Back in Business

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

The end of “Summer Vacation” is approaching, and of course that means back to work. Of course I use the term jokingly, because I’ve been working, but I haven’t been blogging or drawing! As my full time career continues to unfold and develop as it may, I’m still on a quest to maintain this fashion fix! I was recently promoted at work, and have finally been able to use my blogging skills as the Strategic Communications support for my client! Despite the day Job, fashion and art are just as important! 2ndandL will be undergoing some renovations in the upcoming season, but one thing that won’t change is the fusion between fashion and art.

I had an itch to Illustrate and decided to put to paper, fashion muse and style extraordinaire Shiona Turini. Loved by fashionistas and style connoisseurs alike, Shiona is making her permanent mark on the fashion industry, and paving the way for young fashionistas of color. Find out more about her at http://www.shionaturini.com.

Champagne Cheers: A Day out with Veuve Clicquot

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

On Saturday, tons of people gathered for one of the most stylish events of the summer. Adorned in  sun dresses, fedoras, and chic sunnies, the well dressed guests gathered to pop champagne and take fab photos…oh wait, there was polo too! Veuve Clicquot hosted their 8th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at Liberty State Park, filled with celebrity VIPs and the best bloggers in the game. Having attended Veuve Clicquot events before, I was given the opportunity to grab a guest and join in the fab festivities. Ranging from rompers to maxi dresses, and prep to high fashion, the event was full of sartorial genius.

To begin my exciting and busy weekend, I grabbed an early train from Union Station with a bag full of potential outfits of the day (it’s the blogger in me!) and headed to New York. With a quick outfit change, and making up the face, my super stylish friend Yanique, designer extraordinaire (yaniquemoore.com), and I grabbed our picnic basket and caught our fairy from New York City to Liberty State Park on the other side of the river.

The ride from New York to New Jersey was absolutely amazing. With a close up view of Lady Liberty and the warm winds of the beautiful Spring weather, we were truly in for a treat. Once we arrive to the Polo Classic, we set up our picnic basket, gathered with friends, and popped our champagne, making time for plenty of selfies and snaps on SnapChat!

First Fail, Then Fly

I am mine. Before I am anyone else’s. Before I am mine, I am God’s.

My name is Lindsay. I am a Type A, overachieving, detail oriented, creative…firefly. If you don’t really know what that means…it’s cool, it’s an Ancient Chinese Secret.  I am in the last quarter of my 24th year, and as I approach my quarter century milestone, I have been spending a lot of time making sure I am of sound mind, clear heart, and taking care of me. Self- awareness and self-nurturing were two of my 2015 goals, and skills I am working to perfect each day. With all of the hustle and bustle of life, responsibilities, and commitments, one can easily slip into a routine and get distracted. Between trending topics and hashtags, getting lost in the mix seems inevitable at time, but that place of peace is so beautiful. I’m practicing self- happiness, self- encouragement, and filling my spirit with positive energy and hope. Everything does not come with ease…mistakes happen, people leave, people come. Keep your head up, and keep your faith strong, things are destined to work out for your good. When things start getting uncomfortable and you feel like you’re losing your balance, go back and find a place of serenity, and do your best to stay there. When you fall, get up. First Fail, then fly. Experience is a hell of a teacher…but those lessons. The beauty of learning is better than the ugliest trial.

Photo Diary: Miami Vice

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Last week I took a quick trip to Miami for a much needed get away. We stayed at the Hilton Cabana off of Collins, and it was the perfect location! It wasn’t too crowded, and we had a sense of quiet and exclusivity despite it being the Spring Break of many colleges. I had a ball, grabbed some sun, and got to catch up with one of my close friends that I studied abroad with in Spain! My favorite spot to visit was definitely the Wynwood Art Design District!
