SPARKLE MOMENTS: Tiny & TI’s Elaborate Baby Shower is a ‘Royal Event’

WATCH: http://bcove.me/3lwv10w0

It’s happening right here in Atlanta! T.I. & Tiny’s Glamorous Baby Shower is a ‘Royal Event’
and we betcha the baby’s name will be “Prince or Princess”. The name is still a Wild Card,
or at least they haven’t revealed it to us. 

T.I. and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris celebrated their upcoming bundle of joy with a lavish baby shower on Sunday, and The Sparkle Page has an exclusive look at the revelry compliments of ET.

The celebratory bash was held at The Royal Harris Castle in Atlanta, Georgia, where T.I., Tiny and their children made a grand entrance into the baby shower to excited fanfare.

Before the event, Tiny spoke exclusively about the party, where she said she wanted the baby shower’s theme to be “a royal event,” and it looks like the 40-year-old singer-songwriter certainly got her wish.

Among the guest were Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta stars Rasheeda and Kirk Frost, Married to Medicine’s Dr. Jackie Walters and Sarah-Elizabeth Reed, wife of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.

T.I. flew into Atlanta for the big event, coming from Las Vegas where he had
performed live at Drai’s Nightclub at The Cromwell Hotel.

According to Tiny, who is due in April, her latest pregnancy “has been great,” but this will be the couple’s last kid. The new baby will be Tiny and T.I.’s third child together after welcoming their first son, Clifford “King” Joseph Harris III, in August 2004 and their second son, Major Philant Harris, in May 2008. T.I. has two older sons, Messiah Ya’Majesty Harris and Domani Uriah Harris, and a daughter, Deyjah Imani Harris, from previous relationships. Tiny has an older daughter, Zonnique Jailee Pullins, from a previous relationship as well.

According to the expectant mom, their other kids “are excited” about the upcoming addition.

“They are trying to pitch in at home,” Tiny beamed. “King has already bought the baby gifts. He found some socks the other day for the baby.”

She added that, this time around, her 35-year-old husband is “much more involved” with her pregnancy than ever before.

“I think it’s because it’s a girl,” Tiny explained. “His protective nature is already coming out.”

The Xscape singer also opened up about her pregnancy style, which can be difficult for some celeb moms. But for Tiny, “Dressing hasn’t been tough because I dress comfortably and I don’t wear a lot of heels. I’ve had to get some different pants to accommodate my stomach, but that’s about it.”

While she admits that she looks to Kim Kardashian when it comes to a star who’s a true mommy style icon, she said, “I dress to the beat of my own drum and stay comfortable.”

The cute couple first announced they were expecting a new baby in December with an adorable announcement in Instagram. Check out the video below to see more.

5 Indications That She’s A Keeper

THE BEST VIEW

Many guys often celebrate the idea of being sought after by several ladies at a time. They shun love and dating in order to keep up with appearances and hold on to their distance from a good woman that’s staring them right in the face.

You gentleman may think that it’s great having more than one, but this is a clear sign of holding onto your youth. Do we want to dig further? Maybe on the next topic we will discuss why some men still act like boys and how it’s affecting our males, the fathers of our identity, our protectors, our leaders of the free world.

Okay, I digress…Now, where were we? Ah yes, here are ways that real men can consider whether or not she’s a keeper in the following:

1 – This is obvious, but it holds true that a good woman ♥ is EXCLUSIVE. She will rarely entertain outsiders if she is truly into you.

2 – Good women ♥ SHARE IN YOUR DREAMS. She’s a keeper when she invests time into your dreams all the while, continuing to build her own. Now, of course this doesn’t apply to bums with low ambition.

3 – Good women ♥ season with salt. ENCOURAGES AND EMPOWERS YOU. She always tells you the truth and won’t feed your ego, sometimes to a fault with more lies. It may not be something you want to hear but it may be something you need to hear. She’s trustworthy.

4 – Good women ♥ are INTO YOU AND NOT WHAT YOU HAVE OR CAN DO FOR THEM. She is vested in you for the long term in solidarity and truth; her affections are not based on wavering admiration that is here today and gone away tomorrow.

5 – Good women ♥ will take the time to LEARN YOU. Know what your likes and dislikes are. They are willing to please you. It is a sure thing that she’s a keeper when she reserves her body for you and nothing compares to sex combined with feelings and emotions with someone.

Everything That Glitters

We bet you’re probably wondering why anyone would name a BLOG The Sparkle Page … With a name like that, we’d be limiting all sorts of people, huh? No. Think again! Anyone who has not followed our page for a significant amount of time would more than likely assume it’s because of an affinity to cute shiny objects, or because everything that glitters IS GOLD in our world; or perhaps, our beauty and worth aren’t found at the MAC counter, or the hair salon or in the latest pair of Christian Louboutins. Hush hush, yes; we said it and YES, we know. This is a Vanity Blog!

Guys and Dolls, we are artists. Creative strategist and very sensitive about the craft. [Sound familiar?] Maybe, (insert emphasis) …our shine comes from somewhere deeper inside, pure, authentic and real. It doesn’t need any gloss or polish or bling to make it SPARKLE!

Moving right along, we decided to go ahead and give blogging another try. After all, what has anyone really go to lose? Who knows, this could just be the answer that we need. – Hey, wipe that smirk off of your face! Often times, you may think to yourself what do I really have to write about or say… It’s even possible that you question whether or not any one would even care to hear what it is you would have to say…or read, for that matter! Taking a page out of the “D-e-f-e-n-s-i-v-e Playbook”, we are well aware that we really don’t know anything; but, people want to pay to know whatever it is we know. Life is good.

Do you all hear that? (Incoming) Sounds like a huge storm cloud of D-o-u-b-t. We’re just going to step aside before getting hit. Whatever the case may be, we’d never have known if we didn’t just start somewhere. Thus, The Sparkle Page is formed. Someone should probably put it out there, there’s no particular strategy. Our page consists of what is called Lifestyle slash Vanity Blogging (Not in the vanilla kind of way…Okay, never mind) By definition, lifestyle is the way in which one chooses to live their life. Vanity is pride in one’s appearance, qualities, abilities, achievements, etc.; character or quality of being vain. Therefore, in public opinion, we’re just going to ”Forest Gump” the entire thing – keep going until we run out of words to say.

Further explanation needed you say?
How about you just stay tuned with highlights and updates of The Sparkle Page? We are looking forward to your feedback and continued support as we press forward to greatness.

Technically Single

1378839_10153795214682971_3615723849906673262_n

Seriously? Okay, what would’ve been great just now is if the dot on the “eye” (i) of the title-words “technically single” above us had a cute little heart over it. But, that’s just how differently the mind can work when it comes to details, besides the creative graphics would not allow such sophistication on such a basic header. So, we’re moving on…

Ultimately, talking about how one is technically single, simply implies that life doesn’t end after divorce…right? The technicality is this; once someone has been married and then divorced, they technically possess more experience than the average single female out here trying to entice a man with her womanly-wilds on “FLEEK”-mode.  Nevermind, just forget it; it seems like instead of understanding, at the very best, you’re all just going to Laugh at My Pain (in my best Kevin Hart voice). Here’s the thing, looking this great and being at the 40 threshold is both a blessing and a curse.  Granted, youthful by design; (Suddenly, you hear the voice of mother teasing in the background saying…”Yes, I know, you’re FOREVER 21”) companionship doesn’t get any easier to find the older you become and especially when you’ve given your heart away once before. Mother never was a liar!

Listen up! You’d have to admit, any woman having been a daughter, mother, wife, student, sister, best friend, girlfriend, an ex… has had a wealth of lessons, a lifetime of hurt and happiness that the ordinary “single woman” simply has not yet sampled. You may as well say it’s almost like being overqualified to be “single”. So, exactly what does happen when one is overqualified for the single life? Can you say, D-E-N-I-E-D? Try being approached by eligible singles looking for an overnight scenario, quick romp, or to possibly string you along and pose as a lifetime partner, when in actuality they are just not interested in the long haul commitment. Nor mature enough to be dedicated to the intricate process of truly getting to know someone. Oh please, surely the male readers are sitting back boasting about now. Can’t you just imagine the little giggles going on inside of their brains saying “Maybe, QUITAR (1)that’s because you’ve never dated ME” ?Newsflash, we’re especially referring to you!

Now, we’re not getting off on any rants or gender- bashing or anything. However, there is still firm belief  there are some Great, GREAT men out there.
