Life Lesson: I'm Not Good At Being A Female Friend


Dear Friends,

  Lately, I've been doing a lot of thinking and I've come to realize that I have no female friends. I mean I have some female friends, but there more like distant relatives, that only talk on holidays. It wasn't always like this, who am I kidding, I could never find a good enough female friend to stick around, either they were busy with their families -- mind you, I'm only 21-- or they live too far away, or I just get tired of the relationship and here's why.

    I think my disconnect for females started in first grade, when I had this so called friend -- she wasn't even a friend, she was just someone who just kept popping up. Anyways, this girl, she just had it out for me for no reason.

Relationship Life Lesson: Don't Let Stupid Boys Control You

So, I indirectly know this girl, and I feel the need to share her story just in case someone else is going through the same situation. Before my current relationship,  I knew nothing about boys, neither did I know the games they play. I promise this is not made up, this is actually factual.

(Because of the privacy law on my page, I will, under no circumstances release her personal info)

Miss. Unknown: "I've been with this mystery guy for about three years, on and off. We met at a party, when we saw each other across the room. He walked up to me while a slow jam, they don't know by Jon B. was playing when he asked me for a dance. He was cute, about 6'2" medium brown with really nice waves I just couldn't resist saying yes. While dancing we were talking and found out that we had a lot in common. I gave

Life Lesson: Happy Thanksgiving, Don't Party Too Hard Baby!


Hello World!

Happy late Thanksgiving! Did you have a lot of fun with family and friends, eat a lot of food, play games or eat a lot of food?! I know I did, I had a Haitian and Jamaican Thanksgiving. The food was amazing and the games were ten times the fun because their were more people to play with -- I won four times last night which made my night awesome. Last year, my boyfriend and I were with my family and this year we went with his.

The first house

Life Lesson: Natural Hair Problems and Soultions

Dear Friends,

Lately, I've been having the strongest urge to just go on a whim and cut all of my damn hair off. While crying to my boyfriend, who doesn't know anything about hair, tried to help me as much as he could. Not being able to do much, I just cried to myself in the shower

As a woman, I think it's important that we discuss about our vagina's. Now I know, why would we need to talk about our vagina's but some people may have questions but are afraid to ask them, or may just not know about how to keep your vagina healthy and clean.

As us women mature, our bodies change from the time we're babies until the time we die. We have hormones,

Life Lesson: I'm Allergic To YOU!

Dear Friends,

October has been a shitty month for me. I've been to the hospital more than ever in my whole life time, I had a really bad allergic reaction, I can't go to school, and I have to find a new job.

First things first, let's start out with the allergic reaction. For some of you who don't know, I love animals especially dogs and have been working with them for a little over a year now.

New York Life Lesson: Too Busy for New York

Antonie Henrich

Dear friends,

    Man have I been through it! These past few weeks I got really sick and had to go to the ER. I broke out in hives, couldn't breathe, and was feeling super dizzy. My wonderful mother, because she lives so far away, decided to fly out to see me. First two

Life Lesson: Don't Sneak Into Fashion Week

**Based on a true story**

Dear Peeps,

   I know I'm late but I've just been in and out of the ER these past few days. So to make myself feel better, I'd thought I'd share some of the crazy times that I've had while living in New York. Granted, it slowed down a lot but when I first got here, life was
pretty crazy and I was excited to see what New York had in store for me.

   Fashion Week was popular at school, well duh, Fashion Institute of Technology. Anyways, I had went to the agency fair and tried signing up with some agencies to volunteer in Fashion Week. A few weeks later, didn't hear anything and I was a little down because that would've been something good to put on my resume. Talking with my roommate, I expressed to her that it sucks the agencies only picked a hand full of kids to volunteer for fashion week. She told me that it wasn't a big deal and that
I could sneak in, and she proceeded to shrugge her shoulders. I looked at her like she was a little crazy because to sneak into a place with a lot of security like that wasn't going to be easy. I guess she could tell by what she just told me that I didn't believe her, so she went into detail, "All you have to do is pretend you work for one of the agencies, whatever they say you have to match their lie and boom. Your in".

   I guess I still had a confused look on my face so she continued to say, "If you want we can all go together, I'll show you how to do it." The next day, we got dressed, I had on a black and white dress with wedge heels. My roommate had on all black; sheer shirt, black work pants, black shoes and a black handbag. The guy we were going with, had a big DSLR canon camera, he wore all black as well so it looked as if I was an assistant, she was a publicist, and the guy was a camera man. On the way there I started getting nervous, I've never done this before and then the fact that she didn't even tell us what to say I started over thinking and became even more nervous, the guy we were with was a mutual friend of ours and he was sweating like a whore in church. Almost there, I couldn't help but to ask, "So how are we going to do this?" As I laughed nervously trying to play it off. She just simply said, "We go in there, we say we work for so and so agency and boom. We're in there." I wanted to punch this girl when ever she said boom, like it was something so simple and easy.

   We get there and we all split the cab fair, got out the cab and walked up the long stairs to the Lincoln Mercedes Fashion Week. We stayed outside for a little until my roommate came up with a
plan, she saw the entrance and tried to walk in when the security guard stopped us and said ID? She said she had forgot it but her boss was waiting for her and she's going to be mad if she doesn't get in there. The security guard understood her complaints but said he wasn't allowed because of the threats they've been getting, so he told us to go around to the back. It didn't make sense to me why Fashion Week would get threats but okay, we went around to the back and tried to get in that way. We saw a lady that my roommate started talking to and she expressed to her that she was trying to get in and told her the name of the agency. The lady took us to the mobile home to see if she could look us up on the data base and my roommate came up with a fake name and the lady couldn't find us. So the lady that's been helping us dragged us to the back of the stage and that's when my roommate said her name was, "Julia Smith", and luckily enough the name of on the list. When it was my turn, I said my name was Amanda Johnson, because that was the first name I saw on the list and she handed me a pass, and next thing I knew we were all in.

   One thing that was missing though was my roommate, as soon as we turned around she was gone. Rather than making our way to find a seat to watch the show, we found backstage and helped the models get dressed. It's almost safe to say that our plan was sabotaged, we didn't necessarily see the show but at least we got to help out and boy did they put us to work. We were steaming dresses,
organizing shoes and dresses, then help the models put on there clothes and sooner than later the show was done. We, our mutual friend and I, tried to see if we could slip away and still see the show but my roommate had called and we just ended up leaving. After, we were all hungry and went out for drinks -- I wasn't even twenty one at the time which was pretty cool. At dinner she told us that she sat next to some fashion designer and she gave her a business card, blah blah. She also told us that the reason she left us was because she got nervous. Although, our experiences at the show were different I still had a wonderful time. Comment below and let me know if you would be crazy enough to go along with this plan. Hopefully you guys enjoyed my story and stay tune for some more, until next time ❤

With Love & Sweetness.

Dear Friends,

Never, ever, ever, EVER, go to Jacobi Medical Hospital in Pelham Parkway. I swear if I could, I would John Q the hell out of that emergency room. Wait, hold on let me rewind a little and tell you what happened.

It was a bright and sunny Monday morning when my boyfriend woke me up with breakfast in bed. I got ready for work,

New York Life Lesson: Money

What's up peeps,

I really hate money sometimes. I personally think that money is the root of all evil, people die over it, people crave it, if you don't have enough then people will rob you of it.
Living in New York, I feel like things are overly expensive for no reason. Before I got my apartment, we, my boyfriend and I, were looking at studios because we were scared that we couldn't afford

New York Life Lesson: New Apartment

Hello Sweet Peas,

I know I've been gone for a while and I know you've noticed how I took somethings out. That's only because I felt like my blog was too complicated before. I had waaayyyy, too much going on so I had to cut back, I noticed by the views that you guys weren't really into it so I needed change. Not only did I needed a change on my blog but I got a new place. I'm so excited to be in my own place where I can walk around naked and go to the fridge and get water any time of night I want. Now I know I said I had a place before but I really was subletting and, long story short, I had to move out because some "funny business" was going on. I still live fairly close to my old place, exactly 13 minutes away which is awesome because I'm still close to my job and school that I start pretty soon. Although, I have to start
