Cardi B Birthday Bash 2k17!! 


Looking like I caught a lick….

Cardi! Cardi! Aye…say lil bih you can’t fudge with me if you wanted to, these expensive, these is red bottoms these be bloody shoesssssssss, and sure enough every woman was out in their best, if not bloody, expensive shoes to celebrate with Cardi B for her birthday week.

Sunday night, October 15th, local deejay Solo Dolo, radio host Mike Dean, Eric Fisher, just to name a few, brought to the city of Pittsburgh at Club Xtanza for entertainment Cardi B. Anticipation was intense that evening as I pulled up, I looked down Smallman street and seen a line that wrapped around the block for both VIP and general admission. Of course I had to do presale VIP couldn’t, beat the price nor the fact that I didn’t have to wait in line…yay!!

Usually I would’ve said, “Naw it’s a school night for me and the kids I can’t be out” but for $100, I was in there! Now though Cardi B currently only has three mixtapes, two of which she released in six months “What Bih working as hard as her?” lol, literally. She performed in full “Bodak Yellow”, “Foreva”, and she did her verse to “Lick” featuring Offest, which is my jam!! “These blogs got b***hes all shook of me, they be like Chef Cardi B what you cooking b?”

Hair styles were on fleek…outfits were on hammer time *beat drops* can’t touch this!! Everyone came and showed out with their styles for Cardi B. A lot of Femi styles, Fashion Nova, and Lundon looks just to name some retailers. Things remained on trend, velvet was the look of the evening, along with lacey looks, faux furs, disco pants, the city showed out!

Outside of a lovely, great vibing, late night event, *psst (come closer)* I got to get dressed up, yesssssss!!! Pittsburgh is expanding and evolving to fit the lifestyle of this future merchandise buyer, hmmmmm or better yet a storefront owner, idk, but it was a freaking awesome night, should’ve just been there. But if you did miss it I heard that the F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S was coming for Thanksgiving, seems only right to have a great excuse to get dressed up. Smooches.

Fashionable Travels 2017!!

Blog Post 1

#MadeInAfrica2017FashionShow #NewYorkFashionWeek2017

Hello!! Hello!! Hello!! So excited to finally get a chance to blog my first post. It took me a while just to find the right platform and actually continuous reason behind my blogging endeavors. This year has been grand with so many travels that I never really get to share my experiences with anyone, I mean I can write it down in my journal but why not just share with the world. With my graduation months away for me to receive my bachelors degree, I decided to spend the remainder of school on fashionable travels.  I made it to Richmond, VA, Fort Lauderdale /Miami, FL, Washington DC, Philadelphia, PA…..the list goes on and on and hasn’t reached its peak just yet.

The travel that was my favorite and most recent so far is…dun dun dunnnnn…..New York Fall Fashion Week 2017. I witnessed my first underground fashion show called Made in Africa. With designers Madiare K, MRO PALACE, Kennsha Nycole, and Melissa Lockwood Runway Shows, just to name a few. All designs were beautifully colored, draped, hemmed, and embedded within their culture and, *psst* get this all items were ready-to-wear. *squeals*

Defiantly a needed vacation and escape from everyday life, school, work, and motherhood. A chance to show everyone a my street vibes that would work for any wearer, especially for a plain Jane like myself. Also, I got to indulge in some spectacular shrimp scampi marinated in lemon sauce, mhmm mhmm mhmmm good, from Bubba Gump Shrimp, the meal and experience is more so enjoyable if you know the movie Forrest Gump, by the way. Made it to Dallas Barbecue, finger licking good, however the beef ribs were more so fatty than meaty but I’m a chicken eater anyhow, *shrugs shoulders*.

Got to do minimal shopping. Made it to Steve Madden, which by the way, sells Surpega branded shoes, totally off guard with that business move. I was able to buy myself some velvet maroon booties, which is a must right now for this fall season. Though I was a day late to the start of New York Fashion week i made it in time for the Fenty Beauty release, and let me tell y’all the “trophy Wife” highlight and the gloss is everything and then some. Trust me when I say, I’m no beauty expert but the smoothness of Rihanna’s lip gloss and the subtle yet sexy reflective effect from the highlight makes you feel like the next beauty ambassador, lol.  Any who, there is still more places for me to visit before the year is done, hmmmm I’m thinking LA.

Oh and the background artwork that was beautifully displayed behind me is by the  talented Javon Conaway. Follow him on Instagram @artbyjcon.

25 to Life

The first 25 years of my life flew by. Literally, where did the time go, shoot even being in the present I miss moments. I’ve been in search for a new outlet of self. I waited for love because I believed that age tied into me being ready to love someone or even just to receive love, but I was wrong. I thought that because of age I was suppose to already have certain things accomplished in life but I was so off about that. My epiphany’s for life didn’t even become repetitive in thought until after  I stopped believing that being single, a parent, whose never wed doesn’t make you an old maid. Just makes you seasoned, lol. I decided to feel okay that I have love marks (stretch marks). I started feeling okay to keep loving others even when others choose not to. I finally believe its okay to love myself and I love me even more for doing that. Now I am 28 years old, two daughters, and in pursuit of my bachelors degree in fashion marketing. You’re keeping up with a future merchandise buyer!!

I started this blog to show the world what I love. I never get to share my love without an obligation attached to it but this blog will be a chance for me to be expressive from an emotional stance. Facebook is def mental but not from a bias angle, my Instgram shows my different avenues of style I get to play with, Twitter is my rant page that cant be express in 140 characters or less..lol. But now I have a blog where I can share my food choices, great reads, fashionable events, and travels, I hope you all enjoy!!!
