"Annie" was one of my most-loved movies of all time. I introduced my children to it and it's a pleasure we share together. I must admit I wasn't sure what to expect from Quvenzhané Wallis taking over the role as Annie, but from the looks of it, she's fit in just fine. There's a few … Read More...
OMG…wow…super-duper congratulations to Lupita!! As Lupita Nyong’o tearfully accepts the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and thanks Steve McQueen for giving her the chance to shine. In an article written recently by The Root, one writer admits that an American-born black person would not have given Lupita a chance because she doesn’t fit the […]
About the most interesting part of the Oscars is the fashion. That’s why I watch…otherwise I’d be watching last week’s Young and the Restless. Well…I can tell you who I’m picking… I love everything about this dress except one thing. It calls too much attention to her (lack of) chest. Lupita has a […]
The question: On the 3rd day of my new job I met the most beautiful and sexy woman I have ever met. She is black. It was very brief and before I jetted out of the break room (where we exchanged around 10 words) she asked me my name. I responded and asked for hers. […]
You Saw it Here First! Make Up Trends for the Oscars…Lori Taylor of SMASHBOX, Cory Bishop from Gorgeous Spill It
I don’t know about you, but I’m totally disinterested in who gets what award for the Oscars tonight. I’m more into what everyone will be wearing. “Each year I’m asked what the Red Carpet trends will be. I’ve definitely seen three distinct looks this season. A classic Hollywood glamour look with a defined cat eye […]
From time to time we discuss names black Americans give their children. I have seen some pretty outlandish names encroached upon innocent children black and white alike who have to grow up and live in this society. Some names subject children to endless bullying. Having survived childhood teasing and possible bullying there is employment to consider. It is […]
Last night I decided to straighten my hair to change my look up a bit while filming “Swirlr.” You guys know I’m all about rocking my ‘fro, because its great camouflage for scraggly ends…which I have an abundance of. But because I’m a hopeless procrastinator and didn’t have time for a trim, I needed to […]
Well it looks like Robin might be seriously regretting how much he’s been acting a fool. Like I mentioned in an earlier post, Robin has always taken pride in the fact that, unlike his dad, he had a lasting marriage. Now that part of his prized identity is in jeopardy it looks as if he’s […]
Cheddar Bacon And Scallion Soufflé Soufflé is a lightly baked cake made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites combined with various other ingredients and served as a savory main dish or sweetened as a dessert. The word soufflé is the past participle of the French verb souffler which means “to blow up” or more […]
What will it take for some women to realize that some dudes just aren’t worth having? The comment section will routinely blow up during conversations revolving around Black women and their disappointment in having not been chosen by the males in their immediate social circle. I just watch the shenanigans and shake my head because […]
This is my ode to pink. A color, that if I were put into as a child, I’d scream bloody murder. I hated the feminine soft color, so Barbie, so girlie, so submissive. I was everything but. I was a certified tomboy. I could climb trees with the best of them. That was then, and […]
I remember having conversations with some of my black girlfriends back in the day (way before I knew I’d marry interracially) about what it would take for us to entertain the idea of dating a white guy. Inevitably someone would declare, “If I ever date out, dude better look like Brad Pitt or it ain’t […]
