Three Movies/Docs I Want To See Right Now…

War Witch –  The story of Komona, a 12 year old girl forced to take part in a rebel army in a fictitious African country.

A Place at the Table – A documentary chronicling the very real effects of food insecurity: families who are barely able to make it with the available food they have, and the lack of affordable, nutritional food choices where they live. These people go by unnoticed because they lack the cliche’d appearance of being underfed.

Better Mus’ Come – A love story taking place in 1970’s Jamaica where rival political gangs, used as bloody pawns, wrecked havoc in the streets, ending in the Green Bay Massacre of 1978.

Lavish Reads: Things Fall Apart

Chinua Achebe Nov. 16, 1930 – March 21, 2013
I read this iconic book by writer Chinua Achebe, years ago. It was the thought provoking and tragic tale of strong-headed village leader Okonkwo, that haunted me for days after I finished the last sentence. It made me question what whose values are more important and beneficial to my life – my own, or those who I might wish to emulate.
Today, one week after Achebe’s passing, I urge you to pick up a copy if you haven’t already.

One Fab Chic: Hannah Bronfman


It’s always refreshing to see a wealthy woman of color in a non-flashy, understated look. With the wives and girlfriends of the rich flashing red-bottoms and ill-fitting Hervé Léger, Hannah Bronfman, heiress to the Seagram’s liquor empire, seems to take a more lighthearted approach. Whether its a dressed-down sophisticated romper or a floral maxi, her wealth doesn’t dictate her carefree, could-care-less style. Hannah shows that “slumming it” doesn’t have to mean looking sloppy.

Arting Around

I indulged in the myriad of art events going on in New York City a few weeks ago as an extension of the Armory Art Fair. The best part was finding smaller, lesser known shows and collaborations dotted around the city. Below, a sampling from the Fountain Art Fair. Just being around so many inspiring minds rekindled my more creative side. Below is just a taste, but you can see more on my Facebook page. Go ahead, and get inspired!
