Pardon Me...Ms. Cathie Black!

Its not what you know! Its who you know!

Cathie Black received the state waiver, which declared her the New -New York School Chancellor! Now get this, Ms. Black (I love that name), has No Prior experience that would qualify her for this job! November 9, Mayor Bloomberg suggested that the magazine executive replace longtime Chancellor Joel Klein. 

Following her waiver, Ms. Black dropped by  P.S. 109, taking pictures with parents and students. (Smart thinking on her part! She can just look like she knows what she's doing!) Many parents worry and question her ability to manage the public school system. Many are concerned if she will be able to adequately address the needs of the public school system.

I honestly think that someone qualified with educational experience deserves this job! It just clearly shows the benefits of having a friend in power. I wonder if i can get a job that I am not qualified for and have a friend vouch for me?! I wonder...

What do you think of Mayor Bloomberg's power move?

Mazel Tov?!

Who can forget former Bad Boi's Own, Baby Faced SHYNE?! Shyne, whose real name is Jamaal Barrow, had a quick start career, being the brand new face and sound of  Bad Boy Records. As quick as it started, it ended! Rap Artist Shyne got conveniently served a 10 year bid in 1999 for weapons charges at the infamous J-lo and Diddy Night Club shooting. You know the story...

Now he is back with a vengeance or should I say a Chumash (a Jewish Book)?!

               Hip- Hop to Hasidism

Shyne is coming "From the hood to the Holy Land, living in Israel as an Orthodox Jew"-New York Post. The rapper has legally changed his name to Moses Levi and sports a Brand New Look with a Brand New Book! The New Jew says "There's nothing in the Chumash that says I can't drive a Lamborghini". Mazel Tov to you and your Come Back!

What your take on Shyne's New Enlightenment?

You Fancy Huh?!

Yes, Ms.Chyna BlaQ stays fancy!! On a Budget! If I can't make it to my favorite girl Sally for my manicure and pedicure, I do it myself. Take care of your hands and feet people! Its only right.

It is so important to take care of yourself. This Blog right here is for guys and girls! If you have cracked heels or your little piggies are cutting the sheets, you need to read this!

I pride myself on keeping my skin, hair and nails right. Don't get me wrong there are some weeks where I have to check myself and say "Girl, lets get it together".

A manicure and pedicure does wonders for your self esteem! Whether its professional or "Home-made", its all a part of good hygiene. Believe it or not, people tend to look at your hands and feet first! Nails that are dirty and neglected, can be a major turn off. If you are going on a date or a job interview, you need to be properly groomed.

 Let us work our way up the body...shall we? Hairy anything is a No No!! I am going to keep this as clean as possible. No pun intended...Studies show that bacteria builds up and clings to our hairs, this results in unpleasant body odors. A Brazilian wax or a Bic Razor can do wonders. Moving right along.... (giggle)

 Dry or cracked lips
My response is simply, why??? Keep the soup coolers moist and supple with balms, glosses or creams. It is even more important to do so now, the cold air drys out your skin. Protect your lips,cracked, peeling or bleeding lips are not the move. Personally, I keep a lip gloss on my 24/7! I have very full lips and I love to keep them glossy. I would also like to recommend full body lotions with sea butter in them. Lotions with shea butter keep your skin so soft and shiny.

Ms. Chyna BlaQ's Duffel Bag essentials, Body lotion, comb or brush, make-up bag, hand sanitizer, breath mints or gum, metro card, file and some un-mentionable items that aid in personal hygiene. In my Wendy William's Voice.... How You Doing?!

Oh you Fancy Huh? Are you really fancy? Do you keep up with yourself, like you should? This Blog is not a put down in anyway people. Its just a reminder to Love yourself inside and out! When you love yourself first, others will gladly do the same in return!

What do you think? Do you know anyone That is slacking in the personal hygiene department!

Thank you for your Support!!

Snug as a Bug in a Rug?

Its a Bed Bug Epidemic! They are everywhere! I don't know about you, but I am terrified of the thought of these critters being in my home. Department stores, movie theaters and hotels have fallen victim to these tiny parasites!

I have heard so many things about them. So I decided to Google them and get the real deal: Bedbugs or bed bugs are small parasitic insects of the family Cimicidae (most commonly Cimex lectularius).[2] The term usually refers to species that prefer to feed on human blood. All insects in this family live by feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals.[3][4] The name 'bedbug' is derived from the insect's preferred habitat of houses and especially beds or other areas where people sleep. Bedbugs, though not strictly nocturnal, are mainly active at night and are capable of feeding unnoticed on their hosts. (Wikipedia)

Check your mattress seams and even flip your mattresses to check for Bed Bug Infestations. Other clues would be the bite marks that they leave behind. It is advised to wash and dry your clothes completely. And try not to sit on your bed with clothing that you have worn to work, you could possibly have carried back a Bed Bug! These parasites are mobile!

My neighbor suggested that I should purchase a repellent spray. Repellent sprays can prevent and treat infestations. Trust me when I say, I will be dropping by Home Depot to pick up a few cans of "bug be gone"! Think about it, the price of a few cans of repellent is nothing compared to the cost of purchasing new mattresses for the entire home.

Until then, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite!
Are you afraid of this new Bed Bug Scare?
