Devoted to Black #DevotedToDenim

Have you ever had a movie inspire your look for the day? Last night I went to a friends place for movie night and a group of us were watching Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Needless to say, the movie had a profound effect on me…style wise. The next day, when I entered my closet I kept gravitating towards anything in black. This isn’t the first time I have gravitated towards this color. I usually go all black, everything black, when I cannot figure out what to wear. The result – my overall look is simple, elegant and refined. If you live on the East Coat,…

Dubai

I recently got back from my trip to Dubai and it was amazing! I have been to Dubai a few times before but this was the first time I actually took the opportunity to get to know the city, the history and its people. Doing this gave me the opportunity to see the city in a completely different perspective and I can’t wait to visit again. Today I wanted to share with you the details of my travel to Dubai, from the various tour groups we used, accommodations, restaurants we tried and loved, plus throw in some highlights of our trip.

Vatican City is the hub where you can get a chance to see some of the most famous paintings and sculptures in the world…..or to me, I can finally get a chance to see The Creation of Adam and Pieta!!!!

Travel Diaries : Rome, Italy

If you have been following my Instagram account account, you know I recently got back from Italy. I have been dreaming of going to Italy since I was 13 years old. I remember the first time my mother gave me this hard cover book on Roman history and the foundation of their empire and all I could think about was walking in the same city that Caesar, Plato and Socrates had. I spent the first four days in Italy exploring the following venues: -Colosseum – Private Night Tour -Roman Forum -Pantheon -Trevi Fountain -Spanish Steps -Vatican Museum -Sistine Chapel -Saint…
