Hola! Here is why you need to pick up the Dec 2013/Jan 2014 issue of Ladies Home Journal magazine—First Lady Michelle Obama. I mean she just exudes elegance and grace. Now this is a cover done right (take note LUCKY–no shade) because it is simply beautiful!
I must also add that LHJ has really step up their game in the mag world.. Last month I had the opportunity to attend their Get Social conference which was very informative. Don’t sleep on them and go pick up the issue. I definitely plan to. Keep up the good work LHJ!

Hola peeps! I don’t mean to brag or boast but today is MY BIRTHDAY! Normally I don’t make a big deal out of it but I must thank GOD for another year of life! There has been some highs and lows; yet I’m grateful and looking forward to many more years!
This past weekend I had a pre-celebration with my beau. He surprised me with a fab dinner and a Broadway musical–After Midnight. It is set in Harlem in the 1930s–the jazz age of the Cotton Club and more! The fab Fantasia and talented Dule Hill were the guest stars; Wynton Marsalis was the artistic director for Jazz at the Lincoln Center (the orchestra). I cannot leave out the wonderful job Isabel Toledo did on the costumes, they were simply gorgeous. Ok that’s it I won’t give it all away but trust me it is a MUST see!
Well that’s all for now, I’m off to enjoy my official birthday! Enjoy your day!
Hola! The gorgeous Kelly Rowland covers the November issue of FASHIZBLACK magazine. The issue hits the stands on Nov. 8th in France and two weeks later in the US and UK. Thoughts? Do tell.

Hola! There are no words for this cover of Africa Forbes Life but gorgeous. This is their very first issue and the beautiful model Alek Wek brings it! I mean flawless skin, perfect bone structure and lucscious features. Who say’s black isn’t beautiful? Hummmm they lied! BOSS!! Thoughts?
Hola peeps! One of my fave dapper dudes covers the November 2013 issue of Vanity Fair, I’m talking about none other than Jay-Z. People tend to speculate a great deal about him, his career and marriage but all I care about is his strive, perseverance, and dedication to his craft. I respect the fact that he was able to go from the mean streets of Brooklyn, to world-renowned hip hop artist and now a savvy businessman. How could anyone hate on that, right?
In this issue he talks about how much Blue Ivy digs his music, how he wooed Beyoncé and his undying love of the rap game after all these years. Check it all out here. Enjoy!

Hola! All eyes were glued to the 65th Emmy Awards last night, however the red carpet is what caught my eye. Actually it was a the color blue, it seems like everyone was wearing it. There were slight variations in deeper tones and different dress silhouettes but everyone looked fab! Take a peek below at the celebs that are on my Blue Best Dressed List and let me know your thoughts. Enjoy!

Hola! I saw this circulating all over the web this morning and had to share. Doesn’t Oprah look fab on the cover her magazine? She is pulling off the big hair and smile all with a bit of sass! I must admit I’ve never purchased O magazine but since this issue talks about HAIR I just might. Will you be picking it up? Do tell.
Hola! Did you watch the BET Awards on Sunday night? Well I watched some of it, however I stumbled upon this pic of Toccara Jones (former ANTM contestant) looking uber-cute in the BET Awards Radio Remote Room. She showed off her svelte body in a off-white Hervé Léger Scalloped Bandage Mini Dress. Everything about this look is on point—bronzed skin, toned body and gorgeous smile! My only gripe is the shoes, I just wish another pair was selected. Nonetheless that takes nothing away from her fabulousness…go Toccara! Do you like?
Hola peeps! Just checking in to share Brooklyn Summer 2013 magazine with one of our fave chicas on the cover—Solange. The hair, face and style is just perfect. Don’t you agree?
Hola! Happy hump day to you all! I’ve said it before and I will say it again Solange was born to model, she gives face even when she isn’t trying to! No discredit to her musical side but this is her true calling. She was stunting over at the Cannes Film Festival a few days ago in an all white Stéphane Rolland jumpsuit. One word–flawless! Do you agree?
