Poem X Blissful Remedy

Hold me tight
Hold me right
From the stars until the blissful sunrise
 A surprise that can not be denied
Feel the everlasting love
That glows within my body
Feel my touch
Feel my pulse blush
Only for me to see
For you to know
If this bliss we have can last
Im strapped in for the permanent cast
If its a roller coaster
Sending me loads of far away posters
Ill hang every one on my wall
I feel steamy inside
As on my cocoa skin goosebumps arise
Everyday I pray for a new sunrise
My eyes comply
The view, oh so sweet
Memories made on repeat
A compromise never denied
My love will always supply.

Iggy Azalea X Nicki Minaj X Jhene Aiko X New Music Videos

Iggy Azalea is back with the newest of four singles off of her new album entitled "The New Classic". I love the Clueless theme of the video and appreciate Iggy's flow as a rapper. She raps about what she knows so this collaboration with Charli XCX is clever, stylish and fun. Watch below!

The next video I put up mostly for visuals. Nicki Minaj is beautiful and the toning down of the pink wigs and crazy costumes has me focusing on more of her as a rapper. It's a plus that what she is rapping of events that I have personally experienced. Especially these "ballers" in the club. Always looking. 

jhene aiko bed peace

If you didn't know Jhene Aiko is the female vision of Drake. She gives you the soothing feel with a mixture of real feelings and creative descriptions. I've been listening to her music for a couple of years and I've played this song all the way out. I like the original concept for the video and of course my love for Childish Gambino is real. I don't care, I don't care what you say! This collaboration is amazing. Sail out and enjoy this video!


Personal X Reflection X Move

Sometimes we get so caught up in what is happening right now, 
We forget what we have been through or better yet where we are headed.
There will always be a problem, always something taking our attention off of that next move.
I should know, it seems my biggest failures are when I forget the bigger picture.
Weeks pasts and I'm like, uhhhh what did I do but dwell in that mountain of a mole hill?
This life is all about a brighter future, building an empire. 
There will be a brighter day if you look up for it.
If not you'll be stuck, looking on the shaded ground for rusted pennies only to trick and trip yourself into limiting yourself.
It's already February of 2014 and I'm trying to get somewhere so profound this year.
It's my time.
Something is feeding it into my soul however, getting sidetracked and distracted only takes away that oh so precious time.
It's time. 


Spring X Style X 5 Pieces

Spring is on its way and with the change in weather so will our wardrobe. I gathered a list of 5 items to upgrade in your closest.

7 Key Pieces for Spring 2014

Quilted purse

Jimmy Choo tote bag

The tote bag for me is always a necessity. I love to have a bag that can fit everything I need and maybe some stuff I just want. Variating in colors, textures and pattern your bag can one up any outfit.

The Cropped Pant

Rochas black white pants

DKNY green pants
$160 -

What better way to spruce up a regular pant by adding a fashionable shorter hem. Paired with a strappy shoe your outfit is broken up into a more updated pant look!

The Contrast Heel

Givenchy black sandals

Dune leopard shoes
$130 -

Jane Norman black sandals
$58 -

Making a comeback from last summer seen on runways from Paris, London to New York the contrast heel is here to stay for another season. Fashionably updating any ensemble. No outfit is complete without the right shoe!

Beyonce X Flawless X Chinmamanda X Music Video

Beyonce does it right everytime.
I know one half of spectators are obsessed with Beyonce's album while the other half hates her guts in general (Illuminati this, overrated, blah, blah.). 
Listening to her album with a neutral listening palette I have considered "Flawless" as one of my favorite songs. Specifically the part in the song about women empowerment. Not only does it spell out Beyonce feeling slightly disrespected in the industry and being wonderfully and beautiful made like everyone else is but the assumed roles women are supposed to play in modern day society.

"We teach girls to shrink themselves...

Antonio Berardi X Fall 14

Antonio Berardi

Fell in love, thought I'd share some of his Fall 2014 collection. Enjoy.

Berardi is known for his "sensual, figure-hugging dresses" and a "striking, classical, dressed-up" style featuring "advanced fabrics and manufacturing techniques."[1] He has named music, independent film, post-modern art, Catholic symbolism, Italian art and culture, urban street style, lingerie, and the female form as his design influences.

Live GOLD in 2014

Ah, a new year. What's next?

Mission: Get better and live GOLD.

Golden Fashion Goddesses

Girl Crush

The past two weeks have been Tika Sumpter on fire, ohh and Lupita... we will get to that. I love both of these beautiful brown skin goddesses.

Just finding out Tika is from my hometown of Queens and has been in the business forever! She has looks and personality. I love. Check out some fashionable looks of Tika Sumpter.

My other favorite is actress and Yale alumni Lupita Nyong'o. Budding, fresh and effortless style.
She was born in Mexico and is of Kenyan descent. The pictures say the rest...


Did you spot these similar fashion snapshots between Beyonce and Solange?

Here are the outfit details:

I love both colorful on season looks! What do you think?


Style X S/S X Iconic

Headed into the fall my mind is already set on S/S 2014 trends. Since I've been working on my own Spring/ Summer line for #NikGoldDesigns it's rejuvenating to see how my collection fits into the future view of style as far as colors, patterns and the variation of textures.

My first feature is Iconic Inanity which is a explosive sighting of heavily influenced Ankara cloth pieces along with striking lines and feminine silhouettes. View some runway snap shots below.


Personal X Smile X Progress

Stay safe X I love you!

These past couple of months have taught me a lot about myself than ever before.

 Seeing myself recover from obstacles and use them as stepping stones. Catching myself becoming content and immediately turning the fire up based on my goals and knowing anything you WANT you can ascertain. 

Now comes the productive winter for a rewarding summer. Staying busy progressive because I promised someone very special to me and to myself I'll be in a different place by next summer. Just wait on it! Aimed with a 2nd job, a great support system and a mind full of ideas and plans everyday I wake up with a better view of life.

***Instead of writing a list of what's wrong with life focus on the good and live life like it's golden because it certainly isn't promised.***

Take a moment out to read a poem I wrote today.

The twist

Vibrating lesions toss my body one way then another
The beauty of authenticity bares my soul willingly
While tender fascinating kisses are planted where deep bruises once laid
Warm tears of patience and appreciation trickle down my left cheek effortlessly
Never has a care burn so deep and shine so bright
Blinded by the dedication and passion
I tilt my crown to the sun and praise the mountains and valleys of the earth
My pounding rigorous breathe escapes in whispers of wonder
And finally, I own the white engrossing mist of consciousness
