I usually don’t post on Saturdays. I take the weekends to recharge my brain, be a lazy bum and maybe cook some Jambalaya. But today I broke one of my golden rules of blogging and flipped my laptop open and perused the Internet.
My traffic has been down so I’ve been stalking Google analytics to figure out how I can improve my numbers. One of those secrets is partnering with other websites (that’s another blog post). As I was checking out who has been talking about GorgeousInGrey, I came across a referral from BuzzFeed.
In celebration of another successful New York Fashion Week dozens of editors, bloggers and fashion enthusiasts attended “Relax, Renew and Recharge” NYFW lounge at Inglot Chelsea Studios in NYC.
Hosted by me (!!!), Christen Rochon (DivasandDorks.com) and Kéla Walker (KelasKloset.com) – collectively known as the Digital Sorority group – invited guests experienced live beauty demonstrations and complementary makeovers from Angela’s Hair Studio and INGLOT Cosmetics.
On most days I rarely put much thought into my outfits. I wake up after pressing the snooze button at least nine times and just focus on smelling good (because I like to hug people) and having a flawlessly beat face. I think I have mastered the last one.

We are right in the middle of New York Fashion Week and it’s officially the most hectic time ever. This season has reminded me that my life is already busy enough and I just want my regular busy life back.
This fashion week season I’ve decided to add on-air talent to my resume. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now but looking and listening to yourself and feeling great about what you see and hear can be a challenge.
I teamed up with blogger extraordinaire, Rae Holliday (StuffFlyPeopleLike) for a NYFW street style video. We cute!
I am still trying to convince myself that working out is fun (insert angry emoji). Even amongst some of my best blogger boos, the world’s greatest view behind me and a new look from Under Armour I loathe working out.
Since I was cheating on NYFW anyways (OverIt.com), I decided to attend a high-intensity rooftop workout led by Natalie Uhling (NUfit) as part of the Under ArmourIWillWhatIWant campaign.
