Romping about?

I know I haven’t posted in a few days. Sorry about that. Had to catch up on some MUCH needed sleep. However my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds have been dripping with juicy memes about the latest …ah, what is it …fad? trend? Time will tell, but yes I’m talking about male rompers. Bro rompers. RompHims….

Tea is the new coffee?

I really can’t count how many times I have decided to give up coffee. Never actually do. Lately though, I’ve become much more interested in tea. There are so many different kinds, that coffee almost seems boring to me now. Peppermint will always be my favorite, but specialty teas like vanilla hazelnut and blueberry are…

Transformation Tuesday: I chose a light and airy look.

I look a bit like a kid without makeup, but I hear that’s a good thing. Who knows. Anyway I’ve decided to post makeup transformation pictures every Tuesday from now on.  These two pictures were both taken within days of each other in Jamaica last year. The makeup I’m using is very light, given the…

So, Bleach is my favorite anime. Why?

First of all, let me just say that I’ve barely scratched the surface of the anime world. I have no clue about most of what’s out there, and it’s going to take me the next couple years to come anywhere close to catching up. But, a girl can still have a favorite, right? That would…

I’m friends with my lover

I’ve always taken a straightforward approach to dating. You meet, you like each other, and next thing you know, you’re official. Seems fair, right? I could never figure out why it just never felt right, whether it lasted for a few months, or a few years. Something was missing. I felt like it was all…

My raw, misguided idea of beauty

I woke up and glanced at the clock. Overslept.  Again. I had only about an hour to get ready for work if I wanted to stick to my walking schedule. I went to the bathroom, grabbed a shower, and got dressed. With 45  minutes remaining, I had a choice. I could eat something, or I could…

10 Reasons to Never Date Me

I feel like having a little fun with this. I saw the question on Quora and thought to myself, “hmm, that’s different.” I’ve spent a lot of time thinking of reasons why someone should date me, but never really thought of reasons why maybe some people shouldn’t. And that’s totally a thing. Some people should…

Are hymns only for Christians?

I may not go to church now, but I was raised a Christian and I still find myself singing hymns from time to time. In fact, they are my favorite kind of music. The other day I was singing “Rock of Ages” and someone raised an eyebrow at me. “You’re a Christian?” he asked. I…

I love a good biography

I have always loved stories. Especially true stories. Since I was a little girl, there was just this part of me that always wanted to know where everyone was coming from. I loved listening to family members, teachers, and just about anyone tell me what their lives where like as children, teenagers, and even their…

Sometimes a girl just needs a place to call home

Over the past few days, so much has happened! I’m most excited about moving, which happened today.This will likely be my last move for at least a year, so I’m looking forward to having a little more stability. And what makes it better is that it’s a place with one of my best friends, so…

Kim’s Pick: Organic Root Stimulator’s Olive Oil Edge Control

Hey hey hey! This one is for my kinky and curly girls. So unlike most non-women-of-color, our hairlines tend to be curly and free. They don’t usually lie down, and you know something? There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, I like having healthy hair and healthy edges, so I smooth them with a…

Kim’s Pick: I found it! Rimmel’s Professional Eyebrow Pencil

Remember the post I did last week about the Colorstay Brow Pencil by Revlon? As you might remember, I didn’t like that product very much and only tried it because I couldn’t find my beloved favorite eyebrow pencil for months. Well, today I found it and am I SO happy. It’s the Professional Eyebrow Pencil…

How to drink more water when you don’t really like water.

I was grocery shopping the other day, and this tiny blue bottle of liquid caught my eye. At first, I thought it was food coloring, but I was in the beverage aisle, so that didn’t make sense. Didn’t have anything better to do, so I put my hand cart down and took up the bottle….

I hate holidays

Why do I hate holidays? The answer may surprise you, or it may not. Perhaps you can even relate, and if you can, then feel free to comment. Would be nice to know I’m not alone. You may have already begun to notice, but I’m heading in a different style direction with this post. See, usually…
