i want to thank everyone who has encouraged sgb this year as we worked on the relaunch. as an entrepreneur, after the experiences with business developing this year, i could write a book. forreal. an encouraging, brutally honest chronicle of the life of a determined entrepreneaur as she travels from a wannabe to a superstar. in her own right. perhaps i will ...
sgb has some tricks up their sleeves. yessir. just when you thought you had us figured out, we come from left field. we're gonna leave it at that. no need to talk about it. you'll see soon for yourself.
happy, happy new year to all of you. may you dare to dream and deliver big(ger).
i've elected this as my theme song going forward. frank sinatra, nothing but the best:
cvs has opened several upscale cosmetic boutiques next to its shops. called beauty 360, the boutiques will offer free facials and nail polish treatments. the first one is here in dc and there's another one coming to california and other areas very soon.
yooo, can i tell you how much i love this movie, definitely in my top 10. i'm sitting up here , about to start dinner, and glued to the tv watching this. i can watch it over and over. i almost forgot phyllis hyman made an appearance in this. and who could forget eu "that big ole, big ole butt owww". and how about kadeem hardison in kfc talking about samuel jackson "don't do that yawl, jerri curl is ready for the world." lol loves it.
straight up, movies like this 1988 flick made us start thinking about and looking forward to college before we were ready to go. love it. and always catch something new every time i watch it.
today's the first day of kwanzaa. do you celebrate? back in the day, my late uncle introduced the family to it and he used to host a party every year on the first day. it was cool and usually the only time during the year that we were sure to see the entire fam.
hope you're christmas was just as lovely.

so uh yeh, can't say i'll be rushing out for headbands anytime soon but just in case you're interested.
my review of '08 ...
1. What did you do in 2008 that you’d never done before? tithe
6. What would you like to have in 2009 that you lacked in 2008? the majority of 2008, the sgb site was being developed. in 09 i want sgb notoriety! the notorious s.g.b. - yehhh.
12. Whose behavior merited celebration? our families for having our back and just being good peoples
17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
19. What do you wish you’d done less of? TALK about working out and not working out
30. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying? discovering that tree in front of my house grows $100 dollar bills
if you're debating whether you should or shouldn't buy that new top, those new shoes, or those new pants - buy it. chances are when you get home you'll convince yourself you really need it and be pissed that you didn't buy it.
38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year: "sorry i'm a champion" jay z
so what about knickerbockers?

rihanna! of course, right? rihanna has quickly positioned herself as a stylista. it seems she can do no wrong. she takes chances with her wardrobe and doesn't seem to mind to go left when everyone else is going right. the chick even made rocking a foot brace look cool. a true trendsetter and a refreshing style goddess. i want her closet!
time mag has named obama man of the year. no surprise here. you must check out time.com now for the "obama college years" photos. they are priceless. i'm already imagining a nice vintage tee ...
per time: "In 1980, when Obama was a freshman at Occidental College in Los Angeles, he was approached by an aspiring photographer named Lisa Jack, who asked him if he would be willing to pose for some black and white photographs that she could use in her portfolio."
throwback lil kim from 1999, shot by david lachapelle. per rolling stones magazine, it took a couple of hours to airbrush more than 100 stencils of the LV logo on kim's tiny frame. the idea made sense, especially back then, since kim always name dropped expensive labels in her rhymes.
