Leather Ways

What a great background right? I recently stumbled across this graffiti encrusted wall while walking around in my neighborhood a few days ago and knew I had to do a post with it. My pink hi-low Topshop shirt, leather shorts and leather knee high boots was the perfect match.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmassssss loves…. I hope each and every one of you has a great holiday. This is my very first Christmas away from home. While I am homesick like crazy, and work won’t allow me to pack my bags and get on the first train smoking to the DMV I guess you could say I am finding comfort in new beginnings. It’s crazy how you embark on a new journey with your mind set on your goals and dreams not really realizing when the holidays roll around you tend to miss the comfort of having the ones you love so close to you. I’m sure I will be alright… nothing a little egg nog, facetime with family, and Christmas carols won’t fix hopefully. In the meantime, I hope you guys have an awesome Christmas and don’t forget to pray for those that are less fortunate or grieving a loss. This time of year can weigh heavy on a lot of people so just keep them in your prayers. Talk to you soon.

Going Green

Can you guys believe Christmas is 9 days away? Seems like this year flew by, and what better way to get into the holiday spirit than by snagging a forest green shaggy winter coat. I had been stalking this coat on Topshop for over a month. The minute it went on sale my little fingers couldn’t click “Send To Cart” any quicker lol. I absolutely love it. It adds that extra special touch, and is really warm too which is perfect as we head into winter. I’ve been purchasing a lot of outer wear pieces lately because these New York City winters can be brutal and I definitely don’t want to do them without a little style and sass.

Your 20’s…. my my my the best years and sometimes feels like the worst years of your life. It’s like you’re not a kid anymore but inside you still feel like you are and aren’t… weird concept but you get my drift. I mean just think about it, in a span of 10 years you probably will have experienced every emotion imaginable or at least it feels that way, you move into your first apartment, you fall in love, get your heart broken and vow never to love that hard again. YEA RIGHT lol…. You move to foreign places, you land your first entry level job at the company you’ve always dreamed about, you and grind some more, you take risks you never even thought about, and do things that are so random you have to stop and question yourself. Your 20’s…. you start to create your own businesses, you start looking at the future in a way you never really thought you would because that was for the old people right??? You go crazy with your friends, tell secrets you vowed to take to the grave and you laugh boyyyyyyy do you laugh a lot.

I say all this to say, you find out who you are in your 20’s. It’s like you go on this personal journey with yourself to find out who and what makes you…. YOU. While I don’t turn 30 for another 3 years sometimes I find myself sitting back and looking at how much I have grown from 20 to now 27. I say to all you who are rushing… STOP. Enjoy the madness that makes you who you are in your 20’s. Allow yourself to feel every emotion you want to feel because your feelings are justified. Allow yourself to get hurt and learn from the hurt… trust me it always makes a better you in the end. Allow yourself to go on your own personal journey everything else is just background noise don’t listen to it. Get to know you and be happy with you. Allow your 20’s to teach, mold, and inspire.
