Keri kindred spirit !

I remember when I first heard Keri Hilson on a track with Timbaland titled "The Way You Are". I loved it and I loved the video ! I just liked her style. So you can imagine I was pretty excited when she released her own singles. I couldn't wait to buy her first cd after hearing "Turnin' Me On". I was totally sold when I saw the cover of the cd and Keri was wearing leopard print leggings. Now with her most recent cd, she has done it again, rocking leopard print nails ! This is the reason I still purchase cds ! I love the album covers and artwork. So I started off with the idea to just post her two album covers. I've already done a post showing her video for "Breaking Point" in which she was also rocking leopard print so there is no need for that. However, I did an image search on Yahoo ! and saw that Keri rocks leopard print A LOT ! Yay ! I love her even more! She is truly my kindred spirit ! Keri, I love you .....and I'm also from the "A" ...not that you will ever read this ! lol

Nicki Minaj in Leopard Print !

Ok honestly, I was not a fan of Nicki Minaj for a long time. least not openly. LOL. Secretly, I liked her audacity and boldness, her willingness to be different, her animation, her antics, and her crazy style. However, I thought she was incredibly shallow. But then I bought her cd, and there are many different styles on it and shows other sides of her. So now, I'm ok with saying I am a Nicki fan. Not just because of her music but because she represents originality and being yourself. Mainly, I think that she is smart, maybe not booksmart (although she could be) but I mean she is smart because she knows how to market herself. So...say what you want about her but she is killing it right now. She probably has just as much haters as she does fans but hey, she keeps controversy going so as long as people are talking, she is making money. Anyhoo, I did a post on Nicki because she did something I just cannot hate on....she rocked a leopard print catsuit at a Christmas concert in NYC. Check out the pics below. They were found on Tell me what you think but I don't really care....I'm luvin it !

Pump it Up!

Pumps will forever be with us! Aren't you glad about that? They will never go out of style, will always be fashionable, and will always be a trend. I wonder where that name came from..."pumps". need to wonder when I can just look it up. Here goes...

Okay. This is what had to say about the what defines a pump and where the name came from.

What are Pumps?

Pumps, in their most classic form, are lightweight, strapless shoes with closed backs. Generally speaking, pumps have a seamless front upper that is cut closer to the toes than the top of the foot. They need no fastening or lacing, as the foot can be slipped into them easily, although some styles have buckles or laces as a design feature, rather than a necessity. Pumps can have any heels of any height.

History of Pumps

Though the pump has been a staple in women's shoes for centuries, it was originally worn (without a heel) by men and servants in the 1500s - then they were called a "pompes." 

Eventually, bows and other embellishments, as well as heels were added to pumps, making them more feminine than the flat, plain shoes from which they originated.

Now that we are clear on this, let's get on with it ! It appears that women took what belonged to men and made it theirs ! So what else is new ? We have been doing this for years and we are still doing it ! We are women, hear us roar ! We stole their "pompes" and made them "pumps", making them feminine and embellishing them with our own thing ! How nice ! So, this should make us feel very powerful when we stomp around in our pumps ! I'm really feeling this power.....let's pump it up ladies ! The only way to improve pumps are covering them guessed it, LEOPARD PRINT ! Check out my favs !
