Another Tuesday night…. another episode of The Game. I may be in the minority but I just love this show! In last night’s episode Kiera and Blue’s flirty exchanges are put on hold as the focus is shifted to Chardonnay and Jason. After last night I must say that I have really grown to love this couple. Chardonnay challenges Jason in ways that he could have never imagined before, and she doesn’t settle for the improper treatment that he gave Kelly in the past. He’s in love with her sassy ways and how she is always herself no matter what.
Happy Valentine’s Day bosses and boss chics! I hope everyone is spending their day with the one they love! If not suck it up, it’s just one day lol. Anywho remember awhile back I had annouced that I would be doing a giveway for Valentine’s Day? I asked readers to send a pic of a Valentine’s Day date inspired outfit and let us know where the items came from, then we would vote. However I only received one response and she actually sent three different looks!
Destiny, who is from my hometown but now a freshman at UVA, did her thing with her three Valentine’s Day date looks! I think the first look is sexy and fit for a romantic dinner date. The second is more flirty and fun and fit for a date that’s more casual and laid back. The last look is chic and classy, but still not too dressy. It could be worn on a fancy date, or just a casual date depending on how you feel for the day. Destiny got all of her pieces from Forever21 but the red dress on the left came from GoJane.
I love how she gave us different looks that all tie in to the lover’s holiday. She played it up with the color red but kept it versatile at the same time. Destiny is one of my favorite fashionistas and she’s still young so imagine how her style will evolve over time. Get it girl! Be on the lookout for your gift in the mail soon and thanks so much for participating!
What’s up bosses and boss chics? It’s been quite some time since I’ve written any blogs but boy has this been a long month! First of all let me just state that I am so thankful to even be here writing this blog as we speak. Two weeks ago I went to visit my grandma for the weekend in Chesapeake, Va and ended up being on the receiving end of the unexpected.
On the go actress/mom Angelina Jolie is a true boss!
Happy Monday bosses and boss chics! I’m a little late posting today but it’s been yet another hectic Monday. I have a three page paper due tomorrow for my Professional Communications class, and of course I hadn’t started it as of today. It wouldn’t be me if I had lol. So despite the fact that I had class this morning and worked eight hours today, I came home and completed my paper within two hours. Sometimes I get so mad at myself for always waiting until the last minute to get things done, and I tend to beat myself up about it. But then I thought about it today and you know what? At least I get it all done. (Plus it helps that writing comes natural to me *smiles*)
It’s a sad day in the hip hop world as long term hip hop manager and founder of Violator Management, Chris Lighty, was found dead outside of his home in the Bronx. He was reported to have committed suicide after a heated argument with his estranged wife, Veronica. Unfortunately he was only 44 years old.
Chris Lighty is responsible for the jump start to the career of A Tribe Called Quest, and was the long standing manager of the likes of Mariah Carey, 50 Cent, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes, and Ja Rule to name a few. It’s crazy how so many significant figures are not only dying these days, but taking their own lives. The sad thing is we’re hearing about these types of acts on a national level way more than we used to. You can get the full details of his death at NY Daily News to find out more.
Below you can check out a few tweets from different celebrities who he influenced. Our prayers and condolensces go out to his family, friends, and those who worked with him or were influenced by him throughout the years! May his soul rest in peace
What’s up bosses and boss chics! I haven’t been staying up on my fashion posts like I normally do, but I found the cutest shirt dress for cheap and couldn’t wait to blog about it. Shirt dresses are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you could ever have! They can be worn over tights in the winter, or with cute sandals and accessories in the summer. I was doing some online browsing and came across this cute shirt dress pictured above from Forever21 for only $14.80. I wanted to create a look centered around this dress that would be inexpensive yet chic.
I paired this dress with multicolored cork platforms, a tan waist belt, and wooden bracelets to color block with the shoes. Each item is under $30 a piece, which proves that you don’t have to buy name brand just to be fly. out the rest of the items below and let me know if you’re feeling this look!
Happy Saturday bosses and boss chics! One of my favorite boss chics Toya Wright was spotted out with her hubby at the Noir Hotel for a Grey Goose event dressed in green & orange Christian Louboutins, green jeans, an orange clutch, and a flowy button down top. I just love this look! It exudes class and sexiness but in a fun and flirty way.
I wanted to try and recreate her look but with a twist of my own. I am all about flower prints right now and found the perfect shoe to top this off. I wanted to stick to her theme of green because it pairs well with the shoes I picked. Instead of an orange clutch, I chose a more coral color to bring out the flowers in the shoes. The shoes are Jessica Simpson, jeans are from Forever21, and the top is from LoveCulture.com.
Check out the items from my look below and let me know what you think! Are you feeling Toya’s style??
Slim’s shoot with Courtney Yellock styling and makeup done by me
Happy Saturday Bosses and Boss Chics! I told you guys the other day that I had picked up a hobby of styling and doing makeup for local models in my area. Well one of the models who I went to school with hit me up earlier in the week and asked if I could help at her shoot. Of course I said yes because it’s become a fun hobby for me. This time we shot with photographer Courtney Yellock who has done MANY shoots in our area.
When I got there we decided to do a floral, flirty type of outfit, a sexy short pink dress, and then she did a look in a bathing suit in a mirror frame. I won’t post the bathing suit pics, I’ll leave that to her to post to her facebook and whatnot but I did want to share the final picture of her floral outfit which you can see above. Also below I took a close up picture of her makeup as well as a few in the pink dress.
You can check those out below and let us know what you think! Like I said I’m not really a stylist or anything, but I do have fun working with different looks to help these girls out. Hopefully I can keep it going and begin to perfect it as a craft along the way, we’ll see! Don’t forget to check out the other pics below and enjoy your weekend!
