Black Women, Hair, and Exercise. Tips From the Pros

CIMG3041

Here’s one natural hair story I’m sick of — the “black women don’t exercise because of their hair” story. It’s been written too many times and guess what? It isn’t necessarily true. Yes, sure — there are women of color who don’t want to get their hair all sweaty, especially after getting their hair freshly […]

Spa Week’s a-Coming, Time to Book Those Appointments!

Spa Week

The beautiful thing about Spa Week is the affordability factor. Spas and salons that typically offer $90 facials and $100 massages slash their prices so that hardworking women who deserve a spa treatment — like you and me — can enjoy a spa treatment.

The Awesomeness of Awkward Black Girl

Awkward Black Girl

When it comes to comedy, I tend to steer left of center. I tend to love comedy that’s subversive, quirky, sometimes cringeworthy. I can’t miss Curb Your Enthusiasm, Parks and Recreation, or Community. I think Wyatt Cenac, Donald Glover, and Hannibal Burress are brilliant. Anthony Jeselnik makes me laugh till I cry. I’m a big […]
