Ultimate Blog Party 2012:Welcome to The Fab Girls!

13 Apr

I decided to join 5MinutesForMom.com’s Blog Party because I want to meet other bloggers and share The Fab Girls with them! I learned about it from my Facebook friend Denene Miller, who is an author and blogger herself. (She helped write ‘Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man with Steve Harvey, and you can read her Blog Party post here.)

21 Mar


(Photo from TheYBF.com)

Without the caption from TheYBF, I wouldn’t have even known this was Ciara! She, like Rihanna, has gone totally blond with long windswept tresses. I’ve always thought she was a pretty girl, and I think she looks gorgeous. But this is about what you think. So, vote or share your thoughts in the comments!

FAB Foodie: Chef Danielle Sanders

19 Mar

It’s still Women’s History Month! The Fab Girls didn’t exist when Chef  Danielle Sanders became the first FAB chef to win the Food Network’s show ‘Chopped‘.  Contestants must take ordinary ingredients and turn them into something spectacular. They must have a skill set that includes speed, skill and creativity, and be judged by a panel of four.

She has worked as a personal chef for Diddy, and in some of the country’s finest restaurants.

Here is a link her her ‘About Me’ page: http://about.me/daniellethechef

And a link to a Huffington Post piece about her, including a recipe for her sweet potato and pecan tart-let! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/11/sweet-potato-recipes-from-food-networks-chopped-champion-danielle-saunders_n_1089099.html

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

7 Feb

In addition to February being Heart Health awareness month, it is also Teen Dating Violence awareness month. Yesterday on Twitter, the Love is Not Abuse campaign and Seventeen Magazine held an online conversation about dating abuse.

Teen dating violence can be one incident or a series of events that take place over time. From teendvmonth.org, here are ten of the most common abusive behaviors in relationships:

  • Checking your cell phone or email without permission
  • Constantly putting you down
  • Extreme jealousy or insecurity
  • Explosive temper
  • Isolating you from family or friends
  • Making false accusations
  • Mood swings
  • Physically hurting you in any way
  • Possessiveness
  • Telling you what to do

If you or a friend are in an abusive relationship, it is important to get help right away. Here are some links for more information on this serious matter:
