You guys, the level of art on the walls in Barcelona is insane! I am going to have at least 5 or 6 different posts strictly dedicated to the walls and my pink dress. I went in a 2 block radius and got a majority of the photos. Please, bare with me. Yet, in my defense, isn’t that what this blog is all about…finding the beauty in everyday locations and places? I think so. I hope my posts continue to inspire you to get out there and find cool walls, cracks and crevices no matter where you are and find the beauty in them. After all, we are all artists in our own rightful way. Once again, this simple pink dress makes for the perfect outfit concerning the beautiful background. I’m in love and I never thought I would ever set foot in Barcelona again after catching food poisoning back in 2011…yes I held a mini grudge. What can I say, ya girl likes to eat. ha.
This Baati dress is amazing! Im really digging its utilitarian design. The baati,is a classic cotton dress from Somalia. Though it’s a sort of housedress, designed in the spirit of one-size-fits-all utilitarianism, the baati conjures elegance and refinement. Apparently these dresses are sold for a whopping $20, ummm…excuse me, I’m in. However, I will add that model Halima Aden looks good in anything, which could lead to my interest in the dress. But who cares, isn’t that the point of models, to get people to consume the garb because they make it look so good?! Final word: Love it!
Experienced fashion stylist Linda Rodin used her beauty icon status to create a set of beautiful lip colors. Most may recognize her from her lifestyle brand RODIN, loved by fans for its collection of face and body oils. It’s only right she unleash a new line of Luxury Lipsticks and matching Lip Pencils. The lipstick range features five shades ranging from the nude pink “So Mod” to the bright orange “Tough Tomato.” Inspired by her late mother, Rodin even created a beautiful purple shade titled “Billie on the Bike.” Final Word: It’s never to late to keep reinventing oneself.
Totally taking advantage of the hot days Paris is currently having. We’re still experiencing the in-between stage weather wise, so you know I had to take full advantage of the warm weather to go on a hunt for some cool walls brimming with street art and murals in continuation of my ongoing Graffiti series ! #ILoveParis

Aside from the title of the post, I guess you could say I was def feeling myself this day. It was cold, rainy and not the best of conditions, but I made the best of it. Even got some smiles from strangers, which makes me happier than you might expect. I even got called Rihanna a few times, I must say, I wasn’t too upset about this because I love her style. I mean, who doesn’t?
