Why do we love the "Bad Boy"

So I tuned into The Wendy "How you doing" Williams (don't judge me) because I heard Jaheim was going to be performing. His latest album is in heavy rotation in my Zune as of late and I own all of the previous albums as well. It's not just his amazing voice which is so reminiscent of old soul crooners but I am so attracted to his "street" edge (and ashamed to admit it). This made me ponder the "woman say they want a good man but go for the bad boy" argument. My late 20's was my last indulgence with "bad boy" he had tattoos everywhere, an AMAZING body, and a pension for running the streets. We knew each other when we were younger and reconnected. I though he just wanted to be friends (1st mistake) so I paid his overtures no mind, and I even remember saying to my best friend that "He was SO not the man for me, he is not the type of man I want or need as a partner"(famous last words). Fast forward a couple of months him chasing me hard, I gave in and began a relationship with him. On top of that I had the nerve to fall in love (2nd mistake), well long story short after a couple of months of dating, a break up, a year of off and on again, and a marriage proposal by text message (yet again another blog post for another time) I finally walked away. A couple of month later when I wasn't looking I met my current beau the "good guy". He is polar opposite no street edge or tattoos, he goes to church every Sunday, he is close with his family, works 2 jobs, and treats me like gold. He is everything I could have asked for in a man plus some, he didn't come how I imagined him but he defiantly came the way I needed him. So I guess my "bad boy" fantasies will be reserved for my Jaheim albums, because my "good man" reality is so much better.


PS- Jaheim's album "Another Round" will be available for digital download for $5 during the month of April, its and excellent album.

Transition Staple Style....for Now

OK so after really battling with my hair for the past two months while transitioning I finally hit my stride! I have finally found a transition style that does not make me looking like who did it and ran at work on a daily basis. I have decided that small two strand twist are going to my staple. I know its not really a big revelation, lots of naturals do two strand twist while transitioning but this is the first time that I've tried them this small on my fickle hair and it stayed and look really nice. I curl the relaxed ends with satin covered sponge roller over night (I love those rollers) wake up in the morning shake and go. I've has to re-twist a few here and there but for the most part it been a week and they are still holding strong (also thanks to Cantu Shea Butter Break Cure Strengthening Treatment and Coconut Oil) I'm going to attempt to co-wash with them in this weekend......so keep your fingers crossed


I know I'm extra lazy with the pictures.....I'm working on it!
