Go Vote: Primary Elections Today!

14 Sep

There are still a few hours left (approximately 6, actually) until the polls close in NYC for the Primary Election.

The New York Times does a great job of breaking down those who are in the race, so be informed then get out there and vote New York City!

(For those of you not in New York State, HuffPo has you covered…)

Men + GF’s + Concerts

11 Sep

Fellas, a word to the wise…

Don’t touch your girlfriend while she’s taking in the show of an IMMENSELY sexy crooner. Just let her enjoy her moment.

During Fashion’s Night Out, a few of the MASQUE ladies witnessed something so, so sad – a man trying to hold his girlfriend while she was watching Robin Thicke girate and practically molest a microphone stand. We watched as her knees buckled and she screamed everytime Sir Thicke hit a high note.

We know, you think your contact will be reminding her that you’re still there. Don’t you worry about it – chances are she already forgot about you because she’s salivating over said crooner. Chalk it up as a loss.

To avoid this altogether, take that ticket you bought for yourself and give it to one of her girlfriends! LOL This way, she won’t have to deal with you distracting her and she will have someone to share her excitement with. Just a thought 🙂

What About Your Friends?

1 Sep

No matter who you are and what you do, never forget about your friends. Never be too busy to share a laugh, get a hug, and take in one another’s smiles.

Call up a girlfriend every once in a while. Share a joke over a cup of coffee. Arrange an impromptu tanning-session while you lay on a blanket in a park. Go shopping. Indulge in a makeover. Do whatever you want, just don’t forget them.

Your friends make you who you are, and regardless of extenuating circumstances they are your foundation. It’s true that some friends are for seasons, but those who matter are here to stay. So cherish her and let her know she is loved.

Your Shorts are too DAMN short

24 Aug

No. I’m not jealous. I’m not envious of their bodies. I’m not hating on them. This is simply a matter of hygiene.

Ladies, if you commute via the MTA train system in NYC, PLEASE DON’T WEAR DAISY DUKES! Its disgusting. Especially if you are sitting while riding (no pun intended).
Here is how you know if your shorts are too damn short to ride the train:

  • If I have to shield my eyes because I can see the crease between the back of your upper thigh and rear end – Your shorts are too damn short.
  • If your butt cheek and the train seat make contact – Your shorts are too damn short.
  • If you need to slide over so that someone can sit beside you, but you can’t because the friction between the skin on your backside and the seat is too great – Your shorts are too damn short.
  • If the inside cloth of your back pockets hang lower than the jean fabric of your shorts – Your shorts are too damn short.

I understand we all have a right to look cute. The issue is, you don’t know who or what has been on that train seat. Sitting on the train with daisy dukes leaves you vulnerable to any little germs that can crawl up in your [helloooo]! Also, I don’t know where you’ve been and I don’t want to know where you’re going. I don’t want you to leave a trail on the train seat so I can find you! Feel me?
