Hey loves!

As you know, I was in New York a few weeks back for my very first New York Fashion Week (read about it here)! As you can imagine, packing for New York during the winter time is quite a feat. Not only do I need to be stylish, but stay warm as well. I mean, I’m all for fashion, but what I am not gonna do is freeze my butt off! So it was absolutely crucial to have pieces to layer and keep warm in, while enduring the cold while in NYC. Rent The Runway to the rescue!!

 

Rent The Runway is truly a great travel hack because you seriously save so much space in your luggage.  You can rent dresses, accessories, coats, pants and handbags too!! Which to me, is quite important as I am a pro- carry on kind of girl.  I love using packing cubes to save space in my luggage! Whats great about RTR is that you can go online, select your pieces and the date you need them and have them delivered your home, hotel or wherever. When I was in NYC last October, I rented a few dresses for our anniversary shoot and had them delivered to the hotel (see the shoot here and here). After my rental period was up, I simply returned them to the RTR store in NYC. If you are not in New York, don’t worry! You can totally return them via UPS as well. Seriously, how easy is that?!

 

Rent The Runway also has an Unlimited program where you can rent up to three pieces and keep them as long as you like for $139 a month. If you didn’t know, RTR has tons of designer items such as Marissa Webb, Derek Lamb, DVF, Zac Posen and lots more! Free shipping, dry cleaning and you can cancel at any time! So the next time you are planning your vacay and wondering what to wear, just head to RTR and have your selections delivered to you. I linked a few vacay ready pieces from Rent The Runway below.  What a great hack right? Saving luggage space and still slay? You are winning!

Have you rented from RTR before? I’d love to hear what you rented and how you liked the service!

 

Please share!

“Every Year The  Women Of New York leave the past behind and look forward for the future. This is known as FASHION WEEK.”

-Carrie Bradshaw

Sex in the City

 

Now, I am not a woman of New York, but let me tell you, attending New York Fashion Week has been on my list of things to do before I started blogging!! The glitz and glamour of attending runway fashion shows and chit chatting with the “who’s who” seems so wonderful. It’s only been a few years now that bloggers are actually counted amongst those in the industry to  be able to attend NYFW. Well, last week I was glad to be in that number, but man did I learn a few things about NYFW that I am here to share with you. Not to mention the snow storm of the year prevented your girl from attending almost 2 full days of it (insert my tears here).

 

Honestly, I did not plan on attending NYFW this February. But, Marche Robinson of Robinson Style, reached out to me and asked did I have plans to go and if not, lets go together. Well, you didn’t have to ask me twice! It made it an easier decision to take on NYFW with a room mate and someone that I knew. I’ve known Marche through a few blog groups and of course follow her blog!! So I was down for the cause and we started our plans to attend. We clicked instantly when we officially met last week and are planning to attend NYFW in September too!

So anyway, lets cover a few of the things I did in order to prepare for my attendance to NYFW, as well as scoring invitations to shows. Oh, did you think invites just magically appeared in my inbox?? I wish! I am not there yet! You have to put in some work for them. I received invitations from Club Monaco, Jill Stuart and three other presentations thru me contacting the brand! So you have to put yourself out there if you want to get in to some of these events. I would say give yourself a two month time span from the date of the show to get all of these things done:

  1. Secure accommodations: I stalked sites for a good deal for a flight, so that was easy. Next, was to find a hotel! As a blogger and influencer, you can pitch to different hotels to see if they will host your stay OR provide you with a media rate. So let them know who you are, what you can offer them and have your media kit ready to send to them! If you don’t get any bites, thats ok, just book your hotel and work on Travel content for your blog so that next time you can show them your work providing travel content the next time you reach out.
  2. Book a photographer: I don’t see how you can attend NYFW without a photoshoot planned! I mean come on, New York is the PERFECT back drop for any blogger. So start scouring photographers in the area and request rates! Usually, rates are a bit higher during NYFW. So thats why I say to start maybe two months prior when you search to give yourself enough time to make a decision and book. I have used Laurel Creative twice and she’s great!
  3. Draft your email requesting an invite: Some bloggers get invites to shows, presentations and showrooms! How nice, but guess what, there are some of us that have to put in a little work to get invited to shows! So go ahead and get started on crafting your email to brands requesting an invite! I recommend  explaining who you are, that you will be attending fashion week and would like to participate in any events they may have. Don’t make it lengthy, just to the point! Find the media contact or PR firm that represents that brand and email them your request! You may have to do some digging around. Google is your friend!  Oh, also reach out to showrooms too for visits. Sometimes they have some of their new collections or may even let you borrow some pieces. Most importantly, don’t get discouraged if you don’t hear back immediately. Most of my invites came like 3 days before I arrived so be encouraged!
  4. Head to NYFW “The Shows” and “Fashion Week Online” website: These sites provide the schedule of all of the shows during Fashion Week. Its a great resource to help you plan what shows you want to attend, location and time. Keep in mind that the full schedule isn’t updated until maybe 1-2 weeks prior to Fashion Week. Use the letter that you drafted and begin sending out to the brands who are on the schedule. Sometimes the schedule will include a PR contact, but mostly it does not.
  5. Plan what to wear: NYFW comes with the pressure of looking absolutely amazing. But, boo just do you and you will slay anyway, OK!
  6. Sign up for a FOHR card: If you haven’t heard of FOHR, go and sign up now! FOHR is a great platform for bloggers  where they help brands partner with influencers. FOHR also emails you about a few months prior to Fashion Week and ask if you will be attending as they may have brands who want to invite you to shows or events!

 

Now, lets discuss what I learned attending my first Fashion Week. While we were there, Marche and I talked about how attending NYFW in February was actually good for us in terms of getting our feet wet and learning what to do differently next time. Speaking of getting our feet wet, let me tell y’all about how I missed almost two days of my trip. The snowstorm of the darn year decided to hit New York the day my flight was to leave, which was last Thursday. My flight was cancelled TWICE!! Not only that, my airline didn’t have any other flights going out until that Sunday. Sunday y’all, the day I planned to return home! I was literally devastated. I’m like come on, I am so close!! Well, obviously I made it to New York as you can tell. I ended up buying another ticket by the grace of God, leaving that Friday afternoon with a connecting flight to New York. I didn’t touch down in NYC until 9:00 Friday night. So I missed about 3 events because of the storm. Thankfully, Marche went in my place to two of the events but still! I tried to remind myself to just make the most of it and move on (insert more of my tears here) lol.

 

So here’s what I learned:

  1. Try to come a day earlier and Don’t Overbook Yourself: We missed out on a few invites to shows because they were on Wednesday or Thursday morning. I suggest trying to maximize your trip as much as you can so you can get the most out of it. I also think its important to not be held down by a slew of show invites. One blogger I follow said she had FORTY shows to attend. FORTY!!! I’m sorry but thats too darn much. I am over 30 and I require my rest lol. But, my point is that you are in New York, enjoy it! Maybe take a day and just enjoy the city! Hit up all of the hot spots and restaurants, meet some fellow bloggers and hit the town to take pics! Who wants to go on a vacation only to be exhausted every day? Not me!
  2. Reach out to blog networks: Shopstyle, Bloglovin and Reward Style just to name a few, typically have events during Fashion Week! We didn’t consider reaching out to these networks and we should have. We were so focus on contacting brands we didn’t consider the actual networks in our outreach.
  3. Wear the Brand: If you love the brand, wear it on a few of your blog posts so that you have blog content to share with the brand when you reach out for a show invite. I adore many brands, but I feel if I focused a little more on having that brand’s clothing on my blog it would have given me a little edge on getting invites!
  4. Be Organized and Schedule Reminders on your phone: Y’all, this is where we messed up!! We missed a show that we REALLY wanted to attend because we didn’t have the time correct. By the time we realized it and made it to the presentation, it was over ( ok give me the cup of my tears now). So lesson learned, schedule all of your shows and appointments in your phone with an alert so that you don’t commit the same mistake. We thought we were organized, but clearly we were not. Don’t worry, we won’t do this again!!
  5. Reach out to local area businesses and try to do a brand collaboration: Content is king for a blogger!! So maximize your trip to New York and reach out to some companies there for a collaboration. Spa’s, restaurants, tourism board etc. We thought of this while walking back to our hotel lol. Again, so focused on show invites we didn’t consider other opportunities we could have scored.

 

All in all, I cannot complain one bit. I love learning lessons and applying them later. What you have to keep in mind is that these tips are nothing unless you go out there and apply them. So that means start now and get prepared by creating great content, build your following, remain consistent and work hard on being a great blogger. So when New York Fashion Week rolls around again you’ll be ready, prepared, hitting the shows and slaying while you work! Not bad at all girl, not bad at all!

Hey there! Valentine’s Day is around the corner and its time to start thinking the most important question… what should I wear? Ok, maybe what your significant other plans are for Valentine’s Day is the most important question lol. But, if you ask me, having an idea in mind of what to wear is very important! Well, I partnered with Rent The Runway to bring you a very chic, yet casual daytime date look today. Even though its a daytime date, being stylish and cute is still important. My metallic leather jacket, peplum blouse, handbag and earrings are all courtesy of Rent The Runway. I seriously adore this metallic jacket so much. Its absolute perfection, I don’t want to give it back lol. No, Rent The Runway isn’t just for formal occasions. They have tons of outfit options, even handbags. Check out the Zac Posen bag that I am carrying above!!  As you can see, the hubby, Eric, is back on the blog! He is wearing a denim shirt and gray, quilted bomber jacket from Bonobos. Bonobos is a stylish menswear line that has really nice items for your man. From casual to dressier items, your honey will be just as chic as you!  So check them out too!

 

We decided to take you guys along on our daytime date! As parents, sometimes “date night” ends up being “daytime date.” Hey, gotta get in where you fit in! So we took the little one to daycare and headed out to enjoy the morning! We kept it easy with a quick breakfast and coffee at one of my favorite bistros in the area.  After breakfast, we headed over to the movie theatre for more fun. There are so many good movies we have to catch up on. What are some of your favorite movies that are out right now? Eric decided to sweep me off my feet too while we were in the movie theatre. I tell you, there isn’t a dull moment with this dude lol.

 

I’ll be sharing a fun “Mommy’s Day Out at the Spa” next week with a few ladies from the Empowerment Exchange. Hey, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for you and your boo! Spending a little girl time with your friends is always fun. I can’t wait to hang with these ladies this weekend and show you guys are fun spa session!

 

What are some of your V- Day plans? Please share, I’d love to hear!

Relationship goals, closet goals, hair goals, shoe goals, life goals! Y’all I am about wore out from all of these “goals.” Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen a many a picture where closet, hair and shoe goals have been met! But, relationship goals?! Let’s think about it. Most times when we say or refer to relationship goals its due to a picture or a video we’ve seen on the web. The internet has a funny way of making everyone lives looks so easy breezy. Its mainly because we allow people to see what we want them to see. But, we all know that we are only seeing a snippet of someone’s life, right?

 

Now, I know Eric and I are serving up all kinds of fierceness in these pictures.  This dress by Rent the Runway, LIFE! And yes, many will look at them and say, #relationshipgoals. And its nothing truly wrong with saying that. I know its a little bit of a compliment. But, I think its important that people have a true understanding about what relationships are and the work it actually takes before we start hash tagging and what not. Relationships aren’t always easy! I don’t always feel rainbows and butterflies when I see my husband. I am more so giving him side eye about the lightbulb that needs to be changed or how he doesn’t put my lotion back after he uses it. Yes, that really irritates the life out of me lol. But, real talk, thats just some petty stuff that he does that irks me. I am sure he has his list of things that I do that works his nerves too. Eric, if you are reading this, don’t come on here listing stuff I do that get on your nerves! Don’t try me! Lol.

 

I think its so important for todays generation to fully understand the importance of healthy relationships. I see so much in the news and social media that troubles me about people getting involved with the wrong person. I know I will teach Camille that she is a beautiful, intelligent and fierce woman who deserves to find a husband to treat her as such. Its important for us as adults, to really inform today’s generation about what healthy relationships really are. They should know that healthy relationships are when you are loved, treated with respect and kindness. Also, that relationships may have its ups and downs too. I mean nobody is perfect! Am I telling the truth?

 

Relationships come in all forms and everyones experience is different. Its nothing wrong with that! So long as its REAL!!! Some of y’all are married or with your boo thang and you’ve never had an argument, you’re so deep in love and can’t spend a second away from your bae. He’s the best thing since sliced bread and your relationship is so easy. Ok, then great! But, over this way, thats not how OUR relationship roll. Eric and I like our alone time to chill and do our own thing or watch our own tv shows, we roll our eyes at each other more so than giving each other the dreamy eyes. I get on his nerve and he gets on my last. We fuss and get into arguments! There has been a few times where Eric could catch these hands lol. We’ve gone days without speaking to each other (that was wayyyy back when, the Lord has brought us a mighty long way lol). But, we also love each other very much and he supports me as if I can do anything in the world. So now that you know this, does it mean we are not considered “relationship goals??” Of course not!

 

I like to roll with this hashtag I found on Instagram that I find more fitting and just makes more darn sense, #relationshipsbelike. Yes, thats more like it! I think that helps to broaden and round out what relationships truly are. Relationships be like love, respect, honor, fussing, fighting, making up, laughter, joy, pain and support etc. Yep, this is one that I can get down with! Now trust, I am not spilling our business to the world in this blog post. But, I like to keep it real honey and if I can’t do that on my own blog, then where can I do that at?!

 

Let me know your thoughts on the matter! I would love to have some dialogue and hear your opinions!

Hi There!

 

I love New York! I just do! Its one of those cities that you can’t help but to love. The energy, the vibe, architecture, food and shopping? Yes, it’s my kind of city! It’s the perfect makings of a fabulous trip with the one you love. The husband and I visited New York for our second time together a few weeks back and had a blast! Check out my Instagram for pics of our trip! In October we celebrated our seven year wedding anniversary and we thought it was the perfect time to take a trip together. Yes, thats right. Camille stayed in Dallas with her nana while mommy and daddy had some fun! No cute little toddler was around for mommy and daddy to chase after. I did miss her dearly, like all the time lol. Anyways, I thought it fitting that we do a photoshoot together! Why? Well, to celebrate our seven years of marriage and hello its New York (a bloggers dream shoot location)!

I don’t know about you, but if my hotel isn’t right, it’s not an enjoyable trip for me! So I set out to find the perfect hotel, in a perfect location with the right feel and vibe that we would both enjoy. When I found “The Roger New York Hotel,” I was in for a complete surprise. Why? Because this hotel offers a terrace! A terrace in Manhattan with a view of the Empire State Building!! Yes y’all, I knew we had to stay there! Couple that with the boutique feel of the hotel, delicious continental style breakfast, nice sized rooms and I was all in! The fact that they also have a fabulous happy hour had nothing to do with it lol. But, as you can see, The Roger Hotel New York is completely swagalicious and provided the perfect backdrop for our shoot! If you plan on visiting New York soon, be sure you stay at The Roger! If you use the code:“BUZZ” you can get 15% off their Best Available Rate!!

How do you like the hubby’s appearance on the blog? Did he do a good job? Lol. When I asked him to do a shoot with me, he was all in and was such a good sport! He told me that he would outshine me. Boy bye! Clearly I cannot be outshined! Lol. But, please show him some love and make him feel special!

 

I hope you enjoyed this post! There is more to come with the hubby! We have another couples shoot for you next week! So stay tuned!
