A little birdie once told me that whatever you are waiting for – whether it be peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance, love and companionship, prosperity, or whatever – it will surely come to you. But only when you are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
Don’t lose hope.
Finals are over! And although the end to the quarter was a bittersweet series of moments, I am looking forward to the Fall. I took yucky business classes and dealt with a bunch of business plan-esq projects, so I am happy to be getting back to fashion design, concept theory, and luxury marketing in the next quarter. Two of my favorite and beloved professors have decided to leave my program to pursue industry careers and nurture family life.
Although I am devastated to see them go, I am thankful for all they have taught me and I look forward to seeing them again, but in the professional world. My honey-boo-boo-asian-persuasion, Monica, graduated with her M.A. in Luxury & Fashion Management over the weekend, so I want to wish her the best of luck.
Well anyway, I say all that to say this, I haven’t been blogging because I’ve been tearing my wig out with assignments, exams, and boring lectures. So as summer approaches I will update iRokFashion.com more regularly and I will also be starting a new editorial venture on DJMoBeatz.com. I randomly started a tumblr, so check that out. You can follow me on instagram. I still have my twitter… And that’s pretty much all the social communication I’ll be playing with this summer.

I have the best mom. Unexpectedly she sent me a really uplifting letter addressing my current state of panic and misfortune, and I’ve decided to share. It’s a great feeling to know someone cares about you and what you’re going through. I hope someone else can read this and apply it to their situation (if they have one).
Hello my darling beautiful, sweet, attractive, expensive, never to be ignored Taylor!
Things will get better. You know this. I know this. We know this because you are a bright, beautiful and very talented person (and you look like me back in the day and I was slamming!) I know your success is on the horizon because when things are this difficult it makes you appreciate your special gifts, helps you to understand who you can trust and depend on, and helps you get focused on the things important in your life.
King Bey released the visuals to her make-you-cry-on-demand track “I Was Here”, in recognition of World Humanitarian Day! Listen, if you don’t go out and hug a stranger after listening and watching, you aren’t human.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the new moms, old moms, grand moms, great grand moms, God moms, step moms, aunt moms, sister moms, daughter moms, friend moms, and cousin moms! We love and appreciate everything you do!
I want to give a special thank you to Carolyn (my mum); You’ve set such a grand example of what a women should be. You believed in me and supported me even when I went against everything you suggested. You’ve been there to wipe my tears and to propel my laughter. When I was ready to give up, you told me that real women face their obstacles, and that if I couldn’t find the solution, make one. You have taught me what it means to be selfless, kind and strong. For that and more, I love you mom.
(I really really love my Aunt Jen as well! She is definitely like my best friend and mom wrapped into one. I am extremely grateful for everything that she has done and continues to do.)
