Dude, it's Kristen!

I know, I know i'm team LC all the way, but Kristen's style has always been something that I loved about her. That and her attitude, but that's only because I see a lot of myself in her. Her style is effortless and just easy brezzy just the way I like to look.

I'm in love with these blowy green tops and with her tan she looks great in it.

Really sad about her and Jay, thought that they would really make it work. However, out of her heartbreak, I found my first date outfit. The boyfriend blazer, plan tank and lace skirt i'm all about that. I think it's a classic look that can work and give off the look that you didn't really try to heard. And that's the way I wanna look during a first date.

Hey guys, who wants to see my Hump-spiration?!?!

So for this of you who saw my previous post about the new Viva Glam campaign then you know that I am so beside my self excited that the shoot will be done by none other then Mr. Dave LaCappella.
He has done so many famous and aww inspiring photos that I decided that I would dedicate a "Hump-spiration" to him and his work!

I mean who can't remember Britney Spears first ever Rolling Stones cover?!?! I remember when that ish dropped and peoples jaws right along with it. I even had the brillant idea to make Christina "half-breed" like Cher! I mean the guy is a genius, just take a look for yourself.

Enjoy and Happy Hump Day!

Kelly Rowland feat. Eve - Like This

Beyonce, REALLY?!?!

Here is a picture of Beyonce arriving to Kelly Rowland's album release party. I really like maxi one shoulder dresses so that's not really the problem with this picture.

If you'll notice the shoulder that isn't covered, the fabric on that side is frayed like a mother! Where are her people, I would never let my friends walk out of the house like this. With an item of clothing that looks like the student that made it just got tired of hemming and thought, "no one will notice". Well, I NOTICED!

Ps. Kelly's new CD has been on repeat for a good week (downloaded). I haven't repeated a song of hers like this since "Like This" that was my jam to get ready with in 2007. Her outfit was super cute and I really loved her makeup, it was simple but still stunning.

What do Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin have in common?!?

Well that's a very good question class and the answer is they are the new faces for MAC's 2012 VIVA Glam campagin. I for one am super excited about this, I really love my Pink Friday (even if I did have to work with it for a while) and i'm sure we can count on Nicki to bring us another pink creation. This time I really want a hot pink, I think thats going to carry over into fall for me.

But what i'm really excited for is Ricky Martin's lippie. I see a nice red from the Puerto Rican singer. Or I could totally be wrong. I still kick myself for not really being all that productive when it came to picking up Fergie's VIVA Glam creation. Everytime my friend wears it, I still cry alittle bit on the inside (I know, dramatic). But i'm not gonna let that happen again.

OH, I forgot the best part, guess who's doing the photoshoot.....David LaChapelle the legend! If your not familiar with his work, heres a little something to show you the genuies that with be capturing all this magic.

hehe, this has to be my favorite picture he's done! I mean Kanye being Kanye and well GAGA is just perfection. This was a photo to promote the concert that was suppose to be between the two of them. I'm still kicking myself that this magic didn't happen.

Nicki made me do it!

So about a few weeks ago I had some time to kill in the mall before I had to be at work and I found myself in Forever 21 (cause lets face it, that's where you go when you wanna waste time) and I came across this shirt.

I kind of liked it but I wasn't in love with it, so what I usually do with items like that is pick it up and walk around the store with it. If, when I get to the register I find that I can't live without it, I buy it, if not...see ya! So I did, I walked around with it and at the end of my trip decided against that and bought a skirt and necklace instead (cause I need another $8.50 skirt like I need a whole in my head) and headed to work.

So today, works been kind of slow so i've been surfing the net. I came
across "Necole" and she has this thing called "Bitchie or Not" where she puts a picture of a celeb. in an outfit and you get to decided if you like it or not. Well, our girl Nicki M. had on these super cute leggings (you know how she loves wearing leggings over real pants) and the cutes shirt ever! The shirt is from the new Brian Lichtenberg for Forever 21 collection.

So Okay! How cute is that!?! I want it, so I went onto the Forever website and searched high and low for this shirt and couldn't find it anywhere. Well, that's because the collection doesn't come out until the 15th of August. So as everyone knows you can't leave Forever 21 without buying something...the same can be said for the website as well. Here are a few things that ended up in my basket.

its CLUELESS! any girl in their 20's knows every word to this movie and was really sad when Brittany Murphy died "rolling with the homies".

i'm feeling a certian way about love right now. So I really like all these at the moment. PS JoJo's Marvin's Room really hitting the spot right now!

OBSESSED with this ring! Sorry for the wear angles, not really sure why it looks like this.

No, No, No My Soul Sista singer's gone

Amy Winehouse has passed away today and I have to say that i'm heartbroken. She was 27 and as we all know has been battling with demons for a while. All of that I feel overshadowed her talented voice.
Everyone knows her cd "Back to Black" but I have to say my favorite cd of hers would have to be "Frank". "Know Me Now", "Stronger Than Me", "Brother", "F**K Me Pumps" and my favorite "Cupid" just to name a few.
Amy, I will play you music all day, you will be missed.

Meet you downstairs in the bar and hurt,
Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt,
You say "what did you do with him today?",
And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray,
'Cause you're my fella, my guy,
Hand me your stella and fly,
By the time I'm out the door,
You tear men down like Roger Moore,

I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would,
I told you I was trouble,
You know that I'm no good,

Upstairs in bed, with my ex boy,
He's in a place, but I can't get joy,
Thinking on you in the final throes,
This is when my buzzer goes,
Run out to meet you, chips and pitta,
You say 'when we married",
'cause you're not bitter,
"There'll be none of him no more,"
I cried for you on the kitchen floor,

I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would,
I told you I was trouble,
You know that I'm no good,

Sweet reunion, Jamaica and Spain,
We're like how we were again,
I'm in the tub, you on the seat,
Lick your lips as I soak my feet,
Then you notice little carpet burn,
My stomach drops and my guts churn,
You shrug and it's the worst,
Who truly stuck the knife in first

I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would
I told you I was trouble,
You know that I'm no good,

I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would
I told you I was trouble,
Yeah, you know that I'm no good.
