*Blank Stare* Of The Day

I CAN NOT WITH THIS!!! I Wonder What Movie That Is...

Flaws And All...


Yes, it's true that many men love skinny, big-breasted women with perfect teeth, but there are many men who are wild about some so-called "imperfections." Yahoo Shine gives a list of 5 of the most attractive "flaws" out there.
  1. Hook Nose
  2. Chubby Tummy
  3. Small Breasts
  4. Looking Gross (meaning, when a woman isn't all gussied up)
  5. Gap Teeth
In such a superficial day and age, do you think that a woman's imperfections are praised and adored as much as the long hair, big booty, flat tummy 'illusions' walking around?

I always say that we are ALL shallow to a certain extent. But, when it's all said and done, personality will always outweigh beauty. Men notice the beauty first but peel away the layers and see if there is any substance there. Building a relationship off of looks is like building a mansion on quicksand. It looks hella nice but over time, that beauty will slowly disappear.......then all you'll have left is busted broad still looking for you to take care of her. Smh. Everyone has their flaws...and like my girl, Kimora Lee Simmons says...You have to accentuate your flaws because it's what makes you, YOU. I believe that wholeheartedly. So, work it girl!

P.S. A bad weave is not a flaw, you're just a hot mess. Fix it. :)

You're Not Married And It's Your Fault...

Or at least that's what Tracy McMillan thinks. Tracy is a TV writer whose credits include Mad Men and The United States of Tara. She wrote an article about why women are not married and suggests that it's the woman's fault. Being a single woman in this dating scene has left me with little hope of finding my equal. Can I get to the relationship stage first? Damn! I'm not going to say that all men are dogs, lames, liars, and cheaters but there are plenty of them. But I also think that women have to take responsibility for the type of men they date. What are you attracting:? Why? A lot of times women allow this reckless behavior and then wonder why after a year, that man has not changed or grown. Sometimes we stay in situations longer than we should still hoping for a different outcome or because we don't want to feel like we've failed. And then there are some women who don't carry themselves as 'wifey material' and wonder why they don't get 'wifed'. (Then again, these days...hoes are getting 'wifed'. But that's a different blog. lol) So without further adieu... The Top Six Reasons You Are Not Married:

1. You're a Bitch.
Here's what I mean by bitch. I mean you're angry. You probably don't think you're angry. You think you're super smart, or if you've been to a lot of therapy, that you're setting boundaries. But the truth is you're pissed. At your mom. At the military-industrial complex. At Sarah Palin. And it's scaring men off.

The deal is: most men just want to marry someone who is nice to them. I am the mother of a 13-year-old boy, which is like living with the single-cell protozoa version of a husband. Here's what my son wants out of life: macaroni and cheese, a video game, and Kim Kardashian. Have you ever seen Kim Kardashian angry? I didn't think so. You've seen Kim Kardashian smile, wiggle, and make a sex tape. Female anger terrifies men. I know it seems unfair that you have to work around a man's fear and insecurity in order to get married -- but actually, it's perfect, since working around a man's fear and insecurity is big part of what you'll be doing as a wife.

2. You're Shallow.
When it comes to choosing a husband, only one thing really, truly matters: character. So it stands to reason that a man's character should be at the top of the list of things you are looking for, right? But if you're not married, I already know it isn't. Because if you were looking for a man of character, you would have found one by now. Men of character are, by definition, willing to commit.

Instead, you are looking for someone tall. Or rich. Or someone who knows what an Eames chair is. Unfortunately, this is not the thinking of a wife. This is the thinking of a teenaged girl. And men of character do not want to marry teenaged girls. Because teenage girls are never happy. And they never feel like cooking, either.

3. You're a Slut.
Hooking up with some guy in a hot tub on a rooftop is fine for the ladies of Jersey Shore -- but they're not trying to get married. You are. Which means, unfortunately, that if you're having sex outside committed relationships, you will have to stop. Why? Because past a certain age, casual sex is like recreational heroin -- it doesn't stay recreational for long.

That's due in part to this thing called oxytocin -- a bonding hormone that is released when a woman a) nurses her baby and b) has an orgasm -- that will totally mess up your casual-sex game. It's why you can be f**k-buddying with some dude who isn't even all that great and the next thing you know, you're totally strung out on him. And you have no idea how it happened. Oxytocin, that's how it happened. And since nature can't discriminate between marriage material and Charlie Sheen, you're going to have to start being way more selective than you are right now.

4. You're a Liar.
It usually goes something like this: you meet a guy who is cute and likes you, but he's not really available for a relationship. He has some condition that absolutely precludes his availability, like he's married, or he gets around town on a skateboard. Or maybe he just comes right out and says something cryptic and open to interpretation like, "I'm not really available for a relationship right now."

You know if you tell him the truth -- that you're ready for marriage -- he will stop calling. Usually that day. And you don't want that. So you just tell him how perfect this is because you only want to have sex for fun! You love having fun sex! And you don't want to get in a relationship at all! You swear!
About ten minutes later, the oxytocin kicks in. You start wanting more. But you don't tell him that. That's your secret -- just between you and 22,000 of your closest girlfriends. Instead, you hang around, having sex with him, waiting for him to figure out that he can't live without you. I have news: he will never "figure" this out. He already knows he can live without you just fine. And so do you. Or you wouldn't be lying to him in the first place.

5. You're Selfish.
If you're not married, chances are you think a lot about you. You think about your thighs, your outfits, your naso-labial folds. You think about your career, or if you don't have one, you think about doing yoga teacher training. Sometimes you think about how marrying a wealthy guy -- or at least a guy with a really, really good job -- would solve all your problems.

Howevs, a good wife, even a halfway decent one, does not spend most of her day thinking about herself. She has too much s**t to do, especially after having kids. This is why you see a lot of celebrity women getting husbands after they adopt. The kids put the woman on notice: Bitch, hello! It's not all about you anymore! After a year or two of thinking about someone other than herself, suddenly, Brad Pitt or Harrison Ford comes along and decides to significantly other her. Which is also to say -- if what you really want is a baby, go get you one. Your husband will be along shortly. Motherhood has a way of weeding out the lotharios.

6. You're Not Good Enough.
Oh, I don't think that. You do. I can tell because you're not looking for a partner who is your equal. No, you want someone better than you are: better looking, better family, better job.

Here is what you need to know: You are enough right this minute. Period. Not understanding this is a major obstacle to getting married, since women who don't know their own worth make terrible wives. Why? You can fake it for a while, but ultimately you won't love your spouse any better than you love yourself. Smart men know this. I see this at my son's artsy, progressive school. Of 183 kids, maybe six have moms who are as cute as you're trying to be. They're attractive, sure. They're just not objects. Their husbands (wisely) chose them for their character, not their cup size.
Wow... Interesting. I have to say that I agree with a few of these as it relates to myself. What do you think? What would you add to the list? Let's talk.

SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!! Bey & Jay Separating???

Beyonce showed up to the Grammy's with Gwyneth Paltrow and many were wondering where the hell Jay was. Of course the rumors started circulating and low & behold, our FAV (insert sarcastic *smirk*) gossip site, Media Take Out, is reporting that the couple is splitting! I'm hearing that a source the couple had been having marital problems & have agreed to a trial separation. They say that it's because Hov wants kids NOW and Bey is just not ready. *side eye* So supposedly, Jay is moving into a leased mansion in Cali while Beyonce plans to remain in New York. *side bar* Beyonce and Jay-Z had dinner with Gwyneth Paltrow last week in NYC. 

I don't believe the rumor. Between Jay & Bey and Will & Jada... I still believe in true love....especially Black love. Smh. I tell you, these gossip sites will claim you dead, pregnant, divorced, and sick all in the same week. I'm sure Jay & Bey have problems in their relationship just like any other couple. We sometimes forget that celebs are in fact...humans. And yes, they make mistakes and have the same issues as the next person. Even if they are a super rich, power couple... imagine super rich, power couple problems. They are a million times worst than the broke, tryna come up problems. LOL I'm going to keep my eyes and ears open about this one.

Lil Kim...... SAT YO ASS DOWN!

I love me some Lil Kim, but at this point, my girl is just playing herself with this Nicki Minaj. It's no doubt that she is, and will always be - The Queen Bee. However, it's Nicki's turn. Let Nicki Minaj rock and show how you inspired her. I like Nicki and I think her marketing strategy is genius. It's one thing that I'm convinced of...and that's that Lil Kim has NO real friends. Cuz if she had some, they would NOT have let her release this... Listen for yourself:


In this day and age, real friends are so hard to come by. You have to appreciate the people that come into your life. I would definitely rather have a handful of friends than a bunch of 'faux' friends. I've come to learn that everyone does NOT have your best interest at heart. Wow, when you think realize someone in your circle is an opportunist... it makes you put things into perspective. You can't tell everybody, every thing. Sadly, you can't share your success with everybody. I always say- "Sometimes the same ones cheering for you on the sideline are the same ones trying to get you out the game." *side eye* Loyalty is the number one rule...and I am loyal to a fault. The best quote to describe me as a friend I found from @PiscesAreUs: "A friend is someone who will bail you out of jail. A Pisces friend is the one sitting beside you saying, 'Damn that was fun'.

Here are the 5 kinds of friends a woman can count on for just about everything:

1. The uplifter. This woman's favorite word is yes! Anything you want to do, she'll tell you (with major enthusiasm and support) to go for it.

2. The travel buddy. A great travel buddy is flexible, adventurous, willing to try new things and comfortable with quiet time when you both need it.

3. The truth teller. She tells it like it is, but the hard truth is spoken with love.

4. The "girls just wanna have fun" friend. This friendship is all about spontaneous good times and laughing it up.

5. The unlikely friend. She might be much older or younger, much richer or poorer or from a different culture-a variety of friends add richness to your life.
