While in NYC we hit up this brand new lounge that opened up in Brooklyn at Nostrand & Halsey called "Vodou". 

When I walked in the vibe was fantastic, people were dancing chatting and drinking it up, and a few interesting people stopped by like Malik Yoba! I had the opportunity to speak with one of the owners "Daphnee" who saw potential in an old building, purchased it and turned into this hidden gem.
The DJ spinned old school tunes that took you way back. You must check Vodou Bar and let me know if you enjoyed it as much as I did!

Here are a few pics of the Bar.

Come as you are... this place is the perfect spot to chill.. you won't want to leave!
My Boys really enjoyed this new hot spot...Ced, DJ Mo Betta, GMan, Ernest,& Bernard
Chi-Town & Toronto stand up!

Kate, and I rolled with the homies...

Open 7 days a week

Step out in Style... A Style Session with Long Gowns

One of my girls posted a picture on FB of a BCBG dress the other day, and it reminded me that I had the dress and haven't taken it out this summer! I was so inspired that I decided to do a video using some of my favorite long dresses to give you ideas for weddings and special occasions. I recently went through my closet because I was having a Lawn Sale, and realized that I had a lot of clothing that I don't wear!

Do you have this problem?

It totally inspired me to do some videos using what I have! "My Favorites!" I really shouldn't buy a new dress or outfit when going out because I can make what I have work! I hope you enjoy them! Here is the newest one!

Stephanie Ming thanks for posting the pic!

Spend it Good.... Come with me to look for a gift at Rock City!

It's that time of the year and I have to get my significant other a Birthday gift! This week I wanted to visit my Hubby's favorite Jeweller "Kris", so I headed to the Jewellery Exchange...

Back in the day my mom would go to see Tony who would make her bangles chains etc. Now everyone goes to Kris; a Hot Jeweller with an impressive client list and great designs for all of your custom needs, Watches, Pieces, Diamond Rings and Fronts

The selection caters to men, but there are women's watches and rings as well. Take a look at the closeup of this beautiful diamond ring that I tried on:


I bought my boo's first watch from Kris as a Wedding gift to my hubby. I had my eye on this one for him because even though it has a lot of bling, its not as dressy as his other one it's more sporty!

I liked this one a well Gucci Inspired

Kris had so many beautiful pieces I couldn't decide! I did narrow it down to 2 different kinds of diamonds...

I love these!

This was my favorite. I love Black Diamonds

There is a huge selection of Jesus Pcs and Rosary Style Diamond Chains

 This was my most favorite

If you are downtown and you get a chance to go to the Eaton Centre, Rock City is inside the Jewellery Exchange 215 Yonge St
To contact Kris call 416-366-7625

Look of The Day 07/12/11

The weather in Toronto has been amazing! I have nothing to complain about! Actually, I take that back I wish I didn't have to wear black to work. What I have been doing to deal with this is just bringing a nice top colourful top for shopping or dinner after work. 

Today I am wearing a silk top in my most favorite shade of pink! I paired it with a pair of black skinny dress pants, and for fun I thought I would wear a pair of fun flats

The top is from BCBG. It has razor cut detail on the top and this beautiful flower in the middle. The back also has the razor cut detail as well as a small elastic gather at the back that helps to cinch the waist.

My Shoes are animal print T strap flats by David Dixon. I love this shoes because they are so comfortable and the pink trim makes them pop

My  Makeup today is smokey, my usual look
MAC Studio Fix NC45, NW45, NW45 concealer, Urban decay Black Palette's Black dog, Blaze & Toasted, Bronzer by UD Gilded, Cheeks Fetish Blush also by UD and Perversion 24/7 Eyeliner

Step Out in Style.... My Favorite girl from Marciano!

I went to Vaughn Mills the other day, I went to Marciano and I was happy to run into my favorite girl in the store! Nikoleen McFarlane! She is my favorite Sales Associate because she helped me find a jacket that I was in love with after 1 year of looking for it?
I had to post a pic of her because she had on a great summer outfit for an easy day at work, and her makeup was on point!

How cute is she? Love the Feather Earrings and the light blue with Khakis!
Thanks for the pics Nikoleen!
