Museum Of Ice Cream Los Angeles

I don’t remember when or how I came across the Museum Of Ice Cream (MOIC) Instagram account, but when I did, I fell in love! All the color. All the fun. All the fab. So when a girl’s trip to LA commenced, we HAD to make an appearance. And let me tell you, this was an unforgettable experience! If you ever have the opportunity to visit any of the MOIC locations, I fully recommend it.

The experience starts outside where there is music and dancing. I had a mini jam session with some of the staff who all wear pink, even down to their Apple Watch bands – how cute?! You are then taken in groups to the entrance and learn a little bit about MOIC and solemnly swear to have fun, take pictures and touch almost everything. The smaller groups help to enhance the museum experience as you’re not rushed or crowded.

Upon entering the doors of MOIC, you’re greeted with your first treat. Each room in the museum has a special sweet treat from ice cream to magical concoctions made of candy. Pro Tip: Don’t eat too much before you visit so you can fully enjoy each treat.

Each room in the Museum of Ice Cream pays homage to a type of ice cream, its toppings, and vibrant colors that make you feel nostalgic. The MOIC provokes magical, happy thoughts making it OK to literally scream for ice cream.

Unlike many museums, MOIC strongly encourages flash photography and video. And you know what else is encouraged? Playing in a pool of sprinkles and hugging giant gummy bears. You guys. Seriously, the MOIC is like a dream! All the things you image as a kid come to life and you can document it all.

We had so much fun taking photos/Instagram Boomarangs, stuffing ourselves with delicious sweet treats and making memories. The Museum of Ice Cream is the perfect mixture of art, color, and childhood dreams come true.

AdDRESSing Your Confidence

Dresses are a fantastic feature of any wardrobe. Whether you’re a girly girl, or a tomboy at heart, wearing a classy number now and again can feel amazing. The right dress is a power symbol, like a decent car, or a flashy watch. The perfect dress ensures you’ll turn every head in a room. No matter your tastes, that power is sure to feel great.

But, sometimes, we all go through a bit of a wobbly when it comes to dresses. They’re a clothing choice which needs a fair bit of confidence. There’s no getting around the fact that you’ll have to show more of your body in a dress than you may at other times. And, that takes guts! But, it usually does pay off. If you’re having a crisis about the prom dresses you can’t get yourself to try on, or just a dress for a business meeting, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to look at a few ways you can address your lack of dress confidence, and get back into the swing of things.


Do the prep

As mentioned above, wearing a dress means showing more of yourself than you may be accustomed to. That can be tough. But, if you know you that those parts are primed, you’ll find the exposure much easier to deal with. Obviously, your first step should be to shave and moisturize your legs. If you have the confidence to reveal the fuzz, then good for you. But, most of us can’t go that far, and even one day’s worth of growth can stop us reaching for that dress. So, make sure to shave before you even attempt getting your legs out. Think, too, about applying some fake tan. You don’t want to over the top here, but a sun-kissed glow is always a great way to bolster your confidence.

Small practice sessions

Like anything, dress confidence is all about practice. If you jump straight in with a big event, you may struggle to find the necessary courage to go all out. But, if you get into the habit of wearing a dress for small trips, you’ll soon get used to the exposure. So, instead of waiting for your next night out, wear that dress to the shop, or on a walk around the block. In no time, you’ll feel much more comfortable. You may even start to crave the freedom dress wearing offers.

Believe you look good

There’s no denying that this is easier said than done, but believing you look good in dresses is a sure way to find your awesome. Half of the battle with a dress is the way you wear it. If you don’t believe you’re owning that outfit, your posture will become hunched and defensive. That kind of thing really shows with a revealing dress. Instead, believe you look terrific. Hold your head high, and your back straight, and strut your stuff. Before you know it, your belief is sure to come true.

Living Legend Wallahi G

You ever make a new friend and a little bit into the friendship you think, “You really just fell into my life and I kinda fux with it!” That’s how things are going with my newfound friend, Giancarlo aka Wallahi G.

He randomly entered my life almost four months ago and he has been a pain in my ass, but most importantly, the friend I never knew I needed. He’s one of those people who has a contagious sense of humor, good spirit and motivation out of this world. And with that, I am proud to introduce you to song writer, hit maker, risk taker – Wallahi G.
Wallahi’s story:

He’s a recruiter by day, artist by night (or whenever he gets time away from his desk and feels inspired). He’s also a proud supporter of the City of Southfield, where I’m also from (shoutouts to the S). **Southfield made us, college changed us**

Wallahi has been into music for 15 years, but is fresh to recording having 1 year under his belt with his first project called “Funemployed”. It’s a compilation of tracks relatable to millennials, or anyone who likes to have a good time. He describes Funemplyed as “millennial-focused rhythm and poetry.”

Fun fact about Wallahi:

He left his management-based job at a well-known grocery chain, packed up and traveled through Central America for 6 months. If that’s not awesome and inspiring, I don’t know what is. During his travels, he fell in love with the culture, the people, and the architecture. He came back to the states to re-up on funds and create more music. His most recent release, and one of my personal favorites, “All I Need” ft. 2:19pm is a rap ballad chronicling his “lust issues”. Give it a listen here. I promise you’ll bob your head!

I won’t spill all the details on this young gent. Get into his music to learn more! Jam out on SoundCloud.

Oh, and Happy Birthday!!! ❤

Monochromatic Magic

Monochromatic: Containing or using one color. It’s fashion – look it up!

But seriously, this is my first time toying with a monochrome look and I think I’m obsessed. This plum color is sleek and sexy and perfect for fall.

Of course you can play with other colors like camel and olive green; or even pink and lime green. The color wheel is your oyster!

I paired this Fashion Nova bomber jacket with a super comfy, velvet Forever 21 bodysuit with jeans and over the knee boots from Target. Each piece was purchased separately but hanging near each other in my closet, I knew I had to at least attempt the look.

Check out your closet for a monochromatic look. Let me know how you play with one color.

Fall Fashion Inspo

So let me get this straight. You guys begged for fall foliage and pumpkin spice everything and no that it’s here, you’re throwing up Christmas trees?

News flash, it’s still fall and we still have to celebrate Thanksgiving! Cool it with the jingle bells, alright?!

But really though. Fall fashions are so exciting so why rush for fancy snow boots and scarves? With this look, I hope to spark some inspiration for everyone to take back fall and not rush the holiday season. Live in the moment and enjoy your time.

Keep your reds in the back of the closet for now (red lips are OK of course) and embrace Earth tones, muted colors and deep purples.

Steal my look:

Bodysuit – Fashion Nova

Pants – Similar 

Choker – Pitaya 

Shoes – DSW

Happy Fall Ya’ll! Don’t ya forget it.
