Azealia Banks aka Hip Hop’s Bratty Little Sister has finally dropped her new single “Heavy Metal and Reflective.” Which means she could be one step closer to actually dropping her début album “Broke With Expensive Taste” which has continuously been put on the backburners since 2012.
Need I really say more? You probably do not know, but I have an affinity for shoes. As if the world my world will crumble around me if I don’t have more shoes in my closet than I can actually wear at any given moment. Remember when I said I donated a bunch of shoes? As a present to myself for donating shoes, I end up with 5 new pairs in my closet. Clearly, I have a problem.

I love shoes. This has been my summer through shoes.
I wonder how the Church of Beyonce is going to explain this to their Beyciples…..do I even want to know of the blasphemy that they’ll come up with? However, what we do know is that they are grown, they are human, they are prone to mistakes and who are we really to judge. Yeah, it’s fun to speculate but how many times do we want people really speculating and giving their little opinion in our affairs.
Solange from the beginning has always marched to a different drum and I like her for that. I appreciate her music, her style, her personality and a lot more. What I will say is that she kind of gets a bad rep. for falling into an “angry black woman” stereotype or the black sheep because she isn’t as successful as Beyonce.
Unfortunately, Solange wasn’t aware that there were probably cameras in the elevator or if she did realize she didn’t care. In which that case, I would automatically assume she was doing this for some publicity stunt. Although, I would hope she’d have more tact then involving her own sister in a stunt that could be kind of damaging for all parties involved. I think if the bodyguard hadn’t been there to help Jay-Z, Solange would have just made a complete fool of herself.
Whatever it is, I hope that they do get it squared away.
Life is life and the things that happen in life are just little obstacles that try to set us back. I’m learning that I can’t let those things define me because then what was the learning experience in that, right?
I was dreading turning 28 for a multitude of reasons. However, they really just ended up being excuses for not going out and celebrating another year in life. The older I get the less, I want to go out to an actual club(although I can still get down and dance) and I opt for a relaxing evening with friends. However, I was dying to wear one of the tops that I bought! Of course, I needed pants as well and I have to say I put together a super cute outfit. I’m still convinced that if I didn’t get my haircut, I would have looked rather “Basic” and that’s not cute.
Birthday dinner at Sonsie with Tyler and Racine. You always appreciate the time that you spend with people when you don’t see them everyday at work anymore. So that was a fun actual birthday night. Then Saturday night it was off to Oberon with Eve to see “The Donkey Show” which is an amazing version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Think Studio 54 meets William Shakespeare but completely interactive. I highly recommend if you haven’t been!
For as long as Jodie Foster has been an actress, she's always taken roles in which she is the character that you fall in love with. She's one of those rare child actors that successfully made the jump from child star to adult actress without pulling a Lindsay Lohan or Gary Coleman in between teenager and young adult. It kind of makes me sick this Jodie Foster effect in which she really hasn't taken a role in which she's playing something out of the ordinary.....well maybe in Anna and The King.
So remember that movie, Elysium, starring Matt Damon as well? The premise of the film is a postapocalyptic Earth in which in the planet is a dismal place filled with minions and Elysium is paradise in space with the privileged. Anyways, Foster plays the Secretary of Defense Delacourt who doesn't really play by the rules. The citizens of Earth want the same medical attention that Elysian's have but anytime there's an attempt, Delacourt sees that it is just that an attempt. As is the formula for all Dystopian films, there's a disaster that doesn't get solved to almost the end. I don't want to ruin the film just for the simple reason that she does such an impeccable job playing a MEGA-BITCH!
The opening is good. The middle is fluff. The ending is typical. However, Foster is great as always and that's why everyone loves her!
As I grow older and begin to actually care about the society that I live in, I take notice to the problems that we face. There are so many so it’s truly hard to start talking about just everything from politics, to civil liberties, healthcare, etc. There are a lot of problems in our society and not just here but all over the world.
However, since I don’t have a degree in any of those subjects, I won’t give my opinion. I’m sure that many people who say “Are you kidding me? ” “That’s not a problem!” “You’re a brat!” I’ll own up to the last one but this problem is one that plagues me quite often in life.
You’re getting dressed in an amazing outfit. It’s perfect from head to toe. Everything coordinates. It’s the right cut. It is your voice for the evening. Uh oh! “I CAN’T EVER WEAR THIS OUTFIT AGAIN”
A few years ago, when I was on a Ksubi denim kick, they had a Jeremy Scott limited edition pair which I snagged on eBay(great deal), I also have this amazing Alexander McQueen white tee-shirt, and a pretty rad Dolce & Gabanna blazer. Somehow or another the outfit works! It really does. One day I was looking through pictures and noticed I had it on in multiple pictures. EEK! How did that happen? Why didn’t anyone stop me?
Recently, I was in the mall and this store was closing down that place so they were having this amazing blowout sale! I purchased a yellow blazer white blue paisley and two interesting 80s style jackets. As I envisioned what else I would wear with these three very unique and bold pieces, I asked myself, how do I wear these pieces not just that first time but other ways so that I get the most out of my clothing.
Have you ever found yourself in this predicament? What would you do? How do you take your best pieces and make them key elements more than once?
If you haven’t heard the début single “2 On” by Tinashe, you are definitely missing out! The video is just as good definitely showcasing her style influences i.e. Beyonce and Janet Jackson. DJ Mustard produced featuring Schoolboy Q, Tinashe’s début single is definitely bringing strong West Coast sound. Turn Up!
Torn. Awful. Unloved. Forgotten. Are words that I would use to describe how my birthday makes me feel. I could go down the list on why each birthday sucked but I’m not.
25 started with “Wear Your Jeans To Work Day” and that should have been a warning sign. Of course, I got color on my favorite True Religion jeans. It gets better! When I got home from work, my friends went to a psychic reading and dinner after. WITHOUT ME. They know I don’t drive. So what did I do? I cried like a baby all night long.
27. Oh 27. Shall we go there? This has all signs pointed at “Worst Effin Birthday” from jump when my friend had mentioned I could stay with her but then flipped her shit and went completely crazed on me. I wasn’t able to change the ticket from Boston to Miami without paying an arm and a leg(Oh BTW thanks Delta for turning my $300 credit into $39) so I was going to take the train from Tampa to Miami. That didn’t happen. What happened?
I cancelled that vacation. Worked half the week. My coworker had taken me out for birthday drinks after work which was the nice thing that happened. I met with another friend who invited me out for her friend’s birthday. So I was dressed right but Boston has these stupid moronic club outfit guidelines. What happened? The bouncer said “Hey bro, I can’t let you in, you don’t have a collared shirt on!” and I said “Where do you expect me to get one this late?” and he shrugged. Dramatic exit into a random minivan cab with a stop at McDonald’s eating while crying to Anita Baker.
The person I was seeing at the time, dropped my steak when he had cooked me dinner. So what did I eat? What did I eat? Sweet potato fries and ice cream from J.P. Licks.
All I really want to do for my birthday is hear some good music. Good dancing. Good people. If these past birthdays are any indication in the Farmer’s Alamanac of what is to come, I’m screwed at 30!
