BET Centric Sip & Share ‘Single Ladies’ A Beyond Brunch Experience [RECAP]

Letoya Luckett

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending an event for the television series “Single Ladies” titled Sip and Share: A Beyond Brunch Experience. The show returned on March 18th to Centric, the first network designed for black women. Spring was definitely in full effect with the decor to the attendees’ style of dress. “Single Ladies” cast member Letoya Luckett and Head Costume Designer on the show Anthony Williams were the panelist for this event and boy did they entertain the crowd. Letoya Luckett is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and THE Anthony Williams is crazy, cool, and so over the top amazing. Their discussion included how African American women are taking Hollywood by storm in more roles, sisterhood, as well as Letoya’s initial reaction to being subjected to Anthony’s decision to keep her character in black and white until he says otherwise. Attendees were also showcased for their style choices for the event during a style segment curated by the awesome Michaela Angela Davis. Here are some photos from the event:

June Ambrose Links Up w/ Jay-Z’s the “Life + Times” For New Show “Style Boost”

june and the intern contest winnerOur favorite fashionista who Jay-Z refers to as “the Style Architect” will grace us with a show once again titled Style Boost. Although we loved her debut to television on Styled By June, June felt as though it just wasn’t the right fit for her. In her chat with Brandice Henderson, CEO and founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row, you can get all the deets in the series titled “Conversations.” (harlemsfashionrow.com/) I’m sure all the style socials out there can’t wait to see what the show will entail. What would you like her to talk about? I would like to know the logistics into landing a spot as an intern not so much for the fashion of it all but the business side of it. I want the goods to her business development. So proud to see June blossom. She’s such an inspiration to all those woman that grind it out daily. She cooks, takes care of business, picks up the kids when she can, and even finds time to spend those precious moments with her husband and kids. She’s truly a¬†renaissance¬†woman. I geniuenly adore this woman. Can you tell? LOL

Check out some of June’s Style and her craziness via her YouTube Channel. She says “the only thing I’m finding at this Prada sample sale is overpriced leftovers lol! Love her.

June is definitely doing her thing and so can you. Go Get Your Dreams!!! XO

Ladies and Gentleman…Kerry Washington!

uptown-kerry-washington-decjan13-4aMy post for Ms. Washington is long overdue, BUT I’m here to show my love for her. Enjoy ūüôā

Lady of the moment, Kerry Washington, has everyone talking about her. To some she is a breath of fresh air and to others the greatness they knew she had the potential to be. Ms. Washington started out with very humble beginnings as a young actress in the TADA! Youth Theater program and now everyone’s favorite mistress on ABC’s hit drama “Scandal”?! Yea I said it lol.¬† Kerry’s acting is everything BUT to the fashionistas out there, her wardrobe is to die for and worth discussing.

According to Scandal Costume Designer , Lyn Paolo, Olivia Pope’s wardrobe¬† was put together to adhere to typical closet behavior. Meaning, everything Olivia Pope wears isn’t “thrown away” after each episode however, a piece of clothing is worn again with another bottom or blouse. I love this aspect because it makes Olivia Pope that much more real to us. Lyn Paolo states in the interview that they use particular color schemes that fall in sync with Olivia’s mood (genius!). I think we all agree that we want to be Olivia Pope in some way or another. She’s fierce in her work and always dresses to the nines. I’d take a substitute love life though lol¬†Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I have provided a few of my personal favorite ¬†looks from the show! Enjoy XO ūüôā

Inspired by this article? Things you can do to be among these fabulous women!

1. First ask yourself, ¬†“Is this what I want?”-¬†No need to waste your time or anyone else’s if you’re not going to take it seriously. If you answer yes, then don’t hold back. Give it everything you’ve got!

2.Intern– start your career off by learning from people or organizations that may in return hire you

3. Get active– start a blog, make a video…you just need to do something. What’s the point of talent if you never showcase it?

4. Network– fear has no room in this arena. Either you want it or you don’t. You have to start the conversation about your dreams with someone if you want to get connected to the right people to make it happen. I’m not saying tell everyone your dreams because people will try and discourage you. You just have to discern those who are for you and those who are against you.

[VIDEO] Where I’m From: JAY Z Barclays Center Documentary

jay z

Don’t we all just love to love Jay-Z?! He has one of the hottest females in music on his arm and his story is just amazing. You can easily try and box Jay as your typical rags to riches story; however, he just doesn’t fit that mold. He is consistent in bringing you his very best; nevertheless, he always out does himself each time(Pay attention I said HIMSELF! no need to compare). What I admire the most about him is he never forgets to give back.¬†Jay is a great example for going for those dreams you have. Don’t let circumstance be a reason you don’t go get what you want.¬†The video I am posting to today from Jay’s YouTube channel is his journey to bringing his latest project to life, The Barclays Center. Jay-Z put this phenomenal structure in the middle of Brooklyn (It’s so Right). He brought jobs to people and the chance to enjoy something worth celebrating. Congrats Jay-Z!!

My favorite part is when he decides to take the subway and takes a seat next to the precious old lady. Check it out!

Well as I was watching some videos on YouTube, and I ran across a video of Kandi Burruss discussing the importance of money management. She gave some very sound advice to young adults about credit and why it is so important.

Oh and she also states how their is no need to front when you don’t have it!

I hope no one’s going broke trying to keep up with the Joneses…
