Sonjdra Deluxe is a Freelance Makeup Artist in VANCOUVER, BC. CANADA. The girl is amazing! I love her use of earth tones to give a #naturaldramatic as she likes to call it Her work is flawless and I'd love to hire her. But since I can't at this moment in time she decided to make makeup tutorials on Youtube just for me.
LOL I'm just kidding I've never even met her, but I couldn't resist.
But seriously, she's definitely a pro at what she does. When Anastasia Beverly Hills features you, you know you're doing it right.
Check out a few of her looks and tutorials below

Raychillster is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! I came across her Tumblr when I was searching for pictures of black women with blue hair, hoping to find what products they used. As you know I opted for a darker blue, but I'll be trying out her products when I touch up my hair.
Just by observing her posts on Instagram and Tumblr I've learned that she is an artist, photographer and overall strong young woman. She inspires many through her posts, she's a very wise and positive lady. Everyone could use a dose of her energy.
Check her out.

So many people thought Nicki Minaj was bald, well they can have a seat in the corner because she just shut them DOWN. lol
She removed her blonde wig to show off her natural crown and captioned the photos "No Perm No extensions"
I looked closely at one with her ponytail extended and checked the ends because I knew someone would say it's fake. Looks legit to me!

I've found cute and terrifying pictures of the Venezuelan Poodle moth, I'm only posting the ones I could stand to look at, some freaked me out. Feel free to google it to find more.
"The Venezuelan Poodle Moth is a possible new species of moth discovered in 2009 by Dr. Arthur Anker of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, in the Gran Sabana region of Venezuela. It bears similarities to the Diaphora mendica, the Muslin Moth, but most likely belongs to the lepidopteran genusArtace." -source
But I've also read that scientists have confirmed it's real. eh, either way, very interesting to look at.

I sure didn't! I'm not surprised I didn't learn about this in school, besides slavery and the civil rights movement there wasn't much discussion about black history.
Different cultures, different styles of dress, mannerisms, foods,etc. That should be completely understandable, unfortunately many white people back in the 1870s to the 1930s couldn't comprehend this. They felt the need to kidnap and imprison innocent people all around the world, I found out there was a Human Zoo here in Cincinnati! There are definitely a lot of racist people here so it's not much of a stretch.
There's nothing wrong with being interested in people that are different from you, but to degrade them because you perceive them as "primitive" is completely inappropriate. It's disgusting! We're not animals you degenerate fucks.

Some people are dead serious about Beyonce and I can't stop laughing at the pictures The Beyble posts. They crack me up, the twitter account definitely makes people laugh and others praise her name, but not everyone. I can definitely understand why they're upset, I've scrolled through the tweets and the guy behind the account receives a lot of hate. I can't say how much but I have seen some some pretty nasty tweets.
But for the most part, it's all love. This shouldn't be a big surprise, I mean people call her Beysus.
The Beyble told me privately that "some people take it too literal." So I guess you shouldn't take the pictures below literally, at least not from him.
Beyciple a twist on Disciple, for Beyonce. Here are some of the tweets.
Yes they are praying to Beyonce's poster.
Here are the reactions.

I've been slacking lately on my water consumption and I have no idea why. As a result of this I find myself craving more and more foods. I don't give in to the cravings but I have them. I'm sure you've heard that we tend to mistake thirst for hunger and that's the case for me. So more water starting today!
I'm currently typing this at 2:43am but Today is Today and I'm guzzling filtered water in between sentences.
So here's the plan, it's pretty freakin easy honestly.

I've been Celibate for 6 months now. I didn't plan this, didn't really think about it. I made no conscious decision to avoid sexual intercourse with anyone and when I realized that it's been so long, I laughed. It's crazy to me that I haven't desired to be intimate with anyone and it's no one's fault! No one traumatized me, I just haven't allowed anyone to turn me on. I don't want to be bothered it's as simple as that really. I can still be aroused but it doesn't make me crave intercourse, I can handle that all by myself ;)
- 1.abstaining from marriage and sexual relations, typically for religious reasons.
plural noun: sexual relations
1. sexual behavior between individuals, esp. sexual intercourse.
I wasn't sure if I should call myself celibate since I masturbate so I did some googling, turns out, celibate is the right word.
"Celibacy & Masterbation are two seperate entities. To be celibate simply means to abstain from sexual intercourse - as to have actual intercourse you would need a partner. Masterbation is erotic stimulation of one's own genital organs achieved by manual or other bodily contact exclusive of sexual intercourse, by instrumental manipulation, occasionally by sexual fantasies, or by various combinations of these agencies.
So technically, you can masterbate and remain celibate it is not sexual intercourse - it is instead self gratification." -source
I feel very comfortable discussing my sex life or lack thereof, I like talking about sex. It's a natural part of life and will never get boring, the day sex becomes boring (which I don't believe will ever happen) is the day the world ends. I haven't looked into religious reasons why someone would choose to be celibate so I don't fully understand. But that's not interesting to me so I guess I never will.
What I find interesting are the many non-religious reasons why people choose to abstain, for instance to revirginize themselves.
revirginization: the process of a sexually active person attempting to regain virgin status by abstaining from sexual relations, esp. during the time just before marriage;
That's pretty silly to me but I won't analyze it, I think it's pretty obvious what that's all about.
The iVibe Rabbit Mini Silicone is my current
"lover" lol YES THE MINI! I didn't realize until I got home and it doesn't even matter because I rarely use the shaft anyway. The vibrating rabbit is all I need :)
It was $100 and worth every penny, so many settings, and functions. Have you ever had to stifle your screams so as to not disturb your neighbor?
I can have my music up loud and they don't hear it but when I use this I have to hold back because I get LOUD. lol This wonderful sex toy brings me joy and orgasms, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I. USE IT. Even if the batteries are low, it doesn't matter that just means I'll be able to use it on high settings without freaking out. This thing is powerful.
Try putting brand new batteries in The Rabbit and turning it to the highest vibration, THEN try holding it on your clitoris for 5 seconds. Bet ya can't do it! So yea, it's not like I NEED a partner lol no human can do what this does so you're going to have to do more than sling dick or lick.
I don't plan on remaining celibate for years to come, hell tomorrow might be the day I break my sexual fast lol (this is a lie I'm just trying to make a point) but it is nice to avoid intimacy, I rather enjoy the lack of cuddling in my life. No kissing, I'm not a big fan of that anyway. No one taking up space in my bed, I LIKE MY BED! I LIKE HAVING THE WHOLE DAMN THING TO MYSELF! Sleeping alone is fine with me lol
I know the next person I invite into my life will have to be pretty freakin special, I really have to be into you and you have to bring A LOT to the table. I honestly wouldn't be interested if you didn't, if all you have to offer is a penis or a tongue, take yo ass to the club and find you something easy. Because easy I. am. not. Guys say the stupidest shit, "You ain't been fucking with the right guys, they don't know how to hold you, kiss, you, lick you,etc." "All you need is some good dick and I got that right here." And so on.
Apparently some people's brains are incapable of comprehending the lack of desire one might have to fuck. I DON'T WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH ANYONE AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND RESPECT THAT SIR!
Because like I said before, if all you have to offer is a penis or a tongue, take yo ass to the club and find you something easy. Because easy I. am. not. I don't want to have conversation, I don't want to be "friends" (Which is code for fuck buddies these days) I don't want to chill and smoke a blunt with you, I don't want to bust it open for a "real nigga", I don't want to be romanced, wined and dined, caressed, cuddled, kissed, swooned, loved. Yes, loved. I don't want any form of romantic love, I don't want a picket fence I don't want "side dick", there's nothing you can offer at this moment (this moment could last for a long time) except business opportunities, partnerships, money, That I Earn. Influence, Connections, Charismatic conversation, throw in some humor, let's relax, then get back to work.
I want to build an empire, I want to be successful, VERY successful. I want to remain focused on my goals, I don't want nor do I need a partner at this moment. They are distractions for me. This is not why I have not allowed anyone in my bedroom, I just felt I should share how I feel about relationships. As stated before, I don't want to be bothered, there's nothing I feel anyone has to offer me that would result in a physical relationship.
People will readily accept a man saying, "I don't want a girlfriend/wife/love" People will totally get it and call him a bachelor, a business man, a go getter. He may not be celibate but I'm focused on the Love aspect now. It's socially acceptable for a man to never give his heart to a woman and "play the field" or whatever but if a woman doesn't want love, then there's something wrong with her. LOL
WHY? Why can't a woman be content with success and spirituality? Why is society so focused on a woman's "need" to marry and procreate? But not a man's?
My question actually reminds me of the excerpt from "We should all be feminists: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie" that Beyonce used in her song Flawless
We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don't teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes
I think that's enough for now. I feel good sharing this lol
I made this video last year (still during my unknown celibacy)

Apparently you can only wear bold shades of red lip stain/stick if you have small lips and light skin. If you have dark skin you MUST only wear subtle reds and other colors so as not to bring attention to the fact that you have full lips. Willie lynch syndrome strikes again.
Who are you to tell someone what they can wear? Where are these rules for colors and skin tone, I'd love to find them so I can trash them one by one. This post stems from my annoyance with the many black women that felt the need to bring out their inner makeup artist and tell the young lady, Rocquelle Porch, who's on the bottom right that red was not her color. Photo from Essence
Rocquelle saw the comments and posted one of her own.

This is the funniest SNL sketch I have seen in a LONG time, they usually just fall flat for me but the buzz around this one was worth it.
Jay Pharoah, Kenan Thompson, and Sasheer Zamata present "28 Reasons To Hug A Black Guy Today" This was beautiful, hilarious reactions and valid points. He said,"did a lot of research but slavery kept coming up" AND THAT SAYS IT ALL!!
It all began with slavery. There's no playing devil's advocate for torturing, abusing, raping, demeaning, degrading… basically treating us like and calling us animals. We were considered less than animals actually. There's no way to justify it.
Some ask why there’s a Black History Month, to that I say, because most people wouldn’t know of the impact, inventions, accomplishments and more of black people. That information isn’t detailed in our history books in school, we do not receive the recognition that other races do, simple as that.
Most people wouldn’t know the air conditioner was invented by a black man, the hair brush, door knob, stethoscope, tv remote control, thermostat control,etc.

(Try the player down below if this one doesn't work)
Bad Religion from Frank Ocean's debut studio album, Channel Orange, is one of my favorite songs. So like many, I went online to read reactions to the song, see different interpretations of the lyrics and just get a general idea of how everyone else took it. HOPING that the majority would love it as much as I did. But alas, this is the internet and I was a fool to think anything is universal besides the need to breathe and consume food.
The song is pretty self explanatory… IF ONLY PEOPLE WOULD LISTEN to the lyrics and actually comprehend their meaning they wouldn't take the title nor the song as a whole as a diss to religion. He's basically comparing unrequited love to a cult.

"Hi. I wrote to you before and said I was on an 860 cal/day diet and losing about 10 lbs/month. Well, now I’m losing like 7 lbs a month. I know that as I lose weight, my metabolism slows, but I would really like to lose at that faster rate. I was wondering if you have a workout plan that doesn’t slow weight loss that you can recommend. I was complaining to you about having no energy, so I basically have not been working out to lose weight.
I did try zumba for some weeks, and became frustrated because I started losing like 1 lb a week instead of the usual 2.5 (I know it was probably due to muscle gain, but it freaked me out that my weight loss had slowed due to exercise). So basically, any advice you can give on how to add exercise to my weight loss journey without slowing down said weight loss would be helpful."
Good to hear you're still getting results but I do understand where you're coming from, you want to see more weight just fall off. What I recommend to lose weight at a faster rate is increase your cardio. I burned a lot of calories by jogging in the morning 5-6 days a week. I ate a LIGHT breakfast of Yoplait non-fat yogurt, whole wheat toast, banana and green tea (I told you it was light) then jogged for 45 mins to an hour. When I had more time I'd just go on a nice walk in the evening, I found that it was easier on my knees and shins if I walked more so I switched out jogging for walking. I didn't lift any weights, just cardio.
Since I was eating so few calories like you are, walking was better for me, I was rarely tired and my legs looked fabulous. The more walking I did on an incline the more calories I burned, so I'd tackle hills pretty often, if there aren't any hills where you live then hit the treadmill and make sure you turn up the incline.
Remember the more active you are, the more calories you should consume, but don't worry you burn them off while you workout. I didn't gain muscle walking or at least not enough to equal a pound.
Make sure you're eating enough carbohydrates since carbs provide you with energy, like whole wheat bread for instance.
For MORE energy, I drank lots of green tea, it worked wonders. Other options are;
- Herbal sources of caffeine and related compounds like guarana, yerba mate, and kola nut
- Green tea (also a source of caffeine)
- Capsaicin (red pepper)
- Asian Ginseng
- Bitter Orange (specifically, the ingredient synephrine) -Source
I'd recommend natural remedies over energy drinks any day, they'll keep you going, trust me. Here are some more exercises you can try.
If you're interested in strength training, which helps as well, try this out.
