Spring is near. I can't wait for the freedom to wear bright colors and booty shorts. Just kidding, maybe. Lets face it, we women love spring and summer fashion and so does the clothing departments . Sale after sale just to rack up on new goodies. Each year there's a trend in the fashion world. We girls love looking in magazine's and Pinterest for inspiration. I narrowed down a few fashion trends for you. I collected from Elle, Harper's Bazar, Marie Claire and etc. I picked the most bearable fashion that you can wear on a day to day basics.  Truthful some fashion trends are only meant for the runway. Let's dive on in.

This was on some of the fashion trends of 2018 surprisingly, 2nd year in a row. I love pastel personally.  It's nice to see designers are using this as a inspiration more and not just for Easter. 😂

Latex is a big fashion trend popping up more heavily in the stores at your local mall. From skirts to dresses. It's sexy and a go to for a statement. 

Taking it back we are? Some glasses you may thought were out of style 10 years ago are now heavily being sold everywhere.  Funky 90s sunglasses are back. Rack up a few pair ladies before the price goes up

Each year Pantone color institute picks a color of the year. It's something designers always use as a go to when creating their collections. Last year in 2017 was greenery. Each year you will see heavily that color on the runway. This year 2018 is Ultra Purple. I have saw celebrities shining in this color since the end of last year. Ladies this purple is bold and strong. 

This must be my favorite. Transparent shoes and purses are so dope to me. It's a trend heavily amongst celebrities and just typical fashion. It's easy to pair with anything because it's clear.

Denim will always and forever be in style.  Played out, no way. Everyone has denim and it makes a great statement when paired on top of one another. But it's all about getting the colors of the denim to go together.
Sequin has always been known as fancy normallly on ball gowns. It is becoming very popular as far as tops and pieces. I even own a pair of sequin shorts from forever 21.

Battle of The Sexes: Blac Chyna vs Safaree

We are only 3 months into 2018 and it has already become scandalous. Blac Chyna who's Rob Kardashian ex fiancee was caught on video giving oral which was leaked. Week later socialite Safaree who's Nicki Minaj ex had his nudes leaked (Allegedly by him).  The Internet reacted very differently in both situations.

Blac Chyna was called every whore and thot you can think of. Her ex Mechie who is known to be a hometown homie admitted it was indeed him in the video but claims he didn't leak it. Noboidy assumed it was him. But he was flattered to let everyone know.
She was apparently so upset about it her lawyers went straight to the police. She turned off comments on social media to stop trolls from attacking her. Now clearly from the video she wasn't the one recording it. Social media was more concerned with her oral performance instead of thinking maybe this girl is upset about having a sex tape leaked.

Attention seeking Safaree who's spent the last 4 years living in his ex shadow had his nude penis pictures leaked. Instead he went on a press tour and later dropping his newest song.

Women all over have been sharing his nudes and going crazy. This doesn't seem like a man who's embarrassed by his penis pictures being leaked. Next day he's throwing money promoting his single.

Why is it when Blac Chyna sex tape was leaked she was slammed, and called a unfit mother. But when Safaree who's based his career off of attention had his nudes leaked, he gets praised.

It goes back to women are not treated the same as men. Let's look at both situations.  They both have celebrity high profile exes. They both have dated around a lot.  Both have been on reality tv.  Difference is Chyna took it serious and went to the police. Safaree went to the breakfast club radio station.

" Why are women put down and not men when faced with revenge porn or leaked nudes?

Man Down: " Protecting Yourself From Predators As A Woman

Being a woman has it's perks. If your car breaks down on the side of the road people will always run to your rescue. Or how about free before 11 at the club for ladies. Being a woman is awesome and it does has it's disadvantages. I watch a lot of crime shows. Women are always the target. From robbery, kidnapping, rape, to domestic violence. There are men who take advantage of women because they're bigger and stronger. I can not tell you how recently I have came across a woman robbed and sexually assaulted by a stranger this year alone. Its scary as hell being a woman and knowing you're the prey for a lot of sick, disturbed individuals. Sadly we can't stop every bad person but we can help protect ourselves and be more aware. I don't want you to be scared but I want you to be aware and alert. I am going to give you all a few things to look out for as women to help protect yourself. It breaks my heart when I see a young women assaulted or violated. I am a mom myself to a daughter. I want us all to be safe. Let's start with the number one thing.


Sometimes when a guy offers you a drink it doesn't always mean he's being a gentleman. Never accept a drink from a guy if you didn't actually see him make it. There are guys who will slip a date rape drug into your alcohol beverage to get you knocked out so they can take advantage of you sexually. Most women admit they got very dizzy and lightheaded suddenly and when they woke up didn't remember a thing. Always smell your drink and look clearly at it. Be careful to not leave your drink sitting around too. Some of the most common date rape drugs are roofies, gamma, liquid ecstasy, and special k all street terms. Be careful also outside of clubs. Just because he has a bottle at his house doesn't mean it's still safe to drink. Smell, look, and trust your gut. If he's very pushy for you to drink it, RUN BITCH!

 This is a common way women are violated. If you feel this has happen to you or someone you know, contact your local authorities and contact 1-800-656-HOPE. 

. Watch Your Surroundings 

Sometimes those midnight Wal-Mart runs sounds like a good idea. Nobody is there that late. I remember seeing a episode of See No Evil on investigation network of a teen doing late night shopping. A strange man followed her around the store, and attacked her at her car. He approached her with a gun, kidnapped her, raped her, and killed her. I cried like a baby. It could of been me or you. Girls please watch your surroundings especially when you are alone. I don't want you to be paranoid ,but be aware. If you live alone pay attention to the cars following you. If a person follows you for miles call a friend to have someone on the phone with you. Also if you leave early or come home late, check your surroundings before getting out the car. Always have your keys and phone in hand. It sounds like a lot, but if your key is in your hand it's a life safer if a person is coming at you. 

. Don't Date Anyone

Sometimes a guy may slide in your DM. He seems great, he's cute from his pictures too. Remember , you don't know him. Get to know him very well before agreeing to a date. If you do decide to go out with him make sure it's a public place. 
I don't suggest that but at least inform a friend where you're going, and who you are going with. Truthfully I wouldn't even suggest he picks you up. He can meet you there. It has become common for women to meet up with predators they meet online. I like to see if we have mutual friends, that way you can do a quick reference check.  Don't be thirsty for a date and risk your life. 

. Watch Your Hands & Mouth

There are some crazy ass men out there. Girls be careful how you talk to men. The cursing , and hand in face will set off a already violent man quickly. Some guys are full of rage, it only takes you poking the bear before he unleashes. Please don't get yourself in a violent situation with a physcopath .A quick hit upside his head from you may make him hurt you in a way you might not recover from. Look for signs in abusive men. Crazy people can only hide their crazy for so long. His outburst and how he treats other's will tell you allot. If you see signs of crazy, Run Bitch! Fighting back is for the boxing ring, don't risk your life trying to be Wonder Woman.

Revenge Porn

If I see one more explicit picture or video online of revenge porn I may scream. If you don't know what revenge porn is, its basically posting  explicit pictures or videos of someone without consent. Trust me I know how easy it is to believe the hype when he says he will delete it. I can almost bet you $50.00 he is lying. Don't let these guys record you having sex. You can't even trust boyfriends these days. There are actual websites out there where men expose ex girlfriends by posting their nudes or sex tapes. If you are having sex and you see a flash just get up and start swinging. I know what I said before just in this case get the camera and run. 😂💯
It has happen to me, I had to jump up quick. They sneaky. Don't let them take advantage of you. Your reputation and dignity is what makes you a woman. 


 Don't let your woman's intuition go to waste. Your brain is there for a reason. If it doesn't sound right, or feel right, it must not be right. If you're somewhere with a guy and the vibes feel weird, get out.  Its hard to describe the feeling but it's a quick instinct of danger.

#BlackHistoryMonth - 28 Days Of Black Women In History ( Day 5: Sister Rosetta Tharpe)

Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Also known as the God Mother of Rock N Roll is Sister Rosetta Tharpe.  This woman is a legend in the rock n roll industry but hasn't got much of the recognition like the men who she inspired like Elvis Presley who listened to her growing up. She was the type of artist to shout, and swing hips before Little Richard and Johnny Cash. She turned this type style into a international sensation honey. Let me just say she was a bad ass woman.

Rosetta Nubin is her birth name. She was born in Arkansas. When she first picked up a guitar at age 4 who knew by age 6 she would be performing with her  mother and a evangelist group in churches in the South. Rosetta and her mother continued playing all the way to the 1920's spiritual music, which is now known as gospel.

She had a very unique voice. Her particular style was a mix of blues, jazz and gospel. During the 1930s it was not typical to see a woman playing a guitar especially a black woman. People in the gospel community had a hard time accepting her also. She never let the haters change her. By age 23 in 1938, she joined the Cotton Club Revue. It was a New York City club that became very popular. Rosetta had a hit with her single, "Rock Me."  It had a traditional gospel and rock 'n' roll vibe mixed with blues.


Now her music was kinda sexual but was also gospel so you can imagine the uproar she sent people . She was dominating the industry as a black woman guitarist. She even collaborated with many men in her field.  By the 1940s she even collaborated with white artists Jordanaires. Now it was still segregation while she was performing for mixed audiences. She wasn't able to sleep in the hotels so she slept on the bus. She even had to get food from the back door because she couldn't come inside. She did what she had to do, so she could be successful. 

Later she started to get a celebrity status. Around the time of  World War II she created a song called 
"Strange Things Happening Everyday," with Decca Records. That song reflected on everything going on in the world at that time. It is her biggest record to date. Now some people think it's gospel ,and some think rock n roll. You listen and decide.

She broke down the door for black women who wanted to play instruments the men did especially guitar. She toured in Europe years before dying in 1970s by a stroke. 
She influenced many of your favorites like Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley. Because she was a openly bi sexual woman who played gospel in rock n roll, the industry didn't give her the recognition she deserved. But in 2007 she was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Recently she was elected into the Rock Hall of Fame.
