Well lads and ladies, I started "It Can't All Be Dior" exactly 1 year ago on a lark that it'd be a fun way to spend time during my unemployment period. Little did I realize it would open employment opportunities for me and how many parties, shows, concerts, cats, cakes, cool sweaters, shoes and jewels I'd share with you over this year.
Please don't send presents. I already received some major gifts from just writing this blog, such as:
1. I used my voice: At times I got mad and wrote on things I found hypocritical like the Bedbugs story The Times published that was merely an elitist, bougie opinion piece

and many others...
3. I shared the many adventures I had with Mr. Taurus: A year ago we were on our infamous "break" only to get back together in May. We've been tearin' it up ever since from Atlantic City to Coney Island to Connecticut and more. I even took him home to meet Momma.

4. And, of course, I wore some funky ish: Documented for many laughs (good and bad) when I'm old and grey.
