It's been more than 50 years since the show was created, and to this day it has remained in a class of its own every step of the way.
Sadly, Dent, the woman who inspired the creation of the show, died in 2001 at the age of 96.
And here's a great Youtube on the Ebony Fashion Fair!!
It's almost here...that Winthrop University Homecoming 2008. Yes, I'm going. Even though I got to work Friday 1-7( I leaving at 5, MP!) I'll be on the road toward the Rock Hill/Fort Mill/Charlotte area. It's also CIAA weekend in Charlotte so we got alot to get into. I can't wait to see everyone and I'll make sure to take PLENTY of pictures! Now what I have done was laid out all the potential outfits for the weekend. I have to...because fabulous doesn't come that easy, its a plan of attack. Plus, of course, Cousin's on a budget. I go to have money to drink when I get there!!
Saturday Night (optional)
Saturday( early morning shopping with T.Hall, lunch, the game.)
Friday Night. I wanted to wear a dress but could'nt find what I was looking for and I still need some new black party shoes...
First of all , I went in there to find some black shoes from an ensemble I'm wearing for Homecoming this weekend. I walked right in to the Rachael Ray pots and pans collection( you that's in the orange and green she uses on the show). So you know that just set me on my way to the homewares department. And I go straight to the clearance ends.
Just look at that Mario Batali Bowl Set for $8.00, cousins!!!
And that Bamboo cutting board! I needed a bigger bamboo cutting board. You know to go with my wonderful knife set/block I love.:)

Also, I spotted this bottle of Perrier for Paul & Joe at the Le Lion. What a cool collecter's item for fashion lovers. There's also some cans, but we don't have them. My co-worker is obsessed with those collector's editon Mountain Dew Bottles. I'll be on the look out for the cans...
Now... don't ask for a recipe because I kinda don't remember the measurements of everything with the gravy...:)

I also had been eyeing that Be Fine stuff seems like forever till'...it went on sale. Hello! In this sampler there is a Exfoiliating Cleanser, Firming Toner and Night Cream. I expecting to smell like a Cinnabon after I used it.
Suprisenly, for a "food " based line, its fragrance free. The exfoiliating cleanser went on rough at first but because its has brown sugar in it, it disolved into a creamy wash. The only thing about the toner that I didn't like was that it sprayed out. So I ended up spraying it in my hand and patting it into my skin. The night cream wasn't a cream at all, more like a light moisterizer, unscented and felt good to the touch. In the last three weeks( the whole kit has lasted that long) I see my skin very soft and smooth in the morning. I like it and plan on getting the Cleanser and Night Cream in full size to keep in my nightly regimen.
PS-I would like to apologize for the spelling errors...Blogger's ass won't let me use the spell check!

I did this F.O.T.D with the Future Lovers Quickie Chronicle like a month ago but I couldn't figure out how to download on my new camera "wink-wink!!". Never mind my technique on applying. I don't have any !lol! Plenty of brushes, no technique.
Love's In Ya Face!

Well, I must say, I don't the day because I've had some seriously bad V-Days happen to me and because I'm forever single but I'm super cool. I had fun Monday with the boys making their Valentine's treats for preschool( you gotta start early...or you'll be up to midnight the night before). Plus, I've almost spent most of my income tax on things for the house( I got a Calphalon knife set...it's beautiful and Le Creuset Dutch Oven Pot) so I feel spoiled.:)
Did ya'll get you Sephora catalog this week? I want this Pop Beauty Lid Neon palette but I don't know how "big" the color is going to be. I need "big" techno color for the spring. I'm loving that trend right now. Maybe I'll check it out at Sephora when I go to the WU Homecoming.
Yes... peeps, its that time of year, that Winthrop University Homecoming. It' s the last weekend of the month. It's also the CIAA Tournament Weekend in Charlotte that same weekend. Shoot, I kinda don't want to go, as usual. I get so frantic about seeing everyone and everybody, squeezing in some time to do everything from shopping, to the step show( which I ain't going to... to old to sit through four hours of stepping and kids be crazy at that thing!), eating, conversing, arguing....lol!
But I do miss my peeps and I need a little break.
Love ya'll much!!!

It was good to see Ye' in that piece...RIP Mama Soror Donda.
My LS Shannan texted me and said,"Did Bey step on Tina in that performance?" lol! Check out www.realgossip101.blogspot.com for the real deal.:)
She looked BORING. Sorry, Fashion kids. And her hair fell just as flat.
That performance with The Time. I think the song, Please Don't Stop the Music is very Cece Peniston-esque, love it!! I like her hair here.
photos: www.realgossip101.blogspot.com and www.instyle.com
Tasia and Dro looked like they were going to the Rock Hill HS prom. lol! Go Bearcats!( you know I love da Rock.) I can't get over that head of hers and the ashy lipstick she had on. Get a stylist, honey.
I adored the jewerly and the hair on Nelly. Not a fan of the dress on her though.
Ah...everyone's favorite Black It Girl, Rihanna. I must say, her head looked better in the back here and during that Morris Day and The Time performance( that was off the hook!!!). Cute Zac Posen dress, she needed some earrings too. You can tell this is first time at the short hair ball game.
Yep...Ludacris could get it. lol! Looking like full on sexiness.
Keyshia...Not a very flattering dress at the top on her and little bland for her flava. Even Mary J. bought fabulous back in the day. but I like her new hair color.

The Mascara is pretty great. It has a gel like formula and the brush is flat so no angling or no contortion of the hand, and was great. I did three coats and the my lashes look "Sexy succelent" as Mo' Nique would say.
The Baked Bronzer...I got to give it some time. I love the color but the sparkles were to sparkly, kind of like thick pieces of confetti sparkle. They need to be more finer. But Bronze color was perfect.
If your CVS has this sale...It's a perfect time to gave PF a whirl.
Any body have any favorite PF products? Let me know in the comments!
I got bronchitis. And would like to dedicate this post to my two sick ass kids who gave it me. Mommy loves you!!! Now when they get sick I go into "take care of them" mode, but when I get sick, I curl up in the bed under 4 blankets wondering what to take. Interesting, sometimes you forget how to take care of yourself when you get sick.
I stumbled on this photo of Rihanna and Kelis at some pre-Grammy thingy one of my fav blogs, Crunk and Disorderly. I almost coughed up a lung while reading it! Love that polish Rih- Rih but get that nape shaped up, boo. Take some notes from my fellow fashionista, Lauren AKA Fashion Kitty.
Now, I wonder what polish that is? Any suggestions?

www.makeup.com has Becca's Holiday 2007 Gift Sets on sale now. The pic above is the Romanticise Holiday Gift Set for $39.00. That's a steal considering Becca Lipglosses are $22.00( I think...) I'm waiting for UPS to deliver it as we speak. Plus the Glamourise Holiday Set is $29.00, ok? Get it while the getting is good...I missed out on the Sephora sale on Becca last year so I'm making up for lost lipgloss.:)
Please, Please don't ask where I've been on this one...
But this week's beauty/fashion soundtrack is Chrisette Michelle. First of all, I messed around and bought it, forgetting that a friend of mine was sending me a copy then I got hooked like crack. This broad is the "truth" I tell you. I know why I didn't intially get it back in the summer of 2007 because I don't like her first two singles. But that "Be Ok" song..."I'm goin' drive my Lexus to da mall...." Love it Love it!!
My favorite song is the last track, "This Is Way Love Is" AND "Mr. Radio" AND "Golden"!!!
