Tiffany Takes New York Fashion Week (NYFW) 2017

Hey there!

So I went to a couple shows at the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) in the space of two days! It was so much fun and so exciting, because it may be my first and last experience there!

I went on Septemeber 7th by myself and then on the 9th of September with my friend. The first day I wore a black wool dress and black matching boots completed with a denim jacket with fur.  I felt booujee, and I even went backstage for the Sachin + Babi fashion show to do an interview with the manicurist. I felt hella important.

I then went to Times Square and a wonderful woman was kind enough to take the picture below for me!

My friend and I went this past Saturday, and some of the shows were not as fun as I had expected, but the experience was excellent, nonetheless. I wore a black low-cut velvet dress with bright floral designs all over the fit. The look was completed with a black hat and heels (not pictured) to match. I felt BEAUTIFUL.

Look at Tiffany doing things and going places! Yes, I was so excited and hype! My next posts will be some of my favorite street styles from the NYFW followed by some of my favorite looks from the models, so be on the lookout for that!

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,

First Week of Senior Year!

Hey!

IMG_8849

I recently started my final year in college, and it has been a bit stressful for it to be the first week (I had some scheduling issues which is now fixed). I am, however, delighted that I have come so far, and will be closing a chapter in my life in a few months.

I attended Welcome Week at my school rocking a full ‘fro like it’s nobody’s business! I attended Temple Fest with the National Society of Leadership and Success (a leadership organization of which I am the Student President), with my team to promote the organization. It was a successful day, which was a great feeling to have!  

I wrote my first article for the Temple Tab (a student publication) for which I am now a writer about my journey from Jamaica to the US! Yeah me! You can check out that article here!

My internships are going great, I saw my friends, I am at peace, and I am on track to graduate! For what more could I ask? I will leave you with the awkward first day of school photo that everyone’s parents take until I write again.

I hope you had a wonderful week!

Until next time,

Stay Fabulous!

GRATEFUL

Hey You,

Today, I am so grateful for everything and everyone in my life. The good, the bad, the ugly, just everything. Today, I have completed 21 laps around the sun, and I couldn’t be happier with my progress in life. I am still living and learning.

I want to take the time to thank my beautiful mother who for some reason gave life to me and who have supported me throughout all my life and endeavors. People usually make their birthdays about themselves, and they have all rights to do just that as it is, in fact, their special day. This year I just want to shed some light and recognition her way because she more than deserves it.  

I would upload a photo of her, but she prefers not to be on my blog. Haha! But Happy Mother’s Day mother and I hope you enjoy it!

I will now stop with the sentiments, but I am sending a serious shout out to my mother and father. May the heavenly beings forever bless them.

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,
   -Tiffany♥

p.s. Sidenote y’all, Beyoncé released the photo of her twins earlier this morning, on my birthday! I’m shook…

Why DJ Khaled Is My Inspiration

Hey You,

As this beautiful month of July is my birth month, I want it to be all about positivity. I want it to be filled with positive energy and good vibes, so what better time to talk about someone who inspires me. As you can see above, yes, DJ Khaled is currently my inspiration. He is a happy person, and I endeavor to always be filled with happiness and have the grandeur to embrace and share my joy.

Here are a few reasons why DJ Khaled inspires me:

  • He is positivity

This man is always filled with energy and enthusiasm and just pure positive energy. I have never heard this man complain about anything at all. While I do understand that he is indeed human and has bad days, he has never put that out in public and, I respect him so much for his discipline. It is no wonder great things are happening for him, and the thought alone gets me excited. 

  • He is happy

I think that he never has a fully dull day because he surrounds himself with things and people who make him happy. He talks about everything he loves and admires, and he speaks of people in such a respectful manner one could never truly dislike him. 

  • He knows what he’s about/ Man is focused

This man is about his family. His son and his fiancée. He talks about them every day, as a matter of fact, every chance that he gets. He is also about his music which is his passion. I can only hope that I will find a few things that I am so passionate about to make it my livelihood, inspiration and daily joy. 

The man is blessed and not only regarding wealth, he appreciates everything in his life (his family, his connections) and his career.

I know some people might say, what is see is not necessarily what you get or not all that glitters is gold. But allow me to see gold even if it is just for a moment. Enjoy your day now and fill it with positivity. Have a wonderful July, you deserve it. Also, buy his album GRATEFUL. It is excellent!  #WildThoughts.

Side note: He is also always #GRATEFUL and his Snapchat stories are entertaining. Adding some light to my days.

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,
  –  Tiffany♥

Oh Hello Summer!

Hey You!, 

So, today marks the official start of summer, and that means quite a few things for my life. I am a summer baby (probably the best decision my mother probably made in her life) and I get to relax on my birthday. It is also fun because, during this season, absolutely anything can happen. I have quite a lot going on for me, and though my schedule is hectic, I will be posting on a somewhat regular basis. 

This what my summer looks like:

  • I’ve  got internships, got a lotta internships
    • So this year, I have four internships that take up all of my time but who am I to complain. Bless the heavenly beings and my soul. So I write for Glitter Magazine, Bronze Magazine and I also work for a Startup and a PR Firm.
  • Be happy season
    • For one, why not be happy and celebrate life despite the stifling heat I must suffer every summer. 
    • Go, Tiffany! It’s ya burf-day (well not yet but on July 14th)
      • I will be 21 years of age, a legal individual in the U.S. I have no plans right now, I never have plans for my birthday anyway. I mostly wear my birthday suit, lay in bed and do nothing every year. Kudos to me right… hmm
  • Leisure/Festival
    • I really wanted to travel this summer but so goes the life of a broke college student.  However, there are quite a few festivals happening in and around the Philadelphia area, so I shall be keeping myself occupied and make it my own little vacation. 
  • Planning for next year
    • I am planning for my final year in school. I am a busy student, so I will need to get my life together. I have a double major, a minor and a certificate on which I am working. Thankfully I have completed all the requirements for one of the majors already so, that’s one less thing about which I may worry.

I  hope you will have a better summer than I plan for myself. Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,
   – Tiffany♥

My Weird Quirks

Day 27

Hey You,

I have weird habits/quirks that I wanted to share so I don’t feel so alone in my weird little world of… well… Tiffany. I cannot be the only person with these quirks, so I just want to make sure!

Here goes nothing!

  • I only write with black ink pens.
  • My surroundings are always clean (wherever I eat, study or work), except my bedroom.
    • This is because it is my sanctuary and it is the only place I get to be a slob and let loose so I enjoy it always. My room is always clean, don’t get me wrong but my bed always have books or clothes on it. This annoys my mother! 🙂
  • I have when my foods touch (except burgers).
    • I think I would annoy my company if I eat my burger layer by layers so I don’t.
    • I love Chipotle but this is one of the reasons why I also don’t like Chipotle. Everything. Touches.
    • I will take the time to pick apart my food and then eat everything separately.
  • My bedroom door must always be closed (day, night, cold, hot, I really don’t care, close my door when you leave my room).
  • My mouth and feet must always be in motion.
    • I always have gum or something to eat and I bounce my feet, which I find quite annoying when others do it. How hypocritical of me!
  • Whenever I give advice I always end by saying “but what do I know.” This way you take my advice at your own risk.
  • I like when everything is even except seven which is my lucky number.
  • Before I leave my house, I must always test the weather for the days. I do this by poking my naked right leg outside and it helps me when deciding how to dress.

Yes, I am a weird child. Believe me, I know. What are some of your weird habits?

Until next time…

Stay Fabulous,

#Beautiful… The few days I felt like this. 

Hey, You!

Day 26| 31 Days of January Blog Challenge

Welcome back (if you care of course, and if you are new welcome!). It has been a while, and I have been busy with school so I have not been posting as religiously as I’d like. However, school is out, and I gave myself a one week break which I deserved, but that is now over.

I did not complete the January blog challenge, but here I am with an update to do just that. This will be a series of pictures of my beautiful moments so far this year! BTW, the above pic was taken at a school event, and I made that flower crown of which I am so proud.

I look like a blackberry in these photos, but it was a beautiful day. I was at an induction ceremony. #melaninbaby

I took this picture in Subway. No filter, pure sunlight, and my melanin is popping! Peep my glow though. #YassTiffany #FabulousTiffany #whenthesunlighthityouright

I had nothing to do during my little break, so naturally, I bleached my hair, as I always do! This was me attending a retirement party. #FabulousAF

IMG_2849In this photo, I was over the moon because I returned home from school after a particularly droopy day at school and my niece simply looked and me and said “Aunty Tiffany, yuh know seh yuh pretty? [did you know you are pretty?], and my spirit rose to the heavens. She then proceeded to give me a mini photo shoot and the photos were great. I slept on a cloud that night too.

P.S. She is five years old so as you can see, she has great eyes and even more talent. #FabulousTiffany #HappyAunt

I worked at a school event and one of my fellow planners took this photo for me!

Went to a beautiful formal event and this picture makes me look like I have a butt.

I just want to shed some light on my growing afro! ‘Brows are on fleek too!

So, that’s about it. Not bad at all!
