Throw Back Thursday

It’s been a minute and a half and so much has happened since the last time I posted anything (yes I am ashamed to admit that I have been an absent blogger)! But not to fret, absent – in my sphere (the world that exists in my mind alone) – does not mean non-existent. Just…

Hey I’m Yolanda Soginga, I Am an Actress.

Yes! I said it. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine those words would be coming out of my mouth. But three months down the line, I have three films to brag about. It was the most unexpected blessing I had ever received. The epitome of “When God shows up, he shows off”….

What now?’ That special, but extremely sad date in history is undoubtedly one…

Jills and Jacks of all Trade

As always, the world was in a chaotic tremor when Beyoncé was awarded as this year’s CFDA Fashion Icon at the awards ceremony held in New York City. In true Queen Bey style, the winner wasn’t announced until the very last moment when Diane Von Furstenberg ‘name-dropped’ her IVY Park line with Top Shop in…
