Every Girls' Dream-Oscar Fashion

I think being a princess is every young girl's dream. Last night as i watched the Oscars i was reminded of that childhood dream (being a princess) when i saw those beautiful dresses. It immediately brought back memories of watching the show as a child.

Here are a few of the Oscar fashion that i just loved and could see myself wearing.

Natalie Portman was in a plum, off-the-shoulder Rodarte gown. Tiffany & Co. tassel earrings set off her dress, and Jimmy Choo heels on her feet.

 Sandra Bullock was simply elegant in a strapless scarlet Vera Wang gown, which she accessorized perfectly with a simple updo, crocodile clutch, and ruby red lips.

 Nancy O'Dell (The jury is still out)

 Helen Mirren in a gunmetal gray Vivienne Westwood gown, Cartier diamonds, and a short ‘do. 


 Camila Alves in a Kaufman Franco gown.


Scarlett Johansson wore a Dolce & Gabbana magenta lace gown and sexy bedhead hair.


Once again let me say i am not a fashionista, just a girl who loves pretty things.

Anxious- Please Just Wait!!!

The writing bug has officially bitten me. Yeahhhhhhh!!!! I have written two blog entries that have not been posted and this one makes my third. I am loving this journey. My blog is now my favourite virtual hangout stop. It is where i listen to my MP4 while i clean the house, mark the books, etc. It is where i place my favourite things.

I thought not having any followers would be a drag but guess what; when you do something for love and enjoyment it does not matter if you are plus one or not.  So if i have a plus one or never,  i must say i am truly loving this journey. Yes, blogging is cheaper than therapy. If you have not started a blog, maybe you should. 

NUFF LOVE (*_*) from your girl LIONESS

Music i am LOVING!!!!!

I think i am sooo blessed to be a Jamaican.I know my little island paradise has nuff (Jamaican creole) stress and the list goes on. However, i love the essence of who we are as Jamaicans and a very important part of our essence is our culture. Just thinking about our music, food, tenacity, language and the list goes on; it all brings a smile to my face.

Today i want to focus on our music. Its a new year and i must say i have been dieing for the new singles and albums to drop. Well they are dropping!!!!! So today i will be sharing a few of my favs.  

The first time i heard this young woman, i thought she was singing about my situation with her song 'wrong address'. Throughout the years she has not disappoint me but instead she has blown me away with her versatility. I can honestly say i am able to find a song from her catalog to fit my changing moods and situations which i think is fabulous.  Then again when it comes to Etana- The Strong One, i am sooo bias because in my opinion she is damn good.

The many shades of Etana- 2011








When i grow up, i want to like this woman here. She, i think, is my alter ego. She says all the things we all want to say but are too socially correct to voice. So, you know i am talking about Tanya Stephens my favourite Jamaican lyricist. 


Finally, i have to go back to my roots with this one.

I am a Vampire

I am a night person through and through. So, tonight i came home and fell asleep pretty early. The worst part about it is my boo was hanging with me. So after two hours of sleep; i jumped out of  my bed because i remember my boo. Anyway now i am up and i can't sleep. It is after 4 in the morning and i have been up since 9:30 pm. So i decided to write a blog entry and attached this article from Sparkpeople.com (fabulous website) that highlights the benefits of getting a good night sleep. This is a reminder for me. (*__*)


Are you getting the best night's sleep possible?
Many people have difficulty getting a good night's rest. Sleep plays a crucial role in your health and well-being. Often we lose sleep because our minds are preoccupied with going over the day's events or planning for future ones. If you have problems sleeping, try creating a journal. Write out your worries and fears about what is happening in your life. Are you considering a career change? Are your in-laws coming for a visit? Do you have a strained relationship with someone? Allow your thoughts to flow out honestly to better prepare for a good night's rest.

Work Place Drama

I have been wanting to rush home and vent via blog. Strange, i know, for me to prefer venting electronically rather than face to face. Blame it on technology!!!LMAO
On a serious note though, i realized this week that interpersonal relationships at work are very hard, tedious, challenging (there are so many adjectives i could use) to maintain.Just thinking about it now is totally hurting my brain. My question is, how do be we toe the line between friendship and professionalism?

Can one be friends with co-workers? If so, how far should that friendship go? These are just a few of the questions that i am wrestling with as i traverse this complex web. I do love my Boo's advise 'you were not employed to make friend; just to work'. Apart of my brain is saying Boo you are soo right and another part is saying boo you are a guy you sooo don't get it!!! However, it seems like i am the one who is obviously not getting it. Do you get it?

My Brown Sugar

Its February 14, 2011(12:41am), Valentines Day and i am up writing lesson plans. But, guess what,  Brown Sugar is on!!!!! So while i labour i am smiling, thinking of MY Brown Sugar and i am feeling like a giddy child. Love for me is a complicated web of mixed emotions. It is a maze of lost expressions, words and feelings that should be expressed however they are often swallowed. For me being in love is a complexed battle of valnerability. So, this right here is me taking the leap and taking that all important step. THIS is me standing in your shoes and saying what i feel. So play this video and listen to how i see you.
                                         


You said you knew that i was the one from the first day we met. Smile. Just thinking about it now i cann't help myself; i just have to smile. I do remember you as clearly as you obviously remember me.I guess i and blessed to find my soul mate. 'Not everyone can be with their one true love'. Thank you for being the man who has taken the time to love and accept me. This is how emotionally strong i think you are. Play the video


Boo, you are my perfect verse sang over a prefect melody. The ONE i never thought i would find. You have renewed my faith in man, in love, and in fairly tales. LOL!!! Seriously, i will love you as long as your love don't change.


                                        

So i saved the best for last, OUR song. Happy Valentines Day!!!!! Just wanted you to know that my feeling have not changed. Yes, i know i said Valentines day was on hold this year and it is; but i wanted you to know i care.
