I love summer but the humidity, ugh! I can't wait til October when they have Music in the Park at a small park near where I live.. Every Friday evening they feature a local band or singing group, so I grab my lawn chair and chill out

I look forward to the fall because the HEAT and HUMIDITY in Florida is making my outdoor life (the little I have) absolutely miserable.

I use  Shea Moisture products and like them so far. I haven't seen the product you've mentioned but I'm going to be on the lookout.


Christelyn, your hair looks fabulous, what do you do for your edges?

@bellechose @RhondaSpeights be would be surprised at the number of ww who seek counseling and therapy.


I recently had lunch with ww friends of mine. One is a medical doctor and she is in counseling with a therapist. I asked her for the therapist's contact info. One of the other women gave me contact info of a Christian counselor and I will be contacting her because my friend said she is covered under my insurance( we work for the same company).


There's plenty of resources to help us bw with  the trauma many of us have faced, we just have to get past the stigma.

I was covering at another hospital when I noticed one of the employees, a bw was wearing this beautiful color of red lipstick. I couldn't take my eyes off her beautiful lips. I finally approached her , and complimented her on the color in front of her colleagues .

@bellechose 4 year olds are taught how to look people in the eye and say hi..


You are so right..when did we lose that basic human interaction?


@EmpressNK,  your post is refreshing and supports my belief that men of all races view black women as an option but we keep "othering" ourselves out of any opportunities to create viable relationships with them.

Wow, Tracy this is a great feature of physically challenged men. This humanizes them which isn't always the case with society. It also debunks the myth that physically impaired people are asexual or not aesthetically attractive.


@dani-BBW I agree with you, I would have no problem meeting the men featured who are single and yes they would be held to my vetting standards.

@The Working Home Keeper @Golden eyes As far as racial issues, I tend to have a more detached view/approach.


Me too, I rather facts and higher critical thinking help me come to a conclusion instead of my emotions. If I allow my emotions to dictate how I view the world, then every time the news begins with " white cop shot  an unarmed black man", I may have unfounded suspicion of law enforcement.

@Geekette221B @SirLoinDeBeef If you go to any Black American family house party today, I guarantee, Grandpop will toss his cane aside and get down with a Soul Train.

I loved Soul Train. I first viewed the show at my cousin's home in Detroit. I was absolutely mesmerized by all the beautiful black people dancing.

I grew up in rural upper Michigan (lower peninsula) and rarely saw a show that featured blacks. Oh but the best part of Soul Train, was the commercials. Afro Sheen, Ultra Sheen, Colt 45 malt liquor (thought it was beer). All the people in the commercials were attractive and cool.

As a young black girl trying to find my identity and self worth in a town dominated by whites and white supremacy, Soul Train and those commercials was the "Black is Beautiful" antidote I needed. When my cousins left the room for a snack during commercials, I stayed anchored lest I miss any models with the Angela Davis afro gracing the TV screen.

I remember the Asian dancer in the first pic of dancers, she was one of my favorites and I absolutely adored Jodi Watley, my goodness, she has hardly aged.

Christelyn, This looks absolutely delicious. I'm trying to find  a place to purchase homemade pesto to create the last dish you featured with the roasted veggies. While the recipe is simple, I'm not yet sure I want to invest in a food processor.


The only problem with roasting is it is too hot at this time in Florida to use the oven.

@Brenda55 @Lili2009 @Alannah I rarely heard the word fetized until I visited interracial dating blogs. I usually would see the  term in connection to having an unusual attraction to a body part like feet.


I have to admit I even questioned if I was fetising white men but after careful evaluation of my attraction to them I came to the conclusion....Nope I just find them damn sexy!

@Daisy_inthe_Field The media, they have a "look" that they deemed to be the idea of beauty. I don't watch reality shows but most of the women, black and white shown during the trailers have a " cookie cutter" look.


If you're not vigilant, you can internalize this to mean this what men like aesthetically in women.  It's a gross generalization but accepted as fact by many.

Those like myself who are not considered conventionally attractive think that men find us boring. We, erroneously lump all men together and convince ourselves that men have a "type" (and of course we are not the type).

But, we are the type for some hot and hunky guy, we've just been brainwashed to think otherwise. When a cute guy is engaging me I have the tendency to ask him "are you talking to me???".

Never underestimate super conservative environments. on the Black Female Interracial Marriage blog there are NUMEROUS pics of interracial marriages depicting WM/BW in the Mormon church.
