Partying in Harlem is more fun!

Ain’t no party like a Harlem party ‘cuz a Harlem party don’t stop! I kind of cringed writing this, but that’s how I felt that night. Amazing African music, beautiful and fun friends, alcohol (drink responsibly), and dancing all night! I love hanging out with Naila because she’s so free-spirited! She drops it low when […]

Never ending brunch in Harlem

There’s something special about Sunday brunch. Sitting with a group of friends, laughing, talking passionately about world issues, eating and of course, drinking. We had a fantastic brunch yesterday at 5 And Diamond in Harlem. I ordered pancakes with fried chicken and it was divine. The chicken was perfectly crisp on the outside and moist […]

Living colorfully

I’ve decided to live more colorfully. I often appear colorful on the outside, but it doesn’t necessarily mean I’m usually feeling the same way on the inside. There are times, I look the most colorful when I’m feeling the darkest. I realized that incorporating colors in my food and around my apartment lifts my spirit […]

Photo story: Harlem Love

I absolutely love living above 110th Street in New York City. The Harlem life has certainly spoiled me. The different neighborhoods I used to find fascinating in the city are now boring to me. I love to exploring my district, and most of the time, I’m looking up at the beautiful architecture. There are a […]

Saturday night at Lavo

As much as I like to make fun of NYC nightclubs, I always have a good time when I go to Lavo. It also doesn’t hurt when you share a table with pretty snazzy and fun ladies. I went dancing with one of my favorite Haitian sista-from-anotha-motha on Saturday.  The crowd and music are typically […]

Same space, different place

OK, so I rearranged my apartment again. It’s a new year, and I get tired of stuff you know!? I like to go places and take action! And when I can’t literally go places, I move my furniture around and find new purposes for my stuff. You might have seen the various stages before, but […]

A photo story: East Village in the Snow

Cold, wet, featherlike snow droplets invade my privacy Beautiful frosted tree branches and dirty slushy sidewalks Darkness and lightness combine The cars are louder than usual People walk past quietly in a hurry No eye contact, no desire to make a connection Yellow taxi cabs zigzag the streets like old drunken fools A red Chanel […]

Where to eat: Luke’s Lobster

If you’re close to me, you know that my favorite food is lobster. My fiance has to deal with that craziness all the time when he asks me what I want to eat. My response every time is lobster no matter where we are, what time it is, or what we’re doing. It has become […]
