I was lucky enoughto visit this beautiful country with my boyfriend to meet his extended family. 
I feel in love with the city of Medellin, where he is from.
I truly only have nice things to say about my trip, everything from the nature, the city, the people, the food and way of living was fantastic and I can not wait to go again!

I hope you enjoyed my outfit diary of my trip and I hope to share with you a personalized tour for the city of Medellin.

Another year, another holiday gift guide!
Whether you are shopping for yourself (yaass treat yo'self!) a girlfriend or family member I hope this little gift guide will find you well.
All these items have been tested throughout the year and I just LOVE them!

Sometimes it's hard picking out the perfect gift for the people you love, so here's a tip... what I find to be a bit more special is buying a couple of smaller gifts that remind you of that person and bunch them up instead of buying just one expensive gift. Like how about a perfume and a spa kit for the friend who is always down for a girls night in?! You're Welcome!

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season!

This week I put up my Christmas tree and nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit! Check it out on my Instagram.
This year I put it up a little earlier than I usually do. When do you guys think is the right time to put it up?

Do you guys have any plans for Christmas, Ramadan, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice!?
I will be in Montreal, Canada with my family and boyfriend for Christmas and I couldn't be more excited!
Any recommendations of places to visit, eat and shop?

So I'm guessing everyone has already binge watched Stranger Things?
If you haven't yet... what are you doing? Go! Watch it all! *after your done reading this blog post of course ;) 

Anyways, after finishing the second season I was really inspired by all the 80's fashion I saw on the show and when I went to Forever 21 last weekend I naturally gravitated to these vintage inspired pieces. I feel like this is a outfit that the character Nancy would wear. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments below!

This past weekend I went to Miami for the iii Points Music Festival and I had the greatest time ever! It's been a long time since I've done a big music festival for three days but this one in Miami was extra special. I got to spend it with some of the best people including my boyfriend, his family and a bunch of our friends. 

The music was amazing through out the weekend, we got to see the Gorillaz, Bonobo, the XX, and Mark Ronson to name a few favorites!

While I was packing for Miami I wanted to pack comfortable yet festival appropriate looks. Since the festival was mostly during the evening I knew I wouldn't be able to properly photograph the outfits so my boyfriend and I wandered throughout South Beach (where we staying) during the day to shoot, hang around and explore.
