Just a Hoodie and Jeans

Growing up, Muhammad Ali was my biggest role model. Every year, we had to write a paper on one historical figure, and every year I would write it on Muhammad Ali. It’s crazy, every time I researched him I would learn something new and be even more enamored by him. So, needless to say, when I saw that Roots of Fight had a Cassius Clay hoodie (a really really nice Cassius Clay hoodie), I scooped it up immediately. With the...

Warm Tones & Warm Weather

Hello Hello! Lately, I’ve been feeling the HEAT and I mean that figuratively and literally. Wearing warm tones in the summer is such a taboo! But, I’ve been digging the rusty, bronze tones in this warm weather. Honestly, my love for warm tones started when I receive my NAKED HEAT palette from Urban Decay. I am absolutely obsessed with the shades “sauced”, “low blow” and “cayenne”. So, today I am going to share an outfit inspired by my new palette!...

Korean BBQ

Beard & Brunch – Korean Village Restaurant Toronto

This installment of Beard & Brunch is a little misleading given it’s about dinner, but bear with us. Maryam is an absolute fanatic for Korean BBQ, so when we went to Toronto recently, we had to find the best Korean BBQ. After lots of research and asking some of our instafamily, we decided on Korean Village Restaurant. It’s a decent sized restaurant, started by a Korean woman quite some time back (we got to meet her). It’s now managed by...

Summertime Fine with Florals

Hello Beauties, Floral and Tropical prints are trending right now. They’re a perfect way of adding some flair to a simple outfit. I’d highly suggest investing in pieces that are simple and incorporate some of these prints. This way you have transitional pieces to go from one season to another. Prints on denim jackets is a HUGE trend this season. You can honestly buy floral patches online and iron/sow them on to your old denim jeans or jackets to spice...

HASK – For Dry & Frizzy Hair

Hello Beauties, This post is for my babes who struggle with frizzy and dry hair. As many of you know, I recently went lighter again. This time it wasn’t a drastic change. I just added some highlights to give my hair some color for the summer. I think highlights look amazing in the summer with some sun kissed tan. As we all know, with warmer weather comes dry and frizzy hair. So, stay tuned as I share my review on...

For Working Women: A Tote You Must Have

Calling all Girl bosses, blogger babes, working women, and badass moms! I know how difficult it is to find a bag that fits everything you need. Before I moved to the city, I hated bags. Well, I really didn’t have a use for them. Now that I am working as a full-time social media content creator and marketing consultant, I am always walking around the city with 99 things in my bag. You’d think I am exaggerating, but I am...

Brunch

Beard & Brunch – ChalkPoint Kitchen NYC

Welcome to the 2nd installment of our Beard & Brunch series. This time, Maryam and I had the opportunity to collaborate with Chalk Point Kitchen in NYC to sample their brand new Spring 2017 menu. Chalk Point is an awesome restaurant with a farm-to-table approach, with a changing menu based on seasonally available foods, sourced locally. When Maryam first spoke to the restaurant, she thought it would be hard to convince me to want to go, but not at all....

Hair Care Routine Update: Fullness for Days

Hi! Ever since I moved up to New York, my hair isn’t quite as cooperative as it used to be in Atlanta. Maybe its the water or the harsh weather…who knows! It’s not like my hair was getting unhealthy, but I didn’t have the same fullness or volume in my hair. My curls were hardly making it through the day! Even the tight wand curls would fall out within hours. All of that changed when I discovered this new shampoo...
