SCANDAL

Just to let ya’ll know, I am a Scandal freak. I have been a gladiator since Season 2 ( I went back and watched season 1) no body can tell me natta thang, when Scandal is on. Like Olivia Pope is in the ranks with Beyoncé in my book. When Ms. Pope speaks it betta be silent. Ya’ll don’t know. Okay let me get along. So as we all very well know The Limited and Scandal has paired and birthed a collection. So I checked this out cause I want to feel as fierce, hunny, as Liv! So, the line was impressive, it is the style of Olivia Pope. They went for the correct target market, a business woman that wants to look and feel sophisticated, educated and powerful (because we all know thats how Liv feels, especially when she “man-handling” Fitz). They did an amazing job, if I worked in an office I would wear the collection; when I want to exhume “bow-down” when I walk in a room, that collection would be my go-to. OBJECTIONS: The jackets doesn’t have that structured flare that Olivia’s does in the show, know I know everything isn’t going to be the exact same, but I feel nowadays designers want everything to be tight and short not TAILORED. Two totally different things. Tight is, I can see the seam line of your panties; tailored is, it accents your figure. Now back to the jackets. When I found out about this line I’m like “yeah, first thing I’m buying is a coat” because I love the coats she wears but I was disappointed because it didn’t have that structured flare look. But really that’s my only objection. I think it’s amazing, otherwise, and will def be a huge success.

If you watch Scandal, tell me your opinion.

Happy hunting guys!!

Oh, and don’t forget to watch Scandal!! What would Liv do? Watch Scandal!Scandal_TheLimited_Coat.001

What Comes on Tonight?

sleepy-hollow-poster

When the show first aired my sister had me and my mom glued to the TV when this show was on. I love the characters and the twist(although some are predictable) but when we found out the sin eater was Ichabod’s kid, I was like “oooohhhh, he wasn’t ready”!!! *mind blown*. I was really hoping for some “we more than friends” between the two mains but then I realized that would def take away from the show. I think they should stay as is, if they did hook up it would so ruin the show, but I def need to see Abbie get some type of loving cause Regina and Ichabod getting too much right now hahaha. One dislike though, can somebody please give homegirl a better wig. Like I know its a wig. Somebody call Beyonce stylist and get her a lace front or something, a sew in at least, I know her hair natural but get her a silk press. Just do something to her head cause I can’t take it no more. A good black main character since Olivia Pope(love that women and her weave be on point, except when Fitz mess it up) and her hair looking like that. UNACCEPTABLE boo boo! Fix it Jesus.  So tonight as the sun goes down, the temperature gets colder, and the moon glows bright we will meet the town of Sleepy Hollow again.

Ya’ll better be watching!!

Happy Monday peeps

A Whisper of Air

Feeling the cold air on her cheek

she blushed,

he used to have that same effect

 reminiscing about the past 

no longer having unwarranted emotions

Laying in his bed

the TV a distant sound

his nose against her jaw bone

his hand on her lower back

she could help but giggle

then laugh

she was ticklish that night

“you are so goofy”

“no I’m not” she laughed

“I think thats what makes me like you” he whipsered

she left the memory at that.

Third look into Fall

hunter2

hunter

As I wake up this morning I find myself slipping more and more under the covers, I need warmth and immediately, hunny. Knowing I got stuff to do, I take my shower decided to wear some deep green jeggings, a black and white splattered URBN tank (alcohol, caffeine, nicotine), a black crochet cardigan, and some black suede booties. Off to my meeting I go. I don’t believe I can detect weather to save my life. I’m walking to the lobby thinking I’m cute get to the double doors and I walk outside in the Pittsburgh air and rushed back inside. Lord, was it cold!!!!! and not just cold but windy cold. I was like uh uh , we don’t do that boo! But see I had too because all my Sweater Weather clothes are still in NY. So I brace myself and walked like someone was chasing me, but in a cute way. And as I’m walking I began to reminisce about my warm clothes and how warm they kept me and the warmth my blanket was going to offer me when I went back to my dorm. Now, I think I should clear something up. I hate SUMMER!!! and LOVE the FALL/WINTER!! I like the cold air and hot chocolate, I’m so excited. I just don’t like being ill prepared for it. Last year it wasn’t this cold around this time, I don’t believe, don’t quote me on that. So for some reason my brain isn’t catching up to the fact that it’s literally basically fall. I walked past like 73 trees and I guess my brain acted like it didn’t comprehend that leaves were falling off the trees. Now, I’m at the stage of making a checklist of my fall must-need,must-haves, and wants. Because see, those all three totally different things hunny. Once the snow starts, and how it feels today that may be pretty soon, my Hunter babies can get through anything plus their extra fashionable, they add that structured feel to any look (in my wardrobe). haha

Talk to me, tell me a few of your must haves for Autumn(I just realized I like how AUTUMN sounds) and Winter!!??

Sex and The City

She held herself tight as she rocked back and forth

Trying to control her tears

they felt hotter with each stream

She just knew it was the end of her, she couldn’t

On the floor, she felt as safe as she could

If she went into his arms

. . . . . . .

she knew she wouldn’t recover this time

Too powerful, her love for him consumed her too

But she couldn’t hate him

Only cry out

He was unsafe

without her love

and she knew it

and he finally realized it too

I Found My Life!!

I was having a boring OFF day, yup thats right- no work, done with classes for the quarter ( I passed them all, whoop whoop!!). So I decided to do my hair, clean, my roommate made chicken ( Thank God for culinary majors), and a few peeps dropped by. So we eatin, chillin watching Sex and the City (mind you it’s two guys and my roommate- awks much, but I didn’t care. You can’t turn down SJP!) I’m in my feelings (hence the post above) and I decided to hop on and see what the other half of the world is talking about. Now as I was scrolling through my feed, I saw this amazing runway look and thought “that is so me!” haha. I found my life and got out my feelings hunny (Tamar voice) The pixel print, something we will see a lot soon. I believe the skirt is what caught my eye the most. I love the crochet look and the flow is a plus. I think I’m gonna have to make a duplicate (*cue evil laugh). And as we all know I love a dramatic hat. This look is a must have for fall, especially for me. They did an amazing job with this look; the entire collection.

Happy Thursday flower children!

URBN

In 1970, four students were shot and killed at Kent State Uni. Recently Urban Outfitters designed a sweatshirt with the colleges logo and what looks to be splattered blood. Kent State isn’t too happy about that.

“We take great offense to a company using our pain for their publicity and profit,” the Ohio university said in a statement online. “This item is beyond poor taste and trivializes a loss of life that still hurts the Kent State community today.”

I understand the thinking behind this shazaam and after knowing the history behind Kent State I would still buy this sweatshirt. Not to be rebellious but simply because I like it. Urban is a very “free” brand. I believe their clothes are quality and if I get a hole in a shirt I’m not going to freak out because when you wear the brand, it’s okay to get dirty and full of holes then wash it and wear it again. Even though Urban doesn’t focus on the hippie/boho look as much as Free People & Anthropology does you still get a small feeling of that. The shirt was selling online for $129 in the vintage collection.

The company said on Twitter today that there was no blood on the shirt, and the stains and holes were a result of discoloration and “natural wear and fray.”

Dracula-Untold-2

I have been in love with the face of Luke Evans since Clash of the Titans and every movie he has played in after that. For the most part is a good actor but when you can become that part and take that character to anew heights, you become a great actor.  He is just gorgeous when he is authoritative!! Moving on. . .. . . . I have seen the 1992 Dracula and Gary Oldman played that part, very debonair. So I’m excited to see what Evans can do, if he is going to become the character, if not, I might lose the love for his face. But we shall see October 10th, I think. Haha

Dia De Los Muertos

50-best-halloween-makeup-ideas--large-msg-138033392534 halloween halloween4

Day of the Dead  is a Mexican holiday observed throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico where the day is a bank holiday. The celebration takes place on October 31, November 1 and November 2, in connection with the triduum of All Hallows Eve, Hallowmas, and All Souls’ Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.

Inspiration for my halloween costume. I enjoy halloween, personally, for the festivities. It’s exciting to be something else and be surrounded by people who also just wants to enjoy the party. I believe this year I chose this particular theme because I lost both my grandmothers within months of each other and lately I’ve just been finding myself reminiscing. Now, I’m not gonna go make an alter and praise them, but more remember their spirit and how they affected my life.

P.S. Don’t forget to watch Sons of Anarchy tonight!

Blackened Days

I WOKE UP in a rush mood( throw something on and go).  So today I wore a similar outfit and I wanted to share the black. haha (corny). Everything in this look is so simple, black biker boots, oversized sweater; they’re all staple items that we have in our closets. To me, what makes the outfit stand out is the layers ( depending on the temp, I would throw an oversized cardigan over top) and the statement necklace.

Enjoy the second day of the week.

*remember, each day is a another day to start over. You have 24 hours to make something of yourself do something to write about. Beyoncé made an album+videos in a matter of months while touring without anyone knowing. THINK LIKE BEYONCÉ!
