Never Ending Closet

*I would like to preface this post by stating that I am not being paid to write this. This is completely genuine and my utmost personal opinion. A couple weeks ago, I was approached by a clothing company that I knew very little about. I had seen commercials and pop-ups for Gwynnie Bee, even gone so far as to click on their website, but I didn't really understand what it was. Regardless, they wanted me to shoot for them as a model and I was booked for the job. As soon as the b

Fall/Winter Trends at Maree Pour Toi

I flew into New York City this morning and felt that familiar clutch in my chest. This city has a hold on me, even when it's cold and rainy.

On hot summer days, you can skip your makeup altogether and use this to give you cov

Dubai On A Layover

If you want to skip the whole story, the moral is that you should definitely leave the airport!!! The last time I booked a flight to South Africa, I had the option to fly to Heathrow with a short layover, or Dubai with a 9 hour layover. I had never had much interest in visiting Dubai. Don't get me wrong, Dubai is an absolutely insane city, but it is a mirage. It is a city in the sand, that really began developing when oil was found there in the 60's but took off in the year 2
