Singing..."Stylist Lifestyle might don't make it" lol in my Gucci Mane voice!


I'm strong enough now  to admit that I'm addicted to the hustle of the lifestyle of being a Stylist! After working with Mariel Haenn for a couple of years as a part of Team Rihanna, I was somewhat jaded. It took working two separate 9-5's to realize being a Stylist isn't a job, nor is it a career but it's a LIFESTYLE!!!  A lifestyle that I'm absolutely addicted to, in many ways I feel like this life was chosen for me.


"This is the life I chose, well the life that chose me and if you can't respect that your whole perception is wack" Jay-Z


It took a while for me to realize that life is what you make of it! After trying to conform to the norms of society in college I decided to follow my dreams to what ever clouds they lead me and this quote was one of my mantras:


It's from Choices by Nicki Giovanni "If I can't do what I want to do, then my job is to not do what I don't want to do" 


Everyday I wake up and repeat this to myself , just as a reminder of the  hard work, love and COMMITTMENT I need to put into my career LIFESTYLE!!!


   I was reading Mariel's blog over at We Resist Simple  and one of her quotes embodied exactly what I was thinking/feeling.


"The American dream isn’t what it used to be. But I will say this….Whatever it is that you think you want out of life….  BE and STAY committed to that thought, process, decision, and idea.  Or stand there wondering why you’re not getting what you want out
of life. The choice is yours." Mariel Haenn


Now I'm on a voyage to revitalize my career as a Stylist. First stop! Assisting the lovely
 Fatima B! 



She's a sweet heart and is single-handedly refining Nicki Minaj's style. Here's a few pictures of the jobs I've assisted her on so far!
