Kelis, please step away from the scissors!

Lifestyle
I happen to one of the few American's who is into Kelis ... Or at least I used to be. I ADORED her album Kelis Was Here. In fact, many songs off that album are still getting heavy rotation. I actually BOUGHT that cd. I also happen to think Kelis is a really pretty woman. So this is why it pains me to see her looking so ... BAD these days!! It's like she is just trying wayyyy too hard to be unique. Look at these pics, this is the Kelis I like: (yes, I really took the time to create a collage of Kelis looks.. and I don't have Photoshop!!! I won't reveal how I made it happen lol)Kelis was HOT in these pics!! Exuding Sexxxyy!! But now.. just…

Monday Madness!!

Lifestyle
Fret not my lovers!!! I have not quit this gig yet! My postings always slack when I enter the busy season at my full-time job. Much apologies! It also doesn't help that I've been feeling completely and  utterly dull lately. I'm in a life rut! But things go on.. I have a confession. Please don't judge. Lately I've been clocking waaayy too many hours of the Disney channel for someone with no kids. But Phineas & Ferb and Wizards of Waverly Place always draw me in! And when nothing else is on, they reallly hit the spot. And then I was in NYC yesterday and crossed Waverly Place! I almost went looking for the Subway Sub Shop. Its true I'm a real geek at heart, and even though I think…

My (NON) New Year’s Resolutions

Lifestyle
New Year, New ME? Isn't that what you've heard all week (and the last 3 weeks of 20009?) or the fact that people were leaving the past in the last decade? If you're like me you've made the same resolution ten year in a row: save money,  do x, and don't do Y. And why? So we can later count our failures as we transition to the next year, and vow to do the same things over and over again? But that's not to knock the significance of the idea of a New Year Resolution, because to some it really is a chance to start with a clean slate. Sometimes someething may happen on New Years Eve's Eve and you realize that you want to leave that in the past.…

Spreading Sunshine on Mischief Night?

Lifestyle
Happy Pre-Halloween!! Don't throw eggs on anyone, or tee pee any houses!  OK! I  love to spread sunshine. It may not seem important but I enjoy sharing my little jewels with others, as silly as they may be.  So it really bothers me when people have outdated blogrolls. Its one thing if the blogger just hasn't updated in months, totally another when the blog just doesn't exist anymore. I'm just saying, its good business to keep it updated.    On with the show!! 1. Women want a lot, or that's so it seems. And I, as a woman, find that I want very little.  But this guy, no idea who he is, breaks it down to how to get what you want, with humor - not in those cheesy Cosmo ways…

Cleo Rants: Gender Roles too enforced?

Lifestyle
I did a poll of friends to discuss whether Irish Spring was a male soap or a unisex soap. It started off as a friendly debate between someone, but I needed to validate one of our points. After all, someone has to be right. Overall, most people only remembered the original scent of Irish Spring. You know, the big green or blue bar that will leave your wash rag tinted iwth that color. Those I will stand by the point made by the opposition in that those may be masculine, but others like aloe and micro clean are unisex. What man is ready for lemon scent? I think that Colgate (the distributor of Irish Spring) markets more for me because if they make the soap seem too girly, men won't…

Spreading Sunshine: 10.13.09

Lifestyle
1. Want to be a Wine expert? Me too! I happen to LOVE wine, and I'm all for having the right wine for the right occasion. Except, my dilemma is that I hate red wine! But, like the author said, "Every adult should be familiar with wine, even if they do not drink it." 2. Would you get a piranha pedicure? Part of me finds this midly intriguing but utterly gross!!! What do they do with the fish while they change the water? But I just really want to know how smooth are your feet when its done? Will some people still need that razor later?? 3. Need a Plug Rug? So, when I go out and I need to hide things - tampons, cameras, ID and the like, I…

Spreading Sunshine 7/7/09

Lifestyle
Hey Lovers! It's been awhile since I spread some love out in the world, but all is well because I'm back at it! I hope this entertains you, because it has to entertain me in traffic court today.  Enjoy! 1. Hate your boss or job? This makes the cut because I can relate. Bosses who micro-manage the most menial bullcrap & how that can sometimes cause you to check out. I also have a few close friends who can dig this! (Thx! to The Goodie Bag!!) 2. High Fashion? Sometimes I don't get it. Don't get me wrong, I am a mini fashionista, but first and foremost I am a budgetista. I need my clothes to be cute 7 affordable, and if it can double from work to play, EVEN…

What is a revolutionary in 2009?

Lifestyle
Facebooky has all these little quizlets you can take when your bored, you've all seen them: What kind of lover are you? What is your sexual personality, How Dateable are you. When will you get married, etc., They are cool to pass the time with sometimes... at least they do for me at work. Today one of my friends took the "What Black Leader are You?" so I decided to follow. I don't know how the hell they arrive at their answers based on the questions used, but apparently I'm Angela Davis, which for me is cool because I think she rocks. You may quietly consider yourself a rebel with a cause. You were not designed to follow social conformities and this gets you in a world of trouble; nevertheless,…

Let’s play the blame game!!

Let’s play the blame game!!

Lifestyle
  People kill me with their nonsense, celebrities especially (or in this case a wanna be celebrity). The other morning I was listening to the radio getting dressed for work as usual and they announced Cassie was naming a culprit in the release of her nude pics (some people will do anything for a shot at fame). So I listened intently ready to hear the report. This heffa, with her goat pitched voiced, had the nerve to say she blames Google and their lack of security for her leaked picture. Seriously? Or you could have a better password idiot. I mean, now we can blame anyone for things that go wrong? Well I have some too! *clears throat* First  would like to blame Honda for my speeding ticket. How dare…

Leggings are NOT club wear…

Lifestyle
UGH. Why must people ruin a good thing? I love a pair of leggings on a relaxing day. Rock them with a tunic and some flip flops and its all good. Or on a day when its raining so you can just throw on the rain boots and keep it moving. LOVE THEM!And even sometimes on my super skinny girlfriends they have rocked them out  @ the club or some other even and looked adorable.  But let's be honest, leggings + club = FAIL! You just don't do it, or if you do it do it right... Exhibit A: HATED IT!!! Homegirl has on like 3 different tones & materials. What's with the random brown band in the midriff area? Sequins &  Satin? Seriously? I do know those are Steve…

Men, please exercise foot care!

Lifestyle
Men, foot care is not just a female worry, so even if you don't go and let a professional do it please take the time do it yourself. I know there are some stigmas and stereotypes that surround men who go out and get pedicures, but I say damn all that. Some straight guys say its a "homo" thing to do.. but how do they figure. Pedicures  come with a foot and lower leg massage, full nail care, callus treatment, and moisturizing so unless your getting some nail polish I don't see how that makes it in any way gay. I mean, most men enjoy a nice massage, sooo... what's the problem.. Here is where this thought began to ruminate, just so you don't think I'm coming out of left…

Is Allen Iverson washed up?

Lifestyle
In all my teenage glory I used to be an avid droolee fan of Allen "The Answer" Iverson. My high school years were full of Sixers Jerseys and Cleo Iverson written in notebooks. I thought he was just the best thing since sliced bread. I watched every playoff game, Olympic game and All Star game that featured my future husband. My best friend also had a crush on him too, and we could both lament over his sexiness. Fast Forward a few  years and the Allen Iverson of today is merely a shadow of the man he used to be. I came across an article question whether AI would be signed next year as he enters free agency due to his last failed attempts at leading other teams.  I would…

Recession Jobs: Instant Glory-WRITE A TELL-ALL!

Lifestyle
Everyone is always trying to be a star or some sort of "celebrity" to gain fame. What is America's obsession with instant fame? And why do us non-famous people feed into the madness? I have been ruminating on the idea of everyone wanting to be a celebrity for about a week now and then it re-emerged today while listening to the radio, so when that happens I have to share my thoughts, I mean it would be WRONG not to, right?? If you don't believe that everyone wants to be a pseudo-celebrity all you  have to do is look on Myspace and see everyone with hundreds of pics (half of them in their bathroom mirror) with captions like "please stop hating" or "you know you want it" and further proof…

Relationship Role Playing.. Do we really want to be equal?

Relationship Role Playing.. Do we really want to be equal?

Lifestyle, Mis-Adventures
Their is the timeless argument about men, women, and who pays for the date. Many women, myself included, feel a man should pay. Some men feel that women should pay. Especially in this age of Ms. Independent. Now, I work hard and I don't really care who knows it, but I'm not one of those women who boasts about how she has her own. In fact, every time I heard that song by Jamie Foxx, Fabolous, & Ne-yo I'd cringe when he said "she takes pride knowing she paid for it." Not that its a stupid bad thing but not everyone enjoys that. Personally I'm happier when I'm using something that was a gift, it makes me feel like someone loved me enough to buy me something they knew I'd…

Pontiac No More?

Lifestyle
GM is said to be cutting the Pontiac Line. I can't believe this. I officially think the people over at GM are idiots! How can you cancel the Pontiac line, but keep them big ass gas guzzling SUVs? Grand Ams are some HOOTTT cars & the Grand Prix isn't too shabby itself.  I mean, come on, look at the body on that car. I wanted one of these so bad when they first released.  *sigh* This guy I had a crush on in high school, he used to have one of these. He used to look so sexy driving it, and all the young girls (myself included) would idly lust after him in the way that only teenage girls can. I wonder what ever happened to him.... Now, this comes…
