One thing I can’t get enough of is New York flowers. you pass the grocery stores and BAM flowers on the street, you pass a bodega and BAM flowers, you honestly just can’t help but one to buy every single of them. HI guys long time no- see right? Well ya girls back and better than ever with an even cooler looking blog. Yep I designed and it all by myself which is why it took me a while to get it all up and moving’.so you like the new blog layout?
So let me catch you guys up on my life………so now I’ve been living in New York about 5 months and let me tell you its no walk in central park. Its been a harder adjustment than I thought it would be but have no worries since moving here I’ve met some lovely people and found my way around so at least I’ve got that going for me. I’ve been working in fashion but at the same time Ive also been going to auditions and castings on the side because besides fashion, a love of mine since I’ve been little has been to be an actress and singer: and I decide that I’m in the perfect city to get that dream started and Im not yet ready to give up on those dreams. I think things are starting to pay off for me too because your girl just landed a part in a movie; its called a prayer for justice; so excited for everyone to see it.
But just like flowers things take time to grow and bloom. So follow you dreams-not people and eventually things will align and you’ll be in the right place and right time.

Im sad to say but this is the first beach day of the summer, its the first time I’ve been in a bathing suit all summer long. This island girl is usually a fish out of water when the sunshine and warm season come around but this summer came around and I didn’t much of a chance to get in the water because of my big move to New York. Since I didn’t have much of a chance to dip my toes into the water but a couple weeks I went to Jones Beach with my mogull family( New York Family), amazing group of friends I made since moving to New York.
Ladies you know what conversation me must have right? Body Positivity!
I’ve NEVER felt comfortable in my body, having been petite my entire life and being busty is kind’ve a weird combination but honestly it took me years to get semi comfortable in my own body. And each Year when its the season of suits, I almost dread it and I hate that feeling. First and fore most because I love swimming and being in the water, secondly I hate feeling uncomfortable about my body and feeling like Im beautiful and fitting enough to rock a suit or even have a body. But Ya’ll Im here to tell you it all starts with positivity, BODY POSITIVITY that is. Love the body your in and DON”T think twice about what others think about your body or you.

With everything going on in the world no its so hard not to feel all kinds of way; angry, sad, frustrated, annoyed, and even depressed. So………………….
Let me invite you for a hot steaming cup of reality. People are saying since 2014 there have been protest for racial injustice. People have hit the streets in protesting, chanting slogans and fervidly begging for their rights, and also in most of these situations there are armed forces that are fully equipped with full force; and they themselves engaged and clash with protestors by making violent arrest. But this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia things were a little bit different . We all saw extremely passionate protestors take to the streets, most of them were chanting and clearly standing up for their rights. but the police force was on a completely different level, they came in riot gear. Like SERIOUSLY!!!
The majority of people that gathered are white supremacists and nationalists fighting to to try to attain symbols ad social impact of white supremacy. There are such horrible circumstance surrounding these topics but this is the reality. Most people think that this is just started happening but the truth is all these horrible groups of people who have such hatred for others who look different have always been a part of reality; the media may not have vocalized them but the existent of them have ALWAYS been there.
Honestly there are no words for how I feel besides VERY ANGRY. Im tired of feeling this way, I’m tired of feeling like I have no say and that my opinions and how I feel doesn’t matter. Im sure a lot of people as well feel the exact same way . But I think what we can do is to continuing to stand for our rights and not letting hatred win. Love is more powerful than hate so lets send out all the positivity and love out there.

Bold Statement Earrings Bold flare Jeans! Yes! YES! This is an outfit perfect for those light and cool summer days. With this outfit you probably never thought I was 5 ft 5 but Scike your girl is PETITE! YEP looking like I’m a 6 foot giraffe has always been a goal of mine so when I find outfits that allow me to reach my full height potential you bet I buy those suckers. These pants have been with me for couple years now and I am obsessed with them! Their light blue color is perfection which goes with just about any color top and of course I love the quality because its Free People, ya’ll.
I never thought that I could pull off flare pants or statements for that matter because I am soo petite but after my first pair of flares I just couldn’t stop wearing them. so sometimes guys its good to go outside your comfort zone and especially in fashion when that part of your brain is telling you “it won’t work”, ” it won’t look good”; thats when you go for it and you rock it.

Hello my Loves….I know definitely long time no see. Right? your probably thinking WTF, OMG, WHERE THE BLOODY HAVE YOU BEEN?? I know I’ve been MIA! But let me tell you its been a tough couple months. Last you guys have heard I moved to New York chasing my childhood dreams of becoming a fashion Designer. So I packed my outfits and some heels in my mustard suitcase (two to be percise) and several bags and made my way to the Big Apple. I’ve ALWAYS dreamed of moving to New York when I came to to the States, but the minute I packed my bags and went out the door I suddenly felt extremely rush, unprepared, and not ready to leave the nest and have to say goodbye to my family and friends. So when I was headed out to NewYork I still hadn’t found a place to live yet(YIKES), yikes is correct. I was so incredibly lucky that my father drove me out and decided to stay a little bit in NYC with me to help me find a place to live. My sister in law knows a friend of a friend (you know that goes), I was very lucky because through the New York Institute ofTechnology I was able to get a room in their building on the Upper west side on 86th street. And dare I say it I moved myself in and started to live in a building with dare I say a doorman. UH! I know I was thinking I was going to be living out my long awaited gossip girl dreams! Wrong!
I’ve visited New York before I mean its not like its my first time being in the city and roaming the streets but this time it was different and I know why; because it was permeant. PERMEANT! Not in the term as I can never EVER leave but for now it was a pretty fixed and permeant thing. So I don’t think I ever actually mentioned what besides my dream brought me out here. I Also got a fashion design Internship with a company (you may know) called Jonathan Simkhai . I needed an Internship to graduate which is the main the reason I got into the internship to begin with, But in the end it was definitely for the best because I was new to the city, need to know my way around and also meet new people. And that is actually where I’ve met some very close friends of mine. So while being an Intern I was trying to find a job and also trying to find my way around the city and have a life. So that’s why you guys really haven’t heard from me its been hard trying to balance it all and honestly its been lonely. Having just moved to the city not knowing anyone, it got hard and I became money and even a little depressed. So I’m sorry you guys haven’t heard much from me but I took that time to try to get my life and myself together.
Now that is been almost three months since I’ve moved to the big city and I just got offered a couple jobs (YES), I been waiting for offers like this forever. I’ll tell you guys more about those jobs and position when I get further long in them. If you follow me on Instagram you would also see that last week I moved from the Upper west side to Brooklyn. Yes! FINALLY! Now that I have moved in to my new apartment, I think that I can finally settle down and start writing and posting, and more importantly move on further with my life, and have a balance and routine to my everyday. Im so glad that I am back. Keep reading and stay tune for more. Sending you all virtual hugs and kisses.
