I’ve been a major fan of Lil Kim since she came out with her first single No Time. I know her music is super sexually explicit but she has always been one of my favorite female MC’s. So imagine how excited I was when she entered during the Bad Boy reunion during BET Awards 2015!
I was too HYPE!!! She absolutely slayed that performance! When she came in through the trap door in the floor of the stage in her signature squat and hopped up and said “Wanna rumble with the Bee huh” I felt chills go through me! She was dressed in all black like the omen just as the lyric to the song said! With Honey blonde hair that slayed!!!
I went back down memory lane with all of the Bad Boy Alum 112, Faith Evans, Mase, The Lox, and you know Diddy himself! It took me back to my high school days (ugh that tells my age) lol!
did you guys watch the BET Awards 2015? What was your favorite performance?
The theme for 2015 Met Gala
China: Through the Looking Glass
As I browsed through the many photos of those who were in attendance that are floating around the fashion WebSphere I was in awe of the beautiful gowns and then there were the WTF moments! I understand Fashion is self expression and art so I do appreciate the more creative looks!
Let’s have a look!
Lady Anna in Chanel
(not my cup of tea but its artful)
I’m so feeling the blue and white on Alicia Keys
Ann Hathaway is giving me Little Gold Riding hood lol
Mr. & Mrs Clooney
Common is looking very Dapper I must say
Kim is showing off her ASSets in her all white gown Kanye on the other hand…
D Wade … That’s All
Can we stop to talk about Katy Perry’s ensemble. Love Love Love it the graffiti dress then to accessorize it with a spray pain hand bag was Genius and her hair honey #Slayed
Chrissy and John keeping it simple
Cassie is gorg and I love the dress Diddy looks nice and classic
I love me some Elizabeth Banks she was looking like divine spring time in her blue cut out dress
I kinda expected more from Mrs. Union but the dress is nice
I love the details of Zendaya’s dress and how she coordinated her head piece
Why am I not impressed… It just looks like a cute little strapless maxi dress with flowers I’m sorry Taraji
Why do I want to give Vera an iron or steamer so get the wrinkles out? (I digress)
Ivanka curves upon curves Yesss!!!
The Beyhive have been raving about the Carters I just feel like the nakedness is over done
(my two cents don’t sting me bees)
JLo in crimson red I love the color
Miguel rocking red and black
Solange dress is a piece of art all on its own
Kerry Washington’s pink and green is very A.K.A.
Lisa Bonet dress is giving me little house on the prairie but Lenny on the other hand looks amazing in his navy!
And then there was RiRi looking like the Sun! Although the color is bright I like it!
It’s the most elegant I have seen her in a while!

As you guys already know I am a Youtube JUNKIE! So when it comes to my at home workout routine you already know I have a workout playlist filled with my favorite fitness gurus on the YT! There is one chanel in particular that I absolutely love and that is Super Hero Fitness TV with Keaira LaShae.
Keaira LaShaes workouts are Everything! She mixes dances like twerking and exercises like lunges so wonderfully you can’t hardly tell that you are really putting in some serious work. Keaira’s videos range from a one mile walk which is low impact to more intense exercises like a dance squat work out that will have your legs burning! She also has tips for healthy eatting and weightloss.
I’m always satisfied when I tune into her chanel. I try to do two of her videos a day to at least get in a good 40 minutes of exercise in.
Do you have a youtube fitness guru you enjoy working out with?
I’ve been needing to change up my hair do for some time now. I usually love to slay a wig with a bang that hangs over my eye on one side (my signature look lol)
but with the spring time here and the weather getting warmer I figured it was time for something new!
I haven’t worn box braids in over 7 years because I hate the length of time it takes me to do them but now that I have them in those seven hours and the soreness in my fingers is well worth it! I love being able to just get up and maybe do a top knot and go if I want to. When I work out I don’t have to worry about sweating out my hair either! #Winning!!!
Here lately I have been obsessing over makeup vanities! I’m constantly watching makeup collection and storage videos on Youtube and pinning pictures of vanities on Pinterest waiting on the day I get the chance to get a vanity myself! I currently have my makeup on my dresser, in makeup cases, and in one of those plastic 3 drawer bins on wheels. I know right so lame!
I have a dream of a white parsons desk with clear acrylic makeup drawers and holders with pretty girly trinkets all over
something like these I found on Pinterest
I have my sight set on this parsons desk from walmart for $53.53
I know everyone goes to Ikea for things like this but I like to keep it frugal where I can!
Now what is a vanity without a beautiful mirror here are a few of may Pinterest faves
It’s all about the glam when it comes to the mirror!
Now last but not least is the seat I will be in for hours playing in my makeup! Now the seat has to be fitting for a QUEEN darling!
I can see it now! My hubby would have to pull me away from my space because I wont leave willingly lol! Add a small chandelier for some extra sparkle and some pretty framed quotes and I will be set!
What are some of your vanity dreams?

Remember that beautiful Milani lipstick I posted last week?
Or so I thought…
I love Milani’s packaging. The gold just screams “places me on your vanity so I can make it pretty!” and for just under $7 the price is perfect.
When I swatched this lipstick on my arm I was excited about the pay off
oh but when I put it on my lips….
I just was not impressed!
I’m sooo sadddd
With a name like Matte Glam I was expecting a little bit more. I know I’m a chocolate girl but the color just did not pop on my skin tone. Maybe it will look amazing on someone with a lighter skin tone. I’m not giving up hope on Milani’s products at all but this one I’m going to have to pass!
