This past Thursday was amazing to be surrounded by friends and colleagues in celebration of MARIEmag relaunching. My blog means a lot to me and in the midst of collaborating and putting together a new website it’s been one whirlwind after another. From shooting with Refinery 29 for their 2016 calendar to collaborating with some stellar brands like Lydell NYC, Jord Watches, and of course Quinn NYC – I have not taken time to celebrate all of the success. I often work hard from project to project but never take the moment to stop and smell the roses.
This event was beyond a blessing to look around and see people from every step in my life since moving to New York. From my days at Vogue, to working at People Magazine, to connecting through Essence, to fashion friends I wouldn’t trade in for the world – I was thrilled to have everyone in my corner cheering me on.
