Welcome…
I’ll jump right in.
Sasha and Malia Obama have been chosen by PEOPLE magazine as two of the World’s Most Influential Teens.

malia & sasha

Good for them, but in true ‘black mama’ fashion First Lady Michelle had plenty to say about the honor. When asked about her daughters being on this prestigious list, Mrs Obama offered some I site. ‘I know WHY they are on the list, I just don’t understand why. They just live here. Neither of them have done anything to gain influence.’ MAN! Sometimes you just can’t win with a ‘black mama’. I wonder if her mom had something to say when she became First Lady?

Nick Cannon says ‘Never say never’ when asked if there is chance for a reconciliation with his estranged soon to be ex-wife Mariah Carey. I think that more people are rooting for this couple to get back together than for the final split. However, there’s two sides to every story. When Carey was informed of her husbands statement she had a different take on the situation. ‘No. No. We have become great friends and plan to co-parent our children as such. We make better friends so there is little chance of a romantic reunion.’

nick & mariah

NICK! C’mon man! How many times do you need to be rejected before you truely let go. Carey went so far as to sell the house that the two shared in California for a cool $30mil without telling Cannon. It is reported that Carey was in the process of purchasing the home when she and Cannon married. Due to the fact that it was her home, Mariah didn’t see reason why she needed to inform her soon to be ex. This ‘thing’ between these two seems to have no end, so I’m sure I’ll be sharing more.

For any fans of the show Good Times, Ben Powers has passed away at the age of 64.

Ben Powers Good Times

Powers I’d best known for his role as ‘Keith’, Thelma’s husband on the popular 70’s sitcom. The details of his death have been kept quiet by the family. They simply released a statement that the actor was found dead in his home. I will write more when I know more about this story. RIP Ben Powers.

Welcome.

Let’s jump right in… Pharrell Williams is working with Missy Elliott on her new album. That’s right! It’s been 10 years since Missy released The Cookbook, her 2005 album release and the wait has been long over due. This announcement is more exciting than Williams saying that he would never wear the ‘Smokey the Bear’ hat in public again.
Pharrell-and-Missy-Elliott
The forthcoming album is being called ‘The Missy Elliott Album’, of course that is subject to change in these early stages of creation. The album will feature Timbaland (of course), Rodney Jerkins, Pharell and Elliott to name the heavy hitting producers and in true Missy style, and entourage of guest appearances. I’ll be sure to keep you up on who those guests are when they are released. We are just glad that Missy is coming back and coming back strong!
Bobbi Kristina Brown is still on life support, but her ‘long suffering’ dad Bobby Brown has left her bed side to go on tour. It has been some 9 weeks since the daughter of legendary singers Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown was found face down in a bathtub in her Atlanta home. Bobbi Kristina has been on life support since late Jan. 31st.
bobby brown bobbi kristina
Doctors performed a tracheotomy on her back in February while she remained in a coma. This procedure is commonly performed on coma patients who have a feeding tube. It is meant to help with infections from the feeding tube. Bobby Brown has long proclaimed that “The Lord will save my daughter!”. He had better hope so because if Bobbi Kristina dies, then all of Whitney’s $80 mil estate will be divided between her mother and siblings. No more showing up at your daughters house for a hand out. And everyone wonders just why the young lady has been on life support SOOOO long…I’m sure there will be lots more about this story. Go get your Bobby Brown tickets.
Actor Laurence Fishburn’s 80 year old mother claims she’s about to be evicted from her $1500 per month rental and she can’t get in touch with her son to help with the financial situation. I didn’t know Fishburn was ‘hiding’ on the set of BLACKISH every week! Sounds to me like he isn’t trying to be found. I wonder what she did to him? A better question…Should children help their parents in times of need even if they have had a sorted past? Good luck Mama Fishburn and next time keep ya mouth shut when your son is worth $20 mil and you don’t got it.
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey’s saga continues. Nick apparently wants $30 mil in the divorce settlement. Mimi, The Elusive Chanteuse has proclaimed,”You will get $12 mil and not a penny more!”. It has been reported that when the couple married back in 2008, that Cannon was only worth $500,000 and Carey was worth over $450 mil. Both have increased their financial standings significantly over the past few years. Cannon is now threatening to write a tell-all novel about the couples life together in order to obtain the money. This book will contain intimate details of not only the couple marriage but sex life.
nick mariah easter
I wonder if they discussed the book at all while they were out egg hunting with the twins Roc and Roe back on Easter?
Kylie Jenner is facing a lot of flack for recent pictures from a photo shoot that where considered ‘black face’. The 17 year old is the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Kylie posted the pictures on Instagram after the shoot with the caption “What I wish I looked like everyday.” Jenner was covered in purple body paint, wearing violet contacts, and pink hair extensions.

The teen posted another statement when she removed the pictures saying “This is black lights, neon lights, and make up people. Let’s calm down!” I’ve been black my whole life and just wonder what country these sparkling, purple, violet eyed black people with the pink hair are from? #fail
I gotta enter one more quick thing journal…Plies gets attacked and bodyslammed off a stage by a fan. That was the headline after a Tallahassee Florida concert on April 3. Actually, after seeing the video, the headline should have read a little bit different. Plies actually not only provoked the young concert goer with repeated slurs, he went so far as to have security bring the young man on to the stage so that he could continue his vocal correction face to face.

FACT: Not everybody from the hood can contain the ‘HOOD’ when somebody starts messing with em. In the middle of Plies verbal assault, the ‘fan’ grabbed him and body slammed him OFF THE STAGE onto the waiting dance floor below. Next time, Plies, talk junk from the safety of the stage.
Later.

How to Shop on a Budget

Georgia’s Juice

 

shopping tips

As a fashion blogger and wardrobe stylist, I have to stay on top of the latest trends and maintain my stylish appearance therefore I’m always in and out of stores looking for a bargain. So today I want to share with you guys three tips on how to shop on a budget.

Bargain Shop: Off price retailers such as Ross, TJ Maxx, and Marshall’s are some of the best places to shop when you’re on the hunt for a bargain. These are the perfect spots to check out when you’re looking for staple pieces to add to your wardrobe because you don’t have to sacrifice quality because of the cost.

Shop off season: Right now is the perfect time to hit the clearance rack at your favorite stores and shop the last of the fall and winter collections. You can snag some really good deals and build your wardrobe for the next fall and winter season.

Shop online: This is one of my personal favorites. The internet offers a plethora of places to shop. You can simply type in what you’re looking for and dozens of options will appear. Sign up for newsletters from your favorite sites for sales, coupon codes, and free shipping offers.
