Simone Manuel and Simone Biles are #BlackGirlMagic – Fearce Friday

Simone Biles.  Simone Manuel.  Olympians.  History Makers.  Underdogs.  Black Girl Magic.  Champions!  If you are watching the Olympics, you are likely just as excited as I am this Friday.  Last night I shed tears of joy as I watched Simone Manuel swim for the gold.  My sister and I had been commenting all week on how folks were sleeping on Simone Manuel.  They only talked about Michael Phelps when it came to swimming.  Phelps is a dolphin in human form and I get HYPE every time he swims but something was OFF about the Simone Manuel reporting. Time came for Simone’s race and my sister and I were ready!  Then...

Get Hydrated with Groupon

This post was sponsored by Groupon.  All opinions are 100% mine   So, the summer is coming to a close soon and I’m really unable to deal.  Just…it does not stay long enough for me.  I love the heat and the ability to leave my house and not have to put on a billion layers just to STILL be cold.  However, with the heat comes the thirst.  It’s hot and steamy in the DMV area.  To add to this, I need to get back on my weight loss kick.  My doctor finally OFFICIALLY cleared me to work out. Working out in this heat has been a combination of things.  Mainly…I walk...

Lemonade Lyrics that make me want to stay SINGLE

There have been countless think pieces on Lemonade in the last 3 weeks.  I swear this is why folks have Beyonce classes in college because I swear yall be STUDYING BEYONCE.  Hell…I be studying Beyonce (and a few other artists) and y’all know I hate studying.  But when folks give you a damn good piece of material to study…you study that ish!  And the Lemonade Lyrics really had me like…that’s that good material. Anyway…I’ve been doing a lot of talking and thinking about relationships lately and at this point…I feel like Birdman Beyonce certainly did not help with some of the lyrics on Lemonade.  Sometimes I be so caught up...

Spinach Bacon Quiche

Check out the video for the spinach bacon quiche. It was adapted from this recipe: Original Recipe The differences are : 1. I use 5 eggs (this and number 2 help my crust from overflowing) 2.

10,000 Calorie Challenge

There is this challenge going around and it’s been going around for it seems like FOREVER but I’m just now getting hip to it.  It’s called the 10,000 calorie challenge.  In this challenge, you try to eat 10,000 calories in the day.  Yup 10,000 whole calories in one day.  I’ve watched a couple of the youtube videos chronicling this and it’s interesting to see what some people think will get them to 10k. The first 10,000 calorie challenge that I saw was of the family vloggers, The Lavigne Life.  My sister and I instantly said “oh they went about this ALL WRONG” Here’s their video: Instantly, we knew that we...
