Just Go Along With It...

So I'm stuck in the house on a 70 degree California day due to intense stupid female problems and I only want to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's and eat non-processed snacks(summer is coming up ok?!).

While watching my favorite part of Breakfast at Tiffany's where Holly Golightly and Paul Varjak decided to try things that they've never done, I was inspired to stop running away from blogging and get back into the swing of things.

I also thought that it would be great to kick things off with a super fun random ramble!
So Just Go Along With It...

1) I'm soooo excited about starting "The Noir Unicorn in The Room" event series! Like, I could seriously scream because I was able pull it off, by the grace of God, with an awesome expert/friend/mentor of mines, Haneef Jordan!
I mean Queens were crying, building friendships, and changing their outlook on life.
"The Noir Unicorn in The Room"
is a fabulous and catered event series that provokes conversation amongst Black Women from ages 19 and up.
An expert touches on topics such as colorism, how we are portrayed in the media, and the steps that need to be taken in order to form a sisterhood.
I feel like this is my mission in life, my calling! I'm so passionate about this to where I have to tell everyone! My heart races every time I talk about it. What a blessing!
The next one is on June 8th by the way!:)


2) How evil are those "BasketBall Wives LA" heffas to Draya??!
I'm always rooting for the underdog because I believe that we all make mistakes and have a past. Now I understand that reality shows are scripted but it's damn near disturbing watching these judgmental positive vibes sucking snakes remind Draya of what she WAS.
I'm totally #TeamDraya, and if she were to take some speech classes(she curses A LOT! lol) and partake in some charitable activities and glorify her journey instead of her past, I would be more than happy to watch a Draya Spinoff :)

3) I have super awesome friends!
I absolutely adore all of my friends because they push me, challenge me to be great, and they support me! All of them have the most incredible energy and I'm always honored to be in their presence.
Being 27 years old, it's all about quality over quantity when it comes to my friendships.
Ladies and Gents, if you can't honestly say that you love your friends, it's time for an upgrade!
don't ever be afraid to make new friends!
I've opened myself up to new people and I have never been happier!

4) My obsession with Etro and Roberto Cavalli Spring 2014 for my personal style inspiration is REAL!

5) Relationship quotes are annoying like a mutha%$&@er!!! Stop this PLEASE!!!! Lol!
Like what are you talking about?!
Who cares! He sure doesn't! That's why you posted this! Stop it!!!
6) I haven't been in a serious relationship in like 3 years! Is that good or bad??
7) Sometimes I regret leaving my 9-5 job due to the financial set backs but then I think of what I was able to accomplish and realize that this is just God's plan for my life. Chasing your dreams puts you in the most challenging positions but my faith overrides my worry.
I would have never been able to:
-Start my organization "Noir Unicorn" and the event series "The Noir Unicorn in The Room"
-Wardrobe style for as many photo shoots
-Be a featured Style Expert for numerous events
-Style and be apart of Fashion Week Las Vegas
-Tap into my elementary school creativity(some of the best times of my little life!lol!)
I know for a fact that I will be successful and it's the journey that is most rewarding!
Well that pretty much does it for this Random Fun Ramble lol!
Thanks for reading and I hope that I was able to inspire you!

#CrysTips: My Top 5 Personal Style Tips

"Styling and helping women is my absolute passion in this life
What motivates me to do it is seeing the smile on the client's face when they see the final results. It gives me great joy knowing that I am able to be a solution to the fashion needs of others."
-Crys Quote
Sunday, I had the pleasure of working with MUA,
Urban Glam Gyrl
and Nail Artist,
Lipstick Mixtapes,
for the Glam Lounge of the Beauty-N-Black Expo.
It was an incredible feeling, being able to push "Crys The Fabulous Watson" or the abbreviated "CTFW", when it was just a blog that was created to be a creative outlet for me and a distraction to help me get over an ex-boyfriend almost 2 years ago (ha!)!
I gave personal styling tips, promoted my affordable personal style consulting services, and was able to network with fashion boutiques, women's non-profits, and pampering services.
This event was totally up my alley because it was all about encouraging women to be their incredible selves, all around, from the inside and out!

I think that people fail to realize that displaying your fabulous personal style makes a huge impact on yourself and the others around you. When you look amazing, you feel amazing which makes others want to be in your amazing presence!

This inspired me to give my Top 5 Tips on how to always stay on top of your
Personal Style game!
1) Know your shape!
Once you find out your shape, get to work on knowing what will flatter your figure and will make you look like SpongeBob Square Pants. Knowing your shape will also make it easier for you to filter the latest trends and make them your own. You always want to look nice and trim!
2) Try Something New!
The trick to evolving your personal style is snagging a "wild card" piece with you when you're out shopping. What's the worst that could happen?
Heads: You look fabulous and you've now upgraded your style game.
Tails: It looks awful and now you know what pattern/style/color to stay away from.
It's a win win situation!
3) Stop Wearing Grey!
Can you ever think of a time when you've heard someone say that grey was their favorite color? ...and if they did tell you that it was their favorite color, didn't you kind of feel bad for them and offer to buy them a pink sugar cookie?
Exactly! Grey has to be one of the most unfabulous colors in the crayon box!
Never have I seen this color truly compliment a person's skin tone or brighten up a person's mood. Opt for black, white, or colors; whether it be for work wear or off duty.
Get out of the "Grey Area" in your relationships, career, and love life!
You're welcome.
4) Behind Every Fabulous Girl is a Fabulous Tailor
I have stated this many times on numerous posts!
I am a firm believer in tailors and I am a huge fan in the work that they do for me, from hemming my vests from a thrift shop trip to replacing dull buttons on a classic coat.
It's the easiest way to get that Tom Ford fit on a Target budget!
Looking tailored screams quality, I'm important, and "Oh, I valeted my car" lol!
Look to yelp for the best tailor in your area and befriend them stat!
5) Always Keep an Emergency Wardrobe Kit on Hand
What's awesome about being a wardrobe stylist is always having my awesome styling kit with me.
Now I know the average woman may not need to keep a steamer in their car, but they most definitely need to keep double-stick tape, safety pins, makeup sponges(awesome for getting rid of deodorant marks!), a lint roller, wet wipes, and a Tide To-Go eraser!
These little God-Sends are must-haves for every fabulous girl on the go.
Keep them in your purse or in your car
I'm a huge fan of the Minimergency Kit! They fit into almost every purse and they even have them for men for only $16!
