Hi Guys! Thanks for visiting my my blog! I'm Taissha (Gotay) LaReau, most call me Tai. I'm Puerto Rican, and I was born and raised in the Bronx.

Growing up, I used fashion as a way to express myself and I could always remember being so excited to go back-to-school shopping with my mom and sisters. Coming from NYC and living in the hustle and bustle practically all of my life, I decided I needed a bit of a change and went away to college upstate at Oswego, NY.

After pursuing my Bachelors in Marketing, I was eager to move back to NYC and get back to the grind. Fast-forward to today, I'm currently living in Astoria, Queens with my husband, Luke. I'm a Digital Media Recruiter by day, but on my spare time I enjoy brunches, dancing to my favorite jams, and playing dress up.

Keeping up with the latest trends has always been a creative outlet for me, so finding a place where I could share my best fashion moments and everything else I enjoy most is what drove me to start The Forefront; a destination where I hope to inspire readers to be trendsetters, live life to the fullest, and look pretty damn good doing it, all while on a budget.

I consider myself to be a practical shopper, but don't get me a wrong, I do like to splurge on certain items from time to time. I can't always afford to, but when I do, I like to think I'm making an investment.

At the end of the day, you don't have to be a big spender to be at the forefront, but you should always be one step ahead of the game.

I hope you enjoy reading, and thank you again for visiting. To stay connected, don't forget to subscribe to upcoming trends, tips, and more!
