I don’t EVER wear shorts. Let alone a matching short set. I’ve always felt like the ratio between my ankle and my calf was on struggle mode. Like, I’m right on the line of fat ankles or cankles.

It’s hard to think that just four years ago this month I packed two suitcases and moved from Baltimore to New York to sleep on a friend’s couch. My only goal was to figure out how to make it as a style and beauty editor. Fast forward to 2016, and I am now a published author, look at God. WOW! Talk about life reimagined.
