My name is D-Nice

My man and old school rapper D-Nice got married last Saturday in Newark, New Jersey to actress Malinda Williams. Derrick Jones, his born given name, is now a DJ. I used to be in LOVE with D-Nice. Not only because of his obvious boyish good looks, but his skill on the microphone was to die for. Man he had some hits. When I think of today's music the nostalgia I'm feeling is just too strong to shoo away. Here are some photos from the nuptials of the beautiful couple originally covered by Essence magazine.

Thanks sis for the pictures... sniff sniff

MTV aired the winner for season two's America's Best Dance Crew - Super Crew. This show is probably my favorite reality dance competition because it focuses on a group of dancers (4-7 members) who have formed a crew and are given challenges where they create their own choreography for the weekly task at hand. Also, the show focuses on Hip-Hop, my favorite dance style. Okay I have to admit that whatever dance show is in season is usually deemed my favorite dance competition, i.e. I'm just bananas over So You Think You Can Dance during their season. However, I'm not going to see the SYTYCD tour. I'm more interested in seeing the ABDC tour. This will be the program's first feature large city tour, and will consists of dance crews from both seasons one and two. The Jabbawockeez were the winner of season one and have gone on to do some interesting things, such as a dedicated scene in the movie Step Up 2, an on-stage performance with Ne-Yo at the BET awards, just to name a couple. MTV has only announced a few dance crews who will be gracing the stage for this tour: seasons one and two winners Jabbawockeez and Super Crew respectively. Also joining the major tour is BreakSk8 from season one, the sexy hip-hop dancers who dance at all times with skates on their feet. During the post-show for season two's finale we learned, along with them, that ASIID will also be included on the tour. Hostess Julissa inadvertently asked ASIID how it feels to be joining the tour. The dance crew looked at her silently in confusion, shock, and amazement; then one dance member asked, "we are?" Julissa responded, "oh yes, you are!" The tour starts September 18th, with tickets currently on sale. I presume they will release the remaining participating dance crews soon, especially if they want to sell more tickets.

Love to hate LC

OhmiGod OhmiGod The Hills are back tonight! Perez Hilton said it best: The Hills is the only show where you'll find anywhere from a ten year old and a fourty year old gossiping about the same thing! Can't wait to watch...

We're talkin' about Practice!

This is a classic press interview with Allen Iverson that my friend e-mailed me. Iverson was going on and on about being criticized when he was missing team practices while on the Philadelphia 76ers squad. Give it a listen for a good chuckle!

Never too soon

I was in H&M (out of state) with my girlfriend hoping to find some inexpensive summer outfits. I managed to pull out of there some dressy tees, cute short-sleeved button-ups for work and seductive clubbing tops. My girlfriend and I were trying on the clothes in the middle of the store because you know the dressing rooms are always ridiculously crowded. Just as we continued walking around the store loading up on magnetic clothes dripping over our arms, I spotted it: a black satin full bell finely pleated skirt! I immediately thought New Year's Eve party or company holiday party. What is this doing out on display in the store and available for purchase in July! Then I remembered the fashion world is always a step ahead, maybe 5 steps ahead. Anyway, I had to have it and at $50 it was a no-brainer. I have no top in mind for it at the moment, but I was blown away that H&M could have such a classy photogenic piece. The skirt hits at my calves so I'm thinking a tall heel, a subtle solid-color top and accessories will pull the look together. I'll be the bell of the ball!

Off to Origins

I'm off to Origins to spend money that I would not otherwise spend without this coupon. I purchase most of my skincare products from Origins, therefore every year the store sends me a $10-off coupon in honor of my birthday. The receipt of this coupon was timed perfectly since I'm out of moisturizer right now. I'm quite certain I'll find other things to add to my shopping cart because I just heart their products. I've actually been meaning to pick up a body scrub so now is the right time to shop away with them!
