“Life is like a good black and white photograph, there’s black, there’s white and lots of shades in between” – Karl Heine
I’ve always believed there was somethin’ special about black and white photos.

There a million adjectives that come to my mind when someone utters the name “Rihanna.” Fierce. Strong. Electric. EPIC. are just some of the few and describe exactly how I felt when I attended her concert this weekend. I seriously love Rihanna and her concert just made me love her that much more. Everything about her is on point, from her amazing voice, to her music which has gotten me through some of my best and worst times in my life, her fashion, her IDGAF attitude, her swag…I honestly could go on and on and on. But I honestly appreciate an artist that is genuine and is serious about her work and let me tell, my girl Robyn works hard AF! Like seriously, just looking at her and how she’s impacted the world motivates me to do the things that I want to do and be the person I ultimately want to be. I’m a Rihanna fan till the death of me! #rihannanavy all day…erry day.

I just realized I never put up the rest of my pictures from New York. It seems like a lifetime ago even thought it was only a couple months ago.
Prayers and Best Wishes to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy!
