Hello World, I've been hiatus... BUT I've been around.

Hello World, I've been hiatus... BUT I've been around. Some of you may or may not know, October 2009 I decided to no longer relax (PERM) my hair. I had so many reasons to stop doing this type of treatment to my hair. After deciding to no longer relax my hair I was forced to deal with my OWN HAIR (yes MY HAIR) and it was the beginning of my hair journey (I wondered why they called it a 'journey'... NOW I know). In the meantime I've stayed true!! And I have not purchased any relaxer and I'm dealing with my natural 'coils of joy' and it's been difficult at times. Not sure how to style it. Not sure what to do it... It's so much hair BUT at the same time I'm glad I did it for so many reasons. In the midst of my journey I have had bad days... (SMH) feeling lost with this hair LOL! I'm a member on alot of Natural Hair Blogs. I thank God for the blogs and youtube! - They are my support group. I was on a blog called Natural Sunshine and I noticed the 'natural hair' groups would have these meetups. They had pics, product swapping and just good ol' fun OR so it seemed. I thought to myself, where are all the naturals in my CITY !!?? I need help. I need a Natural Hair Meetup!! Meet me please!! I need help!!
I'm ready to shave my head bald LOL! I met up with my first Natural Hair Meetup in Berkeley! (Clapping my hands) I had so much fun! It was absolutely great! We swapped products and I HAD A HAIR FAB TIME! Not only did I get free products I had a chance to listen to what others like me are experiencing... I learned a lot. I felt so much better. I left not wanting to shave my hair off. Here are some pics from my first Natural Hair Meetup! If you'd like to join a Natural Hair Meetup Group in the East Bay Area please feel free contact me. I'd be happy to show inform you about great group!

BOOTY READER & CURVE ID THANK YOU http://fashionista.com/

Hello World!! I've been hiatus... I know... BUT I've been around... I'll talk about that later. Today I read something that really caught my attention... Yes something besides Fantasia's Overdosing and Naomi Campbell vs Mia Farrow
I absolutely love this blog called the http://fashionista.com/ (Check them out!! and make sure to Like them on Facebook or follow on Twitter like I do)

The particular article that caught my attention today mentioned below
Why Denim Companies are All About Da Booty by Leah Chernikoff
(
http://fashionista.com/2010/08/why-denim-companies-are-all-about-da-booty/)

Here are couple lines that I'd like to share with your from the article,
(see the link above for the entire article)
“Question: What is that everybody has and pirates and thieves try to take?”
A Tribe Called Quest knew the answer was “Da Booty.” (I loved that quote... brought back some memories LOL)
"Just last week Old Navy launched their “Booty Reader” to give shoppers the chance to find the jeans to best fit their booty’s lifestyle."

A Booty Reader!! What the heck is "Booty Reader" First we get mannequins to stand in for people on the Old Navy Commercials (I know we are in recession & mannequins are cheaper than using human models... I'm all for saving money also)
Then I read on, "Levi’s is launching a line of jeans called “Curve ID” which will utilize new technology to fit jeans based on a woman’s shape"
This is GOOOOOOD!! It's about time people realized women are sometimes curvy... Myself for example, my waist is not as large as my hips and butt soooooo a belt is a must have! If I don't have a belt I have a huge gap in the back of pants... and we all know... that's a fashion no-no (SMH)

I continued to read and came across this, "Their (Curve ID) tag line?
“All asses are not created equal.”Levi’s scanned over 60,000 women across the globe to come up with three basic shapes–slight curve, demi curve and bold curve–which they believe will fit 80% of body types. It’s the solution to many common denim dilemmas: the jeans that fit your ass and thighs but not your waist, or fit your waist but are loose on the ass."

YAY a solution... to my problem!! I love solutions to my problems

The article also said "Old Navy’s “Booty Reader” technology isn’t quite as sophisticated as Levi’s “Curve ID” the motivation is similar: to help women find the jeans that actually fit their ass. Because, as we all well know, a good pair of jeans has the power to make your ass look amazing."

Quite naturally, I go online and look up the "Booty Reader" and the site comes up... feel free to click on the link http://www.bootyreader.com/
AND when I open it up... THE SMHS (Shaking My Head Syndrome) starts
WHAT THA... check out the link please... I'd love to know your thoughts.
I agree with writer Leah, "Old Navy’s “Booty Reader” technology isn’t quite as sophisticated as Levi’s “Curve ID”
BUT here are the jeans I was granted my the Madame Old Navy Mannequin.(I'm not sure what to think of that concept... creepy)


My Bootysign was BADONKADONKUS - Voluminuous hips, perky backside, curve all around


I had to look up Levi's "Curve ID" and just like the article says, you have 3 types of Curve ID jeans to choose from. Slight Curve, Demi Curve & Bold Curve
(link http://us.levi.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3146849&AB=CMS_Home_CurveID_081010)



I had to go straight to the Bold Curve.
For some reason the Levi "Curve ID" jeans makes me feel better. Not sure if its the presentation or what. Maybe this will be the key for Levi's to get more ladies purchasing a pair of Levi Jeans afterall...

At any rate be on the look out for both!!! It's time for a new pair of jeans to rock with my Naturally Sassy Tshirt & My Afro!! (by the way the Naturally Sassy Shirt will be on sale very soon & can be purchased on the up and coming Sassy Girl Tees site)

THE AFTER EFFECTS OF MY WONDERING IS...

HELLO WORLD, Do you have the following:

Decreased energy
Decreased mental quickness
Decreased desire for physical activity
Decreased muscle tone
Increase in body fat, particularly around the mid-section
Night sweats and trouble sleeping
Mild to moderate irritability
Depression, or loss of eagerness and enthusiasm for daily life
Decreased desire for intimacy

Those are symptoms of Andropause, Male Menopause - Low Male Hormone Levels

And I THOUGHT… women were the only ones suffering from menopause!!
(you may have known this… I just found out)

There is treatment for Andropause Testosterone Replacement
Testosterone replacement therapy is the primary means of treating men.

Click here for more information http://health.discovery.com/centers/mens/articles/andropause_02.html

Male hormonal contraceptives (yep… Male contraceptives…)
Ladies you’re probably thinking… YAY!! Now what is it?
Once again I was online reading and I came across the following

“Researchers are coming closer to a marketable male hormonal contraceptive (MHC) delivered by injection or implant, but there is nothing commercially available right now.”

yep - Nothing right now ladies… SORRY or NOT IN THE US IS WHAT I SHOULD SAY

“Male hormonal contraceptives attempt to block or severely reduce the production of sperm. They accomplish this by stopping the secretion of a man's reproductive hormones in the brain and testes. When levels of testosterone in the testes are low, sperm production slows or halts.”
“Men taking MHCs in clinical trials experience a range of side effects, including lean muscle weight gain, increased acne and changes in mood. These side effects are caused by the synthetic androgen in the MHC regimen.”
Read here for more information - http://malecontraceptives.org/methods/hormonal.php

What I did find crazy were that men get the same side effects... women get from certain contraceptives – do we really want this ladies?? LOL!!!

There is survey on the link mentioned below titled, Prove that there is demand for new male contraceptives go ahead and click on
http://malecontraceptives.org/new_activism.php
Read here for more information - http://malecontraceptives.org/methods/hormonal.php
Here is another link to check out http://www.rabihdagher.com/blog/2009/05/how-does-male-contraceptive-injection-work/




Breast Cancer in Men
Listed are the estimates for Male Breast Cancer in 2009 according to American Cancer Society (http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_1X_What_are_the_key_statistics_for_male_breast_cancer_28.asp)
“About 1,910 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among men and about 440 men will die from breast cancer”
"Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years."
What Is Breast Cancer in Men? Check out this link http://www.cancer.org/docroot/CRI/content/CRI_2_4_1X_What_is_male_breast_cancer_28.asp
I also read the story of Scott Cunningham, 45 from Marion NC regarding breast cancer
(click here for the entire story http://www.emaxhealth.com/1506/men-high-risk-breast-cancer-need-better-screening-tools.html)
Here is section of what I read , ” Scott Cunningham, 45 from Marion NC, is at a very high risk for developing Male Breast Cancer. Both of his parents had the disease in the 1990’s. Recently, he developed the same symptoms as his father, including a swollen chest with knots underneath the nipple and feelings of fatigue, but because he was uninsured, he put off receiving help. When he finally sought medical guidance, he was turned away – because he was a man.“I didn’t know what to do at first,” Cunningham told ABC News. “I was stunned and confused. Breast cancer used to be just a woman’s cancer, but now it’s well known men are susceptible.”

All of this information has made me think… and I hope it opened your eyes as well
Speaking of eyes… Both Males and Females like stunnas, shades, sunglasses right….

Here are some really different sunglasses I saw online… and I was wondering.. who could actually wear these and look normal?
I'll tell you my guess if you tell me yours (leave a comment… or message me)
Could actually rock this glasses?? Inquiring minds would love to know

Who can step into spring without stepping into spring with new spring time shoes!!

HELLO WORLD - GOOD BYE MARCH! HELLO APRIL!

APRIL 1ST! A DAY FULL OF FARCENESS... (YEAH I MADE THAT WORD UP LOL)
APRIL 1ST = APRIL FOOL'S DAY!!
BEWARE OF THE PRANKS THAT MAY COME YOUR WAY LOL (I hate pranks LOL)

PER Wikepedia - "April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day is a holiday celebrated in various countries on April 1. The day is marked by the commission of hoaxes and other practical jokes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbors, or sending them on a fool's errand, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, such as the UK, Australia, and South Africa the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool".[1] Elsewhere, such as in France, Ireland, Italy, South Korea, Japan, Russia, The Netherlands, Brazil, Canada, and the U.S., the jokes last all day"

Here are some lovely pranks (Did I mention I hate the pranks LOL)

Glue eggs to the carton and beg for eggs in the morning. When the victim gets them the eggs break!

Find a box about the size of a cake. Then cover it with frosting, making it look like a cake. Then put it out in the office kitchen, or wherever people leave free food. Sit back as one of your co-workers tries to cut a slice.

If your milk comes in a cardboard container, add a few drops of food coloring. It’s harmless April Fool’s joke but the results are pretty colorful.

Get up really early and sneak into your victims bathroom and fill their hair-dryer with baby powder. And when they turn it on, their head will be pure white just like an old person!

If you have a sink with a sprayer, put a rubber band around the handle when nobody’s looking. This automatically keeps the nozzle in spray-mode. Make sure the nozzle is pointing up and outward. The next person to use the sink will get a splash!

Take an empty coffee mix can and replace it with a can with coffee mix in it. Make sure coffee cans are the same brand, or it will not work. At the bottom of the can put a piece of paper that says April Fools. Make sure you help the person with making their coffee to see their reaction.

Get a small alarm clock and set it for 3:00 a.m. Sneak under the victim’s bed. Once it goes off, he/she won’t be able to find it will drive them nuts

OK now onto Gabby!! Yes Gabby S!!Gabby is looking good wearing the Anais Jeweled Neck Dress dress from IGIGI. I'm excited for Gabby she has a lot going on right now and I'm rooting her on!! Excited to see the Bay Area represented so well. Please check out http://www.igigi.com/
IGIGI (founded by Yuliya Raquel) designs and manufactures everything is San Francisco, California. (I heart SF) When you put on an IGIGI garment you will feel sooooo good! I've seen it happen!

Her staff is fabulous!

HELLO WORLD! GRAB A WINDOW SEAT!

Hello World
I received Mz Badu’s video Window Seat via email from a lot of my friends and a lot of people have asked me what do I have to say about it… the answer is
I LOVE MZ BADU! This is Erykah Badu! This is classic! I applaud her for stripping down to nothing and walking like a queen! BUT it’s the words that I listen to. I loved the way the video was shot (inspired by Matt & Kim/ Lessoned Learned) BUT once again it’s the message that I paid attention to. Check out the words at the end and ask yourself are you they? I never expect the ‘norm’ from her BUT I always expect another spectrum. THE SONG IS HOT!
ROCK ON MZ BADU! But I’m sure everyone who watched the video completely… im sure everyone asked themselves if they are quick to assassinate what we don’t understand? This can be so many things… I’m sure we all had something to think about once the video was over AND that’s the greatest part! Did it leave you thinking? Thank you Mz. Badu!

I'M BACK

Hello World... I'm back
I've been super busy!! working on a Sassy Girl Tees photo shoot!! This has been quite the experience. We (Me and Marna) were so busy trying to pull this thing together. It was our first of many photo shoots. I'm excited and I can't wait to see how it all turns out. SO many things to do... such little time. We need an intern LOL!! I'm running around like a naked chicken. When I run around like a lil featherless chicken I surround myself with tons of music.
MUSIC is my calm in the midst of the storm.



Like the rest of the world I am saturating with myself with Sade! Yes she is so Sassy!! I love the new Sade CD!!







I'm a huge Corinne Bailey Rae fan!!
Check out her new one THE SEA
Love this cd! I love Corinne... I've submerged myself into the sea... without drowning LOL!!







AND lately you can find Mz Badu's new single floating around online of course I'm talking about Mz Erykah Badu! I love Erykah Badu she is sooooo Bad-uuuu LOL
Waiting patiently for her new cd New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)

I've joined a gym and had a training session that kicked my butt BUT I know if I stick to what the instructor said I'll be ready for the summer. YEP I'll be all Sassy-Li-Cious!

I've been slacking on the water thing (thumbs down for myself) I fell off the wagon aaaaagain.
Why is it so hard to do the right thing? Why can't I just drink water all day?? every day???
Pray for me please LOL because I am struggling in this area. I'm still a faithful lil walker every Saturday getting my 2 miles in weekly. Thank you again to all the walkers in my group (I love you guys)

So were done with February 2010!! Black History Month, Valentine's Day and Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger... NOT TIGER WOODS!! I don't wanna hear his name for at least another 8 months LOL)

February always seems to go so fast. Once again I want to thank all of the people who paved the way for me as a young black woman. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate your heart and soul. I hope to make all of those before me PROUD.


NOW were in March... Marzo!! March is my birthday month!!
What shall I do?? anyone have any ideas for me?? I'm taking suggestions.
