mgid-uma-image-vh1-2

The Soul Train Awards aired this evening and I must say — Erykah Badu is the best awards show host, ever!

With that being said, it wasn’t even 10 minutes into her hosting before she had us laughing out loud.

One moment in particular made us laugh SO hard — and it definitely was a fact so she wasnt lying lol . Erykah told the audience that she banned rappers from the ceremony, but then she got a “call” from Iggy Azalea.

“No, you can come! What you’re doing is definitely NOT rap,” Erykah told “Iggy” over the phone.

It’s hard to not overeat during the holiday season because there are so many good things, like sugary cookies, dressing , mac n cheese , and yams.

Start by Understanding Your Body

You need to understand your body and how it works. When you eat the right foods and exercise like you should, then your body will have no choice but to burn fat stores. You cannot just tackle one thing: exercise or diet and expect to lose all of those holiday pounds. Instead, when you understand your body, you will see why it is important to work on both healthy foods and a quality exercise plan.

Keep Track of What You Are Eating

It’s a good idea to know what you are eating. “Being aware of what you eat can serve as an effective reminder of which foods to avoid as you work on dropping holiday pounds.” (Black, 2010) By knowing what you are eating, you can actually determine what you need to adjust in your diet to be healthier. You may be consuming quite a few empty calories without even realizing it. In fact, if you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle, it’s a good idea to keep a food and exercise journal throughout the year.

Hit the Exercise Plan…Hard

Exercise, and the right kind of exercise, is key to losing weight fast. Weight training will be the most successful option, but most people think of cardio instead. However, when you use weights, you will actually be building muscle, dropping pounds, and making yourself healthier overall.  When you use the right exercise program that involves weight training, you will actually be able to burn as many calories as you would if you ran on a treadmill.

Structure and Repetition Will Help

When you face losing weight and you want to drop the pounds quickly, you need to understand the importance of structure and repetition. By doing the right number of reps in each type of weight training, you will be able to tax your muscles as much as you should without risking injury.

Structure is important in any exercise and weight loss regime. You need to build a plan and stick to it. This holds true for the exercise itself as well as your dietary plan. When you have a structured routine for your daily plan, you will be able to stick with it without accidentally slacking off.

Finally, if you want to lose weight fast, you should never starve yourself. You may think that by skipping meals, you can drop the pounds, but you will actually be sabotaging yourself. Your body will start slowing down and burning muscle instead of fat. Make sure you are eating a healthy diet to see the best results. Those holiday pounds don’t have to stay on throughout the year. With the right plan, you can lose them fast!

The all black everything trend is a look loved by celebrities and… Well… everybody. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t need to be boring or bland. The all black everything look can be fun, sophisticated, and polished. This guide will help you to pull it off!

Mix Different Textures

12015044_992562304099523_2568882336126395127_o

textures

Mixing different textures is a must if you want this look to work. If you don’t mix fabrics and textures, your all black outfit will look too ‘Boring ’. You’ll look boring and more than likely swamped in fabric. Make an effort to include multiple textures in your outfits and they’ll look so much better. You’ll add depth and there’s no way you can look boring.

 

Make Sure the Shapes Suit Your Body

The shapes you wear should always suit your body if you want the best results from your outfit. Know your body type and the shapes that look right on you so you can feel and look amazing in your all black outfit. Black is slimming anyway, but wearing shapes that suit you can completely change your look!

 

Don’t Drown Yourself

Don’t drown yourself in fabric. If you’re not a confident person, it can be tempting to cover up. But don’t. If you’re going to wear baggy trousers, wear a tighter top and vice versa. Anything too baggy will make you look bigger than you are, whether it’s all black or not. Anything too tight and you might look a little too much.

 

Add a Small Pop of Color

If you want, you can add a small pop of color to make your outfit more interesting. You can do this with your nails, lipstick, shoes, bag, or a mixture. Don’t be afraid to go a little bolder with the smaller details to make a big impact!

 

Add Metallics

Metallics will glam up any outfit and make you look amazing. You can find things like this in almost any accessories store. Metallic accessories have an element of luxury about them that you should make the most of if you’re going out!

If you’re ever in doubt about what to do, you can’t go wrong with an all black sporty outfit. This is a really easy way to mix textures too! For instance, a pair of leather look shorts and mesh top. It’s a very simple and comfortable way to get that cool all black look.

 

Use these tips next time you want to rock the all black everything trend and you’ll get it spot on. It can look amazing on anybody, and is perfect for most occasions! Have fun with it and remember to exude confidence.

Tell ‘Em Girl! Solange Claps Back

1446490579_488292309_solange-julez-467

It’s no secret that Solange is understandingly protective over her little boy Julez.

On Friday, Solange shared an cool yet fly photo of her 11-year-old son all dressed up in his LL Cool J costume for Halloween.

Screenshot_2015-11-02-23-05-53-1

One rude commenter, @alexandriaaaf felt the need to leave a disrepectful comment about Julez, writing:

“So cute but at the same time he ugly.”

You already know Solange wasn’t about to let that negativity slide. She got the commenter RIGHT together the GROWN WOMAN way.

She responded:

“@alexandriaaaf Jussst as I thought it was safe to share pictures again, a young’n like you decides to use her time to spread ugliness,” she began. “I don’t fault you, I can only imagine why you would feel the need to say such things, but thanks again for being a reminder that out of all the love and wonderful energy shared, that when I open up a space for an innocent beautiful being like my boy to be criticized and judged, that I WILL most likely respond, and that he receives enough love and celebration  at home that it’s just not worth it to go down this road. I hope that this really resonates with you and you make better decisions in the future towards how you use your words towards innocent children. And @ro.rxd get ya friend because this could have truly gone south if I was in the wrong mood.”

You really have to be some type of pathetic to leave rude comments about someone’s child.
