Life Lessons from SXSW

If you are looking for a recap of all the latest technology, cool activations, or social media tricks I suggest you go to Adweek or Mashable. Did I learn a lot about those things? Ab-so-fucking-lutely! But the experience as a whole gave me much more. It reminded me of all those life lessons we often…

Work the Instagram Algorithm

Yes, we all want our chronological feeds back, but it looks like that isn’t happening. According to Instagram’s new algorithm, the platform is favoring posts with more engagement. What does this mean? If your posts are creating a lot of buzz with likes, comments, shares, video views, saves, and DMs, then that signals to Instagram…

WTF Happened?: An Honest Discussion About Burnout & Self-Care

Not sure if you noticed, but I haven’t posted a single blog post since September. Next, I stopped doing my cute (well I thought they were cute) IG stories explaining my outfits. Then I barely posted to Instagram at all, unless you count the rants about NJ Transit. If you have noticed, maybe you are…

Keys To An Outdoor Concert

Summer is officially over, but there is still a lot of fun to be had, especially with these unpredictable temperatures. I recently attended a liquor infused festival, Hennypalooza and it was just as fun as it sounds. To ensure I had fun I made sure not only was I cute, but I was also comfortable…

Let’s Get Nude

About two months among a friend of mine text me, asking if I was comfortable going nude. I didn’t second guess it, because this friend of mine is Jackie Moran, an amazing Creative Director and it would be for a good cause, inclusivity. Nude Against Nude is a creative project that confronts brands who treat…

My Obsession With Leotards

It’s impossible to walk through a Forever21, scroll through MissGuided or ASOS without passing a leotard or body suit. Every girl has at least one in her wardrobe. That’s fine, but I’m here to tell you I did it first and it all started with Capezio. Okay, I wasn’t like the first, first. Being the…

The Weekly Rundown

Giving you a rundown on the past week and it’s a busy one. As a matter of fact, someone pass me my covfefe! First, out prayers go out to London as they experienced another attack on the London Bridge. Van drove into several pedestrians on the bridge and then moved on to a local market…

Bloggers Take Note From Shea Moisture: Insights Matter

A few weeks ago Shea Moisture released a new commercial and Twitter exploded. Something was missing…their main customer! Shea Moisture isolated their biggest consumer, women of color. When I watched the commercial, I had a few questions. Did anyone check the analytics of their social pages? Did anyone check their demographics? What was the insight?…

The Weekly Rundown

It’s been a while, but here’s the rundown of the week with a little something special. In case you need a little Monday morning outfit inspo, here’s my look of the week.

Hello From The Windy City

  So I just returned from a work trip in Chicago. But, I know you didn’t think I left without having some fun! Working in New York, I often take for granted all the sites that people travel thousands of miles to see. So, being in a new city I took full advantage of being…

Curls & Camo

We’re transitioning to Spring and it’s that awkward “What do I wear,” kind of weather. But, the first sign of sun, I go for all of my favorite things. Ripped jeans and a crop top, even if it is a cropped sweater. When it’s this weird weather, my go-to jacket is a military jacket I…

The Weekly Rundown

Giving you the rundown on what happened this past week. First it was women, immigrants, and now the LGBT community is next on Trump’s list to piss off. He reversed Obama’s policy that allows transgender students to use bathrooms with their gender identity, rather than their birth certificate. Laverne Cox, actress and activist, immediately got…
