Red Tails

Lucas Films will be heating up a Motion Picture screen near you January 20, 2012. 2 weeks before Black History Month one of the many stories of the Prestigious Tuskegee Airmen (the first African American pilots to fly combat squadron in World War II) will be brought to Light.  This film has an outstanding cast featuring Terrance Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr. ,
Ne-Yo, Nate Parker, Kevin Phillips, Tristan Wilds, and believe it or not Method Man. Written by none other than George Lucas. The Power House behind Lucas Films and Blockbuster's such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones Adventures we know that it will not lack in action or suspense. We are happy to see another feature film depicting a piece of our history hitting the screen.  Check out the Trailer and tell us what you think. In the mean time, we will be patiently awaiting Red Tails.

6 Ways to Approach a Man

Nobody Wants to Look Desperate

On the day I announced the Ultimate Summer Dating Challenge, my twitter timeline exploded with questions and comments. Some tweeted statements of gratitude like “thanks so much for making me step out of my comfort zone.” While others tweeted thoughts of distaste like, "men do the chasing and women should be the prey…period!” Despite the variety of commentary, there is one question that has stood out as the most frequent…so much so that I estimate for every 10 questions I get, this is one of them "Paul, how do I approach a man (without looking desperate)?”

The Secret Weapon

As a matter of fact, I can’t tell you I’ve seen a particular approach work for everyone (although the damsel in distress ranks high as a universally effective approach). So, if there are no exact words or methods …

Keeping it Natural and Hot for July

Earlier this year we covered some of the HoTTest trends for Spring and Summer 2011.  One of those trends featured Tribal prints, wedge heels, and of course nature inspired accessories (wooden bracelets, metal inspired earrings, etc.)  For July 2011 it looks like all of those trends are colliding to one look. .Natural and Beautiful.
Colors:  July's fashion trend tends to be white or light in neutrals and naturals, with linen or cotton featured as a favorite fashion fabric. 
Tips on how to keep Sophisticated and Fly: Choose clothing that's White or light in color to reflect the sun's rays. Opt for cotton or linen fabrics to keep cool.

To keep wrinkles at a minimum, choose cotton or linen blends.

Great choices for natural summer style include jewelry with wooden beads, shoes with cork heels, and handbags made of straw. It's all about an easy, breezy month, with a light neutral color palette ruling the day.

We always hear on television and in women's health magazines about Breast Cancer being the #1 Killer of women. At one point there was truth to that statement but now any form of Cancer ranks as the #2 Killer of women. So with that being said, You ask the question
"What is the #1 Killer of Women? None other than Heart Disease.
