So if you haven't had a chance to read my latest IG posts (cuz so many just like the pic and keep scrolling) I AM PREGNANT! I am with child yall! I know it may sound like a surprise to some because I never really shared that I may want another child.The funny thing is I did, eventually lol.This pregnancy was not planned...by me for the most part lol.It takes two to get knocked up and apparently my husband was low key scheming on ya Caribbean cowgirl.
So where have I been? What I been doing all week?
Well let’s see, I almost passed out ay work found out I’m on the dehydrated tip.Me and the heat aren’t getting along too well.For this reason I am laying low on the blog for a bit, sorry.
You know what they say, all is fair in love in photography (no one says that I think).I am usually going on and on about myself in posts, but today consider the visuals as a part of an artist showcase as I narrate (in my Morgan Freeman voice) the great person behind each photograph of this post and every one of my posts.I will also hit on our rocky work relationship and how it always seems to come together.If you haven’t noticed I kinda post,well a lot.There is a lot of work that goes into staging each look (well kinda sorta) so for those who have been asking , here ya go.
Do you love Zara, but feel like the prices are getting a lil too much ? Are you too impatient waiting for their sales? Well join the cub, sis! You are far from alone.For far too long Zara has been harassing my pockets with their tempting prints, and street style silhouttes.Of course they have had me in their grips for far too long and I am sick of it.I found a way out from my fashion /high fashion knockoff dependency of them and into a lower priced street style "inspired' deal of sorts.
You know the old saying 'if at first you don't succeed, try again.' Persistence and patience are the key they said.When I tell you patience is a virtue, that is an understatement.
Have you noticed you IG isn’t poppington like it used to? Are you going hard on the hashtags and it’s not working? Do you feel like you are in IG jail? Well you are not alone. Your fears are valid folks. Instagram is acting brand new.

Last week had some pretty awesome moments for me! I got featured on some pretty large pages: Dark and Lovely, Midget Giraffe, Shop Zuvva, ,Asoebiafrica, and Asoebibella. I got more collaboration requests and the blog was seeing more numbers than it has ever seen. I was geeked for Saturday because I was shooting for the 1st time with a new photographer at the beach. I was up until 12 trying to prep my blog looks , clean my house, and prep my hair. I had to be at 4:45 am to do my makeup and get my family on the road by 6.The excitement push the fatigue into an afterthought.
I know Mothers Day was Sunday , but I am very unorthodox in my means of celebrating.Todays post is all about mom’s who I love , admire and inspire me.Can you tell which Mega Mogul Mommy inspired this look? I will give you a hint.IT’S BEYONCE!
Humping on this humpday…barely.These weeks are literally dragging by, but in fast motion. Does that even make sense? Lol So what about Monday’s post? Let me explain.I was tired.I had a busy weekend and I am learning that life exists outside of the blog.One of my besties graduated with her nursing degree so Saturday I was kicking back with her and my other besties and still had to find time to shoot. With summer rolling around the corner, there was no better idea than shooting my cool summer kickback look at my friend’s kickback/grad party.
So if you had a chance to read my last post I was heading out to Atlanta.Well I am just too hype to tell you about everything that went down. It got off to a rocky start due to some oldhead at the airport giving hubs a hard time about finding parking and threatening him with a parking ticket. By the time we checked our bags we were too late for our flight (insert expletives here) , which put us on stand by.We were to be in the A at 8:40 am and didn’t get there til 5pm.Honestly, by the time I got there and was greeted by my bestie all was right in the world!
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
