Yesterday I launched a new series for my job (job? yes–I have a job! more on it later—I’m too busy working). It is called “How I Made It” and it profiles Black women who have made it in the fashion and beauty industry. Our first episode features Mikki Taylor, former Beauty & Cover Editor for […]

In case you didn’t notice, I am in the middle of a redesign or reorganization of my blog. After a year or more of collecting dust with a very lazily-modified Thesis theme (basically, I just changed the link colors), I decided I needed to make my website a little bit more personal. So, this is […]

I’ve been pretty quiet for the last 3 months or so because I am trying to figure out what is going on with my life. I know, I’m deep with these blog thoughts on a Friday morning, right? The truth is, I often ask one of my best friends what she’s doing with her life […]

I know it’s been a while since I last blogged, especially regularly. Most of that has to do with my bright idea that I would wait for the new Movable Type 5 to be released so I could have an excuse to migrate my blog to a new directory (which I did) and set up […]

I wrote a piece for Golden (a Clutch Magazine blog) this week, on the joys (and perils) of loving your work. Loving your Work: A Booby Trap? Check it out if you just can’t get enough of me. I will probably write some more pieces for Golden later, as well. You should also stick around […]

It has been almost two months since I last blogged. I almost thought about putting up a hiatus post…but I was too busy to think about that. My life in the past two months: 1. Went to SXSW. Spoke on the panel moderated by the fabulous Denise Jacobs. Did a lot of napping and working […]

Moving East

January 27, 2009

in Personal

I finally decided to make the move to New York. I know I have spent some time here lamenting about a move to NYC. I’ve been toying with the idea for over a year now, but I never really created a plan because I was scared (I don’t like change). I slowly relieved myself of […]

Life is moving along well in the world of running my own business. Between working with my clients, managing the business side of the business, and launching a startup, my schedule is crazy. I have evaded a few panic attacks the past few weeks, which is good because they wouldn’t have been worth it. I […]
