Hey guys....

...exhale.  I have not given up on the blog...just working hard to re-vamp it...I really want to make it more relevant and interactive...and I just wanted to give you guys a sneak peek at what I've been working on...got some new button done...


I want to make it easy to see all my post in an organized way...so you will see a thrift button, where I will post photos of my latest thrifting adventures...which I want to do via video...sigh...maybe...if it's not too hard...big ups to all the vloggers out there...it's not easy to make it look good.

...here I will post all my latest DIY projects

...I'll post anything I design...

...you know how much I love to cook and eat...and here I will post anything food related...

...my passion...my plan is to post photos and videos of the places I travel...even within my own city...

...and, FYI...Mini wants to be more involved with the blog...yes.  So, we are working on how she can contribute...either thru video or posts...not sure...but, please stay tuned...we promise to have the new Soul Pretty up and running way before BET gets their new show, The Real Husbands of Hollywood, on the air...lol.  Mini and I can't wait for that...come on BET.

Just Checking In....Hello everyone.

...sorry for being MIA...I'm working on some things here on the blog...trying to make it more relevant and informative...stick with me...until then...this is how I would love to live today...

 ...this simple vignette could work at the end of my hall...if only I didn't have so much stuff.


I recently thrifted a couple of cute button down long sleeve blouses like this one...they look great with wide leg trousers or jeans...especially if you have extra long legs...If not, fake it with a pair of 5 inch heels...

i love, love, love everything about this layers look...a boyfriend button down sweater, next a leather jacket....topped off with a wool wrap...perfect for the weather we are experiencing here in the NYC...one day there's a hurricane, next a snow storm...next day 65 degrees...WTF?

sigh...dream on sister...dream on.


My Blog Needs A Make-over...

Hey everyone...thank you so much for all your kind words concerning Hurricane Sandy...UGH!  You guys are the BEST...  Mini and I weathered another storm...life.

Is anyone else out there waiting for this election to be over????

I'm tired of the blog...it needs a make-over...I wanna try something new...not sure how to do it...sigh...so my post may become a little irregular...stick with me...it may take a minute to figure out my next move...


The Storm has Passed...

Mini and I just wanted to drop in and thank everyone for your well wishes as we rode out hurricane Sandy...Not too much damage in my immediate neighborhood...the power is still out...and not coming back for at least another 5 days...subway service is limited...buses are running on a regular schedule...if you want to take your life into your hands and can get gas and drive into Manhattan you must have at least 3 people in your car in order to cross the bridge...Big box stores and the mall in my neighborhood are all closed...no electricity...schools have been closed all week...hopefully they will open next week...Mini has cabin fever and went out last night with her friends family for a little halloween party at their church...sigh.  All in all...we made it through the storm.


...but one of our favorite places in New York did not...this is our beach, Long Beach, LI...devastated by Hurricane Sandy...no more broad walk...homes floated into the sea...just horrible...


here are some pics of Mini and I on Long Beach this past summer...sigh.  Good times...we love this place...it's going to take a miracle to rebuild...stay tuned.



they hold a street fair on the broad walk twice a year...sigh.

...remember the beach front condos...yeah...gone.





That was then...this is now.
Be well...
