Sasha Takes Over

Everyone knows that I am the President of Beyonce's Fan Club LOL. Well in this case both Beyonce Knowles and Sasha Fierce. Its no doubt that Sasha is the best female pop entertainer. I mean this girl has E.N.E.R.G.Y. Beyonce released her new album I Am...Sasha Fierce last Tuesday and performed my favorite song on the album Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)...Here Take a look if you missed it

Chic is Beauty...Beauty is Benefit

Hey Luvies,
I might be the first to confess that I am not a make-up fanatic. But I adore well done makeup on a beautiful flawless skin. During the summer I was thirsty for a edgy look, something "chic" and something different, so I went on a beauty hunt. Where can I go for beauty samples and advise? Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Right! Bloomingdales. So as usual whenever I enter a store/restaurant I immediately need assistance. lol Dont ask its just a bad habbit I guess. So I was directed to the Benefit desks where I was literally "hooked up"...Beautiful natural makeup fueled me to buy a few products. Take a look at whats in my make up kit.

Eyecome Fades Dark Circles

This kit comes in handy Believe me it does...

Rosy chicks makes a good finish...Glamorous

Oh, and I cant do without my lipgloss...This makes your lips pop I swear!

Sleep and Relaxation....

When I was younger I thought a nighttime was a part of the day when outdoors were strictly forbidden, I thought the era from Dusk to Dawn was haunted and if I looked out I would be taken and eaten up by the "Boogie Man". I thought nighttimes would never end and that the sun took Oh so Long to shine upon my head for play time. Naive and innocent I'm I entering a world with no responsibilities but to learn the facts of life. You know, how to solve a simple math problem or in science watching the life of a red bean evolve into a plant over a week. I thought that was all there was to a day. Waking up at 7 am going to bed at 9pm and this viciously repeated cycle. Until we're grown we never know or fully realize how important a "good night rest" means. I simply took for granted from day to passing day how much sleeping has really meant and how it played a role in my up-bringing. I can testify to the fact that when taking classes fulltime,interning, co curricular activities and working retail to have a stable savings account, the phrase "good night sleep" is officially forbidden from my vocabulary. Over the past few days, weeks or even months I have learnt to appreciate the importance of sleep and relaxation. I literally stayed up the entire Friday night editing She-blogs myspace and adding posts to my personal chic blog. I never realized how sunrise could crip up in just a blink of an eye. The after effects? Dont even ask LOL
I may have looked like I've been suffering from pink eye, a terrible flu and a mental disease the day after, but this experience has taught me alot. Sleep is essential for a persons health and well-being. Many people including myself do not get enough sleep or suffer from a lack of sleep. Moodiness and disinhibition are some of the first signs I experiences from lack of sleep. Studies shows that if a sleep-deprived person doesn’t sleep after these initial signs, the person may then start to experience apathy, slowed speech and flattened emotional responses, impaired memory and an inability to be novel or multitask. As a person gets to the point of falling asleep, he or she will fall into micro sleeps(5-10 seconds) that cause lapses in attention, nod off while doing an activity like driving or reading and then finally experience hypnagogic hallucinations. SO from today on I will sleep as much as possible and forget breaking my records lol lol lol

Paris Hilton...Now That's Hot!

Many may disagree but every since Paris Hilton went to jail she has been quite good, or can I say better? We've been reading less about Paris and her million and one club hits in just one night or her beef with long time bff Nicole Richie. She has proven that there is a philantropic side to her. Earlier this year she gave out an extremely generous donation for the construction of a childrens hospital in Los Angeles.
Then she was spotted in South Africa signing autographs and interacting with the fans.
But whats really hot with Paris and her beau Benji??? Rumors have it that the two have broken up because of Benji's controlling and overprotective nature. Really??? A source said that the two are still deeply in love but better off as friends. Now THATS HOT! lol

New Music Videos

Seventeen and B!

I'm assuming everyone read the new issue of Seventeen Magazine where Queen B graced the covers with her bright smile and the amazing new look, promoting the release of her new album I AM...Sasha Fierce.
In this Decemeber issue B featured as Seventeens "Style Star of The Year" at a special press release on Wednesday.

She's definately a female version of a hustler. This Diva has been extremely busy this week with the release of her album, press releases and an exclusive interview for the Tyra Banks Show. We will be seeing less of Beyonce and more of Sasha (B's ultra ego ) as the new year proceeds including her big performance at the American Music Awards which airs this Sunday.

Luv Yah B!

Game Fever...

Everyone knows that I am an avid follower of The Game which airs on the CW ever since its first season. I dont really know what keeps me coming back every week to make The Game a must see. Maybe the comedy, the melancholy, the drama or Derwins cute face and sexy body! woooww lol but neither-the-less I enjoy watching The Game. Its fun and exciting and educates us on matters affecting our every day life whether you're black, hispanic, Asian or caucasion. When pro football player Derwin Davis (Pooch Hall) cheated on fiancee Melonie Barnett (Tia Mowray) in season two I thought this was the prime example of an average disfunctional relationship. It left followers in suspense and aching game fever. Now they're back with season three and just when we thought the dynamic duo Derwin and Melonie would patch things up in their relationship? He gets Janae pregnant. Poor Mel had to deal with this baby mama drama. I swear I've never gotten upset or emotional over a movie or a show before I saw this episode. Take a look.

What's Hot In Washington???

President Elect Barack Obama with his wife Michelle Obama and two daughters Malia and Sasha before delivering his victory speech on November 4th.

President Elect Barack Obama (YES WE DID) has allegedly chosen South Dakota's Senator Thomas A Daschle as secertary of health and human services along with Deputy Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. as attorney general according to the New York Times.

While President elect Obama chooses his cabinet America is anticipating the nomination of Hilary Clinton as Secertary of State.
The Obama administration has also announced that the President elect has also filled other key White House positions including David Axelrod his chief campaign strategist to serve as senior white house advisor.
Thats whats hot in D.C! Until next time...

Ri Ri Fenty

This Bajan beauty has definately proven herself to be one of the best in the music business. When she walked the red carpet rocking that cut at the Grammy's she automatically became the "It Girl".

She rocked this look on BET's 106 and park where she spoke about her album release Good Girl Gone Bad. Look at this girl. Groomed to perfection. Loving the look Ri Ri!

At first I wasnt sure about the look. Although she is extremely pretty. The long brown extensions, over done make up and same old video story lines were becoming over rated.

Baby Boom

So I promised myself that I would share this awesome-aweful experience with my readers. Wonder why the use of the oxymoron? Well it accents my state of confusion. On Monday afternoon while I was making my way to work I decided to make a quick stop at Rite Aid which is just across the street from my apartment. I went to get a pair of cute pink jellie headphones lol for my ipod. Keep in mind that rite aid is less than a block away at the four cross. By the time I left my apartment door, crossed the street and walked up to the store I literally passed 7 pregnant women. Its awesome because children are precious jewels from the womb. I'm not a mother but I have younger cousins that bring joy and excitment to my life. Whats aweful is the baby boom in this economic crisis! It is very sad to say but the cost of pregnancy and raring a child is much less than any form of contraceptive! More than half of theses kids are born out of wedlock and are left to feel the brunt of this economic pain! Trust me I would be the last person on earth to point figures at someone who made a choice that would change his or her life. I am a care giver and someone with a frigile heart so it kills me inside when children suffer. If you feel the same way I do or think that I am totally incorrect for saying this Please comment below!
