BRUNCH @ CHOCOLAT HARLEM, NY

Listen, your birthday comes around once a year so you better do it big! My last rendezvous for my birthday festivities was brunch at my favorite spot in Harlem. I closed out my Birthday week and 2017 with Brunch at Chocolat in Harlem, NY.

Chocolat’s food is always the BOMB so I knew they wouldn’t disappoint me. I ordered their Famous red velvet pancakes and fried chicken which was $25. This meal was very delectable along with my unlimited mimosas priced at $20 for 1.5 hours. I believed my sever had a crush on me because he was at our table like clockwork. Make sure if your ever in NYC to check them out.

LOUIS VUITTON’S VOLEZ, VOGUEZ, VOYAGEZ EXHIBIT @ THE AMERICAN STOCK EXCHANGE IN NYC

Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 9.01.16 PM.png

So as we know I celebrate my birthday for the entire month lol. On Saturday I went to view the Louis Vuitton exhibit down in the financial district with a couple of my friends. Being a fashion fanatic I wasn’t going to miss this exhibit which is only showing until January 7th.

This exhibit was titled VOLEZ,VOGUEZ,VOYAGEZ, which in French means Fly, Sail, Travel. Fun fact, since I was younger I’ve always wanted a Louis Vuitton trunk. I still want one and I’m going to get it…as soon as I have $25,000 to spear.

As you walk into the exhibit you are greeted with the history of Louis Vuitton and a beautiful luggage from the 1900s. Along the path of the exhibit was the history of Louis Vuitton and his start as a box maker in 1835. I loved this exhibit definitely something everyone the admires Louis Vuitton brand should try to make. Also, there are multiple photo opportunities to take advance of.

BIRTHDAY DINNER @STK MIDTOWN 12/27

A QUEEN was born on December 27th, 1991!!!! I am officially 26 years young can’t really believe it. I feel more focused, I feel more positive and I feel like I can attempt anything with enough confidence. I ended out my year with such a bang, it just has to be the best birthday ever! From my trip to DR to my birthday week of endless activities (more post coming soon). I am so ready to go into 2018 with a barrow of ideas and a positive mindset.

Unfortunately, my outfit wasn’t exactly what I planned but I definitely made it WERK! When I tell you I was livid that the place I ordered my fur from refunded my order! So I had to rock what I had. I dipped into my archives and wore my 2015 blueberry pimp Urban Outfitters fur. I rocked an uber sexy Mistress Rocks slinky slip dress, metallic Steve Madden heels & a sliver Top Shop gem clutch. I had dinner at STK which was soooooo delicious. I devoured my 10 oz steak & cheesy mac & cheese. STK was so superb I wish I could afford to have dinner every night there. Hey, a girl can dream.

BISH STOLE MY LOOK: TWEED BALMAIN MINI DRESS

Spotted: Rappers Nicki Minaj & Remy Ma rocking this Tweed Balmain mini dress, retailing at $2,119. Nicki Minaj wore this to the ‘Hand to Hand’  telethon event in NYC and Remy Ma rocked this for her holiday special with BET Networks. In my opinion, Nicki had too much going on with her outfit. The waist belt and the chunky necklace make the look a bit tacky. I like the simplicity of Remy’s look. What are your thoughts?

TRAVEL CHRONICLES : PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Greeting Everyone!

In preparation for my 26th Birthday (12/27), I decided to take a mini girls trip to DR for 6 days & 5 nights. My vacation was AMAZING!! I still can’t get off from the high. The Majestic Mirage was everything plus more. Our Butler Samuel was always there for any questions and concerns we had and even had a surprise set up in my room. We went on three excursions for the price of $139. We traveled out to Alta Gracia to ride buggies. After that, we trooped through the forest to get to a natural lake. The water was freezing I didn’t do too much swimming. The view was breathtaking.

The food on the resort wasn’t the greatest but it wasn’t bad. Everything was very Americanized which wasn’t surprising. My favorite restaurants were the hibachi and steakhouse. The resort had two foam parties which were FREAKIN’ AWESOME! Every night around 9 pm the resort’s staff would have a performance. I really felt like I was at a dedicated concert for Rock n Roll artist. About three nights during our stay we went to the resorts hottest club called Coco Disco. This whole trip was such an awesome experience, I am so blessed to have shared it with my two best friends. ❤

I definitely recommend visiting DR at least once in your lifetime. The Majestic Mirage is also an A+ hotel.
