Simply Stylist Sunday

Simply Stylist was founded in 2009 and since then there have been events in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. The company provides tools and tips from a panel of industry experts to those interested in fashion, styling, and beauty and I was one of them.

Let’s BRAG about it


On Thursday, I was invited to attend the B.R.A.G Annual Scholarship & Awards Gala at the Park Avenue Armory. Now some may not be familiar with the non-profit organization that stands for Black Retail Action Group (BRAG) that prepares and educates professionals, entrepreneurs and students of color for executive leadership in retail, fashion and related industries. The gala was heavily attended by CEOs, VPs and students all under the same roof supporting one another even myself a former BRAG scholar. I joined the organization the summer of 2006 and now nine years later I am covering it. Read below for the past and present experience of an alumni.



Dream Trip – Euro Already Know

I think what makes our generation so different from our parents is our quest for new things, new journeys and new experiences! Hence why Instagram is so popular, it broadens our horizon and shows places we wouldn’t have imagine and then we seek out to explore for ourselves. So I did just that, well with the company of my friends, we decided to take another girls trip but instead of somewhere tropical we set out for Europe for ten days! We decided upon cities like Milan, London and Paris in that order. If you’re like me and always dreamt of trips like these but never thought it would be possible then check out my journey! (more…)
