Support Black Businesses....Yeah Right!

Before anyone get all in their feelings....this was written after having many conversations with other small black business owners who feel the way they do about getting the support from friends,family,etc.

A few days ago I had a conversation with a small business owner who feels like she's not getting the support that she thought she would..especially from people she know and family. She also pointed out that the ones that show support, always want a discount or try to get it free. 

One day she went into her website email list and checked her list of order contacts, she had about 20 orders for the month. She went on her Facebook fan page and checked her reviews, well 15 of those reviews were Caucasian and the other 5 were African American. She became discouraged and sent out an email to her customers that she will be closing her online shop. Those customers that she has build a relationship with still put in order request and of course she give them the best service. 

I asked her to explain why she would close her online shop instead of leaving it open and this is what she had to say..."I didn't close my shop because of who was supporting me, I closed my shop because the ones that said I'll show my support and share your fan page and give out business cards, never did any of that. But those same ones want free samples or a discount...those same ones post their new Jordans, Gucci & LV bags, and new cars, so why do they need a discount from me when they are supporting millionaires?"...I had to sit quiet for a minute because I also experienced this and it can be hurtful, so I know her frustration.

Let me put my two cents in this..

There's a lot I can say about this but I'll keep it short, I feel that the ones that are shouting support black businesses..and they're not practicing what they preach...please be quiet. I can't tell anyone who to support, just be mindful to those who are trying to get their business out there, it takes time and money, sweat & tears, research & long hours of building a website. Entrepreneurs are sensitive about their hard work.

Dear Entrepreneurs,

I know having lack of support can be frustrating at times but please keep networking and keep doing what you love...the right supporters will come along and within time you will thrive! Never give up!

Bath & Body Works New Scents...

I know some of us get excited when B&BW drop their new collections, I know I do! 

Before you get excited check the labels and compare keynotes with other scents in the store, who wants to buy the same scent just in a different package?! Well all know that B&BW do that a lot. Let's hope the new scents are really new scents.

Some stores in your area may have them out and some are dropping 12/8/16..

Here is a list of scents that are due to come out.

So far Cocktail Dress and Pink Confetti are my faves.

Prepping For Thanksgiving Dinner & Recipe

We all know that doing last minute Thanksgiving shopping is a no no, by now you should have at least half of your ingredients. 

As for myself...I like to get started early. I look for the best deals and I make my grocery list of everything that I need. In my household Mac n Cheese is more important than the turkey..I kid you not! So this year my list is simple.

My List:
6 bags of shredded sharp cheese
4 boxes of elbow macaroni
Pot Roast
Chicken Thighs & Legs
Yams (sweet potato pie)
Collard Greens

That's just to get started...I already have my seasonings, so I'm good in that department. 

What's On Your List? 

My Bangin' Mac n Cheese Recipe
Elbow Macaroni
Shredded & Block Cheese

Cook macaroni until it's half done..
Get a sauce pan and add your milk, when the milk starts to get hot add all of your cheese and margarine and stir until all the cheese is melted and it's creamy.
Take your macaroni and add it to your baking pan, pour the cheese over the macaroni..stir it up, (you can also add more cheese with the macaroni to make it cheesier) cover the pan and put it in the oven for 45 minutes (covered)...another 15 uncovered. The top should have a nice brown layer, take it out and enjoy!

I know this was a super fast recipe run through but I will post a video on my channel.

I wish you all a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!

Creamy Dreamy Mac & Cheese (Crock Pot Edition)

As kids we all grew up on macaroni & didn't matter if it was boxed or mama's homemade mac & cheese, that's a dish all kids like..oh wait now..adults too!

I use to love the way my granny and mom made mac & was cheesy and flavorful..just heavnly goodness! As I became an adult and started cooking..Mac & Cheese as a dish I had to make for holidays and birthdays...yes you read it right birthdays. It got to the point where I didn't want to make it anymore because I was tired of looking a it! Now that the weather is cooling down again, I thought of a new way to take my mac & cheese to the next level!

It's simple and crockpot friendly!

(You can tweek these ingredients to make it your own)

1 box of Macaroni
1lb of sharp cheese
1lb of mild cheese
1 bag of shredded cheese (sharp and mozarella)
1 can of cream of chicken (optional)
2 medium slices of margarine

Boil your macaroni with the magarine for 3 mins (Aldente), drain your macaroni and rinse in cold water..(this stops the cooking process)
Make sure all your block cheese are cut into medium squares or your preference.
Add the macaroni in the crockpot, cream of chicken,block cheese and stir and the last the step is add the shredded cheese on top.
Cover the crockpot and set on high for 2 hours and medium for another hour.

Pinterest Inspired Meal: Drama In The Pot Chicken Dinner

I was on Pinterest searching for some different recipes to try and I came across quite a few. I pinned the ones that looked really interesting and inexpensive to try. 

You don't have to copy the recipe all the way....just add your finishing touches and call it your own. I changed up some of the ingredients and gave it a new name. 

All you need for this dinner:
Chicken (any part or whole)
4 medium golden potatoes 
(depending on family size)
1 bowl of baby carrots 
Curry, Garlic, Onion Powder
Chicken Powder

Wash and cut your potatoes the way you want to. Get a bowl and add baby carrots to fill up the bowl. In a different bowl, take your potatoes and put them in there...season them with curry and garlic powder...give it a good stir. Add your cleaned chicken to the crockpot and season it thoroughly, sprinkle chicken powder on top and add a 1/2 cup of water. 
Add your carrots and potatoes on top of the chicken and let the crockpot work it's magic.

This meal can cook overnight on Saturday and wake up to Sunday dinner. 

Try'll love it!

Clip & Print Those Coupons!

You would be surprised how much money you can save by clipping & printing coupons. 

My printer burned out and I had to buy another one, so glad I did...I missed clipping my coupons. 

Today I printed out some coupons from 3 different websites:

They have some great coupons!

If you have a big family and want to stretch your dollars, well get to clipping and printing those coupons.

Every litle bit helps!

Youtube Changes....Good or Bad?

Yesterday Twitter went crazy about the new changes that are being made on YouTube. How will that affect us? If you create videos and upload them to YouTube, there are some things you must know.
Beware of what kind of content you are putting up.
Make sure you have appropriate language. ..meaning no swearing or nudity. ..anything sexual. If your videos have all of those that I mentioned, you will not be able to monetize your videos and make money off it...which l don't care because I don't get checks from YouTube anyway!

Some videos are already started to get flagged and monetization are taken away.

Is this a good or bad thing? In my opinion it's both...the good thing is maybe some of the nonsense will stop but the bad thing is people feel like they're being stifled and freedom of speech is being taken away. They already flagged so many Black Lives Matter Movement videos but still running the other videos...smh.

My question is...Why now? What's really going on?

Keep your eyes and ears more research.

Back To School!

Omg..the time is finally here and I and ready for it! The summer was good but school time is better.
I know some parents are lik..girl, are you crazy?! Maybe a little but I'm ready to have my house back!

Preparing for back to school can be hectic, but it smoothes out during the weeks. I think the first month is filled with madness. There's a lot money being spent on supplies,backpacks,lunch money and the list goes on!

I can finally say that for my 4th grader the supplies didn't break the bank but we had some bus issues...that are now straightened out. He's so excited about school and that makes me feel good. My freshman in High School...each binder costed $10.99 and he neded two of them and the list of all the supplies he needed for his classes, I can say he broke the bank this time around.

I love to see my kids happy about school. every year leads into a different and I want them to get the most out of their education, so that they know that this is what you need to build your future. It is also imporant to have reading time and extra work acivities on the weekend, given by the paren o help keep their brain functioning.

I hope all the parents, children, and teachers have a wonderful school year!

Parents...if you can, join the P.T.A...check wih your childs school and see what they are offering. I use to be a PTA mom and I enjoyed it.

VH1 HIP HONORS. ..All Hail The Queens

This is not going to be long...short and sweet!

I think they could've done a lot better promoting it and putting it together. I also think that Mc Lyte and YoYo should've been up on the honoring panel as well.  Don't get me wrong, Lil Kim and Missy have every right to be honored...they have paved the way for the younger generation. I think they should've been grouped with later 90s artist and Queen Latifah with older 80s-90s group.

Overall it was ok....Im glad they finally got honored. I feel like when it come to the women things get a little rushed.

Light Lunch/Dinner Meal...

This meal is great for anyone especially those that are on a weight loss journey.
It's quick &simple.

Ground Turkey & Mixed Vegetables

Depending on how many you're feeding, cook 1-2 lbs of ground Turkey..make sure it's cooked well done.
Cook a bag of mixed vegetables in a separate pot. Make sure to cook them half way done.
Once that's done...pour the vegetables in the same pot with the ground turkey, cover and cook on low for 15-20 mins. Season to your liking.

To keep it healthy..serve over brown rice. It also taste great over yellow rice.

Bath & Body Works Products

I've always been a B&BW addict since the 90s. The sales were always great and the product was excellent. As time go on things started to change... some changes are good and some are bad, it depends.

Last year I started noticing that some products that were sold during winter, were also being repackaged and sold for spring. I'm not saying they haven't made any new products because they have and some were ok. I'm like change but I love my retro scents. Cherry Blossom,  Juniper Breeze, Amber Blush and the list goes on. I was happy when they brought back Cool Coconut Surf, I just love that scent.

Let's compare Cool Coconut Surf and Hawaii Coconut Water &Pineapple. To me they smell the same...when I couldn't find anymore of the cool coconut surf, I racked up on the Hawaii Coconut Water & Pineapple and was content. I guess anything you make with Coconut is going to have that identical scent.

The latest product I bought from B&BW is the Sparkling Limoncello body cream and spray... and let me tell you, it smell so good. The lemon scent perks you up and it's not overpowering. I would definitely recommend anyone to try it.

The best time for me to shop at Bath and Body Works is the Semi Annual Sale..I can really do some serious damage! I feel like I can get more for my buck and the use of coupons makes my shopping fun.

I'm not bashing or telling anyone not to shop there...just pay close attention to what you're buying because you don't want to repurchase scents that you already have.

Love Your Curves!

I hate the fact that some people look down on plus size or curvaceous women... why is that?! I guess we have to show our ribs to be sexy...ha whatever!

I will not starve myself to please others or to be accepted. Being curvy or plus size doesn't mean we are fat and unhealthy, some of us have hips that'll make ya flip Lol...or a lot of cake that we can't shake. 

Did you know that a size 10 is considered Plus Size...really?! I guess because it's a double digit. I know for a fact that if I went down to a size 10 I would look like a crack head, so I'll pass! The biggest size I've ever worn was I'm between a 14-16.

I'm on a journey to lose weight because I feel heavy, but I'm doing it for me. If I can stay at a size 14 I'll be happy. I'll still be a plus size woman, just with toner curves.

To all my plus size sistas..
Do what makes you happy!
Keep struting your stuff!

Janet Jackson Pregnant...

Congratulations are in order... Janet Jackson is carrying her first child. A few months ago fans were angry that she cancelled her tour because she wanted to start a family with her husband.

Janet Jackson has always been in great shape and took care of herself well, but is it safe to have a child at the age of 50?...It becomes a high risk pregnancy over 35, that's what the doctors say anyway.
I think she's going to have a safe and wonderful pregnancy, she has the money to have a team of doctors keep an eye on her and give her the best care.
I wish her and hubby well. I can't wait to find out the sex of the baby and see what he or she look like. I'm happy for them and Micheal would too if he was still with us.

Prince...The Legend

I'm going to keep this short and sweet.
I'm still devastated by his doesn't seem real. Prince has left this earth too soon, he still had more to give to us. He was a musical genius... everything he touched turned gold.

Even though Prince is not here in his physical form, he's here spiritually and his music lives within us. He was always comfortable in his skin and never tried to fit in with anyone.

Prince you will forever be missed!

My Natural Hair Journey...A New Attitiude

I finally decided to step back into the natural hair world. I've been down this road before so I know what I'm getting myself into.

Becoming natural is journey mentally. The reason why it's a journey mentally..I feel that corporate america doesn't accept the natural look. They prefer a woman hair that's straight and flowing..well not all of us have that, even in the natural hair community not all of us have curly hair or as some would say mixed hair. 

As the years go by more and more women are rocking their natural hair in corporate america and I think that's wonderful!

Now let's talk about the journey....some women would a big chop and some would transition from relaxed hair into natural hair, I'm one of them. I was natural for 3 years and my hair was so healthy and pretty, but I wasn't comfortable because big curly hair was being advertised more and I also felt like I didn't have a connection with the natural hair world. I became frustrated, I went to the hair dresser got a relaxer and cut off all my hair. Yep sure did! Lol...Do I regret it? Yes, if I would've took the time to really think about it and  researched more about protective styles and products..I would still be natural today.

I'm ready to take on this journey again and embrace it. Once again, I'm going to transition from relaxed hair to natural hair, no big chop. Over the years things has changed and more and more women with MY type of hair are rocking it and I'm so happy to see that! 
I don't have soft curly hair...I have KINKY hair and I'm proud of it! My mom was proud of her hair and I will be proud of mine,,,and even though she's not here on this earth..she is my inspiration and that's all I need.

I would love to see more little girls and women rock their natural's beautiful and it's yours..EMBRACE IT!

Love your KINKS..who cares what anyone THINKS!

Pajamas In Public...

My mom taught my siblings and I to always look decent because you never know what could happen. So I took that advice into my adulthood and taught my children the same thing.

These days it seems to be a trend to wear pajamas outside. How can anyone be comfortable wearing pajamas and a bonnet to Walmart, grocery stores, etc.. I've seen women pick up their children from school looking like they just crawled out of bed. 

I think there's a time and place for things and pajamas in public is not the place. 

I never forget the day I saw a woman walk into Walmart with a night gown on with her head tiep up, flip flops and draped in jewelry 👀👀👀 really?! Smh.

I will say this...this trend is unacceptable and it have to stop. 
I'm not saying you have to be dressed to kill to come outside, just look decent and leave the pajama wear at home. Your kids are watching what you do and if they see you outside in pajamas they think it's ok to do the same thing. It's not cute, it's ridiculous. 

Replace the pjs with a pair of jeans and a tshirt and replace the bonnet with a fitted cap....that's better than a night gown or pajama set. 

What are your thoughts about pajamas in public?

The Walking Dead Season 6 Finale....Negan

I'm not going to make this long, let's just get right to it.

Ok.... my vision of Negan wasn't what I expected to see on last night's episode. The person they cast to play Negan is too clean cut... I was expecting some rough looking almost fat ugly kinda guy, not a rough voice guy. Even though he was in the zone and played his part well...I still think they could've found someone more dark and scruffy.

This episode drove me insane! The whistling was creepy. The zombies with pieces of the crew on them was interesting.

So much was going on and it felt rushed. I feel like they were rushing to build us it but it left some of us disappointed with the ending.

I' m definitely watching Season 7 to see how this plays out.

What are your thoughts?
Who do you think died at the end?

Wonder Woman Makeup Collection..

A friend of mine posted a picture of the Wonder Woman Makeup Collection that's coming out in May of 2016 and will be available at Walgreen's.

I don't wear makeup but that's one collection I would definitely buy because I am a Wonder Woman fan!
I use to watch Wonder Woman as a kid, am I telling my age? Lol...

Here is a picture of the flyer I saw on Instagram.

This would make a wonderful gift for someone that's a true fan of Wonder Woman.

I just wanted to share some wonderful news about this collection.

Dollar Tree Body Wash Review: Soft Whisper Cucumber Green Tea

Let me start by saying that I was a little skeptical about using this product at first. I started seeing a lot of people buying it and stocking up on it, so I dedcided to give it a try...hey it was only a $1!

I went to Dollar Tree and bought 2 of the body washed in Cucumber Green Tea and Pomegranate Lemon Verbena. My family and I used the Cucumber Green Tea and to my surprise it's a great product! The scent is not overpowering, the lather is great, it rinse well and doesn't leave a slick feel on your skin. I am impressed with this product and it will be a staple in our home. I hope Dollar Tree keep this product around for a while. Why spend $4-$5 on Dove when you can rack up  on this product at the Dollar Tree.

I strongly recommend you go buy a bottle and try it.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream...

My favorite colors are Copenhagen & Transylvania... they're dark and rich. I don't wear my make up...meaning I keep my face natural but I will add the #xtraBOOM to my lips and it brings my face out. Those are the only two colors I would wear.
The price is very inexpensive and it doesn't dry your lips.

NYX all day!

The Walking Dead...3/20/16

Last night episode was beyond epic! Every episode get better and better and I'm loving it!

I had a feeling Denise was going to die.. when she started her back story, I was like yep she's not gonna make it. I didn't expect Eugene to get hit. What shocked the hell out of me was when he bit that guy nuts..lmao!  Eugene has outgrown his scary ways and starting to become more of a man because he see what has to be done in order to survive.

Abraham is in love with Sasha and I think she's feeling him too. I also think she gave him some Kitty.

What did you like about this episode?

Rick & Michonne Got Busy!


This is the moment I've been waiting for! 

Of course I went crazy on twitter when it happened! Lol 

I'm so happy to see that Rick finally got some and Michonne was the one to get it from..yes! 

They finally got busy!! 

Richonne Forever!

To Haul or Not To Haul?....

OMG...that is a question a I ask myself all the time! Lol

I shop and I do haul videos...but you better believe that I use everything that I buy or I send out in a friend mail. I'm not a hoarder!

I'm going to make this as short as possible, because I just want to make a point and be done with it.

Hauling is not the same as hoarding, when a person hauls items..they pretty much use the stuff they buy or send as a friend mail.

A hoarder or pack rat doesn't do that...they buy or collect things and stores them around the house thinking they need it for something, which they really don't.

A word that describes anyone that feels the need to find, collect, keep, pack ANY and EVERYTHING becasue they do not know how to throw things away.
A nicely put word than Pack Rat.

So please know the difference before you go around talking nonsense.

The Walking Dead...OMG!

Yes I'm a serious Walking Dead fan!

Now that's how you make Valentines Day special!.....Omg last night episode was AWESOME! Did you hear me?!..I said it was AWESOME!! From beginning to end I got my life!

I thought it was a dream or hallucination when Sam and his mom got attacked by the walkers...I was OOOOOOOH SH#T!....I knew the older brother was gonna lose him mind when that happened. He pulled the gun on Rick & Carl....but Michonne got him good..but he took Carls eye out in the process. That pissed me off..but Carl is going to be fine.

Once again Ricks rage kicked in and he set it off on those walkers..he was going in!

Darryl saves the day and blast the swallow that!!!
Oh and he flame broiled those walkers too...that's why he's my man!

Sasha & Red came thru just in time for Glen.

The pastor finally grew a pair of balls!!

I'm so proud of you Eugene!!

There were some many epic moments.

I just wanted to release my adrenaline and write this blog real quick! Lol..

YouTube...The Things That Goes On!

You would be surprised about the craziness that goes on in the world of Youtube. 

We all have our reasons for joining Youtube..some are  trying to get their products noticed..some like sharing their hauls, there are so many reason why people join youtube.


Some folks are so use to being popular...getting those paychecks and having thousands of views and subbies. Well what happens to a greedy attention whore (man or woman) they make up scandals..why put yourself through all of that? If you have to stoop that low...then it's time for you to get off YT and get back to real world and find yourself, because it's obvious that you have lost your damn mind!!   (Money is the root of all evil)


What happened to the days where we would call and talk to the person privately and hash out our problems? Those days seem to have gone bye bye! Try texting or inboxing someone to hash out your issues...thanks to screenshots your message aren't private anymore...the person could stoop so low and post what you said to them on all social media and here comes the beef again! Now some would take it further and make a video about and upload it to youtube just to show that their balls are this is what we're doing now?! WHATEVER!!!

Subscribing & Supporting

It's only right to show love and supoort those who support you. But you have those folks that want all the subbies and will never return a comment or even a thumbs up. Tjose are the ones that look for the higher number subbies to gain popularity. ake up my firend, we all started from none to some and not overnight. I think some of these folks forgot that we all started from the bottom. Why chase high number channels? Half of them don't even know you exist and don't care! Stay in your lane..because if you swerve you will get hit! 

Numbers don't matter...quality is better than quantity! 
Support those that support you....PERIOD!
Don't go out your way and get a P.O Box and go on a friendmail spree just to gain look tired and desperate! I be damned if I buy's not that serious!

Yotube is suppose to be fun! 
Let's make it fun again and show each other genuine love and support.
People watch youtube for a be careful what you put out there.
