I know it's been MONTHS, if not almost a YEAR, since I've posted. Life has been absolutely insane and so much has happened but I'm slowly coming back to the blogging world =) Yes, I have changed my site name from sugarandretail to lifeofaPYT. New name, fresh start!
Stay tuned for new posts coming soon!

I was in Soho this past weekend, and visited the Bloomingdales located there.
Of course my girls and I hit up the MAC counter and I couldn't help but try on Lady Gaga's
new 'Viva Glam' amplified lipstick and lipglass.
I am completely and utterly in LOVE.
This might easily be my favorite nude lipstick. HANDS DOWN.

Two words: hate it.
I'm not sure if this messy-like bob is the look she was actually going for,
but if it is, I absolutely do not like it at all.
From the from, it looks like a bad wig from Real Housewife Kim's line.
Maybe I would like it if it was actually styled and didn't look like
she just woke up out of bed and stepped outside.

LMAO, someone definitely put a card like this on my windshield one time.
I KNOW I CAN'T PARK! *flips hair*
But was it that back to get one of these? haha
Lately, it looks like a lot of people have been hit with the bug ...
the bug of not being able to mind their goddamn business :( It's sad actually.
Life would be so much easier if people just stayed out of other people's lives.
The big thing that irks me is when people who aren't even IN your life
want to have a say in things you're doing or things they THINK you're doing.
Like, if you don't back the mess up with that nonsense -_____-
Now, what I'm about to say goes for anyone who isn't in my inner circle:
If you THINK I'm thinking about you -- I'm not.
If you THINK I'm talking about you -- I'm not.
If you THINK I'm giving a damn about your life -- I'm not.
If you THINK your name rolled off me tongue, 1000% of the time -- It didn't.
With that being said, there should be no question about
who, between me and you, is minding their business.
If I'm not putting it out there for public knowledge to know, then just mind your business.

“Some things don’t last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.” - Sarah Dessen ♥

Halle Berry recently covered and did an interview for Ebony Magazine's March 2011 issue.
In the issue, Halle talks about wanted African Americans to know she didn't forget about them,
her daughter's ethnicity, on interracial dating, and more!
Below are excerpts from the interview.
Look out for this issue on newsstands today!
On Her Daughter’s Ethnicity
"What I think is that that’s something she’s going to have to decide. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide-how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That’s how I identified myself. But I feel like she’s Black. I’m Black and I’m her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory. I identify as a black woman, but I’ve always had to embrace my mother and the white side of who I am, too. By choosing, I’ve often [wondered], “Well, would that make her feel like I’m invalidating her by choosing to identify more with the Black side of myself?"
On Interracial Dating
"Well, first thing I want to say is that I’m very connected to my community, and I want Black people to know that I haven’t abandoned them because I’ve had a child with a man outside of my race and I’m dating someone now outside my race who is Spanish and French. I have never been more clear about who I am as a Black woman[...] And who I really am is a Black woman who is struggling to make my race proud of me, who is struggling to move Black women forward in the profession I’ve chosen, and those relationships have actually helped me identify more clearly[....]The truth that it’s taken me a long time to learn how to love myself, and color isn’t really a part of what I look at when I’m deciding who I want to spend time with. I look for the soul, the person, the evolution, what he believes in, who [he is as a person] and how does it affect me in a positive way."
On if she feels like her beauty is a burden
"No. I mean, beauty is subjective. [And] there are worse things people could say about me. I do wish people would notice other things about me.I wish people would talk more about my talent than they do my beauty. I’ve worked hard as an actress and I always try to push the envelope, grow and do something different. And I wish people would maybe notice that more than that which I have no control over, which is how I look."

For my many viewers who are always up to day with celeb naked pictures lmao
Here goes another one!
I knew it was only a matter of time before Amber's pictures were leaked.
There's nothing else I can really say about her naked pictures. It is what it is.

Amber Rose was videotaped kissing Rosa Acosta outside of a club recently,
randomly in front of the paparazzi -_______________-
Why? She was just linked to Wiz right before this incident.
I swear I don't understand where this woman is going or what side of the fence she's on.
She still bad though lmao.

“Me and Nikki in our new crib, lol! Gettin busy on set of FLY!!! Its so hard to keep my hands off!” tweeted Rihanna. Nicki replied: “If we’re gonna liv 2gthr and hook up u gotta learn how 2 spell my name! Lmaooooooo. Gossip Gossip nigga just stop it!” to which Rihanna responded back with: “Bitch don’t u hear me askin what my OWN name is??? Lol! My bad, I’ll make it up to u wink.”
I'm trying to figure out when Rihanna and Nicki actually became close lol.
Lord knows what the hell Nicki is wearing.
BUT Rihanna's hair and makeup looks amazing!
The last time she did her red straight hair, it was a damn disaster.
I'm glad her hair stylist got it right this time.
Be on the lookout for the official music video for "Fly" to drop!

The first episode was jammed packed with so much DRAMA! My goodness!
First of all, Malik has lost his goddamn mind. Sleeping with TT's girl because he didn't give you a ride?
Sleeping with the boss's girl yet you're still not getting paid? SMH, I can't.
Now let's talk about Tasha and Terrance's love story -___________-
When Terrance came into the room, I screamed. WTF is he doing on this show?
Outside of 106&Park, I can't take him seriously as an actor.
Let's hit Kelly and Jason's situation -______________-
First of all, Kelly has annoyed me from her first appearance on the premiere.
We get it: You're divorced. Sit down somewhere.
Now all the sudden she's not afraid of Tasha? AND keeps wanting to fight her?
ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I can't.
I still don't understand what's Jason's role in this season.
He seems like a completely unnecessary character this season.
Who was that corny black girl who came in with him when he walked in on Kelly filming?
Shorty has sunglasses on indoors and thought she was fly.
Now for Derwin, Melanie, and Janae.
First of all, Derwin was looking entirely too fine throughout the episode. Goddamn.
He did an amazing crying job when he cried on Melanie's shoulder. Hell, it almost made ME cry.
I didn't think Melanie was wrong for swabbing that baby's mouth.
I did want to smack the hell out of her friend who ran the Paternity test wrong though.
Now we're all types of up in the air about whether or not the baby is Derwin's because
when he asked Janae if it was, she had a dumb look on her face as if it really wasn't.
But the Paternity test said it WAS Derwin's? That part was too confusing.
I can't wait for the next episode!
This season of 'The Game' is going to be amazing!

My Aromaleigh Makeup haul finally came in after so long!
They were sadly going out of business :( but did have a great deal on their eyeshadows.
I believe I ordered 10 of them for $25, which to me, isn't bad at all.

These booties are to die for!
They're designed by Colin Stuart for Victoria's Secret, so you can find these online.
This shoe features chiffon as well as flower detail along the front.
You can also tie up the back portion of the heel.
There is a 6 inch heel, so if you're not about extremely high heels, this might not be for you lol
The 1 1/2 inch platform kind of offsets the high heel height, but just be careful.
This might actually be a future purchase for me! I love the nude colored bootie in the front!

It's official: Lil B is a goddamn weirdo.
In this interview with MTV, the correspondant tries to get to the bottom of Lil B's "Based God"
movement and music. Being that he's the one who made up the genre and is the only one doing it,
he's the only person who would know. By the end of this interview, we still don't know what
his music is really about, he reveals he wears the same tee and dirty shoes everyday, and
his jacking-off process -________________-
Who even listens to this man's music?
Being that I don't even understand it, I don't listen to it.
Your thoughts on this interview?

What will 2011 bring? I truly wish I knew but I don't.
I do feel there's so many great things ahead for me this year.
2010 was mostly hell, not even going to lie. I've changed so much.
I like where I am and I love where I'm going.
I have so many projects, some BIGGG and some small, lined up for 2011.
A lot of big changes will be made and I'm honestly excited about it all.
No one knows what there are yet, but will find out in due time ;)
As usual, a lot of people have vowed that 2011 = a new them.
But how many will actually stick to that is the real question.
As cliche as it sounds, I really do feel 2011 is my year. I've never really felt like
a certain year was my year but I actually feel 2011 is itttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt.
I've dropped the baggage from 2010 and left it in 2010.
This won't be the year for drama.
In 2010, I tolerated entirely too much bullshit and fuckery.
This year? That won't be me. Too much negative came out of that.
Anyway, that's the end of my 2011 rant.
Stay tuned and keep checking Sugar & Retail for my journey through this new year :)

I still wanted to say Happy New Years to all my followers and readers!
My New Years Eve and day was pretty lovely!
I hope you all brought the new year in great and were surrounded by your loved ones.
I worked the actual day of New Years and I actually didn't mind too much.
What a better way to bring in the new year than to make money? ;)
