KHLOE KARDASHIAN On COSMOPOLITAN: UK!!!






































CCG's-favorite-Kardashian/RealiTV Star/Model KHLOE KARDASHIAN has had a rough 2013, yet, she perseveres and looks great for the February 2014 cover of COSMOPOLITAN: UK!!!

KHLOE opens up on a range of topics including the controversy of the past year, her body/self image, and sense of humor.

KHLOE on her goals for 2014:
“In the past year I think I’ve lost around 30lbs, and I’m feeling good… I’ve worked very hard on my body so I think now I can sex it up a little! My 2014 mission is to wear a crop top with jeans. I’ve never done that so it has to happen one day.”
KHLOE on not taking herself, or her big vagina, too seriously:
“I never take myself seriously. When I joke about my camel toe or my big vagina on TV, I don’t realise how many people are watching! I’m with my sisters and we’re the same off camera – that’s how sisters are. Then I go out and someone will say, ‘Oh, my god I have a big vagina too!’ I’m like, ‘WHAT?’ That’s when I can’t believe I said that out loud. But I love to be silly and make people laugh. It’s a compliment, and liberating to think my sisters and I might make other women feel OK about talking about this stuff too.”
KHLOE on her self body image:
“She didn’t mean harm, but when I was around nine I overheard my mom telling her friend I needed a nose job. I was shocked; I hadn’t even thought about it. I’ve grown into my face, but I’ve had makeup artists tell me, ‘You should get a nose job.’”
Despite working in an industry that is reliant on image, the newly separated reality star is happy to be au naturale. “I’m so happy that I never have…I’m proud for losing weight when I wanted to and I’ve never resorted to surgery. I’m not against it – one day I probably will but it would be on my terms. I won’t be bullied into it by social media or anyone else. I love my body and always have done.”

MUGSHOT MAYHEM: MONTGOMERY MAN ARRESTED For KILLINGS Of RAPPER & COLLEGE STUDENT!!!

Man arrested in killings of Doe B. and student
Meet JASON QUAN McWILLIAMS!!!

MONTGOMERY,AL-resident JASON QUAN McWilliams, 25, surrendered to police the Sunday evening and is being held without bond.

Jail records show JASON McWILLIAMS faces two counts of CAPITAL MURDER in the Saturday morning, December 27, shootings deaths of ATLANTA rapper GLENN "DOE B" THOMAS, 22, and TROY UNIVERSITY student KIMBERLE JOHNSON, 22.

AJC reports MONTGOMERY city officials closed the CENTENNIAL BAR And GRILL after the two were fatally shot early Saturday. Six others were also injured.

One of the victims, CLARENCE YOUNG, 20, was one of about 100 people who attended a candlelight vigil in front of the shuttered business on Sunday afternoon. Young was wounded in his right shoulder and said he was at the club for a friend's birthday party, and knew the young lady from high school.

CLARENCE YOUNG said;
"It sounded like it was from just one gun. There were a lot of people in the club. I heard the first couple of shots and felt the blow."
DENEKA BULLOCK and LEA EPPS, both 21 and also from MONTGOMERY, planned the vigil and used the gathering to call for community members to address gun violence.

LEA EPPS said;
"It's time for us as a society, we have to stop leaving it to our elders to want change, we have to want it for ourselves. We have to stop putting down our books and picking up guns. We are losing a lot of young people, very young. And I think that it's time that we just stop the violence now."

I LOVE 2 EAT #23: CHIN CHIN II!!!


Two Fridays ago, Sis said that after Bro-n-Law would be off early from work, and after he arrived home, we would all go out for dinner.

CHIN CHIN II
699 PONCE De LEON AVENUE
ATLANTA, GA 30308
404.881.1511

Sun : 4:30 PM - 10:30 PM
Mon - Thu: 11:00 AM - 10:30 PM
Fri: 11:00 AM - 10:59 PM
Sat: 11:59 AM - 10:59 PM

If y'all did not already know, Yours Truly, CCG loves him some ASIAN Cuisine.

Conveniently located in the 600 block of PONCE De LEON AVE., in the MIDTOWN neighborhood of ATLANTA, Pan-Asian/Sushi eatery CHIN CHIN II offers a wide range of gastronomic gems originating from various countries within the continent of ASIA, a fresh SUSHI BAR, and an extensive WINE LIST.

Bro-n-Law, Sis, Niecy, and Ya Boy CCG arrived at about 7:00 PM to a busy, yet, not crowded house.

Our party of four was immediately seated, and began with a round of Ice Water for everyone.

Sis began with an order of VEGETABLE POT STICKERS (bottom photo) for all to enjoy. CCG had previously not ever sampled this particular delicacy. However; it was most enjoyable.

The dough was cooked to a tender firmness, so that it was malleable enough to maintained the proper amount of moisture without being droopy, yet; firm without being too hard. You know - just right.

CCG decided to make it a SUSHI COMBO night, and ordered the CHIN CHIN FRIED COMBO, the TEMPURA LOVERS Combo (left and right in below photo), and Sweet Tea.

The Chin Chin Fried Combo consists of a combination of Bagel, California, and Salmon Rolls that are contained within a fried crunch wrap.

Tempura is an ASIAN style of frying, so the Tempura Lovers Combo consists of 2 Shrimp, 3 Eggplant slices, and 3 Sweet Potato slices. ALL of this is fried.

Whoever knew that one could enjoy a full meal of Fried Vegetables, and; still be completely SATIATED?!?!?

yea, Yes, YES, YEEEEEAAAH, Baby!!!

GOOD FOOD, GOOD COMPANY, GOOD CONVERSATION, GOOD LOCATION, GOOD SERVICE, GOOD TIMES!!!

CARMELA: "I AM MORE THAN JUST A NAKED PROSTITUTE WHO SMOKES CRACK"!!!

chris_arnade
Meet CARMELA!!!

CARMELA resides in HUNTS POINT, the poorest of the poor neighborhoods in all of NEW YORK CITY.

CARMELA was placed in foster care at age 6. By age 12, she had resided with six different foster families and suffered physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at each of those six homes.

At age 12, she decided it was time to leave, and left. Thus began her lifetime of trying to earn enough money to survive on the streets.           

She soon took to self medicating with ANGEL DUST, CRACK COCAINE, and HEROIN; ultimately winding up addicted to Heroin and Crack Cocaine.

Photographer CHRIS ARNADE uses his photos to illustrate her words as CARMELA tells her own story in the article, I AM MORE THAN JUST A NAKED PROSTITUTE WHO SMOKES CRACK.

CARMELA said;
"When did I start prostituting? I always have. I mean I always thought you had to give up your body for food or to find a place to sleep. I never knew it had a fancy name like prostitution till I was like 16. I just knew it as the way a girl lived on the streets.”
“Men come here. They buy me drugs. I do as much as I can. Heroin ‘cause I like to forget and crack to wake me up.”
“I was clean for about two years. I went looking for my birth parents. My mom died from drugs when I would of been ten. My dad, nobody knows who that man was.”

CARMELA wants the reader to know that though this is how she has lived for most of her life, and so this is the only life she knows - she is more than just what she does to live.
“I am more than just a naked prostitute who smokes crack. I may seem comfortable being that but I am not.”
“I hate what I do. I feel guilty and embarrassed by being out here hustling. I get clean and somehow I keep coming back. It’s the only thing I know, the only place I have power.”
CARMELA laments on the life filled with love that she has always wanted, never had the chance to have, and hence; for the love that it seems - she has stopped looking.
“You know what I have always wanted to be? A square. That kid who did everything right and had parents who hugged them and told them how much they loved them.”
“Love? There is no love out here. People only want what they can get from you then they throw you away. I stopped trying to find love.”
CARMELA writes;
 "Don’t worry.
Don’t worry if you hear me cry,
I am just letting out the frustration inside.
Don’t worry if you hear me yell, “Go to hell”
I am just tired of him saying you better not tell.
Don’t worry if I seem tired and weak,
Its just my soles are worn from hustling in these streets.
Don’t worry about me,
Because I am a survivor,
I’ll always eat."

I LOVE 2 EAT #22: MARDI GRAS CAFE'!!!


GOOD SUNDAY!!!

Wednesday, December 11; while Bro-n-Law took Sis out for dinner; Yours Truly, CCG gave them a break and took 9-year-old Niecy out for dinner.

MARDI GRAS CAFE'
886 MARTIN LUTHER KING Jr Dr SW
ATLANTA, GA 30314
404.228.2737

Monday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Tuesday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Wednesday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Thursday11:00 am – 9:00 pm
Friday11:00 am – 11:00 pm
Saturday11:00 am – 11:00 pm
Sunday12:00 – 6:00 pm

 
MARDI GRAS CAFE': RESTAURANT & LOUNGE is conveniently located across the street from GROWN MONEY ENTERTAINMENT in the 800 block of MLK in Southwest ATLANTA, and has a menu that offers both traditional NEW ORLEANS CREOLE as well as CONTEMPORARY SOUL FOOD cuisine.

The MARDI GRAS CAFE' Dining Room is located downstairs, features a completely OPEN KITCHEN, and appears to comfortably seat about 25 persons; while the Lounge is located upstairs.

Your meal is ordered at the front counter, and is delivered to your table.

We were greeted by the entire staff, including the chefs who were very busy throwing down their culinary concoctions.

Ya Boy CCG has not yet been upstairs to view the lounge.

CCG chose the JAMBALAYA, with a side order of GARLIC SPINACH; while Niecy had the 9-piece LEMON PEPPER WINGS & FRIES. We both drank Sweet Tea.

JAMBALAYA is a traditional NEW ORLEANS dish, with its' roots in AFRICA. It is generally rice, shrimp, chicken, and sausage (beef, pork, or turkey), that is accented with a tomato-based  sauce. They use beef sausage.

The rice was evenly cooked, meaning; firm without being hard, or, mushy-soft. The shrimp were of the medium-to-large variety (NICE!!!), the chicken was easily discerned to be from the breast, and the sausage chunks were very meaty. 

The sauce accented each of the individual the elements very well, giving the meal a good old fashioned creole kick, while neither overwhelming the individual ingredients, or, consuming the entire dish.

It was most satisfying to enjoy the distinctive flavors of the shrimp, chicken, and sausage, inside of a dish that utilizes all three - and is covered by sauce.

Niecy is 9 years old, and loves LEMON PEPPER WINGS. CCG is 46, and doesn't.

One of the primary reasons for this is that they tend to be flavored with TOO MUCH lemon, or; TOO MUCH pepper.

However; CCG did try one of wings from her plate and found it to be quite refreshing.

It was perfectly fried Golden Crispy Brown, and both the Lemon and Pepper seasonings accented the chicken. The French Fries were fresh-out-the-grease hot (NICE!!!).

CCG really appreciated that the wing did not shellac the entire inside of his mouth with that gawdawful lemon-and-pepper-that-never-goes-away taste.

YOU Know!!!

Only one issue; there are stairs inside the entrance door, and stairs from the restaurant to the lounge.

CCG saw neither a ramp for handicapped access to the restaurant, or; an elevator for access to the lounge.

GOOD FOOD, GOOD COMPANY, GOOD SERVICE, GOOD LOCATION, GOOD TIMES!!!

WOMAN KNOW THYSELF: TOP 10 TIPS FOR A BETTER BUTT!!!


PEACE, LOVE, JOY, And ABUNDANTLY HAPPY HOLIDAY GREETINGS to ALL of My CRAZY COOL GROOVY Lovely, Luscious, Life-Loving Ladies of ALL Colors, Shapes, Sizes, Flavors, Persuasions, and Denominations!!!

Very recently, Yours Truly, CCG posted to the WOMAN KNOW THYSELF series, WOMAN KNOW THYSELF: A BIGG BUTT Is A BLESSED BUTT!!!, which spoke to the potential health benefits for women that have a naturally curvaceous backside.

BUTT; do you, u, You, U, or YOU want that BOOTYLICIOUS Butt, you know; the one that looks good, or; even better in everything from jeans and pencil skirts, to shorts and a swimsuit, or; AU NATUREL???

Well, this time around, we offer some helpful hints to aid you in keeping your badonkadonk Bouncing and Behaving, and NOT Droopy and Jiggly.

To lift, shape and tone your gluteals—a.k.a. butt muscles—burn off unwanted fat on and around your butt with cardio, it takes a combination of good eating, strength exercises, and all day mini-workouts.

With that in mind; get ready to Stretch, Tone, Shape, Lift and Work that DARLING DERRIERE with these 7 Suggestions from the TOP 10 TIPS FOR A BETTER BUTT:

1. Eat To Grow:

Your glutes are just like any other muscle in that they need protein and calories to grow. To support your training, add calories to your diet by way of lean proteins such as chicken breasts, egg whites and tuna. Fuel your workouts with complex carbs like oatmeal, brown rice and sweet potatoes.

2. Eat Clean:

Choose natural unprocessed foods first and foremost. Keep in mind the longer something remains eatable on your shelf the longer it will remain on your thighs. Strive to consume the majority of your calories from whole foods rather than shakes and bars. Look for natural carbs in the forms of fruits and veggies, and healthy dietary fat from sources such as coconut oil, olive oil, raw nuts, seeds, and avocado. Keep processed foods, grains, soy, refined sugars, dairy, and diet products with artificial sweeteners in them to a minimum, if at all.

3. Walk Stairs Or Hills As Much As Possible:

When you walk the stairs, or up a hill, you are directly putting stress on the back of the leg and the butt area.  This is the perfect way to tone, tighten, strengthen, and smooth out the areas.  There is no magic number, or steepness, but if either are available, try to walk them.  Over time, this will not only help you lose the cellulite and tone the area, but it will give your butt a nice lift that is even better than the results you can get with surgery.

4. Squeeeeeeeze!!!:

Have you ever heard of isometric butt squeezes? Basically, this will involve you laying face down and squeezing your butt together as long and as hard as you possibly can. Your butt will tone up and you’ll lose some butt fat in just a few weeks If you hold your breath when doing these exercises, it’ll make them even more effective!

5. Cardiovascular & Weight Training:

Cardiovascular exercises are the best form of exercises to perform. You need to make sure you are moving your body for at least thirty minutes each day. Weight training is also a good method to use and it can help you not only lose butt fat, but build up muscle.

6. Spot Train Those Glutes:

If you are working out, and still see no improvements in your butt fat, you’ve got to pay more attention to that very area. Surely, you’ll be losing weight all over, but to tone that specific muscle groups, you should give more attention to spot training your butt. Make sure you spend a good half of your work out on toning that butt!

7. Try the 30-Second Rule:

Instead of rushing through squats and lunges, hold for 30 seconds at the lowest point of the move. This not only helps to spice up your routine but also allows you to take an extra-deep contraction through your glutes and core and stabilize your spine before lifting back up.

WOMAN KNOW THYSELF, BETTER UP That BOOTYFUL BUTT, And KNOW THYSELF!!!

PEACE, LOVE, JOY, HAPPYNESS, And BEAUTIFUL BOUNTIFUL BLESSINGS;

RELATIONSHIPS FRIDAY: FEEL BETTER - SLEEP NAKED!!!


GOOD FRIDAY to ALL of My CRAZY COOL GROOVY Family, Friends, Frats, Fans, Followers, and Frienemies of ALL Colors, Shapes, Sizes, Flavors, Persuasions, and Denominations!!!

A recent study showed that less than 10 percent of Americans sleep in the nude.

WHAT?!?!?

How is this number so low???

Experts swear sleeping naked is actually good for you.

Take a look at the top reasons you, u, You, U, and YOU should ditch those pajamas for good!!!

BLACK DOCTOR says;

1. Help Air Things Out:

 Jennifer Landa, MD, author of The Sex Drive Solution for Women, says for WOMEN,that sleeping naked can be healthier for your private parts. While it’s totally normal to have yeast and bacteria down there, the warm environment can sometimes cause an overgrowth. One way to prevent infections is to “air it out.”

For MEN, it has also been found to increase fertility by keeping the testes at adequate temperature and retaining sperm quality.

2. Keep You Sexy:

According to naturopathic therapist Natasha Turner, best-selling author of The Hormone Diet, being too warm at night disrupts the release of your main anti-aging hormones into your body.

Dr. NATASHA TURNER says;
“As your body temperature drops, growth hormones are released and work their regenerative magic,” she says.
That keeps your skin and hair looking healthy…and SEXY.

3. Promote Weight loss:

Dr. Natasha Turner says that you can reset your fat loss hormones by sleeping naked! Sleeping naked can help melt your fat because it helps your body to cool down. As your body cools down, it releases fat-burning hormones.

These hormones also rebuild skin cells, bone cells, and muscle cells as you sleep.

KISS THE CHAOS says;

4. Help you to RELAX:

Tired or feeling anxious or stressed? GET NAKED! A hectic day at work sometimes doesn’t allow you to have that sound sleep that we cherish at the end of the day.

However, sleeping naked can ease the tension and help in giving you that adequate dose of sleep. It relaxes the body and helps in a comfortable sleep.

Medical research has shown that sleeping naked is good for those suffering from insomnia as it has a comforting effect on them. As a result, people wake up refreshed and remain energetic all day along.

5. Relieve Pain:

 Clothes restrict blood circulation.

So strip down to your skin!  It helps in eliminating tension and discomfort from the abdominal viscera nerve region and even relieves waist pain.

Those tight elastic bands do your body no justice.

6. Have A Better Sex Life:

Sleeping naked increases the feel-good bodily hormones within the brain and contributes in conditioning emotional connections together with closeness between lovers.

It produces a hormone called oxytocin, which is mainly made via skin-to-skin contact. This hormone decreases pressure so you steer clear of swift changes in moods and perform better in the daytime.

Additionally, it promotes sexual interest therefore making more intimate occasions between partners.

So there you have it... Sleep Better. Look Better. Feel Better. LOVE BETTER!!!

HAPPY SLEEP NAKED And FEEL BETTER RELATIONSHIPS FRIDAY!!!

PEACE, LOVE, And BLESSINGS;
