Book Stamp – The Alchemist

The Alchemist

Whenever I am heading on a trip, I always bring a book along with me. A couple weeks ago I explored Zürich, and my book of choice was “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. The Alchemist was originally written in 1988 and is still an international bestseller being translated into over 70 languages. Many people claim that after reading this book their outlook on life truly changed and I can agree wholehearted. “We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, […]

A Perfect Weekend In Zürich

I was lucky enough to spend my 30th birthday doing what I love the most, exploring a new city! Even better I was able to spend my birthday with my favorite person, my mum, she is my best travel partner. Clearly by the title of this post, you know that I flew to Zürich, Switzerland. Zürich sits right by a lake (Lake Zürich) with a backdrop of the Swiss Alps, making it a perfect fairytale city. Add in the sparkle of the Christmas lights all around the city and snow and it was the definition of the perfect winter getaway. […]

Hyde - Ebony & Iron

This past month, I have been searching for ways to help me stay focused. I am a busy woman with a full-time job, attending graduate school, and running a blog; so I have to make sure I am prioritizing my time and not getting distracted. What I have discovered is that every time I look at the time on my iPhone, I also get sucked into looking at some app on my phone (Instagram, LinkedIn, or the endless Google search). This pesky little habit eats up precious minutes of my day resulting in at least an hour of being unproductive. […]

How I Fixed My Repetitive Bad Morning


A couple weeks ago I found an article written by Pamela Johnston, which I found quite interesting “5 Things You Already Did Wrong Before 9 am.” Now considering I have already been at work for two hours by 9am, a lot could have already gone wrong by this hour of the morning. The article spoke about how we already start our day wrong before we literally get out of bed!  Click Here To Read Her Article     Number three struck a cord. “Don’t wake up to a to-do list.” As you can imagine having a full time career, going to school […]

H&M And Levi Stopping Landfill Pile Ups

Have you ever looked deep in your closet and pulled out an item and thought to yourself, “Why did I buy this?” This article most likely still has the tags on it and you have never worn it. I can admit I am guilty as charged! Now the question is: what can you actually do with this item, which you basically loathe and cannot bare to look at anymore? Do you give it to a friend, donate it to a charity shop, try to sell it, or do you simply throw it away? Well apparently the last option is typically […]

Universal Standard x Let’s Talk Live DC

I had the awesome pleasure of modeling for Universal Standard this past Friday on Let’s Talk Live DC! Universal Standard is a size inclusive brand that ranges from size 10-28. Their goal is to design beautiful, quality, modern, elevated essentials for women. Quite frankly can we say amen to them, it has taken years for women who have curves to get chic clothing! Before you say “Lindsey, you are not plus size!!!” I have worked as a plus size model for years in New York and I am a size 10. Size 10, always seems to get forgotten in the […]

Romantic Details with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg

The first trend from my Fall 2017 collaboration with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg was Comfy Cozy. Those looks were the perfect blend of being fashion forward while still having the comfort of wearing your favorite pair of sweatpants. The next trend we are diving into is romantic details.  The first look is a soft romantic feel created by adding sleeve details, simple jewelry, and keeping the color palette consistent. Typically I am not a pink girl, but this look called my name.The vest by Crosby is an absolute must! A firm belief of mine is if you layer a vest on […]

Comfy Cozy with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg

  Most people in the world think of January as the start to the New Year, and they would be right in all aspects except for fashion. September, is the month when Fashion Week kicks off and all the big fashion magazines put out their largest issue proclaiming what every woman needs. For me, that equates to two New Year’s one for the calendar and one for fashion. This year however, I did have to move my Fashion New Year because the weather was still scorching hot in September. I can’t think about bringing out my favorite leather coat in […]
