Can I say that I am STILL high off of this EPIC camping adventure that occurred almost three weeks ago? Because I am. I've never been camping before. I've never been on a RV. I've never been to Sequoia National Park or Joshua Tree National Park. There were a lot of firsts on this trip and I wouldn't have wanted to experience them with any other group of people. So many good vibes, near death experiences and laughter. Follow me on this journey:

In LA, we picked up three RVs full of people. Three! There was a lot of risk taking involved with these RVs during the camping trip. Standing on top of this RV to get the perfect "Usie" was nothing compared to almost driving off a cliff and flying around inside during sudden stops and turns. #RIPToMeEverTakingRidingInARV #EverAgainInLife #ImOnlySerious #NextStopSequoiaNationalPark

Memo 176: Sweating the Denim Trend

To: All

Guess who's loving the denim trend this season? Me!



Let me explain. Denim can look good whether your pieces are from H&M or Gucci especially with the help of a good tailor. It's pretty amazing on tons of different body types and there are so many ways to incorporate the trend with all of the denim pieces that are available. 



I paired my denim pieces with a pair of H&M sweatpants and neutral accessories. I initially wanted to go for a completely all denim look but the color of my denim pieces neither complimented nor coordinated with each other. They just didn't get along! 

Trend Tip: Pay attention to your denim colors when opting for an all denim look.

Blue and white stripes will make it alright!
Throw in some paisley and you might get a little hazy
Add shoes that shine bright whether day or night

Look out for my mixtape that's going to drop Summer 2015.
Anything sounds good over the right beat. Ask I Love Makonnen....
