New York state senator Eric Adams opted not to address current political issues like unemployment or health care in his latest public campaign. Instead "Stop the Sag" is a campaign directed at the saggy pant people of NY.....… (I didn't believe it either..) It would be too easy to post that "Pants on the Ground" American idol track ri about now so i wont even bother -- im sure you've all seen it anyway... With all due respect senator you might want to consider investing your time, energy and tax payers $$ trying to raise the economy in New York rather than the pants in New York… -Andy
H&M in San Fran used the ol' flash mob strategy to kick-off it's 2010 Spring/Summer kids line.. And although "flash mobbing/ ambush marketing" is an old strategy that's been used + abused for decades it's still one of my favourite grass root strategies for the simple fact that it demands your attention… See what I mean… you watched the whole thing… Why brands still use flash mobs: A: It really goes back to the "if it's not broken…" mentality .. Since the beginning of time flash mobs have been fun(for everyone) and extremely inexpensive not to mention when done correctly can do a great job of getting the brand message across to the consumer. With the internet and social media now playing Robin to "flash mob's" Batman I have a feeling these unannounced "random" events will be popping up a lot more often... -Andy
In the last 3 months a ton of big brands have stepped up to the social media plate but none more so then Pepsi. In todays constantly connected society the battle of the beverage brands wont be won or lost with TV and Radio ads but with social media. The standard twitter account or facebook fan page to increase brand impressions or keep your brand top of mind has quickly become "passé" and has made way for new creative social media campaigns like The Pepsi Refresh Project. A straight forward campaign where Pepsi foots the bill for your brilliant ideas to help "refresh" your community. How you get paid?: Upload your idea & project profile to refresheverything.com, then gather as many votes as you can by promoting your project within your online community. Ideas/projects with the most votes at the end of every month receive "refresh grants" to fund their project (grants range from 5k - 250k) You might wonder what Pepsi gets out of all of this? A: Your attention + thousands of positive brand impressions daily.. which is gold for any big brand that does business in a competitive industry like food & beverage.. A big pat on the back to Pepsi for this one.. -Andy

I originally was not going to say anything....But some of you have been around from the jump and I KNOW you remember and would actually enjoy this :)
Last night I was out enjoying myself as per usual, went to dinner and went to have some drinks. During dinner i'm checking my twitter timeline, and i see this...
HERE. So I did what most of you would do and hit her up, since I was the one being vented about on twitter i decided to contact her myself and see wtf was up...
Well, I gotta give her this tho, she did say...
But i'm at dinner and I don't have access to a computer where I can go into my blog to see the labels print screen the labels and send them to her, so I did what any of you would do, I share the story with my company, we laugh, and I decided to call Kenza and tell her about what happened, we're laughin it off on the phone because 1. a lil after the blog was rolling we decided as a group to have an email address set up for the blog so our readers can ASK us questions to post on the blog or even ASK us private questions where we just email them back with our opinions.
These are the posts from (see labels in green writing: fave readers, segment family, ask neb etc...) starting 4/3/09.
I guess every single blog that has an "ask" segment is copying miss Leah, even tho she just opened a blog after I let her guest blog, gosh we should all stop jockin her fresh!!!
I guess I should of been like WHY ARE YOU COPYING ME BY MAKING A BLOG ABOUT SEX???!??!?!? CUZ IIIII WROTE ABOUT SEX FIRST!!! c'amon son, let's get real.
Anyway, the guest blogger account that i set up under this blog's email is my Blackberry email. This morning my phone is going OFF, I check it and see this...
I decided to just delete that account..."someone" tried to go on the guest blogger acct. and change the email address to their own email address for whatever reason. Three times...at 10, 10:01 and 10:02 O_o
dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnnnn
well loves, sharing is caring, and I hope you enjoyed this as much as i did. Remember, tweefing (twitter beefing is NOT cute)
*turns spot light off on her and gets back to livin life*
>Hey Nebby I have a question. Its kinda broad but I would love your opinion.
My question is: what would be the reason for a person to keep going back to someone when there's no "romantic" feelings involved??
Its a little confusing for me at least, but your opinion/thoughts/views would be helpful!
In my opinion it's sadly not just ONE reason but many; sad, lonely, angry, lost, confused, comfortable, bored and the most unfortunate one of all hopeful. When there's no romantic feelings involved/just sex you have to know and not once forget that's all it is, trust me when I say this; when you keep going back to that person, you're only finding temporary solutions for the feelings that you are feeling and to make it worse, not only are you disrespecting yourself but you're also giving the other person the satisfaction of knowing that they have access to you whenever they feel like it. Don't forget that actions speak louder than words, so all that talk they are throwing your way can just go through one ear and come out the other, because if they were serious they would have made something happen. My advice would be to keep busy, whether it's school, work, hanging out with friends, spending more time with family, or whatever your hobbies are, focus on that, because if you are giving that person your time you're not allowing someone new to come into your life. You're better than that!
Wishing you the best,
If you’ve been reading this blog for a year you might remember last year around this time me an a few friends made the trip out to Detroit to watch the Final Four ....we decided to make it an annual trip so last weekend we headed to buffalo to watch the second round of the tournament..

>Hi! I have a question about jeans...what brand do you reccomend to avoid the stupid waist gap? I have a small waist and big ol hips/ ass. I splurged and ordered 2 pairs of siwwy jeans but they didnt fit how I hoped they would, and certainly not for that amount of money :( I want to actually be able to sit down in them lol
Maaaaaaaaaaaaan this is an issue i have alllllllll the time. I'm not loyal to any jean brands because as time went by what i have noticed is the more STRETCH the better fit!! My fave pair of "brand" jeans I own/wear often are 7 Jeans and Jbrand those two fit me very well, then I also have other stretch jeans that I pick up as I go from wherever (Zara, Urban Behavior, Forever21, H&M etc...) that fit like a glove.
Oh! and about the waste gap, because we are blessed/curse w small waste big assitis AVOID and i mean AVOID low waist line cuz the only thing that will do for us and have our ass hanging out of it :/
You know and I know that we don't wanna be in leggings 24/7 so Good luck!!
Got a question?

I was browsing Sandra Rose' blog when i stumbled upon a post about Luda and his new girlfriend, it made me smile to know that he has amazing taste in women!
In a recent interview with Honey magazine, Ludacris’ spoke on his current relationship status, saying “I try to preserve certain things and keep things special, and that is one thing that I would like to keep private.”
Unfortunately, Ludacris should know that as a superstar rapper, he lives his life under a microscope. His refusal to give up her name or any details about her only whet’s the blogger’s appetite for info on who she is.
Thanks to loyal reader Carsyn, we know that Luda’s fiancee’s name is Eudoxie and she’s a bilingual med student from Africa who speaks French fluently. She’s a student at the University of Miami and she’s super smart, and very low key. Luda often flies her into Atlanta to spend weekends with him at his home. And when she’s not hitting the books, she accompanies Luda to NBA games and atended his concerts while he was on tour with the Black Eyed Peas.
Additionally, Eudoxie’s Facebook page is private and she updates her statuses in French. She doesn’t mention Ludacris’ name on her FB page, but she does refer coyly to a “you know who.”
Prior to snagging Luda, Eudoxie dated a NBA player who you all should know. I’ll share more details later.
I noticed as I was growing up that I have developed a pattern where I would be friends with females, a little bit down the road we would just fall out, no explanations, no confrontations and to be honest with you...I could care less, I'm sure if you ask for their side of the story I of course would be at fault, again...I could care less.
As time went by I grew up to man up to my mistakes, apologize when I'm wrong and fight for friendships that mean a lot to me. Look at it this way, if the flow changes between me and you and I don't reach out to know what is going on that would be because I could give 2 shits bitch :) it’s been a pleasure; you can proceed with your "life".
This is no way shape or form low blows to any females I was cool with and are no longer cool with, this just came from the actuality that I’m growing closer and closer to a girl friend of mine. We fight like relatives, she keeps it 200 with me, I’m there for her, and she’s there for me. When I'm in the wrong I’m the first to apologize (few days later give or take lol) and if she's in the wrong, it's the same thing.
I recently said to her that I hate fighting with her and she went on to explain that real friends fight, they make up and become closer, fake friends … don't do that.
Thank you for being you,
xo NEB xo

All I've gotta say, is that we've definetly come a loooonnng way in fashion when you see sweatpants and most importantly Polyester are showing up on the runways of some of THE most famous design houses on the planet!
While I'm sure not everyones idea of being fashionable includes pairing sweatpants & a blazer but it's all about being comfortable in your own skin & seeming effortlessly put together.
The key to pulling off Trendy Sweats:
1) It's gotta be the right sweatpants: Draw string or banded/elasticated at the waist. I prefer elasticated hem as well- as the sweatpants will hang better and can be rolled properly.
2) Avoid looking like a slob in sweats, by adding a 'structured' shirt/blazer/vest,it'll add a more chic and polished feel. What you pair with it is the dealbreaker as there's a fine line between sloppy/bummy and comfy casual.
3) Depends on your style and where you're going, you can complete your look with some Jays ( a la Amber Rose, see below) or with a great pair of stacked wedges, round toe pumps etc..
