Diary Of A Fashion Designer: I Need Money


samnotepics1 031You can’t get this close to fulfilling a dream and let a small issue like finances stand in your way. I know I can’t and I won’t. I’m at the point where I need more money coming in, to move forward, and fund things like extensive marketing, fashion shows, hiring an assistant, and travel. So I’ve been looking for another, yes I said another(because I already have two), J-O-B. This is the part I hate, but I’m a hustler. And a true hustler will work a job they hate, to achieve that ultimate bottom line.

While I’ve been searching for another supplemental income, it made me wonder about other people, and why they work at jobs that they hate. It’s funny because sometimes people will excel in a position, make lots of money, and be as miserable as the person that makes the least amount of money and never moves up. It surprised me how many people I know right now, with six figures or more, that wish they worked somewhere else doing something else everyday. My dream is what moves me to even consider doing sales, or waitressing third shift. But I asked people, “What moves and motivates you to go to work everyday?” and this is what it all came down to:
1. Necessity
The number one reason people stay in jobs they hate is necessity. You have bills, a home, children; basically a life you are financially responsible  for maintaining. The dreaded Monday morning is overshadowed by payday.
2. Education and Training Limitations
Your training, experience, or degree may no longer be your passion. Fields like nursing and technology are exploding; but you don’t want to go back to school.
3. Fear
Some people are just scared to do an additional job search. There’s fear of ridicule from their peers, fear of failure, and fear of financial collapse.
4. Don’t Know What Else To Do
Maybe you don’t know what else to do. If you’ve been at the same company for ten or twenty years, how do you decide to move on? Where do you go, what do you do? You have to have a “realistic understanding of who you are, and what you want/can do.”
5. Comfort
You may be so comfortable in your current space, that you don’t want to leave. Even though you hate it, everything runs like clockwork, and that’s how you like it. You don’t mind trading happiness for stability.
6. Loyalty
Your boss may have given you an advance in a time of need, vacations, or even a big raise. People don’t want to seem disloyal by leaving a company where they have good relationships and good standing. They don’t want to feel as if they’ve left the boss that’s been there for them, “in a lurch.”
7. Benefits and Incentives
Sometimes the benefits and incentives in a position seem too good to give up.

  8. Thought It Was What You Wanted
When  you started, you thought it was the job you wanted long term. After a few years you realized that type of work was not for you, and you felt stuck.
9. Personality

Your personality may prevent you from branching out and chasing a dream because you don’t think outside the box.

10. Your Dream

You have to work the job you hate to finance the job you want…

And there it is, sometimes you have to do a little grunt work to get what you want. The experience, working outside my personal and entrepreneurial element: will make me a better businesswoman, boss, mother, and person. But I honestly hope I won’t have to do this for long…I’m not quite that patient.

Diary Of A Fashion Designer: The Turning Point


ZAZZLE2   There comes a time in every entrepreneur’s career when everything changes. You either bang or bust. Whether it’s for the good or the bad, you just don’t know until it happens. It seems surreal, but that moment is instrumental in molding the future of your brand. You’ll know where it’s going, as well as how, when and why.

TSXDH is at that moment right now. The wheels are already in motion, but the next seven days will pick up the speed of things. I keep asking myself if I’m ready, and the answer is yes. Then I venture into a little self doubt and wonder if I’m worthy of success, and the answer is yes. Then I face the ultimate question, what if I fail, and the answer is I won’t. From the initial conception of my dream, failure was just not even an option. As I’ve been putting this together over the years failing was not part of the plan, my vision was just too clear.

This is the turning point, I’m at the crossroads; with full realization of everything I worked for so close I can taste it. I did everything I said I was going to do, and consider myself successful, so now what’s next? It’s funny though, I always thought I’d have to see my first million  before I felt complete. You always think you know what success is going to look like, but it’s not all black and white. It’s something you have to experience on the inside. It’s a feeling that transcends material things and other people’s opinions. With that said, here’s a breakdown of what success looks like to me…

1. Money

I want to turn a profit. The bottom line is I want people to buy my products.

2. To be recognized as a brand.

When people see my logo, I want them to recognize it. When you see my artwork, clothes, or any products I create; I want you to recognize my brand identity, respect it, and then participate in my brand culture and embrace it as a lifestyle.

3. I want it all.

I want my career, my family, and stability.

So this is my turning point, this is it. This is the time to make shit happen. Nothing is going to stand in my way. As I look back and reflect, the naysayers and haters have always been around. Never in plain sight, but camouflaging and disguising themselves as friends. As I choose this path and leave the past behind, I also very politely tell those people to eat my dust. I’ve turned the corner, right onto the catwalk, and from there I’m going to take it all the way to the bank…stay tuned MUAH, aaand scene.

DIY Skincare: Homemade Facial Cleanser

The words milk and honey always bring good things to mind. You know they’re all natural tasty treats that contribute to your good health. Good skin was never on the list of things you expected these two to help out with. It’s as simple as a quickie facial scrub straight out of your cabinets.


Before there was a drugstore to buy your skincare must-haves, it was up to you to figure out a way to wash your face. Milk is a classic ingredient in the recipe for healthy skin. It has a dual effect and can be used as a cleanser while it soothes the skin. Honey traps the moisture in the, leaving a natural healthy glow.


A little bit goes a long way. One teaspoon of honey is more than enough to do the job. When partnered with a tablespoon of dehydrated or powdered milk, it creates a creamy cleanser.

Wash your face

Using a circular motion, apply the concoction to your face. Massage for 5-10 minutes and thoroughly rinse.


Pat your face dry. Apply a moisturizer that’s not oily. Drink lots of water to keep your complexion flawless. In order to maintain a fresh face repeat the process daily, drink lots of water, and exfoliate on a weekly basis.
