Gucci Now Has A Cosmetic Line

Gucci Luxurious Moisture Rich Lipstick-in Tiger Lily

Yup. Gucci has fallen in line and now has a cosmetics line that just launched this month. I personally do not currently own any Gucci item. I think I've had a perfume in the past, but I can't say for sure. Anyway, they have makeup now. I haven't seen the makeup in person, but I went through their eye shadows and lipsticks, and I picked out my favorite colors. By the way, I'm currently having a thing with lipsticks. I used to be a lip gloss girl, but oh, how the tides have turned. The lipstick Continue Reading

Monica-Lewinsky-at-Forbes-30-Under-30-Seminar

Nah Uh. Nope. No. Net. Nahīṁ.  Mba. Monica Lewinsky who has been silent since the scandal 16 years ago (except her recent feature in Vanity Fair, which of course, I also blogged about). She was at the 30 Under 30 Summit held at Forbes in Philadelphia two days ago giving her first speech, and of all things to talk about, she chose cyber-bullying because according to her, she was Patient Zero, the first victim of cyber-bullying. Let's talk about some of her talking points. 1.  "Sixteen Continue Reading

This is breaking news. I don't think there's a picture of him yet. Dominic Adesanya, 23, jumped over the White House fence.

Officials said around 7:15 p.m., 23-year-old Dominic Adesanya climbed the fence on the North Lawn and got about 20 yards past it when he was taken down by Continue Reading

What Does Isaac Mizrahi Have To Do With BAND-AID® BRAND?

BAND-AID-BRAND-4

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BAND-AID® Brand. All opinions are 100% mine. When I think of Isaac Mizrahi, I think of clothes and shoes and all things fashionable and stylish. And when I think of BAND-AID® BRAND, I think of cuts and scrapes. That was then. Now, they're both interchangeable. Thanks to Isaac Mizrahi's collaboration with BAND-AID® BRAND, I will never think of BAND-AID® BRAND adhesive bandages the same way again. These fashionable bandages hit the shelves Continue Reading

I can't even put a post for each one. So in no particular order, here are the recent divorces and separations that I know of/remember. 1.  Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey: Continue Reading

Remember when I went to Faith's wedding? Of course, you remember, the post went up only yesterday. Thank you for the compliments on the hair. I have received so many compliments on and offline.

Ha! Okay, so my hair was done via crochet braiding, and it was done by my sister-in-law, Nyambe. She's Continue Reading

This past weekend, I attended Faith's wedding. Faith is a friend that I met in church some years ago, and she's just really sweet. I like her a lot cause my spirit agrees with her.

Anyway, Faith got married to her love, and Igwe and I were there to witness it. We missed the ceremony, but we made the Continue Reading
