Keep Calm...

Happy Monday, Lovies! I know this is a fashion blog, but I just thought I'd share something a little non-fashion...For those of you that don't know, I absolutely LOVE sports...I especially LOVE all of my Houston teams...Astros, Texas, Rockets, Aeros, Dynamo...LOVE them ALL! I'm really looking forward to football season and REALLY looking forward to the Texans going deeper into the play offs this season. With that being said, all of you football loving fashionistas should do the following...

Fashion and Stuff I Saw and LIKED...

Hey Lovies!

It's Sunday...I don't do much on Sundays except for go to church, come home, cook and watch Redbox movies until it's time for me to hit up J's for $1 Hollas or watch football. SN: I can't wait for football to start...GO TEXANS!

Anyway, I don't really feel like doing much writing today, so this post is straight pictures. Pictures of stuff I saw on the web that I liked. Hopefully, you'll enjoy some of these things too...

LOVE her look!

Nothing like a blue eyed baby in a head wrap!

Not sure if this is the same diner that I visit when I'm in SoBe, but it sure looks like it..
Even if it's not it makes me think of SoBe and how much I miss it!

Love the pastel colors...

Bye Bye, Biore...

Hey Lovies! Y'all know I'm ALWAYS trying to get stuff on the cheap, cheap and if I can't get it on the cheap, cheap I figure out how to make my own. With that being said, you really shouldn't be surprised when I tell you that YOU, yes, YOU can make your own pore strips in the comfort of your own home! How you might ask? Well, let me tell you...trust me, it's more simple than you think! Follow the instructions shown below and you'll be well on your way to saving oodles and oodles of money.

If you give it a whirl, let me know how it worked for you. I've made the concoction myself and I love it! Enjoy lovies!

Ciao and see ya at the TOP!

Bye Bye, Biore Homemade Pore Strips Recipe:


Make-up Brush: Foundation brush works the best
Microwaveable Bowl


1 tsp Gelatin
1 tsp Milk


1. Mix all ingredients into a microwaveable bowl
2. Place bowl and ingredients into microwave for about 10 seconds
3. Remove bowl from microwave.
4. Check temperature of bowl contents. If the contents are not too warm, brush the gelatin and milk mix across the top of your nose and let it sit for ten minutes.
5. After the mixture has been on your nose for ten minutes, peel it off.
6. You'll probably be grossed out by what you see, but at least your skin will be clean and clear!

It's Getting Pintresting Pt. II: The Lollipop Bouquet...

Hello Lovies!

I know I promised y'all a while back that I'd do a little better with my posting and clearly, I have NOT. Things have been really busy around here. Between working (yes, I have a regular job...blogging and doing other random things is NOT my regular job...one day people, one day), eBaying, teaching and just trying to stay on top of other things I really haven't had much time to write. I've missed  y'all! Eventhough I haven't been writing much, I've been crafting up a storm and posting items to eBay like crazy (look me up on eBay...Boujebeauty1908...you'll find great items...make-up, clothing, shoes, etc.).

My latest creation was for my diva niece, Ava. Ava has an obsession with hair and fashion (I wonder where she gets it from?! *looks around room*). So it was only right for me to create a gift for her 6th birthday that was not only fashionable and chic, but FUNCTIONAL! I created a Lollipop Hair Accessory Boutique for Miss Ava and I'm sure she is going to LOVE IT!

The picture below doesn't really do the bouquet justice, because I had to kinda smash it so it could go into the flat rate shipping box with all of her other birthday goodies. If you like the  bouquet and want to get one for yourself or another little diva in your life check out my Etsy store (http://www.etsy.com/shop/PearlieB) to place your order.

Enjoy the pics of the Lollipop Bouquet and FABULOUS pics of my favorite niece, Miss Ava! Happy 6th Birthday, Diva!

For The Fellas: More Cool Fashion

Hey Lovies!

There's nothing like a well dressed man, so I'm keeping to my word and providing cool fashion for the fellas.

Take a look at the pics below...share em with your man, encourage him to spice up his style. If you're like me and have no man, look at these pictures and pray that your future man is as stylish as you are and will have no problem rockin' some of these looks.

Ciao lovies and see ya at the TOP!


I love, Love, LOVE this look...Nothing like a man in a nice shirt, nice blazer and a nice pair of jeans...AMEN!

For those Saturday outings or laid back Sundays. I see so many amazing outfits in my head...These shoes are soooo versatile. Hello, God? It's Me, Natalie...Send me a cool dude with great fashion sense and a good heart and all that other good stuff! :)

All of these looks are GREAT to me!

Hey! Need some help? Grab this book! :)

I'm loving it all, even the tattoos...I have a thing for tattoos...don't ask me why. LOL! :)

Hermes for Vans Collaboration...I can dig it...High-end meets Skater. LOVES IT! :)

Relaxed and Fabulous: There's Something About This Look...

There's something about this look that really caught my attention. I'm not sure if it's the bright colors or the intentional mix of relaxed (see baseball cap and cropped sweatwhirt) and fabulous (see sunglasses, fabulous clutch, date book, and AWESOME pumps). Either way it goes, I like it...I'm considering rocking it, but I have one problem...my weave is gigantic and so is my head...I have no idea how I will fit all this hair and all this head under a baseball cap...I'll have to practice and see what I can come up with! LOL!

Is this a yea or a nay in your book, lovies? Post a comment, let me know! Don't forget share the blog link with a friend...they'll be glad you did and so will I!

Robot Hands: Yea or Nay?

Would you rock this robot hand looking accessory? I'm not sure where I would wear it, but I think it looks cool. It reminds me of Blue Ivy's mama's glove...y'all know the one she wore in one of those music videos or at one of those award shows. My memory is fuzzy right now...it's been a long day and I've been posting left and right; here and there, so work with me.

Check it out, let me know what you think!

Enjoy and see ya at the TOP!

Skeeeeeeee-Weeeeeeeee My Sorors...

Hello Lovies and Happy Sunday! I thought I'd get your week started off right, by showing you a fabulous pair of shoes in an even more FABULOUS colorway. Yes, lovies...move over Louboutin (not really), there's a new shoe bottom color in town and it's not RED! It's the PINK bottom! I am ABSOLUTELY loving this GREEN shoe with the PINK bottom. This shoe is EVERY sorors dream come true! If I could snatch the designers name from Pintrest I would, but unfortunately the pinner just pinned the shoe no designer. I guess we'll just have to stare at this beautiful shoe colorway. *le sigh*

Enjoy and see you at theTOP!
