Lately I've been truly putting in as much work as possible and trying to stay consistent with updating you guys with my looks and projects that I've been working on . seeing as we are already approaching the end of this crazy year .

Solar Eclipses have been an intriguing event for the human race for many of years and whether you're into astrology or not , a Solar eclipse is a historical astrological event that collectively we all pay attention to whether you're spiritual or not! For those that don't know a Solar Eclipse is when the earth,moon and sun are in complete alignment , the three cosmic forces also known as the holy trinity of the universe, This cosmic event will bring about a new beginning so Take a big breather because this is quite a time to be alive . Now many people in the past also believed that solar eclipse meant the end of the world .... also known as DOOMS DAY ,In a way this can be true but certainly not to that extent . A solar eclipse is definitely an ending but I would say more of an ending of a cycle in the Global collective consciousness . We all know that A LOT is going on in our country right now , and this is what I mean when I say an ending of a cycle and a beginning of a NEW is on the horizon . all this hate is being brought to the surface to be transcended into love and Compassion because that form of energy can no longer thrive in the new dimension .Now truthfully everything isn't peaches and cream and flowers and hugs and we are seeing alot of hate , racism and sexism etc. But at the same time we are seeing more people unite no matter what race or religion . We are seeing more people taking their voices back with social injustice issues and most importantly we are getting more organized to really demonstrate what a true democracy looks like . 

Now I'm not saying this one solar eclipse will completely cure hate and racism but I'm saying that it's just another wave of an awakening for the human race . get ready for this planetary shift at this time . Remain balanced , vocal and determined these last 3-4 months of 2017 . it's never too late to hit that reset button in your life and determine your purpose and go about fulfilling it

Knyew Basic Bar 

The other day I had the pleasure of stopping by the NYLV studio to style and shoot some of their new cuts from their basic bar collection , Knyew has always been known for their impeccable fit E-elongated tees for years now and if you happen to  be lucky enough to have one you'd probably understand the quality comparison from a regular mall copped Scoop tee to a Knyew Scoop tee. On top of that the brand has a devotion to keep all production and design within the US giving the quality of their collections a more LUX affordable impression to buyers not only in the US but internationally  . be sure to stop by their site are see their new variations of cuts from Scoop tees + HI-LOs and of course my favorite Perfecto cut .


Urban Outfitters Under 100$ Outfit Challenge 

So lately I've been getting a lot of questions on how I afford such expensive things and if money defines success . and to answer the question from my perspective I would say NO . now a lot of people would disagree but in response my journey would be my argument . To be clear  I wasn't brought up in a wealthy family nor did I ever get spoiled and pampered by my mother. However she did instill HUSTLE into my DNA . She made me understand that nothing in this world is going to be given to you without work , passion intellect and  drive .

So to answer all my readers question, most of my clothing isn't even expensive ! it's truly all about the styling and being a strategic smart shopper that's balling on a budget . to give you guys an example of what I'm talking about I decided to start a fun series  on my site which I hope to continue when I relaunch my youtube channel Called BALLING ON A BUDGET showing you guys how easy it is to get a killer looking without putting a hole in your pocket .

Let me know If you guys would like me to continue this series  . ( Whole look is linked with prices below

Remainning  Spiritually grounded in this industry 

It's funny how I decided to write this post at this particular time but I thought it would be different yet perfect for some of my readers , Because I've always believed Career driven progression is just as vital and Spiritual evolution . If you've been following me for sometime you would have realized my year long break last  year from blogging , Modeling and working with brands. Now to say the least this had to be one of the most Organic changes I've ever experienced in my life . It was almost as if the universe was like " Yo you're really good at what you're doing and I see you but lets go DEEPER"

Around Winter of 2015 I was having tremendous amounts of spiritual awakenings that I had no knowledge of such as Clairvoyance , Lucid dreaming and OBE in meditation. Aside from that I was beginning to see the ugly side of the industry ..... Egos , Judgment, control and of course Attachments . By the Time that was all on my plate i had already dismissed Blogging , Modeling Collaborating with brands . Not because I hated it but truly just because the universe wanted me to understand and realize my purpose and value being here,  alive ...RIGHT NOW

When it came down to it when I should have been answering emails and editing I was instead either meditating or reading book after book after book . From Self-Transformation books to Chakra books , all the way down to Quantum Mechanic books . My brain was definitely a sponge and the universe was my library and outlet to spiritual intellect. After months of solitude and incubation I began to realize that what I was doing (Blogging , modeling and consulting) was what I loved and it genuinely made me happy . but I had to step back and see my vibrational frequency wasn't balanced enough to see pass and know there is more beyond this Material realm 

Having taken that time out and just recently coming back . I feel not only stronger with what I'm doing . but I feel I have a clear concise vision on where I want to be . So Honestly I would say it's all about balance. This industry is amazing and can be used for self expression and an outlet for creativity . but this isn't all there is ...... Start to look within .... Who are you ? . Don't feel guilty on taking breaks sometimes it needed . How is what youre doing today serving your soul
