OOTD: Simple Summer

By Conesha Knowles

Hello Beautiful,

Summer is officially here and it’s the perfect reason to let loose and have fun!

My idea of Summer fun is being surrounded by the water. Although I’m already surrounded by the water, just by living on an island, when I say surrounded by water I want ever spare moment I have to be spent on a beach.

The water calms me on one hand and ignites my wanderlust spirit on the other. I’ve even been considering working on a boat for a year, travelling the world, making some money and blogging about! If the opportunity comes I’ll take it, hands down!

So, I spent my first Sunday of Summer by the water, soaking up the sun and eating a daiquiri to cool down.

Let me just admit that I missed The White Party last year…but I had a good reason!

I had to travel to Rio for work to cover the 2016 Summer Olympics, but when the photos started to hit the internet of people partying, networking and straight chilling at the luxury event, I wanted to immediately hop a flight and head back home!

I actually had the pleasure of attending the first annual event in 2015  which was so chic, so classy and so sophisticated that I now keep my neck craned in anticipation for that winter white “coming soon” poster each year.  Read more >>

2017 ALIV Bahamian Icon Awards

By Conesha Knowles

Its about 10:35pm Saturday, June 17th and my heels aren't as forgiving as they were two hours ago as I tipped across the street from the Melia Nassau Beach hotel to my car.

The interesting thing is... as long as I was in the hotel foyer and ballroom amongst so many Bahamian icons (some nominated, some not nominated) I didn't feel any pain! The energy was captivating, the excitement was high and the fashion...oh baby... the fashion was ICONIC!
