October .. November ...now December

It has been a while since I last posted on the site and I honestly have zero excuses as to why I haven't blogged in such a long time. It literally takes an act of Congress for me to blog post and I am not alone.

Its s plethora of other content creators that have literally abandoned our web sites (which is paid media by the way) and focused solely on social media. Even with Instagram and Twitter going off line a few times, we are still addicted to social media platforms. It's insane.

I have said too many times that I will post more here but I fall short time after time, but I have come to the realization that blogs may become a thing of the past. So I won't beat myself up about it too much and to post when I can, as often as I can.

Anywho .. my last few moths have been super busy, filled with trips back home, spending times with my kids and my dear friends. My street wear brand Smith & West launched via the Shop last month and I got some sales yall !

I broke down and joined Tik Tok ! I said for months that I would never join Tik Tok and now I'm here! Follow your girl @kingkeiciashanta! The hubby and I did a crazy Halloween Tik Tok that was hella fun.

I returned home to attend our oldest daughters birthday celebration and it was a beautiful night. Kei decorated her party herself and she did and amazing job! We had an amazing night. While in town I stopped by an event that had all my influencer friends in one spot so I popped up on they ass ! It was so good seeing them! I got the biggest hugs from them and we spent an evening over drinks and food. My heart was full.

Magic City Fashion Week is gearing up for another season! I am beyond excited to work with the teams to put on an amazing fashion show for the culture next March so follow @magiccityfashionweek on all social media platforms to stay up to date with all things MCFW!

Sustainable fashion is taking a bigger role in my life and I am excited to be working with new eco sustainable brands! I got tons of content coming in the new year and I can't wait to share these amazing brands with you guys.

Thanksgiving was everything this year. Baby girl came to visit us and we ate good, watched the Iron Bowl,( Roll Tide) and shopped for Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. It wouldn't be us if we didn't stop Neiman Marcus for some luxury swag. Shopping was everything this season!

We lost Virgil last week. The visionary, the disruptor Virgil Abloh passed away from cancer this past Sunday. The fashion world felt this loss, I felt this loss. Virgil was the force behind the street wear brand Off White, the first African American creative director at Louis Vuitton mens, and countless other brands. Virgil and his street wear roots was a driving force behind me creating my brand Smith & West. He was beyond influential and will truly be missed. Prayers to his family and friend during this time.

Sooooo .. that's been my few months in a nut shell. December is here and I am excited for Christmas and my Birthday! Capricorn season is quickly approaching saweetie and its going to be a whole vibe. I plan on finishing out 2021 strong and refreshed for the new year.

Thank you again to everyone that has purchased from Smith & West over the last few weeks. It is truly everything to be able to live out my dreams and its even more a blessing that you guys are doing it with me. More drip in the new year so stay tuned.

Be good to one another and stay safe !
