Claire Cares: Speaking at Harlem Capital Prep + Lala’s Winter Wonderland with Joseph Sikora, Young MA, Lil Yachty, and More!

Before the Winter Holiday, I headed over to Harlem Capital Prep to speak to the students and also present them with the proceeds of our coat drive and wardrobe sale. Though I was a bit of a grinch this Christmas, nothing gave me greater joy than sharing my story with the school’s 235 students and also feeling their love and appreciation.

Merry Christmas: Reflections on Christmas as an Adult in a Balmain Double Breasted Shearling Trimmed Suede Jacket From Net a Porter

Christmas used to be the most wonderful holiday of the year because of…presents. Christmas was that one time of the year when you were showered with gifts as far as the eye could see.

Barbies, Nintendos, and board games held court under that shiny paper that I took ultimate joy in ripping off.…

Perhaps it’s the way Black Girl Magic is floating in the wind, or the spectacular strides we have been making in the past few months that unequivocally point to 2018 being the Best Year Ever. I’ve been pretty silent on The Bomb Life tip, just planning and strategizing. With an impending move, a new hairdo and a new attitude, I have lots of hope and faith for a better future.

Claire Cares: Our Coat Drive at Harlem Capital Preparatory School

My last event for the year had a charitable bent: we had a coat drive and wardrobe sale at Harlem Capital Prep. I invited readers to come drop off coats for disadvantaged students to stay warm this winter. Readers stayed to shop Legendary and I’s closet, with proceeds benefitting the school. It was a casual Saturday, so I wore a Harvard sweatshirt (HU!!), gray jeans, and gray boots. I eventually switched into sneakers, because I was in there pushing boxes…
