The Kardashian’s recently lost a lawsuit against a Floridian company about their formally names ‘Khroma Beauty’. It will now be called ‘Kardashian Beauty’ and will be in US drugstores within the next couple of weeks. Have you tried Khroma / Kardashian Beauty yet?
Beyonce is already starting to run 2013! Gracing the cover of February’s GQ cover, the soon to be aired HBO documentary and her much anticipated Super Bowl half time show! All that plus her deal with Pepsi and an album! All that after giving birth one year ago to daughter Blue Ivy. That sounds like inspiration to me.
Many people including day time talk show host Wendy Williams have criticized Bey for ‘not being able to talk properly’ or being unintelligent . But the 31 year old is set to reveal in her upcoming documentary that she has just as much in the brain department to match her beauty and talent.
She runs her own company ( the Beyonce brand) and hear what she had to say on male / female inequality.
“You know, equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat?” she says in her film, which begins with her 2011 decision to sever her business relationship with her father. “I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.”
Bey also adds that she worked so hard before she was 30 as a plan so she would be able to do whatever she liked after 30…sounds like a smart plan to me!
Tia & Tamera’s show on the Style Network is the kind of reality TV we like to see. This season has shown Tamera’s pregnancy journey and both of their expansion into motherhood and moguldom ( yes, I think that’s a made up word!). From a Yoga DVD to creating their own lactating formula product, the ladies are showing that they have alot more to offer than acting and that the Olson twins aren’t the only business savvy twins in tinseltown. I think it’s important to show appreciation for positive woman / Read More »

Yesterday I received a blackberry broadcast that said something along the lines of ‘Tomorrow is the start of a new book with 365 blank pages, what will you write?’.
It got me thinking of something’s we can all start to do to boost what is written in our ‘book’ in 2013
1. Focus less on reality celebrities and focus more on our own lives
Even though iodine watch a lot of reality tv, I’m guilty of getting sucked into what the Kardashians are doing or who they are dating or what the latest drama is on the Real Housewives. The truth is it isn’t just entertainment that you watch for 30 mins because then you read blogs about it, comment, tweet, watch review videos, follow them on instagram. It can be all consuming but can distract you from moving your own life forward. You could be thinking ‘no that can’t be’, but how many hours in total do you spend watching these show, on the gossip blogs and talking about the people in the shows ( negative or positive). Now compare that to the amount of time you focus on writing down your goals, taking action towards them and reading etc? Do the math on a piece of paper to actual see how much time you are giving away that you could be using to focus on you. So don’t focus too much on Kim and Kanye’s baby ( truth is they don’t know you, are not thinking about you. However they are focusing on growing THEIR empire and wealth). Instead write down what you want to accomplish in 2013 and break it down into small believable, achievable steps. Read More »
