She Aint Got…

LeToya in the She Aint Got video
Fresh off her (pre) BET awards show performance is Letoya Luckett’s new video “She Aint Got”. I’ve been waiting for her to come out with a club banger, and quit with the R&B sleepers. She looks great in the Matthew Williamson tunic. I have the matching sarong!

My Time to Shine

Scalp & Breakage Miracle Line by Smooth ‘N Shine: For natural ladies too!

I have been wearing my hair naturally for a few years now, and have developed a system of carefully caring for my thick mane along with my stylist. I love her because she is a one-on-one personal stylist who really understands my natural hair, and has gotten it to its strongest and healthiest in years. She’s also a master of the hot press, and leaves my hair feeling soft, silky, and lustrous whenever I decide to go that route-because perms are simply not an option for me anymore. With so much care invested in my hair, its not hard to understand why I cannot put just anything on my mane. I need the products to do their job, protect my hair from excessive heat, and not weigh my hair down. So I decided to give the Smooth ‘N Shine system a try.

I start by washing and blow drying my hair. I am 100% natural.

I then apply the Leave-In Treatment Conditioner and blow dry straight. My hair was pretty soft and fluffy, and there was hardly any breakage.

Getting my curl-on: I apply the Aid-Intense Nourishing Balm which protected my hair from the dreaded curling iron burn.

After curling, I spritz on some Root to Tip Conditioning Oil Sheen Spray for the finale. And I’m good to go! Silky and shiny–no perm or press needed!

Kanye West, The Good Life
Sample: Pretty Young Thing
Good Life-KanYe West T-Pain

Jay-Z, Izzo

Let’s Celebrate Michael Jackson

By now, I’m sure that you’ve heard that we’ve lost one of the most extraordinary entertainers of all time earlier this afternoon. However, I refuse to mourn, for Michael Joseph Jackson wouldn’t have wanted us to be sorrowful.

Instead, I choose to celebrate the greatness that was and is the King of Pop. Thus, I’d love you all to join me in celebrating the best that he offered to us over many of our lifetimes:

No tears, just joy at the wonderful gift of music that he shared with the world through the best of his tunes.
