Did Topshop sh*t on the genius that is Kanye West?

Did Topshop sh*t on the genius that is Kanye West?

It looks like Topshop designed an Adidas line that one might actually wear since Kanye’s line for Adidas was giving us Hobo chic instead of ready-to-wear. Maybe it really is the simple designs that win in the end. For a second time, Topshop teams up with Adidas Originals to create a fusion of street style and active wear.  It’s a seven-piece…

Spiritual Growth Ain’t Pretty

You know, some people want change but don’t want to actually change. Some people want God to place them in high places but can’t handle where they are currently. Some don’t understand that in order to get where you want to go, you first have to become the person God wants you to be. If you aren’t changing, you aren’t…

I’m Waiting For Deliverance At The Doe

Sometimes we are so deep in mess that we can’t see the little glimpses of hope showing that God is bringing us out. We tend to summarize our desperation and then invite others to our pity party. We complain and whine the entire time we are in a trial; not realizing that if God is going to use us, we…

Jesus Is My Homeboy

What Does It Mean To Have a Friend in Jesus? I’ll admit I don’t have a lot of friends. I like to keep my circle tight. I have learned that sometimes to be great, you may have to be alone. While I love my friends, they aren’t always accessible. I get it, we’re getting older and my friends with families…

Sisterly Advice from Heather Lindsey

When a man is interested in you, he should first prayerfully consider the cost, then talk to you to see if you’re on the same page with vision & purpose and THEN pursue you with the intent to marry. Don’t let some man step to you like he’s “picking up a chick.” You aren’t an animal. You are beautifully &…

Faith in Hollywood

I went to LA this past weekend to style a friend who works for the Recording Academy and attends the Grammy Awards every year. I headed to LA with a few goals in mind: build and network and obtain new clients to style. But I ended up leaving with so much more. I left with confirmation from God that I…

Sisterly Advice from Heather Lindsey

Don’t glamorize Valentine’s Day this upcoming Saturday. I always felt like I can do bad all by myself. So when I was single, I enjoyed sitting by myself, watching movies, with take out and a glass of fresh squeezed juice on V-Day versus being laid up with a man that I knew I couldn’t marry AND couldn’t trust. Remember that…

Fly Carla in the Wild

I am currently working two jobs to fund my dreams. One job is at a cosmetic store where I am the oldest employee, sans my manager. The other is at a restaurant, where another young lady and I are the only two female employees. Both jobs aren’t difficult. But then again they are, because I am in the wild. As…
