Day 16: Jessica Catalano

I met Jess the same place that I met art. Trying to escape the horror that is the International Baccalaureate program at Coral Reef Senior High, I opted for IB ART instead of Psych, which would have been more pressure and mental torture, (plus in art we got free sketchbooks!) I figured it couldn’t be…

Day 15: Imani K Simmons

Everybody meet superwoman. One of those people that can wear 10,000 hats, handle a million things, walk through fire even, yet stay 100% calm, in the process gaining the trust and confidence of those around them. We may have met her as YesJulz trusted sidekick, but she has been establishing her career well before, and…

Day has 14: Ashley Courtney

I met Ash on the set of the Miami Girls Redefined shoot curated by Cat Lantigua. Idk how Cat selected us, I never asked, but I bet it was similar to the way I picked these women, Women that inspired me in some way, women I have learned from and therefore believe others could learn…

Day 13: Jae Richards

I met Jae last July in New York, through a mutual friend. I remember assuming I was going to meet some guy friends when I end up in a little outdoor bar, quiet uncustomary to New York. I’m faced with a gorgeous women, radiating the purest of vibes. And OMG, How is their skin glowing…

Day 12: “OhRawkC”

This may sound silly, but when I was younger I didn’t know that regular people could host radio shows. And of course Roselyn is far from regular, but just hearing their voices and having them so engrained in my daily drive to and from school or road trips, they just felt omnipresent and untouchable. But…

Day 11: Yanelis Francesca

Because we’re “cousins” aka grew up together, and our parents grew up together in true Cuban fashion, I know Yani basically came out of the womb dancing. She was the entertainer at all of our parties and the beautiful thing about it was, this girl wasn’t just showing off moves she learned in the classes…

Day 10: Akua Williams

Akua makes me such a proud mom everyday. I was a grade older than Akua in high school and we all know high school has this twisted way of making us value the silliest thing, like our seniority. We kept up with each other after though and seemed to both push each other to be…

Pajamas, But make it fashion…

Where are my cozy girls at ? This set makes me proud. Wearing this took so much courage and confidence. It is super comfortable, it has like a light fleece lining so it was perfect for this moderately cool day. I feel like this look is a tease. You can’t really buy any of it…

Desert Chic

This outfit is a result of me buying Jimmy Choo Birkenstocks before winter ended and then needing to put together an outfit that would kindaaaaa make sense. Alas, we have me in boyfriend jeans, a bralet, and an open sleeveless button down on top. Kind feels like an outfit that would make sense for my…

Day 9: Cristina Jerome

I had to take a well deserved break for the weekend, let me introduce you to day 9. Todays babe, is none other than the Queen of RnBae. Cris is one of those women that knows what she wants, what she brings to the table (or event industry or writing sphere or content creation space)…

Day 8: Blake Newton

These days, Blake serves as my partner in crime in the education space, and an ally outside of it. Although we are very different creatively, she motivates all who come in contact with her and her work because of her confidence and original way of thinking. I got her to share a few secrets with…

Day 7: Cayleth Vivas

The best way to grow a fashion blog or personal brand is with a carefully curated feed with muted colors, lots of flowers and green right? Wrong. The best way to make anything successful is to 1: be you, and 2: have fun! Cayleth is living proof of that. She challenges what it means to…
