Hip-hop fans rejoice!

Not only does it seem like bae Yasiin Bey (the artist formerly known as Mos Def) has completely abandoned the idea of retiring from the industry, but now the legendary lyricist is reuniting with fellow Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli for a 3 nights of Kweli’s 10-show tour this Halloween weekend in California.

Chrisette Michele Announces She’s Been Dropped From Her Label , Suffered A Miscarriage and Was Suicidal

Things have been super mute for Chrisette Michele ever since she performed at Donald Trump’s inaugural festivities.

Well, according to Chrisette herself, she’s been dropped from Capitol Records

She wrote on Instagram,

I complete an entire album and my label decides to walk away from me. Capitol records. I was quiet for a few days… I go into the studio and literally poured out my heart and soul and the label decides to walk away from me? 

In what seems to be an social media vent session she also revealed she had a miscarriage

I dont wish a miscarriage on anyone. Thats sad and a hard pill to swallow.

Butttt Maybe Chrisette and Tina Campbell can work on a project together…since they both have all this newfound free time.

The GLOW Up 7 : Paint The Town

To: All

From: myself and some amazingly dope sistas

Date :  Oct 27

Subject : Paint The Town


During the Fall and Winter months sleek mesh turtlenecks , bodysuits and floral 2 piece sets are an absolute go-to! It’s an easy base to work with, looks effortlessly chic and might I add is pretty flattering. Leather/Pleather bottoms adds the power of the versatility to a look. I love how Kristin and Ms. Bling paired their tops with these hip-hugging bottoms. Anayal8ter and Tina’s looks are conversations makers ,they refused to play it safe….and definitely paid off as. Just look at that sweater dress on Anayal8er thats a statement piece. Tina’s 2 piece set is bold and different , the red bag and heels ties everything together perfectly.

All these Queens are ready to paint the town with style , poise and confidence!

For The Culture : ‘Makeup and Breakup’ Webseries

This webseries hits very close to home with its makeup and breakup scenarios we all know too well. I literally watched it twice in the same week.

On the outside looking in, Brooke (Nicolette Ellis) and Blake(Omar Salmon). appear to be the epitome of #BlackLove until Brooke decides to ditch their two-year relationship for good for her old boyfriend from back on the day.

Being the catch that he is , it doesnt take Blake long to fall for someone new and move on. Once word gets back to Brooke of Blake’s new love interest from her homegirl, she decides to resurface and tries to get her man back. Putting Blake all in his feeling of who to be with.

Also stars Sean Dominic, Emilio Evans, Kamel Goffin,  Karmia Berry, and Olivia Gray

Directed & Written by Eric J. Dickens

Catch up episode one and two of Makeup and Breakup Season 1 below before season 2 starts

After watching the second episode, I was convinced that Makeup and Breakup  is a amazing web series that I would love to see on Nexflix or Hulu. Dickens has created a masterpiece for the culture. We need to see more of this on tv and less reality shows with club fights and twerking.Dickens is bringing back quality shows.

Season 2 begins Nov 1

Eccentric FIND : Suspenders


For years people have slept on suspenders but I lowkey love them. Plus I’d like to think I have a a great eye for fashion.

These high waisted suspenders trend is growing relentless these days, and actually quite practical for Vegas ( now its getting cooler). Covering the oh-so-alluring ankle while flaring provides a fresh look for Fall and Winter. It also means covering not cute but comfortable shoes, which has its pro and cons. So many of my friends and followers along with myself are choosing to wear suspenders this season. 

I copped my suspenders from Touch Dolls for $52 (pictured above) , but Draya got hers for $59 from BDonnas. Dont sleep get your suspenders while you can!

Eccentric FIND : Ruffle Coat

Model Stafani Milano

A lot of us are intriguly in love with this nude ruffle coat style it screams Im HERE and I OWN the scene.

I love the length of the coat worn with the length of the boots or heels. Not too long that it drags the ground either well depending on your height. The soft fabric seemingly are important components to my eye. You want the coat thats not bulky, and moves in motion. A straight sheath does not create quite the same elegant, graceful and sensual effect. This ruffle coat can easily be dressed up or down.

Its the conversation maker for sure! I located 2 boutiques Swankaposh and Snazzy Clozet thats selling it….Now. Only difference is 20 bucks…so no big difference.
