Month: September 2016

Late Bloomer

Fall and  layering season is finally here *does the running man*   and so is the  reminder that we only have 3 more months till the end of the year. Like just three….. Only. It feels just like the other day I was decked out in all Green saying Happy New year 😫. While I made new year goals like most, it was also important to attack those goals at a pace that worked for me and my life. As a creative in the days of social media, there are examples as to what , where we can be and how to get there.  This can be inspiring, but can quickly be discouraging if viewed differently. Late bloomers isn’t just a childhood thing. It happens as adults and should be something we embrace. Others successes should be an inspiration and reminder  for us versus a pitty party for how far we haven’t gone. Personally, Ive always reached my milestones   differently than most of my peers. Highschool I became a Mom at 17 and  graduated  with …

Lately

So one minute I was on the beach in San Juan Puerto Rico, then next thing I know I’m back and diving head first into New York Fashion Week prep and invites.  From there it’s been like the first week of High school.  Excitement, fatigue and anxiety.  So all in all I’m still blessed but I feel like I’ve been sprinting and needed to sit my ass down and just ….sit there.  No thinking no nothing. My body started trying to shut down while in NY and officially progressed when I got back home.  Made it through my #BostonCoffeeTalkBrunch and was wiped out after that. Now that I’m feeling better I’m back to werk, styling and working on some events. I stopped looking for the “Perfect Balance” and just focus on maximizing my time and working smart.  Some days I’m on it and other days I’m chasing it like a missed bus. That’s OK.

#BostonCoffeeTalk 1 Year Anniversary Brunch

Last Saturday I held a brunch at the beautiful Outlook Kitchen + Bar  to celebrate #BostonCoffeeTalk 1 year anniversary .  Whooot!  It sold out and attendees shut it down! If you have been following the blog and or my social media handles you know that this was a meet up I started last August for local creatives to come together and Meet. Build. Sip.  I’m grateful for the support for both Boston and #NewYorkCoffeeTalk. Every month we met strangers, locals from all walks of life who left an impression on the meet up.  I never dragged to attend, but more so overly  excited for who I’d meet and what I’d learn that Saturday. This Saturday was like #BostonCoffeeTalk MAX  topped with serious….SERIOUS street style. It felt like all of the meetups combined with glitter. We had Bloggers, Serial Entrepreneurs, Designers, Artist, Mom’s, Bosses to name a few in attendance. A few times I caught myself sitting in admiration of  the attendees and the energy that filled the room. Priceless. In typical #BostonCoffeeTalk fashion, we hit the …
