It's been a minute hasn't it? Well I have been active on social media, just not on the blog.
Wow, since the last post I went on a road trip to several cities in Ontario, went to New York City, met Beyonce's stylists Ty Tyrone as well as the editor-in-chief of one of the most popular fashion sites in the world, Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily and may I say I was starstruck!! Like, Claire is such a role model and I aspire to reach her level one day. She literally started from the bottom and has worked her way to where she is now-which is everywhere! Haha
Let's start with the road trip shall we?
Well my brother and I hit the road and decided to hit up Hamilton, Toronto and some other cities to taste foods and enjoy the scenery. We both attended 1 year of High School in Hamilton and had not been back in years so it was really cool to see our old city. We stayed long enough to watch the latest Mission Impossible movie in the theater and I surprisingly enjoyed it!
We were in Toronto for Caribana, although we really did not attend the festivities. It was still nice to get a feel of the city during one of its busiest festivals of the year.
The pictures are less than perfect in terms of quality but my charger got missing and we can't always get them HD pics now can we?
Hope you don't mind the camera photos too much.
Le big bro!
The following weekend, I headed out to the Big Apple for both networking and social purposes. I stayed with a friend I hadn't seen in 9 years! It felt like we were never out of touch and spent a lot of time eating, chatting and drinking mimosas :)
I met the one and only TY TYRONE, Beyonce's stylist!!!
Also in attendance was the blogger Islandchic77! I featured her a few years ago on my list of top bloggers.
The man behind the lens- Pierrre of Visuals by Pierre who is the photographer for Fashion bomb!
The one and only Claire Sulmers- drools*
Of course I had to check this store out :)
On Saturday, we headed out to a club not far from Times Square and what a crazy night it was! We befriended a bride-to-be and her bridal party who invites us over to their table. We had such fun chasing boys off and acting a fool-I mean, that's what NYC is all about right? I must says, the guys are very persistent...
Of course I had to try out some yummy eating spots and we headed out to Harlem for brunch on Sunday. It was this African boulangerie/diner in the West side of Harlem-which by the way has come a long way from what I recall.
And to end it all, a nice stroll in Central Park..
