Tracee Shoes UNCF

So, I recently had the honor of presenting the United Negro College Fund’s “Evening of the Stars.” It was a great night, and I met the MOST inspiring young people! I love the teens! I’ll be sharing a lot more in the days to come, but go ahead and mark your calendars and set your DVRs now because the show airs January 27th on BET! There’s music, inspirational stories, and so much fun. Don’t miss it!

But the point of this post, is to talk about the shoes I wore to this event. Well they’re not so much shoes, as they are foot sculptures. There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING comfortable or wearable about these shoes. They are, however, gorgeous. So I just thought of them as jewelry for the feet, and hobbled and winced my way down the red carpet. I have a secret though: I didn’t just bring these shoes to the event.

Ask Amy - Negativity Cover

As if it wasn’t enough to absolutely KILL IT at the Golden Globes with fellow host Tina Fey, Amy Poehler goes and releases this awesome advice video. You guys, I am so obsessed with Amy Poehler. LUV HER! For those who don’t know, Amy has this video series called Ask Amy where she gives advice to young girls. In her most recent video she’s asked how to resist negativity, and her reply rocks! I love what she says and how she says it and its great info for everyone —a great reminder with helpful suggestions.
