Five And Below

I went to Five & Below a few days ago because I heard they have cheap make up products. Five & Below is a huge store that sells make up products, accessories, sports equipment, and electronic accessories for all under $5. How awesome is that? I found this nice Profusion Illumin Eye 24 shadow palette that is really nice and compact. If you know me well, you know I usually do not stray away from M.A.C. eyeshadow, but I couldn't resist these colors. And I heard Profusion is a really nice brand of shadow. I'll keep you updated on how I like the shadow, but I played around with them today and I love the pigments. So anyway if you are looking for nice cheap eyeshadow or nail polish or even perfume...yes perfume... check out Five and Below. I was really surprised with what I found.

Russian Vogue June 2010

It seems that a little more "racy" was added in Russian Vogue's June 2010 issue. Holland model Marloes Horst does a less than modest spread in the issue styled by Miles Aldridge. Horst has been modeling since 2007 and was originally signed to IMG, who she recently left and is signed with Next. She has appeared in the 2008 spring Prada show in Milan, appeared in editorials in magazines such as Marie Clair and V, walked in the 2009 spring Topshow in London, and done countless other jobs. The shoot contains a lot of sex and a lot of nudity.

OPI Shrek Forever Collection

OPI Lacquer nail colors has partnered with Dreamworks Animation to present 6 new nail shades in compliment with the new Shrek Forever Movie in theaters now.The line became available on May27th.  Although I like the Shrek films, I think this pairing was a very odd choice. The colors are pretty and interesting, but why now pair with Sex in the City. Those would have been a nice collection of colors. They could have done a different color of each of the main characters and one for the two primary destinations in the movie. All the same, the new Shrek Forever Collection includes pretty shades like "What's with all the Cattitude?" and "Who the Shrek are You?" I am sure it will please Shrek fans.... Wait Shrek has fans??

Skimpy Skimpy Skimpy

Over the decades women went from being more modest to a sexier, skimpier look. This video shows a little bit about the history of women's fashion and how we got to a point in society where it is okay to show other parts of our bodies. Enjoy =)

Sex and the City Opening Night

Before: I am so excited. Me and my mom are going to see Sex in the City tonight at midnight. I loved the first one and the second one better be worth all 2 and a half hours of the movie. I've been watching the trailer all day.

After: Sex and the City was good. But somehow I am mildly disappointed. I mean I enjoyed it. I love seeing the four friends together and their quirky lives. But somehow I think the film lacked a little substance. But the fashion in the film was remarkable. I am definitely going to incorporate some things I saw in my summer wardrobe.

Stop and Listen

So many of us pray to God and ask for guidance or strength or a miracle or just an answer to a prayer. We talk and talk and ask and ask. And it's good for us all to spend our individual time with him talking to him. But so many of us ask questions or for guidance, yet don't listen and wait for the answer. Life is not just about prayer. It is also about meditation. Sometimes I think it boils down to us all just,


So many of us like to talk, myself included. That we stop listening. We don't hear anyone else other than ourselves. We go on and on and complain. We seek help, but we don't wait to receive it. The only way to receive is to listen. We must take the time out to reflect, to listen, to hear. That's the only way to receive true guidance.


Alexandra Burke- All Night Long

Skarr Akbar- Scholarship Chick

So I heard this song "Scholarship Chick" by a local Baltimore artist named Skarr Akbar a while ago, but I did not know he was from Baltimore, and I definately didn't know his name. But if this isn't a positive song I don't know what is. This song is off his old mixtape, "The Mind of a Maniac". Skarr Akbar is releasing his new mixtape "The Pursuit of Happyness". You can download both of these mixtapes at All Bmore Hip Hop: Skarr Akbar. I am definately a new fan of this artist. Please check him out.

Tyra who recently resigned to IMG looks really good. Here are a few of the pics. Enjoy.

Riding in Style with Gucci

This Gucci Cruiser Bike retails at about $6365, kind of ridiculous for a bike, but I'm sure it'll be a smooth ride.

Beyonce- "Why Don't You Love Me"

So I grabbed this video from a friend of mine's blog Ciera Nicole... Check her out here BE BOLD or follow her on twitter @IamCieraNicole

But this is a new video by Beyonce called "Why Don't You Love Me". It is definately different than your typical Beyonce. I have mixed feelings about the video. Although I like it, I really wouldn't expect this kind of video from Beyonce. But recently with her "Sasha Fierce" alter ego and pairings with Lady Gaga it is not unexpected.

Anyways enjoy and let me know what you think.

"Procrastination is opportunity's assassin". ~Victor Kiam

This is the story of my life right now. I have been putting off this project all week and now it is due tomorrow smh.

Summer Time

So this is finals week... I haven't started studying at all yet. I know I am a bad person lol. But I think it is because I am really excited about my summer plans. I have decided to do a summer (almost) daily diary of my summer movements, no matter how boring.

So this summer I am participating in a program called the Institute on Political Journalism in D.C. I will be taking classes at Georgetown University and working at the Afro Paper in D.C. At first I was a little bit upset that I will not be interning at a more up and coming paper, but then I stopped and reflected on all the good things and great opportunities the Afro-American Newspaper has given up and coming African Americans. I am really excited to be in D.C., which is one of my favorites cities aside from NYC.

I love D.C. city life. It is a very happening city and has tons to offer an up and coming journalist. I hope to do some really good networking this summer and really push my career forward. I think this summer will probably be one of the best summers that I have had thus far.

I am going to have four roommates this summer and I've already been in contact with them, they seem so nice and I am really ready to just jump start my life as a journalist.
