It's the Battle Of The Boxes! Birchbox VS Ipsy, Confessions Of A City Girl style!

Let Me Dress You: Bond Girl Edition

Marc B "Go Getter"



I haven't done a "Let Me Dress You" post in so long!

Thanks to EtailPR, I got to rediscover how fun it is! They are hosting a competition featuring Marc B's new handbags (http://bit.ly/W2WIcU) and I decided to enter. The challenge was create a look featuring one bag and ASOS clothing. I went for a "Go Getter" mixed with sexy Bond Girl look ;-)

Did I nail it?!

Japanese Ramen & MAC's Up The Amp (FOTD)


I am in love with the idea of going to Japan, I think I was a geisha in another life. My friend ad I decided to try a ramen noodle shop, here in NYC, on Saturday. I decided I wanted to be pretty that day so I actually did a full face of makeup! The feature was MAC's Up The Amp lipstick. I'm in love, it may just be my favorite color after Ruby Woo.

55th GRAMMY Award Fashion & Beauty Winners


There were a plethora of fashion winners at last night's 55th Grammy Awards, much to my surprise. Although the Grammy's implemented a "dress code", that didn't stop the stars from flexing their fashion muscles on the red carpet. My top 4 of the night were Kelly Rowland, Taylor Swift, Nas, and Carrie Underwood; but there were a lot more winners (and a few No No's).

Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique Independence Day! 39 Years Strong (REBLOG)

Grenada, one of the smallest independent islands in the Caribbean, turns 37 38 39 years old today.
On February 7, 1974, Grenada was granted independence from Great Britain. Grenada consists of the main land, Carriacou, Petite Martinique, and six smaller islands at the southern end of the Grenadines. Known as "The Island of Spice", Grenada is one of the worlds largest exporters of the nutmeg and mace crops.

Not only is Grenada a fantastic island, it is the home of my parents and the place I spent many years growing up. I love this tiny island with all my heart, 37 38 39 years and more to come!

Big up yuh self Grenada! Greenz to the world!

President Obama and Hilary Clinton even sent their congrats in 2012...

About We Care For Haiti
Every year, they conduct several drives a year to assemble kits consisting of donated hygienic care items and ship them out to different cities in Haiti. What started off as making kits for just women and girls has developed into an all encompassing feat, including both sexes young and old. Their goal is to produce 50,000 kits having sent over 17,500 kits so far. A small friends and family project has grown into a national effort.

LOL: Alexander Wang And Bon Qui Qui


I love to laugh and Alexander Wang gave me my daily "ha ha".

In one comedic skit, Anjelah "Bon Qui Qui" Johnson was hired, then fired, by staff at Alexander Wang's Soho store staff. The video features Simon Doonan (who she harasses for stealing) and A$AP Rocky (who she tried to get signed to, song and dance included.) The skit will serve as T by Alexander Wang's spring '13 campaign video.

All I have to say is: Pure. Comedy.
