NOSTALGIA

Before my husband and I had our twins, we would travel every three to four months. In the short time we have been married, we have visited various cities in Africa, Europe, Middle East, United States and a small island in South Polynesia. Every time we came back home, we would find ourselves inspired and cultured and would immediately start planning for our next trip. All our trips were focused around visiting a city because of their food, history or architecture. And we rarely went back because many times, we would find hidden gems within my new hometown that reminded me…

SWEAT

Coming from Seattle, it’s amazing how much I took their outdoor shopping malls for granted. I remember spending hours at various outdoor malls because you could get everything you needed without feeling like you went to a physical mall.

The traffic and driving down one lane at at a time hunting for parking…

To my friend who I know reads my blog, yes…

TONES

As a stylist working in the tech industry, I have a lot of women tell me that they feel uninspired when dressing for success in the workplace. I’ve noticed that a lot of women believe that they should be wearing masculine inspired pieces at work in order to be seen as an equal in their profession… Ladies, this is so far from the truth! As women, we have a lot of options and pieces that we can play with when dressing for success in the workplace. Displaying your personality through your outfit will spark that inspiration you’re lacking and will also leave…
