Marvels Relaunches Spider Woman

I am not really into comics, but of course I became intrigued when I saw the new relaunch of Spider Woman. Jessica Drew plays the role of parent by day and super hero by night. Set to launch in October, I can't wait to read this story line. There are many women who play this role and have to juggle parenting and careers. It becomes even more challenging when you are balancing womanhood and feeling sexy in your own skin (I can so relate to that especially after the birth of my daughter). ... Continue Reading

Lessons from Fancy Nancy the Musical

Merriam-Webster defines the word "Fancy" as made or done with great care or with much detail.  I took my daughter and friends to see "Fancy Nancy The Musical' at the Main Street Theater.  I was pleasantly surprise by the content and the acting skills of the performers.  It was quite engaging and the shark rap was really unexpected.  My daughter and her friends enjoyed it and  we all walked away with a new found understanding of "Fancy". FANCY Lessons: FANCY is a state of ... Continue Reading


On April 14th, 2015, Courtney Summers  who is an author of young adult fiction challenges the public to "take the opportunity to tell the girls you know—and the ones you don’t—that they are seen, heard and loved. Share advice. Be encouraging. Tell us about or thank the girls in your life who have made a difference in yours. Use the hashtag #ToTheGirls along with your personal message of support and encouragement across your social media platforms" (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram ... Continue Reading

She Married Herself

I read this story earlier this week and of course as everyone else, I was curious about her story.  Yasmin Elbey decided to marry herself in celebration of God giving her 40 yrs in this beautiful world!  People may have laughed at her decision to marry herself, but it makes sense.  Why not celebrate you and spend lavishly on your special day.  I commend her for this idea and that she used her ceremony to share the message of self love to her guest by way of three ministers. This morning ... Continue Reading

Tell Us How You Really Feel

When I heard about this clip yesterday I had to do a Google search and to my disbelief I was shocked. So shocked that I had to look at the clip 3-4 times.  Each time I laughed because Charlo Greene was so matter of fact with her delivery.  I wasn't shocked about her "cannabis movement", it was her flipped shoulder shrugging demeanor that got me!  I wasn't even offended by the F it at the time and I'm still not.  So I went on to check her FB out because there had to be more to her that ...

Shake It Off Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift could not have sang the chorus any better "Shake It Off". In a world of opinions, assumptions and accusations it could make a sane person want to go mad. Everyone has their role and once I learn what it is, then I decide how much time I want to invest in the MESS. I have been there and at the end of the day, it serves no good to pay attention to what people have to say especially when they don't know. So I keep it moving and "Shake It Off". Continue Reading

Kudos To Social Media & Women Everywhere

Sometimes the social media experience can feel like 10 hour days of ridiculousness.  This week was the exception when women from Turkey and all over the world used a simple expression of smiles in protest of the public message  from Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc.  His opinion regarding women smiling and laughing in public stirred up emotions which sent social media buzzing with selfies of happy smiling women all over the world!  I think its fabulous that women positively ...

Sallie Mae Pay My Tuition Please

This parody is funny, but the reality of it is many of us leave college with a degree and in debt up to our eyeballs with no emploment pulling six figures. No one prepares you for the feeling after you leave school and receive your first Sallie Mae bill. Not to mention the figures in the box that seem to go on and on. Then there is the length of time you have to pay this off. Talk about anxiety and pressure. After undergraduate I toyed wit the idea of going to graduate school and I had ... Continue Reading

Did He Really Say That?

On Saturday I decided to get a massage with the Black Women That Rock Meetup Group.  I planned to be there on time, but the universe was not in alignment correctly and I was a tad-bit late.  Nonetheless, I made it and I knew I needed this massage after a week of constantly giving of myself to others. While I was waiting to be called for my massage, this gentleman comes in and goes to the window where payments are made.  As he proceeded to leave, he stopped where I was sitting and said, "Its ...

What’s Good Up To…

It only takes one to share a message, plant a seed and change directions!  You don't have to be in a powerful role in your life or have a bunch of followers on social media.  Just a positive message and courage to say what many people may be thinking, but not wanting to say.  Allstate got it right with this commercial... So what's GOOD UP TO? Continue Reading
