To be honest, I am not even sure what I actually want to blog about. Nevertheless, since I have been drawing blanks for so long, I decided to just freestyle this post.
About nearly a month ago, I had the pleasure to meet Ardean, a super talented Toronto-based photographer. I have been reading her blog for some times now and I love her photography. She has a unique way of capturing one’s soul. Anyways, I contacted her and one thing leading to another, I was standing in front of her camera lens! She immediately made me feel right at home and I had an amazing time working with her.
As you probably know, I very rarely wear dresses. I actually purchased this one just for my shoot with Adrean. However, since I thought it looked so cute, I decided to recreate my own photoshoot with this outfit. I had a ton of fun capturing these images. A stranger actually stopped to ask me if I was getting married! haha. Maybe one day.
If you are interested on how I achieved this hairstyle, I have a tutorial here.
Remember me? Well, I hope so. I am bringing you this outfit that I wore last sunday. It was my boyfriend’s nephew baptism so I dressed up a bit. I really love the pattern on my top and I paired it with this blazer, which I am absolutely in love with. I am hoping to make posts like this more frequently, now that the weather is FINALLY nice. My hair is a bantu knot out that didn’t dry properly but the results were fantastic. I honestly LOVE bantu knot out. I can easily say that it is my favourite hairstyle…ever.

Today was actually SO nice here. It was sunny with a high of 6 degrees! It might not seem warm for a lot of you but considering the fact that it was -40 degrees less then a month ago, I would say I was burning! 🙂 Anyways, I had a pretty nice day, just enjoying the little things that life has to offer. How is your week-end going?
Happy Valentine’s day!!!
I hope you guys enjoy this day and remember, it is the simple things in life that we often forget!
As you probably know by now, I cut my hair and I ABSOLUTELY love it. Healthy hair is so much more easier to style. I have less breakage and tangles. Granted, I do have way less hair to deal with but I am telling you, I am in love. I achieved this style with Goody perm rods, which I purchased from Walmart for $1.50! What a steal!
I started with washed and conditioned hair as usual and used the Giovanni Direct Leave in. I also used my shea butter mix to seal in the moisture. I set my hair with the rods and made sure that my hair was completely dry before taking down the twists.
Jewelry: F21 and Garage
I am finally getting around to upload this style that I did over the holidays. It was super cold/snowy, but that doesn’t stop one from looking super cute right?
I used flexi rods to accomplished this look and I absolutely loved the results.
1. I washed and conditioned my hair using Tresemme Naturals.
2. I used Fleurtzy Curls Nurture Cream to style (Love this her products).
3. I used a hooded dryer to speed up the process but you can just let your hair set over night.
4. Used a little extra virgin olive oil to fluff my hair and VOILA!

I went to a wedding about 3 weeks ago and this is what I wore:
Shirt: Le Chateau
Bag: Isn’t mine LOL, It belongs to one of the girls. Speaking of which, this is what they had on:
This top has been sitting in my wardrobe for at least 6 months! I have this bad habit of buying new things and forgetting about them. Anyways, when I “found” it today, I just knew I had to wear it.
Bracelets: Forever 21
Ring: Aldo Accessories
Today was such a great day here in Ottawa. It was just bright and hot. This is really unusual and being originally from Miami, I was loving the weather. This is what I wore. I hope you like! (:
