Did you catch....


 So I missed the Live airing of some episode of BBW. Oops. but some other bloggers caught it. I did see they had a toga type themed photoshoot.

Holiday gifts: 5 gifts under $1000


I figured the easiest way to decide what gifts to give, I'd have to dig deep. Now a grand is pretty high for most non-family members, but it's grreat for anyone you love; a whole lot.

Things I Don't Miss About Having a Relaxer



There are so many things I hated about having relaxed hair.
I used to try and stretch my relaxer so i wouldnt wash it for weeks; esp if i was 2 broke to go to the hair dresser.
Scratching it too much and having it burn.
leaving it in until it burned very badly; then burning my scalp a few times.
Perms suck!!

Replacement for Stacey Dash on Single Ladies?

Replacement for Val or not? I am really not okay with this story. I guess you can say a huge part of me was hoping Ms. Dash would make her way beck on the set of "Vh1 Single Ladies". If you do not watch the show then stop reading now and go to Vh1.com to view the season finale.

Am I the only one who want these leggings? Beyonce's Leggings

The other day I was on some fashion blogs and gossip blogs and spotted a pic of Bey wearing these leggings that made me so crave shopping again. She wears leggings a lot like me. They are just very comfortable to me. And I am only 4'11'' so there is no cuffing involved. I haven't made any new clothing purchases in a year and some change now. So it's been so hard to really want things like clothing or w/e that I know I can't buy until I get a JOB. But my cravings come and go. and these leggings are in my budget too; okay not my actual budget but you get me right?.

Splurge
Alexander McQueen Butterfly Jacquard leggings $895














Not-so-Splurge:
ASOS Maternity Ikat Print Legging $21.82

Did you catch "For better or For Worse" on Friday!!


I did not get to watch this show on the premiere night. But the two episodes I saw so far are awesomeeeee. There was no laugh track so that is good. Tasha Smith and Micheal Jai White bring back to Angela and Marcus drama. But this time we the kids more and their fabulous house. The first eps the daughter that Marcus has with Kesha, whose name is Dominique go figure, calls Angela a hoe and says she heard it from her mama. Angela goes to tell Marcus to speak to Kesha about it. Of course he can't reach her. Angela still has her salon and has a very uppity friend who happens to be dating Marcus' business partner in the sports casting business. Fast Forward to the scene where Kesha and Angela are throwing down in the foyer of the house. I'm not sure why Tyler put that in there. The second eps ended with Kesha trying to hump Marcus at the TV studio and a friend walks in on them and runs out to tell Angela. I hope the next eps is as good as the first two.







New Basketball Wives coming soon!


Although the season doesn't start until Febuary, we have been hearing that there will be two new  "Wives" added to the show. Who is out ask. Um duh Meeka Claxton. Lol. I mean it was a waste to have even had her on the show. Not because she is hood or w/e, I really like her. But because this type of show just was not for her.

First up is Kenya Bell, Former Miss Michigan and her ties to BB is that she is married to Charlie Bell. They also say she was arrested for allegedly stabbing him a few months back, so here comes drama queen #1. I bet she clashes with Tami and/or Evelyn.

Second up is Kesha Nichols, Former Net dancer. Which is how she met her ex-fiance Richard Jefferson. Her dramatic moment that got her cast to the show, she was dumped-via Email- not to long before her wedding day. I can only imagine what was going through her head. Then she was kicked out of her apartment. Dang....girlfriend should've made sure everything was in her name not his. Just in case that would have happened.

Of course I will watch if I have the time. I will try and also do the reviews. The show starts in Feb 2012 and is filming in both NYC and MIA.

Black Friday Crowd Rushing into Urban Outfitters



Why is it so hard for me to get dressed? And tips for finding what fits for my size.

Yes I have so much trouble shopping. Not because I am picky but because there are a lot of places who don't sell my size. Yes forever 21 and H&M are okay. But i think i am getting to the age where i want to shop at the grown up stores now.

Where are you?? Pynkstarr?



O dear. I did it again didn't I. I  love my readers so much but sometimes things just get so outta hand that you want to just not do anything. And I tried not to get to that point. When ever I feel a little bit, I guess you can say "lazy" or procrastinate I tend to just not be motivated. Nothing to do with you. But if I feel down for whatever reason then videos are not going to happen and neither are posts. I think that is why I tried to make a plan. A goal of how often I blog  a week or make a video. I thought that this would help me out a lot. Yea it didn't. Like not at all. I am just not motivated to do much of anything lately. I think it's the weather or the holiday season. I mean I also have some other personal stuff going on as well that is really starting to get to me. And I am letting it bring me down and suck out my energy. It is pretty hard for me to make a happy post when I am unhappy. I think that they only thing that will bring out of this funk is to fact that I know I am helping someone or someone reads my posts or watches my vids. I will get my ish together and believe me before you know it, I'll make posts that will make you tired of seeing me. LOL.
So I love ya'll and stick around.

Men Office Looks



A few weeks ago a male friend of mine asked me about an ugly sweater at Target. The sweater was argyle with like some black and red and gray colors in it. Cheap polyester. I just hated it all together. It looked kind of looked cheesy to me. Then he goes, "I need a winter sweater" goes and picks up a sweater vest. I cringe when I see a certain type of male wear sweater vests. Not saying they all look horrible but most of them make the wearer look dated or very chandler bing-esque.  I told him that he should go more for quality not prints. Yes prints are okay on a sweater, but I am just not a fan of argyle. So I told him a plain sweater v-neck with a nice dress shirt underneath would look great for work and afterwards. Another guy friend of mine from school asked me about something regarding male clothing. He also suggested I do something on what men should wear for certain occasions. At the time I thought nahh, mostly women read my blog, why would they care about men clothing. But then I thought hey maybe I will post some male clothing suggestions. I used to work for a male clothing store, and one thing I know about most men is that they are simple as can be. And I would usually have to force them into trying on clothing or shoes all the time. Here is a simple everyday, male-office-work-look.

The Unemployed College Grad p3: Self- Assessment



I was reading a magazine the other day and in it they said to do a self assessment. Meaning take a look at all things regarding your career choices. the article focuses on career transition, but I saw it as a way to evaluate what am I not doing right. So here is what I did, I redressed my resume. I took away my old funky design I had on my resume and changed the formatting a little bit. If you can, ask a friend for their professional opinion on your resume just in case you have grammar or spelling errors. Or for current students or recent grad ask your career services adviser. Mine was extremely helpful with this process. Next I started my self-assessment, nothing too major just answer a few questions about myself.  Every time I take those I always get creative jobs. Like hairdresser or fashion…. of course right. So I answered the following questions about myself:

What do I like about myself? 
Do I like working with numbers?
Do I like working with people?
What am I good at?

Then I wrote my potential jobs for those like 20+ options. Very artistic options. Then I wrote yet another list on my dream job wants. 

Salary, Location, Dream Work environment prospective, Type of position I want. I am supposed to also write down my top 10 dream companies to work for. Now the top 10 dream companies may not be hiring right now, but they may offer something where you can make an appointment to visit to ask question about the field. Also maybe you can volunteer or intern there until you find something. This can also fill in the gaps in between work that many companies may ask you about. 

After the updated resume and self assessment I have learned a lot about myself. i hope that this really helps me and everyone else who reads this blog

Rip Steve Jobs, Happy Birthday Sandy


Today was a pretty emotional day today. I woke up pretty sick. And also my Doggy Sandy today would have been her 6th birthday. I miss her every single day. I love her soooo much and will forever. Then like around 8 my nana told me the tragic news. All I could do is tear up. No I don't know Steve or his family. But he is an inspiration to me. Since 2008 I have been an Apple head. I always will be no matter what happens to the company. thank God for letting us have the opportunity to get to know Steve and for having saw his amazing works of art. And I thank God for letting me have the greatest years of my life with my baby. RIP to Steve and my Sandy.

Bounce TV


So you all know I love the 70's. Like every show. Lots of the movies. The clothing esp. Just everything. It has been announced that there is a new channel called "Bounce TV". Where have I been. Well it isn't avail in my area yet. But according to the site, they feature an array of things to watch. From sports to old movies. I don't have cable so I had to get that box thingy and my fave channel is Antenna TV, which features Sanford and Son & Good Times. Now that Bounce TV will soon be available in my area I am just wayyyy too excited.
