Look At Him Now

Chris Brown and his new "jet fighter" Lamborghini Gallardo

Chris Brown, Chris Brown, Chris Brown.... that's all you hear about in the media these days! Breezy is straight winning right now! I don't even want to bring up the Breezy/Rhi Rhi situation, but we all know he caught years worth of flack behind that incident which took place on MY birthday two years ago (go figure lol). Since his split with Rihanna, Breezy has been dealing with some severe scrutiny not just from the media but the whole world. He's been receiving so much negativity about his anger issues, especially after allegedly breaking a window last week after being asked about Rihanna in his Good Morning America interview. I can't imagine what it would feel like having your talent overlooked but constantly being reminded of your past mistakes.

Now in no way am I saying what he did was right, but who are we to judge? Every single "normal" person has had some sort of issue that I'm sure we would not be proud of if we happened to be famous. That man has talent which speaks for itself, and to prove it what does he do?? Comes back and sells over 270K albums in the first week... #diditonem!! So in honor of one of the finest men in the industry *sigh* #throwbackthursdays is just for him. I am a big Rihanna fan, but I love me some CB too... Much love to him and big ups to him for letting his talent speak for itself and proving the world wrong.

SN: Go get his album... it's FIREEE! #thatisall

The Right To Choose

Did the most take place in the season finale of The Game or did THE MOST take place?? I don't think I'm alone when I say I was disappointed in the way the season ended. I feel like the finale left us all hanging without a clue of where any of the characters stand. For instance, Jenay never even came back in any episodes after confronting Derwin about leading her on. Kelly never came back from her vacation she took, so where does that leave her and Jason?? And when the show ended, the Sabers had taken in a new quarterback so where will Malik fit into the show? So many questions and so little answers!

At the beginning of the episode, Melanie was standing in the bathroom looking in the mirror when she was joined by Derwin. She obviously had something on her mind, but when Derwin asked what was wrong she said nothing. After much pressure, she revealed to him that she was still obsessing over the fact that she wasn't pregnant yet. Derwin told her that she didn't have a reason to worry, but agreed to go see a fertility specialist to make her feel better. Meanwhile the two love birds had a business meeting with Derwin's manager Tasha, who revealed that she would be managing Malik's career again. Once Tasha left, Derwin expressed to Melanie that he didn't want Tasha representing Malik because she would always put Malik's career before his own. Melanie reminded Derwin that Tasha was part of the reason his career advanced so much, but after being persuaded she agreed to talk to Tasha about managing Malik.

Positive Mondays!

Welp i didn't have anyone send me any pics for #positivemondays, so I posted my own! Lol! Another Monday has dawned upon us and I must say I am extremely tired today. Mind you it's snowing in my city (at the end of March O_o) so needless to say I woke up with the Monday blues. However, since today is Positive Monday, I won't let these minor details rain on my parade.

Positive Mondays is all about seeing the good in the bad and making the best out of every situation. Because it was snowing this morning, my grandma offered to keep my son today so I wouldn't have to drive across town to his school. So not only did I save gas, but I also got to sleep an extra 30 minutes. To top it all off, she even had breakfast waiting for me this morning. Now tell me that wasn't a blessing!

Remember to always see your glass as half full rather than half empty. The way you perceive your life can determine if your days will be good or bad. The type of day you have depends on how you handle situations. Create a good day rather than allow outside sources to prevent you from having one.

Sometimes None Is Better Than Some

How mad does it make you when people offer up "advice" to you without you asking for any help?? And how often do you find that people's so called "advice" turns out being criticism? Better yet, they start giving you advice but don't really know the details of your situation so everything they're saying is irrelevant. To me the worst thing is when people say they're only trying to help, but while they're "helping" they're actually telling you what THEY would do. (Makes me wanna say well you AINT me lol).

Death Becomes Her

First of all let me apologize for not doing a review last week, but I feel like I need to either write down what happened or watch the show twice before I do my blog. Well I didn't really have time to do either last week and I didn't want to miss any details! Anywho in the next to last episode of The Game, Melanie seems to be trying to get pregnant. Melanie went with Tasha to the bar to help her cope with Dante' breaking up with her. When Melanie was texting Derwin the whole night, Tasha told her to go home and be with her man. Mel happily left so she could go home and hopefully work on making a baby.

Alone at the bar, Tasha was approached by a man she had never met before. Shortly after, they were running down the street in their underwear and jumping into his convertible LLS! At first I was confused, but then he revealed to Tasha that he had a terminal case of cancer. He told her that before he got sick, he was angry with the world. He felt that him having cancer was a blessing because it opened his eyes up to the world. He told Tasha that he wanted to spend his last moments in life with her SN: Tasha and her cigars #icant lol

Spring Trend: Oxfords

It is no secret that I LOVE Rihanna's style game, nor is it a secret that I'm a huge lover of oxfords! I currently have two pair and I'm already looking for more colors to invest in lol. Not everyone will wear this trend, but it is definitely one of my favorites. Oxfords can really be worn throughout all seasons, but I prefer to wear them during the spring and summer months so they can be paired with bright colors, skirts, etc. If you decide to try these out, I would go with light colors like neutrals or grays or even go bold with a bright pair to match the Spring vibe.

Check below for some of the different types of oxfords that I found online and thought were cute! And remember to always set your own style; the way you dress says a lot about your character! #BossinIsAHobby

Positive Mondays

Here is another chance to inspire or be inspired!! Positive Mondays is about empowering and uplifting each other on what can be the most frustrating, hectic day of the week! One positive thing that has happened to me recently is selling my car. Not only did I sell my 1991 Honda Accord, but I received a blessing from my grandma who sold me her 2002 Honda Accord for way less than it was worth! So not only did I receive a new car, but one without payments as well. :)
Please feel free to share experiences on how you encountered a positive experience today. It could be something you did or said to someone or vice versa; a quote, song, or thought that incorporates positivity! And remember to put on your shades to block out all negativity today! #positivemondays

QOTD: "The difference between can and cannot is only three letters. Will you allow three letters to control your life?"- Unknown

SN: Next week I'm giving my readers a chance to send me a pic of yourselves with your shades on, blocking out all the negativity that comes with the world. BUT you have to send a positive quote or a story about something good you've encountered in order for me to post the pic. Depending on how many pics are sent, this may be a weekly thing! Send them to and have fun with it!

Throwback Thursday: Missy Elliott

Last week I seemed to have forgotten all about Throwback Thursdays, but this week I'm making up for it with a banger... Missy Elliott has always been one of my favorite artists ever since she came out with Timbaland and Magoo back in the 90's. Missy and her crew including the likes of Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Nicole Wray, etc used to lay down the hottest songs ever! I can't think of any songs that she's touched that I haven't liked. She's worked with Faith Evans, Tweet, Keyshia Cole, Lil Kim, Ciara, Trina, Ludacris and plenty more and basically every song has been a hit.

Not only is her music hot, but it's always so ahead of the game. If you go back and listen to her old songs, it's pretty much timeless music. You could still listen to it now like it's brand new, and if no one knew the song they wouldn't know any better. I also love how Missy was never afraid to be herself. When she first started in the game, she came out wearing crazy clothes and her videos were always off the wall. I respected her for doing something different, rather than the usual overtly sexual things other female mc's were doing. Now of course I can't list all her songs and videos but I did list some of my favorites. Check them out below and feel free to leave any comments if these songs take you back to certain memories you'd like to share!

SN: Missy is the only female rapper to ever have six certified platinum albums including her double platinum album Under Construction in 2002... Now that's #bawse

R.I.P. Nate Dogg

I'm sure you all have heard that Nate Dogg (Nathaniel Hale) passed away yesterday at the mere age of 41 SN: Long lives are becoming more and more less common #sadbuttrue... Anyway, Nate Dogg is best known as being a West Coast legend, with a low bass filled voice that's easily recognizable. He has layed hooks to tracks for the likes of 50 Cent, Eminem, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, Fabolous and more. Nate Dogg had previously suffered a stroke back in 2007 and as well as in 2008, but the cause of his death is yet known.

I loved his voice and how smooth he was! He used to stay rocking his four piece suits and hats with his shades and a bandana on. He was definitely an OG and will be missed in the music industry! If you had Nate on your track, it was guaranteed to be certified G music. Check below for some of the songs he was featured in from the past, my favorites being "Regulators" with Warren G and "21 Questions" with 50. #RIPNateDogg

What Is The World Coming To?

Good morning bosses && boss chics! It's been a week since I've blogged for you guys; last week was my spring break from school and I must say I took advantage by not doing ANY work lol #dontjudgeme. However I'm back on the grind now, and I apologize for the lack of posts for the past week!

Now I'm sure my local hometown readers already know this, but for those of you who visit this blog from different areas let me fill you in. Here's a run down of where I'm from. I grew up and live in Martinsville Va, an extremely small city with not much to offer. It used to be well known for its manufactoring companies, but since majority of those have shut down it's so difficult to find a job here now. In a nut shell, it's no telling what might go down here these days because there's no work which is causing an increase in the crime rate.

With that being said, it was recently reported on our local news station that the KKK would be hosting a rally in one of the area's parks on April 2nd. Supposedly they are going to be lighting a cross as well. First of all I swear I didn't know the KKK even still really existed or did these types of "marches". Just a few days ago, I saw on Facebook where someone has started another rally that will be marching against the KKK. I'm sorry, but I know I can't be the only one blown by this O_O... Here it is 2011 and violence is still happening due to race and backgrounds?? When there is so much other bs going on around us like lack of healthcare, lack of employment, rise in gas prices, etc. #wheretheydothatat... Booth (one of the people I get to help me with the blog) aka @TWlTTERWHALE who is also from my hometown wrote a "Letter To Martinsville" that I thought was worthy of a post. This comes right on time with everything going on in this city. Check it out below!

SN: If this were YOUR city would you stand against the ignorance and march against the KKK?? Let us know!

Whip It, Whip It Good

(Katlynn Smith & Ericka Gluck)
I think it's safe for me to start this post with the girl we all went from loving to hating... Brit Brat. Ugh she just does the most, I can't deal with her! She makes me glad I had a son lol. But anyway, this episode started with Jason and Malik out at lunch. During their conversation, Malik asked Jason about Brit Brat and how she was doing. Jason told him that Brit Brat stayed out of school today because she had cramps. Well Malik then showed Jason to Brit Brat's table where she was eating with her friends in the exact same restaurant. When Jason confronted her, she told him that her friend suggested that they go get some soup so she would feel better. I'm thinking Jason let her get away with so much because he felt bad about the divorce, because he bought her excuse and went on her merry little way smh.

Wedge Sandals for Spring 2011


As you all know, I've been posting different trends that are gonna be hot for Spring 2011. One of my favorite things about the different seasons is seeing what the trend will be each year. Wedge sandals are hot year after year, the only thing that changes is the different styles. Below I've listed some of my favorite wedge sandals from a few of my favorite sites including Baker's, Aldo's, and GUESS. Personally, I prefer to spend a little more money on my shoes and find cheaper clothing pieces and accesories to go with them. Step your game up this year and show em how real boss chics do! "Take it to another level no passengers on your plan" lls!

Spring Trend Alert!!

Floral Print =)

Previously I did a post on animal print for Spring 2011, well another big trend for this season is floral prints. This is one of my absolute favorites because they're fun, flirty, and chic all in one. These can be paired with cute ballerina flats (check out Bey above) or with oxfords, wedges, or pumps.  Below I've listed some of my favorite floral print items that I found from my favorite sites including Forever21, TopShop, and ASOS. Hope you enjoy!

Throwback Thursday- Total

Omar Epps and his gorgeous wife Keisha Epps (formerly Keisha Spivey) were spotted at the Rolling Stone Awards Bash last weekend. Keisha was one-third of the trio that made up the 90's R&B group Total. Diddy has always had the hottest artists under his belt but he seems to let them go every time then you never hear from them again. I was a huge Total fan... even have their station on my Pandora! Wonder what happened to the other girls? Looks like Keisha is living good :)

Check out some of Total's hottest songs from the 90's below! Don't you miss this music?? *sigh*

A Very Special Episode

I don't even know how to start this without saying the MOST went on in this episode... and ya'll know I loved it! It started off with Malik on The Monique Show telling the public how he realized all of his past mistakes, stating he was ready to confront his issues. He told Monique he was looking to star in a movie revolving around his life, so things were really starting to look up for him. When asked about his love life, he brought out his beautiful new girlfriend Ms. Jenna Rice and told the world how good it felt for him to be in love. Aww I just love Malik all over again!

Between Lovers

(I had to do it with the pic LOL)
  You ever been in a relationship and had a problem with your significant other telling their friends what goes on between you two?? Yeah so have I, and I've been on the end where I'm the one telling my friends (I'm human lol). It's never really an intentional thing to spill the beans on your whole relationship, but sometimes things are too good to be true and you just gotta tell somebody! Or maybe you and your partner are going through it and you could use an ear to spill the beans and get advice on what your next move should be. Whatever the case may be, there are some things that are ok to share with your friends, but some things need to be left between you and your partner.
