Little black...

Shoe... Just like the little black dress i think this is a MUST in all women wardrobes. There are many variations of the little black shoe, the classic black pump is a MUST HAVE. This shoe is so versatile, it can be worn on an interview, to dinner, to work, to an after work gathering. It has both a classy and fashionable appeal. The next Must have is the peep toe. These too have the appeal of many aspects. What is important about the little black shoe is the simplicity of it. No flowers, no rhinestones, not glitz, just a black shoe with a nice size heel. I personally own many pairs of black pumps and peep toe, different brands, different heel size, leather and patent leather.

These are 2 pair of my favorites. The first is My guess pumps. I purchased these a few years ago and i love how they feel on my feet. The heel is 4 1/2 and they make me feel sooooo sexy. The next pair are my Jessica Simpson peep toe which i also have in patent leather. These are all so sexy. i love them. so much so... I had to get it in leather and patent leather. the heel on these are 5 inches.
if i dont have a pair i suggest you go out and get a pair.

Freedom of religion or understanding the pain?

The building of a Mosque near the world trade center is such a touchy topic. It's hard to really pick a side. It's either you are for it being build supporting the freedom of religion or you are against it being build because you either first hand know the pain or sympathize with the pain of the family of those killed on 911.
Do you hold a whole religion accountable for what happened on 911 or do you continue to hurt those still in pain. As I said it is a touchy topic but I would like to hear your opinions.

Fro days...

So i have many wigs for my lazy days. as of late i have been having them. I decided to wear my fro for a week (initially it was just for a day but i loved it so...) the front was braided from a previous style and i just added the faux fro

Silly me

So because I am sick and tired of wearing flats and I THOUGHT my toe was better i attempted to wear a pair of "loose" fitting heels last night out to dinner with my boo. I threw a pair of flats in my purse for "precautionary measures". I got as far as from my place to the car and i felt the pain. I wanted to cry. Not from the pain of my toe but from the fact that I am still not ready to wear heels. I'm going through heel withdrawal and i don't know how much longer I can take it. *sigh this cant be life*

written yesterday posted today

I'm in a mood today. I thought as I got older females would be better but it
seems like they are worst. Nothing particular happened I just began to evaluate
things in my life. What foundations am I trying to build. Where am I going and
who will have my back in my attempts to achieve my goals.

I don't want to be "popular" that's never been my goal. Having too many
"friends" can be trouble. There does not need to be an extreme amount of people
in my life, I think it causes more confusion. I rather have a few really great
friends over a little big of great friends and a whole lot of... Just friends...

I don't want to be apart of the "mean girls crew" its never been my think to just talk down about some one even if that person i know for sure is discussing me in a negative light and clearly does not like me. I just cant take that much time out in my day to do such a thing.

These are the two most forceful groups I am seeing. weather its directly or via on online i.e facebook, twitter etc..

PGH interview

What is your current form of employment?
Jewelry Making

My reason for choosing you to interview is because you are a young/black buisness woman. Tell me your trade of choice?

What started you on this path?
My love for accessories, and the passion to stand out in a crowd

Are there days you want to give up?
No, of course I get frustrated but once I am over my emotional ride I just focus even more

What keeps you going and doing what you do?
My children and my hunger for success

With children how do you find the time to work on your craft?

My children are pretty independent and they know when they see mommy crafting that I am working. I try to do most of it in the evenings and when they are asleep. During the day they are also gone so I have free time to work on things as well What is your biggest success?
I consider my biggest success to be my first sale, that was the icing on the cake it was God telling me its ok and I can do this What is your biggest regret?
No regrets here, if I have regrets, I was not serious about what I can and will do What would you like people to say/think about you?
I can't worry about what anyone thinks or what they have to say because everyone is not on the same page, but I hope I present myself well to others and the report is outstanding, but I can never expect any thoughts from other to go my way 100%

Do you consider your self different or a everyday kind of person ?
I am everyday inside, but my exterior I am unique for sure lol but in a fun way

There are a lot of people out here with the same hustle, what sets you apart from them?
My hunger, my passion and the LOVE I have for my own product

If you can choose any job in the world to have no matter the pay what would it be?
Fashion Stylist for everyday people such as myself who have the hunger for the unique exterior : )

What is it that you do that keep customers coming back?

I am very personal with my customers, its not just the dollar sign, I like to consult and make sure they are full aware of what they purchase from me. Presentation is key as well, its so easy to throw them in a zip lock bag but I prefer to make them smile when they receive their ear candy

Does your personality come out in the pieces you make?

For sure !! I am known for wearing obnoxious accessories from jewels, belts, bags and shoes so this is natural for me when I come up with a new piece and its hard to not keep them for myself lol

Where can someone contact you if they are interested in something of yours ?

Well I am on face book under distraction bybeautydoll and I can be reached via email at

I know some would be wondering why I interviewed a fellow accessory maker so I must say this. There is a mutual respect we have for one another. I mainly work with metal, crystals, leather and chains. And she with feathers applique etc. We both dibble and dabble in the others main function but we have nothing but respect for one another.


I think my patience are running thin. I was beyond annoyed today on my way home. My mp3 ran out of juice so i was stuck listening to this big ass, grown ass rusty man pop his gum. he got off one stop b4 m3 and we got on at the same stop. I wanted to rip out my hair, To make matters worst, when i got on the bus this girl started popping hers. like who pops their gum??????

Big chop/ bandu results

Stop living for others. Live for your future

Having your priorities together?
At what age do you think ppl need to stop and put the priorities in order? I think once u hit 30 it's a must. In your 20's you party, you work hard and you party harder. U spend money on unimportant things and u " live it up" your focus is your source of fun. I believe your 20'S is to do exactly that live it up. Once you are in your 30's your priorities should shift. Owning a home and/or a business should be the focus. Spending your last dime on the latest fashion is not the move. Trying to keep up with the joneses is so last decade.Prioritizing your life with material things first, bills second is irresponsible. Unfortunately we live in a society that teaches us if we have material things we are better, so many strive to get it. Not realizing thy those things do nothing for their future. 

  I hate when I compliment someone and the immediately tell me who made it. "no thank you ma'am I didn't ask you". It becomes annoying. Isn't it a putty that you have a $800 bag but nothing in it but air. You should not have yo struggle a week after u purchase a big bill item. There is nothing wrong with having the finer things in life but it is important to be able to afford them.
