Back in August, Lamar Odom happily announced to the world that he’s in love. Now, going off his latest gesture, we know his lovely lady is a keeper!

“Introducing my new fiancée!! Soon to be Mrs. Parr-Odom,” Lamar captioned an Instagram post posing with his future wife. “She the ONE!!!!!”

Alicia Keys and her producer husband Swizz Beatz want to create an environment where their children, Egypt and Genesis Dean, are able to live their best lives without fear of judgment!

On Saturday (Nov.9), the “Un-Thinkable” singer posted a video venting about how senseless labels can sadly keep people from expressing themselves as they please.

The 38-year-old mother recounted her experience taking her four-year-old son Genesis to the nail salon.

“He’s in the chair and he’s like, ‘I want [a] rainbow.’ So he tells the lady that…

It was nice to have these stylish nails all week.

I must confess: I’ve never been to a nail salon ever! So when it comes to acrylic nails, it’s been a no for me. There are several reasons why I choose to stay out of the establishments, but the main one is definitely the fear of losing or destroying my natural nails.

While you may be thinking I’m complete gross right now, it’s not quite what you’re expecting.

Let’s go back to how this became a topic of discussion.

My grandma, my mom and I met up at a coffee shop sipping and chatting over Chais when the discussion of skin care became our next topic of interest.

“Whenever you shop, think thoughtful and useful,” my mom would say when we would go shopping for my dad on Father’s Day. With more than 20 years under their belts, my mom and dad know each other like the back of their hands. So when my mom says that she knows what he likes, at least 99% of the time, she is right.

This year, I wanted to shop on my own and find a few gifts that would speak to my dad’s practicality and charisma. He doesn’t like lavish gifts but he can definitely appreciate the finer things in…
