Last weekend, I was grateful enough to attend the GirlBoss Rally in Los Angeles, hosted by the girlboss herself, Sophia Amoruso. If you aren’t familiar with Sophia, she’s the the founder of Nasty Gal and the creator of #GirlBoss, the best book ever turned into a community for women entrepreneurs all over. At the rally, I learned so much and took away so many gems that will definitely last me a lifetime. There were so many notes I wrote down from different panels that really made me think about my life and how far I’ve come. Even though I’ve come a long way, there’s still so much I want to accomplish!
This past weekend has been above and beyond…nothing short of amazing — Mya and I ventured out and really tapped into our creative energies. When it freezing outside it can be easy to be lazy and unproductive, but we fought against it and persevered! With work and everything else going on, it’s been hard for me to keep on track with my blog schedule, but I’m back and I can’t wait to end this year with a bang with you guys!
So I was going to do another fashion post, but I was like NOPE. I wanted to do something more personable! Sometimes when you’re blogging you always forget to let people in to get to know you. I always share with you guys my experiences and my reflections, but it’s time to have some fun.
Yesterday, I attended a private influencer event to celebrate the launch of the new Puma Vikky Platform shoes at DSW hosted by Bloglovin’. I had so much fun meeting other bloggers and influencers here in New York. When I walked through the door the ambiance was full of life and chic-ness. They had a photo booth of course, so I had to snap a pic! I also snapped photos of my own to be able to share with you guys my experience, in hopes that it gets you just as excited for this launch as I was!
There’s so much more to life than what’s in front of you now…is what I’m trying to train myself to say everyday. The journey is made up of everything you’ve been through, everything you’ve survived and everything you’ve lived to tell. Over the past week, I’ve really thought about how far I’ve come as a person, as a woman…and I must say, I’m not completely where I want to be yet, but man am I really getting there! To become whole mentally, spiritually and physically is no easy task — it’s all about getting to know yourself, knowing your worth…and most times not taking no for an answer, especially in the situations where you know you deserve it all and then some.
This past weekend I went to Central Park with my roomie/friend Mya for a picnic with a few of her co-workers. This was my first time going to Central Park, and let me just say it looks exactly the way it’s displayed in the movies. It gives you fun, romantic vibes…especially with it being fall. There were so many people out enjoying the wonderful weather we had in NY. The weather didn’t last long FYI. Shortly after the beautiful 70 degree day there was a thunderstorm…but that’s neither here nor there.
I was able to capture the beauty a little bit, along with my picnic attire.
Nothing gets me more excited than new products! I was recently sent the new Clarisonic Mia 2 Device, and I fell in love with the product instantly. I’ve been wanting a Clarisonic device for quite some time now, so I was absolutely elated when they sent me one in the mail. I received the device, deep pore daily cleanser along with a clay mask that you can use 1-2 times a week. I’ve been using the products for about 3 weeks now, so I feel like I can finally give my review about it!
It’s been officially three months since moving to New York! This time is literally flying by, and I couldn’t let it continue without heading to Chicago to see my family and friends. Although I wasn’t able to do and see everyone that I wanted to, it was still nice being home. There’s nothing like being surrounded by genuine love and laughs. Completely warms my heart. On top of that, I was able to have quality cuddle time with our new pup, Supreme. I snapped a few moments! I hope you guys enjoy.
Guys! I can’t believe I missed a week of blogging — it’s been pretty hectic my way, as I am constantly brainstorming new content to give you all. Being a blogger always is a constant battle between quality and quantity. Sure, I can give you content every week, but will it be 100%? I always want to make sure it is, so I’m back and I’m better with some new fashion looks that I hope will brighten your day!
Well, fashion week has taken New York by storm, and to be completely honest I couldn’t wait to be immersed in all of the festivities! I went to the Essence Magazine Street Style Block Party and explored the Tommy Pier (check my next post for details on those events). Since I love fall fashion, I had to pick an outfit that showed off a fall look, while keeping the weather in mind. Can you guys believe that it’s 90 degrees in September? I’m seriously so over it.
