Statement Skirts

- Fashion

Look ma, no pants!  Statement skirts are everything right now and while this is actually a skort, it still made a statement.   Rocking a mini skirt in the winter is bold because, well, because it’s winter.  I love pairing them with sheer black tights and flat ankle booties.  The tights do little to keep your legs warm but at least you have the flat booties so you can move quickly back into the heat, if I’m being honest.  This skirt…

Rent The Runway

- Collaborators, Fashion

Ladies, we’ve all been there. The stressful “I have nothing to wear” stage of fury when trying to plan an outfit for a big event. My room can be completely spotless until I flip through my wardrobe and can’t find the perfect piece for whatever event is coming up. In an instant, tops are tossed and shoes cover the floor like you just walked into “the land of misfit looks”. Rent The Runway saves you from the stress of searching your…

New York, New York – Family Style

- Lifestyle

We love New York.  Both of our parents are born and raised New Yorkers and we still have most of our family up there.  One of my favorite times of year to go up there is during the holidays.  The light displays and store windows are nothing short of amazing.  This year we went up there the week after Christmas with our family and had SO much fun.   My Dad grew up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.…

Utopia Found at Sassoon Salon

- Beauty, Collaborators

Hair is funny isn’t it?  We’re all a little more obsessed with it than we probably care to admit.  We cut it, dye it, shave it, straighten it, curl it and everything in-between.  Sometimes bad hair can set the mood for your whole day!  So we set out looking for hair utopia and found it with Sassoon Salon and their new collection, aptly called “Utopia”! u·to·pi·a yo͞oˈtōpēə/ (noun) an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect.  …

My Dubai Diaries- Photo tour of my travel

- Lifestyle

This would be our first time being reunited in several months, and with long distance, you look forward to this moment more than anything. My other half, Karim, is now living in Dubai (UAE), and I’m still a D.C. gal. We share a birthday a day apart and we knew we didn’t want to miss spending it together, so it was set… I was going to DUBAI! Even though this was a very personal trip for the both of us,…

Accessorize for Winter from Head to Toe

- Fashion

Let’s be real, the cold sucks. I mean, who doesn’t prefer red lips to red noses?  But if we’re looking at the cocoa mug half full, the cold is perfect for layering.  That goes for accessories too!  Not like layering 3 hats on top of each other, but making sure when you accessorize, your conscious of the season.   I kept my love for floppy hats winter-ready with this one by BCBG.  The brim is wider than average and it’s leather…

My Take on the Mini-Backpack Trend

- Fashion

I went through my four years of high school with probably as boring of a backpack as it gets, the typical black Jansport backpack. After graduating and starting college, the love story between my Jansport and I slowly faded. I found there were so many chic and easy alternatives to a backpack not only for school purposes, but that could be used as a fashion statement too. Since I was still adamant about sticking to my favorite color, (black, duh),…
