Yesterday my best friend of 27 years (yes, we go waaaaay back) texted these pics of her with the Time Out Mag I sent her in the mail. She seems more excited that I did! I think it’s cuz she thinks that once I hit it big time, she will quit her job and become my assistant. But I’ve already fired her. Ha!

And one more pic from the mag. In my haste to turn to page 23, I didn’t even know I was on the Table of Contents page until 3 days later. I’m a mess! 

P.S.- I just checked the rest of the mag to make sure I didn’t miss anthing else!

Rama Diouf on the cover of FASHIZBLACK Magazine MARCH/APRIL 2012‏  
shot by Luc Lamotte (directed by Paola Audrey Ndengue & with the help of makeup artist Yannick Larcher and Ms Sonee who did the hair).

FASHIZBLACK, former France’s #1 online magazine, successfully launched its first ever printed magazine in January 2012. & it is fast becoming the fashion guide for the urban, young and smart black Diaspora. Available both in french and english, with up-to-date editorials, consistent african fashion insights, shopping lists, beauty tips and cultural reviews, the Paris-based fashion magazine provides everything you need for a very chic and trendy spring !

This weekend I received a printed copy of my Time Out NY Magazine feature in the mail. I was so surprised that I got the whole page to myself!!! Usually they create a collage of all the people they feature and make it a 2 page spread. But they only featured me, which was odd but wow! I’m loving it! Forever excited and grateful.

Now I have to run and buy like 5 copies and send them to my family and frame this one!

Found this while searching “Nakimuli” tags on tumblr. We are international! Dope.

kerry washington doesn’t make too much noise in hollywood. (which, honestly, can be a good thing.) but i would definitely put her on my top best dressed celebs list. 98% she is always on point. the silent killer. lol love her.

though my halloween night was kind a bust (long story), i am happy with the way my costume turned out.

                  

i was a circus ring master. and of course i made my costume. (my new obession- leotards. u may see them pop up in naKIMuli soon. lol)

i was featured in essence mag’s street style gallery. you can see my pic + other dope costumes here:

Street Style: Monster’s Ball

here i am with my girls in my showroom. rasheda, the devil, and tammi, the navy captain (i made her outfit too.)

we took like a million of these pics. lol

happy (late) halloween. :)

just when i think i am over twitter (social network anxiety kicking in), something dope happens to remind me why i am still on there. ghubar mag’s translator, tiffaniie, tweeted that we are in their newest issue that came out today! yeah! this is kinda a big deal people. :)

never heard of ghubar mag? well u must be living under a rock! (joking kiddos.) but they are a dope fashion web mag based in france. me + kelly are always drooling over their online issues so for them to acknowledge us with a 2 page spread is amazing!!! i am so grateful!

make sure to check out their newest issue today!
