Blushblog

Women are as complex as men proclaim but from that complexity come the most beautiful things.  From the technique of the smoky eye, to the perfect lip, to having nothing to wear, to a never ending range of emotions, women are bold, sensitive, sweet and sour.

The spirit and intent of this blog is to offer and share with women around the world insight into our vast complexities – whether beautiful or scarred.  Think of this blog as an online daily breaking of the bread.  Please do not think this blog is limited to the sweet.  We will blog all things woman.

We, the bloggers, Nadia and Rae, are long time friends.  We will present different perspectives on largely the same issues – with some creative variance.  Both ladies are from the Washington DC Metropolitan area. Nadia is a working mom with a husband, 2 year old daughter, and a baby on the way.  Rae is a bright, hardworking, single woman.

Theres always time for lipstick

My annual holiday party is tomorrow.  And thank God I am ready.  Bring it!  I started decorating right after thanksgiving.  I cleaned the kitchen a couple of days ago and have just been on super clean up duty behind myself for the past couple of days.  My roommate has been doing the same.  It feels good not to really have anything to do.  I mean, I woke up this morning and vacuumed my bedroom and scrubbed my bathroom.  But the hou...more

Coffee Quest for the Non-Coffee Lover

One of the things that made us start this blog is to share the random conversations and emails that we exchange everyday.  Yes, we exchange emails while we should be working.  You mean you don't?  This is a random email between me and 2 of our guest writers, Kendell and Brown Suga.  So Kendell doesn't like coffee.  Not one bit.  She doesn't understand me and Sugas love for it.  Yeah I ...more

Is it acting or is it real?

Ok, I have to admit, I probably watch a little too much tv.  I mean between True Blood, The Closer, Rescue Me, Locked up Abroad and others, my dvr stays full.Biography is one of my favorite channels.  I woke up one morning and Celebrity ghost stories was on.  Yes I sleep with the tv on.  It's probably why I dream so much.  Anyway, our good friend Bubba Gump, otherwise known as Mykelti Williamson was on sharing his story.  It's a little under 1...more

Baby Without Marriage?

I had a great time with friends this past weekend. One of them asked me an interesting question: If you don’t get married by a particular age, would you consider having children without a husband? I have to admit, the thought has crossed my mind, but I’d never sat down and really thought about it. I’d never really imagined my life without kids. I guess I’d never really imagined it without a husband either, but I’d given children more of a consideration. But man, what would I do? Adoption, IVF, a good night with a good friend or ex, what? And at what age is my “out-of-wedlock” age? I’ll be 35 this year....more
