 Kitty Bradshaw vs The Wig: Freetress Creta Girl I am in Hawaii for 6 weeks, blah blah blah you know the story.  Prior to coming here, as a black woman I spent about 2 weeks thinking about how I was going to wear my hair.  Also, the last u-Part wig that I wore ripped a plug of my hair out on the side from the braids being way too tight.  I wanted to give my hair a break by leaving…Read More
Week of Reflection in Hawaii: Vision of Happiness   Often times we get so caught up in the negative, that we lose sight of the "Happy".  I am here in Hawaii to not only sort out the negative, but also create a plan towards happy.  In my current state of mind, I am not happy- my soul is exhausted.  Hawaii is definitely helping with the healing process by putting me in a beautiful, beachfront, solitary confinement. Within confinement, I am…Read More
  I have been in Hawaii for one week now, and I am just starting to work on trying to relax.  I don't know how to sit still and just breathe.  I have been wound up so tight for so long, I don't know how to function any differently.  I've spent the last 8 years on the east coast fighting to survive.  Although some may say I lived a successful existence there, in my opinion I didn't have a lot…Read More

  Good Morning House Cats- Let's jump right into this review.  The Definitive Technology SoloStudio Soundbar is some type of awesome.  I have never owned an item like this, EVER!  I guess it was time for me to put on my big girl panties and add a stereo system into my home.  No more listening to boom boxes, iPods, and/or computers.  Yes, those items are all fine and good... but when it comes time to entertain guest, I needed something a…Read More
  Hey House Cats- So I mentioned in my previous technology review post that I would be reviewing a series of Definitive Technology products.  The first product was the Definitively Technology Sound Cylinder, and today's review will be on the Definitively Technology Incline Computer Speakers.  I was excited to review these speakers as I am sure we all have owned a crappy pair of computer speakers or two in our lifetime.  Whether it's at home or work, computer speakers are…Read More
  Yesterday I was invited by Team Disney to a screening of Muppets Most Wanted at the historic El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. You all know that I am a HUGE fan of classic Hollywood, and in my humble geek opinion it was an honor to be invited to the Theater because of its rich history.  The El Capitan Theater was opened back on May 3, 1926.  Currently owned by Walt Disney, the studio often screens and premieres movies at…Read More
Tech Review: Definitive Technology Sound Cylinder #AudioFest   Sound Cylinder $199.98  Retail Value Hey House Cats- So I got the opportunity to review several Definitive Technology products and the first one I will be speaking about is the Sound Cylinder.  Over the years I have purchased similar, lower end speakers to boost audio on my various gadgets... nothing ever really panned out.  I also used a few promotional speaker pods given out by Samsung at events, but they only last…Read More
