OOTD: BDAY || 23 Earthstrong

23 years ago…August 18th at 7:04pm…a young G was born into the world.

A young Goddess that is…

And in this lovely season of the Leo, I celebrate my birth and another year dwelling in this beautiful Earthly realm.

I am entirely GRATEFUL.

Grateful to have family & friends that genuinely care about me.

Grateful to be living my life in the city I have always dreamed.

Grateful for vision, creativity, and inspiration.

Grateful for all the love in my life.

I am as passionate & inspired as ever to fulfill my God-given destiny in the Earth, and live my dreams in the process.

And as I turn 2-3

{2+3 = 5}

I thank the Almighty Creator for all the grace upon my life and this year shall be a year of success, freedom, joy, & loving light! I declare it!


Had a lot of birthday fun! Triiin gave me the royal treatment. From delicious breakfast in bed, home spa treatments, an impromptu BDAY photoshoot, a beautiful homemade cake of perfection, plenty of blunts, wine, & tango lessons! Not to mention a delicious gourmet dinner and awesome gifts. I truly felt like a Leo lioness Queen.

My family sent their beautiful birthday wishes such a manner that there was no way that I could not feel the love. They also sent me a b-day package that arrived perfectly on today, but my apartment manager left her office early, so I couldn’t get it 😦 . However I’m still happy about the package and so excited to see whats inside! My mom always sends something right on time that’s just what I want/need. Some intuition on that woman… not to mention our connection 🙂 . (P.S. since first starting this post I have seen whats in the package! &it was right-on-time gifts, as usual 🙂 ). It’s my first birthday that we haven’t been able to see each other and I miss ’em! But I know they were all with me in spirit.

IMAGE , my friend & an amazingly dope artist, also played a part in making my birthday special! Not only did he give me the gift of a beautiful piece of art to hang on my wall, he gave me a beautiful handmade necklace to serve as wearable piece of art as well! He also took Triiin & I for a lovely day of drinks, desserts, and good vibes 🙂

OOTD: Dabbling in Aztec

Today was a blazin’ hot day in the southern United States. I spent the majority of it inside filing papers and preparing for final exams (session 1 is almost over, yippeee!!). This is how I faired the weather today..





Gold Hoops: Beauty Supply – $2

Gray Tank: Old Navy – $9

Jean Shirt: Walmart – $10

Belt: Forever 21 – $8.80

Aztec Skirt: Forever 21

Sandals: Don’t remember – $9

The jean shirt was worn in the cold offices and classrooms that i spent much of my time in today. Outdoors, the jean element came straight off, otherwise i’d risk a heat stroke. This outfit is centered around the skirt. A touch of aztec never hurt anyone! &if you glance at this little aztec number, you’ll see I got a little mint in there too…trend bonus!

Until Next Time!

OOTD: Summer Stripes

Hola! Im back with an Outfit of the Day for you guys! Today is Friday 6/8/2012 and it was a pretty hot day, but a little bit breezy at the same time…if that make any sense…weather in the Southern US, boyyy i tell ya. But it was just a typical day of work and summer school for me so I went for a very simple, relaxed look. Hope you guys like !

 Like I said, just a chill outfit for a chill day. Nothing too special. My fave part about this outfit is the shirt. I love the nautical vibe of the stripes and the split up the back of the shirt.
