Salut mes beautés intelligentes! Hope everyone's summer has been great so far. I'm presently in New York City, and have been a little busy adjusting to this new place. There's so much to do, and I don't think I have ever been surrounded by this many people. Initially I felt quite overwhelmed (honestly, I still do haha) but I think the madness is starting to grow on me. If you have any recommendations on what to do in the city, please do tell! :D

The other day I decided to go exploring before class, and took a few pictures as I did. I was feeling a little under the weather and thus went for very comfortable pieces - ones that made me feel like I was in PJs, lol. Although, I've noticed that I am bit of a minimalist when it comes to design, art and of course, style.

The best Strawberry Banana smoothie I've ever had. Anddd it had just strawberries, bananas and ice, which is hard to come by these days. Unless it's homemade of course :)

I stopped by a local garment store and immediately felt at home. It reminded me of the days I dreaded following my mom to the market as a teenager. The only stores I enjoyed visiting, however, were the garment stores and their laces looked just like these. I remember referring to materials that resembled the brown and gold bundle in the picture below as "Senegalese Lace", I wonder if they're globally called that.

Then.. I walked into the new Urban Outfitters and took a few pictures of some items I loved! I was unusually ecstatic to be in the store. Have you ever walked into a store and felt like it just understood you and catered to your EVERY need? Sigh. That's how I felt, lol.

I loved that this had a bit of an Ethiopian influence to it. Actually, I think it IS Ethiopian! (Urban Outfitters)

Urban Outfitters.

Their new store is amazing. It has a cafe, reading area, salon, makeup center etc.. I could have literally spent my entire day there lol.

The Forest Feast - Thought it had a brilliant design for a vegan recipe book. No, still not going vegan just yet. :)
