How could you not love her? She’s stunning, she seems so down to earth, her fashion sense is out of this world, she’s young and free but also seems wise beyond her years. I am a big Zendaya fan. I love how she takes risks with her hair and her style, experiments with color and prints but never compromises elegance and swag. Here are some of her best casual and formal looks that I totally adore:

As I write this, I am currently 35,000 feet up in the air as I head back to NY from a quick getaway in Georgia. I must admit, I’m very happy with the number of times I’ve gotten to travel this year from the Virgin Islands to Haiti, and even to a few states including Virginia, Delaware & Florida. Traveling more was at the top of my goals on my 2015 vision board so I’m glad to be a living testament that writing and speaking things into existence help bring them to fruition.

Lacking inspiration? Such has been the case for me lately but Miss Turini is here to the rescue. As fashion market director at Cosmopolitan Magazine and street style star who has wowed me endlessly during Fashion Month, Shiona turns head effortlessly with her impeccable sense of style.

“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and in each of them we’ve found each other. And maybe each time, we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come.”

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

“I am in competition with no one. I run my own race. I have no desire to be better than anyone in any way, shape or form. I just aim to improve, to be better than I was before. That’s me and I’m free.” – Unknown
