Good black men are invisible to shallow minds

Lost causes make the best success stories

Today is Good Friday, and although I am not a deeply religious person, I’d like to think I am spiritual.

Caught Between Pretty and a Fat Place – the plight of curvy women

I started writing a blog in January of this year and I wanted to reach out to women – especially curvy women – to celebrate them and show everyone how beautiful and desirable they are. I wrote posts, made a Facebook page and made some videos about my views on relationships. During one of my […]

Look Sexy Stay Comfy – a guide to being sexy while feeling comfortable
