Report Signature Women's Fitzgerald Boot is a Yes!


I was browsing the DSW website, minding my own business, when I came across these awesome fucking over-the-knee leather boots by Report. They were a chocolate brown color, and I fell in love instantly. I had been looking for a pair of brown dressy boots for the fall and winter season, and these had me just a bit mesmerized. Love at first sight. I told myself that if I woke up the next day still daydreaming of those boots, that I would just buy them as a "hello, fall" treat. Any reason to justify the purchase (lol). Before I bought them, I checked out some other sites to see if they carried the boot as well, and came across them on Endless's website, but for the full price of $484. Seeing that only made me want to order them from the DSW site that much more. Shout out to DSW for only selling them for $199.95! When you find a steal like this, you can't pass it up. These boots will be in heavy rotation!

Kudos to Kourtney Kardashain for doing them justice. My girl.

Jill Marie Jones, Looking Fun and Fab!

Love these gorgeous photos of Jill Marie Jones, affectionately and forever known as "Toni Childs," from the hit TV sitcom Girlfriends. I sure would love to see her on the small screen again. We need a Girlfriends reunion!

"I never let my guard down, so why did I let it slide for you?"

Lianne La Havas from Black Cab Sessions on Vimeo.

Lianne La Havas is another "new" artist that I recently discovered. Flawless delivery. Her album, Is Your Love Big Enough, is an underrated piece of understated elegance. Look it up, and once again, thank me later. Just trying to add a little diversity to your music collection!

Mara Hruby: Music's Best Kept Secret

Every time I turn on the radio these days, I cringe. I cringe at the thought that, there are so many artists that have not gotten the shine that they deserve. There is so much good music out here, and people have no idea because they don't know how to broaden their horizons, in any aspect. I'm a true music head with a vast collection of musical goodies, I try to share what I come across, but not everyone appreciates music if it isn't being played on their favorite radio stations. Turn that radio off, and put your ear to the streets.  I LOVE discovering new artists, and Mara Hruby now has a place in my heart and in my itunes library. For her EP From Her Eyes, she pays homage to some of her favorite male musicians by covering their songs. Her voice is as flawless as the sky is blue. If you haven't heard of her, this is for you. Thank me later, or something.

The Day Disco Died


"Well, I'll say that I have an incredible ability to fantasize. I really do. I don't have to have things tangible to be able to see them, and therefore I enjoy many things, because they're in my mind." - Donna Summer (1948-2012)

Tweet Tweet! New Music from my Favorite Southern Hummingbird

Tweet is known for that flawless, angelic voice of hers, and to me, is incredibly gifted with authentic talent. She dropped two new tracks on her website today, and her fans are happy! I've been a fan of Tweet since day one, and it's been long overdue for some new music, but it seems she's finally making her way back on the scene. Hopefully we can get a full album this year. I don't think I can wait any longer. Check out her new track Trouble, as well as a remake of Aretha Franklin's Daydreamin. Beautiful.

Skin!

I've been a little obsessed with snakeskin lately. Any type of skin, even the ones I can't afford. On a recent trip to TJ Maxx, I was minding my own business when I saw these Alice and Olivias on display....


Instantly fell in love with them once I tried them on. I hadn't purchased a nice wedge in years (didn't own that many to begin with), so I didn't really hesitate to buy them. They look so much more awesome in person!

Speaking of awesome, I need these....all 3 please!!


Dear Salvatore Ferragamo Gods, please hear my call....

Tracee Ellis Ross Represents for Uptown Magazine!


"I was shy, but it came out in a big personality. My turning point was when I let my hair go naturally and I got contact lenses. I am really blind, by the way. I have these big eyes that don’t work!” - Tracee Ellis Ross

Tufted Headboards = Love!


I'm getting that itch - the itch to decorate/re-do my bedroom, and I am in love with tufted headboards! They look great with platform beds; really, on ANY bed! It gives the room such a sophisticated, cozy feel.

Hello readers! I am still here. Been busy with more important things, like school.....and life. Ok; that, and the fact that I just needed a break from feeling obligated to update this blog on a consistent basis. Truthfully, my desire to blog, shifts all the time. Some days I love it, and some days, I don't even think about it. But I do read the comments that you guys leave, and I'm glad that you all are enjoying the content on my site! I will be back soon, with a real blog post. Pinky swear!
