Why the #BeyonceThinkPieces hashtag is brilliant

We all love Beyonce. Even when you hate her, it all stems from love. We applaud her for her talent and diligence. After the surprise self-titled album she so graciously bestowed upon us this past Friday, she deserves an extra star on her crown. Bless you, angel.

5 movies to watch on labor day

There’s no better way to spend this holiday than by vegging out and watching a few good flicks.

In honor of hard-working individuals everywhere, here are five must-see movies.

The Butler – If you overlook how creepy Forest Whitaker looks, it really is a superb film. And Oprah did an AWESOME job.

I always forget to take pics on cute days

In an effort to remember to take pictures, I wore a cute outfit everyday this week. Except, I only remembered to take pics once -___-. My coworker and I took a break from work to snap a few earlier this week.

Side bar, this chic is ALWAYS cute and trendy. I need to make her my model, lol.

Shine your light

timthumb

For the longest time, I gave not even an iota of care about what anyone thought of me. But as of late, I’ve mulled and mulled over making certain decisions because I was unsure of what other people would think.

Will I be judged for posting this picture? Is someone going to think I’m conceited? Will they think I’m overly ambitious for pursuing this project? Will what I put out be accepted?

New flash: they probably already think all of the above.

The beauty of life and growth is not allowing what other people think to cripple you. What other people think of you should not stop you from being your genuine self!

One of the most liberating things you can do is accept yourself for who you are at the present moment. Your no college degree having, gap-toothed, over-analytical, wide-hipped, over zealous self. Because when you have love of SELF, the outside forces cannot destroy you.

Sharing your light is what matters. If you’re too concerned with the thoughts of others, how can you share your light? How others perceive you is not your business or your reality.

Random but, I just felt like sharing.

Jazz in the park

Gretchen Parlato

Before the jazz festival this past weekend, I’d never heard of this woman. All of my friends were excited to see her perform and here I was embarrassed because I should have known who she is! I love jazz. So anyway, I’ve been listening to some of her music since then and I’m in love with her voice. Her sound is like a tranquil symphonic wonderland. Super smooth and tender. And what she does with her mouth (no homo)…

Now that I think about it, her voice reminds me of Amel Larrieux’s. If they did a duet…man!

Nailed it

On any given day, my favorite nail color would be nude. I want to say I have over 40 bottles of polish but I rarely wear them. My patience has greatly waned these days. Gone are the times when I would stay at home on a Friday night and give my nails some TLC like I used to. But I love buying polish.

One of my most recent purchases is No Place Like Chrome by Essie. Only once I get back into my groove will I attempt to add designs.

Weekend at a glance: final four #60

Okay so I only found out what Final Four was about a week ago. And no, I didn’t attend any of the free concerts. They weren’t worth the traffic that I knew I’d have to face downtown.

Friday

My good friend Christopher was visiting for the weekend. I suggested we have dinner at a popular Ethiopian restaurant called Desta. Neither of us had ever been but we’ve heard great reviews. Let me tell you, it is all the hype. I ordered the Fish tibs with collards and cabbage. Very friendly wait staff and super yummy food. I seriously need to go back once a month.
