Product Luv: Valentinos Day

One step closer to handbag heaven?

 

A first Valentino, out of nowhere. When CC got the call on this beauty I couldn’t believe it.

valentino

Not the bag, or the price….. both were amazing.

At first, with that price, I thought… just sell it. You know…all that dreamy stuff for the papaCrab and crablings futures..we can do this..we can do that.. and then I opened it.

And you know what? I will keep it just for me. My first Valentino.  I earned it, why give it away?

Wish it well!!

RASHAD: What kind of name is New New, anyway?

NEWNEW: I’m New New cause I always rock the new… new sh⋆t. Thank you.

RASHAD: Well, I heard you and you homegirls don’t buy none of that new… new sh☀t.

NEWNEW: Whatever.

Recoléta

CC was engaged in a conversation the other day… that brought back memories of a trip taken with crabbyG.Hubby. Over our 17 (!!!:) year friendship he has created some of the best times of just living. You don’t have to think, just follow. So one year we jumped on a plane to the beautiful country of Argentina. He dipped our time in glitz and glamour, as crabbyG.Hubby is known to do..and things were going great…until I brought up dinner theater.
Wait..what? Yes, I said..no way am I coming to the birthplace of tango and not seeing it! He barely agreed after we learned what we had to do to get there.
And the side eyes I got as we drove past the city, the pink house, the cemetery, and through the slums were genuine and authentic 😏🌟. But oh well. That show was breathtaking…and we got to go backstage and meet the dancers (we famous)
…When the show was over it was a life changing moment… and something to never forget. Even if he said I mostly loved it for the costumes, lol. Ciao 😉

Sharing is caring

CC is a just big Sabon junkie fan…and can’t rave enough about their Butter Scrub (my top choice is the Crystam Glam (limited edition) scent…it’s a treat for a papaCrab too 🙂
Its a little bit of heaven in a jar, not only for the smell, but for the magic their sea salt works. CC has been a little sicky and this just took it all away this morning….joy.
It’s a little pricey at $35 when there are other brands available, but it has so far lasted 3 months and still not at the halfway mark. And it’s heaven…in a jar.

Note2Crablings!… If you’re thinking about buying the matching bar soap, CC does not recommend it. It’s delicious, but not worth the price tag (In my humble opinion)

The Horror: Movie Night…. We Are What We Are starts tonight!

CC is looking forward to it. Reviews later! ~CC

In WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage, “Boardwalk Empire”) rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years *IMDB

➎ Reasons: Random…Hate 2 Love it

This is not a typical post. CC is not usually about this Vh1 life. I just tell my stories.

Everyone who knows me understands how much I loathe can do without most reality TV. I respect creative TV & movies too much. But from the minute I gave in and jumped in the LHHA pool I have been Team Shenelica.

I took my punishment from everyone. Says one reader: “What the hell has she accomplished in all of her 30+ years except steal somebody’s baby daddy, skrip and prostitute.?” But y’all know I can be bougetteaùx. Oh she has issues, but so does CC and its real. I’m not excusing her or me. I have been the fool sometimes 😔 But now you can relate too. Here’s why..

got a big ego

5 … She is hilarious… and usually right

4 … She makes huge mistakes.. but gets right back up

3 … For all jokes and insults people throw at her, she is one of the only true women on that show. (Rasheeda is also… but Rasheeda seems like the man, the masculine in the relationship, Kirk is the feminine. He doesnt seem like he has a say. Which is fine that’s who they are and why they will work once Mona’s script it ends.)…but…. Jo has been to hell and back. I think deep down she is really private and has been through things no one will ever know about. Trying to elevate, not needing fake friends, she’s just on her path. She been through way too much and has too much to lose.

2 … Take your risks. She doesn’t want to make it alone but she accepts if she has to. Treat your dreams with care. You might lose but it might lead to the very thing you would give your life for.

1 … No matter how much people hated she wouldn’t take her eyes off her prize…even if she fails at being the PR princess. And to boot, will call SJ on his mess in a good way- not easy and I don’t think that’s a camera trick. Part of me feels like he and Mimi just deserve each others miserable selves. But he has a power over her…If she truly loves him she needs him on top of their game otherwise how would he be happy?. Hope she leaves it there. Oh well. Not perfect. Not a role model. Just a woman.

The Bougetteaúx Chronicles

Attention: CC is testing a new series called the Bougetteaúx Chronicles
See, most people think in black and white. Some folks are pretentiously bourgeois while others are unabashedly ghetto.

However, there is a shade of gray, somewhere happily in the middle, and we call it “Bougetteaúx”. It’s French.

Today’s topic: This $500 Dress at Neimans

Bougie: I can split this on 2 cards and eat lettuce all week/my man will get this for me
Getteaúx: Girl please. My cousin got a knockoff for $20/my man will get it for me
Bougetteaúx: hmmm I wonder if I can find this at Century’s?/imma surprise my man

Topic requests welcome.

Last Nite a DJ Saved My Life

..in these Disco Pants…

Last Nite a DJ Saved My Life

Disco Pants

Ok, so he hasn’t saved my life yet. But he will when I get to wear my brand new jeggings – shown here on a fellow fashionista’s bod.

CC is not this small but that’s the beauty of these pants – no one can look bad in them. These pants are like the US presidency – an operation bigger than any one (wo)man.

Now, I waited 6 months for these to mayyyyyyybe go on sale… No dice. So full price it was.

Jean Envy

Rock and Republic

Ok Crablings,  everyone knows how seriously I take my jeans collection. I will skimp everywhere else, refuse to buy typical designer bags, and wear costume jewelry – but I will NOT skimp on jeans.

They are art.

That said, I’m equally picky about cleaning them. They do not go in washing machines. Ever. Unless they are stretch skinny. But for the top dogs it’s always a challenge to find ways to keep them clean. Even dry cleaning can fade them.

Thankfully, there are people crazier than me, and Apartment Therapy posted a vid about how to freeze them and keep them clean. As in store them in your freezer. Yes.

Sounds crazy, but they measured bacteria, cleanliness, and effectiveness. I’m willing to try it…
