Have you ever thought about wearing false lashes and maybe even tried but failed miserably? Join the club sister cause that was me until I discovered the Kiss i Envy magnetic liner and lash set!

I took a few months off from blogging and I wanted to be honest and transparent about the reason(s) and why it has taken me so long to get back in the game. I actually stopped around the same time that I did my September Fashion Month Cleveland/Challenge. It was a lot of fun, but took a lot out of me cause I was literally doing something and interacting with people everyday- from creating daily themed outfits to wear, to posting to several social media sites everyday sometimes multiple times a day, managing a FB group for the challenge, planning and attending activities for the month etc. It was fun but draining! And then professionally I took on three totally different challenges!
I live in Cleveland, Ohio and while we do have a lot of fashion talent here and a somewhat strong fashion community- it is segregated, spread out and a lot of times more of a flex of popularity and money than it is about supporting and cultivating new talent. We used to have a Fashion Week but that fizzled out a few years ago...
So what is a lover of fashion to do when Fashion Week rolls around to every city but yours? Create your own shit! And that's what I did! I scoured my personal calendar, Eventbrite and Facebook for opportunities to celebrate and when I could only find a few, I made the decision to produce my own.
And yes, I know that I am several months behind on this post lol, but some things happened in my personal life (read about that here) that caused me to put a pause on blogging. But now I'm back and BETTA THAN EVAAA and September was just too lit for me to not write about it so here we go:
September 5th, is officially the start of New York Fashion Week, followed by London, Milan and finally Paris, rounding off what is now known as Fashion Month. Individual cities also celebrate local designers by hosting independent fashion weeks, but unfortunately Cleveland does not have one. However, if you have been following my blog, then you already know I'm not one to cry over spilled milk and I love to take matters into my own hands- so I decided to host my own Fashion Month (read here and here for previous attempts) creating and attending my own events while adding a fashion and style challenge in the mix. Keep reading if you want to participate!

Getting dressed for work during the scorching hot dog days of summer can be stressful, no matter your profession. The heat doesn't care if you work from home, in an office or an art gallery- trying to look good in 100 degree weather without melting is an extreme sport for all involved!
Spending precious minutes standing semi nude while staring off into the black hole that is your closet is not how you should start any morning, and we won't even get into the commute! Driving, walking or taking public transportation to work with no AC should be a crime- and it actually is as evidenced by the unsightly sweat stains plastered on the back and under arms of your favorite top. Finally you arrive to work and get some reprieve from the heat which feels great until two hours later you are now freezing to death and sneezing all over your co-workers while rubbing your arms and trying to stop your nose from dripping!
