Would you drink BioCoke or OrganiCoke?

A drink without phoshoric acid, aromas, colouring, etc.
"Furthermore, we want our children to drink organic soft drinks.
Give us the chance!!!"


Biocoke does not exist yet (but you can find some Bio Cola in the shops). At the moment, it is only an imaginary drink but they would like to make it a reality. They know it might be more expensive than regular Coke, but is it worth it? "Our health is worth the money!"

Thrift Store surfin' is one of my favorite things to do. I hated it as a kid, I wanted all new stuff and not some moth ball smelling rubbish somebody threw away. The older I get I understand that whole "one man's trash is another man's treasure" thing... Its also another way to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle...MESSAGE!!!!!!!!! LOL! They don't call me the Retro Recessionista for nothing! *wink*

Usually, I leave the kids with Mr. and go by myself. I've taken my kids along and usually I'm too busy chasing them around to really sort through the goods. Plus, kids don't understand that they can't touch all over thrift store items...It's not the cleanest place for kids, considering most if not everything in there needs to be washed and sanitized...When I go with my bestie who is an avid online shopper... she doesn't have the patience. Going with the pals is fun..shout out to Wyn-dogg! She gets more out of finding things for me than herself! LOL! My sister has a short tolerance and hubby can only take it so long before he is totally over it. Saturday mornings is when I do my drive-bys. I am drooling just thinking about all of the glorious garage sales and groovy finds tucked away in thrift stores...My love affair with any and all things vintage has grown so intense lately! OMG...

Like I've said before, vintage items have history...they tell a story. Like my "GUMBY" stuffed little guy pictured above. It was love at first sight, I had to have it! I loved watching Gumby at 7:30 every morning before school. I remember missing my bus and getting in trouble trying to watch that daggone show! Just thinking about it cracks me up! While thrift store shopping I found another ZUMBA location too! HOLLA! I love getting my Zumba on..thats a whole 'notha blog post! LOL! *stay tuned* WINK! I'm gonna do a thrift store haul soon....

Vonetta McGee Interviewed by Don Cornelius on Soul Train

The first time I seen you was with your co star Max Julien, in 'Thomasine & Bushrod' (1974). Then later in Blacula. You are a rare talent and one of the faces of the Blaxplotation era. You will be missed.

Open Letter to Essence from The Natural Haven

The Dream risks EVERYTHING for a fling! The Dream and Christinia Milian are splitsville!!

Christina Milian and husband The-Dream have called it quits, Us Weekly reports.

"Terius 'The-Dream' Nash is saddened to announce that his marriage to Christina Milian was unsuccessful. The couple reached this decision in late 2009, but decided to keep the news private in efforts to protect their baby daughter Violet. They ask for consideration and respect for their family moving forward," his rep told Us.

The split comes amidst reports of The-Dream cheating with his assistant of a year, Melissa Santiago. Photos have surfaced of Melissa straddling The-Dream, sans wedding band, in the Caribbean. Another pic.

Christina and The-Dream, a singer-producer, wed in Vegas in September 2009 and had another wedding in December, reportedly around the same time they decided to split. Christina gave birth to their daughter, Violet, in March. He has three children from a previous marriage to singer Nivea.

PRODUCT REVIEW:: Tree Hut Shea Body Butter

On a recent trip to Wally World (Wal-Mart) I zoomed in on this body butter. It said shea butter so I was tempted to further inspect this unfamiliar product. As usual, I unscrewed the lid to catch a wiff...I was blown away at how GOOD it smelled. That day I fell in love with Tree Hot Shea Body Butter. I purchased the matching shower gel and sea scrub. Very affordable!

**NOTE::: It contains No Parabens or DMDM!
