My birthday is exactly two weeks before Christmas, I know, you'd think I would get double presents but NOPE! All my loved ones are cheap so I … Continue reading Here Comes Christmas!
I feel like there needs to be a song dedicated to the awesomeness of denim and whoever invented it - probably a black mother who was sick of doing the laundry (I seriously think so!) The song needs to be an R&B style song with so many runs, featuring Keith Sweat (whoooo can love you … Continue reading On Denim
