GUEST POST: 5 Tips on How to Be a Well Dressed Man

You all don’t get to see The Boy very often because he’s usually behind the camera taking pictures of me. While he may never admit it out loud, I know that he takes great pride in his appearance. One of the many things I love about him is his effortless fashion sense and the secret joy I know he feels when someone compliments his ensemble. Being that I love fashion and value his opinion, I’m always asking him about my own outfits and striking up conversations about the latest trends in men’s fashion. It was during one of these talks that we both agreed the men of 2016 could use a little guidance when getting dressed and I thought who better than to help them out than my super fly honey. (more…)

How to Get Over His Love of Video Games

When The Boy and I first started dating, I was still in undergrad in Miami. This meant the early part of our relationship was cultivated through texts, phone calls, and Skype sessions. I can vividly remember many conversations where when asked what he was doing, he replied “playing the game”. At the time, I didn’t think much of it, but when I came home I quickly began to feel like his video games were his mistress. He played the game while we were on the phone, when I came over to visit, shoot at one point he was packing it in his backpack and plugging it up whenever he could. I literally used to hate “The Game”, but now after almost three years of cohabitation I hardly mind the time he spends on the sticks at all (well maybe a little bit when he’s supposed to be doing something else). So ladies, if you’re man is video game obsessed, I’m here to help you learn to get over it! (more…)

Is Queen Bey Out of Formation?

Well Queen Bey has done it again folks, caught us all off guard and “snatched our edges” as the Bey Hive says. In case you didn’t know, Beyonce released her visual album  Lemonade on Saturday.

Let me do a quick recap for anyone that wasn’t on twitter, near a tv, or lives under a rock. (more…)

How Old is Too Old for a Promise Ring?

Great news Royals! Knight Vision Photography has officially done its first engagement shoot! What made it even more special is that it was at Busch Stadium and we got an amazing mini tour and to take pictures in the dugout and what not. Being the diligent assistant that I am, I started looking up the best hashtags to use on social media for engagement pictures. While doing this, I stumbled across several pictures of women rocking “promise rings”. It has been quite a while since I heard someone mention a promise ring and I was genuinely shocked that people still gave them to their significant others. I started doing more snooping and was surprised to find many of the women showing off their promise rings looked to be in their mid-twenties or older. At this point, my mind flashed back to an episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta when Mama Dee’s beau gave her a promise ring (just for reference, this woman is probably at least 50 years old). I immediately began to question why these women would except promise rings in lieu of an engagement ring at an age that seems appropriate to be getting married. I decided to do a little research to understand exactly what promise rings are and what they symbolize. (more…)
