Yara Shahidi Launches 7th Sun Productions with Keri Shahidi

As if we weren’t already impressed by Yara Shahidi‘s accomplishments, she now has her own production company with her mother Keri Shahidi. The icing on the cake is that they will be partnering with ABC Studios to create scripted and unscripted projects. Yara Shahidi has always been vocal about the injustice that black and brown people unfortunately face on a regular basis and in her recent Elle Magazine feature, she spoke on passing the baton. This is truly a huge way to pay it forward and contribute to the community.…

20 Things I No Longer Buy

Reevalution is always necessary in life so here are 20 things I no longer buy. I just realized that its usually minimalists that create posts like this. I am far from being a minimalist. I love having a vast variety of things. I also enjoy being a woman with strong will as it makes it easy for me to stop doing anything that I decide to cut out of my life. Before checking out the items I no longer buy, support the organizations fighting inequality by checking out this national…

Jackie Aina is Launching Forvr Mood

Jackie Aina created a brand (finally) and it’s called Forvr Mood. I’m super proud of Jackie and all that she’s accomplished thus far. From her incredibly successful youtube channel to her Artist Couture Collab and Anastasia Beverly Hills collab and now her own brand! I feel like a proud sister! I’ve watched Jackie Aina on YouTube since my early college years when she slayed her face while still being in the military. Its so refreshing to see how far she’s come. We don’t know what Forvr Mood will entail as…

Are We Back To Brunching? – Pink Summer Dress

To brunch or not to brunch while still keeping safe in quarantine is quite a decision. I think its still important to quarantine and deciding whether you should pertake in brunch is highly dependent on your location. In some cities, its perfectly fine to brunch (as long as you have your mask on of course), while other cities are experiencing a tighter shutdown with increasing numbers of those testing positive for the virus. I’m choosing to brunch but only with those who have been in quarantine. Its only right that…

Stepping Out in Yellow High Waist Wide Culottes

I stepped out in these yellow high waist wide culottes! I finally stepped out (for real for real) for the first time after being in quarantine since mid-march. I’m not open to going out as much as I used to but its definitely refreshing to see people I love after not seeing most of my loved ones for so long. I’ve been loving wearing yellow a lot lately and this look is no exception. Its always been important for me to keep it bright regardless of how I feel. If…

Bantu Knots Slay – My Natural Hair Story

I wore bantu knots while transitioning from relaxed to natural hair 10 years ago. My last relaxer was December 2009. It was my first semester in college and I decided that I no longer wanted to relax my hair. Having natural hair wasn’t popular back then and I actually received a lot of rebuttal for my decision. I remember someone from a church that I used to attend asking me what I plan on doing with my hair if it’s not going to be relaxed! As if there was no…

Best Dressed BET Awards 2020

BET had their first virtual award show! In 2020, companies are finding innovative ways to keep the culture going. For some reason, I wasn’t expecting much style from the performers and presenters since most were working from home. Amanda Seales was the hostess with the mostest as she wore 13 looks, Lizzo gave me just what I needed with her ruffled attire and Jennifer Hudson looked like she’s fresh off a red carpet! Take a peek at the video below to hear me chat about the BET Awards style recap.…

Sharon Cutler Demands That Brands Pull Up or Shut Up

Pull Up For Change has become my favorite Instagram account! Black people are fed up with companies claiming that they support black people in the stand against inequality, yet they do not have any black staff. The companies that do have black staff are mostly in entry-level positions, making them more susceptible to losing their jobs during a crisis such as this current pandemic. Created by Sharon Chuter, Pull Up For Change demands that brands provide the demographics of their staff which includes the breakdown of the number of people…
