"Almost everything is reusable"

Maria Westerberg makes great design of what most of us throw away. Most recently
a collection of textile waste to the Indian. Here she shares with others their
secrets on the best way to recycle.

I absolutely love that throw pillow she's holding (no pun intended). It looks like re-used saris of rich fabrics.

Non fall clothing

Most of my regular blogs are show casing plum tones and wools.....so not relevant to me this year. When is it okay to wear linen and T-shirt to work in October? When you're interning on island and you can see the sea and cruise ships from your office premises. strings of faux pearl and pointed toe kitten heels suggests that you made an effort especially in a very conservative work environment.

T- shirt- The Gap
Linen wide leg pants - F21
Necklaces - Aldo

Here, Hear, Hair I am.

Since I chopped off my locs arond three months ago, I've looked in the mirror too many times and wondered what the hell I'd done. It was long. It was 'somewhat' socially acceptable and becoming mainstream. It was easy. It was safe.

In the last 2 weeks or so, I've come to terms with this hair and many other changes in my life. Now I moisturize, style, let go...do something , do nothing.

Wearing a twist out while eating a snail. Yeah a snail. See the story here.

Bantu knots- ish!

Pinned up. Eyes closed.

Newly conditioned with castor oil.

Child's play

Janelle Monae- esque

Have you changed your hair recently. Why does length give such security?

be good. do better. look your best ( regardless!!)

Tag! I am it.

Okay. While I've been slacking in posting here, since I spend most of my time travel blogging. I got tagged by the beauty, smart lady who is Irie Chic.

THE STORY: This past January I visited my grandfather in Jamaica, after not seeing him for nearly 10 years. This is a photo of me messing around with the contents of my grandma's kitchen. My grandma died over 10 years ago and my grandpa never re-married, dated nor changed a single thing in his wife's home. While I was joking around, I was happy to find the place I had happy childhood memories, in in tact. LIKE A MUSEUM!!

The Rules:
1) open your 1st photo folder
2) scroll down to the 10th photo
3) post the photo and the story behind it
4)Tag 5 or more people

I'm tagging

do good. be better. look your best.
