 I spent the past few days people watching, but specifically observing the women I saw in the streets of Paris. How they dressed, how they styled their hair, their body language. Parisian women exude a level of self-asuredness that is quite liberating. It’s an inevitable fact that Parisian style exudes an air of freedom. That undeniable cool that initially seems so elusive, but simultaneously appears simple, unpretentious, and perhaps effortless.

 I finally cracked the code to achieving the day to day Parisian Chic Look.

(it's quite simple)

Clean lines + Beautiful textures + Comfort

A Mixture of worn out clothing with new pieces, perfect balance between luxury and inexpensive vintage finds. Sounds like I’ve been Parisian all along.

You can look Parisian for under $100 and here’s how:

  • Get a nice vintage trench coat from the thrift store for $14
  • A pair of vintage levi’s for $7 thrifted
  • A crisp white tee shirt from ZARA $8
  • A nice pair of ballerina flats or sneakers (I noticed most parisian women wear adidas, Pumas, Reeboks, keds...comfy type sneakers) mine were $20 from a vendor on the street.
  • A chic cross Body Bag from forever XXi $25

WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE???

I stopped by the L & J store on Prince street not too long ago and instantly fell in love with the minimal ambience of the brand.

i'm a sucker for Design and great Aesthetic, Larsson and Jennings just happens to get it. 

Birth from two cities, Stockholm and London, L&J unifies minimal Swedish Design with British Aesthetic. Creating modern timepieces for style-savvy individuals like myself.

Making a decision on what timepiece I wanted to incorporate in my day to day was quite difficult as you saw on my snapchat. There was a plethora of timeless choices to select from. 

When picking out a watch I tend to lean towards something with a masculine appeal but this time I wanted something more sleek and feminine. The older I get the more feminine i'm becoming... i don't know what's happening to me but i'm embracing it.

I turned my grandma shoes from zara into mules because they were killing the back of my feet.

Are there any well made shoe brands out there that cater to women with wide feet? :(

The best camera bags for stylish girls | Asiyami Gold
Asiyami Gold x Lo & Sons

Finding a well made camera bag that suites my day to day lifestyle has been a longtime struggle. One of the problems I faced as someone who enjoyed documenting her day to day activities and constantly on the go; camera bags were not stylish enough to match my aesthetic. They were to bulky to carry around and screamed "photographer" which attracted attention while on my solo travels. It Made it known to the natives that I was a tourist and also made me a target, which isn't always the safest for someone traveling solo. I used to be the ultimate bag lady during my ventures. It also wasn't the best for someone who is as scatterbrained as I am. Trust me when I say carrying multiple items on the run is never a good idea. With multiple compartments, and versatility, this cognac leather piece from Lo & Sons has saved my life. Now i can travel Light.

BEAUTY TALK

with

ASIYAMI GOLD

For those of you following me on snapchat you know I had a rough week last week.

I've never been a beauty "guru" because I try my best to keep my maintenance level at the bare minimum. I grew up with boys which required me to act like one therefore keeping up with beauty tricks wasn't something that triggered excitement in my adolescent years.

I remember my best friend Lauren would try to teach me how to wear make up and put on eyeliner I got so overwhelmed and annoyed--

1) because i'm a perfectionist and my lines weren't precise enough. 2) I didn't understand it. 

Although I admired makeup tricks I couldn't wrap my head around how certain things worked to enhance a woman's beauty. I spent most of my highschool career on the basketball and volleyball court, there was no time to waste on beauty but I still loved the art of femininity. I'ld always play around with lipstick here and there but still never got the hang of make up entirely.

So sad to say that it took me 24 years to actually master how to do something with my face. Thanks to hours spent on youtube videos and taking notes from friends who are gurus themselves.

Now you see ladies... I love make up. I love getting dolled up and looking glamorous but what I've never been a fan of was feeling like I needed makeup to cover up what was underneath. I want my skin to be flawless with/without make up. When i went on my rant on snapchat last week I was overwhelmed because I had an important shoot coming up that required me to look beautiful and flawless but in order for me to exude beauty I have to feel beautiful (internally). 

This year has taken a toll on me emotionally. My hormones have gone bananas and all that toxicity going on within is currently being eliminated out from my skin. Initially I felt insecure about what was going on with my skin because I wasn't used to having skin issues. I would always boast about my ridiculous intake of soda and carbs and how it didn't effect my skin, but that has changed. 

As you get older your body changes, which is why it's important to form those healthy habits in your early 20's.  If you are between the ages of 18-28 reading this please start nurturing those healthy habits now because the bad habits will eventually catch up with you later. 

As I take the necessary steps to getting my skin and body back to healthier state, I will be documenting parts of my journey in hopes to help someone out there who might be dealing with the same issue. Adult acne is not cute and you don't have to settle for things that don't make you feel good about yourself. 

Some things are beyond our control--like having a oily/combination skin type. However there are things we can actively be doing to change our circumstances.

If you have the power to fix the things you don't like about yourself take the necessary steps towards making those changes. It's okay to complain about it but what are you doing to change it? In order to see those changes we also need to make those lifestyles changes ourselves.

TIPS

  1. Love yourself from the inside out (sanctimonious perhaps?)
  2. Water should be the first thing you drink when you wake up. It's even better with lemons.
  3. Workout!!! it decreases your stress levels.
  4. Take your daily multivitamins.
  5. Wash your face twice daily.
  6. Exfoliate once-twice a week.
  7. Keep your bed sheets clean.
  8. Make healthier food choices.
  9. Know your skin type and treat it accordingly.
  10. Keep yourself in environments that allow you to flourish and be your best. (Happiness is a choice) #nostresszone

Maasai Necklace Airport in Kenya

FRAYED DENIM CULOTTES ZARA

Heels MISSGUDED

Seamlessly mixing tribal elements with modern aesthetics tickles my fancy. This Maasai necklace is the quintessential statement piece that can enhance any minimal ensemble. 

Every time I wear this necklace it makes me feel royal, beautiful, elegant and confident.

This eclectic jewelry created by the women of the Maasai tribe is not only beautiful but also has important cultural significance. The beadwork an individual wears is a symbolism of their age and social status. Generally, individuals of high social standing will wear more colorful and intricate jewelry. 

 The colors used in the beadwork are selected for their beauty. The colors are also symbolic and have important meanings understood by the tribe. Often these meanings have an association with cattle, which is the Maasai's main food source and for which they have a deep connection. Below is a list of the main colors used in Maasai beadwork and the meanings associated with each.

  • Red - stands for bravery, unity, and blood. Red is the color of cows blood. Often a cow is slaughtered when the Maasai meet and therefore unity is associated with red.
  • White - represents peace, purity, and health. The association with health comes from white cows milk which the tribe drinks to stay healthy.
  • Blue - represents energy and the sky. Rain falls from the blue sky which provides water for the cattle.
  • Orange - symbolizes hospitality. The association with cattle is that visitors are served cows milk from orange gourds.
  • Yellow - like orange yellow also symbolizes hospitality. The animal skins on visitors beds are yellow.
  • Green - symbolizes health and land. Cattle graze on the green grass of the land.
  • Black - represents the people and the struggles they must endure. 

Maasai Facts

On this scorching hot day in Atlanta rather than chilling in familiar denim, I opted for a cool pair of Culottes from ZARA. What made these a great find  was the affordable  price tag that came along with it. I live for affordable chic + statement pieces. 

Although I tapped into my savings for this super ZARA sale going on, I'm one happy gal :D
