Historical Ties

February is Black History Month and I’m never really quite sure how to handle it. Should I write a post dedicated to some aspect of Black history? Should I write a month long series? Should I just ignore it and move on? I think my attitude reflects the conflicted world […]

Product Review: POM Wonderful

I’m a big fan of the exotic ~ be it person, place or thing. If it’s different I’m drawn to it (just ask my poor children who have to go through life with names like Anjuli, Jazmine and Arkese). But I especially love exotic foods (seriously, there is almost nothing […]

Coming Untied

Omg, this posting once a day on the topic of ties is sooo much harder than I thought it’d be. In my head I had all of these wonderful ideas… I mean the words were just flowing. In reality, not so much. It’s only the fifth day and I’m already […]

Day 10 of the Pete Cohen 28 Day Challenge

Community Ties

Weigh~In Wednesday

This is week 5 of Weigh In Wednesday for the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans! I cannot believe it’s been this long. Again, I’m pretty proud of myself for sticking it out. So let’s see how I’ve done this week: Measurements Bust ~ 36 in Arm ~ 12 3/4 in […]

Hair Ties

For twelve years I was addicted to the “creamy crack” ~ it made my hair so soft and manageable, swingy and straight, absolutely beautiful. I loved the flexibility that relaxing offered ~ I could wear it straight, curly, in a bob or pulled into a sleek chignon with little jewels […]

Monday Wrap~Up

I really need to come up with a steady name for this post. I like consistency. Anyway, it’s a new month so that means new beginnings so here’s today’s food and exercise journal: Exercise EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge: Day 1 Minutes ~ 29.56 Calories ~ 187.8 Walk Minutes […]
