The Cycle of the Make It Happen!



The cycle of the make it happen begins NOW! 2018 epitomizes what's fresh and new. Displaying all over the culture our ability to switch things up. This is a new beginning, a renaissance of sort. But this time the culture will maintain the grip on what's theres and never release it. When celebrities are doing exclusives with us, for us, by us..... oh what a world. The sky is the limit (like Biggie and Diddy said). Check out Fashion Bomb Daily (FBD) for the scoop and deets on Mother Remy Ma and her cute, sassy and classy prego fashions. She was lit, her entire pregnancy, check her Instagram for receipts. Thank you Remy, stylist Daniel Hawkins (@1800dhawk) and FBD Editor Claire Sulmers for the post Christmas gifts. 😘

Notable Beauties: Somewhere In America!!



This is a quick post to demonstrate a plethora of style and beauty looks, from 8 women in a real life setting.

I requested authority to post this image because I believe people stand to benefit from seeing how everyday women interpret fashion, style and makeup as 2018 comes to a close. With all of the pressures and definitions of beauty on social media, reality television and society (in general), it is refreshing to know that there are still women who come together and look beautiful, without appearing flashy and boasting of million dollar brands.

If you look closely there is style inspo for all people visible in this one pic. I've spotted animal prints, patterns, cobalt velvet, the cardigan look, matte fitted pants, moto jacket style, fall colored tresses, corn rows, soft curls, glam hair, ponytails, serving face, nude lips, pops of color and more.

Notable Styles and More is on style overload ladies and gentlemen. Hope that you enjoy! Drop a comment below and tell me which style matches your style the most.

PRSVR: New Addition to the Beverly Center!







Brandon and Margaret Williamson of PRSVR, a luxury lifestyle brand is moving into the Beverly Center, in Los Angeles, California in 2019. This is definitely an elevated move and a well executed one.

Almost 7 or so years ago, I was introduced to their brand and I have witnessed them remain true to hard work, determination and culture inclusivity. They have consistently designed exceptionally well, broken down barriers, obtained celebrity placements, increased their clientele base, had pop-up shops/boutiques in major cities across the U.S. (including Chicago, Atlanta, Indianapolis and more) and have even had one of their products featured in a Super Bowl ad.

PRSVR is a brand constantly on the rise. See below for a snapshot of additional companies the brand will be alongside in the Beverly Center.




In my opinion, the Beverly Center was in need of an upgrade and the PRSVR Boutique will be a valuable addition.

Women’s Rights in Sports!



Skylar Diggins is becoming more and more vocal about gender inequality in sports, specifically the salary differences in the two national basketball leagues of the NBA vs. WNBA. Not only do NBA refs make more than a WNBA player, the 12th man on an NBA team has a higher salary than an entire WNBA team.

Be careful not to sum up the argument to the fact that women in sports just want to be paid more, it's more about being treated fairly across the board (travel, jersey/product revenue, etc) for the performance that they put in. And fair treatment should be a part of the process. It's very unfortunate that fairness and equality are not guaranteed but have to be bargained for.

But Skylar is up for the fight. She is coordinating meetings with other female athletes to share and gather information as preparation for developing talking points ahead of WNBA negotiations.

Remember the Serena Williams Naomi Osaka US Open tennis match where Serena was penalized for what some would say were "normal" tennis match behaviors? Immediately afterward in the post match interviews she discussed gender biases in tennis and how she has a responsibility to speak up about them and bring them to the forefront.


Injustice to women anywhere, is an injustice to women everywhere.

The Confidence of Youth!

This past Friday, I was able to watch a group of young ladies aged 6-14 display their talents, as part of a celebration for the last day of camp. These young ladies were amazingly confident. These young women gave it all they had. The skill level varied amongst them, but the one thing consistent through out was their confidence and sense of self.

con·fi·dence - a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.

Interestingly enough, every single one of the girls that participated in a group performance showed a determination and rigor that should be commended.

Only when the groups relegated down to solo acts did a small dose of shyness, become detectable. In the shadow of shyness, determination and fearlessness still reigned supreme.

The confidence that I saw exuding from the girls on Friday, was admirable. And the youngest children in the groups seemed to be the bravest of all. Confidence is a trait that often times, fades away as you age and gain more exposure to life. Although, we should make sure that our daughters and sons are confident as they go out into the world daily.

Build, nurture and help the people in your life maintain a confidence that is unwavering. A great place to find examples of strong confidence is in the innocence of the youth of today.
