Burger King‘s Mac n’ Cheetos are back with a twist. Following up on October’s spicy chicken nuggets, the popular side dish gets the “Flamin’ Hot” treatment.

Burger King announced the treat’s return. The company last offered the Mac n’ Cheetos earlier this year in a non-Flamin’ Hot variety. Fans even found them in the frozen food section, but this is Mac n’ Cheetos’ first spicy iteration.

Burger King has yet to put a date on the snack hitting stores but expect it to be sometime in the very near future.

Huge thanks to the Prince Estate. They have just made everybody holidays a lot better with this special Prince-themed “Hit’n'Run” pop-up shop

The T-shirts feature a range of graphic logos, images of Prince from his Controversy and Parade albums, a shot of the “Purple Rain” star holding a rose and more. The highlight piece comes in the form of a limited-edition hoodie, available in black, white and purple, that features embroidered “Prince 1999” text on the front. The white zip-up hoodie is also noteworthy and is embellished with a colorful graphic design on the back. The collection is rounded out with a dad hat, also available in purple, black and white, that is embossed with Prince’s famous “Love Symbol.”

You can check out all the things I bought and be sure to head over to the online store cause it's only here until December 3. 

Hit'n'Run.  


I never wear hats but this one had to add to the collection hanging off the whiteboard in my office. 


As of right now. I just have this one and the 1999 shirt. I'll probably be getting the  'Parade' t-shirt too. I already have a look in mind for this one already. 


Well, that didn't take long. I added the shirt. It's going home with me. I want to get creative on the shirt and add some holes and some purple words or something not too sure about it just yet. Actually, the look I have for the Prince with the roses shirt can be used for this one too.  

Make sure y'all check it out and don't miss out. Once it's gone you gonna be looking on eBay. High prices. 

Let me know what you end up getting.

 Having recently dropped its “Sub Rosa” collaboration with Bodega, Vans Vault has now released its latest capsule collection — “the stitch and turn pack.” Using two models, the Sk8-Hi and Old Skool, the main difference in this drop is the use of premium Italian leathers on the uppers, with the shoes coming in orange, maroon and two black versions.

Behind the leather upgrade, there’s also tonal stitching used on every shoe, as well as matching Vans branding on the side panel and heel tab. Each shoe is finished with the brand’s signature waffle sole unit.

You can buy the Vans Vault “stitch and turn pack” from select retailers such as Titolo.

You know, the more I think about this in this two-minute span, the more I feel like we should have seen this coming. Blue French horn. Something blue. What do you give the bribe to be? Not to mention that this is something that was heavy on the show. The horn and the yellow umbrella. That's not what this post is about. Y'all already know how I feel about that ending. Even with that, I love the show none the less. That's why I had to make this post. 

I ran across something amazing and I wanted to share with my fellow 'How I Met Your Mother' fans. Sidenote: Hopefully 'How I Met Your Father' gets the green light. The way it should be formatted, of course.  

The Blue French Horn. No matter where you sit on the fence about how the show ended, we can all agree that it is one of the best moments in the show. The stealing of it. The line.  

Robin: "You stole the Blue French Horn for me?"

 Ted: "I would have stolen you a whole orchestra."
Everything about it was romantic. Even the "Suiting up". More romantic than Lloyd holding a boombox outside of Diane’s window, or the Tramp saving the last meatball for Lady! 

Now, this isn't the one I have. I was able to find one with the horn and the umbrella. (Below)


Here's the link to the Blue Horn. I just got it in the mail yesterday and I have been wearing it since then. I haven't worn a white shirt for a while so now I find myself wearing some. So the necklace can stand out. 

Get this for yourself or for the HIMYM fan in your life. Trust me, they will love it. 

Here's the link again.

Don't have Amazon Prime? I got you a free trail right here.  Enjoy.

 You ever been out and seen somebody wearing the same thing as you. Everything from the shirt to the sneakers. Everything was the same but probably not the hair. Unless y'all was bald. What really are the chances of that happening. You know as many bald people they say it is, you really don't see too many. That's not what happens to me but that was just on my mind.
 

 I was wearing my peanuts at the same time I saw Erykah wearing the peanuts. Great minds think alike. She seems to have been more in the zone with the matching she did. She did some of that Badu style cause if you or I did this, we would look like we work at Mickey D's. Telling people the ice cream machine broken causes we don't wanna clean it. (At least that's what I think happens. Cause c'mon they all can't be broke.)

I wore red and yellow once. It was so ugly I stayed away forever. This is not the first and last you will see from Vans when it comes to Charlie Brown and the gang. 




I dare to not get too funky with the tee. I don't want anything to take away from the closing show stopper. Too much of the top takes away from the bottom and makes one big mess. Neither shines. Be more open to the plain. It goes a long way.  



Sticking with keeping it simple. I didn't toss on the new H&M acid wash joggers. I pass. Keeping with being strong for the bottom.  



Cut the light off, go home. The show has been won, folks. Nothing to see here. Actually, everything thing is to be seen. Take it all in.  Didn't get too fancy at the top for this bottom can flex on everybody. This is slowly becoming my favorite Vans mashups.  Reminds me of the things I used to do in high school. Drawing all over any and everything. 

Now go ahead and wear this one. Just make sure you not wearing it at the same time as me. Unless you want to get a picture together. Have the caption ready.

The trill is gone. The trill is gone away. Halt and Catch Fire has been CTRL, ALT and you know the rest. This show will be missed and years from now, people will find this masterpiece and be shocked it was canceled.  They should look in the mirror and see why (Cause you didn't watch).  That's not what this is even about. Just wanted to toss that out there. 

Let's just get to the shows I been watching lately.  


Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO)
Maybe it's cause they have been away and we missed they face; this season is one of the best. I don't know. Just something about this current season is killing me.  "Thank You for Your Service" falls into the top five episodes in this show history. This is prime Larry David shit right here. From the mail lady to the golf club and the Revolutionary War reenactment. Top fucking five.


 The Deuce (HBO)
I swear that is not a promotion for HBO. They just have my eye on these two. I tweeted about this show a couple times. Join in on some off-hours live tweeting. From the creators of The Wire. The Deuce tells the story of the legalization and ensuing rise of the porn industry in New York beginning in the 1970s. Themes explored include the violence of the drug epidemic and the resulting real estate booms and busts that coincided with the change. The show's title is derived from the nickname for 42nd Street between Seventh Avenue and Eighth Avenue. This is one of the drive digs that The Wire do. Taking something that the world looks down upon and giving it heart. 

Vice Principals (HBO)
Well, I didn't know that I watch this must HBO. Really didn't mean for this to turn HBO heavy. It is what it is and now it is (Sounds like I'm rapping). Anyways, we gonna get a part two. Everything, not HBO. Unlike me, I think that Danny McBride is doing things like this on purpose. He keeps being apart of shows that have short runs.  East Bound and Down. Over the top series that followed the life of a washed up, foul mouth baseball player. Kenny Powers. That series was four seasons. Cool. Now he comes back to HBO and he fucking with us at this point. Vince Principals was always meant to be just two seasons. Two. Seasons. That's the interesting take on this show. They went in from day one knowing when it would end so leading to the close wouldn't be a surprise that would lead holes in the story.  Vice Principals focuses on ill-tempered, dogmatic, and disliked vice principal of North Jackson High School Neal Gamby, and his ambitions of being promoted to the principal's chair when the principal is due to step down



GET OUT (HBO)
That space between the movie being in theaters and when it comes out on DVD or some streaming service seem to be getting shorter but this one seems long as hell. I feel like HBO been teasing this coming for the longest. It should have been Halloween. It came (finally) last week. I have been wanting to see this movie for the longest after seeing it a while ago. Movie theater here didn't even have it. I actually would have been shocked if they did. Anyways. I had to drive 30 minutes to see it. Regardless, I love the movie and I can watch it whenever I want to. 


 Hidden Figures (HBO)
This movie is Black Girl Magic. I really don't need to say no more.


Let me know what y'all have been watching. Leave a comment or hit me on Twitter/Instagram


P.S. I really won't be saying more about Hidden Figures. Black Girl Magic should be enough.

Not to mention, red accents are observed on the sneaker with the signature gum waffle outsole to boot.

A khaki and black Primeknit upper, which sits atop the signature white BOOST midsole, provides the “Dark Mocha” its fundamental build, while a familiar black cage and khaki heel panel complete the neutral-hued look.

Something about this is catching my eye. Fast. Since first seeing it. I think we all are waiting to see when this is being dropped and we have the answers. According to sneaker news IG account WTS1987, the coveted black and white collab kicks will see a drop happening in March of 2018.

Simple and making the point is always the way I love most of my sneakers. Let me know what you think in the comments.

The iconic Air Max 90 gets reinvented in all the right ways. The new version of this classic runner features a no-sew construction all throughout the upper that has been doused in Natural Grey. The star of the sneaker is seen on the side panels courtesy of the large “AIR MAX” branding in Crimson. The shoe is then finished with a white midsole and black rubber outsole. 

Help me out with this one. How do you feel about this? I'm on the line about it. I like it but not so much in love with this. I don't need to be in love to get the sneakers but hit or miss seems to be strong with this one. So I'm asking y'all. What ya'll think. 

I would have love for this to be more of the OG air max. With the details and  stitching and drop the big logo and color blocking over it. Now that would have been amazing. I don't know. Just wanted to share some of the thoughts that go into what I do before buying something. 

So let me know what you think.

Jeem hates talking about this but if I die first, she already knows what to do. No ties, Maybe a black suit. Fancy bowtie, please. Above everything else, no ties (yes, I said that twice). I hate them. Depending on the day of the week. She can feel free to pick from all the suits. Any color. Since everybody else gonna be in Heaven in black. I wanna be in whatever color that is not black. 

Anyways, this might can be a choice. Actually, nevermind (spoiler alert). This look doesn't have a bowtie.  Bury me in a fancy one. 

 Winter is coming and that means that it's the time of year when you (I) have to go to things I don't really wanna be at. Parties. Dinner parties, standing around parties and giving people gifts so they can laugh parties. I don't like to party but I like to look nice while not liking to do it. 

I picked up some Tommy Hilfiger pants the one day. They were around this color but much lighter. I won't be wearing the two together but I just might be falling in love with this color range.  

 It seems like the older I get, the more I start to love the things that my mom forced me to wear when I was younger. Crazy. I hated turtlenecks. I didn't wanna wear them. I wanted to wear my Falcons jerseys. I didn't have time for all this grown-up stuff. Anyways. I'm really feeling this with the light blue. I'm about to make this look so 80's. When you see me this weekend wearing this, blame it on the music. 


Keeping the pants to match the shirt. Giving darker than a little bit.



Not gonna lie. Still going back and fought about which to do. Gold or silver. Right now my mind is saying silver so it shall stay for now. I don't like the chain to hang.At all. This, not a music video so the hang is not needed. You see it. I see it. No need for the flex. Too ugly. So I keep it a little below the collarbone. Just a little bit. 


Ends this with some brown shoes. Looking like somebody daddy from the 80's that's picking they baby up from school and want all the teachers to see how good you look.

From Demogorgons to Eggos, it's time for a refresher on everything that happened in Hawkins, Indiana, on the hit Netflix show Stranger Things. Thankfully, Gaten Matarazzo has you covered on all the important tidbits from the first season of the spooky series.

On the last episode of The Awkward Minority. We gave away a 40% off code to H&M. They also sent along some joggers for me. Brown joggers. I already got all the other colors. Which means they need to make even more since that's about all I wear. Fuck jeans. Anyways. I also said on the podcast, that I don't know what I want to wear them. Well, that didn't take look. Pulled the look together too fast and here we are. 

Starting with the jean jacket. I know they will never be outta style but the massive have stopped wearing it right?  For now. They will be back in about five years. So I have two years of enjoyment. The picky dresser I am. 


At first, I wanted to pair this with a red shirt. Passed on it cause I seem to be having red as my go-to lately. Don't know why that is. Seeing that my favorite color is royal blue. So the love had to run back to my second love, blue. Black was my first. My mom was never having that. I wanted to paint my whole room black. I'll save that story for another day. 




Now for the brown pants. The white shirt is too safe and the light and darker blue seem to be what I want. I normally don't wear two jackets at one time. I live in Georgia. It's never that cold. I wanna look fancy so two jackets it is. 







Going back to the fact that I live in Georgia. I don't have the right thing to fit on my feet for this look, the way I want to. I wanted to match this off with some tan boots. I don't own any tan boots and I don't feel like getting any for this one look. So I match it up with some Air Max. The cleanest on it.

Shirt: Sanquon
Pants: H&M
