Yes! Shoes! A girl can never have too many shoes in her closet (or under her bed) and my day has just gotten brighter! Halle Berry is launching a shoe line called...get this...5th Avenue By Halle Berry! Loves it!

The fashionable and fabulous, Gabrielle Union, covers the February 2012 issue of Ocean Drive Magazine. In this issue she dishes on her life in Miami with boyfriend, Dwyane Wade, her career, and having kids.
Twitter has become the go to news source of social networks. C'mon, let's face it. It is what it is. If you want to know about anything worthy of discussing in the media or elsewhere (for that matter), you can almost bet someone in the twitterverse is talking about it and if you can get a celebrity to talk about it...then all the better.

It's Monday and if you're feeling anything like me, you feel revived, fresh, inspired, and bold! There is nothing like coming off the weekend feeling like you can conquer the week ahead and get done the things that need your attention, and what better way to start the week off than by looking fierce!

It's officially the weekend and outside of going to see Red Tails, working on the upcoming issue of Prominence magazine, and putting thought into a few new projects; I will be catching up on reading the February issues of my favorite magazines.
Whatever your plans this weekend, enjoy every second of it and be safe. xoxo
Today is the day! A day that many of us have been anticipating for months...the premiere of Red Tails! I am very excited to not only see this film, but watch the genius that is George Lucas' (who I would love to meet one day) vision come to life on the big screen.

If you've read my previous post on Sally Hansen and how I love the brand, then you'll know that trying their Salon Effects nail polish strips was not that far off. I've always been curious about applying the decorative strips to my nails, but never put any serious effort in to giving it a try...until last night.

The Golden Globes. What I like to think of as the official kick off to awards season, was held last night at the Beverly Hilton to a star studded feast.

Paul Carrick Brunson, also known as the Modern Day Matchmaker, is helping couples to make love work. This time he will be doing it on television on the new Lovetown USA airing on OWN.
Congrats are indeed in order for The Help and their cast. Last night at the 17th Annual Critics Choice Awards their hard work and commitment to their craft paid off.

Last night, the Braxton sisters and WE tv kicked off the year in LA with a dinner and screening of Braxton Family Values at the posh SLS Hotel. Tamar, Trina, Towanda, Traci and mom “Miss E” were their usual gorgeous selves as they dished on their upcoming Braxtons album (featuring Miss E?), Miss Evelyn’s recent engagement, Tamar and Vince’s spin-off, and Trina and Towanda’s marriage drama. Toni was absent, however WE tv president Kim Martin read a statement from the R&B diva, explaining that she’d checked herself into a hospital due to a lupus flare-up, but that she was ok.
If you're wondering if a bidding war for baby Blue Ivy Carter's first photos have started, relax. The war for being the first to publish them have yet to begin, as reported by the New York Post.
Oprah's Next Chapter hits a home run for her television network Own, with the series premiering at 1.1 million viewers on New Years day and the second episode having 1.6 million viewers on Sunday. With these numbers it's safe to say...she's back!
I absolutely love this time of year! It's awards season and if you are like me you love to be front and center to catch it all from the fashion, the couples, the winners (and losers), and the deets on the swanky after parties. Yep, it's the time of year when Hollywood is on fire and our favorite shows, movies, musicians, and celebrities are celebrated for their dedication and hard work.

This weekend a lot went down. As if the birth of precious Blue Ivy didn't clog up the twitterverse, time still kept on a tickin and the NBC Universal 2012 Winter TCA Press Tour All-Star Party was on and poppin.
Social media. It is what it is or sometimes it is what it aint ( I know "aint" is not a word, but it just helps my point to flow better). If you have a pulse you know social media networks like Facebook and Twitter have practically changed the way the world communicates. It also opens the door for exposure and for people who don't know any better to openly give their personal information in a post like we live in a world full of daises and sunflowers.
If you found yourself glued to your television set over the weekend watching The Game marathon on BET, then you are not alone. The popular television sitcom will premiere its fifth season on Tuesday and the anticipation is building for what is expected to be another milestone in television ratings.

Love is in the air and well...I'm inspired! Gabrielle Union and her beau, Miami Heat Guard, Dwyane Wade cover the February issue of Essence magazine. I love these two together.
Issue on newsstands January 12th!
|My 2012 vision journal|
I love creating vision boards. I have been creating them every year for the past three years now. Earlier this week I was catching up on my blog reading and read a post on Love Brown Sugar where she shared a few of her readers vision boards. There were two that stood out to me; they were vision journals.
One of my goals this year for Media & Stilettos is to spotlight women who are making IT happen, so I created the "She's Making IT Happen" feature. This weekly feature focuses on a woman who stepped out on faith to follow her heart in making her dreams come true. I'm a strong believer in how we all have the power to inspire each other and by reading someone's story who is brave enough to make IT happen can in turn inspire us. So without further adieu, I introduce you to Masha Dowell!
This looks says it all. It says sexy, successful, confident, and daring. I love wearing clothes that are versatile enough that you can wear them to the office or for a night out on the town.

Well ladies, it looks like we will again have our chance to purchase designer duds at discounted prices at the fabu Targe'. If you were one of thousands who swarmed Target to wrap your fashionable fingers around the Missoni collection, then I'm pretty sure this recent collaboration will have you doing the same.

When the preview of Safe House came on, everything, everyone, and any conversation I was having at the time came to an abrupt stop as my feelings of why I love films came rushing over me like cold water.
To be a celebrity and to attach your name to a product to build your brand in to a household name is...well...genius. If I was a celebrity I would put my name on everything from Tupperware to dental floss (hey...don't judge me). Some who don't understand the dynamics of branding will never understand the power of it and how it can help create a legacy that will forever be around long after you're gone.
Sigh! We should all know by now that we live in a very sensitive society and if we are involved in or with the media anything that is said runs the chance of being taken the wrong way and torn apart only to be put back together misconstrued. Sad, but true.
After a long season hiatus, BET's The Game, returns January 10th at 10P/9C. For those of you who have been committed and loving fans of the popular sitcom since it originally aired on the CW, you are in for a treat this season with twists and turns coming from all angles that is sure to leave you surprised and wanting more.
I grew up hearing Diana Ross' voice come from the radio speakers or seeing her sway and give it her all on stage. After watching Mahogany for the first time, I was convinced this lady who is lovingly known as "The Boss" is a legend. This photo captured her class, poise, style, and grace. Simply beautiful.

Happy New Year!! I hope you all enjoyed the 2011 holiday season with friends and family and will forever hold dear the memories that were made. If you are feeling like me, you are well rested, recharged, and ready for what 2012 has in store.
