You Were Smaller When We First Met!

How do you tell your partner “You have gotten too fat”? They usually know they have gained way too much weight and have either accepted it or become depressed so tread lightly.

Instead, you ask them to work out with you at the gym. Better yet take long walks with the love of your life. Long walks are a good way to spend quality time together. Get a cook book on how to prepare heather meals.

If a trainer fits your budget, hire one that will train you as a couple. The last thing you want is for your partner to become unattached to you because of excess weight gain. But if they met you already juicy and plump then you shouldn’t have any issues.

If your health becomes affected as a result of your weight then you have an entire different issue.
I never imagined in my life that my weight would be an issue and it is a battle every day.

Men usually have no issues with my new-found plumpness but I do!

I think before I eat, try to be consistent in the gym and refuse to buy larger clothes.
The stair master is a huge challenge but I feel accomplished after 15 minutes on that beast of a machine. My goal is work out for 30 minutes on the stair master and I am half way there!
Doesn’t matter if I ever lose another inch what matter is my HEALTH.

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge
Place your right hand over your heart and repeat after me:

As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules
when I wear sandals and other open-toe shoes:

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the
sides and tops of my feet will not protrude out between the straps.

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free. I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe. I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.

I will shave the hairs off my big toe.

I won’t wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker,
mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.

If a strap breaks, I won’t duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl’s if my feet need him.

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids’ sizes This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell
and begin to look like Vienna sausages. If I have been privy to the magic that is Foot Soup; I will share that knowledge and experience with the non-initiated.

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend / sister / coworker when
she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.

I will promise to go my local beauty school at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $20 and worth EVERY penny).

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear…nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

What Makes You Pretty?

You are beautiful and smart with so many things that set you apart.
There will always be someone prettier or smarter than you are based on a person’s standards that don’t really matter.

What matters is if you think you are prettier or smarter than the next and you should NEVER compare yourself to others EVER!

You are unique; there is only one of you so refuse to be a copy!
People are mean and will call you ugly because they are shallow and rotten in the inside. Your spirit is what makes you beautiful…your strength, character and confidence makes you attractive.

Don’t allow society to dictate to your reflection what true beauty is…its how you feel about yourself and how you treat others is what makes you pretty.

Are You Hot or Not?

Always remember this, believe half of what you are told and question the half you believe. People tell you whatever you want to hear when they have an agenda. I see both men and women acting like they can walk on water because so many people have told them how cute, sexy, pretty, handsome, fine or beautiful they are.

 Understand this, there is always someone who looks better than you and this is not to say “compare” yourself to others. Comparing yourself to others is not healthy and really shows you are inferior because more than likely the person you are comparing yourself to isn’t thinking about you or your insecurities you deny having.

 If you actually waste your energy to “compare” yourself to another person to make yourself feel better you are actually extremely insecure. Funny how the most beautiful people are the most insecure and the people who are viewed by society as less attractive have the most confidence.

 However, put things into perspective and bringing your arrogance down a few notches so that you make a soft landing on confidence instead is good for the soul and everyone around you. What really matters is if you think you are ugly not that others think you are. Besides why should you care what others think about your appearance?

There is somebody for everybody. If you are insecure know that God does not make junk or mistakes and beauty starts within beauty can fade but confidence can last a lifetime.


Stubble free soft & sexy legs!

Lightly glaze your legs and underarms with conditioner

Use a nice razor preferably not the cheap ones since they can cause nasty cuts. *** I love Venus Razors

Make sure your hands are not covered with conditioner before you start shaving 🙂

Shave as usual but you must rinse the razor in COLD water! Honest you will get the closest best shave ever!

Your legs will feel smooth as a baby’s bottom. Hot water or warm makes the razor soft and it expands whereas cold water makes it contract therefore it remains sharp.

Good Luck!

Skin Care Tips

Beauty starts with lots of H20 and keeping your FACE Clean. When you hear the phrase “beauty starts within” the first thing that comes to mind is a person’s disposition.

  Well, let’s just say that is a good start however, I will be discussing keeping your insides healthy in order to radiate beauty on the outside from a physical aspect. 

Acne is a skin infection but at the same time what can we do to counteract or lesson the appearance of the lesions? I suffer from acne and you would never know until I have a break out from excessive stress, not drinking enough water or eating too much garbage foods.

 Most importantly, we must cleanse our skin to remove embedded dirt and if you wear make-up it will take extra efforts.

 While in the shower the steam will open the pores, which is a great way to release most trapped oil, dirt and make-up. The key is developing a system that works best for your skin. What works for someone else may not work for you so trying different things may be a hassle but until you find what works you may have to keep searching.

 There are lots of women who have a million small little bumps that resemble a rash on their face that is amplified when makeup is applied. This may be an allergic reaction to the make up or a cleanser you are using. Try to use a soap free cleanser CVS sells a great one in a pump bottle. After cleansing your face, apply hydrocortisone (lightly) I recommend the cream since the ointment is too greasy. After a few days the bumps should start to diminish and you should stop the application of the cortisone but continue to cleanse your skin.

 Keep your hands out of your face since you touch objects all day. Another key is to keep the screen of your phone clean. I use a tissue and very little hand sanitizer to clean my phone 3 times a week minimum. A dirty phone held up to your face and touching your face with dirty hands will irritate your skin and cause a break out as well.

 Lastly, change your pillow cases regularly! More to come stay tuned! Remember to drink plenty of water…



False Nails Gone Bad

There is nothing wrong with false nails if you keep them clean and at a reasonable length. Some are shaped like a sharp knife, super thick or look like they can be used as a mini shovel. The worst is when you see the dirt embedded under or stuck between where the false nail and real nail meet. The super long claws with those crazy flamboyant colors is a clear indicator of someone wanting to be “noticed”. My nail tech talked me into getting one finger dazzled up since all ten done up with a design would have made me dizzy. I couldn’t keep my eyes off that one obnoxious design that I went back the next day to have it removed. I wear active length solid colors and that works fine and keep my nails grime free. Besides how in the heck can you wash your personal parts or wipe your backside after a dump when you have claws for nails? Never mind I will make my own sandwich but thanks for offering.

Why Is She Scratching Her Scalp Like That!?

The truth of the matter is that many, NOT ALL, women who wear a weave or braids don’t wash their hair at all or not enough. Sounds gross and some may even get offended but I don’t give a rat’s buttocks because you are nasty!

When I wore a weave my stylist washed and styled it as if it were my very own hair. Washing caused my weave to become loose but she was there with her needle and thread to tighten it up. One thing for sure my scalp, hair and the weave was squeaky clean. There are too many times on the metro women with braids are digging into their hair, examining the dirt removed from the scalp then tossing it. If you are close enough you may be grossed out even more from a nasty sour smelling aroma that smacks you in the nose.

Now if that is not enough to be considered dirty what is? The patting on the head that turns into loud pounding is very disturbing when all you have to do is wash your hair. Dry scalp may be the cause as well however you can fix that too with oil or dandruff shampoo. If that doesn’t work visit your dermatologist.

Everybody’s scalp will itch that’s normal. I just hate to “hear” then look and see someone digging for days that’s just nasty. I don’t know, maybe the long metro ride is boring so what else is there to do besides read a book, listen to music or time how long someone scratches their weave.

I always wondered if they made their scalp bleed.

False Lashes

Not everyone is born with beautiful long lashes…what a bummer!!! The downside to this new eyelash craze is that “most” of them are starting to resemble bat wings instead of long beautiful lashes. I have seen false lashes applied that looked GREAT!! However, if I see your lashes before I have a chance to focus on your face ummmm? That’s not a good look. I wear false lashes myself and pay a pretty penny to have them applied correctly and with taste.
If your tech is using the glue they use to attach tracks (weaves) to a scalp run as fast as you can!!! If you can’t afford to pay to have the lashes that are “official ” don’t opt for the ghetto bat wings. Just save your change to have lashes applied correctly or leave it alone.
Besides men really hate false lashes when they look tacky and laugh behind your back…Females too!
Michelle Obama wears false lashes do you see her lashes looking all crazy??? No! Enough said…
