Chihuahua Seizures


     I wasn't home when it happened, but I was told our little Sophie had a seizure today. Poor baby, huh?!? She's OK now, but it freaked the family out, nonetheless.........

(I think they gave her some bacon and she snapped out of it!)

BBBRRRRR San Diego!!

38 degrees San Diego, really!?!?!

Frosty, gusty night for Southern California

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES—It's still autumn in Southern California but it's feeling a lot like winter.
Temperatures are plunging Monday night, especially in the region's mountains and valleys.
The National Weather Service says a cold air mass is making frost a possibility in inland areas from Santa Barbara to San Diego counties. Temperatures could dip into the 20s with winds between 25 and 35 mph.
The service has issued frost advisories through 9 a.m. Tuesday for several communities and recommends keeping animals and sensitive plants indoors overnight.
Bigger cities will feel their share of cold too.
Overnight lows are forecast at 34 degrees for downtown Santa Barbara, 40 degrees for downtown Los Angeles and 41 degrees for downtown San Diego.
A slow warming trend is expected to begin later Tuesday.
Of course I had to snuggle with these two....look who was burrowing under the blankets.....



(Spoiled Sophie!!!!)
BTW, YES.....I'm one of those people who sleep with their dogs......

Sephora Holiday Shopping.....

When in doubt, get a female friend/ cousin/ sister/ mother/ auntie (you get the idea) a SEPHORA GIFT CARD!! I saw this video, and wanted to just spend spend spend!

PS- I was flipping through the new 2010 Sephora Holiday catalog yesterday, and I usually LOVE the makeup looks on each page, but this year, the makeup ads SUCK!I think this looks totally ridiculous! ALL IMO, of course!  :)

(Really, Sephora?!?!)

Thanksgiving Delights

Thanksgiving Delights

On Thanksgiving Day we’re thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.

For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.

We’re grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.

The list of all we’re grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

Waiting To Exhale sequel "Getting To Happy".......

     OK, so I just peed on myself a little.......I am browsing Amazon.com, because they FLOOD my email inbox with DUMB suggestions that I usually don't give a damn, and due to my recent purchase of "For Colored Girls" novel about a month ago, I got something that caught my eye.

SIDEBAR: Every Monday ANYWAY I go browsing for junk to add to my Amazon.com "wish-list" to enter the $100,000 drawing. Try it, its free, and if any of you WIN this drawing in December, you are SO paying my rent for 6 months........

     Anyway, I got a "suggestion" for the Terry McMillan novel "The Interruption of Everything", which I already own and have read at least 10 times, but I kept browsing and I see THIS:

 Have I REALLY been under a rock to have not known that this WTE sequel was even a possibility, yet alone written, edited and already published??? Was "Getting To Happy" even mentioned in Ebony, Essence, Jet or even Black Hair magazine? Well, since I'm cheap, and don't subscribe to those magazines anyway, I guess I WOULD HAVE never known. DAMN. So, of course, I counted my pennies, and bought it! SUPER excited!!! I wonder if a movie sequel is coming in the next few years as well? I wonder if Whitney Houston, Loretta Devine, Angela Basset and Lela Rochon would be willing to revisit those characters we have grown to love? Someone better call Tyler Perry or Forest Whitaker! I bet Tyler Perry probably already bought the "Getting To Happy" movie rights....watch!

You're very pretty.

Thank you very much!

Ask me anything


     Diwali is a joyous festival of lights, celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Buddhists (Dharmic traditions) and the festive spirit expressed by those of "any, all and no faith." Though celebrated for different reasons, it has evolved from a pan-Indian festivity uniting multicultural diversity with worldwide cultures.
The very foundation of Indian civilization is based on the pluralistic acceptance embodied in the ancient Vedic scriptures; the oft used perennial Vedic saying: "Ekam Sat Vipra, Bahudha Vadanti," meaning, "The Truth is One. The Realized Ones describe the One Truth in several ways." Acceptance of this edict gives citizens space to express their differences while finding a common ground. And, closer to home, Diwali shares a special connection with American values as it exemplifies the ideals of "E Pluribus Unum," or, "out of many, one."
    Hinduism is the contemporary word used for the monotheistic "Sanatana Dharma" or Eternal Order. The joy and peace in human life is based on observance of this eternal order. In the Hindu approach, an integration of spirit, mind and body is emphasized for pursuit of happiness (ananda). Festivals play a very important role in Hinduism as they manifest this integration.

Do you notice you get more male attention when your hair is curly? do you think Men really notice- do u get stares from them? what are your thoughts

Sadly, I get more male attention when my hair is straight. In LA, I feel the men are just as superficial as the women. Not all, of course......

Hair Length Goal/ Hair Inspiration?!?!

     People sometimes ask me, "what's your hair goal" or "How long are you growing your hair"? At first, along with a lot of other women, I wanted to grow my hair LONG, or as long as it would go. When I was a kid, I always dreamed of hair down my back, free and flowing in the wind. The only time I've ever had my hair like that was when I had gotten my first perm, which I believe was when I was in the 3rd grade. My hair was all the way down my back, and I can vividly remember at birthday party of mine, at a rollerskating rink no less, where I was rollerskating and I was able to "whip my hair back and forth" up and down the rink!! I loved it! Sadly, due to perms and hair mismanagement throughout the remaining years, my hair has never retained that length again, until now!
     While I'm no longer obsessed with long hair, I am kinda curious to see just how long my hair will grow. I found this picture, somewhere on a website and/or Google search, and as of today, this is going to be my "hair length goal" or "Hair inspiration"! My curls are a lot tighter than hers obviously, but I think I want my hair to hang like "that" and at that length UN-STRETCHED. Can I do it?? We shall see.......

I like the "curly" left side better!

what can i do to speed up my natural hair journey??

I wish I can answer that, but sadly I can't. Check out this link for a "Solid Healthy Hair Care Regimen"

How do you feel abpout the Maxiglide...i see you have 1 and i've been thinking of getting 1 :)

HEY THERE! I use the MAXIGLIDE for a "light press", meaning when my hair is already straight, and I want to polish it up a bit. The MAXIGLIDE is safer on my hair than a regular flatiron, however it doesn't get my hair "bone" straight like my "HAI" flat iron. Like I said, its safer, due to its "steam-burst", but if I HAD to choose, MAXIGLIDE would not be my first choice. Keep in mind, it doesn't get MY 3C hair bone straight, but it very well may work for you! Hope this helps!

Do you have breast implants?

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! No, I just have tig-ol-bitties!!

Ask me anything

How come you use 2 different flat irons when you straighten?---Camille
