Spring has Sprung

While spring has officially sprung – we here in the city have been relegated once again to our heavy winter gear with the chill that has set in after a wonderful peek at how nice it can be when sun comes out and the air warms up. One sweet mercy – the remaining ice from the Winter Storm Stella has mostly been melted away.

But enough of my complaints about the weather, besides I’m not that deeply saddened as I have some warmth to look forward to – in my wardrobe anyways. 

An evening with Abercrombie Fitch x Elle Magazine

This past week I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted by Abercrombie & Fitch Elle Magazine and featured blogger Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge.

Held at the brand’s flagship Fifth Avenue location, the event was super exclusive with a guest list that comprised of models, bloggers, fashion fans and bigwigs alike. Guests were checked in at the door and then ushered into the store which was closed to the public for the evening’s festivities, and to the second floor where the main event was taking place, although guests were free to shop the entire store for more amazing finds.

Billboard Awards 2016

Last night musicians and celebrities alike gathered the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada for the annual Billboard Music Awards ceremony. The evening hosted by rapper Ludacris and Singer Ciara was a momentous occasion for many with rapper, The Week’nd earning the most nominations with twenty nods and pop superstar Britney Spears receiving the Billboard Millennium Award.

Golden Globes Review

 

As promised I have gone ahead and completed my review on my favorites from the Golden Globe Awards.

Admittedly, this year has had some of the better styled awards show red carpets, thus far. However, I can honestly say that I was sorely disappointed by some of my all time faves – looking at you Lupita, Jemima Kirke and the queen of slayage…JLo?!      

That Time of Year….

Sigh!

It is one of my favorite times of the year…yes we are fresh off of the reverie of the Holiday Season and New Year’s resolutions but for me I’m getting most excited about…Award Season!!

Let me first start by apologizing for being M.I.A., the past week was a very long one.

For quite sometime now I have been intrigued with award shows and the glamour of it all. I always look forward to seeing which of my favorites have been nominated…and of course like everyone else I can not wait to see who will stun in yet another amazing designer gown/suit or set a new trend a Fashion’s new “it” guy or girl!

Last year on of my all time favorites as Ms. Lupita N’yongo who just did not disappoint!! This year I am looking forward to seeing all of the new trendsetters and which of my favorites will continue to amaze. Over the next few posts I will be doing a recap of my favorites from this season’s show thus far, from The People’s Choice Awards (January 7th) to last week’s Golden Globe Awards (January 11th) and 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, (January 15th), so keep following for all of the juicy details and to give me your take on my choices.
