A Car-less New Yorker’s Tale…

joyadaezebeautyI’ve lived in New York for 4 years and it’s been AMAZING. Growing up in a New Jersey suburb, I always knew that deep inside I was a city gal. I love NYC’s culture, art, restaurants, events and yes even the noise. It’s my city : )

Now, NYC and I have our love affair and all but there is one thing that comes to mind when it’s time to venture out of the city: where’s the ride? Before I moved to NYC, I sold my car to my sister Angela and never looked back. When my fiancé Obi moved to NYC 2 years ago, he sold his car, too. The reason? Owning a car in the city is a pain. Serious pain: parking tickets, where to pack, etc. BUT, a car is essential when I want to visit my fam in NJ or friends. So, what’s a NYC fashionista to do?

Enter Enterprise Car Share: an easy way to reserve a car for the exact time you need it. Making a run to Target or the grocery store and don’t want to lug it all on the subway? Enterprise has your back, my friend. All you gotta do is go online, reserve the car, then pick up your ride at the designated location, and you’re set! Recently, I had to make a quick visit to my mom in NJ and I reserved the car for 3 hours. Worked like a charm and I didn’t have to get motion sickness on the bus. Nice : )

Love Happens When You Least Expect… A TO Z

unnamed-1I love a good love story. Especially when things don’t go according to plan. That’s definitely me and Obi’s relationship. We’ve known each other since 2002! We met at college (Rutgers University) and were just friends for YEARS until we graduated and re-connected at a bbq. And now we’re engaged and running a business together (CurlSistas). I love telling our story because it was so unexpected! All along the love of my life was right under my nose, ha!

NBC has a new comedy about love and fate called A TO Z, a story of Andrew and Zelda- two opposites who meet by chance. It’s an off-beat comedy about falling in love in the modern world and all the things that come along with it! It premiers tonight at 9:30/8:30 c on NBC. Your Thursday nights just got funnier. #ATOZ

NYFW | The Day Before

nyfwpre1nyfwpre5nyfwpre4nyfwpre2Things have been very busy and very awesome here at Team JoyLovesFashion + Team CurlSistas. My new line of gorgeous natural textured hair extensions is launching next month and I started off this week with Kerry Washington on the set of Good Morning America promoting her new Scandal Collection! Fashion month is coming to a close and really wanted to share my looks with you all!

The day before NYFW, I attended a super cute blogger brunch for Harlem’s Fashion Row in downtown NYC. I was feeling really low-key-fab and decided on these Elizabeth + James boyfriend-style pants (that I was gifted on set with Refinery 29 + TJMaxx back in June). To bring the look up a notch, I added these sexy yet comfy Steve Madden camo print strappy heels!
