Eclectic Minimalism

I know you're looking at the title of this post and thinking "What the heck?" but that phrase came from the same person who said she was taken over by the spirit Nebuchadnezzar Hakeem Olajuwon on New Year's Eve.  If you have NO idea what I'm taking about, you can see that post here.

Moving on.

My body is mad at me because it doesn't understand what's going on.  I have joined the gym and started my workout grind, and I am soooo sore you guys!!  But my body is going to have to deal with it because, I can't stop 'cuz I won't stop (Diddy voice).  Does anyone have any good workout tips?  Does anybody workout? lol

Wearing: H&M cropped jacket and lace sheer blouse,  Gap stirrup jeans, Dolce Vita suede boots

I've been eating healthier too!  I'm proud of myself with the little salad I made the other day (yes I took a picture of it).

And I'm still going out in the streets even though it's Narnia outside.  I'm literally waiting for the Snow Queen to arrive at any moment!!

As I mentioned before, I'm in celebration of Black History Month, and I'm going to be adding some "did you knows" and whatnot to share on the blog!  Today: Sesame Street!

"More than 40 years ago, the Carnegie Institute was asked to figure out how television could be used to help inner-city preschool children read. Jim Henson and the Children's Television Workshop created a show with talking Muppets who taught children their ABCs and 123s. 'Sesame Street' mirrored a more inclusive world, including kids jumping double dutch, rapping and speaking Spanish. A 1996 survey showed that 95% of American preschoolers have watched 'Sesame Street' by the time they are three years old – a block in the 'hood where all children breathe air that's sweet. Now little black girls and their parents can be especially happy to tune into the program after the popularity of the 'I Love My Hair' song that debuted on an October 4 episode of the show. The show's YouTube clip of a little brown Muppet girl singing about the beauty of her hair went viral and encouraged black girls and women to take another look at the way we view our hair. "

If you haven't seen the "I Love my Hair" video, view it here.

Sidenote: I would have loved to have gotten the gig to record that song when I was little LOL!

Happy Saturday!

    I guess thats like me, well, actually my excuse is just pathetic.

    I did like 50 squats in my room, I would of done them the next day as well, but when I woke uo my legs felt... I don't even know, the ache was just next level, and even when I walked down the stairs they was still hurting so I was tryna keep my legs straight walking down the strais one by one hahahahha

    f u squats, f u!!!!


  7. Hey! Love this blog! I work out, but I can say when you change your routine it hurts (but in a very good way). I usually run but have started lifting weights and doing squats (on my own!!) and all I can say is that I pass out every night lol. Best sleep ever.

  15. that cropped jacket is so fabulous!

    on the workout thing - i stick to lots of cardio, sculpt classes, and hot yoga classes!

  16. Hey girlie!!!
    Sesame Street!!! I loved (and still love) that show! I still have my Ernie and Bert dolls- they are among my most fave dolls, actually. Speaking of which, I think it was Ernie's birthday at the end of January.. :D

    I LOVE this outfit!! It's so pretty, and you kept it interesting in this really elegant way combining patterns, but "not".. like the jacket has a colorful pattern whereas the blouse has an understated pattern of texture. They look great together- and I love your hair like that too. Good for you that you've been going for the health thing- that is awesome!! I'm slowly trying to ween myself off the junk food I got in the habit of eating over the holidays.. the beginning of the "healthier habits" is always depressing bc you can't eat whatevs, but then once you start to feel better, I think it becomes more fun (or rather, bearable LoL) because I feel more svelte then. That plate you prepared looks mouth-watering, though- that is definitely not something that would feel like a sacrifice to eat!! :D
