Here are a few of my favorite things…I’m all about Karl L, in my eyes everything he touches is gold.  Vogue, perfection, you’ve gotta love a one stop shop for amazing fashion.  Finally, GaGa’s antics always make me smile.  That is all, back to you week end fun C&C readers.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend but who needs friends if you have a rock like this. The Swedish jeweler, Shawish, created this ring cut from a solid 150 karat stone. Stunning! Wish is could get my mitts on it but it’s selling for $68 million. So, I’ll just be reading about it.

Natural Beauty

I am such a sucker for an amazing hair style and as a natural girl myself I always love when women go natural for formal events.  The first step to a breathtaking natural look is a good cut.  Curly hair falls very differently than straight  hair thus needs a special kind of trim.  Next, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.  As I mentioned in a post some time back I use mayonnaise or eggs as a pretreatment.  Then I rinse them out then use Argon oil and a leave in cholesterol.  Also, ladies don’t wash your hair every day, the biggest enemy of natural hair is breakage.  Wash about 2-3 times a week at the most.  I hope these little tips are helpful.

i-D Rather Look at the Pictures!

Lifestyle March 21, 2012

i-D Magazine is one of my favorite publications. The articles are great, blah, blah, blah, but I really love their themed covers. I know we are all enthralled by an eloquently worded treaties on world hunger and a new economy but sometimes we’re just interested in a pretty picture. After all, a picture says 1,000 words. See what these covers say to you.Image
