She’s 25!

The title itself needs no introduction! Last Monday marked my twenty something birthday as you may have read a few posts ago (click here to be reminded). If you must know, I turned 25 last Monday and I wasn’t ready for the responsibilities that came with being half a century old. This past Saturday, my […]

Belly: Hip-Hop Classic or Fashionable Film?

So there I was on a Saturday night, watching Belly for the 10978890th time. If you were born in the 90’s, you’re probably familiar with this 1998 classic directed by Hype Williams. Why is it iconic? The first five minutes of the film involves two of the biggest names in hip-hop, enter a local club […]

Clueless

    I would like to start off this post by giving a shout out to three dope ass people:  1.) Leandra Medine, founder of the blog  Man Repeller for making it look cool to wear a white tee under a black tank 2.) Melissa from Muse x Malu where she recreated the look with a […]

Killa Cam

Cruz Control

    Another day, another grind. Seems to be the case these past few weeks but ay, gotta eat somehow. This past week has been nothing but a positive one and it has left me hysterical… hysterical in the sense that I was so happy that I burst into tears like a Drake crying meme. […]

North by Northwest

  No, not the classic spy thriller film North By Northwest starring the charming Carey Grant, although I encourage you all to watch that film. I mean North West, that cute two-year old lightskin child whose face gracefully covers the front pages of OK! and InTouch magazine on stands at your local grocery store. You’ve […]

Moodboard: London Calling

  Don’t get me wrong, as much as I enjoy watching models strut run down the runway in the finest luxury garments, I do believe the real runway resides on the everyday busy streets in the biggest fashion capitals of the world: New York, Paris, Milan and London.
