Feeling grateful in Sedona Arizona

Mwen se yon ti zwazo Kap cheche soley Ak limye  Pou’m danse ak tout fle Mwen se yon ti zwazo Kap fe lago Ak Koule Pou’m chante ak tout Lot ti zwazo Translation: I’m a little bird; in search of the sun; and light; So I can dance with all flowers; I’m a little bird […] Read more…

Our stay at Emerson Spice in Zanzibar

Reading sappy romance novels at a very young age in Haiti is definitely the cause of my intoxicated desire to watch or come up with crazy love stories on my own. I lived on a cloud during my childhood and early teenage years. In my daydreams, I went to many places in the world. I was […] Read more…

Lost in Zanzibar (Pt. 1)

The fiance and I finished our very first African adventure together in Zanzibar. We left the Selous Reseve in a small plane with six other passengers on a beautiful sunny afternoon. By this time, I was already used to riding in a small plane. Our trip to the reserve from Dar es Salaam was one the […] Read more…

Puerto Rico Lookbook

A stroll through Old San Juan in a sheer white dress and leopard print headwrap reminded me of how beautiful it is to be a woman. I was no longer “Paola, the dreamer”. I was “Lola, the conquerer”. Yes, I have a few alter egos. They set the mood. They take me places. That day, […] Read more…

I shared a guest house with models from Jamaica, California, and around the world. I mingled with international movie stars and fashion designers. I went on […] Read more…

Barefoot in Austin

Since I’ve started my entrepreneurial journey, I noticed that I need more breaks from New York City. There’s so much pressure in every way possible, and the more work I do, it seems like more is required to keep it afloat. Don’t worry, I’m not really complaining because I absolutely love what I do.  I […] Read more…

Trini Vibes

Trinidad is absolutely beautiful. The past two days on the island have made me feel like I’m right at home. Within my first hour in Port of Spain, I went to get a haircut at a random barber shop I found just a few minutes from the apartment I rented for the week. The cut was […] Read more…

The Bermuda Way

I was in Puerto Rico when I received the message. Bermuda Fashion Festival was happening, and I was invited to participate as a model and explore the beautiful island and all it had to offer. I’d never been, and it wasn’t on current travel bucket list, but I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve always heard […] Read more…

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. […] Read more…
