Destination New York | OOTD Video

Happy Tuesday:

It’s my last day in New York City!

What better way to spend my last day then with an NYC themed OOTD video. This one was filmed by one of my good friends, Kendrin; also known as Koid24 on Instagram. Filming is his thing and I am so happy we manage to get a little collaboration video in before I left permanently.

The vision was most definitely in sync: I couldn’t be happier with the end result.

Kae and I were treated to a lil’ bowling date by Kendrin & his bae a few weeks ago. Just sit back, relax, and relive a NYC night with me.

Thank you so much for stopping by & watching!

Mad love, forever & always.

I am a proud Taurus. I know some folks aren’t into their horoscopes but I am a total horoscope junkie – I love to read them on the daily! One of the many known traits of Taurus’s is the fact that we are Earth signs – we love all things nature, and green. I totally have a connection with mother Earth and wanted to dedicate an entire post to all of her glory:

The dress is from H&M: I am in love with how delicate and dainty I feel in it; it’s totally spot on as far as capturing the ‘bohemian’ vibes I’m constantly yearning for.

The earrings are from a local jewelry designer here in Bushwick who I happened to meet at my last Flea Market vending event; these are definitely my current go-to accessory. To check out her Instagram click here.

Both my shoes and clutch were thrifted. I will forever be a promoter of thrifting and recycling clothing. For my top 8 tips on thrifting, be sure to click here.

I’m also thinking about dedicating a post/video to the issues of Fast Fashion and how fashion really does feed off of our consumerist culture. This is something that I have personally been affected by and want to try to make a positive change in. Please let me know if anyone is interested in learning more about fast fashion and its effects on our planet!

As always thank you for stopping by!

Till next time,

How I Style: BF Jeans | Video

 

Happy Thursday:

I’m a bit late on the ‘boyfriend jean’ bandwagon, I wont lie.

BUT, in my defense, they are intimidating – I never saw myself as the type of gal who could pull off the ‘boyfriend’ look, especially with having hips & a bit of a booty. Thank you, mama. To my surprise, I found that they are actually very fun to style. There are endless amounts of ways to rock ’em, really, & I dig it. As far as styling goes, I normally like being super baggy when rocking my BF jeans: wearing an oversized tee while wearing booties or heels to fem up the look is my go-to.

Side Note: I am currently playing around with tighter silhouettes when it comes to rocking my BF Jeans – definitely stay tuned for future outfit posts featuring them! Side Side Note: I recently went thrifting & found a distressed pair, those will also be featured soon.

What are your favorite ways to style your boyfriend jeans? Please feel free to comment down below!

Urban Room Tour NYC | Video

Happy Friday:

When YouTube first became a thing, I remember watching room tour videos non-stop, completely obsessed with how people decorated their rooms to represent and inspire their everyday lives. I always dreamed of having my own room – designed the way I wanted – but I had always shared my room with someone, which was no fun.

When I moved in with my boyfriend, though it was tough adjusting, we found that both of our aesthetics complimented each other really well. Designing our room has been a collaborative thing, and I couldn’t be more happier with the way it looks. The vibes are  just right.

Darien – who is my boyfriend – was sweet enough to rearrange the room the week I did running crew at my school.  The timing was perfect, especially since we are approaching the new year. There are lots of changes happening in my life at the moment & I can’t help but be thankful for this growth I am experiencing.

Though change can be scary, change is necessary for growth, and brings you a step closer to where it is you want to be in life. Never reject change, you never know what magic can happen as a result of being strong enough to endure that change. I can talk about the beauty of change forever, I swear. Let’s get back to the point of this post, though:

I hope you guys enjoy room tours as much as me.

Welcome from Brooklyn, New York:

What do you think of my room?

Thank you so much for watching! If you’re in school, I hope you are surviving finals – we’re almost there!

‘Till next time,
