Girl Mob Styling & Profiling Event- A Clothing Swap & Donation

Ever felt like you can’t relate to commercial magazines like Cosmopolitan and Vogue?  While reading articles like “what to wear” and “how to act” my most often thought is GIRL STOP!  After reading dehumanizing articles like that, I look in the mirror with my short stature and natural curls and it reminds me why I gave up on finding any resemblance of myself in those magazines. Thankfully, there is a digital publication called the Girl Mob to save the day.  The Girl Mob is a group of NYC living women of color who embrace their culture and do so much to help others.

Brujeria Uprising Amongst Feminist Millennials: Rediscovering Latinx Roots


Brujeria, which in English means witchcraft, was taught to me in high school with a book. The teacher assigned “The Crucible” written by Arthur Miller in high school. The purpose of the book is to educate the class about the horrific history of The Salem Witch Trials and the beginnings of structured religion. The tone of the book described an era of fear among the witches, painting a dark and dreary image.  Now fast forward to the present, my fellow Latinx millennials and I are digging through family history.

Boho Fashion Forward Looks With Tips On Which Winter Boots To Wear!

Being bohemian is more than just a look, is a way of life. Although I don’t dress in the typically patterned maxi dresses, wearing a flower crown on a daily basis, I do believe in the lifestyle.A bohemian is known to indulge most of their time expressing themselves in an artistic way. An artistic way can be painting, writing or music, creating is the forte. Another belief to this lifestyle is living like a nomad.  If you’re a traveling nomad like the song Gyspy Woman sung by Crystal Waters or living in the moment, it ends with the same result.You try to live a life without stress, and you take it day by day.

When it comes to dressing bohemian, a real boho girl wouldn’t care about what anyone thinks. She usually wears whatever she wants. However, the fashion world painted a picture for what boho fashion is in a general sense. Continue reading

“A small apartment renter with walk-in-closet dreams”, can explain who I was for a long time until a year ago. I found a listing on my modern Brooklyn apartment.It’s spacious compared to other city apartments, which are usually the size of someone’s kitchen. Space is not the only winning point of this apartment. The other winning point that made my jaw drop was when the broker showed me the closet. A walk-in! ( I screamed out of happiness inside). I signed the lease thirty minutes later, and as a clothes hoarder, I often pinch myself every time I open my closet. Currently in disbelief having this type of luxury in my life.
