I had a few blog posts planned for early this month, but like many of you, I needed to take a pause.ย  The increasingly publicized and irrefutable stories of racial injustice particularly towards the Black Community was, and is, so heartbreaking.ย  As a minority, I have always been strongly aware and sensitive to racism that exists in our society, mostly because I experienced or witnessed it.ย  In light of recent events, I am even more shocked, disheartened, and frustrated by the disparity of racial injustice that continues to negatively impact the Black Community.

Jeans, Tops & Comfy Clothes to Wear Now & Later

Wearing Agolde Jeans and Madewell T-Shirt in NYC / Jeans, Tops and Comfy Clothes to Wear Now

So, what have you been wearing lately? At the onset of the “stay-at-home” order in New York, I dressed mostly in athleisure. Aside from being more comfortable, I thought that I’d be more inclined to exercise while stuck at home if I dressed for it, or at least that’s what I told myself… Well, the reality is that it didn’t make me exercise more and, in fact, made me feel less motivated overall.ย  So now I am back to dressing a little more like I did before. Previously, due to my lifestyle and profession in a more creative field, I didn’t often dress formally or with a corporate style but I did always try to look put together (mostly with jeans, my wardrobe must-have).

Best Hand and Body Lotions to Moisturize

Emergin C Hand and Body Lotions to Moisturize

Hi everyone! Hope you are well and staying healthy. I live in New York and my kids’ schools closed due to the COVID-19 virus almost 3 weeks ago, so we’ve had a little extra time to settle into our ‘stay-at-home’ routine. Even still, it’s a bizarre new reality that I sometimes forget when I wake up in the morning. Fortunately, we’ve been relatively healthy (knock on wood), so can’t complain. In fact, this ‘pause’ on life is exactly what I needed. Continue Reading →

Scoop NYC – They’re back and affordable!

Wearing Scoop Peplum top in bright pink.

The ’90’s are having their moment in fashion right now and I’m surprised (and happy) to say… I love it!ย  Although I thought some of the looks/trends, like high-waisted jeans, were questionable at the time, it was an exciting time to celebrate personal style especially with a show like “SATC” with Sarah Jessica Parker.ย  A store that helped inspire and fuel new excitement and creativity in fashion in the ’90’s was Scoop NYC.
