8:30 Rant

Be that CHANGE. It’s never too late to be that person you want to be. change the way you eat, change the way you think and change the way you feel about yourself. We have to focus of bettering ourselves and inspiring people around us. We can’t get caught up in other peoples lives or what they think about us. Each and every one of us has a gift, whether that gift is sports, art or helping others. Don’t let that gift die. Nurture it until it’s ready to be used.  It’s time to reach deep inside and let out your dreams out, no matter the situation or circumstance. Don’t WAIT and don’t SETTLE. The time is NOW. Dreams are achieved through  sacrifice, perseverance, positivity, and most importantly time. Act NOW . Dream BIG. appreciate the little things until they turn into big things. I want to say I appreciate every single one of you. You guys inspire me every single day. Thank you for making this blog possibly and for reading my rants lol . BE YOU

Good Morning

Beautiful People

Never underestimate the knowledge , power and abilities you have. Don’t let   nothing get in the way of your dreams, not even yourself . If it makes you feel alive , do it . Regardless of what others have to say. It’s your life , your dreams, your passions, not theirs . This life we’re given is the most precious gift we will ever have. Don’t be afraid to fail. Face your obstacles, overcome them and tell your story.

Good Morning

Beautiful People.

I wanted to let you guys know I’M BACK . Last week I went to NYC for fashion week and used that as a break for inspiration and to refocus. I know I mentioned in my last post that I wouldn’t be using tumblr anymore, but after a lot of thought and research, I decided to continue to stay with it. Excited to be back blogging for you guys. I got some great things coming up. Hope you guys are ready. 


A Collected Perspective #2:

Dream. Explore. Discover 

Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week and I’m pretty excited, not just for the events and shows, but for the chance to explore and discover. I’m also eager to meet you guys, so If you see me walking around, please stop and say hi.I tried to hold a meet and greet, but the plans fell through. 

I truly love blogging and photography. I have had more ups than down and I feel like I need to take everything to the next level and use my full potential. I’m using this trip as a break to refocus and rebuild, so you won’t see any new posts until I return. I will still be posting pictures on Instagram and Twitterso be sure to follow my journey during NYFW. I want to give you guys a heads up of what to expect when I get back. 

1. I’m building a new website for A Collected Gentleman, so it won’t be through tumblr anymore. I will still be posting on here and answering questions as well as providing updates when new posts are live on the new site. But this blog will become more of a diary for my thoughts and inspirations. 

2. I wil be incorporating videos, so each outfit post will have a 30-45 sec detailed video of the look. I will also be doing video reviews of products I receive followed by giveaways and Q and A’s. So if you guys send me some questions, I will answer them through a video post. 

3. I want to add more of a lifestyle touch to my site, expect recipes for healthy meals, tips for skincare, and a lot more :)

I have so many goals and ideas that keep me up at night. but if there is  anything you would like to see from me, be sure to message me and let me know. This three-year journey has been amazing and you all have made it worthwhile.  I’m excited to see what the future has in store for me. 

Came across your blog and I must say that I am floored. I love what you are doing! Thank you for putting it out there and showing people that style is all about you, not how much you spend. Keep doing what you're doing. There's people out here (like myself) who appreciate these tips on where and how to look for deals. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. It means a lot to know my blog can offer you tips and advice towards your own personal journey. 


Good Morning

Beautiful People

You can become anything you want to be in this world. Don’t limit yourself and don’t let obstacles turn you around
