Met Gala 2015 Glamorous Recap and Photos

Fashion lovers everywhere witnessed the glamour, creativity, and art of The Met Gala 2015 or formally known as the Costume Institute Gala.  Celebrities showed up wearing intricate designs and show stopping hats while music artists were seen wearing sheer gowns.

This year’s theme was China: Through The Looking Glass which was based upon a document.  The annual fundraising event attracted entertainers and fashion industry professionals; purchasing a ticket to support the Metropolitian Museum of Art Costume Institute.  Although this night was amazing in it’s own right, there’s always a memorable moment!

My favorite costume of the night goes to the lovely and talented Beyonce.  Her dress was show stopping, appropriate according to the theme (loving her high ponytail) and it was detailed couture.  My least favorite selection came from Gabrielle Union.  Unfortunately, her dress did not exemplify the theme of the event and appeared to be a winter gown.  I love Gabby (and hubby) but I’m hoping they will do better next year.  She has a fabulous body and would like to have a designer create a gown for her figure.

Honorable mention goes to Blake Lively, Solange Knowles, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, and Jennifer Lopez.  The ladies listed did it just right and added a special touch of whimsy to the evening!

The Pearl Source – Style Options for Wearing Pearls

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s the perfect time to start your gift selection.  Whether it’s showing love to your mom or a romantic date, gifting a beautiful strand of pearls can bring a smile to anyone’s face.

I adore pearls because they’re simple, chic, and elegant.  A beautiful strand of pearls can be worn a variety of ways.  If you’re striving for a simple style, wear pearls with a business suit, blouse, or cashemere sweater.  Another option for a hip look is wear to pearls with a chambray top or leather jacket; and of course there’s always the traditional option of wearing pearls with a gown.  The point is that pearls can be worn to dress up or dress down depending on your personal style.

Pearls and Chambray Shirt


Don’t forget to consider the length of your necklace in terms of the neckline and the size of your wrist (for bracelets.)  One never wants to look fashionable and their pearl bracelet keeps sliding or risk losing a family heirloom.

According to Jackie Kennedy, “Pearls are always appropriate.”  Visit The Pearl Source for exquisite pearls at an affordable price.

Motions Hair Care Products – Official Hair Care Sponsor for Think Like A Man Too

Think Like A Man Too came out in theaters today and I am looking forward to seeing this movie.  All of the characters are hilarious and who doesn’t love to watch Kevin Hart on the big screen.


To my surprise and excitement, Motions was the official hair care sponsor for the movie.  I was one of the lucky bloggers to receive a package filled with a plethora of new products.  And honestly, every product that was sent smells heavenly and has done wonders for my tresses!


Because my hair is natural (4B texture to be exact) I have a difficult time finding quality products that hydrate and grow my hair.  Although I love being a naturalista, I don’t consider myself to be a product junkie because once I find something that works, I generally stick with that item.

Since receiving the products, I have loved using them and my favorites out of the bunch are the Shine Enhancing Pomade, Deep Conditioning Masque, Define My Curls Creme, and Radiating Hair Gloss.  In addition to sending products, I also received a personal style card  from Rihanna’s hair stylist, Ursula.

Once my hair grows a bit more, I will share photos.  I hope that everyone will start their “sexy” summer by seeing the movie and try out the wonderful new hair care products from Motions.

Art of Henri Body Chain – Summer Trend

One look that’s seems to be here to stay this summer are…body chains. They first appeared on sexy celebrities like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus in 2012, but now have turned up in the Louis Vuitton’s 2015 Cruise collection. No matter what your thoughts are on a wisp of gold to wrap around your core, looks like they’ll be a staple this summer.


A body chain is the best way to secure jewelry to your body at the beach, decorate your mid-drift when you wear a crop top (demonstrated by Kate Hudson on the streets of New York) or add a little edge and sparkle to a LWD or LBD at night. LA-based jewelry house, Art of Henri, has some fantastic options to add to your jewelry closet. Known for their belief in the energy of metals and stones, these body chains would seem to provide a certain armor in an everyday or night look. The chain is decorated with Cubic Zirconium stones, said to promote spirituality, self-confidence and physical strength and victory, set in sterling silver plated in Black Rhodium or 24 karat yellow gold ($234.00;
