Victoria Beckham never seems to have an off day when it comes to fashion. The businesswoman, mother of four and former Spice Girl is known for her impeccable style, especially when she’s jet-setting across the globe.
So it’s only natural that she was spotted at the airport, during New York fashion week, wearing a classic camel wool coat with matching pants, leopard print bag and a hot pair of Nicholas Kirkwood cap-toe pumps.
If planning your family vacation leaves you feeling stuck between excitement and anxiety, you’re not alone. Vacations are a time to create memories and unwind with your family. So, why is the preparation such a stressful task?
Since I’m always taking the lead on planning our family getaways, I’ve learned some simple ways to get through the stress of planning and on the beach soaking up some sun and rum.
Here are 5 tips to help you plan your next vacation with ease:
It’s like everyone waited for the grand finale of award season to break out their Sunday best. The 2015 Oscars, held last night in Hollywood, proved to be a memorable night of tear-jerking performances and some of the most gorgeous red carpet looks that I’ve seen all year. For some celebrities, it was their best look eva!
In my last post, I mentioned giving up meat for lent. Well, I’ve gone one step further. NUBIAMAG has taken the pledge to go meatless on Mondays, and we would love for you all to join us on this journey to healthier bodies and a healthier planet.
You’ve probably heard of Meatless Mondays, but did you know that it was initially launched during World War I? The government launched this national campaign to reduce consumption and help with war efforts.
The movement was revived in 2003 as a public health campaign to help reduce the risk of certain diseases such as cancer, diabetes and obesity. It’s now a global movement with over 36 countries participating and taking the pledge to go meatless.
It’s Ash Wednesday and officially the first day of lent. This year, I’m giving up meat as a religious sacrifice, and as a baby step towards possibly going vegetarian.
Of course, I also want to avoid the hassle of cooking two meals, so I’m going with recipes my whole family can enjoy. I chose this Honey Lime Tilapia meal idea because it’s easy to prepare and my son loves fish. This sweet and tangy flavor will surely cause less fussing at the dinner table and have him cleaning his plate.
I recently got a call from one of my younger girlfriends announcing that she was getting married. She was happy that he finally proposed, as they’ve been together for over three years! Personally, I don’t think three years is that long but hey, to each his own.
My younger girlfriend (10 years younger) wanted to specially thank me for all the great advice I gave her throughout her relationship. After finishing up the call, I started thinking about the advice that I gave her. Those tidbits of encouragement and forewarning came purely from my years of experience and counseling sessions.
Looking back at the guidance I gave my girlfriend, I started to wonder what words of wisdom I could have shared with myself before settling down. Here are the top 10 marriage advice I would give to my younger self before getting married:
With all the celebrities, models and fashion industry icons at New York Fashion Week, who would have thought that a crying baby would make headlines!? Well, that North West knows how to pull a good publicity stunt just like mommy and daddy.
Fashion week fall 2015 kicked off in NYC last Wednesday, and the most talked about moments so far have been North West throwing a tantrum while seated front row at Kanye’s debut show, and North West throwing yet another tantrum at Alexander Wang. On both occasions, she was adorable and fashionably clad in all black including this Alexander Wang custom outfit…
There aren’t many TV shows that can get my undivided attention for an entire hour. But, for the past few Wednesday nights I put everything on hold just to watch Empire. The drama filled story line and colorful characters will have you hooked and itching for more.
Still, the main draw for me is Taraji P. Henson. The 44 year old actress and mother has a unique way of making her characters so believable and so likable. Cookie Lyon, played by Taraji on the Fox Network hit series, is an ex-con who was released early from a 17 year sentence and is desperately trying to get her life and family back.
The morning after the Grammys Kim Kardashian was spotted in NYC, which was a bone-chilling 26 degrees by the way, wearing a crop top and cargo pants. Everything about the entire ensemble (pictured above) is just wrong in so many ways, except for those pants. I want those pants.
The high-waisted camo cargo pants are perfect for running errands, birthday parties with the kids or you can even dress it up for a date night. It’s definitely a practical yet stylish piece for mommies on the go. Kim could have owned this look if she ditched the obviously shrunken or borrowed crop top and wore peek-a-boo cropped sweater instead.
Kim’s Faith Connexion camo cargo pants will run about $800 (insert sarcastic laughter here). With that said, I went on a bargain hunt to find some similar looks with more sensible price tags.
Dessert is always my favorite part of the meal. As a matter of fact, I sometimes wish I could just skip the meal and go straight for the sweets. Chocolate, of course, is always a good choice. Not only is it a potent aphrodisiac, but it also contains serotonin which helps to naturally boost your mood.
So whether you’re looking for the perfect recipe to complete your Valentine’s Day dinner or planning ahead for your next party, these delectable Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes will surely be a crowd-pleaser.
