A Different Kind of Love

I am itching for you.

We’ve been together for so long. Our intimate time is penciled on my calendar.

In preparation for this weekend’s steamy session —

I go to the drugstore to look for the product with the best slip.

Slippery when wet, is what is desired, when I brush up against you.

With great contentment, the date is here.

Our session begins with a shower.

Slowly, I wash you.

You’re soft.

I massage and coat you.

You hardened.

Fingers are used for separation.

My body bends forward like a F without a dash.

The hot sensations are hitting my mind.

Feel good moans become me.

I stand up and step aside.

The build-up is rinsed away.

Outside the shower, I stare at the mirror’s reflection.

You are no longer elongated. You have shrunken.

I am pleased.

You look good on me.

I gently towel and wrap you.

Hours later.

Intertwined. Braided together.

I fall asleep.

My hair is did.


Until the next time – I adore you for reading my blog,


The Selfie

GNO_Hair_25jan2014_1aIn the age of over saturation of technology at one’s fingertips, I have succumbed to taking the bathroom photo.  What prompted me to take a collage of self photos was the fact that I was having a good hair day.  After 2 takes of washing, styling and washing and styling again – the fro’ became a fist full of curls.

To achieve this look I used: Paul Mitchell The Conditioner + Hawaiian Silky Gel Activator “Dry Look” + eco styler Olive Oil Styling Gel.  The second time around I did not use shampoo to wash my hair. I just rinsed out the products thoroughly that were left behind.  The Conditioner (I applied first) + Hawaiian Silky Gel (I applied second)  while in the shower. The eco styler gel I raked and smoothed outside of the shower.  I would have done the last gel application in the shower but Mama’s hot water don’t last but so long and then it turns to ice, ice, baby. (I know, I know – I’m dating myself – bear with me).

Thank you for reading my hair chronicles, I am in the process of discovering my technique and what products reign on my crown.  I’ll keep you updated what happens next time with my hairdo until then…

I love you. Your existence is connected to mine.

Thank you for reading my blog,


I Got My Mojo Back!

I’ve been sluggish for the past few weeks. I have not been motivated to work-out my body! Now-a-days, exercise is a constant part of my routine to maintain an optimal existence. So for the past few weeks, I’ve mediated and prayed to jump start my momentum! Well, today was that day – I woke-up inspired to go to the YMCA. As a result of my manifestation, I had a good work-out to get my rear in gear! I am so grateful! I feel so good when I work-out!

My motto is: Go hard or go home! Motto 2: Exercise does a body good!

On deck soonKickboxing and the Brooklyn Bridge Boot-camp!

Until the next time – I adore you for reading my blog,

Be Beautiful. Be Interesting. Be You.

The essence of being pretty isn’t about being perfect. It’s about being and feeling our most beautiful inside. Traveling to that Zen place of acceptance and inner harmony – The secret of doing that is to accept our imperfections. I prefer to think of them as character elements that make us interesting.

Today, we have more options than ever: We can go from looking casual to looking glamorous, from looking sophisticated to looking outrageous, from fitting in to making a statement. Beauty and style isn’t the only domain to define ourselves – Our splendor should radiant the truth of who we are. Instead of feeling inadequate “I have to live up to the standards of society” – See yourself as a creator of your beauty. The divine lies within us all – Give birth to the beauty within.

Be Beautiful. Be Interesting. Be You.
