Hilary Duff Joins Tinder- Wants to Date Normies

Former Disney child star and star of the new hit show Younger on TV Land Hilary Duff has joined the online dating world. Her meat market of choice is the popular dating app Tinder..which allows users to swipe left if he’s a dud or swipe right if he’s just your type.

What started out as a joke with Hilary and her friends, wind up turning into a real date with a guy named Tom, an actor and former reality show editor.  Rumors of her being on the dating app were met with skepticism until she confirmed with several media outlets, including Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS FM radio morning radio show that it is in fact her on Tinder. She spilled the beans about her first Tinder date with the fellow Thespian… It was really a group outing with their friends. (Good call, Hilary). The group went bowling. Will Tom get a second date? Here’s a hint: “To be honest, I don’t really want an actor either … I think he has a few jobs.”.. said Duff.. Sorry Tom. Hilary has a few more Tinder dates lined up. Get it girl.

If Hilary finds love on Tinder this would definitely make for a good ABC Family movie. Good luck, Hilary. Celebrity or not, we all need love. Check out an Us Weekly article featuring other celebrities who’ve also tried online dating.

I Rode The NYC Subway With Some NBA Ballers Today

In anticipation of the NBA’s 2015 All Star Weekend, which is taking place in 2 weeks in New York, the NBA is going all out with its promotion. En route home in a very slushy and slippery commute, I hopped on the number 5 train in Downtown, Brooklyn, only to be greeted with images of Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant; Kobe Bryant of the Lakers and NYC’s own Carmelo Anthony- to name a few. The subway car which was covered from top to bottom( seats included), with All Star Weekend promotions, were free of any graffiti or any other type of defacement. Good job, New York!!!


Look AT Me, Dammit!

Last week I returned back to “my roots”. I temporarily hung up my wigs and hair pieces in favor of my natural tresses. Inside I feel the same. I know I am beautiful with or without my wigs but one thing for certain, not everyone was impressed by my natural hair. Every morning I commute via mass transit to my copywriting gig located in Northern New Jersey. I catch the NJ transit at Port Authority in Times Square. Day in and day out, I see the same familiar faces standing in a single filed line waiting for our chariot to arrive. I don’t know their names but I know their stops. I presume, in their minds, I too have become a constant in their daily commute. As a keen observer and a people watcher , as I always been, I’ve noticed that when I wear my wigs I get looks from a lot of the men- they can’t stop staring. Some sneak glances while others make it plain ol obvious that they like what they see.

Upon reintroducing my natural hair, I barely received my usual glances from my male traveling cohorts. One man in particularly, a regular gawker, has avoided looking at me at all cost. I even spotted him during my recent evening commute and still no glances. I felt like going up to him in a dramatic fashion (like something seen out of a movie) and turning his head violently and saying “Look at me dammit. I’m still the same person your eyes fell in love with. ”

I didn’t get a sex change but to my former admirers, I might as well have. In their eyes, I lost my femininity or the thing that made me look desirable. I’m actually not a bit bothered because I’m comfortable in my own skin and in my looks. And it’s not that I missed their glances, but as a writer my job is to be observant and to take in my environment. I just so happen to note that my natural tresses don’t garner the usual attention that my wigs do.

I’ve heard similar hair stories from other women about how negatively their natural hair have been received by their significant others and admirers. However, I know of a lot of women who have professed to also experiencing men who are just fascinated and enamored by their natural hair and the confidence that goes along with it. Personally, I’ve been natural for two years- many wigs, weaves, extension have come and went but underneath it all I remain natural. Is it naive for me to hope that one day what’s under my scalp will be more attractive to men than what’s on top of it? I keep echoing to myself words by Indie Arie,” I am not my hair” but I’m starting to think that to some I am.

Blacks Cats Do It Better: My Halloween Look!

Well, usually I don’t do anything on Halloween night but this year I decided to live a little. I went to a Halloween party in the city. Some of the costumes I saw en route to the city were flat out hilarious. I laughed so hard that real tears formed in my eyes- I nearly ran my mascara. As for me and my costume, I didn’t come in a full cat outfit but honey all I gave was a sexy kitten face- that was enough for me.

Would you let this sexy kitten cross your path even if it meant several years of bad luck?

Fall, You’re Just My Type!!


I don’t think I’ve ever said aloud before, but fall is absolutely one of my favorite seasons. The colorful leaves make for a perfect backdrop for clothing in hues of apple green and pumpkin orange. Then there’s the layering..  what other time of the year does wearing layers and knee length boots, make for a seductive outfit? Personally, I haven’t shopped this season because my closet is fully equipped for fall. What I have been experimenting with is my hairstyles. Honestly when I wake up in the morning and get ready for work, I have no idea what hairstyle I’m going to rock.  It all depends on my mood, the weather and the length of time I have to get ready.

Lately, I have forgo my natural hairstyles for hair pieces and wigs. Don’t be too quick to call me a traitor because the next time you see, I might be rocking a bomb a** twist out.. For now I’m having fun and enjoying the love I’m receiving from friends and coworkers alike for my ever changing hairstyles. “Can I keep topping all my previous hairstyles” is what I keep asking myself. However, the more I worry about how people will receive my hairstyles or my entire style for that matter, is the more styling will become a chore instead of being fun and self expressive. Your individual style is something that’s personal and shouldn’t be dictated by the people around you… I’m learning this more and more.

A Labor Day Weekend of Love: Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union Tie the Knot!

When it comes to fashion, Dwayne Wade makes his own rules. Who but the Miami Heat’s off-the court fashionister can get away (well barely, according social media cyber teasing) with wearing skinny, high waters?

This past Saturday, D.Wade decided to play by one fashion pseudo golden rule: Don’t wear white after Labor Day; instead, wear it two days before the Labor Day cut off. That’s right, after four yours of courting, D. Wade, 32, and Being Mary Jane star, Gabrielle Union,41, wed in Miami. The bride wore a white, halter-top gown by Dennis Basson, while the the groom wore a customized tux by Dsquared 2.
