Since I’ve started blogging, I’ve heard lots of rumblings from young women that guys today are just…different. Dates have become “hangouts at the apartment with a hope of a hook up,” less men willing to wine and dine, and more men avoiding marriage. And at least one author, Janice Shaw Crouse, author of Marriage Matters,Read More…
Since you’ve got some extra time off…
Did you know Bob Dylan had a secret, very BLACK wife?
There’s a new trend gaining ground in the black community, and it has nothing to do with rapping, gold teeth, and sagging pants.
Our lovely Tracy Renee…
Her family is putting on the pressure, and it’s not helping that she’s not getting attention with the men she desires.
The shine is unbelievable, and my hair doesn’t feel the least bit brittle or dry.
Yum, yum, delicious.
Turning heads, coy smiles, and sudden attempts at conversation: things I experience everyday down in London. I’m going to answer the question I’m sure all of you have been wondering. Are the Brits down for the swirl? YES, ladies. And the desire is strong.
Does marriage really need defending? And, if so, from what? Other kinds of marriage, like maybe interracial marriage? Sounds a lot like hate to me…
News about “Think Like a Man” star Michael Ealy secretly married a non-black woman was posted today on the Essence Facebook fan page. My girl Rasheda posted a link and made a comment about all the hateful, bitter black women who felt like they lost another brotha to a “white” woman. So I moseyed on over to see for myself, and low and behold the claws were out.

Lame aunts, you know who you are. It’s five days till Christmas and you still having gotten a gift for your adorable little niece or nephew because you have absolutely no recollection of your childhood and you don’t even know what kids are liking these days.

Now you can brave the halls of Wal*Mart, Target, or Toys R’ Us with confidence knowing that you know exactly what to get and that little Chica or Chico will love it.
It may surprise some that American sisters and African sisters are also living happily in Korea with their husbands and children.
So them how strong being soft can be.
Don’t be like the hamster who runs on the wheel, huffing and puffing and going nowhere.
This holiday season, why not be a catalyst for REAL change in the life of someone you care about, by giving the gift of health?
A common problem with fine-haired naturals is knotting at the ends which leads to breakage. I’d given up twist outs altogether because of this problem, but discovered a technique by accident that virtually eliminates the tangles while still giving you a wavy-twist out effect. The secret: Instead of 15-30 small twists, which makes your hair 30x more likely to tangle, do four or five flat twists, and it’ll all come out the same in the end (minus all those fairy knots!)
How you see yourself affects just about every aspect of your life, so it’s worth thinking about.
I’ve recently come to terms with the fact that I am an awkward, black, female introvert.
