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 got my bandeau!
I told you guys a while back that I was going to order the Mya Print Bandeau from Everything Lovely by Jessica. I also said I would post a blog when I wore it… The thing is, I work so much that I haven’t gotten a chance to actually wear it – but I took a bunch of pictures in it once it arrived!
More pics when you read more!

Scientific evidence suggest that negative vibes block blessings. Ok maybe not scientific evidence, but I’m a firm believer in that concept. Mainly because I have been so obsessed with all of the things going wrong in my life lately that I haven’t been able to acknowledge and appreciate all the things that have been going right.
I’ve been so focused on trying to maintain new relationships that I haven’t been thankful and grateful for the relationships I already have. My stand-the-storm strong relationships. Friends and Family. As far as even with work, I have a pretty decent full-time job and a pretty cool part-time job, but instead of being happy that I’m working and bringing in income from two avenues (not to mention a bunch of random freelance stuff), I complain about working too much (as if my having two jobs isn’t a personal choice lol) and not having the job of my dreams. Instead of being thankful that I don’t have any “real” bills, I go HAM about Sprint and Sallie Mae once a month. It’s coming. This is just a stepping stone right?
But I think I’m doing pretty good. Even with my site; irokfashion.com has picked up traffic, people have been emailing me, gotten offers for purchase, advertising, etc. Working on this mug and having people actually respond and appreciate it, is like inspiration to keep going. Even in my business endeavors, I’ve come up with a few business ideas (always looking for investors) that I definitely think will do well. I know will do well.
So yea, a lot of negative crap has happened but that much more good stuff has been happening too. I’ve even been able to cross off a few things off my material want list (team iPhone as of two weeks ago bitches). I can do nothing else but progress. Get better. Keep climbing. No where to go but up from here right?
…In the words of an esteemed philospher…burr. oh les do it.
