Kanye West and President-Elect Donald Trump?

No, this is not a bad dream, this is real. Kanye West met with president-elect Donald Trump in New York this morning.

Kanye sported a horrible new look of dyed blonde hair and was sure to get his picture taken with Trump post a brief meeting. Kanye was recently in the hospital and apparently has still lost his mind. He stated he still plans to run for president, but now in 2024 after Trump (lol). He also told a crowd at his recent concert that he didn’t vote in the last election, but if he did he would have voted for Trump… really? These “friends” have a lot in common, like reality TV experience and Twitter rants, but let’s hope for everyones sake Kanye is kept far away from politics and we can resume back to normal life soon.

Book of the month.

I first heard about Jessica Bennett’s, Feminist Fight Club after Lena Dunham promoted it on her Instagram, after looking it up I figured as a modern woman I should be keeping up to date on current feminist movements.

“Engaging, hilarious and practical—full of simple tools that every woman should have at her disposal. I will proudly proclaim myself a card-carrying member of the FFC.”– SHERYL SANDBERG, COO OF FACEBOOK AND AUTHOR, LEAN IN

“Part manual, part manifesto”, Bennett views the work place as a fight club of sorts, minus the actual punching. The entire book is a compilation of different issues and stories that real women have experienced. Together they vent about sexisim in the workplace and trade tips on how to cope and conquer their problems. The book has hard stats, experience and a no BS tone that keeps you flipping the colorful comic pages. Factual, funny, and fab this book is a must read for any woman in any stage of their career!

Can we talk about the AMAs?

If you stayed awake to watch the American Music awards last night, you saw some amazing outfits…and some that should have stayed home. Here are a few of my thoughts on the night overall:

Bruno, Sting, Fifth Harmony, John Legend and Gaga killed it, I wish the same could be said for Dj Khaled and Twenty One Pilots.

You can watch all of the performances here: http://www.billboard.com/articles/events/amas/7581529/amas-2016-performances-watch

Selena Gomez, she looked stunning and effortless. Also, her acceptance speech for fav female artist was a hit of the night.

Hillary Clinton Concession Speech

“To all the women and especially the young women who put their faith in this campaign and in me, I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion” – Hillary Clinton 

It’s been a long and eventful election journey. Among the varying political options, there are many Americans that are unsettled today after the final ballots were counted.

In my opinion, I was excited at the thought of a woman breaking one of the biggest glass ceilings in existence, and I’m sad it won’t be Hillary. She showed her class and poise till the end, and that should be commended. Team Hillz forever!
