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. I’ve been shifting my thoughts and focusing on all the great things and not the negative.  I find stressing takes away from …

#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 …

#BostonCoffeeTalk- May

We got caught up in one of those “Sike it’s Winter”weather on  May 7th. Nothing too bad to not meet up for coffee though. May’s #BostonCoffeeTalk was  on Style( which was served so end of discussion!) and Self care. Most of us work and juggle some other type of responsibility.  Some of us families, side hustles or just the day to day activities.  One thing we all need and should always invest in is Self care.  It was great to meet some new locals and hear how they self care and juggle entrepreneurship! Enlightening convo and great tips.  Thank you all!  Those who couldn’t make it due to being stuck in the parade, you were there in spirit and your attempt is appreciated.  Hope to see you next month.   I did mention that style was served right? Well…..   Was I lying? I want to rock an Afro, steal Bridgette’s  boots and get fitted for a new suit. Yasss Boston come through! Speaking of STYLE- I will be having my first Style Meet Up at …

Baby You’re a Star !

As I mentioned in my last post, Paramount theater is exciting.  The  bright lights reminded me of Times square  as a kid daydreaming while being yelled at by my mother to walk faster.  As an adult they  are still electrifying. The theater took me back to those days when I thought for sure I was going to be an Actor, Lawyer, Dancer and Fashion designer(all four) Dreaming big. As a blogger I’m used to taking pics and having people staring, but this day I had a moment like it was just me my photographer and those lights…nothing else.  Those lights gave me an extra boost and an important reminder that I’m whatever I say I am and can also achieve anything I put my mind to. Because the little details matter.  Added these colored socks for some fun. Even though you couldn’t see it much….it made me happy. So shine! Don’t question your uniqueness, quirkiness or your “whatever you have but don’t see often”.  Own it.  Everyday is your red carpet. You are a star …

Boston Coffee Talk- Caffe Nero

Seems like these months are flying by  and these Coffee Talks are one after another.  I love it though! This past Saturday  #BostonCoffeeTalk was held at the beautiful Caffe Nero in Downtown Crossing. Such a unique space with Victorian  like decor and beautiful vintage mirrors.  That and the friendly  staff is what sealed the deal for me. I owe myself another date there where I can soak it all in again while enjoying a good read. Uplifting and encouraging discussions among-st Entrepreneurs. Their drive and passion is so uplifting! I always leave wanting to go and create. Let’s not forget the bright and shining Paramount  theaters across the street that made the best backdrop. Something about bright lights I tell ya.I can only capture so much through the lens, but the real magic is in the energy, the convo’s and aha moments! Thank you again to all that attended and to the amazing team at  Caffe Nero!! I hope you can join us next month and if you are in NY this weekend, join me at #NewyorkCoffeeTalk in …
