Diva Info: Do You Know About Lupus?

I've recently been volunteering with the Lupus Foundation of America's Georgia Chapter. It began with the End Lupus Now Walk and I felt my efforts should not stop there. As a lupus patient, I am one of millions living in the United States with this autoimmune disease, yet we do not get the funding for research and education we need to learn more about the disease. I am doing my part to get the word out there, it is only fitting that I already have a platform, my blog.

Beauty Discussion: My Go-To Nail Polish

Wet N Wild Polish: On a Trip

Did a quick polish change for a post work event. I love Wet  N Wild's Megalast polishes. The formula is thick enough to give my desired opacity in one stroke of the brush. The brush is wide and can cover most of your nail upon  application. Love!

What's your go-to polish?

Beauty Discussion: I Love/Hate This Nail Polish

 Milani Disco Lights

This polish look familiar? If so, it's probably because you've passed it on your many strolls down the makeup aisle at your local drugstore. I tried it for the first time about two years ago and was less than thrilled.  I just knew I wouldn't pick up this polish again. I put it in the "pretty in the bottle, but not on the nails" category. However, a post work event loomed very near (less than 24 hrs) and I needed to spruce up my nails. After three failed attempts with two other polishes, Milani's Disco Lights had a new sparkle.

DC News Break: Chris Kelly of Kris Kross Found Dead at Age 34

The gloomy weather matches this sad day hip hop. Chris Kelly(left), 1/2 of the 90's rap duo Kris Kross was found dead yesterday evening in Atlanta, Ga. The rapper was thirty four years old. The rap duo was known for wearing their baggy attire backwards. Having an influence on fashion, many photoshoots have used Kriss Kross inspired looks. MTV UK is the most recent releasing photos as early as this week.


The rappers, whose claim to fame was their hit Jump, have earned their spot in hip hop history . Chris Kelly recently reunited with Chris Smith  this past February for Atlanta based record label So So Def's 20th Anniversary concert. It was rumored that more music was to come in the future.  

Take a trip down memory lane...

R.I.P Chris "Mac Daddy" Kelly, our thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
