Latino Fashion Week Chicago 2016!

Hey guys! I hope all is well. Thanks for reading! Today, I am writing you about my amazing experience at Latino Fashion Week 2016. Obviously, I owe a huge thank you to the people and staff at LFW for allowing me to enjoy the event as VIP/Media, as well as gifting me and my assistant VIP packages. That was a priviledge. Just a quick exerpt from the website (linked below) explaining what Latino Fashion Week is: " Latino Fashion Week® was created to support the talent of local, national and internatio nal Latino designers and is the premier resource institutio n for those in the Latino Fashion Industry. By Latinos, For Everyone." Because this event was a three day event, I unfortunately was not able to attend the entire thing. But, I did get to attend the last two days where I had a blast! The entire ambiance of Latin culture mixed with high end fashion was the bomb indeed. The food that was served to us was great. There was a wide variety of meats, sides and drinks so t

How I Started Working In Television As a Cable TV Show Host!

Hi guys! I hope you guys are doing quite well! I certainly am having a pretty good day today. Let's cut to the chase with today's post as I am currently preparing to leave to cover another event!  I get a lot of people asking me how I got into television and on camera media action. Well, that my friends is a HUGE thank you that I owe to Miss Felcia Apprey and Mr. Abdul from Africa International House, as well as the staff at CAN TV! As you all know, I have been working in the fluid industry of journalism for quite some time. If you have been following my blog since its beginning in 2011, you know that writing has always been and will always be a die hard passion of mine. However, I never thought that expressing my thoughts and opinions in front of a camera would be my coupled medium next to the paper and pen or in this case keyboard. Yet, when I got a call from Miss Felicia, whom I had already been working with on various other projects in terms of events and blogging, as

African Festival of The Arts 2016!

Hey guys! I hope you are all doing great! I am coming to you guys with a post that is long overdue! This is a thank you post to the staff and vendors from the 2016 African Festival of The Arts. I was honored to be able to attend some of the festival as media. Although I was only able to attend a portion of the 4 day event, I had an amazing time. A huge shout out to Africa International House and Miss Felicia Apprey for the opportunity. I'm not going to ramble on into too much detail with this post because if I went into detail about all of the awesome vendors and models that I came across during this event, it would fill an entire book! So instead, I took the time to link below a lot of the vendors and participants who stood out to me. And, I am going to encourage you to not only check them out but to follow them on social media and perhaps even make a purchase! Enjoy the photos and the links. Thanks for reading guys!

Bellina Caetano and Aloe Brazil Fashion Party

Hi guys! I hope you are doing awesome! Today, I am coming at you guys with a super quick post about my lovely experience at the Bellina Caetano fashion party back in September! I had a very nice time and would love to give a special thank you to not only to the hosts, Bella July and Bete Feliciano, but to Shay James whom invited me to attend alongside her as press. I very much appreciate it. The event featured the vibrant and vivacious jewelry accessory collection from native Brazillian designer, Bella July. Her creations are quite wearable and affordable. By using high quality materials, she creates the illusion of a million dollar jewelry set at a minimal price point. For the longevity and fashion forwardness of her collection, she gives your average girl a chance to rock a celebrity's accessories! Bete Feliciano gives you amazing athletic wear at very reasonable price points! She makes it a point to use materials that are not only super durable so that you can use them in
