Hair Love | Beyonce New Look


Yasssss Bey! So if you didn’t know, Beyonce debuted her new hairstyle on Instagram with a series of candid photos. This elegant yet edgy short blond cut is something I honestly never expected from B and I am love, love. LOVING everything about it. I hope it’s here to stay! At least for awhile… Yasss Bey chic and stylish as ever!

A Tribute | Ebony Magazine September Issue

Ebony Collage

I am loving this. All of this.

Ebony Magazine pays tribute to Trayvon Martin with it’s September issue by releasing four breathtaking covers featuring African American fathers and sons. Along with Tracy Martin and Jahvaris Fulton (Trayvon’s father and brother), celebrity fathers Boris Kudjoe, Dwayne Wade, and Spike Lee are also featured with their sons.

Ebony invites you to grab a copy of this “groundbreaking” issue where:

you will be informed by the in-depth coverage on the trial and the aftermath, and, most importantly, you will be inspired by the hope for the future that resonates with each page

As a mother of three brown boys I am hoping this is just the beginning of a new dialogue. I will definitely be getting a copy. Probably more than one! What about you?

Peace, Love, & Blessings

My Top 5 Favorite Celebrity Fathers

Keeping in line with celebrating Fathers this week, I thought I’d share with you my top 5 favorite celebrity fathers! Enjoy!


Who doesn’t love Will Smith? Maybe I’m biased because he’s from my hometown. Or maybe it’s because I just took my boys to see After Earth. Or maybe it’s his loving relationship with his kids. Either way, ya’ll know how I feel about my Smiths so of course Will was gonna make my list. And that Jaden is too cute!

Brad Pitt

Two words. Brad Pitt. I love big families so seeing a father strolling down the street with all his kids in tow is my kinda guy. And it takes a special kind of person to adopt children so he gets cool points for that. That and being lucky enough to be with Angelina ( I just think it’s something so refreshing about their family and I love seeing him interact with his kids!


T.I. Ya’ll seen the show right? T.I.’s way of parenting is hilarious to me. I love all his kids and his family reminds me a bit of my own. Again, I love big families and I’ve been on my fair share of road trips, at least 3 children in the backseat, to see Daddy perform so I can relate! I think T.I has a genuinely good relationship with them all and I love watching them interact.


David Beckham. Besides the fact that he’s just so nice to look at *side eye*, he’s another father with a larger family. I especially love his bonding with his boys. Love me some boys…clearly I have 3…so seeing David out with his boys gets me every time! And he’s another one that lucked up in the wife department. Victoria!

Barack & children

Barack Obama. I mean. Seriously. Did you think I was going to have a top 5 celebrity father post and not include POTUS? There isn’t enough room on this post to go in on how much I love the first family. Just know, I do. And I’m proud that our brown children have such a positive example of family, success, and fatherhood.

So there they are! Who am I missing? Who are your favorite celebrity dads?

Peace, Love, & Blessings

Amber Rose Post Preggo Beauty!

Now Queens, I thought I had the magic bounce back but this woman has me beat! Simply gorgeous! I think I need to join a gym…like yesterday!

Amber Rose tweeted this picture of herself on Twitter (@DaRealAmberRose) 3 weeks after giving birth to her first son. Now I don’t know if she has on Spanx, Victoria’s Secret, or she just naturally gifted like that but she looks great!


So Queens, what advice, tips, or tricks do you have to get rid of that baby weight and get that post preggo body looking great?
