So lucky to meet another one of my fave fashion bloggers Christina Caradona of TropRogue! She was gracias enough to stop and chat for a bit. She was super cool and funny.
I was also lucky enough to meet the undeniably gorgeous Boris Kodjoe….talk about star struck! Nicole is one lucky lady.
It felt only right to try out the infamous shake shack, but I have to say….it was good but there are much better burger joints in SF. I’m somewhat of a burger snob, what can I say.
My coffee shake was bomb dot com though!
Our NY luck continued to pull through to the very last minute we were in NY and got us into a show! My bestie and I were able to watch some of the looks from the Academy of Art come down the runway.
The Lincoln Center really does look beautiful at night.
Goodbye NY, until next time.
These were taken on the first day of fashion week. I was fortunate enough to get a sewing machine for my birthday (thanks parents!) so I really wanted to push myself to learn how to make something for fashion week. The finished product is this ankara skirt I am wearing.

I was so excited to meet one of my absolute favorite fashion bloggers Kristina Bazan of KAYTURE! She was super nice and sweet and even stopped to snap a photo with me!
As a rookie blogger, I love going to fashion week simply for the experience. While getting invited into shows is ultimately the goal, just being in the presence of so many different styles, trends, and down right craziness gives me life! It makes my heart skip a beat. It makes me swoon.
But…..As our NY luck would have it, we were able to make it into the Lincoln Center, which was a treat in and of itself.
After having some fun in the Lincoln Center, we left and took the subway over to Harlem to visit little Africa and look for some African fabric.
A gorgeous Harlem sunset
After shopping we headed back to soho to meet up with my cousin for dinner, drinks, & dessert. Much needed after being out allllllll day.
Some dope street art
A cute little poster in the restaurant.
All in all, it was a
good awesome day!
P.S. I got a lot of questions about my lipstick color, so I thought I’d let you guys know what I was wearing. I used MAC’s Magenta lip liner as a lipstick and lightly went over it with MAC Rebel lipstick.
Took these photos during my vacation in Miami. I think it’s safe to say the “no white after labor day” rule has officially been abolished. Especially when you live in a place where the sun is still shinin.
The one day we found time to have an all out beach day, I left my bikini in the hotel! So in true YOLO fashion, I did all water activities in my dress…true definition of a vacation.
This was definitely one of the highlights of my trip (in case you couldn’t tell)! I love thrills!!
We were so busy that I didn’t do a fantastic job of taking photos of our night fits but heres some pics I took on my phone.
I loveed the deep neckline of this dress.
These shots were taken on my first day on my vacation in Miami.
As much as I hate idle time and I like to go-go-go, there’s somethin about the beach that is therapeutic and makes me wanna chill out for a sec…a hot sec, but a sec nonetheless.
Miami, with its humidity, beaches, and all was the perfect place to begin my vacation.
