What is sensuality?

Alejandro and I are long time friends. He’s been photographing me for years. A while back he said I was his muse. I got excited at the thought of being someone’s muse so we shot plenty. Many of the photos are not even published. I’ve watched him grow into an amazing photographer. And I know […]

Saturday Night out in Harlem

My fiance and I decided to meet some friends in Harlem for some drinks and dancing. The couple lives on the Upper West Side and doesn’t go out in Harlem much. We thought the best way to spend our night was to start with perfectly crafted cocktails at 67 Orange, then take a short cab […]

Dashiki Print Matching Set

I’m obsessed with matching sets. Really I am! So, I decided to make some for Fanm Djanm. The brand is about living colorfully and boldly, but I want it to remain effortless. I know what you’re thinking… Bold, colorful, and effortless, how? Well, I think it’s possible! I like simple clothing with bold accessories. I […]

Cooking with Nadege: Arugula Shrimp Salad

She’s one of my favorite Haitian women in New York City. I wrote a post about her inspiring story before, and I love to support her events. Recently, I invited her over my apartment, so she can show me how to make a very easy and delicious salad! It was so much fun shooting with […]

Fanm Djanm Summer Rooftop Party

Three months went by since I launched Fanm Djanm! Three whole months of sleeplessness, excitement, anxiety, passion, and love. It seriously feels like a few years have gone by already. I’m loving everything about it. Each time I get a new customer, I check what part of the country or the world s/he comes from, […]

Floral print matching set

I realized that I have too many matching sets in my closet. The only reason you don’t realize this is because I always wear them separately. I love the idea though! When I was younger, I remember how many matching sets of tops and shorts or skirts my mom used to get me, so I […]

Colors for Sunday brunch

I live colorfully. I love colors in everything that I do. I love colors on my food. And I will even add that my personality is also very colorful. That’s why my headwrap collection makes it so easy for me to get dressed now! Mixing prints is also one of my favorite things to do, […]

Sizzle Showdown at Macy’s- Herald Square

It was sizzling hot! The sun was beaming down at Manhattan at its strongest, and everything was bright and colorful. With giant sunglasses and the Fanm Djanm headwrap du jour, I ran from the C train station on 34th Street and made my way to Herald Square to attend Macy’s Great American Grilling Guru competition […]

Dancing to Belo at South Street Seaport

  Belo stole my heart with his music when I was in college. I’ve probably told the story before, but I’ll tell it again many times. After a night of ridiculous, unnecessary drinking like most students who live on a college campus do, I was cleaning my dorm room’s floor from all the gross sticky, […]

Iced Coffee

I walk almost everywhere. I’m seen all over Harlem and the city, and most of the time I’m rushing somewhere. I grab either a smoothie or an iced coffee to go! One of my favorite spots to do work meetings or (even work) is Double Dutch. So if you ever see me, say hello! Tis […]
