I don't know about where you live, but the weather here in Charlotte has been a tease.  One day it's a warm 70 degrees and the next it's a bitterly cold 32 degrees.  The warm days have my mind stuck on spring temperatures and thus, spring fashion.  Recently, I came across a beautiful multi-color print dress on a blog and now I'm on the hunt for some multi-color dresses and skirts.  The dress on the blog is quite pricey; way more than I'm willing to spend, so I challenged myself to find the look for less (Side note: When I was studying for the bar exam, The Look For Less was a Read More ...

Here's the BET's The Game Episode 703 recap: Malik is bartending at Phatty's.  Tee-Tee tells Malik his arm keeps flopping and he should have stayed in physical therapy.  Malik gives a speech to the Phatty's waitresses.  He accidentally hits one on the butt and she says he owes her for that.  Malik gets caught in the back with one of the Phatty's waitresses after his arm flopping knocks stuff over and makes a lot of noise. Tasha is at the gynecologist and he tells her she's definitely pregnant.  Chardonnay asks her if she's ok and Tasha expresses her concern about her body bouncing back.  Chardonnay says she has the metabolism Read More ...

What I Wore – It’s Not All Black And White

Black Sweater (Banana Republic) | White Jeans (Target) | Pink Tote (Marshalls) Black Boots (Nine West/DSW) | Gold Necklace (Target)   I teased via Instagram (BlitzAndGlam) a couple of weeks ago that these neon totes at Marshalls were giving me spring fever.  I simply could not leave the store without one.  This tote is definitely a quick fix for these cold, dreary, winter days.  And this sweater.  You thought it was just a plain, black sweater.  It's not.  Much like these jeans.     I sometimes have some other random stuff to say, so I decided to start shooting short videos where I can talk about those things.  Here's the first video with Read More ...

Project Fab – Cooking For One

As someone who is diabetic, I decided that it is time for me to take even more control of my health by watching what I eat even more closely.  I make a habit of keeping a mental note of the amount of carbs, sodium, and fat that I eat.  One way to take better control is by cooking more. Yes, I am going to tie on an apron and sharpen my cooking skills.  So, I headed to Marshalls to see if I could find some cookware that would get me excited about cooking.  Mission accomplished.  I scored 5 matching pieces of Cuisinart cookware plus some cooking utensils.  (Can I be Read More ...

Project Fab – Organizing My Home

I moved to a different part of Charlotte at the end of last summer and yes, I'm still trying to get organized.  I typically keep things pretty neat, but since the move I feel like things have gotten a little less organized (it might help if I would unpack the last 3 boxes).  One thing that I really wanted to organize was my coffee table.  I usually keep my coffee table books on top and some other books and magazines (I have subscriptions to Glamour, Essence, InStyle, ESPN The Magazine, and thanks to my best friend, Alexia, I will soon be getting Entrepreneur) on the bottom.  Sometimes I get a bit busy Read More ...
