I am obsessed with the chunky shoe fashion, I love solid platforms. Unfortunately, I can’t wear them since I stand all day for work. After about an hour my feet start to KILL and soon to follow in agony, are my legs and back.

3 reasons why I’m obsessed with Amanda

  • She’s a talented hair stylist at Butterfly Studio Salon
  • She understands me… If I give someone a side eye, she knows exactly how I feel. No explanation needed.
  • She’s in the top 5 Best Dressed, out of everyone I know. Hands Down.

 

 

thanksGIVING– passing down family recipe’s

First things first… this is not a food blog. I rarely cook, and for new and creative recipes, I’m probably the last person you should ask. But when my grandmother gave me her banana pudding recipe just in time for Thanksgiving, I had to share.

Now, this is REAL banana pudding…  I did not use JELL-O INSTANT PUDDING. The pudding used in this recipe, is made from scratch. Also, no CHESSMAN COOKIES were used either. Any cookie used for banana pudding other than a Nilla wafer is STUPID, and I want NO parts.

My grandmother is the sweetest person, but getting this recipe out of her “correctly” was hard. First, she gave me no exact measurements. Secondly, I know she left out her “Secret ingredient.” But either way… I was beyond happy with the end result. A few more times, and I will have Ira Mae’s Banana Pudding Recipe perfect!

i love you TINA TURNER.

Happy 75th Birthday to my IDOL, Tina Turner… the Queen of ROCK & SOUL! When I was 17 years old, I listened to Tina Turner’s debut album Private Dancer, and fell in love. Her strong voice with her Rock and Roll style surprised me. After reading her autobiography, and watching “What’s Love got to do with it” I became completely obsessed with her.

my FAVORITE TT quote, and my motto…

If you are unhappy with anything… whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

3 things that I LEARNED from TT:

Fringe is your BFF

Love ain’t got nothing to do with it

Women RULE the world

WANG.

Alexander Wang x H&M

Alexander Wang x H&M

So, I thought I would be a dedicated fashionista (Ugh, I hate that word) and wake up at 6am, be out of the house by 6:30, hop on the train and be outside of my favorite NYC H&M by 7. Just in time to get an “ok” spot on line, before doors open at 8am for the most anticipated Alexander Wang and H&M collaboration. But then, I thought about it, and got anxiety remembering the dreadful day Isabel Marant for H&M was released. So instead, I’ll just be dreaming about my coulda, shoulda, woulda’s.

 

But, I NEED this sweatshirt.

Honestly, I don’t normally get caught up in the mass production retailers collaborating with high end fashion designers, but the moment RIHANNA hit the streets in head to toe Alexander Wang x H&M, I wanted at least one piece from the collection.

RIHANNA.


I don’t have the motivation to stand on line for hours, just to walk out of H&M with a keychain from the collection. However I will be stalking the H&M website from work. Pray for my sanity, and my scuba top!

boardwalk empire season 5: women’s fashion

Mannnn, I’m sad this is the last season of Boardwalk Empire. Even with the deaths of some of my favorite characters, I still watch faithfully every Sunday night. It’s so draining to find great shows with great story lines these days, and I’m not ready to let Boardwalk Empire go.

But, one thing I am not sad about, is the amazing women’s fashion, and hair. From head to toe, every woman in season 5 was stunning. I mean, even Gillian Darmody who has been in jail for 6 years looked great.

Fashion in the 1930s for women was feminine, it was glamour and glitz. Shorter hair, in a bob style was a huge change from long locks.

These women did it right, and I am OBSESSED… BOB SEASON is here!

the 6 month waitlist.

Mansur GavrielIt’s finally HERE. The bucket bag of my dreams… the MANSUR GAVRIEL.

I still can’t believe there was a legit 6 month waiting list for this bag. The only way to get your hands on this bag was to know someone in a very high place (which i did not), be added to a wait list, or pre- order from a MG Stockist (which I did).

I have never pre- ordered anything other than an iPhone. So the thought of paying for something that I wouldn’t physically have for 6 months, almost gave me a heart attack. But, because my obsession’s take over my life, I did it.

Today, I have this amazing large black bucket with metallic gold lining, and to say I am obsessed, is an understatement. Not only are bucket bags my signature purse, but GOLD will forever be my first LOVE.
