I guess I should upload the pics from my trip. Everyone else has.

The new IKEA catalog is here!!! And I am in love. And I’m ready to make my 2nd trip this week! Haven’t seen the catalog yet? Click here.

“…I’d just rather get it for free.” It’s the truth.

Most Expensive Sports Bra

Thursday, July 29th, 2010 at 7:58 am

It just so happens that today I’m going to Equinox with Dominique to… work out (I guess) and I found the sports bra pictured below (without even looking). The Trenta Bra is supposed to be the most expensive sports bra on the market. At $1,850 it is pretty pricey.
sportsbra
“Attached to this uber stylish sports bra is a gunmetal sterling silver bracelet and necklace from K&H’s Trenta collection. The jewelry is removable and can be worn as a necklace with bracelet or as a long necklace. There is gunmetal burnout fabric used on the sides of the bra, which adds ventilation and chicness.” — via Body Rock Sport

Aside from the fact that I probably couldn’t fill this out nicely without the help of Charmin, I def won’t be hitting the gym in this. I hope Dom is prepared to be seen with me in my red leggings and Converse!

Ruby the Super Woman Asks About Relationships

In case you missed my post on the private networking event I did last Saturday, you can check it out here. One of my guest was Ruby V., a style smart author and blogger for Alicia Keys’ I Am a Super Woman. She asked the other ladies in attendance a few questions to be posed to the men over at Very Smart Brothas. Check out the video below.

The Way We Move

Thursday, June 10th, 2010 at 2:04 pm

I recently started subscribing to Essence magazine and my issue with Jada Pinkett Smith on the cover came on Tuesday. I finally got to it this morning and I’ve been reading it on and off all day.

There’s a spread titled Why I ♥ Being a Black Woman. Below is something written by Denene Millner. Just read it. (click to enlarge)

After I read, I had the urge to burst out in applause. But, I’m at work.

I was on the phone with my mom when the Toy Story 3 commerical came on and I caught a glimpse of this… ol’ school toy. I had one and my mom says she thinks she had one too. What about you?

Make it Earth Day 365

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010 at 4:17 pm

Today is Earth Day. How wonderful that we’ve found ONE day to celebrate our earth! Perfect sense! Well, as I was reading tweets from all of my environmentally conscious “friends” (if only for the day), I thought about that documentary “No Impact Man.” I was finally able to see it after I moved (shout out to Netflix). Around the time I moved, I began to think of ways to… save our poor little planet. Not because I care that much about our earth but simply because being wasteful costs money, especially when I am the sole being footing all of the bills for my new place.

earth-day

The guy in the documentary managed to downsize on his carbon footprint in more ways than his wife was comfortable with, but as I watched, I couldn’t help but think how environmentally conscious and earth friendly anyone who was concerned with their finances has always been. My family and I have always been helping to save our planet as long as we’ve been here. Want to know how we did it and how you can be just as earth conscious AND frugal not just on Earth Day but everyday of your life?

Look below…

Moving On

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010 at 11:46 am

I got an e-mail recently from an old classmate and AssataSAYS reader (as well as a few others) asking for tips on finding an apartment. I don’t know if any of you are aware of this, but I moved out on my own for the first time earlier this year.

I figured since I was absolutely blessed with finding my place, I’d try to help any of you who are trying to move also.
