Collegetown Baltimore Leadershape Class 2010-2011

I cannot believe its been over a year since I participated in Collegetown Leadershape! I can honestly say that it has been one of the most memorable summer experiences I have had thus far, as regards to leadership and development. The Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape program connects students across campuses and with their communities to make a better Baltimore. The program is designed for students who have a passion for service and want to be civic-minded leaders–it starts with a week of leadership development and is followed by programming and support throughout an academic year. Students will not only develop visions, but learn to be visionary, and discover how to apply their skills and passions to our city.

Big shoutout and lots of Leadershape love to BALTIMORE CLASS #1 … We paved the path :-)

Go The F to Sleep– Narrated by Samuel L. Jackson

When I first saw the title of this book, I thought I was being punked– I read it twice and shook my head. The name of this children’s book indeed was Go The F**k to Sleep. Once I got past the title, I was curious as to what this book was about– thank goodness this silly story is a “children’s book” format, geared more so to the angst ridden parents of  insomniac children. If you want a good laugh, read the book– if you want a gut busting laugh, listen to the audiobook , voiced by none other than Samuel L. Jackson; yes he yells at you and yes its funny as heck. You can download the audio book for FREE if you click here. I think Michael Mansbach did an awesome job capturing the true essence of how parents feel when kids try to milk that extra time before bedtime. I have a two year old sister and a two year old nephew; I have a feeling that those two will be up to the same antics described in the book. Happy reading GLAMs

Fashion Folk Go Goo-Goo for Gaga– CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year

Just when you dont think this chick is done, she yet again leaves us all with out jaw on the floor. Last night in the Council of Fashion Designers of America ( commonly referred to as the CDFA ) crowns Lady Gaga “Fashion Icon of the Year”. Gaga has yet to let us down with her over the top, costume slash art inspired fashion–from the meat dress with sent shockwaves to the penis stilettos  who made us all blush, Gaga has continuously pushed the envelope since she splashed on the scene in 2008. Last night , she attended the CDFA Awards in her normal over the top fashion , and gave a nod to the Queen of Fashion Anna Wintour ( after accidentally calling her a “bitch”)  by donning her signature pageboy bob with a turquoise twist.

#Congrats to Lady Gaga and her ability and fearlessness to rock out loud :-)

Kelly Rowland Is STILL Motivating– Remixes Spread Like Wildfire

Go Kelly! Go Kelly! Her hit “Motivation” has spawned several remixes among artists– there is a version by Jeremih, The Dream, Mario and even R. Kelly has hopped on “Motivation”.There are about five versions that have leaked in recent week past– the closet thing to an official remix (depending on who you ask)  features Busta Rhymes, Trey Songz & Fabolous. #Shoutout to Kelly! This GLAM in progress is working it out! I wonder how Beyonce is liking this #IJustHadToAsk
