As I continue my exploration of cleaner makeup options that actually contain ingredients that can help my skin, give sun protection, and is free of chemicals and fillers, I keep circling back to 100% Pure Cosmetics. Particularly because they have four standout products that I absolutely love, including a foundation and powder that work onRead More…
I love when I see beautiful black women who are moving on and maximizing their options to include men of other races and cultures for dating and possible marriage. Remember I I’ve said a million times–with options comes power, and with power come respect. The Hubster and I just came from the nuptials of my little cousin, […]

See what’s new with Jane Iredale, NYX Cosmetics and Mally Beauty.
Pointdexter by definition: a nerdy person; an extremely smart person; one who dresses in nerdy fashion. By example: The floor is yours.
Yes; I’m starting to put these dudes on blast. Meet George Truly, ladies and gentlemen. He thinks black women are whores. All of them. Take a look at our exchange on my You Tube channel, regarding a totally respectful yet contrary point of view about the blockbuster, Straight Outta Compton: Now by his comment […]
I know the folks here have this one, so I’m going to post the question and let you take it away. Be gentle. 😉 Good morning, my name is “Jack.” To start, thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this. I have had one past relationship with a Jamaican woman […]
Here’s another example of what happens when black women fight for their own honor and take a break from fighting for everyone else’s. This is also a great example of people putting their outrage where their money is. I got wind of the initial story from the Facebook page, For Black Women Only. She gave […]
You might want to take a look at an article that came up on my time line titled, Confessions Of a Former Self Hating Black Man who Used to Bash Black women on Social Media. Much of what is included is what many of us already suspected, but it’s interesting to see it posted so nakedly […]
By: Carrie Thompson From 1965 Watts to current day church and street slayings of minorities, peaceful protests yielding martial law. Campaign rallies labeling every gradient of the brown shade felonious slackers capable of pillaging the nation without the protection of the infallible police. Late night walks and traffic stops equate bloodshed […]
Flirting can be a tedious job, inducing bouts of sweat and bowel irritation to those who are painfully shy. But even if you’re not, it’s sometimes hard to know just what to say to a guy you’re interested in without looking needy or aggressive. The reason why I love Matthew Hussey’s “Get the Guy” series […]
I got two similar letters recently related to shyness. One from a young black woman, the other from a young, white college student. Dear Christelyn, My name is Aaron Wade and I am a 21 year old college student. About a week ago a co-worker, J, introduced my to her cousin, M, who is black, […]
A fan of BB&W sent me a link today to a very powerful piece about how some black single mothers raise their sons, and how the methods of harsh and humiliating punishment is fueling the growing hatred manifest in many black men toward black women. Using the scene in Straight Outta Compton, where Dre’s mother […]
Last Saturday was the fourth annual NYX Face Awards…an event to award one lucky You Tube vlogger $25,000. It’s amazing what these extremely creative and talented people can do. This year, Glam&Gory took away the prize. Here’s one of her video submissions: Since me and ‘Maxi Me’ have a thing for makeup, we were all […]
Eenie, meenie, miney, moe Alpha, Beta, Average Joe by Savage Tango BAM!! The sound of the door behind me getting kicked in jarred me out of my nap and back into reality. I took my feet down off my desk so I could fully turn around to see what just happened back there, only to […]
I have the best dang darn job in the world. I’m able to encourage people to take chances in love. But when I get stuff like this, I know those pebbles I’m throwing in the pond are rippling far and wide. Christelyn, Like so many have already done I’m sure, I just have to thank […]
The last gasps of summer do have it’s benefits, ya’ll. It’s the time of year that fruits and vegetables are readily available at just about every region in the country for a decent price. As you scribble on your grocery list for next week’s shop, don’t forget to add these three: Tomatoes, eggplant, and […]
I’ve recently been vocal about the notion that people in our community like “a winner,” usually male, who have gained a level of fame and riches to become nearly untouchable and immune to consequences to felonious behavior. So much of what the black community’s pathology has been normalized, nobody wants to put “another black man” […]
Since the beginning of the month, I knew that at some point, I was going to address my reasons that I felt like the breakout hit, Straight Outta Compton should not be patronized by particularly black women, and was pretty clear about my reasons. For my effort to stand up for the honor of black […]
New York City is one of those places that you love to visit but don’t think you could ever live. There’s no shortage of amazing things to do, see and eat but there definitely is a shortage in our budgets. That said, I still like to get everything I can out of the Big Apple […]
