This week, we’re offering our pick of the best YouTube tutorial on achieving the slick back pony tail which is a hairstyle common among women of the African diaspora but since Kim Kardashian West started wearing her hair this way, more women from the non-ethnic general population started opting for this style.


It’s a great get up and go hairstyle that won’t get too messy as you go about your day. Now we’re done sharing the:

All items are available for FREE next day or two Day. It also comes with access to Amazon’s catalog of movies and TV shows, and unlimited photo storage — among other perks…if you have a Prime Membership which you can sign up for here!

box-o-style

As promised after my unboxing and review of the items that came in the Summer 2017 Box of Style curated by the fashionable editors of the Zoe Report and celebrity stylist-turned designer and reality TV star and TV host, Rachel Zoe, I wore the items during a recent beach trip.

The top quality pieces were a hit!


I think I wore the Helena Quinn kimono everywhere and turned lots of heads on the beach and pool side doing so. I have also been rocking those cat eye sun shades by Raen consistently as the Panama sun hat from Sole Society. Again, I think it is very cool that the items inside are valued at over $400 though the box itself only costs $99 per quarter. . (You get a $50 discount if you order for the year.)

In the meantime, I loved it all so much, I joined on as an official partner and am now promoting it actively. If you purchase using my link, I get a small profit share so thanks in advance for signing up using my link here!

Get Beyonce’s $4K Date Night Look for Under $200

bey-save

Try to keep up! Beyonce Knowles Carter is expecting her second and third children at the same time. Twins. Unlike with her pregnancy with her now 5-year old daughter Blue Ivy which she kept extremely private, this round, Mrs. Carter is a lot more open and public with her experience. One way she is sharing her journey to motherhood again is by posting up periodic photos of the outfits she wears to various events.

The recent is a look she wore on April 23, during a date night with her husband Shawn “Jay Z” Carter  for dinner at Nobu in Malibu, California, perhaps to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the release of her last project, a visual album “Lemonade.”
