I'm In Love


Kristin looks nice, but I could really care less about her. I'm in love with the DRESS. I have to have it. I'm sure its out of my budget. These photos are actually from an ASOS shoot. Brett Bailey styled the shoot and he did an amazing job. The dress is by Rafeal Cennamo and the shoes are YSL.

The Art of Taking 3 Steps Back

Females are wonderful and all, but I can't stand that emotional part of us. You know the part that blindfolds us and puts us in the cuffs. These emotions can be dangerous; however it only gets worse when we start thinking. You know trying to be like a scientist when it comes to all this how can I prevent my heart from being broken.

See, I'm that female. I will say, "never judge your present on your past." Then it hits me in the middle of the night when I'm thinking. You know those thoughts, like, "If everything sounds right it has to be game. That's the whole point of Game. It captivates you." So, then I'm like wtf?!? I just been G'd. I'm falling for this man and this could all be G. I get frustrated and because every one that I have ever been serious with has messed up, I remove myself from the equation. I do the 3 Steps.

1. I no longer refer to you as boo or babe or anything besides your name.
2. Then I appear to busy. I don't text or call as much.
3. Eventually I stop all the things that made you want me in the first place. I shut down.

Some boys spot it and confront it. If you confront it, I snap back into the person before the "3 steps". Some take it as I don't want to be bothered and leave the scene. This is a problem. I can't keep doing this. I call it catching myself before I fall.I don't want to fall victim to thinking I am protecting my heart. I need help. I don't want to lose the one because of my stupid tactics. Obviously if I feel the need to bring out the "3 Steps" I'm really into you and you must be showing me that your into me. The "3 steps" occur before it can ever be official. The worst thing about it is that I actually think heavily before I carry the action out.

The super sad thing is that I'm not the only female who does this. Why? Us females are confusing as hell. We are either giving someone a million chances or not giving someone a single chance. Men please don't be excited because I am female bashing because I have something for you too.

A Lil Humor

I saw this in the Spring of last year. I retrieved it for you guys. lol

Celeb Style

I think staying on top of your style is like taking a class in college. The only difference is that it never ends and you never have the same text book. I like to stay up on everything. That doesn't mean I follow every trend, but I try my best not to be lost on it at all. So here are some cute outfits that were spotted this week. If you looking for a new way to arrange things already in your closet check these ladies out. Oh, shout outs to these guys stylists.

Who Did It Best??




So, the one that is in back order is from Urban Outfitters and I am in complete lust with it. It's only $38, but you probably wont find me in it because everyone is going to have it. That's why it is in back order. I would hate to be in the club and see 5 other girls with the same thing on.
The other one is the famous already worn out one from American Apparel. It's $40. I loved it, but everyone has this. If I was to succumb to looking like everyone else I would definitely choose the one from Urban though.

"That's Her"


"FIND A GUY WHO CALLS YOU BEAUTIFUL INSTEAD OF HOT, WHO CALLS YOU BACK WHEN YOU HANG UP ON HIM, WHO WILL LIE UNDER THE STARS AND LISTEN TO YOUR HEARTBEAT, OR WILL STAY AWAKE JUST TO WATCH YOU SLEEP... WAIT FOR THE BOY WHO KISSES YOUR FOREHEAD, WHO WANTS TO SHOW YOU OFF TO THE WORLD WHEN YOU ARE IN SWEATS, WHO HOLDS YOUR HAND IN FRONT OF HIS FRIENDS, WHO THINKS YOU'RE JUST AS PRETTY WITHOUT MAKEUP ON. ONE WHO IS CONSTANTLY REMINDING YOU OF HOW MUCH HE CARES AND HOW LUCKY HIS IS TO HAVE YOU.... THE ONE WHO TURNS TO HIS FRIENDS AND SAYS, 'THAT'S HER."

Okay, so the first time I read this and I fell in love with it. Then last night I was on the phone with HIM and he says to his line brothers..."That's my Baby." I instantly thought of this last line and I'm convinced that he is what I need right now. I just had to share it with you guys because it's been amazing every since we started talking. I don't get my hopes up high or anything, but I definitely enjoy this present time. Yeah I'm hype, but so what we all have these moments.

VENTING.....


So, I have some things to say.
These things go vice/versa.
(When things are in all caps, I'm yelling)

Males do not play with any one's emotions. Let people move on. It's not okay for you to not know what you want when it comes to someone else's feelings. Mixed signals are not okay. It's not any one's problem, but yours that your not mature enough to decide what you really want. Grow up.
Females do not go in circles. Yeah he's a jerk for leading you in these circles, but it's your fault that the circle keeps revolving. You need to realize your worth. You, yeah you deserve to have your own man. You shouldn't have to share the man you truly care about with another girl. If you don't understand this you deserve to be in this dumb cycle.
Females it is okay to cry. Yeah, it's okay. I'm so sick and tired of people telling females not to cry. Crying is a release. You can find some of the best closure by crying.
Males and females please stop cheating. It's pointless. I mean if you really want to do the real thing, just admit that you are not ready for a relationship. Most people would rather be broken up with then to be cheated on.
FEMALES, STOP THE CRAZY SHIT!!!!!! DO NOT SHOW UP UNANNOUNCED. MALES DO NOT LIKE THIS. THIS ACTUALLY SCARES THEM. SO, PLEASE STOP WHILE YOU ARE AHEAD. THINK YOUR CRAZY THOUGHTS, BUT PLEASE DON'T ACT ON THEM. IT'S NOT OKAY AND WHILE WE ARE AT IT, DON'T GO THROUGH ANY ONE'S PHONE BUT YOURS. YOU WILL FIND EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. YOUR ONLY GONNA HURT YOURSELF STUPID.
Males please stop lying about how many girls you are getting. Females know that you are lying. There is also NO NEED FOR YOU TO TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY YOU ARE GETTING. IF YOU ARE GETTING PLENTY OF MONEY, IT WILL TALK FOR ITSELF. SHUT THE HELL UP ABOUT WHAT YOU GOT UNLESS YOU SHOWING ME SOMETHING I NEVER SEEN BEFORE. SHOW ME A JET THAT YOU OWN AND DO NOT RENT AND THEN MAYBE I CAN LISTEN.
Females please stop making the present significant other pay for the last one's mistakes. This is not okay. It means you have not moved on and should not be dating.
EVERYONE STOP ENTERING RELATIONSHIPS THAT YOU CAN NOT SEE YOURSELF IN FOR THE LONG RUN. I KNOW WE ARE ALL YOUNG, BUT WHAT IS THE POINT OF A RELATIONSHIP THAT YOU CAN'T SEE GROWING. JUST BE SINGLE. YES IT IS OKAY TO BE SINGLE AND WHILE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SINGLE I HAVE SOMETHING ELSE TO SAY. EVERYONE COULD YOU PLEASE BE HAPPY BY YOURSELF BEFORE YOU TRY TO THROW YOURSELF IN ANY TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP.
Females remember boys will always talk to the girl with less standards when they are not ready for a relationship. It has nothing to do with you, it's just the easier option. Take it as a compliment.
Last, but not least please stop being afraid of love. IT IS OKAY TO FALL IN LOVE.

Once Upon a Louboutin


I often take the time to look at beautiful things that are completely out of my price range. I stumbled over these and fell in love. Christian Louboutin is amazing. His shoes never fail to amaze me. These beauties almost sent me into a coma.

Zac Posen for Target


Are you on a tight budget, but still hope to look fabulous? Don't worry there is a solution for you. I usually tell people who complain about spending too much money to shop vintage, but I just discovered something better. Mr. Zac Posen is doing a line exclusively for Target. Yes, the same Zac Posen that is found at stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. The line doesn't debut until April 25th; however, this is still wonderful.So far the price range is about $50 -$100 which is completely a steal for a designer of this caliber. I hope you all are exited and keep an eye open because I definitely am.

Spring 2010 Trend: The Stunning Warrior

The new trend that was spotted on many catwalks for Spring 2010 is that of an amazing warrior.The inspiration for these pieces have been taken from many places such as ancient Rome,Egypt,and the Celtic warrior woman.Timeless attributes from each culture are given a modern embellishment creating pieces that every trend setter's closet will hold.Items tend to contain metal plating,tunics, chain-mail inspired detailing, and tribal inspired motifs. Don't be scared to experiment. There is no one correct way to execute this trend. It's all about finding you inner warrior and what is right for you.

Post 100

What's more delightful than new music? I can't think of an answer, so my 100th post is Monica's new single, "Everything to Me". I love it. I love Monica, so it doesn't surprise me. She can actually sing unlike so many others that are out right now.

Embrace The Moment

" Everyone's built different and you can't make someone pay for someone else's mistakes.That's the beauty of finding love.Love is a learning experience.....So many girls can forgive one dude & give him hella chances, but they won't even give the next guy who just may be the right guy a single chance." -Diandra Davidson (@designerdeedz on twitter)


This quote is simply true. It's so honest you can't deny it. Females tend to become bitter after being hurt by someone they truly love. I know heartbreak sucks, but you can't fall victim to that. It defeats the whole purpose of even dating someone new. I never want to miss out on the perfect guy for me because I made him pay for what the last one did. My piece of advice is to take time for yourself after break-ups and don't look for nothing. I found that the best things come when your not looking at all. Don't be scared when it finds you either. Just learn to enjoy the moments that could possibly build something srong.

No, I'm not in love right now. I'm still single;however, I have found an individual who keeps a smile on my face. I am enjoying this moment & not getting caught up in fantasies for the future. You can't force things to happen, that ruins things. I guess just keep an open mind. There are some happy relationships, look at Bey & Hov. If you like him, give him a chance you wouldn't want to miss out on something beautiful. If two people want something, it will work. Look at Kim & Reggie. They definitely are determined to make long distance work. Anything is possible when it's meant to be. Don't be discouraged.
