We all have our go-to pieces that seem to work perfectly with almost every outfit we put together. mine are above along with some new pieces i’ve added to the collection that i can’t seem to leave the house without … As you may know, i’ve recently acquired a skull obsession. but other than that, you will normally see me rocking rose gold items or pieces that...
Long Hair, Don't Care.
for those of you who know me personally, hair is not my forte. with this said, my usual look is comeouttheshower-applymousse-twirlthefront and boomimdone. but every so often, i will go to get the hair taken care of. it’s too thick to go without a trim for some time. (at this moment, all of my curly hair friends are like ‘YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THICK IS’ - but trust me, i have a lot...
i’ve recently found myself gravitating towards skulls. now don’t get me wrong…i don’t have a collection of skull accessories but the 3 that i have collected so far have suited me quite well. i just love how different.chic.badass it can be all at the same damn time. what trends/patterns have you been leaning towards as of late?
Things I Want That You May Want: Clutches & Purses
It’s Summer … a time where all of us New Yorkers break from our black and grey hues and jump into bold pops of colors. We’re a tad bit friendlier and more on the social scene. Hit up the streets of NYC on a Thursday and you will be greeted by the plethora of peeps making their way to the bars (for a day I call “Thirsty Thursdays”). With all this in mind, who REALLY...
InstaShots: Passing On By.
A lot of things have happened recently (all good!) which has made me M.I.A. But now that I’ve gotten settled, I’d like to introduce to you a new feature called “InstaShots”, which will focus on my life told through Instagram. Here’s what’s happened while I’ve been away… sneaker crazed; south beach lebrons & jordan 3s sneaker crazed...
Accessory Artists Preview
hello wonderful people! last week i was invited to the Accessory Artists preview here in New York. Not only did it involve beautiful accessories but the event was filled with other glam activities such as mini-makeovers and hair braiding. I went with my friends Kaitlyn and Rani (who is running for Miss USA so be sure to check her out here.) of course we had to take advantage of the...
Way Back When: *NSYNC
oh yes, friends. i took it there. last evening, i decided to gather up some tunes and update the ol ipod. because of this i stumbled upon Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” which for some odd reason made me instantly think of *NSYNC’s “Girlfriend” feat. Nelly. i decided to pause on Justin and give the original Justin (via *NSYNC) a listen, which made me dive into...
for the Frill feature: Sentina
there’s your sister, your brother, your cousin … and then there’s my cousin, Sentina. Charismatic and Eccentric are two (mild) words that can be used to describe her. but it’s her infectious zaniness that made this photo shoot one of the easiest i’ve ever done. she even took me out for City Island shrimp after! and trust me, that’s HUGE. WHO: My name is...
animal heads Plus bling.
my, my, my, what do we have here? timeless designs mixed with fresh twists courtesy of the new brand, C. Wonder. i first heard about C. Wonder a few months ago from a co-worker of mine. shortly after, a storefront popped up in my local mall. of course i visited it. and i must tell you, i was blown away. all of their pieces are so eye-catching. they definitely are not for the faint of heart....
Yes, Yes I am quite aware, it has been some time friends. No, this blog wasn’t neglected, I just needed some time to spruce it up and make sure the blog was reflecting exactly what i wanted. A lot has happened in between the last post and now. I’ve spruced up the look of the blog (DO YOU LIKE IT!?), our Facebook page has converted to Timeline … I took advantage of an online...

etsy finds of the week: SPIKES

The Hunt for the Great iPhone Case
i know, i KNOW … it’s been over a week since my last post but i’ve been battling the PLAGUE! i was literally knocked out in bed for about a week. and i am happy to say that i’m finally recovering. anywhoo, due to the tragic demise of my iphone case, i’ve spent the past couple of weeks searching for a case that was more … me. i tracked down a few great finds....

as many of you are aware, the Christmas holiday has just passed. and a few of my loved ones gifted me with some fabulous accessories: Limited Edition Rayban Wayfarers - for those of you who don’t know, i will spare you the tragic story about how i was picked “randomly” at Tampa Airport to get my baggage checked, in which i left my Aviator Raybans in the plastic bin and...
my apologies, my apologies. this post is coming at you at 9:24PM on a Tuesday. i know that’s unacceptable but holiday is CRAY! i’ve finally completed my shopping so now it’s time to sit back and relax (hopefully). this tuesday’s etsy post was inspired by a curator (who’s name i didn’t catch - good job, alissa) who’s treasury included a lot of turquoise...
Chevron print is very pops (or popular - sometimes i try to make up words as if i’m cool) as of late. You can find them on clothing, accessories, and even nails. I recently found some cute stuff on Etsy that revolved around Chevron. You can buy them for yourself or a gift since the holidays are fast approaching. i still have 10 people on my list. wah. Yellow and White Chevron Carry on...
