Forever 21 Floppy Hat & bag// Zara blouse, shorts & heels // Aldo Sunnies

My first couple of days in Ghana were quite warm. But considering it is rainy season at the moment, those warm moments were quickly replaced by cool breezes and mild weather. Either way I didn’t complain. I’m sure you’ve seen all of these pieces in prior posts. I’m all about maximizing my wardrobe by mixing pieces together!

New Look (UK) Romper // Christian Louboutin Shoes // Tory Burch Tote // Ray Ban Wayfarer Sunnies // MAC Ruby Woo

Found this romper on sale in New Look while I was in London. Love the black and white print pattern but I was really drawn to the collar. I have a strong affinity for anything with collars. So it was only right that I snagged this up. Decided to pair it with metallic colored heels and a black tote to complete the look.

Enjoy the week ahead! I have so many posts and videos to share and promise to do so after I get settled back at work and school!

Warby Parker Beacon Collection is Here!!

IMG_3210-2_USE-ME Warby Parker’s limited edition Beacon Collection, which launched TODAY, is the perfect blend between affordable style and fashionable purpose! IMG_2074-2 IMG_2885-6 IMG_3547-3

What I love about Warby Parker, besides their affordable pricing and stellar designs, is the great length of detailing that goes into each pair of glasses. Warby Parker provides length and width information for each pair, so that you can determine which frame fits your face! And if that isn’t enough, for every pair you buy, WP gives a frame to someone in need! That was the only reason I needed to agree to promote the Beacon Collection. Talk about paying it forward!

My favorite pair from the Beacon Collection is the Ingram! Can’t wait to get mine!! Shop Warby Parker NOW!!!

Coming To America

IMG_3692

This pic was taken Day 1 in Ghana. Before I was able to take it all in, I couldn’t help but wonder why I still lived in America. The closest comparison to how I live in NYC vs. how I live in Ghana can easily be depicted in the movie “Coming to America” starring Eddie Murphy.

Forever 21 Hat and Sandals // River Island Dress // Aldo Sunnies // Primark Clutch // H&M Earrings

When I was in London two weeks ago, I bought this amazing dress from River Island’s sale. (Vacation Haul coming soon) I knew it would work perfectly in Ghana. Although I arrived to Ghana at 5am, while it was still dark, by the time I was cleared by customs, immigration, etc. I was welcomed by the sun & humidity! The best part about vacationing back home is living care free in George’s big ol’ home. It’s really annoying how big it is. Like seriously, why do I need 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms? Why do I need all this yard space? Why do I need a mango, coconut, and orange tree! Totally kidding. I always feel like Annie in Daddy Warbucks’ mansion.

My time in Ghana is coming to an end. I’ll be honest, I miss New York. Actually just free wifi and my godson Amir.

Last week I spent two days in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region in Ghana, to visit family. We’re just ending the rainy season in Ghana so the weather is really cool and breezy.

Besides catching up with family members, one of my favorite things to do in Kumasi is to go to the market. The last picture is a shot of George (my mother) in Kejetia Market. We picked up some groceries as well as some small souvenirs for family and friends. Markets in Ghana (and other developing countries) are very different from those in the America. In Kejetia, you can find anything from baby wipes to black market currency exchanges. It is really a one stop shop; think flea-market style Walmart on steroids.

I’ll most likely add more pictures to this post when I return to the states. In the meantime, enjoy!
