Nairobi Purple

Nairobi Purple

1 min read

I love the color purple. They say it's the color of royalty and with good reason. It's rich but not in your face bright bright, understated enough to be sophisticated. I love how the Nairobi Purple Necklace and Earrings look with the jeans. It's a great way of making a casual outfit look more polished.

I know I'm not alone when I tell you that I sometimes get frustrated with the things we have to put up with to get dressed everyday. I know, I know, these are first world problems, but since I currently live in the first world then I guess I'm entitled to vent right?

Nairobi Multi-color

Some might say that this outfit is over the top but for me it's the perfect expression of how I feel, exuberant. I used to be one of those people that was deathly afraid of color with a wardrobe strictly limited to varying drab shades of black, grey and brown-lots and lots of brown.

Ankara Print and Lapis Lazuli

Ankara Print and Lapis Lazuli

1 min read

Growing up, I always used to associate Ankara print fabric with old people because that's who I would see wearing it. It wasn't until I came to US for college that I realized what I had been missing. The vibrant colors and bold designs are the perfect representation of everything that I love about Africa plus they match my style sensibility. I paired the jacket with with the Kabul Lapis Lazuli Necklace and some J.Crew skinnies.

There was a show called 'Lipstick Jungle' that ran for two seasons in 2008-2009, about three high powered women in NY that I was obsessed with. The women were the embodiment of everything I wanted to be at the time; they had great friendships, at the top of their game in their careers and had lust worthy wardrobes to match. The power and

Mombasa in Shorts

Mombasa in Shorts

Can we talk aboutthe amazing color of this short suit? It's a soft lilac, great for the spring and summer and a perfect match with theMombasa Necklace. I actually think this short suit is appropriate for the office as long as you're not in a conservative industry like law or banking. I paired this suit with a sheer white tee that I half tucked in the front and and a pair of open toe strappy sandals in a nude color.

10 Tips To Keep Your Jewelry Looking Like New

It's happened to all of us. You see a fabulous piece of jewelry that you must have so you buy it. You love it so much that you wear it every day until one day you realize that it doesn't have the same sparkle that it had when you first bought it. You despair because can't bear the thought of looking like a hobo every time you wear you favorite bauble.

Falling pansies pants

How could you not fall in love with a pair of pants named 'Falling Pansies'? While the print is a little bit more delicate than I would normally be attracted to, there was something about the contrast of the print against the background color that made these that made these pants edgy enough for me.

You say wide leg pants, I say palazzo pants but hey we're still talking about the same thing right? I love these pants for those balmy summer days when you need something breathable but still want to look great. They also work for those days when you're feeling bloated or working on those last few pounds that you'd love to lose and who doesn't feel like that sometimes?

When I first saw this hat, I was drawn to it yet terrified of it all at the same time. It reminded me of the hats rice farmers wear in Asia, but yet it was so stylish. Concerned that I couldn't pull it off, I didn't buy it when I first saw it online.

I'm a firm believer that your home should be a reflection of your personality and I tried to do just that with my décor in my Minneapolis apartment. Neutral décor with 'pops of color' seems to bethe current (and safe) trend, but the last thing I want is to end up with a cookie cutter home because quite frankly, that is not who I am. While almost everything else in my apartment came from the home I used to own in Las Vegas, I needed a new couch to fit the much smaller scale of my current living room.

4 Tips for using Artificial Flowers in Home Decor

Fresh or faux flowers? It wasn't too long ago that it was considered a serious faux pas to use anything but fresh flowers but the tide has started to change. One major reason for this is that the quality of artificial flowers has drastically improved over the years. These aren't your grandmother's dusty silk flowers sitting forlornly by the window sill. Instead, these are the faux flowers you'll find at a White House state dinner as arranged by floral designer Livia Cetti, and even the renowned and uber chic Anna Wintour is reportedly a fan of her work.

Storage-Solutions-Hats-Command-Hooks

When I moved to Minneapolis three years ago, I had to get creative with storage solutions. I had accumulated a lot of possessions from when I lived in Las Vegas where I had a three bedroom house which is more than twice the size of my new 900 sf apartment (still pretty large by most standards for a single person). With more than 200 pairs of shoes, countless articles of clothing, several hats and a substantial accessory collection, I needed to make it work as Tim Gunn would say.
