Now doesn’t this look delicious! Wouldn’t you like to know how to make these dishes? Don’t worry.. me either!

How’s everyone today. I hope that everyone is enjoying this wonderful Sunday and the food that comes along with it. Speaking of food, I wanted to come by and tell you guys about a hilarious Instagram page, @cookingforbae! Yes, you read right cooking for bae is their name. What makes this page so funny is they say exactly what most of us think when our Instagram followers post those unidentifiable objects  on their table that we like to call “struggle plates” but they claim its “foodporn”. This page is solely dedicated to America’s ugliest foods and I am here for it. I spent an hour looking through the pictures and the captions clinching my gut while tears streamed down my face. The best part about the pictures are the people who posted them originally. They honestly believe that they are serving us Paula Deen realness with Rachel Ray laid hair.  Instead of the pats on the back that they are longing for, they end up on Cooking For Bae with the rest of the gag worthy food.

If you despise ugly food ,love a good laugh or your new diet just isn’t working, I suggest to you to follow this account!!! Don’t just take my word for it though! Check out the video and related articles too.  Pray for your local bae!

Check out this video from YouTuber KevOnStage about CookingForBae

Your turn:

Have you guys heard of this Instagram already? It’s pretty popular it over 52k followers, including myself! Have you guys ever been in a situation where you had to eat something like the food seen on this account? I have and I would love to hear your stories about the experience. How did the food taste? Don’t forget to click the link and follow Cooking for Bae.

Of course those pictures do not belong to me! Then again why would I claim them if they did?

MC: Ratchet Is The New Classy??

Hey guys!! How is everyone today? I hope that everyone is doing great! So I was talking to my friend and we began to wonder ” Is ratchet the new classy?”

When someone post a picture about fighting or sexual topics on social media they get loads of likes. When someone post positive images the likes decrease. This is also true for television. Remember I said I stop watching “Black Girls Rock” to tune into the premier of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”!

How do you guys feel about this? Should we just accept that we live in a time where there’s a new sheriff in town and that its name is Ratchet? Has the definition of class changed?

Dare or Spare
Dare or Spare
So is this 795.00 sneaker worth the hype? Would you dare to rock the Camo trend on your feet or spare yourself the empty wallets and dreams? I love this sneaker! I saw it in my November issue of InStyle in a pink color and fell in love.  Let me know your thoughts!

Vintage Stores, Not In The Upstate of SC!

So I am from a small town in South Carolina and we have no department store  let alone vintage clothing stores. We got our first thrift store 10 years ago and we only have two.  My best friend asked me to go on the hunt to see if her town, the next town over had any vintage clothing stores. I told her that I didn’t believe that they did and boy was I right. Infact it looks like we don’t like vintage in the upstate at all. All of the “Vintage Stores” that my search engine displayed either closed down or the websites no longer worked. Made me sad! Sorry Meagan!  So Meagan and I will be going on a hunt to physically find some vintage stores very soon. I will keep you posted!

So do you guys have the same problem? Do you guys know of any vintage shops in the Upstate of South Carolina. Feel free to comment below! Also I noticed that I haven’t been saying my old catch phrase. So guys feel free to comment anything below. You can tell me about your cat, the time you fell off your bike, or anything.
