Beyonce’s Let’s Move Appearance

Michelle Obama created a campaign titled “Let’s Move” earlier this year to encourage children across America to start eating healthier and become more active in their life. Beyonce surprises a few lucky students during one of their workouts at a school in Harlem, New York. I loved the energy and reaction by the girls in this video when Beyonce shows up. Celebrities should definitely become more involved on a personal level like this!

“The Evolution of the Geek”

Just got this from an article on Walyou.com and thought it was pretty cute. Who would have thought the term “geek” came from the word “gecken” which referred to “circus performers whose acts included biting the head off of a live chicken.” All I know is that apparently “Geek” is the new black. Heck, I’m at least 5 of these types of geeks in this photo, and I’m not ashamed of it! Hmph!

Geek Swag

My Favorite Summer Looks

July 27, 2011

Eva Mendes in a floral Peter Som maxi dress. Love the belt to cinch the look together!

Penelope Cruz wearing a navy, Hakaan jumpsuit. She can actually pull it off!

Mila Kunis in a white, Louis Vuitton dress. White is always a classic choice...and not to mention the pop star arm candy with her. Droool.

Kerry Washington in an acid green, Michael Kors dress. Love the punch of neon this summer!

Stay tuned for some more of my favorite summer looks coming soon!
