S A Y A – HAIRPINS THAT ARE SAVING THE RAINFOREST

The rainforest; a tropical treasure trove, breathtaking in its lush green majesty and one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet. This magical world is disappearing right before our eyes. As illegal logging becomes more prevalent in  places such as Indonesia, the rainforests there are literally being stripped null. Places that were once inhabited by so many of the world’s most beautiful creatures . . .

THE ULTIMATE VEGAN “EVERYTHING BAG”

Meet, my beloved new Eba tote. She’s amazing. Aside from her undeniable functionality and perfectly simple style, the ethics behind her creation make her a perfect match for someone that is vegan and/or eco-concious. Complete with two large compartments, a big interior pocket, and a center zipper pocket for smaller, more valuable items, she’s the ultimate vegan handbag for any multifaceted gal (or guy) on-the-go!

TRUELIFE: I’M ADDICTED TO GLITTER

Greetings earthlings! This post is all about one of my favorite things in life, GLITTER. I know, it sounds vapid and so dumb that you probably just questioned the purpose of my existence. Well, I was a pretty big tom-boy growing up but I still can’t recall a time that I denied my love for glitter. I think it goes a little deeper than the happy happy joy joy Ren and Stimpy dance I want to do every time I see it. I think it has more to do with my love for LIGHT and the way that glitter reflects light so well in every direction. It just never ceases to amaze me.

If you love glitter as much as I do . . .if that’s even possible. . .here is a tour of some of my most used glitter accessories. All of the items are made with multi colored glitter, or as I like to call it, PARTY GLITTER. I adore all shades, but this rainbow combination is hard to beat. Now Let’s Party . . .

FANCY PANTS – PART 3: FLORAL STATE

Last, but NOT my least favorite of the fancy pants I’m sporting this Winter, are my 1970’s wide-leg, pleated, floral pantalones! I’ve AAAAAALWAYS loved baggy pants. Since I was a little Aaliya inspired tomboy, I can remember feeling my…. dopest…. in JNCO jeans or big baggy sweat pants (thank you shout out to my sister Ami for supplying those sick threads!). Ladies of the hip-hop community, can I get an Amen?  Alright, so, these pants aren’t very tomboy-esque, but they ARE incredibly wide legged and I can’t picture anything more comfortable, except for maybe my birthday suit. . .

These nearly neon parachute pants stay secured with an elastic waist line and matching tie belt. For this first outfit I pictured more of a day time look for weather that is tolerable. I paired these floral babies with a plain cream tank top, vegan leather sandals, and an emerald green scarf that I’ve been living in lately. Exhibit A . . .

FANCY PANTS – PART 1: SEAFOAM DREAM

At this time of year, when it’s chilly outside and the wind. . .exists (I live in Florida) . . . it’s easy to put your creative side in a box along with all your colorful summer clothing and settle for jeans day by day. I’ve been guilty of hiding my prickly legs and un-pedicured toes with the SAME jeans for a week straight during cold months. This year, I’m committed to keepin it cool with the weather.
