You guys I am more than honored and touched at the response from my Teen Vogue mock interview ! I have seen all of the comments and I will try to respond today, but I have limited access to my blog after 5 pm. I am still battling hateration and holleration from my internet access to my blog from my dancerie (home). Pray for my Wi-Fi connection y'all.Any who, when I started this blog I never imagined it would become what it is becoming. It's more than fashion and more than a blog; it is becoming a hub of inspiration served by an awkward and extra (hence the post title) fashion lover (me).

"This young lady has taken the blog world by storm and no less she has done it remotely from the rural lands of North Carolina."
"Okay ladies now let's get in formation!" -me talking to my curls
This was the second look I shot in the cold and rain on Saturday and my hair was struggling to keep it together, it seemed.Honestly looking at these pics I like the frizz on my curls.It's like a cute little curly mop.
*Sidenote: Am I giving Sherry Lewis from Lambchop vibes?! lol I think so, and I love it!
Mondays, am I right? My mood is on straight Garfield minus the lasagna. I don't want to bore you with the details but let's just say I didn't make it in to work today and the backseat of my whip is covered in maple syrup. Kids....yea-- over them!
My Saturday ,aka my only day to shoot,started off very Monday-ey.I woke up to a Monsoon outside my window.Funny, I don't remember pulling out the Jumanji board game , but I digress.
Moms be like: "Now when we get in this store, you betta not ask for nothing! We got snacks at home!"
The 'mean mom mug' pictured below is a universal glare felt by all children worldwide in the depths of their souls, before they enter the marketplace, grocery store, gas station, Wal-Mart, and any damn store.My grandmother gave this look to my mom, my mom gave it to me, and now (in the spirit of tradition) I give my daughter this same look.
"No, you can not have no damn candy.You just ate!"
"The joy of dressing is an art"-John Galliano
I am an artist, and I am sensitive about my shit okay?!
Are you there God? It's me, Caribbean Cowgirl.If you don't know this reference(Google Judy Blume), kindly refrain from clicking the 'read more' link lol. I'm kidding by the way. Also, I would like to add that God would know me as Caribbean Cowgirl as an all knowing being and presence I am quite sure my blog is on the radar. Speaking of which, "God, can you tell your friends to check out my blog and tell their friends as well? Amen" *takes a sigh of relief.
It's Friday and I am ready to get down! Well, I am lying.I ready to get up from this work chair (I'm blogging from the job again...ssshh) and buy makeup.I just restocked my foundation only to realize how it is soooo not my color anymore.I resemble an oompa loopa, but it a tad bit cuter way and an inch or two taller.I just look really orange right now.I get fairly light in the winter time.Speaking of winter, I just found out we are expecting snow this weekend *laments in Spring 2017 collections.
"I'm every woman.
It's all in me.
Anything you want done baby,
I'll do it naturalllllyy!" -Whitney Houston
If you didn't know this song was originally sung by Chaka Khan. However you may have noticed, Whit (God rest her soul), shouts her out and during the "im every woman" run at the end. This is what sisterhood and support in the music industry looks like! Queens recognize queens and uplift them regardless of the arena. Should I proceed to discuss the Remy Ma and Nicki situation? Not really, no. That is what you call a battle of the words by two lyricists. What I should bring up is the fact that Nicki Minaj came on the scene drenched in Lil Kim in almost everyway *sips tea and looks into the Hip Hop Hooray distance.I won't bring that up either, but my point is that we as women should always keep each other lifted up and revere each other.
"Even if it makes others uncomfortable, I will love who I am"- Janelle Monae, Q.U.E.E.N.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
