Eat at HOME!

The average American spends about $148 weekly on fast food which rounds up to about  $110 BILLION in a year. Sounds ridiculous right? Let it sink in.

 The amount of money you spend on fast food quickly accumulates greatly over time!  We are unknowingly cheating ourselves not only of our health, but also our hard earned money and breaking our pockets in the process. 

What if I told you guys there was a better, cheaper , and much healthier way to eat?


1.) You save money! To stock your fridge at home for a good month costs no more than $130.  When you constantly cook meals you will  have leftovers to enjoy as well. Instead of buying food on your break at work, eat a lunch that you packed from the night before.

2.) Eating at home is healthier. When food is being cooked for you by someone else you don't get to see what is being put into your food. At home you have the option of monitoring your food and choosing how much salt/pepper/sugar/calories etc... are being put in your meals.

3.) Satisfaction. There's nothing worse than going out to eat somewhere and the food is not cooked to your liking. Not only are you upset that it does not taste well, you have also wasted money that you can not get back.

4.) It's a great addition to your "resume". Whether you are a male or female your spouse will appreciate you that much more. They say the way to man's heart is through his stomach! If you are a woman, you don't want your man getting seduced away from you through a plate of food.

5.) Prepare yourself for the future. You don't want to be one of those parents who are constantly taking their children some drive through.  Learn how to cook, your future children will appreciate it! 

You do not have to be the best cook, but know your way around the kitchen. If you are lost, the easiest way is to get a COOKBOOK! This way you do not have to think of the meals yourself, and you already have the list of ingredients needed right in front of you!

I Love Mondays...

Today is Monday April 21st, 2014. It is the first official day of the new work week. Monday has held the title as the worst day of the week for decades now. Why? Well on Monday mornings many people are reminded that they are not living the lives that they want to live. They are reminded that their lives are not completely in their hands. Monday serves as a reminder to many that they are working for someone else. All in all Mondays remind people of every aspect of their lives that they are not happy about.

But Why?.....

Every 7 days a new Monday comes along. Ever 7 days you are given the favor of seeing a new Monday you have also been given the the favor to start new. Mondays come with a fresh start. You have the ability to put everything that happened in the past week behind you. You have the ability to see  Monday as a new beginning,  but for some reason very few people see things this say. Instead they use Mondays as an excuse to hate their lives. They use Mondays as a reason to complain about everything that is wrong without trying to fix it. 

Stop it.

Stop allowing "Monday" to be the barer of bad news. Stop allowing monday to steal all of your joy. Although it is the end of the weekend, it is also the start of a paying work day. For those of you that work a traditional 9-5 why would you ever hate Mondays? Without a monday you would not get paid. Without a monday you would be forced to take a pay cut. Think of all the people whoa re without jobs, without a place to go on Monday. Those are the people who should hate mondays. Not you. Be happy and grateful that someone needs you to come in to work. Be grateful someone needs you to answer those calls, arrange that shoe rack, analyze those financial documents etc... Be grateful.

And if you aren't...

Change it. If you are unhappy with what your Mondays look like, then change them. Do something  every Monday that makes it enjoyable. Have something to look forward to. Do not wait until the weekend rolls around in order to enjoy life, thats absurd. Enjoy every single day that you have on this earth. Create the type of life that you do not need vacations from.

5 things to help you enjoy your Monday

  1. Be grateful for  life
  2. Plan something enjoyable that you allow yourself to experience only on Mondays
  3. Do something nice for someone else least expects it
  4. Spend your Mondays with those that make you smile
  5. Go to your favorite restaurant/bar etc..

Another Sex Tape.....

We all know what has been brewing all week on social media. If you have been under a rock. Here is a little recap.

Mimi Hurst a Co-Star from Love and Hip-Hop.
Mimi has gone from Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta to Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta. Earlier this Week Mimi and Nikko’s sex tape "leaked" all over social media. In this video there is graphic video-autography of her sucking, licking, getting penetrated up down and all around a bathroom with a magical steel rod holding up dainty show curtains.

Mimi Faust Co-Stars — ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ Cast Jealous Of Sex Tape Fame

What are others saying?

Mimi stunned her cast mates when she dropped Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta, but a source close to Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star K. Michelle tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Real talk, they’re jealous of the press and publicity she’s getting off it but they don’t have the balls to do one themselves. This came out of left field. Like, Mimi dropped a bomb and it exploded big time.”
What is the big deal with sex tapes and “celebrities” making them when it seems that their lime light is slowly dimming? There is no surprise that Mimi’s sex tape was “leaked” just in time for the super trailer for the new season to drop. The new season on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta airs May…. And this sext tape is the perfect way to get everyone speaking/debating about the upcoming season.

The “Mimi Faust” sex tape is said to make her a lot of money. Why? I have no idea. I am a fan of the Love and Hip Hop fan, but I have absolutely zero interest in watching Mimi Faust have sex. I have zero interest in watching Mimi and Nikko play with each other in or around a tub. When did our society become so thirsty of things that every day people do on a regular basis?

Besides not wanting to see the tape it is absolutely ridiculous that a mother would release her own sex tape solely for money. It is insane at how much of ourselves we are willing to sell for a paycheck. The problem that I have with Mimi is she is a mother of a beautiful daughter. What will her daughter think when she gets old enough to see it. Her daughter will have to face other children. Due to the honesty of children there is no doubt in my mind that her daughter’s peers will question her about her mother actions. No child should ever have to deal with their parents demons. No parent should ever put their demons on their children.

Even though the VH1 show’s producers reportedly support Mimi’s sex tape, her cast mates have not understood her actions. K Michelle claims to be “mortified” by Mimi’s racy porn.


P.s: I still want to know what kind of shower rod that Mimi used in her video, because the way she was moving and shaking on the rod, it has to be made of something strong!

Career Wear

As much as we would love to wear whatever we want to jobs  sometimes our outfits are dictated for us. For example at interviews.When you are going to a job interview you want to be dressed the part. Doesn't matter if you are applying for a job in a grocery store or a position in the White House. It is all about professionalism. Presentation matters. Truthfully we are all judge mental and you can bet the person hiring you will be as well.

It is important that you present yourself as someone with integrity who actually cares about working at the establishment they are applying to.

All this being said, you never want to give up style completely. You can add your own twist! A lot of times jobs look for people who are naturally themselves, and an easy way to do this is by putting together an amazing outfit. You can be professional and show your personality as well. Make sure your outfit is not over the top. Less is more and you don't want to be a distraction to the person interviewing you!

If you are a woman, you should never wear anything that is too tight or revealing.

All skirts or dresses should be at least knee length, nothing higher. Blouses should not display any cleavage as well.

For men, take the time to iron your clothes and make sure they are stainless. AND, be sure to have your hair CUT. Clean men always win!

Here are some stylish ways to catch the attention of your interviewer without speaking!

Want things to be easy or do you want things worth mentioning?

There is not point is asking the world to be kinder to you. There is no point in asking for things to be easy. That is not the type of world we live in. Instead of asking for things to be easier, it is better that we ask for stronger skin, more opportunity, and the patience to deal with it all. That simple.  Nothing in this world that is worth having and keeping will come easy. Nothing at all.  The easy things do not last. The easy things are not worth talking about. No one wants to stop mediocrity from happening, the majority will encourage it. It is the few that are bold enough to TRY and risk it all that will have something worth possessing in the long run Would you rather have something easy and unmentionable, or something that you put your blood, sweat and tears into that becomes legendary!

We all have our moments when we think the world and everyone in it is against us. We all have those days where we want to give up and just lay over on our backs and be another helpless victim to “life”. Don’t think you are the only one who has ever felt like that. The key is not allowing these moments of weakness destroy your vision. You cannot allow the fear of failing be the reason you do not try. You cannot let your dreams scare you into wanting the easy way out.

You don’t want things to be easier. At least you shouldn’t. Think about it. What struggle will come to a man or man that is building nothing of significance? When your goals are small and your vision is minor no one questions you. Struggle never comes and visits the weak minded. Difficulties come to people in the process of doing something magnificent. Difficulty chases those who have bigger plans. It chases those who would rather work and fight through the hard times instead of complaining about them.

The universe has a way of testing our willpower. It has a way of figuring out who really wants to succeed, who really wants happiness. Nothing of great value will be handed to us on a silver platter. Nothing worth mentioning will be easy to obtain. You have to make a conscious decision. Do you want easy, or do you want legendary?

There is not testimony without a test. Go through the hardship today so you can celebrate the fruits of your labor later.

Find your inner Pastel!

As the weather gets warmer, the colors get brighter! 

Spring and summer are the best times to break out your pastels! Pastels are soft and delicate shades that attract a different type of energy. I love Pastels because they allow your to show your brighter wardrobe without feeling forced to purchase highlighter colored pieces.

So step out of your fashion comfort zone and find your inner "pastel"!! For those of your who do not normally dable in pastel, I am here to ease you into it! Rocking pastels and are an easy way to achieve that "posh" look many people have been sporting.

The best to two ways to wear pastels:

1.)  Match up your pastels with the exact same color, just mix and match the shades!  It's simple.

2.) Color block your pastels with other solid color pieces. Mixing green with blue or even purple and yellow! This will bring some pazazz  to the outfit.

How are you going to rock your inner pastel?
