It always comes down to my gut and my gut tells me everything I need to know

Olivia Pope

We all know what tonight is. Scandal time. That’s right. Ok, I’m currently obsessed with this show, we’ve all figured that out by now. Am I the only one? Lately, I’ve found myself in random conversations discussing Scandal. It’s not just me people. My head is spinning, wondering, What is going to happen tonight? I can’t even concentrate on my work. If only Shonda Rhimes was my auntie and I could pick her brain.. Lol..

I even dressed for the part. I didn’t take pics this morning though because I didn’t have time. I will try to snap a few and post when I get home. I’m having a Scandal partayyyy…

I love these characters, and Columbus Short as Harrison Wright. My, my, my, my I could just… Emmmm. I can’t even say it. I just want to breathe him. Can you blame me. Look at him!

I have to go. I’ve got work to do. I just keep playing Scandal quotes in my head. Yep! It’s official, I’m crazy as a loon. Get crazy with me and enjoy a few..

Olivia fixes things. That’s who she is. You need fixing, I don’t need to know your story. We all have a story. You’re a stray dog and Olivia took you in. Don’t question it

Hello Dears,
As promised, I rummaged through my closet to find a hint of Olivia Pope inspired gear. Notice I said “inspired” because nobody can do it like Liv. I started out with a suit but then, I felt too hot.. Maybe tomorrow I’ll rock the suit. Today, I opted for an Ann Taylor dress from loft. I found this dress out thrifting a few years ago. One thing I remember is the tag was still there. Score!
Well by now, you all must know, I’ve been infected by the Scandal virus. This show is like a super bug. Anybody who tunes in to just one episode will surely be infected. There are so many things I love about Liv. She is so smart its down right ridiculous. You notice how when she’s on her grind, her sophistication shines through even more. With one comment she can take you down, or build you up. She commands her audience and she knows who she is. There’s just that one flaw. She’s having an affair with a married man, and typically I wouldn’t root for this type. However, this is TV and in my primetime TV world, this woman can do no wrong.
Ten things I love about Olivia Pope
1. She’s fearless
2. She gives the underdog a helping hand (i.e, her whole team)
3. She is a business owner
4. She has influence
5. She is a gladiator.. Lol
6. She’s a leader
7. She challenges those around her
8. She’s strong
9. She’s a fashionista
10. She has the same name as my baby niece. (isn’t she gorgeous)



I’m wearing:
Dress- Ann Taylor- thrifted
Blazer- Target
Shoes- DSW
Briefcase- thrifted
Necklace- gift
Bracelets- thrifted
Watch- Michael Kors

I hope you enjoyed the look!
Don’t forget to tune in to the season finale of Scandal Thursday 10pm on ABC.
Have a wonderful day Dears
Peace and blessings

Last night’s episode of scandal was explosive!!! Omg. You all watched Scandal right? I can’t believe that Mr President has me rooting for him even though he’s cheating on his wife. Not only did he fall in love with Liv but he slept with Amanda Tanner. I’m not supposed to like him and his sorted past right? But yet, I love him. And let’s talk about Olivia Pope. How can Fitz not love everything about her, hell, I’m in love with her my damn self. She’s powerful, resourceful, strong, beautiful, brilliant, she gets the job done and… the leader of the free world loves her. Olivia Pope is bad to the bone!

By the middle of last nights episode we learned how the web was spun and how Fitz and Liv became one.

Not that I needed an explanation, as I believed in them all along. Even though I know it could never work. Fitz can’t leave Millie for Liv, not if he expects to continue to run the country. Now Liv who cleans everyone’s messes is confronted by a mess of her own. How will she salvage herself? Her reputation? How will she save her beloved Fitz? I don’t know, but what I do know is that I’m going to be right there watching every minute of it.

Can you believe next week is the season finale. It’s too soon. I’m not ready to let these characters go. I’m a slave to this Thursday night ten o’clock slot. Shonda Rhimes is brilliant. This Gray’s Anatomy extraordinar has truly outdone herself. I want to pick her brain. I wanna know how she has hooked America. Actually, I want to know why the hell she let Billy bad azz stab Gideon with a pair of scissors. Boom! I felt embarrassed as I screamed out at the TV extremely loud, “NO!!”. My kids bust into my bedroom to see if I was ok. Lol.. This show had me going. I really didn’t know when I started watching several weeks ago that Gideon would be bleeding to death on the floor of the VP’s man main. Billy was the father of Amananda Tanners baby. Gideon uncovered it all. Ah ha! Well, I didn’t see that coming either. Shonda Rhimes got me again. Did the VP possibly set the whole thing up? Or Did Billy’s ambitions take control? He just used Amanda, and even though she got caught up, in the end, she wanted to do the right thing. But her end, came to soon. I hope the reporter in Gideon made him smart enough to make a record of his findings before he went and confronted Billy. He had to know if he was spot on, Billy wouldn’t risk being found out. Poor Gideon. Poor Quinn. Poor Fitz. Poor Liv.. My heart aches for them all.

Is somebody is gonna die next week?

If Shonda Rhimes was my auntie, I would stalk her home all the time. I would follow her incessantly. I would harass her until she told me all I needed to know. “When will season 2 return Auntie Shonda”.. Lol..
I would bribe her with family secrets until she played me an advance copy of next weeks finale. This is serious business. I haven’t been excited about a TV show like this in years.

All jokes aside. It’s wonderful to see an african-american screenwriter bring provocative, edgy, political, and sheer genius to TV. It’s also refreshing to see an African-american woman portrayed this way. Kerry Washington delivers week after week. Olivia Pope is a woman’s woman. I love me some Scandal. And by the way, her fashion rocks! From Diane Von Furstenburg to Escada, to Valentino and yes.. Armani. Liv’a wardrobe is dying to meet me. I’d totally rock the business classy look everyday of the week. Let’s not even talk about girlfriends shoes.



I’m having a Scandal Party next week and your all invited!!!

(I will post the happenings of Dee part 2 later, this post couldn’t wait)

Peace and Blessings,
