I'm just now getting over the soreness that had overcome my body after
participating in THE longest journey on foot....aka the L.A. Aids Walk.
It was a no-brainer to support such a powerful movement with the crew:
Chelsea, Keek, Bree, Sulem, and Krystlasia
We walked a good 2 miles to get there--after taking the metro and the bus--,
walked 6 miles amongst more than 30,000 people,
then walked 2 more just to get to the car. lol
And, it was raining.
But all in all, it was for a good cause and I had blast with my girls.
Plus, we rewarded ourselves by indulging a hearty meal from
Roscoe's afterwards. ;]

The discovery of genuine friends is a special rarity that comes with life.
Though my circle is not the biggest,
I'd rather have a few good friends than tons of...
the flakey ones,
the backstabbing ones,
the always-borrowing-your-clothes-and-never-giving-em-back ones,
the boyfriend stealers,
the swagger jackers,
the bad advice givers,
I'm so thankful that God has plucked out all of the weeds in my life and has sewn seeds that are blossoming into amazing friendships with beautiful people.
I love my posse,
I adore them all because they are each very different yet are all extremely talented,
intelligent, and bring something new to my life in their own little ways.
One of these fab friends of mine is Chelsea, better known as Danni Rouge.
Though I had an obsession with redheads far before we met,
she's the dopest one I know. lol
She's the designer behind the accessory line Bullets&Bows,
and is an uber-talented singer and songwriter.
She recently did a vid covering Bruno Mars' song "Grenade,"
which I never heard prior to hearing her sing it and now I love it! lol

Soooo I love Willow Smith. lol
I didn't really understand what all of the hype was about surrounding her,
but after watching her highly-anticipated vid for her single "Whip My Hair,"
I've officially hopped aboard the Willow train lol
Not only is her swagger out of this world
--especially considering the fact that she's 9 years old--
but she's just so friggin' cute! lol
The entire time I was watching the video, I kept getting flashbacks of Jada and her dookeybraids in her Menace to Society days.
I'm so thrilled to see such a positive role model for young black girls.
Finally the days of looking up to rump-shakin' video vixens and risqué female entertainers
Now, black girls have someone that they can actually relate
to that promotes embracing and celebrating your individuality.
I really hope that Willow doesn't become a product of the industry like Miley or Britney lol
So I'll stand in her corner until she shows otherwise.
Aaah! This little girl is just too dope for words!
