NEO Store Front: Paint, Paint and Update

Painting? Check! The entire space is officially painted and I could not be happier with the results! The space is "unapolgetically pink" as my friend Kyla so aptly put it. I painted the first wall completely by myself and let me tell you, it was fine... It wasn't super fast or super fun but I got the job done. Well, part of the job. As I turned around to see how much was left for me to paint, I began to feel very small and very anxious. Which is right about where my pride checked out and my friends stepped...

neo's 2nd Birthday

neo’s 2nd year: the Year of Twos  Today, is the second year of neo. I think most of these sorts of reflections begin with an enthusiastic, “Wow, how time flies”, “Can you believe it?!?” and the like. But I think, my response is only 32% that and the remaining 68% is: “Wait, I’ve only been at this for two years?” Followed by, " OH GOD... I have SO much more to learn!"   Since, February 2017, I feel as though I lived a lot of life. I pray to God, I don’t look it but, I’ve experienced countless failures and successes. Which...

Cold Weather Style Guide

This is a comprehensive guide to help you feel your stylish self this Winter season! One quick caveat, I personally, believe that personal style is much more valuable, life-giving and intentional than following fashion is. Don’t get me wrong…. Fashion is fun, it’s art, it’s always moving and progressing which is beautiful! But, I’m afraid the fleeting fads and trends not only create a culture of disposability and waste but also the potential for judgement or feelings of unworthiness. I’ve felt this.
