Last year (which was technically only 10 days ago) – I had the great pleasure of teaming up with Verizon Wireless for their #My2012Moment celebration campaign. I had the opportunity to meet and interact with many visitors from around the world – all with one goal in mind – to ring in the new year with over a million friends, family and more in what many call the crossroads of the world – Times Square.

We chatted about everything from accomplishments to milestones and everything in between that made many #My2012Moment for everyone. Some of #My2012Moment (s) definitely included: (Click here for the entire #My2012Moment list…)

 

  • Attending the 2012 London Olympics
  • My first ever Parisian escape to Paris, France
  • Being Named “Best In The Blogasphere 2012” by Black Enterprise

Check out below to discover why this has been an unbelievably phenomenal for DivasandDorks.com.

 

 

Black Women in Music / Black Women in Hollywood

Thanks to Lincoln & Essence Magazine, we had the chance to rub elbows, talk tech and mingle with some of your favorite starlets, musicians and Hollywood celebrities. Kelly Rowland, Nene Leakes and more checked out the new 2014 Lincoln MKZ during Essence’s Black Women in Music, Grammy weekend in California.

In The Press – Essence.com, RollingOut.com, BlackEnterprise.com, TheRoot.com, Pose Magazine

This was an incredible year for DivasandDorks.com in the press. As a contributor for Essence.com, I was featured in RollingOut & Pose Magazine highlighting the business behind the blog. BlackEnterprise.com even interviewed an unconventional mentor, (my mother) to reveal the secrets behind successful mentor/mentee relationships. Before the summer was complete, TheRoot.com listed DivasandDorks.com as one of the best blogs of 2012.

Induction in Black Enterprise Magazine’s Top Of The Blogosphere’s Best

One of my favorite moments by far included kicking off this year’s Black Bloggers Month as being revealed as the first inductee in the 2012 Blogosphere’s Best for BlackEnterprise.com.

 

 

Kayaking in the Pacific Ocean

During an exciting west coast excursion with Toyota, I had the best time camping and even kayaking, (yes, I really kayaked) in the Pacific Ocean all by myself.

Diva, Dork and Actress?

This year marked a year of firsts in front the camera, as I starred in Ford’s Escape To New Orleans web series and Samsung’s SmartTV informercial series.

Panelist, Host & Keynote Speaker

“When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back, and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.” – Michelle Obama

This year has been filled with a lot of hard work, blessings beyond belief, and I was more than excited to share my experiences as a speaker/host/keynote speaker at the Financial (App)titude seminar, Style Bloggers of Color Conference, National Association of Black MBA, Charlotte Chamber of Commerce and the Tom Joyner Family Reunion.

20121231-211128.jpg

 

Mentorship & Inspiring Young Lives

As an active mentor for The Young Women’s Leadership Schools in NYC and host of D&D’s first “Social Girls Night” – we at Diva And Dorks believe in investing & encouraging young women to pursue their dreams, passions and more (and because of those beliefs, the Divas and Dorks Foundation was officially formed.)

20121231-211029.jpg

 

Global Ambassador at the 2012 London Olympics

As Samsung’s official ‘Global Ambassador’ – I was privileged to represent Team USA at the 2012 London Olympics. I got the chance to meet Olympians, take in a few of the Olympic games and experience all the unique sights of London, England.

20121231-211215.jpg

 

Last Train To Paris…

For the first time ever, I experienced a dream getaway to Paris, France from the United Kingdom (during the Olympics). The Effel Tower, The Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysée all were seen and conquered by the diva!

 

 

Divas Love To Travel & Love Their Cars!

This has been an amazing year of travel and automotive adoration on DivasandDorks.com. So much so, that our sister sites DivasOnDestinations.com and DivasDriveInHeels.com were born and slated to launch January 2013!

Guess Which Of Our Favorite Viral Videos Made The Best Of 2012 List…

December 26th, 2012 by Christen

youtube

 

This was the year of the viral sensations, from YouTube singing stars, hilarious videos and international phenomenons like PSY’s ‘Gangnam Style’ music video (making almost $8 MIL off his sensation – this was definitely a great year for him!)  Check out the web’s top picks of memorable & viral videos of this year, after all – you’ve survived the Mayan apocalypse, Christmas and now begins the countdown to 2013 (so why not relive this year’s best videos online?)

 

 

Sweet Brown – Ain’t Nobody Got Time For Dat!

 

Why We’ll Remember
The Catchphrase. “I said ‘Oh Lore Jeezizizafar!’ Then I ran out, I ain’t grab no shoes or nuthinjeeziz – I ran for my life! And then the smoke got me I got brawn kite us…..ain’t nobody got time for dat!”

 

 

Krispy Kreme – The Baddest

Why We’ll Remember
The snot. Krispy Kreme’s nose was the only thing running faster than his southern twanged lyrics. Don’t be fooled by glazzy face though. His real name is Tyler Cassidy and he graduated #1 from high school with a GPA of 3.95. Yes, he graduated high school.

 

 

 

GloZell – The Cinnamon Challenge

Why We’ll Remember
The hair. Shaking abruptly in a cloud of cinnamon. Cinnamon that was sprayed from GloZell’s face after realizing cinnamon is really, really hard to swallow. Is it staged? Probably, but who cares. It’s super funny!

 

 

 

 

Psy – Gangnam Style

 

Why We’ll Remember
The dance. The week this went viral, it was played in clubs across the US and everyone knew the dance. You’ll just have to take our word for it. Also, can we not talk about Gangnam Style ever again please?

 

 

 

Hot Cheetos & Takis

 

Why We’ll Remember
The hook. Someone in an office somewhere passed out from how adorable this was and needed to be kept on an intravenous diet of depression until their emotions stabilized. They only eat Hot Cheetos for lunch now.

 

 

 

Buttermilk The Goat

 

Why We’ll Remember
The leap. We like cute animal videos. That’s an Internet fact. This isn’t the cutest though. What made it go viral was Buttermilk’s aggressive leap off her sibling. The thrust was so powerful, it knocked Midnight (we assume that’s her name) off her feet.

 

 

Al Roker’s Face Breaks

Why We’ll Remember
The stare. No one knew what happened. We imagine the producers and director screaming into headsets trying to make sense of it all. The cameraman got confused, zooming in slowly as if to say, “should we just cut Al Broker out of the shot?”

 

 

 

 

Why You Asking All Them Questions

Why We’ll Remember
The hook. And the beat. And the faces. And the choreography. And just the whole thing in general. “Askin’ all them questions. Askin’ all them questions. Why you askin’ all them questions? Makin’ statements – assumin’.”

 

 

 

 

Frozen Pool Dive Fail

 

Why We’ll Remember
The snapback. Like, when his back snapped. Shouldn’t we have tested to see the water? Now your knees are shattered Gustav. Not only that, but you’re in negative 0 degree weather in a Speedo. Let’s evaluate our decisions from now on.

 

 

 

 

Oh My Dayum

Why We’ll Remember
The review. The original was hilarious by itself. Then this remix came out and it was just all up hill from there. Just remember, you bite the fry and the fry bites back. dayum Dayum DAYUM!

How To Make Realistic Resolutions You Can Easily Keep

December 24th, 2012 by Lifestyle Staff

As 2012 comes to a close, many of us are looking back eleven months and wondering what happened to those New Year’s resolutions we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year. While we hope that you’ve had success with many of those, we have found some of the most common resolutions that won’t require drastic lifestyle changes in order for you to keep in 2013.

clock-for-Xmas-Brochure-2011

Fitness and Weight Loss

Fitness-Scale

The push to get to your ideal size is a common goal, especially at the start of a new year. With months and months ahead of you, you might begin to develop a workout plan that you start with vigor, but one that fizzles out after the summer months and bikini season come to an end. In 2013, try developing a workout plan that’s not too complicated and can be kept for an entire twelve months. That way, when 2014 rolls around you won’t find yourself struggling to hit the same goal. Try things like replacing snacks like cookies and chips with healthier alternatives like fruits and vegetables. Also, try not to be a couch potato. Scheduling fifteen to thirty minute workouts into your day either early in the morning or before going to bed are easy ways to help you reach your goals.

 

Finances

Finances

One the most common pitfalls, when it comes to making a resolution of better spending, is making an unrealistic goal. Start the year off knowing exactly what your intended income will be and make a monthly budget that reflects that amount. While you might be subject to a raise at your job or monetary gifts from family and friends, consider any additional income money that whichcan be put into a savings account. Crystal Colclough, financial advisor and founder of BlackChicksWithCents.com says, “Determine your net worth by figuring out how much you have in assets and how much you have in debt. Create and budget then find the leaks and plug them”.

 

Occupational Therapy 

resume (1)

If you go to work every day and leave feeling like the day has been wasted on work that hasn’t fulfilled you in any way, setting a goal to land a new gig isn’t a bad idea, and while the job market may seem scarce, it is not an unrealistic goal. The beginning of the year is a perfect time to pull out that stellar resume of yours and update it, adding any new skills or awards you might have acquired during the previous year. Were you named employee of the month? Did your job offer training that allowed you to gain certification in an area you weren’t certified before? These are great examples of resume enhancements that can help you land that dream job you’ve been searching.

 

 

Don’t let a fear of not accomplishing certain goals stop you from making New Year’s resolutions for 2013! Write them down so that this time next year you can look back and check them all off.

‘What Were They Thinking?’ Celebrity Moments of 2012

December 19th, 2012 by Tiffany
2012 has been a year filled with outlandish relationships, fashion statements, trends, and thoughtless statements by celebrities that seemed thoughtless, leaving many of us with our mouths wide open. Celebrities from political figures, to singers, comedians, actors, gymnasts, and even to child stars have made their mark on 2012. We have compiled a list of the top 12 celebrity moments that have left you thinking ‘what the… -were they thinking?!’ Rewind with us, laugh and revisit some of the best celebrity moments as we say goodbye to 2012.

12.

Evelyn Lozada and Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson definitely shocked the world in August of 2012. Johnson, 34, was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge after he allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument. Lozada was treated for a “pretty good-sized” laceration to her forehead. While the situation was physically damaging to Lozada, it was detrimental to Johnson’s football career.  We bet he’ll never head-butt another soul.

11.

Of all the 2012 celebrity pregnancies, Snookie was by far the most surprising of them all. The high-paid reality star had a baby boy on August 26, but was once the life of the party on Jersey Shore.  The March 2012 confirmation of Polizzi’s pregnancy gave cause to speculate as to how the creative direction of her spinoff would be affected, as she would be unable to engage in the “hard-partying, booze-swilling” antics that had previously garnered high ratings for MTV. Many of us were shocked to find out this reformed party-goer would be putting down the liquor bottles for the baby bottles.

 

10.

Men and women were both surprised when Frank Ocean dropped the bombshell about his sexuality. Right before releasing his album Channel Orange he admitted to the world that he was bisexual. He stirred up so much of a buzz that even Beyonce wrote him a letter with handwritten words over a picture of Ocean saying, “Be fearless. Be honest. Be generous. Be brave. Be poetic. Be open. Be free. Be yourself. Be in love. Be happy. Be inspiration.” Shock to some, inspiration to many others. His Twitter response: “Don’t get it twisted, I’ll still take your girlfriend.”

9.

Comedian Katt Williams had a double whammy that left everyone wondering what is wrong with him?! After a high speed police chase in California, Katt went into a Target store and was caught on camera slapping an employee! He then did a tearful news interview after another altercation at a Seattle restaurant saying he was “done with stand-up comedy”.

If you missed it watch an out of it Katt Williams give his statement after the incidents.

8.

After the birth certificate conspiracy, Donald Trump’s Twitter rants and his again total disrespect for the president after President Barack Obama’s victorious win lands him on our 2012 ‘What Were They Thinking’ list.  Once the state of Ohio was called for President Obama and sealed the win for his re-election, Trump took to Twitter saying: “Barack Obama’s win was a disgusting injustice.” He even tried to rally his fans against an election that he called a ‘travesty’. Who other than the multi-billionaire himself could blatantly disrespect the president like this? Definitely left us wondering where is mind really was, and what reality he lives in.
Obama had the best comedic response to Trump on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, watch here.

7.

While some were onto Rihanna and Chris Brown early on, others were shocked by her Tweets and Instagram pictures confirming that they were officially back together. She convinced us on Oprah’s Life Chapter that she had forgiven him but moved on… we should have known better. While some were excited, many were left thinking  ‘what is she thinking?!’ I suppose next year will tell whether it will be the ‘dynamic duo’ or ‘destructive dummies’. To be continued…

6.

porsha-d-stewart
Real Housewives of Atlanta newest cast member Porsha Stewart may not be known for her own name or accomplishments, but she is definitely known for her dumb statements. Her ‘265 days a year’ statement left everyone wondering if she had any brains in that pretty head of hers. Although her point- ‘it’s not just about feeding the hungry only on Thanksgiving, it’s an everyday situation’ -was genuine, so was her stupidity with her next remark. “I mean, this is 265 days a year!” Porsha could definitely make a better name away for herself by talking less.

5. 

 The Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj cat fight definitely tops this year’s WTF moments. The unlikely duo’s brawl seemed to come out of no where and spiraled out of control with Nicki claiming she would shoot her! Due to her discomfort and Nicki’s ‘unpredictable’ behavior Mariah then had her security increased following the incident. While producers called speculation surrounding the spat ‘inaccurate’, a spokesman for the show said: “This is one of the best, most passionate, dynamic and invested judging panels we’ve ever had.” Coincidence or not? We think not, but it still makes for a shocking moment we wont forget.

4.

This before and after picture shows the weight-gain transformation Lady Gaga purposely underwent, launching what she called a “body revolution”. Known for her rainbow wigs, outlandish fashion, and self-empowerment-themed music Lady Gaga has always sought to make a point. The above picture went viral after hitting the internet, while she used it as an opportunity to reveal her own struggles in hopes of empowering her “little monsters”.
In case you missed it this news clip from abcNews explains her message and reasons behind it.

3.

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson has definitely made a name for herself this year. Landing her own reality show on TLC, she has also recently appeared on Barbara Walters‘s Most Fascinating People of 2012 list. While she has had many memorable moments  on both Toddlers and Tiaras and  spin-off Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, her guest appearance- or lack of appearance- on the Dr. Drew show lands her on our 2012 memorable moments list as she defiantly expresses her boredom on camera.

If you missed it watch her doze off on Dr. Drew here.

2.

Brad Pitt had everyone in a state of confusion as he rambled through the latest Chanel No. 5 perfume commercial. Sounding as if he had no script, he talked about the world turning, his luck, his fate and left everyone wondering what the commercial was about. Not even 24 hours later Saturday Night Live and several other YouTube clips surfaced mocking the commercial and Pitt’s confusing role.
Check out the controversial commercial for yourself.

1.

minaj2

Nicki Minaj confused, shocked and even scared a few during her February performance at the 2012 Grammy’s in Los Angeles. She performed Roman Holiday sitting next to The Pope  and called the performance “The exorcism of [Nicki‘s alter ego] Roman.” Choreographed by Laurieann Gibson,  it featured religious imagery, pyrotechnics, and backup dancers dressed as monks. The performance may -or may not- have been a mock of the Illuminati conspiracies, but it definitely rubbed many the wrong way.

And that’s a wrap! Hopefully celebrities will give their statements a little more thought before putting them out into the world in 2013. Since that might be inevitable, we’re already excited to compile next year’s ‘What Were They Thinking’ moments. Until then…
Tell us your favorite ‘What Were They Thinking’ celebrity moment. What made you laugh or left your mouth wide open? Tell us below…

Work The Trend: A Guide To Working Oxblood Into Your Daily Wardrobe

November 15th, 2012 by Fashion Staff

Undoubtedly one of the hottest trends for the fall is the color Oxblood. I personally hate the name…why can’t I just call it burgundy or plum like it’s been since the beginning of time!?!?! HA! Aside for the disdain for the name, there is no questioning its presence in this falls lineup of “must haves.”  Celebs and fashionistas have flocked to the trend rocking it in a variety of ways. This variety adds to the allure of the trend and it’s capacity to be worn with most anything and worn in almost any way.

This amazing leather skirt, priced at $925 definitely makes a fall statement in traditional McQueen fashion!

 

Avant Garde fashion house Alexander McQueen took this trend and fused it together with classic fall favorite, leather! This amazing leather skirt, priced at $925 definitely makes a fall statement in traditional McQueen fashion! Wear it with cable knit tights and ankle booties to complete the look!

 

Unlike some trends, oxblood is not limited to a particular item like military jackets or coated denim. Oxblood can be worn as a clothing item (sweater, blouse, skirt, jeans), an accessory (shoes, purse, necklace, ring, scarf, hat), or as a beauty item (nail polish, lipstick) making it an affordable option for any budget.

There really is no wrong way to wear it as I’ve seen it rocked “all oxblood everything” or as an accent piece for an outfit. Need some style inspirations? Check out these outfits that cater to any budget.

 

 

 

 

Looking for something more formal? This tuxedo blazer from Elizabeth & James $395 is also successful fusion of two hot trends.

 

 

 

Sequin Dress – Topshop – $130

Ring – Zara Simon Cross Gold Ring – $180  Shoes – Christian Louboutin Daf- $1,075

Clutch – Dareen Hakim Le Icon – $305

Cuff – Dorothy Perkins – $17

 

 

 

 

But what if you’re not into leather skirts, dresses or tuxedo jackets? You can still be on-trend in oxblood skinny jeans! Super skinny jeans were all the rage this past summer and they are back for the fall season in oxblood and plum! Retailers from Wet Seal $29 to Mother the Looker $196 feature them so price is no barrier to this must!

 

 

You can’t go wrong with oxblood skinnies…

BET Hip Hop Awards 2012: Fellas, Fashion & A Few Tech Fetishes

October 2nd, 2012 by Tiffany

Before the confirmed fights, chain snatchings and melees was the BET Hip Hop Awards Red Carpet interviews.  Since the BET Hip Hop Awards took place in none other than the heart of Southern hip hop music, Atlanta, GA. it’s only right that the talent as well as the fashion here is definitely in a league of its own. We hit the red carpet to find out what fashions, trends, and gadgets a few of Hip Hop’s rising stars &  celebs just can’t live without!

 

Diggy says when it comes to fashion he’s an accessories kind of dude. “I like neck wear and bracelets a lot, but definitely love kicks a lot too.” One gadget he can’t leave the house without “My iPhone! I’ll turn around for that.” I just knew Diggy had the iPhone 5, but looks like his schedule hasn’t allowed for it yet. “I’ve been traveling everywhere so much since it came out that I haven’t been able to make it to the AT&T store, but I’m going to get it though.”

We spoke to Mr. “Snapback and Tattoos” himself, Driicky Graham. To my surprise snapbacks are not his fashion must-haves on a daily basis. “Fox tails and I love Louie V. belts, I got one on right now actually.”  He doesn’t have the iPhone 5 yet either, but says he’s still “rocking with Siri on the 4S, so I’m good for now, but I’m definitely going to check out the 5.” He will be one of the many rappers part of the this year’s Cyphers.

 

Super producer Mr. Bangladesh (left) definitely gets my vote for most interesting style and outlook on technology. The Grammy winning producer has worked with names like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Lil’ Wayne, and his latest project with Brandy. When asked about his fearless style he says– “This is just me, I came out of the womb with {style like} this.” I asked if he was as advanced in technology as he was in fashion and had the iPhone 5? He definitely gave the most interesting answer unlike any other celeb– “No, I’m not into the hustle. One thing about Bang, you’re not going to hustle Bang. Technology is the hustle world. There’s nothing different in the iPhone 5 that they couldn’t have put in the iPhone 4 or the 1. Apple has these smart technicians- you can’t tell me that they didn’t think about making the picture clearer before the next one was created. You know what I’m saying? It’s a hustle. I have the old iPhone not because I wanted it but because I was in the U.K. and they told me I needed it. I’m not for the hustles.”

His newest artist Fast Life (above right) says he prefers to get his clothes from all over the world. ” I got some Balenciaga, Fendi, and vintage Valentino type . But my favorite piece I’d have to say is my gold… I can’t leave the house without my gold.” He has a mixtape coming soon and is striving to be the next big name under Bangladesh Records.

 

Looks like the iPhone 5 is still on many celeb’s to-do list, while others refuse to be “hustled” by it. So WHO was the first to boast having the iPhone 5 on the red carpet?

 

Q Parker from the Atlanta based singing group 112 was the first one on the red carpet that could boast of having the newest iPhone.

“I don’t really have a style, I just like to be expressive. I’m not afraid of textures or colors.”  That was clear considering he was the only male on the red carpet wearing sequins. “However I feel that’s what I do.” So what does Q look for a lady to have as a part of her style package? –“I don’t really get into that. I just really like for a lady to be confident in whatever she puts on and know that she’s sexy. If she knows it, I know it. Confidence is the whole package.” Ladies take notes!

When I told Q he was the first one I’ve come across with the iPhone 5 he said–“You know a lot of people don’t have it because they’re letting the glitches get out of it. A lot of people have been having problems with the new operating system. Luckily I haven’t had any problems and I love the new iPhone.”

 

Here are a few more red carpet surprises, show downs, show outs:

Rapper 2 Chainz showed up on the red carpet looking like a bag of skittles, but also like a dad. He brought along his daughter and expecting partner as well. Who would have known he was a family man?

We’re still left to wonder who showed up as the Ninja Turtle squad…

 

Cash Out and his Chucky doll accessory was the loudest fashion statement on the red carpet by far. This is definitely a red carpet first.

Fans can look forward to another year of Hip Hop greats & hot acts rocking the Atlanta stage next week.  Rapper LL Cool J spoke in a tribute to hip-hop manager Chris Lighty, who committed suicide last month behind his Bronx townhouse. Q-Tip, Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott and 50 Cent took the stage to perform, as did Rick Ross, P. Diddy, 2 Chainz and Future.

Check out more photos from the Hip Hop Awards red carpet below… You can check out the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards & Performances Tuesday 10/9 at 8P/7C. Only on BET!

FLOTUS Michelle Obama WOWS & INSPIRES At #DNC2012

September 5th, 2012 by Christen

;

Reporting LIVE from the Democratic National Convention FLOTUS Michelle Obama showed her support for an All-American designer during her Tuesday night speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC.

FLOTUS, 48, looked fabulous in a pink floral Tracy Reese dress and coordinating J. Crew heels — proving once again, you don’t need to shell out big designer bucks to look chic. The Detroit-born Reese’s designs have been a favorite of the First Lady’s during her four-plus years in the spotlight alongside her husband, President Barack Obama. (In May, Obama wore a sophisticated blue Tracy Reese dress for her Ebony magazine cover).

As “mom-in-chief” watching her exclaim how much she still loves & believes in President Barack Obama like never before, is a true testament to what a partnership is really about. At times, on the cusp of tears while discussing her father’s diligence in working and providing for her education, she also compared President Obama’s upbringing & stance about financial aid “…to Barack, these issues aren’t political – they’re personal…” Read more of FLOTUS speech HERE.

What was your favorite fashionable moments from FLOTUS? Did she do a great job of convincing Americans that President Obama is the right man for presidency in 2012?
