Thrift & Rip

i am colorful . i am energized . i am inspired .



I’m versatile when it comes to what I wear. I truly feel most comfortable in street styled clothing. Of course, I got stares of my shirt being half in half out but I am confident whenever I step anywhere past my mailbox. I don’t care if I’m in second-hand goods. Regardless, of the millions I plan to make in the future my love for the thrift shop won’t ever die.

BLONDE MOMENT: The earliest known thrift/”charity” shop was in 1899 selling goods that were made by blind people to raise money. It’s obviously more popular now for different reasons such as, for those who are frugal, environmentalist, or fashionistas like myself on a hunt for one of kind items.DSC_0442DSC_0449


Thrift & Rip



Happy New year !! the new year always seems to give me the opportunity to have a fresh new start . 2013 gave me great memories of my last track & field season after competitively competing for 15 years , graduating from the University of Florida, my big brother got married, a job and another year of celebrating the holidays with my family . But of course you have your downs of the lost of loved ones and friendships you thought were real . life is like an elevator : on your way up, sometimes, you have to stop and let some people off . *kanye shrug* . all in all, i’m enjoying the journey of hard work and sometimes failures . past six months since graduation i have encountered rapid success . i’m on the right track but no where near where i wanna be . 2014 will be a great year . consistency is key . #goaldigger .DSC_0031_2 DSC_0110 DSC_0128DSC_0131

blog colorfully fashion conference .

Image 32013 styles of color fashion blog conference . SBOC director mattie james put on an excellent program at the hyatt regency this weekend in miami . like any event you may attend there are highs and lows . lows : keynote guest speaker, street etiquette cancelled at the last minute *sad face* . highs : event having some of the top fashion bloggers such as blake von d, down to stars, kela’s kloset, the tiny closet, all things slim, the skinny hipster, charles wade, style chic 360 and omg many more . every speaker was sweet as can be but of course there is always that one bad apple/”diva”. nevertheless, even that was impossible to kill my vibe when surrounded by  extremely talented women . i went to five different workshops and its hard to say which one was my favorite . but my gosh i fell in love with  attorney, shay m. lawson big beautiful curls in workshop “no no no, you should be getting paid for that.” she helped me realize i need to cover my bases as a blogger when posting content, collaborating with brands and signing agreements . “pr worthy” with nicole garner was also very informing with helping with press and connecting with brands . good thing i already have a pr ! and honeyyy, I’ve got to get a dslr cameras after “outside of the blogging box” workshop and speaking personally with host anais alexandre . dslr nikon please santa  🙂

entirely, i had an awesome time . ambitious woman in all colors, shapes, and sizes . it was an intimate setting which allowed me to network with so many people who have the same passion as me . what more can you as for ?
