from Ochre in New York


I am in my new and chic apartment in Seoul! Tonight as I was walking home, I had to thank God for such a wonderful apartment. I am truly grateful. For any Westerner who has ever had to look for an apartment in this city, well, I don’t have to tell YOU how difficult and frustrating that can be. For those of you who are contemplating finding that perfect place in this exciting but overpopulated city, snatch that place where you actually see real hardwood floors! You’ve been warned.
I have blond hardwood floors, off-white and new wallpaper (there are some incredibly vivid wallpaper designs in this town, you’ve been warned a second time) and glossy off-white closets with a built-in frigo and freezer. They are hidden. LOVE!!!

Since my place is small and sleek I just want to have clean lines, I want that my skin color and the color of my photographs be the only things that bring strong color to the table. I believe that I am at time in my life where I seek simplicity in just about everything that I encounter. Where is this coming from? I don’t know, but I’m going with it.

I am so focused on living well and wellness that I don’t even want to be distracted by a drinking glass. I bought some glasses that look similar to these courtesy of Ochre in NY and Lord help me to find a desk and chair this quietly bold here in Seoul. Amen.

I’m back in Seoul, South Korea, ladies and gents!

I don’t know how I’m going to do both, but I will try.
You will find me mostly on my other blog This Time in Seoul where I talk about design, culture, anything that I happen to find interesting in this wonderfully hectic city called Seoul.
I hope that you join me there as well, I will not abandon This Time Now, I just have to find another angle for it while I’m back in Seoul.
Any ideas?

Bisous a tous!

Shower me with love

I had the pleasure of visiting family in Northern Virginia last week and…drumroll… was given the master bedroom! Heaven! Thank you, Family! What’s so cool about the MB is that it has an incredible master bathroom! One thing (really three) that I will have in my future home are three incredible bathrooms, his, The Queen’s (yours truly), and honored guests. The walk-in shower is simply lovely, so inviting and above all, has great lighting. What does all of this mean? I slept like a baby and ran enjoyed sleeping in a real bed again: HEAVEN.
Here are some showers that I particularly enjoyed via Living, etc

Enjoy.

All's well that ends well!

Please visit your local barbershop. If you’re lucky like me, you will witness true artistry, feel a sense of community and participate in some good ole’ fashioned flirting. You know the kind that’s innocent with just a dash of mischievousness. That’s how I like it.

A special thanks to Ronnie of Ronnie’s Professional Cutz located on 711 London Street in Portsmouth, VA. 23704
You all made my day!

LOVE. THIS. LOOK.

LOVE. THIS. LOOK.

As a child I would part my hair in the middle, tie it either in a bun or two thick pigtails and grab one of my mother’s scarves and play “gypsy queen” or Queen Felicia (not confined to an Eastern European location). I love everything that scarves represent: mystery, versatility, playfulness and warmth.
These looks are a part of outlook on design. Design is everything and everywhere.

Never can say goodbye. Michael Jackson returns home.

I love this photo of him, so handsome, so beautiful.

I cannot believe that Michael Jackson’s life has ended today, but it has and we are left with a legacy of artistry beyond compare. I know that his life lately has resembled some horrible circus but no one has created incredibly awe-inspiring music. I remember standing in front of the television with bated breath, my mother, brother and step father standing in awe in front of the television to watch someone sing, dance, transcend like no other musical artist before! Everyone talked about that performance in school, at the post office, grocery store, EVERYWHERE. I still watch old videos of his and still get chills. He was the ultimate entertainer.

May Michael Jackson finally get the peace he deserves.

and H is for Happy
