Going Places

Hello My Smart is Sexy Loves,

I’ve missed you! I’ve been so busy moving recently but I haven’t forgotten about you! I finally got a chance to ride the metro that the city of Los Angeles worked so hard to build and I have to say I definitely liked it! It’s funny though, as an Angeleno our public transportation has always been like looking for your soulmate in vegas and our traffic like that friend that just doesn’t get the hint, that we approach something like the metro in a relatively excited way (whaaaaaat I don’t have to drive?!).  My friends and I took the metro to downtown for dinner where it can be a pain to park so it made the ride so carefree! On the ride over the topic in conversation became about our generation, the millennials — our desire to see more, do more, and become more I believe has defined our generation. But where does that put us? Are we super selfies or super accomplishers or superheroes in our own ways….perhaps all, perhaps none. Damn. One thing is true, success drives every human being to keep going. Beg to differ, comment below– I would love to hear your thoughts!

Hello Smart is Sexy loves!

Today, is one of those days, for whatever reason that gets me thinking about the simpler things in life. I recently wrote about how to let things go and how they can affect you less if you consider every moment just a passing memory. Because ultimately that is just what they are. How they affect you is something else, and that is what we try and deal with every day.

The Broot

Sometimes our hair needs a little TLC, more than the ordinary shampoo, rinse, deep conditioner, satin pillowcase…I’m talking about some fruits and veggies!!!

Whaaaa????? No i’m not drunk, I wrote that right. Guys can do this too, but hair long enough to pass your ears really benefit from it the most, so gentleman- with those gorgeous manes this is for you too, I’ve seen you! I don’t know where you are hiding but listen up too!
