Hey beauties,


I’m back (yeah, I know — two posts in a row)! I just had to let you in on some fashion news before it actually happens…I’ll be covering College Fashion Week as press in NYC tomorrow evening! So excited.


What is College Fashion Week?


College Fashion Week is basically our nation’s most major outlet for fashion-loving college girls to showcase the latest campus styles. I’ve always admired how it’s done in such a celebratory and inclusive way. We’re talking models of all shapes and sizes, guys. These runway models are real life college girls that have auditioned locally.


In its 5th year, College Fashion Week’s lineup includes our future leading fashion bosses including the women behind Ali & Ariel, Bow & Drape, ForayFrill Clothing, and My Social Canvas. CFW features 4 distinct runway shows in 3 hours. Yes, it’ll be a jam-packed evening for sure!


This year, College Fashion Week will be held from 6-9pm at 404 on Saturday, October 1.



After each runway show, attendees get to fuse with other fashion-obsessed young women and gather goods from CFW many partners.


Now you know, this is what I’m most excited about.

Free swag!


Their partners include…


  • Rebecca Minkoff — I can’t wait to see what swag is from this desginer! Her collections are always so vibrant and feminine!
  • Vince Camuto– I’m obsessed with his shoes — in particular, his booties!
  • Drybar — These are the masterminds behind the blowout-only salon idea!
  • European Wax Center — Hm, maybe I’ll get my eyebrows did. I’ve been letting them grow out for my birthday later in October.
  • Perfumania — Time to put the fellas in a trance, girls!
  • Hanes + Maidenform — Need I say more? These brands rep comfort to the core. Literally haha
  • Fitbit — What’s crazy is that my mom was literally asking me about this today! We both want one. You think they’ll give us the goods?
  • Bertha Watches — Trendy, yet classic.
  • KIND bars — Healthy and yummy at the same time. My mom put me on!
  • StyleWatch — InStyle’s sister brand! This is the mag where all the stylish bloggers get featured in.

and finally…

  • Essie — My younger sister is going to be so jealous. She has a collection of Essie nail polish. The brand has the best colors and drying time!


So many brands in one place! You don’t want to miss out.

You can go to CFW, too.

  • Never feel obligated to prove yourself to anyone. When you know who you are, that is MORE than enough ❤️
  • Throwback to last summer when I traveled to DC for the national Miss Black USA pageant! So honored to be crowned @missblacknewjersey18! I created a GoFundMe campaign called, “Tarah Takes Heart” in hopes to garner support to nationals, raise #strokeawareness and empower more girls through my platform! I’m super dedicated to not only talk about the physical ailments that plague the hearts of women but to cover all of the emotional. It’s imperative to take care of the very vessel that keeps us going, ladies! Please see the link in my bio for my GoFundMe story — hope you can support! ❤️
  • You know when you wait for the right moment to share something REALLY important? I’ve been planning to make this announcement for MONTHS now 😭. Life has been such a whirlwind and we’ve been seeing more and more of just how precious time is in this world. I’m realizing that there’s no such thing as a perfect moment. YOU have to create it for yourself. I have butterflies right now and that’s really rare for me but I finally am ready to let it out. Ladies and gents, I am your MISS BLACK NEW JERSEY 2018! 😭🙌🏾✨✨✨ — 
Please read up on my story on my #GoFundMe (link in bio) and more about the platform I have chosen to dedicate my reign to: stroke. My mom suffered from one in 2013, rocking our lives forever. But most importantly, her presence in my life has been the most life changing. It is because of her that I want to give back to the stroke community and raise awareness of the issues of the heart!!! Both emotionally and physically ❤️ Ya girl needs the funds doeee so go show majorrrr love to that gofundme and share button 😂 You can also donate through PayPal ( and Venmo (TarahSaint).
