The Skirt That Divided The Masses

The Skirt That Divided The Masses

I recently purchased a tribal print skirt from zara. I bought it because it was comfortable and mostly because it had a unique style. It also did not hurt that it was on sale. As much as I loved the skirt, I was surprised to find that my husband thought it looked like a “table cloth”. Somehow, that made me like…

Meeting Strangers at the Top of the Rock

Meeting Strangers at the Top of the Rock

About a month ago, I received two separate, but almost identical, messages that read something like “ I’m coming to New York , lets meet! ” The messages were from two travel bloggers Jessica and Sydney that I had connected with on Instagram. Yes, I know what you are thinking, your parents probably also told you never to talk to strangers.…

Why I Recommend Personal Shopping

Why I Recommend Personal Shopping

I discovered personal shopping at TopShop quite by accident. I had walked into the store in Soho’s shopping district with one thing in mind -I wanted a pair of jeans. About 30 minutes later, I found myself stumbling across the store with a pile of clothing trying to find a fitting room to try them on. A store attend came over…

6 Habits I Adopted For a Healthier Work-Life Balance

Today started innocently enough. I woke up with high expectations: I planned to have a productive day after which I planned to run errands, cook and meet a friend. Then 5 PM came and not only had my to-do list grown, but none of my errands were done. I was late to meet my friend and I had neither cooked…

My Experience With A Custom Suit Shop In Thailand

My Experience With A Custom Suit Shop In Thailand

[line][line] If you follow me on Instagram you probably already know that I was in Thailand last month. We only had 32 hours in Bangkok. So to maximize our time, we did not venture outside of the city limits (Goodbye floating market). We were making our way to one of the many temples in Bangkok, when a stranger at the ferry terminal suggested that we…

Never a Wrong Time to Wear a Polka Dot Dress

Never a Wrong Time to Wear a Polka Dot Dress

I have never met a polka dot dress that I didn’t like.  I love this particular midi length polka dot dress because it is made from jersey fabric which means that it stretches and hugs you in all the right places! I originally didn’t plan to post about it but it comes in two colors and happens to be on…

5 Things to Remember When you are Feeling Insecure

When I was little I would worry about my grades, my future, and my potential to make something out of myself. In college, I had a new set of worries: What did I want to do with my life? Was I growing up to be a woman I could be proud of? And then I got accepted into graduate school.…

Living in my ripped white jeans

Living in my ripped white jeans

If you live in the United States, then you have probably heard about the “no white before Memorial day rule”. To be honest, I had never heard of this rule prior to moving to the States. Its always hot in Ghana so wearing white is never a bad idea. Rule or not, I feel like rules are meant to be broken so…

Versatile outfit for the busy woman

Versatile outfit for the busy woman

Culottes have never been a wardrobe staple for me. I somehow made up my mind that they would not look good on me without ever having tried on a pair. With my tall and only slightly curvy frame at 5’11”, I felt like I would erase any figure I had by donning a pair. When I saw this  Vince Camuto pair…

Seeing as human emissions are accelerating the end of the world and all, it’s not surprising that bike commuting has gained popularity. One of the things I like to do on warm weather weekends is to ride a bicycle in a park. It is a 2-in-1 activity in which I get to enjoy the sights and exercise (Lord knows I…
