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

Dia De Los Muertos

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!

Good (almost) Afternoon to all. As I was scrolling through Instagram like it’s the daily newspaper, I came across this handsome fella and though I should share him with the world.

THOUGHTS: Would you date a guy who doesn’t have style? Meaning he doesn’t take attention to his looks. To me that is a relationship breaker, in a sense. When I look good I feel good and I’m not going anywhere with someone who doesn’t equal my appearance. Don’t get me wrong, I have my sweat pants, hair tied days but I still look good (ratchet voice) haha. I just appreciate a guy who has style, it’s basically the first thing I look at. Care to share your thoughts on Guys+Relationships+Style??

Moves of Deceit

I thought it was over

We danced night after night

and when it all stopped

I think my heart did too, I lost myself

I was swallowed in the abyss’ we overlooked

Floating in hot tears, the river soothed my soul,

temporarily

We danced because you needed me

but I didn’t need you

so I gave my all with no conditions

Your need for me became my need

Your heartbeat was my rhythm

I swayed effortlessly until my step was broke

You no longer needed me but I craved you

I was no longer safe
