Late bloomers… still bloom

Lately I’ve had a lot of conversations with other creatives and seen posts about organic growth and followers(mostly pertaining to Instagram). I see a lot of creatives losing hope due to the lack of numbers and following. I can relate that it’s annoying when you are putting in work but it seems like nothing is working. I’ve had that experience in my craft, in my personal life and it always ended up working out once I changed the mindset and energy .As I mentioned in “Late Bloomer” , I started most things in life later than most or what society says due to being a Mother early. That alone makes me ok to not have what others have or getting there at the same time. It taught me that a different or longer route isn’t a bad thing.

Corner Store Mami

A corner store?  Yup a corner store! Growing up as a kid in Brooklyn my Summer memories  were Fire hydrates, Carnivals , bumping into rappers like Busta Rhymes at the local Mc Donalds and  corner store trips.  You couldn’t tell me I didn’t have the best Summers.  A few dollars would by  us quarter waters, sour powers, five peanut chews and an icy. The colors, the endless candy options was like my daily Disney.  In July while shooting this  look from NY Men’s Fashion Week, I decided to stop at a neighborhood corner store, post up and shoot. Me:  Hi I’m a blogger, * pulls out my phone and shows Instagram pics*  Can I shoot here? Owner: Sure! This is cool can I look while you shoot? This choice came about because I was tired and overdue for a switch up for a shoot location and style.  Once at the corner store, I was reminded that change is good and the spur of the moment  is sometimes the medicine to boredom(I get bored easily).  As a …
