twilight time is back. yes, ladies and gentlemen, eclipse will be out on the 30th ( thats almost tomorrow). therefore, i found it fitting to post some pics of the eclipse stars. plus, in the one on the bottom, kristen is sporting that side braid i'm crazy about. both look gorgeous in all three images.

this is the look of the summer for me. loose fitting short shorts in pretty prints. i found a blue with white polka dot short at h&m for $17 bucks. i also ordered some easy, breezy rompers from f21. the look is just so blazee blah cool, you know. comfortable and classy. pair it with a round toe 4inch heel or a pair of laidback flats. wear it with a cutesy blouse or a tank top. if you're the daring type, pair it with another pattern for the look du jour. anyway you do it, chances are you won't go wrong.

Braids are bomb! does anyone still say "bomb" anymore?! i actually never did but needed something that began with a "B." anyhow, i digress. i am completely in love with the side braid. it represent elegance and independence. perfect do for the hazy, summer days or fun, lazy nights. most likely, this style can be accomplished with practically any hair type. striking, if i do say so myself...and i do. that will be all!

i've turned into a huge amber rose fan. well since she doesn't do anything in particular, fan may be overstating things. i will say, instead, that i'm an admirer of her bold choices and daring looks. i find the way she has turned nothing into something pretty fascinating. so here she is at a shoot channeling ms. marilyn monroe. tres chic!

this lil one is going to be my new life coach. too freakin' cute!
seriously, there is a lot to learn from this adorable little girl and
i intend to absorb the lesson. whenever i start thinking ilm lacking
because i don't have this or that, i'll remember what she said. i love

keep in mind that "i can do anything good!"

the smith family seemed quite obnoxious, in my opinion. cute but obnoxious. will was okay but thats where it ended. jada was just way too much. tre turned me off during an episode of america's next top model when he was a guest correspondent. i felt he was rude and disrespectful to individuals who were much older. willow? annoying...and there was jaden. what an obnoxious, precocious little self centered boy! later on, i watched the family on oprah and i've learned to appreciate a lot about this family. what impresses me most is that there is a philosophy behind the parenting. there is a family mission, an ultimate goal, that the smiths seem to be aiming for. will and jada (but especially will) were truly inspiring. they had many anecdotes, demonstrating their support and love. for instance, that haircut of willow's just screamed for attention. but after listening and giving it some consideration, i agreed with jada. it seems it was willow's idea to cut it like that and that is intriguing in a world where young girls and women tie their beauty to the length and beauty of their hair. perhaps willow is that confident and self-aware. either way, i doubt i would ever be interested in babysitting the smith clan. however, i have a much better understanding of their behavior and demeanor. above are some pics of them at the karate kid premiere. check the outfits, especially willow's. you can't tell them nothin'!

red lipstick...the most elusive make-up trick for a girl...especially one of a darker persuasion. lately, i've found myself really digging this look for two reasons. #1. its a timeless yet sexy look. #2. i'm a rebel and i don't like being told what i can and cannot wear. so, of course, i sauntered into MAC in search of the perfect shade for me. when i approached an available make-up diva and informed her of my quest, she gave me a look and sigh that said "for you (as in a mocha vixen such as myself)? not gonna happen." then she sent me to look at some extremely watered down shade (almost magenta). instead, after trying on a zillion shades of red on my wrist, i decided to be bold and choose the MAC Red. if it needed toning down, i had a few shades at home that could do the trick. so this summer, i am all about the jet black sharp eye and red lip. i may even attempt it during the day. how ya like me now?!!!
