New Video: Nicki Minaj "Moment For Life" Plus Fashion

Ms. Minaj gave me "Cinderella" in her turquoise crystal goddess gown from The Blonds’ Spring 2011 collection. I was pleasantly surprised by this outfit. Although she tamed it all the way down for this video, she still gave me fashion!

Kevin Hart On "Lopez Tonight"

Kevin was on "Lopez Tonight" last week and even George couldn't stop laughing...


Kevin Hart makes me laugh so hard it's disgusting!
I tried to eat lunch and watch this... FAIL. I just had to put the food down and finish laughing!
I love a good comedian... Bernie Mac, Monique, Kym Whitley, Katt Williams, Cedric The Entertainer, Dave Chapelle, Mike Epps... all  of them!
Nothing soothes my soul like a good laugh. 
If you havent seen his latest "Seriously Funny" DVD, you're missing out. 
It is pure comedy!


Naomi Campbell Looks Amazing In Feb 2011 ELLE Russia

The forever beautiful Naomi Campbell is covering the Feb. 2011 issue of Elle Russia.
Did I mention that Naomi is my mother, she just let's me stay in Brooklyn to avoid the media attention :-)
Juuuussttt Kidding!
I wonder if her covering the Russian issue doesn't have anything to do with her sexy Russian beau?
Off course not *wink wink*
I tried to find the interview but there is no sign of it on the internet yet.

A Little Sunday Encouragement: Reflect On Your Past To Be Clear About Your Future

I am a “chronic reminiscer”.
Sometimes I like to sit and think about my past to reflect on where I’ve come from and what I’ve overcome. I do this in order to remember WHY I have set the goals that I have. I do it to remember my PURPOSE because the greatest tragedy in life is not death, it is life without purpose.

I think that people always have their eyes on the prize, that’s fair, but the saying
“You can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been”
 is so true.
How do you know where you’re going if you don’t know your past?
 Whether it's good or bad, we must always take a look at what we’ve experienced in order to move ahead and progress.
"Those who are unaware of history are destined to repeat it."- George Santayana

Art Is Subject To Perception

I always save images to my computer that spark some inspiration.
To be art is one of the most intersting things because anything can be thought of as "art".
I pulled some of the ones I had on my computer to share with you!
Hope you like them!

One of my favs because of my love for dance.


Throwback Thursday: TLC "Waterfalls"

I LOVED anything that was TLC. The Crazy, Sexy, Cool album was my favorite... even more than the Fanmail album.
Although there were many songs on the Crazy, Sexy, Cool album that I liked, Waterfalls was such a powerful song.

Enjoy your Throwback Thursday joint:

Chanel "Paris-Byzance"

I was surfing the web one day and came by these Chanel "Paris-Byzance" backstage shots.
I thought they were gorgeous... 

The collection comes from Coco's love of Byzantine-style jewelry.
Ensemble after ensemble dripping with gemstones. 

This was such a pretty shot!

What I Want: YSL Rouge Volupté

YSL has a line of lipsticks called Rouge Volupté and boy am I in lust!

The colors look like they just POP out of the tubes!

Not only are the colors vibrant but the gold cases just scream "ooo la la" to me!

*Cue Drake Ft. Swizz Beats "Fancy"*

The site desribes the lipsticks as such:
"Each signature shade saturates lips in captivating color that’s intensely pigmented, and imparts an irresistible glossy shine. The long-lasting, comforting formula is highlighted with a unique Color-shine Complex that leaves lips visibly smoother, plumper and more radiant. Light, silky texture smoothes on a veil of satiny, sensual color that’s altogether alluring . Companion mirror on top of case ensures easy application any time. SPF 15."
Blah, blah, blah! You had me at hello YSL.
With the gold tubes and LUSH colors, they could have said:
"Our lipsticks are the shit. Period."
And I would have been sold!
If i get around to buying some, I will definitely do a post.

What do you think of the YSL Rouge Volupté? Has anyone used it?

A Little Sunday Encouragement: What Are You Waiting For?

When it comes to our dreams, what are we waiting for?
Are we waiting for it to just "happen" magically on its own?
Maybe we're waiting for "a sign"...
A hint...
A cosimic PUSH!

Well, more than likely folks, this will not happen on its own.
You must go out there and pursue your dreams as much as you need to to make it happen.
Fear can hold you back from your dreams more than you know. Don't let these few years on earth slip by you, go for whatever it is that you want.
Life is truly too short.

Jay-Z has quoted one of my favorite lines:
"They say the brave don't live forever but the cautious don't live at all."

So true.
Live people. LIVE!

Live. Love. Laugh

Never let it be said that the ever amazing Beyonce is lazy.

As you all already know, I "caught the fever" with my Heat gift set so I am excited to see what she will give us next.
Apparently this new version, which is scheduled to hit stores next month, is a lighter daytime scent.

My First Blogger Award: The "Stylish and Versatile Blogger's Award"

I have gotten my first "Blog Award" The "Stylish and Versatile Blogger's Award" to be exact. Too cool!
I'd like to thank God! My mama!
*Dramatically wipes tears*
Most of all, YOU!

Lol, juuuuussstttt KIDDING!

But really, thanks to YNC Lounge for the award.

Now, I'm not sure how this really works but I have been given some guidelines so bare with me.
Here are the rules :
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know that they have won.

Easy Enough... I think.

7 Things About Sherine, the "City Girl":
1. I'm a city girl... DUH! Lol I live in NYC, Brooklyn to be exact.

2. Although I am a city girl, I love to travel. My parents are from the Caribbean so when I was born, I was blessed with the opportunity to live there and go to school there as a child. I think there is something amazing about living on an island.

3. I go off on tangents... A LOT. I always have something to say, it's like I can't shut up! My mother says as a child I talked to any and everybody. Guess that's why I'm so friendly.

4. I love cultures. I love to read about them, experience them... EVERYTHING. I love trying different foods, clothes, hairstyles, music, and more from other cultures. Before I die, I want to experience, first hand, Japanese and Indian culture. I will own a Kimono and Sarii!

5. I have a tough exterior but as you have probably noticed from reading my blog, I cry a lot in private! All my friends think it's hilarious when I say "yeah girl, I cried." I get crickets... then laughter... followed by a series of "YEAH RIGHT GIRL"s. They just never believe me when I say I cry and I refuse to cry infront of them to prove a point.

6. I am a college student (Majoring in: Media and Communication Arts- Public Relations and Advertising Minoring in: English- Creative Writing) and i'm in my last semester of my undergrad experience! This is probably the most exciting thing ever because, right now, I am SO tired of school! I've been in school for 20 years and I am OVER it (I started school when I was 2 back in Grenada).
SIDEBAR: Stay in school kids, it's important!

7. This list wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention that I am a singer (click to visit my Youtube channel). I have been for the greater part of my life. I've always been in choirs and I waent to Fiorello H. LaGuardia Music and Art and The Performing Arts (aka the FAME school) for vocal. I aspire to have a professional career but right now, getting out of school is the motive.

And now, I hereby award the following bloggers:
Chic Therapy
Fashion Me Chic
Coco's Tea Party
Reserverade fashion
For The Love Of Fashion And Other Things
Zarna's Runway
Gorgeous Puddin's Ponderings
Vanity is an addiction
Malibu Mara 
the audacity effect
Fashion Rehab
Stylished Forever

If I didn't tag you this time around, sorry! I didn't mean to! I will tag new people anytime I get a new blog award :-)

The songstress performed an acoustic version of her hit single ‘Do It Like A Dude’.

A Little Sunday Encouragement: Watch Me Do Me

Today's Sunday Encouragement is about “doing you”.

For the most part, the people in our lives are supportive and amazing. They love us, they care about us, and they are there for us when we need them the most.

But… there are a handful of people that we encounter who don’t support our dreams. They silently, or not so silently, try to discourage you from pursuing your goals.

I know from personal experience, there have been people in my life who have said “why are you doing this? You won’t succeed at it. Just do THIS. Do the ‘norm’ and you’ll be happy.”
Well to those people, I’ve always said:

“No thanks, I’ll keep doing it my way. Watch me do me.”

As hard as it is to not be a “people pleaser”, I promise not caring will be the most fulfilling experience.
When we care, we hold ourselves back. Don’t hold yourself back from your DREAMS, your ASPIRATIONS.
You can really do whatever you want to do if you put your mind to it.
The first and last step is believing in YOU.

Once you do that, all people will be forced to do is watch you do you.

Love. Live. Laugh.

Boxing Kitten's Fabulous S/S 2011

I've been seeing Boxing Kitten around the fashion/music scene for a while now.
So many people have been rocking the designers from Rihanna, to Beyonce, Estelle, Alicia Keys, and Solonge just to name a few.

The lines vibrant colors and African inspired prints are what drew me to it. They are sexy, feminine, and yet very wearable and comfy. I'm guessing with a name like Boxing Kitten, you have to be wearable yet sexy.

I love to look unique and Boxing Kitten does just that!

While her Resort 2010 line was inspired by Ms. Josephine Baker, the Spring 2011 collection, the inspiration came from Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, a 1965 film by Russ Meyers about three go-go dancers who love fast cars, sex and violence.

Sounds interesting right?

Everything from this collection is freaking sexy! The peplum dress is by far my favorite!

Check out the rest of the Boxing Kitten S/S 2011 collection here.


MAC Cosmetics Introduces: Wonder Woman

For all my makeup lovers, I discovered a wonderful piece of information...
MAC Cosmetics will be releasing a new line called "Wonder Woman"!
The line launches in the US on February 10, 2011 and internationally in March 2011.
MAC is partnering with the feminine icon to bring us an array of bright lip colors, shadows, glosses and more! 
Just like Wonder Woman, the packaging is just as bright and cunning.
Beautiful eye-popping accessories compliment the bold lipstick tubes and shadow cases.
Check a few of the promo pics...

I've been recently getting into lipstick so i just may have to get one or two of them along with that gold mirror!
Speaking of MAC, i just came from there yesterday and i purchased a new hot pink lipstick... SUPER SEXY! I'll do a pist on it soon.

What do you think of the new line?
