Are the BET awards over yet?

Ok so it’s Monday morning.  Usually after any type of national TV event the usually office morning talk is “So how was your weekend?  Did you see...” 

Sometimes I just can’t deal with awards shows in general.  However, the BET awards are one of those shows I never never ever seem to catch.  Yeah yeah yeah, I know as a “blogger” I’m supposed to be on top of trends and know what’s going on etc.  But I promise I have a legit reason for not watching.  As a matter of fact I have several. 

So here are the top 6 reason I didn’t watch the BET awards show on Sunday.

1-    I never know it’s coming on.  No seriously, I feel like when the MTV awards come on they do these spectacular productions in order to promote the show.  The damn commercials are usually funny and entertaining.   (And I likes to be entertained.)  Viewers are informed weeks in advance the show is going air sometime in the near future.  I feel like when it comes to BET, they just say “oh snap aren’t we supposed to have an award show?”  Then everyone just shows up with cameras and stuff.

2-    I have the internet.  All I have to do is log into Facebook or Instagram, go through my timeline to get a play by play of what everyone is wearing, doing, saying, who fell, who looks high, who’s pregnant etc.  It can be pretty annoying and I actually have my own hashtags for pretty much any event that is filling up my timelines.   Here are some examples:

3-    I’m tired of seeing the same female rapper win every single year.  There is no one else out there so why do we even have this category?

4-    I honestly don’t even know who half these people are.  Yes maybe by actually watching the show I could to put a face to the name of who is singing these songs that Hot 97 runs into the ground on the daily, but uhm why?

5-    It’s on BET.  I swear the only time I even remember what channel BET is on is when The Game comes on (or that garbage Being Mary Jane).  Otherwise my TV never turns to that station and I am just too lazy to try to find my channel guide…sowwy.

6-    Oh did I mention I have the internet?  The memes that are created during the show are way more hilarious and entertain than the show itself. (And I likes to be entertained)  I mean these people work FAST!  If you’re a meme creator do yawls get paid cuz uhm #BESTJOBEVER

So there you have it.  Please put all these excuses on my absent note cause I just wasn't here for them BET awards…oh and next year in advance.

As always thank you for reading
Forever yours, Dionne

FFF: Black and Gold Birthday

Hey Young Loves, it’s Frugal Fashion Friday again.  Last Friday I went to a 30th b-day dinner at Aureole restaurant.  Check out my review here.  The restaurant is in the city and very upscale.  The weather was great.  I wanted to be dinner party appropriate so I decided to go with a black ensemble.

I got the black lace jumpsuit from Strawberry’s for $24.99.  I don’t know the brand name because I cut the tag out since it was itching.

My Zara inspired sandals I bought on eBay last year for $27.90.  

My black and gold clutch I got as a gift for Christmas so technically it was free.  However I’m pretty sure mom mother got it for $19.99 and the black Friday sale.

Well that is all for now.  As always thank you for reading.

Forever your’s, Dionne

Summer Hauling for FREE

Hey young loves, so I recently got my Ebates check and I also had a 50$ rebate gift card soooooooo I said hey let’s do a little shopping (very little lol.)  I am signed up with which allows me to shop online and get cash back on all my purchased.  As a member you can also get cash back for referring others.  If you want to sign up here is my link. Sign up is free, no gimmicks and you shop at stores you probably shop at anyway.  Also in January I changed me phones services so the rebate finally came.  So yeah basically I had a little extra cash and technically none came out of my pocket.

Anyway I needed some things to wear here and there.  (Sure do hope somebody invite me to a BBQ or something.)  I decided to blog and yeah you guessed it I even vlogged it.  Check out my Youtube video.

FFF: Black, White and Faux Leather

Hey Young Loves, I want trying to implement a new series on my blog called Frugal Fashion Fridays.  I have a few series such as Mini Posts, Hashtags and DatingDionne101.  I don’t know but I’m just a sucker for themes I guess.
Last Memorial Day weekend the weather actually ended up being pretty cool and rainy.  It was also my friend’s birthday and we went to a casino to hang out, play some games and have a few drinks.  I actually bought an outfit that day but I didn’t end up wearing.  

I have this thing about wearing my clothes in the order that I bought them.  So since I had not already worn this dress and I bought it first, I had to get it out the way.  It was also my typical black and white which I just can’t seem get away from. 

Here are the stats:
Faux leather jacket: Jou Jou $24.99
Dress: XXI $14.99
Shoes: Rouge $24.99
Model: Your's Truly Priceless (tehehe)

As always thank you for reading, Ms. D

A Mini Post: Am I Wrong?

“Am I wrong for thinking out the box from where I stay?”  “Am I wrong for saying that I choose another way?”- Nico and Vinz

So yesterday I was jamming in my car listening to Z100 and this song came on.  Now I have heard it several times before but that particular time it just spoke to my heart.  It is called “Am I Wrong” by Envy now known as Nico and Vinz (No not that squirrel from love and hip-hop ain’t nobody checking for his music)

This song is so perfect.  Just wanted to share.  If you haven’t heard this song it’s a must for those who aspire to inspire.

Thanks for reading- Ms. D
