She Get's Them Custom..You a Customer: "King Bey" Nabs Her Own Isabel Marants

Beyonce was spotted rocking her very own "King Bey" Isabel Marant Sneaker Wedge's in Houston, TX over all-Star weekend (above) and also during rehearsals for the Super Bowl (below). PMK has been known to make custom designs for famed celebrities so it's only right that Beyonce Knowles-Carter got her very own appropriately called "King Bey" by Isabel Marant.

PMK kicked off 2013 by "taking the Isabel Marant sneaker wedge to the cobbling block to create a one-of-a-kind design for R&B Royalty and POP sensation Beyonce Knowles-Carter" with her approval of course! How incredible is that? The perks of celebrity I tell you. See below:

 According to PMK...."the Isabel Marant sneaker wedge back to the beginning of time and gives it what they call the Eden treatment. A hybrid of land and sea skins are used to create this handcrafted creation. Stingray, Ostrich, calfs fur, Crocodile, and Anaconda give the already impeccable design attitude and the tones of white mixed with gold stitched details produces a feeling of elegance, mimicking the southern belle’s sweet and fierce persona. Perfectly made describes this design best."

I'm a little obsessed with sneaker wedges, excited to order mine! Are you loving the seaker wedge trend?

This is what 27 looks like...thank you all for celebrating with me! Truly blessed beyond measure.

Something in the way you move. 


"Stop pretending I have it all together, and if i'm scared, be scared. Allow it. Release it. Move on."

 LIV on Sundays.

"The best thing is looking back and realizing how incredible life is. If you don't take the time to think about it, analyze your life, you'll never realize all the dots that are connected."
...missing Miami like crazy!

New reading material... "Is everyone really happy or are they all really good at pretending?"

If it wasn't for T.O.N.Y. (had a blast at her show!)
Last week of February....bittersweet indeed! Hope everyone has an amazing week!
*bows out gracefully*


Last week, I got wind of such a BEAUTY-ful collaboration that I knew I had to share with you after my birthday hiatus was over (lol). Rihanna celebrated her birthday in Hawaii with family and friends while also letting her stans know via instagram that she would have her very own line of MAC cosmetics. According to the MAC cosmetics agreement the new line would help her creative juices. We here that there will be multiple collections of color cosmetics set to be released this year.
The first product to launch will be RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by her favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo. With Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concert set to start pretty soon the new collection will be available on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where there will also be MAC pop-up shop on the first night. Are you excited?! I'm attending her concert in DC in April so I won't be in NY to see the pop-up shop but I'll be at my nearest MAC counter to get my RiRi Woo!
“When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC,” said Rihanna in a exclusive interview with WWD. “Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”
