The Bride Didn't Toss Her Bouquet and I Loved It

I haven’t been to many weddings in my life, but anytime I’m invited to one I get excited because I (1) love celebrating other people’s happy occassions (2) LIVE for a great reception, particularly the free food and (3) get to put on a dress and be all dressed up with some place to go. On Saturday,... Read more »

Can I Seriously Date Him If He Eats Like Crap?

Right now, there are at least a handful of people who I KNOW will never babysit my imaginary, yet-to-be born child. As far as they’re concerned, my baby will be more under wraps than “Blanket” Jackson. Yes, I want nothing more than to have a full stock of potential babysitters, but sometimes these people –...

Reflections on turning 33 on 3/11

Reflections on turning 33 on 3/11
Monday, March 11, 2013 was a special day for a few reasons: The March new moon. The first day of Deepak Chopra’s and Oprah’s 21-Day Meditation Challenge. …and the most important reason:  It was my birthday! I’m a bit obnoxious about every birthday, but this one was more special than all the others for me.... Read more »

Need Help Cleaning House? There's a Class for That!

Need Help Cleaning House? There's a Class for That!
Huge family Christmas Eve gatherings.  Jumping off the pillars of the concrete front porch and running around. Playing double dutch with my cousins and aunts in the driveway. These are things I remember loving about my grandmother’s house as a little girl. So, how did it end up that my mother could get me to... Read more »

Getting Sexy with Rashida KhanBey and ERUPTIONS Dance

Thumbnail image for 'Getting Sexy with Rashida KhanBey and ERUPTIONS Dance'
I am laying. Flat on my back. In a darkened room, with the faintest bit of light tracing my body. My hips raise and lower counter-clockwise. Smooth, slow pelvic circles, keeping time with the haunting melody of Lil Wayne’s “She Will.” Indeed, I will. And I did. I am sexy. Free. Focused. It’s like me, dancing at... Read more »

Getting CHANEL Blue Satin Polish Beats Getting 'The Blues'

Getting CHANEL Blue Satin Polish Beats Getting 'The Blues'
It’s “just one of dem days” like Monica sang about. Just feeling a little blah today. The plan was to come home, put on my comfy clothes, curl up on my loveseat, pull my Snuggie over my head, cry and fall asleep. Either I’d wake up later tonight feeling revitalized OR  just to go to the bathroom (curse this detoxing!) so...

31 Day Reset Challenge with Rosetta Thurman: Day 2

31 Day Reset Challenge with Rosetta Thurman: Day 2
Okay, Rosetta cut right to the chase with Day 2!  I wasn’t trying to do this much thinking so soon-Ha!  The topic for Reset Day 2 was “Take an Honest Assessment of Your Life”. Needless to say, completing yesterday’s exercises didn’t go as quickly as I’d hoped (I was working on it before going to a... Read more »

Boutique Hotel in Manhattan, "Sister Act" on Broadway and Southern Cuisine in Brooklyn: a crash course in where to stay, what to do and where to eat on a weekend getaway to New York

Boutique Hotel in Manhattan, "Sister Act" on Broadway and Southern Cuisine in Brooklyn: a crash course in where to stay, what to do and where to eat on a weekend getaway to New York
I don’t just like things to be awesome. I need them to be awesomer–more awesome. I appreciate people, places and things with character. A story. Ambiance. Aesthetics is extremely important to me. It’s the nuances and idiosyncrasies of people, places and things that give them depth and make them memorable. Basically, I like any nouns I encounter to... Read more »

The NEW Face of Amber Alert: Amber Cole is Me...and You

Time travelin’. It’s about two in the morning and the air is electric with the after buzz of the club letting out. He’s a bit of an exhibitionist and I’m a Pisces. After a few chuckled “I don’t know”s, I walk with him behind the club. We are right off the alley–us and the brick... Read more »

"Daykeeper": Another hot Foreign Exchange song

"Daykeeper": Another hot Foreign Exchange song
I think I’m officially an FE fan now! Some of my peeps have been talking about them for years, and I get it now.  I discovered this track last week, along with “Something to Behold,” but I just figured out this evening this was Foreign Exchange after Googling the lyrics.  This is another example of...
