I saw this hilarious dating video (it’s a quick 2 minutes, with about 5 seconds NSFW) about how people label each other when adding people as phone contacts. Hey, they used Ting Tings “That’s Not My Name” which had me replaying the video so I could sing the chorus again. Love that song! And can I tell you how many times, I’ve had to spell my name because people call me Stacy or something else….
The video is on my Tumblr page because it would display properly.
Here’s a recipe from The Coffee Detective
Iced Caramel Mocha
1 oz. chocolate syrup
1/2 oz. caramel syrup
6 oz. milk
1 cup ice
1-2 shots espresso (0r swap out for 1/2 c brewed coffee or decaf)
Combine all ingredients, stir and serve.
Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.
So, I was scrolling through a few blogs last week and since I want us to start off the week with a laugh, here’s a funny video of British style maven Patricia Bright getting her makeup applied by her husband – while he’s blindfolded! Would you let your significant other do your hair or makeup or even dress you?
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
Nor has anyone who chooses selective outrage instead of absolute accountability successfully shifted an out of wack moral compass.
This summer the National Museum of Women In The Arts in Washington, D.C. presents selected pieces from artist Faith Ringgold. The exhibition American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s will be on view from June 21–November 10, 2013. Ms. Ringgold painted flat, figural compositions that showed a decidedly female perspective of the nascent Civil Rights Movement during the 60’s. She moved into sculpted works in the 1970’s and what she’s referred to as “story quilts” in the 80’s.
I’m not sure whether to laugh or cringe at this K-Mart commercial featuring kids doing the “dozens” and “yo mamma” one-offs, but it wasn’t about hurling insults. It’s a little edgy. And there are two young black actresses featured in a multicultural ad. I’m on the fence with this one. What do you think?
Namely, how much perceived beauty is a serious advantage. Hoffman reflects during an interview with the American Film Institute on his now iconic role in Tootsie. He also discusses the “interesting” women he personally passed on getting to know better (smh). Live and learn, right?
The lesson I see here is:
a) While not every woman will want to appeal to, or pull interest from various men –
b) We can still exercise our option to do so (on more favorabe terms) by employing our Charm Offensive.
c) We can do this while pursuing education, building skills, finding a mate and moving through the world.
It benefits any woman to place herself amongst those who can provide for and support her dreams, ambitions and life gooals!
