Saturday Swinging or Swangin'(if you are SC)...

Saturday, February 17, 2007

So today I went to Haywood Mall in Greenville. I love that mall,I'll drive an hour on I-85 "hell"a-state to get to it. It has all the characteristics and some of the stores of SouthPark Mall in Charlotte( It's a Simon Mall too) but without the "I'm rich, bitch" aura. You can go into Haywood and not feel bad because you are not carrying a designer bag or driving a Benz and you still get great stores and shopping. Here's some highlights:

MAC Counter at Belk's-I wasn't overwhelmed with "need"or crazy in love with any of the Barbie for MAC stuff I saw. But thought it was very pretty and fun. I think I want lipglasses in Happening Gal and Malibu Barbie. And I might join the bidding war on Ebay for a special edition MAC Barbie. I did score a couple of fold-out Barbie postcards for my MAC postcard collection. I did see a oldie but goodie Ruby Woo that I want again.

The Body Shop- I loved The Body Shop when I worked in SouthPark so I have to go in the one Haywood when I'm there. I "need"the Neroli Jasmine and Rougeberry(notes:Top Notes: raspberry, tangerine and apple. Middle Notes: heliotrope, rose, violet and peach. Base Notes: musk, amber, cedarwood, sandalwood, vanilla and sugared almond) eau de perfumes for the spring/summer. They smell like nothing you'll ever smell. Plus I sampled some men's fragrances I liked.

Williams and Sonoma- I could live and breathe in there. It's a foodie's paradise and they are always stuffing something down your throat when you go in. Today, they were trying to pimp into buying some Udon noodles. Already got some, peeps. I plotted on a 10-piece glass bowl set for my new place that the boys and I are moving to in May.

Victoria's Secret-saw the new Beauty Rush Body products and LE Insatiable stuff in Hazelnut and Chocolate Covered Berries. I "need" that Chocolate Covered Berries Body Lotion.


I won!!!

Friday Night...

Last night,I went to see Daddy's Little Girls. You know, I love a Tyler Perry/Madea Play ( I have them, all including the movies) so I was exicited to see a non-Madea movie and see what Mr.Perry had up his sleeve. Now, I'm not Entertainment Weekly so don't get on me for my reviewing skills. I thought it was good but was unfinished. Unfinished like a granite rock not a pebble stone that's mostly smooth. The story was easy to follow but needed more attention to detail that's what made it unfinished.

For instance, the character that Idris"Fine Ass" Elba( oh, he was beautiful!) plays is a hard working father trying win custody of his children from his hoochie mama baby's mama played by Tyra Banks BFF Tasha Smith(who's acting was kinda campy). Okay, the only thing that movie gives ou is that they are parents to their kids, its doesn't give enough background on their past relationship which could explain how things became to be. Another example, Gabrielle Union's friends played by Terri J.Vaughn and Tracee Ellis Ross are always trying to set her up on a blind date and they mention that they went to college( I know they said she went to an Ivy League college) together. Okay, what college? Details like what college could give me personally insight on the dynamic of the friendship. Little stuff like that is what makes things finished for me. Now go see it...It's cute. Plus it had some yummy fashion like:

Gabrielle Union- she plays an attorney and wears some great tailored pieces but with a little youth and fun. Her wardrobe is not stuffy at all. She carries during the movie a Navy Chloe Paddington bag and her hair is styled in beautiful cropped fat ringlets. Plus she looks like she is wearing a highlighter or a bronzer so her skin looks great. There is one scene she's got on this khaki/tan jacket cinched with a wide brown belt. It was very Michael Kors-esque.

Malinda Williams- she plays G.Union's assistant and repping in fashion like they do in the ATL. Every thing she had on was an "outfit", the shoes matched the top matched the earrings matched the bag. And the haircut...bad...ladies....bad!
