Taste of Home

“Just feel the magic in the air and the power in the breeze. Feel the energy of the plants, the bushes, and the trees. Let yourself be surrounded by nature at its best. Calm yourself, focus, and let magic do the rest.”

Dominican Republic Dreamin’: What I Miss the Most

The Dominican Republic will always hold a special place in my heart. Not only because it was my first country I went on a missions trip to or that I had my amazing first experience in jewelry and visual merchandising at 16 years old or that my uncle’s house is literally like paradise, but it’s the friendships and the people that I’ve had the blessing of getting to know. Many of which I still stay in contact with today. I never expected to meet such wonderful people; I just thought I would be in-and-out of a country my relatives had a connection with.

In Fashion I Trust: Seyi Famuyiwa

A few months ago, fellow fashion blogger Tarah-Lynn from “Adorned in Armor” referred me to about three other bloggers, one of them being today’s guest feature. I reached out to her on Instagram, asked if she was down to get together and grab coffee, and we eventually met in Urth Caffé in LA’s Art District! Which, btw, is probably the coolest coffee spot I’ve been to in Cali so far. Two and a half hours later, our conversations included fashion (obviously), the industry in CA, the vision of both of our blogs, and our background and relationship as Christ followers. Plus, I got to shoot her super cool-and-chic outfit! Needless to say it was an awesome time! Now, you can “meet” her, too!
