When Being Miss Independent Goes Wrong

Standing on the wooden platform with my helmet adjusted just right on my afro, sunglasses on my face as sweat persisted to slide them off, and oversized brown gloves on my hands. I wasn’t sure if the sweat all over my body was because of the July heat or nervousness as I wiped my face, and inhaled deep breathes several times. 

I had gotten myself into something that only 13 lines through the forest by myself could get me out of.

Year 27 Has Begun

It’s safe to say that I am really like foreal foreal *swallows huge gulp* 27 years old now. Its been a week and everything is settling as I inch closer to dare I say it… 30.

All Of The Lights

Every place you vacation has something special about it. When it comes to Las Vegas no matter how many times I visit or how old I get I’m still enamored by all the lights. It makes me feel like anything can happen and is happening at every moment. It brings the same excitement I got as […]

Let’s Ride Out: MotorTrend AutoShow ’12

Recently, I took a trip to Las Vegas, NV because I needed to get away from Los Angeles. I needed a vacation and a change of scenery. Most of all I need my own personal space to walk around naked and use the bathroom whenever and however long I needed because this is not a […]

Let’s Ride Out: BMW 328i

I’ve always wondered, “Why do people in luxury cars drive so slow?” I now know why! Who needs to rush when you’re so damn comfortable? For my birthday this year circumstances caused me to rent a car for the day and it just turned out to be a black on black BMW 328i. What were […]
