Remember December

This is just a quick post to let you guys know I'm alive! I've been wanting to post some of the great things I've bought lately, but it seems like I need someone to follow me around with a camera, otherwise it never happens. I'm thinking about changing YFF's name and making it into a lifestyle blog; for some reason it just seems easier to keep up with that way. We'll see.

Last night I went out with some friends for drinks, and then we saw Black Swan (uh...hated it. I feel like I'm the only one, but basically I feel the same as this guy--spoiler alert. Though I will say the clothes are fantastic). I wore the amazing leopard print coat that Evans was kind enough to give me, along with a sheer black button down from ASOS:

A bunch of cool stuff happened this month! I was on the cover of Black Enterprise (it should still be on newsstands for a few more days if you want to grab one) and I was named one of TIME's Top Twitter Moments of 2010. I am so grateful for this year; thank you to each and every one of you who have supported me along the way!

  3. My boyfriend knows how much you inspire me that he went out and bought this magazine for me. You are doing your thang. I am so happy for you. Maybe one day I can do the same but with me being over 30 it's a little late for me. So I wish you all the success and blessings, I wish you acheive everything that I couldn't do. Much love. Janay
