Sweeties, I must admit I was little sad when “Being Mary Jane” didn’t come on Tuesday night. I actually loved the show. Gabrielle Union, who plays Mary Jane, along with AKIL Production did an amazing job on addressing real life issues. We all can relate to some aspect of the show. We also loved the show’s soundtrack and Mary Jane’s wardrobe. It appears some of you ladies also tuned in to the BET scripted drama. We recently received a “Reader Request” from Anna who also loved MJ’s wardrobe. She said, “Where can I purchase the yellow jacket being Mary Jane was wearing?”

Just when I thought thrifting couldn’t get any better, my new thrift store marked everything down. I’m talking major, major discounts. Everything in the entire store was only $2. Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I guess everyone got the memo, because the store’s parking lot was packed and the lines inside rivaled Black Friday. No seriously, people had two and three carts full. It was a zoo. Despite the mayhem that surrounded me, I was able to find a few gems. Continue Reading »

When Lupita Nyong’o accepted her award for the “Best Breakthrough Performance ” at ESSENCE’s 7th annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon the young starlet said something that resonated with me.
