Living My Dreams.. Well, almost.

I’M ALIVE!

I haven’t been able to post because I have been putting all of my effort into S&FW, my new boutique! Quick back story: this is something I’ve wanted to do for SO long. I noticed I was surrounding myself with a lot of people with ‘ideas’ but none were actually executed. So I did it. I bit the bullet and with some extra money from a paycheck I filed for my business license. From there it was uphill. I applied for about 8 loans, and because of some stupid things I pulled in college, they all got declined. I was back to square one. Kinda hard to get inventory with no monies… So, it started at about a 10k purchase order, and I had to ween that down to $1500. I filed my taxes, got back my return, and instead of paying off my credit cards (whoops) I decided to take a chance and buy inventory for the store. When I got everything in it was a rush. Had to schedule a photoshoot- had to make up descriptions and enter all the products online, enter tax rates, shipping, etc. With the help of some amazing people, both local photographers and my beautiful friends (aka the modelz) everything was finally starting to fall together. A lot of sleepless nights, and working after work to wake up and go to work again, it launched. I have never felt such a sense of pride and happiness in anything I’ve done. I was SO OVERWHELMED by the support I received upon launch from my friends, family, and even people I haven’t talked to in forever! It was incredible. People ask me what I’m doing on my lunch break (at my day job) and I’ll tell them shipping orders out. While they think this sounds horrible (and I admit it isn’t the most exciting part of the business) I am so motivated and excited to do it. It may not make sense to most, but hey, idgaf. It’s my baby and I can’t wait to see how much it grows in the coming months!

So that’s where I’ve been. I’ve added some shots below of the product line- check it out. I’ll be back next week with a new, witty, opinionated post about something totally unrelated. BUT SERIOUSLY CHECK DIS SHIT OUT.

FASHION DIARIES || Baby, it’s really, really, super cold outside.

So, winter is in full swing here in “HOTlanta” (yeah…ok.) So you know I had to GTFO. These are some of my winter looks, along with some from my little weekend getaway to Miami (why isn’t it called HOTami or some shit..? You know, since it actually always IS HOT AS HELL down there.) Just wondering. Anyways, see below for some fashion inspiration for all my fashionistas. Since i’m super trendy and all.. Go with it.

Who made boujee a word?

First post; no pressure. Basically I went out and bought a waterfall trench coat and decided I could definitely write a fashion blog… But all jokes aside. I’ve been in and out of the fashion industry for years and it’s always been my passion. Oh, and good food is kind of my thing…. and dogs, and, well, anything that has to do with consuming alcoholic beverages for that matter. That being said I’m not a ‘cool girl.’ I can’t shoot whiskey and I’m not going to drink a beer just because we are at a baseball game. I’m going to walk out of my way to find somewhere with vodka, or wine. So boujee, I know. Enough about booze.. So, my dog is pretty awesome. When I first got him I decided to name him “Pucci Mane” you know, after Gucci Mane. People started spelling and pronouncing it wrong so needless to say things got really weird, really fast. I then named him Nugget, because I happen to be craving chicken nuggets at the time and the similarities between the two were uncanny. So, my little Nugget, AKA Sir Nugglesworth, AKA Nuggy Butt, and AKA Shithead (when neccesary) is my world. My mom has a bunch of fur grandchildren to look forward to, not real life grandchildren.. #nope #nope and more #nope. Anyway, I think i’m funny which is all that matters I guess.. so I plan on posting cool, hilarious stuff along with some fashion and food thrown in (you know, for good measure)

Oh, and PS it’s Britney Spears’ birthday. So, make sure to write some creepy instagram comments on her page to remind her we are all pretty much her stalkers fo’ lyfe.

Good Vibes Only,
