On the day the world was going to end I went to Soho to get supplies for my students. Ran into a guy with a great Basquiat tat. Met great people at Blick who were very helpful. Walked over to the West Village. Had a Lychee Soda. Yummy pizza. Laughed plenty. Saw Frida beaded curtains that made my heart melt. Got turned around on the C train. Rolled eyes at MTA. Enjoyed a lil boy practicing his dance routine. Made a wire person on train back home. Ate Ziti and Watermelon for dinner. Amazed how much style I had in common with the elders of my life.

I am now 29 years young. Time is flying and I am growing into the adult I always hoped to be with some surprises. Of course when I was younger I imagined that by this age I would have a house, a marriage and perhaps some little ones calling me Mommy,Mama or Pretty (I also imagined I would have some cool little ones that would create their own name for me i.e. Pretty or Sunshine) But with my grand plan I never saw so many of the blessings I have now.
I am an Alum of NYU. An Art Educator who teaches teens. Teens who love me (I know this to be true because they never leave my sight without saying I love you Tiffany). I love them like my own and they give me unimaginable hope. I am a Brooklyn resident in a forever changing landscape. I am an Artist. I am a proud big sister. And a daughter my parents brag about:“I never took a pill for my kids”. I am a giver of love and a receiver of many of the universe blessings.
So as I live the last months of my 20’s I am excited for my future. Now don’t get me wrong I often have outburst. Moments of stressful sometimes tearful impatience. But I know I am blessed. And I am ready.
Looking forward to debuting my new work for Love,Mama. Stay tuned and living in love & light.
Although 2013 has brought a major lost in my life, I have entered it feeling better than I have ever felt. I can feel the results of my physical and spiritual workout plan. I feel fly with my new haircut. 30 here I COME!
The Summer has my glowing and growing. My hair is one big curly mess and I LOVE IT! I keep cool in the heat with my bold prints, color and oversize fashions. I love this dress from Anthro. Makes me wanna float to the beach and collect sea glass.
