Whether you attended Coachella in the flesh or watched Beyonce’s awe-inspiring performance on Youtube, there’s no denying the fact that Bey wasn’t playing games with her performance at the festival.  Not only did the performer make history by becoming the first black woman to headline at Coachella, she also killed by incorporating her feminist and political themes throughout her performances.  Meanwhile, she slayed the stage with her beauty and stylish digs to match.

When you are affectionately called “Queen Bey” and you walk out on stage in Cleopatra costume and you can makes one feel your energy through your presence, then you have successfully proven your grandeur as an artist.  One thing is for certain, two things are for sure, if you don’t walk away from a Beyonce’ show feeling like you should go harder, then you need to check your pulse.  You are obviously not on this planet!

The performance lasted for two hours and it was the most dynamic display of  advancement for the culture by far.  Beyonce’s attention to detail and precise execution of choreography was epic.  She told a story that summarized twenty years of her career and chart topping songs incorporating the sounds of other artists.  She shared the stage with Destiny’s Child, Solange, and her husband, Jay-Z.  Even though the show was not completely about the BeyHive, you still walk away knowing that it is all about Bey!

If you’re a woman that loves music, beauty, culture, and the overall advancement of women, then you need to watch Beyonce’s Coachella 2018 performance.  You will never be prouder of the fact that a wife, mother of three, and winner of many awards showed up and showed out at the festival.  It wasn’t just a win for her; it was a win for all women.  Her performance belied the greatness that we all have within us.  Nevertheless, she continues to prove that one woman can be fierce and unapologetically great and create her own rules. There is no reason to be sorry for that…..

Share your comments below and tell us what you thought of Beyonce’s 2018 Coachella performance.

Last year I had so much for which to be thankful.  Looking back, I can’t help but think about all the highs and lows.  The first part of the year is always the most exciting for me.  That is the time in which I start to put my plans in motion.  I use previous years to build upon for the next.

Last year, I took some time off to get myself together.  I went on a few trips to reflect on my life and try to prioritize my business. The time away helped me to come up with some pretty good ideas for the future.  Oftentimes, it’s  in those still moments that you have your greatest moments of clarity.  I have learned that it is critical to my growth and elevation.

As this month comes to an end, I am excited to share what I have to look forward to in 2017.  I have planned my entire year and it is going to be an exciting one.  For the next twelve months, I hope to engage my readers more by allowing you to get more involved with my posts.  I have a few giveaways that involve products for men and women in the Spring.  I will be connecting with more entrepreneurs for my first Pop Up Shop in April.  I’m excited about the photo shoot for Ponch Cosmetics’ Spring lipstick line.  Finally, I plan to end the year by giving back with my event that I haven’t planned in two years! I hope that it will be the highlight of this year.

Stay tuned to find out what all I have in store.  I hope to make 2017 as stimulating for my readers as well as for me.  Last year was great, but 2017 will be my best year ever! If not, it won’t be due to lack of effort on my part.  What do you look forward to in 2017?

 

Top Five Reasons Women Should Watch NBA Play-Offs

Yes, I am a girlie-girl and I am making this announcement! I believe that all women should watch sports, especially single women! Yes, I love makeup and no, I don’t like to waste the pretty. However, basketball is not a waste of our time. I truly believe there are a few things that we can learn from watching men play sports.

There are a lot of women who lament that they do not enjoy sports, but I always want to tell them that they don’t know what they are missing. As a self-proclaimed diva, I will be the first to admit that I was a cheerleader throughout grade school and high school and never knew the difference between offense and defense! Don’t judge me. However, I always loved the excitement of the game. Here’s what I have learned over the years and why I know women can benefit from watching sports:

1) It’s exciting. The music is blazing, the crowd is screaming, and everybody is wired. Anybody who is watching the game knows that it gets exciting. Get your head in the game, ladies! Basketball is what’s happening!
2) Professional players know how to compete. Basketball is really physical. These guys are aggressive and they are playing to win. They play fast and they play hard. Each game you see these guys play their hearts out to win the title. It’s either go hard or go home. That is what really makes winners!
3) The players are finnnnnne! LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili are fine individuals. They make the game worth watching. These guys are ripped up and cut. What woman wouldn’t want to see such fine specimens? I can’t name many.
4) Did I forget to tell you that these men are finnnnne! I could really name the entire Miami Heat team, San Antonio Spurs, and Oklahoma Thunder. Truth is, they are all fine!
5) Almost every man on the planet is watching. If you’re single, then you should be watching and learning. Basketball could be a great conversation starter. It’s a great time to go to Happy Hour at any bar. While you’re sitting at home looking sad and pretty, all of your opportunities are passing you by at your local Applebee’s, along with your competition. Guess who’s winning?

Ladies, are you convinced yet?

Do you agree?
