Please Don't Kill My Vibe

My phone rang. I looked down at it and couldn't stop smiling as I saw the name "Mike" pop up on my screen. Awesome possum! I thought as I answered it. "Hey babe, what's good?" he asked as I tried to make my voice sound regular and not like I was cheesing oh-so-hard.

(Took my hair down and got new glasses. Time for a change. I like it.)

The New York Times: Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of

After my People/Bic For Her photo shoot I had the opportunity to meet up with Audrey of Miss Moon's Musings for some tasty adult beverages, great conversation and lots of laughs. Audrey and I met in person during my last visit to NYC so I was excited to see her again. And when I tell you Audrey gives good voice, I mean it! She has the BEST voice, it's all soothing and seductive and stuff. And her stories about her job literally had me in tears. #TeamAudrey #BrooklynInTheHouse

The New York Times: Pose For The Camera Now, Click Click

The story of how my trip came to be: It was about a month and a half ago and I was on and they were asking for submissions for your must-have accessory. I submitted my photo (this one) and named my bracelets (of course) as my must have accessory which is such the truth. I think people were supposed to vote on submissions but I didn't think anything else about it until I was contacted by People about a month later letting me know that I was a finalist in the contest. Oh em geeeeeeeeeeee, what?!? I didn't even know what the prize was until they contacted me. I had to submit notarized information that I was who I said I was (Catfish, anyone?) and they completed a background check and then I was notified that I was one of four winners of the People magazine Bic For Her contest! I remember seeing the email on the last day of summer school and I could barely contain my excitement! I couldn't believe it and called my mom immediately. She was so excited even though I told her that I wasn't going to tell many people yet. She thought that I was crazy but I guess because it didn't feel real to me so I just wanted to let it marinate for a bit.

The New York Times: Hello Brooklyn!

I have been thinking of the words that I would use to describe my trip and I keep using the word amazing. As in 'causing great surprise or wonder; startlingly impressive.' And it was. I felt so fully in the moment every step of the way, I just wanted to take it all in and absorb everything. And I loved the experience.

Dead End

One last post before I'm off to the NYC. I think at this point I would pay someone to choose and pack my oufits for me, I hate packing! Prolly because I am limited as to what I can bring, I love to have options and my carryon will not let me be great.
