A little Inspiration To Keep It Real n Keepin’ It Natural…

Posted on 28 Apr 2011 at 4:56pm

Oh how I wish I could say this song was perfect for me…I wear weaves, wigs and braids with the best of us. I love the idea that being more natural is becoming appealing. Celebs like Solange (Beyonce’s younger sister) are certainly adding to the natural afro appeal. It so much more less hassle and stress free having it natural plus it’s less damaging to our hair. I always worry what all that tugging and pulling and chemical exposure will lead to when I’m a much older women with grey hair. I guess if I don’t watch it, it’ll all fall out!

Check out this video from Dead Presidents dedicated to Mother’s Day and keeping it as real as we can. I’m a little more tempted to check out those natural styles after listening to this track.

Ever tempted to grow out the perm or take out the weave? P.S…this does not include weaves, braids, wigs or anything that looks similar to natural lookin’ hair ‘wink wink’.


Murses: Could You or Would You Date A man Who Owned One of These?

Posted on 28 Apr 2011 at 12:34pm


What’s a murse I hear you ask…for those of you who have never heard of this, it’s basically slang for a man purse. I saw this pick of Will.I am and thought…WHY?!! Is this what too much money does? Don’t get me wrong I am always slightly jealous of lugging around my big bags getting shoulder pains while by BF whistles bag free beside me. He has his wallet and phone in his pocket and his good to go! I always figured unless your a businessman man on your way to the office or the gym or class etc what’s a man’s need for a murse ? I’m not referring to the leather shoulder bag,  I’m talking a bling female looking bag that makes you start to question the man’s sexual orientation…if you get what I mean.

Check out these pics…would this put you off a guy if he turned up to picked you up for a date? or would you just be like…Uuuoh I could borrow that!

Motivational Message Of The Week: Success Lies In Developing The Opportunity At Hand

Posted on 25 Apr 2011 at 5:27am

Success is one great but a lousy concept which mankind pursues day in and day out. Its definition is blob, so as the path to achieving and maintaining it.

Now and again, we wake up with the zeal and energy to pursuit success, aiming to achieve distinctions in our chase and living fulfilling lives.

Our strong desire to achieve the success we yarn for in order to better ourselves or to uplift our social standards leads us to question or neglect the talents and opportunities we have at hand.

It is very common to hear people saying “I wish I get that opportunity or when I get the opportunity, I will…”  More than not, we believe a new opportunity must exist or present it self for one to be successful.

Closely related to the above, we are also in-tune with a very deceiving concept of; there must be the existence of a new or extraordinary talent for one to be successful. (more…)

Posted on 11 Apr 2011 at 8:44pm


Is it me or are these boots HOT!!! I’m sure like me, once the lust of the boots has simmered you start to think where and how would I walk in these?! I haven’t reached that point yet.  Check out those needle point heels!  I think these boots are stunning and would buy in a HOT minute….if I had the odd $5,200!! Yes you read right! I’m generally not a fan of Tom Ford. I find most of his design way to riske and OTT and on a normal day for me these boots are crazy sexy but I just love ‘em.

The boots were designed by the fashion designer Tom Ford for his limited edition spring 2011 collection.  Modelled by Eva Marcilles from Season 3 of America’s Next Top Model…Hot? or Not?

Sex & Relationship: Things Not To Tell Your Partner…

Posted on 11 Apr 2011 at 7:25pm

Ooopps! I have always thought when you are in a relationship, you are some way fixed together with your partner and as such, he/she must know all  that you know. I am not the kind of person who likes to hide things from the partner, not because I am a talkative or cannot keep a secret. This is solely because no matter how clean or non-malicious something is, if you do not tell your partner and it pops up later somewhere, he/she begins to look beyond the ordinary…

Anyway, I just stumbled upon the below article on Yahoo which seems to suggest that I am wrong with my approach to telling my partner everything. Maybe, this is why today, I am still looking for that partner who will stay forever. Do not fall into my pit, read below for what may help your relationship…


Chatting about your day at work, sharing your most intimate feelings, admitting to cheating… communication has become the focal point of modern relationships, with many a relationship sunk following a communication faux pas.

Today, relationship codes have changed and a fusional couple is no longer an ideal model. Having a drink with a friend, or dinner with an ex – without telling him… This was unthinkable a few decades back, but quite the norm today!

The ‘me’ is no longer absorbed into the ‘we’ and independence is sacred, individuality to be cultivated; up to a certain point, that is. Do you know when to let it all out and when to keep your mouth shut?

What should you be telling your partner?

“Not telling all is actually a sign of maturity,” says psychologist Jacques-Antoine Malarewicz. On the other hand, demanding total transparency is a sign of a lack of self-confidence.

According to the psychoanalyst Catherine Bensaïd, playing the total honesty card in a relationship carries the risk of trivialising honesty. “Sharing it all with your partner without limit, puts your mystery at risk – a power that is essential in the game of seduction.” Without taking the immaturity of over-the-top verbose communication into account.

“If I systematically go through every single little detail of my day point-by-point, I feel like I’ve become a child again answering all the questions my mum asked me,” says Fran. In the long term this kind of endless verbosity is so boring and passion-numbing that you risk ending up as friends rather than lovers.

The right moment for telling the “big” stuff

While little secrets are necessary, certain silences can be really heavy in a relationship. “Being fired or getting diagnosed with an illness are subjects that need to be discussed,“ says Malarewicz. Feeling comfortable talking about the “big” subjects is in this case, a sign of your confidence in your partner. So many couples have come out of serious situations even stronger because of good communication between them.

Sharing your feelings should be natural, but not at any time or place. Both of you have your own past and emotional baggage that should be understood and taken into consideration. No point wanting to get it all out there in the heat of a massive dispute or in a moment of difficulty. Catherine Bensaïd advises that you, “Waiting for the right moment is the foundation of respectful communication within a couple”. And be attentive to how you talk and how you are listening to your partner.

To tell or not to tell… that is the question!

These few tips should help you find the middle ground between brutal honesty and deafening silence:

  • What you should not tell: your little secrets – You’ve been hanging around with your best friend after work and so of course, you’ve come home late. Or you’ve had dinner with an ex. You know that it’s going to make your partner go crazy, with a fight sure to follow. Shhh! Keep it to yourself and you’ll avoid useless discussions and squabbles, while keeping your freedom in tact, with no damage (for either of you).
  • What you should tell: all about money – You’ve caved in a bought the latest iPad or Jimmy Choo shoes – blowing the budget in the process. Tell your partner about it and find a solution to the budget blowout together: don’t eat out for the next couple weeks for example. If you’ve been fired, there’s no use in pretending to go to work everyday (it’s more common than you’d imagine). Just put your cards on the table and let your partner offer you a little support.
  • Maybe you should tell or maybe not: cheating on them – As far as cheating is concerned, you should probably tell him about it if is a direct result of a problem in your couple. “We’re not getting on anymore and I’m seeing someone else.”  However, if it was a one-night stand in a moment madness at an office party, there’s probably no need to own up… You probably already feel guilty, are loving your partner even more now, and you aren’t planning a repeat, so telling them will serve little purpose.

Motivational Message Of The Week: Being What You Might Have Been…

Posted on 11 Apr 2011 at 6:34am

I have come across several people who have said to me “I might have been a doctor, a nurse, a lawyer or a successful person”. The assertions of such individuals stipulate that, they think the chance of being what they might have been in life is lost.

It is common among us all to think along the above lines when we reflect on certain aspects of our lives. One crucial thing we do not recognize and even if we do, we do not give enough weight is the fact that “it is never too late to be what you might have been”.

Putting in the strength, dedication, focus and subjecting your desire to consistent push is what you need to become what you have always wanted to be and might have been. (more…)
