I Expected More From Time Magazine

July 3, 2012

I've been in this business long enough to know that the media doesn't report news, they create it. So why was I surprised when Time Magazine decided to misrepresent, skew, and twist the facts like almost every other publication has concerning the "Fifty Shades Phenomenon?" Because I expected more fr…

Toxic Friendship

June 17, 2012

I think the worst type of person to find yourself in a toxic friendship with is the girl/guy who tells you that you matter with words, but hasn't backed up the lip service with their behavior in quite a long time. They used to walk the walk once upon a time, so you forgive and forget on the first …

Gloom & Doom

June 1, 2012

I'm having one of those BLAH days. You know what I'm talking about: that day where nothing goes as planned from the second you wake up until the moment you go to sleep. That day when the dreary weather outside only makes one's mood that much more... BLAH. Anyway, unless we're talking about someone i…

Happy Mother's Day

May 13, 2012

I hope all the moms out there have a wonderfully self-absorbed day because we totally deserve it! Every other day of the year our focus is on others so basking in what we want for a change is healthy, necessary, and should happen far more often than it does. Enjoy yourselves!

Girlies With Curlies

April 9, 2012

I rarely go all cheerleader over hair products I try, but we girlies with natural curlies need to have each other's backs :-P Anyhoo, I've been using the hemp-based Marrakesh Aragon Oil treatment system and... it actually works!! Due to laziness, I'll just repost the review I posted on Amazon. I thi…

Happy 2012!

I had a great New Years and I hope every one of you did too! I rang in 2012 with my close friends and family, which is the way it should be. At 12:01 A.M. we had the traditional northern pork & sauerkraut meal for good luck, which was soooo good. (I'm glad I no longer live in the South because ham h…
