When I can’t sleep sometimes I turn to Instagram. It’s not the smartest way to induce the z’s but sometimes it does lead to inspiration… during my most recent insomnia spell I happened upon Tamu McPherson, and OMG she’s incredible! I mean look at her style! She’s inspired a burst of clothing inspiration. I was particularly into her baggy sweater and skirt combo so I dove into my closet and emerged with this interpretation. Also for your viewing pleasure, I’ve included a collage of some of Tamu’s other incredible looks. I mean, COME ON!!! I’m sure you will see me in my interpretations sometime soon. Check out her blog.
You all are at it again…asking fun questions! This time around we’re talking about style, KISS t-shirts, movies, TV, and more KISS t-shirts (seriously, I love this KISS t-shirt!). Anyways, here’s the newest installment of You Asked, I Answered. Thanks for always asking such wonderful questions. PS. I can’t wait to hear how you describe my style, tehehehe.
Okay, so I have a confession to make: our live-styling session on Instagram was insanely fun for me! You guys left such thoughtful (and sometimes hilarious) comments, and I gotta say you all have amazing taste! I mean some of the pins your posted to my group board on Pinterest were absolutely gorgeous! Anyways, I loved all the looks you voted on for Black Girls Rock, so to recap all of the fun I put together this little video of all the hilarious moments from our online dress-up session. Thanks for participating!
Welp, the #OctoberChallenge is finally finished! PHEW! How did it go for you all! It was rough, but having come through it, I can definitely say that it was worth it. I did something I have never done before, I feel great and I see the change in my body. There was sweat, there was laughter, there was even some screaming, but the important thing is that I pushed myself… and when I wanted to give up… I kept going because I told you all I would. To memorialize the experience, I’ve put together this fun video. But now I want to know about YOUR #OctoberChallenge! How did it go? Any insights you gained? Do you hate me now? I wanna hear all about it!
So last Sunday BET aired the 4th annual Black Girls Rock Awards and it was a BLAST! I hosted alongside the always wonderful, Regina King. It was such a pleasure to help honor such inspiring women. Patti LaBelle, Brooklyn Wright, Ameena Matthews, Mara Brock Akil and more…Black Girls Rock celebrated names we know, and introduced us to the names we will never forget.
So if you’re in search of some inspiration and missed the original airing, don’t worry! You can catch an extended version of Sunday’s show TONIGHT on BET! To get you excited, I’ve included a gallery of some of my favorite moments from the show, so browse through, watch tonight, and let me know your favs! (Spoiler Alert: there are some amazing performances from Miz LaBelle, Kelly Rowland, and OMG ALICE SMITH! Good luck picking a favorite).
