Traits of a Modern Classic Woman (part 2)

I’m truly happy with the response part one of this list received. As I’m writing this, I am watching a documentary on JFK’s scandalous affairs, but my mind was solely on his wife, Jackie Kennedy. Many of the traits I’m listing, women have used for many years to over come seemingly irreparable life situations. Compassion, resilience and grace particularly help women who find themselves in … Continue reading Traits of a Modern Classic Woman (part 2)

Traits of a Modern Classic Woman

Modern women are a force to be reckoned with. We are certainly viewed as women who can change the world. However, in the ongoing fight to be seen as strong, important and valuable to society, somewhere along the line some women have lost their way. They have lost what makes them women, feminine, classic. One of my missions [in life] is to consistently encourage women … Continue reading Traits of a Modern Classic Woman

xo Learning to Love

by KEISHEL A. WILLIAMS “Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.” Author Nicholas Sparks really captured the essence of this emotion in a few shorts words. No surprise there, after all, he wrote “The Notebook,” one of the greatest contemporary love stories of our generation. It took me a little while to gather my thoughts on this subject, not … Continue reading xo Learning to Love

New Brooklyn Chic


 Let’s talk Easter in Brooklyn! Easter has always been one of the more relaxed holidays for me. Although growing up in the Caribbean Easter meant some extra housework (like at Christmas) and pastel colored dresses with ‘nice’ shoes, as a Brooklyn Girl my style AND lifestyle has surely taken a different turn living in New York City. I often opt out of the cute pastel dresses for dark skirts and I usually forego the ‘nice’ shoes for some sexy boots.  I love Spring and more importantly, I love a great Spring wardrobe! The weather is warmer with a little nip of chill air from time to time, which allows for the ultimate seasonal cross-over of boots and mini skirts. The warmer weather also gives one liberty to go exploring in the neighborhood!

This Easter weekend I’m out on the town soaking up that New Brooklyn lifestyle, where we’re still in a nebulous state as cultures merge and start to take form. I’m a huge proponent of merging cultures as I like to learn and explore new things, and from the looks of it, Crown Heights is fast becoming a budding version of the East Village. It’s nice to be able to absorb all that art and culture right in my backyard.  From the foods to the fashion, the New Brooklyn lifestyle is taking on a life of its own and now it’s a bit more like me – a mixture of rugged and chic! Enjoy!



Happy Easter!!!

Caribbean’s Next Top Model – Feet off the Ground

Another week, another physical challenge for the ladies vying for the title of Caribbean’s Next Model. Last week they felt the burn and ran through the paces like an American footballer, and this week they faced the true model challenge of having to acknowledge the movements of their own bodies. A model needs to understand her body as much as she needs to understand her environment … Continue reading Caribbean’s Next Top Model – Feet off the Ground
