10 Beauty Tips:
  1. Prevent frizz and speed up your drying time by using paper towel to wring water from your hair after shower. The paper won’t create as much friction as a towel, so you end up less frizzy. Also a paper towel absorbs more water than a cloth towel, speeding up your drying time.
  2.  When tweezing, make sure you soften your skin before you start by dabbing a cotton ball soaked in warm water or cream. When tweezing, do so in the direction of your hair’s growth.
  3. To stretch your hair color you can use DIY home glaze. Glazes fill holes and rough spots in your hair shafts, helping smooth your mane and putting moisture back into your hair. This  will keep your color shiny, bright and  lasting longer.
  4. Get moisture back into your skin in half the time by using hair conditioner to moisturize your hair and body. Just massage it in head to toe in the shower, rinse and dry. The conditioner will moisturize just as well as body lotion.
  5. If you run out of makeup remover, use body lotion or Olive oil with a cotton ball  to remove makeup. It also works well on tough mascara.
  6. Get more for your money, by applying styling products 10 minutes before you style. Whether you are curling, straightening, or doing an updo, applying product 10 minutes in advance helps it fully absorb into your hair.
  7. Refreshen makeup in a snap. Lightly mist your face with toner, then pat with a tissue. Finish up with a dusting of loose powder to seal everything back into place.
  8. A quick way to hide new growth or grey hair if you dont have time to get a color retouch. Simple use mascara if you have dark hair. For blondes or redheads try dusting your roots with eye shadow or bronzing powder then seal with hair spray.
  9. To get smoother result when shaving legs, wait until after your shower to shave. The steam softens hairs for closer shave and smoother results.
  10. Two tricks to stop flyaway hair. Spray Static Guard on your comb or brush.  Or you can yous a dryer sheet on your hair.

DOPE PROS: Bass Fishing with Pro Angler Torcia

1 Dec

Fishing

 

Through the Wire with African-American Pro Angler—Torica Whitty

Since its humble beginnings in the late 19th century—the professional sport of bass fishing, which involves the angling of a rod with hopes of catching a black bass (the second most sought-after game fish in the United States)—has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry, which was once entirely represented by Caucasians—that is, until 1976—when Alfred “The Frog Master” Williams became the first African-American male Pro Angler to fish in a B.A.S.S. pro event; and in 1984—Williams became the first African-American to fish the Bassmaster Classic. He courageously broke through bass fishing’s color barrier, and ever since then—a small door has been opened for minorities to compete in the competitive outdoor world of bass fishing.

HBK TV: WORKING OUT THE SEALED CLUTCH WAY

27 Nov

Saturday, November 22, 2014 I had my 2nd session with Cameil Ross of Sealed Clutch and I just had to share this amazing workout. I have a issue with person trainers, because they are just so CRAZY! They never understand that you’re a beginner and they are never affordable. Well, I stand corrected…. this young lady Cameil Ross reached out to me through Instagram and I said okay why not. Since I am now on my Brooklyn Bridge Challenge I felt this could be a good add on to my workout journey.  And I am glad I did.

This Thanksgiving Ross is offering a Black Friday sale so don’t miss out @sealedclutch (This is not a paid advertisement) When you come across something amazing from someone so awesome, you should share the information with people you love!

 

One Ratchet Play

10 Oct

It’s been a very long time since I seen something so ratchet! Well, on Sunday, September 28th, 2014 I went to view the Release the Kraken. The play wanted to shine light on the most ratchet situations and the different people who were ratchet, they definitely succeeded. I always new that ratchet is not a skin color, but a life style and that’s exactly what the play exposed to its audience. There were tons of cursing so if you are a person like myself who tends to avoid vulgar language, I suggest you cover you ears when going out to see this play. There were some funny scenes; K. Michelle, Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez skit cracked me up. At the end the cast, writer and director sat and spoke to the audience telling  us about their journey. I also spotted their Publicist Shirley Paul mingling with the show’s supporters. They totally released the Kraken!

HBK Confessions: Beyonce’s Flawless Remix hmmmmmm

5 Aug

 I love me some Beyonce and Even Nicki but this collaboration was sorry to say but an epic fail! The beat and lyrics were all over the place and to me this just depreciated the value of Beyonce. I looked at Beyonce as someone that was on legendary status and now well… a joke. Nicki’s whole image has been a joke and it works for her. No shade thrown anyone’s way but I felt if Queen Bey would have chosen someone to create and share a hit record with, it would have been Continue reading

Back to the dating Board: Pt. 2 of Third Date

27 Jul

So it’s been a while since my last post about my Third date with the new guy. It’s has been a journey and now I’m on my way to the movies with a 6 foot Irish/ Italian Man. So as we were walking to the movies he was a little slow and awkward (it was his first time dating  a black girl). so I am so eager to tell you all what’s been going on!

I would love to walk you through this date but I think I should just go straight to the point. We were in the movies and while sitting there watching the movie he kept his distance. Why you ask? Well, there was a black man sitting next to him and he felt afraid. Smh. I? thought he was a grown man, regardless being white. There wasn’t any chemistry, I tried to keep an open mind but it was an epic fail. I thought that if I continued to talk to him I would get to know him, but I didn’t know I would discover a crazy, insecure and penny pitching man. you wonder why I state these things? well…… Continue reading
