Would You Wear No Make-Up?


Alicia Keys made a pretty bold statement at the VMAs awhile ago: appearing to a celeb-run event with not a trace of make-up on, and she looked really good! Props go to Alicia for keeping it real, ladies.



Do you realize however that it’s also silly that this is what people are talking about? The expected standard is perfection. But what we yet to realize is that there are many forms of this. There is small and large, black and white, tall and short. Each one of us is different but each one of us is the same. My point is, that the drama behind all of this is because of how we look. Girls, we can be god damn proud if we’re looking sexy af, but if you’re trying to pull-off the no make-up look, wear it proud girl, wear it proud. (Who didn’t love Topenga)



We can sometimes look we’re about to throw down the murda business, but it is hard to handle a society that focuses so much on a beauty standard. But I say embrace it. Do whatever works for you and tell everyone else to suck your tits. Simple. Really though, Alicia Keys is setting an amazing example for girls now-a-days. She gets very open with an interview and made the statement,

“I don’t want to cover up anymore,” she wrote in Lenny. “Not my face, not my mind, not my soul, not my thoughts, not my dreams, not my struggles, not my emotional growth. Nothing.”


Hell ya Alicia! Tell ’em. And there you have it, Alicia has no f***s about the whole scenario. Just her and her cutey Swizz Beatz killin’ it at the VMAs. It was a good show with lots of woman getting the spotlight and that is totally awesome. More woman need to get out there and show the world what you can do. You can be smart and gorgeous at the same time; and being gorgeous doesn’t have to have make-up involved.





Girls Who Roast

Girls Who Roast

No, not like the Bieber roast

But, the let me burn some trees roast

Or, the I’m a ganja babe roast

Or, the stiletto stoner kinda roast

Or, the closet smoker type of roast

Whatever gets your eyes red and your mind right, that’s the type of of roast were talkin about.


None of this is from experience of course. Cough cough. But girls definitely put more style and flare into their cheifing habits.

1.Like, bowl packing is definitely an art form. I don’t know about you, but the perfect layers of leafy flower will make your day.

2. How about what type of glass you use? There’s pipes, blunts, “water” pipes, spliffs, bongs. Take your pick. Now as a girl, what is the stigma with girls who smoke – we can’t take a Bong rip? False. But there are definitely chicks who can’t hang with the weed feels. No worries, no judgment here.

3. My gosh though – what about all the types of Mary Jane? No worries, the 21st century has us on lock because we have an app for that. Leafly is like the cosmopolitan of greenery. You have descriptions, pictures, and nice visualizations of the benefits of the strand. It’s great. Girls would probably most definitely dig that app.

4. How about activities during the smoke sesh? The list is endless. Or, just some Netflix, a good pillow and something to drink. Something to drink is super key. And no I don’t mean alcohol – I meant the quench your thirst type. C’mon ladies.

And if you have never tried it, well, like my boss said, “You know, if someone offered I would most definitely try it ” – Share that ganja my stiletto stoners.



Girls vs. Boys

Girls may be known for being “girly”, but there is a lot behind being a girl. Let’s see who wins, girls or boys?


 1.      Girls wear high heels while boys wear dress shoes. Girls get one point for our pinky toes being sacrificed to make our calves look nice.

2.   Girls have a standard to wear make-up to be able to show our face in public… while boys don’t? Girls get one point for our endless dedication to being beautiful. (And the price of our bathroom counters)

3.     Girls “have the option” to get their nails done…AKA, we need a monthly budget for the salon while boys might need a hair cut. Girls one point because we all know how much moola that salon trip turns into.

4.      Girls need gossip while boys kind of don’t. Okay boys one point.

5.       Girls get free stuff like drinks and food while boys do not. One point for girls.

6.      Girls usually have doors opened for them or encounter chivalrous acts. Two points for boys because yes, it still exists. Thank you.

7.     Girls have to fight to prove their intelligence while boys are expected to be smart. Let’s call this a tie so we can feel bad for the uneducated boys out there. (Too harsh?)

8.     Girls have periods … while boys don’t. Girls get two points for enduring a week of hell on a monthly basis.


All in all… Girls: 7 Boys: 4

These numbers don’t mean anything statistically, but for our argument, girls win.
