LIL MUSIC REVIEW: SO FAR GONE – DRAKE #TBT

If Comeback Season is what separated Aubrey Graham from Jimmy Brooks, So Far Gone is what separated Drake from Aubrey Graham. I have a bad gauge of talent. I remember back in 2007 when I was making it a routine to sneak-watch episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation over at my friend’s house. Specifically, I […]

3 Quick Yoga Routines To De-Stress Your Day #SelfCareSunday

Yoga is dope. I cannot tell you the amount of peace that spreads through my body when I take the time out to stretch my body out. YouTube has a great catalog of all sorts of exercise videos, along with yoga. Trust me, if you take ten minutes out of your day to pay attention […]

#TBT why i’m in love with neo-soul ft. musiq soulchild, erykah badu

Neo-Soul is like butter. I have an affinity for music that’s smooth like that. It’s the type that has you unknowingly swaying to the beat. Any music that makes you sway is pure to the core; it knows the art of finesse. It makes the marriage of ethereal vocals with raw instrumentation that’s so unbelievably […]

WAKE UP, IT’S THE FIRST OF THE MONTH: OCTOBER

October is here! It’s officially spooky time ladies and gentlemen. This is my absolute favorite time of year. I’m in love with all aspects of the fall season and the wonderful holiday that is: HALLOWEEN! Part of me wishes that I was still young enough to get away with trick or treating because there’s something so […]

#TBT – IS B2K COMING BACK???????????

On the teaser for next week’s Love and Hip Hop Hollywood episode Fizz alluded to the fact that it may be time for B2K to come back (Reunion tour, maybe??). J BOOG HIMSELF is even going to make an appearance so they can chat about it. Which got me thinking: Black boy bands from the […]

LIL MOVIE REVIEW: IT

I never considered myself to be afraid of clowns. But, the night after I saw “IT” I could not get the movie’s villain, the creepy clown Pennywise, out of my head. I thought: “Did the movie change me?” Pennywise is one creepy son of a bitch. Generations of children know that to be true, thanks […]

LIL MUSIC REVIEW: SYD – ALWAYS NEVER HOME

Singer-songwriter, DJ, The Internet front-woman, and super dope individual Syd just dropped a new three song EP “Always Never Home”. It was only last year she dropped her first solo album, so I was majorly surprised when she announced the EP. I was slightly saddened by the fact that it’s only three songs. But, it’s […]

A MAKEUP BEGINNER’S LOOK AT FENTY BEAUTY

I’ve always wanted to be a bad gal. Now, I’m by no means a beat-my-face-and-look-like-a-majestic-unicorn type of chick. At 22 years old, I still haven’t mastered the art of eyeliner. Eyeliner, people.       (I know that’s mascara, but this emotion is real for me when it comes to makeup period.) But, what I […]

#niadiaries vol. 3 – blackout day & self-acceptance

It’s raining again. I always get into this melodramatic mood whenever I’m stuck in the house during a rainy day. It’s like I’m in an Usher music video or something. But, I digress. Things didn’t necessarily work out with the whole possible job thing. I was upset about it, but I’m going to keep finessing […]

HAPPY BEYONCE DAY (oh, yeah, and Labor Day too I guess)

Happy Birthday to one of (if not the) realest to ever do it. From Girl’s Tyme to Formation she dominated every step of the way and is a living legend. (Yeah, I said it. It’s true.) If she wasn’t a legend, how could she get all of these iconic women to recreate her Formation outfit (including the […]
