My Breast Curve Is My Best Curve Are You Aware???

If you haven’t noticed from all the pink items in promotion from some of your favorite brands, It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Yes there is some shade in that statement, ok there’s a lot of shade.  It’s all about the Benjamin’s for most business’, one can’t help but notice that the focus has shifted from the patients that are at risk, affected or survivors of this terrible disease to one of a monetary/marketing gain.  Yes they prey and take advantage of people’s genuine concern but hey what’s new?.  The real harm is in the misinformation.  Once it hits October everyone is “aware”, but little attention is drawn to the actual epidemic, the emotional impact this disease has on those affected, and ways we as a society can directly start a change.

The only two places women have no issue with fat are their ass and their breasts.  Women love our curves.  Curves help women to feel empowered and better about themselves that’s why millions are spent on breast lifts, breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lifts and implants.  As an older woman it is hard to go thru and deal with this body altering process, now imagine a young lady in her 20’s or 30’s who is diagnosed.  With the pressure that society has put on women in general to be “body perfect” social media has intensified more.

We see memes circulating mocking women who are less endowed on top referring them to and below.  We do see memes of males, but men do not walk around with their penis’ out, or their silhouette  constantly on display to the public unless they wear sweats 24/7, it is easy for a man to hide what he is or isn’t “packing”.  Some are unaffected by this and can laugh it off, but others aren’t mentally as strong.  Deny it if you want, but society has become very shallow and superficial in general and the psychological effects can be great causing one to spiral into a depression.  Not only are you battling a potentially terminal illness, but you also have your regular day-to-day responsibilities and that which comes with life to deal with.

Over my career the increase in young women that have been diagnosed and died from this disease that I have come in contact with has dramatically increased, again I’m talking from my own personal experiences.  Cosmetics is a major part of any young ladies regime, yet many of the products that are produced by these monopoly corporations contain toxic chemicals that have been proven to put us women at risk.  So how do we protest and protect ourselves you ask, simple stop using items that contain these same chemicals bringing us women harm.  Once they start to see the shift in their pockets, that will gain their attention and cause change.

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so be aware and start paying attention to what you put in and on your body.

 

 

 

 

 

Rip Daisy Lewellyn, Dies at 36

Bravo TV announced the passing of one of their star of Blood, Sweat, and Heels style expert Daisy Lewellyn today.  The style expert announced her battle with being newly diagnosed during season 2 of the series and took fans along her journey.  One thing I can say is that her spirit and optimism was beautiful and encouraging, the way in which she handled this was the best I’ve seen from anyone.  Part of me feels that she did that for her viewers which just goes to show how much of a selfless person she was.  Condolences to her family and friends.  Rest in peace baby girl. xoxo

 

Daisy passed on in peace and filled with joy, surrounded by her family and friends,” a Bravo spokesperson said in a statement. “We are all saddened to lose this wonderful woman. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are expressed.”

The always-optimistic style expert was battling a rare form of the disease, which was diagnosed after her makeup artists noticed an unusual coloring in her eyes. She was later diagnosed as having a cancerous tumor in her bile duct. She received treatment, including having the tumor removed as well as getting chemotherapy and radiation treatments. “I have cancer – cancer doesn’t have me. Every day comes with its challenges, but that doesn’t stop me from celebrating what I have in my life,”

RIP Big Ang…

“Don’t smoke it’s not worth it, life is too precious.”

Mob Wives star Angela Raiola aka Big Ang has lost her battle with cancer at the age of 55.  Ang recently interviewed with Dr. Oz discussing her ongoing battle with cancer from throat cancer to thinking she was cancer free to lung and brain cancer Stage IV.  Through multiple surgeries and chemotherapy.  Ang spoke on how the cancer metastasized throughout her body, hence it spreading to her lungs and brain.  Once someone is in Stage IV, death is inevitable, there isn’t much hope of survival.  I believe Ang and those close to her knew this.  She was very open about her battle with depression but what gave her hope was her family.  I am a Mob Wives fan and my sympathy goes out to her family.  Ang still had her charm and sense of humor in these trying times.

I’m not gonna sit and act like I haven’t ever smoked.  I tried cigarrettes once, and it tasted so nasty and gross I didn’t even finish smoking that one cig.  Now hookah I have done several times, and once I discovered that it is more deadly than cigarette smoking I haven’t touched it since, and don’t plan to.  Hookah smokers absorb higher concentrations of the same toxins that are found in cigarettes and are considered more deadly because the coal allows more carbon monoxide and other carcinogens to enter the system.

Cancer is one of the many battles that smokers face.  There are other pulmonary diseases like COPD that is also a death sentence.  The need to live with an oxygen tank can be very debilitating and I can not see myself lugging around dependent on a tank for survival.  I love to travel, run, and I am very active socially, so this is not conducive to my well being.

Death is inevitable so why participate in activities that will take you away sooner from the ones you love the most.  The need to fit in “look cool” when ultimately the only thing that matters is health and family.

2 Vaginas Are Better Than One…. here’s why

So naturally being the inquisitive person that I am, after meeting THE DDD (Double Dick Dude) the next thing that crossed my mind was are there any women, or a woman in existence with 2 vaginas.  Oh the fun I would have, first thing that came to mind was revolutionizing the threesome.  Yes you can loose your virginity twice…and no it doesn’t have to be with the same person!  But before I indulge in some fantaserial imagery let’s see what this abnormality is about.  Surprisingly I did find a few women with this condition.  It turns out that women with 2 vaginas are much more common than a man with 2 penis’.  Most popular person with this condition is Cassandra Bankson and Hazel Jones who have uterus didelphys.  This condition manifests itself in different ways.  A woman can have:

  • 1 vaginal opening with 2 different uteri (uterus duplex bicollis)
  • 2 vaginal openings with 1 uterus
  • 2 vaginal openings with 2 seperate uteri (uterus didelphys)

As always I like to address the con’s before the pro’s.  Issues related to this condition commonly are with fertility and fetal development.  Now as with any normal female reproductive system, if a woman has 2 uteri then naturally will have 2 periods which these women report an increase in pain.  The bad thing is if they occur different times, most of the month will be spent bleeding.  The good thing is if you have 2 different vaginal openings, then simply place a tampon in one, and continue on with your sexual activities.  Of course if a woman has 2 uteri it’s possible to become pregnant in both, and there are several cases of this, some conceived at the same time, and some conceived different times.  You need to be in tune with your body so as to not make it “controlling” of your life.

Oh what fun and pleasure it would be to have your partner fluctuating between each orifice, or even having sex and using a sex toy at the same damn time all that’s registering in my vaginal receptors is bliss, pure vaginal bliss.  Not to mention if you and your partner engage in threesomes, I see having a second vagina a gift from the GODS.
