"Top 25"

So as you all should know I go to Howard University, The Mecca, The Capstone. I love my school and I hate defending it. Fareal, I get tired of hearing the ignorance of people when it comes to going to a HBCU. The conversation of why I choose to go to Howard is always reoccuring. Its actually quite annoying. I just wanted to show you guys that I go to the 2nd best HBCU and I was accepted to the "best" HBCU. If you ask me Howard is the best. Spelman is a biased option because its an all girl school.I choose Howard over Spelman without any regrets. To all you guys that believe Hampton is the "REAL HU" look where your school stands. Now if you choose a school over Howard you should feel bad if you see that they are not on the list. However I wanna congratulate all the schools that made the list. Now according to US News & Post here are the official rankings.

1 Spelman College: Atlanta, GA Score 100

"Blog Of The Week Other Than Mine Of Course"

Okay, so I've decided to do a new weekly blog. I wanna introduce you guys to some of the blogs I adore.

My first blog that I enjoy reading is "The Segment" (nebbys.blogspot.com). I love it I was introduced to it buy Deedz last September and since then I have fell in love. I think you will to. The writers are amazingly down to earth. It has three writers Kenza,Andy,& Nebby. I follow Nebby on twitter and she's funny.I never had any interest in going to Canada until I started readint thier blog. So you should take the time out of your day to read her blog. Why??? Because I said so. Now go ahead and type in nebbys.blogspot.com.

Why are you still here?????
Go...I'm serious lol.

Kim & Reggie Split





Okay....
So What's this I'm hearing about Reggie Bush & Kim Kardashian going thier seperate ways???
It can't be. I am really hoping this a rumor because it seems like just the other day she was tweeting aboout going over his house to spend some quality time with him.
I mean she's beautiful and if she can't keep a man who can.
I am probally not happy about this report because this man claims he doesn't like "Black Woman".
That subject is a whole different story. However If anyone knows the deal with this please let me know what's going on.
I have a hard time believing anything mediatakout.com says, but alledgedly Kim and Usher are supposed to being going out on a date in the near future.
So Soon Kim???
I mean Nas & Kelis blew us all out the window, but Kim and Reggie too. This is too much. At least we still have Beyonce and Hov.

Peace,Love&Life

Best Kept Secret : ASOS.com



I love to shop, just as any other girl. When I went away to school one of my friends introduced me to this website when I was having trouble finding a dress to wear to an event. I fell in love with the website. The prices are affordable and I doubt that you will shop here and bump into a girl with the same outfit on.



I am personally a big fan of the evening dress section. I hope that you would adore this website as much as I have.Its a UK based business, but they provide a currency converter.So next time you wanna do some online shopping give ASOS.com a try.

DENIM,DENIM,DENIM

Introduce me to a girl who doesn't love denim and I'll call her crazy.I believe denim is the universal fabric. It can take you from casual to ulra-glam. Though we all love this wonderful fabric, we sometimes have trouble wearing it the "right" way for our body type. I'm not gonna leave yal stranded, I have a few pointers to put, you in the perfect pair of jeans.



Now if your petite like me and dare to look taller you should try a pair of slim fitting boot cut jeans.(If needed take them to the cleaners and get them hemmed.) Now if you happen to have the "NO BUTT AT ALL SYNDROME" you should seek "stretch" jeans with detailed pockets. The detail on your pockets will steal the attention given to the actual size of your butt(or lack of lol). If you have long legs you should be looking for jeans that offer longer inseams such as 7 For All Mankind and Rock & Republic. A big piece of advice for all my pear shaped ladies is to run away from super-tapered jeans. Your best bet is a low rise boot-cut,trouser, or flare style pair of jeans. Now to my Plus-Size Fashionistas please don't feel the need to go for the baggy look. This will only make your appear bigger and I know that is the very thing you do not look forward to. Instead try something more form fitting(not spandex tight though).Lastly to all my straight up and down chicas make sure your jeans fit on your hips to avoid the dreaded "Mom Jean" look.

OK, I can't stop with just advice for the body types. A big reoccurring question is: "Is it okay to pair denim with denim?". (Now listen closely.)I think its perfectly do-able (do-able may not be a word lol).The key is you have to do it right. Now what does "right" mean? Try not to match the denims. Matching denims is not cool. It is not okay to look like you are wearing a denim suit. As long as you mismatch the denims pieces, you will look great.

If you want to show off your best denim look send your picture, name, and info about your outfit to fashionizanepidemic@hotmail.com for you chance to be featured on "The Looking Glass".

Until Next Time
Peace,Love&Life
