Hanging the Bling

Before, i started hanging up my 'bling"(i wish), I wasn't getting a lot of use out of them because they were in a jewelry box and trying to get them out of the tangled mess they were in was always too tasking. At other times, i simply forgot what jewelry i owned because they were out of sight.
Anyway, sometime last year i went apartment hunting and in one of the rooms, the owner had her jewelry arranged on a rectangular piece of cloth that was hung on the wall. I copied this idea using a place mat purchased from a dollar store and ever since, my jewelry life has changed for the better. It is so convenient picking them out because i can them all at one glance.

some of the jewelry i own hung up on the place mat

You can also purchase a jewelry hanger here


  1. I totally agree I have a jewelry hanger also and It's way easier to wear things

  2. hnmm really nice idea.. i still hve the same problem of having all my jewelry stuffed into J boxes...

  3. Check out these too...nice and affordable.

  4. My jewelry is still in a mess. i put them in a big chocolate box. the jewelry hanger is really nice and convenient.

  5. Hey, very good idea!
    As soon as i am out of this house, I will use it!!! :D

  6. I'm stealing your placemat idea...very creative.

  7. O maybe if i owned a jewelry hanger of some sort i'd have some more earrings other than the ones i have on now, which by the way are the only ones i own!
    I gave up on buying jewelry cause they always seemed to get lost! id leave it on my dresser and when i wanted to wear them again, i wont find them..

    lol..longstory short i like the idea! thanks

    Im sorry but i have a hard time making comments nice and neat :)

Things to do in Havana, Cuba

HELLO EVERYONE! Yes, I am screaming at the top of my lungs, as I haven't been in this space this year. First things first, how are you all coping with the pandemic? I hope you and your family are safe. It is a tough time for everyone, and I am hoping this passes away sooner than later.
Now on to today's post. Guys, last August I made it to my dream city, Havana! Cuba was a country that had rated high on my travel list for ages, but due to travel restrictions imposed on U.S. residents, I thought a visit there was impossible. This cannot be further from the truth, and I will explain the travel process in another blog post. 
My time in Cuba was spent in 4 different cities, and I will be starting my Cuba travel series with Havana.Enjoy
1. Ride in a classic car --this is a must do The classic car rides are a fun way to see the city. We opted for a 2 hour ride, and we got to see China Town, Havana Vedado, Revolutionary Square, and John Lennon Park.

2. Visit Plaza de la Revolución Revoluti…

Confetti Fun

Hey chica, it's that time of the year again--my yearly birthday photoshoot! Whoop whoop!
In 2016, I did the Rose, Tulle, and Leather shoot, while 2015 was Colors and Balloons. The 2017 shoot was themed Ethreally mint, and last year was Wintery Black. This year I had an elaborate theme in mind, but due to time constraints, I wasn't able to pull it off. I ended up settling for something really simple and fun. And what's more fun than playing in colorful confetti.
Enjoy the photos.

That's all folks! What do you think of this year's birthday shoot?

Living Colorfully in Old Town Alexandria

Hey guys, happy humpday! Just two more days, and the weekend is here--whoop! Speaking about weekends, this past Saturday was a fun one! My cousin was visiting from Lagos, so we decided to take a train ride to Old Town, Alexandria in Virginia. 
The day started with brunch, and ended with super fun vibrant colors we encountered all around Old Town Alexandria. I usually do not publish videos here, but we also took many cool videos and I couldn't resist not posting it here.
Enjoy... I have been to this restaurant several times, so once I got in, I found my way to this wall that I love so muc In addition to American dishes, Warehouse offers Cajun & Creole dishes. I love NOLA style food, so of course I had gumbo and beignets--it was yum! Now unto the streets Color makes me happy I have several photos in front of this vibrant Torpedo Art Factory wall Random More Randoms
