About Me: I was born and raised in NYC and am a daughter to a mixed race marriage. I am now the proud mama of a baby boy named Fox. Life has such different meaning for me now; I am so humbled by motherhood. I taught for 7 years in private, public, and charter schools through out the 5 boroughs and then decided, I wanted to explore my creativity more, which led me to copywriting and advertising. I decided that a traditional advertising career where others dictate whether your writing is "good" or "bad" was not what would fill my creativity cup, so I started blogging about fashion and lifestyle and I've never been happier, more fulfilled, more me.
Oh, I also have two rescue mutts named Olive and Goose and an Instagram husband. I'm a lucky gal.
