101 followers yay.. and thank you :]

I love it when I have photoshoots, I'm always around people that are older than me for the most part.. a mature crowd. But it gets even better when we are able to build friendships.. outside of me just modeling for them, or them just taking photos of me.

So yesterday, I was told that "All women, especially young attractive ones, are able to get whatever they want from a man. Many women have their rules about what kinds of guys they'll marry, or just what they want in general from a man: 'I will marry rich', 'I want a big family', 'I want a big house', 'I want a man that can care for me' ---when dealing with a woman who knows exactly what she wants, it can be dangerous for man.. because most men are weak-minded when it comes to the opposite sex. When he's her target, it will be extremely hard for him to get out of her reach." He also mentioned how a lady will "pick" through men until she's pleased with ones qualities.

I laughed when I heard him say all of this, because a lot of it sounds very familiar from us women. This is a bad quality if you're one of those women with such high standards.. those are usually the women that are trying to tie a man down lol. But I just figured I'd mention what he said, because I personally needed to hear that... it gave me that "YOU HAVE THE POWER!!!!" feel lmao ..duuumb!

Anyway, here's a few shots from a few of the photographers that I worked with this past week..


Kimberly Murray was the person that took this photo of me.. I just love her energy when we shoot, she's so sweet :]


And Melissa did these last two here...



oh!! and here's some highlights... I rode on the back of my buddys motorcycle last week and fell in love with it lol. It's weird because that was my 3rd time ever riding on one, but man I had an amazing time... and we went FAST! Not carelessly though, I wanted to feel what the speed was like, and I sure did at 120mph hahaha. Amazing. and now I am addicted. I want one!!! But I must keep talking myself out of that, I don't need to ever own a motorcycle lol... they're dangerous. I will ride on the back of one as often as possible though :]

I was taken out to eat this past Saturday. And enjoyed the night with like 7 other people lol.

My sushi was so good super crunch rolls.. salmon on top, crab inside mmhmm




That was my view from across the room.. we had our own personal room at the restaurant where we also had to take off our shoes and ate the traditional way :]
We went and hung out at one of their houses afterwards.. listening to music, rapping and singing the songs together.. then we went out to this club called Tongue and Groove lol.. I raised an eyebrow at that name too lol! That was my first time going out to a nightclub this year, and it was very much so well worth it! They took so many photos while we were dancing at the club and even did video mode hahaha.. I dont know who has the photos, but if I see them.. I will share! UPDATE: literally not even 10min after I posted this, they tagged me in a few on facebook hahaha

You ain't nothin but a vulture

This song has been on my mind since yesterday. I know most of you have heard it already. But It doesn't help that we also danced to it in class (I know two different dances to this song) but then lastnight I downloaded this and really listened to the words. The first verse is def. enough said.. it hits me hard



I'm not feeling so well this morning. Something spoiled my mood and gave me plenty to think about. I've been sitting here for like 2 hours.. thinking. Although, I'm not even surprised by this news. I've typed so many sentences and backspaced them away, I'm rambling and too busy pondering.

update: this song keeps on popping up everywhere. here's the first dance routine that I learned to this song, John James choreographed, and Brandon aka B-Krazi is dancing in it with him.. they just posted this tonight.

Umm..kanye west video if you havent seen it.

now what the heck lol... talk about strong symbolism.



Aside from everything else...did you notice the Water Bearer pouring water in representation of the sunsign Aquarius? Which of course is probably about 2012.. being that we will be in the year of Aquarius during that time. And of course they always have to include Kemet.. look at his big gold chain.
Then I found this video



Hmm.. out of control. I'm not gonna get deep into talking about this stuff during this post, but what do you think?


ANYWAY on a health tip. I will end this with an email that my manager sent to me.. very informative for your everyday living.


HEADACHE? EAT FISH!

Eat plenty of fish -- fish oil helps prevent headaches..

So does ginger, which reduces inflammation and pain.



HAY FEVER? EAT YOGURT!

Eat lots of yogurt before pollen season.

Also-eat honey from your area (local region) daily.



TO PREVENT STROKE DRINK TEA!

Prevent build-up of fatty deposits on artery walls with regular doses of tea. (actually, tea suppresses appetite and keeps the pounds from invading....Green tea is great for our immune system)!



INSOMNIA (CAN'T SLEEP?) HONEY!

Use honey as a tranquilizer and sedative.



ASTHMA? EAT ONIONS!!!!

Eating onions helps ease constriction of bronchial tubes. (onion packs place on chest helped the respiratory ailments and actually made breathing better).



ARTHRITIS? EAT FISH, TOO!!

Salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines actually prevent arthritis. (fish has omega oils, good for our immune system)



UPSET STOMACH? BANANAS - GINGER!!!!!

Bananas will settle an upset stomach.

Ginger will cure morning sickness and nausea..



BLADDER INFECTION? DRINK CRANBERRY JUICE!!!!

High-acid cranberry juice controls harmful bacteria.



BONE PROBLEMS? EAT PINEAPPLE!!!

Bone fractures and osteoporosis can be prevented by the manganese in pineapple.



MEMORY PROBLEMS? EAT OYSTERS!

Oysters help improve your mental functioning by supplying much-needed zinc.



COLDS? EAT GARLIC!

Clear up that stuffy head with garlic. (remember, garlic lowers cholesterol, too.)



COUGHING? USE RED PEPPERS!!

A substance similar to that found in the cough syrups is found in hot red pepper. Use red (cayenne) pepper with caution-it can irritate your tummy.



BREAST CANCER? EAT Wheat, bran and cabbage

Helps to maintain estrogen at healthy levels.



LUNG CANCER? EAT DARK GREEN AND ORANGE AND VEGGIES!!!

A good antidote is beta carotene, a form of Vitamin A found in dark green and orange vegetables.



ULCERS? EAT CABBAGE ALSO!!!

Cabbage contains chemicals that help heal both gastric and duodenal ulcers.



DIARRHEA? EAT APPLES!

Grate an apple with its skin, let it turn brown and eat it to cure this condition. (Bananas are good for this ailment)



CLOGGED ARTERIES? EAT AVOCADO!

Mono unsaturated fat in avocados lowers cholesterol.



HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE? EAT CELERY AND OLIVE OIL!!!

Olive oil has been shown to lower blood pressure.

Celery contains a chemical that lowers pressure too.



BLOOD SUGAR IMBALANCE? EAT BROCCOLI AND PEANUTS!!!

The chromium in broccoli and peanuts helps regulate insulin and blood sugar.



Kiwi: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, Vitamin E & fiber. It's Vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.



Apple: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low Vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of Vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke..



Strawberry: Protective fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protects the body from cancer causing, blood vessels clogging free radicals. (Actually, any berry is good for you..they're high in anti-oxidants and they actually keep us young...........blueberries are the best and very versatile in the health field........they get rid of all the free-radicals that invade our bodies)



Orange : Sweetest medicine. Taking 2 - 4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessen the risk of colon cancer..



Watermelon: Coolest Thirst Quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione which helps boost our immune system.. They are also a key source of lycopene - the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients

Found in watermelon are Vitamin C & Potassium. (watermelon also has natural substances [natural SPF sources] that keep our skin healthy, protecting our skin from UV rays)

Guava & Papaya: Top awards for Vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high Vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber which helps prevent constipation.

Papaya: is rich in carotene, this is good for your eyes. (also good for gas and indigestion)

Tomatoes: are very good as a preventative measure for men, keeps those prostrate problems from invading their bodies......GOOD AS MEDICINE..



Wasn't that informative? People eat so crappy nowadays and never pay attention to what they're putting in, so pass this along to your family.
I knew about a few of these.. but the oyster thing was surprising.. even more of a reason for me to love them lol.
