Happy In My Own World


Hey guys… I feel like I have been away for soooooo long almost a month. YIKESSSSS!!!! The crazy thing is I have been shooting just have been too busy to update to the blog. So if you missed my fur number last week on Instagram I will try my very best to post it tomorrow. To be honest with you guys, these last few months haven’t been the easiest for me especially this past week having to take a trip to the emergency room. Sucks but S%&T happens right! The funny thing is with each doctor’s visit and trip to the ER I am learning more and more about myself kind of crazy right. But I count it all joy because life will have its ups and downs, ins and outs but that’s what molds and shapes us, and as long as I’m not dying I think I’m doing aightttttttttt!!!!

On another note, have you guys seen the Rita Ora by Adidas collaboration? So in LOVE to say the least. When I spotted this track suit in Adidas the other day I had to have it. It’s fashionable and so comfy. Hello Athleisure! Perfect for just lounging around, shopping, or when your boo comes over. Check out the full collection on the Adidas website.

While I was in Williamsburg last week with one of my favorite girlies, we came across this super cute and quaint thrift store nestled on the street corner. I just knew we had to go in and check it out. While my friend kind of rolled her eyes and shook her head at me because she knows I love to shop she agreed reluctantly. Needless to say, we ended up spending over an hour in the store and walked away with over $250 in merchandise combined. Let me just be very clear, $250 in thrift store money is like 8 million dollars shopping retail lol. Ok… Ok…. maybe not that extensive but we racked up.

This colorful coat is one of the gems I snagged while shopping. My friend kept saying it was so unflattering but I just had to have it. So I debated for a little while, put it back a few times, which is something you NEVER I repeat NEVER do in a thrift store because someone is bound to snatch it up and your gem becomes their gem. But as I approached the counter to pay for my other items this sweet old lady said “You only live once, get the coat before I do” that’s all I needed to hear. Now it’s all mine!!!!

What a whirlwind of a month it has been and I mean that in every sense of the word. Whewwwww Lord! You guys just don’t know. I don’t really want to go into too many details but I’m just so happy things have turned around and are looking up. One thing to always remember when you’re going through something really hard is there are people who are in tougher situations than you are. I know, I know it sounds sooooooo cliché, and the situation you may be facing seems so real to you, but if you can find some sort of light even for a millisecond during those tough times it helps. It’s so important for us to count it all joy and lean on our faith and trust in God. He truly is the One who fills us up and helps us.
I don’t want to sound like I’m preaching but God is sooooooooo good guys really, really, really good. On a lighter note, I am completely crushing over this velvet trend. I picked up these boots and a few others (soon to come to the blog) a few weeks ago and I am in love. They truly are perfect for fall and winter. I decided to pair them with this oversized sweater from Zara for a more relaxed feel. Perfect fall look! Talk to you guys soon. Toodles J
P.S. Omg guys I completely almost forgot to tell you I picked up Jefree Star’s highlighter “King Tut” and let me just tell yall when I say that highlighter is poppin it is P.O.P.P.I.Nnnnnnnnnnn ok thank you mammmmmm because that highlight goodness is nothing to play with. If you have a few extra dollars ($29 to be exact) please pick this up you will not regret it. I am wearing it in today’s look. Ok fa real bye!

Black Out

This past weekend was pretty awesome, I attended BeautyConNYC for the first time and let me just tell you it was a makeup lovers dream. If you’ve never been you have to go! So many of my favorite makeup companies were there Milani, Lime Crime, NYX, Luxie, Laura Geller, and so many more. Not to mention the swag bags were amazing as well as the freebies and discounted prices. I will definitely be going next year. The following day I got up with my favorite girlie for drinks at a cool little spot in Brooklyn. Across the street I spotted this red wall and just knew we had to snap pictures. So we did, and then enjoyed dinner and girl talk!

My People

This week officially marks the end of summer. Bummerrrrrrrrr!!!!!! While I’m not looking forward to the freezing temperatures New York brings in the winter, I am excited about the Fall, over the knee boots, furs, hot cocoa, and of course layering up. To be honest, Fall is my favorite season of the year but I love New York summer’s. So, while the weather is still warm and I can rock a little sheer number I will.
On a more serious note, it truly saddens me when I begin to think about the current state of this country. I no longer believe “The land of the free” is so called “FREE” when black men are being slaughtered  for the color of their skin. It’s not a Black, White thing because neither you nor I woke up and decided you know what… I want to be White today or Chinese, or Indian, or any other race. It’s something we were born into. The issue is a love, hate thing and until this country can learn to love one another for the contents of their character and not their skin color more innocent black men will be killed. I’m disgusted and sickened by all of this. Saddened for my people. The only answer to these injustices is love. Vengeance belongs to God we will all have to answer Him one day. Now is the time for us as a people to come together more than ever. It’s not a time to be quiet. Let’s encourage one another to go back to school, get degrees, better our communities so we won’t have to fall victim to a system that is designed to kill us. We will become the system.

You guys know the saying “When you love something, buy it in every color”. Well I say when you love something buy it in every color AND buy it twice if need be. I know you’re probably thinking “huh Star?” but yes I’m serious. These shoes I am absolutely in love with this season. So, I went out and bought them in taupe and black (see previous posts). O! and this two piece well it’s actually just two of the same shirt. GENIUS! I know, I know I try just a little lol lol just kidding. I thought it would be cute to step out the box a little and try something different and I love the way it turned out.

Can I Get A Two Piece?

One thing I absolutely love about the summer is throwing on a simple two piece and heading out for lunch, or dinner or breakfast. (I’m hungry while typing this lol) This city seriously has some of the best spots to grab a bite to eat. Sometimes I wish getting dressed up, laughing with friends and spending unnecessary money could be my full time job. Vain… a tad bit but who wouldn’t want that lifestyle J On a more serious note, I grabbed this 2 piece from Zara recently and I love how versatile it is. I can throw this number on with sneakers or sandals and I can dress it up with heels. This will definitely be on repeat so don’t say I didn’t tell you so.

Denim Highs

I’m not really a sneaker girl. My best friends always tease me because I’m always the one in heels when we go out, literally no matter where we go lol. I think I even wore heels to a cookout once (smh what was I thinking). I guess you can call me a super girlie girl if that can be used as my excuse lol. Now don’t get me wrong I have the staple sneakers every girl should have which mainly consists of anything Adidas. However, I don’t get all hype when a new pair of Jordan’s are released, and honestly I could care less what new Lebron’s are out. I’ll leave that’s to my brothers. Although, I must say it was quite refreshing and comfortable to throw on a pair of “Stan Smith” Adidas for today’s look. Really loving the denim on denim trend that’s resurfacing lately. Takes me back to the 90’s growing up in Philly where all we wore were matching denim outfits thinking we were so flyy lol.

The Center

Hey my fashion lovers I’m back and on top of the bed of a huge truck! Why not!!! Live a little! Lately I have been sticking to very simple tones and patterns, white and black to be exact. I’m a firm believer you dress how you feel and as of late I guess you can say I’ve been wanting to keep things very simple. Why? Because you’re the happiest in life when you don’t have the dramas of the world weighing you down, whether it be work, relationships, and/or family. You have to always find your center in the midst of those stressors and do what’s best for you. Remember you will always burn yourself out worrying about everyone else’s happiness but your own! While everyone else worries about what’s beneficial to themselves.

 Often times keeping it simple can be very difficult however, anything or anyone that does not add value to your life or allow you to grow you have to cut it off and find your peace. That does not mean it won’t hurt but in the end it’s the best thing for you. Find what makes you truly happy, like ice cream on a hot day, finding money in your pocket when you’re broke, flowers from your secret admirer, a hug, a kiss, or simply snagging the last pair of shoes you’ve been wanting online! Simplicity at its best.

I’ve really been into black lately (as you can tell from last week’s post) lol. Something about it is so sleek and edgy whether dressed up or down. So this past weekend this look was perfect for heading to my favorite brunch spot in the city with friends. I decided to go ALL black but played it up with different textures to add a little structure and pizzazz.
