Travel Safety and Style: Travelon

Travel Safety

It is probably safe to say that I worry about safety. In fact, it may be safer to say that I can be down right, paranoid — about safety that is. Maybe it was ingrained in me when I was kid who was perpetually in unfamiliar surroundings because we travelled so often. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I was mugged once. Not the, “hey, that guy stole my wallet” kind of mugged, but the gruesome, bloody,...

Mohops: The Perfect Shoe — Dancing In My Head

Mohop high thong

Whenever I pack for a trip, I find myself in a dilemma over which shoes to take with me. Pumps? Flats? Comfy wedges? I need versatility but I don’t want to be stuck with only neutral black and brown shoes to go with all my outfits. I’ve always thought “wouldn’t it be great if there was one pair of shoes that I could wear in a bunch of different ways with loads of different outfits? I fancy myself an inventor/designer of sorts, so for years, I...

Like an elephant ride to India: my day shopping at World Market

It has been a while, so I was excited to get out to one of most favorite places to shop, World Market. Whenever I am there, I always find a gazillion things that I love… no, literally, a gazillion things. It did not hurt that it was buy one get one FREE coffee day. Seriously,  I would walk a mile in tight stilettos for their Sumatra and Costa Rican blends. While I was there, I decided to shop around to see if there was anything...

Luggage that speaks!… to me

This past week I was in JCP shopping for one of the amazing new LULU handbags that I wrote about here and I needed to take a detour to go to the little girls/big girls/powder/rest/room. While making a beeline through luggage, I nearly wet my pants in excitement when I bumped into this African print inspired confetti-colored marvel by Nigerian expat turned London designer, Duro Olowu. I am not kidding when I say, that this luggage literally spoke to me, urging me to take it home. The best...
