Slam Dunk for the Ladies – WMNS Dunk Low “Coast”

Dunks have been around for almost a decade and with every new collaboration and iteration, the classic silhouette only gets better. Mark your calendars because February 18 we get three new colorways; “Coast” which is a sky blue and white color block with touches of yellow, “Hyper Cobalt” royal blue with black accents and “Medium Grey (UNLV)” red with grey accents.

The pair that I’m looking to get my hands on are the “Coast.” Why? These beauties are exclusively made in women sizing (sorry boys). Perfect for Spring season coming up, be sure to set your alarms and notifications. Retailing for $100, you can grab on any of these on Nike.com and SNKRS app. May the sneaker gods be on your side.

New YouTube Video LIVE! : Work From Home Lookbook

Today marks the seventh month of me working from home. All I have to say is I LOVE IT! I’m known for always showing cozy and comfy outfits and styles so just because COVID-19 struck that doesn’t mean I can’t give my audience what they love.

I created a look book for my fellow remote workers. 5 different outfits for the 5 days of the week. Comfort over everything is key for me when working from home. Below is the video. If you are not subscribed already, please hit that subscribe button (i’m only 5 away from my 300 goal!!). Stay cozy my friends!

Therapy Session with Flower Bodega

STORY TIME!! Growing up I was always surrounded by flowers and plants because of my mother. She has the most amazing green thumb, it’s kind of sickening sometimes. When I was younger, she would wake me up on the weekend to help her outside in the garden. At the time, I wasn’t the biggest fan but I loved helping her with something she loved. I didn’t think that when I grew up, I would be obsessed with plants and flowers as much as I am now. For me, it has become a form of therapy. The same way music brings me peace, so does being around nature.

I’ve been really going through it these last couple of months. Personal emotions, work issues that lead to anxiety and just life. But luckily, slowly I have found that I can do things that I love for therapy. Some people seek a psychologist to help and cope but right now during COVID, I haven’t been able to take that course of action. Thankfully I found an online workshop with a flower shop called Flower Bodega.

Flower Bodega shipped her participants a bundle of flowers and plants to create a tropical floral arrangement. The bundle included: assorted palm leaves, cymbidium orchid, anthuriums, celosia and protea along with floral shears, a small ceramic vase and clear floral tape. I was super excited. The hour long workshop was full of Salsa music (to put us all in a tropical mood), laughs and Aurea was sure to make everyone feel comfortable while creating our arrangements.

At the end of the workshop, I felt joy, happiness, peace and every other synonym there is for happy. Now I have officially come full circle; I finally feel the love my mother felt when we were in her garden.
