Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas

Wham - Last Christmas

I'm back again to give you another insight into my beautiful mind...

My first 'Hmmm...' for this month is about former B2K member, Raz B; now if you go back to my last 'Hmmm...', you'll recall I did briefly mention that Raz B had been hit with a restraining order from Marques Houston and I'm now gonna explain what all this mess is about (from my point of view).

Obviously Raz B's upset because he will always be known as the "ugly one" and because his solo career flopped (whatever them songs were about - who even knew he could sing?).
So one day whilst wallowing in self-pity he decided to tarnish B2K's image by claiming Marques Houston & Chris Stokes - his former manager and "cousin" - sexually abused him and his former band mates (J-boog, Lil' Fizz and Omarion). 

Here is just one of the various videos that Raz B has continued to post to

However what is more worrying than what Raz B has been saying is the fact that none of the other B2K members have challenged Raz B accusations, which only makes me wonder what was really going on behind the scenes.

Usher, Usher, Usher; Usher is a man which many words can be ascribed to but as of recent the only word and item Usher needs to get to know is a COMB! His new hairstyle has definitely got us saying, "Oooh My God!" and if  you don't know what I'm on about then here's some pictures to show the degression:

Here He Is Looking Like The Man We Know & Love
Here He Is Looking Very Causal & Cute
And Now Here He Is Looking Dirty & Hungry
Finally it's with great displeasure I post this to my blog; I saw this video when it first came out and I was deeply hurt because Keri Hilson was my girl but we can not be friends if she continues down this line:

So there you have it - Keri Hilson becomes Keri Hoeson; VERY disappointed!

All Cards Laid Out...Or Not?

Now That's What I Call A Full House!
As a week of being bed-bound due to illness draws to an end, I figured I'd relieve my mind of thoughts that have been laying heavy on my head...

Being single is fun - for the purpose of the rant that is about to commence I thought it'd be a good idea to state that. So yeah, single life has it's perks but recently I've been bored of my own company and I feel as though it's time to jump back on the relationship bandwagon.

Now perhaps it's the weather or the fact I've not been feeling like myself because I'm ill but it is something I've considered this week. But then I'm thinking to myself, "really?" because like any other type of relationship it's hard work and very, very, very time consuming and there's always trying to find a potential partner - like where should I look?

I'm not one for hooking up with strangers because London is full of some dodgy characters, no one  who adds you on Facebook wants to be just your "friend" anymore and you always gain the risk of losing a friend if they hook you up with someone and it goes bad.

See I believe before getting "in deep" with someone you need to know what you're in for and therefore I honestly believe in the importance of people being willing to put all their cards out on the table. That way you can make that all important decision as to whether to stick with the potential or take the nearest exit on your right.  

I think my generation are too much into the spontaneity business - I mean for real the world isn't coming to an end, so let's chill for a bit and get to know our potential spouses. Now I'm not gonna lie living for the moment can be fun but the older I get the more I think about the future and the future is happening now.

Therefore I can't be asked to rush into something, only to find a few months down the line that the person standing beside me isn't the person I thought they were because I didn't actually give myself the time to get to know them. 

Don't get me wrong I totally get that new relationships are a chance for a fresh start and you may not wanna let your guards down too quickly until you know you can trust the other person. However, with that said I think it's only fair to let the potential know of any medical history problems (particularly to do with mental health) or any crazy ex-lovers.

To conclude, as a wise man (Ablito) once told me that even if you choose to keep your cards hidden it is important to be clear and make things as black and white as possible.

The Glamourous Life...

Issue 117: December 2010

Magazine cover
Personal Opinion: Love The Jumper, Hate The Trousers

Another wonderful year of GLAMOUR has come to an end but if I say so myself it's been a great year for the magazine and the final issue of 2010 is no exception, as it sums up 2010 perfectly and prepares us for 2011.

My favourite 'Hey it's OK...' from this issue was " Google your own name. Y'know, just to see" - this is an everyday thing for me.

Rebecca Seal's article 'Burn The Rule Book, Ladies!' was a true eye opener. If you look back to one of my earlier posts entitled 'Is Time Running Out?' I spoke about my personal "rule book" and reading this has taught me to chill out and live for the moment which in the long run will make me more optimistic and less rigid.

Finally, I thoroughly enjoyed reading 'When Was The Last Time You Did This?' by Siski Green because it's nice to know that kissing still holds a presence in relationships and if you're not convinced that your kissing skills have what it takes, here are three top tips from GLAMOUR for a show-stopping kiss:
  1. Tilt to the right.
  2. Size doesn't matter.
  3. Scrape your breath clean.
So after reading this issue my advice to you all is get rid of that life plan and pucker up!
