Not So Mellow Yellow

  As many of us know, finding shoes for women with larger shoe sizes is truly a pain. There are moments I find multiple pairs of shoes in my size that are so bomb yet my bank account balance is looking back at me like, "Yeah right girl, try again next month." Then there are moments I can't find any shoes to save my life! Its like I have all of these outfits in my head with the same old shoes in rotation. It’s a frustrating feeling that has been with me since my love of shoes was ignited. I love all types of footwear and I love blogging but, when those two major issues of no shoes and no money...

Nice Girl, Own Rules.

I would describe myself as a nice girl, however I've always made my own rules and it hasn’t been easy. When a woman knows what she wants, she's labeled a diva, difficult, and of course a bitch. Even from the people closest to us, having opinions on how we should or shouldn’t conduct our lives because of our biology. When did it become unacceptable for a woman to identify what she wants and go after it with such an intensity that only she knows might possibly work in her favor? When did women become afraid of going after such desires when we’ve fought so hard to prove ourselves time and again of our equality? I thought we've come so far from...

Color Blocked

I  remember the first time I discovered color blocking which believe it or not I actually have to give our favorite celebrity Kim Kardashian credit for introducing my eyes to this color play. You may be thinking even back then I was super late and that Kim K. was definitely not the first to do it but, this is my story! *inserts laughing emoji* When I saw how colors were mixed and matched like deep purples and tangerines, I absolutely fell in love and was low key obsessed. Like everything else in fashion, color blocking has once again arrived for a visit. My favorite part this time around is that it’s a winter trend using bright pops of color. I couldn’t be...

Vinyl Perspective

Don't give into fear and self doubt. Instead of them working against you, force them to work for you. Recently I volunteered for a project I've never done in my life. I've been trained to do all these things during school and interning but never have I ever taken on a solo project. Imagine my nerves once it actually set in! Like, who am I to ever sign up for such a task? So many fears and self doubts came to play. Not only did they wreak havoc on my mind but also on my body. I am fighting a severe cold as I type due to a week of stress and lack of sleep. I began to become agitated, frustrated...
