Boycott ordinary. Be extraordinary. Add a little Peacock to your life
Author: Alyssa Peacock
Alyssa Peacock started her trek to success long before she could comprehend what was to come. A true-to-form Aquarian, her type-A personality has led her on inconceivable adventures, and gifted her with an open-minded scope of the world at large. Graduate of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ with a dual-degree in Journalism and English, this Jersey City native was propelled into the sphere of entertainment as an event correspondent, then briefly as a plus-size model before inevitably becoming a full-fledge pupil and aficionado of style. Thanks to her sense of wit and undeniable charm, Alyssa was afforded the opportunity to have her eye for fashion published in Giant Magazine and its HelloBeautiful.com counterpart. Now, at 24 years old, she is ready to set out on her own path, on her own terms.

I will be giving feedback on products ranging from skincare to hair as regularly as possible (Mama has a budget).
That was how my year began. Nothing would bend to my will.
I love all things New Year’s Eve. Standing on an almost tangible edge into the future, the feeling of freshness and newness excites me. It encourages me. It allows me to move into a literal and figurative new dimension. Amore.
But this year? This year though? Pfft. Let’s recap, shall we? It’s my blog so yes we shall.
It has been a bit longer than I anticipated since my last post, but I explain what had happened (lol) in the first vlog of #TheYearOfOurLordJesusChrist2017. That hashtag is also explained for those that just can’t understand.
I think Target really understands how to merge high fashion appeal with mass market prices. In the past, I have waxed on and on about their beautiful creations that make me unapologetically salivate (see: Prabal, Phillip, Peter). So it’s no surprise that the Altuzarra collaboration continues to perpetuate my praise.
I hope you didn’t think because we’re taking a break during the revamp that we aren’t still the go-to place for all your sartorial needs. The upgrade is coming folks. I hope you’re prepared. In the interim, Christian Louboutin has released the first images of his inceptive beauty collection with six signature nail lacquers available August 2014.
