HEY EVERYONE! I'm so sorry I haven't been able to post lately. I'm actually in the process of moving so the constant, packing, tossing, and literally condensing my life in boxes has been a bit overwhelming, but most of all time consuming!! So as soon as I am more settled I'll have more time to post & I also miss you all so much!
Anyway I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe holiday week with family, friends & those you love! Oh boy, I have fun things to share so I"ll be back very soon okay!? Love ya Flaunt Followers!
Okay first and foremost I ♥,♥,♥the imagery that was created for Res's free L.P album entitled, "Black.Girls.Rock!" which is now available...yes you read that right FREEEEEE!! Besides that the music is beautiful, amazing, and makes me want her voice really really bad. I don't want to ramble on much b/c you have to hurry and listen for yourself. I'm a big fan of Res(hence the first song you hear upon entering my blog) because...well she's just that good gosh darn it! Anyway like I said before take a look & listen for yourself right now okay!?....oh & yes, enjoy!
So cute & chic Kam! Plus she created her own non-profit to benefit the youth in her local community! To be featured for "Flaunting Since 5", submit answers to questions + childhood & current pics to: firstname.lastname@example.org

As I mentioned before over the long Holiday weekend I found some amazing vintage pieces for the ShopTheFlantFiles store. I also made a quick stop to my old job, Tory Burch on Robertson because I was in the area and it's been quite sometime since I dropped and said hello to my former co-workers. I happen to go during the Black Friday frenzy and completely forgot about it until I walked in! Everyone looked super busy of course because there were tons of women trying to stock up on shoes + more due to the amazing sale. Speaking of shoes I WISH I was able to stock-up myself :) Tory's collections are amazing right now and although I try to visit the site often I saw a few pairs that were new to me. Here are some of my favs I saw in-store that are freakin' amazing! Definitely stop by your local Tory Burch Flaunt Followers, or your nearest high-end dept store! It was so nice to see my old co-workers that day: Adrianna, Brooke, Shereen, Ann, Danny, GiGi, & Natasha (+ hello to Lance & Jill!).
So a while back I filmed a lip singing role for Shafiq Husayn'smusic video "Lil Girl" ft Fatima for his project "En-A-Free-Ka".Shafiq happens to be a friend of a friend so a few of my other friends were also featured! Mind you we were asked last min so I literally had to learn the entire song on the drive over & it was not easy! So now I have an even greater appreciation for real artists :) Any-whoo here's the video which features Avriel Epps with cameo appearances from Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Jay Electronica, Thundercat, and Wood Harris. Everyone looks absolutely beautiful and the final edit looks amazing, shout out to Greg Ponsting! What do you think of the video & can you find me Flaunt Followers lol?! (hint: 0:24, 0:30...)
