I recently discovered this song and fell head over heels for it. I hope you do too if you haven't heard it yet.

Shell Shock.

I need Peace of Mind. Therefore, I am getting out of Manhattan and fleeing to Maryland this weekend.
 This week was accompanied by a racing mind and minimal sleep.
I'm tryna chill. ;)

BrakhaX2, you guys have stolen my heart. 
I appreciate you because you're simply amazing at what you do.

Don't Watch Me Blog.

I don't like when people look over my shoulder when I'm blogging. I never have, and I'm not sure I ever will. It makes me uncomfortable.

It's like getting dressed for the day or to go out. You don't want someone watching you get dressed. You don't wan't them to see you standing in your underwear, looking at your closet or in your drawers deciding what to put on. When you change your mind, you get undressed again, and change into something else. You don't want anyone watching this process, you wan't them to see the end result.

The Brains
The coolest thing I've been looking at lately are the Silent Picture pieces from my favorite photographry duo, BrakhaX2.
My mind was blown away, I'm sure yours will be too.
Enjoy a BrakhaX2 piece at the end of every entry.

Keep Moving Forward.

Sometimes you spend years fighting for something that you truly believe in.
You hold on because the good times outweigh the bad.

If it doesn't serve you anymore, you have to muster up every ounce of confidence in yourself...

&& You have to just keep moving forward.

Today had an early start to it due to the launch of MATERIAL GIRL!!!!

It's been amazing seeing an idea become a reality and an honor to have played a role since the beginning. My twitter page has pictures of me from the first ever MG lookbook. :)

They Said It Wouldn't Be EZ.

Everyone told me that it wouldn't be financially easy to live in Manhattan... they were right. Even though it is a personal issue, a lot of people understand. Money is tight, people. It's different from when I was rent-free living in Fashionaunta's house. I was able to spend money on luxury things, and in a sense, really didn't have to worry. But you pay a price when you choose to "flee from the nest" as DattyFatty would say.

It's interesting to me. I'm sitting here wondering when I won't have to worry about these things, when I'll be able to feel comfortable again. Sometimes it stresses me out, and sometimes I think about how one day I will be laughing about this, or sharing this entire experience later in my life with someone who is going through the same thing.

Talibobz has brought the term "Remember the time.." into my life. We use it on the regular. Even to remember something that happened minutes, hours, or even a day ago. I can't wait to remember this time and look back on how I made it, even though it was stressful. As stressful as it may be, I am living this life where I am always happy. I can truly say that as an individual.. I am happy. And I have my friends and family to thank for that. (Yes, West Coast, that includes you people too.)

I love the people in my life. They are the reason I am able to be where I am now. I am very lucky.. even when I'm broke as f$%k. But at least I have cute clothes.
