Neiman Marcus CUSP Fashion Show and Panel

Hello guys! I hope you all are doing well! Thanks again for reading ;) Today, I am sharing thanks and gratitude once again to Neiman Marcus for allowing me the honor of attending as a VIP guest to their CUSP fashion show and panel in early April.

This was very nice in my o

The Sunset Kings Collaborate with T-Pain's Protege Miu

 The pop sensation from Haiti met The Sunset Kings frontman at CDBaby’s DIY Music Conference in Chicago last September where they learned from industry staples such as music blogger and lifestylist Ari Herstand, rock photographer Becky Yee, and Patreon founder Jack Conte. David, Miu’s manager, says about The Sunset Kings, “There are plenty of musicians we met in Chicago, but what we like about The Sunset Kings is they are authentic.  They’re not trying to prove anything to anybody.” The budding partnership continued long-distance; while The Sunset Kings continue to embed themselves as active contributors to the Boston arts community with their release of “Rose-Tinted Raybans” ( ), Miu’s international career has grown steadily as crowds in Miami and New York City begin to match her audience in Port-au-Prince. Now Hear This Entertainment’s feature of Miu attributes her success not only to her work ethic and ambition but on the fact that she i
