Motivation Monday: Life Update!

update2

It's been WAYYYYYYYY too long since I've written a Motivation Monday post, so instead of giving you all of the fluff I'll just tell you what's been up. 1. Work- This year I had a lot more demands with work that occupied a lot of my time. I will have some of those same responsibilities, but with a more flexible schedule this September. 2. School- In about four weeks I will have completed my 2nd Masters program. I had a year long internship (at work), which consumed a lot of my time, so as of August, I will have a lot more time to dedicate to the blog. That's mainly it. My graduate school program has been extremely intense and I am almost at the finish line.

2014 BET Awards Top 4 Looks from the Red Carpet

The BET Awards Red Carpet was a little uneventful for me. First of all, 90% of the women showed up in white gowns. I understand that it is hot and all out in LA, but there was really no variation of color or dress style. Here are my top 4 looks from the red carpet. Eva Marcille (she just had a baby a few months ago and she looks amazing!) Amber Rose has this classic look that I love. It is not over done like some women. She kept it classy and simple. I'm not a huge fan of Adrienne Bailon, but I am a fan of Michael Costello and he was the designer of this gown. Regina Hall did something a little different in a white pants suit. I'm loving the short bob! Now two looks that I didn't particularly care for come from two very talented young women, Keke Palmer and Sevyn Streeter. So I was watching the news one day and they did this entire segment on something called "Pevage" which is … [Read More...]
