Sen. John McCain dies at 81, 2 days after he announced his decision to end his cancer treatments. The Arizona Senator was a naval bomber pilot, prisoner of war, conservative maverick, a giant of the Senate, and presidential candidate. John McCain survived plane crashes, several bouts of skin cancer. According to CNN the late Senator helped plan his own funeral and has told several that he did not want Trump to attend his funeral services, and can you blame him after everything he’s said about him.

no comment

First of all, let me start off by saying I’m super hype the Insecure is back on. A little sad that Lawrence won’t be back, but I’m team Daniel anyway. Now I’m a little pissed at how the writers trick us in the opening. Especially because I want to see Issa and Daniel together. I was like why did Daniel have to be petty and do my Girl like that? Like are you seriously smashing another girl while Issa is on your couch? Damn Daniel, you’re EXTRA petty for that. I feel like my girl Issa just can’t catch a

no comment

Unless you live under a rock I’m pretty sure you know that Beyonce is on the cover of Vogue’s September issue. I’ve always been a huge fan of Beyonce but her realness in this article made me love her more. With the pressures to be perfect due to social media, Beyonce opened up about giving birth and how she took some much needed time to give herself some self-love saying “I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and

Women to Watch: Angela Styles

no comment

Hair by Angela C. Styles I’ve been following Angela C. Styles since her break out role in WE Tv’s La Hair back in 2012. Angela had always been my favorite on the show, her castmates didn’t feel the same as me though. To me, they were intimidated by her. I had always felt that she was going to be bigger than the show, and maybe in bigger than Kim Kimble.  About 3 years ago Angela chopped all her hair off, I was kinda shocked. Here you have this beautiful hair stylist who could do anything she wanted with her hair, but

Queen Nicki

no comment

This week Elle Magazine released its July issue with Nicki Minaj on the cover. After a four year break, she’s back with a new Album “Queen”, but it’s not her new album that has me hype, it’s her personal growth, and the fact that for the first time in 15 years she single. Why am I excited about this you ask? Well because it’s refreshing to know that it’s ok to be single. I am at the awkward stage in my life where I feel bad that I’m single. I feel like what’s wrong with me? Why am I

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. Eleanor Roosevelt If you’ve been reading my blog then you know I totally lost myself in my relationship. But starting over and getting motivated doesn’t always mean it must be after a relationship. You can’t start over after the depression, or maybe even a traumatic event.

Friends You Should Have in your Corner

1 comment

So Friday I experience the worst heartbreak that I have ever experienced. I didn’t think I could ever experience that pain. What’s the first thing you do when you’re hurt? You call your friends. I have to tell you guys I have some of the best friends a girl could ever ask for. I’m not gonna discuss the happened because I’m not ready yet. I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends – from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began

How Can We Stop Bullying

no comment

  I remember vividly in the 6th grade when the bullying started. I can remember one day while sitting in my English last someone slipped a note on my desk. “You are ugly,” it said. I looked up at the person who passed me the note; a group of girls were looking at me laughing at me. I put my head down in sadness and asked myself “why do they hate me so much” to keep me from crying I put my head down and continued to read my history book. A few moments later another note was slipped on
