Weighting through the Storm

By Friday, August 26 my local grocery store was wiped out!!!  Irene had us buying up every loaf of bread, case of water, generators and even Ramen Noodles.  It was no surprised to me that I received an email from one of my best friends on this Friday, but what was surprising was the text and tone of this email.  She seemed a little panicked...not panicked about Irene but more so panicked about sticking to her diet while eating non-perishable foods.  See me and this friend are weight talking, losing, gaining, eating, laughing and everything more to do with weight kind of friends.  We talk about it all!!!  From how fast we need to walk to lose 5 pounds in a week to how to keep your man turned on by the concept of "more curves the merrier."  She keeps me motivated and I try to do the same for her.  Well she had posed an excellent and quite mindboggling question.  How were we going to stick to healthy options during Hurricane Irene?  Upon first thought I had no clue what to say but after more thought I realized that not all non-perishable foods are loaded with fat, sugar, artificial flavors and more.  She helped me that day…I went to the grocery store confident that there were better options then chips and dip and Little Debbie snack cakes.  Every BIG girl needs a friend to talk it out with and on Friday, August 26, I was happy to have her!

Armoured Jewelry

The biggest dilema when preparing to step out of my house is deciding what to wear...something that matches my jewelry and doesn't make my arms look fat!  Well last night I failed!!!  The dress was hot, and the jewelry was even hotter (by the way, my Madam of Glam piece arrived) but my arms looked HUGE!  Not Free Willy HUGE more like Godzilla HUGE.  And yes, I know half the women in America think they're fat when they look in the mirror but if they really knew what "looking fat" felt like there would be more slit wrist from day-to-day. 

On another note, last night I attended the J. Pierre concert.  J is an artist that I promote and he rocked the house!  Check out the pictures and video.

Rock The Globe

Well I didn't quite rock the globe with my first post but I sure as heck shook the city.  I would have never imagined that the same day of my first post would mark the strongest earthquake to hit MY City, D.C., in over 100 years.  That earthquake left me a lot of things...concerned about global warming, speechless at the power of GOD and wondering if my newest bottle of perfume, "Reb'l fleur" by Rihanna, had fallen off my nightstand.  And even if you don't believe in GOD, Global Warming or even Rihanna's ability to help you smell must believe in something of a higher being after yesterday's catastrophic event.  Buildings collapsed, cars moved parking spaces and my head spun. But thank GOD my bottle of perfume never budged!

It's About BBB Time

Now that I've had this blog for over a month and feel that the design elements are slightly perfect (my OCD coming out) I can now submit my first post.  This blog is intended to do so many things, not just for you but for me.  It's my platform to express so much of what I wish to share and at times just have to get off my chest!  I'm passionate about almost all things and love to let others know what I know.  Whether it's about a HOT new dress I bought or a CD that sucks.  If I think it, I will most likely say it.  And here is where that will all go down!  And speaking of new things that I just bought...a Madam of Glam necklace that I'm so desperately waiting to arrive in the mail.  Trust, pics of this stunning piece ON ME are coming soon!
