Some of us spend so much time caring and doing for others. Never its it a bad thing!

Here are 10 reasons why you're so ...

Bucket List: To be In Love & 2 Reasons Why

Posted on March 3, 2017 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (14)


I got asked a few weeks ago about what I had on my bucket list. I really didn’t have an answer. As much as I run my mouth I had absolutely nothing to say to that. I’ve heard of the movie, I’ve heard a lot of people talk about their bucket list but I didn’t think of my own. When I thought about it I had one thing come to mind. One thing that is for sure that I want to accomplish in this life is falling in lo...

5 Ways to Slay 2017

Posted on January 2, 2017 at 10:40 AM Comments comments (1)


It seems like 2016 sucked for a lot of people. Myself included. One of the reasons why is because this is the first full year without my mother (she passed August 2015), I didn’t get to see any of my family this year due to work conflict, training, and there were the normal setbacks that life throws at you. Nonetheless, I did have some pretty awesome things happen. I was blessed with a pre...

5 earthly occurrences that may cause us to lose our faith

Posted on October 30, 2016 at 1:45 AM Comments comments (0)

There are a lot of us out here that believe in different deities and live our lives closest to that doctrine as possible. No matter what spiritual or religious path you may (may not) take you have a little something called faith. When we have it, it goes a long way. But when life happens, it throws us off our game! This is when we need God the most. These are 5 earthly occurrences that may cause us to lose our faith.

1. Our relationships fail No matter how BITTER a person is we...

3, 5, 7! I did't know my legs could stretch that far!

Posted on June 6, 2016 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)


As a current Greenville, NC resident (and business owner)I try to make sure that I attend events in the city to learn what's going on and who's doing what. At the Pitt County Business Expo, I came across a booth for the Stretch Zone. I notice their logo while driving towards the mall from time to time but never went in. Since I had one of the reps, Eric, in arms reach I took the opportunity to get the scoop on what the Stre...

My Favorite Rewatched Shows

Posted on May 23, 2016 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (3)


I love to watch a lot of cartoons (don't judge me. I know I'm grown!) If I watch a show with real live people in it, it has to 1) Show/teach me something new/interesting and 2) Be funny.

I came across funny back in 2012 when I was preparing to deploy with the 436th TC BN (unit is based out of Staten Island, NY) out of Ft. Hood, TX. Even though the show aired back when I was in high ...

My 5 year plan

Posted on May 9, 2016 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (1)


Lets face, we all know time waits for no woman (or man for my male readers lol). Who wants to turn around and look dead in the mirror at 50 or 60 and say "****! I haven't done one thing with my life!" Can you imagine how horrible that feeling might be? To just float through life without ever finding your 'purpose"? Needless to say, I've thought about it. Long and hard too (<-- get your mind out of the gutter!) However, all jo...

Ok, I am not 30 yet (nor am I that far from it either) but it trips me out how many 20 something year old folks don't know what they should!

If its in the list its because I actually KNOW someone who didn't know or have these things. Comment below if you knew or didn't know some of these th...

Is you is or is you ain't my baby?

Posted on April 25, 2016 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (6)

Let us be real for a second. All of us know one person (rather it be you or someone else) who has been with a married person. Grant it there are some innocent ones who are approached as if the initiating party was single. I'm not talking about them. I'm talking about the ones who know that the person they are messing with is in a full-blown marriage. Wife/husband, kids, 4 bedroom...

How to keep the box polished (Giveaway inside)

Posted on April 18, 2016 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (8)

If any of you divas and dolls are anything like me then we both HATE hair on our vaginas. For a better term I prefer to use the word "box" when speaking about my tidy cat. What kind of special names do you call your kitties? 

To combat the amazon forest that tries to take over my box, I like to do a little landscaping to keep the box polished (see what I did there?). Do you have a problem with ingrown hairs? If not, may the good Lord cont...

She wasn't in the front row

Posted on December 10, 2015 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Every time I had visions or dreams about my marriage (not married, just wishful thinking), I never see my mother there. I would talk about what she would do, what she would wear, and what she would say but it would always be some what of a forced presence of her there. 

My mother has had a ski slope of health issues over the years and as I got older every time she came from the doctors she would say "The doctor said my heart is doing better!". Then I'd get excited and relieved beca...
