Video: Q&A with the fiance

My fiance and I answered some questions we were asked by some of my followers on Instagram. It was awkward, but what you see is what you get. This video is a true reflection of our relationship. My fiance is ridiculous. I had no idea he was holding a spatula the whole time we were […]

Mango Gelato

I have a love-hate relationship with the Meatpacking Disctrict. I love the aesthetics of the small neighborhood. I enjoy dining and grabbing a cocktail or two at many of the restaurants. I’m in love with the cobblestoned streets even if I trip and wobble every other step. However, I typically despise some of the pompous […]

Berrilicious spinach apple smoothie

Green smoothies can make delicious, fresh, healthy, colorful breakfasts or lunches. They’re also great to have as a healthy mid-day snack. I love adding them in my diet every now and then. They leave me feel energized through out the day, and keep me motivated to be more health conscious with my other meals. Since […]

White on White in Miami

One of my favorite summer colors is white. It’s just so easy to wear. It makes everything look classy, and it’s a great canvas if you love to wear lots of accessories. I love white pants especially. They accentuate the booty and give curves to women like me who lack them. I paired my white […]

Dominican Republic’s “Ethnic Cleansing” of Haitians

It bring tears to my eyes to see my brothers and sisters who have been working under the most unfavorable circumstances for decades on the same island as their country of origin to be dehumanized and humiliated in such way. The Dominican government plans to expel Haitians, or anyone black enough to be Haitian out […]

Gaudy

When I was in high school, right when I was getting comfortable with speaking English, a classmate looked at me and said with an accusatory tone that made me blush, “You’re so gaudy!” I felt bad without knowing the meaning of the word. I could tell by the way she spat her statement that she […]

Travel Files: A stroll through Old San Juan

Kali picked me up from my hotel Friday afternoon. I climbed in her car, and we formally introduced ourselves to each other. It was our very first time meeting. I immediately noticed her striking bone structure and kind eyes. She wore minimal makeup, a headwrap styled into a mohawk and red lips. She told me […]

Travel Files: Puerto Rico in May

I stayed in a small boutique hotel just steps away from a beautiful, quiet beach. Acacia Hotel was perfect for my budget during that time, and is conveniently located near plenty of small, trendy boutiques and cute restaurants. My king sized room with a private balcony, over looking the pristine beach, glistened in the sunlight. […]

My little pink dress

I love girly things. But what I love even more are comfy, girly things. This little pink bubblegum dress makes me feel happy to be a lady. It’s playful, comfortable, and just so freakin’ cute! I wanted to play with pastels while incorporating my Fanm Djanm head wrap. I  neutralized the look with some nude, […]

A mini documentary on Fanm Djanm

Fanm Djanm was recently featured on morning talk show BKLive this past Wednesday on channels Time Warner 756 and Verizon FiOS 46, and Cablevision 70. It was extremely humbling experience for me. I just want to show people who are interested the way I see colors in this world. I want to show the way […]
