SOUND OFF! Willow’s New "WHIP MY HAIR" Video

Willow Smith, daughter of power couple Will & Jada Pinkett Smith, is definitely on IDEAL’s 1 to watch list! When her song “Whip My Hair” first leaked last month the Internet was going crazy over this high energy & infectious song! & I gotta tell ya I love it 2! Kept it on repeat for about an hour! Who knew a 9 year could get people this hype!

LOVED THIS! I was definitely a little worried of how this was going to turn out! But it was PERFECT! Not too grown, light hearted, & @ the end of the day it captured the essence of the song! Go Willow! #WhipmyHair

UPDATE: MY NEW FAVORITE SHOW IS…….

HOUSE OF GLAM!!! the new Oxygen reality series following THEE hottest celebrity image agency, the B. Lynn Group!

I haven’t gotten butterflies from watching a show about fashion since my boo Christian Siriano won Project Runway! & he was in the first episode so that got me going! I mean I was literally on the edge of my seat excited the entire time I watched!

Besides the multiple fashion orgasms, I think what captivated me the most was the fact that these were all YOUNG & EXTREMELY talented individuals ambitiously pursuing their passion in their creative field! & we all know how I feel about young people making their dreams & goals a success! I was VERY much inspired!

Founded by Brandi Simpkins, B Lynn represents a brand of professionalism that is nothing short of excellence when it comes to styling & putting together an entire “look” for some of the BIGGEST names in the entertainment industry!

The entire staff has personality & I could see their drive! I found them all relatable & when I looked @ them, I saw ME! PLUS their own style is just SICKENING– Crystal’s is my fave!

I could go on & on but honestly once I saw Kelly Cutrone in the previews, well that was just the notarized stamp of approval for me! So be sure to tune in tonight & every Tuesday @ 10pm to watch House of Glam on Oxygen! Check out a clip from tonight’s episode below!

MINX V. SHEEKEE’s!

MINX!

Unless you are living under a rock….Nevermind I’m sure even a rock has heard of MINX by now!

They’re high fashion nail wraps that became popular when superstars such as Beyonce & Lady Gaga started rockin them!

It comes in many designs but the most popular is metallic bcuz the foiling provides a platinum look that you could never get with regular nail polish! According to many nail techs that I have asked personally & sites I’ve researched on the Internet, minx should last about a week on your hands and about 3 to 4 wks sometimes longer on your toes.
Now have you ever heard of Sheekee’s?Formely called “Trendy Nails”, it’s basically the same concept as Minx but w/ a few differences.
#1 Sheekee’s do have the metallic lk Minx but the other designs vary. For instance w/ sheekee’s u cn jus hav the design on the tips of ur nails as pictured.
#2 Minx are secured w/ heat lamps, but sheekees are secured w/ blow dryers.
#3 The biggest difference btwn the 2 products is that sheekees are suppose to last longer!4-6 weeks to be exact.
MY VERDICT!
I got a minx/sheekee pedi for the first time. I was set on minx but my nail tech told me for $5 extra I could get the sheekee’s that last longer. So, I got plain gold metallic sheekee’s on four of my toes & a leopard print pink minx on the other 1. I stuck to my usual minimum 2 shower a day ritual & after only 3 days my pinky toe sheekees were slidin off. Its now 3 weeks later & I’ve completely lost my pinky toe! The rest of the sheekees are rippling around the edges, but the 1 minx I got on each foot is doing just fine! No rippling, its securly on w/ no problems. So I would get the minx again but NOT the sheekees esp since u have to pay extra. I also preferred the minx designs as they were more of my taste. Also, FYI the cost of the minx pedi averages about $55-$65. You’re def payin 4 the hype bcuz the process & application of the minx is not nearly as long as a regular paint job!xoxo
Have ne of u guys been MINXED or SHEEKEE’D? What was ur experience? btw: I hear u cn get a gel overlay & the minx/ sheekees will last longer!

I WANT A PAIR OF COMBAT MILITARY BOOTS!

I know I know Another lace up boot trend……BUT this time think less GIRLY/ CUTE & more EDGY & RUGGED!

Whatever your price point, ALOT of brands from Guess to Giuseppe are making the military style boot for the fall season! Wear them w/ black tights, a simple tee, & a denim jacket like actresses Blake Lively & Rachel Bilson!

WAIT Rachel Zoe & Bradley SPLIT? Where Have I Been!

This was definitely a newsflash to me!


I had no idea that Brad & Rachel were no longer working together! Remember it was just about this time last year when former assistant Taylor Jacobson left or was fired depending on whose telling the story. Anyways Brad & Rachel both say the split was amicable w/ Brad feeling the time was right to spread his wings. BUT I got the scoop while reading my new fave site “Tres Dope” that there are rumors circulating saying the contrary. Brad was sick of Rachel taking credit for his hard work. Also @fashionista said that Rachel was a little envious of Brad getting more of the spotlight than her & the ish really hit the fan when Brad was a feature in “The New York Times”! I LOVE Rachel & I LOVE BRAD so idk what to think of all this….

Meanwhile there’s also been a buzz that Rachel Zoe may finally be expecting her first child! I hope this is true, her husband really wanted a baby, but the timing of this rumor seems all too convenient! Diverting attention from bad press…

GOLD FLY & FLASHY!


I posted this photo of my new style crush Solange wearing these bomb gold/metallic shoegasms. So yesterday when I saw Rihanna wearing what look’d like the same wedges I had to know who they were by. I google’d hard & finally gave up & tweeted @solangeknowles on a whem 2 ask her for the designer. & Guess what?!!!
SHE RESPONDED: “Zanotti” (U know I freaked!, thnx again Solange)

& while we’re on the subject….

I must be honest. I used to DESPISE a gold shoe! But now I think they’re actually a HAUTE buy especially for Fall season!

Besides the Giuseppe Zannoti’s above, I have spotted a few more faves online. Something as subtle as the Tory Burch “Reva” flat or flashy as the sparkly “Stella” pumps from H by Halston available @ Bakers can add just enuf splash to ur look! Be inspired by BOLD GOLD! Start w/ a simple shoe or maybe a bag & go from there!
