my radar, but I’ll…

5 Reasons You Should Get a Bike

Note: I shot pictures for this post after a 40 minute bike ride, so all the smiles and makeup free sweaty goodness is the real deal! I’ve wanted a bike for a long time, but I was scared! I was scared because I live in NYC and the traffic is dangerous enough as a pedestrian, so the idea of becoming part of traffic with a bike seemed like something only adventurous people would do. I was also scared because my apartment is in a walk up building and bringing a heavy bike up and down the stairs seemed… risky. But over the summer, I kept seeing people on bikes. This year it seemed like more than ever. Cute girls in…
