my HOT guy friends

Someone jokingly said that I probably run a harem, because I have so many female friends lol, and a bunch of them have appeared on my blog. I know.... I know, I never put my guy friends on my blog or facebook. BUT its because no 1. I  have more female friends no. 2. I go out more with females & no 3. though i talk about dating, I've never put pictures or named any of the guys I've been on dates with, well except maybe Mr C. I have a battalion of friends, and some of my friends are actually guys. So this post is dedicated to some of male friends, who just happen to be cute hot.

My female friends make fun of me that I shouldn't be single, and i should just pick one of my guy friends to date, lol EWW.. ICK... EWW... lol joking guys!  So the 9 guys featured will be it'll be a mix of my real close friends, facebook friends, and blogger buddies. (which is how i like my females ;)

1. My best guy friend on earth! Mr Justin Anthony!

he's seen me without makeup, we've worked out together, he has seen me go crazy, I remember a period where I'd call, and call, and call again, about 20 times until he picked up, or sends me a text saying he was working. We talk about relationships etc. love him to death. And ladies he's actually single ;) I always feel so short beside him & I'm 5'7.5 (he's like 6'7 or something odd lol)
His Links : BLOG | @SportsAgent4U

2. Desola London
he's a super sweet heart & funny. We threw an end of summer pool party together last year, might do one again this year. He also has an accent, nice! last time I checked, single too :)
Twitter: @YourMVP

3. Meet Solieen, hot, sexy accent. Been visiting his blog for a long time now. One of my male blogger buddies. His Links: BLOG | @Soliheen | YOUTUBE |

this is a vid blog of his from the  Hot Date / worst date post:

(oh yeah....  sorry ladies this one is taken)

4. Bawo: my Mr P90x, I love that he's allergic to shirts. he's a great friend. It's funny how we met, I saw his picture on bbm via a mutal guy friend & stalked him into friendship (ok well not really, but kinda). He's pretty cool & I believe he's single, and ladies he's a Kappa, #JustSayin lol. Perhaps I should set up a matchmaking shop & hook my girl with my guys.

ok had to steal the 3rd pic from twitter for those who needed a chocolate fix! just being nice :)

Twitter: @BawoSutra

I feel like I'm exploiting my friends, lol!!!!! hmmm who else (but I took permission to post this, they just didn't know what exactly I'd say, or which picture I would use)

5. Iso
OMG! my childhood crush. I had the hugest hugest crush on this guy from age 4-10. funny I'm still friends with him and about 6 more people from kindergarten and primary school. I thank heavens that I didn't go to the same high school with him, and I moved to the U.S instead of the U.K. He currently lives in Nigeria though.
Twitter: @IsoEtete

he doesnt upload much pictures, so I had to take these pics  that were tagged via  family & friends

his brother on the right's also a cutie

6. Jullian Good
one of my cool facebook buddies, I actually remember him from myspace!!!! good gosh I miss myspace. Last time I checked he was single
His Links: @Docgoodin | FACEBOOK

7. Sakayat - one of my coolest fb buddies, we haven't talked in a while, but we've been facebook buddies forever, i don't even remember how long, so best believe when I hit London i'll be buggin him :) He's so gorgeous isn't he!

8. Mancini - well he's my little brother, and he's always honest with me, and pretty witty, so why not. I'll probably strangle any chick I know that talks to him. yes Im "that sister." When my friends joke around that my brother's cute & they want to hook him up, I gag or give them the death stare. He's kind of safe now, cause he's away in college, awwwww freshman. (I'd post about my older brother, but he just moved to... and ... I dont have enough death stares & gags to go around).

My Sister Amanda & Brother Mancini

Last pic is from 3 yrs ago, sadly he's even more buff now, I might need a bat to chase away the girl (>_<)

9. I'd show you my M.I.A friend/ former bestie Hugo, but he's wearing spandex in almost his pictures, since he tends to take pictures on halloween, or when he's inebriated. This idiot has fallen of the face of the earth. I have fun memories of when I went to college in the boonies, and I didn't have a car, so hugo will pick up me up somehow, even though he had a DUI: he'd find someone to pick me up, we'd go clubbing in Atlanta, then they would take me back to school around 1 or 3 am. I remember him calling me randomly to go to a John Legend concert (who i was sooo into & got to see backstage) *sigh* Memories, I love this idiot. This is the only non-Halloween picture I have of us: from this post

pic from 2 years ago

10.  Okay that's it for now. & if you're my guy friend, you're hot & I didn't put you up, it's because I don't want any other chick looking at you!! cuz it'll be a girl fight! & I'll whoop her ass lol (or probably cause I might have a crush on you, so you I dont really count you as a friend) :). 

& ladies I believe they are currently single, and spread around the globe, maybe I should have put their locations lol.

gotta go work on my resume, tired of objectifying my friends for the greater good :)

Shameless on Showtime (New TV Show)

Shameless is one of fave new shows out this season. I randomly caught it, and haven't missed it any Sunday (I don't have DVR so I better catch it on, or on repeat).

Its pretty dysfunctional! well it's above & beyond dysfunctional but that the beauty of it. I've only seen 2 episodes & Ive seen so many things are wrong with the characters. here's a little glimpse

The Dad
- schitzoprenic
- horrible dad
- drunk
- no job
- basically pretend he's a drunk "mouch" living with them, and you'll get the picture

The Kids

  • I can't count how many they are.
  • I see kids everywhere, red headed kids, kids that look like twins/ same age, and even the baby looks half black
  •  I have no idea who owns these kids, or how they got there

Their Neighbour/ Friends/ Landlord
-their the type of couple to have a conversation with you while their having sex, and go right back to it
- one works online, via webcam
- i love that their interracial & so fucked up.

The Love interests
- one of the kids is gay/ in the closet (sleeping with his married boss, that has kids)
- one's dating a luxury thief (super gorgeous though, I'd consider it too, ok maybe not)
- oh gosh now this one takes the piss: this character is messing around painfully with a lady & humiliating himself just for a warm bed & fine cuisine.

Most of the characters major & minor are quirky, intruiging, crazy, & lovable. I'd much rather love them from my TV screen that to know someone like this.

gosh I love fucked up characters!! & showtime feeds me my love

Catch it on SHO Sundays @ 10pm ( or whenever they repeat it same night, or via internet sources that might or might not be legal  like SurfTheChannel, TvDuck, LetMeWatchThis as of today these sites just have the UK version)

Shameless time schedule

whoa apparently BBC used to have this show to, different actors, so my UK readers might be more familiar with it. Have you seen the new Sho version or the older version, what do you think?

Strut Your Stuff & Hanging at Twist with Charles n Ada

not sure why I'm still up. My sleep schedule is really screwed. haven't been able to sleep yet. earlier:

This is now my favorite lip shade!!!! It's absolutely gorgeous. Its really red, almost with tints of orange. Its by MAC & it's called "Strut Your Stuff." I went with 3 friends & we all got it. I might go back and buy a spare because it's Limited Edition. Its absolutely gorgeous!! It's highly pigmented, I'm not wearing anything underneath it or on top of it (it also looks lovely with clear gloss on top).

The lighting distorts the image, and makes me & the lip shade appear lighter,(its much darker & vibrant in person). I've made a screen print of the swatch from MAC, so you can see right shade

click image or go to the MacCosmetics website then go to Lips>>>>Lip glass>>>Kissable Lipcolor  (make sure you click the right color!!)

so earlier today, few hours ago, last night went to Twist with my buddies Adaeze & Charles ((funny thing, their names are similar to me & my own brother, but instead my variation is Adaora))

yay 1st time Ada & Charles are on my blog.

This is where the damage occurred *insert sad face.*  As always I had my Thai Chicken Curry: 

(food pic from my summer post)

& Charles got us strawberry daiquiris.

(pic courtesy of his Twitter @charlyboyjr)

lol yeah if you read my blog I'm sure you've figured out that Twist is my fave hangout spot in Atlanta.

Gosh I felt sooo... sick after eating all that. I wished my tummy were a fridge so I could open it, and take out some of the pasta. It was delicious though :)  This ear I've been eating smaller but frequent portions, so I guess my tummy couldn't handle it. Before I could comfortably wolf this down, an appetizer, 2 creme brulees for dessert. I always feel like I need to finish my food, even when I'm full, it's silly, but next time I'm definitely taking a "doggie bag" once my meal go the tables , that way I won't feel like I'm wasting food, nor will i leave feeling sick (or I'll be smart & get sea bass like Ada).

It was such a fun & spontaneous night! I definitely love this two. BYE
No wonder the waitress was laughing!!! wish I knew, cuz i always make faces!

Got a favorite lip shade or hang out spot? I would love to read about it. Post your fave shade/ spot via twitter, facebook, or your blog  (can be an old or new post)& then submit the link here:

goodluck to all those starting school, I feel you... totally suck, but sadly we gotta suck it up

{ My Digital Treasure Chest} Jaime Martinez

what's in My Digital Treasure Chest: These are some things that have put me in awe, inspired me, things I want, and just random pretty things to look at.

I first saw this MIA animated gif on Kat Graham's (Vampire Diaries actressblog which made me look for more and I found some more on First Up and got tipped on the Artist Jaime Martinez. These images aren't like regular gif's but they have a retro vibe to them, 3d-ish, like those those hologram 3d rulers I played with as a kid, so.... 90's. So here are some of the gif's I love by Jaimie Martinez (his tumblr archive).

some non Mia that I love:

later this year I need to figure out how to make one of my self :)

Coming VERY Soon: Bombchell's Digital Treasure Chest

My Digital Treasure Chest:

I love to stalk the net, and I probably spend a huge part of my day on the internet. Sometimes when I see something, my brain bookmarks it, and at times I assume the whole world has heard of it. Or sometimes I find something so random, cool or beautiful, and I’m very happy I found it.  I would like to share stuff I find with you. The armoire in my room is pretty eclectic, and has inspired me to start a series called my digital treasure chest (I still wonder if i should have called it my digital armoire, same concept i guess). In my armoire, I have a drawer filled with magazine tears.

While looking through a magazine, I save random tears, it could be because I like the vibe of an image, the outfit, the hair style, or the mood, my reasons range. I also have a cute treasure chest that has Cd’s & 2 d.i.y stress balls. I also have dried flowers, cute candles from college; playboy bunny shot glasses, an empty big bottle of Smirnoff vodka, a record player and tons of books. For the longst time I've wondered how to share stuff in a non chaotic fashion, that would sort of make sense so thanks to my armoire, tumblr, and galadarling’s Things I love Thursdays I'm finally inspired on a method: Just label it. Thanks to my friend Tumini who helped me decided on a name, I wanted to call it Stalker Sundays but sounded too creepy lol so I had to rework it.

In the Past:

♥ I’ve had Non Mundane Mondays: which were mostly about funny videos, or anything to brighten up your Monday. I should bring it back.

♥ I’ve also done Freaking.Love.Friday (F.L.F) which was about artistic naughtiness.

So I look forward to sharing my digital treasure chest & finds with you.
You know what, here’s a picture from the top part of my armoire.

oh gosh I bought the beethhoven clueless, cause i guessed why not? lol. To be honest I actually want a bunch of reggae & love records  (& Kanye of course).

that's it.

{Love Story} Tom Ford and Richard Buckley

I didn't know Tom Ford was in a relationship. This article is pretty cool, and will melt your heart. Their story is so touching, and fun, I could see it being a romantic movie. *big sigh* It's like boy meets girl, they fall in love quickly, one chases the other. But this is guy meets guy. I love meeting or hearing about couples who stay together for so long, especially if they decided to move in together or get married after knowing eachother for a short time because it's different from the norm, and makes me believe that love exists and can breaks boundaries. I'm a total romantic, and I love dramatic love stories, cheesy love stories, gosh when i fall in love it has to be great. Enough about me, this is about Tom Ford & Richard Buckley's love story.

The Out article talks mostly about how they met & dating each other, and talks a bit on some trials and tribulations they've dealt with seeing friends with Aids, past relationships, we get to see a starry eyed Tom that wanted to grow to be a big fashion designer, Richard getting sick etc. It's a good story & you should definitely check it out. They've been dating each other for 24 years!!!! pretty impressive

some excerpts:
Every time you think, I love you, I really believe you have to say it. If you think about holding their hand or kissing them, you do it. I do it all the time.
- Tom

Tom Telling the Story:

You can look at someone and feel like you’ve known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him. He has the wildest eyes -- like an Alaskan husky. They’re not blue, they’re not gray, they’re a color you’ve never seen before -- they approach silver. They give away absolutely nothing, yet they are completely mesmerizing. We first encountered each other at a fashion show in New York in 1986. He was 38 at the time and the fashion editor of Women’s Wear Daily. He was confident and handsome in a way that made him almost unapproachable. His stare was so intense that it completely unnerved me, and when the show was over I literally bolted out the door and down the street to avoid him. Ten days later, my employer, Cathy Hardwick, sent me to the office of Women’s Wear Daily to retrieve some clothes.

Richard telling the story:

I had been back in my office about 10 minutes when the phone rang.


“This is Tom Ford from Cathy Hardwick. I was calling to see if I could ask you out for a drink or dinner some evening.”

I was totally thrown off guard, because I was starting to think he was a stuck-up little prick, so I said, “Well, tonight and tomorrow night I have business dinners. Wednesday evening I leave for the country and Thanksgiving weekend. What about a week from Wednesday?” He said that was fine. Then we stayed on the phone for a few minutes and he actually started talking to me, and I thought, He’s not stuck-up at all. Finally I said, “Look, the dinner tomorrow night is tentative. If it is canceled, can I call you at the last minute?” He said, “Sure.”

Well, that was an adrenaline-charged 24 hours for me, because I had no business dinners, no Thanksgiving in the country. Nothing. Nada. At 4:23 Tuesday afternoon I called him, said dinner had fallen through, and asked if he was still free.

This post made me realize that Tom Ford doesn't age. I just had to do the math, they met 24 years ago & Tom was 25, so now Tom's 49!!! wow he looks great. I can't believe Tom Ford will be 50 this year!!! I wish them both so much more love, and many more happy years together. Their story is so beautiful i want to cry.

Here are the links to the Out Magazine article. 
You can find Tom's side: Page 1 
& Richard's side of the story : Page 2 

images are from the out article.

I love hearing about couples so if you ever want to share your story email me!!

Take a deep breath, you can choose if Ophiuchus changes your zodiac sign or not

So there's a lot of crazy hoopla going on on twitter about zodiac signs changing. Few recent articles on the net, and this whole Ophiuchus thing has gone viral, people are freaking out that they've been mislead, feel silly for getting certain zodiac tattoos, and some feel betrayed.

hmm many of you might be confused, so let me back track. If you believe in astrology, or see it as "just for fun", you know there are 12 zodiac signs:

Well now there are claims of a new kid in school, and it's name is Ophiuchus  /ˌɒfiˈjuːkəs/ or (off-ee-YOU- cuss) (other name Serpentarius) Odd name huh? so Ophiuchus is the 13th zodiac sign. This just became popular though you can find web articles, and forums discussing this pre 2008.

Thanks to this new 13th sign {Nov 30 - Dec 17} Ophiuchus it changes the date of almost all the signs. When I heard this news I said to myself, "Its impossible that I can be any other sign, I'm impatient, strong headed & stubborn, definitely Aries." Funny enough my Birthday is April 19th so I'm an Aries in both the old & new chart. Zodiac signs have always been odd, somedays my birthday April 19th was the last for Aries, and other times April 20th was the last, so I guess people born April 20th probably always had some identity crisis, & now many other people get to experience that.

From: : Did your Zodiac Sign Change
(Below are the date ranges of the signs under three different systems. The tropical zodiac is the one you know and love; the IAU definition gives the new dates that everyone’s talking about. Dates are not set in stone, but vary each year depending on the timing of the vernal equinox, etc.)

from Betty Rhodes

Anyways before your life comes tumbling down, or you get confused, here's why things will be ok. There are different zodiac charts. This new chart follows the constellations, but there is the tropical zodiac chart that is used by many westerners, it doesn't use 13 constellations and is fixed to seasons, so no matter what happens, a 13th, 14th, or even 20th zodiac will be disregarded, So you are still the sign you have tattooed on your back. Under the tropical zodiac there are only 12 signs, and things don't change. The Babylonians knew about Ophiuchus but deliberately dropped him/ it.

So when someone tells you "Your sign is wrong." Just say no  "It's right, I follow the Tropical Zodiac" (Babylonian one, used by most Westerners), and go about your day.

CNN: No, your zodiac sign hasn't changed

That's because the tropical zodiac – which is fixed to seasons, and which Western astrology adheres to – differs from the sidereal zodiac – which is fixed to constellations and is followed more in the East, and is the type of zodiac to which the Star Tribune article ultimately refers.

Two zodiacs. That's nothing new.

"People who put stock in astrology can ask whether they should adhere to the tropical zodiac or the sidereal zodiac. Jawer argues for the tropical.

If you prefer your "new" sign, go with it. Some people felt the old signs never agreed with them & now their new horoscope characteristics finally make sense.

& if you want to be more confused, under sidereal see how your sign changes depending on whether you are born before 1990( so 1989, 1989etc)  & it changes from 1990. (link)

So under the new 13 zodiac if you are born From 1990 (link):
AQUARIUS March 26 - April 18
PISCES April 19 - May 26
ARIES May 27 - June 20
TAURUS June 21 - July27
GEMINI July 28 - August 27
CANCER August 28 - September 17
LEO September 18 - October 24
VIRGO October 25 - December 9
LIBRA December 10 - January 1
SCORPIO January 2 - January 8
OPHIUCHUS January 9 - Janury 26
SAGITTARIUS January 27 - February 27
CAPRICORN February 28 - March 25

You can go into all this in detail, with research etc, but all i need is peace of mind, so hopefully this helped you. Ignore everything else, shooo c'mon I cited CNN, lol so that's proof enough that I'm right, and you can now breathe. You are still the sign you thought you were! Now go on with your bad self, and read various horoscopes on different sites & newspapers, till you find one you like.

today's Jan 14: if your Aries it says:

this particular horoscope makes so..... much sense to me, and perhaps after June on my blog you'll understand why. check for yours. As a kid I used to love the yearly mini book cosmo girl had, it dealt with crushes etc.
Cliff Notes:
Oh well now you understand what the whole "hoopla" and hopefully you are no longer confused. But in case you are still confused  ignore this post, and continue following the zodiac signs you always did, because they aren't wrong (and if you like the new ones, follow it, because there are different zodiacs so you are also not wrong).
