Day 2 of no social media was not as bad as I thought it would be, having a pop up and not being able to post on social media about it. Instead I sent out texts to endless people and doubled up on Email blasts. Getting back to actually reaching out to people instead of relying on others to see an IG post or Tweet. 

The Pop Up was dope, a lot of creative minds and entrepreneurs trying to get their brands off the ground. I used to get excited for pop ups but now it’s strictly business and trying to be as professional as possible. Engaging with the potential customers and handing out endless business cards and stickers.  

Got some great footage and Jordan came by and got some shots of me in Entrepreneur mode. Made a few sales and networked with a few other brands, so it was definitely a success. Shoutout to the Carryout for having me and my brand. And a huge thank you to those who came out and gave their time or money towards the brand. Support is always appreciated. 

Recap video will drop soon!

Day 1.

First day without social media was actually a breeze, I thought I would at least have to look up a number and re download IG or something but nah not even an ounce of social media withdrawal in the first 24 hours. I spent the majority of the day out in the city shooting some new outerwear I've been working on.

Staying busy and reaching out to people is key. I have a pop Up Shop tomorrow at The Carryout DC, Its a new retail/Event space on Rhode Island Avenue. Almost directly across the Street from The Museum Shop another of my favorite local black owned businesses giving the city more Art, Fashion, Culture and Opportunities. The Carryout gives a "street" vibe in my opinion. A more underground feel to it, being just opening, and actually resembles something close to a DC carryout, a staple in any DC hood. The space is intimate but big enough for a Pop up to be poppin'. Tomorrow should definitely be a good time and I hope some of you G.O.O.N.S. make it out. Got some dope custom made pieces available and some old favorites.
