My skin loves to play games with me. It’s like a frat boy. The ones who are 30 years of age but still frat boys. You see, my skin is not young or old, but it likes to act as if it has no idea what it’s doing, or with whom it’s loyalties should lie.
So I wanna be a lady… but YouTube is making me it’s b&%#%. Did you know that you too can be beautiful? Did you know that you can create the perfect cat eye, sew in your own weave, contour your face like the stars and do your own acrylic nails at home? But wait, there’s

So the other night I’m getting ready to go out with my best friend. I shower and get all dolled up. And because I want to be more of a lady, I had gone out and bought myself some new fragrances. I love a just showered smell, but I wanted a little extra. I smell
These past few days have been cold. By the standards of anyone else in any part of the country they’d say it was merely cool and pleasant. It was pleasant that I actually got to wear some winter clothes in January. The cold lasted only three days as is typical of Florida. But as is
A few months ago, a very good friend of mine mentioned that I don’t do many lady things, and that I should start. I think the wording was more “woman things”; lady fits my blog name better so there. Well, I was shocked, stunned, stupefied. What was the meaning of this? What did it all mean?
I walked into my local nail salon to get my eyebrows waxed. The following is the conversation that transpired: Shop Lady: (in heavy Korean accent): Hello, what would you like?
