In an effort to challenge myself and push my personal growth I have been trying to participate in activities/experiences that make me uncomfortable. One of those acts is going to events alone.

We had some beautiful weather over the week here in Oakland, CA. I got to spend sometime outside by the pool, walked to the farmers Market, and get some much needed Vitamin D in my life. As I was spending this much needed time outside I looked down at my feet and thought two things.
The amount of time I spend on my AM and PM skincare routine may be borderline out of control. However the results that I am getting from being serious about my skin are WORTH the time I put in into it. A product that has become a staple in both my AM and PM routine is Rose Water.

This past week I took an adventure to the Oakland Museum which is conveniently located in my hood to check out the exhibit on Sneaker Culture. I was really excited about seeing this because I have had a long standing love affair with sneakers and streetwear. If you have been following my blog for a while that’s def obvious. Due to this longstanding love I had abnormally high expectations for my trip. However It was low-key disappointing once I started my walk through the exhibit.

Style and Fashion is something that I have always had a connection to. I was having a conversation with a friend on Friday night and the subject of personal style came up and how that resonates with me. I believe for most of my life I have had a strong sense of ownership over my style. As a child I felt like that was the only thing that I actually had control over at the time. Like most kids I had to go to school, do chores, had extra curricular activities that I was forced to do (shout out to Chess Club and Soccer). Everything was planned out for me…naturally.
