Looking the Part with Limited Time

Celebrating International Women’s Day


Today we celebrate women and all of our social, economic, cultural and political achievements. While we’re busy taking on the world and balancing everything on our plates, one of the first things we nix once our to do list grows too long is time we once dedicated to taking care of ourselves, including our attire. And for that reason, today I’m dishing on how to look the part in a fraction of the time.  Continue reading “Looking the Part with Limited Time”

Feature Friday – Interview with Brandon

Feature Friday

Happy Friday! So… February is coming to an end, but I’m sneaking in one last feature this month. If you’ve been following, you know I’ve been incorporating black history and black history makers into my posts. I’ve loved the way the posts and pics have turned out, and I thought it would be cool to end the month by featuring Brandon Williams, the photographer who has been behind some of my notable pics.

I’m excited to keep the Feature Friday series going, and as mentioned in the last Feature Friday post, this month I’m featuring black history makers. Isaac, today’s feature, definitely fits the bill.

Feature Friday – Interview with Mariah

 


Feature Friday 

“I’ve always loved reading and writing. I was in a short story contest in 3rd grade and I think I got 2nd or 3rd place. Ever since then, I figured I would either read or write for a living.” – Mariah

Feature Fridays are back, and I’m really excited about the features I have lined up this month! In honor of black history month I’m intentionally featuring black history makers in my Feature Friday posts. First up, I have a fellow blogger, lawyer, and advocate. She’s a great writer, and happens to be using her skills to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of black people this month (in this country and abroad) through a collection of poems.

One of my favorite things about the weekend is kicking back and relaxing, and often times my weekend wear reflects just that.  So for this look, as relaxed as my mood was, I reached for my Air Jordan 1 Retro High Tops; sorry still not sorry tee; and distressed black jeans.

Amelia’s Flower Truck

The Blooms

My insta-blog Scales of Style is still in its infancy, but I’m sure you’ve noticed flowers have made an appearance several times. The reason is because I love, love, love flowers! No, really I do. And for that reason, once I caught wind of Amelia’s Flower Truck, I knew at some point I had to check it out.


So what’s Amelia’s Flower Truck? Continue reading “Amelia’s Flower Truck”
