Random thoughts...


Yes I like it, yes for sure,
and I need it, just give me more,
I want to hold you through the night,
until we see sun light

Hey baby, yes you know,
when I'm in your arms, it makes our love grow.
Hey baby, ooo baby boy you blow my mind.
A love like this is hard to find.

Chile

My heart goes out to all the people in Chile. I am at such a lost for words...
I can't imagine what it is like to experience an Earthquake... I have a lot of family living in the Caribbean so I get nervous right away when I hear the word Earthquake.
May God give them the strength and courage to get through this.

Forgivness



Recently I find myself having a hard time "forgiving". I struggle with having to find the compassion to forgive someone when they have wronged me, until I heard someone say this which gave me a whole new perspective:
Forgiveness:
is not an act of compassion for those who deserve it,
it is an act of compassion for those who NEED it.

Dad accused of...

WOW!! This story literally BLEEEEW ME AWAY!! A father accused of killing his 15 year old son over accusations that he had "sexual contact" with a 3 year old!

"HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. - A 37-year-old father irate over hearing his 15-year-old son had sexual contact with a 3-year-old girl made the teen strip at gunpoint, marched him to a vacant lot and shot him to death despite pleas from the boy and his mother, a relative said.
Michigan authorities filed a first-degree murder charge Wednesday against Jamar Pinkney Sr. in the shooting death Monday of Jamar Pinkney Jr. in the Detroit enclave of Highland Park.
Defense attorney Corbett O'Meara said prosecutors should consider evidence of the father's state of mind over the sex abuse report."

Now I've heard people express that they feel child molestor's should be killed but this definitely puts a twist on things! Don't even know where to begin with this one...

relaxing sunday

i had a zen like spa day today, it was so therapeutic, definitely needed it!

i woke up this morning, went shopping for a hair mask and some henna then also purchased some fresh raspberries.

came home gave myself the henna treatment, then ate the raspberries - they were semi sour/semi sweet, i enjoyed the blending of the two extreme flavors in one! delicious!

washed out the henna treatment (which by the way was my first time ever using henna, I believe henna is a gift from the gods of natural beauty!)

then it was time to deep condition my hair.

i sipped on some orange juice as my hair soaked in the elixir (hair mask) and then began watching the nanny diaries (cute sunday movie!)...

i still have approx 5 more hours until bedtime, when I rinse out the beauty elixir i'm going to take a luxurious shower using a salt scrub and try out my new vicki C's shea butter cream! can't wait...

until next time SMOOCHES! xoxox

Fort Hood

RIP to the ones who lost their lives at the Fort Hood attack. My heart goes out to their friends and family. I was watching the tragedy on the news and I can't imagine being a mother or a husband, brother, sister or wife wondering if my loved one was a victim, it just so nerve wrecking! You really have no control of situations like this, and I think that's the part that is so unsettling to me.

It makes me realize how bless I am that I appreciate life. When people begin to disregard life its one of the most dangerous things...we only have one life, and we need to cherish it!

Closer

Chasing a high
Trying to find the center
Trying to get a little bit closer
But I'm moving oh so further
Oh so further from what matters most
This song that plays in my heart
Beats so fast its keep us apart
It feels so real to me
So near, but yet your so far
Can I get a little bit closer...
To you
Can I?
Can I get a little bit closer.

Saving is for Suckers

Lately I find myself very interested in understanding how my money and the economy works! I honestly believe understanding how your credit works and learning how to invest your money should be thought in high school instead of algebra! Now these are things that would benefit us as adults not instead of learning why E=MC2!!!

I just learned that instead of saving your money you should invest it. Main reason being when we put our money in the bank we lend it to the bank at a rate of about 1%, our bank in turn lends OUR money to the government for 4%, to big companies at 6% or to smaller companies for 8% or more!! These banks are profiting off of our money and we in turn get NOTHING!! Let me do add that this strictly applies to the currenct economic state that our economy is in.

Please read the following article so that the author (Jon Markman) can break it down for you in more technical terms: http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/learn-how-to-invest/why-saving-is-for-suckers.aspx

He suggests ways to start investing your money because as of right now "investing will get you a lot further than saving". I am definitely going to look into this!

"LOVE...
isn't something that is earned
it's deserved
love is something I can give
Cause I'm worth it"
- Floerty




Don't Stop Us


Do good things come easy?
Are you ready for this journey
Do you think we can make it through?

What was it that drew us close together
Maybe if we figure that out we can pull through
And stop all this fighting and this pain

Let me pour you a good long drink
Let us sit and reminisce about what we do
Let me be the one to guide us through

Let you and I become us
Let me and you become we
This is so special we can't be afraid.

Always and Forever

So many nights have come and gone
So many forever's were promised to me
so many times I wished you were here with me

So many days I thought about you
So many always should be me and you
but so many obstacles in our way

You said Forever
I said Always
But the only thing that was forever and always
Was that there once was a you and me...

Lost without you

I'm open baby
I'm ecstatic
I'm full of love

Do I ever cross your mind?
Do I ever make you feel
Do you ever fantasize of what could be

Do we have that one thing in common?
Or are we so far apart that we can't see,
Blinded by our selfish needs

Tell me who I have to be
I want you still...
I always will...

Cars of the future

I am the last person to ever know anything about cars but I thought this was so cooooooool!!!

Here is what the future holds:

Volkswagen L1 Concept - "a car that uses one liter of fuel—about a quarter of a gallon—to propel a car for 100 kilometers, or 62 miles. The one-liter car’s fuel economy translates to almost 240 mpg... Three ingredients were needed to make it happen: a supremely efficient powertrain, great aerodynamics, and lightweight engineering... It could be on the market as soon as 2013" says Volkswagen sources!!

I think I'm going to buy my first car in 2013!!

RIP Patrick Swayze

I was really sad to hear that Patrick Swayze lost his battle with pancreatic cancer today. When I was a tweeny/teen I think I watched Dirty Dancing every 3 days! I LOVE THAT MOVIE, so I just wanted to take the time and say RIP to the first man to dance his way into my life!

We will miss you!!!

Greaaaat day today!!


I left work early today to attend our annual summer outing. We went bowling at Lucky Strikes, I chilled and hanged out with my favorite chicks at work! I really realized how much I LOVE these girls today. I can honestly say I found a family of friends who I can truly keep it real with, who doesn't judge me but at the same time tells me like it is when need be. We talked about everything from work to relationships, we cracked endless jokes, we drank and just naturally had a GREAT TIME.

BIG UP TO SANGRIA WEDNESDAYS AT FASHION 40!

Coco Excerpts - Part 1



I wanted him to kiss me there
I wanted him to kiss me here
I was feeling like I would just explode
I was feeling like I had no control
I couldn't stand to feel his kisses
I started to think about how much I could miss this
I wanted him to lick it,
I wanted him to bite it and light it up
I simply crave that fire touch
Oooo la la how I want it so much
I miss the days that we were together
I think I'll start by sending him a letter.

Guess.....

Who is bizaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!!

I found my username and password YAAAAAAAY!!

Good Hair by Chris Rock



Kudos for Chris Rock on filming a documentary about "Good Hair" which I suspect is targeted towards and addressing the whole idea and thought process of what is considered "good hair" amongst the African American community. Chris Rock said he got the idea when his daughter came to him crying and asked, “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair?”

"Good Hair visits hair salons and styling battles, scientific laboratories, and Indian temples to explore the way black hairstyles impact the activities, pocketbooks, sexual relationships, and self-esteem of black people."

My hair is all natural and curly and it always amazes me when people say you have "good hair" because the first thing I think is try running a comb through this with out some leave-in-conditioner or water or something!

But anyways I can't wait to check the documentary out when it hits theaters! One of the producers for the documentary said that "there needs to be a real discussion among black woman about when their daughters should get a relaxer." I TOTALLY agree, I cannot understand the thought process behind giving a 4 year old a perm!! Little girls need their hair to grow and develop before exposing them to such a potent chemical. And besides when you have a perm you have to know how to treat your hair (being that it is in a weaker state than when natural) and a 4 year old definitely does not know how to take care of permed processed hair!
