Winter must haves for [him]

I soo appreciate a well dressed man.
Oh
Em
Gee!

Nothing is a bigger turn off than long ass dingy white tees,pants 3sizes too big,and a hanging 'do rag'..
Yea,I said it!Men have to invest in their clothing,a woman can wear a $44 dollar evening gown and look stunning,but you will know if a man has a $50 suit on.The fit is wrong,the material is cheap,it just looks all bad....

Luckily hip hop stars are starting to double as fashionistas.....Call him crazy but Andre 3000 was wearing cardigans and sweater vest way before Kanye and Wanye!


10-I LOVE guys with nice watches....How could you not?A nice watch shows class and that he is going places....on time!Im a fan of some type of metal band.Leather and plastic just dont do it for me.Dont get me wrong,I do dig a nice g-shock but only for SUPER casual wear,and it has to be worn correctly.

9-Im a sucker for a guy who has a shoe game to match mine!Im really into contemporary loafer and driver styles.They arent exactly winter shoes for men in the Midwest or east coast......but they are still sexy!
Gucci;Saks 5th Ave $395


8...And since we are talking about shoes,I have a fetish for sneakers....But not the normal all white forces,Jordans,or LeBrons you see up and down high school hallways.After 21 mans sneakers(if worn for casual wear)should be bold and make a statement...Creative Rec,Nike,Supra are all great places to start.I personally am not a fan of Creative Recs,but they are great for a man who can play with colors and materials(i.e. the patent leather)
Supra;Karmaloop.com $90



7-I fell in love when I saw this coat,it gave me my life!I have a thing for zippers AND pea coats so it was the best of both worlds for me.Its fun...Need I say anymore?
Volcom;Nordstrom $149




6-Denim is a staple in any closet,and just like women,men need to know how to wear their denim and what cut is for them.Popular styles such as True Religon,Rock Republic,and Mek are all great and super cute.....But not for every ones body shape.R&R has a more euro cut for slim people,Mek and True Religon seem to have a better cut for men who arent 6feet tall and a size 28 ;)
MEK;Nordstrom $135


5-*Designer spotlight* Ben Sherman has to be one of the most affordable slept on contemporary designers out right now.His vision for colors and patterns are amazing....He gives the look of $300 shirt for $80,Check him out!
Ben Sherman;Nordstrom $79


4-Im not a fan of shirts,at all....Well unless its a graphic tee.What better way to get a potential lady friends attention but with a humours/thought provoking graphic tee?Fitted jeans+Graphic tee+Hott sneakers= my dream boat!
KLP;Karmaloop.com $30


3-The smell of a man can be a deal breaker with me,I mean honestly who wants to date a man who smells like something you shouldnt have stepped in?Umm ew!I like scents that are crisp,light and not to heavy,because it will turn my stomach (i.e.Lacoste Essential Eau de Toilette Spray)....Long story short,give the AXE to your little brothers and step your game up.
Armani;Nordstrom $71



2-Since I dig guys with very low hair cuts,hats are so needed in the winter.The trapper hat is super cute,I would even wear it!
Ugg;Nordstrom $95


1-One accessory that every man needs in his drawer is power stays.Dont know what they do?Google them!
Wurkin stiffs;Nordstrom $35

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,

So I did a thing.... Chapter 1

This is the story of how my life was changed (again) in a matter of a few months... Its taken a while to process everything that has happened in my healing, the journey and ultimately what is next for me ... So bare with me as I tell this LONG story, Ill include pictures though to make it kinda fun...I have dealt with a lot of depression and anxiety stemming from this entire situation because of things that went wrong, things that were left unattended (by my own hand) and ultimate outcome...But I want to share my story because I know that someone else is hurting in silence and could use some help. While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my sy

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date. The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days.... Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree? So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education. via GIPHY I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit.......... I was scared. Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying. While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain... I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like
