So Thankful!

Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!  I was going to make a list of all the things I'm thankful for, but where would I begin and end such a list? So I quit. I cannot ever list everything I'm thankful for, and I can never thank God enough for any single thing He has done and continues to do. But I'm wishing you a Thanksgiving Day, and I hope you continue to have countless things to be thankful for. If you go shopping tomorrow, try not to get trampled and killed  :-D H A P P Y .

My Entire Thoughts About The Bill Cosby Rape Scandal

Bill Cosby

It's like every other day, a new "victim" appears from somewhere, accusing Bill Cosby of a rape that happened a few decades ago. At first, I thought these allegations were ridiculous. Now, I still think they're ridiculous, but I don't know if I think they're ridiculous because he could not have done them, or ridiculous because how dare he do them? Some people have made up their minds that if there are 13, 14, 15, 16 or whatever number of women accusing you of rape, then it must be true. Others Continue Reading

The Best Time To Start Your Laser Hair Removal Treament Is Right Now

The-Classic-Bandeau

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. By now, I know that you (and the world) know that I'm receiving laser treatments for my bikini area. I cannot tell you how many people have asked me [off the blog] about my laser treatments. People want to know how it's going, how does it feel, how much does it cost, and when is the best time to start? All valid questions. First of all, I had no idea that so many people were interested in laser Continue Reading

Being Nigerian: The Sex Tape Edition

Scandal

Do you watch Scandal? This episode is inspired by Scandal. Well, during the episode, Like Father, Like Daughter (Season 4, Episode 4), the President's daughter, Karen filmed a sex tape with two boys. When her father found out, he wanted to know if she was forced, if she was raped, etc. She confidently said that she was not raped, and that she was alert the entire time and knew what she was doing. But when she spoke to her mom, her mom said (I'm paraphrasing) that she understood why she made the Continue Reading

If You Were Beyonce, Would You Meet Your Half-Siblings?

Koi Knowles, Beyonce's Half Sister

Beyonce's dad has done it again. Another woman has come forward to tell the world that she, too, has a baby with Beyonce's dad, Matthew Knowles, and the baby was conceived while he was still married to Beyonce's mom. This time, it's TaQoya Branscomb, a 30 year old "lingerie model" (for a vintage line that will be released in 2015) and a Realtor (who was once arrested for prostitution. But it was a mistake because she was only a "dancer").   TaQoya got pregnant in 2010, just Continue Reading

What Else Does Ideal Image Hair Removal Do?

Some of the free goodies you get when you do a treatment

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. A lot! I know I've been blogging a lot about the hair removal services that Ideal Image offers, but Ideal Image actually offers many, many services beyond hair removal. From tattoo removal to anti aging treatments, Ideal Image offers it all. I don't have a single tattoo on my body, but it isn't for lack of desire; it's because I am afraid, and yes, I'm a chicken. But if I did have a tattoo, Continue Reading

I Refuse To Tip For Bad Service

Receipt from TGIF, refused to tiip

It was only when I came to America that I knew about by-force tipping. In Nigeria, I remember my parents tipping, but it was more something that was expected from supposed "Big Men" and "Big Women," not just from everyone. Sometimes, they (the people giving the service) would stylishly ask for a tip, like they'd say something like, "Oga, anything for me?" But in America, when you go to a restaurant, you're expected to tip. Your receipt even shows you the suggested gratuity, based on the amount Continue Reading

Ladies, Let’s Talk About Facial Hair

Jolen-2

I know everyone has hair on their face - technically - but there are levels to the hair, and I'm not talking about facial hair on men's faces. You know, hair (on all parts of the body) is something that I blog about often, so this shouldn't be new. Unwanted hair, unfortunately, is a thing. I don't have unwanted hair on my face because I barely have hair anywhere. And that's why the hair on my head isn't long or full either. I just don't have it. I know people do different things to get rid Continue Reading

Why I Chose Ideal Image Laser Hair Removal

These are used for the actual treatment.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ideal Image. All opinions are 100% mine. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you're really, really late. But fear not, I am here to update you. I recently got my first laser treatment from Ideal Image about 3 weeks ago. It was my first time ever getting a laser treatment. I did it at Ideal Image located in Towson. It was an experience. A good one. Like I mentioned in my recap post, all treatments are administered by Registered Continue Reading

Dear Monica Lewinsky, About You Being Cyber-Bullied … Nah Uh.

Monica-Lewinsky-at-Forbes-30-Under-30-Seminar

Nah Uh. Nope. No. Net. Nahīṁ.  Mba. Monica Lewinsky who has been silent since the scandal 16 years ago (except her recent feature in Vanity Fair, which of course, I also blogged about). She was at the 30 Under 30 Summit held at Forbes in Philadelphia two days ago giving her first speech, and of all things to talk about, she chose cyber-bullying because according to her, she was Patient Zero, the first victim of cyber-bullying. Let's talk about some of her talking points. 1.  "Sixteen Continue Reading
