Interview with Ms. Lonely Heart Vintage

Tell me about yourself and how Ms. Lonely Heart Vintage came to be. I went to school in a very southern country town and did not fit in. My style did not fit in and I longed to get to a big city, so I could feel normal. So I went to the city and my goal was to get into some kind of clothing industry. I got to the city and unfortunately, it was a lot of gigs of waitressing…

Black Friday Shopping

This year, I’m debating whether or not I should go shopping for Black Friday. For the past few years, I would wake up super early with my girl Kenni, to hit up all of the thrift stores. Here are some of my Black Friday finds from the previous years (2015 & 2014).   As of today, I do not plan on going out shopping on Black Friday.

My Menstrual Cup

The Boob Diaries #1

I gave up bras about 4 or 5 years ago. My boyfriend actually suggested that I stop wearing bras, and I thought he was crazy! I could never go braless.

It was so comfortable, and no one even noticed that I wasn’t wearing one (well,…

#BlackGirlMagic

Listen, I am so in love with this shirt. It’s starting to become a problem. I’ve already worn it three separate times this week. Don’t judge me. lol. But really, this shirt has been a great conversation starter and has even led to some insightful race-related conversations which I’m always excited about. I wish it were acceptable to wear the same thing every day, because this would definitely be my permanent outfit of choice.   Outfit Details: Shirt – Fresh…
