Jory and I tried our hardest to replicate the delicious jalapeno margaritas at Z Tejas in Tempe, AZ.
We decided we could knock it off with some fresh jalapeno, cucumber, simple syrup and lime juice blended with tequila…
Looks good, but the flavor was a little off. We are already prepping for the next attempt. This time, we are going to use 1/4 cucumber and 1 jalapeno. Maybe straining it would help too. Jamison said, “It tastes green… like vegetables.” Yum, salad plus tequila in a glass… Is that diet friendly? LOL.

So, in the spirit of Black History Month, I wanted to a do a little something. So I decided to profile some of the most important fashion designers, models and tastemakers in the Black community:
Famous for well tailored clothing, Willi Smith’s clothing line was worth $25 million when he passed away in 1987. I still buy it to this day… BTW, he designed the costumes for “School Daze” (a Spike Lee joint):
And on to the models on the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s:
Beverly Johnson – scored the first cover of Glamour mag by a Black woman, now she sells lace front wigs in the back of magazines
Beverly Peele – I know you remember her… I got “Nuttin but Love” for you, baby. (Hello – the Heavy D video!)
Veronica Webb – so fly and last seen as Tim Gunn’s model friend on “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style”
And my favorite tastemakers:
Andre Leon Talley – besties with Anna Wintour, fashion models and J.Hud alike; he’s “big, beautiful and lovin’ it” (quote courtesy of my favorite bad movie, “Two Can Play That Game)
Thelma Golden – Museum curator extraordinaire, she has built a legacy at the Whitney and at the Studio Museum is Harlem. And she is married to London-based Fashion Designer, Duro Olowu:

So, I have wanted the smaller version of this bag forever:
The Giant City Bag in Apple is so my desire. And it’s on sale at Beyond the Rack for $1299.00. Wanna blow a LOT of paycheck?
Filed under: Girl Crush Wednesday
I totally dig this woman – even if I’m jealous she dated the real-life Smith Jared aka Jason Lewis. She is a true New Yorker; she loves fashion; and she is a kick-ass actress. Did I mention she’s smoking hot? Here is to my girl crush of the week, Rosario Dawson:
Isn’t she just gorgeous? You don’t usually get a KILLER body and beautiful face anymore. Rosario hit the jackpot! Love you girl.
