I have absolutely fallen in love with OPI’s Holland Nail Lacquer Collection! These colors are so pretty and I want to try every one of them! I can see a few of these colors being put together for the ombre style. If you’re not aware of what that is, it’s where you have different shades of the same color on one hand. Like you may have a range of blues from midnight to robins egg to sky blue on one hand. I really think that’s a pretty way to display versatility with nail polish.
All of the colors in this collection are dope and are perfect for the spring. I can’t wait to try them on my nails and toes! Are you feeling these colors and will you be wearing them this spring? Below you can check out the individual shades and how they look on the actual nail. I’ve also included the name of each. Hit me up with comments and let me know which is your favorite color!
SN: Kiss Me On My Tulips and Thanks A Windmillion are so pretty! I have to try those :*
If you know me then you know that Faith Evans is my absolute favorite singer of all time! I keep her first two albums in my regular rotation like they’re brand new! I recently got my laptop fixed, so now that I’m able to finally put music on my iPhone I spent some time during the weekend updating my playlists.
Sometimes I really forget how great of an impact certain songs or certain music can have over your life. Since today is #PositiveMonday I figured this would be the perfect song to post for a little motivation! “Keep The Faith” is such an inspirational song… Faith is basically singing about how you have to keep the faith to make it through the dark back into the light when your back is against the wall. Along with the motivational lyrics, Faith’s soulful voice just takes it over the edge making it the perfect song to inspire others!
I posted the song below and the youtube video has the lyrics to go along with it… make sure you check it out below! And if you want to share any other songs you use for motivation, feel free!

Happy Monday Bosses and Boss Chics! It feels weird working on a Monday since last week we were out due to the snow, but I’m thankful to be alive and kicking nonetheless. This week is going to be a very busy, exciting week for me and I thought it would be perfect to tie everything together for #PositiveMonday.
February 2012 Boss Chic Of The Month
I wanted to start doing a Boss Chic Of The Month every month to show love to young women and girls who are out there doing their thing. Well this month I wanted to bring attention to a special girl in my very own life. My little cousin Kendra, who will be 16 in March, is probably one of the smartest people I know. People have always said I’m smart, but this girl has me beat.
I recently found out that Kendra is ranked number 3 in her sophomore class of 276 students. Not only that but she has a GPA of 4.5! It’s amazing to see a young girl her age working so hard towards her education in a world where teenage pregnancy, drug use, and alcoholism is so common. Kendra has never been the partying type, for the most part she’s a pretty quiet girl. But at the same time, she’s not a follower by any means. She walks her own path.
I asked her what she plans on doing when she graduates from high school. She told me that she was thinking about going into pharmacy and studying at UNC Charlotte. I’m sure whatever she does she will succeed. I think it’s great that there are still young girls out there who exemplify respectable behavior and don’t do the norm just because it’s what everyone else is doing.
I’m excited to see what path she takes in life and there are other young women out there as well that I keep my eyes on. I can only tell you to stay true to yourselves and be the boss chics that you are!
Sweats and heels is probably the one look that most people automatically say is a fashion fail, and I used to think the same thing until I got older and developed this quirky style that I have. Now I'm down to try just about anything! We first saw this look years ago worn by 106th & Park's first co-host, Free. She used to have this look down to a science, but back then no one else was wearing it. (Mariah Carey doesn't count she wears heels with EVERYTHING lol).
Now it's a different story though. Not too long ago, 106th & Park's newest co-host Rocsi posted a picture to her instagram rocking heels and sweats, and she shouted out Free in her caption as being the first to ever do it. Since then I've seen the trend steadily growing and the question still remains is it fashionable to wear sweats with heels? I say yes! BUT it does depend on how you wear it and the type of sweats you're wearing. I think each girl in the pics above represented the look very well, and I found a pair of sweatpants similar to theirs that I think would look good with heels as well.
Below you can check out two pair of sweatpants that I found at TopShop.com. Each pair are priced at $50 and you can click the link below each to go straight to the website if you want to purchase them. Leave a comment and let me know what your thoughts are on this look! Would you wear it??

So who knew that actress Mischa Barton designed handbags through ASOS? Not me! I was browsing through their website and ran across some of her bags and found that they're pretty nice! They seem to be made of good quality and they are very fashionable.
One of my pet peeves when shopping for purses is finding a decent material and design. I don't really care if my handbags are name brand or not, but I can't stand a cheap looking purse! The bag shown above is the Belle Boxy Shoulder Bag and can be found here
for $60.88. The one shown is in midnight blue, but they also have it in black as well as cream. I think this bag would tie in perfectly with the "sailor stripes" look! Since the bag is midnight blue you could pair it with a pair of white linen pants, a sailor stripe shirt, and a cute pair of sandals or wedges. You'd have a perfect spring look on your hands
I did a post last week with the perfect pair of shoes for this bag.. I've posted a pic of the shoes below, so make sure you check those out as well. Are you feeling this bag?? Hit me up with your thoughts!

So who watched tonight's season premiere of Basketball Wives? All I can say is drama, drama, drama! First of all how old are these women? If they like it I love it because they sure are my entertainment! I'm pretty sure some of it is scripted but the main thing I want to talk about is the relationships/friendships between these women.
Coming into the episode Suzie was up to her usual antics of trying to be the middle man between everyone. I thought it was quite funny when Royce called her out about how fake she is… Suzie didn't know what to say! She irks my nerves more than anyone else on the show. Then when the new girls met Jennifer, she acted like they had something to prove to her. I guess they take that circle very seriously lol.

HAPPY 24th BIRTHDAY ROBYN RIHANNA FENTY!! Ya'll know that's my main chick in my head lol. Obviously the beef between Chris Brown and Rihanna has ceased as he wished her a happy birthday around midnight last night. It has been rumored that Breezy would be on her remix to "Birthday Cake" from Talk That Talk and I have the link for you below!
The song is a little fast paced, I'm assuming because it's leaked rather than the actual version. But you can check it out below and let me know what you think! SN: I wonder how Breezy's girlfriend Karrueche feels about all this… last night she retweeted someone and said "Didn't give a f*ck yesterday, don't give a f*ck today, and I probably won't give a f*ck tomorrow" #chile lol
Welp I know the drama behind this will be surfacing with the quickness! *grabs popcorn and sips tea* #staytuned lol
