I spent a few days in philly this past weekend… my home, my heart! As you may have guessed, everything was AMAZING! saturday I spent the entire day at the roots picnic. sunday, I explored the city… brunch and spruce street harbor park. Check out my favorite moments from the weekend…
summer is upon us, and all I can think about is the sound of great music blasting from car stereos, portable speakers at the park, pool, or beach, and MUSIC FESTIVALS. check out a few throwback songs i LOVE, that also remind me of summer…
ice cube: it was a good day
juvenile: back dat ass up
50 cent: in da club
back story about this song: the NBA All Star game was hosted in Atlanta, my freshmen year of college. just to let you know, that weekend, was one of the BEST weekends of my life. Around that time 50 cent was “the next big thing.” his hit song in da club could be heard anywhere there was a speaker, or stereo.
a bunch of my college friends (shout out to Pfeiffer Hall, second floor, east wing) headed to Lenox Mall to join in on the “ratchetness.” we arrived at Lenox, and maybe 45 minutes later, the mall was shut down. as we were leaving, we heard in da club blasting from a truck. about 10 of us started dancing, and rapping along, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET, IN BUMPER TO BUMPER TRAFFIC. shortly after a guy gets out of the truck, and signals for one of us to come to him. guess who it was? 50 cent. he invited all of us to the club with him that night. so we ran back to the dorm, and started getting ready. he called later to check in, and confirm we were coming. he then asked if we had cars. wanda’s response, “Hell naw we ain’t got no vehicles.” and that was the the end. NO transportation, NO party.
every time I think of that story, I smile from ear to ear. epic.
happy saturday everyone, enjoy this amazing weather, and amazing music!
every summer I find something to fall in love with. in 2014, it was mara hoffman swimsuits, 2013 it was wedge sneakers, 2012 henna, and 2011 fringe, leopard print, and bucket bags… pysch, that last part, I’ve been in love with those things since 1984.
but… 2015 it’s all about the ESPADRILLE!
an espadrille works as a comfy summer shoe, for walking these NYC streets, and rippin’ n runnin’ through summer festivals all the while giving you fashionable footwear.
here are my favorite picks for summer espadrilles:
Planning on killing the summer with all of these white numbers. 2 of 3 are already in the mail, and heading my way. You know I love white nail polish, so the thought of that white on white action makes me do a little dance in my head. I’m so excited.
Honestly, I’ll probably only wear the heels a few times, because the A train and 4″ heels ain’t hardly cute. But, I just have to have them.
birthday’s have always been special to me. I remember growing up, and having parties. the entire family would come to my house, everyone would sing the “happy birthday” song and I would make a wish and blow out the candles. my parents would give me great gifts, and my siblings and cousins would hug me all day. It was always a great time. I’ve always looked forward to april 3rd, and 31 years later… ain’t shit changed!!
i seriously have the greatest friends… they came from all over the country to celebrate with me. One even surprised me!
If I was stranded on an island, and only had one beauty product, I pray it would be white nail polish, preferably OPI alpine snow, but I won’t be picky. After finding porn a thon by smith & cult, I may push the white nail polish aside for awhile. I only need two reasons to love a specific nail polish… one, it must be long lasting, and two, it has to have a cool name. CHECK & CHECK!

I think I’ve worn my hair in the same style for over 9 years. Yeah, that’s pretty accurate. Every once in awhile I’ll add extensions, or highlights, or a ponytail, but the bang and short bob is my signature. SO, this summer I vow to change it up. Although I am a gaudy, bigger is better, hot mess… I’ll start with something simple. Adding a little texture will work. Currently obsessed with a 70’s inspired shag, and channeling Stevie Nicks.

• RIHANNA #BBHMM •
yes. yess. YASSSSSSSSSS RIHANNA. I’m obsessed with rihanna’s new sound and song. Listen to her new single, bitch better have my money. enjoy.
Before releasing the the full #BBHMM track, rihanna offered fans snippets on dubsmash… It’s kind of stupid, but held my attention for a few minutes.
Next week I’ll be sharing hair products I’m obsessed with…
An entire week later, and I still can’t believe my friend is a WIFE. Clearly it was in the cards for her, as her nickname amongst friends is “Martha Stewart.” But, the thought of knowing it’s finally real, is CRAZZZZZY. I am so excited, and overjoyed for the MOORE’s, and wishing them a lifetime of happiness!
In the name of love and my obsession with selfies… please enjoy “selfies” of my favorite couples who attended the MOORE wedding!
nikole & tony- 16 years of LOVE
steve & tukia- 6 years of HONOR

I love so many different types of fashion. The Victorian era, Elvira, 80’s hair metal, middle eastern ceremonies, Elvis Presley, cowboys, and Native American Indians- it sounds insane but these are all things I think of when putting outfits together. My entire wardrobe all laid out probably wouldn’t look like it all belonged to one person. I have very random taste.
