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.

Note To Self

Don’t sell yourself short by changing who you are for the acceptance of others. Stay true to yourself and what you believe in. The way you think, dress, speak and eat symbolizes your uniqueness. The worst thing you can do is give that away because of the opinions of others. Love and Accept who you are.

PATIENCE is KEY. Gotta believe in yourself and your craft. Your hard work will pay off in due time. Just don’t lose or change who you are for anyone or anything

8 Track Monday:


Motivation 

Good Morning, Beautiful People.

8 Track Monday is a new series I’m doing every other monday, where I put together a mix of 8 of my favorite tracks. Monday is always the day we don’t look forward to, but listening to my favorite music while at work, the gym or running errands always seem to make the day go by smoother. So this is something I wanted to add to my blog, let you guys into my musical universe.
