Welcome to the Madame Esquire! This blog was created in 2008 as a way for me to cope with the different challenges I was facing as a young single mother entering law school. My life has always been interesting to say the least. Nothing is ever simple, nothing ever happens normally.
A few years ago, my BFF dubbed me “the anti-social social”. Why? because I was and still am the most anti-social social person she knows. To the naked eye, I am a socialite, a social butterfly if you will, but little do you know, I am actually not as social as one would think. Truth be told, I hate social events, unless I am with my crew of course. I hate networking and my ideal situation involves Netflix, an order from Bed-Stuy Fish Fry, pastries from my local bakery and a Lime-A- Rita. (although lately I have been on the Coconut-Rita).
The posts on this blog are mostly based on my personal experiences. It’s a glimpse into the life of an anti-social socialite who is full of wit and cynicism. I write to entertain, but I also write to get people thinking. Each posts has a call to action, they all have a “moral of the story”, they all call for anyone who reads them to be open minded and objective. Madame Esquire started out as a way for me to escape and figure out my life, but now it has evolved into a space where I address real issues affecting real people, it is a space where I can be vulnerable while helping others face issues they otherwise would never face. It is a space where I can own my title as the Anti-Social Socialite and not give a damn about what anyone has to say about it.
If you are looking for a space where you can both learn and laugh, this is the space for you!
Very truly yours,
