Woman Crush Wednesday

Self-proclaimed Awkward Black Girl, Issa Rae is definitely worthy of WCW this week.  As usual when it comes to TV Shows, I always get on the wave late and I didn’t know anything about Insecure until after the season finale aired and everyone was talking about it, so of course I had to get the…

Man Crush Monday

Are you #TeamLawerence or #TeamIssa? At the end of Insecure Season 1, I had a new found love for Jay R. Ellis.  I don’t know if it was because I felt like I could relate to his pain in the show and I just wanted to give him a hug and some of my good…

Finding Happiness in Celibacy

I haven’t had sex in eleven months.  Eleven months. 11. Once el mes. Onze mois.  I’ve gone eleven months before, but this time it’s different.  The first time I went eleven months, it wasn’t by choice but by force and I knew the moment I had an opportunity to have sex, I’d go for it. …

“Slippery…excuse me…please me…believe me” I can’t be the only one to see how every since Lala and Carmelo Anthony have had their issues that Lala has been out and about and stunting on us! I don’t think. a bad picture from Lala has hit the internet since news broke about them.  Her body looks AMAZING,…

Man Crush Monday

This week’s Man Crush Monday is none other than Chance the Rapper.  I personally fell in love with him October of last year.  One of my line sisters came out to Los Angeles to visit me and we had tickets to a concert that he was going to be at.  I wanted to make sure…
