Stay Alfred Midtown ATL

Until recently. I was under the impression that a hotel was the best option for my family and I while  traveling. Last week, I had the pleasure of staying in one of Stay Alfred's luxury vacation rentals, and my traveling experiences will never be the same again! 

Stay Alfred offers luxurious vacation rentals in major cities, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, San Diego, and many more. all of the properties are located in the heart of the city, giving you access to all of the local hotspots. Check out the photos, plus a video tour of my apartment below:

We had a night to remember. Every place we explored was in walking distance of our apartment.

The views were so unreal! We could literally see the entire city from our rooftop terrace. One of my concerns when traveling is the security in the hotel. I felt so safe at this property. In order to access the building or get onto any of the floors in the building, you had to have a fob, which is given to you upon check-in.

At sunrise, we headed to the rooftop for a dip in the pool. The secluded area gave us access to an amazing view of Atlanta, while at the same time giving us the privacy of your own home.

Why athleisure wear has become a staple in my wardrobe (feat. GS Love)

I usually like to overdress for any event, but lately I've been falling in love with the idea of athleisure wear. I love the fact that I can pair these looks with sneakers, or some sexy boots, depending on the occasion. 2 piece sets have proven themselves to be the most versatile pieces that we could own this season. If I need to pack for a trip, I'll simply throw in a couple of sets, some sneakers, and some boots. I'll add in some hoop earrings, a denim jacket, and a cute bag for a more cohesive look. There is no way you can go wrong with athlesisure wear.

How a simple Instagram post landed me a contract with my favorite shoe company

(2017, at the Miami Epic Hotel)

Do you guys remember this picture? I remember it like it was yesterday. I was at one of my shows in Miami, and before heading into wardrobe, I snapped a pic in my typical outfit that I wore to all of my shows, which consisted of some basic leggings, a crop top, a backback, and literally the first pair of Puma's that I've ever owned. Although they were my first pair, they quickly became my favorite pair of shoes in my closet, and I wore them everywhere. I realized how much I had actually been sleeping on this brand. I love to do outfit tags on my posts, so naturally, I tagged Puma. I had no idea the doors that this act alone would open for me.

When I tell you guys, within months, I was contacted with an offer and a contract for a Puma sponsorship....all because they loved my personal style. 

I say all of this to say, it is so important to be yourself, and within the process, the brands that mesh well with your authentic self will present themselves. These are the brands that you want to work with. There will be plenty of brands that will try so hard to turn you into who they would prefer for you to be. Those are not the companies you should strive to work with. As an influencer, it is so important not to sell out. 

For anyone who has aspirations to get endorsed by their favorite companies, I promise it's possible. Regardless of how different we all are, there will be companies that genuinely love you for you. Just keep being yourself, and market yourself....I always look on social media, and see all of the "baddies", built like video vixens, with their perfect makeup skills, and fleeked out nails and eyebrows. Although I think they look so beautiful, they look nothing like me, and that's okay. I'm my own kind of beautiful, and so are you. The fact that we are all different is what makes us dope. Continue to work hard, and you will attract the ideal situations for yourself. Get comfortable with doing you, and you'll be surprised at the amount of doors that open up for you.

And that's what Puma represents. I'm never afraid to do me. #DoYou

Inspired by the 80's

Feeling a little inspired by the 80's in this little leather mini and comfy sweater, paired with some over-the-knee boots and a boyfriend jacket. This look is the perfect fit to dress up for a day of errands, without completely overdressing. I felt like putting on a minidress today (haha:), but this outfit made me feel equally as sexy. Check the details below:

A Look: Schoolgirl Chic (feat. Puma & Miss Pap)

I've been really feeling this look lately, and for some reason, it just kind of works for me. I've always been a really girly-girl, so skirts are definitely a staple in my wardrobe. Pair a cute mini with some over-the-knee socks, and a beret, combined with your own personal style, and you have to admit...a little magic happens.
