Hola peeps!  I hope that you had a great weekend.  Sorry about the slight hiatus, as life has just been hectic and I am trying to play catch up.  No worries because SNC is here to stay; however I’ve been thinking of revamping the blog…any thoughts or suggestions on what you want to see more or less of?  Do tell.  Anyways back to the post at hand which is Prince on the cover of Essence June 2014 issue!  This man has so much sex appeal with a side of eclectic coolness.  Peep that perfectly round fro…I adore him!  Do you too?

Monday’s Muse—Gwen Stefani


Hola peeps!  I hope that you had a great weekend.  Today’s muse is the über stylish and talented wife, mother and pop star Gwen Stefani.  I have adored her and her style since the days rocking out with No Doubt.  No one can deny that this woman just gets it right every time because she knows what works for her body.  Can you believe that she just had a baby and looks this great?  I need to know her entire workout, skincare and style secrets asap!  Are you feeling Gwen too?  Do tell.

Beautiful Textures Hair Care Presented “HAIR ICON” In Partnership With BET and Cadillac


Hola!  Last week Beautiful Textures Hair Care hosted celebs, models and entertainers to a fab dinner at the Mondrian Soho Hotel for the “Hair Icon” event.  Sponsored by BET and Cadillac it was surely a grand event.  It looks like all that attended had a great time!

“Strength of Nature’s Global Marketing Director, Charlene Dance hosted this incredible evening along with Michaela Angela Davis (Image Activist, BET Editorial Brand Manager). Both women expressed appreciation for those who continue to support the Beautiful Textures brand and all it has to offer for multi-cultural, multi-textured women who refuse to be defined by society’s standards of beauty. An emotionally engaging affair, attendees toasted to celebrating being no-longer monolithic and taking ownership in an event that was created just for them. Encompassing contemporary fusion faire and signature cocktail drinks, the night can only be described as the quintessential celebration of diversity during New York Fashion Week. Highlights of the night included Hair Icon partner, Cadillac, providing luxury vehicles that dropped attendees off at the steps of the Mondrian SoHo in style and attendees all walked away with signature Beautiful Textures Hair Care Swag Bags filled to the brim with the complete line.”

Monday’s Muse—Ari Lennox


Hola!  Happy Memorial Day to you and your family, I hope that you are enjoying it.  Today I’m kickin back browsing blogs and stumbled upon this beauty/fellow curly girl—Ari Lennox on hellobeautiful.com.  Her voice is definitely heaven-sent, it very soulful sounding yet she gives off a young fun vibe.  It is hard to believe that this famed YouTube sensation is only 22 years young!  If you haven’t heard of her then check out her newly released video ‘La La La’ right now:

This second song is called ‘Cascade’ and I love it!  I am a believer because her voice is addictive…I’m forever a fan!

Thoughts…what you think of today’s muse?

Monday’s Muse—Prince
