Fresh Produce Apparel!!

“If you noticed that I’m different,

Don’t take it personally,

Don’t be mad…it’s just a brand new kind of me

And it ain’t bad…i found a brand new kind of free…” ~ Alicia Keys

Starting off as a radio host of No Chill Radio gave the start in the right direction for Paige. She created her brand “Wrk.Play” and did a few concepts. Those concepts evolved to an even bigger presence for herself. After a much needed dose of growth she went from hosting to really wearing a fashion designers hat. Paige never stopped her goal she gave it a new twist. We were all caught up in Paige’s web for a few years with her intricate detailed webbed styled, but then she revamped her brand and gave it a fresh look thus, Fresh Produce Apparel was created.

Fresh Produce Apparel is just that, fresh Apparel for the everyday wearer, innovator, stylist, fashionista with the flare of urban wear giving a constant look that keeps you classic yet allows you to remain on trend. Her recent venture took off with some inspiration from the F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S family. Adding hand painted pop art to looks of different denim style sent the city in a whirlwind.

Paige is a woman with a heart of gold and she’s allowing her inner wealth shine brighter than the sun! That’s extreme black woman magic! You can check out her designs and styles on her newly revamped website!! Liking for updates sooner you can also follow her on Facebook @PaigeCorrin and Instagram @freshproduce_paige. Oh and for 24/hr fun hit her Snapchat too @Paigaaa!!!

Portia Foxx of WAMO100!!

“No one man should have all that power…” ~Kanye West “Power”

Having a platform with so much power comes with great responsibility. It’s not just entertainment when it comes hosting on-air with WAMO 100, there’s a recent urge for more. Portia Foxx is pushing to give the city more…more ways to thinking, more ways to understanding, and more ways of being more than just a top hit playing radio station.

Born and raised in the city of Pittsburgh, the striving, thriving independence of her mother showed her just enough to want to push herself just as hard. With so much controversy in the world right now from America’s new presidency, shift in culture gain, H&M fiasco, even here in our home town at local pizzeria “Pizza Milano” we need some peace. At times it’s the media outlets that gives understanding to the confusion, open opinion to the chaos, and at times bridges the gap between local and mainstream artist. Portia Foxx has found a way to expand her platform and reach out to the city of Pittsburgh through the avenues of radio hosting, event hosting/planning, beauty stylist, and much more allowing for her hands on approach as a step in the right place. You never know what to expect next! Smooches!!

You can’t listen to Portia Foxx on-air with WAMO 100.1 Saturday’s 2-6pm and also on podcast with the @theburghboyz Tuesday at 7pm on @blogordieradio!!

Click below on the link to hear this dope conversation. Portia is doing things and she’s *snaps twice* foxy in how she’s getting it done!!

Raven’s Resolution!!

“If not now, when? If not me, then who?…” ~N.E.R.D”

Shouts: Let me hear that spartan spirit!! What’s that you say!?! Oshh ayyyeee Schenley high!!! Osshhh ayyyeee Schenley High!?!!!

Raven Miller has transition from WNBA Schenley all star to providing solutions for those without with the start of her non profit business called Raven’s Resolution.

It was all a dream…Raven Miller knew for a long time knew she wanted to help people and not in the everyday way of how some assume you should go about things. The lane that Raven has created for herself is the first in the city, her compassion and understanding that she has for herself and others were put to the test as she embarked on the venture of helping the homeless.

This interview hit home and I was excited to really reach out to her because I know all the while how it is to be in a situation where your stuck and don’t know what to do next but you know something needs to happen. People walk by so many people in need and won’t help because of the assumptions of that persons life decisions, not knowing nor understanding that we all are striving to survive as adults yet alone just being humans m. We weren’t given a manuscript on survival but we must all thrive and the help that Raven allows for that much more stability.

Click the link below and listen to the work she’s surviving, striving, and thriving to do! Smooches!!

Dream. Something. Bigger!!

“Goddamn, what a time, what a year…

We are what them young boys fear…

I kill, never been killed, that’s real, no lies…

You can tell that from our pulse right now…” ~Goldlink

I had the pleasure of finally getting a chance to link with Capo himself. One of the originators of DSB, Dream Something Bigger, a business that started 10 years ago with a group of friends from the east side of Pittsburgh. It was the respect, love, and support of one another and from the community that has helped root the establishment into the business it has flourished to today.

I first met Capo originally earlier this month at #TheUltimatePowershoot mixer that was brought together by Nabíla Yasamen El-Bey. And just to show networking at its finest, flash forward me and Capo are sitting down inside of Panera Bread in Bakery Square conversing about black business and what we can do to collectively gain the right economics to keep business sustainable.

Not only is Capo an artist but DSB, Dream Something Bigger, has branded clothing; they’ve also provide the services of videography, photography, graphic designs, and promo services. Recently, they have started down the lanes of producing events in regards to parties; you never really know what to expect with the way business has evolved for DSB.

Never. Broke. Again!!

“I’ve been counted out so many times I couldn’t count it, Funny how now my accountant is havin’trouble tryna count it, To the people who think that I owe you shit, Paybacks a bitch and you know that shit…” ~Drake

To never be broke again it’s not just a lifestyle it’s a movement. NeverBrokeAgain (N.B.A) goal behind the business is to become self sufficient…real live self made boss!! Raukeem Hawkins serves the mission well and with great purpose.

Hold up hold up, peep my shirt though…gang gang!! This one here is a FarESH Brand throwback. Make sure you check out my previous post with the interview of the brand owner and creative director Ryan Brown.

I met Raukeem back almost two decades ago but back then he was just a man with a paper route and a potentially bright future ahead. Well he took that potential and made it a reality for himself. Reaching his lowest of lows gave him the bounce back to get up and stand up on all ten toes! We got to sit down at Hello Bistro over on East Carson Street of the Southside to talk about what’s next for business and how he plans to sustain the empire he has.

Click the link below to hear this black mans magic plan to action!! Oh and forgive the hiccup in the conversation had to adjust the sound for my listeners! Smooches!!

Check out his website for all the exclusives!!

Faaaaaaarrrrrr From Fresh…He’s Faresh!!

“If you broke, Go to, Work

Make that big booty, Twerk

Make that big booty, Twerk

Can I touch that Booty?

That booty, that big ol’ booty”

Had to take it back, back with this one. Man this man right here has been one of few who’ve inspired me and he didn’t even know it, that’s how grand he’s been. It’s been almost two decades of greatness for this man and it all started from a idea with his friends. An idea that has flourished into a sustainable business. Ryan Brown has established a way to provide a space to help not just himself but now more to flourish and to stand on their own ten toes.

As I walked into Panera bread on Centre Avenue, I hear my name being said from a smiling Ryan Brown, who greeted me with a warm hug. As I approached him he was already seated with his planner out on the table getting he’s day, weeks, and month together. I sat down feeling extra *ahemm* ummm feeling good so to say lol and proceeded to get my giggles out because I knew that this time around I would really be allowing myself to be vulnerable as I paid my respects to this mans work ethic and consistency overall.

In recent years Ryan has touched into the avenues of throwing parties together. With a recent one in effect to happen this Saturday it gives the city of Pittsburgh something to look forward to. He wants to make sure you have fun with this event so attendance is of the most necessity.

Oh and peep my throwback farESH branded clothing…Taylor gang…Taylor gang!!
