Bright: The Sequel Will Be Brighter

Eleven million people tuned into Netflix’s Bright starring Will Smith and fans either liked it or loathed it. Either way it doesn’t matter because it was slated for a sequel before it even hit your queue. Although it was the highest budgeted film in Netflix history, many people hated the movie because it was a…

Let’s Cancel Cuffing Season

I am in no way proposing such a thing because I’m single. After my last (almost decade long on/off) relationship I’ve been happily dating myself (it’s less stressful by far). Back when that relationship started, unlimited texting was expensive and selfies weren’t even selfies yet. Talking was pretty much the only thing we used phones…

Ghosting is Haunting the Dating Scene

Ghosting – Going silent instead of rejecting and or effectively communicating with a romantic partner. Imagine if the screen wasn’t involved in the situation and you were at a bar with a person and mid conversation they just walked away. It wouldn’t be okay and technology has kind of desensitized us to feelings being attached…

Women’s March on Pittsburgh

Why I Marched on Saturday Saturday, January 21st the Women’s March on Pittsburgh wasn’t my first and probably won’t be my last time protesting. Over 25,000 men and women from all walks of life marched from the Pittsburgh City County Building to Market Square. Such a large turnout jam packed the square to the point…

& Presidential Hangover 

On  November 8, 2016 I fell asleep around 10-11 PM after briefly tuning into the election coverage knowing I should’ve continued my Girl Meets World marathon instead. Although I wasn’t ecstatic as I’ve been in the previous presidential elections, I still felt a need to do my civic duty. I vote in every election no…

& 2016 Are You Okay

Last December I made a list of things I hope to see in 2016. Now that we’re officially almost done with 2016 and by some miracle the world has not ended, let’s reflect on a few things that should be understood and most definitely left in the year 2016. Calling Women Whores: It’s not nice!…

& Justice for Some 

Everyone is always quick to quote MLK on race but if he “fixed” the problem he’d be here today… “All lives matter,” is like saying “With liberty and justice for all*” *terms and conditions apply. If all lives truly mattered everyone would be at the protests on the front line. The blind truth is America…

& All Swiped Out

You shouldn’t be able to shop for a soulmate the same way you find your next pair of shoes.  — Me (In a recent conversation with my best friend)   Recently, I was thinking about online dating again and as tech savvy and innovative as I consider myself, I just can’t get down with it….

I know I know. I said the next post would be about fashion finds and what not but I need to get serious for a second. As an avid journalism junkie I feel compelled to give you the facts about Mirina Collections and nothing more and nothing less. In college I was never one to…

& 2016 Subscription

If January is a free trial of 2016, I’m already ready to buy the real deal. A lot of awesomeness has happened so far into 2016 and I’m strapped in ready to see where this roller coaster called life happens to take me. Young African American women in the Pittsburgh area don’t get a lot…

& Happiness Hunting

First and foremost, Happy New Year! The first post of the year is always the hardest but I figured I’d tread on something lightly like New Year’s Resolutions. If you ask me the age old question, “Where do you wanna be in five years?” The answer has always been “happy.” Life is all about discovering…
