Paris Fashion Week Inspired Photoshoot

In honor of Paris Fashion Week (pfw), since I can’t physically be there i had my own pfw inspired photoshoot.

20170929_100931It’s still warm for Fall here in Baltimore so I went with a summery look under a jacket that is perfect for Fall weather.

My crop top is from an online designer named Rhiverxx. The shirt says Melanin Goddess which I love because it embraces my love for being a beautiful, strong, black woman.

The croptop is lightweight and has a racerback. I also love it because, as you may not notice from the pictures, I can go braless while wearing it!

Paired with my top I wore black shorts with a white floral print. I purchased them from Forever 21 on sale for only like 5 bucks!! A great deal if I do say so myself.

The sandals that I am wearing are from Payless, an affordable store with some stylish shoes!

The duster/bomber jacket is from the lovely Zendaya’s clothing line, Daya by Zendaya. This rose gold color was definitely on trend this summer so I wouldn’t be surprised to see it make its way into fall clothing as well.

Since I was channeling paris fashion week vibes, I tried out a few different poses and angles and I think the shoot turned out quite well.

Sometimes you have to imagine yourself in the environment you eventually want to be in at some point in your life. Just because you couldn’t make something happen this year doesn’t mean give up on your dreams or goals.

I’ll be at Paris Fashion Week one day, whether modeling clothes, being a stylist for the models, hosting the backstage action or the show itself, or maybe being one of the designers. I may not be exactly sure where I will end up, but I know my future is bright.

Keep envisioning yourself where you want to be. Live life to the fullest. I believe in you!

What Empowers You? Plus…New Style Alert!

Hello lovelies,

Happy April! I know it seems like I may have abandoned my blog, but don’t worry I am here and doing my best to post blogs when I can!

Recently, I had an amazing meeting with Chardelle Moore, a talented multimedia journalist for Fox45! I spoke with her about getting into my the field and about my career aspiration of becoming a fashion correspondent!

Chardelle Moore and I

This meeting made me feel so empowered because I know that I have the ability to achieve my dream goal and I have many events coming up that will be stepping stones towards my dream.

Today I also wanted to spotlight my new protective hairstyle. This hairstyle is simply 2 long braids.

The purpose of this look aside from making me look stylish is to give my real, natural hair a break from my hands being in it.

This style allows my hair to grow over the 2-3 week span I keep them in.

Not only is wearing them good for my hair, but also they empower me. These braids make me feel fierce and strong.

Having my hair pulled off of my face highlights my features more which is great! It also makes me feel in touch with my African American roots.
Find something that empowers you this week, something that makes you feel strong and fierce! It can be a book you read, a song, anything at all!
Leave a comment below stating whatever it is that empowers you. Enjoy your week!

2017 is coming…Are you ready?

The weather is getting colder, we are actually expecting snow this weekend in Baltimore!

Christmas is 12 days away, the new year is 19 days away…this year has flown by.

2017 will be here before you know it, but are you ready for it?

Are you ready to reach your dreams and goals in 2017? What are some of the major changes you are looking forward to next year?

Here is a list of 5 of my own goals for the new year:

1) Submit articles to online magazines and maybe become a blogger or regular contributor for them

2) Reach out to more stylists, fashion bloggers, and people who run their own fashion related companies on social media and look into collaborating with them and/or becoming a brand ambassador

3) Redo/improve my blog and post weekly

4) Buy a new laptop and video camera to start working on my own youtube channel

5) Look into more fashion related events I can attend in Baltimore

There is a #1 goal that will also take place next year that I will announce early in the new year with all of the details in another blog post.

Stay positive as Christmas and New Year rolls around. You can achieve all of your wildest dreams and aspirations, just work hard at it!

Love Tati  ❤

And below is a picture of me embracing this cold weather lol ~

The Book of Me: Future Edition

This post is actually a story I wrote for my creative writing class. It is special to me because I wrote about how I envision myself in the future. I talk about my dreams and aspirations for the future and I think it turned out pretty cool ^-^ So without further ado, here is ~~

The Book of Me: Future Edition

Chapter 1: Talking with Tati

micShe is the host of a talk show called “Talking with Tati.” She is standing on stage wearing a strapless coral jumpsuit with a gold belt, gold statement necklace, and sparkly gold shoes. Elle Magazine voted her one of the best dressed hosts on television. One day she interviews musicians and actors and another day she interviews scientists and YouTube stars. She speaks exquisitely about current fashion trends, women’s health and beauty tips, natural hair, and current world events. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and share her point of view. On every episode she tries to encourage, educate, and inform her fans in some way. At the end of every episode she leaves her viewers with a motivational quote. “Always aspire for greatness. If you believe in it, you can achieve it,” she says as she flashes a big smile and waves goodbye to her audience.

Chapter 2: Glamour Shot

red carpetThanks to her successful hosting career, she now gets an opportunity of a lifetime. She is walking the red carpet. “So this is what it feels like to have dreams come true,” she says in her head as she steps her first silver heel onto the red carpet. She wowed in a teal Versace mermaid gown that she paired with silver chandelier earrings. Her pear shaped frame is perfectly accentuated in the gown. Her silver and gold tattoo jewelry glistens as the bright lights hit them. Her long, curly natural hair bounces as she struts down the red carpet. She looks gorgeous and feels like a movie star. She stops to strike poses as the cameras flash all around her. She occasionally blows kisses at the young girls cheering and waving to her. She’s happy to be a role model for so many girls. She waves like a princess to the cameramen and fans as she gracefully exits the red carpet.

Chapter 3: Her Start

Her red carpet moment gained her even more success. A host asks her onto his show and wants her to speak about how she got to where she is today. She talks of going to college and majoring in communications and finishing a semester early. She speaks non-stop startabout the people she met who helped her along the way. “Reaching out and asking for help is something I had a problem with, but I soon learned how to do it. I am so grateful for the people who helped me,” she says with tears in her eyes. She mentions how she moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles, after her college days and got her “big break” when she ran into a producer looking to create a new show. “I guess I was in the right place at the right time,” she says with a smile.”

Chapter 4: A Normal Life

Even with her luxurious lifestyle of hosting, talking to celebrities, and red carpet homeappearances, she still leads a normal life. She has a loving family that keeps her grounded throughout all of life’s chaos. She has a husband, a scientist by day and a game developer by night. She has one child for now, Caleb, who is three years old. She wants at least 5 more children and she definitely wants to adopt an Asian baby girl. Her family is what motivates her to stay strong and fulfill all of her dreams. She may not be the richest, but she feels the happiest she has ever felt in years. She has a career she loves, a husband who is super supportive, a wonderful son, and many more goals to achieve. She is truly blessed and happy, and that’s all she ever wanted to be.

…This is who I want to be, one day. This is who I will be, one day.
