Bangin’ Brazilian Butt Workouts !!



Ok Ladies, I know I’m not the only one that wasn’t particularly blessed with a ” Coke-Bottled shape”, a mean backside, or what Miss Phaedra would refer to as a ” Donkey Booty”.  It seems like the media is capitalizing on the curves of some of our most famous celebrities, and we’re left wondering whats the trick?… Butt injections are the new craze in the celebrity inner circle, but they are very dangerous and very costly.. and quite frankly aint nobody got time to have no foreign substance injected in my cheeks lol!!  So I’ve been researching different exercises to enhance the firmness and shape of my butt, and the most popular is the Brazilian Butt Workout.  The workout is composed of  11 different techniques to whip your butt in shape, and accentuate your curves.

Angela Simmons and Nikki Minaj Show Off Their Waist Length Hair


Angela Simmons and Nicki Minaj wants you to know, “I have some long hair up under this weave!”

Over the past few months, some of our fav celeb women have bonded together and started showing off their natural hair sans the weave and wigs to prove that for them, weaves are an accessory, not a necessity.

While showing off a photo of Angela Simmons freshly blow-dried and pressed hair, her stylist Nikk Nelson wrote:


“What a healthy head of natural hair looks like after a good extension job! […] Black women can have long hair without weave. She wears a weave to protect her natural hair. We keep it natural and healthy! #getpressed #getaweave #wegrowhair”

A few weeks back, Nicki Minaj also shared a similar photo of her almost waist-length hair with the caption, “#Longhairdontcare #hangtime #ImaWearItOutWhenItTouchesMyASS”


Curlies, What do you think???… Is this really their hair?

Brandi Cohen Interview for The Big Natural Hair Project

by Leon Dale

Q: How long have you been natural?

A: I have been natural for 7 years.


Q: Why did you go natural?

A: At the time that I went natural, there wasn’t a lot of info on natural hair care and the term “going natural” wasn’t popular yet. Really, I just wanted to stop relaxing my hair, nothing deep at the time. It was costly and my very thick hair would never get completely straight. My hairstylist would relax my hair and then apply a lot of heat, sooo all of the heat was defeating the purpose of the relaxer. My hair was long, but not very healthy. I was at a crossroads, because I didn’t see “going natural” as an option. I was watching an episode of Girlfriends and was captivated by Joan (Tracee Ellis Ross’s) hair.

My yoga teacher, who is much younger and much wiser than I, posted this today:

My tomorrow is a reflection of what I do today.

I seriously needed to read that. It’s an affirmation. Affirmations are reminders to ourselves that what we can accomplish our goals, that we can invite what we want into our lives. Do you want to be healthy? Avoid drama? Make new friends? Affirmations remind you to take steps daily toward these, or toward whatever it is you want.

I have been feeling, lately, that I’ve lost sight of some of the goals I had set for myself. I’ve been feeling – well, off. Part of that is because I’m falling into my own trap of self-doubt, pity, and of a huge fear of failure. Guess what? The more I feel like a pitiful failure, the more I affirm this.

So, here are a few of my goals: To be a more dedicated writer, a dedicated yogi, a happy person, a loyal friend – among other things. All this week, I’ve been up at 5:15 and on the yoga mat by 5:30, the first time in a long while. I’m up at 11 on a Saturday, making a blog post – when I could be asleep or sitting at a club, listening to jazz. But I’m happy. And tomorrow I will continue: Will get up, hit the mat, write a story, go to a photo shoot, and write yet another story.

What are your goals, and what are you doing today to reach them?
