Hi, I'm Trina . I have always had interest in fashion, cuisine, and of course reading. My cousin will certainly force me to watch all the cooking shows that were on TV. She is a chef and a real DIY kind of gal. Now I'm glued to the art of cooking, although I am not anybody's chef! My love of travel came much later when my friend, Carlotta reintroduced me to it. She travels as often as one will brush their teeth! It is a treat to have soaps, handmade jewelry, and apparel from all over the world! Cultural awareness goes without saying. Ten facts about me. 1. I am super spontaneous. This is a curse and a blessing. 2. Like most girls, I am obsessed with shoes. I even have a whole room full of them. 3. I've been a vegetarian for a very long time, but I'm always surprised to see the whole meat vs non meat debate. Eat what you want. Respect me as I do the same. 4. .In fourth grade"my teacher' suggested I become a writer. She was the first teacher to do so, but not the last! 5. I majored in creative writing in high school. Listening to other people talk about how hard it is, is how I strayed away. (Do not listen to people killing your dreams) 6. I am obsessed with hot sauces, the hotter the better. Although, I admit some have recently almost took me out. (Can I have some water, some soy milk?) 7. I secretly wish I can clone my cat, and everything else I love. 8. I like cooking, but did not start until I was 20. 9. I rarely make announcements, most people figure out what happened later. 10.. My grandma had/has an incredible fashion sense. I absolutely played with her cosmetics, costume jewelry, shoes, and everything from a young age. She had got a magazine subscription to "YM" from fourth grade.! The magazine was geared towards high students, but I certainly gained some valuable knowledge from that.

Vegan snacks to pick up at TJ’s

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on  a long ride and been starved. I knew I had to change that up when I flew how many miles from NY to Korea last year. When I woke up after my nap my stomach was not happy. (In my defense,it was my first super long flight)  Starved.  My plane ride going back to JFK  was much easier. It was snacks I could eat, however …

“Stop wearing shorts after the age of 35” Lies that Society tells us

At some point, We all saw the magazine articles telling us what a woman should not wear over the age of 35. Truth is, I believe that there should be less trips to Fashion Nova and trendy Forever 21, based on quality, but not solely based on the clothing selection. (Older usually means more money and more choices) You know what I mean. Y’all take those lists with a grain of salt. You know what …

The high and the “Low”

If i’m being honest, this day was the first day that heels touched my feet outside of the home., since February. I missed wearing my heels, even if in short doses.  I like nice things, but if I know I could get them at a discount, yes i’m all in. Guys, usually you can always get it a discount. I mixed my “low” Asos dress with my”high” Ferragamo’s heels from Nordstrom Rack. I had these …
