Again it's that time of the year...

yeah, it is...time for holidays, family meals, making memories, staying indoors, reflecting on the current year and repositioning for the year ahead.  At least that is how it is for me!  Sitting here reading a few things (one to include TD Jakes' Relationship Bible), getting acquainted with my journal again, and thinking about where I am and how can I get to where I want to be from here is provoking many thoughts in me!  No doubt my life is changing even while I feel stagnant (just sometimes) and battle the up and down feelings of the excitment of impending mommyhood, confusion for not being a 100% on what I want to do with the rest of my life, and alone because I don't really feel like the friends I have had, some since forever, and I have a whole lot in common anymore.  Not to mention being pregnant and unwed has taken its toll on me here and there as well.  I pictured the ring before the baby carriage but due to untimely decision making things got real and life had something else planned.  So, my reality has become baby carriage no ring with complete contentment as I ponder about the horrible state of monogamy and the incline of divorce rates.  I no longer know if I EVER want to marry forreal!!  Oprah and Stedmond's lifestyle is looking like a go for me!  No contract, no vows, no big to do, no lifetime expectations, and no lies about for better or worse, sickness and health, rich or for poor til death we part!  I mean is anyone celebrating an anniversary?!?!  I'm sure the anniversaries of marriages will become just as extinct as dinosaurs by 2030!  Sad, a lover of Disney movies, namely Cinderella...I once became elated at the thought of marriage.  Things do change...

So, it's time to take inventory because I'm ever changing as well!!  What will my New Years post contain?!?  Besides the blessing of a beautiful, healthy, happy baby girl...what do I want REALLY?!? Time to refocus the life plan!

Although a little before my time I am a HUGE fan of the New Jack Swing era of music and this is a fave!!

CUFFn Season....

I love the holiday season but as unreal as it seems, I'm still getting used to maneuvering through CUFFn season as a single gal *Grrrrrr*

I'm not the girl that feels like life is over because she doesn't have a beau BUT it's holiday season!!  The smell of pine and peppermint are in the air, there is an abundance of time and money to be spent on those we love most;  Boys II Men, Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child, Temptations, and Nat King Cole are all over the holiday airwaves, holiday movies are coming out left & right...and who doesn't love Christmas day snuggling??  Breakfast in bed, movies, Christmas morning passion, switching gifts, more holiday passion (LOL), dinner with the fam, then more snuggling with family, fire, and lots of memory making!!

Winter is the season of love but for a self proclaimed hopeless romantic, it can be the season of "woe is me."  Moreso than Valentines, to me, the holiday season is all about romance.  Think about it you have the lights, fragrances, cold weather to keep you in, family meals, Christmas gifting is all about mystery and mystery has always been sexy! .....

Let me snap out of it because none of that is what the season is really about, well, not completely anyway but the holidays and romance are like frick and frack, they simply just go together!!! My Christmas list is rather short all I want is a happy, HEALTHY, baby girl in the new year but a new, tall, dark, handsome, unexpected, fresh, romance to crush on would be nice too :)

Sooo Santa baby jazz it up a bit this year or next
" Treat a girl who’s not your girlfriend like she’s the love of your life and she will wait for the title forever"
~Black Girls Are Easy~

Damn!  Have I been that girl?  Of course I have, and so have many of the women I know.  I would be willing to bet that all women have, at least onceWhat girl has not been the one saving up all her love coins for the jackpot that we THINK is the him that all BUT committs!  Seemingly it is all there; Chemistry, you go out, you meet everyone, you're seemingly the apple of his eye, he's investing time, affection, pillow talk, the works, it varies from situation to situation (I've lived this, my girlfriends have all at some point complained of this), EXCEPT when the topic of monogamy arises.  He's always not ready or unavailable for whatever reason.  Maybe it's distance (rolls eyes), or he's afraid of being hurt again (the okie doke), focusing on his career, can't provide for you the way he'd like to at the moment, blah blah need to proceed because we know the excuses proceed for miles!!  However, no matter what, WE, ol' loyal, find every reason in the book to be his ol' reliable...actually loving him and being committed to him while in actuality he is only NOT wifing you because he is waiting for whomever it is he actually wants and is actively seeking her while you love all over him or pitifully wait for the opportunity to. Yea, like Wendy Williams says, he is our boyfriend "in our heads", but you are only his "buddy" appropiate for every position but his ONE, his boo thing, his girl!  Crazy we find ourselves "in love" (the completely false version) with him and have never met his mama, the relationship talk is foreign territory, and despite our unconditional loyalty the reality is it is mostly physical, for the time being, or not what he wants at all.

With all of that said...WHY is it that we women continue to make excuses to rationalize our very illogical choices to stay in his corner??  Because like the quote above is's all for the title, the championship ring, the fantasy (picket fence, family portraits, kids, dog, and family vacays).  Don't get me wrong, he may want that BUT not with you... BUT yet you think  IF you could just get him to this or that, or if YOU could just DO this or that, say this or'll be his top shelf choice.  How many times has that formula failed???  It always does!  I'ts sickening...what makes him so worthy/!?!?  And it's even more horrible when you recognize the crazy pattern in your own life in different degrees at different times but you notice it, it's there  Yea, I'm kinda guilty as I type this and have been in my past- hence the use of the word WE throughout the post, but in my Patti voice "its a newww day!!"


This about sums it up...

Now, that is just NASTY!

Obviously I watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta as seen from previous posts, but this past Sunday's episode had me warped up in a big ol' mess of grossness, when at Kandi's birthday party, Phaedra's gift, the stripper RiDICKalous commenced to PLEASURE HIMSELF ORALLY while performing!  Phaedra has mentioned this guy before, last season actually,but seeing that it was the truth surprised the hell out of me.  I was with Mama Kandi...that was some, in her words, "BULLSH*T!!!!  WHO WANTS TO SEE THAT?!?!  Where do they do that at?  HOW DID HE DISCOVER HE COULD DO THAT?!?!  Further, why was Peter so obviously engaged by the stripper's performance!?!?  Yea, I caught that and putting that together with the location, the A, I think Cynthia may wanna investigate that foolishness...Peter seemed just as engaged as Lawrence *sideeye*

Anywho, just in case you DID not catch RiDICKalous and his "talents"  here is the clip....

Just GROSS!!

I'm Rich BITCH!

LMAO...okay so because of all the loose ends from last season, I was looking forward to the premier of the Real Housewives of Atlanta especially to see what was going on with NeNe...Ms. Drama herself!  Sure enough NeNe is bringing the drama already in episode ONE!!  LMAO at this argument between NeNe and Sheree...NeNe has gotten herself some very new SUPPOSEDLY very long money and felt the need to let Sheree know when confronted by Sheree about a failed business venture screaming at Sheree "I'm rich bitch".  She then went on to say how much her veneers cost, how Celebrity Apprentice put her on financially and that she is RICH and doesn't need to side swipe the likes of Sheree for business.  THIS WAS JUST A MESS!!!  I pause at believing that Celebrity Apprentice has put NeNe on the status of rich, but Donald Trump can now expect an influx of celebrities to be calling him to get on Celebrity Apprentice because it seems like every episode NeNe is going to be talking about her new found RICHNESS from Celebrity Apprentice.  Safe to say she is feeling herself!  Loved the argument!  So juvenile, messy, yet ENTERTAINING!

Winning??? Yeah, I think so...

They say hoes be winnin' but Diddy be winnin' too!  The man is a master at marketing any and everything, BUT these days Twitter is taking care of that for him!  I am so TIRED of tweets and twitpics of Peach Ciroc!  People tweet about this stuff like they have some personal stake in the company or avenue for a come up if the world knows they have tried or are about to go bottoms up on a bottle of the new Peach Ciroc.  Maybe it's the social networking evolution, but really is, of all things, liquor that important?  And must I know where you got it, how much it costs. and what you're drinking it with!?!? It has gone way far...last weekend was Howard University's homecoming and of course the whole weekend Ciroc was just as much as a topic as the homecoming itself!!  So yea, hoes move over...DIDDY BE WINNIN' & I'm not mad him!  I would appreciate the free press too, while STACKIN$$$$

Anyone else over this?!?!

So, I don't follow all the sports but hell if I don't look forward to NBA season every year!  I'm so over this lockout I could scream and choke an owner and a player!!  End this already!! The negotiations have gone on too long and NOBODY is winning in this production...which is exactly what they are turning this into, a full on dramatc PRODUCTION.  Not to mention the thousands,  maybe millions of people whose jobs depend on there being an NBA season every year.  The owners and players association need to get it together and think about the fans!!  I'm stuck looking at the EVER SO DRY Basketball Wives of LA, LaLa's Full Court Life, and the Kardashians to get my NBA fix lmao!!  *GRRRRRRRRRR* Stop the BS and give us a season...At this rate, we, the fans, can forget there being an All Star Weekend!  Winter just will not be right!

Do you love your occupation?!!?

I was posed the question last night of what is my dream job and am I doing it.  Well, to answer the question, if I could create my dream job OR stop procrastinating in my creation of it, I would own a personal shopping and image consulting mini empire!  That is a far far cry from the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice I earned at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, but as you grow you learn things including things about yourself.  Additionally, I have always wanted to run a nonprofit organization dedicated to the steady progression of young girls, preferable minority girls.  I have started the VERY basic ground work on these projects, but procrastination has hindered my own progression.  So disappointed in myself!!  Not to mention that everyday we wakeup not loving the life we live by living the life we'd love is a waste!!  The world wants what each of us has to give and inner passions are for a divine reason!  Are you living your dream?  What changes could you make to live the life you love and contribute to the world by way of your dreams and deepest passions?  I want anyone who reads this to take a second to think about the current quality of the life you live as it relates to your personal satisfaction and it's contribution to your innermost passions!! Are you on fire for your current endeavors and current occupation!?!? If not refocus and do what makes you happy...God has already figured out the rest!

XQ Cuticle Remy!!

Hair review!!!  I promised myself I would  NEVER turn into one of those beauty bloggers/vloggers, but honestly, it is where I am right now and have been for awhile so to not blog about it, and to not offer my OPINION would not be right!!!  So normally, when I get a weave with beauty supply store, non-virgin hair, I use the Remy Saga hair GOLD!!  However, everytime I would go to buy the Saga, the packaging of the XQ Cuticle Remy always caught my eye and now, I'm going to try it!!  There is nothing wrong with the Remy Saga hair, in fact, I LOVE IT, but I want to switch up the weather some and try something different.  I have a scheduled install next Thursday so I will be posting pictures and maybe a video then of my first impressions and the new style.  I am very excited about the style because I'm doing something else different this time regarding the curling of the hair!!!  **STAY TUNED**

Regal, Powerful, Feminine...African American Woman CEOs*

As a budding entrepreneur, thanks to the many projects I have going on right now, I love giving props to my fellow young black women making power moves and establishing powerful relationships.  I'm excited for African Americans as a whole for the presence we are making in the business world!!  HOWEVER, THIS POST is all about the ladies...those black women running corporations, signing checks, and calling shots!!  I WANT TO BE LIKE THEM!!

This is Ursula Burns.  She is the FIRST black, female CEO of a Fortune 500 company!  She is running Xerox!!  Hailing from New York like most people everywhere, she started at the bottom as an intern in the 80s!! 

Sheila Johnson!  If you watch BET then you should know who she is..the ex-wife of former BET owner Robert "Bob" Johnson.  Anywho, Sheila has her own accolades to be proud of she is the Owner, President of, and governor of the WNBA's Washington Mystics 2.) has a stake of ownership also in the Washington Wizards and Capitals, 3.) and is the CEO of Salamander Hospitality, a company that runs a slew of resorts across the Southeastern part of the country!

Cathy Hughes!! She is the owner of both Radio One and TV One!  If you're from the DMV, you listen to a few of her stations all the time and who doesn't love "Unsung" on TV One every Monday night...Cathy Hughes is a media force!

Am I the only one super late with this?!?!? I was at the mall last weekend and BOOM there was a Sephora inside JCPenney!! I went in to check it out, but otherwise I absolutely loathe's good for Bridal Registries, but other than that I find the store super boring!!! I guess I wasn't the only one because the Sephora seems to really brighten the vibe inside the department store. Of course some are smaller than other Sephoras, but I love Sephora for their roll on fragrances, beauty incentives when you purchase stuff, extensive fragrance collection, urban decay, and skin care items!!! I will take a Sephora whereever I can find one-Even JCPenney!! Apparently this has been in the works since earlier this year, and I'm the late one!!! Hey...can't argue with accessibility!

Sam Edelman Adena Flats!!

I LOVE these Sam Edelman flats!! They also come in a pinky silver...aren't they unique!?!? Cute way to jazz up flats, which because I'm tall, I am a fan of moreso than heels alot of times....CAUTE!!!!!

I LOVE MAKEUP!!! Within the last year and a half my love has become borderline OBSESSION!! Soooo, I'm going to become a certified makeup artist!! No longer satisfied with the little looks I come up with playing around, I really want to learn the tricks of the trade, go on to learn airbrushing, and even special effects artistry!! I have fun with makeup and there is So much to learn..not to mention it's an industry all its own!! From the hair industry, to entertainment industry, or everyday precious moments in life like; proms, weddings, photoshoots, etc.. In all of those areas makeup, whether minimal or full face and theatrical becomes necessary!! So of course it will be my new side thing that I can do to make extra cash and HAVE FUN at the same time!!! I have decided to start makeup training in September. The classes will last 6 weeks, 3 nights. So, it'll be over before I get tired of it or feel like I can't handle it with my full time job and being PREGNANT!!!

"UNITED" States of America...The James Anderson Case

So, I have been trying to make an effort to stay up on National news. In my doing so, I came across the most saddening story about a man, James Anderson. As the doll that can cover it all, I will certainly be offering an opinion about this story. For those of you that are not familiar with the James Anderson story, here is an excerpt about the story from CNN's website:

"Jackson, Mississippi (CNN) -- On a recent Sunday morning just before dawn, two carloads of white teenagers drove to Jackson, Mississippi, on what the county district attorney says was a mission of hate: to find and hurt a black person. In a parking lot on the western side of town they found their victim. James Craig Anderson, a 49-year-old auto plant worker, was standing in a parking lot, near his car. The teens allegedly beat Anderson repeatedly, yelled racial epithets, including "White Power!" according to witnesses. Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith says a group of the teens then climbed into their large Ford F250 green pickup truck, floored the gas, and drove the truck right over Anderson, killing him instantly. "

I can imagine that, like myself, most people have been FLABBERGASTED by this story!! For a young African American woman it's; frustrating, infuriating, astonishing, hurtful, and a REMINDER!!! America refuses to part with her first, truest, longest lasting romance with RACISM!! Racism is ever present and abound...the oppression, discrimination, prejudice against people of color, namely African American people will never be something we REMEMBER. We did not need to know this story to remind us of this fact, just look at the hard time that the President of the Nation is getting and we all know why its that way! Oh and remember the Jena 6 in Jena, Louisiana? Yea, that was less than 10 years ago..forgot about that? I posted about that too!

While, the death of James Anderson and the means by which he died should really not be a surprise to people, it is because of where we are as a country, but honestly it should not be because of the same reason. Mississippi especially, has teetered tottered with it's Jim Crow past since the day of Reconstruction. Doubt me? The state did not adopt the 13th Amendment UNTIL 1995!!!! HOWEVER, with ALL OF THAT, taken into account; the nerve, the gull, the motivation, the will of someone to act the way those teenagers did that night is ASTONISHING, APPALLING, SHOCKING, HATEFUL, MORBID TO say the LEAST!!

I will be glued to the media to see just how the state of Mississippi, who has declared this a racial, hate crime already, will handle this case and the offenders.

They should be made example of in every way possible, National examples.

Let this incident remind us that to know one's history and to progress as a unit and a country is to also take on the responsibility to personally rectify it by any means necessary. It is PRE-Election year, remember the voting rights act was not passed until 1965, schools were not desegregated until 1954, it took 232 years approximately to get our first President of color, the President was just publicly called a "Tar baby", and everyday subtle gestures of racism are among us all. These were not old people that killed James Anderson. They did not burn crosses and sport white robes and masks. These were simply teenagers with evil intentions that had fatal the America we live in NOW! It was not that long ago that the parents, grandparents, and great grandparents of these children hosed down blacks, refused service to blacks, and owned slaves! Like folk tales, and recipes, ideas of racism and evil are passed down through generations. WE, AMERICANS, have to KNOW better to do better for the common good. My prayers are extended to both the family of James Anderson as well as his soul, and the families of those teenagers.

Will Mississippi adequately seek justice?

This is the shirt I ordered from Endeavor DC! Follow them on twitter at @ShopNDVR...they have male and female stuff!

Will true beauty please stand up?!?!

Yesterday, while catching up on the news, I ended up watching Showbiz Tonight to get my entertainment news fix, and they were talking about this t-shirt. You may not recognize the quote on the shirt, but Supermodel Kate Moss was quoted in 2009 as saying " Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." We all know the fashion industry is plagued with malnutritioned, unhealthy, skinny women (and men), so for Kate Moss it made sense for her to say that because in her world, the skinnier you are the, the more paychecks you receive. What frustrated me about this shirt is the same thing that would probably frustrate any sane person. In this picture, A CHILD IS WEARING THE QUOTE ON A T-SHIRT!!! Apparently some wise person affiliated with zazzle decided to market the quote on t-shirts in lieu of promoting positive, universal images of beauty. The thinking process behind marketing such a quote is; skinny is better, the skinnier the better, skinny is more important than health, etc. I am an advocate for recognizing someone, especially women, for their true displays of beauty; the kind way they treat someone, the confidence they portray no matter their size, their intellect, and choosing to embrace who they are healthily, despite society's emphasis on the unrealistically, skinny woman being the beautiful one as she hides behind the shame and difficulties of poor self image, eating disorders, psychological disorders....the beauty she is put on display to portray is not what they or their insides feel. It is unhealthy, unsafe, and sometimes deadly! Skinny is not better...healthy, no matter the size of the person is paramount and this quote does not convey that! Women come in all sizes, I, myself am a size 10 and would look foolish in a size 5!

Per news reports, zazzle decided to pull the shirt from the site out of good judgment, if you ask me! Further, I do not think I need to say again that advertising the shirt with a little girl wearing it was in severely poor taste!

I think there is enough in the mainstream that women battle against in respect to beauty, weight, self image!

I find inspiration sometimes is in the weirdest areas. However, nothing inspires me more than another young, Black woman doing well for herself. I love to support my fellow young ladies because 1.) there is a lack of unity among us, and 2.) it really does light a fire under me to 86 procastination and DO SOMETHING worthy, that makes me happy, and feels a void and make others happy. Now more than ever, because I am expecting, I have been motivated to sort of "'do my own thing". I always said I wanted to be a stay at home mother, but my pregnancy was a surprise, and I am not quite at the point where I can hand in my resignation letter and do that yet. You better believe the confirmation of my conception put me on the fast track to establishing the companies I have always dreamed of establishing, putting in place financial matters for the future of my unborn, and just really putting the presses on myself to get things done. Anywho, in my post yesterday I mentioned Keyshia Dior's (the video model) lipstick line. I love this girl's hustle!! She released a video yesterday, mini documentary, about her rise to success and it inspired me all the can find the video on her website at but here it is below

I think she is great! Loved her story!

Wig? Yea, Imma try one!

I have never worn a wig because normally they repulse me and I don't have Beyonce or Wendy Williams' budget to get one I would actually love. That is until I ran into this short baby the "mommy wig" on youtube! I had to have it! Colouredbeautiful made it look sooo good and it reminded me of a haircut I had in 2008! So I ordered it from hair stop & shop. Yea, Imma rock this soon with a post, my opinion on it, and pictures to boot! Stay tuned!

Some new faves....

Hey yall!!! Funny my url is opinionofaglamchik.blogspot and I have not offered an opinion on anything even remotely glam or unglam lately. Forgive me! If you follow my other blog, then you know I am JUST starting to get my energy back, I just updated that one and figured since I'm logged in I will update this one by letting you all in on some new and not so new faves of mine....leggooooooooo

Well, I have become the self proclaimed youtube junkie this summer for all things girly, prissy, and glam!! I have found two new favorite youtubers, and I think they are friends, but their videos are awesome!! The first one is AllThingsFabulous101 and the other is SongbirdDiva4life...they both hail from up north, New York to be exact and have the best reviews on everything from hair, makeup, clothes, wardrobe necessities, giveaways...the works*** I have to say my favorite of the two is Miss Asia of All things fabulous 101 though; her reviews are among the most thorough on "the tube" lol!

Some other new favorites of mine are; NYX makeup products (cheap & great quality). I found out about NYX through All Things Fabulous' videos. I may be late with that one, but I love the quality and they are so economical. Further, in my quest to STOP paying MAC cosmetics $30 a pop for foundation, I have found a drugstore substitute that I probably love more...the Maybeline Fit Me Foundation. I swear by it these days! Also, ummm I have not tried her lipsticks yet, but I am so fascinated by the Keyshia Dior lipstick line because I'm a colour whore and her line has NO shortage of pigments...

Some new brands that I am probably going to fall in love with but are not as popular yet, are Endeavor DC a new, local clothing line in the DC area. You can follow Endeavor DC at @ShopNDVR on Twitter and view their designs at!! Gotta support the local entrepreneurs.

Also, I have noticed that so many new accessory lines have come out...and last night, I came across one I'd never heard of on the bigcartel website called Rachel Stewart Jewelry. I love er designs...find her at

So tell me why, not even 10 hours after arriving, somebody broke into my rental car and stole ALL of my ish INCLUDING my laptop!!!!!!!!!! I HAVE NO WORDS!!! I mean if I could express the way I feel maybe I'd say i'm blown, mad, sad, angry, disappointed..but none of those seem adequate!!! My laptop had all of my college memories on it, pics pics pics and more pics including intimate ones with me and the ex boo! I'm DONE! Of course I filed a police report but we already know I'm not getting the ish back. Its a complete lost...I feel thorougly violated!! My laptop was my life and I had some badd ish in that suitcase, expensive perfume, makeup galore, all my accessories, shoes I haven't worn yet, clothes with tags still on them!!!! UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why do people steal??!?!? I have never stolen so is this karma for something? God will deal with them. This is the worst!!

Put on for my city! DMV!!

As you can see, I'm PUMPED for the NBA finals this year! My pick for finals would be OKC so KD can rep for the home front and Miami, cause I want to see Lebron and Wade get that ring together!

The Night Class....a short film

A very good friend of mine recently entered into the 48 hour film festival in D.C with some of his co-workers. In the festival, you're given a genre, a prop, a tag line, a character and you have to male a film within 48 hours. Their genre was horror, character was Tompkins, prop was a pencil.....I enjoyed the short film, considering they only had 48 hours! I hope you do too. Feel free to like the video on youtube! *xoxox*

No place like happines.............

I am slowly dying, dying, dying...............that's exactly how I feel everyday when I wake up for work, realize what's needed to do for work. I think it's safe to say that if there is any feeling that is more hateful than hate itself, I feel that for my occupation!!! Before you call me, an ungrateful brat, hear me out! I'm more than grateful for employment and God knows I appreciate my paycheck *bills bills bills* but honestly every waking, breathing, energetic moment I have is spent working!!!!! Hence, the reason why I have been awol on the blogging front. I can't catch a break!

Anywho, in between appointmentS, typing reports, scheduling appointments, and correcting deficiencies in my cases, I have managed to fail my first semester classes at Georgetown! Yep, the worst thing that could happen to me right now, happened. I failed my classes when stuck between a rock and a hard place having to decide between school and work....of course my livelihood won that beef.

With all the not sleeping, relaxing, and lack of peace of mind that is running amuck in my life, I have decided I need to be the one signing the checks, determining my own fate, and creating jobs. I need to start my own brand. So, yes, with that said I have a few projects in the works. Inspired now more than ever before, I realize that I need to go after my dreams to love the life I am living instead of living. UGGGHHGHHG!!!!!!! Everytime I think about work I could snatch out my entire weave and scream to the top of my lungs...What will that prove though???

You better bet that when I leave this job i'm going to the most luxurious, remote spa retreat I can find to renew my mind....I need some intense mind reconditioning and a bottle of patron because THIS CAN'T BE LIFE!!!!

UGHH!!!!!!! I SHALL BLOG AGAIN SOMETIME SOON IN LIFE IN BETWEEN FINDING ADEQUATE TIME FOR SLEEP, BREATHING AND EATING!! I have just abandoned by dear prissy little blog :( This abandonment is not by choice though between working full time, attending school full time, tryin to start a business.....I have to remember to even sleep on a daily basis!!! I shall petition to give us more hours in the day! I just don't have enough! Anyway, I hope all is well with you, yours, and your world! Find something to be happy about everyday. I have to even tell myself this, because things could be different. I could be unemployed, not have gotten accepted into school, and therefore not even having the means to even think about starting my own thing. THANK GOD FOR OPPORTUNITY!!! I shall not complain but be GRATEFUL!!! Again, I hope everyone is well, healthy, happy, and loving the life they are living!!!!!!!

Gonna be SINGLE for Vday??

Being single for Valentines Day is like living a horror movie when you don't have a Valentine, it seems. While, that's not how I feel, I certainly am going through "lovers withdrawl" realizing that this is the first time in 5 years, I won't be showered with romance on Valentines Day...So, rather then sulk and reminisce on all the beautiful, over the top, romantic Valentines Days I have had in recent years, I'm gonna reinvent the day for ME!! OTHER SINGLE GIRLS SHOULD FEEL FREE TO DO THE SAME!1. Get wasted or just a little tipsy turvy with one of your single girlfriends OR single guy friends and go SPEED DATING for the fun of it! I've never been but i'm seriously considering this, sounds fun!

2. SPA DAY!!! This you can do alone or with a more than one single friend? Have a SPA day and get a nice hotel for the night and have a sleepover. Why not spice it up with a "TOY" party, maybe some pole dancing...may be able to use the toys and moves on Vday next year.

3. Got a crush? That's less than 200 miles away? *LOL*cheap plug* maybe flip the script, go out on the limb, and have a platonic night out on the town with him. After some drinks, laughs, may muster up the courage to tell how you feel ANNNND THUS, maybe have vday on lock for next year.

4. Go out to dinner anyway!! Hit up a nice restaurant, avoid romantic places like the Melting Pot, CoCo Sala, Ruth's Chris, Mortons, etc, boooooo to couples everywhere!! Have fun...go with a SEXY male friend to see No Strings Attached. I hear its good!

5. Go OUT! PARTY! That's a great part about being single. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER, WHENEVER, HOWEVER YOU WANT!!!!!!!!! Dare to wear RED in as sexy a fashion as possible, slip on the sexiest stilleto, get dolled up, party and flirt your heart out for Vday!!!!!!!!!!!!

Finding Myself....

"& honestly, at 23, I would probably love my work more than I did she. So we, ain't we, it's me and, her, cus what she prefers over me, is work. & that's where we differ, I have to give her free time even if it hurts. So breathe, mami it's deserved. You've been put on this earth to be all you can be like the reserves. And me, my time in the army is served. So, I have to allow her. her time to serve. The time is now for her, in time she'll mature....and to ask her now, it ain't fair"
BUT he'll GAIN one instead of losing one.
I'm extremely happy and proud of myself and the young lady Ive become; 23, gainfully employed, childless, crazy manless (actually just manless lol), law abiding, community serving citizen conquering her dreams!! That verse from "Lost One" reminds me of myself, right now, for the world. I'm doing me successfully with not much room for a "him" but, with that, my "ME" project is successfully underway and when the time is right, he'll be one PROUD King, Blessed among men.
I'm the happiest I've been in the last 3 years and I'm happier by the day because I own my happiness, my peace, my smile, and my dreams...BECOMING ALL I CAN BE LIKE THE RESERVES!! It's been somewhat of a struggle getting here, but the joy is knowing those stories have ended and now I'm single-handedly writing this bestseller of ME, NOW! We question, life's trials and we make our plans not knowing what lies on the other side if those plans just happen to not come into fruition Well, mine fell through, and i'm happy to say my smile is bigger, my days are more positive, my circle is more supportive, and my short & long term goals are underway!!!!!
YAY ME!!!!!
Everything I am now is just a snippet of the well rounded woman I really hope to be one day adding to that Legal Professional, Entrepreneur, Wife, Mom, and Friend! I'm realizing dreams by the day!! ALL of what I AM NOW is what I have always wanted to be.
In hindsight, I wouldn't have it any other way....I'm enjoying being 23!!!!!!!!

Lady in the streetz freak in the sheetz..or just ALL lady??

Sooo in my conversations with my male friends i'm finding that most of them, especially the wifed up ones are well, i'm gonna say EROTICALLY DEPRIVED lol for lack of better terms. Simply put, their women aren't bringin' the freak and according to them that's the norm among women in relationships, married and not. It fizzles out once its "official"

BUT as a woman, a young woman, with a healthy (unfortunately deprived) appetite for NO holds barred passion I find this hard to believe because tsn't half the excitement GETTING HIM EXCITED, READY.....HARD, especially YOUR man, by any feasible, safe means?!?

It's no secret that most serious relationships especially marriages end because of money AND...SEX!!!!!!! Now, you probably can't avoid the money issues BUT sex on the other hand, is avoidable, avoidable....AVOIDABLE at ALL costs, I mean, if for nothing else as a distraction from ya other issues!

I mean they were complaining about seemingly trivial sh*t from; the lack of lingerie, costumes, role playing, oral sex, swallowing, variety in positions, spontaneity....LADIES what's good?

Isn't PART of the satisfaction knowing that when he leaves, comes up from that nap, or finishes inhaling that post passion meal you've pulled all the stops, and that you're not a SMUT but all he needs sexually???? We're talkin' about your man not your "friend".

What's the disconnect?? Do men want it too much? Are they asking too much (in your experience)? The answer is YES to that question for the guy wanting the 3some....LOL that's my personal choice.

But to my ladies I'm asking are you guilty of slacking on the lovin'??? Giving the clean-up woman an IN to your relationship?? AND fellas my question is what's YOUR role? What, if any, is your experience with fizzled out lovin' in a relationship???

Lyrical Lady Legends

To forget about Foxy would be horrific. She has performed alongside my favorite rapper, JIGGA, on many hits!!! This is definitely one of my faves. Her rap flow was raw, hard yet sexy! We should've got more music from her!

Lyrical Lady Legends...My FAVE!

"i'm not the one to sleep with, eat quick. Wanna cheap chik?
Better go down to freaknik."

Lyrical Lady Legends...

I just felt like posting my favorite videos by female emcees this weekend! WHO YOU CALLIN' A BITCH?!?!?!?

& she grows....

Sooo let me start by apologizing to my followers because i'm the absolute worst blogger on the block right now...with like little to no updates! NOT to mention it's black history month. CHOCOLATE ***kisses*** to all my fellow beautiful, BOLD, regal, black folk in the blogosphere!!!

So, I feel like I owe ya some reading material. Therefore, I'm putting myself on a 5 day writing challenge. HEY, i'm taking baby steps now please bare with me lovies! I've missed reading you alls blogs and commenting on them regularly too.

I'm experiencing alot of change right now inwardly and outwardly and I'M falling in love with the young woman that is making great strides for the woman to be....the maturation of ME!!! Along the way I've realized I have outgrown somethings.

Some people, things, places, HELL some of my jeans for that matter just don't rock to well with me anymore. I've outgrown them like puberty, grade school, 18 & up clubs, relationship games, wasted weekends etc, etc, goes on but....

It's a pretty known fact that I don't like goodbyes...i like to hold on to things moreso people FOREVER but lately I've noticed I done outgrown that too!!!!!

This must me the dolo chapter of the *Chronicles of Tora* the part when everything else fades to black and I focus on me; my happiness, my goals, my attitude, my growth, and MY potential!

MORE THAN EVER, i'm enjoying the beat of my own drum and it feels good, like i've arrived. Don't need no permission, second opinions...i'm having fun discovering me but I guess that's where i'm supposed to be at baggage, holds, just living free....I'm living for positive memories

It's obvious we like reading, I mean we write, we're bloggers. It's also obvious we enjoy readiing/writing some of the same things because we follow each other so why not start a book club? I'm 23, and it's hard to find a book club that is composed of women in their twenties so I want to start one with my blog family. Some of my favorite authors are Hill Harper, Omar Tyree, E. Lynn Harris, and really the list could go on and on across genres. I've thought about this for sometime and would like some feedback.
Is anyone interested????
So let the having NO life chapter begin! Imma do this, this and work! How Imma do this, I haven't the slightest but I must further my education, increase my skillset, and well, I need to keep my job!!!

My first night of classes at Georgetown University is this coming Thursday. Class from 6:15pm to 9:50pm will be an interesting feat to accomplish after working full time during the day, but I only have to tough it out til December and I'm hoping to land a new job between now & then.

Anywho, even though intimidated I'm excited! This has to work out, people do it all the time. People raise families, work full time, go to school, participate in church functions, shuttle their kids to and from their activities. I just need to master the art of time management FAST! 1 YEAR, THAT'S ALL IT'LL BE IS ONE YEAR!!!
