Dedicated to The Cut: How to Get Lips Like a Black Girl…or at Least Like This Black Girl

Dedicated to The Cut: How to Get Lips Like a Black Girl…or at Least Like This Black Girl

I don’t read too many beauty or fashion blogs—I dare not let my creative grey matter get muddled by those who opine on significant matters, like which green eyeshadow best fits-the-bill for Pantone Color of the Year. (That’s emerald green, BTW.) While it’s probably the blogger-correct thing to do, I’m not doing it.  At the […]

Really?: Willow Smith Really Can’t Whip Her Hair Now that She Shaved it off!

Really?:  Willow Smith Really Can’t Whip Her Hair Now that She Shaved it off!

Bad hair days?  We all have them.  We may throw a cap on, or even go incognito in a scarf and oversized glasses.   And on occasion we may be tempted to take a razor to our heads (memories of Britney), but there is usually that impulse control that kicks in and says, quite loudly […]

In Honor of Rosia Lee Ivey: Beauty at 98

In Honor of Rosia Lee Ivey: Beauty at 98

My grandmother, Rosia Lee Ivey died yesterday. She was 98, and the most beautiful woman I have ever known.  She lived a full, vibrant life and taught me, my children and all those she touched many lessons.  Rosia Lee was known for her amazing cooking skills; she released a cookbook, Recipes for Life, at the […]

Manly Man: How Can Men Get Breast Cancer?

Manly Man: How Can Men Get Breast Cancer?

Do you think that men are immune to breast cancer?  Think again.  Even men can develop breast cancer.   Even though men do not have breasts like women, they do have a small amount of breast tissue. In fact the "breasts" of an adult man are similar to the breasts of a girl before puberty, […]

Editorial: Career, Marriage then Baby—Beyoncé got it Right

Editorial: Career, Marriage then Baby—Beyoncé got it Right

I’m in love with Beyoncé again.  I almost wish I were her mom.  Let me digress… I recently fell out of love with Beyoncé.  I haven’t been so thrilled with her latest musical offerings.  While I do advocate for women’s rights, that women should indeed have equal standing with men on this planet, I don't […]

Beauty News: Italian Vogue features Slave Earrings—Really?

I remember when Vogue Italia published the all Black issue three years ago.  I bought two—one to read, and one to leave in the plastic as a collector's item.  I was sooo excited, and I still am.  But it seems that the fashion rags take one step forward and two back.  Like this issue did. […]

Think Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Think Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Today marks the 25th anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness month. No doubt you have been personally affected by this disease – a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife or you yourself may be a survivor. I have had friends and family who have died from ∫.  My first cousin had a double mastectomy in […]

Editorial: Cleaning out my Closet

Editorial: Cleaning out my Closet

 I've been continuously blogging on this site for about six months now, and it seems that I am continuously changing my focus, my voice, my priorities when it comes to subjects about which I write. In a previous life (paid to blog) I was a mean blogger. My subject was beauty and I chopped up folks […]

ADD and Blogging Don’t Mix

ADD and Blogging Don’t Mix

I guess I was feeling all high on life after I saw Julie and Julie when I wrote my blog two Sundays ago.  For some insane reason, I decided that I was going to blog for 60 straight days.  What on earth possessed me to say such a thing?  I know myself — I'm the poster […]

Really: Keeping it Real—How Much Photoshop is too Much?

Really:  Keeping it Real—How Much Photoshop is too Much?

You know, Photoshop just doesn't do everyone justice.  Yea sure, the major fashion magazines feel compelled to make stick-thin models even thinner than they are.  It's a great tool for getting rid of bags and sags — just ask Tyra who has shown her Photoshopped legs, before and after.  Or even more recently Kim Kardashian, […]
