Now that I have steady income again I have been shopping and rebuilding my wardrobe. I look at tons of fashion blogs and follow some amazing plus size divas on Instagram (FOLLOW ME ON IG!) so I can keep up with what's hot.
I was scrolling through Baller Alert and saw the sneak peak they posted of the Fall 2013 shoe collection by Giuseppe Zanotti. I have no idea when I'll actually purchase a pair of Giuseppe's but I know I will on day. *Fingers crossed* So, I'm doing a little browsing in the mean time. The top pair are my favorites. Which one is yours?
|I could definitely see myself wearing these with a cute outfit for Fourth of July.|
|My least favorite...|

The folks over at Bossip didn't have anything nice to say about Jasmine D. Thomas. She's the author of the urban fiction romance When A Diva's Fed Up and girlfriend to rapper, Meek Mill.
Jasmine made her rounds on the gossip blogs after she tweeted pics of a Bentley that Meek bought her. She had the car on the lawn of what looked like the projects and was just being real extra in some of the pics. Note: These pics are from March. I have no idea what the deal is between Jasmine and Meek but I'm gonna assume they're still together. Here are a few pics. For more check out the SOURCE. Do you think she was way too ghetto? Or is she just the proud owner of a new Bentley?

I am so in love with Scarface. He is by far one of the top five rappers in hip hop history and is a legend in the game. He's been thorough a lot over his 20+ year career and has signed with It Books Publications to publish the book. The release is set for fall of 2014 along with a new album. Here's what Mark Chait, the editor who acquired the book, had to say:
More than just an autobiography, it’s an eloquent take on the whole story of rap, but from a Southern perspective. Scarface was a 70s baby growing up in Houston when two new things swept into town – hip-hop and crack – that would change him and kids like him forever. He was there from the beginning and there would certainly be no T.I.,Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Master P, etc., if it wasn’t for him. And Benjamin, formerly of Vibe and Billboard, knows more about Southern rap than any other writer.
I know that I will be checking for the book when it comes out. Will you?

Tionna published her first book titled Girl, Get Your Mind Right! in 2007 which landed her jobs with Gawker and Radar Online as a relationship expert columnist. This helped build buzz and sales for Girl, Get Your Mind Right! and caught the attention of execs at VH1.
Fast forward to today and Miss Smalls has become an official boss chick and mogul. Not only has her publishing company, Talk Dat Ish Books, signed book deals with Neffe Pugh (Keyshia Cole's sister) and Tashera Simmons (DMX's ex-wife) but she has her own jewelry boutique and brand new show on MTV named after the book that started it all.
Girl, Get Your Mind Right the TV show premiers on MTV on May 20th at 6pm. It will be a daily, half hour show that pinpoints women's dating flaws and helps them fix them. Tionna Smalls has made history, too. Her show is the very first show in MTV history to show daily and is produced by and starring a black woman.
I love Tionna Smalls. She is one of the women entrepreneurs I look to as an inspiration. I'm am so happy for her and proud of the big moves she's making. I will be tuned in on the 20th for this one. Will you? Check out the trailer:
