Don't Dream it's Over....

Hello heartbreakers! I hope you are having a  "fantastical" weekend! I decided to talk about romance for a change. Well, by romance I mean the string of shocking divorce announcements that have recently occurred.  Some of the hottest celebrity "it" couples have been calling it quits lately. And I'm not talking about people who pulled a Kim Kardashian, I'm referring to couples who seemed like they were truly going to make it as naive as that sounds. You know...the ones who seemed normal and stable. First there were whispers of Jada and Will ending their marriage.

This is probably the most "shock worthy" break up and it hasn't even officially happened yet! For months, these two have denied rumors that they were headed for splitsville. Something some "insiders" say was caused by their differing opinions on how to raise their children(career-wise).  They have publicly denied divorce claims, but a new insider now claims Jada has moved out of their home this week and into her brother's house. The "insider" says the two A- listers are trying to end things slowly so the kids don't get hurt in the process. A divorce announcement should be coming any day now...ugh!

In other news...

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher  threw in the towel a few weeks ago...officially.  After spending months fighting off rumors that Ashton was having an affair with multiple young women. As it turns out, he was and Demi has now gone all "cray cray." She's now battling anorexia and doing "whip-its." Meanwhile, Ashton is out partying with every young groupie he can get his hands on....smh. I just can't!

And let's not forget the California girl herself...

 Katy Perry said goodbye to hubby Russell Brand. News of their divorce recently made headlines too. I must admit, I thought they were a strange pair from the start. I don't really take him to be the kind of guy that likes women. But they seemed strangely happy together, so I thought they just might make it. What a shame!

Heidi Klum and Seal also pulled a shocker when they announced their split last week.
 I would say this was the 2nd most shocking divorce of them all. I mean, people LOVEEEE Heidi and Seal together, and their story was so romantic and sweet. They seemed generally very happy. But looks can be deceiving. Too bad there's no happy ending, or isssss there?? Oddly, this divorce announcement comes just in time for seals new album release lol. He's been milking the situation and doing interviews all this week too! Part of me wonders if this is just a publicity stunt. But I don't see them being the kind of couple that would go that low. You never know...anything is possible in hollyweird! 

And lastly, here's another divorce that was pre-announced this week. Meaning the couple hasn't actually filed yet, but sources say the odds of a divorce announcement soon are looking HELLA good.  According to Star Magazine, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are ending their 10 year marriage because Gwen can no longer trust him.

I can't blame her. Throughout their marriage, he's revealed  tons of  secrets. Two years into their marriage, Gwen found out Gavin had a secret child(who was almost a freaking teenager by the time the secret came out). Her name is Daisy Lowe and she is now old enough to be in Playboy 23 years old.

In 2009 another big secret came out of the closet. It was revealed that Gavin carried on a long affair with a fellow by the name of Peter Robinson (who looks a lot like Gwen in my opinion).

Gavin admitted to the affair and Gwen decided to stay by his side. But the latest "secret" came out in 2010 when Courtney Love admitted in an interview with Howard Stern that Gavin cheated on Gwen with her and multiple women for years!  Seriously, who hasn't slept with this guy ???  I don't blame you Gwennie. Leave him and head straight to the clinic for some lab tests  do what is best for you!

So what's the moral of the story? Hollywood marriages just weren't meant to last. There's always a scandal, groupie, or better PR opportunity waiting around the corner. And the happier the couple seems in public, the more they are hiding.

Get it Twisted: Turban Time!

Okay ladies(and gents) I have to confess, I have a new obsession. At the moment  I have an  uncontrollable attraction to turbans. That's right, I have been bitten by the "turban loving" bug. Now that I have yarn braids, I sooooo want to try rocking a turban with them. My only worry is that I will end up looking like I'm tying my hair up for bed instead of looking like a fierce Nubian queen lol. We shall see! I will let you guys know when I try one...and there will be tons of pics. I can't wait to "get it twisted" via a fierce and funky turban.

Anywho, turbans have been creeping into the fashion scene for about a year now. The style has even made it's way onto the runway for major fashion shows and Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP) wore one in the most recent Sex and the City movie. However, I don't think the major fashion shows, SJP, and etc have done the style justice. Please see the horrendous evidence below.

The turban can be a hit or miss. I think SJP, and many of the "trendy" celebs make the trend look silly and costume-like. In my opinion, it looks best (and effortless) on women who already have a certain amount of  chic in a natural and earthy way (if that makes any sense). It's hard to explain, but you have to have a certain essence in order to pull it off. Otherwise, you will end up looking like you are going to a Halloween party. Either that, or a fortune teller at the local fair! And I don't know anyone who wants to look like they are trying too hard. Fashion should accentuate what we have going on naturally. So if you try a turban, and it looks like you are dressed as a character - the look is probably not for you. Here's another example of a turban gone wrong.

But when the turban is done right, it looks breath taking! For example, Solange Knowles has been rocking them for quite some time now and she is one of my personal favs. She makes it look so effortless!  I love her style in general though, and she might be my favorite fashionista at the moment. She can wear the turban with something dressy and conservative or just throw on a pair of blue jeans and a tank top and still make the head wrap look flawless.

Others who got it right...


What do you say kinky ladies & gents, is the turban trend hot...or not?

My Yarn Braid Pictures!

So, a few months or so ago I stumbled across a video about this hair style called yarn braids. Prior to that, I had no clue what yarn braids even were lol. Basically, they are braids that look like dread locs. They are temporary though, and you can wash them like you would your hair. Yarn braids are also commonly referred to as "Genie Locs" as well. I've been thinking for a while now, that it would be nice to try some longggg and thick "Janet Jacksonesque" box braids. So... I finally gave in and made the commitment via yarn braids. It took me 17 hours to braid my hair. I spent 8 hours one night doing the top half, and 9 the next night doing the back half. I wanted to try some color as well, so I decided to add a bold pop of blue in the back. I was inspired by fellow Youtuber "shewillbe" to try this style. I love it! I love the look it gives and the fact that I am trying something new. Most of all, I am proud that I did it myself! I have never braided my hair before, and never knew I could do this on my own. But thanks to Youtube tutorials, anything is possible.  I will be posting more blogs and videos soon with details on how I actually braided my hair, so stay tuned for that. For now, please just enjoy my slide show of lovely pictures showing off my great work. Toodles!
