Desire that never sleeps seldom gets a good nights rest…Restlessly tossing and turning waiting for the initiation with only one thought on the mind… I wanna explode!!!

I wanna flood the surface of passion and emerge myself in the depths of fantasy…

Please me beyond satisfaction…

Any clothing is a distraction…

I’m only here for one thing.

Previous conversations have already set the stage for an anticipated display of pure pleasure so I’m eagerly waiting to begin…

Completely saturated before the foreplay even began, I’m more than ready…

Licking it, sucking it, please don’t tease me any longer…

I can feel it throb.

No doubt that I enjoy the luxury of my choice to explore without attachment…

The freedom to employ any opportunity equally without care or shame… 

But… I just have one question before you enter me…

Do you have a condom?

*Safe sex should never be optional. Protect yourself friends! Then be as freaky as you wanna!!! 😊😘

BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!If this statement offends you in any way,

Please give me the honor and privilege to illuminate the facts.

You see, before you can assume a movement is offensive, you have to be willing to crawl beneath the surface of hate and gain knowledge of the truth and accept it.

Yes it’s true that ALL LIVES MATTER, but are “all” lives in danger of being executed by the police at any given second dependent upon which cop is on duty? 

Do “all” lives have to be publicly televised mourning the death of a loved one due to the impulsive, carefree actions of those expected to protect and serve? 

Have “all” lives witnessed the evolution of oppression and hate that breeds behind a badge of a corrupt soul that has no plan for equality or unity?

Is it common for “all” lives to feel that hateful state of mind that kept a race obsolete for centuries is being resurrected within the minds of those that’ve taken on the task of securing our freedom? Oops, I meant safety???

So again… 

ALL LIVES MATTER… But… 

BLACK LIVES MATTER! BLACK LIVES MATTER! BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!!!!!!

And I’ll scream it from the hills to the hood, because while all lives matter, BLACK lives are being exterminated…

BLACK lives are being devalued, neglected, and stolen from their families more than any life that does and should matter. 

But the question that plagues the families of the victims, the supporters, and the protestors still remain… 

When will any of it matter? 

When will it matter enough for change to finally take place? 

How many executions have to be televised before a revolution is realized? 

The fact is we are on a path toward social and civil destruction and the only remedies are accountability, justice, equality, and understanding that BLACK LIVES MATTER!

So I almost never post pics of myself on my blog… No particular reason… But I love, love, love this lace t-shirt dress I came across! Not only is it comfy, the lace and length still make it sexy. Not to mention the words, “When Was The Last Time”, not only makes the dress intriguing, it makes the person wearing it that much more interesting. Trust me… It was a definite conversation starter last night… Lol! Besides, there’s a million and one reasons to ask yourself or someone else “When was the last time?”. There’s a last time for everything! The answers and possibilities are endless! What do you guys think about apparel that literally makes a statement? Do you think it takes confidence to pull off or perhaps, does it create confidence by others reaction?

When the weather begins to change, so does your skin and that includes the skin on your lips my friends. So, here’s a quick little sugar exfoliant/scrub to give those lips a little TLC. This sweet concoction will have your lips feeling smooth and ready for any type of lip service. 😉 Not only does this soften your lips, it helps prevent them from being chapped because of a splash of a simple ingredient which adds and retains moisture. You’ll even notice how much easier you lipstick/gloss glides on. This sugary lip therapy is a sure way to pout perfection.

So here’s what you’ll need:

*About 2 Tbsp of sugar
*2-3 tsp of honey
*just a splash of extra virgin olive oil

Mix all ingredients to a thick, sticky, grainy consistency. Apply mixture to clean dry lips and let sit for about a minute or so. Next, gently rub back and forth with either your finger or a damp wash cloth. Rinse with cool water, blot dry and apply your favorite balm, gloss, or lip stick. My favorite lip moisturizer hands down is “Baby Lips” by Maybelline in “Berry Bomb”. It’s feels amazing on your lips and gives the cutest translucent purple hue just perfect for fall.

Every woman on the planet all have the same concerns when it comes to acquiring and maintaining a gorgeous mane. There a million products that proclaim the promotion of strong healthy tresses which are offered almost everywhere from local beauty supply stores, to expensive salon services. Not to discredit anyone’s store brought hair remedies or the actual positive results that may come from usage but, why spend money on ridiculously priced hair therapies and treatments when all you need is right in your own kitchen…

Now, I am no hair guru by far and I’ve had plenty of experiences where I believed the Hair God’s were punishing me with eternal breakage and constant damage but, since I’ve recently vowed to care for my hair, I did a little research for more natural ingredients and alternatives that ensure hair bliss. What I’ve come to realize is the most important step in repairing dry undernourished hair is incorporating a deep conditioning regimen. Once a week I mix up a few simple ingredients to make my own deep conditioner and after only three weeks, I already notice a positive change in the health of my hair. Here’s what I use…

*Cream of Natures Argon Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment – I absolutely adore this conditioner! This stuff is my miracle in a bottle! It can actually stand alone without any other added ingredients but I choose to rev it up. (You can substitute with your own personal favorite conditioner)

*1 egg– The incredible edible egg is most important in my deep conditioning mix. The amount of protein in one egg can create an intense protein treatment. The protein in eggs help rebuild and strengthen damaged hair. Being as though hair is composed of 70% keratin protein, the egg protein fills in the gaps and help restore and repair damages. Not only will you have stronger hair that’s less prone to breakage, that added protein is essential for hair growth.

*1 tsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil– Olive oil (just a very small amount) will give your hair a healthy weightless glow. The addition of this essential oil is sure to give life and add moisture and shine to lack luster hair.

I mix all three ingredients and apply to my freshly washed and towel dried hair. You can leave this in for as little as 20 minutes or an hour. I usually leave mine in while I’m writing or just doing chores around the house. The longer it sits the better. Well thats what I like to believe… Lol. I then rinse with luke warm to cool water, style accordingly, and VIOLA!!! Revitalized hair!!!

Happy Conditioning Folks… Enjoy!

I don’t know about you guys but, my most anticipated time of the year is… Drum roll please… FALL!!!!! Yes ladies and gents, time to go to the mall to shop for the latest season appropriate attire, move your boots and jackets to the front of your closets, and make that trip to whatever storage area you utilize to resurrect your must have fall pieces. That feeling of unveiling your favorite distressed denim jacket (which you swore you lost or was stolen) can be euphoric if you love fashion as much as I. But it doesn’t just stop at fashion for fall. The new colors and shades that are deemed essential for your lips and nails are always boldly amazing. With that being said, let me show you just a couple of fall worthy trends that I absolutely adore.

Distressed is Best

Whether it’s a jacket, shirt, or bottoms, denim in my eyes is thee Holy Grail of fashion. It can be dressed up or down, and the shades and washes are endless. One of my personal favorites are the distressed denims. The rips paired with the rugged worn look create an edgy look that can serve as the foundation to serve simple chic! Check these out…

No Shade to Leather and Suede

Two very vital textiles for the fall have to be leather and suede. I mean seriously, who doesn’t love a leather or suede jacket or blazer that fits as if it was specifically made for you. Not to mention, when it comes to fabulous fall footwear such as peep toe and ankle booties, sexy knee or thigh high boots, or even that trusty pointed toe pump, leather and suede always reign supreme. Oh and ladies, if you can get your hands on a leather or suede pencil skirt, God loves you and you should be oh so grateful. Also don’t be afraid to go bold with your color and texture selection. Nothing screams fabulous more than a turquoise snakeskin peep toe bootie. Here are a few options/ideas…

Nail that Pout!

Another reason I can’t get enough of fall is the beautiful deep pallets offered that can automatically give life to your pout and nails. Nothing screams confidence and “I got my shit together” like a bold lip and flawless nails to match. Along with your faithful, traditional nude pallet, berries, purples, browns, oranges, and reds are beautiful daring fall shades to add to your collection. Here are a few shades I must have or do have…

*Nik Fact

Now now… fall is the season when the truth starts to wiggle its way out. It’s easy and beyond affordable to ball so hard in the summer season ladies when you’re buying ten dresses for $100 made of 90% spandex and 10% lycra, but when the weather changes to full length jacket prices and quality is favored, I’m sure those Instagram pictures will gradually decline. Gents, watch your faux video vixen magically turn into your below average mediocre. Not to say you can’t bargain shop or find great prices for amazing fall attire but, usually the thrifty, summer loving chicks don’t have a clue where those deals are.

I used to dream about being married and raising a family: Two boys and one girl to be exact. We would live comfortably in a beautiful home where we would be safe and just like a fairy tale, live happily ever after. It’s almost a little selfish to admit but, my dream will never be realized. The way the world is right now, chances are I’ll end up with what I already have. .. Just my daughter and I. Smh… This world has gone absolutely insane so I’ll just say what’s exactly on my mind, straight and to the point without the sugar coating…

I REFUSE TO GIVE BIRTH TO A BEAUTIFUL BROWN BABY BOY AND HAVE HIM TAKEN AWAY FROM ME DAYS BEFORE HE GOES AWAY TO COLLEGE!!!!!! I want my king to be able to excel as high as the heavens without fear of being shot and killed before his full potential has even began to flourish. I don’t want to bury my child over senseless violence which can’t be reconciled or explained. It sickens me to witness this kind of slaughter especially by way of “law enforcement”. Is this what serving and protecting consists of? NO REGRET, NO REMORSE, NO REPERCUSSIONS, NO RECOURSE, and NO RIGHT to be so damn corrupt! It rips my heart apart to even imagine the level of sorrow these families are going through. My hat and heart goes out to the mothers that are strong enough to endure such tragedies but, honestly I don’t think I possess that super power these women have been forced to acquire. And before everyone gets all self righteous and judgmental, No… I am not a pessimist. Far from it actually… All you have to do is turn on the news at any given hour, pick up your local newspaper, goggle the latest breaking news, or even check your social media. Then you’ll see that I’m a realist that lives in fear of reality. It’s my own opinion and I know many may disagree but, everybody needs a little honesty sometime. I’m not saying this is how I’ll feel forever… It’s just how I’ve been feeling lately. Until a solution is found to end this apparent genocide, my dreams of having a big family are indefinitely on hold.

*Thanks for allowing me to vent out that bit of rage in me. These recent tragedies that are depleting our families and our race have really taken a toll on my mind and my heart. I could blog about this topic forever but I’ll leave it be for now because it’s such a sensitive issue not only to learn about but to speak about as well. I feel a little better now that I got some of it off of my chest*
