Growing Up (And Out) Is Hard To Do

It has been over a year since I decided “Long Hair, Don’t Care” wasn’t for me. I’d been wearing long hair most of my life, and was afraid that short hair would look awful. I’m not a fan of fear. I walk right up to it and punch square in the face. At the end of my cosmetology school stint last year, I decided a … Continue reading Growing Up (And Out) Is Hard To Do

A Peacock’s Christmas: My “All I Want For Christmas” Wish List

; *Mariah voice* I don’t want a lot for Christmas. There are just some things I need. I kinda care about the presents, underneath the Christmas tree. Please don’t misunderstand me.

Fade To Black…

Alyssa Peacock: “Another for the folks”

Burrrr!!! Fall has arrived folks!!! I love all things that accompany Fall. Though I am not a fan of the transition from warmer weather to this Northeast chill, the changing of the leaves, apple cider, & Fashion Week make it worthwhile. It was 80 degrees one week then 50s the following.

My favorite part of Fall? I have an excuse to bust out my favorite wardrobe pieces. Fur, leather, & knits are my style poisons of choice. I am also afforded the opportunity to wear all black everything without the unintended “WTF” face from passersby. Fact: I am known to wear an entire black outfit in the middle of August. Judge me not!!!

I’m not particularly the “follow the trend” sort, but if I happen to like an item that just so happens to be on-trend, I … Continue reading Be Inspired: Gucci Fall/Winter 2012-2013
