Throwback Song: Try Again-Aaliyah

R.I.P.

After completing Romeo Must Die, Aaliyah filmed her part in Queen of the Damned. She released her third and final album, Aaliyah, in 2001. On August 25, 2001, Aaliyah and eight others were killed in an airplane crash in The Bahamas after filming the music video for the single “Rock the Boat“. The pilot, Luis Morales III, was unlicensed at the time of the accident and had traces of cocaine and alcohol in his system. Aaliyah’s family later filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Blackhawk International Airways, which was settled out of court. Since then, Aaliyah’s music has achieved commercial success with several posthumous releases. With album sales estimated to be between 24 to 32 million copies worldwide, Aaliyah has been credited for helping redefine R&B and hip hop, earning her the nickname “Princess of R&B“. -wiki

Something Borrowed. Something Blue.

So nothing is borrowed…but the top is blue (and wrinkled…didn’t have time to iron. Sorry?)

Obviously I’m going into the office. Which has a dress code DESIGNED to make you look boring and ordinary. I did the best I could without getting fired:

High waist slacks.

Big Hair. No make up.

Button-back pants…and booty.

messed up sleeve to be fixed before walking out the door…

Peep toe heels. Don’t mind that left (your right) foot, narrow feet end up slipping through the toe hole. Not a good look.

Bow Toe=Sweet feet.

A watch…to show I know what time it is Flavor Flav style.

When I was a Geisha he was a Samurai

(yeah, not me…but showin’ the geisha feel :))

Pants: XXI

Yes, I am pulling my Asian Persuasion today. To be completely honest, I did the samurai top knot WAY too tight. I already have a headache. I am guessing by noon, my hair will be down. The clothes on the other hand are very very comfortable.  In honor of samurai day(yes, I made it up), we will be “serenaded” by Nicki Minaj. Purely for the fact that one of the lines has both geisha and samurai in it.  Have a great day!!!! DOMO ARIGATO!

Lunch

It may not photograph most magnificently…but the taste translates much differently. Banana, honey, peanut butter– D made the most amazing sandwich(besides the ones good ol’ mom made for me as a shorty…and an adult) I have ever had!!! And on top of that, brought it to me as a love offering ;). Ate it in a snap!

Marisa Miller at the ESPYS

Marisa Miller wore this Alexander Wang Slinky Jersey Dress with her fave YSL pumps at the 2010 ESPY Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. in Los Angeles (July 14, 2010). I loved the look, and loved how she left her hair loose and relaxed. So much better than the tightly stretched faces of her less comfortable peers. Needless to say, she IS Marisa Miller…and uhh, she’s hot.

Sick and tired of being sick and tired

(sweaty after the gym)

Okay, so the thing is…I want to work out, I want to feel buff and sexy when I flex. But how is that possible when I feel so sick and tired and hot after my long days?? (hence the face)

I can only push myself through the uncomfortable parts of life…to get out of the plateau. Someone give me a hug and a protein shake.
