This evening, Thursday, August 30th, Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles (AFWLA) will host “Africa Is Rising”, a networking social highlighting Africa’s fashion and textile industries, at The Standard Hotel (550 S Flower Street) from 6-10pm. Tina Tangalakis of Della LA is our special guest, and proceeds from all ticket sales will go towards the MacDella Cooper Foundation.
Unfortunately, I already have plans for this evening but if I didn’t I would be there! Hope you all get to enjoy the event!

The continent is so much more than meets the eye. And much like New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas D. Kristoff recently stated, in his article titled as such: Africa is [still] on the rise.AFWLA is encouraging a minimum of $5 donations as 100% of all proceeds will go towards the MacDella Cooper Foundation. All payments should be made via Eventbrite. The first 50 registrants will receive a gift bag featuring items from the generous sponsors.

I thought today was Thursday. As much as want it to be I don’t want to rush time so I’m taking a minute to enjoy Wednesday with this holosphere I found on Kenzo Blog!!! Incredible right?!
You’re the first thing I see in the morning when I wake up
You shower me with love everyday
You never take a day off from our love and over-time is never a problem
When we travel together we share the most weird yet incredible memories
When I’m feeling down you literally lift me up
No one captivates my mind like you
When I’m apart from you I feel a piece of me is missing
Never was aware love could be so fruitful, challenging and AWESOME!
I love you, I like you and I can’t wait to see you.
Happy Anniversary babe <3

I grew up watching Spice World on VHS, wearing platform sneakers and trying to figure out which one of my friends and I were who in the group Spice Girls. Back in the day everyone wanted to be baby spice so I was always nominated to be scary and sporty spice (which was fine by me, my hair was definitely curly and huge and I adored sports). I look back at how much entertainment and fun this all female group brought to my childhood and I smile. Thank you Spice Girls!!!
Any who, I love the Spice
Girls Women and here’s another look at their performance and their style from last night.
