 As stated in the intro of My Favorite Thing That Ever Happened,  Chrisette wanted her newest body of work to be " One long piece with five movements." This is exactly what it sounds like too. All of the tracks blend seamlessly into the next without the waist of space called silence in between tracks. I played the violin growing up, so her latest project,  I can definitely appreciate. My favorite tracks so far are Art and Hennessy Shot.

Track Listing:

1. My Favorite Thing That Ever Happened
2. Art
3. Super Chris
4. Together
5. Hennessy Shot
6. Make Us One

Fab Photos: Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson's Wedding Photos

The Knowles sisters sure know how to keep a secret don't they? We only found about about Solange marrying her long time boyfriend, Alan Ferguson the weekend of the wedding.  The theme was all white and in usual Solange form, she did not wear a traditional wedding gown, nor did she take traditional wedding photos.  Prepare to be amazed below.

Diva's Life: I Almost Forgot to Live

Okay, I made the decision recently that I'm not going to schedule my life around my job or other entities that can easily consume you. I need to LIVE and that is no way to do it. Don't get me wrong,  I'm not being irresponsible.  I've worked very hard in school and at all my jobs, but jobs will keep you from living if you don't come up for air. They will keep you in a rut. You will end of like me not seeing family members, friends,  putting off that trip, all because of work and your routine that seems hard to break. So you tell yourself,  next month, next year. Well I'm writing this FOUR years after I made those promises to myself.

 I have a master's degree to finish that I haven't started yet because I'm "finding time." I've never been the person to keep from "doing",  but I've gotten so used to being the hamster in the wheel of work, pay bills, sleep, eat, then repeat that I've lost sight of what's important.  Those who were there to support you to help you get to this point: The Hamster Wheel Routine.

They've been moments where I tell myself to phone a friend,  but getting sidetracked by the routine (yet again), I say I'll call later. Later turns into weeks. Sad! Before you know it, you are existing by yourself in a false  world you created.

From now on, I'll schedule everything around the life I almost forgot to live, instead of trying to fit living a full life into a "routine".

Here's to not scheduling life!!

Outfit Inspiration: Gold Embellishments

So I'm really into gold lately. I've always gravitated towards silver, but gold accents have  been in heavy rotation for the past couple of months. I've created an Outfit Inspiration that eventually ended up with gold trickled in.

This look is perfect for fall. A solid jewel colored dress is a staple. An embroidered blazer amps up the glam factor. An oxblood tote compliments while being large enough for essentials. Peep toe booties in the same color pull the look together or for you ladies in warmer climates, a multicolored option was added. Moschino gold earrings are perfect for a statement jewelry piece.

Dress: Dolce & Gabbana
Blazer: Balmain
Oxblood Booties: Burberry
Multicolored Booties: Jimmy Choo
Tote: Vivienne Westwood
Earrings: Moschino

Stay tuned for more Outfit Inspirations!
