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...

20 Something

Being a 20 something year old in 2017 is rough in so many aspects, especially in regards to finances.  According to Wells Fargo, a record breaking number of millennials are living with their parents, which in large part is due to debt and a job market that hasn’t returned to its pre-recession glory. If you’re “boujee on a budget”, like my good friend Victoria likes to call it, then you know how physically painful it is to see the most amazing items online and in your favorite clothing stores that are way out of your price range. I love fashion trends. I love the art of mixing and matching the latest styles, making them my own with a twist. I also love...

Baby Blue’s

To say these last few weeks have been stressful would be the least of my emotions. Worry is a silent killer, so silent, I didn't even realize how much it was wreaking havoc on my body, physically and emotionally. I've been worrying so much about my finances, career, and love life unknowingly worrying myself sick. Everyday is a battle but it is a process of realizing there is absolutely nothing we should be focused on more than the present. I'm realizing that I can't stress and worry about what's to come anymore because it's not productive and I rather spend my time on way more important things like enjoying life and focusing on my grind while being grateful of what I...

STAYCATION

About a year or so ago, I discovered Forever 21 began to carry select styles of wide women's footwear up to size 13 but the selections were very limited. Even though I'm not the biggest fan of the brand, I was excited for more affordable options! I have to give it to them for reasonable prices on trends that are here today and gone tomorrow. A friend of mind spotted these transparent slides online and less than 2 minutes after showing them to me, I was entering my credit card information! Being in sort of a slump the last few weeks, my mood more down than up, slides are the only shoes I want to wear. When I'm feeling down, heels are...
