Valentines Day 2017

February 14, 2017

 

Here we are at another Valentines Day or as I like to call it, V DAY. This is my second time featuring the “holiday” here online and so far I actually enjoy celebrating it on the blog. I can’t too much say the same in my personal life lol. It will be just another day but I’ll be posting V DAY themed pics on my instagram. Just like last year, my message is the same: Get to know yourself, take yourself out on a date, be madly in LOVE with YOU. Because I gotta tell ya, if you don’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else? When you take the time to love yourself, it sets the bar for everything. You’ll know when not to accept just ANYTHING from any mojo and will know your worth and know what you offer and bring to the table. As a matter of fact, you just might BE the table. Thanks for tuning in and I hope you’ve enjoyed. I’ll see you on the next post!

3 ways to wear double breasted blazer

February 5, 2017

-Oversized-

I love a good oversized piece that gives me drama. When I say drama, I mean swinging’ from left to right as I’m walking. It just does something to your spirit, you feel so important. It can be used as a jacket, a piece for warmth and overall sophistication.

-Shirtless-

When the weather calls, I find it so chic to rock a double breasted blazer without a shirt underneath. For me, traditionally wearing a button up underneath gets a little boring after a while so I like to spice things up.

-With a Tee-

Wearing it with a nice, printed t-shirt is always a classic move. It gives you some comfort and the option to easily switch out the shirt for another.

 WHAT I’M WEARING:

Look 1: Blazer-Thrifted

Look 2: Blazer-Forever 21

Look 3: Blazer-Zara

Tuxedo Tailcoat

Well, here we are. It’s 2017 and this is my first post of the year! Im very excited for the new year ahead and remain positive and optimistic despite the recent backwardness this country could be facing. I don’t want to get all political on today’s post but I will say when we come together in numbers we are a threat! Dr. Roland Martin said that once we realize that poor education is poor education, we must all fight TOGETHER to change and affect our country.

     This is my first time wearing a tuxedo tailcoat. I’ve seen them before but never gave it much thought. Of course we always see them in a very formal setting but if Zara is selling them you better believe most guys are rocking this with a street style, urban look and that’s just what I decided to do. The lapels are satin and like most tailcoat tuxedos, it’s fitted which is something I can always appreciate. The shoes were also a pickup from Zara. Their having an AMAZING end of the season sale so if you haven’t already, head over and check it out. I’ve placed the link to today’s items below. You’ll be sure to find SOMETHING you like for the remainder of the winter season. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your new year is off to a fantastic and productive start. See you on the next post.

Top 10 moments in 2016

December 31, 2016

I guess this is the part where I brag about my accomplishments of 2016. Well, I guess I’ll “brag” on then. But on a serious note it’s important to count your blessings/accomplishments. Everything I do on the blog is all in the sake to inspire and uplift. A lot comes from personal goals that I set and I’m just proud of myself. I can only go higher. Here are my top 10 best moments of 2016. I hope you enjoy and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

10.

I met a beautiful human being by the name of Jei Monroe in July of this year. This past Summer, I hit a depressive state and I felt very lonely. I decided to reach out and our friendship grew quickly in just 5 months! We clicked instantly. We then went on to collaborate together for our online content and travel to N.Y.C. She has inspired me to be a better person with my goals and I can’t wait to see her next endeavors as she moves to New York City. I’m truly going to miss her. But I’ll probably be bugging her with pop ups to N.Y.C here and there. Can you say no hotel fees? Lol.
