I recently teamed up with my good friends over at Bellen Brand for a mini editorial. To see how I personally style my Bellen Brand pieces, visit their website, sign up for their E-blasts, and also here on my blog after the jump!
Took a quick trip to NYC & New Jersey (for the first time) for Black Girls Rock Awards this past week!
Styling Michelle Mitchenor as she hosted the red carpet- interviewing so many LEGENDARY women was such an honorable experience to witness. From Tracee Ellis Ross, to Cicely Tyson, Shonda Rhimes, Gladys Knight, & Rihanna to name a few....the energy was through the roof! Followed by an after party with Erykah Badu spinning, partying with women I admire!...I couldn't have asked for more. It was such a dope experience to hear all of these successful women speak their truths. I left there with inspiration at an all time high to say the least...
After my work was done, I hit up my favorite spots in NYC, stopped by VOGUE to have lunch with a girl friend, visited a few museums, parties, and of course tried to catch up with all of my NYC homies but there is never enough time for everyone! (womp)
But before I left, I made sure to hit up DUMBO in Brooklyn and while doing so, I got some cool shots just for my blog.
Hope you like!
After the jump...
I was recently in France to attend Paris Fashion Week Mens. I was invited to a few shows + presentations so I made a trip of it! Given it was my first time, I made sure to also do a ton of exploring and touring the city...and the best part of it all was being alone! I learned that traveling alone internationally is NOT the same as traveling alone domestic. My solo experiences in Europe were a reflection of my personal interests and open spirit...I think I was more intrigued by the beauty and architecture than I was with Fashion Week!
Aside from the shows and partying til 6am every night (Parisians go HARD!), I shopped on Rue Saint-Honore, Place Vendome, Galeries Lafayette, visited Musee du Louvre (finally saw Mona Lisa), Palais de Tokyo (Andy Warhol Exibit), enjoyed the amazing cabaret show 'The Crazy Horse', and obviously spent some time at the Eiffel Tower taking a trillion touristy photos....
those were the highlights of my trip & that pretty much sums up my time in Paris!
I spent four days in Portland, Oregon for a pinch of business and a dash of pleasure! Meetings with Nike, meeting up with new friends, riding bikes, LOTS of dining (Portland has thee best eateries!), viewing 'Beasts of No Nation' with Madonna, and wrapping it up with a personal trip to her 'Rebel Heart' tour.
The Wednesday grind...ripping & running in the city wearing my jersey from my friends over at 10BR. They stay keeping me laced with goodies! Super comfy & sporty, and rich.
