The Revolution Will Not Be Pathologized!

April 23, 2018 - 

BY Kayla Nembhard

What does “healing” look like? What are we truly even healing from? What have we been told we need to heal from? If you have engaged in it, has this so-called healing process felt like a whole or complete one? And, even if it has been a fulfilling process, then what? What comes after such a revolution? Even as a psychotherapist, I can honestly say I am not sure I know what the notion of true healing looks like yet, especially when one considers communities of color within the context of traditional notions of counseling. Hopefully, this piece, and the ones to follow will generate a louder and more visible conversation among community toward necessary exploration and (re)discovery—remembering, that is—around this healing.

Pay gap: Florida women make 87 cents for every $1 men make, report says

April 17, 2018 - Florida women are making 87 cents for every dollar their male colleagues make, according to an annual pay gap report by the National Partnership for Women and Families. The non-profit advocacy group uses U.S. Census Bureau data to compile the pay gap in every state. They released the information in advance of "Equal Pay Day" on Tuesday. Florida, California and New York were the states with the lowest wage gaps — though even that 13-cent gap adds up, the report shows. 

All together, Florida women are losing more than $46.2 billion each year, the report says. Individually that’s a yearly difference of $5,474. Visit www.tampabay.com to read full article.

Spring Makeup? Kerry Washington Curates New Palletes for Neutrogena

April 10, 2018 - 

Here’s a not-so-Scandalous approach to easy spring makeup: Longtime Neutrogena campaign star Kerry Washington has applied her ever-tasteful eye to a pair of spring palettes for the dermatologist-recommended brand. 

Offering five neutral, smudge-proof shades for eyes promising to last up to 12 hours (thanks to built-in primer) and three shades for freshly flushed cheeks, the Essential Eye and Cheek palettes promise to be melanin friendly. What’s more? Each color is named for a quality Washington values. For eyes, there’s Brilliant (ivory), Confident (sand), Flirty (peachy brown), Focused (golden brown) and Powerful (deep brown); for cheeks, Grateful (matte warm contour), Captivating (coral) and Elegant (highlighter).
