Nature's Health Tonic Who Would Have Thought


Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) has been around for ages, but most recently (as in the last few years) the tangy concoction has revealed a laundry list of health benefits that have moved the majority of us to add it as a must have to our daily routine.

I wasn't privy to the uses of ACV until a couple of years ago when one day as I was looking through my parent's pantry and found a bottle of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. I think I was looking for the vinegar to add it to my salad, but it wasn't until I read the back of the bottle that found a recipe for a simple health tonic that I've been drinking almost every morning (when I'm not making a mad dash out of the door) since then. What is this health drink? Two teaspoons of Bragg's ACV and two teaspoons of raw honey in 8 ounces of distilled water. That's it!

I'm A Busy Little Worker Bee


Well...hello there! I've been MIA from Media & Stilettos for the last four and half months or so (looking at the date of my last post), simply because I have been one busy little worker bee! A lot is being planned and I couldn't be more excited about the direction I'm moving it. Even Media & Stilettos is in on it all. As you can see I added new pages (which will soon have posts) and freshened up the banner for a more sleek and sassy appeal.

Just A Thought - Like A Bow And Arrow


Pharrell Williams Carries More Weight Than Gold

   
Philanthropist, Fashion Designer, Author, Media Mogul, Architect - are just a few words to describe Pharrell Williams, a 40 year old musician and music producer with two decades in the music industry, who without question is making IT happen.  

I don't know Pharrell personally and I never had the opportunity of meeting him, but his cover story in the December issue of Fast Company has officially placed him on my radar along with the likes of heavy hitters such as Oprah, Marc Ecko, Ryan Seacrest, Steve Harvey and Kris Jenner (hey...like her or not, she has her hustle down to a science) to name a few; allowing his pursuit of fulfilling his purpose inspire my own.

If You Want To Live A Private Life Stay Off Social Media


Social meidia has opened us up to revealing details no matter how small about ourselves with the world. With Facebook, Twitter and Instagram providing the platform for millions of users, our every move is recorded without much thought to how easy details about our lives is easy to obtain. 

Comedian Jack Vale proves just how easy and creepy it is for one or several people who want to get at you to track you down and appear out of nowhere without much effort and unbeknownst to you. 

Print Is Not Quite Dead As Magazine Readership Increases


For those of us who still love to hold a glossy in our hands and have our fingers turn the pages, appreciating the oftentimes tiresome work that publishers, editors and writers put in to producing a publication and getting it on newsstands, there is hope that our love of print is not going anywhere as the number of magazine readers increases in the U.S.

The first half of 2013 showed a decline in magazine readership, but according to the latest Gfk MRI's survey of the American Consumer, we've become interested in picking up or subscribing to a book versus going digital.
