Paying It Forward

photo 1

It’s been weeks since I’ve heard anything from the doctors. Well, maybe just 3 weeks. Not much has happened since I was able to make my “Last Chemo” poster like all the cool-kid cancer patients on Facebook. I did have the pleasure however, of going back to my alma mater King/Drew Magnet High School  and spoke to the girls about being a role model and modeling the role. I was invited by an old teacher whom I’d never even had the chance of sitting in on. He heard about my story and felt I’d be good a person to give them a beacon of hope that their struggle isn’t forever.  Their stories and fears were so familiar. Their tears were refreshing. I was surprised that my words could evoke such emotion. I asked who their role models were and one girl said she looked up to little old me! Man, what a blessing. I told them my role model was anchorwoman Robin Roberts whom they didn’t even know. They were so smart and seemed like they were just waiting and hoping for someone to probe and figure out their problems.

When I tell you that speaking to those students was the most humbling and satisfying things I have ever done, you don’t even know! I was so nervous plus I had a pretty rough week beforehand. I was feeling so low and down because my diagnosis and treatment seemed to be never ending! Spending so much time being strong and positive takes a major toll on me but the spirits, words and stories of the girls I met were gratifying to the point where I feel like I have no choice but to make it because I have to prove to them that it’s POSSIBLE!

I’ve learned these past few weeks that this life is not my own. My body is only a vessel that I cannot take with me when I die. There’s only my spirit. The legacy I leave on earth is so important to me. I have to be and want to be remembered by my deeds and words, not for how I looked. I feel that cancer has taught me a lot and be we of that, I know that I have lymphoma but lymphoma doesn’t have me.

Treatment Update: Done with chemo!! Another scan to check the progress of the clinical trial drug plus a bunch of tests before they schedule my stem cell transplant. All a waiting game but I’m praying patiently for patience.

Sprung in Spring? What To Wear On a Date!

Impress your Man: What to Wear on A Date

 With spring already in the air, we’ve got one thing on our minds: love! No one can deny that spring is the best season for dating: you can do both indoors and outdoors activities; it’s warm enough for dresses but not so hot that you get sweaty; the rebirth of nature is always super romantic; and we just feel like going out of the house and meeting someone! If your outfit for spring dates is what worries you, look no further: we’ve got some sweet ideas that you’re free to steal.

Cacharel dress + Mango pumps + River Island earrings + J. Crew clutch + Prada sunglasses

For a date night out, in a restaurant or somewhere elegant, you should dress as classy as possible without overdoing it. Make your outfit feminine by wearing a dress, but don’t show off too much leg or cleavage – this floral print number from Cacharel is knee length, high neck and short sleeve, but that doesn’t make it less sexy than a bodycon dress! Pair it with accessories from the same color palette, such as a pair of nude pumps (that make your legs look miles long), nude cat eye sunglasses, red earrings (which will make your eyes pop) and a red clutch. If the weather asks it, throw on a trench coat, or maybe your date will lend you his…


Zoe Karssen t-shirt + Marni skirt + Unisa flats + Miss Selfridge necklace + Ray Ban sunglasses + Tory Burch bag

If you’re having a daytime date, especially one that’s outdoors, the last thing you want is to whine all the time about your feet hurting or your pencil skirt being too tight! Comfort is crucial here, but so is cuteness. Pick out a knee length skirt that you can walk and sit in, and pair it with a graphic tee that shows off your fun side (extra points if you like science fiction movies of computer games!). Go for a delicate piece of jewelry, such as a small necklace, and pick classic sunglasses like Ray Bans. Flats are the obvious choice – who can actually walk in heels for more than 2 blocks? – and so is a messenger bag that can fit an extra sweater but leaves your hands free.
