 Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a great Tuesday so far. As you can see, I am feeling a tad better. Cold medicine is a wonderful thing :) I am also just feeling happy in general. I don't know what's gotten into me, but whatever it is, I love it! Maybe it's because I made two purchases online today. I decided not to get the wedges. I just feel like I have so many pairs of shoes, I can hold off on getting wedges because I am sure I will find some in Florida somewhere lol. I did check out Charlotte Russe's website and got two striped pencil mini skirts for $5 each. I mean who can turn down $5 skirts? Not me lol.
 So, I decided to actually pair this sweater with a skirt. I usually wear this with leggings or jeans, but it's a little warmer. I love how it turned out. The skirt I got on sale for $5 at Wet Seal. It's a great place to get some trendy pieces on sale. Their sales are my fave, I have a preferred customer card there :) The purse you may recognize. This was my first DIY studding project. I purchased the bag from Forever 21 and at first, I liked it plain. But once I got my studding kit, I decided to make it a little more "rocker glam". It took me a couple hours but I was so proud. I usually wear this to run errands or go out to eat with friends. Oh and of course shopping, cause I need my hands free to hold my shopping bags. The hat actually belonged to my grandfather (RIP). He has a white one that I also have. He was such a dapper man and a gentleman. He passed in 2001, and life's been rocky for myself and my mom since. But I think we are slowly becoming happier :)
 You know something interesting? My mom told me I could be a model. She said that I could do plus size modeling, especially because my face is "unique". I looked at her like she had two heads and a tail. I mean, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind being in the plus size fashion industry, since according to modeling sizes, I am plus size. But I just don't think it's a lane that I could participate in. It's funny how I can be self-conscious yet I come on here and post my outfit posts almost everyday lol. I just always saw myself doing styling and not wearing the actual clothes someone else styled. Who knows, this year is full of surprises lately.
 I am sorry for posting so much music from Janelle Monae, but she has been speaking to me musically since the new year started. I feel like her music just inspires me to get up and do what I need to do. Plus, who doesn't love a person who thinks outside of the box. She's like the female version of Outkast, and we need alternative R&B and Hip Hop to make people step up their game. Mainstream or not, I listen to a lot of different music. One day it's Nirvana, the next it's ROX, then it's Lil Wayne, or even Adele. If you have any underground artists that you love, leave a comment with their name and I will definitely check it out. 
 I am going to start working on making inspiration boards from the S/S 2011 collections that I love. I tried to do posts for all, but it just didn't work out as well. I wasn't really focused last year, but this time, I plan on having these looks prepared and ready so every Friday post will be a Runway My Way post :) Why not have it start in the beginning of the year, right? I will also be doing the same for Pre-Fall 2011 as well. I hope everyone comes back to check that out. I will also be doing a Blogger of the Month section starting in February. I will be featuring different up and coming bloggers because we are all a great community and should help each other promote right? I am not sure who I will choose yet, or if they will even accept the offer, but hopefully, it will work out well.
 Thanks for checking out the posts, as well as my other posts. I love you all a lot, and if you have any questions, you can leave a comment or if it's personal or an inquiry about my services, I have my email listed on the sidebar :) Again, thanks for the support and I will see you all later!
