My Guilty Pleasure

2015,January 22
Thumbnail image for My Guilty Pleasure

This week's prompt for Project 52 is "Guilty Pleasure."  I actually took this photo several weeks ago when I decided to do a post about the magazines that I read, but once I looked over the list of Project 52 photography prompts, I decided to save it for this week.   So, I love magazines.  Over the years I've had subscriptions to a lot of different magazines.  The bad part is that these days they seem to pile up and before I know it, I have 3 months of unread magazines.  But that is changing.  This year I vowed to stay on top of reading my magazines, which means I'm Read More ...

Here's the recap of BET's The Game Episode 803: Chardonnay watches an entertainment report by Perez Hilton about Chardonnay and Jason's wedding.   Chardonnay shows the video clip to Tasha.  Tasha says his report is word-for-word what she said at the hair salon.  Chardonnay says it's slander.  Chardonnay asks her to call a few people to clear her name.  Tasha says they will get her truth out there and then launch her brand.  Tasha asks Tee-Tee to watch Kai. Jason and Blue are looking at practice footage.  Blue says he sucks.  Jason says he doesn't suck and that they'll get it together.  Malik changes the channel to a movie.  Jason gets Read More ...

Winter Shorts

We don't often think of wearing shorts in winter, because, well, it's cold.  But when you think about it, we wear dresses and skirts in winter, so why can't we wear shorts, too?  Well, I'm here to tell you that you can and I'm going to give you one good reason why you should – these Kate Spade Saturday wool shorts that I scored on clearance at Marshalls.  I'm really into neutrals right now, because neutral colors are so chic, and these grey shorts fit right into my classic, chic style.  Pair them with tights, a turtleneck or sweater, and knee boots or over-the-knee boots and you'll look very winter appropriate.  These will Read More ...

My Morning Routine

Earlier this week, I shared with you my travel list for 2015.  My other main focus for this year is to practice my photography and become a superstar photographer by December 31, 2015.  Ok, maybe not superstar, but I definitely want to see my photography improve over the course of the year.  So, when fellow blogger Mimi of Lipgloss & Binky posted about hers and LaShawn's (Everyday Eyecandy) photography challenge, Project 52, I was all in (ok, maybe not quite ALL in since I didn't post for week 1 of the challenge. Oops.).  Since the week 2 photo prompt is "Morning," I decided to photograph and write about my morning routine (this Read More ...

Season 8 is here, so let's get into it!  Here's the recap of BET's The Game Season 8 Premiere: Chardonnay is running out of the church and rips the Just Married sign off the car.  She gets ready to drive away as Jason says he just opened his mouth and words fell out.  He says he wants to explain.  She speeds away and he mumbles, "I love you."

New Year, New Theme

2015,January 14
Thumbnail image for New Year, New Theme

I don't usually do New Year's resolutions, but instead, I usually set goals for each new year. Resolutions tend to be general like, "I'm going to work out more."  Goals tend to be more specific, such as, "I will buy a gym membership January 1." This year, I decided to give 2015 a theme – Happiness.  This year I'm all about doing more of the things that make me happy and less of the things that don't. Plain and simple.  I already shared with you my travel list for the year.  Travel makes me happy.  My other main focus for the year is studying, practicing, and improving my photography.  I Read More ...

My Travel List 2015

2015,January 12
Thumbnail image for My Travel List 2015

Each year I like to make a list of the places I want to travel to that year.  Each year, I try to go at least one place that I've never been before. Last year, that was San Juan, Puerto Rico.  The year before that it was Las Vegas, San Francisco, and San Jose.  This year, my list keeps growing, so I thought that I would document it here on the blog before it gets really out of hand.  I didn't travel nearly as much last year as I have the previous few years, so I've got a lot of places that I want to go this year.  We'll see Read More ...

    I spent my Christmas holiday back home in Alabama.  I could not wait for Christmas, because I was so looking forward to going home.  It was my first time going home since last Christmas, believe it or not (I couldn't believe it.  I'm going to do my best to make it back home before next Christmas!).  And since it had been a LONG time since I've taken a road trip, I decided to pack up my car and hit the road to Alabama (I'd forgotten how much I like taking road trips).     I arrived home in Killen, Alabama (just outside of Florence, which is about an Read More ...
