Hi beauties! I think it’s safe to say that I’ve finally FULLY recovered from NYFW 2017. Wow, the experience was truly amazing, and it makes me see that I’m really growing as a blogger. Being able to see all of these inspiring shows are humbling – which is why I’m always so excited to share my experiences with you guys.
Hi guys! The hot weather is upon us, and light summer colors are a must. For me, I like to mix my warm colors with a little bit of edge. Since I normally a fall/winter type of girl, it helps to incorporate different trends within my look to ease my comfort. I decided to take on the city with this casual, simple but edgy look. I find that a mix of trends that you normally wouldn’t purchase can be just the thing you need to add something new to your wardrobe.
Hi beauties! I hope you’re enjoying your three-day weekend for Memorial Day. I love it when the weather finally breaks because you just feel such good vibes. It’s like everyone has suffered through the cold and wind together, so when it’s finally nice outside we appreciate it so much more. Well this weekend has definitely been filled with laughs, good food and bright colors! Check out my comfy look that kept me just right this weekend.
After the crazy snow storm in NY, the weather broke and we got a little bit of sunlight to peek through! With it being NYFW, there’s a lot of excitement in the city this weekend and it truly motivates me to go harder in my career. Honestly, one of my dreams is to be a part of NYFW, and I’m not letting go of that goal until it happens! But for now, I have to continue to push and have faith. So I went out to shoot in East Village with my roomie Mya, and we found so much amazing wall art that it was almost impossible to choose!
As if 2017 isn’t flying by already, I can’t believe that Valentine’s Day is a week and a half away! Guys, time is flying so I hope you’ve been using your time wisely. For this occasion, yeah it’s cute to have a bae and do cute couple-y things, BUT it’s also pretty fun just dressing up with your girls and having a reason to overly wear the colors red and pink. So, whether you’re single this year or have plans on hanging with your significant other, there are a ton of fun looks that you could try to spice up cupid’s day this year!
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!
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.
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!
This weekend I really put my fears aside, and ventured out into the city alone. Now, I love doing things alone. I’m the type of person who enjoys spending time by myself and being able to work on/do things that I love. But I will say that this was my first weekend going to an event in the city by myself without my roommate(s). I survived, and I realized that there are some things you’re going to have to do alone. You shouldn’t be scared to take the risk. It’s all about character building and getting to know yourself.
Well, I found my way to the Aaliyah Jay Meet and Greet in Harlem, NY! She held a back-to-school event for all of her supporters at the The Vanity Box Boutique.
