Sweet Escape

There are some days where I wish I could escape from the city life, I dream of having my own mini farm next to the mountains. Far away where it is just you and God. Where the sun rises and kisses every corner of simplicity. Where the moon shines and leaves a trail and nature elevates you into benediction. 

The older I get the more I want to be left alone. The lifestyle in New York City is so stressful it can be a pain in the ass! Then you look at something so beautiful like this photo and wonder what would it be like if I lived in the wilderness on the side of a mountain. How I would probably appreciate the simple things instead of being so shallow, waiting for that next one day sale. I haven't have the opportunity to actually do some real traveling but I am determined to make that my goal and share it with you. I want to live, not in a 4x4 Studio apartment, but in a meadow colorful floral beings. (Sort of like the Color Purple) Where I can run as far as the eye can see... That is my dream in a dream

It's Christmas Time in Hollis Queens

 Happy Holidays to all! I hope everyone received all that they wanted! I surely wish I did, but I am happy that we are not burned to ashes, we get to live at least another year lol...

For Christmas I went home to Hollis Queens to my parents house, my favorite place in the world next to the flea market. My parents haven't celebrated any holiday in about five years so this year they wanted to hold something small and more intimate. And mom had to make sure I was going to spend Christmas with her, dad and my brothers. So, of course, being that I was born and raised in Hollis Queens, that Christmas song by Run DMC always comes to mind. I grabbed my rope chain, Adidas and younger brother so we can parlay about the old days in the hood.

Good thing about coming home is going through your old closet. My style of dress has changed tremendously and it is funny to watch my evolution of style. Though, I am considering buying more men's apparel, I am trying to get myself into more heels and dresses but it's too bitter cold in New York,  so just can not bother! So the other day when I went to Macy's, I was roaming around the men's department to see what I can pick up for my brother and came across this hot sweater from Lil Wayne's brand TrukFit! Now, I will be brutally honest, I do not like TrukFit. It's fine if you like it, it is just not my cup of tea but this sweater I could not resist! This Galaxy print trend I am in love with however the only brand I saw with it thus far is Black Milk Clothing

Merry Christmas to All!

Best,
Sade

Pencil Black

 2 more weeks of school left and I am amazed that I haven't broke down in tears yet! Though school is not officially out of session, it's never too late to ball out crying

I went online the other day to look for a pencil skirt that I can wear casually and formally. This black high waist pencil skirt I bought from Miss Selfridge is amazing! I am in love with this new trend! It's comfortable (except if your a speed walker), it's skin tight (My kind of piece) to frame your body, and it goes with anything! I love pieces I can wear all the time; the knowing of just throwing something on real quick and still look like fashionably hot! What's also great about my skirt is that it comes in several other colors! So you don't have to be boring like me and stick to black

Golden Doors

 Something so enigmatic about doors
Questions such as...
Who designed it? What's behind it? Who/What inspired it?
How long has it been here? and Are there hidden messages?

Any Last Words?

Happy December! Or maybe not so happy. So apparently the world is suppose to end in 20 days (December 21st). So whatever there is you wanted to do, ya best to doing it NOW! Whether it's finally reading a book, or actually asking that hot guy out, you better make it worth your wild! My boyfriend and me have been so fascinated with the Mayans and their calendar. Watching Youtube documentaries of course feed that addiction. However I am unsure what will happen, though mother earth has been very upset with all of the floods, storms, earthquakes, tsunami's, volcano eruptions ... ok I know I sound crazy but I feel nature has a way of resetting life and we are not the only civilization who lived on this earth. I would hope that nothing happens of course but the world is so corrupt from wars, poverty to education. I know life can't always be pie in the sky for everyone but I really hope it was. It even saddens me when I see a homeless person on the streets and I live in New York! Home for the homeless! I just want the best for everyone no matter who you are, where you are from, or what you look like. Beauty lives in all.
