I first discovered interior designer and furniture designer Alain Michel Fagnidi a couple of years ago on Myspace and immediately fell in love with his work. Fagnidi merges contemporary styled pieces with his West African heritage to create high-end luxury furniture and home accessories. The company is based in Montreal and New York and has been featured at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC.

Feeling like everything going wrong/Take a step back and edit yourself/There’s a hero in you waitin’ to happen/
Make the choice to take a chance and save yourself/You gotta let go of your insecurity/Explore the passion in your possibilities/You will find love and no love can be higher than this ~ Higher Than This by Ledisi
I had to take a brief hiatus from blogging to deal with “life”. But I’m back. Did you miss me? Yesterday, when I got back in town, I was going through my ginormous stack of mail and came across a letter from Harrington College of Design. I opened it up and learned that it was a letter of acceptance into the interior design program. Yay, I am officially re-enrolled in school. That is one thing I can scratch off my 2010 Goals List. Enroll in school. Check. Now all I have to do is find a new job and relocate to Chicago in time for the fall semester, which begins in September. *wall slide* May the force be with me. A few weeks ago, I was talking to my grandmother about my plans to go back to school. Like always, when we have one of our “talks” she offered words of encouragement, advice and pearls of wisdom. Unfortunately, that was the very last conversation I had with my dear sweet grandmother. A week ago she unexpectedly passed away. Even though I am heart-broken over her untimely death, I don’t have time to mope around and be sad about it. On the contrary, I have to muster up the strength and tenacity to work twice as hard to make her proud of me. After all, my word is my bond. I can’t stop, won’t stop. So Grandma, if you’re listening, I want to let you know that I dedicate my grind to you. May you Rest in Peace. XOXO “Love! Can’t nobody love me like you do/So I gotta tell the world that/You are in everything that I do”
Good-bye to the game/ all the spoils, the adreneline rush/Your blood boils you in a spot knowing cops could rush/
And you in a drop your so easy to touch/No two days are alike/Except the first and fifteenth pretty much ~ December 4th by Jay-Z
I know I’m a little late but I just discovered that Domino Magazine has gone out of business. Oh Em Gee!!!! That was one of my FAVORITE interior design magazines. Say it ain’t so. *wall slide* Conde Nast, how could you do this to me? Domino Magazine gave me life. It was packed with information on all things I love, interior design, furniture, shopping, travel, and food. The March issue was the mag’s FINAL issue and I didn’t even get a copy. Please join me in a brief moment of silence for my beloved Dominio Magazine. *cue Jay-Z* “If you can’t respect that your whole perspective is wack/Maybe you’ll love me when i fade to black.”
