Hey Dreamers, so in my recent weeks I have changed gears and taken some risk in order to pursue my passions.
This happens about once a year where I talk myself in and out of risk. Quite frankly, I’m often indecisive and like most I fear the unknown and even worst failure. But you already failed if you never tried and you must give yourself time to learn and grow.
With that being said, I’ll just spit it out now and honestly it’s very obvious. My passion that I’m going to stick with is Real Estate and Fashion. These two subjects have always been in my immediate realm of interest. I believe there’s a way to tie the two together and not to mention, dressing a house up is called “interior design” which I also love. So in strolling undeveloped neighborhood and assessing future values before work I took a couple photos in the rawness.
Featured in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. There is so much potential; in less than a mile you have a mix range of houses that are historic, unique, spacious and worth close to a million dollars easily. There’s plenty where that came from!
The area is very sectioned off where a few blocks are completely impoverished and a step to the right side of the tracks can put you in an affluent neighborhood.
I currently reside in Chestnut Hill, which is a stone’s throw from these houses. If you seen my last video and the houses I filmed, are in walking distance from where im standing now.
Now if we can change gears a bit to inquire on the details of my outfit…
Yes, I know you’re wondering. Keep reading for the scoop.
Lashes- Kiss so whispy
Lippie- Burts Bees
Beaded bracelet- Tiffany’s
Pants- Banana Republic
Shoes- Club Monaco
Slingback Shoes- Club Monaco
My outfit was really centered around wearing these shoes, I kept everything in my apparel clean and let the slingback really shine. I did have a scarf to knock the chill off from this windy fall weather but it didn’t photograph as good as I wanted, so I chucked it from the shot. What do you think?
Please share you passions in the comment section and if you have more than one, talk about how you plan to tie those passions together or what it would take to settle on one.

Hey Dreamers, ready for some fall fashion and a pinch of dreamy real estate? Keep reading for your fall fixx.
I was really basking in the wondrous fall climates yesterday; and since I didn’t have to break a sweat I decided to do a little shooting in my most complimented fall get up. Which is pretty simple honestly, it’s all about layering. I often always am guilty on layering because some times “more is more” and it just comes together so effortlessly. Not to mention for those of you who get a little chilly, there are transitional pieces in the outfit to add in additional layer of warmth.
The neighborhood and sunlight was absolutely beautiful yesterday. In my opinion was a truly perfect fall day. All the trees and leaves haven’t yet turned colors yet but that’s fine as I love greenery above all else.
Lashes- Kiss (So Wispy)
Fedora- Urban Outfitters
Khaki dress shirt- Abercrombie & Fitch
Embellished Boots- Target
*Full disclaimer, that this outfit was purchased some time ago and have been in my favorites since last year, so I don’t know for sure that the items are still available for purchase. I’ll make sure to purchase items in season to debut for you guys.
Thanks for reading, scroll down for a little lusty real estate below in my video.
Quote of the day
“No one is you, And that is your power!”
Ready to Go Native?
As the seasons change, so does our scents. Those warm cozy scents that excite you and wraps you up like a warm blanket. Even though perspiration levels should be low, for some of us. Our deodorants have kicked it up a notch to cement itself in our morning routine. Native has a great line up this season, in it’s seasonal fall pack you’ll get excited about October all over again. With amazing scents that make you feel nostalgic but all good feelings because none of the bad stuff listed in ingredients.
Lemon Zest and Pomegranate, Lilac and White Tea, Orange and Honeysuckle.
I was a bit disappointed that they did not include the Pumpkin Spice Latte scent in this line up, given that pumpkin is the epitome of fall. But the other scents hold their own and Lilac and White Tea is what I’m currently sporting and my new favorite.
Down to the facts- Native deodorant does not contain any harmful ingredients, you can expect their products to be free of Aluminum, Talc, Parabens and phthalates.
When I stumbled upon Native I was seeking a natural deodorant. Why? What’s the difference between natural and “regular” deodorant?
In my experience I was led to believe that deodorant is all the same and that my body goes through changes and it was my own body’s fault that I was having the issues that I experienced. Those issues included burnt underarms, the skin was so much darker than the rest of my body. I was embarrassed and I lost confidence, I never wore anything sleeveless and I wouldn’t even think about taking pictures with arms up to expose the dark skin. I had no idea where this was coming from but I continued using my regular deodorant.
Other issues included, really bad body odor and abnormal amounts of perspiration. I smelled horribly once my deodorant went flat, my sister of course had the courtesy to tell me but I knew that the smell coming from my underarms was something foul.
I often had to just wash my underarms with a washcloth and soap 2-3x a day!
Yes you read that correctly. The perfuse sweating was that similar to an athlete, I’m normally on the warmer side and uncomfortable in hot or warm temperatures because I do tend to sweat. But the pit stains were immense, I started to avoid white shirts and focused on the underarms when doing laundry unless I just wanted to toss the shirt.
All of that changed with Native, this company completely changed my Ph balance. I could go the whole day without applying deodorant and not smell terrible. My sweating died down and when I do tend to apply deodorant in the morning it last me all day. I can’t thank them enough and I converted for life.
Quote of the day
Hello Dreamers, and welcome back. I’ve been thinking of treating myself lately or letting someone do it for me. I’ve been in the market for a new piece of jewelry and who better than the jeweler who coined their own color blue, who Audrey Hepburn couldn’t get enough of and what every guys apology should be followed up with? Yes, you guessed it; Tiffany & Co.
Now I know what you’re thinking and you’re going to ask me, well “Kionna is it your birthday?” “You getting engaged?” (God I hope so). “Girl you got that promotion?” umm no. But nevertheless it never hurts to create a goal. For when you reach those special occasion benchmarks in life, you already a step ahead and have the perfect gift in mind.
With a place so Magnifique as the French would say, it’s hard to narrow down your options. I do of course have my favorites and every day wearables and those special pieces I lust after. Keep reading for pics and specs.
The keys are a great purchase, you won’t be saving these necklaces for a special occasion. Throw it on to jazz up your Tees, dresses or pose for a selfie. I know you ladies love that. These keys won’t break the bank, so treat yourself and splurge or complain to your man that this is what he needs to get to make up for upsetting you. I’m sure we can get creative and throw a laundry list of examples.
The regular key measures out 2” long
The mini key measures out 1” long
Although it’s difficult to layer the 2” necklace, you honestly won’t need to as it fills out the cleavage line perfectly and gives that touch of glam.
I did remember the nail color in the main photos and its OPI Cony Island Cotton Candy for those of you looking for the perfect nude nail.
Here’s a shot of the bracelet and I want to you all to know how difficult this shot was, due to my OCD. The back of the heart charm is not colored with the Tiffany blue, it is actually sterling silver with “Return to Tiffany & Co New York”
Finally, for my crush of the day. The Tiffany & Co. famous solitaire engagement ring in the Tiffany setting, yellow gold of course for me. It’s so flattering, so classic, extremely elegant, beyond feminine and essential to ring finger happiness.
Later Dreamers, here’s our quote of the day.
