Being Mary Jane – Season 4 Episode 2 Review

So…I’m back with reviews.  I missed episode one’s review and I’m just going to give you a brief summation before we get into episode 2. Episode 1: MJ and Kara are in NYC and we’ve just BREEZED over the situation with Niecey but there’s a settlement coming and MJ was fired for advocating for Niecey.  MJ has a new job and a new rival/mentor.  She is trying to find her husband …still…and hired a matchmaker that QUIT her.  She did come across a random British man though who she’ll do MJ fuckshit with of course. Episode 2: The episode opens with MJ in her feelings and getting it in with...

A Bulletproof Way to Keep Your Holidays Popping

This post was sponsored by Bulletproof Coffee.  All opinions are 100% mine. So we all know that the holidays are my favorite time of the year but they wear me all the way out.  To be able to get to the holidays, vacation, seeing my family and friends, and good food, I have to put up with all the things in the world that I hate. Such as: The Cold The Cold The Cold And Daylights Savings Time. Because we know I’m already a sickling (although I pretend I’m just reguhlah degulah) these hated things have such a crazy effect on me.  They make me DEAD TIRED!!! So follow the bouncing ball…....

Insecure as F**k – Insecure Episode 1

So, the episode starts off with Issa at her job trying her best to present to some kids.  They hit her with the typical we don’t care about school reactions.  They come at her with “Why you talk like a white girl” …this that moment when you realize you shouldn’t cuss kids out… #JesusWorkingOnMe.  Then another girl asks “What’s wrong with your hair…my cousin can put some tracks in it”.  They even come at her asking her if she’s single and saying men don’t want to deal with black women!   Like why in the first 2 minute did these chirren read my educated, single ass hell,  natural hair having black life out...

Fall is a Gateway Drug

I see all of y’all out here being disrespectful.  A friend told me yesterday “I really enjoyed wearing tights and boots today ” I almost hung up on her because her friendship was not what God wanted for my life on that moment.  But Beyonce taught me benevolence so I gave her a chance to explain. She said well she’s ok with a certain range of temperatures. So i said cool BUT FALL IS A GATEWAY DRUG…to WINTER!  It’s so shady it has two names…a street name, Fall, and a legal name, Autumn This is how they lure you in. They make you feel like it’s so cute to wear...

I Quit Online Dating

I was burnt completely out of online dating.  So, I quit online dating! Will it be forever? Nope.  Mostly it was just for the month of August.  I deleted all the apps from my phone: Tinder, Bumble, PoF, and OKCupid.  I feel like SoulSwype was deleted before the mass deletion but anyway.  I just needed to get away from it because it was driving me crazy. You see, I’m at a weird place where I want to meet people and go out on dates but I don’t go out that much for several reasons.  I typically also don’t meet a lot of men when I’m out.  So Online dating is...

Attending The Naturalista Hair Show 2016

Last year, I won tickets to go to the Naturalista Hair show.  This year (Sept 18), I’ll be attending AGAIN as a blogger for the show.  Look at God! Y’all don’t know how I’ve been looking forward to getting back to this show since the one last year.  I’m excited about all it has to offer: Panels, Vendors (the deals are usually CRAZY), Hands on Classes, Workshops, Pampering, and more! Last year, I went with my friend Erika and we had a great time.  We stayed most of the day and bought so much great stuff and met some cool people. This year’s show will be just as epic and...

Black Women Win Rio Olympics 2016 #BlackGirlMagic

Now that Olympics 2016 in Rio are over…we can really sit back and revel at all the Black Girl Magic that occurred.  We took so many medals that if Black Women had out own delegation I’m sure we’d be #1.  I didn’t do any calculations to prove this but DON’T QUESTION MY EXCITEMENT!  We’d be up there at the top for sure!! There was just something about watching all of that history.  Black women were winning medals for their respective countries that had never been won by ANYONE, that had never been won by black women, that had never been won two times in a row, in events that had...

“Do You Love Him” – The Countess Vaughn Tragedy

2016 has been a hell of a year.  I mean…just musically…we’ve gotten some Amazing albums.  Frank Ocean has even put out something that isn’t blank.  Do you HEAR ME…Frank Ocean sung on tracks belonging to himself and let us hear them too…in this the year 2016 of our Lord. However, there had to be things to counter the greatness.  First Mama Dee released a song and video and you know I thought that would be the worst thing I heard and saw, musically, this year.  I was proven wrong. Countess Vaughn formerly of Moesha and The Parkers fame…released a song and video.  You’re thinking…wait…Countess can blow…like SHE HAS THE RANGE....
