1. The Weeknd ft. Jhene Aiko and SchoolBoy Q

    Barclays Center (September 19th)

    And let me tell you the smell of weed floating around in that venue, haha!! Every artist said something about smelling it from the stage. The venue was all foggy and smokey inside. Well if you’re going to smoke it up might as well do it during The Weeknd’s concert, perfect place for it haha.

    *We had upper level seating tickets. We got moved to platform seats (which was closer to the stage!). The luck that my friend Tracy has in certain situations, #Godhasherback*

     

  2. whosolow said: WASSUP :), ME AND MY GIRL STARTING A NEW BRAND AND WERE LOOKING TO WORK WITH DOPE DESIGNERS. I LIKE YOUR STYLE AND THINK WE CAN MAKE SOME AWESOME PIECES/ DO GOOD WORK TOGETHER. IF YOURE INTERESTED HIT ME BACK AND ILL WE'LL TALK FURTHER. HAVE A GOOD DAY.

    Sounds like a good opportunity, but I started school and my internship so I won’t be able to have time for anything else at the moment. But thank you for the offer :)

     
  3. Over the Summer I was in the global internship program for Gap/Banana Republic team. I was in the Fabric and Trims Research Development. What an amazing 8 weeks it was (and it was paid!). Having only a design background, I wanted to intern somewhere related to design but learn something completely different; which was textiles. You have know idea how important it is to learn about fabrics, cost, and how to communicate with vendors when it comes to fashion design. So I took this opportunity and came in with an open mind and was ready absorb any new information that came my way.

    We had weekly speaker series from different employees from Gap and was assigned a project to complete during the internship program. All the interns were split into groups and were given the Innovation project. Which was basically fill the “White Space” at Gap. They wanted us to create a brand or concept that Gap is missing and should have in their stores. (Fun fact: GapFit brand actually started from the innovation project) Being involved in this project taught me what to design in apparel and accessories, and making sure it sells. But also on merchandising, marketing, social media, and interior design layout. We presented in front of the designers, production team, merchandisers, and the CEO and CFO of Gap (…talk about nerve-racking)

    This is what most of my Summer time was spent….and I am more than ready to start my FINAL year at FIT…..meaning portfolio and senior collection a.k.a Bye bye to my social life!

    Thank you for reading the post :)

    Yea it gets harder as we get older, but I think going through this at such a young age gave us so much strength and wisdom :)

     
  5. Paint the Town Red

    This is my go-to-look for a night out in the city. I have switched from black eyeliner to blue. (Thank you Ipsy for opening my eyes to this!) Navy blue really enhances the color and shape my eyes. AND I HAVE FINALLY FOUND THE PERFECT RED! (bless jesus!) Ladies, finding the right shade of red for your face and skin complexion is difficult, and when you do find the ‘right one’…don’t let it go!

    Life Update:  I have been neglecting this blog for so long…either being busy finishing the semester of school, taking a mini-break from the world and getting some alone time, and now being a summer intern for Gap in their fabrics and trims department. (and also the fact I have been extremely lazy to post). I have been a busy bee; working Mon-Friday 9-6 is exhausting!! I don’t know how people do it! But I am enjoying my internship and the people are the sweetest. It’s such an amazing opportunity to work for Gap, and learn about all the different departments and how they produce things. The benefits are pretty good too!

    As for my makeup I am wearing:

    Chella Blue Eyeliner: Indigo Blue

    Sephora Nano Lip Liner: Real Red

    NYX Matte Lipstick: Perfect Red

    topped with Sephora Cream Lip Stain: Always Red (this is amazing! Goes on as a gloss, and dries as a matte. I also have it in the color ‘Endless Purple’ seen on a past post)
