I must admit my love for Cardi B grows more and more every day (actually, it's borderline obsession at this point!). But I wasn't always feeling her. My boyfriend first showed me her IG page back when she was just a regular stripper from the Bronx posting videos with no chill. And I was sooooo annoyed! But she grew on me. She around my age, she's a Libra like me, she's half Trini (like me!), and she also doesn't give a fuck (LIKE ME!!!). And just like any other Libra she's sensitive, self-conscious, and super down to earth, but will still fuck you up if need be. But that's not what I love most about her. My love for Cardi B is simply because of the way she leveled up. Whether you respect her beginnings or not, if Cardi B doesn't motivate you to never stop the grind then you're fuckin' bugging....or a hater! Either way, she's taking the world by storm and I hope she never stops! I recently checked out her interview with Fader magazine and of course I loved it. And if after you read it and you don't love her too (or at least respect her) then idk what else to tell you! www.thefader.com/2017/06/22/cardi-b-cover-story-interview
So this is really a thing!!! And it was discovered by 3 high school students as a school project. Hopefully this becomes available to everyone in the near future, so that know female ever has to go the trauma of being date raped! Watch the video and check out the full story on Forbes.com
KUDOS TO THESE LADIES!!!

This video is so cute and inspiring. Richard Overton is America's oldest living veteran (he's now 110 years old) and his secret to long life may surprise you, but I am totally here for it! As of 2017, his family has started a GoFundMe page to help raise money for his 24/7 home care so he doesn't have to leave his home. Click the link to read more of his story and donate.
With all the drama surrounding Uber and other companies that support Donald Trump, it's good to find Black-owned companies with views and morals that align more closely with mine. Founded by tech guru Godwin Gabriel, the Moovn app has the potential to give other ride sharing apps some competition. It's currently only operating in about seven US cities, including NYC and Chicago. I recently downloaded the app and my only issue so far is the wait time (about 20 to 30 minutes). I'm guessing that's because it's relatively new and they probably don't have as many drivers as Uber or Lyft. I do like the fact that you can also pre-book a ride. I'm sure the buzz around this app will grow within the next few months. So download the app and let me know what you think.
So if you know me then you already know that I love margaritas! And now that I'm no longer pregnant I'm even more excited for this. For those who don't know, the Margarita March is an annual event where you pretty much hop from bar to bar drinking margaritas (duh!). It started in 2013 and that takes place in different cities across the country (NYC, D.C., Miami, Philly). The NYC Margarita March takes place August 19th. You need to purchase a ticket which costs $65 and includes 8 margaritas at 8 different NYC bars. A portion of the proceeds are donated to charity. You can purchase tickets here and check out the Margarita March Facebook page for more info.

Now I don't know about you but I will ALWAYS be a kid at heart! And one thing I loved when I was kid was watching Disney Channel movies. To be honest I still watch them, but there's nothing better than the throwbacks. My favorites were: Double Teamed, Smart House, Gotta Kick it Up, Zenon, Halloweentown, Model Behavior, Pixel Perfect, The Thirteenth Year, and I'm gonna stop now before I name every single movie LOL. So according to Buzz Feed, Disney Channel has decided to do us all a favor and air every single one of their original movies. I don't know about you but I'm in total bliss!

Not only did Bey slayyyyyy in this video, she empowered us all and made me proud to be a Black Queen! She told us that she likes her baby's hair just the way it is, she shouted out big beautiful black noses, Red Lobster, and she keeps hot sauce in her purse. She let ya'll know that she is not here for that illuminati mess because she is an incredibly hard-working, talented Black woman who stacks her own paper and that's why she's successful. And last but not least she encourages black women to do the same and most importantly love ourselves. So take notes and slay like Bey!
This is something I've known about for a few years now. If you're not familiar with menstrual cups, they are flexible cups made of rubber or silicone inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual blood rather than absorb like tampons and pads. They are reusable and can be worn for up to 12 hours. Menstrual cups are also more cost effective than tampons and pads because they are reusable, they benefit vaginal pH by allowing helpful bacteria and fluids to remain in the vagina rather than absorbing everything like tampons do, they allow more time than tampons between changing (up to 12 hours), they are just as easy to use as tampons, and you can even have sex with your cup inserted (personal preference). If you're thinking about trying menstrual cups, make sure you do your research on the particular brand you plan to use. If you already use menstrual cups please comment below or email me personally to let me know what you think of them. Also, check out Diva Cups which is a popular brand of menstrual cups to purchase or get more information.
