Rob Kardashian Is Speaking But Are We Listening

We all know, if we care or not, that Kim and Kanye were married last weekend in an elaborate wedding ceremony in Paris, France. I'm not going to talk about any of it here. My concern is not with what Kim and Kanye wore, who was there and how eloquent the decorations were. My concern is and always have been since I noticed him externally expressing what is on the inside is with Robert Kardashian.

I'll be honest, I have not been keeping up with the Kardashians since 2013, but during that time when I found myself glued to the television every Sunday night, I noticed Rob displaying a call for help. To find yourself as the only son in the mist of women who have built successful careers in the spotlight (even Kylie and Kendall have successful careers), it appeared that Rob was left to figure himself and things out on his own. It's very clear to me that he lost himself in the mist of it all.

A Little Red White And Blue

It may not be the Fourth of July just yet, but you can still feel patriotic with this ensemble. What I like most about this look is how comfortable this Ipanema jersey dress seems to flow. Add in some pops of color with a red patent leather open toe pump, lippy and a neon bag like the Marc Jacobs one shown here and you're ready to end your work week and start your weekend on a casual, yet flirty note.

Having A Carrie Bradshaw Moment Over Badgley Mischka

I now know the love Carrie felt for her stilettos in Sex and the City. I could never relate, but now I do. These beautiful, mouth watering Badgley Mischka's are a dream come true. I could see these as the perfect wedding accessory - the detailing makes it so, that you would want to wear them for a least a good month after you say I do, overlooking the fact that your feet are in sheer pain. These are a pair of shoes you wouldn't mind paying a pretty penny for. Why? Just look at them! They are simply gorgeous! Gasp! Swoon!

A Spring Fling With Pure Ice Nail Polish

About a week or two ago, I went on a mini make-up shopping spree in search of new lip stick which I found at Target with the Maybelline brand. If you haven't read the post, click here. Anyway, that mini shopping spree didn't end with just lipstick. Without much intention of going to look for nail polish, I just kinda ended up in Walmart glazing over the vibrant colors of nail lacquer that made me wish I could purchase them all. But I behaved and only saw fit to purchase five Pure Ice nail  polish colors that made me feel like my love affair with spring was about to get started.

Where Do We Start To Bring Back Our Girls

The story of over 200 Nigerian school girls who are still missing after being kidnapped from their school on April 14th, is heartbreaking. I'm sure many of you have seen the images and hash tags like the one above posted across all social media platforms in an effort to do something...anything to bring these girls safely home.

Racism Is Very Much Alive In 2014

Okay, so the hot topic item this week (aside from serial dater, George Clooney's engagement) is all about the soon to be "former" owner of the LA Clippers, Donald Sterling and his nasty display of racism. I wasn't going to do a post at all about this, but what moved me to share my opinion is the realization that racism still exists. It's not only scary, but disappointing that there are people walking around today who feel like other races, not just African Americans are beneath them. That we are the scum of the earth pretty much and would probably give a seething, rabies infected dog a bone before they would help someone who looks like me across the street.

Lipstick Love With Maybelline

Last week, during one of my many weekly Target visits (yes, I'm in Target more than twice a week, even if it is just to walk around and look - but I never always just look, I always end up buying something), I took a trip down the makeup aisles and landed in front of the Maybelline display case. Purchasing new lipstick was on my mental list of things to do for the past few weeks and since I was face to face with not only beautiful, but colorful options, that day was as good as any to scratch this purchase off my list.
