Spot The Ghetto Booty…

1 Jul

More and more I’m finding myself killing myself doing hundreds of squats a day and spending hours on my Bun & Thigh Wave Machine. Every sweaty, painful moment I’m wondering why I’m so obsessed with thick, toned ghetto booty’s but then instantly remember hot chickas such as Coco Austin, Khloe Kardashian, Beyoncé and, of course, the original booty queen herself -J Lo!

The accessory of the season is a perky, toned ass. Whether you like it or not it’s time to get that sexy hourglass shape ladies!

It’s nice to see a body shape being celebrated that isn’t a size 0!

30 May

I’ve been watching Tia & Tamera on Style channel (in the UK) and literally can’t get over how flawless they both are, inside and out!

I have a lot of catching up to do but I’m so far up to the point where Tamera has just given a motivational speech to 1,000 young women at a university (she is still without child) and Tia just wrapped on a movie and is taking baby Cree to sign classes.

Putting the emotional therapy sessions and hilarious antics of the ‘Sister, Sister’ actresses aside, the dynamic duo always look so beautiful, too, and I want to find out how I can shop their look here in the UK.

tia and tamera

On a stroll out in the sunshine with the little pooch, Tia and Tamera look equally as stunning but in two very different styles. Searching online, here are my carbon copies:

Tamera has thankfully been interviewed by Curly Nikki and this is what she had to say about her natural hair styles:

[READ THE WHOLE ARTICLE AT CURLYNIKKI.COM – CLICK HERE]

“I was born with very, very curly hair.  And as a kid I didn’t know any different. I was just like, okay, this is my hair.  I never noticed that other girls had straight or wavy hair, it was just my hair and I liked it.”

“I love Terax Creama Hair Conditioner and the entire Komenuka Bijin
line.  These are all sulfate and paraben free products that are helping me pamper my curls.”

Terax Creama Conditioner is available on Amazon for £44 – CLICK HERE

SO as shopping for celeb style goes, this feels like a valiant effort! Not only can us UK fans dress like them but we can also cop their beauty look, too!

Not too shabby for Shelby..

Who do you all have style crushes on right now?!

UK Top 40 Raises Some Important Questions

3 Dec

The Top 40 Chart is broadcast live every Sunday here in the UK on BBC Radio 1.

I’m usually working my day job by the time the show starts which means I can listen to the whole rundown of this week’s most popular music.

It’s pretty much the highlight of my Sunday shift. Not much else is going on.

This week, though, there seems to be something wrong. The chart isn’t what it should be. Some of the songs involved are not exactly ground-breaking super-beats or heart-meltingly beautiful power ballads, which raises some very important questions:

(Answers on a tweet, comment, postcard)

1) Number 40 is a new entry from Athlete with ‘Wires’. One can only presume the world was reminded of this boring song when good ol’ Rylan performed it on the results show last week. Does this mean Rylan does actually have selling-power?

2) Ladywell Primary School are also new in at number 39 posing the obvious question of WHO?! Well ladies and gents I found out via Twitter yesterday that it is a cute little effort recorded in the school’s gym hall in memory of classmate Caden Beggan (via @FinllFixIt on Twitter). So, in order to raise even more money for meningitis research download the song on iTunes! Have you done your bit yet?

3) Imagine Dragons have entered the charts at numbers 35 AND 37! Well done you guys! The question here is… Who the heck are Imagine Dragons? Indie Rock band from Las Vegas with Alex Da Kid on production. Seems legit.

4) ‘Shine Ya Light’ by Rita Ora is still floating around the top 40 at number 34. For such an unoriginal, tedious song it’s spent an unimaginable amount of time rammed down our throats by continuous air time and stragetically placed ads on YouTube (everywhere). Who is still buying this song?

5) Any song with “tweedle-da-dee-dee-deeee” as lyrics should never chart. Even if you are McFly and only number 33. Sorry, lads.

6) Naughty Boy and Emeli Sande are only at number 32 with Wonder. Question here is; who is NOT buying this song?? Deserves to be much higher in the charts, especially when Taylor Swift, Psy and The Pogues are sitting higher up in the chart!

7) How much money does Mariah Carey make from ‘All I Want For Christmas’ every year? It’s only the 3rd of December and she’s already sitting pretty at number 30!

8) How much money do The Pogues make from yearly sales of ‘Fairytale of New York?’ It was hideous all those years ago, it is still hideous now. Whoever feels the need to buy this song every year may need to be mentally tested.

9) Who remembers Gold Dust?! DJ Fresh’s finest song (in my humble opinion) is back at number 25 and it still feels as epic as it’s first release, if not more, because not only is the original back with a bang, the Shy FX re-edit is NEW and is a flaming hot version of the original. It needs to get higher! Listen here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duZlM0-zHf8

10) Christina Perri is in at number 13. Is it just me or does ‘A Thousand Years’ sound pretty much the same as ‘Jar of Hearts’? Borin’ Hell!

11) K$sha at number 10? How loyal are her ‘animals’?? The song is poo, her singing ability needs to be questioned and we really need to figure out how many more alternations of Auto Tune we can tolerate. However, well done Kesha’s animals for getting her where she is today. The rest of humanity can’t work it out.

12) Gangnam Style is still in the Top 10. Fair dues to Psy who released a terrible, catchy-ass song. It was always bound to be a hit. Everyone loves a laugh. Yet, this has now been a 15-week-long laugh. PLEASE STOP BUYING THIS SONG. Many thanks xx

13) Gabrielle Aplin. Quite a cute tune. But number 6? Surely that should’ve been where Emeli Sande should’ve been? Maybe Adele? I’d even accept Robbie at number 6. Anyone else more deservant of this spot? Yawn fest.

14) We all really loved Diamonds. RiRi’s first good song since…well for a while. It’s catchy and makes you sing along in a weird faux-Barbadian accent. Then the radios got a hold of it and it was OK’d for every single station on planet Earth. Heart, Magic, Kiss, Choice, 1extra, Heat… In fact it was so overplayed it died an ugly death. Or so everyone thought. It’s BACK at number 3… probably because the more mature listeners think it’s brand new. Any other suggestions for this annoying climb up the chart?

15) Bruno Mars at number 2, Olly Murs at 1 (for a second week running). I do love a bit of Olly, but Bruno is perfect. As is ‘Locked Out of Heaven’. Quick swapsies?

Now that’s 15 life-changing, pretty serious questions about this week’s chart. In short, a huge rant from me. How do you see the charts? Just right? Or all wrong? Comment below and subscribe or tweet me @sheldan2207

Xtina, Pink & Rihanna: Pop Music Is B A C K

4 Oct

I’ve been gone a LONGGG time!! And I am so sorry! My day job really is becoming a pain in the butt; I’m definitely putting in around 50 hours a week at the moment. All I really wana be doing is blogging!! So today is my first day off in 9 days and I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY!

First of all… C H R I S T I N A ♡

In the words of Rihanna, “Where have you been all my lii-ii-iife!” Well, not all my life, but the past god knows how long. I mean ‘Keeps Gettin’ Better’ was Ok but THIS…

Let me explain. 5 days ago, Christina released her sexy new song ‘Your Body’ with a filthy vid to match. In the vid she looks absolutely drop dead gorg and I just can’t deal with THAT seductive walk, in THAT bodycon dress and in THOSE killer heels. Serious popgasm right about now.

If you haven’t seen this vid, check out the saucy minx and follow this link to her official YouTube channel to watch it! THEN buy it from Itunes because we all want Christina back in the charts, right!?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cfCgLgiFDM

Talking of smokin’ hot divas from yester-year back in the charts…

Pink’s new album (which is her sixth studio album – eek!) has topped the Billboard album chart in the US. How in God’s name is this her first number one album over there?! As the Kardashian’s would say, “Kray Kray!”

Pink’s track ‘Blow Me (One Last Kiss)’ is still in the Top 20 official UK chart at the moment at number 14 and her album is at number 3!

And, last but not least, the ever-transforming Rihanna. The music industry’s chameleon. ‘Diamonds’ is Ri-Ri’s brand new track and I’ve got to say, it may be one of her catchiest ever! I defy you to listen using the link below, then go the whole day without singing ‘shine bright like a diamond’! I dare ya!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOGBIbqXwYE

Music insiders are pinning ‘Diamonds’ to be number one in the UK on Sunday after sales went through the roof as soon as Capital FM aired the first play on 26th September.

So this means Christina, Ri-Ri and Pink are back dominating our charts with delectable new pop tunes?

Where’s Britney at?!

xx Peace xx

Chris Brown Sports New Tattoo Of Beaten Woman, Twittersphere Disgusted

11 Sep

After that mug shot was released of a broken, beaten Rihanna, the world was disgusted and shocked as news broke of Chris Brown’s attack on the 24-year-old Bajan babe.

I’m not sure when or why the world decided to forgive Brown but he is yet again facing a huge backlash over his new neck tattoo which you can see using this link:

http://music-mix.ew.com/2012/09/11/chris-brown-tattoo-rihanna/

What is he thinking????

Although he denies the face is that of his former flame, the design resembles similar injuries Rihanna suffered after Brown’s 2009 beating, including a bruised lip and a black eye.

The tattoo is in fact, according to Brown’s publicist, a MAC Cosmetics design celebrating the Mexican Day of the Dead.

Ok, Chris. Whatever you say honey. You’re not fooling’ no-one! Dawn Porter, writer, responded to the pic on twitter saying, “Seriously what IS that? On his neck, where everyone can see. Knowing what people know. ‘Random girl’ my pie!”

Simon Curtis, musician, also tweeted against Brown saying, “I think it might be time for the universe to click delete on Chris Brown.”

However singer and actress Skye Townsend wrote, “Chris Brown’s tattoo definitely looks like a MAC makeup template. People always want a juicier story.”

What do you think? Over-reacting? Or is the ink in bad taste? Do you like the tat and think Chris Brown needs to be given a break?

Get involved! The jury is out on this one…

4th Of July Tribute Blog!

5 Jul

Even though I reside in the United Kingdom I’ve been getting the itch lately. Ever since my 3-week tour of America back in 2010 I often get these overwhelming urges to just pack up and get back there even just for a few days.

However, this is financially impossible for me right now so instead I spend my time fantasising and planning future trips! What I’ve been LOVING lately is all of the patriotic apparel trending both sides of the pond. In the UK we’ve just had the Diamond Jubilee, we are currently hosting Wimbledon as usual and we are busy putting together the finishing touches for the 2012 London Olympics so I expect every British person rocking the Union Jack in some way this summer! Some celebs have jumped on the bandwagon proving that it’s super-stylish to be proud of your country!

UK reality star Ollie Locke is known for his patriotic style;

National Treasure Kate Moss poses in her Union Jack blazer;

& young Willow Smith kills it with these Union Jack leggings;

But nothing really brightens my day more than receiving a pair of American Flag espadrilles on the morning of the 4th of July; INDEPENDENCE DAY!

I couldn’t have planned it better myself, but, YES there they were in all their glory, on my feet this very morning! Thank you www.chockers.com!

At only £10 these are the steal of the month and have set me off on an American style voyage;

How far can I take this style though? Well I could keep it simple like Kylie Jenner and bust out some super-short-shorts;

 

Go skimpy a la Rosie Huntington-Whiteley;

Or just over-kill it just like Katy Perry, Solange and Ke$ha!

Oooh dear, that’s not Ke$ha’s best look ever, mind you, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen Ke$ha dressed at a socially acceptable level. Anyway, the point is being patriotic can be sexy, trendy and most importantly fun! It’s colourful and screams P R I D E so everyone should hop on board! My favourite suppliers of such apparel are obviously Chockers shoes (see link above),

HAPPY SHOPPING, HAPPY TRENDING AND HAPPY 4TH OF JULY BLOGGERS!

Should Rihanna Be In REHAB?!

1 Jul

My love for Rihanna is bitter sweet.

Her music, her style, her effortless, Bajan beauty and her epic stage performances warrant my sometimes irrational obsession.

However, she doesn’t seem herself of late and I’m starting to wonder if it has anything to do with the rumours drifting around the place about her possible consumption of unhealthy substances.

In short, has she turned into a drugged out wild child?!

She’s gone from THIS:

Beautiful, fresh-faced Bajan pop star;

To THIS:

A re-invented version of herself;

to finally end up in photos like THESE:

SOMEONE ISOLATE THIS WOMAN!

WHAT is she PLAYING AT?!

Whether or not these things in the photos are drugs or whatever else, she’s partying like it’s literally the end of the world and it’s just not sexy! Also, in my humble opinion, her last album SUCKED!

I’ve had enough now, what do you think?! Is she/isn’t she on drugs? Should it matter or should I just let it go? It might be a coincidence that her last album was totally pants which is around the same time as these most recent pictures but I hope she takes a time out and stop acting all ‘thugged out’ or however she says it. You’re surely smarter than this woman!? Give it up!
