Ummm, What happened to music?

Wait I gotta turn on Caps Lock for this...










WHeww, had to get that out. OK. I'm not mad at Trey Songz yet, but if he keeps this up I will be done with him! He better be glad he looks cute in that picture. Don't slip again Trey.

Lauren had some Hills to climb

Apollo '87

Almost got boo'd off the stage : (

She definitely wasn't a child prodigy like MJ.

But we all know she came up in the world!

Damn I miss the Fugees

As a matter of fact... I miss Lauren Hill

Miseducation is definitely on my top 10 album list of MY lifetime... Still listen to it! Track #14. Double thumbs up!

Heard she went kinda crazy. Probably not completely true, but I think she may be struggling with a few issues. We all have our struggles tho...

You be the judge. Crazy or Cool. Ima go ahead and say she FELL OFF too soon in the game. Some ppl say her new look is funky, cool, and different. I disagree. The look is a little messy and so is her voice. I hate to say this about the girl though. I would still attend I concert/event if I heard she was gonna be there. STILL a fan.

Lauren from me 2 u. "If Whitney can come back, so can you!"

All I'm asking for....

All I'm asking for is a few good men for me to pick and choose from. SERIOUSLY....

Do you have kids-> I don't wanna deal with it.
Being honest, I will date men with kids (SMH... I already have), but I would like to find a good, wholesome guy without kids! (not saying that I never have) Hopefully one day, I'll find a man that I can START a family with...not finish one. But for now, I'm a young FREE girl, and I'd like a FREE guy.

Do you have a job-> No, selling drugs is not a job.
I understand, working for the MAN is not desirable in all cases, but it is honorable and LEGAL. If you dont wanna work for anyone, HEY, take the steps to own your own business. Nothing worth having comes easy. Can't say I've never been associated with a 'street pharmacist' though! SHHhhhhh ; O

Do you have ambition-> Which leads me to my next question....

Can you count your hobbies and interests on 1 hand-> Smoking, drinking and going to the club are not enough to satisfy you for life. At least not with me on you arm! SERIOUSLY.
Actually, it would be good to find a guy who didn't smoke. More of my BIG dreams. GEEZ LOUISE, haven't they produced enough TRUTH ads for you to get it? No offense to my followers that smoke.... I know its a tough habbit to kick, but think about ; )
Back to interests... have some dreams, and make them come true. Travel the world. Experience things ouside the scope of your culture! Whatever it is, keep your life interesting... cause I'll fall asleep on you!

Are you clean-> I understand guys are guys, and I DO want a MAN!
However, showers are necessary. AND, your house/apartment should not look like a pigstie or smell like ass warmed up!

Can you hold conversation-> I'm a little quite myself, so a talker is good for me.
Even if you aren't super talkative, you should be able to hold a convo with me. If I'm doing all the talking, you're gonna think I'M crazy.... and honey that's just not the case!

Are you an abbuser-> No Chris & Rihanna going on here!
Yo face will look like Rihanna's. I may be thin, but I'll do what's neessary to send you home with a few bruises! No, but SERIOUSLY, I'd rather not fight at all. As a matter of fact, RULE #1: U R NOT ALLOWED to put your hands on me in a violent way. Not even an issue is it? Glad to say I've never been in that situation, but to the women out there, make it your rule 2!

Are you a LIAR-> I CAN'T stand liars.
I make it a personal goal NOT to lie. OK, if you are trying to save a life or something NOBLE or SERIOUS, I understand. But not to ME, and not on some stupid little issue. I mean what's the worst that could happen? We break up or stop speaking? Ummm, yea that's gonna happen anyway if you continue to LIE. Everything will come to light in OUR relationship boo boo. BELIEVE THAT!!

Are you super HOT and SEXY-> That's just a plus and not a complete requirement, but its greatly appreciated!
Its seems like alot of the guys that approach me are not my desired image, and that's OK... sometimes. I mean you can't get what you want all the time, and sometimes what you want isn't what you need. However, you good looking men are getting to comfortable. These HOES, and also respectable bold women are approaching you. That's fine, but I'm still into guys approaching me so COME ova! I may look mean sometimes, but I'm the SWEETEST thing EVER.

If you think you fit these requirements, you may contact me to sign up for try-outs! I'll be forming a team over the next month. Once my STAR player is identified, the team will be sold to the highest bidder! SIKE, I'll just let the rest go play the field somewhere else! HaHaHa, but SERIOUSLY!!

Vintage : (

Here's the thing..... I LOVE vintage clothing, but its soo hard to find good vintage pieces. When I say good, I mean

1. Clean (for its age!)
2. In tack (or wit fixable flaws)
3. Made of nice fabric (no burlap sack material!)
4. Able to look modern with the right styling

Maybe it's my location, but whenever I visit a vintage shop I leave disappointed. Sure, I've found a couple of earrings (clip-ons, which I love), and one Audrey Hepburn inspired dress, but lately I haven't been seeing anything acceptable. I want classy, valuable pieces... not your grandmother's old smock circa 1963!

I LOVE cocktail rings, and I'm trying 2 find some vintage 1s. No Luck! Well, actually I did find one that was pretty cute. It had personality, but the price was not right. I don't even think it was all the way real! I'll get it on payday!

Where can I find good vintage? I need to move to NY or LA I guess.

Vintage Pucci, ain't it GRAND!

Rachel Zoe, that lucky son of a fashionista!
Ahhhh. Vintage Heaven... where all the old fabulous clothes go to rest until they are bought into a new life!

I have BIG dreams! Those were a little out of my price range, but this I could afford... the jacket

LOVE the boots, purse, and jacket!
The background looks like NY...figures

SERIOUSLY... I was logging onto the web to do something else, and guess who pops up on the news-feed of my homepage. Freaking Michael Jackson, and I have to express my feelings before I explode. I am in a state of overload. I'm to the point where I kinda want to put him to rest, but how can a soul rest with this much attention.

WHY, WHY, WHY won't they leave him alone.
I love Michael, and always will. I grew up listening to his music. I know he was a good person. You can tell from his interviews and candid moments, he embodies an undeniable innocence. This man, who was misunderstood and constantly ridiculed throughout his lifetime, can finally find peace in death; but we have to let his soul rest. Let him live through his music and not the tabloids.

Love U Michael. May you rest in peace BROTHER.

PSA: Parabens

Ladies, and gentlemen for that matter, beware of parabens in your cosmetics. Parabens are preservatives used in skincare, haircare, make-up, and other personal care products. The are used in almost all types of cosmetics that we use externally. Though they create a longer product life, the excessive use of parabens can increase the risk of cancer and other issues. There are different types that are used for different purposes, but they are all easy to spot because the word paraben is at the end.


There was a study in the journal of Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology that shed light on the safety and effects of parabens used in cosmetics. Because of the estrogenic effects they have on the endocrine system, parabens are being linked to breast cancer. In males, exposed as fetuses or before puberty, parabens can increase the risk of reproductive abnormalities and testicular or colon cancers. There have been numerous studies in the past few years that are bringing the truth about parabens to light in America. I HEARD that some countries, like France have outlawed the use of these chemical preservatives, and have found suitable alternative.... I think we should do the same.

However this is not meant to freak anyone out. Today, it is hard to get around using products with parabens, because they are in everything. Also, the amount used in products is so minuscule that it won't make you sick over night. However, I did want to raise awareness on the issue, and urge you to look at the ingredients before slathering on your favorite face cream. When you think about... If you use 10 cosmetics a day, (face wash, face cream, eye cream, mascara, eye shadow, deodorant, etc.) and each one contains parabens, your daily percentage intake steadily increases. Sidebar: Watch out for petroleum as well. It has also been linked to increasing the risk of cancer.

Check out to find out about other harmful ingredients used in our cosmetics. I have tried to incorporate more organic products into my cosmetic routine since discovering this info. I will blog about my favorite natural/organic products later.

Fashion Icon: Kerry Washington

Kerry is my 'all time' fashion icon, because ummm.... she rocks it out when it comes to fashion. She's had her misses, as we all have, but mainly she is dressed to the T. Check out any fashion magazine, and I'm sure you will see her picture rocking a gorgeous outfit!

Just in case you don't know who she is... She is an actress who has starred in 'I think I love my Wife', 'Save The Last Dance', and 'Ray'. She also directed Common's
"I want You' Video. Who would have known? Check her out. But, again, you can find her in fashion magazines out at social functions in the best outfits!
It's great to see a Stylish Sista, and I want to take time out to recognize her because I think she is under-rated. Sidebar: Her hair is always on point. I can't say the same for Tyra or Beyonce...get it together girls. Ms. Kerry Baby!

Internet Slang/Abbreviations

I am speaking of virtual gestures like LOL = Laugh Out Loud. At this point I am behind the times in technology, and even though I am pretty young myself, I don’t know all the abbreviation meanings. Sooo, I’ve created a list to help myself, and maybe you can reference it if you fall behind on your techno lingo!

LLS=Laughing Like Shit
LTS= Laughing To Self
LMAO= Laugh My Ass Off (Some non cursers use B for butt instead of A for Ass)
ROTFLMAO=Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Ass Off
WTF= What The Fu#k
BRB= Be Right Back
JAM= Just A Minute
AFK= Away From Keyboard
BTW= By The Way
BFN= Bye For Now
TTFN= Ta-Ta For Now
CUL8R= See You Later
CYA= See You Later (or Cover Your Ass)
IMHO= In My Humble Opinion
IMNSHO= In My Not So Humble Opinion
PMSL= Pissing Myself Laughing
RTM= Read The Manual
PLZ or PLS= Please
FWIW= For What Its Worth
GAL= Get A Life
H&K= Hugs And Kisses
LABTYD= Life’s A Bi@ch then You Die
LJBF= Lets Just Be Friends
LTNS= Long Time No See
NOYB= None of Your Business
NFW= No Freaking Way
TOY= Think Of You
WDYT= What Do You Think
WAYTA= What are You Talking About (Made that up, but it works!)

Anyway, there are much more, but I’m done copying and pasting! You get it! I really just wanted to know what LLS meant, so I’m good. I like to learn, so once I start something, I kinda get engulfed in it.
