Another day, another escapade that lines the fabric of my love life. *sigh* So, my goal this summer was to build what I am calling The “All-Star Team” Project. Before you judge me (#effyourjudgment by the way), allow me to elaborate. So I know lots of women that disprove of the notion of treating men like they are expendable. “They are humans,” “you could be … Continue reading Just A Thought…The All Star Team Project
Two words can sum up this weekend: Pure madness. We’re talking all hell broke shamelessly loose. Without going into much detail, my friends and I started at a bowling party filled to the brinks with men and women of every age and persuasion followed by an involuntary party at mi casa (my dearest friend volunteered my apartment. I was feeling quite spirited due to the excessive … Continue reading Just A Thought…How Harmless Is “Harmless” Flirting?
So it’s been a few months, and I’ve met quite a few gentlemen of interest whilst accepting my Facebook relationship status is now single. And in a lot of ways they fit my criteria. Smart, physically attractive, witty, well-to-do, you catch my drift. Exchange of numbers, then the game begins. You see, everything up until the digit dance is practice for the real sport: the … Continue reading Just A Thought… The Age May Have Changed, But The Game Remains The Same
After a commendable meeting of the minds, I am officially back on the market. Yes, I am a Single Lady once more. [insert: any verse from the song of the same title here] This is the first time in 7.5 years of breakups to makeups that this separation feels final, and I find myself in uncharted waters: a single adult woman. The landscape is significantly different than … Continue reading Just A Thought…[World Wide] Web Of Love
The number game. The awkward conversation between two members of a relationship regarding the tally marks notched into their belts. The oh-so-scary realization that the person you are infatuated with was with someone (or “ones”) before you. Yes, your man had someone’s sugar poured on them, and your lady’s milkshake definitely brought all the boys to the yard. In high school, being seen with a … Continue reading Just A Thought: Is The “Number” Game Still Worth Playing?
As you know, I am on a quest of hair growth discovery. After wearing my hair chic, sleek and short, I am ready to dive back into long hair, but actually take care of it this time. Au revoir, mon cherie short hair. I am woman enough to admit that the struggle is real. I want to do something different to it, and the monotony of … Continue reading To Trend Or Not To Trend? Box Braids & Yarn Wraps
Perhaps it is because I have an undying love of snarky sarcasm and unapologetic cynicism. Perhaps this sarcasm and cynicism has molded me into a bit optimistic pessimist hiding under the guise of realism that believes if you want to do something, you will do it regardless of any impending change in dates or times. Whatever the case may be, I have always looked down … Continue reading For Auld Lang Syne: Alyssa Peacock’s Resolved Resolutions

; Speeding tickets. Gas vouchers. Bar tabs. You name it, it’s happened. I have driven away countless times with nothing more than verbal warnings, been let off of the hook for bar tabs, gotten into clubs when I was significantly underage, and been given gas gift cards during gasoline shortages. Yes, these things happen. Before I continue, let me simply state that I do not … Continue reading The Pretty Privilege: How Far Do Looks Go?
“A sophistiratchet woman knows when she must be sophisticated and where it is totally appropriate to be ratchet.” Yes beautiful people, you read correctly. In my daily quest for informed Internet entertainment, I came across an article on NewsOne about a new breed of ideal woman known as the “Sophisti-ratchet.” Hmmm, I’m intrigued. What really caught my attention was that the author was thoroughly describing … Continue reading Proud To Be Sophistiratchet!!!
