I recently saw Beyond the Lights, drawn in by a female centered story as well as the actors playing the lead characters, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Noni Jean) and Nate Parker (Caz). I loved Gugu in Belle earlier this year and developed an appreciation for Nate Parker in the Great Debaters a few years ago. The filmRead More…
“My main issue is that I’m struggling terribly with trying to reconnect to my sexual side in a healthy way and generally see sex and my overwhelming desire for it in a good way and don’t know what to do about this. I have a history of sexual abuse in childhood by my cousin and rape in adulthood.”
Zoe Saldana has GOT to be the luckiest Afro-Latina actress in Hollywood right now…
I’ve gotten a bunch of requests from folks about how I acheived this look. So without further ado…
Guy loves girl, but hates her “hood” name. Take a look at what I say.
I ran across this video via our Facebook fan page after Stephanie and Vijay sent me a wedding photo from their recent nuptials on June 21. Someone found the video and I couldn’t help smiling throughout the whole thing.
This is me, only…slightly glow-y. My eyes are brighter, my teeth whiter, my face smoother. This is a common technique professional photographers charge an arm and a leg for, but you can do the same thing with your selfies with Beauty Box, an free online app that allows you to take pictures, or upload your old ones and enhance them with a variety of filters.
Now that I am becoming SO experienced in relationship matters (quit rolling your eyes, that was said “tongue-in-cheek”)…. I want to share my rule that I call the “three fingers, three second” rule that applies for anyone involved in a relationship. Then I want everyone to chime in with their implementation of this rule.
It looks like Iyanla Vanzant is a fan of No Wedding No Womb. There’s just so much truth in what she’s saying, and it echos so much of what we teach, preach and nag about on this space. Some folks are getting real defensive about what Miss Vanzant has to say, because hit dogs holler and black folks especially don’t like to be told that their poop stinks.
This fall the fashion is taking the spring trends and dragging them to the dark side.
I ran across this video by “Mehow,” a self-proclaimed pick-up artist. At first, I was struck at how nerdy and corny this guy looks, but once you get passed that you’ll find he has some really insightful things to say that might come in handy the next time you pick up your iPhone to text that guy you like.
Urban Decay has a nail polish in my favorite shade of purple. Are you all aware of how much I LOVE purple? If not…take a look around.

My news feed has been going crazy lately and I’m no dummy, how many times must I see “Orange is the New Black” before I caved in and watched. I know the independent television series providers are capable of producing quality shows so I had faith in the great reviews I’ve read so far. I didn’t read any reviews, per say, rather I planted myself on my couch and hit the Netflix. And boy, oh, boy am I happy I did……..
If you got a chance to catch ABC’s “Extreme Weight Loss” on Tuesday, then you got to meet the intelligent, beautiful, bubbly, ambitious and morbidly obese Chantell. At only 25 years-old, she weighed in at 327 pounds. But according to her family, she looks “just fine.” This, coming from a family plagued with diabetes and other obesity-related health problems.
Wait until the new site is up and our forum gets popping. You guys won’t know what to do with yourselves.
I’m gonna go ahead and ask….what’s the worst thing about being the rare flower in the garden?
The entire city of Chicago is abuzz with the news that former Richard Daley is dating again. And take a look at who she is.
I read some articles over the weekend that left me shocked, angry, and speechless. The first was about a high school principal accused of racist verbal attacks against two black teachers. She allegedly compared their looks to gorillas and scoffed at big floppy lips and nappy hair. As horrible as that seems, that’s not the worst of the accusations. Both teachers feel that their poor evaluations were racially motivated.

Got this note from a young girl the same week as they guy who wrote in with the skinhead brother. Time to address how to properly deal with bigots.
