National HIV Testing Day

What's today? Oh Wednesday. I have been lost on my days all week. It is unbelievable that July is next week. Anyhow, today June 27 is National HIV Testing Day.  This day is in observance of our goal to an Aids Free Generation.


One in 5 people living with HIV in the U.S. don't know they have it. You can help change this: spread the word about National HIV Testing Day on June 27.
HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that causes AIDS. Many people with HIV don’t have any symptoms. The only way for people to know if they have HIV is to get tested.

You can find a location for testing by texting your zip code to KNOWIT (566948).



Get tested!!!

Also do not forget about the Summer Hangout tonight!!

Sparkle

Hey! I do not know if you guys have seen the preview for the remake of Sparkle- starring the late Whitney Houston and the gorgeous Jordin Sparks. My boys Derek Luke, Mike Epps, and some other familiar faces. I am planning on making a girls night out of it.

Sparkle premiers August 17. Looks full of emotion but good acting. I'm excited to see Whitney in her last acting performance. I did notice that she looked bad and you could tell she was struggling through some things that the makeup artists could not correct. Nonetheless, she was amazing and I hope for rave reviews. Here is a clip:




Will you be going to see Whitney?

Another day, another dollar! Happy Monday all! Hope you enjoyed Father's Day if you celebrated with any father in your life! I worked but I made sure Hubby had a beautiful day! I have not really celebrated since my grandfather passed over 16 years ago - never had a relationship of any sort with my father but hey there are many more blessings that were given to me to fill that void.

Did you guys know that June 8 was National Best Friends Day?!! I did not! I am super mad that it has passed but I want to do something fun next year! Look it up, I am not making this up!

I also want to shout THANK YOU to all of my followers and new followers. I hope I continue to meet new people here and grow as  a blogger as well an individual. It is fun for me!

Motivational Mondays

Happy Monday! I am happy to be heading home to by lovebugs (hubby and baby Nadia -if you didn't know). It's crazy how much I missed them.

Today, is a different type of motivational Monday. I need to know what some of your routines or techniques to healthy living. I want to take on a full life of healthy habits but I am not that chick! I love dessert! I don't enjoy working out but I will. I love food that makes me happy and full and it's been hard to find that fulfillment with salads, veggies, and fish! However, the past week I've avoided fried foods and refused desserts more times than not! I wanted some buffalo wings really bad but I overcame that desire.

I just want to hear what you do or what you go through. I want to have a long life - free of illnesses and obesity. At the moment, I need to lose 15 pounds. I want to be around and enjoy all facets of life. Is that your outlook for motivation?

Wax on Wax off

Two of my Libra friends (I believe in astrology to an extent) persuaded me that armpit waxing is the bomb and then some. I hate shaving. I hate stubble. I hate pain too so I would rather shave. They informed me that it's not much pain... It's quick and the results are awesome. So I headed on over to the hole in the wall but popular BomBay Salon, where I get my eyebrows threaded (love the results of threading far better than tweeting or waxing).

I entered a room in the back, raised my shirt and my arms, felt the 3 seconds of pain from the initial strip of coarse stubble and there you have it! A smooth waxed pit! I'm hooked! They say return every 3 weeks and soon it will be a month then longer intervals of time because the growth will decrease.

I refuse to post a picture of just a pit because I feel it's inappropriate. After all, it is a pubic area!!! Lol!

Do you get your armpits waxed? Eyebrows threaded? What's your take on these services?
