Is this thing on? 

Hey guys! 

It's been a long time since I've updated here. For those who are wondering what's going on with DTY, I'm unsure. We had hopes of bringing it back but with life, things happen and you sometime grow out of situations. 

Don't Trip ...yet! Was my first shot at writing for a wide audience and I would again like to thank Whitney for giving me a shot! It's been an amazing journey and have given me the tools to branch out on my own. 

Because this is my home but I'm not the boss of this home I decided to branch out on my own and I hope you guys take a chance on a girl who loves fashion, music and entertainment. 

Visit me at www.taneamoniquex.com or follow the action directly on Instagram at @taneamoniquexdotcom   

What I was able to bring here you'll receive that times twenty! 

 It's been real, DTY! <3

0 love notes

Back in early 08'-09' Keri Hilson was beginning to make her mark as an R&B singer in the music industry. As things went well for Keri she was accused of dissing Beyoncé on the 'Turnin' Me On' remix. 

“Your vision cloudy if you think that you the best, You can dance, she can sing, but need to move it to the left,” she sings. 

"She need to go have some babies, She needs to sit down, she fadin’, Go ‘head and tell them folks how long I been writing your songs, I been puttin you on, just check the credits.”

The lyrics sent fans and the media into an uproar and Keri's social media life really hasn't been the same since. 

In an interview with Revolt TV super producer Timbaland revealed he and Keri collaborated on a song, 'sorry', dedicated to his fall out with Jay-z and Keri explaining her situation with Beyoncé. 

"I got this one song that I did with Keri on my album called ‘Sorry,’ and Keri actually tells the story about the whole Beyoncé thing and how she was sorry about it because she wasn’t really talking about Beyoncé but other people." 

The song will appear on Timbaland’s upcoming album Shock Value 3.

Shit Bloggers Wear

1 love notes

Once upon a time I used to love Tumblr. While in my dorm, I'd spend most of my time locked in my room, snacks surrounding me and scrolling my tumblr timeline for hours. The different people, styles and inspiration you come across were so fascinating. 

After a while all the inspiration and unique styles began to fade and everything became the same. Could the re-blog function be the worst tumblr invention ever? Maybe. The same Jordan sneakers, designer handbags, tumblr famous kid and food porn found its way to everyone's page. It got so repetitive even bloggers started to look the same.  

Yesterday I was browsing wth and decided to visit the Tumblr world, I came across this page 'Shit Bloggers Wear'. The blog features sketches of your favorite bloggers favorite shit to wear, haha! Check out some of my favorite sketches below, I'm sure you or your 'favorite' blogger has one or all items in their closet.
