Beyonce-and-Nicki-Minaj-flawless-PrettynPoppington

Beyonce has given everyone the response they were looking for to the elevator brawl between her sister Solange and husband Jay-Z. I love her response by the way, it was a boss ass statement to make, while rapping, and to put some stank on it she has Nicki Minaj as a featured rapper. All of this you can catch on the Flawless remix . She’s a baddie can’t deny it. The lyrics that were recited by Bey are below and the tack may be down there as well so you can hear Nicki’s verses, Check it out.

These thots can’t clock me nowadays
You wish I was your poundcake
Boy you know I look good as f-ck
Wish I was your baby mama
Want me to come around and give you good karma
But no
We escalating
Up in this b-tch like elevators
Of course sometime sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Of course sometime sh-t go down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator
Goddamn, Goddamn, Goddamn

LuChi Royale-PrettynPoppington

The words quoted below are words from “The Genesis” page on the LuChi Royale website. Reading the statement below simply made me feel divine and one with my inner royal spirit. LuChi Royale delivers a luxurious feel to men and women who require the upper echelon in designer fashions. I for one have my eyes on the wool and leather graphic printed varsity jacket. I’m all over it, for real. I’ve fallen in love with this brand and their from my hometown…that’s right Charleston SC. I’m keeping my eyes on these guys, and you should too, they’re developing a culture.

LuChi Royale Clothing Co. isn’t for the average person. Its for those who claim much more than is offered. For the leaders of today. The originators. The Boundary Pushers. The Risk Takers. The Kings…Royalty. See everyone cant grasp the concept of the responsibility of a King. A King just isn’t put into place to rule. He’s there for the people, to lead, to protect, and to represent. Same goes for Queens. We believe our product embodies the life of an everyday modern king and queen leading there people to their prime.”

PrettynPoppington-New Balance

Ladies, if you love sneakers or love looking cute in sneakers at the gym, like I do, New Balance has done the most for us girls with their new Safari Pack collection in the classic 574 New Balance styled sneakers. The sneakers are neon multi colored with a color block design to add flare and a fresh vibrant look to the traditional New Balance silhouette. In the Next two weeks I will have a pair for myself, then I will be able to let you all know how they feel, wear, and rather or not my big toe gets smooshed when I jog on the tread mill. I cant stand that smooshed big toe feel. So, I will test these babies out for you before you all make your purchase. Check back with me in two weeks. for the Safari Pack New Balance Sneaker Review.

Amber Rose with a perfect angled/highlighted brow

Have you all seen the “new” brow shape that’s being worn by people now a days. These brows have a triangle shape and they are very attractive if done the right way, or you could look like a hot ass  mess if they aren’t done the right way. I for one like this new brow and have been wearing them for a while. I have took the liberty of doing another makeup tutorial, my second one, to show you fashionable beauties how to achieve and angled highlighted brow, the proper way.

PLEASE, I beg you, do not do this…if you like what I post and see some truth to my vision on beauty, fashion and style, the picture right above this paragraph is not cute, i’s  all wrong. Now, with that being said, if you like it, I don’t love it, but I will still respect you for doing it anyway, that means you have your own mind and you could care less what I think. Just keep in mind that its dead ass wrong. Any who, without further adieu, here is my new beauty tutorial to show you how to achieve an angled brow the right way.

Thanks to The Fashion Bomb Daily I ran across these pair of shoes that can be classified as baddies. Their sleek, extremely chic along with being sophisticated enough for a woman of age 45 and hot enough for a woman of age 18. With that being said, they cover a vast age range, so if your feeling them you should go for it.

Ayanna left and me Jenifer, with the braids on the right

I decided to go back to my old stomping grounds, ATL, because I needed a quick and easy get away to relax, sleep and shop. When I returned to ATL I had no idea that I would have the best time there. I went with my besti Ayanna Little (yep her full government) and we totally enjoyed our short stay. Our Second day out was breakfast and one of the highlights of the trip. We at breakfast at this hidden gem of a dinner called Ria’s Blue Bird. We had the cutest waitress named Arieis (sorry if I butchered your name) and the food was amazing.

The best part of that day was when Ayanna said, “hey that guy looks like Ludacris.” I turned my head in the direction she was looking and said, “that is Ludacris.” I knew it was him because of his girlfriend Eudoxie, who happens to be an extremely beautiful person. They sat at the bar right next to us and I couldn’t contain myself on the inside, but on the outside you would have thought that I had everything together; calm, cool and collective. Ludacris stepped away for a moment, and I finally  worked up the nerve to ask Eudoxie if we could take a picture with her, she said of course and asked if we wanted to wait for Ludicris to come back to take a group pic. Little did she know, I really just wanted the picture of her and I. Sorry Ludacris I LOVE your girlfriend I think she’s an amazing person and I follow her on Instagram. Needless to say we all took a pic and enjoyed breakfast after.

When we were through with breakfast we went shopping and came across a couple of the best boutiques I’ve ever seen and we met the sweetest hat shop owner in the world, with the best hat store in Lenox Mall. I will give all the details in my next post.

 

IMG_20140406_135020I went out this weekend to an all white party, Charleston Wears White III, very sophisticated event. I wore an all white peplum dress by Guess. It was the Scuba and Mesh Mix Peplum Dress in True White. I accessorized with gold hoop earrings with long gold tassels that accented the earrings. My shoes were also white and they came from Guess as well.  I was prepared for my outfit , but I had absolutely no idea how I was going to do my makeup. Below are pictures and my first tutorial of my look.

IMG_20140405_104756

First I started off playing with colors. I decided to do a pink lip because I love pink lips against my dark brown skin. All of these colors would have worked well because they’re in the cool color family opposed to the warmer color pinks. To make that statement simple, that means all the pinks that I selected complements my skin because they are in the blue family, not colors close to fire cracker red. Needless to say I was indecisive and I chose a totally different color then the swatches above.

IMG_20140407_115423

I chose this color combo, Lorac frosted pink and Liquid Lip color by Mary Kay

After selecting my lip color I was more than satisfied with it . I paired it with a very soft smokey cat eye and a smile.

IMG_20140406_133921

After everything was said and done I went out had a blast, (two party’s in one night) came home took the picture above and made my first makeup tutorial, With my cellie…at 2:30 am. Most people would go to bed. I’m a weirdo so I did a makeup tutorial instead. Enjoy ;-)

NIKE-CORTEZ-NYLON-PRM-QS-QUILT-PACK NIKE-CORTEZ-NYLON-PRM-QS-QUILT-PACK-1

While browsing a few blogs I ran across these unique  pair of Nike’s that has such a luxurious look and style to them. I’m loving the new look for the classic model sneaks. The quilted look gives the Nike Cortez such a grand lux style and vibe. I would certainly buy these. The quilted  Nike Cortez is a must have, in my book, right along with the classic leather joints too.

Classic Nike Cortez

The Nike Cortez has made its way into sneaker history becoming a mold that has stayed true to its classic build over the years. The Nike Cortez Nylon Premium QS “Quilt Pack” brings us three quilted styles of the Nike Cortez. Each shoe has tan leather Nike Swoosh and heel tab that completes the look on the three colorways: Squadron Blue, Cargo Khaki, and black. The “Quilt Pack” hasn’t received a statewide release date yet, but can be spotted over in Australia at Hype DC.

K. Michelle made her way to Bala Cynwyd, PA to promote her album “Rebellious Soul” (hits stores this week) Ms. K Michelle always looks amazing. Her hair was on point as usual, swag was certainly on deck, and her make up was flawless. For her interview with Power 99 she wore acid wash high waist distressed jeans, a black cropped top with cross details, 6-inch peep toe suede booties with a flourishing gold platform and a super cute black racing jacket that set of the entire outfit.

I have grown to love K. Michelle, and I know I’m not alone. Lets think and be real for a moment, she says what we all think and she does what we really want to do. K. Michelle reminds me of my crazy beautiful cousin that will get a little ratchet from time to time. I think the the TV watching world has grown to love her not to mention the girl has pipes, and she can SANG!!!
