Tribal BLUES and TAGGED!

Hey Dolls!!

Remember this Blazer I got while Thrifting back in September?  Well, I finally pulled this bad boy out and wore it today.  This was an item that my friend grabbed and then said she’d never wear it and said it looked like my style and this it is.  That it is.  I gotta say I love it.  This blazer is very versatile and can go from Casual to Professional.  I’m already thinking about how I want to wear it next time. 


I have also been TAGGED by my girl Trice over at High Heels and Good Meals.  I think these games are fun.  It gives us bloggers a chance to know a little bit more about the person behind the pictures.  So here goes...


The Rules
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things about yourself
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post
4. Create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tagging section about 'you are tagged if you are reading this' You have to tag 11 peeps.

11 Random Things About G
1. I love the smell of “NEW” Newspaper.
2. I HATE when people SMACK while eating their food.
3. I’m currently addicted to the show Criminal Minds
4. I think its annoying and rude when people ask you questions or make statements like:  Girl, can you walk in them shoes?  Do those shoes hurt your feet?  Are your earrings heavy?  I could never wear that.  How do you wear heels everyday?  You MUST spend ALL your money on clothes.
5. I LOVE NBA Basketball but I can't get into College Ball and March Madness.  (I've tried and it does NOTHING for me!)
6. I LOVE learning about Black History.
7. Home Alone is my FAVORITE Christmas Movie of all time.
8. I would like to attend Fashion Week (and/or surrounding events) this year.
9. I want people to know that if your only retirement vehicle is a 401k, YOU’RE in TROUBLE!!!!!!!!!!!
10. I wish I knew how to do my hair and make-up like the professionals.
11. I hope to redesign my closet for better shoe storage this year.
