#imjustsayin.....Rihanna is pretty much THAT Bword.

when i first featured this single, i thought it was cool. but i have been listening to it on repeat and can say that this song is SO deep. up late last night, i was able to catch the video for it. CHILLS. i was like WTF! how intense! Rihanna is seriously coming back with a vengence. her vocals arent quite as yodel-ish and annoying...but rather unique and powerful. i think it really took her going thru some ish to bring her to this new level in her artistry. visually? she is impeccable. her videos are never cookie cutter, but this Rated R album is sure to bring about some grand videos. i also peeped the "Wait is Over" video and she was majorly channeling the 1990s era music vids of other R&B sensations (ex. mary j, swv, tlc, jade, total, & xscape). keep the forward progression goign Rih, cuz im starting to dig you.

FAB FILES: Men of GQ


Wale, Kid Cudi, and Drake... some of the hottest men in hip hope right now. GQ recognizes GQ. i definitely dig all three of these gentlemen. Wale's new lp is getting rave reviews all over the web. he has a LARGE fanbase on twitter. hopefully the numbers solidify his presence. Of course, Drizzy is the posterchild for HOT SH!T so it is not a question that he would be featured in this group of new GQ talent. Kid Cudi, the most underrated of the three is def a force to be reckoned with. kudos to all three for the feature.

FAB FILES: Project Ethos

this installment of Fab Files will be a tad different than previous entries. i will be focusing on an event rather than a person. so this past weekend (oct 24th) was the Project Ethos music.art.& fashion show at the House of Blues on Sunset...i had the pleasure of working this event. :-) i can honestly say that i had a blast!!! the weeks leading up to the event weren't as blogworthy but the event itself was pretty darn amazing. for those of you who don't know, i will break down what Project Ethos is. P.E. is a quaterly show that plays hosts to indie artist, designers, & musicians and basically acts as the bridge between them and the industry. it is the job of Team Ethos to invite all of the right contacts...curators, buyers, music label reps, etc etc so that this is one big networking ball of fun. i LOVED the experience...i met way way way cool people (shout out to Jennifer, Tabia, Blean, Dolly, Racine, Brianne, and the rest of the PR team) and enjoyed working the red carpet/escorting buyers to their seats/shooting the breeze with the crowd. because i was working i didn't get to catch the whole show but i will upload the vids i have of the parts i did see. I DEF made it a point to check out Liz Paige's set and when the fashion show was ending i took in the COWGIRL HEAVEN set. AMAZING! check out the vids below that i recorded on my BB!

Liz Paige rockin out!

and here is COWGIRL HEAVEN...i swear they must have booked these models from the campus of an HBCU cuz a few of them had "a walk so mean". unmistakably from an HBCU modeling troupe! #shoutout to FACES modeling troupe on the campus of Florida A&M University!!!

PLAYLIST: BARBIE B**CH!


as some of you may or may not know, Nicki Minaj is the 1st lady of Lil Wayne's Young Money label. i must say, as far as female MCs go...she is def killin the game right now. mainly because Lil Kim is too busy dancing w the stars and getting plastic surgery to worry about her Queen Bee crown. the same crown which has been spray painted pink & is perched slightly askew on top of the perfectly coiffed black & pink tresses of Mizzzz Minaj. with her massive twitter following of wannabe barbies, Nicki is def gonna be a contender in 2010. i rolls with her thick a$$ lol. what can i say? she's BAMB.org think im lying?? check her out in the 5 star chick remix vid i posted below. now ppl who know me, know that i LOVE Trina...but this Barbie beeeeyotch Nicki MURDERED the whole track. :sidenote: Trina's hair was LAID though! lol. nah but real ish....u can fast fwd through the vid to the 3:17 mark when Nicki blaaaazes on the track. she's so cute!

DISASTERS IN DATING: putting him before HIM....


dating is hard. a general statement...yes. but it encompasses so much. why is it hard? how can "hard" be avoided? do relationships HAVE to be hard? etc etc etc. well for me dating, and relationships in general, tend to be hard because until recently, i had yet to find a way to mesh my fleshly life with my spiritual life. this summer i took A LOT of time to myself to figure ME out. figure out my relationships (including friendships) and how i wanted to proceed in them...if in fact i wanted to go forth in life still connected to certain people. this self reflection brought me to dating. i took inventory of my past flings & such with various guys so that i can see where MY mistakes took place. i seen that too often i compromised what i KNEW to be right in exchange for something or someone that was at best, temporary. i settled for "relationships" with guys that weren't anywhere near what i truly desired. i sacrificed my body for stolen moments of ummm "pleasure" *side eye*. basically i was selling myself short. never demanding the respect, treatment, etc that i truly deserved. i wasnt living up to my worth. quite embarrassing to say the least. here i am being constantly praised as this "confident", "beautiful", "intelligent", "inspirational", "unique" young woman... but i wasnt acting as such. i wasnt walking in my WORTH.

simply...it came down to me not putting God or myself first. sure, it's hard to break a habit that has unknowingly been with you for the past 7 years of "adulthood"..but once you acknowledge your own mistakes, that first step is complete. just keeping it real with myself, i knew i had to change my mind in order to change my situation. i had to tell myself "just because i did it before, doesn't mean im obligated to do it again". so when i would receive those late night phone calls or text messages from a guy who EXPECTED something from me simply because we had that type of relationship before, it was easier for me to now ignore that. if our goal for this "relationship" isnt the same, what makes u think u have the privilege to access my body? forget about tapping into my mind, heart, and spirit though right? tapping that ass is of greater concern?

i have learned to accept that although im not perfect in Christ, im striving for it. i refuse to let any guy whose mind is set on "temporary" to keep me from receiving all the blessings God has in store for me. THIS is why i am celibate. THIS is why i don't really mind being single. i know that if i continue to be faithful on this walk with God, He will always look out for the greater good of my heart. he may have been good looking, the sex may have been great, the conversation may have been stimulating...but did he love the Lord? this is what i think about now when i come across a member of the opposite sex. i dont care how much he likes me or how impressive his resume' may be.... love & acknowledge the Lord in all you do, then perhaps i will give you a second glance.

so until my Mr.GodSentHim2Me comes along, i will keep my eyes, heart,mind & spirit focused on the Lord. it will always be HIM before any him.

last note to the ladies: love yourself COMPLETELY. if ur reading this and you're not saved or "that into God"...just know that He loves you even when you dont love yourself enough to make the best decisions concerning your heart.

QUOTABLES....

"my great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done & try to love somebody & have the courage to accept the love in return..." -maya angelou


my favorite word in this quote is courage. without courage it is almost impossible to do anything. i talked about this on twitter last night. "courage is underrated. a lot of us don't have enough of it which is precisely why we tend NOT to be fond of trying new things. it takes courage to change your life...takes courage to love & LET love. don't underestimate or shy away from courage. but rather, embrace it".

i know that as a woman it can be hard to accept good things. especially when that good thing is a GOOD MAN. we've experienced or witnessed the effects of relationships/men gone bad & the reality of something good happening is at times a far-fetched idea. women...okay, perhaps it's just me...so yea Iset myself up for failure by simply not having the courage to LET love. it's hard to just BE.

im praying on it.

but yea blogger babies...today i ask that you incorporate some courage in your life. whether it be the courage to love, the courage to leave/let go, the courage to LEAD, the courage to TRUST, the courage to increase your faith in God, the courage to speak up for yourself, the courage to dream bigger, or perhaps the courage to just BE YOU...increase your courage & decrease your self-doubt.

TWITTER ME THIS: linked 2 perfection

i went to Brandy's twitter page (@4everbrandy) & she had a link to her daughter's little blog up...went to the blog & found this video. "my mom singing in the bathroom"...

if i woke up to this beautiful voice...my everyday would be amazing. i really believe Brandy has one of the most underrated voices in the industry. her music is like that money you find in the pocket of some old jeans. the jeans fit perfectly & you get excited when you remember that 5 bucks is stashed in 'em. with Brandy you KNOW she's dope & you get excited when you hear one of her songs cuz sometimes you forget HOW dope she is.

i seriously can't stop watching this... makes me wanna go put on my Never Say Never cuz it takes me 2 a good&innocent place in my life.





have a blessed day blogger babies....

POETICALLY INCLINED: this is poetic...

An Entrapment

My love, I have tried with all my being
to grasp a form comparable to thine own,
but nothing seems worthy;

I know now why Shakespeare could not
compare his love to a summer’s day.
It would be a crime to denounce the beauty
of such a creature as thee,
to simply cast away the precision
God had placed in forging you.

Each facet of your being
whether it physical or spiritual
is an ensnarement
from which there is no release.
But I do not wish release.
I wish to stay entrapped forever.
With you for all eternity.
Our hearts, always as one.

- Anthony Kolos -





g'morning blogger babies! i woke up this a.m. feeling poetically inclined. i have too many adjectives, verbs, & nouns floating around in my head...can't focus enough to form them into sentences, stanzas, or verses that would surely capture how im feeling at this moment. i feel GOOD. have you ever woke up just feeling GOOD? yes, problems are still present but your mind isn't boggled down by them. it's as if you're floating above the everyday stressors. i want to bask in this feeling. i want to savor this feeling. i kinda wish i could bottle it up and tap into it on the days when i dont wake up feeling like this. hmmm idk, my blogger babies...im enjoying this & it's not even 8am yet.

DISASTERS IN DATING: call me baby....


in this day of twitter, facebook, texting, bbm, skype, etc etc...phone calls are extremely close to being extinct. but i wanna get back to that. i WANT those butterflies when i see your name & # on my caller id. i want you to leave me voicemails so i can save them & listen 2 them when i miss your voice. or whenever i call & u don't answer i want to hear your voicemail greeting before i leave a sweet message...telling you "i miss you babe, call me when you get this"

i want those awkward silences when first getting to know someone. i want those late night convos that i fall asleep to.."you hang up first" :-) i want you to hear the inflection in my voice when i tell you stories from my childhood. i want to hear your laugh. i need to know how you sound when you're sad, happy, or turned on. i need to know when you're being sarcastic or serious. i want to call you "just to say hi" & you'd understand that the phone call was my need to be closer to you for just that one moment in time. miles may separate us, but when you're a PHONE CALL away...the distance doesn't seem THAT bad.


so call me baby.




"Now i just want you to know, how i'm touched deep in my soul just being with you.
And i need you more each day.
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this.
I've got all this poetry now i didn't know then.
I kept inside. guess i had never seen anything beautiful
Till i first saw you asleep at night..."




blogger babies, how do you all feel about long distance relationships? do they work?

DISASTERS IN DATING: scared of lonely



been single for some time now. actually, a LONG time. 3 years to be exact. i must say..it's been one hell of a roller coaster. 3 years ago, i never expected to still be single. but i also wasn't too keen on the idea of being in a relationship. ya see, the R word freaks me out. well i guess, it used to. after being IN love the transition OUT of it sucks something crucial. nights seem to drag on & your days speed by. i was the loneliest lonely person....but no one ever knew. kudos to me for hiding it so well. i WANTED to be that strong young woman i portrayed myself as. i WANTED to be that girl who was secure by herself. thank God my WANTING became my reality. im no longer SCARED OF LONELY i faced the young woman in the mirror...i acknowledged the pain. i dealt with the hurt. i faced myself. i accepted me. now i can be in a crowded room by myself and be okay. i curb the desire to hold a man's hand by simply holding my own. i learned how to be my own comfort; my own joy; my own happiness; my own lover; my own peace of mind.


now that i conquered being alone.
im ready to open myself up for companionship.
now that i let old love rest in peace.
im ready to revive my heart & live.
now that i know my worth, know who i am, & know what i do & dont want...
im ready to love.

the picture above is from MYLTAN... chk out the blog. it's not in english but the artwork is pretty dope.

HAIR WARS: are u a wannabe or a jiggaboo??



every black woman BETTER go see this. it looks like it is going to be so beyond hill air e us. we as women, esp black women, place so much value on our tresses that it has become worldwide knowledge that relationship between a black woman & her hair is a special one. i admit, i LOVE the fact that my hair isn't as ETHNIC as most black women. i LOVE the fact that a good press will have my hair bouncy & shiny without assistance from a perm. but hey, a nice weave/wig or a good perm isn't foreign to my scalp. i LOVE being versatile. i can have long hair, short hair, big hair, curly hair, straight hair, wavy hair...colored hair & braided hair. i dig being a black woman. we can do ANY and EVERY thing with our hair. it shouldn't be looked down upon...it should be celebrated.

the problem arises when folks start thinking a particular grade/texture or length of hair makes the woman attached to it BETTER than the next woman. this is superficial and ignorant. the debate of good vs bad hair is as trivial & pointless as light vs dark skin. the outer you is only temporary....worry about your inner self. perm that out...i mean STRAIGHTEN out the you on the inside.


ladies, i will continue to stress the importance of getting over our petty issues. you can be the most attractive woman, but if your attitude/spirit/personality sucks..u won't get far. bet on that. be a better, more beautiful you by loving yourself & others.

Chris Rock's documentary, GOOD HAIR, is in theaters in October.


inspiration for my title comes from School Daze. the "good & bad hair" song/dance scene. the jiggaboos vs the wannabes. check it out below....

PLAYLIST: every1 can change...


i must say even tho im ANTI-SWIZZ BEATZ...this beat is SICK! and weezy...WTF? that man knows he can MAKE a song. his every word is my favorite part. if this is any indication of what Chris Brown's new music is sounding like..im BEYOND ready for him to make his comeback. i have been Team WhoCares in this whole Rihanna/Chris Brown dramatic saga b/c it's their lives, let 'em live it. both parties care not speak about it so why must the media try to delve so deep into it? ugh!

anywho, back to the new single...TRANSFORM YA...hot hot hot!! message to Chris: there are LOTS of people who support you & wish you the best. take your time & come back FLAWLESS!

message to Weezy: why must you be so quotable? lol

i love his contribution 2 this song.

REAL TALK: is this what happens in 2009?




tears were falling down my face as i watched this... stomach in knots hoping someone would stop this madness. i am so beyond disturbed right now. to think this is the world my nephew has to grow up in... i couldn't even imagine being a friend, let alone a family member, of this boy. beat in the street while tens of people looked on. the screaming in the background of this video is nothing short of chilling. i am disappointed & saddened by the state of our young people.

this touches a very sore spot in me... i have lost TOO many friends...young black men..to violence. for the past six years i have shed too many tears over the caskets of ATLEAST 6 young men. it hurts. futures taken away, lives cut short...unnecessarily. when will this end? the anger. the retaliation. the hatred. the evil. the fighting. the killing. the genocide of our people by our own people.

how can you murder someone you used to play dodge ball with? used to run in the street barefoot with? shoot hoops with? i cant...i just cant. this is tragic.

PLAYLIST: more Drake?

i have a feeling that Drake will be able to release a compilation dvd of "greatest videos" before his OFFICIAL album drops. BUT, im not complaining. esp since this new song was one of my faves from his mixtape.

"i am on a 24 hour champagne diet. spillin while im sippin, i encourage you to try it. im probably just sayin that cuz i dont have 2 buy it..."

haha that 1st verse goes SO hard. it was def quoted in my AIM away msg & FB status earlier this year. haha.


Money to Blow- Drake & Birdman




umm p.s. Birdman, just cuz Drake is on ur label n ish that doesn't entitle u to hop on songs with him whenever the urge hits you. please stay behind the scenes...please & thank you!

MY 2 CENTS: the other woman....sisterhood anyone?

by now im sure the majority of the blog-obsessed society has speculated, heard about, read about, gossiped about, or really just KNOWS about the love triangle that is Alicia Keys, Swizz Beat, & his wife Mashonda. yes, i said WIFE! after 5 years of marriage, their union is being torn apart. granted, there are 3 sides to every story (yours, theirs, & the truth) in this case there are 4... hers, his, the other woman's, & the truth.

this letter that Mashonda wrote to Alicia Keys via twitter hit the blog-o-sphere the other day & has caused quite an uproar. lots of opinions & sides are being taken. me personally? im totally siding with Mashonda. after reading her twetter (twit letter) 2 A.Keys, her class is SO evident. she could have used twitter & blogs to publicly lash out at Swizz & AK (even though there is allegedly a gag order in place) BUT she didn't. she is a WOMAN first & a mother second.

let me back up for a minute before i post the link to the actual letter.... as a young woman (im 24) i have had the pleasure of experiencing, witnessing, & avoiding plenty of train wreck relationships with men & women. i will be the first to admit that i was indeed a "homewrecker" when i was younger. my motto being: "i'll take your boyfriend". i was ruthless. if i wanted him...i was DEF gonna get him. "they aint married, so what!" the problem? if i would have never changed, who's to say i wouldn't have grown up to be that HUSBAND hunter type of chick? thank God for maturity right? i am actually thankful to have been on the receiving end of hurt when it comes to "the other woman". that pain was a wake up call. how could i have ever been so low, selfish, & conniving as to be a participant in causing pain to another woman?

ladies, if you feel you are SO destined to be with this man who is married or in a relationship...let fate take it's course. why rush it? if you're not gonna respect his FULL TIME woman, atleast respect yourself enough to want to be more than his PART TIME lover. one of my greatest pet peeves is an insecure chick. are you that unhappy with yourself that you'd want to piss on someone else's happiness (no matter how "perceived" it may be) just to get your way? people can say what they want about the state of Mashonda & Swizz's marriage but the FACT remains that they are still MARRIED. he wants A.Keys? fine! be with her...after your divorce.

and to the other woman, Alicia Keys...i def lost a lot of respect for her as a woman. i dig her music & her humanitarianism but her blatant disrespect of another woman's marriage has almost totally assassinated her character in my eyes. just how i don't support R.Kelly cuz he's a perv...i wont support A.Keys. my choice. my opinion. now that i have said my peace you can go to NECOLEBITCHIE.COM to read Mashonda's letter. or head over to her twitter @MASHONDALOYAL to check it out. whatever works for you.


in closing, i would really like it if women started having more CARE for each other. living, loving, & being yourself is already hard enough WITHOUT all of the backstabbing, hating, betraying, gossiping, & discouraging. if another woman is shining...let her shine. God blesses those who rejoice when other ppl receive blessings. the more you give (time, love, kind words, money, etc) the more you will receive. let's try sisterhood on for size...see how it feels, im SURE you will love it.

p.s. i am truly thankful for my consistent sister-friends who i can depend on NO MATTER what. if it's for a meal, a prayer, or a shoulder to lean on...having dependable, trustworthy, honest, caring, God fearing, intelligent, motivated, classy women friends is truly priceless. my main main main ones who i would NEVER question? Constance, Onikhol, & Monique... i LOVE you ladies dearly. and to the rest of my friends whom are also solid, THANK YOU! jimmy, ruthi, brandi, blair, kimiya, ashley p, Courtesy Management, etc etc. i have many..wow im THANKFUL 4 that in itself. not many women are blessed to have friendships with other women. kudos friends, kudos!

FAB FILES: bite sized fab...


this 13 year old bite sized fashionista is making waves in the world of fashion blogging. at 12 she started her blog entitled STYLE ROOKIE and has since caught the attention of bloggers & fashion enthusiasts nationwide. Little Miss Tavi even gained access to the EXCLUSIVE front row at some of the premiere shows during this year's New York Fashion week...amazing much? i adore this little girl already! i feel like her quirky yet PERFECT style is totally how i will allow my future daughter to dress. JUST THROW IT ON...& pow...perfection. adoreher.org! she is my UNcool...going against the grain, doing what she loves, & conforming to fit HERSELF. very fab... become a fan! introducing... Tavi Gevinson



*sidenote* the picture above is her during NYFW..got it from her blog...she says that her belt gadget is a pink mesh dress from American Apparel tied around her waist along with a thrift store belt. I'D DIE! my heart melts for this gal!!

I'M OFF THAT: real hood women of ATL....


so i started watching this season of RHOA the episode when Sheree' got in that ridiculous argument with her party planner...i was immediately floored! also...kinda hooked. RHOA is like a terrible car wreck that you HAVE to watch...so i have been watching. but as of late, (the past 2 or 3 episodes) something has been irritating the hell out of me. that something is NeNe Leakes. what in the BREAKING NEWS?? *sidenote: Breaking News= EXTRA EXTRA* this woman is so BEYOND. always one to point the finger at whomever she feels is being messy when she is QUEEN of messy. catty, petty, LOUD, arrogant....EXTRA! all qualities that i despise in women. from what i have heard about the first season, NeNe was the favorite of the bunch b/c she seemed to "keep it real"...she has def strayed from her character then. this season all i see is an ACT. i wanted so badly to love these black women...and i do. Kandi & Lisa are the sane ones that kinda keep me watching. but after last nite's episode w the Kandi/NeNe spat...it's official, NeNe Leakes...I'M OFF THAT!

QUOTABLES....

"embrace the UNcool...become a fan" -me


why do i love this? b/c too often ppl get caught up in everything going on around them...so much so that they forget who they are. they find themselves doing things, saying things, going places, etc just b/c that's what the majority is doing. doing the expected b/c that's what they're so used to doing. what's cool isn't always popular & what's popular isn't always cool.

step outside of your predetermined box.
embrace YOU for a change.
experience what it's like to be a leader.
carve your own path in life & stick to it.


we all have the ability to change...evolve...become better. go against the grain, try being YOU. im sure you'll pretty much LOVE it. i suppose it can be a scary thing to branch out on your own after being under the covering of a group of "friends" 4 so long...take a risk. live YOUR life.

so if u catch me on twitter & facebook saying this, now u know why. there is always a method 2 my madness ;-) so are u ready? embrace your UNcool. do something different!

BONDING THRU EXERCISE: day six

i am feeling the effects of today's workout more than ever. on top of waking up @ 6a to hike to the tippy top of Little Mountain, today was also the 1st day back to school. *rollin eyes* im BEYOND tired.

we did make good time reaching the mid point of the mountain...15 minutes. miss stella decides we should hike all the way to the tower which is basically the highest point of the mountain.... good grief! nevertheless, im proud of me! and MOMster?? well she stuck to the lower trail & did 6 laps which is equal to 3 miles. kudos to her as well.

we're getting there blogger babies...consistency is coming. bear with us!!!

clothe me in hip hop.



as i have established in previous posts...i rolls w my ppl from the Inland Empire & am always happy to oblige a request. my friend @lathonn hit me up abt this clothing line..i took a look and i digs it!

colorful, fun, & fitting to the trends. i love the slogans, i love the accessories featured in the lookbook...it just works. i love how the idea behind this season is to keep it simple...go back to the basics, yet the name of the line is ACRYLICK. acrylic is known to be the substance fake nails are made of. oxymoron much? it works though. sometimes you can find the most necessary things in the most unexpected of places.

REAL TALK: overheard on CNN HLN news


this morning while tuning in to CNN HLN news, i caught one of the correspondents (Jaime, i think her name was) talking about how we don't know how to grieve anymore. she touched on the "celebrities" who have self-medicated themselves instead of turning to the old fashion way of mourning... CRYING! i couldn't agree with her more. these celebrities are dropping like flies & "prescription" drugs seem to be the common denominator in all of these cases.

i understand that the hollyweird life can be very stressful but this is the lifestyle that these ppl chose. i despise when celebrities don't own up to their influence. you're in the limelight...OF COURSE you have ppl looking up to you, live responsibly. how dare the public expect so much of you right? WRONG! i wish these idiots would get a friggin clue....medicating yourself is NOT the answer. get a therapist for Christ's sake! talk about your problems... DEAL with your issues!!!! and when all options have been exhausted... CRY!

p.s "fame is a drug" t-shirt is by Dope Couture & was featured in the Drake/Trey Songz "Successful" video.

PLAYLIST: always & FOREVER...

seems like every Drake video is the "most anticipated video of the year", so here is yet another one.

p.s....fyi... i LOVE that this is such a "feel good" song. even when Drake does wrong, it's still right.




so i totally wish THIS was a full song. totally one of the best intros ever. *sigh* i adore Tremaine.


also, one of my fave songs of the moment... Break Up - Mario, Mr. Hideous, & Sean Garrett.


& last on my playlist of the week... P!NK. i've always been a fan & admired how she transitioned from R&B to pop/rock. LOVES her! her new song Funhouse is pretty darn amazing. the video is crazy, but i dig it.

P!NK- Funhouse

BONDING THRU EXERCISE: the rough side of the mountain....

so this morning miss sheila, the MOMster, & i climbed Little Mountain. *sigh* no joke, that mess was CRUCIAL. i now feel the effects ALL over my body. this mountain is SUPER steep and the first leg of the hike has to be atleast a mile of rocky terrain. & i wouldn't doubt it if it was more than a mile b/c the trek down took forever as well.

i totally felt the burn in my booty and hips & that is precisely where i want to tone up. despite the severity of the hike... i LOVED it.



the view from Little Mountain....amazing

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS: ur just a tool...

Vh1 got it right with this show. i LOVE Tool Academy. i was nervous that the second season would be too watered down, scripted, or just FAKE....but i am pleased with it so far. if you haven't heard of this show...im telling you now, watch it & get addicted. it's about guys who are unsuspectingly entered into a behavior bootcamp by their girlfriends who are fed up with their lying, cheating, outlandish ways. the group therapy sessions are intense...especially when it comes to fidelity, i mean INfidelity.

emotions run high and both the men and women let their tears flow. THIS is what reality television should be like!

watch Tool Academy 2 sundays on VH1 at 9p...check your local listings to be sure.

Twitter Me This: #musicmonday

so i often get tweets from ppl asking me to listen to their music. if i dont know you...then most likely i wont even acknowledge your tweet. rude much? yea, i can be. so today i got 2 tweets from artists asking me to support them...twitter is about networking and such sooo i thought i'd lend a hand. give these twits some shine...it's not hurting me any. plus, whatever feed back they get can be helpful to their career (or lack thereof). also, this will be a new category of blog posts. #musicmonday on twitter. whenever artists, or their ppl, hit me up...i will post them on here.

soooo here goes nothing:

PLAYLIST: friendly recommendation...


my lovely & talented friend Tasha (better known to most FAMU folks as @iLondon_Nicole) hipped me to her cousin XV. i show love & loyalty to my friends when they send me recommendations so of course i had to check him out to see if i was diggin him. clearly, i am since he is making my PLAYLIST. his flow is pretty darn catching... can someone have a charismatic voice? haha, if so... he has it.

Fall Out The Sky is his new single off this year's album Everybody's Nobody. if the trailer for the vid is this entertaining, im sure the actual vid will be dope. check out his website where u can watch the trailer. thecoolniverse.com

XV- Fall Out the Sky (listen HERE)

now i must say, after spending a few hours listening to his music on his MYSPACE PAGE, i have to say my fave song is the title track off his album. EVERYBODY'S NOBODY. very catchy.

DISASTERS IN DATING: sometimes fairytales do exist...

a friend of mine sent me an email last week asking me, "have you seen this before?" my first thought of course leads me to say no. i had never seen the slideshow of this AMAZING proposal. leave it to me to look deeper into the question, "have you seen this before?" what is he really asking have i seen before? love? thoughtfulness? care? respect? friendship? reverence? faith? hope? God?

did i go too deep? doubt it. it is the little things that give you a glimpse of the bigger things that really do exist. because he shared this with me i was able to share this couple's memory. i was able to add this snippet of their lives to my mental Rolodex, store it away, & access it whenever i need a boost of faith in love. cuz i suppose that fairy tales really do exist... sometimes.


REMEMBER THE RITZ. go to that link & i promise you will be inspired.

QUOTABLES...

"if i'm not on your street, it's because i'm on my own corner..." -Bishop Kenneth Wells


this quote comes from an extremely inspiring sermon that my Bishop delivered yesterday at church. when he said it, i was like "wow wow wubbzy" that sums up how i have felt for the majority of this year. being the social person that i am, people have come to expect me to be everywhere, all the time & in the know on it all. SO not the case. it is overwhelming when FRANEMIES want you to give give give so much of yourself, while no one is in turn depositing anything into you. your spirit becomes negative...just like a bank account. i can't give you happy go lucky if there is no happy go lucky in me. i can't give you time if the 24 hrs alotted to me are already predisposed. how can i possibly be in the know on every tom, dick, harry, jane, & eve when i don't actually care what these ppl are doing? how can i focus on my own future successes when the masses are vying for my attention? I CAN'T!!! so before you ask yourself "where is mia?" or "where is jane, eve, harry, tom, & dick?".... look at where you are & focus on that instead. allow me to clean up my corner before i invite you to my hood. and while i'm doing my neighborhood clean up.... how about you sweep your street to keep yourself occupied with your own life. sound like a plan?



my dear blogger babies... DO YOU. BE YOU. LOVE YOU. TRUST YOU. ENCOURAGE YOU. & once you do so, happiness is sure to follow.

FRESH FROCKS: mirror mirror on the dress....


i didn't really tune in to the Emmys or the red carpet pre-show, but when i did i caught a glimpse of this AMAZING dress in the background. it looked like broken pieces of glass strategically & artistically plastered on this garment. the way it caught the light was just breath-taking. SO then i proceeded to channel surf hoping that one of the tv stations would be talking about her. E! never lets me down. Kristin Chenoweth was the mystery gal & her dress... was absolutely gorgeous. grrrr i can't find the designer who made the dress BUT never fear i will have that info ASAP.


cut this out & frame it in my heart cuz i adore this look.



xoxo,
miaMcK


p.s. thanks to my OG twitter friend @opethestylist for the info on Kristin's dress. the designer is Zuhair Murad. Thanks Ope!!! oh yea, check out Ope's BLOG... im sure you will enjoy the HAUTENESS of it!

Twitter Me This: Mechanical Dummy

i dont even know where to start with this situation because im SO annoyed by it. please tell me when will the media let Chris Brown live? omfg! this dude can't even tweet freely without blogs & "franemies" ("friends/fans/enemies" they all go hand in hand in his situation) having a heart attack over every character in his 140 moments of freedom. his stress over this situation is even reflected in his twitter name: @mechanicaldummy. i mean, i may just be reading too deeply into it but that name is SCREAMING for ppl to leave him alone. his every move has become so calculated & scripted that he has become the updated version of Pinocchio. every move scrutinized, every word magnified & blown out of proportion. i would be beyond irritated if i had to censor my tweets. famous or not, twitter is a place where ur supposed to be able to speak freely. well, as freely as possible. to most, twitter is a diary of sorts... 140 characters of sometimes irrational thoughts at any given moment. but damn... it's only entertainment. it's not the Bible. again i will say, LET CHRIS BROWN LIVE!

BONDING THRU EXERCISE: official day four

Labor Day weekend brought more than fun times with the extended family, it also brought a hiatus to our workout routine. we def dropped the ball and got sidetracked with all sorts of household business that needed to be taken care of. this week my mom started working out with her longtime friend Sheila over at Blaire Park here in San Bernardino. She went twice earlier this week and this morning i joined them at 6am for this daunting trail. the park has 2 hills, one is HUGE and the other...not so much. Sheila, Stella, my mom, & i tackled the small trail today which starts with a nice incline to get your heart going and your booty burning then winds, dips, and curves for about a 1/4 mile around. the hilly terrain is a doozy! we power walked the trail 6 times, which equates to about a 3 miles....honeeeeeey!!!! it was no joke. i seriously feel the burn in dang near my whole body, from my calves all up through my abs.

the Blaire Park experience was great because there are a lot of other joggers & walkers that come out in the morning, everyone is friendly & greets each other in passing. it has a community feel to it. 2moro we hit the big hill and im a little nervous but the excitement of toning these thighs definitely outweigh any hesitance.


so yea, we're officially back on board. stay tuned!

Model Behavior: ICON is her name


Chanel Iman.
gorgeous much?
she was the guest judge on the premiere episode of this season of America's Next Top Model. *sidenote...ANTM this season ROX! all of the contestants are 5'7 & under. yay for the petites! almost every girl KILLED their 1st photoshoot last week, which i have never seen on any cycle. this week they dropped the ball a little but im still expecting great things from this season* back to Chanel, she has graced the runways and covers of the most prestigious magazines & fashion houses. not quite 20 years old and already she is SHUTTING ish down in the world of fashion. kudos to her & i hope to see her around for years to come... WITHOUT all the bad press that comes with the territory of celebrity. im rooting for you Chanel!

WATCH WHAT HAPPENS: not so beautiful...


soooo i watched the premiere of The Beautiful Life: TBL last night on the CW and i must say.... underwhelming at best. the acting seemed so contrived, distant, & unbelievable. idk, blogger babies...i just wasn't feeling it. Mischa Barton seemed not to be acting at all. her character's storyline could have been ripped from a page of her own reality. the dialogue was predictable & the characters fell flat...often. i will probably give the show 2 or 3 more episodes of my attention to see if it picks up, but right now it doesn't have my vote. the writers, producers, & directors should have known better than to put a weak show in the line up of CW shows that are carrying major weight (90210, Gossip Girl, & Melrose Place). Beauty will NOT get you far with me and i won't be surprised if the show doesn't last.


p.s. the FASHION on the show wasn't even that hot. you gotta come correct if you want to compete with the flawlessness that is the wardrobe of Gossip Girl.

FAB FILES: domestic diva....


a month or so ago i was indulging in good reads over on the Fly Guy Chronicles website & happened upon a video they posted of Shanel Cooper-Sykes giving her input on why women THINK there are no good men out there. needless to say, her honest & intelligent take on this misconception garnered her a new fan...ME! i made sure to reach out to her on facebook & let her know how much i appreciated her viewpoint and to encourage her to keep bringing the FABULOUSNESS! sometimes women get too caught up in pettiness that we lose sight of the beauty in SISTERHOOD. being a bitch, hating, & gossiping aren't characteristics becoming of REAL women. so the next time you see a woman doing her thang, reach out to her. go the extra distance to compliment her makeup, hair, or outfit. TRUST, it will do wonders for your own self-esteem. ANYWHO, back to the diva at hand... Shanel is also an author (Stilettos in the Kitchen), a motivational speaker/life-coach, a makeup artist, & a domestic goddess. all of these qualities and more earn her a spot in my FAB FILES. enjoy!

my 2 cents...



hair-on, coke cain, ex to see, jagged little pills... anything for a thrill. flashing lights. blonde dikes. groupie clones. living life on MAXIMUM wage. what's the big deal? he ONLY crashed a stage...

before i even watched the VMAs (p.s. i still havent) i seen that twitter was going ape sh-t over this Kanye fiasco. my opinion? SO WHAT!!!! she's a big girl. if it wasn't this, it would have been her falling on stage or being crucified for lip synching or some other teeny bopper issue that plagues the white washed world of Disney-ish pop stars. honestly, i dont even consider her a country singer. carrie underwood? yes, country all the way. Taylor Swift? best buddies with the other Disney broads, she's a pop artist at best.

im not heartless, i can def see how everyone is upset but really...is it cause for Donald Trump to start a boycott on all things Kanye? NO WAY! the way ppl are going at Kanye's head makes them no better than he is. atleast he didn't get up there and tell her how GARBAGE she is (not that i think she's garbage...but yea, she's no Beyonce'). and like i have been saying since jump... Little Swift will be thanking Kanye soon enough.

and for all the Kanye haters... let's start with this: the "Y" goes AFTER the "N". losers. like the VMA host, Russell Brand, said "we're all ppl; these things are silly....calm down, no one died. it's alright". i knew i kinda liked his weird self for a reason.

call me biased...but im Team Kanye all the way. Little Swift will become America's poor little sweetheart, her records will sell, & she will leak some nude pictures of herself. but what will happen to Kanye? he has to apologize (no matter how sincere it may be) & still be crucified as the tantrum throwing "mama's boy" that everyone loves to describe him as. OMG....get used 2 it ppl. Kanye is the MAN and despite his shenanigans & coonish antics, he will STILL be one the most relevant ppl in the entertainment industry.


long live Kanye, his blonde dike, & that damn bottle of Henny!

PLAYLIST: he has the golden touch...




i guess Trey Songz has the golden touch cuz honestly, Amerie is RARELY hot. her 1st album was pretty coo & overall she has had a few songs that i've liked. but generally... i don't think Amerie has that IT factor. she has yet to come across the right mix of factors that give her an edge in the industry.

sooo yea, im trying to decipher if i like this song only b/c Trey is on it... or do i really like it??

i figure the masses will be drawn to it initially b/c Trey is featured, it will have a nice little vid (b/c Trey will be in it) & she will get a little bit of hot press in the end.

kudos Amerie & co for a smart move.

the 'B'est to ever do it...



this woman is absolutely the most amazing performer. naysayers...say what ever you like but numbers & longevity do not lie. Beyonce' WILL go down in history...like MJ. she's timeless...she will continue to grow & conquer. she goes above & BEYONce. i LOVE this performance 1) b/c i always wanted to hear "Sweet Dreams" as a syrupy, smooth ballad. 2) b/c no matter how many times i see "single Ladies" performed..she shows out like it's her first time giving it 2 the masses. 3) her effort is second nature... perfection is flowing in her veins. she's SO 100%.

i adore Beyonce'.

p.s. almost all "official" vids of her performance were "legally" taken down. very hard 2 find 'em.
