What’s Poppington: Nude Lingerie For Women of Color

2845339_orig-PrettynPoppington

I remember speaking with a friend at work about this line of nude lingerie for black woman, and while having that conversation I thought to myself my prayers have been answered. All to often when getting dressed for what ever occasion a plain black bra and pantie set just doesn’t fit the bill and when you go shopping you’ll most definitely find nude underwear, just not your shade of nude.

Well girls,fret no more. Nubian Skin has answered our prayers and they have an array of nude skin tones to select from, as well as they should, being that our beautiful black hue comes in many shades.

Nubian Skin founder, Ade Hassan, decided it was time for ‘a different kind of nude’.

Inspired by trail blazing women, Eunice W. Johnson and super model Iman, who created Fashion Fair and Iman cosmetics, Ade took the leap and created Nubian Skin.  It’s been an uphill battle, but every revolution starts somewhere.

Nubian Skin launched with a carefully edited collection of lingerie and hosiery to provide the essential underwear needs of women of colour.  Headquartered in London, Nubian Skin delivers worldwide and looks forward to growing the company’s offering and expanding its reach.

“Following the trailer of “Mzansi Style Guide,” we bring you the first episode of our three-part series which looks at South Africa’s street culture and the personalities that make up its creative landscape ….” By

Hypebeaste-PrettynPoppington

“In this segment, we visit concept store Area 3, sneaker boutique DIP ST. and local hangout Father Coffee, all of which have become bastions of light for the streetwear community in Jozi. Tucked away on the second floor of an inconspicuous mall, DIP ST. has become a mainstay for those looking for both local and foreign brands. While DIP’s operations continue to be hindered by crime (with founder Tusa Mamba putting a halt on sneaker campouts for the safety of his customers), the store and its surrounding retailers take pride in bridging the gap between rare, quality designs from Europe and the Far East with its loyal customer base. Check out “Braamfontein Scene” above and stay tuned for episode 2 ….” By

Whats Poppington: Jazmine Sullivan: Let It Burn

jazmine-mascara

On the drive home “Let It Burn” came on the radio, yes I still listen to the radio, and I swear this song took me somewhere that I haven’t been in along time. I felt like I was on a mental trip to the land of loves milk and honey. Not that I’m in love or anything, nor have I found the love of my life (that ship has sailed and sank) but It felt wonderful to feel love through music. That’s the reason why Jazmine Sullivan is one of my favorite R&B artist. Her music is true blue R&B with soul that has a classic funk. I love this single. Check it out and fall in love along with me.

Rita Ora has caught my eye again with one of her many looks. I’m not sure if she’s exploring different stylist or just have a need for changing things up, but what ever it is I like it. Her hair is bed time sexy, she’s wearing the plunging neck line extremely well, and most important her shoes are killer. That’s why they are posted first. I simply Love this look, Rita Ora is Poppington.

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

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.

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.

Whats Poppington: My Return to ATL and Meeting Eudoxie Ludacris’s Girlfriend

IMG_20140419_231813

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.
