I love Sequin.

Hey guys!

What's new?  Nothing too new with me.  I've been enjoying these trips to NYC, and am understanding the importance of networking with each established relationship..  Easter was fun, it was great to be with the fam as usual!  It was also my cousin's bday and he turned 20.  I'm still trying to wrap my head around that!!  Of course, the food hit the spot: grilled fish, stuffed oysters, pork, beef ribs, mac & cheese, collards, string beans, dinner rolls, etc etc.  It was so bomb!  I was too full to even eat dessert, but I made myself eat a few bites of the delicious homemade cheesecake my aunt made!  The weather was beautiful, it reached 86 degrees, but did end with a huge storm lol.

I've been freestyling with my hair lately, and I am really liking how it's been turning out!

I'm loving this floral sequined top from ASOS






My birthday is this weekend, May 1st, and I have no idea what I'm doing.  One of my bff's Sasha informed me that dinner was involved with "other people," I guess meaning a group, but I have no idea where.  So I guess I'm just doing as I'm told.  I'm pretty excited.  I love food, and all I really want to do for my bday is to get a mani/pedi and to wear something cute  for dinner of course! 




I was also officially featured (for the first time ever) by the lovely Folake of Style Pantry.  Her site and her style are both AMAZING and I am so honored to be featured on her site!  Please check it out here! :)

The Weeknd

This weekend consisted of a lot of food, a lot of laughs, and a lot of fun :D

If you follow me on twitter, you know that I tweeted about how I desperately wanted a leather skirt.  I was concerned because I wanted to rock one before it got too hot outside (but at this rate, who knows if the weather will ever warm up).  I brought it up to my mom and two seconds later she busted out with a leather skirt, the one I happen to be wearing in this post lol.  And to think I knew of every article that is in her closet!  Tsk tsk tsk.
It was extremely windy outside, we've been having some crazy weather on the East Coast.
When I bought this shirt a few months ago, it didn't fit at all.  Now it does. #progress


This is my second attempt at doing a heatless roller-set (I let my hair air dry).  I like how it turned out this time.  I tried to channel Dorothy Dandridge, rather than looking like I had on Jennifer Hudson's wig from Dreamgirls pictured in this post.

As you know, my friend Shawna visited me this weekend so I played host/tour guide and showed her around my city!  She along with the besties all had a good ole time.

We ate.
And chilled.

Like my new purse?  I'm surprised I bought it because I don't like to carry them, but this one was too cute!  It's from Target! 

Then we ate some more...



... And some more!


I should be ashamed of the amount I consumed this weekend, but it felt good at the time!  I'm currently struggling (my body isn't taking it well haha), but hey, things happen.

I'm headed to NYC again this morning for another meeting.  I'll speak on it if anything comes from it (hopefully)!

In.Why.See

I find it hard to blog when I don't have any official updates or exciting news to share.  But that's life.  Not every day is an exciting one, and I guess that will push me to be more creative with my posts, right?  Anywho, as you know, I took a sojourn in NYC last weekend.  I was there for a meeting for potential job opps.  I was able to do a bit of networking and am meeting with someone from Universal Music Group sometime in the next week or so.  So we'll see...

In other news, my lovely friend Shawna is planning to come stay with me this weekend from the city, and I'm so excited as I have the whole weekend planned!  I really want to make an itinerary (more so for myself than her), but I'm stopping myself from doing so.  I know.  A LOT.  No worries, I'll be taking loads of pics to make up for the lack of outfit pics from the last two posts.  Thanks for being patient guys!  xo

Here are the pics I took whilst in the city:



I always hit that Dean & Deluca for a quick bite to eat


The lovely Shawna

She lives in Central Park West :)

"Always hold the pole on a moving train." I found this hilarious.  I feel bad for that lady, she was doing her best to act like she didn't notice me taking pictures in her direction.

I walked around by myself for a little bit, vibin to Frank Ocean.  Good stuff.






This is actually not chalk, but sand.  He was dropping it from his hand.  Pretty talented!
The meeting was with a family friend, we met at Republic in Union Square.  
I didn't want the person I met with to think I was a creep, so I snuck and took a pic while he was in the restroom hehe

I got to reunite with my lovely friend Arianna whom I haven't seen in like 4 years!  I also got the meet the lovely Anael, after talking through twitter for like... Years!  lol.  They're so fab, love you guys! xo
They both blog and tweet like I!
Ari: twitter & tumblr
Anael: twitter & tumblr

I had the pleasure of meeting up with my boo David as well! He's on twitter too! 
I had a pounding headache so I didn't drink anything...



The next morning I met Shawna at work for a complimentary breakfast (lol), then headed home!

Overall, it was a pretty fun trip, and I'll be back for another meeting soon.  I'm keeping the faith as usual! 

My birthday is coming up in about 2 weeks, and I'm trying to figure out what to do... Something lowkey...

I am also having so much fun with the facebook page!  I'm loving the interaction!  Join me here.

Inspiration.

This weather has been such a drag (RuPaul reference)!!  But all I ask is it be nice on my birthday weekend.  I mean, it's not for another few weeks, but I'm speaking it into existence ahead of time.  That is all I want! lol

Since my official decision to choose NYC vs. LA, I've been applying for full-time jobs in NYC for the past few days intensely... All I can do is apply and follow-up until I get that interview k!  I will not give up!

Besides that, same routine... Work, working out, socializing on social media venues lol... Oh and I made the Facebook Page.  I hope you like it... LITERALLY.. (leaving the link below)!!

I've also been trying to "juice" more to get my daily servings of fruits and veggies.  I make good juice ya'll!  I can make kale, broccoli, apples, & carrots taste delightful!


The juicer actually does all the work, but hey, I come up with some pretty cool combos!


No outfit post today, but next post will definitely include one :)  I wanted to add some photos that have been giving me life lately:

I'm gna rock the natural hair all summah long baby!
I really want to do dye my hair, but I'm a wuss!
I love me some Julia Styles and I think this top is so awesome haha.  I figure this photo was taken in the late 1990's.
Willy Cartier.  Get to know him.
My mother's HS graduation photo.  She didn't smile because she had braces LOL!  I'm going to grow my hair this large one day!
I really want to try this hairstyle.  It looks hott on her!

I've also been obsessing over gel manicures.  It is a polish that can be applied on your natural nail that is dried by a UV light in like 5 minutes.  And it lasts for a good 2 weeks!  I only get it done every 2 weeks because my nails grow out by then.  Here's a pic of how bomb it looks, PLEASE EXCUSE THE ASH:




Discoveries:
-gel manicures (as discussed).  Uh-mazing.
-gaudy jewelry (I'm loving statement fashion jewelry pieces more and more each day).
-Blogger makes your pictures look like ish and grainy and gross.  I will be uploading via Photobucket from here on out.
-making short-term goals keep me hungry and always striving to achieve something greater than myself.
-I want to change my banner and my whole blog layout, so work with me here while I get it together lol
