Channeling Whitney

Shoes: Stella McCartney (old)
Blazer: Color Block

There are those days when you wake up feeling adventurous.. there are those days when you wake up feeling elegant and simple and there are those days when you want to channel the energy of one of the greatest... and for me this was one of those days.   I woke up feeling all inspired by the Great Whitney Houston a la the How will I know video.    Big curly hair and a big bow..  so very eighties.. so very Whitney.

Food post.. Tuna by Taye

Tune Recipe with no Mayo, Tuna in 15 minutes, Food, Quick recipes, Food Blog, Fashion Blog, Best fashion blog, Best Food Blog, Taye Hansberry,
I rarely write food posts that are about food I make.  I will say that although I am not too shabby in the kitchen.. my on the go lifestyle doesn't allow for a whole lot of time to cook elaborate meals.. or to even cook at all.  So most of my recipes consist of meals that can be made in about 15 minutes or less.

I've been making this tuna recipe for years.  I never really understood the tuna recipes that had all the mayonnaise and eggs mixed in.   Don't get me wrong,  I am a mayo type of gal.   I just don't want it in my tuna.  And after years of not really eating tuna.  I decided to take matters into my own hands. Literally.

This tuna recipe is simple and super healthy..

Desert Flamingo..

swimwear, L Space, one piece swimsuit, Fashion Blogger, Best Fashion Blogger, Black fashion blogger,
Riding out to the desert is a luxury that I as an L.A. native have been partaking in since I was a wee kid.  My mom had a time share there when I was little and we have had a family home there for the last 10+ years.  But I have to say riding out to the desert to hang with awesome bloggers babes & flamingo's all while dawning beautiful L Space swimwear is definitely one of my all time desert highlights.

As the temps rise there will be those days where getting dressed in any type of creative or cute manor will seem like the last thing on earth you want to even think about much less do.  Those days where you just don't want to think right?  Believe me.. I get it..  I absolutely crave and love fashion and I still have those times where I just want to throw on some ratty old sweats and and an old tee shirt and call it a day.

8 Summer Hair Must Haves...

Summer hair.. 

I am always on the hunt for new hair products.  My hair tends to get sick of the same routine after about a year so finding new shampoos, conditioners and styling aids are essential to maintaining my tresses.  

Whether you go natural, chemically straight or just get a weekly blow out,  no style you choose will be at it's best unless your strands are at their best.  So I thought I would share some of the products that are in my summer bathroom cabinet rotation.

8 products I adore

Healthy Summer Hair..

Faith & Flower

Los Angeles is the mecca of amazing restaurants..  I absolutely love this city for the huge amount of variety hat is readily available at a dinners fingertips at any given moment.   Like seriously all in one day and with not much travel time involved you can go from a good old greasy breakfast to a vegan healthy  lunch to a beautiful and skillfully planned high end dinner with some of the best chefs on the planet.  I also adore that you can choose to spend $50 bucks or $500 bucks and still find what you want..  That's exactly what I found when I had a little glorious visit with Faith and Flower.

Yesterday (see here) was all about taking your Coachella dress from the festival to everyday.  Today is all about taking your Coachella dress from the festival to "Date Night".  Since Spring is upon us and the afternoon light reigns well into the evening,  a clever date night will involve a bit of afternoon daylight leading into the night.

Your beautiful Coachella Maxi shan't go to waist...
