WORK-APPROPRIATE WAY TO WEAR SWEATPANTS

Last week, a friend of mine picked me up from work. As I got into his car, he said, “You wear sweatpants to work? Lucky you!” And I was like, “yeah. What’s the big deal?” Our clothes can get us all kinds of attention, both good and bad. My non-strategy strategy of dressing like myself while staying within the bounds of acceptable work wear like short and sweatpants gets me asked a lot of questions by my friends. They don’t understand where I get the nerve and my reluctance to… Read More

MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH

This post was to be up on Sunday evening but hiccups kept happening. It almost didn’t make it today but here we are. A little late but well…… I love that a day was set aside to honor and celebrate the women who raised us. Mother’s day couldn’t have fallen on a better day, Sunday!

VIPINGO RIDGE GOLF RESORT

I refreshed and laid on the bed waiting for sleep to carry me away. As I dozed off into slumber, my phone rang and I struggled to pick it amidst sleep. It was such a task to be… Read More

BUSINESS CASUAL

Hey Fam, I’m back. With my shorts again, lol. Told you these pieces are bae. I have been in absentia for two weeks but here I am! You will have to forgive me for my hiatus every now and then because sometimes life happens. Sometimes you just don’t have the will to write, sometimes you just want to sit and do nothing. That was me last two weeks. I was drained and basically empty. *sigh* Anyway, we have to keep on keeping on, don’t we? This look today was a… Read More
