vibe with me

Tis’ the season for all things festival related! Concerts, outdoor music events, Coachella, Greatest Day Ever and more. If you could pick your ultimate line up who would be on that list? I think I’d definitely want a mix of Beyoncé, MIA, FKA Twigs, Jbalvin, Kanye & Drake hello! Too many to list, but somewhere along those group of people. Secondly, finding the perfect outfit for a festival event is major key! Read More

“Going on a girls trip;
I need about 4 outfits. I’ve packed 35 just to be safe”

What a better way, than to spend an entire weekend with your girls in one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Turks & Caicos. If you have never been to Turks & Caicos, you, my friend are missing out on some of the clearest, turquoise water you will ever see! And even though we were only there for a few days, we were able to cram in lots of activities. It’s a small island, but the area where we stayed in definitely wasn’t cheap! These coffee cups you see us holding were merely 6 dollars a piece! Other items found at the local supermarket were also pretty expensive, let’s just say most things were double the regular price you’re used to paying for.    Read More

How to Boost Your Hair Color & Shine Using Clairol Professional Beautiful Collection

02.21.18

Don’t you just hate those in between phases of your hair where the color looks dull and needs a boost to revive it? Thankfully, there are such things like glosses and formulated dyes to boost your hair color. Sometimes when you frequently use shampoo it can strip your color-treated hair, often leaving it to appear lifeless. Recently, I revisited an old staple of mine to boost my hair color and shine. Clairol Professional’s Beautiful Collection, not only is it ammonia free, but it’s moisturizing and infused with jojoba oils! Check out the video below to see how I refreshed and brought my color back to life.

If you don’t know who Samantha Black is by now, where have you been!?. Not only has she worked with some of the biggest fashion names in the industry, but she was also a part of the Project Runway cast in 2013. In addition to that,  many celebrities have also worn her pieces, including:  Angela Simmons, Keri Hilson, La la Anthony, Beyonce (Yes you read that right, BEYONCE) and more.

In 2016, I had the opportunity to work with Sam during fashion week, as she was the lead Designer opening The Texture on the Runway Show with Dark & Lovely. I was one of the few models chosen to showcase Samantha Black’s designs that were specifically made for the show.  That evening, Samantha opened the show with a bang!

Her vision and aesthetic is quite unique, yet very New York.  Can you imagine how thrilled I was to hear Samantha was hosting a holiday dinner along with a preview of her new collection.  Check out a sneak peek of her exclusive new collection below. Read More
