Fierce and fearless beauty of the week: Tyrese ” Baby Boy” Gibson.

Yes, R&B; singer Tyrese Gibson is our first male fierce and fearless beauty of the week! He started his career at the age of 14, traveling to talent shows in Los Angeles’  Watts sector. Gibson’s  hard work paid off when he finally got a gig where he starred in a Coca-Cola commercial! This opportunity allowed him to create his 1998 self-title debut album and later his sophomore album called 2000 Watts.

Not only is Tyrese gifted at singing but he stays positive( and he is not bad on the eyes)! We really enjoyed his acting in the films of Baby Boy and 2 Fast 2 furious! And his song Lately is one of our favorites of all time! But the reason he is our Fierce and fearless beauty of the week is based on his recent blog post  on Tyrese’s World called This is crazy!

 We love this blog post because he promotes never taking a break from trying to be the best you. He is telling people you have to get off your ass and earn your dreams, rather than wait for God to simply give it to you. We strongly believe in self-initiative as well! We hope you gain wisdom from reading his blog post! It is rather fierce and we love the brutal honesty! You can never go wrong with honesty, sets you free!

Until next time, stay fierce!

Self-love and Self- initiative movement.

By Briana Booker

 Last night when I was whining about my life and feeling uncertain about my future, a very dear friend told me what i needed to hear than rather hear! She told me to stop feeling sorry for myself, snap out of it, and be thankful for what I do have and not exactly what I want to have in life. What great wisdom! Sometimes friends and loved ones are the instruments life, or i like to think God, gives us to see us through our struggles.

We have officially decided to make a promise to each other to name at least 3 things we are blessed for each day and 3 good things we like about ourselves. I would like to add 3 good things we like about others around us as well to this promise! I feel it will help us stay positive, love ourselves and be self-initiative in our goals and dreams.

I hope Fromgirltogirl readers try this as well! If you can not appreciate life as is, how can you live it?

Best deals in town: DSW Rewards!

   My friend has nice feet.

By Briana Booker

So, this weekend during my birthday outing I became a fan and rewards member of DSW shoes ! I think it is a great deal and I am so using it to my advantage to revamp my shoe wardrobe! There are so many fabulous benefits at DSW!

One, you get a $10 reward certificate for every 1500 points you earn for buying shoes at DSW! You get 10 points per dollar on regular priced items and 5 points on clearance!

Yellow is so fierce.

1500 into 10 points is $150 dollars. An average pair of shoes cost about $ 34-55 dollars, so this is not really a bad deal at all,over time! They allow double points during certain events in the year. This allows you to quickly collect rewards!

Easy for Play and work.

Plus, they send you a $5 certificate for your birthday! Not to mention, you can receive free shipping on qualifying orders!

It is free to sign up! I am definitely getting me plenty of comfy but stylish Steve Maddens from here! Keep it classy and fierce!

I love these shoes!

Friends for life!

Must eats: Assaggi Mozzarella Bar in Bethesda

Grigliata mista di mare
Mix grill of calamari, white shrimp and codfish with grilled radicchio

By Briana Booker

  This past weekend my friends and I came across a great Italian restaurant called Assaggi Mozzarella Bar during Bethesda’s restaurant week! It has been in service since May 1st 2008! What a great find! The concept of the menu is good quality cooking at a great price ( Lunch: $4 to $15 Dinner: $11 to $29 depending on dish,but definitely worth the dollar)! Assaggi makes homemade pasta, fresh seafood, veal and delicious beef! Not to mention, great vegetarian dishes!

 Everything is the perfect texture,full of flavor and healthy ( You have to try the bread! It is crispy on the surface and remarkably soft in the center)! It makes you fall in love with the Chef, Domenico Cornacchia, and the staff! They were extremely hospitable!  I was able to obtain the seating I requested for my birthday and they wished me a happy birthday!

The Chef, Domenico Cornacchia. Very fierce!

On the Assaggi Mozzarella Bar in Bethesda , Chef Cornacchia states his goal was to open up his own restaurant that specializes in classic Italian dishes and has an inviting interior design! Assaggi was all this and more! The interior design is warm and welcoming! It is helping me think of some great ideas for my apartment interior decorating project.

 I recommend this place for a quiet lunch or dinner with friends, family or with your significant other! Try it out the next time you are in Bethesda! We definitely left happy and full!

Here is the location and some pictures of our meal:

Must hear music: Despicable over Eminem!

By Briana Booker

 Why is Eminem so sick with it? This track Despicable over is too fierce. Eminem always keeps #Ripe100 lyrically!

Oh, and I am a very firm believer in what Eminem is talking about in this song.  What goes around, comes around!  Last shot, give it all you got! Yes, we are going to keep blogging real talk, people all over the world need to start hearing the truth! And most of all, stop being fake and corrupt. Shady is as shady does.

I will leave on this note:

” Trying to give me the finger, it kinda like giving the spider the web. I am just going to spin it, and try to use it to my advantage!”~ Eminem.

Hug a hater and recover is the movement for the week! Check out the video below:

How to stay Fierce for finals: Top 10 study tips!

By Briana Booker

 It is that time of the year again! Finals! Stress! But fear not, it is almost summer and here are some top 10 ways to prevent yourself from being in a frenzy! At Fromgirltogirl we keep it Ripe100 and fierce! Read below our top 10 tips! These tips will help you stay on track and stay fierce!

Here are the top ten fierce tips to success!

1. Have a Positive Attitude

If you believe you are going to fail, you will probably fail. Yes, it might be tough,but who told you life would be easy? You got this! Keep that positive energy going and surround yourself with like-minded positive attitude people! Most successful people never implied they could not do something. Positive energy goes a long way toward having a successful life!

I always remember the little engine that could! Great book!

2. Make a Plan

Ask your Professor or teacher what is this test going to cover! Do not  put yourself in a position where you fail a final because you were too afraid to speak up! You have a voice for a reason!
If you missed a few classes, ask people for notes and join study groups! You can laugh together about how much the class annoys you! Laughter makes you live longer! Chin up like Charlotte told Wilbert in Charlotte’s web!

Make sure to make a list of the most important topics covered! This will be your study guide!

 Circle material  you know will require extra time to study.  I do it all the time! I also type notes down or write repetitively to remember. I will talk answers out to people studying the same things to make sure I know what is going on! It helps very much!

3. The Night Before

Do not be a fool and cram the night before. It does not work. If you do not know shit from this course to begin with, you are a lost cause. Just keeping that Ripe100 on you! My best advice is to do a quick review right before bed and go to bed early! It works like a charm!

4. The Morning of the Test

Make sure you eat. A full stomach really helps! Have breakfast! Get to the exam early. Do a 10 minute power study before the test. It will help you feel more confident and you might remember things easier by doing this task.

5. Test Time
Before the test starts, have everything you need- pencil, pen, paper, calculator. Be prepared.

Look at how the test is scored. Take more time and effort on what will be more costly, if it is wrong, especially if you have very limited time.
6. Manage Your Time

Scan through the test quickly before starting.  Easy questions will help you save time and build confidence. Then, you will have plenty of time for the hard ones.

7. Fuck, I’m Stuck!

Do not  get worried or frustrated. Reread the question to make sure you understand it, and then try to solve it the best way you know how. If you are still stuck, circle it and move on. You can come back to it later. What if you have no idea? Review your options and make the best guess you can. Like the Nike commercial…just do it!

8. Multiple-Choice Questions

The process of elimination can help you choose the correct answer in a multiple-choice question. Start by crossing off the answers that could not be right. Then spend your time focusing on the best possible answer.

9. Neatness Counts

 Be sure that your writing is legible during essay segments. Make sure to you erase your mistakes. For machine-scored tests, fill in the spaces carefully.

10. I’m Done!

When you complete the last item on the test, check the clock and go back to review your answers, making sure that you did not make any careless mistakes.  Do not put the right answer to the wrong question! Spend the last remaining minutes going over the hardest problems.

Good luck and happy summer!

Keep it simple: Interior design tips for luxurious living without the cost!

My goal is to get the area to look kinda like this!

By Briana Booker

In the midst of redesigning a room, home or apartment? So am I! Here at Fromgirltogirl we love giving advice and receiving advice on things that matter to you and us! At the moment, I am planning on revamping an area space that I prefer to be cozy, harmonious  and welcoming! I like to call this project ” Enriching my world, one room at a time.” Spiffy, right?

I am a firm believer that luxurious living does not have to be complex! Life is at its best when simplistic!  Presently,I live in Washington Dc. I am a struggling college student. Simple is always key in my life! However, nothing is ever quite simple.

But soon there will be interior design videos on Fromgirltogirl YouTube page ( http://www.youtube.com/user/Breelavie ) following my interior design adventures for the summer! It should be swell!

I am going for a Moroccan, mixed with Asian design feel! I am excited about it! Full of color,innovative, and a happy dwelling is the goal!

 I will be starting by collecting funky and spicy pillow arrangements! I will be getting cool candles! And of course colorful fabrics!

If you would like to donate any pillows you just do not care for, email me at Fromgirltogirl@gmail.com! And don’t forget to video tape your design tips! We, at Fromgirltogirl, will post them under the  title of ” Enriching my world, one room at a time.”  And of course, you will have your own by line( Author title for that submission)!

 Let the adventure begin!
