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.

Keeping it $100

  Hey guys. I was browsing YouTube the other day, like we all often do. One particular video title stood out. Lisa ala Mode posted a video titled “I did all my Christmas shopping for $100? What!   I clicked so fast into that video. She shopped for her family (I’m assuming Immediate) at JC Penny’s. Now, I know JCPenny’s is a dope department store with pretty reasonable prices, but still I was amazed. The gifts …

Grass for dinner! Surviving being a vegetarian at gatherings.

      If you know me, you know I like to eat a lot. This does not include limiting myself to only large heap of salads.  Going to a gathering when you are the only one not eating meat can be a pain. To be honest, it can suck if you are depending on that being stomach savior for the day. It is uncomfortable.  Some people even automatically assume that you are starving yourself. …

Chic but effortless

I had no intentions of adding yet another coat to my collection (For Fall) this year. I’ve been eyeing this trench coat for a good while. I believe since even last year, however It was on the pricy $ide. Not only that but I did not want anything so high-maintenance like suede. (Dry Cleaners) Once I saw that Banana Republic had their friends and family sale, I hopped over to Rockefeller Center. No exclusion equals …
