I was very careful with my newborns and did not take them out to church for at least 3 weeks. Still I could not imagine the horror this couple, suffered at the death of their beautiful baby girl. According to the Daily Mail, A family has been left devastated following the death of their newborn baby after she contracted a herpes virus from coming in contact with someone with a cold sore. Eloise Lampton, who was born healthily on November 1 via caesarean at Mackay Hospital in far north Queensland, died last week in the arms of her parents Sarah Pugh, 28, and Douglas Lampton, 35.The 24-day-old baby had been unknowingly infected with the herpes simplex virus while she was still in hospital in the days following her birth.
Amidst all the happy chatter and sweet coffee aroma which filled the entire cafe that morning of a public holiday, I spotted him right away. Deeply engrossed in Sun Tzu’s “Art of War”, he hadn’t noticed me and was completely oblivious to all the activity around him. Some things never change…
LAS VEGAS. NV–A mother is heartbroken after she claims bullying drove her 14-year-old daughter to take her own life.
“All of our lives are going to be missing one key factor, and that’s Carla,” said Carla’s mother, Natika Bird.
Natika Bird can’t bare to think what her life will be like without her teenage daughter, Carla. She says she was the type of girl who was reserved at times, but mostly happy and bubbly.
For those of you who do decide to relocate or move for whatever reason be it love, work, study or just a change, you should always have a plan B and C if need be. In other words, you need a way out if things don’t work out — the old standby if you will.
With one sister boasting fair skin with ginger hair and the other having darker skin with curls, you may find it hard to believe these two are twins.

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.
If you are going to be a superstar in the spotlight, you have to take the bad with the good. Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has had her share of bullying on social media sites like Twitter. A few searches will reveal beefs with Azealia Banks, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip and even Papa Johns Pizza.
Eddie Murphy and Paige Butcher
I have to give it to Eddie Murphy for his refusal to depict Bill Cosby in sketch comedy on the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special.
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.
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. They been a part of many blogs, networks and websites over the past ten or so years. I followed Lissette after my very first interview with her some 7 years ago; and it got several hundred hits. Lissette and her husband Ali share a love so strong, that it literally came off the page to the readers.
Talk about apples not falling far from the tree. Well, these two parents, Bradley and Wendy Knudson refused to put up with their lovely daughter being bullied. They did not just offer lip service and throw their hands up in helplessness and disgust. The Knudson’s took action. When attempts to communicate were not effective, Brad took to Youtube and called the bully family out. Let’s see how the bullies deal with the public backlash and being outed for their shameful and despicable behavior. Some of us will have to deal with bullies relating to our children regardless of the racial aspect. Bullies are mean – period!
Some states allow first cousins to marry. Some of those states allow it with restrictions and some have none. A Spanish speaking couple I knew had asked me to help them learn what they needed for a civil ceremony in Denver back in the 1980s. So I checked into the process for them and found out all this other information about marriage laws in Colorado. I always found it funny about the cousins getting married and just tucked it away in the back of my mind.
Let’s face it, many of us never consider obtaining and education abroad. Some of us just never think about it. If you have never been exposed to the possibility it is no wonder that you may never know that there is a world of options available to you. But for those some the cost could be a deterrent to those who do know about universities overseas. I found a Facebook Fafsa International Universities page that doesn’t update much but has good information.
A friend in one of my Facebook groups recently asked members what kind of music was played at our weddings. I had not thought much about it in nineteen years but it was refreshing to think about it. We did not have Youtube in 1995 so it was serendipitous to find all the tunes online.
Both Fawn Stone and Lakesha Yvette Walker were featured as singles on Interracial Marriage and Family, formerly Swirling and Marriage. I have not been single for quite some time but as a dating and life coach understand that it is quite hard out there for women everywhere to find love. Throw in beautiful, successful and accomplished black women, the odds rise even higher. I had lunch with Fawn and Lakesha in the summer and am still blown over in amazement as to why these young, sexy, gorgeous women at their age and in their respective professions were still single. I encouraged them, strategized and discussed a game plan for each. That game plan included swirling for these smart, hot, gorgeous women. Half the battle is won as they are very much open to interracial relationships. Neither Fawn nor Lakesha have limited themselves to dating black men only, but are inclusive of love in whatever skin shade they find it. That is a very good thing!
60 years is so long to wait but in this case late is definitely better than never. Stories like this are so inspiring and leaves one with such hope for our future. But it also makes me want to go back in time and punch some folks in the nose. Joan Williams will finally take her place atop a float in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses on New Year’s Day 2015. I am thrilled that Mrs. Williams is alive to receive this honor. Here’s to good things coming full circle.
