Manicure/Pedicure (being pampered by my sister Nari)

Ok anyone and everyone can stereotype all they want but my sister got skills. She do nails!!! Not only her but I can do them as well. hahaha. People might say all Asians do nails but Ha regardless of race when whom and whoever need their nails done "Where do ya go???" To an Asian spot (Don't get me wrong some of them are horrible, I agree). I hear it all the time "Asian people can do nails"...Hmm that's because we like to pamper ourselves, we like to keep our stuff fresh, so what do we sit back and say "Why not make money out of it?" So what I can say is one of my goals is to own my own shop...Sisterly Owned...If ya have a problem with that ya can kiss my @$$$ Cause I will be the one that will be bankin hahaha

She did the white tips on my toes and gold tips on my finger nails. I wish ya can see them on my finger nails but its almost the color of my skin in the picture. But it looks really good. I like to try different things on my nails.

Anyways once I found out that she can do nails and she love doing it. I totally stop going to the shop and started growing my nails out (all real baby) and have her do them. I went out and bought all of the supplies and it was a wrap from then on. My best friend Brandi also bought me a relaxing spa foam bath machine for me to soak my foot in (thank you). And I love it. I will be going to cosmetology school to get my nail license to become a nail technician in March and will graduate the end of June. My sister will go and get hers once she graduate from high school in June...Be on the lookout for us :)

Officially 24

I turned 24 yesterday December 22. LOL I get teased a lot cause people say that's still a baby or the people I'm around is older than I am which is cool I learned a lot from them. But what I can say is that I am a women. A smart one at that. I had a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY. I can't ask for anything better. I didn't go out. It was too cold and to be honest I'm startin to become more of a home body unless it's pertaining to business then I will step out. But I'd rather stay in and be comfy with my love ones. My birthday started off on Sunday then it carried onto Monday. I had dinner and a movie and my gift was...aahh (speechless). Anyways enough about that.

I can sit back and say I met some interesting and great people in my life. I learned a lot and accomplished a lot. I'm apart of a company that I love and is driven and passionate about. My kids are healthy, my family and friends support me and got my back 150 percent. What I can say is that I wished I have done more. But at the same time I live life with no regrets. Just have to learn from it and make changes and think more smarter and wiser at everything that I do. Now its time to push it to the limit. I am ready for anything and everything that will come my way. I set goals that I will accomplish before I turned 25. 2009 I am ready. IT WILL BE A GREAT YEAR...

Entourage..."Ari Gold is leaving broadway"

OK if you guys watch entourage all i have to say that this is very devastating. I love Ari. It wouldn't be the same with out him...Read Below and this is the reason why he is leaving.

NEW YORK, New York -- Jeremy Piven is ending his run in Broadway's "Speed-the-Plow," due to a condition caused by a high mercury count, according to Variety.
The "Entourage" star missed a Tuesday evening performance and a Wednesday matinee due to his high mercury count health concerns, but David Mamet, the playwright of "Speed-the-Plow," appears skeptical of the actor's exit.

"I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury," Mamet told the entertainment trade mag. "So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer."But, the show will go on said Mamet.
"The good news is that some really great actors will be helping out and stepping in, which to me is a sign of great heroism and friendship," the playwright added, but declined to name who would be stepping for Piven.

A rep for Piven told Variety that the actor wanted to continue his Broadway stint, but was advised by a team of doctors to end his run immediately.
Piven is best known for his role on "Entourage," playing manic Hollywood agent Ari Gold.

Wow their second baby...

The Raymond household got an early Christmas present as Usher and Tameka welcomed their new baby, Naviyd Ely Raymond, around 2:33 A.M. on Wednesday. The baby weighs in at 5 pounds and 13 ounces, according to Usher's rep Simone Smalls of Simone Smalls Public Relations. In September, the Grammy-winning singer and celebrity stylist confirmed they were expecting a second son together following the birth of Usher Raymond V in November 2007.

"Tameka and the baby are doing fine," said Smalls in a written statement.
Usher exclusively introduced his namesake to the world on the cover of ESSENCE in August and shared how fatherhood gave his life new meaning and joy. "When your child looks at you, there's nothing phony," he said. "There's nothing fake about it. It's pure love."

In September 2007, the couple married in a private Atlanta ceremony among family and friends while Tameka was five months pregnant. This makes the second child for Usher and fifth for Tameka, CEO of Swanky Image Group and Hides and Dungarees Denim Collection.Usher wrapped his One Night Stand tour in support of his fifth album, "Here I Stand," in November and continues to work on his upcoming lingerie collection, a follow-up to his UR fragrance line. The ATL pop phenom is also co-owner of Atlanta wine bar The Grape as well as the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers. He also works closely with his foundation, Usher's New Look, which empowers youth in inner-city communities.

Flaws and All...

Great song...I can relate to what she's saying. I think that's why she cried at the end, sometimes you don't mean to hurt that other person's feelings because your having a bad day. Enjoy the Video...

"We make Moves...Jwork Team (106&Park air on 12/12/08)"

Man I'm speechless. Were on our way back home from New York city. It was an overwhelming experience. When I say we make moves... I'm serious. Jwork Team goes hard. Our mission was accomplished. We build a lot of connects today at BET. Got in touch with Rocsi&Terrence talked to them for a little and their stylist. Got DJ ProStyle a robot shirt that he rocked on the show. Put some of the audience on and introduced them to Jwork. They were going crazy about Jwork. Exchange info with Champion of FreeStyle Friday...and many more. Man all I have to say is my weekend started off really shitty. I got into a car accident.That really pissed me off. But with me going on this trip all I can say is this made it better. I would do this all over again. Whatever it takes for jwork I'm there.

Written from a man...

Ladies this was written from a man. If you don't take these tips I don't know what else to tell you. A lot of females wonder if they knew the answer why some guys act the way they do it would be a lot easier. Or they just sit there and pondor around what happened lol (funniest shit ever). When it was just a fling. When you think about it sometimes its on a female's end on how she portray herself or how she acts. Also not being true to herself. Read and learn...

"Bottom line--if a man sleep with a woman he don't know or care about SEX is NOT going to make him care. (Us guys stopped doing that years ago) That kind of sex is like scratching an itch. Once a man scratches, he's through. He ain't sitting around thinking about that spot that itched or how good it felt scratching it. He's moving on with his life until that spot itches again and it don't matter which hand he scratches it with, just as long as he gets rid of the itch.

Too many women PRETEND they can handle a sexual fling, but wind up getting caught up and wanting a guy to romance and wine and dine them and pretend we're having a "relationship" when it's NOTHING but a booty call. Come on, ladies, y'all know I'm telling the truth.Unfortunately, ladies, you are part of our problem. You sleep with us BEFORE you know us or what we're about. Having sex with a man does not automatically make that a "relationship".

Many women will deny they think like this but I'm speaking from personal experience. Also, ladies know when their men are fooling around and still turn a blind eye by getting mad at the other woman. Now, what kind of sense does that make? Why should that woman make YOU (a total stranger) a priority in her life? IF HE DID NOT MARRY YOU HE IS STILL SINGLE. The "other woman" is not breaking up a "happy home". Many women marry men who were cheating BEFORE they walked down the aisle and then are SHOCKED that a fancy wedding dress or an expensive walk down the aisle didn't change who he was. Why should he change? YOU let him know it was acceptable by sticking around that long.

Ladies, start living with your eyes OPEN. Most shady men give themselves away one way or another, usually before the first 30 days. Women have to stop "rewarding" unfaithful men by pretending it ain't happening.

All of us Men do not cheat. I do not cheat on my lady so don't buy the hype. I know other guys who do not but many men WILL cheat if there are NO real penalties for it. Stop jumping into bed with guys YOU DON'T KNOW. That means fewer opportunities for men to cheat. Women have to STOP being so afraid to ask the important questions that would reveal his TRUE lifestyle. Worry LESS about what kind of job he has and what kind of car he drives and encourage him to talk about his past, particularly his past with women. OPEN those ears and listen. Does he put down his ex-women and blame them for everything? And don't be so vain. You are NOT a better woman than his last. If he dogged her out, you will probably be NEXT. Observe him when you are with him. Do you have his home number? Work number? Have you seen where he lives? Where he works? Is he secretive? Did you ask if he's married or engaged? How does he treat other people? Listen to what he says, NOT what you want to hear.

Stop INTERPRETING the meaning of what he says to fit your purposes. If he says, "I'm not lookin' for nothing right now" -- DON'T tell yourself, "Aw, he just scared of getting hurt. I can change his mind.." NO YOU CAN'T. He said exactly what the hell he meant. Men don't have to lie when so many Women are already DEAF.

If you can't answer BASIC questions about a man DON'T OPEN YOUR LEGS. I could kinda understand back in the days when sex wouldn't KILL people but now? There's no excuse and if a Woman takes that huge risk of sleeping with a STRANGER then she better protect herself -- sexually AND emotionally.

Show our a$$ to the door if we pressure you for sex too soon. Don't be afraid to be alone. After you give our a$$ some you will probably be alone anyway but now you feel like a fool. In other words, take your time and check us out. if we REALLY like you, we'll stick around. BUT if you decided to sleep with a man you hardly know, PROTECT yourself and keep your expectations to ZERO. We do not owe you a relationship or another date just because you had sex with us.

That's not how it works, baby.I have TOO many female friends who give me horror stories that could have been avoided if they'd done their homework first OR moved SLOWER before giving up the panties. I try as a Man to give them the best advice I can but that won't mean a damn thing if females continue to live in a dream world.

You are TOTALLY RESPONSIBLE for your own sexual behavior the same as I am. Blaming the man won't change a damn thing. Females have t o look in the mirror and take SOME of the blame for what's wrong with their relationships.

Let me end by saying....








Women are going to have to raise their standards if they expect Men to do it.

The question is, are my beautiful females up to the challenge? Are you willing to be strong and stop taking the easy way out? Ladies, ladies, ladies, hit me back with some truth, not some bullsh#t. I don't want to hear: "What you said don't refer to me 'cause I got my sh#t together and I'm a proud women who intimidates men and I never made no mistakes, it's those other women who do things like that."No, no, no! I don't want to hear you putting yourself on a pedestal because I KNOW you've made mistakes.

Yesterday is the past. Tomorrow is the future. Today is a GIFT, that is why it is called the PRESENT. Making the simple complicated is easy. Making the complicated simple requires extreme CREATIVITY. Work to achieve NOT to acquire....

Peace Out!!!

A Powerful Song...."cater to you"

This song explains it all. I can say I have no problem catering to my man if he is doing right. I think that most females have an ego to go out their way to give what their man deserve or either they don't believe females should do a certain thing, or thats just not them cause its out of their character. What's wrong with cooking for your man when he had a long day at work, or he's been working really hard and he asked for a back rub or wanting his feet rub. If you know he is good for it there is absolutley nothing wrong with catering to him when he is down, hurting, from a long day.
