Rihanna and her "original" looks

Quick Question;
Did anyone think that Rihana's "rude boy" looked exactly like MIA's "Boyz?"
I was sooo annoyed. This is going to be a rant, so I have warned you.
When Rihanna first came out, I was in love! I loved the natural reggae/ pop feeling that she had, and she seemed like a real and down to earth person, young but confident in her skills.
Now when I see her I see fake written down all over her. I feel that the music industry is making her something that she's not, like she's trying so hard to be this bad girl,. It's so annoying.
You know those people who do everything in their power to be alternative for the sake of being alternative? Even if it doesn't go with what they believe in? That's what she's doing. M.I.A. came out with boys along time ago, and now Rihanna's stealing her thunder. This happens in music all the time, but I thought you were supposed to wait about 20 years, minimun, NOT within the same generation. She compl…

Natural 101

Many people have started using "natural" Products because they have heard that they are better for you. But there is a lot of misinformation out  there, and I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to share with you some basic facts!
Pure Vs Organic
This topic alone may be new to some people.  There are many who don't know the difference between pure and organic products.

Organic:  This great article by the FDA, says that:
Organic refers not only to the food itself, but also to how it was produced. Foods labeled organic bust be certified by the national  Organic  Program, which took effect October 21, 2002. They must be grown and processed using organic farming methods that recycle resources and promote biodiversity- two key elements of environmentally sustainable agriculture...
The article then goes into detail about how crops have to be grown and how livestock have to live.

Pure: Is anything that the manufactures want it to be.  This word is not regulated like orga…

Workout songs!

Sometimes when you are working out, you just need a little boost to help you out with your workout. Thought my songs vary, these are my go to top songs I blast to get in the mood!

5.Shakira- Suerte:I want to listen to all her music! 'Suerte" is the Spanish version of 'whenever, wherever'. I don't know why, but I always love her Spanish songs so much!

4.Florence and the machine-Dog days are over: The beat of the songs just gets me. The opening with the harp just pushes me when I'm running at the gym. This song is so inspirational to me! I always imagine myself in the music video. Watch and be amazed!

3.MIA-Hombre: This song makes me want to shake my hips so bad! When I'm doing crunches or push ups, I just want to get up and dance!


2.Beyonce-Get me bodied: The original workout song! this song makes my body want to get bodied! it just has that effect on me the BET awards is my favorite version of this song ( and has a treat at the end)

GOOD Hair

Being 21, I was recently at a bar with some of my friends and a guy came up to me and asked if he could touch my hair. At that very instant, there was so much I wanted to say to him, so he could understand why that comment was so... annoying, to say the least. The culture of black hair is one that is very complicated, and so thick, ( no pun intended) that there was no way for me to easily explain to this man why asking to touch a black girls hair brings off negative vibes. Today, I would like to enlighten you on the matter. My hope is for people that are not black or not in this "hair culture" understand why black women have such an "obsession" with hair. Below is a clip from the Trya show. Here, she addresses a women who wants to go "all natural." However, there is a debate between the other women who are on the show. Just watch and see for yourself.

E-Fitness

Hey everyone! I hope your summer is going well! For those of you who are still on your fitness journey; your workout has just become a little easier. E-Fitness‚ founded by  Emmanuel Asamoa was created to aid others meet their fitness goals. “ This is something that I’ve always wanted to do.” He says.  Asamoa learned proper work out training techniques from coaches‚ trainers and classes. He also does research on what  types of exercises to do and which to avoid.

Realizing that many of his clients are college students Asamoa states that “I had the price set for $50 a week but I'm willing negotiate with my clients to bring the price a little lower... I believe that there are lot of people who really want to get involved but cannot afford $50 a week.”

For me‚ getting started is the hardest part of working out. I believe having a personal trainer helps people get motivated.  Emmanuel understands this. “I believe that everyone is different... you have to be willing to spend that personal …
