In the last few years, working from home has gone from being a rarity to a reality. With advances in technology, more people are able to link to work from their home computers or laptops.

In the world that is all things beauty pageants, women of African descent have been making quite the strides in the industry. Outside of African countries, black women are surely making their marks.

Today, we have seen numerous black women win Miss America and Miss USA . Black or biracial beauty queens have also won in Central and South America (Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil) Europe (France, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, UK, Hungary, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark) and now Asia.

I am glad to see that Zendaya has accepted a second apology from Giuliana Rancic. The second apology was a definite improvement over the first attempt to quell a growing outrage about comments she made about Zendaya’s hair at the 87th Academy Awards – The Oscars.

As a life coach who coaches women on high standards in looking for quality men I was particularly intrigued to read this post about Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict. Some women fall for anything and accept a man with no job, car, prospects nor potential for anything that remotely resembles being a good husband, father and provider. I advise clients of which to steer clear of these types and run the other way. They are disasters waiting to happen. I coach women on how to carefully vet men and eventually they will know how to spot keepers. In addition I recommend my clients read The Rules.
Thanks to Raynika for sharing her romance story with Interracial Marriage and Family. Brandon is truly my soul mate.

By Ashlyn Sully of the Ashlyn Sully Blog. I work as a waitress. Last night I had a table of about 6 extremely drunk guys come in. Although they were not my table, every time I would walk by them to fill someone’s drink (They were sitting in a table right next to our pop machine) they would cat call me. I started out by ignoring it, why fuel the fire, right? However, when one of them blurted out that I am a “fine piece of ass” my patience was wearing thin. I turned around, smiled, and stated “Yeah, my boyfriend thinks so too.”
In all honesty, looking back I should have just remained silent like I had been doing. But hindsight is always 20/20. The guys then all started laughing and saying that they were just trying to “compliment me” and that I didn’t have to be “such a bitch about things” *This is when I started getting angry and probably should have walked away, but sometimes I have a smart mouth.*
Lissette Torres Gonzalez a bella Afro-Latina and her beautiful family has had an established online presence for quite some time.

Lissette and her husband Ali share a love so strong, that it literally came off the page to the readers.
