DC Inspiration: Grind and Make it Work

This post was going to be about how I stay inspired, educated, and motivated as a rising entrepreneur (Renaissance Cosmetics coming to a household near you!). I'll expound on that a little later. Life took me  in a different direction, however, which led to this post. Have you ever received a great opportunity,  but was reluctant to accept it because you are already booked?  Ever refrained from asking the giver of such an opportunity to work with you and your schedule for fear they will back out all together?  Well it happened to me with an opportunity at work.

The Latest in Fashion News: Anna Wintour Responds to Critics Regarding Kim & Kanye's Vogue Cover

So. Ms. Wintour professionally snapped back to all the critics of Vogue's latest cover with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. She covers the begging rumors and dishes on whose idea it really was to put them on the cover. Read it below.

“Part of the pleasure of editing Vogue, one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it. I think we can all agree on the fact that that role is currently being played by Kim and Kanye to a T. (Or perhaps that should be to a K?)

Fab Cover Stories: Kim&Kanye for Vogue April '14

Kanye huffed and puffed and oobviously persuaded Anna Wintour  into giving Kim a Vogue cover. He's been working on Anna for a least a year and it all paid off. He's sharing the cover with his wife-to-be Kim Kardashian. I'm not suprised she didn't have a solo cover, all hell would have broke loose in the fashion world. Many are dissatisfied with this cover.  I can't say I'm thrilled, she's giving reality television "stars" something to look forward to. What are your thoughts?

It it said that she was hanging by a scarf on a doorknob and there was no evidence of foul play.

Good Morning!

Oprah is my style muse, and her latest cover for her eponymous magazine should explain why. The styling for her covers keeps getting better and better.

I'm especially loving Oprah's cover photos as of late. Every since the famous giant afro cover, they've gotten a lot more fun. For her April 2014 cover,  she mixes prints in a Clover Canyon skirt and  Christian Louboutin pumps. Haute!

DC PSA: New Blogging Schedule

Hello All,

Life has taken me in a new direction and it's taking me a while to form a concrete schedule. You know how you have to find a new groove that works? I've tried my best to keep up with my blogging schedule,  but those of you who work full time know the challenge.  Work among other things have been keeping me busy, thus causing me to post more infrequently. I, in no way intend stop blogging,  but I'm just letting you know posting will not be as consistent  until I can work around my new "life" schedule.  In the meantime,  Diva Chronicles is active on the major social platforms,  because it's just easier to post to Instagram, Facebook,  or Twitter; less editing.

DC Beauty Tip: Toner as Setting Spray

Your toner and setting spray has two things in common: denatured alcohol.  So if you haven't dove in and bought that $20+ setting spray or if you want an inexpensive alternative, I have your solution.  The denatured alcohol closes your pores thus helping reducing the oil on your face. After applying your makeup, spray some of your toner on your face and watch the results.  It behaves just like a setting spray.

That's it for now!

PFW 2014: Chanel Fall 2014

It's now time for the Paris shows and one of my favorites is Chanel. I just love the production and how they tie it in to the clothes. The luxury brand is showing us that they can do casual as well as classy. The sneakers and casual ensembles uplifted by posh fabrics appeared again this year. The theme was a grocery store, and like the supermarket, the collection displayed an array of color. Fun comic book inspired clutches, bedazzled bracelets and fun milk carton purses were also sprinkled throughout the range. Click below for more.
