Travel Tuesday: Balling on a Budget

 There are many things people add to their bucket list. Run in a marathon, become a millionaire or even do something outrageous like jump out of an airplane. There is one thing I know for sure I want to do and that is travel. I’m sure I’m not the only one that desires to see different places and experience different cultures other than the one you live every day.

International Pop! Philadelphia Museum of Art Pop Art Exhibit

During Spring Break last week I had decided to get my inspiration back after a dreadful start to spring semester. Even though I'm finally taking fashion courses, I still feel out of my element.

A Night of Black Excellence: Avant Garde Art Exhibit

Amazing artwork from artist @yesitsjayagain

Last month I was invited to attend an amazing art exhibit celebrating Black History Month and  local artists in the Philadelphia area. After attending a few art exhibits and showcases myself, I must say this was one of the best art shows I've been to in awhile. It was great music provided by June Lopez, delicious food catered by Twice the Spice Caterers & Chef Bernard Caterers & Son and amazing art from many different artists across Philadelphia.

Shopping Gems: Aoki Boutique

Philadelphia is known for many things including our food, art and music but one thing many may not know about our city is that we have a bubbling fashion scene too. We have some of the best shopping districts, boutiques and malls all in a close distance. Being that my favorite (and most expensive) hobby is shopping, I thought I share some of my favorite shopping gems in the city of Philadelphia!

Weekend Editon: Prom on a Budget!

Prom season is around the corner which means its time to grab those wallets (and maybe a book or two to kill time) and go shopping for her or his grand day. Personally, I did not attend my prom. For the fact I was home schooled my senior year and didn't know anyone, I saved myself from a horrible night. Plus, I couldn't imagine what I would wear, especially for the prices they were offering for prom dresses. This doesn't have to be your faint, thanks to Wardrobe Boutique!

Art as Inspiration: Fabric Museum & Workshop

'Blockadia | Josh Graupera 2015

And I'm back! 
I've been having such a good (and hectic) semester this go around, I also forgot I had a blog. Oops! Well, I'm back to share such an inspiring moment from the beginning of the year. I was recently looking through photos on my phone for inspiration for one of my homework assignments, when I saw some pretty cool art work. Then, I remember the awesome Fabric Museum & Workshop art exhibit that I visited not too long ago, Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit.
