Be Yourself and Mix Prints



Happy Friday! I had an extremely chaotic past two weeks so I’m glad to be at the weekend– peep my smile. Though it’s been a whirlwind of a week, well 2 weeks, I’ve learned a very important lesson: Be yourself.

And anyone who knows me knows that I love mixing prints! There’s nothing that screams TANIQUA more than wearing several different prints at the same time. I just can’t help myself.

It’s official. Summer sixteen is on deck! I can already tell that this summer is going to be full of day parties, festivals, concerts, travel with the girls and good old fashion fish frys (or fries, I really don’t know how that works). If any of these are on your to-do list than you’ll probably be having an equally amazing summer. But there is no use in having an amazing summer if your style doesn’t match.

Meet Bené: A Brand Dedicated to Empowering Women Worldwide


Before you judge me, I’m aware that we are rolling into summer and I’m wearing a turtleneck. But I had to share with you all what is easily the most encouraging piece that I have in my closet.

Through the purchase of this scarf, I was able to help provide education for girls in Ghana. As a young Liberian-American who works to help educate my local Liberian community, it was important to me to support a cause that helped empower the women of Africa. I am dedicated to empowering women. So, as  summer springs, I found it necessary to spotlight a brand that was doing so: Bené.
