On the quest to change, and become a better Reggie Black a lot of things are being done differently, and being put in place. Got an email the other day from my homie Tab speaking some serious stuff that happens to be essential for ultimate Success!!! The few lines he referenced came out of a book titled "The Richest Man in Babylon"
Had to pick it up! Just started reading it! Its great, and puts so many things in perspective!
I will be sure to drop my review of the book once I'm done!

Kudos to the ESSENCE OF STYLE.
L'Rai Arthur-Mensah established
the Essence of Style to provide
her eye for fashion to those in
the entertainment and artistic world.
L'Rai was born in the cultured
and eclectic city of Washington D.C.,
but she was raised in various cities
across the country. Part Ghanaian
and Afro-American, it was her diverse
upbringing that caused her to have a greater awareness and
love for all things beautiful. She learned at young age
that image should be a high priority. It is then when she
learned how to piece garments together so that one would
look their best. Honing her skills from her grandmother,
a seamstress, she was taught to pay attention to clothing
detail and the way they were assembled.
L'Rai now uses that knowledge of fashion and her passion for
hip-hop and the arts to influence her unique style. She embraces
music from many artists and musicians in the hip-hop and underground
world. L'Rai has found a way to combine her love for music, art,
fashion, and expression of one's self by establishing the
Essence of Style.
In pursuit of my her passion, the Essence of Style was established
in April of 2007. "I wanted the opportunity to share my love and eye
for fashion with others."

If you guys didn't know, College Pros is an "online guide displaying the faces of the future." Voted by Vibe Magazine as one of the TOP 25 fashion blogs, they believe in those that believe in themselves. There mission is to display those who dream. They bring attention to innovative individuals "who grasp opportunity and strive for nothing but success." Here's an excerpt, to view the interview in its entirety check out www.college-pros.com.
Excerpt from BC interview:
So you decided to start the BLACK Collection. What were your first three steps?
The first three steps were getting all the legal, and tax documents in order that was first. The second step was getting advice from some great friends of mine that had already had clothing lines similar to what I wanted to do. (Shout out to Tabi Bonney). Just so I would at least have an idea of what to expect. The last step was to just get to work.

Hi everyone! I'm Karmin, and as you can tell, this is my first post ever on the Black Collection Blogspot!
I've been very busy working a 9-5, getting myself situated, and welcoming new opportunities that have come my direction.
So, it's about 11:45 pm now, and my back is killing me because I've been sitting in this same seat posting on various sites (twitter especially), and enjoying the last taco I bought from Chipotle earlier. I hate when I wanna heat up my burrito, but it tastes funny when the lettuce and tomato gets warm (yuck!).
Then, I spoke to Reggie earlier who said he was on his way to the West Coast, and I must say, I'm extremely jealous and hopes he has a severe case of jet lag (JK lol). And Reggie, if you read this anytime soon, MAKE SURE you get a "Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles" doggy bag and somehow sneak it through the airport back home!
Well, much more to come people. Thanks and love always!
