Lately we’ve been experiencing warmer and sunnier days, which means we will be able to break out our shorts, dresses, and my favorite…sunglasses!
Sunglasses are an obvious summertime essential and now is the time when you should start scouting out the frames you plan on rocking this summer. My friends over at Warby Parker just launched their Spring 2017 collection of sunglasses that feature new silhouettes and acetates for the season! I’m telling you, these glasses are on a whole new level of diva. Plus, these glasses won’t leave your bank account empty. If you’re like me and like to ball on a budget then this is perfect.
I’m thinking add a flower crown (or the snapchat filter) and I’m ready for Coachella 2017
How about an all white jumpsuit, nude clutch, and these bad boys right here
So, say you like a pair but, like me, you like to try them before you buy them. Well, Warby Parker offers the option of being able to try on sunglasses in your own home with the Home Try-On. You can select the frames that stand out to you or take the quiz and they can give you suggestions based on your results.
Warby Parker is also great because they partner with non-profit organizations like VisionSpring to make sure that when you buy a pair of glasses, a pair is also given to someone who is in need.
Time to get ready for summer!
So three months ago, as you may or may not know, I cut off all the hair on my head that was chemically relaxed. That left me with a short, tapered, and curly fro. I was unsure about the look at first, however, I knew it was a step in the direction of being able to enjoy my natural curls.
Since the chop, I’ve been keeping a very low maintenance hair routine (depending on what you call low maintenance). I shampoo and condition my tresses for 45-60 minutes every 7-10 days and keep it in braids underneath my wig.
The wig that I’m currently wearing I made with two 18-inch bundles, a 16-inch bundle, and a 14-inch closure.
I wear it on a regular basis because it has the texture of what natural hair would feel like if it was blow dried and maybe flat ironed, which is why people always stop and ask “Wow! Your hair is so long! Is it all yours?”. That’s when I have to let dreadfully let them down and tell them the truth. Why not just tell them it is my hair? Because why lie? That way, I can also promote myself as a wig maker :]
Here are some updated pics:
This was after I took my cornrows out. AKA a braid out
I’ve noticed some length between when I cut my hair and now. It’s literally not even an inch but it’s growth !
You know I had to throw a little filter on there.
I could always use some hair inspo, so if you have encouraging words drop them in the comments below !

This is the time of the year when the weather starts to change up on us. We’ll have a week of frigid air followed by a few days of sun, which lets us know that spring is right around the corner. Here a few good things to have this month.
1. Leather Jacket
There are two times of the year when I break out my leather jacket. Fall and the beginning of spring when the weather is cold in the early morning and at night. Leather jackets are essential to a wardrobe. They keep you warm (depending on what kind you buy) and they a good look for a night out or just to add an edge to your attire.
Fishnets have been popping up all over my Instagram feed and I must say, I am loving it. The trend is easy and edgy. I rocked the look a few years ago in college (just saying) but I’m glad it is sticking now. I especially like the fishnets that stop at the ankle because I feel like it’s a different take on the trend.
The athleisure thing is happening right now. Peeps are adding simple track suit bottoms to their look or dressing up their comfiest matching sweat outfit and taking it to the streets. Comfy + fashionable is pretty ideal for anyone. I saw one of those “You can’t sit with us!” track suits and decided not to buy it in the hopes of finding something…honestly I don’t know what I was looking for. But, you know what they say, nothing haunts you like the things you didn’t buy.
*I need an a whole suit like this, with a trench style jacket to match! Where can I get this?!?
