🔅 Honoring the sun is one of time's oldest tales. On this morning of introspection and mediation celebrating the harvest moon and the arrival of the fall equinox, the great solar eclipse of 2017 became a special carpe diem moment where I made a sun and moon travel token of some marigolds, aloe, rosemary, and lavender … Continue reading The Sun & Moon’s Solar Eclipse

Since you've been following the basketball season, you've seen a rise in popularity of the Milwaukee Bucks. The klout the Bucks have … Continue reading NBA 2017 Rookie of the Year
I think after this I can call myself a civil rights activist. Being a wonderful woman and having the rights to my own body is a right not a privilege. And after marching against global warming, and for black lives matter, I'm finally marching for equality of all shades – marriage, salary wages, opportunities, religious … Continue reading See you in D.C. : Women’s March on Washington for All
I was wished a "Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day." The gesture was considerate with all good intent but this is not a happy day. This day is a reminder that "This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of … Continue reading Remembering Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.
This VS Fashion Show performance was so fun, flawless, and sexy. Confession: It also made me a Bieliber. I'd be lying if I said I don't perform to this song all the time - either in my apartment Cameron Diaz/Charlie's Angels style or while I run in the park. Victoria's Secret "PinkBall" segment in 2012 … Continue reading My Favorite Victoria Secrets Fashion Show Moment Ever
Well here it is, November 8, 2016, the night before (blog later continued on the night of) the most vital election of our time. An election that can decide whether nations go forward economically.... or backward developmentally. This election week is like running into a police station after being chased by the scream killer on Halloween night - you're … Continue reading Still With Her … Elections 2016
Damn. A young boy on the crest of being a man, crying for his father shakes me up a little </3. I am a positive person, a friend to all, even the judgmental ones. In a world where there is so much distance created by smart phones and mass media, what do I have to … Continue reading He lost his dad
I think Chris Rock just became a hero. Here it is the biggest night in Hollywood, glitz, glam and the truths of #OscarsSoWhite, then consequently #HollywoodSoWhite, has gained national attention and social momentum. In the crux of the hype? The host. After a particularly painful past few years of people of color being subjects of … Continue reading Chris Rock For the Win: Oscars 2016
Last month I had the pleasure of being the Social Media Coordinator for DeveloperWeek San Francisco, a tech exhibition produced by DevNetwork and it was suuuper fun. If you ever have the opportunity to produce an event that's not you or your gf's wedding, do it. Event producing is riveting on all levels... the good … Continue reading Social Media in the San Francisco tech scene
Let’s hope this is a sign of good things to come in 2015: London-born Jourdan Dunn just announced via Instagram that she scored the February 2015 cover of British Vogue.
The significance? This will make her the first black model to score a solo cover in over 12 years, the last being Naomi Campbell in 2002.
“I’m so Happy to finally say I’M ON THE COVER OF BRITISH VOGUE!!!” she wrote alongside a picture of the cover, on Instagram.
The cover announcement comes just weeks after The Fashion Spot called out a variety of major women’s magazines for failing to feature a diverse group of women on its covers over the last year, particularly signaling out British Vogue.
Dunn has been vocal about racism in the fashion industry in…

“Be so passionate that people think you might be a little insane.”
- The most beautiful thing you can do is smile.
- Embrace whatever genre of music you enjoy listening to. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s “not music.”
- But just know there will never be a better song than “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins.
- It’s ok to think another woman is beautiful.
- Don’t be catty to other women. You’ll need them when we all overthrow the world together.
- Don’t let any man convince you that he is powerful enough to change you.
- Even if he bought you dinner, you owe him nothing.
- The amount of pride you feel when you look good in your bikini for 20 minutes is far less than the happiness Taco Bell can bring you. I promise.
- Develop a lust to see the world around you.
- It’s ok if you don’t want to play princess or put on makeup.
- But it’s ok if you do, too.

Through Oct. 8 and 9, Paramount Pictures allowed college press an amazing opportunity to attend the “Jackass 3D” pre-screening and interview the stars of the film.
The crew reunited for their 10 year anniversary to make “Jackass” in 3-D.
The all star cast includes: Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna, Preston Lacy, Dave England, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, Ryan Dunn, Ehren McGhehy and the director Jeff Tremaine along with multiple guest stars.
On Oct. 8, I attended the press pre-screening of the movie at Mann’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
At the showing, the audience was provided with complimentary soda and popcorn.
As the theatre quickly filled up everyone was given the option to sit in the regular theater seat or a “D-Box” motion seat. I took the “D-Box” seat and enjoyed the action as if…

Racism is more real than ever now. I don't think this man who is not resisting arrest, no is he being arrested, is a coincidence or an accident. That's why it was ruled a homicide. What happen to using your words? I am so confused.... like this really bothers me. What about the ones [brutal police … Continue reading Eric Garner, the Staten Island Police and that little thing called Racism
