Sometimes You Just Want To Dance

This is one of my favorite pics of me from the summer time.

Sometimes, a girl just wants to dance!

Happy Friday! Enjoy your labor day weekend!

Cooking With The City Girl: Thai Curry

I have a hobby, well, actually I have many. But one of my favorite things to do is take recipes from magazines and paste them in my DIY cookbook (a notebook from 11th grade lol).

I guess since this a hobby of mine, it's no surprise that I like to cook (when I'm in the mood!)

My mom bought this Thai Kitchen Thai Curry noodle but never cooked them. I found it in the cupboard, saw raw shrimp in the freezer, and fresh veggies in the refrigerator. So, I decided to combine the three and try my hand at some Thai curry!

I seasoned the shrimp with some cayenne pepper (if you like spice), soy sauce, seafood seasoning, parsley flakes, and a touch of lemon. Then I pre-chopped my veggies and just followed the instructions on the box. After about 15 minutes, voilĂ ! You have a delicious homemade meal. It was a hit in my house, and those are some picky palate's.

Maybe I should more posts like this, possibly with some Caribbean cuisine. Let me know if you're interested in seeing wore cooking posts!

Lady In Red: MAC "Ruby Woo" Review

I've discovered a new favorite lipstick: MAC's Ruby Woo!

Being a chocolate girl, I sometimes shy away from red lipstick. Red can sometimes appear clownish on a woman of darker skin tones. A lot of the red lipstick that are made are not blue based, which is best for women with my skin tone, but Ruby Woo is!

I'm in love.

*Sidenote: Check out my new braids! I did them myself!

Reminisce Over Love...

Happy Friday all!

I know everyone loves summertime, but there's something about a nice hot cup of cocoa that makes everything better... Maybe it's because I am a winter baby, maybe it's because New York summers are too humid, but I'd rather be cold than hot. At least when you're cold, you can add layers to warm you up and you can cuddle!

So until that winter chill is in the air again, I'll look at this picture to remind me of the cozy times...

Here's the track for my day:

Have a great weekend!

What's your preference- Summer or Winter?

Out & About: Cosmoploitan's Summer Splash Event OOTD

I hardly ever do OOTD's but I figured I should start doing more. After attending the Cosmopolitan Summer Splash event at the Hudson Terrace in NYC last week, I realized that was the perfect time to snap some flicks of my outfit! I'm not great at this but I'll get better *SMILE*

The event was hosted by Cosmopolitan magazine to celebrate the launch of Cosmopolitan Latina. There were free drinks by SkinnyGirl Cocktails, free manicures, free hair color clip-ins, great music, cool goodie bags and awesome people! I was even asked to take a flick so that my eyewear can be featured on a new style blog: Witness Style Blog

What I wore:

  • Skinny Jeans: Torrid
  • Top: Torrid
  • Cardigan: Thrifted
  • Glasses: Customized by me
  • Clutch: Coach
  • Sandals: Danice (Couldn't believe they were $6.99!)
  • Turban: Scarf stolen from mom :-)

July 2012 MyGlam Bag Review

I know it's August but I have a very valid reason for doing my July review so late... 
I have no computer!!! 
*Cue violins* I am truly devastated people...

Any way, this month's MyGlam bag came two weeks ago, and I must say, the MyGlam team has steadily been improving their bags month by month. If you remember my scathing review of my first bag, you can recall how upset I was about spending $10 on that bag. The bag after that was a bit better but there was still room for major improvement. Now, three months later, this bag has been the best yet!
