Amoeba Music

By Tiffani | September 30, 2020

Amoeba Music I finally went to Amoeba music after wanting to go for months. I originally posted this in May of 2019, now just over a year later this location has been shut down. It’s so disappointing that the asshole in charge doesn’t care about small businesses whatsoever. I recall an outlandish statement he made … Continue reading “Amoeba Music”

Representation Matters

By Tiffani | September 28, 2020

Representation Matters As a young black girl growing up in a predominately white neighborhood, it was very easy to lose your sense of self. Luckily my parents instilled in me what it meant to be black and how being “different” is nothing to be ashamed of. Of course, the older you get, you begin to … Continue reading “Representation Matters”

By Tiffani | September 23, 2020

Ayesha Curry’s Cook Book “The Full Plate” If you’re like me, you’ve ran out of things to cook and are tired of eating the same shit over and over again. I am also a weakling and am allergic to all things dairy and tree nut related, so that doesn’t give me many options (thanks immune … Continue reading “Ayesha Curry’s Cook Book “The Full Plate””

Stepping Out of your Comfort Zone

By Tiffani | September 21, 2020

Stepping Out of your Comfort Zone Being stuck is played out. Nowadays there are too many different avenues and opportunities, and too few excuses as to why you should be stuck in your comfort zone. This doesn’t mean you should go out and go viral or start a singing career, but it does mean that … Continue reading “Stepping Out of your Comfort Zone”

Being Selfish vs. Selfless

By Tiffani | September 19, 2020

Being Selfish vs. Selfless People today are extremely selfish. I feel as though society has forgotten about morals and the golden rule “treat others how you want to be treated”. The world we live in today, encourages people to only think about themselves. It’s always “me” first, then “you” later… or sometimes never. It’s never … Continue reading “Being Selfish vs. Selfless”

This quaint little eatery is located right off of Ventura Boulevard and is impossible to miss. The owners Morr … Continue reading “Leo & Lily”

How Drag Inspires Me A few years back I was flipping through channels looking for something to watch, and I landed on something called Rupaul’s Drag Race. Being born in the nineties I had already heard of Rupaul because of many appearances on different TV programs and famous song “Supermodel (You Better Work)”, but I … Continue reading “How Drag Inspires Me”

F.R.I.E.N.D.S… The One with the Best Style Moments Despite what Gen Z’ers might think, Friends is a great TV show and a huge staple in pop culture history. Sure some of the themes and commentary are a bit dated now in 2020, but the fashion still holds up. Rachel was always the most fashionable of … Continue reading “F.R.I.E.N.D.S… The One with the Best Style Moments”

Being The Awkward Black Girl

By Tiffani | September 9, 2020

Being The Awkward Black Girl For decades black women have been put into the same few categories; sassy, aggressive or ratchet. Not only are these stereotypes overtly offensive, they don’t even apply to the majority of us. A lot of us black girls are actually pretty quirky, and even a little bit awkward! I’ve always … Continue reading “Being The Awkward Black Girl”
