Wise Individuals Revolutionizing Everything

It's not often that I look at a person's clothing line and immediately want to purchase an item. I guess you can say that I'm one of those rare women that don't love to shop for clothing. Shoes? Now that's another story. Anyway, I came across this commercial that reminded me of myself so I just had to share.

I know that I'm one of many people that hate waking up early in the morning. My dream job is one that enables me to wake up late and work during the evening because I have no issue staying up late. Anyway, I've noticed that when I have a really cute outfit to wear or I wanna look pretty and put make-up on, it's much easier for me to get up in the morning. It's like I have much more energy when it's time to look cute. It's crazy how that works.

Below you'll be able to peep the commercial that I'm so eager to share. It's for W.I.R.E., a clothing line that does more than provide cute clothing. Many of the items that W.I.R.E. offers are both inspirational and stylish. I could see guys that I know wearing these shirts and I especially love the message that the company send to us consumers. Without further ado, here is the darn commercial!

Wasn't that an awesome commercial? In my opinion, a handsome guy with muscles and a pretty smile is the perfect way to market any product! LoL.. Seriously though, go to to find out more about W.I.R.E. and click here to shop for their clothing.

The Four Types of Friends...

I've noticed that most of my blog posts are a bit serious in nature so now is the time that I write about something a little more fun. This past weekend I was home alone most of the time and when Sunday was coming to an end I thought to myself, "I need more friends." It's no surprise that it's much more difficult for females to become and remain friends than it is for males. It's a sad but obvious fact. The friends that I do have, I do not see that often. This could be because I'm not the most social of people and I'm content laying in my bed on a Friday night while doing nothing. In fact, napping is my favorite pastime. When there is an event that I'd like to attend, it's fairly simple for me to decide which friend I'd like to bring along because I've managed to categorize my small group of friends. Below you'll see my list of the four types of friends that one may have.

1. The Best Friend - A best friend is typically a person that you've known for many years. This person knows all about you and vice versa. The two of you have fun doing numerous things together. You would do anything for this person and they are like family. A person that has more than three "best friends" likely overuses the term or is extremely friendly.

2. The Multi-Purpose Friend - This friend is the friend that can go anywhere and likes to do anything with you. Whether at a restaurant or a concert, you and this friend are bound to have a good time. Multi-purpose friends are like the perfect pair of black pumps. They can be worn to work or the club. I'm not saying that you can wear your friends, but I'm sure you get my drift. These types of friends are fun to be around and the difference between them and a best friend is likely the amount of time that you've known them.

3. The Acquaintance - An acquaintance is the most common of all friend types. This person is nice and fun to be around, but you do not see them that often. You've either become acquainted through a mutual friend, school, or some other random activity. Acquaintances are the most likely to annoy you seeing as though they do not know you very well. It is best to hang out with acquaintances sporadically until the two of you know each other better. In some instances an acquaintance can become a multi-purpose friend.

4. The Socialite - Lastly, the socialite/ party-goer is the friend that is only useful at clubs or other high-energy social events. This person enjoys partying more than most people and unfortunately they're not good for much else. This type of friend does not typically engage themself in intellectual conversations and their knowledge doesn't extend beyond the club or the opposite sex. The advantage to this type of friend is that they ALWAYS know what fun events are happening.

Please remember that these are just my thoughts. There may be more types or perhaps fewer. Do you agree with what you see above? Is there something that my list is missing?

Why so many Black women are single...

I,like many others, am sick of hearing people discuss why they think the majority of Black women are single. The video above is of rapper, Nelly chiming in on why he thinks many women are single. He makes a great point when he states that some women pass on good guys because they don't look like "the perfect guy." I'm guilty of this. For example, I have sworn off short guys. Imagine that! I'm only 5'3 and I have the nerve to be picky about height. A friend and I were discussing this recently and she has a long list of deal breakers. She has been single for a while might I add. On the other hand, I know plenty of women who are no where close to getting married, but engage in aimless activities with subpar men for the sake of not being alone. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather be single.

Anyway, the purpose of this post is to ask you a question. Do you think many women are too picky? Should we have to settle for the men that are available as opposed to waiting for "Mr.Right" when we're not even sure he exists? I'm totally stumped when it comes to this topic so what are your thoughts?
