Living My Best Life Tour: Aly & AJ 2019

Hey Guys!

I hope that everyone is doing amazing! As you know, I'm starting a new series on my blog called the "Living My Best Life Tour" and it chronicles all of my fun endeavors on my journey to healthiness and happiness. This is the second installment in that series, discussing my experience witnessing the live performance of my all-time favorite Indie-pop duo, Aly & AJ, with my play sister Ariel.

First and foremost, I will say that the entire show was iconic, to say the least, and I would do it all over again 100 times if I could. I literally shouted the lyrics alongside them to almost every single song they played and was perfectly entertained! With standing room only, the House of Blues was PACKED to the point of being shoulder to shoulder with fellow fans jamming out alongside the killer sister duo. We were all enamored of the combination of edgy navy pants suits with black booties, flawless vocals and their ability to do all this while playing the heck out of the piano and guitar!

The fun fact of this situation is that Aly & AJ's debut album, "Into the Rush," was one of my very first CD's that I'd ever gotten. I was given that along with Hilary Duff's debut album, "Metamorphasis," for Christmas when I was about 11 by my mom. That was over 12 years ago and I still cherish every song on that collection. Their second album, "Insomniatic," was also gifted to me two years later and I could not have enjoyed it more. 

Needless to say, to see them rock out on stage to my old-time favorites like "Rush," "Closure," "Chemicals React," and do a closing encore of "Potential Break Up Song" was a true dream and I am so glad I got to experience it. 

When I went to this concert, I was days off from cutting off the "love of my life" who I thought was everything I ever wanted and fantasized. It was soul-crushing, to say the least, when it all came crashing down after about of year of on-and-off dealings. But, I can honestly say that going to this event sucked the depression out of me and made me forget about him for a couple of hours. And THAT was beyond therapeutic. 

Thank you so much to Aly & AJ for giving us fans an unforgettable experience!

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
