Moms be like: "Now when we get in this store, you betta not ask for nothing! We got snacks at home!"
The 'mean mom mug' pictured below is a universal glare felt by all children worldwide in the depths of their souls, before they enter the marketplace, grocery store, gas station, Wal-Mart, and any damn store.My grandmother gave this look to my mom, my mom gave it to me, and now (in the spirit of tradition) I give my daughter this same look.
"No, you can not have no damn candy.You just ate!"
Guys I know I'm dramatic, I KNOW THIS!!! Please believe me, it's inherited.My mom is quite the most hilarious and dramatic person I know!! If you don't believe me just check out the last phone convo we had below:
(my mom calls me Neeka)
Mom: "Neeka, what's an abbreviation for wig?"
Mom: " Yea, how can you make it shorter?"
Me: *rubs side of head "It's 3 letters, how much shorter can it get?"
Mom: "well I just don't want your dad-"
Me: " Oooohh you tryna text me in code when you sneaking and buying wigs huh? You don't want daddy to find out huh?!"
Mom: "well...shut up Neeka!"
Me: "When is the last time you got a new wig ma?"
Mom: "oh you mean my unit? (when she is feeling fancy, she calls wigs units like the Youtube girls)I got one on the way now!"
Me: "bye wig"
Mom : "Are you still wearing that lipstick crooked?"
Me : -__- *cries silently
SHE IS THE QUEEN OF SHADE,YALL!! SHE READ ME lol! She calls me just to throw a little shade.Honestly though, I am thankful.Because of her constantly shading and being bougie I have quite the thick skin when it comes to others and was the queen of the clapback on the back of the bus.So thanks mom, I guess...
I'm more than glad than to take a break from my mom to get into my look today.It is too fierce!! You guys know how much I love to celebrate women and other bloggers, well today is no different. I have incorporated elements from the Gucci gal herself, Ms. Too Fierce. She is a personal shopper in the UK, talk about a dream job!! She is all about Gucci and fierce accessories to complete her ensembles! You can expect to see her dripping in furs, Hermes cuff bracelets, the baddest sunnies, her signature Gucci gear , all topped with a wide brim fedora. There are literally no other words to say than 'too fierce!'.Check her out below and follow on Ig @toofierce1
All of my pieces ,except my feather blazer dress, are sold out.So I did my best to find great similar pieces.The blazer dress (from Couture Sexiness Boutique-I have worn before) is $120.I usually am a bargain babe, but I love supporting women and minority business owners also not to mention this piece is just EVERYTHING! Use code SPRING to get free shipping on the whole site.The pants below are from H&M and they also have free shipping until 3-19-17 with code 0897 (code not listed on their site).I also drew a little inspo from my ultimate fave Claire Sulmers as well.I first saw the feather blazer dress on her.I have also spied her in metallic pants similar and juxtaposing her dressy 'fits' with a band or statement tee.Who is Claire Sulmers? Oh, just everything and anything to me! She is the editor -in -chic of Fashionbombdaily, an author, glamazon with killer calves, and all around bad bish! In short, my fashion blogging shero;the wind beneath my wig.

Am I too fierce? You think Claire would approve? I hope so!
I got my earrings from Nasty Gal but they are sold out so I generously scoured the web for 6 other cross options.A few of these are from AliExpress and are dirt cheap.They may take 1000 days to receive, but you will be cute though! I'm thinking of getting the red ones.

Back to my mom though. She is a reeeeaaaaaal drama queen. So I called her on her birthday last year (from my work phone, like a boss bish) and I can hear the happy in her voice.I felt good, real good.I was proud to make my mommy smile. She calls me back days later,all upset and in hysterics, as only she does:
"I can't believe it.5 kids and no one can call and wish me a happy birthday!"
me-'but I called you!'
''Well, Neeka you know what I meant."
me-'bye wig' *click
Seriously is this just my mom, or is this just a 'mom' thing in general? Am I to be this way with my daughter? Should I be taking notes? *sucks teeth in Jamaican
Like really, I have run out of can's with her.This last thing really was the last straw:
'So Neeka, when you gonna put my crafts on your blog?!'
me-'nobody cares about your ugly crafts, ma'
mom-'They aren't ugly.You are just a hater, flatty pattie' (in reference to me having a small butt)
She alone is the source of ALL my body insecurities lol
'OMG you are so crazy! What if your mom reads this?'
She won't.I have walked her through how to access my blog a million and one times and she still has trouble.Yet she never has trouble looking up wig tutorials on Youtube *sideeye.
I lowkey hopes she does, she would think this pose is 'vulgar'.That's one of her words.
I say everything in jest, kinda not really. You just have to know my mom. She has a great sense of humor and can dish it as well as take it. Honestly I hope she does see this post. Her favorite color is Burgundy and I want her to ask for my accessories so I can tell her "no".
Oh yea, she also purposely calls my friend Shalanda ,"Shanehneh".She is messy with a capital MESS!
And my all time favorite line of hers when she is ready to get off the phone because she is 'over it':
''Well, I gotta go check on my slow cooker.BYE.''
Really? The slowcooker?!! It's cooking slow! The food will not burn in 20 minutes.I.CAN.NOT.WITH.HER.
I literally look just like her in this pic. The next time I go home I gotta find some oldie but goodie pics of her since she claims she was ''slaying the game'' and everybody was ''hatin' on her''.Lowkey they probably was though.She can dress, just not as good as me.I'm messy too.
So does anyone else have any mom stories? Surely I can't be the only one.Drop your story in the comments below.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
