Prepping For Your Spring Nail Color!!!

As the weather changes and you want to liven up your wardrobes, your hair, your makeup and your nail looks, I have found a few nail colors and cool wraps for you to try that will hopefully make the transition between the seasons an even brighter one!

Both wraps are by NCLA and are priced at $16. I can see these wraps in their fun styes looking so great that you can just wear a bright solid color outfit and let the nails be the highlight.

The awesome green color is by Clinique is a limited edition color, by the name of Hula skirt. It's price is also $16.

Aeropastale wants to save the day of the little ladies and those that like lighter, classic hues with a dash of glitter. They are offering their 5 bottle mini polish set for $5.60.

And if you would like to handle all of your spring and summer nail polish needs in one WHOP, then you can buy Deborah Lippmann's 5 bottle mini polish neon set for $30.

**Seasonal Shopping Tip/Advantage**

Be aware of nail polishes and their costs when you visit your local drug stores and boutiques or shops. If you see any hot spring or summer colors at a reasonable price, I would have to recommend that you buy them!!

New Music: Fall Off by Eroc of History Makerz!!

Fall Off is the newest song from Eroc of the History Makerz!! If you have ever experienced any of Eroc's music before you may know him as an artist that will always have a message in his songs. Energetic beats and polished production are two more things that define Eroc's signature brand of music.

I had the opportunity of talking to him to discuss the song Fall Off, to get a little more insight on the message in the song, you can read below for some thoughts from the artist himself.

Where did the inspiration for the song come from?
In the song Fall Off I wanted to talk about real life, from the perspective of those that have had their lives taken away (by being killed at the hand of another) or Fall Off due to being incarcerated. Inspiration also came from if you are still out here doing what you do and you don't want to Fall Off, you want to get out of a bad situation before that takes place. Those are the main avenues that inspired this song.

In the song, I hear references of several things that have taken place and there is even a news anchor reference and also,  a voicemail, from a young lady at the end, how have these things impacted your life and the choices that you make?
I have always been aware of, "the one day you are here, the next day you are gone" philosophy and that guides me to appreciate people and things while they are here on this side. Anything that I have mentioned in this song, I either knew a person that was a direct victim or it was someone close to me, that I lost or was in danger, so the references made are real, real life situations.

If there is one thing, that you would want listeners to take away from this song, what would it be?
To stop the violence. The black on black crimes, the killing of one another and themselves. Each person's life is precious to someone and that should be celebrated not torn down.

Eroc, is very proud of this work, as he should be. The song is solid, well constructed and thought provoking. This song will be on the album, that I was able to hear a little preview of. I think that this album will be awesome! It is not one note, and certainly is a stellar body of work. So if you are reading this, anticipate the music that is coming forth, you will NOT be disappointed!

Janelle Monae And Her Essence!!

Janelle looks absolutely stunning on the May cover of Essence magazine! She is not only a great talent, but is an inspiration, a beauty, and a leader in so many ways! The black and white uniforms that she wears are amazing and I love the way that they re-design her look into a new style while always maintaining the black and white theme, her "work" uniform as she calls it.

Essence had an event in her honor, to help celebrate her cover and lifetime achievements and attendees such as Emil Wilbekin, June Ambrose, Iman and others were present to help honor, Janelle. Way to go, Janelle!

During her speech, Janelle talked of many things that have helped her along the way and you can read what Janelle somewhat describes as her true "essence", in an excellent article here written by Jessica (Founder) of Glamazon's Blog.
