At first when I started this blog I never thought that I would meet such amazing, talented and interesting people. I also did not think I would gain friends from this. It’s been 9 days since launching and I’ve come to learn about a whole community of amazing, talented and extremely stylish people. Not only that, they have been beyond welcoming and friendly to me; technically a “new kid” on the block. Mercedes is one of those people!
A mutual friend put me in contact with Mercedes; I went to meet her one evening at Roman Nose and she was with her husband and a friend (both future Stylish JC Peeps) and I honestly felt like we’ve known each other forever. Mercedes is a natural beauty, her smile makes her glow! Most importantly she is a sweetheart and has this great energy about her. I am really happy she agreed to be on my stylish peeps post!
What’s your name? “Mercedes, its spelled just like the car haha….”
Awesome! haha. How long have you been a Jersey city resident for? “Since 2008, 6 years and I love it”
What’s your favorite hangout spot? “I love Keyhole… its a great local place, the windows are shaped like keyholes! it’s a really laid back spot”

A fun fact about you? “I was a backup singer for a reggae band for two hot months!”
