Sad vs Celebrate Life vs Death


Prince, Roger Nelson 1958 - 2016

If you been rocking with me for a while then you know that I'm a Prince fan.  I'm not going to use past tense because his untimely death doesn't change that, I am and always will be a fan.   To see him in concert one day was on my life's to-do list.  

I was shocked more than I was saddened when I first got news of his death.  I'm now more reflective than I am saddened.  Will I get to a place of sadness,  I'm not sure.  Maybe one day his absence in the world of music will sadden me.  True artist today are slim to none.  I will miss him, his music, his fashion, his side-eyes.

I believe Prince lived til the day he died.  And to me, there is no sadness in that.  Only celebration of that life. 

I may not be able to see him in concert but his music and legacy will live on.

What's your favorite Prince song or how has his death affected you? 

My On-line Store Gems


One thing I find myself doing in the wee hours of the morning while everyone is asleep. Is shopping  online.  Here are a few of my current faves.

Shop Miss A - love, love, loooovvve this shop.  So much so that I've banned myself from shopping this one for a bit.  Great for accessories, makeup, and jewelry and everything is $1 yup $1.  I've ordered from this shop numerous times and the quality is amazing. So don't let the price tag fool ya.

5 Dollar Fashions - A gem I discovered a while back.  Although all prices aren't $5 dollars I've found some really great clothing pieces and jewelry here.  If you see something cute and they have your size get it or it will be gone.

Romwe - This is a china based shop so be careful with the sizing. I've had some hits and some misses. But overall still one of my faves.

What's Real


So really I haven't been into the Real Housewives of Atlanta for maybe 3 years or so now, but when I got word that Kim Fields would be joining the cast for the eighth season.  I had to get back into it.

I don't see the benefit of having cable when you only watch maybe 4 or 5 of the hundred and something channels available to you at $100 dollars or so a month. So I don't have cable.  I purchased the season from amazon so I can watch when I want.  I waited for the season to be over so that I can watch at my own pace.  So far I've made it through episode 8 and so far I haven't been disappointed.

Shade for days is thrown, messy situations nothing has changed as far as that.  And truthfully all the shade and messiness is the reason why I stopped watching.  I mean really, grow up.   But now Kim Fields is in the mix. For me, from what I've seen so far, she is the Real in Real Housewives.  Her  family and career are definitely her #1 prioities.  She's not after attention, drama, chasing money, or being in the spotlight.  For me, she adds a genuine innocence to the group.

My only question is will she last?  There is already a rumor that she has left the show.  I guess time will tell.  Her addition to the cast, for me, is a breath of fresh air.  Something the show could use.

So, what have you been watching this season?
