    Nappy-Oke 2012

    The past two weeks I’ve been having too much fun! I’ve been able to attend several events and this weekend I attended the 6th annual  Nappy-Oke. Again I was able to meet some AMAZING entrepreneurs. There were several natural hair vendors, clothing vendors, and please don’t get me started on the GORGEOUS handmade jewelry!! We sang karaoke, belly danced, and of course it would not have been complete without the Wobble Baby Wobble Baby Wobble Baby Wobble! And ended it with a Fashion show where I was able to dress a few models…Over all the event was a blast! Can’t wait to see what they do at the Convention Center next year!…

    DREAM BIG

    Over the past week I’ve had the pleasure to attend quite a few events. My top favorite was Dream Day at Howard University. We had the pleasure of hearing from  2 different panels which I classified as the new generation and the older generation. I of course was overly excited to know that yes my loves Angela Simmons and Vanessa Simmons was going to be there and from the crowd that was there I wasn’t the only one who felt that way. I thought that they would be the highlight of the event pertaining to fashion and business but I was so sincerely wrong! As the panels came to an…

    Sitting in the beauty shop on last Friday I was looking at my stylist collection for her mobile boutique HodgePodge and what stood out to me was this high low pink and black shirt with spike on the shoulder. It was super cute! It made me think about my Vince Camuto pumps that I bought in 2010 with the studded detail on the heel. I was thinking how I didn’t think that studs and spike wouldn’t be a trend that take over the way it did but there are some super cute statement pieces that I have come across so I had put together a collage about of a few statement…

    SABOTAGE

    We often get paralyzed by fear. I found myself in a long conversation with one of my closest friends as she was late yet AGAIN for another OPPORTUNITY to kick start a part of her DREAM in being a model. I started to question whether or not she sabotages herself on purpose because she was afraid of the possibilities that were held on the other side. As we discussed I reflected on myself and how I’ve been the same way. I should have started this blog months ago but I kept postponing the start date by signing up to help others kick start their dream and making myself completely busy…
