We came back from a family vacation to the Poconos to find that our garden exploded. This was, by far, the biggest harvest I’ve gotten thus far. What you see are the following: Peaches Lemon Rhonde De Nice zucchini Yellow squash Cucumbers Tomatoes Eggplant Green beans Grapes Hot peppers Whew! And that’s not also countingRead More…
Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife Tiger Woods and mother to his two children, has reportedly upgraded from a philandering man-whore who sleep with skanky hoes to a ostensibly family-centered billionaire. This pretty blond rose from the ashes of humiliation and heartbreak to be back on #TeamWinning.
It is no secret that black women have always been desired for marriage by men of all races for centuries. I am always looking for images whether photographs or oil canvas like these Casta paintings. These are gems of black women of various shades with white males. I only found a few of these fascinting art and history collections. So if you know of any more, please add the links. I have included credits when available as these portraits all came from the Internet. My focus is black woman interracial unions, not the names of the offspring they produced. By today’s standards the children of such unions would simply be biracial or multiracial, not assigned to some one drop, racist label.
Despite what you may have heard, Atlanta, GA, isn’t all beautiful Southern weather, tree-lined streets and roads named some variant of Peach Tree, and a sizzling night life–the imagery of your favorite Usher song.
She’s between a rock and a hard place…
Online dating may not be the only way to meet a mate, but it certainly has become an essential part of the matrix. And since men are visual, women looking to catch the attention of the fellas need to make sure their profiles are perfect–the absolute perfect reflection of you. The goal is to get the guy to hover over your picture and profile long enough to allow the opportunity for him to get to know you on the inside. You know you’ve doing something right when you get a message from a tall and handsome man who writes, “I can’t stop looking at your picture.”
The red carpet extravaganza was two weeks ago. However, the looks presented on it are still impacting our SS 2013 wardrobe. Are the fresh faced looks and brightly colored lips a hint of what is to come in the Spring? I think so. Jessica Chastain (yes black women can adapt this look as well as Anne Hathaway’s), Anne Hathaway, Naomie Harris, Kelly Rowland and Kerry Washington are pointing the way to some amazing beauty trends this season.
It’s rare that you can come across an invention that is so simple and yet so ingenious as the Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother. Fluff your fro and gently soothe your scalp without messing up your style. Me soooo likey.
Every. Single. Banner. Says. The. Truth. THIS IS THE TRUTH! Why are you mad because Michael Bloomberg co-signs it? This warped thinking is the reason why the black community as a whole stays losing.
Last year a controversial tweet about women changing their last name went zooming around the internet:”Mr. Wrong will compromise your purity and then disappear. Mr. Right will protect your purity and then change your last name.” Those who are of the religious persuasion that believes a woman needs ‘coverture’ from a man may not have seen any problem with that tweet, but for the rest of us it was one more reminder of the lowly legal, moral, and ethical standing under which so many religions and codes of law once upon a time placed women.
It’s March, and we’re just months away from bikini season, and quite frankly, I’m getting a bit flabby in the parts that will be showing by summer. I don’t like to skip my exercises when I’m traveling so I’ve been taking a three-series exercise DVD with me that has 1) kicked my ass 2)been so intense I can not finish the workout. Both are really good things, because in the last two weeks those flabby spots have firmed right up. Muscle fatigue is a really, really good thing. Feel and relish the burn, ladies…
House Republicans think rape is negotiable. I think it’s safe to say all is lost…
We all have unique fashion styles, preferences, and shopping habits. This post is for women who want easy and inexpensive ways to makeover their clothing items or outfits so that they are more feminine or interesting. Some will buy a plain t-shirt and wear it as is. Others won’t even buy that t-shirt or they […]
I was looking around in an old recipe database this morning when I cane across this!
Blasian love in Africa!!
I was not prepared for the response to the first part of this post. I was not prepared to think of myself according to my skin shade rather than as simply a human being. I was not prepared for guilt for having written the article despite not being dark-skinned myself. But most of all, I was not prepared for the push back from non-dark skinned women.
I like my beer just as much as the next woman. I live in Philly after all, which a a major beer town. Hubby and I are home brewers and when traveling he and I always try what is local. Sometimes this works, some times not so much. Sorry Baltimore we tried your Natty Boh recently at a place in Fels Point. Nah Uh.
Parents, fathers of daughters in particular, YOU should be front and center in telling each of your daughters how beautiful, smart, precious, important she is to YOU! She should be able to sit on your lap safely, and hear those things that matter so much, first from YOU.
Honey, if a man you’re dating refuses to tell you that you are beautiful TO HIM, dump him, do not look back.
Sheryl Sandberg’s book “Lean In” will be released on March 11th and I’ve already pre-ordered a copy. Ms. Sandberg has also created a non-profit organization to help women ‘lean into’ their careers and goals.
Went to the exclusive, pro-only L.A. Makeup Show this passed weekend, and thanks to some of the best products on the market, I know wake up and look like this is the morning.
