DETROIT INSPIRED, PART II: THE HOUSE

I returned home from Detroit last week, after sharing a beautiful visit with my friend, shimmering with inspiration from two very basic-sounding, but nonetheless, deeply profound entities—FOOD and THE HOUSE. I understand that when most people travel to visit a new place for the first time, the place itself, the geographic location, the town, is… Continue reading DETROIT INSPIRED, PART II: THE HOUSE

BEAUTIFUL FACE, PART II: THE DEW FACTOR

I don’t claim to have perfect skin. There are some women I know who have skin that is literally flawless, like refined alabaster. And unfortunately, I think a lot of it comes down to genetics.

And it wasn’t because I wanted to cover up my grays. I actually didn’t know I had any grays… Continue reading DON’T DENY YOUR GRAYS

SMOOTH SKIN FOR THE EVERYDAY GODDESS

Recently, I’ve had multiple people remark on the silky-smooth texture of my skin, specifically my arms. I promise you, I put very little effort into making my skin smooth and actually don’t really think much about it. But I do agree, my skin does feel pretty smooth to the touch, so it got me thinking.… Continue reading SMOOTH SKIN FOR THE EVERYDAY GODDESS
