For The Home: Color Blocking...

Hey Lovies!

Check out this about the ULTIMATE in color blocking for the home. It's a little bright for my liking, but it's still cool. Is this something y'all might consider doing in a room in your home? I think I'm going to have to say NO for me...I'm a little safe when it comes to home decor, but totally OUT there when it comes to my personal fashion, hair, make-up, and shoes!

Twisted All Over You...

Hey Lovies!

This morning I was listening to the Steve Harvey Morning Show and they were playing Keith Sweat's 'Twisted' (go ahead and twirl your finger in the air like he did in the video...I promise I won't judge, because that's the first thing I did when the song came on...LOL...#throwback). Anyway, shortly after I heard that song I was perusing the web and came across these absolutely fabulous shoes designed by Julian Hake. This beaute is called the Mojito. I'm not sure what it's going for and it doesn't really matter. I just thought it was a cool shoe and I thought y'all might enjoy taking a peek at it. So yeah, go ahead, take a look and get on YouTube and watch the Keith Sweat 'Twisted' video...makes ya feel all nostalgic, right? LOL!

House of Dereon Fall 2012 Collection...

Hey Lovies! Blue Ivy's mama has done it again and is letting us know she was here last year and here again  in 2012. Beyonce and her mother, Mrs. Tina, will be releasing the House of Dereon 2012 Fall Collection REALLY soon and it can only be described in TWO words: Fierce.Hunty. *snaps fingers and flips hair* This new collection from the mother/daughter fashion duo is absolutely amazing and totally out of the box for these fashionistas. Think diva fashionista meets hipster meets biker chick. Mrs. Carter is still keeping it sexy this season with curve hugging dresses, bootylicious bottoms and such, but she's thrown in biker boots and some other punk-y accessories to give it just the right amount of edge. I don't know about y'all, but I'm damn excited about this collection, Beyonce's new album (she's been in the lab with Ye and Hit Man...SN: Y'all think she allows Kim K. to come to sessions???? None of my business, but I just wondering...), and of course seeing more pics of Miss Blue Ivy. I'm excited y'all...I love it when Texas girls do BIG things! #HTownStandUp

Enjoy these pics lovies and see ya at the TOP!

Brass Knuckles Anyone?

Hey Lovies! If I'm not mistaken, brass knuckles are  weapon, right? If they are considered a weapon it must only be in the world of the fashionably challenged. Here lately, brass knuckles have been popping up everywhere thanks to the innovative, avant garde fashions created by none other than Mr. McQueen.

Mr. McQueen, as in THE Alexander McQueen, introduced us to the wonderful world of brass knuckles a while ago by way of this FABULOUS little clutch and the trend took off like no other.

Alexander McQueen Clutch
Not sure of the price on this one, but the suggested price for a couple was starting at $2000.
So yeah, after reading the caption below the picture I'm sure you guys are like, 'What The What?!' Because seriously, lovies...who has TWO G's (that's two-thousand dollars for the slang challenged...LOL) to drop on a wee-little clutch? *looks around and shouts, 'NOT ME!'* That little clutch is worth a down payment on a car, cash out for car if you're interested in a hoo-doo (that's a raggedy car for the slang lovies are getting a lot of lessons today...lessons in fashion and slang...LOL), and in my case a couple months of rent! Anyway, I'm no celeb (YET!) and I'm not Diddy's boo Cassie (see photo below) so I don't have a brass knuckle clutch made by THE Alexander McQueen, BUT what I am is a resourceful, diva fashionista on a dime and I was able to find a great brass knuckle clutch for myself and for all of you LOVELY fashionistas.

Diddy's Boo, Cassie
For $55.00 you can be IN on the TREND and even have money to SPEND (look y'all...I'm rhyming...I'm a poet and didn't know it) by purchasing your clutch via Pearlie B's Lounge and Boutique! For more information on this clutch, please email

Wet N Wild...

Hey Lovies! As I've gotten older, I've started to wear lipstick a little more frequently than I used to. As I was shifting from lip gloss to lipstick I wanted to try a lot of different colors, but I didn't want to break the bank. One day while I was at Walgreens I came across the Wet N Wild brand. I was quite familiar with Wet N Wild as I had used it before, because my mom absolutely refused to buy me MAC when I was in high school (Mean Mommy...LOL!)! So I went back to my teenage ways and grabbed a couple of tubes of Wet N Wild lipstick for $1.99, hoped for the best and expected the worst when it came time for application. After a few rounds in the store and a car ride home, it was finally time for me to try out my new product! I opened my package and slapped that lipstick on and was in LOVE! The product glided onto my lips with no problem and the staying power was AMAZING!

If you lovies are shifting from gloss to lipstick, DO NOT sleep on Wet N Wild. I promise it will be the best $1.99 you ever spent!

Me wearing Wet N Wild Lipstick...Don't get me to lying about the shade color...I can't remember the name, BUT what I do know is it's FABULOUS!

Mascara, iHeart YOU...

So lovies, this is a totally random post, BUT just the other day I was perusing Cosmo magazine and I saw a little blurb about mascara. Did you know mascara has multiple uses? If not, you will know after reading this FABULOUS post!

Did you know your mascara can be used as an eyeliner? I've had a ton of mascara flubs myself, so I just blend it in some kinda way to make it look presentable, but I NEVER knew the REAL pros suggest using it as eyeliner. To use your mascara as an eyeliner, simply take an angled brush and dip it into the tube of mascara, and sweep it across your lashline for perfect definition!

Who woulda thunk intentionally using mascara as an eyeliner would REALLY work?!

I Didn't Know This Could Do That...

Hey Lovies! Did you know there are tons of things you have in your home that have multiple uses? If not, after reading this post you will be in the know. Take a look below and learn how you can use common household items to do more than just one thing!

Ciao Lovies and see ya at the TOP!

Stuck in your jeans?! Run chapstick, yes chapstick on the zipper to loosen it up.

Need to shine your shoes? Take a dab of lotion, put it on a paper towel and shine away!

Want to prevent soap scum? Add a little baby oil to your soap dish before placing the bar of soap into the dish.

Foggy mirror? Prevent shower fog on mirror by wiping mirror down with shaving cream...for some odd reason or another it prevents fog...BEATS ME! LOL!

Give some of these a whirl and let me know how they work out for ya!

Freebie Friday...Kinda...

Hey Lovies! Lord knows I LOVE free stuff, thigns I can get done on the cheap-cheap and of course D-I-Y projects.

So ummm the spirit of saving a little more here and there I have some fun little recipes you can try at home for little to no cost to you, especially if you already have these items in your pantry or fridge.

Ciao Lovies and see ya at the TOP!

Make Your Own Lip Gloss:

No time to run to the store, no ends (throwback term for the word 'money') to run to the MAC counter and spend about $15.00 on a tube of lip gloss? Welp...never fear, I'm here to tell you how YOU, yes YOU can make your own lip gloss. If you have vaseline and Kool-Aid,'re in the business and you can start making your own lip gloss.

Simply take a scoop of vaseline, not too much...put it in the microwave for about ten to fifteen seconds...add the Kool-Aid for color and BAM! Your own lip gloss...Wasn't that easy?


Make Your Own Acne Treatment:

Everybody hates a pimple, right? Well, here's a quick and easy recipe to help you fight the little monsters that tend to show up on your face at the most inopportune time. All you need is one uncoated aspirin tablet and four drops of water. Take the aspirin tablet, crush it, add the four drops of water and apply the paste to the affected area. Let the paste sit on the affected area for about three minutes and then rinse with cold water.
If you're having a serious break out, make a mask...follow the same steps, just use more crushed aspirin and more water. Easy, right?

Oh I forgot to mention, this concoction can also be used to reduce pores and prevent future outbreaks! Man, gotta love a little aspirin!

Last one, lovies...

Teeth Whitener:

Forget Crest White Strips! Make your own teeth whitener by taking a cap full of peroxide and swish it around in your mouth for a couple of minutes, spit it out and follow up with a swig of water and *TING!* your teeth are as white as Madea's...HELLUR...GOOD MORNTING!

Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby...

*singing in my Brandy voice* 'Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby...don't you know that you're so finnnnnnnnnnnnnneeeeeeeeeeee..." Whoops! Sorry y'all, I was having a'll have to excuse me! So umm yeah, today is another day, time for a new discovery...YES! Today's discovery is baby powder!

Who woulda thunk baby powder could be used for so many things?! Baby powder can do wayyy more than keep babies butts fresh and dry...Baby powder can be used to do the following:

1. Protect your faux glow.

Sprinkle a bit onto sweat prone areas to avoid streaks in bronzer.

2. To remove hairs that stick to skin after a haircut.

Dust powder onto your neck and chest to lift strays.

3. As a pre-shave protectant.

Apply to dry legs before you shower. The silky texture helps the razor glide.

4. Use as a dry shampoo.

Fluff some into the roots of greasy, unwashed hair to stop oil.

5. To prevent blisters.

Coat your heels or shake some into your shoes to soak up sweat (less moisture means less friction).

Try these tips out and let me know how they work out for you!

The Struggle: A Story Told With Pics...

When I started out this entrepreneurial journey it was scary...I was told by someone, maybe a book, a person, a voice in my head...

So this chick did just that...Raised the rent, kicked them out and...

Soooo I've been working my ass off and I'm NOT giving up...
