Yes, you read the title right! MAC Cosmetics has announced that they will be releasing a limited edition collection for the R&B singer Aaliyah Haughton per her fans request. Which I think is fantastic! I was and still am a huge fan of Aaliyah. I’m sure other fans are happy to have the chance to get some signature Aaliyah beauty products in their makeup stash just as I am.

Aaliyah passed away on August 25th, 2001 in a tragic accident after finishing the shooting for her then up and coming debut “Rock the Boat”. This song still gets me on the dance floor. My mother even loves the song also! 

It has been stated that MAC says the new tribute collection for Aaliyah is set to release in the Summer of 2018. Aaliyah’s fans requested that the line include eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipliners, lipglosses, contour & highlighting products, beauty powders, false lashes, and eyebrow pencils that represent and are inspired by Aaliyah. I’m super excited for this collaboration to hit the store shelves. Oh, I know this Aaliyah for MAC Limited Edition collection will be amazing and I’ll definitely have my coins ready for purchase. 

I’m so pumped about the Aaliyah for MAC collection. It’s a great tribute to her legacy as we all know Aaliyah kept her makeup looks absolutely flawless. She was edgy but sweet. Plus, Aaliyah touched so many and she will always hold a dear place in their hearts. 

I will keep you updated on the in-store dates for this collection. You can also follow the line on Aaliyah’s website or on twitter.

You’ve been making plans for your ultimate wedding day. In your dreams you think of unique ways to make your wedding like none other ever seen before. In those dreams you see a Wedding Registry from Dominos because you and your mate fell in love over a slice of their delicious pizza. 

Well, dream no more, now you can have that Wedding Registry from Dominos. Starting today, they’re rolling out the aisle runner for their wedding registry at dominosweddingregistry.com. 

“Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, so we wanted to give recently engaged couples that are passionate about pizza the chance to register for something they both truly love as much as their partner,” Jenny Fouracre, Domino’s spokeswoman, tells The Knot exclusively. “Choosing wedding gifts can be a daunting process, especially if couples can’t agree on what to register for. Our registry aims to bring couples together over their shared love of pizza.”

Domino’s loyal fan base helped in making a wedding registry happen, especially since so many couples include the cheesy goodness in their wedding day.

“Our customers constantly tell and show us on social media how pizza plays a role in their wedding, whether it’s for the bridal party, a late-night treat for the reception and other day-of experiences,” says Kate Trumbull, Domino’s digital marketing director. “We wanted to make it easier for people to request something fun they’ll get excited about. Who doesn’t love pizza? From our perspective, you can give and receive a wide range of really fun, unique packages that tailor to the couple, like the ‘Thank You Card-a-thon’ package for when you’re cranking through those thank-you notes after the honeymoon.”

How can you create a registry? It’s very simple. Just add in your information and select the photo, message and items you want, and then you can share your wish list with family and friends on social media or pop it on your wedding registry with a unique URL. Also, your guests can also search for a registry by using your names and wedding date. 

However, creating and customizing your registry is the most fun! You can choose from a variety of featured gifts to enjoy before, during and after the wedding (prices starting at $15). For those who aren’t sure what to serve at prewedding festivities like bachelor parties, Domino’s has it covered with a “2 a.m. Bachelor Party Feast.” After you settle into newlywed life together, you can enjoy a “Low-Key Date Night” or take advantage of their “An Excuse Not to Cook.” All gifts will be delivered to the lucky recipient’s as Domino’s eGift cards by email to use on Dominos.com for whatever items they wanted. Your guests can give a physical gift if preferred. They’ll receive a printable confirmation email just perfect for putting inside a card. 

To celebrate the launch of Domino’s Wedding Registry, wedding-inspired pins have been added to the official Domino’s Pinterest page to make all your pizza pinning dreams come to life.

Last week video was leaked of Solange Knowles attacking her brother-in-law Jay-Z in an elevator after the Met Gala after-party at the swanky Standard Hotel (NYC). In the video posted by TMZ, you could see Solange exchange words with Jay-Z and then begin to hit and kick him. As
Beyonce’s bodyguard tries to restrain her, the two trade words and Solange kicks Jay Z again. Beyonce looks to be talking to both of them. Then she can be seen standing in between both Jay-Z and Solange at one point in the video.

What is going on with the family ? This is the question on everyone’s mind at this point. Is this a sister sticking up for her sister because of something going on in home front? Could it be a feud between a sister-in-law and a brother-in-law? Hummmm….
My sources tell The Review Chic, “Solange flipped out over something Jay said, that she took the way wrong.” Not too sure what words were uttered to make her go into automatic beat down, but whatever they were she let him have it!
Another question that pops up, is how did this footage get out from security’s hands? This was inside the elevator! Be careful what you do in an elevator because you think no one can see. But truth is there are eyes watching!
We will just have to see what unfolds!

To take a peek at the video click below.

Hello Loves! Well Chad Johnson is back in the news and this time he landed himself right in behind bars.

Chad was just kicked out of a Florida courtroom … after the former NFL star playfully slapped his male lawyer’s backside — a move that ENRAGED the judge, TMZ has learned.
Johnson was in court in Broward County, FL to face the judge for his recent probation violation in his domestic violence case.
Now here is where it gets super dumb….During the hearing, the judge and Chad’s lawyer were about to finalize the terms of Chad’s punishment which were going to be highly favorable.
The whole thing was shot to mars, when the judge asked Chad if he was satisfied with his attorney and the ex-NFL star reached back and playfully slapped his lawyer’s behind.
Chad then smiled … the court erupted with laughter …. but the judge wasn’t amused.
In fact, the judge found the move disrespectful and lashed out at Johnson, asking him if the whole proceeding was a “joke” to him.
Johnson replied, “I had no intent to make this a joke, because my life is in shambles right now.”
The judge — who lost her patience — suddenly announced that Chad’s deal was OFF and kicked him out of the courtroom.
Story developing …

Why would you do something like that in the courtroom? I mean really…It’s just time out Chad and the judge sure placed you in the time out corner bud!!!

Good morning everyone! It’s a great Monday morning here in Indianapolis. I got in a fab workout and then sat down to my laptop. I was browsing through my twitter space when I came across a post that had Too Fat For Fame in it. I thought what is that about? So I investigated the post, to find out its a new show that Kelly Price is coming out with and now casting for.
Kelly took to Youtube to tell of her new reality show “Too Fat For Fame” as well. According to Price, the premise of the show is an opportunity for “plus-sized talent” to demonstrate their abilities if they’ve been denied roles, auditions, etc. due to their weight.
Hummmm…I am all for giving shine to my plus sized sisters and bothers. I hope this does just that. That is all I will say for right now. If you are a plus size talent and want to give this a try, go for it! Let me know if you submit your video so I can support you.

Audition and casting submission reels should be sent to Submissions@TooFatForFame.com. You can follow them on twitter @TooFatForFameTV
