One of my favorite singers released a video dishing the details of the soft launch of her clothing line held this past weekend at the Essence Music Festival. The line is already fetting mixed reviews. I've read a few comments on Facebook from a few indie clothing designers who were none to pleased with the line. One likened it to a "Instagram Boutique", which is not a compliment. In the video she shows a few sample pieces. Check them out below.
Today is July 1, 2015! We are officially in the second half of the year. January seemed like yesterday. This just goes to show that time waits on no man. Because of that we can't become complacent. I made a vision board at the top of they year and it has been full steam ahead to put in the work to make sure my goals are accomplished. Check out what I have achieved so far.
1. Purchased doman for Diva Chronicles. The blog now is a .net. I wanted .com, but that isn't in the budget at the moment. Apparently I have a "premium domain". That may be on next year's vision board.
2. Purchased domain for Diva's Marketplace. I've been working on an artisan focused shop for some time now. It's still under construction (mainly because I've been doing the constructing). I have been working on the marketing materials in my spare tims. The latest Microsift Suite is bomb! There is basically no need to outsource.
3. Apply to graduate school. I have decided to undergo the daunting task of graduate school four years after receiving my bachelors. I'm excited and nervous all over again. My interview was yesterday, I'll keep you posted on the outcome. The blogging schedule might change because of that.
What did I learn so far? Make a plan and work it. Months fly by fast and getting lazy is not an option when you have goals you want to accomplish. I am always working on one of my projects in my spare time. Gotta put in work!
I hope this inspires you to keep pushing forward with your goals.
I came across a cool brand while browsing my favorite flash sale site, Haute Look. I love brands that offer fashion yet offer a unique aesthetic. Earth Wood offers sunglasses and watches from you guessed it, wood. This eco brand offers unisex options promising that no two are alike. Check out a few of their watch and sunglass options below.
With over 23 collections to choose from, thete is sure to be a pair for everyone. Check out a few below.
How many times have you asked yourself, "When is Janet going come back to music?" I've asked it, and many other notables in the music industry have voiced their opinions as well. Well we got what we asked for, and Janet delivered with a world tour. August through November she'll be performing all of her hits. Hope this is just a prelude to new music. Tour dates are below.
