"For Colored Girls" Cover of Essence

Okay I love this!!! Essence has a special edition with their December issue with two covers. One with the women of the movie, all wearing their "color" and the other with the men minus Isaiah Mustafa. I mean I'm still a little salty that the Old Spice Guy wasn't in the movie, but it's still hot! LOL

If you didn't check out the movie, go see it...TODAY! :)

Spain Prostitutes Ordered to Wear Reflective Yellow Vests for Safety

Uhhh heard that right!! What is the world coming to??

Apparently a law was passed in 2004, that requires pedestrians on major highways to wear the high-visibility vests. And this includes the girls for pay unless they want to pay fines of 40 euros (which is $56). Police say they are targeting the solicitors not because of their occupation but because of the potential hazards they may cause drivers. Riiight!!

Anyway, I know this is really messing up their outfits! GOODNESS! LOL

What y'all think?

Kerry Washington on the Cover of Essence

I feel like people sometimes sleep on Kerry Washington! She is HIGH FASHION and very CHIC!! Love her and can't wait to see her in "For Colored Girls". It's been too long.

She covers the November issue of Essence discussion "Race in America". Thank goodness it's not BLACK in America.

She states
"...I don't want to ignore my Blackness. I just want to get to the point where my racial identity is simply a part of what makes me unique..."
Essence expresses
"The goal of this month's issue is to create a national dialogue on race that will inform, inspire and empower African-American women."

What do you all think?

Consistency is KEY

WHERE IS THE MOTIVATION TO WORK OUT?????????? *sigh* I mean really?? Am I going to have to be 250 lbs before I realize that I need to be getting my butt on the treadmill??? I will go from one extreme to the next. ON FIRE one week and ain't lifting a finger the next.


I saw this quote and it really spoke to me
People are so focused on wanting things now that they aren't willing to spend the time consistently doing small things over time. This attitude results in loads of stress and lost opportunities.
Soooooooo with that...I need to get on my game. Operation NWA...12 (Not wearing a size 12) SHOULD be in full effect but isn't! I NEED some motivation!!!

Here are some small goals that I saw on

First, pick small goals that can be somewhat easily integrated into your normal daily schedule. Examples include:
  • 10 minute workout in the morning
  • Taking fruits and vegetables to work (packs of raisins, an apple, or a bag of carrots)
  • Giving yourself small breaks throughout the day to relax or meditate
  • Working on a new skill for a certain amount of time each week
Soooo who's with me?????

Hillary WHY???

I know we need to be talking about more important things but this is just wrong?? WHYYYYYYYY Hillary must you wear this crazy looking clip? We've all had those bad hair days, I'm sure. But wouldn't you think if you were the Secretary of State they would END? You have enough power AND money to get your hair done. Or what about a simple bun? Just pull it all back!!! *Sigh* And at the United Nations??? LAWD!!!! Don't know why but needed to say...



What y'all think??? HA

That is all! Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeace! :)

Do You Know Ebonics??? We Are Looking For YOU...

What is EBONICS??? Ebonics was originally supposed to be the language of SLANG in the African American Community. Now we KNOW it has some what TAKEN OVER. RIGHT?? Let's not act dumb about that. But is this really going too far???

Wanted by the Drug Enforcement Administration: Ebonics translators.

YES that's right...the DEA is looking for nine people to translate some of the conversations they are hearing on the tapes of some wiretaps. Special Agent Michael Sanders said this...

"DEA's position is, it's a language form we have a need for. "I think it's a language form that DEA recognizes a need to have someone versed in to conduct investigations. And Ebonics is no longer spoken only by African-Americans. It crosses over geographic, racial and ethnic backgrounds. "
The positions are available in Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans and even the Caribbean.

Sidenote: If they were really smart, they would just get Pookey off the street and give him a $100 for translating the conversation. I'm just saying. But hey, if you know someone looking for a gig, pass this along! :)

What do you all think?

Marc Jacobs Adds Plus Sizes to Line

So what is PLUS size you ask? Well this is the fashion industry. So we are JUST talking a 18. Marc Jacobs currently goes up to a 16 and now will go to a WHOPPING 18! LOL!! Now this WAS announced on Twitter, so who knows if it is for real.

In the tweet, Marc Jacobs‘ CEO Robert Duffy says
“I’m a big guy 6′4” 210 lbs. It’s not easy for me to find clothes. We gotta do larger sizes. As soon as I get back to NY. I’m on it!”
Saks Fifth Avenue will also be adding plus sizes to designer lines by Chanel and Alexander McQueen.

Maybe Toccara can be the spokes person...if she stops losing weight! We know J-Hud can't do it!

What do you think!? Should more designers have larger sizes available?

Favorite Things

*singing* These are a few of my favorite things

So my NUMBER ONE favorite thing to do is NAP!! I still crack up at one of my friend's first memory of us hanging. What did we do?? Go to my house and take a NAP!!!!!!! It was so awesome! That connection bounded us together forever! LOL!!!! A nice SUNNY, COLD, or RAINY (as you can see any kind of weather) DAY on the couch doing NOTHING but napping and watching movies!! OOH...I love it! Look for my CD coming in the fall...NAPPING ON A SUNDAY!! :o)

Speaking of...I would say the next thing would be just laying on the couch. I swear my couch has some kind of hypnotic layer that MAKES you stay there. Some nights I want to stay there instead of getting in my bed! It's the ABSOLUTE best place in the house! Oh and please don't come over and try to sit in my spot! I'm sure to have an attitude or at least pout about it!

Next on the list is GRAPE SODA!! Man...I don't know where it came from but I love me some GRAPE soda!!! For my 25th birthday, my friends threw a PRE-birthday party called a GRAPE SODA SOCIAL. We watched a slide show, did make up, and drank Grape soda to our hearts content! It was AWESOME!! We went to St. Marteen in 2005 they had FANTA grape soda as an option in one of the local restaurants! And it's just perfect that all my friends LOVE Grape Soda too!!!?!?!?

I love Musicals. My favorites are THE WIZ (Ease on down, ease on down the road) Okay why did I think they were saying "Don't you carry nothing that might FEEDALOAD" What is a FEEDALOAD?? I don't know! LOL!!! THE LABYRINTH (You remind me of the babe. What babe?? The babe with the power. What power?? The power of Voodoo. Who do?? You do. Remind me of the babe.), & SISTER ACT ONE & TWO!!

I'm a little biased! I'll admit that I don't like the song breakdowns on the (for lack of a better phrase) "chitterling circuit" plays!!! I mean I love those plays but I could sure fast forward through some of those songs!!! They are so LONG and drawn out. All they are really doing is ad-libbing and you have NO IDEA what they are talking about!

And why do I love Musicals?? Because I LOVE singing!!! I mean, it may not sound great but I'm doing it anyway! Guaranteed to catch me singing SOMETHING at least three times a day! I've picked up this new fascination with KARAOKE!!! Well I can't say it's new, but it's definitely on another level now!!! And what do you know??? My friends love singing and karaoke too!! Gotta choose your friends wisely! :o)

So what are some of your favorite things?

Jaden & Willow Smith Will Launch a New Clothing Line?

Jaden Smith's Karate Kid premiered a few months back and the whole Smith family has been traveling the world promoting it. We have noticed that the Smith children have a style all their own. Willow has gotten TONS of recognition for "out of the box" style. The girl never has on just some jeans and a shirt. LOL

Mariel Haenn, hollywood stylist, tells

“With Rihanna, pretty soon after she came on the scene, you started seeing designers from Forever 21 to Gucci coming out with styles mimicking her look…We hope the same thing happens here, but I think the ultimate goal is for Willow and Jaden to have their own line. Jada said upfront that she didn’t want us to dress them like standard kids, like with Sesame Street T-shirts. And the kids really like dressing as adults and hope that adults will want to dress like them. But Jada will put her foot down if there’s something she doesn’t like, though if the kids really love it, she’ll usually let it pass."
Some of their gear is OVER THE TOP. But I think that a line would be cute for them! What do you guys think?

REVIEW: "Lottery Ticket"

We saw the sneak preview of "Lottery Ticket" last night. It's starring Bow Wow, Ice Cube, Naturi Naughton, and Brandon T. Jackson. It was way better than I thought!! And it was even better to know that the stars took some time out to come to the theater to say hello to the people that were about to see their film! It's not just a laughs and giggles kind of movie. There is a little message lying underneath. Now granted I was expecting the little guy from "Don't Be A Menace..." to jump out and scream "MESSAGE", but still! :)

Here's the synopsis...

Kevin Carson, a young man living in the projects, wins $370 million in a nationwide lottery. When his opportunistic neighbors discover he has the winning ticket in his possession, Kevin must survive their greedy and sometimes even threatening actions over a three-day holiday weekend before he can claim his prize.

Check it out on August 20th!

Why Do Black Women Wrap Their Hair At Night?

You can probably refer to the picture of Naomi Campbell about a month ago and just be done with it. But...

As if you didn't already know, black women need to wrap their hair at night to maintain a healthy head of hair.'s not just about looks. It's about the health of the hair as well. If you go to bed all willy nilly and lay it down on the pillow you are begging for split ends. It's also unhealthy to apply heat to our hair on a daily basis. So wrapping the hair at night is a technique that will help to maintain a great look without using the curling iron.

If you paid Vicki $75 to get your hair done, you want it to last longer than 3 hours, right?? RIGHT!!! We already have the elements to fight...rain, humidity, that crazy man that brushed up against your head while you were in line at the grocery store. Let's NOT fight when we are at HOME!

But lately I've been hearing how men are really upset that their woman comes to bed at night with their head wrapped. I'm sure there have been some full blown discussions amongst couples about why a woman's hair is so important. OH...I know it's not just me! LOL!!! If they really love you then they need to love all that comes with being you! I guess we could try to at least make it a little cuter and not so grandma-ish. I know mine is down right ugly!! But it gets the job done like no other. So what it leaves the lines on the side of my head. I've tried to buy cuter ones and they just don't do it!

Do Men really mind?? They might not get it at that moment, but they sure do appreciate it at 8pm when y'all are headed to dinner and your hair is looking super fly! they really want this?

What do y'all wrap or NOT to wrap? That is the question. :o)

DeJA Vu or Predictability?

Do you ever feel like you are having DeJA Vu ALL THE TIME!?!?!??!

Now I LOVE my life. I love my job, I love my house, I love my family and friends. But sometimes I just feel like I'm doing the same thing everyday!

It just hit me as I was cleaning out my cup getting ready to pour my coffee. I clean the cup the SAME way every morning and dry it off the SAME. It's like that is so predictable of me. So I'm telling my co-worker that it felt like DeJA vu. But then I'm like maybe not...maybe it's because I do the same thing everyday! He says that he likes that! It's comforting knowing that some things won't change and are predictable.

So I got to thinking. It IS comforting to know that certain things will happen or certain people will be there. It feels good knowing that you have a home to go to. It feels good knowing that you have a job to come to. It's nice to know that such and such is going to call. Knowing that your grandmother is praying for you. All those things...I really do WANT to be there.

So what do you all think!?!?! you want it in your life??


ps-to all my homies that are always there for me...THANK YOU!!! ;o)

Just Venting

Stuff that gets on my very last nerves! Some are minimal but I just can't stand them! LOL!! They are in no particular order.

1. People (mainly professionals) that say PACIFIC instead of SPECIFIC.

2. When someone sneezes and I say "BLESS YOU" and they do NOT say "Thank You".

3. Volunteering a lie. WHY!?!?!?!? It's not necessary to lie, and especially when I didn't ask you about it!!

4. Western Union. This is so stupid! Who doesn't have a checking account?? I'm not PAYING to spend money.

5. This one will be hard to explain. When people try to clear their sinus cavity. I guess that's what they are doing. But they make this horribly disgusting sound of sniffing up snot! (sigh) LAWD!!!!!!!! I can't stand that! I hope y'all get what I'm saying! LOL!!!!!!!!

6. Oh but what about when people scratch their throat with their tongue. Can SOMEONE feel me on that!?!?!? OOH!

7. Not apologizing or admitting you are wrong. Someone gets an attitude with you because they THINK they are right about something! Then they find out they are wrong and they want to just say WHATEVER!

8. When people butt into a conversation and have NO IDEA what they are talking about.

9. Men having fifty-leven (YES I said it) kids and just as many baby mammas! And Vice versa!

10. People that are ALWAYS claiming broke!

This is an old post that I did in 2006! HA!! But trust that it still applies! *wink*

REVIEW: Playing Hard To Get by Grace Octavia

Visit to vote for this review or to purchase the book.

Playing Hard To Get
by Grace Octavia

Grace Octavia brings Tasha, Troy, and Tamia back in PLAYING HARD TO GET. These best friends have been through it all...together. Now in the sequel to TAKE HER MAN, they move on to another journey in their lives. Troy is now a First Lady. Her marriage to Kyle is anything but picture perfect. She allows some of the nosey mothers of the church to wedge their way into her relationship. Tasha is married to her NBA baller, Lionel. They have moved out of the city into the suburbs with their two daughters and Tasha feels like she is drowning. She takes a big leap to get back on the scene that could cost Tasha her family. Tamia is on the fast track to making partner in her firm. She is dating high-powered attorney, Charleston, with lots of perks. When she is given a case that she thinks is a sure loser, Tamia never expects to meet Malik and to actually be able to learn something from him that could possibly change the rest of her life. Their lives are turned upside down and the challenges bring the 3Ts closer together.

 Octavia's writing style is in a category all of its own. She tells the story in a "sistergirl" fashion. She gives footnotes to help you understand the BAP (Black American Princess) and her personalized lingo. Octavia also inserts hilarious guides after a few chapters such as "Top Ten Reasons Men Lie in Love," "The BAP Declaration of Independence," "25 Classy-Girl Rules of Class Action" and "Six Male Conversations to Avoid." I am not sure that I totally get the title, but I thoroughly loved the book. This book stands alone. You do not have to read TAKE HER MAN but I suggest you do. It was great as well.

This book was sent from the author for review purposes.

Inception...Go See It!!!

Have you seen the movie Inception? If you haven't...then you need to go see it! As I talked about it with other people, it is starting to give me the LOST vibe. LOVE IT! :o) I am still trying to understand all of what actually happened. LOL It is so intriguing to think about the subconscious mind. We enter into the character's dreams and then into the deepest parts of their minds. PUT YOUR BRAINS TO WORK. You can't miss a beat and you have to be open to explore!

I won't give away anything about the movie. Just give you a synopsis and then let YOU decide! HA!

Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight) writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) doesn't steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can't get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption. This time, Cobb won't be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Should he and his team of specialists succeed, they will have discovered a new frontier in the art of psychic espionage. They've planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they're up to, and precisely how to stop them.
You can pre-order the book that comes out in September by Christopher Nolan.

E-Readers. Would you get one?

E-readers! Do you have one? Would you purchase one?

You can download your books right onto the device and read from there. You can even download magazine subscriptions. I like the idea of having all your book stored in one place. Not have stacks of books around the house (oh so I'm the only one??). And taking this on vacation and not having to lug three and four books around.

There are just so many out there to choose from. has the Kindle. Barnes & Nobles has the Nook. Sony has the Sony reader. The iPad has the reader on it. And you can even use your smartphone (iPhone, Blackberry, etc) to download an application for a reader. SOOOO many options!

Call me old school, but I really love the feel of a BOOK. I know so many people are getting these e-readers and they are LIGHTWEIGHT convincing me that I should to. But I love the idea of being curled up on the couch or in bed with a good book. Flipping pages...not looking at a screen.

Where are we headed next?

I just thought this picture was hilarious! :)

So stay cool out there. Here are some ways to stay cool this summer...
  1. Drink plenty of water!
  2. Dress appropriately.
  3. Stay INDOORS. Find some indoor activities to partake in. Maybe the movies, the mall, whatever you do...don't go to the park. :)
  4. Think COOL thoughts! Pretend you are in the Arctic. SOMETHING! lol
There are also ways to cool down your house without air conditioning. Just in case someone steals your AC.

Women Own More Jeans Than They Wear


According a survey done on Consumer Reports/ShopSmart , the average woman owns seven pairs of jeans but only wears FOUR. Only one in four women own more than ten pair of jeans.
ShopSmart's survey also gathered that the average price a woman is willing to pay for her jeans is $34. Only one in 10 women are willing to spend more than $100 on a pair of jeans.

Women between the age of 18-34 are willing to spend a little more, with their average being $60 a pair. They also own more jeans, with 99% owning more than 10 pair.

Yeah that would be ME!!! I own about 17 or 18 pair and really I think I wear a solid 6 or 7 pair! :) That's because those are the ones I can FIT! LOL!!! And I wouldn't spend more than about $45 on a pair of jeans. Really less than that! HA!!

So what about you?? How many do you own? How much would you spend?

Lebron James’s $50 Million Mansion


That’s what Lebron should be saying right now!!

According to Life & Style Magazine, Lebron James is reportedly purchasing a $50 million dollar mansion in the Coral Gables section of Miami. This is the Heat coach, Pat Riley, former abode. It has been on the market for a while and was taken off of the market shortly after Lebron’s DECISION was made to head to Miami to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh with the Miami Heat.

It’s an 20,862 square feet, 8 bedroom/11 bathroom mansion home.

People are up in arms about it too. Like I said before…GET YO HANDS OUT HIS POCKETS!!!! The man just signed a contract for $110 MILLION. Did we forget???


Teen Maternity Line?

First let me say that I love Forever 21!

Forever 21 has launched a maternity line, Love 21, in five states: Arizona, Alaska, California, Utah, and Texas. Bloggers from the site The Glass are pointing out three of those five (Arizona, California, and Texas) are are among the top 15 states with the highest teen pregnancy rates.
Executive vice president, Larry Meyer, states
"Forever 21 did not create, design or distribute Love 21 Maternity to target, or appeal specifically to pregnant teens. Any relationship between teen pregnancy rates and the locations of our stores is unintentional. The line will provide sophisticated, on-trend styles for moms-to-be at affordable prices, continuing Forever 21's commitment to value, trend and freshness."

I don't see ANYTHING wrong with this. I mean I know plenty of people that shop there. I know that it may be geared towards teenagers. But I believe the maternity line is geared towards young adults. The girls on the website modeling the clothing aren't teenagers.

Honestly when I first saw it I was thinking OOOH this will be so cute for me when I get pregnant. :) My thoughts were NOT on teen pregnancies.

Anyway...YOU be the judge. What are your thoughts?

Christina Milian and The Dream Separated

While The Dream spent the better part of this year DENYING that there were any problems with his marraige to Christina Milian, it is now revealed that they have been having problems since 2009.

In a statement released to US Weekly, The Dream's rep said:

Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina
Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but
decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter
Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving

Could it be because of his personal assistant, Melissa?? They were all hugged up in the Carribbean this past weekend. *side eye*

I'm just saying...I bet Christina wishes she had stayed with Nick Cannon. HMMPH!!! Who's buying The Dream's next album?? LOL!!

Fonzworth Bentley ENGAGED

Fonzworth Bentley and his long time girlfriend, Fuane Chambers, have been engaged since December 2009. Ummm heard right! I mean I know they have been dating for awhile, but I was waiting for the announcement. Well...another kind of announcement!

Bentley spoke with US Weekly.

"We are so excited!" Bentley -- who first rose to fame when he was
photographed holding Diddy's umbrella -- told Us Wednesday.

The singer, author and reality star (From G's to Gents) proposed to
actress Faune Chambers (who co-starred with Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of
Benjamin Button) on December 2009 near their Atlanta hometown.

He got down on one knee with a 3-carat asscher-cut diamond from
NYC's Ozuro Fine Jewelry.

"I tricked her! She thought it would happen on Christmas but I did
it right before New Year's," Bentley tells Us. "She said yes and I was so
excited. Afterward, she kept wanting to call and tell her mother and I told her
not to - because then we walked into a restaurant where my parents and her
parents were waiting. We all had lunch and then I walked them all back to show
them where I proposed."

"The wedding is pretty soon!" adds Bentley, 36.

Chambers, 33, also plays the lead in the music video for new single
"Greener," off his EP Cool Outrageous Fingerprint (out this summer).

"It's really special to say my fiancee is in the video. I love
using that word. You don't get to do it too long, so it's really special!"
gushes Bentley.

CONGRATS to the couple!!! :)

Do you know what to eat for your age?

Surprise, surprise: The food you ate at 18 (hot dog and a Coke, please!) no longer gives you an 18-year-old's body. Dietitian Ashley Koff explains what to focus on for weight management in every decade.

In your 20s: Build good habits—and bone density—by opting for nutrient-rich whole foods instead of refined varieties (an apple instead of apple juice, whole grains instead of white flour).

In your 30s: Rather than cutting out certain foods or reducing calories, eat smaller, more frequent meals that include a balanced mix of carbohydrates, protein, and fat.

In your 40s: To minimize hormone-level changes that may cause weight fluctuations, replace animal protein and fat with vegetarian sources, like nuts, seeds, beans, avocado, and quinoa.

In your 50s: To fight abdominal fat, focus on making exchanges. Skip coffee and diet soda in favor of green tea, or ditch high-sugar sweets and have a portion of dark chocolate instead.

In your 60s: As your body loses lean muscle, your metabolism naturally slows, putting you at risk for weight gain. Choosing high-quality proteins can help maintain muscle and your body's calorie-burning ability.
