Hey guys! How’s everyone on this lovely Friday? I hope that everyone is doing great! I had to get my IPhone repaired today and it was a price tag. I’m just glad to have it functioning again, even if it is at the cost of a flat wallet!

I wanted to stop by with some exciting news! I am starting a new segment with a hot, young, fresh and new Florida make up artist by the name of Dameion Lorenzo! Dameion, or Dame as I like to call him, is a dear friend of mine! His brand, Unicorn Faces By Dame is about to take the world by a glitter storm! In this segment, Unicorn Beauty 101, Dameion will be teaching us how to give the perfect beatdown! From finding the right foundation shade to achieving the perfect brow, we will get the scoop on it all! Think of it as DIY for the face!

How it will work:

There will be advice and challenges done in this segment! For the advice part, Dameion will offer his knowledge on certain topics that we may struggle with in the make up and skin department. For example, finding the right skin foundation for full coverage or finding the right BB Cream for oily skin. We will also be happy to take your questions on social media and in the comment section below for a segment topic!

For the challenge portion, Dameion will create a look on himself or a model for me to recreate. Once I have recreated the look, it will be posted on this blog with full instructions as well as mistakes that I may have made and Dame’s advice on how to correct the problem. The teacher will be grading my work, hunny!

I can not wait to bring this to you all! I think that it will be so much fun! Don’t worry if you don’t get the look quite right, Dameion makes house calls!

20131203-212553.jpg

So after looking at Tyler’s recent Instagram photo, I wondered what a date would be like with him? Would he cook for a lady? Would he cut cartwheels with somebody? Would he fold clothes with somebody? Ok, I admit I just want somebody to fold my clothes. Anyways I had a lot of thoughts going through my mind and I figured why not ask you guys if you had the chance to get a date with Ty how would it go?  I want all of my thirsties to use their imagination and tell me how your dream date would be with Mr. Lepley. I know you guys already think of this so why not share it with the world. I just ask to please keep it PG. Nobody wants to hear about how you would get Tyler to lick  mustard between your nasty toes or sip  your nasty bath water. Cmon, he doesn’t even look like a feet guy.

I can’t wait to hear the responses! Also can somebody please come fold my clothes? I will pay you, in gratitude points!

The Fuss: Who is Sharkeisha and What Is It To Me?

LuLuNews, Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion

From local celeb and butt kicker to overnight internet sensation, Sharkeisha has all of the sites jumping in her honor. From Ike Turner Memes to a definition in the dictionary, we have WorldStar HipHop to thank for this madness. Have no idea what I am talking about, no problem, let’s hop in the DeLorean with Micheal J and Christopher Lloyd and travel back to last week.

backtothefuture-delorean

 

The Jist:

sharkeisha_2

Two teenagers by the names of Shay and Sharkeisha, whom were friends up until latter part in the day, met up at what look to be an apartment complex. Sharkeisha confronts Shay about wanting to sleep with her boyfriend. Shay looks away and Sharkeshia sucker punches a inattentive Shay. It doesn’t stop there. She continues to kick the young lady until one of her friends screams for her to stop. Now in case you missed this part, the whole thing was being filmed by a friend of the infamous Sharkeisha.  After being put on Instagram, the video was picked up by WorldStar HipHop and the rest is for history books. Sorry Kanye.

The fight ( It is graphic so be prepared)

Now whats wrong with this whole picture? Well first thing is, besides the fight ,we know nothing about Sharkeisha. Google her name and things associated with that fight or things that are mocking and demeaning to her appears on your screen. What if Sharkeisha was just having a bad day and now she gets known as the “queen of ratchet a#* whoopings” and “miss mollywhop”. The fame this teenager has receive only shows her in a very negative light. The sad part about it is that like most internet stars mimicked for all the wrong reasons, she doesn’t even realize it. I read somewhere that she was glad that her Twitter Following went up from this.  I do not know how true that statement is.

Poor Shay

What made me think about this post was that I used the Sharkeisha hashtag, for views. I ran into some activist and they made me think. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always thought that Sharkeisha did Shay wrong by waiting until she turned away to hit her. If you are going to fight, at least make sure the person is facing you but that’s another topic.  It was a sad situation. I thought using the hashtag would get more views from a wide audience but was I promoting the violence? That’s when I had to stop and re-evaluate my own thinking. I am the same person who would turn off Black Girls Rock to watch Real Housewives of Atlanta but at the same time I do promote those that are trying to make a difference in the community. Can I have it both ways?

What are your thoughts on the Sharkeisha craze? In fact how do you guys feel about how we are portrayed in the media period? I want to know more about her as a person. Am I the only one?  Let’s chat. If you feel the need to go in on me for this post, that’s fine too!

Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday: Money It’s Gotta Be The Shoes?

Benny Biceps Thirsty Tuesday

Before I jump in to quinching the thirst, can we talk about how cold it is! Oh goodness. It’s raining and 36 degrees here in South Carolina. So who needs Tyler and the biceps to come keep them warm, this girl! Shoot I’d settle for an extra heater if you guys have one, lolx. Anyways back on to the topic at hand. Today to honor Mr. Lepley, I want to talk about his footwork.  We are going to play a game called “Money it’s gotta be the shoes!” I want everyone to take a guess at what  Tyler’s favorite brand of sneaker is.

20131119-101606.jpg

What’s going to make this game even more grand is the fact that I have no idea what the answer is! I am guessing just like you guys. I think it’s going to be fun to see what you guys come up with!

My guess is: The Jordan Carmine 6. I guess because I have a pair of 6’s similar to these.

These are the pair that I have:

How to purchase.

You have up to three options for purchase. If you live in the upstate South Carolina area and would like to deliver and/ or pick up your item I will take cash. You have to actually appear in physical form, lolx. My other two options are google wallet and etsy!

Google Wallet

I do not list all of my items on Etsy because of fees. I have two special listings for the items that you see on Instagram but they are not listed on Etsy. The listings are “The Closet” and “Social Media Items“. If you look at the pictures on these listings then you will see that they are from the Instagram page. If an item is no longer available, I will remove the picture from Instagram. If you have an item that is priced more than the two listings, then I will list the item on Etsy for you as a reserved item. In the title your name will be included. This will make your price of your item increase by 1.20.
