I’m just going to leave this here...
Please, for the love of God, stop buying Tresemme Perfectly Undone conditioner. It is sold out everywhere. I can’t get it at CVS, Giant, or Target! Only Walmart and Walgreens have it available and only online.
As most of you probably don’t know (not shade, I didn’t know either), the US is selecting its figure skating team this weekend for the 2018 Olympics. For the ladies side, my girl Mirai Nagasu made the team and that’s pretty much all I care about.
I’m posting this video because it reminds me of my friends whenever we go to brunch. We dress to the nines and waltz in like we’re old, old money related to Lord Calvert, First Baron Baltimore or some mess.
Honestly, my opinion of Aly Raisman has increased tenfold since 2016. Not that I thought she was horrible. I did think she was hogging Simone’s spotlight a bit.
Hey, y’all! The National Museum of African-American History and Culture is attempting to put together a definitive anthology of hip-hop and it needs our help to do it (if we are inclined to help).
I am sure that Ghana is beautiful. But, ummm...who is my, I mean our, gracious host? Anyone know?
So, I just joined a gym and besides the swimming workout classes, I want to try the Barre class as well. Has anyone ever done a barre (read: ballet-like) class? Do I need to buy some ballet slippers like I wore when I was a kid?
A Nepalese woman had enough of British tourists trying to bargain for lower prices of her goods. She chases (and throws rocks!) at a British tourist and her son simultaneously chastising them for having enough money to hike in Nepal, but not enough to pay 150 rupees (1 British pound) for tea. Video below!
It’s the day of Beyonce’s birth and her family and friends celebrated by getting in formation.
I’m on vacation all week, so here’s some more funny!
Ed Skrein was cast to play Ben Daimio in the Hellboy reboot. The Daimio character has historically been an Asian character in the comics.
Okay, I promise I’m not on a SheaMoisture hate campaign (lies). I received this product as part of my Cocotique box last month (ETA: Actually, several months ago. Just got around to trying it. lol). It’s probably the first soap/body wash that did not dry out my skin.
As all of you are aware Shea Moisture is awful. We won’t go back and re-hash how they have decided to throw away the customer base that made them what they are in favor of putting oils in white women’s hair and making said white women look ridiculous.
This is just me being fancy, y’all. I’m just going to Tahiti. Well, more specifically, Moorea.

Gabrielle Douglas is still hustling like a pro out here in these streets. Her agent is a bit better at it than Simone’s in some respects (she also debuted a makeup kit via Beauty Bakery this year).
I’m saying, though. The Obamas have been living my dream life. Vacationing in the Carribbean with their billionaire friends; spending only the required amount of time in NYC to sign a massive book deal; and now, ironically, hanging out in Moorea. I say ironically because I am actually planning a vacation to Moorea in…
