BET Awards 2015 Red Carpet Review (Who’s Hot or Nah?)

Hey Dolls and Divas!

So what did you think about the Fashion on the Red Carpet at the 2015 BET Awards?  Well here are a few of my Favorite, Not So Favorite, and I’m Not Sure.

Brandy Norwood:  I absolutely love this look!  Definitely a Favorite!! This black and Grey Dress is very Modern, Stylish, Classy, and Sexy at the same time (showing just enough leg) and that Pop of pink with the shoes takes it from 100 to 1,000!

La La Anthony: She is another one of my BET Red Carpet Favorites!! I think that this Dress is Super Simple .  However the print, the color, and the fit makes this dress a beautiful choice for La La.  And those shoes; just the right pop of Color!  I’m in love!

La La Anthony (Simply yet Sexy (love it!)

Naturi Naughton: Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful!  Tribal Print is definitely in right now!  This Tribal Print Dress is Fashion Forward yet Simple and Elegant.  It’s a Favorite for me!!

Karrueche Tran:  I feel that Karrueche is a Natural Beauty.  However, this  look actually took away from her Beauty!  The Grey Hair and that Jogger Looking Outfit and Bra is just not working!  Now I can see this same look on Rihanna (no shade)  Katy Perry, or even Lady GaGa but on Karrueche it’s definitely a Not So Favorite!!

Karrueche Tran (Nah!)

Bobby Valentino:  Folks on Instagram described Bobby V’s Ensemble best!  Very Power Ranger!  Reminds me of some 1970’s Funk Band type Costume!  This is a Not So Favorite for me! Nah Bobby Nah!

Nicki Minaj: Hmmmm?  IDK about this one?  I do love the silhouette and I kind of like the Big Zipper Thingy.  However, I do not like the Morticia Addams look of it all.  It’s also a little cheap looking.  This is an I’m Not Sure look for me.

Janelle Monae’: This is just a side note.  I absolutely LOVE Janelle Monae’s hair!

Part 2 of Spring Break 2K15 -New Orleans-Explore the Gulf Coast

Explore the Gulf Coast! Biloxi Mississippi / New Orleans,

I’m originally from Florida, so we have traveled to Florida on Vacation a million times! Therefore, needless to say my Daughter is burned out on Disney and Universal Studios!  This is my  Daughter’s Senior Year in High School and she is asking to go somewhere different, other than the usual Spring Break Spot of Panama City Beach (PCB).

So in true Go 2 Rose  fashion, I began to look for somewhere different to Vacation.  I came across the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  I know what your thinking “Mississippi?”  “Vacation, New Orleans Spring Break?” I was thinking the same thing!!! However, I was pleasantly surprised.  The Missisppi Gulf Coast is lined with beautiful White Sandy Beaches and Biloxi is like a mini Vegas and April is a great time to Visit New Orleans because the French Quarters Festival was held on the 2nd week of April this year!   Great Place to Vacation!!!  

So I’ll final stop on Spring Vacation is New Orleans Beeeeby!!! We  stayed at the Sheraton Hotel in Metairie, just outside of New Orleans.  This Hotel is not as Fancy Smancy as the Golden Nugget, but that okay because most of our time in New Orleans was spent outside the Hotel!  This Hotel is very clean and quiet but the parking Deck is a complete nightmare!  Continue reading

Rose’s Obsessions / Neiman Marcus

Hello Dolls & Divas!

Sooooo  my #1 Obsession is Neiman Marcus (NM)!  My sister introduced me to this fancy Atlanta Department Store waaaay back in the 90’s while I was a Poor College Student.  We visited NM during the Holiday Season and that’s when I became completely obsessed with the Neiman Marcus Liquor Cakes!  These super moist Minuature bundt cakes are a peice of Heaven in Atlanta!  AND even better!  The NM Associate advised my Sister and I to come back the day after Christmas when everything would be 1/2 off!  Great for a College Poor College Student!!!  Well now I am the Mother of a Soon To Be Poor College Student and I still visit Neiman Marcus every Christmas Season (day after Christmas of course) to purchase my Neiman Marcus Liquor Cakes. These Cakes come in an assortment of Rich Flavors such as Chocolate Champagne, Lemon Vodka, Vanilla Rum, Irish Wiskey, and more...

Go2Girl Tip: The Company that actually bakes these delicious cakes for Neiman Marcus is the Yahoo Baking Company out of Texas.  You can order Sweet Treats Direct from Yahoo Baking Company at  www.yahoocake.com

Neiman Marcus Cafe’ Atlanta

HELLO DOLLS & DIVAS!!

 Every Christmas Season; I head down to Neiman Marcus for the After Christmas  Sale!  To avoid the Holiday Crowds; I usually park in the parking Garage downstairs near the Neiman Marcus Cafe’.  I usually pass right by the Cafe’ and go straight to the Neiman Marcus Liquor Cakes!  However last year, I decided to stop by the Neiman Marcus Cafe’ for lunch with my Daughter (Diamond) and My oldest Brother (Anthony).

If you would like a laid back luxe lunch, featuring upscale casual cuisine then this is the place for You!  And you may even get to dine next to and converse with Local or Visiting Celebrities; as I did when, I ran into Miss Lawrence (Celebrity Hair Stylist / Guest on RHOA and TV Personality & One of the Host of Bravo Fashion Queens)

Hello world!

Welcome to Atlanta Go 2 Rose!

I’m Rose!  Most of my Friends refer to me as the GO TO GIRL!  Why is that?  You might ask.  Well here goes….

I Have always been a Girl with Champagne Taste. However, being a Single Mother with real life bills and situations causes my budget to usually float somewhere between tap water and Pink Moscato. Therefore, I am a very crafty Target Shopping Frugalista who also loves All things Neiman Marcus!!

I am a self proclaimed Greedy Girlso I love to try different / unique foods,  Which means that, you can find me anywhere from the Sundial in Atlanta to Ms. Willie Mae’s Scotch House in New Orleans! BTW I love concocting quick and easy recipes and you are more than welcome to be my GuineaPig  Girl.  I would love for you to try them out, love them, and share them with the world!

I love to travel and  I love even more to share my fun with Family and Friends. And don’t worry I’m always giving tips on where to stay and what to do!

I am super nosy or as I like to say “Know-See” and my Daughter  always refers to me as the friend of the Famous friend, because I always know someone who knows some Celebrity…So I know a little Celebrity Gossip  -wink,wink-

I am so grateful to be able to share my journeys, my travels, and my life with you.  Hope you enjoy the ride and pick up a few beauty tips on the way!!!

MAY GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY!
