It features over 150 sepia portraits, family photographs, and letters with the foreword composed by Oprah.

Hair Ware

Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. Either way no one can seem to tell the difference anyway.

My Myspace friend, KD sent this bulletin out:


Spring Looks

I found this electric behind the scenes video look of New York Fashion week at I am moving to NY this Summer and am just goo-goo gaga over all things NYC.
I will be posting my favorite springtime looks shortly.

Big Boi's "Royal Flush"

In other Big Boi news, The Star-Ledger reports that Daddy Fat Sacks is producing a ballet set to hip-hop entitled "Big" to be performed by the Atlanta Ballet.

N.E.R.D.'s 'Seeing Sounds'

The trio recently spoke with about their latest effort; "It's a big album of LSD, sonic drug," according to bandmate Chad Hugo.

As far as I'm concerned, no other group captures the 80's excess of sex, drugs & rock n' roll like N.E.R.D. It's gonna be a good summer!

Live & Learn


- Yogi Tea bag

So I JUST figured out how to link to another page or article! It is the one thing that has stumped me about blogging. Everywhere you see 'give credit', I have wanted to but simply did not know how. Cool.

DIY Smokey Eye

I have never really been into wearing make-up on a regular basis. Mascara and lip-gloss is my basic daytime look. As I have gotten older I have come to appreciate make-up as an accessory. When the naughtiness creeps in and you are feeling flirty and feminine, you NEED the smoky eye to let'em know!
In my efforts to create the ultimate smoky eye, I found this short video to get me started.
Being a girl is fun, enjoy it;-)

How To Create A Smoky Eye Effect

First Day of Spring Wear

A favorite blog of mine, The Frugal-Fashionista, has featured actress Joy Bryant in a cool and easy going look (she IS a Libra after all) fit for a gorgeous spring day or night!

Angela Bassett Receive's Star on Walk of Fame

Whoo hoo, one of my favorites, Angela Bassett, has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Click the heading for more.

According to Wikipedia, in order for a person to get a star on the Walk of Fame, he or she must agree to attend a presentation ceremony within five years of selection, and a $25,000 fee must be paid to the Trust for costs such as security at the star ceremony; a 2003 FOX News story noted that the fee is typically paid by sponsors such as film studios and record companies, as part of the publicity for a release with which the honoree is involved. On other occasions, the fee is paid by a fan club or the nominating person or organization.

Take 5-->> Quotables

Today I am open to greater and deeper relationships. I am a magnet for the good of God.

I am and I receive this.

Recently I became acquainted with several dope ass females by way of dinner in Brooklyn set up and brought together by two chicks in Amsterdam. (Blank stare)

Who are these dope ass females and how did they come to be; I want to know. I want to get more of that in me. In the past two days I have taken time to reach out and ask real questions in an effort to create a deeper connection.

My illegal Cable is Off ((sigh))

Oh man! Did YOUR illegal cable get cut off too? I swear I watch tha same thing over and over but it's like the T.V. is my friend. (I live alone you see)((As if that's gonna take the creepiness out of it)) I am so missing my three time-a-day Seinfeld fix cause that shit comes on like three times-a-day!
So if you too are like me and missing your cable here is a shit-load of eps. Enjoy mofo's;-)

New Gnarls Barkley Vid.

So it is for their song Run, and it features super-cute Justin Timberlake but it could cause seizures so careful!

Will.I.Am's B.Rocka Campaign Vids.

So over the summer I went to my first presidential rally. I met up with a group of friends in dwntwn Oakland to hear Senator Barack Obama speak. He was a black man trying to run for President of the United States. I'm so not political. I can seem to only focus on pop-culture topics but I realize this needs to change and have taken steps to remedy this and he's black so I gotta go see bout him.
All of Oakland came out. It was a gorgeous day and I was proud. Of course we had many jokes regarding what his campaign song should be and I gave him the tag of B.Rocka. And I swear that he didn't come out till 4:20 but that could be my warped mind;-)
Anyway he spoke and what I got from it was that he was a normal man with a vision for our future and with the help of the American public, he could move us in a new, much needed direction. He is an eloquent speaker, social with a sense of humor and a black wife with two gorgeous black girls.
Yes he can...with our help.
I love Will.I.Am, I believe that I have blogged about him before, but I love his enthusiasm and passion and input. These video's are gorgeous.

Rowlands Holding

Ah have been circulating round the net showcasing Kelly Rowland, of Destiny's Child, new assets. Well she has now confirmed that she indeed got her boobs done!
I love that she spoke on it. Not only was it obvious but she did it for herself and their is no shame in that!
I'm waiting till after pregnancy to see what my girls do, plus, if my girls were bigger I'd be a total man-eater;-)

Back To Life

I took a week off but now I'm back. I woke up to the news that the lead role has been casted in the biopic pic on Biggie Smalls life. According to , Jamal Woodlard, the actor/rapper from Brooklyn already has the blessings of Voletta Wallace, Biggies mom.
