Holiday Gift List

Hi everyone and happy holidays! I can’t believe that it’s already that time of year again when Starbucks has their holiday drinks (and dare I mention cups?) out, snow is starting to fall, and Christmas is coming right around the corner. So if you are anything like me you are all about the giving this season (even though receiving isn’t half bad either) and are trying to figure out the perfect gift for that special someone as well as your friends and family! Having trouble? No fear! Because I’ve been doing some research and have compiled a holiday “gift list” of 10 unique items suitable for guys and gals! Let’s get to it shall we?
  1. Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Kit
    • With cold weather lurking around the corner and winter activities such as ice skating, snowman building, and snowball fights ensuing, you’re going to want to keep your hands from getting chapped and dry right? That’s why the Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Kit is a perfect gift for the holiday season! And as the Burt’s website states: “With Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream to nourish, Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme and Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream to moisturize, this kit has everything you need for naturally beautiful hands.” Now I think that’s a gift anyone would love!

Veronica Marché has a marker and a stylish vision!

About a month ago I saw a really nice illustration of Malia Obama on my FB feed, and it had a “fashion-y” approach to it that immediately caught my eye. I was very intrigued because I loooove all types of illustrations, especially fashion illustrations. I then followed the links back to the artist of this work and immediately became a fan! It was so refreshing to see a young illustrator focusing on creating beautiful images that highlight and celebrate Black Women.

After I perused through her website/bio/external links… I learned that Veronica is currently working on her Master’s Degree in Fashion Design, at the same school that I attended for my degree! More than being just an artist and student, I realized she is wearing many hats and wears them very well! Continue Reading

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. As a marker it typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end. Memorial Day has also become a long weekend increasingly devoted to shopping, family gatherings, fireworks, trips to the beach, and national media events such as the Indianapolis 500 auto race. –

We will officially welcome the start to “lazy summer days” this weekend! During which many of us (here in the States) will attend beach parties, backyard BBQ’s and top it all off with a few nights of going out. Not to forget the real reason for celebrating Memorial Day, let’s try to pay tribute to the holiday with “Americana” themed weekend style. We’ve put together 3 different looks, (Beachy Keen, Grill Stripe Chic, and Flirty/Fitted- Festive/Flowy) that will be perfect for your various holiday weekend festivities.
