New Opportunities!

Happy Friday Amigas!!

So I received a call from the mayor of our town and he asked that I fill a seat on the town's council board as a Commissioner. At first I was taken aback and wondered what does a commissioner actually do? Secondly, I didn't want to be a 'politician' and negatives associated with it.

 Then I was told that it is an opportunity to make a change in our local community and change lives by offering support and passing programs that will benefit the constituents. I'm definitely a people's person so I responded with a resounding, "Yes!" I grew up volunteering and doing community work so I thought this was right up my alley.

Fav Things of the Week

Hey Lovelies! I know it's only Wednesday and I already have a few fav things. I've been meaning to buy Dry Shampoo for awhile now, but after reading some reviews I learned that there not the best on African American hair. Boy was that a lie! I used some of my friend's DS named Pssst. and it instantly refreshed my oily hair. Now I'm sold on this product and it's good for all hair textures.

Snatching this super classy looking tuxedo cream and black blazer. I was looking for one that was moderately priced and quality-looking. Have you gals heard of Anarchy Street?! Check out there website I believe at Anarchystreet.com.

Planning my soon tone sis-in-laws bridal shower. I love hosting and entertaining!

Lastly, picking up my Masters Degree. That degree was the product of tears, sweat, prayer and never giving up. Yup, I'm in my Peejs before sleepy time, no blog etiquette on this one, lol.

As always thanks for stopping by and reading!

MBFW Fun!


Hey Loves!

Happy Thursday! MBFW has been so much fun. My friend and I attended Farrah Angsana's show and Sp 2013 is slated to have another fun season of bright hues and bold accent pieces. I'll share more of my shots later this week.

So I stopped by the Diet Pepis lounge and got my 'fizz' on. It was a lot of fun and I racked up on FW freebies. Woot!

I'm Back for Good! *Summer Highlights*

Dear Blogger Buddies,

It's been way too long since we've been in touch. This summer has been a whirlwind of events and sudden amazing opportunities. It's been one week since I've been back home from the South and boy do I cherish my daily life up North. While away, I helped produce an awesome Indie movie with a bunch of bright and brilliant burgeoning stars. I learned a lot along the way and I know that I've grown tremendously professionally and personally. Plus, my husband Kirk was with me all throughout the journey so it made the experience all the more priceless. I love watching and learning from him because he's literally the wisest person I know. Working so closely with him was all the more awesome.

In between those 13 hour days I had ZERO time to blog and share our fun stories. I'll be blogging again consistently but I plan on blogging every other day so around 4 times a week because I have so many extra responsibilities. Plus, I plan on mentoring some kids from the inner-city ghettos. Man , those kids have my heart because I was once them- a girl with big dreams from the ghetto. I just adore kids!

So enough about me- what were some of your summer highlights? No lies- I really miss all of your funny, touching, creative and cool stories.

Here's what I've been up to:
Fashion's Night Out with the girlies

My lovelies!

Me & My illegitimate 'twin' brother (born on the same day but 3 yrs apart)
