Be Bold, Be Beautiful, & Own It


I am sure everyone is saying,  Lorinda must be in Heaven!


Christmas, New Years and of course my birthday are always the best times of the year to rock the bling. Jaylee and I (my youngest daughter) went shopping today and it was like I was in heaven with all the shine! I honestly think I could wear sequins 365 days a year: my friends and family would say 366.

So I know a lot of you are thinking or saying, “It’s just not me” or maybe “I could never pull that off.” Well Sister now is the time to do it and there are so many fun & stylish ways to do it as well.

Let’s make the rest of your 2012 BOLD and SHINY.

Maybe you can just start with your nails or some sparkle eye shadow.

Or how about a bold necklace or earrings? Also, tank tops under sweaters are a great way to show some shine.

I know I would love to wear glitter from head to toe but I also know that would be an over dose of the shine too. I guess all that I am trying to say is make dressing up exciting and get excited about it! Be BOLD, Be BEAUTIFUL, and Own IT!

I thought I just might include a Gypsy-Sister Secret: If you’re not feeling  bold one day as you should be, I always have a drink! Everything looks better after a shot of whiskey!!!

So get out there sisters and get your shine on!



Parade of Nations Fashion Review

There are 204 countries that compete in the Summer Olympics. During the Opening Ceremony parade these countries are given the chance to be fashionable and show their pride in their country to the world. I love watching the parade of countries because I love seeing how everyone is dressed and seeing who the designers are. Many of the countries this year went with designers within their country such as the United States went with Ralph Lauren, Jamaica went with Bob Marley’s daughter Cedella Marley, and Italy went with Giorgio Armani. During this time many of the designers choose to incorporate something about the country or the country’s flag colors within the ensemble. Some of my favorites this year include…

The Amazing Spiderman ~ Amazing or Not?

The Amazing Spiderman is simply just that. Amazing! I loved Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker as well as the all-star cast members Emma Stone, Sally Field, and Martin Sheen. The Amazing Spiderman is the story of Peter Parker who is raised by his Aunt May (Sally Field) and Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen). Peter is an outcast in school and is a typical teenager trying to figure life out. While cleaning out the basement he comes across his father’s briefcase and immediately tries to piece together his parent’s disappearance which leads him to the science lab of Dr. Curt Connors who is his father’s former partner. Peter is then bitten by a spider and the transformation begins. During this time, Peter has to learn to maneuver his new abilities. Meanwhile, Dr. Connors alter ego, The Lizard, emerges and begins harming people. Spiderman races against him in order to defeat him and protect the city.

Ummmm you knew we would have to read it…

Have you heard all the hype?  Fifty Shades of Grey.  I read an article online several months ago about this book and then immediately downloaded it and then proceeded to read all three books in a weekend.  Needless to say the article sparked my interest.  This book is not for the faint of heart.  It is a typical corny love story, that isn’t even written that well.  The kicker is, it’s kinky.  REALLY KINKY.  I am not even going to attempt to write a review of the book, just open up the discussion about the book.  The jokes have been running rampant about lonely housewives kick starting their sex lives after reading this book.  Some have even predicted a Fifty Shades baby boom (okay Magic Mike is supposedly going to help with it) in about nine months.  Women everywhere are openly reading one of the dirtiest books I have ever read.  Believe me when I say that, I have actually read some dirty books.  Don’t judge!Stores of the ADULT nature are seeing a huge rise in sales, ‘Toy Parties” or as my friends and I call them “Tupperware Parties” are being booked left and right.  Couples everywhere are tying each other up and playing with whips, crops and paddles.  It has also opened up the conversation about sex.  Not that sex wasn’t already everywhere, but we aren’t talking about just plain ole vanilla sex here, we are talking about dominant/submissive role playing.
