Hello Everyone!
For many, the goal as a young adult in college is to decide what career to pursue once those four years come to an end. Some never do, and some stay longer because they do rather late, but I feel that I have an I’m right on track. Communications with in journalism is the field I have chosen and public relations is my area of concentration. I believe that concentrating in PR allows me to become well rounded in all the aspects of journalism. I am learning each aspect which will allow me to represent someone from a full rounded perspective. In this day and age corporations are leaning toward hiring people who are talented in multiple areas. Being a great PR practitioner along with being a broadcaster, writer, stylist, and creator shows my variety and innovative side. As I move forward in my education, my goal is to acquire even more skills, networks, and culture. 
Within the field of public relations my focus is corporate in the long run. I want to runPreview the public relations/ public affairs department for Estee Lauder cosmetics. I have a passion for beauty, style, and trends therefore that is my focus in PR. Although after graduation corporate is not my pursuit. I also have a passion for entertainment and international relations. I want to take my chances working as a publicist, for a firm, or for a personal company within the entertainment industry. I enjoy the comradery within the issues and I enjoy the media relations aspect of the industry; I believe that I can thrive there.
My main goal is to expand my own firm in an international corporation. I am in the first stages right now of developing my company; KaylaMonayPR . I specialize in the beauty, design, and cosmetic industries. I represent:
·        Fashion designers
·        Stylist
·        Make-up Artist
·        Bloggers
·        Hair Stylist
·        Cosmetic Companies
·        Hair Companies
·        TV Personalities
·        Interior Design/Home Furnishing
·        Beauty PR
·        Fashion PR
·        Celebrity PR
·        Extravagant Events
·        Branding
·        Crisis Control
·        Social Media
·        Luxury Public Relations
The steps moving forward from here are getting incorporated, a logo, website [which is currently being designed], client, then farther in the future a physically location.  Like many PR firms out there such as AllsionBrodPR and Haute PR, it is clear that success is achievable but as an African American women there are other aspects that may be more difficult. Nevertheless I have confidence in my abilities, my infatuation, and my passion for the profession and the industry. Anyone looking for representation feel free to email :

I plan on designing the layout and interior for my office one day. 

Below is a video from StillBeautyPR that is really awesome. It has inspired my future endeavors.

Trenched Dots

Good morning everyone! I had a Job interview yesterday that was very exciting! I wanted to wear something professional but still casual and chic. I think I came up with a great look for our often changing DC winter temperatures. In actuality, this dress is rather short for a business setting so I would not suggest it if you work in a strict corporate environment. 

 Excuse my belt hanging!

These are the best cupcakes I have ever had in the Washington, D.C. area! Leaving my interview, I walked by an HAD to get one. I got red velvet; they are extremely moist an the butter cream icing is heavenly.  If you live in D.C. look out for a bright pink truck that says 'Curbside Cupcakes'. They are usually sitting on the curb of a highly populated area downtown. If you would like to know their exact locations throughout the day follow them on twitter. The lines are usually long because they are Uhhhh-Mazing! BTW I GOT THE JOB!

R.I.P Whitney Houston

I am not going to say much but I want to take a post and a moment to honor one of the greatest voices of all time and a true legend, Mrs. Whitney Houston. She was a beautiful women and artist whose life was cut short, but whose music will live on through almost everyone. I hope that this tragedy shakes people out there who dealing are with substance abuse an forces them somehow to obtain help. I keep Whitney's family and loved ones in my prayers. Amen.

Morning everyone!
I hope everyone had a great Friday night. I am getting my tattoo finished next weekend and I was looking online at a lot of different versions of it. I am getting a Bird of Paradise, which symbolizes natives to south Africa and represent joyfulness and (not surprisingly) paradise itself. Its meaning means a lot of me culturally and spiritually. It is bearing an unmistakable resemblance to a brightly colored bird in flight but what many people don't realize is that it is not a bird at all, it is a beautiful flower. I have posted a picture of the actual flower and some different version tattoos of it below. 

Other body art I LOVE!
