7 Things Black People “Don’t” Do That They Should

We’ve all heard it before “black people don’t ____” fill in the blank. Unbeknownst to me, there is a section in the guide to being black that lists the things that black people don’t do. Now, I can understand this for our protection but we’re missing out on experiencing life. So, I’ve decided to list 7 things I think black people should start doing. (I’m not saying that all black people don’t do these things but these are common ones I have seen and heard.) Travel: I’m not sure if this is a…

“Teach Her To Be A Woman, Not A Wife”

A friend of mine wrote an article the other day that stuck with me. The article (http://febepoet.wordpress.com/2014/06/28/teach-her-to-be-a-woman-not-a-wife/) was called “Teach Her To A Woman, Not A Wife”. It talked about how we raise girls to aspire to be wives as oppose to being woman first then a wife. The article was very insightful to me. One of my co workers, who is older, says a lot that she thinks that a lot of girls desire to be in a committed relationship very early in life. Think about it, girls are thinking…

Should You Be In That Relationship: Don’t Miss The Red Flags Part II

Should You Be In That Relationship: Don’t Miss The Red Flags

I’ve seen it countless times (and have done it myself). You’re talking, exclusive, dating, messing around or engaged to someone you have apprehensions about. You may or may not understand why but instead of doing some soul searching you stay in the relationship. Then the next thing you know months or even years have gone past and things are not good. I’ll admit to it first, I’ve done it before. I knew from the beginning what the issues would be but decided to overlook them for the special moments that…

Get Better Grades And Lower Stress Levels By Doing This Everyday

Two of my sisters are getting married, I have two part time jobs, a 30 hour weekly internship, graduating from college and a whole list of other things that I’ll keep to myself. I’m 23 and I am too busy. We live in a fast paced society that tells us the more that we do and have the better that we are. And that is far from the truth. So recently I’ve decided to slow down and take on something that I have wanted to do for the past 3…

Fade Dark Spots for under a $1

For all who have been following me, you know that I have been on a skin care regimen to clear up all of the dark spots on my skin.

I asked her what she used and you won’t believe what she said…Lemon!!!!!  The results were right in front of my face and I could not deny…

No If, Ands, Or BUTTs About It: Truth About Butt Injections

Turn on the radio. If you’re listening to a station that’s geared at our generation chances are the song that’s being played just told us females to bend over, wobble it, shake that a**, split it open, etc. I know that was a blunt way to start this post but let’s be real, most of the music out there is about T&A (Tits and A**). Now don’t get em wrong. I think females, especially black and Hispanic females, naturally have some of the most beautiful and tempting bodies out here.…
