I'm loving EVERYTHING about this easy, breezy look. Although her outfit is casual and laid back, her make-up and hair screams GLAM!! This perfect look is great for running errands, or having a night out for drinks with your girls (or guy). Beyonce sports her own "Flawless" Sweatshirt ($65; SEE DIY HERE), a pair of "VISCIOUS" leather panel jeans by J.Brand and cute leather shoes with gold buckles by Jefferey Campbell "Litrane" ($267) . I'm definitely going to try to re-create the jeans. It looks pretty simple. A pair of jeans, and leather, or faux leather fabric. BCBG SOLD OUT of a similar pair. They were ONLY $98. There's 1 left on Amazon.

I love LOVE and all things associated with it. A few hours ago, (singer, mother of 1 and sister to Jessica Simpson) Ashlee Simpson (29) tweeted, confirming her beau, (son of legendary Diana Ross) Evan Ross (25) has indeed proposed! I'm soo excited for them! They've been dating for about 8 months now. I first saw the news on the FACEBOOK page of Evan's older, beautiful, ever so stylish, actress sister, Tracee Ellis Ross. Congratulations to the happy couple! I wish them a long life of happiness and bliss!
The love of my life said YES!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/8CI6ovBAA1

Hi Vixens! A lot of you asked me questions about how I created the sweatshirt posted to my INSTAGRAM page. I'm going to try to make this as detailed as possible without confusing you. *fingers crossed*
What you'll need:
The image you'd like to iron on
Transfer Paper (For Dark if using a dark colored fabric; For Light if using light colored fabric)
Iron (Make sure ALL WATER IS REMOVED FROM IRON)
Shirt (or whatever you'd like to apply your image to)
PREPARING YOUR IMAGE
Okay...This is how I created my shirt.
First, I tried looking for a font similar to Bey's. I got tired of looking, so I just screenshot the photo on Beyonce's store site HERE. I saved it, opened it with 'PAINT' , Clicked 'SELECT' and selected only the word, right-clicked to copy, and pasted into a 'NEW' paint page. There, I resized it at 500%.
The transfer paper I used is by NextStyle. You can find it at Walmart in the craft section or online HERE.
Load the paper into the printer with the line facing up. Or load it so that your image prints on the UNLINED side of the paper.
Next, go to your image on the computer, open it, scroll over PRINT and select PAGE SET UP.
Choose "LANDSCAPE", set all margins to 0 (top, bottom, left, right). Mine didn't actually stay at 0 once I entered it in...I just left it that way. Click 'OK'. THEN PRINT.
PLUG UP YOUR IRON NOW!
Let ink dry for a minute or so, cut out letters, peel the backing off, place a pillowcase or sheet underneath your shirt, place image/letters onto shirt, MAKE SURE IT LOOKS EXACTLY HOW YOU WANT YOUR FINISHED PRODUCT TO LOOK. Next, grab the vellum/wax paper and place over the image and press down on with the iron. Be sure to concentrate on the edges of the letters/image. Let the shirt cool off and FINITO!!!
If you'd like to create your OWN WORD or PHRASE with a "BEYONCE-ESQUE" font, you can find the font I used for the shirt below ------>HERE. It's called SF MOVIE POSTER CONDENSED. Just open a blank document in "PAINT" , select the SF MOVIE POSTER CONDENSED FONT and type whatever word/phrase you'd like.
You can also reference this video I did of a shirt my daughter wanted.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE SWEET COMMENTS AND MESSAGES! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS!!
HAVE FUN, and ENJOY YOUR CREATION!!

Best week ever for Beyonce. Not so good week for Target! I'm loving Yonce for this right now. I know it had to be Yonce and not Beyonce, because this was just too GANGSTA! Earlier this week, Target announced that they will not be carrying Beyonce's latest PLATINUM album. They stated,
"At Target we focus on offering our guests a wide assortment of physical CDs, and when a new album is available digitally before it is available physically, it impacts demand and sales projections," a Target spokesperson told TheWrap. "While there are many aspects that contribute to our approach and we have appreciated partnering with Beyonce in the past, we are primarily focused on offering CDs that will be available in a physical format at the same time as all other formats. At this time, Target will not be carrying Beyonce’s new self-titled album 'Beyonce.'"
To add to insult to injury, it was also announced that Target has experienced a 40M security breach. The chain said customers who made purchases by swiping their cards at terminals in its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have had their accounts exposed!!
King Bey killed two birds with one stone when she showed up at a Walmart (Target's Competitor) December 20th in a small Massachusetts town (Tewksbury) to buy her cd and do a little shopping. Us Beyhivers all know how Beyonce love(d) Target. I guess this was her way of saying "YOU CAN STICK A FORK IN ME...CUZ I'M DONE WITH YOU!" lol So she said "F U Target, and semi-promoted her new CD" (as if she needed it). That's what you call MULTITASKING! I know her fans were ELATED! I'm sure she gained NEW fans just because of that.
Beyonce shopped for a few toys and crayons, held a few babies..and GET THIS....SHE GAVE EVERY CUSTOMER ON SITE A $50 Walmart GiftCard. How gracious is she?? I know some of you would say, "Oh, that's nothing to her." But, it's the thought that matters. She didn't have to give ANYTHING at all. #TEAMYONCE all the way!
