Aggressive or Assertive…Which One Are You?

Posted on 28 May 2011 at 5:25pm


There are certain stereotypical adjectives used to describe black women, ‘bossy’, ‘angry’, ‘pushy’, ‘arrogant’, ….’aggressive’. Ever been called any of these labels and thought ‘no I’m not, I’m just assertive”. While it might be the case that somebody has accused you time and time again of being one of the above, it has nothing to do with the colour of your skin. If you’re  aggressive, well then your aggressive. Call it what it is.   It’s about your ability to recognize how and why you are using a forceful nature to put your point across.


Do We Love It? Cassie’s Revamped Hair Do…

I don’t…I generally don’t like this style though I have seen it work on a few women I really don’t think it works on Cassie, but that’s just me! I just don’t get attraction of the long on one side and bald on the other, but she is not givin’ up on it and was recently seen out with a recreation of her quirky signature look at the Carol’s Daughter’s Launch Event in New York.


Do you love it or loathe it?

Bey Works It OUT @ The Billboard Awards…Check Out Live Performance

Posted on 23 May 2011 at 9:26pm

Tonight Las Vagas is hosting this years Billboard Awards and Beyonce was in her absolute element when she performed her new track ‘Girlz’. I purposely did not post the video on sassy as I really thought it was over hyped…HOWEVER her performance tonight in Vegas is altogether another story.  Before  catapulting onto the stage to entertain the world at large, Beyonce was treated to some MAJOR butt-kissing accolades in honour of her work and achievements. Conspiracy theorist will have a field day with this one, it is kinda weird but  she really went for it Check It…

Women ‘Dressed As Men’…Do We Love It?

Posted on 23 May 2011 at 7:37pm

I saw this fab pic of Tyra Banks a few days back when she attended the CW Network’s 2011 Upfront at Jazz at Lincoln Center on May 19, 2011 in New York City. I’m loving this braces with wide pants look. I take pride in the fact that us ladies have such choice and versatility when it comes to our wardrobes. I love the idea that we can dress in a trouser suit and still look sassy and real cute.  I need a good reason and a good event so I can rock this very cul look.  Janet has gone so far as to add a tie and she still looks hot! Vicky B is lookin’ kinda thin here otherwise this could have been a very sharp look. What d’you think of women dressed as men…do we love it?

Motivational Message Of The Week: Success Easily Comes To Doing A Job You Enjoy…

Posted on 16 May 2011 at 5:52am

Most of us are ‘self stuck’ in jobs that we hate. It is a ‘self stuck’ because our lack of willpower to take risk and our fear of failure have glued us to a job that we have no passion to do. I have heard several friends and acquaintances saying, I do not like my job and the funny bit of this is that, they are not doing anything to get out of these jobs.

Success brings joy, peace and above all self pride and fulfilment. These churn out amazing feelings that settle the soul, an ingredient for long life and better human development. The opposite of these are what come with Failure.

Apart from the usual venom of being curtailed in life when stuck in a job you hate, it also affects your personal development, happiness, hope and zeal for a better tomorrow.

No matter how great or worthy your job pays you, if you hate it, a lasting success in such a job cannot be achieved. Even if it would, it will demand superfluous efforts which would not have been needed should you were doing a job you enjoy. After all these, you will still lack the inner peace, joy and self pride because you simply hate the job. (more…)

Have You Been Watching The Braxton Sisters?

Posted on 15 May 2011 at 7:37pm

I’m a massive reality TV junkie, I watch all of ‘em ( except Jersey Shore…too trashy). I can honestly say though there really hasn’t been much hype and talk about the Braxton sisters reality show, ‘Braxton Family Values’. I’m a HUGE Toni Braxton fan so I was good and ready with the ice cream and phone on silent when I watched the first episode.

The show aired on the 12th of April 2011 and with just four episodes shown so far,  it’s just been announced by American Channel WeTv that their segment will continue with another season, owing to the fact that the show is brining in big rating…really? I thought the  episodes I watched so far were kinda dry, over acted and all Toni seems to do is SLEEP! The younger sister Tamar’s voice just gets real annoying after the first episode. Aside from all that I do like the way these girls relate to each other, I argue with my one sister let alone five of us!!

There’s Traci ( The Wannabe); Towanda ( The Responsible One); Trina ( The Party Girl) and Tamar ( The Diva) and of Course The Lead Toni Braxton.

Is anyone else watching? What d’you think? Hit or Miss reality TV?

If you havn’t watched or been watching, check out some bits from the episodes below followed by some promotional pics for the show for Upscale magazine.
