FOW

Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the Fit Of the Week. I like this look, again, because I so comfortable. I fell in love with this shirt the moment I tried it on, and I like to pair it with things you wouldn’t normally see. That’s exactly what I did here. I am really into colored jeans that are flattering of course. Since, I am able to wear them to work, I definitely stray away from colors that are too bright and look child-like. I love these boots! I actually have them in black as well. Cognac or camel, whatever you want to call it, can be paired with a lot of colors, and different styles.

FOW

There are some days that I just don’t feel like getting all fancy, so I don’t. However, I don’t dress down, I just accessorize things that I feel more comfortable rather than flashy in. This is what I did here. A jean jacket can spruce up an otherwise dull outfit. Since I’m not wearing a flashy outfit, I wanted my accessories to be in the spotlight. I wore a multi-green statement necklace, an olive-green ring, gold-colored earrings, and I rocked sandals that are the same color as a set of beads in my necklace. There will be days that you don’t feel like doing too much as far as your wardrobe. On those days, try to spruce up your outfit with loud speaking jewelry. It can make all the difference.

Holy Water Ice Cream

The creator of the highly controversial breast milk ice cream is at it again. Matt O’Connor, the IceCreamists owner, has created a concoction that includes holy water, absinthe and sugar. He calls this the Vice Lolly.

The holy water used in this uniquely flavored ice cream was purchased from Lourdes, France. Lourdes is a Holy city declared by the Catholic Church after a 14-year-old girl claimed to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary. The ingredient absinthe can speak for itself; literally for some folks who consume it. The absinthe gives the gun-shaped ice cream its green color.

The Vice Lolly is being sold for £18.58 ( 28.47 US Dollars) and is only available at the Icecreamist shop in London.

While the creator said he wanted to make a strong statement about religion because he grew up in a Catholic church, I’d really like to know his exact reasoning for choosing the shape of a gun. I think making the ice cream in the shape of a nun or priest would have a strong statement about religion just as equally. I’m also wondering if by consuming this holy water ice cream, will the blessings process be altered in any fashion? IJS.

Check out this video for more information on the Vice Lolly.
