Liebster Award

I was nominated by Louis Moje for the Liebster award and I am happy to participate. I'm required to answer 11 questions and state 11 facts about myself lol. It's funny because I've always wanted to do this when I started my blog but I tend to forget or maybe its just pure laziness lol. Anyway, this should be fun! :)

  •  Shopping or Traveling?

I love doing both but I don't travel that much so I'll say shopping :)
  • One place you'd love to visit?

     I would LOVE to name so many places. Jamaica of course but wait, I'd love to visit Egypt too lol

  • Any special future plans for your blog?
Cant say yet! 
  • What do you like to do during your free time?
           *Le Sigh* SLEEP!!! , shop, and go out with my awesome friends.
  • If you could have one tangible thing, what would it be?
MONEY! Money makes the world go 'round *rihanna voice*
  • What brand would you say describes your personal style?
Mmm...I can't really say because i'm not into brand names. However, my favorite places to shop at are nastygal, romwe, asos, dollskill to name a few. They all have a little bit of edge, street wear, grunge, rocker-ish. It could be sophisticated, etc if that answered the question lol. My style is all over the place, when it comes to fashion, i'm VERY versatile and BOLD.
  • When did you start blogging?
Oct. 26th, 2012.
  • Have you ever taken a break from blogging? If yes, why?
Not necessarily a "break". I have a life, well i'm guessing everyone does. I've got a lot going on plus i'm in school. So sometimes I do forget I have a blog and then I realize "shit, I haven't posted in a while" lol
  • At what point (# of followers, Likes, unique visitors) would you say your blog is well established?

At least when it reaches a 100,000 views lol like my tumblr. My tumblr should be 200,000+ views and more than 800 followers. I just started this blog so I'm trying to be patient. I have a lot of plans this year for my blog so we'll see ;)

  • Ask & Answer a question about yourself that you wished I asked you?
Nothing really lol.
  • What outlets (Facebook, Instagram, etc) do you use to publicize your blog?

Facebook, other fashion blogs/sites, twitter and tumblr. I'm getting an instagram soon which would definitely help.

There are a lot more but I'll stick to just 11 facts. This was definitely a long post. I hope I didn't bore anyone but stay tuned for more posts!!!!

Givenchy Inspired

Omg!!! So I've been dying to create this post, it's about time. I was definitely inspired by the Givenchy fall collection (necklace) 2008. It has been worn by some Givenchy Models on the runway, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and the fashion icon Rihanna, etc. I thought I could create my own look and pull it off, although I didn't wear as many gold chains as needed. I'm a big fan of chain necklaces in general so I went in my jewelry box, found some and put them all together. Some were single necklaces and others were link necklaces. Either way, don't be scared to wear as many if you're bold enough. It's really a simple outfit but the chain(s) really is/are the focal point. Anyway, enjoy this post and don't forget to leave your comments :)
A big thank you to my photographer and friend (Adaeze) for these dope pictures. She taught me all these gansta poses as well lol. Have a lovely weekend everyone!!!
