Three days later and I'm still floating from Beyonce's Philly "Formation World Tour". I'm literally beaming. After the release of "Formation" on Tidal and her powerful Superbowl performance we all knew the Queen was up to something. Then her promo for her tour comes across the TV screen. If you're anything like me you were up early on February 10th to get tickets for the show ( I got mine in the pre-sale) . Where were you when "Lemonade" dropped on HBO and Tidal on April 23, 2o16? Beyonce is iconic. She is doing what she loves and what she dreamed of as a little girl and it's just magical to see. "Lemonade" is a musical production that will always be remembered. The emotional stages that Beyonce and her large team ( which she credited) brought to life on her album and visuals is strong, creative, sexy, relative, loving, sincere, informative, edgy, steamy , and hard.
Finally June 5, 2016 arrives my mom and cousins arrive at Lincoln Financial Field. The skies are gray, rain in falling ( lots of rain) , but the smiles laughs , prayers, and excitement still fills everyone's face. I saw "IVY PARK" apparel, fans in Formation merch, and fans in their favorite Beyonce styles. After the approval for us to go to our seats was given we entered. My Mom and I sat in Section 222 Row 1. The seats were great by the way ( I'm so glad I could surprise her with tickets she's my best friend, love you mom) . The sun was coming out, our clothes were drying and we were smiling and laughing and thankful that God let the rain stop. The LFF started to fill with more of the beyhive. Music fro Sevyn Streeter, Chloe & Haley, and Yonce's "IVY PARK" ad played as we waited for the concert to start.
DJ Khaled's booth started to light up and then Mr. Major Key himself hit the stage and brought out Yo Gotti, The Young Gunz , Rick Ross, and Meek Mill . The day was already off to a hot start. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know how hype I was (laughs). So the audience is already excited and awaiting Beyonce to slay. After DJ Khaled's set a couple minutes passed and then the lights dropped and the roar of the audience and the energy just spread through thousands. Beyonce's intro popped up on her giant screens and it was officially time to get in Formation.
I will post clips from my Instagram of me turned up below. I'm yelling "I see her". The Lincoln Financial Field officially lit up and everyone was ready to party on a Sunday night with Beyonce, My mom, my row, and I are screaming, singing, dancing, and having a great time. Just watching the happiness from everyone around as we all watched our favorite do exactly what she loves. It's truly the definition of art and passion. I'm watching her perform "Crazy In Love, "Don't Hurt Yourself, "Me, Myself & I" , "All Night", "Hold Up", "Freedom", and "Naughty Girl", just to name a few and going "Oh my goodness we're really at her concert. Like we're really seeing her , like ahhhhhhh". This was my second time seeing Beyonce live in concert. I might have been 13 when I saw her the first time . This time at 24 I really got to party it up and slay . Beyonce is just beautiful, gracious, funny, and just amazing to see perform. The fact that her set was just mind blowing. She made sure that her fans no matter where they were sitting in the arena could see her and not miss any of the show. Hearing Beyonce say "The best relationship you can have is the one you have with yourself", hearing her say " I'm a very country girl from Houston Texas, I am you and you are me If I can be up here I promise you can do anything, all you have to do is dream there's gone be blood, sweat, tears, haters, but you gotta fight and you will be here I promise you " . She's just so gracious, inspiring, and it was just an amazing night. Thank you Beyonce for never giving up and for grinding and really being a star! Thank you to everyone for being apart of her team and making the Formation World Tour incredible. I have to go back September 29th. Beyonce is truly one of the greats and she slayssssssss. Thank you TIDAL.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : FOUNDERS OF KARMALOOP AND UPSCALEHYPE PARTNER WITH SILICON VALLEY VETERANS TO LAUNCH THE NEXT - GENERATION OF MEN'S GENERATION OF MEN'S FASHION AND STYLE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE IN CURATEURS.COM ( THE MOGUL GIRL)
Curateurs.com to become the leading fashion discovery
and lifestyle website for men where influencers & celebrities reveal their style.
(Los Angeles, CA – June 2, 2016) – Today fashion and style entrepreneurs, Greg Selkoe, Allen and Kyle Onyia, partner with Silicon Valley veterans, Dr. Paul Judge and Cedric J. Rogers to announce the launch of their joint venture, Curatuers.com. Curateurs is a revolutionary new website for men’s fashion which aims to be the go-to place to purchase exclusive items curated by the world’s most sought after influencers and celebrities.
By showcasing fashion from your favorite style influencers and today’s hottest celebrities, Curateurs combines the power of celebrity influence with technology, but in an authentic way not yet seen before. How? Not only will top celebrities showcase some of their favorite limited edition items and brands, but they will allow users to buy items straight out of their personal closets and private collections creating a one of-a-kind entertaining shopping experience that directly reflects their personal lifestyle. And because of this unique opportunity, most products are available at Curateurs.com and nowhere else.
“We want to provide our customers with hard to find expertly curated stuff ,” says co-founder, Greg Selkoe. “There has been a lack of innovation in the fashion shopping experience, especially for men,” adds Dr. Paul Judge, Chairman, Curateurs. “Paul and I began reaching out to our contacts in the influencer and celebrity community. The resounding response was, ‘yes we want to share our lifestyle’ and ‘yes we have what amounts to billions in goods to sell or products we love.’ We knew we were onto something big!” continues Greg.
How it works: The Curateurs’ team scours the globe to find the best cultural influencers. The focus is on style and substance not just fame. The invited “Curateur” is interviewed and talks passionately about the products they have picked. Then the website showcases photos and videos of Curateur style looks and provides a community platform where users can discuss said looks, save favorites to style boards, and/or buy them, creating a blend of content, community, and commerce.
Dr. Judge comments, “Everyone wants to be cool particularly our demographic. The great thing about Curateurs is that it has everything from the expensive Sotheby’s like pieces such as Ryan Leslie’s Grand Piano to street wear like Jeff Staple’s Staple Pigeon brand.” Greg adds, “the thread that ties all the products together is that they are all authentically part of the influencers lifestyle.”
The founders of Curateurs have had significant successas in both fashion and technology. Greg Selkoe was founder of Karmaloop, a leading men’s e-commerce company that grew to $100 million in annual sales. Allen and Kyle Onyia are founders of UpscaleHype, a high-end lifestyle online magazine that focuses on what celebrities wear. Cedric J. Rogers is a 10-year Apple veteran and Dr. Paul Judge, has been co-founder and executive at several successful technology companies including CipherTrust, Purewire, Barracuda, Pindrop and Luma. The newest team member Steve Birkhold, a 30-year veteran of the fashion industry having served as the CEO of Bebe and Lacoste, along with a 10-year tenure at VF recently came on board to add more fire power to an already formidable team.
The list of celebs already on board is quite impressive and grows daily. The first 3 Curateurs for launch are: designer Jeff Staple, one of Hip-Hop’s biggest rising stars A$AP Ferg, and Grammy Award Winner, Ryan Leslie. Future Curateurs include: The Chainsmokers, Jerry Lorenzo from Fear of God, Raekwon, Nipsey Hussle and GEazy, to name a just a few.
Curateurs, which targets the highly lucrative young male, 18-34, fashion forward demographic (according to Ad-Age this group spends over $200 billion dollars annually on consumer products), boasts over 200,000 users, 80 celebrities committed, and some of the world’s top fashion brands since its beta launch.
