8 things to do with old glossys

I'ma magazine JUNKIE. Something about holding the latest month's shiny concoction of photos and blurbs makes me feel so...wonderful.

But what on earth do you do when you've got mounds of them? Now worries, I'm compiled a comprehensive list for you!

1. make a personal style collage highlighting your favorite items(this can assist greatly before aimless shopping trips)

2. make an inspiration board (filled with images that inspire YOU!)

3. Frame gorgeous images and mount as decor (this is such a cheap and chic way of glami-fying a dull room. (You can even buy cheap poster frames from target.)

4. shred/tear the pages and use them as shipping paper

5. roll it up and spank your puppy when he poops in the house

6. save a few in a trunk for your children or future generations (I wish my mom had saved some retro mags from back in the day. That's be so tight, right?)

7.laminate them and make a wallet/coin purse. remember the kool-aid jammer purse epidemic? if not click here

8. periodically rummage through back issues for content/prompt ideas for your personal blogs. If you're anything like me, you're always on the prowl for new site content!

[insert title]

me: if you could have any super power, what would it be?
someone else: invisibility
me: oh come on, something less predictable and generic
someone else: hmm....I would have my own theme music.
me: that's awesome.

"although a tear may be ever so near

cause that's the time, you must keep on trying


what's the use of crying?"

This would be the lyrics to my theme music.

Yes, some people smoke it, but I like to bathe with it.

Hemp Anyone?

No seriously, this "Dr. Bronner's magic soap" is bomb. It has a super faint smell, but my favorite is the mint scented one. So many natural oils are jam packed into this bad boy: jojoba oil, organic coconut oil, olive oil, tea tree extract, hemp oil,... You can even use it on your hair!

My Goodness; its like an organic smoothie =)

Here's your ccatch: It retails for roughly $10. Yeah I know, it sucks. But its totally worth it. Trust me.

as my thighs burn.

I never thought I would be able to perform in a damn-near-filled Georgia Dome, but once again...

it is time.

The 9th annual Honda Battle of the Bands will be on January 29th, 2011. This will be my second year performing with the Essence Danceline of CAU.

Here is a line up of the participating colleges :

Virginia State University

South Carolina State University

Slbany State University

Jackson State University

Bethune Cookman University

Clark Atlanta University

Winston-Salem State University

Tennessee State University

We've been conditioning and suddenly it feels as if all my holiday food went to my legs! So as my thighs burn, I'm going to try my best to think about the audience members ready to see an excellent show, and less about my burning hamstrings.

this might be harder than I thought.

Hope to see you there!

3. You can make money.

4. Its fun and passes time when boredom strikes.

The Need for Hair-oes.

In case you didn't know...I've been having a hair warfare since 2008....




I had a sincere NEED for hair-roes.

In his essay "The Need for Heroes," Langston Hughes informed [us] that heroes are not always famous, and they are not always the people we like to deem most significant. They are not always in the forefront.

After I decided to embrace the natural texture of my hair [circa 2008], I realized that I needed a hero. I needed a hair-o.

Seriously when I get down and out about my hair especially when I'm trying to detangle it, I go stalk natural hair photos to remember once again why I sought out the journey. I'm gonna share some of my inspirations.

Mop Top Maven


I've been stalking her blog for a while. Seriously. When she doesn't have new content I get angry. The LA based blogger/hair guru has a ton of hair health care tips and ingenius DIY projects too! She's undeniably inspirational to any natural interested in strengthening her tresses.

Lexi with the Curls

She's an awesome blogger with natural hair tips, advice, and a lovely set of curls atop her head! Check out her blog: Curls, Coils, and Kinks!

Model: Jordan Richardson

Artist: Janelle Monae

Model: Sabina Karlsson

Teyana Taylor

Reader Question: Do I have any natural hair onlookers that care to share some ways to cope with natural hair sad days?

I'm on Bloglovin!

Hey guys,

I'm on the bloglovin site now; I suggest you guys get on. I mean if you're a blogger its imperative to interact with your fellow bloggers, right? ;)

He don't love these hoes, but they love him.

Ok so my bf doesn't watch the game but I've been a die hard fan since the beginning and I got him to watch it tonight...

The biggest part of the show that he identified with was TI TI's girl and the Malik affair.

I have to admit. When I saw Ti Ti's chick I thought she was one of the eclectic-intellectual-feminist-perhaps-NON-CHEATING-types...but I guess I was wrong because she WILLINGLY wanted to mess with Melik's womanizing ass??

WHY??? lol....

Is it the thrill of the chase?
The thrill of getting away with it?
I mean come on, she didn't even get an hourly salary like Malik's stripper "Flap Jacks" from last season!!

I was so hurt, man. Doesn't she know Malik "doesn't love these hoes?"

With that said, I was wondering if you ladies [and/or] gents feel like women always want the player, regardless of the good guy in front of them, because I think I too have been guilty of the whole i-want-a-guy-that-doesnt-give-two-shits-about-me syndrome too.

How can we fix this? Or am I just insane?

SNOWED IN: The Game in my Brain

I don't want any snickers from Northerners that say 2 inches of snow isn't "snowed in." psshhh....if I can't drive my car I'm snowed in damn it! We Atlantans dont know anythingg about SNOW; this was apparent when a car almost hit me Sunday!

but enough about that

Since I've been stuck in watching re-runs of "The Game" for like two days straight...I've realized the power of images.

After watching The Game[my favorite show] I...

am inundated superficial thoughts.

I suddenly want a rich husband that plays football.

I suddenly get a stronger URGE to hurry up and turn 21 so I can sip wine on the daily.

I replace my excitement about being natural with with a [maybe-I-should-just-cover-it up-with-a-weave-like-them-so-I-can-snag-a-rich-husband?] mentality.

lesson learned:
Watch what you [watch.]; it can become you if you let it.
After all, images create thought, and thoughts provoke action.

ah well.

Can't wait to watch the new season tonight 11/11

Oneof my new years resolutions was to start writing on this thing everyday, even if its one line.

Well clearly...

I've already effed up. smh.

Anyway, the other day on the radio I was listening to this song, I think it was like one of those songs with PITBULL yellin in it, you know, I forgot the name of it but I was STRAIGHT JAMMIN until I heard this line and I just got really pissed. He said:

she was worth the money.

I was like WTF???
No. dude, no. If this sounds like one of those feminist-doublestandard-having-rants, or a complaint-from-a-part-time-conformist-party-hopping-college-student....I DONT CARE!!

The phrase just played over and over in my head....she was worth the money?

Seriously. What thee hell...

The degradation with equating a female a HUMAN BEING, with the value of a car, home, or some other inanimate just disgusting! I was genuinely surprised at how much it bothered me, but I rode on home in SILENCE.

I mean, I dont go out and purchase my friends and then at the end of the day kick my feet up and say..."gee, she/he sure was WORTH THE MONEY...all that lovely advice she/he gave me and all the time she/he spends with I work hard everyday at work just so I can BUY me some her/him!"

I mean, I know in this instance the song is referring to a male paying for RELATIONS and not necessarily a RELATIONship...but much easier would that whole process be if you got to know a person and the person actually wanted to give you relations in exchange for MERE companionship?! Amazing thought huh? I mean then you could spend your money paying a bill or even paying child support!


I mean come ON it really that painstaking to develop real relationships with people????

Says the girl that can probably count her friends on one hand.

Well, I guess it is pretty hard.
