What Is President's Day?!?!


Today, February 20th, 2012 is President's Day! Despite the name, this day is not a celebration of any one president, but was once the celebration of a specific president and of the office of presidency as a whole.

It began in 1879 as a day to celebrate George Washington's Birthday. Then the Holiday was later moved to be celebrated on the third Monday in the month of February, which makes the George Washington birthday reference no longer valid. But as time progressed it turned into a day for stores and auto dealers to run sales promotions and attract shoppers.

Excerpt from the wikipedia article for "Washington's Birthday"

Today, the February holiday has become well known for being a day in which many stores, especially car dealers, hold sales. Until the late 1980s, corporate businesses generally closed on this day, similar to present corporate practices on Memorial Day or Christmas Day. With the late 1980s advertising push to rename the holiday, more and more businesses are staying open on the holiday each year, and, as on Veterans Day and Columbus Day, most delivery services outside of the U.S. Postal Service now offer regular service on the day as well. Some public transit systems have also gone to regular schedules on the day. Many colleges and universities hold regular classes and operations on Presidents Day. Various theories exist for this, one accepted reason being to make up for the growing trend of corporations to close in observance of the Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. However, when reviewing the Uniform Monday Holiday Bill debate of 1968 in the Congressional Record, one notes that supporters of the Bill were intent on moving federal holidays to Mondays to promote business.

But today, I would like to recap some facts about our current president, Barack Obama, the 44th Pesident and the first Black President of the United States.

1. President Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961.

2. He worked his way through college with the assistance of scholarships and student loans and later moved to Chicago.

3. He went on to attend law school, where he became the first African—American president of the Harvard Law Review.

4. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago, and remains active in his community.

5. In the Illinois State Senate, he passed the first major ethics reform in 25 years, cut taxes for working families, and expanded health care for children and their parents.

6. As a United States Senator, he reached across the aisle to pass groundbreaking lobbying reform, lock up the world's most dangerous weapons, and bring transparency to government by putting federal spending online.

7. He was elected the 44th President of the United States on November 4, 2008, and sworn in on January 20, 2009.

8. He and his wife, Michelle, are the proud parents of two daughters, Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7

President Obama has re-written history. He is fulfilling a dream that Dr. King desired in the late 60's. This man, has made the seemingly impossible, possible and tangible and for that, he is and always will be an American hero, one of my heroes.

Happy Presidents Day!

Color Blocking Is Still In!!

Rihanna was photographed in London wearing the orange pants and purple sweater in the image above almost two years ago, in October of 2010.

I think that pairing of the two colors can be an addition to your wardrobe if you like to wear unlikely color combinations and stand out in a crowd.
Forever 21 is selling an orange and pink color blocked dress with a white belt for $22.80, which I think is a great price.
Jessica Simpson has a couple of pair of shoes that you can pair with the dress depending on your personal style and preference. The peep toe wedge is priced at $110 and the open toe strap pump costs $87.99.
Will you take a risk on the color block fashion style?

Whitney Houston!


We lost a wonderful, artist and person in Whitney Houston on February11th, 2012. (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012). The details of her death are still unknown at this time.

I grew up listening to her music and coveting her wonderful visuals in her music videos and movies as most of us did. In saying that, I am most impressed with Whitney Houston's ability to bounce back after going through life's trials and tribulations.

I do remember a time, that the media attempted to assasinate Miss Houston. Pulverizing her with questions of her addiction and using the coverage for more viewers.

Despite, the small hiccup in Whitney Houston's personal life she was a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend to many people that adored her. If you would like to read about the awards and records that she has set or broken, link in to a wikipedia article or her website, http://www.whitneyhouston.com/.

Whitney Houston was an icon, a trailblazer for so many other women of color in modeling, acting, singing and more and I will always love you, Whitney Houston. May your soul rest in peace and your family be comforted in this time of sorrow.

~Stay Notable.

This month's top 10 is full of little surprises.  Jay Sean and Nicki Minaj's "2012" actually came out months ago.  But, the new year (and an apt title) have given it a second wind.  Also, Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera got a hip-hop makeover, courtesy of Mac Miller.  Outasight got their first taste of chart success.  And, Adele turned in a performance so forceful that most folks didn't seem to mind that the song's more of a ballad than a traditional workout jam.

Image Controversy: Eva Mendes Marie Claire!

The hottest news in the press pertaining to image right now is the Eva Mendes cover for Marie Claire.
Sources are saying that she was photoshopped and morphed a little too much. But what do you think?
Why is it important to portray images of people after the image has been altered with digital technology and there goes from a truthful representation to a non truthful one?
Or why change an image of a person that already looks great and comfortable within their skin?
Please leave a comment of what you think below this post or go to http://www.facebook.com/notablestyles and leave a comment below the picture.
