Deemed the “Queen of Effortless Chic,” Lewellyn was known and loved as a style expert and TV personality with the the type of spunk, sass and smarts to back it up. The California-native’s resume reads like a whos-who of the fashion world, having held editorships atInStyle, Glamour, and of course ESSENCE — where she served as the Accessories Editor from 2006-2007. 

Lewellyn also became an author in 2010 after publishing “Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less, & Look Your Best Ever.” And while she was no doubt a beloved figure in the beauty and fashion industry, the world got to bask in the her awesomeness when she was selected to star on Bravo’s hit reality show “Blood, Sweet and Heels.”Lewellyn’s soaring career, hilarious one-liners and infectious smile were on full display. The show was also a testimony to her undying strength as she gracefully lived her life to the fullest despite her diagnosis.  

We would personally like to offer our condolences to Daisy’s family, friends, fans, and colleagues. We may have loved her, but God loved her more. She is with Him now. God Bless and #fuckcancer!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
