This economy sucks. Heading off to spend thousands on a degree that will cost you more than you make sucks even more. Small living, small spending, broke circles is not the boujie way. Also, waiting around on a job to give you their round of applause for your hard work…

Are We Too Fake?

There are so many layers to women but the one that has most of us stumped is beauty. In a world that judges us for not being a size 2, dissed and dismissed because of the lack of fashion trends on our bodies and viewed as awkward if we don’t…

Gone are the days when people said, “It’s just Facebook” and there is nothing to take seriously when it comes to FB. Yeah, it’s not true anymore. The truth is people judge you on and off Facebok, Twitter, blogs (ahem) and so on. If you are in a field where…

Whenever you hear a man claim that you deserve better or you watch him date a “weaker” woman, it can be for a few reasons. One, he could feel like more of a man when he is with a woman (the weaker one) who doesn’t argue with him, submit to…

The only thing worse than dating someone your friends may not like is dating a guy your own mother doesn’t like. Mothers and daughters for years have bickered back and forth about the type of men mothers want their daughters to marry. When we were younger, we went for the…

Black Friday Madness
