DK, NY, Goodbye

It's been reported on every major fashion site, blog and social media account: Donna Karan is stepping down from her eponymous business conglomerate DKI- Donna Karan International. This is a major shock to the fashion world and American fashion will not be the same without her exquisite eye for style.

A few of my favorite pieces on her site, like, now (I'm all about the stripes this season, and always):

Father's Day

Mi papa es el major del mundo. My dad is the best dad in the world.
El es fuerte. He is strong.
Me hace reir. He makes me laugh.
Me protégé de lo malo. He protects me from the bad.
Se que un dia, el no va estar. I know one day he won’t be around.
Pero le agradesco todo lo que ha hecho por mi. But I appreciate everything that he has done for me.
Ojala que algun dia, yo pueda darler todas las estrellas del universo, por que el me ha dado el mundo. I hope one day I can give him all the stars of the universe because he has given me the world.
Gracias papi. Thank you dad.
Te amo por siempre. I love you forever.

(I think that's me in the pic lol)

Va Va Voom Voom

I usually don’t do this- unless it’s like Beyonce or Angelina Jolie- but I have to give credit where credit is due. And this goes out to Nicki Minaj.

I was reading my Cosmopolitan on the train on my way work today and flipped into Nicki’s article. By the way, she graces the cover of the magazine, looking amazing in 3 separate body suit looks that show off her curvaceous physique. One would see her and think she’s just another (*ahem*) "slore" (whore/slut) of the music industry. (Oh please, act like none of you have heard the rep these girls get/have, especially in such a male dominated genre like rap). But, after reading the article within it dawned on me that there is so much more to Nicki than meets the eye. And, the girl isn’t taking crap from anyone! #Girlpower
Kuddos to Nicki for everything she has accomplished and the best of luck for her forevermore.

Check out my favorite quotes from the article or read the entirety of it here: Nicki Minaj Cosmopolitan. Get your copy of Cosmopolitan today!

Measurements

The size of your body. What progress you've made in X amount of time. How successful you've become in X amount of years. Where you should be in life. All things that we measure to equate to happiness.
But who determined one size fits all?
Who said we have to fit a mold to be happy?
Society throws its measurements onto us and expects us to "go with flow" and "be happy."
How can anyone be happy when they're being compared to another?

Listen to advice and let others help you but don't let someone tell you what your happiness is or what it should be. If you're not harming yourself or others, live your life like you want it.
We've come a LONG way. And by we I mean everyone from all walks of life. Doesn't matter if you're a black female or a gay man or a white little boy or a transgender. You deserve happiness and you deserve to measure life in the way that truly fits you.

Follow your heart to the wonders of the world.

Yum Yum!

Trying to get in shape, I decided to buy supplements and protein powder from IG famous brand, Shredz
So far I absolutely love them and I can feel little muscles developing.
After my workouts, I drink my "Yum Yum" shake (lol).
Recipe:

1. A whole banana
2. 1/2 scoop of Shredz Thermogenic Protein Made for Women
3. 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or any milk, whatever you prefer)
4. 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds
5. 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon (you can use more or less- I overdo it with the cinnamon).
6. Ice cubes (nice and refreshing)

I use my Magic Bullet to blend up until the mixture is a nice smooth consistency and then chug it down! Just kidding- I take my time with it. So yummy!

Have I posted this recipe before? If I have, must be GOOD!

XoXo,

Grown Woman

Ok- let’s get this out there: I do whatever I want… for the most part and especially when it comes to my blog. I’m a one woman show that has a different set of priorities than most bloggers/fashion people. Because I don’t have deadlines or requirements to meet, I do things at my own pace and I post about whatever tickles my fancy. I’m sure Chanel is rolling over in her grave and would probably call me lazy but rest assured idol of mine, I’m working on a lot. In the world of oversharing, I’m trying to maintain a certain magic- the kind of magic found in the few millennials who cared less about selfies and more about actually living in the moment. So excuse me if I’m not posting about Caitlyn Jenner’s magnificent photo shoot with Vanity Fair or Kim Kardashian’s confirmed pregnancy or the amazing 2016 Resort collections (stay tuned for my favorite looks) or gushing about Rihanna’s uber cool, risque style or mentioning today would have been Marilyn Monroe’s 89th birthday… you guys get the picture. 

Oh yeah, and that the CFDA Awards happening tonight. Check out my best dressed here- CFDA 2015.

There’s so much more to my life than fashion/entertainment and KUWK. Obviously.

Be patient with me everyone! I’m working on a few things and I promise to post as often as possible. Thank you for all those who continuously keep up with my blog! I really appreciate it! Sorry for yelling too… (all the extra exclamations, for those who are still recovering from the weekend)   =)

XoXo,
