ASK JINNA: PAPERLESS POST SAVED MY SUMMER GAME NIGHT (& FUTURE LIFE EVENTS)!

Hey Everyone! I am so excited because I have partnered with Paperless Post to review and customize some pretty cool stationary and invites for some events I have planned in the next few weeks and months.

The summer is almost over so it’s time to invite my best girl friends and their kids over for a game night with me and my mini me, Sierra Giselle. Paperless Post is a saint and it literally saved me so much time and energy. I had so much fun customizing my invite and envelope (which I think is so dope). I wanted to design something that my friends would want to keep forever for memory sake – the game night is going to be LIT so why not have a FIRE invite to go with it. The site also allows you to add your guest’s emails or addresses to the site so that the names and addresses can be printed right on the envelope – no need to hand write anything. Check out the invitation I made with my daughter:

 

I’ve watched shows like Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the Real Housewives of Potomac that have inspired me to pay attention details and that even invitations should be well thought out and pretty/cool enough that the invitee wants to keep the card for a lifetime. I’ve seen these women pay hundreds of dollars for a baby shower or Girls Night In invitation that they also had to mail out themselves (rather their assistants) – no one has time to be licking stamps and standing online at the post office. Paperless Post does it all for you!

Paperless Post offers great birthday party invitations, graduation party invitations, and invitations for special announcements. Below are a couple of my favorites on the site:

 

My daughter is obsessed with Unicorns so I thought the invite above was adorable

My 5-year-old is into manicures and playing with makeup so this gives me an idea for her birthday invite (coming up in November)

This invite is perfect for a summer BBQ

I was drawn to invite because I am from New York City and it’s so New York!

BEAUTY NEWS: LADY GAGA ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL BEAUTY LINE

View this post on Instagram

When I was young, I never felt beautiful. And as I struggled to find a sense of both inner and outer beauty, I discovered the power of makeup. I remember watching my mother put her makeup on every morning, basking in the glow of her power to put on her bravest face as the hard working woman she was. I then began to experiment with makeup as a way to make my dreams of being as strong as my mother become true. It was then that I invented Lady Gaga. I found the superhero within me by looking in the mirror and seeing who I wanted to be. Sometimes beauty doesn't come naturally from within. But I'm so grateful that makeup inspired a bravery in me I didn't know I had. I've come to accept that I discovered my beauty by having the ability to invent myself and transform. They said I was just weird, but really, I was just Born This Way. Love, Lady Gaga

Is there such a thing as too much makeup? Me personally, I say NO! I am here for it all….

Makeup lovers, the rumors are TRUE! A couple of months ago Lady Gaga teased that she would be stepping into the beauty world soon with her own beauty line. She finally made the official announcement on her Instagram account and the beauty line will launch under the title Haus Laboratorie, and the first range of products will be released through Amazon.

Since announcing the title of her beauty line, the hausbeauty.com website and Instagram account (@hauslabs), along with a Youtube account featuring a video titled Our Haus went live for us to view and lust over until the products are released.

Hause Laboratorie will launch exclusively on Amazon in the fall but pre-orders are available at the brand’s site starting July 15th. Are you guys excited?

WCW: CHLOE + HALLE BAILEY

This week’s WCWs are singers and sisters Chloe and Halle. They looked stunning at The Lion King premiere in LA last night.

Halle is slated to be the next Little Mermaid and I am so excited for my daughter to see a little a girl that looks like her as a Disney princess that she adores (my daughter is obsessed with Ariel and singing the songs from the movie). Chloe and Halle have amazing voices, hello Queen Bey discovered them…so I cannot wait to hear the songs and see the live-action production. #blackgirmagic at its finest!

BEYONCE + BLUE IVY SHOW UP & SHOW-OUT DRIPPING IN DIAMONDS AT THE LION KING PREMIERE

One of my favorite childhood movies premiered last night in LA and The Queen came to slayyyyy. Queen Bey showed up and showed-out with daughter Blue Ivy dripping in diamonds! Beyonce wore an Alexander McQueen crystal chandelier-embroidered tuxedo dress, crystal jewels, and an embroidered box clutch. Blue Ivy matched her gorgeous mom in a tuxedo dress.

Beyonce voices Nala in The Lion King which premieres on July 19th.
