The Best of New York Fashion Week-AW 2022

February 21, 2022

Hi Friends and Fashionistas!

Hope you are well and continuing to stay safe in this ‘new normal’. I’ve been laying low and trying to process all the losses we had last year (will do a post about that soon) while working my way back to creativity and inspiration. I’ve been watching Emily In Paris and And Just Like That and the fashion in those two shows has had me missing recaps sooo much. Luckily, New York Fashion Week came around at just the right time.

As cliche as it may sound, music has gotten me through a lot of difficult periods of my life. Before self help books and therapy, music was and continues to be one of my primary forms of self care.

On Writing-in general, but especially during a pandemic

July 14, 2020

 

I’m an insecure writer. I mull over pieces at least 10x (if not more), before I send them in. I take long breaks from writing because rejection is hard and I need to sit with it and myself for a while before having the courage to go again.

Hey everyone, hope you are well given these challenging times.

This lockdown has made me miss doing fashion recaps and it’s also made me realize how much I enjoyed it, how happy it made me and how much I need it for my sanity.
