Magnificent Monday: Keshia Pulliam

Magnificent Monday

While everything pertaining to Cosby is controversial at the moment, lets take the time to reflect a bit on how things were in the ’80s. When I was a child The Cosby Show was a big deal, I still love to watch the reruns as it never really gets old. Keshia, oh Keshia, so much a part of my childhood as the precocious Rudy Huxtable. Naturally she grew up & became a stunning woman with admirable strength. A part of me will always think of her as Rudy through the nostalgic lenses that long for the innocence & freedom that existed in my early years.

Okay, so I can’t capture all the wonder of the season in 9 items, but I gave it a go anyway. There are so many things to look forward to with the advent of summer, though I’m sure that many of us have already been a part of summerish activities with the warmth of the spring. I’ll tell you that there are some things I am not looking forward to, like the overpowering heat & humidity common to my area, but I prefer not to dwell on the negative. I was looking around at Jolly Chic & put together a small wishlist with a bit of seasonal flair as I felt a bit inspired by the selections available. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Lauryn Hill

Magnificent Monday

This beautiful & talented vocalist has made a clear mark with her powerful voice. It’s also true the Lauryn has had success in acting, though the list of her work in the field is very short she is very recognizable. Her musical talents have lent themselves to numerous movies in addition to her studio albums. It is unfortunate that her song writing & singing professionally has been sporadic for a long time as her voice is practically angelic.

Lauryn Hill

There is so much to envy & emulate about Lauryn’s stunning style I had to narrow it down for a single post. I decided to go with earrings, though I could have easily done necklaces or bracelets. Rings might have been a little more difficult to find reference sources, but I probably could have managed. Still, ear drama is the order of the day, LOL. All of the items listed in this post were found at Target.

Hill Inspired1) Women’s Fashion Hoop Earrings – Gold ($2.38)
2) Women’s Fashion Drop Earrings ($2.38)
3) Women’s Fashion Drop Earrings – Silver ($2.38)
4) Women’s Textured Hoop Earring – Silver ($2.38)
5) Women’s Dangle Earrings – Gold and Blue ($2.38)
6) Women’s Dangle Earring with Acrylic Stone and Shell Teardrops ($2.38)

Fantastical Friday: Halloween Wedding Thoughts

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I’ve mentioned a few times in passing that I’m getting married (handfasted) on Halloween (Samhain), so I thought it was about time to include some of the planning & options we’re looking at. The whole thing will be a small affair with family & a few close friends who might as well be family. My mother has graciously agreed to let us use her home for the event & I’m sure I will be sharing many posts that are along the lines of decoration choices & what-nots. In this post I’m going to talk rings, cake toppers & the gift bags we’re considering.

Let’s begin: I have opted for a single ring for myself & feel the one selected is just awesomely perfect (pretty sure I’ve mentioned being a bit of a goth, who else gets married on Halloween anyway, LOL). His ring is not quite exactly what I wanted (who cares what he thinks anyway, LOL, seriously though, he likes it), since I couldn’t find a lovely band with purple stones to match my ring we went with black. They haven’t yet arrived but I am very excited to see them, also there may be a bit of a sizing concern we’ll have to deal with before the big day, because you never know. 😉 I know what you’re thinking, “your engaged, have even set a date & you have no rings,” well, in all honesty, I’m 35 & we have been engaged since I was 18, the ceremony was not a high priority. On the other hand we do have pendants we’ve been wearing for years that we purchased together to symbolize out union, but since we’ve buckled down on a date & preparations it makes sense to use rings as a symbol that everyone will understand without an explanation.

Rings
Mine:
Pixel Jewelry 1985 – Marquise Cut Purple Amethyst Wedding Ring Black Gold Filled ($21.99)
His:
Pixel Jewelry 1985 – Black Sapphire CZ Mens Wedding Ring 10KT Black Gold Filled ($21.98)

We haven’t ordered any of the following items yet, but the gift bags are pretty much in the bag (LOL) while the cake toppers are still being considered. As far as the cake toppers go (I’m sure you can tell that all but one come from the same shop, given the water mark), we are leaning heavily for the one with the zombie dude offering a brain to the female zombie, it’s my man’s fave from the  current selection list (okay, so I might care, a little, about what he thinks).

Favor Bags n Cake Toppers1) 50 pcs Gift Bag Pouches Spider Web Transparent Black & Gold Drawstring ($9.95)
2) Frankenstein and Bride Wedding Cake Topper Made for Eachother ($15)
3) Zombie Heart Hands Wedding Cake Topper ($15)
4) Zombie Take My Brain Wedding Cake Topper ($16.50)
5) Love Never Dies Wedding Couple Figurine ($19.53)

Do you have any thoughts on a Halloween wedding in style? I’m interested in suggestions & constructive criticism. 🙂

Magnificent Monday: Natalie Imbruglia

Magnificent Monday

Internationally known for her music, Natalie is also an accomplished actress. Amazingly beautiful & incredibly talented she returned to the studio in 2014 & released Male in 2015 in which she performed songs by male artists. Like many stars Imbruglia is known for philanthropy such as her work with Virgin Unite & Amnesty International. She supports campaigns to end poverty, raises awareness for depression & has worked with breast cancer campaigns as well.

Her style is so tasteful & full of class I find so much to envy. I’ve focused mainly on necklaces, but have included a few earrings as well. All of my selections were found at Walmart & I am very pleased with the pieces discovered while shopping about. I had some technical difficulties while working on this post, had to redo my computer & despite having all of my blog docs & pics on another drive my computer failed to save my list, so I had to go back & refind everything in the pic, LOL. Anyway, I got it together & here it is. 😛

Fantastical Friday: Some Nerdy Music

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Growing up one of my favorite bands, Rush, has been called the hardest rocking nerds on Earth, LOL. Though I do have to note that when Rolling Stone Magazine said that the article did include some misinformation, mentioning that they quoted Tolkien. now I might not be an expert, but the only band I have actually heard speak Tolkien is considered much more mainstream & that would be Led Zeppelin, or more specifically their song Ramble On. Of course both bands have some amazing music, many of which have some very haunting qualities. Hope you enjoy some of these as much as I do! 😉

Magnificent Monday: Phobe Cates

Magnificent Monday

She first came to my attention when she was in Gremlins in 1984. I still love that movie to this day, it’s hilarious & creepy at the same time, LOL. Perhaps her role in Fast Times at Ridgemont High is a little more iconic, I will always think of Gremlins in connection with her. Sure, her career in film is not as extensive as so many others, but she has definitely made a mark in my heart for the work she has done.

Phoebe Cates(Pics found in Google image search)

I like that Phoebe doesn’t feel the need to wear super expensive jewelry to complement her style. It seems that so many stars measure their status by how much money they can display with each ensemble. You don’t have to be made of money to look amazing. 😉 I found a few items from Tidebuy that inspire thoughts of this beautiful actress. As always when I highlight this shop I have listed full price for each item, this site runs sales all the time & when I checked these out none were more than $20, it’s not likely that you’ll have to pay the price listed here. I hope you all have an amazing week!

Cates Inspired1) Fashion Gemstones Decorated Metal Necklace ($20)
2) Charming Tulips Design Women Long Necklace ($32)
3) Bohemian Multilayer Water Drop Shaped Pendant Necklace ($62)
4) Multilayer Square Red Gems Women Necklace ($44)
5) Simple Chromatic Gems Women Necklace ($30)
6) Alloy Three-row Colorful Women Necklace ($38)
7) Fashion Multi-layer Rhinestones Women Necklace ($24)
8) Colorful Rhinestone Decorated Women Necklace ($34)
9) Vintage Style Alloy Chic Women Necklace ($29)
