{Fab Five} Laughing Thru Tears...

These past few winter months have been so emotionally & physically brutal on me. Besides the weather, there was being sick for weeks at a time, my granddaddy passing and the anniversary of losing my brownie.  Things have definitely been challenging to say the least.

So I have been very much in need of laughter and smiling and thankfully the internet gawds have shined a little light on my darkness and brought these nuggets into my world.

I seriously teared up but in a good way with this one...its so sweet. I love this song. Some days I listen to it on repeat just to keep my spirits up. I love what he says at the end...


This Stylelite post lead me to the Miserable Men instagram account that has pictures of men out shopping with women.

Hump Day {Fun}

I will be honest, I really didn't know who Stephen Merchant was when Jimmy Fallon was interviewing him the other night but he was funny and had a cute English accent, so I continued to watch it. 

But he is now my obsession!

Jimmy does a lot of fun features and the lip sync sing off is one of the best and
this one was AWESOME!

Stephen broke out with Dj Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince's Boom! Shake The Room
and I practically jumped up out of the bed!!

Jimmy did a couple of cool songs but his guests definitely owned this one.

To wrap it up with a BANG, Joseph Gordon Levitt did Nicki Minaj's Super Bass
and shook his rump in true Minaj style and it was spot on and so WICKED!



The whole segment was so fun and it is a MUST SEE!

Happy Hump day!

{Video} Review: My Second RocksBox {Jewelry} Box

In my effort to be a better blogger, I am trying to get things posted to the blog sooner. I go to a lot of events and have a lot of products, etc that I want to share with you ladies but time is a tricky thing in my world sometimes, well most of the time and a lot of times I just never get around to doing it.

But I am working on it.

SOoooo...I just got my latest RocksBox in the mail yesterday and waited to open it so that I could share doing so with you on this video!


Here is a better look at the pieces.

{Music} What I am Currently Thumpin'!

I caught a bit of The Voice finale the other night and my girl Cher 
was on singing her latest single Woman's World and I was all in!

It is my new JAM!

Check that wild hair!

I love that at 67 years old she still seems to not give 2 damns about what people think! 

All the women in the world 
Stand up come together now 
This is a woman's world 
Everybody in the club 
Stand up come together now 
This is a woman's world 
 Tell the truth 
This is a woman's world 
Tell the truth 
This is a woman's world


Tell (and own) the TRUTH ladies!!

{Fab Five} Immersing Myself in {Life}...

After Monday, I am not really up to being social or even talking period, so I have just been keeping a low profile and trying to immerse myself in things that are happy and make me smile and/or laugh...

Here are few...

Is Prince not EVERYTHING on this cover? Sorry Jenny Lo...


{fun} Favorite Holiday Movies

One of the best things about this time of year is the holiday movies,
from the classics to the corniest.

I have been living and breathing the hallmark channel & lifetime movies 
and playing some of my DVD's over and over...

They just really put me in the holiday spirit!

Here are a few of many of my favorite holiday movies.

The Perfect Holiday.
A great cast, music and more.

{fab five} loving now...movies, food & more

i am up early this sunday...gonna hit up Randolph Market then make my way back home to be domestic...lots of organizing, digging out some of my winter things...

last weekend i was so glad to just chill a bit and squeeze in a little movie time, so i
turned to netflix instant watch and ended up watching two very different yet
both very enjoyable movies...

first i watched exit strategy...it's about a guy who ends up moving in 
with his girlfriend after getting evicted and it is laugh out loud 
funny and at times just plain insane...perfect for a good release...

{fun} Windy City Live "Flatter That Full Figure" Recap

Major shout out to the folks at eloquii by The Limited for asking me to model for them on Windy City Live Flatter That Full Figure segment.

I had a blast!

Aleah of Aleah Connect, the stylist for the segment wanted me in pants, so we took a trip to the eloquii shop in shop here at the Water Tower and tried on lots of pieces but chose these fab print pants, matching jacket and gorgeous fuchsia cutout blouse.

I really love the print on the pants and jacket and I actually wore them last night to an event with a polka dot top! (post to come)

Anyway, we had a 6:20am call time. I arrived at the Windy City Live studio and the fun began.  Once we got into hair & makeup, the morning just flew by.

I was very pleased that they selected so much color and patterns and styles to feature. It really gave a variety of options that can beincorporated into a full figured woman's wardrobe. Aleah also gave a lot of tips on fit and fabric and other things to look for when dressing a curvy body (and there are more on her website here).

I didn't get to take a lot of pics, mainly just some blurry ones with my phone, which can be found on my facebook page.

They wanted me in big hair...I think they achieved their objective and lots of colorful makeup.

{fun} Windy City Live "Flatter That Full Figure"

In case you missed it, here is the video from yesterday's Windy City Live "Flatter That Full Figure" segment that a bunch of us local girls modeled for.



It was such a fun experience. I will recap everything soon!

{Fab Five} link love...

One of my favorite bloggers, Vahni has been documenting her experience with The Whole30 program and I am thisss close to doing it myself.

Jen shows how she has maximized her small space with an ikea wardrobe and I am glad that she did because I have been looking at these pieces. I need extra storage and I think they will go well with my desk and it is always good to see how they work in real settings.

{beauty} winter skin love...


i take incredibly long baths all year round but especially in the winter.

there is just something about immersing myself in water for hours that comforts and relaxes me.

so of course considering that our skin was not made to be waterlogged for hours at a time, i have to really pay extra attention to keeping moisturized and exfoliated.

one of my 2012 blog goals is to do more video blogging and i am geeked to say that i have bit that ball and i am off and running with it.

check out my first vlog of the year!

i share three of my favorite winter skin care products, 
one of which i am giving away below



it's the weekend baby...

summer will soon be a distant memory so make the most of these last days!

starfish...starfish..bling..bling...

i love this necklace!



but i just wanted to share it and my excitement for the weekend!

it's Pride here in Chicago and it is always so chock full of fun, dancing and craziness and i can't wait!

i watched this fan crowd sourced video of Michael Jackson's Behind the Mask and while it made me tear up a bit, it also made me smile...
it's incredible that he was so loved...




i hope you have fun things planned and that you will have a
fabulous weekend!

Jill Scott...like you have never heard her

chatting up sex (being dickmatized - her word not mine!!!), being abstinent, being pissed off, losing weight and more with perez hilton

i love it!

and that dress is speaking to me big time!

TGIF...just breathe..

thankful for another day...wishing you the most fantastic of fridays!!!
