A New Hermes Clutch? Well I Don’t Mind If I Do…

This will probably be the shortest blog post of all time because words cannot express how ridiculously amazing the Hermes Jige clutches are. I’m like a kid in an exorbitantly priced candy store and I can’t deal. Although the Jige clutch has been around for quite some time, Hermes cleverly released a ton of new hues just in time for spring. That said, all I need is an extra $4,250 and I’ll be set for the season. Why does the universe insist on playing these sick games with my bank account??!!

I Gots a Big Gurl Job Now…

Good morning Blog Land…is anyone alive out there? I know its been a while since I’ve written a freshy, so I’ve decided to update everyone on my newfound responsibilities in life — please reference the photo above. If you’ve never seen the movie or have no idea who Miz Anna Wintour is then we simply cannot be friends. So yeah, this is my life now…running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to pave my way [again] in the fashion PR world. Sounds glam, doesn’t it? I just got back from LA for Oscar week and I’m pretty sure I came back as a celebrity publicist thanks to my “celebrity” boss. Please note that I may or may not be in the process of pitching a show about the devil incarnate our office to Bravo.

I’m not gonna lie, this whole “career” thing is serious work (no pun intended) and I’m not so sure I fully agree with the whole Feminist Movement anymore. What were those crazy, braless bitches thinking? Yeah it’s all fun and games when you’re 20, but gurlfriend is getting to the point where my Loubs are beginning to cause back aches and such. Not good. Anyway, I’ll relish in the perks and celebrity run-ins until such a time as I can be my own boss. Til’ then, I’ll be updating you bitches on my status more than Facebook. Don’t you feel special?

Next Stop: The Lone Star State

Big things going on right now. I just finished packing (loathe), but more importantly I’m super excited for my holiday getaway to Texas mañana. YEAH GURRRRL!!  I’ve spent almost every Christmas since birth up North, so I can already see this being a bit of a culture shock. Thankfully, the bf has repeatedly reassured me that the atmosphere couldn’t be more laid back. As long as there’s bbq and sweet tea involved, I should be good to go. Anywho, I’ll be MIA tomorrow — see ya’ll in a few days! XOXO

My Winter Skin Care Essentials

A lot of people ask me about my overall skin care routine. I don’t wear much makeup, so I’m convinced it has to do with my eating habits and beauty routine. I’m no dermatologist, but it begins with watching what you eat. I can’t even tell you how much I notice a difference in my skin if I don’t drink enough water (or consume too much alcohol for that matter) and eat greasy crap. Sadly, chocolate is also a huge no-no for my skin. Sucks for me. Anyway, once you’ve got that covered you have to consider the ingredients in your products, as well as the weather conditions. It’s important to switch up your essential skin care products every season depending on where you live.

Since it’s getting a little chilly down here in South Florida, I’ve opted to try Burt’s Bees Orange Essential Facial Cleanser ($8). It’s 100% natural — you can’t beat that. The cleanser is absolutely amazing!! It literally smells like you’ve just washed your face with fresh oranges. The result is super soft skin afterward. I used to think washing my face with an oil-based cleanser would be counterproductive, but in fact it helped improve my combination dry/oily skin.

I like to follow with the Radiance Day Lotion SPF 15 ($18). It’s not oily, doesn’t clog my pores and it smells fantastic. Not to mention I’m completely protected from harmful UV rays. The key ingredient in this moisturizer is royal jelly, which is made of nectar, pollen, flower parts, vitamins, minerals, and other natural ingredients. It’s a very precious, mysterious substance that honeybees produce for the queen bee. Anything produced for the HBIC is fine by me.

Of course, I also exfoliate a few times a week and use a hydrating mask twice a week. It’s also important to use eye cream both day and night, as well as night cream that’s designed to moisturize your face (anything with SPF isn’t going to cut it because it doesn’t allow your skin to breathe at night).

Hope this helps those of you who asked me to do a post on beauty — enjoy my little honeycombs.

WHO YOU FINNA TRY?!?

I’m in such a giddy mood today, hence this random video I came across that made me LOL like 5 times in a row. I love how she antagonizes the dude trying to watch TV then gets slapped in the face with flour. No comment about why some dude happened to have a pot of flour handy. I’m guessing this wasn’t the first time gurlfriend rocked out to this song that I’ve never heard before. And finally, I love her reaction at the end…to which she can only mutter the words “Maaaaa.” Was her mom filming? Is this a dentist/doctor’s office? Looks like she has scrubs on, but then again that could be her idea of style. I’m perplexed, so I just keep replaying the video for pure entertainment.

I’m Deeply Disturbed by This Givenchy Ad

 

Listen, I’m no Adriana Lima but are they serious with this guy? I can’t even look at the ad without thinking about that creepy movie Powder. I was legit afraid of that guy and now my nightmares will def be haunted by this dude for a while. Although, I kinda feel bad about being so critical of Stephen Thompson, the albino model cast for the Spring 2011 Givenchy ad campaigns. I get the whole “forward thinking” logic and the statement Riccardo Tisci is evidently trying to make…but is it so wrong that I actually enjoy getting my usual fill of beautiful, perfectly chiseled gay male models in high fashion ads? To take that away from me is pretty rude, Mr. Tisci. I’m team Dolce on this one. But I swear, if they trying pulling any Marc Jacobs shit on me it’s OVER.

Do a Stint in Rehab, Become an Instant Smokeshow

Daaaaamn, Lilo! Rehab did her all sorts of good, didn’t it? I’ve never doubted Lindsay’s acting abilities (case in point: Mean Girls) and in my opinion her theatrical performance in this new Theophilus London music video gives her career a shred of hope. Although she looks fantastically sexy, she does still kinda exude that whole crackhead vibe. Tell me she doesn’t look like she just hit the meth pipe in the bathroom. Oh well, at least she’s a hot crackhead.

PS – I would have preferred a better looking male specimen. Hot guy in music video FAIL.
