Spring is here! And so is Victoria Beckham’s collaboration with Target!

March 21, 2017

I have admired Victoria Beckham’s style (see this post, and this one )for a while now and this collaboration with Target has me extremely excited that there is a possibility (refresh button be damned) that I could actually own one of her designs! GAHHH!!

Pajama party time!!

March 02, 2017

Can you believe it’s March already!? This was the BEST February I’ve had since I moved to Canada sixteen years ago (yikes!) because unlike the past years I was able to spend my Birthday outdoors! Yay me!

But I’m gearing up to hibernate for March because a) I have work to catch up on and b)Underground returns!! And to do that, I need me a good comfy pair of pajamas!

Queen Viola Davis

(Me:*singing * “all I do is win, win, win no matter what!”)

Let me tell you that when her name was called, the tears overfloweth. I was legit bawling. I haven’t even seen Fences yet but just knowing how hard this woman works, how she embodies her characters and her passion for storytelling is enough for me to say give her the damn Oscar!

Black History Month (Canadian Edition) is here!

February 01, 2017

February spells two things: my birthday (woohooo!!) and Black History Month! (Power To The People!)

A number of years ago (when I was trying my hand at being a journalist), a few friends and I put together a documentary on African-Canadian history for a conference. It was a fun project and not having grown up in Canada, I learned so much about the contributions of African Canadians to this society.

My girl, Taraji P. Henson who stole the show with this Reem Acra gown. Whew. Breathtaking.

I finally went to see Hidden Figures this past weekend and it was just so fitting that this movie came out on top at the SAGs. It deserves all the accolades it is getting. Those women’s names deserve to be known and this story is way past due.
