“And the Oscar Goes to Zendaya” and More on the Loc Controversy

BY: JEANIE SALLAH

 Today is Saturday, February 28, 2015, 6 whole post Oscar Ceremony days later and I’m still incensed, like I need the last word on this Fashion Police madness. With the advent of the internet no good or bad deed can go unchronicled and slip by us, so in this case that’s a good thing. I’m talking about Zendaya’s beautiful locked hair (and lets not forget her absolutely gorgeous dress) being immortalized for years to come on the Red Carpet…… Read More Here https://curlielocs.com/media/

Cooking For The Soul

 Brandied Apple Raisin Bread Pudding

If you’re looking for a low calorie dessert option be advised “This is Not It”! This rich luscious combination of brandy, apples, and raisins combined in a rich custard is absolutely sinful; but oh so tasty. Serve it warm with a dollop a whip cream, delightful rum or caramel sauce, or a cool scoop of vanilla ice cream. We use non-fat frozen vanilla yogurt at my home, it’s just as yummy. Any way you serve it I guarantee your guests will be coming back for more!

“Body Slimage, (I meant) Image” or “Is Our Looking Glass Playing Tricks On Our Head?”

YOGA FROM A NATURAL:  By Jeanie Sallah

The other day some guy I thought was really fine said I was thick, what does that mean? Is “thick” good or bad? Couple that with my constant questioning of my butt being too big, or is my butt too small? Secretly wishing I looked more like that thin girl in my class. Wondering whether I do need liposuction on my stomach; I’ve got a gut you know. It’s a constant merry-go-round of doubtful questions taking up residence in my head. Am I too dark (yeah we still have that olden-day insecurity)? Is my forehead a bit too large, is my hair is too thin, too thick, do you think I need a nose, boob; you fill in the _________ job? I know you get the picture. What do you see when you look in the mirror and do you like her/him?

“Healthy Year”

Happy New “Healthy” Year.  So now that we have the formalities out the way let’s make an action plan.  Not a resolution to be healthier, because unfortunately New Year’s Resolutions tend to be sadly broken. Losing weight ranks #1 and getting fit and healthy ranks #5 as two of the ten most failed resolutions (University of Scranton, Journal of Clinical Psychology /January 2014). There’s even a name for the downfall of our resolutions, it’s called Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day. Really I’m serious, the day is on January 17 (every year) and it’s considered the most common day to give up on your resolutions (didn’t take us long huh). So why burden yourself with broken promises so early in the year, we really don’t need the stress. Don’t get down on yourself though- just don’t make resolutions! I’m not saying don’t strive to be a better version of yourself, because we all want that. I’m simply saying cut yourself some much needed slack. Read more here https://curlielocs.com/fitness/
