Hello my loves! I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving! Even though I am a tad against Thanksgiving because the 2nd grade stories you learn aren’t really true, I think it is a good day to just eat and spend time with the ones you love, whether that be family, urban family, lovers, or co-workers. Today is about giving thanks for the privileged lives we live and we should recognize the truth about Native Americans having their lands taken away. Basically, don’t take anything for granted and be grateful for the life you have!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Fashion: Black and White

I’m dreaming in black and white! Wait, I’m not dreaming, I’m just seeing black and white in the season’s fashion trends wherever I go! Pairing black and white together can be as easy as a shirt, jeans, and boots. But there are ways to definitely spice up wearing a black and white ensemble!

Like the girls of the hit reality show The Hills, Audrina Patridge and Kristen Cavallari, wearing all black with a pop is a trendy way to not just be safe wearing all black. The white will draw the eye to that area, so make sure you are confident wearing a white piece. Like these two fashionista, pair a white tunic with a black motorcycle jacket, black jeans, and either black heels or boots. Simplicity is key for this look and you will look so chic!

Another great way to wear all black and white is to add a pop of color somewhere whether it bag, scarf, shoes or piece of jewelry. Usually an accessory is a great way to add color to this look and don’t be afraid of neon colors! They are so in right now! Try these great looks and you too will be dreaming in black and white!

Nail it on Me!

Nail this! Add a little bling to your nails with no jewelry whatsoever! The latest trend in nail polish designs is to paint your nails a solid color then paint one of then with a sparkle nail polish! This usually needs to be done with a couple coat so it stand out but it is worth it! Play with colors as well: if you paint your nails purple, do silver glitter bling nails. If you do a bright pink, pick a pink sparkle polish to do one nail in. Experiment and don’t be afraid of color, you will love the one glitter nail!

Music Buzz: Florence + The Machine “Ceremonials”

Soft soothing sounds of a truly gifted voice burst from the newest album “Ceremonial,” by Florence + The Machine! With cool indie stylized songs, Florence Henderson took music to a whole new level with her deep sorrowful songs of morning contrasted with celebration and splendor. Many of her songs give a feel of inspirations from jazz, blues, and old folk songs such as “Shake it Out,” and “What the Water Gave Me.” Love and loss are intertwined in this composition of songs that describe the trials of relationships in this world and the next. Outdoing herself with her first album “Lungs,” Florence + The Machine has moved to expand her sound and style, one that is easily relatable that reaches across more then festive fields.
Florence + The Machine “Ceremonials,” is available now and is so wonderful to listen to! Go get it now!
