29 Rooms of inspiration
September 13, 2017

Inspiration is something you can gain by using your five senses and causing you to apply or evaluate how you are or will leave a footprint on the world, your life or relationships. Creativity is visible ambition fueled by the inspiration of retelling HISTORY, bringing enlightenment to YOUR story or shedding knowledge on a relatable impactful topic!

I attended Refinery 29’s 2nd Annual 29 Rooms an interactive art experience. The remarkable event ran from September 8th until September 11th. My take on the experience of the many forms of art displayed was and still is days after in 3 words are: memorable, impactful and MOTIVATING! Why? Well, if you attended you would feel the same sentiments and then some if you did not attend one of two things. 29 rooms will be transporting their talents to L.A. December 7-10 visit http://www.refinery29.com/29rooms/ for more information.

The 29 rooms are curated to allow your inner child to explore, play and live in the moment. The theme of this year was “Turn It Into Art” which encompassed everything from sports, old school traditional spins, music, women’s rights and catharic experiences sprinkled with magic. Madame Gandhi and Jen Mussari created a women empowerment themed room that inspired you to put on inspiring boxing gloves painted with a strong message of ‘The Future is Female.’ As I took out some of my aggression on the boxing bags creating a symphony of sounds. I realized as a female we are making strides however, we still have a ways to go.

Jake Gyllenhaal created a room that allowed you to escape from yourself with deep thought. Stepping away from advanced technology (aside from posting; of course) and really taking it back to the basics. When asked to ‘put on paper whatever is weighing you down, then shred it and feel the power of letting go.’ It did not stop there you actually had the opportunity to shred it MANUALLY. How cool is that!

Juicy Couture added a winter wonderland landscape themed feel in the summer, summertime introducing the Glacé Getaway room. The room had an arctic artsy feel decorated with fake snow as you became a figure within a snowglobe. The Viva La Juicy Glacé fragance was light and floral. I appreciated the sample sized tube as I entered you gained a new customer Juicy; nice touch. 

Cadillac stood out to me not only because it allowed me to have a photoshoot with the open space lol let’s just say I “dared greatly” as the hashtag suggested. Cadillac saw an untapped opening as an established car brand and collaborated with Jason Wu to target an audience in an innovative way. It was a canvas that you added your style to as the display deconstructed the car and, dared you to utilize what existed and what you could not reach or touch.

Overall, it was a great experience that is Chanel Speedy Approved if you have the opportunity to travel for a day trip or you are a local do yourself a favor check it out. It is a super fun way to spend a day or days navigating through rooms of inspiration, motivation and parallel emotions you may have or expressed prior in multiple art forms. Special thanks to Nasdaq for featuring me on their Times Square tower as I was feeling empowered, ambitious and confident and turned it into art incorporating fashion.

What is love to you?
July 15, 2017

After having a great conversation about LOVE! I realized a few things: we all grow at different paces and phases, love loss is not necessarily a loss if you were not ready to commit fully and we all are in need of reaching our full potential of being in love to recognize it if it is ever to resurface AGAIN!

To love, have love for someone and be in love with someone are three different scenarios. You could love someone and not be in a relationship with them. The same as being in a relationship with someone because it became your identity and is familiar to you but later on you realize you are in love with someone else.

In the art of conversation we learn that asking the right questions will set the answers free. Why does everyone love me? Why does everyone fall in love with me? Why haven’t I had a love to my full capacity yet? All are questions that were posed to me. However, I am not the person who was on their love journey to answer the questions risen to me. I was not the person you poured your heart out to in order to understand why love has eased passed you.

I am merely the person to help you seek your wisdom to lead you to the truth. If it was never felt how do you know you had it? If you had it and lost it how does one recognize when it is real again? This is my stop I am going to let your train of thought be processed as I make my exit. You will know once you reach your destination for the desired connection. Until next time blessings.

As your train of thought ran processed his feelings, concerns and personal definition to my posted question was so eloquently answered. This is why Darrøn McM is the feature of the month. Stay tuned as you will get the inside splash of a males perceptive of the topic at hand. See below for the response that blew me away and had me singing like Ciara “I’m speechless/Ahw, you got me speechless/I-I-I-I’m speechless I-I’m….” Yall may think I am kidding because I play all day hence the picture below but I am so serious. 

Splashy readers PREPARE to be left sitting wherever you are in the world with your mouf [aka mouth] ajar after this knowledge chunk hits you TUH. This is why I leave people on read if you arebnot doing your daily mental exercise to workout the kinks to keep me interested. So yall can keep your WYD texts.


I am icing my brain; it hurts when it doesn’t see words formulated into a sentence. Why you ask be-cause I automatically think of calculus and letters equating to numbers. On top of me thinking about what the letter means in a sentence and by the time I figure it out my brain has an attitude with me. I didn’t send the text RELAX! Now I have a headache and the screen light is bothering my eyes I am tearing up in my eyes I have a pack of tissues by my side. See how I am going through it. No you don’t get a response my eyes need to rest sir. Sheesh I really was just in my feelings huh. True story lol. Did you laugh? Did you smile? Did you say only Chanel Speedy? If so, GOOD! I was a comedian in my past dream this is standup on the turn up as you wake up as I splash you in. 


Without further ado I invite you to read the interpretation of love by (drum roll please) a little louder it is his first time or anyone for that matter being featured on my blog. OK perfect give it up and show your love for Darrøn McM!!!!!


Yeah there are definitely many interpretations to what the concept of love is. To me love is a placebo that people use to give meaning to something or to make someome or something feel important or to even fuel your own ego. Especially nowadays people just throw the word around and it decreases it’s value with every passing moment. 

People get addicted to the concept of wanting to be desired or need to get that high of being wanted or needed and be apart of something bigger that it takes over their state of mind and they build up their own fabrications that leads directly to their own failure. So when you ultimately break it down love comes down to using the placebo of what the feeling of “love” is generally fantasized as by society to mask the inner narcisstics inside of us that we try to keep at bay.


If you have a different interpretation of what love is start the conversation in the comment box. Speakkkkkkkkk

Sorry… But Not Sorry by Chanel Speedy

Somewhere someone is searching for you 

in everyone they meet

Sorry I outgrew you

Sorry you didn’t get it on the first try

Second chances are not always granted

Nor go in your favor

That’s life next time don’t take that person for granted the first time

I am highly favored yet seeking teachings of Him the most high

Teaching lines, lines teaching you how to treat thee

Your loss no settling in any category

Not my monopoly

I found better for ME hence there is no WE

Sorry… But not Sorry 

Dust Settles I Don’t/I Love Me/Celebrate a New Chapter I’m being selfish with me/My gentle soul is freed/Sorry… But not Sorry
