Let's Get Candid

Hello Lovelies,


I think it is about that time to get honest about a lot! I see you all as supportive friends, at Classic.Raw.Beauty. we are a close knit network of friends and family. So, this summer is not what I expected it to be at all! As you all remember in my "CRB Does Summer 2012" post, I shared a lot of plans that I had lined up in New York City, from natural hair meet-ups to Full Figured Fashion Week. 

Unfortunately, I missed out on these amazing events. Along with missing these events, the two internships I so graciously earned also went to the wind due to my failure to make it to the City this summer. I was super geared up to leave school for the summer and come back to North Carolina with many stories of excitement that the Big Apple could have held for me.

I know you all are thinking, what happened? Basically, trying to find a place to rest my head became a huge issue that I could not solve within the months leading to my summer in NYC. Without disclosing the negative experiences I have faced, I will simply say a lot of people I believed had my back were the ones to fail me when I needed them most. 

It is sad to say that my summer fell through the way it did, but I have made so many connections with those at Forever21. I love my job, even though it has its ups and downs, and I will never be sorry for how my summer turned out. God has a plan for all of us, and mine was not to be in the City this summer, but in due time I will be there. In the mean time I am taking it one day at a time, next semester I will be a senior in college and I have so much in store for CRB, stay tuned and faithful that I will deliver. 

Without you all, I really do not know where my career would be. I love you all! Until then,

Smooches :)

I am so sorry to hear that your plans fell through :( It must have been heartbreaking but like you said God has a plan for us and while this one didn't pan out, he is probably gearing you up for something bigger and better than you could ever imagine xo

Be blessed.
