Summer — I actually hate it.


I say so every year it comes along because every year I still mean it! It’s just not for me. And if it was up to me, I seriously would consider relocating to cooler land just for these few months! People think I’m crazy but my reasons are solid (bugs, scorching heat, sweat). Who likes that?


Like, the day I shot this look, it was so hot. Thankfully, I have a nice glow in these photos but really, I think I was on the brink of glistening in perspiration lol. Shout out to my glands for holding back for the sake of these photos!


But seriously, the only good thing that derives from summer are those AHmazing summer nights.


You know, when the sun is almost completely gone and you can stop fanning yourself at the bbq you were trying to fight sleep at after scarfing down x amounts of burgers. (Yes, I’m that girl so judge not!)


When I received these fun lace up booties from ASOS, I definitely had chill nights in mind. These lavender babies are perf for dressing up a casual look such as this super comfy H&M jumper. It’s seriously like sweat proof! It doesn’t cling in the wrong places and it allows your arms to breathe. I haven’t yet worn this outfit but I totally will at the next bbq I attend, probably on the 4th of July (if I’m not working, that is).


I’m looking forward to the fireworks, late night talks, amusement parks and long car rides that this summer will bring.



How do you enjoy your summer nights? Let me know!

    You are killing me with those shoes right now! I am on a shopping-freeze (for shoes), and my will power is not looking so good. Hahaha. Anyway, you look lovely! Summer is not my favorite time of the year either. I thought I was the only one. Ha! It is too HOT!!! Ugh! However, summer nights I can handle (as long as there are no bugs biting me- lol). I’m more of a “Fall” gal. Hope you’re having a great start to your week. God Bless!! Xx

  • 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).
