It’s been about two months since I updated Peacock Under Pressure, and for very good though inexcusable reasons. I’ve been up for hours trying to go back to sleep to no avail, so this is as good a time as any to recap. Continue reading “Whatever Happened To That Girl?”
I’m sure by now you’ve read or at least glimpsed at my About Me section, so you have an idea of who I am and my background. I have a joint degree in English and Journalism, so clearly my love for writing knows no limits. But I am also very passionate about reading. Sometimes (often times), television shows are simply not enough. Not enough substance, not enough depth, not enriching whatsoever. And where reruns of Sex And The City or Mad Men fail me (it’s rare), a book will forever find success. Continue reading “Peacock Finds: Fall And Winter 2013 Book Reads- Biographies”
Considering this incredibly annoying cold that has taken over my life and wreaked havoc on Fashion Week, Tuesday night I rose to the occasion for the Alejandra G Shoes and Amara Swim “A Night In Marrakech” runway show at Falucka Lounge courtesy of Shoe Week and Smirnoff Sherbet Light.

This month has marked a monumental moment in time for me. It has been nine months since I started my website, and a lot of things can happen in such a brief moment in time. In a lot of ways, this is my child. Nine months ago I became metaphorically impregnated with the thought for this site. Nine months ago, I got up the courage … Continue reading 20k Views!!!!!

Last week, J. Cole had an unprecedented press play event in eight cities across the country (plus Toronto) to premiere his new album, Born Sinner. While I have been blasting the new album like I am listening to Hip Hop for the first time, I was unable to attend the event. However, one of my brothers in life, Lamar Carter, was on the scene. Read along … Continue reading Peacock On The Go: The “Born Sinner” Listening Experience: NYC
As you know, I am on a quest of hair growth discovery. After wearing my hair chic, sleek and short, I am ready to dive back into long hair, but actually take care of it this time. Au revoir, mon cherie short hair. I am woman enough to admit that the struggle is real. I want to do something different to it, and the monotony of … Continue reading To Trend Or Not To Trend? Box Braids & Yarn Wraps
This weekend, I hosted one of many events to come in celebration of my 25th Birthday!!!!! I am celebrating the entire year, so be forewarned. Overflowing wine, delicious food and sentimental chatter set the mood at the exquisite La Campagna Ristorante in Morristown. If you’re ever in Jersey, I insist you visit. They definitely know how to set the right ambiance, and the food is … Continue reading Weekend Wrapup: Twenty-Five And Fine!!!
Merry Belated Christmas Everybody!!!! How was your holiday? Mine was jam packed with love, laughs, and food!!! The thought of comida makes me nauseous!! I am the sort of the person that sees time and change as an opportunity to begin anew. I graduated from cosmetology school in October 2011, and before the month was over, I chopped off all of my hair. I became … Continue reading A Place For Every Feather: Organized Chaos
