Pants on the Ground: The Sag Swag

The "Sag Swag" is a baffling trend that many people don't seem to understand at all, including myself. It is hard not to notice the strange "penguin like" walk with boxers and briefs in clear view for everyone to see. This unfashionably tasteless fad is inexplicable and has many people just shaking their heads in disgust.

When people think of  sagging pants they  usually associate the style with teens of color or rap artists, but in all actuality people of all walks are incorporating the Sag into their Swag. Why do people sag their pants?? There are many rumors and speculations to why people sag their pants.  Some people say the style originated from prison and others connect it with gang affiliation. Others just do it because they honestly think its a stylish way to rock their denim. At the end of the day, whether you agree with it or not, its a style that seems like it will not be changing anytime soon.


Is it cool to Sag your pants?
Does the "Sag Swag" bother you at all??

New Smoking Ban In Effect: NO IFs, ANDs,OR BUTTs About it!!

New York City's Public Smoking Law goes into effect Today!! It was in early February where our Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed a bill into law prohibiting public smoking in parks, beaches, board walks and pedestrian plazas. Violators who get caught puffing in public could be fined $50!

This Newly passed Law is expected to improve the quality of life for New Yorkers; protecting them against the dangerous effects of secondhand smoke. The city will be flushed with "no smoking" signs to keep public areas smoke free. This "no smoking" campaign will frustrate a few and cause many people to quit the nicotine puffing habit.

One time for your Mind: For years the Tobacco Industry has made Billions of Dollars, advertising their products to adults and youth; gaining new addicts daily. Many people have become addicted to Nicotine and struggle with their habit. Is it fair to suddenly band what they tried so hard to shove down our throats??!! I am not a smoker nor have ever been one. I just think that this whole situation is a little hypocritical. What do you think people?? Is the City infringing on our rights as individuals? Or are you fine with the new "no smoking" ban??

Are you drinking enough water???

It is very important for us to hydrate our body by drinking plenty of fluids. One of the most important beverages we can ever drink is water. Believe it or not, our bodies are made up of 70- 80% water. From our circulatory system to our digestive system, water aids in helping our body run effectively. The benefits of water consumption are countless.Water helps to detoxify our bodies by flushing out potentially harmful chemicals and impurities. It also aids in regulating our temperature and transporting nutrients to our cells. Physicians recommend that we drink one ounce of water for every two pounds of our body weight each day!

One time for you Mind: Did you know that our brains are composed of 90% water?! So if you are thinking you don't need water... think again!!

How much water do you drink each day?

I'm Addicted to "Love & Hip Hop"

I, Ms.Chyna BlaQ am addicted to the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop! Extreme characters with lots of drama and I Love it! *Please let there be a season two!*

My Favorite Personalities??!!

Jim Jones and Chrissy are an absolutely adorable couple! Jim Jones is just Jim Jones... Straight Hood forever! Chrissy is an out spoken strong woman who supports her man and his career. The two struggle with relationship and career challenges.-Chrissy doesn't let Jim make her. I love, love, love the fact that she proposed to Jim on the show. The custom designed "dancing diamond" engagement ring was simply hot!! 

Olivia is cute and sweet; she struggles to push her faded singing career. Olivia adds flavor to the show as she spies and snitches on people. Emily, Fab's Baby Mama is absolutely gorgeous, but is like a  piece of dry toast. I think she really needs to grow a back bone and stop whining about her pseudo family with Fabolous. 

Somaya, hate her or love her, adds spice to the show. She starts the drama and ruffles plenty of feathers...this chick enjoys the spot light and plans to benefit from all camera time. *smart girl* 

We have reached the season finale of the show. I am more than sure these guys will be asked back for season 2 of Love & Hip Hop!! Will Jim say "yes"? Will Olivia and Somaya find true talent? Will Fab ever pick up Emily's calls on camera? Let's tune in and see.

One Time for your Mind: I know personally that dating an artist can present its challenges... The grind involves broke days (no money), endless tours (lonely nights) and lots of groupies. Can you deal with the rumors and your hunny being surrounded constantly by "fans"?? Could you trust your mate with the fame? Or will you constantly be worried like Emily??

Osama Bin Laden is Dead!

The Master Mind behind the September 11th Attacks has been captured and killed. President Barack Obama proudly announced the success of an early morning U.S. Military operation that captured and killed the Al Qaeda leader.

“The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat Al Qaeda,” Obama said. “Yet his death does not mark the end of our effort. There’s no doubt that Al Qaeda will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must –- and we will — remain vigilant at home and abroad.” -President Barack Obama

 The search for Osama Bin Laden had went on for nearly a decade after the September 11th attack. Americans gathered after midnight at the World Trade Site to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden and to remember their love ones. The News of  Bin Laden's death circulated for hours on Twitter prior to the President's announcement. It's reported to be one of the most "tweeted" reports to circulate.

One Time for your Mind: I honestly don't know how to feel about the news of Bin Laden's assassination. I do know that the September 11th attack devastated Americans abroad, in turn, unifying our nation through pain. How do you feel about the News of Osama Bin Laden's assassination?? Have you gained closure??
