Kellea Tibbs

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, author and poet, Kellea Tibbs, has been writing since middle school. As a poet, who, over the years, has participated in writing completions, poetry slams, writing poetry blogs, and writing workshops. Somewhat of a late bloomer, much like the late and iconic writer Toni Morrison, it’s only been since recently, in her 40s, that Kellea has decided to pursue publishing her work, to share with the world. As a result, Kellea writes poetry and commentary from the perspective of what she likes to call, “modern day adulting”, focusing on what life is like for the “40 and over” crowd, being single, dating, race, women, health/wellness, cooking, politics, breaking news, and pop culture.

BLOG. #90sFlashback. J. Crew Catalog

A piece of nostalgia, filing for bankruptcy. If you are #40AndOver and attended college in #the90s, you probably remember receiving a #JCrewCatalog in your dorm mailbox. It was probably the first catalog that catered to the college age student, so unlike the JC Penney and Sears catalogs of our parents and grandparents day. It was a hallmark of life on campus.
