Baes Magical Top Hat

Every so often we stumble upon something on the internet that we never meant to discover. This website was one of those. It's 2 am mid-finals time and I am looking for an excuse to not be working on work. So, I'm shopping for a bunny online. Now Imagine my surprise when I find this Gem of a website:
Please open your laptop put your volume all the way up and enjoy this link:

Am I blogging correctly ?

When was the last time that I posted a blog? Yet, all my marketing research talks about the power of blogging and SEOs. So maybe I need to get a little practice on my blog and then launch the Trippy Manufacturing Blog. I don't even know what I would write about as Trippy. Maybe sustainability information
sneaked in with an adventure blog? I just don't know if I wanna write about my adventures where my mom can find them. I don't wanna get in trouble..... Maybe I could write my mom's blog for her since she doesn't actually have one but continues to say "Thats going in my blog". Possibly if I write a few of my adventures I could ask for submissions and get more consumer engagement. 

I need to stop writing my business "secretes" on my personal blog. But, no one reads my blog and if I keep doing this maybe it will show up on someones radar. I'm a young entrepreneur (if you could even call me that) who has no idea what I'm doing. But thats what makes it fun. It is a little nerve racking, because I'm terrified of failure. My brand is my baby, and I want it to thrive and grow.  Right now I'm nervous that if I should hold off until I can do a proper catalog shoot to get my Etsy/ Website up. But, what the point of gaining Instagram followers if I have nohing listed for sales. Could it be time to just jump? Do my best to just get something-anything out there. Over time I can improve my shop. Am I too caught up in what my first impression might be that I'm loosing my room to grow? I think that I need to set of the ledge into the water and just do it.

My closet is like my inspiration space

Your closet is obviously amazing, what are some of the prized possessions in your closet?
Probably pieces from our first runway shows. Pieces you wore once that you could never part with. My closet is like my inspiration space. Things that I love and enjoy and I always get inspired. So there's not a particular piece. I can't pick. - Lebov Azaria

How Fashion Became about Power, and Lost its Ability to Dream | James Scully | #BoFVOICES

Kinda long for a youtube video but extremely important to think about. Not only within the fashion industry but in life. When we become exclusive we loose begin to loose fantasy and push people to the raw edge of their emotional well-being.  If we begin to stop and listen to people's stories and behave with kindness we can begin to evolve creatively outside our own image.

Due date

This is my last time signing up for a tuition payment plan.  This is the last first payment of the semester. However, it is not the last time I thank my mother. College is expensive. Sickenly expensive. So why did I do it? I did it, because I had been cleaning houses for as long as I could remember. I wanted a better shot of never needing to do it again. Now that I am almost out I realize that the bills are gonna come, and at the end of the day someone is going to paying them. One day I really hope that I can do it on my own,  but truthfully today is not that day. I look back at my mother who goes to work every day doing the one thing I am trying to avoid to pay for my opportunity. And I don't tell her enough how thankful I am.  When I walk down the runway, and across the stage in may I will not be celebrating my success. Honestly, I will celebrate hers.
