You made it through Monday. Now its time to tackle the rest of the week. My week started off slow, but by Wednesday things will be in over drive with daily deadlines.

While I have a minute let’s dish on all things fashion, beauty, and entertainment.


Just when you think you have these Carter’s figured out, the couple surprises us once again. While you were sleeping Beyonce and Jay Z released an action pack movie trailer for “RUN.” It’s the visuals to her and Jay Z’s song “On The Run Part 2.”

The nearly four minute trailer is loaded with A-listers including Don Cheadle, Blake Lively,Rashida Jones , Sean Penn, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Guillermo Diaz (Scandal’s Huck).


The mini movie that was directed by Melina Matsoukas, is set to the sounds of the couple. I heard Jay Z and Beyonce’s “Part II ( On the Run)” playing throughout. Snippets of Jay’s “Fuckwithmeyouknowigotit” can also be heard.


After watching crazy gun play, bank robberies, Beyonce swimming in cash, and wild car chases my hopes can crashing down. The trailer ends with “Coming Never.


Talk about a major let down.

If “RUN” ever develops into a full -fledged movie, I would definitely check it out. Would you check it out? This only gets me hyped for the actual concert.


And what’s up with these two coming through like a thief in the night. Jay Z’s “Magna Carta Holy Grail” dropped at Midnight for Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4, and Galaxy Note II users.


Beyonce came behind him and dropped a secret album,plus visuals. These two definitely move in silence. (


We’re learning more about Kelly Rowland’s secret nuptials. Well it appears it wasn’t as private as she thought. More details are emerging and pictures have even surfaced. The “Kisses Down Low” singer married her boyfriend and manager Tim Witherspoon May 9th in Costa Rica.

Doesn’t she look gorgeous in her all white gown. Guests were also asked to wear all white.

Speaking of guests, the Knowles-Carter clan weren’t the only A-Listers in attendance. Carmelo and Lala Anthony were also on hand for the wedding. Kelly’s former band mate Michelle Williams was also there to share in her special day. (US Weekly , Image Credit: RadarOnline/Splash)


Sweeties, Nordstrom Rack is finally online! I’m here for the 30-70 percent discounts that’s now at my fingertips. Please excuse my excitement, but I don’t have a Nordstrom Rack in my backyard so this is right up my alley.

The site launched on Monday and it’s powered by HauteLook.

In the the coming months the store will begin offering free shipping over $100 and returns to a physical store or the site within 90 days.


If the deep discounts weren’t enough to make you want to shop, here’s another reason why you should:’s Style Contributor, Kéla Walker scored these metallic pink Sophia Webster pumps at Nordstrom Rack.

I’m pretty sure those heels convinced you to start adding things to your shopping basket. (refinery29)


When I saw this pic of Rihanna and Beyonce at the Met Gala I knew it would be epic. And it was. The photo of the two is now the cover shot of Vogue’s Met Gala Special Issue.

Beyonce was gorgeous in her black Givenchy gown, while Rihanna shinned in a white Stella McCartney look.

It’s rare that we see these two pose together, but when they do, they definitely make a statement. LOVE! (Necole Bitchie)

Kelly Rowland is a married woman!



Kelly Rowland married her manager and long time beau Tim Witherspoon. The couple said ” I Do” in a small intimate ceremony in Costa Rica on May 9th.

Right by her side was her bestie boo, Beyonce. Solange and Tina Knowles were also on hand for the private ceremony.


No pics have surfaced other than Beyonce’s Instagram picture, that was posted on the same day of the wedding. In the photo Bey appears to be wearing a a bridesmaid gown, that she paired with chandelier earrings.

I can’t wait to see Kelly’s gown. Since I know that’s highly unlikely, I can only imagine. I picture Kels in an ivory colored mermaid style gown with a simple veil and gorgeous jewels.

Congratulation Kelly and Tim! (US Weekly)
