My most recent event was hosting the Modern Vintage Experience at Theory Lounge this past week, closing out A3C Weekend.

I was a little nervous at first because I’m just getting my feet wet with hosting but the gals at So Fly Management were awesome! They gave me free range to host however it was most comfortable for me.

I LOVE talking to people, hell just talking period! Lol! Y’all know this! But talking… in front of a crowd… keeping them entertained… while not boring them to tears… yeah, that’s the new beast I’m learning to tackle! Lol!

But I got up there, confident & ready to do the damn thang. And I had a blast!!

 

The artists were super talented, the crowd participated & I felt so comfortable on the mic!

I even got to do a few interviews for my show, The Happy Hour!


A big thank you to Alicia & Patrice at So Fly Management for inviting me to host.

& a big thank you to Theory Lounge for having us plus a big 💋Muah!💋 to the chefs & bartender!! That salmon was seasoned to perfection & my drink “Georgia on My Mind” was EVERYTHING!!

Curly Hair Questions

Curly Hair Questions

Neutrals

Our hair does amazing things & there are so many textures, colors and types! “Black hair” encompasses a VERY broad spectrum so people, expand your mind beyond that teeny tiny box that says it’s either weave or it’s nappy.

I get that people don’t know but some things people ask are just ridiculous!! Here are some of the Curly Hair Questions I get almost daily:

Is that a wig?

Lol! No. & no you can’t touch it.


Can you do my hair like that?!

No, I’m not a hair stylist. But you can watch how I did it on YouTube.


How does your hair do that?

 

I went to bed with my hair twisted, plaited, knotted, rolled or contorted some kind of way & more than likely it was not cute. lol! Believe Beyonce if you want, I did not wake up like this!


Natural hair is expensive! How do you keep up with all this?

It’s actually about the same. The difference is you thought having natural hair was just going to be easy when in fact, it’s still maintenance & you’re still spending money


Who colors your hair?
Jesus. No, I’m serious. It really grows this way



So you must be mixed

Yeah, with Black & African American

img_6148

Well then you have to be Albino!

😑 No, no I don’t & no I’m not. No offense to Albinos but just because someone has light skin with light it doesn’t automatically make them an Albino

Rare Traits in Dark-skinned PeopleTwo naturally-occurring rare characteristics in dark-skinned people: blue eyes and blonde hair.

 


What are some of the crazy curly hair questions you’ve received? Post them below!

Who Stole What Now?!

Who Stole What Now?!

Plums

This generation is doomed.

Not the babies just being born but the ones in grade school right now, these 90’s babies. They got the game, the players, & life in general all effed up!

I was doing my usual peruse through the Shade Room & came across this:

MiMi put it nicer than I EVER could have! My response would’ve been along the lines of “Oh you poor, sad, ignant, misguided child! You should use the same phone you used to type that bulls**t to google ‘braids’ or ‘cornrows’, see who’s pictures pop up, learn something & then #sitdownandshutup”
So child -lawd I hope that’s a child & not somebody grown- you mean to tell me that you grew up with the Internet, have it at your fingertips, but you REFUSE to use it!! Google is not your enemy! & she’s always free .99!!

From Kendall Jenners “bold braids” to Kim & Khloe’s trendsetting boxer braids


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*insert the most dramatic eye roll ever seen*

Just because your “fave” wears or does something doesn’t mean they’re the originators. Hell just looking at the Kardashian-Jenner clan from the first years of the show to now you can see there isn’t much original period!

& no, I’m not hating. From time to time I too find myself keeping up with the Kardashian’s. The problem is when we (African Americans) do something it’s less than but when a white woman does it it’s now “trendsetting, unique and bold”!

Chile Bye

If you walk up to a random black woman on the street 9.99 times outta 10 she wore braids as a child, has some right now (under her weave counts) or plans on getting some for the summer.

Amandla Stenberg said it best but the main thing I want y’all to do is your research before you try to come for somebody -keyboard killers & thumb thugs especially!

Oh, also I need you to know & recognize that #BlackGirlMagic is real. We are beautiful, our hair defies gravity, our melanin is popping and you’re mad.  We don’t need your permission to do or be anything & whether have agree or choose to be bitter this movement ain’t goin nowhere.

What He Really Deserves

What He Really Deserves

Plums

Saw this on IG & figured I’d share my thoughts

Aside from the typos I think the post is valid. I agree with being your partner’s source of solace not stress. I sing every lyric of Destiny’s Child’s “Cater To You”. I’m the girl that knows she’s gonna spoil her husband & he is gonna thank sweet baby Jesus everyday & night to have found a catch like me!

However, there’s always that sneaking thought that what you do is will never be good enough:

Yeah… lol! I’m not to the extreme mindset of @Only1_Ms_Stylisk but sometimes, yeah! You can believe you’re in this great relationship & things are picture perfect but in reality he’s out here slanging his wang to every Jill, Dawn & Nancy on the street!

So how do you determine if your man is good enough that deserves to be treated like a king?

The answer is simple: he will show you!

Of course that’s easier said than done. When you first get in a relationship people show you what they want you to see, so he’s gonna be prince charming -and you’ll put on your best act as well. You haven’t seen the real him so why would you spoil him with your best sex (or any sex for that matter), breakfast in bed, massages, home cooked meals, etc? Not saying you can’t do any of that for him but damn, you don’t hafta put all your cards on the table so soon! And I know it’s hard, especially when he’s showing you everything you’ve been wanting! Trust me I’ve been there, I’ve been that girl! I was all about playing wifey thinking if I show him what I all I can be for him upfront he’s gonna want to hold on to me even more! Nah! Majority of the time they just enjoyed the cow & the milk that they got for free & moved on to the next girl. Smh.

There are benefits to that though. As time went on those same guys ended up wanting that ol thing back but by then I had come to my senses and moved on! You snooze you lose! I’ve since learned  that while having an ex come crawling back feels pretty nice, not wasting my time on f**k boys in the first place would have saved me so much head & heart aches. I didn’t let those relationships ruin me as a “good woman”, I’ve been screwed over plenty of times (& put up with the bs that eventually got me screwed over) but I’m not gonna take that out on the next man.

So how do you determine what he deserves? Let him earn that spot in your life! Every person in any type of relationship you have will show you what position they deserve in your life. Pay attention to that & react accordingly.

No More Necole Bitchie?

No More Necole Bitchie?

Reds

Today is a bittersweet day for this blogger & many others inspired by a sassy, big haired, gorgeous gal with the bitchie-est blog on the web! Today Necole Bitchie announced she will no longer run NecoleBitchie.com and is pursuing her true passion.

NB tweet1

For 7 years NecoleBitchie.com has kept us informed on all the hottest celeb news & gossip. For me there was no Media Take Out, if Necole didn’t post it I didn’t care. I loved that her posts were opinionated & would read celebs for days for their poor choices, but still had a level of class. She had boundaries, not a whole lot, but enough to clearly separate NecoleBitchie.com from a trash gossip site.

A part from being a successful blogger, Necole inspired many with her life story of losing her parents, being homeless hoping from couch to couch of family members all trying to pursue her dream of growing her blog into a huge following and making a name for herself. I followed her site for years but I recalled first reading her story online & that same day I realized I had no excuses! I had told people for months I wanted to start an online magazine but had yet to put anything together. Then in 2011 I read her interview with Black Enterprise magazine & it motivated me to not just have a website but build brand and not be afraid to be the face of that brand. I haven’t had the chance to meet her (yet!) but she was my biggest & most constant inspiration for what you see here!!

Necole has inspired countless women through public speaking, live panels and always seeming like your homegirl that always has the tea. So to my blogger bestie (in my head), I wish you all the best on your future endeavors!! You’re a force to be reconned with & I can’t wait to see what you do next!

Should I Waist Cinch/Trim/Train? Pt.2

Should I Waist Cinch/Trim/Train? Pt.2

Neutrals

If you missed part 1 last Friday check it out here

There’s a lot of mixed information out there about waist training. So much so that you can find articles to support whatever side you take on this topic. I know, I did my “research” before purchasing 2 waist clinchers and a waist trimmer. But which side is right?

What I’ve found is that it’s ALL true! I don’t have X-ray’s to claim that my organs were affected but after consistently wearing my smaller waist cincher my ribs were always sore. However it helped my posture tremendously and I did lose inches around my waist. So which do you listen too?

Well first understand that no matter how many cinchers, trimmers, lifters, miracle wraps you use, nothing will change unless you make a lifestyle change. That means eating healthier & being active for at least 30mins a day.

IMG_6914.PNG

I’m so happy  a healthy life style was discussed on BET’s Being Mary Jane earlier this week!

IMG_6928.JPG

Ladies I wish we could all just cut the bullshit! Stop with the excuses, the denial & the short cuts! No one is trying to make you a size 2, skinny women aren’t the devil and having “more to love” won’t be so cute when your joints start failing in your 40’s!

There’s no magic pill/ shake/ apparatus! These things exist to make money off of people focused on instant gratification! Remember nothing will work unless YOU do! Both cinchers and trimmers can be effective if used responsibly. They are an enhancer to achieve results for a problem area (you can buy trimmers for your arms & thighs as well). However if all you’re doing is putting it on a few hours a day then you’ll see some changes BUT you’re just temporarily shifting the body fat. Prime example is a muffin top -it’s created because the waist band of the pants are too tight. The person doesn’t gain a smaller waist, the fat just moved to another place. So yeah, you’ll have an hourglass figure with it on but the time spent not wearing the waist trainer your body is readjusting to its previous form. You’re basically be taking 2 steps forward and one step back when you could skip all that and just make healthier lifestyle choices!

Now don’t think I’m bashing either the waist cincher or waist trimmer. I’ve used them both and have been active & inactive in both. I no longer wear the cincher but you won’t catch me at the gym without my trimmer! I’ve seen real results because I put in real work!

IMG_6689-0.PNGIMG_6688-0.PNG

At the end of the day you’re going to wear what you want, call yourself whatever you want… just don’t end up like her. I think we all can agree she looks a hot ass mess! I can only hope she did this on purpose to prove a point… but I doubt it.

IMG_6770.PNG

Speaking of, butt lifters & pads are dumb so please don’t waist your money on them. To me it’s like the equivalent of a water bra -cute with clothes on but you can’t fool them forever!

Should I Waist Cinch/Trim/Train? Pt.1

Should I Waist Cinch/Trim/Train? Pt.1

Neutrals

My friend April posted this on Facebook. Had to share it because it inspired this post:IMG_6694.PNG

I laughed so hard when I saw this but she’s right. Shortcuts are never the move but many women are using them to get the ideal body type. These days it’s a literal hour glass: big breasts, teeny tiny waist and big hips and butt.

(null)

I have no clue if the above pic was photoshopped, I just found it on Instagram. I say that because some women are actually built like this -but more often than not they had some help. For example there’s camera filters, specific posing angles and photoshop apps for the internet and IG, but what about when you want that look in person? Do you know there’s such a thing a selfie surgery? Smh. Regardless, no one batts an eye if you’ve had breast implants or liposuction or man boobs job, but the new new is butt fillers or injections, and waist cinching… or is it waist trimming? …waist training? Confused? It’s okay, I’ll explain, because there is a difference.

Waist Training is the process of reducing or shaping a woman’s waist through gradual body modification using a corset, cincher or trimmer belt (my personal definition)

A Waist Cincher is a type of short corset that cinches, or pulls in, at the waistline. Functional waist cinchers make a woman’s waist appear smaller than it actually is. (via ehow.com)

Waist Trimmer belts are used to help remove excess water weight from your abdomen region. The belt is placed around your waist and worn when you work out and do your typical daily choirs. As the belt contains the heat from your abdomen, you will sweat off excessive water. (via ehow.com)

Every time you turn around a celeb with a banging body is endorsing their own or somebody else’s cincher or trimmer


It’s hard not to buy in when you see what you believe are their results. & it doesn’t make you weak in the least bit to want to change something about yourself or to admire someone who has the body you wouldn’t mind strutting around in. I personally feel I have a healthy body image but I love how gorgeous Amber Rose’s body is! I mean, how could you not?!

But back to the subject at hand, waist training. I spoke earlier of celebs and other curvy women on IG showcasing their results, but does it really work? Is what April said on Facebook true? What are the pros and cons? I’ve tried both methods and will share my experience next week in part 2!

I’ve been cooking a lot this year & I really enjoy it! I’m always trying new things, experimenting with flavors & trying to make eating healthy fun -cause I mean, baked chicken & rice get old quick! Lol!
Now keep in mind I’m no top chef, just a chick that LOVES to eat & tries to keep it healthy & who prefers her food with flavor!

Kold Kurriculum poster

College life at an HBCU has yet to accurately depicted on the big screen but that’s all about to change! Said to “cover several issues such as bullying, rape, peer pressure, and hazing”, Leonard McCrary (a fellow ASU alum!) recently released the trailer to his much anticipated indie film Kold Kurriculum!! Check it out:

[youtube http://youtu.be/g1rYaI24iFk]

Having known Leonard for years & following his thespian career I knew a movie was in the works, it was only a matter of time. I know this was no easy feat for him- being a full time educator & father, being a newly wed AND welcoming his new baby girl all in 2014!! Congrats sir!!

There has not been a release date set for Kold Kurriculum, but it is expected out in 2015. Be sure to check back here for exclusive details on the film & upcoming projects!
