We don't like to do too much explaining.Story stays the same I never changed it. -Drake  

It's definitely getting close to 10 years since my friends and I graduated from high school. Despite feeling old, (wah!) I am so blown away by how close to reaching and exceeding our goals my friends and I are. Through graduating (or leaving) university and coming out to minimal jobs and massive debt, we hustled, we networked, and we created our own jobs.

I won't sit here and pretend that freelancing is easy, but I will say that there's nothing better than LOVING your job and I'm beyond proud of us. This brings me to my new mood: being grateful and proud. Ready to celebrate the good things in life, I wanted to look Gone With The Wind fabulous. Black being my go-to fab color, I started with my new amazing lace/mesh romper from ShopAkira. 

It's dark, dramatic, sexy, and I'm pretty much obsessed. I wanted to keep my jewelry minimal, so I just added two very dope bracelets and finished it off with my SOIREEs (shout out to my friends that are sick of them!). I love this look, turned heads, and had an awesome time dancing with my girls to "Started From The Bottom" being hyped that we are on our way to the top!
