This year has been filled with magical moments and opportunities I couldn't have dreamed of two years ago. ESSENCE magazines 2nd annual Street Style Block Party was another once in a lifetime experience.
While finishing my final planning for Afropunk I applied to be a vendor fully aware that the show was only two short weeks away. I planned for Afropunk for 5 months but I was determined to be apart of this amazing event and made a deal with the universe that if my application was approved it was a sign it was meant to be. My application was approved and I was repacking to do my third show for the year.
The event was amazing and I was able to connect with so many jewels and gems.
Thank you to all my family, friends, jewels and gems that showed support at the event.
