The Real(ness)

5342909_orig

So as I am sitting, anxiously, trying to finish my 600 word essay ( I know- not that difficult). I began to side track, answering text messages, checking Instagram. . . when I’m scrolling through my group message (with my 3 besties-yes I still use that word) and I see something about Chris Brown + The Real. Now I love The Real and think it’s a good show, despite it’s sometimes bland moments. And I support Chris Brown as an artist, he is very talented. So, I go to Google !! (don’t we all) and I see multiple post about this and decided to read them all. Hello, Procrastinator! Tamar, Adrienne, and Mai had a lot of words to say about Chris Brown and Kaurreche’s relationship. The topic that they were on, Chris’ relationship fit the details. Playing DEVILS ADVOCATE: With that being said I don’t believe it was respectful for them to do that. They are celebrities and celebrities will always get bashed but if KeKe Palmer had a “Gold Diggers” segment on her show and mentioned Vince and Tamars relationship she would throw a lot of shade because she would be offended. Eventhough Tamar would try to shrug it off in her Nice/Nasty way, she would be offended. Saying that, I understand where Chris Brown is coming from and he felt the need to say something back. The way he said it was just a disrespectful as what they said but that is his opinion, his instagram, his career. One thing that I have learned is that publicity is good, good or bad and honestly The Real is a good show but is it really getting as high ratings as expected? Prob not!! So to bash Chris Brown gives them that, it goes with their show and for Chris Brown to lash out about it shows how “bad of a person” he is. So either way The Real wins. On the topic overall, I don’t think Brown is bad for Kaurreche, he has his moments and he did leave her once for Rihanna but I believe overall they are good for each other. He seems happy with her and she seems happy with him, no extraness included. “What would Beyonce do?” No comment!!

Peace, LOVE, and Chicken Grease

Make sure nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what’s good for each other and for everyone else

College or Experience??

fashion cap

Being in the fashion industry has its ups and downs (if you can’t handles The Devil Wears Prada, you shouldn’t be in it) Everyday something similar happens, it’s not a fluke and it doesn’t at all slow down. Just as models are in competition of one another, it’s just the same behind the scenes. Women and men are always scratching at the tippy top of the pyramid and when you get there you have to kick everyone else down to stay. It seems surreal but this is experience that I am typing. So about getting to the top. . . . .now a days some people believe that experience trumps text book knowledge. I see how that is relevant, when you are working you want someone who knows what they are doing, who understands it because they’ve done it. But I do believe text book knowledge is just as important. You need those discussions in class, the wisdom that teachers can you, and text book knowledge. It’s an opinion and people will disagree. But my generation is spending so much money on college and working minimum wage jobs because they have no experience. They spend all their time focusing on getting out of college early and forgetting that you now need more than a degree. I recently did an interview and the interviewer told me she has been at the same job for the past three years and she left school because it was too expensive and she was content with where she was. Thats fine and dandy too but understand where you want to go, if you don’t know you will waste your time in this industry. Some people will say you need schooling others will say intern more and you will get entangled doing so much and years will have gone by before you realize you haven’t benefitted at all. In my opinion, go to school and work within your industry or at least intern, having prior experience on your resumé to go along with your degree is a must now.

6′ platforms

Walking,  thinking aimlessly
I look up to see you
Standing, talking. . . .  I remembered your smile
As someone else gets my attention
I grab yours
A moment of sight
I reminisced about it all.
Your eyes told it to me a million times over
I gave my attention elsewhere
. . . . . Before we went past a moment

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

OOTD

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!
