Betcha didn’t notice there wasn’t a number 4! It’s okay, neither did I. But you know what, it’s ok because I’m barely getting the hang of this Photoshop shit and Beyonce said we wake up flawless soooo….

Anyway! While perusing the nets on this fine and dreary Sunday evening, I decided to take my non-money having booty to the worst place on Earth to go when you’re broke. This edgy vortex of a poor fashion girl’s dreams is known as Nasty Gal and boy, did they have some cool shit in the accessories section.

Like this “HELLO” bracelet, which looks like its all I would ever need to catch me a man. Imagine me in the club, I spot a cute guy across the way who isn’t sure if he should approach or not – boom! I whip out my wrist which is properly bejeweled with this “HELLO” charm bracelet and I dangle it in his face. What self-respecting man would not come over to say “Hello” back? I can’t think of too many. Except for maybe Idris Elba, who is one of the few men whose coolness warrants much more than a jingle of my charm bracelet in his presence. Le sigh. Idris, what must I do for you to realize we were meant to be!

We’re getting off topic, but like many girls I luhhhhhh to online shop and I see a lot of cool shit, and even though I can’t always buy it, I sure can share so you guys can! We’re going to call this installment – Cool Shit I Found. 

Would you rock any of this? What cool shit have you found online? Sound off in dem comments!




What’s Up?!

I guess I should give a proper introduction to my new corner office on the web. Welcome to ANAYOTOTHE! I’m Anayo, clearly. And TOTHE is, well, who knows. Two things that inspired the title of this here blog: 1) I’m obsessed with Kanye West THEREFORE I troll the KanyeToThe Fan Forums and THEREFORE I’m openly admitting that I’m a die hard Kanye fan in 2014 THEREFORE I must clearly not have any sense, right? CLEARLY 2) My first name begins with the letter ‘A’ as well as my last name, so like to sometimes to think of my name as A to the second power. Like an exponent…I hate math. (Fun fact: I managed to get through my entire 4 years of higher learning at my so-called prestigious university by only taking one math class. Secondary education hack? I think so.)

Moving on, I just moved to NYC via the Bay Area and I figured it why not start a blog where I can document all the kooky happenings that the Big Apple has to offer? I’m a writer at heart and an observer by nature so it only seemed right.

One of my goals for 2014 is to broaden my presence in this world whether it be online or in real life. I’m gunning for both, though.

And with that, in the famous words of Chris “He-Once-Was-Fine-But-Turned-Out-To-Be-Crazy-However-His-Music-Still-Turns-Me-Brown” Brown,
