20 Things [Some] Women Love [Gifs]

Instagram post

We can't help the things we love. If we're obsessed with an artist, we turn into a stan, if we love a drink, we tend to OD, and our penchant for bad boys is our guilty pleasure. We ran across a particularly entertaining Instagram post, "Things hoes love" and couldn't stop laughing. While most are stereotypical statements tend to ring true, we felt some obvious ones were missing. On this slow, mid-holiday work day, flip the page for a few laughs to get you to Happy Hour.

What is it about guys with a record that make them an automatic ten in some girls' books?

Stanning

It's okay to support the celebs we love, but when you start to fight over social media about a celebrity or reality star that doesn't know you, you're officially a stan.

Instagram Model Pics

If the only modeling pictures you have are Instagram posts, don't put "model" in your Instagram bio.

Reality TV Shows (LHH, RHOA,BGC)

If every night of the week is scheduled around catching cast fights, and binging on bad acting; you belong on this list.

Free before 12

If you time your entry based on when they start charging (ie. between 11pm-1am), we're talking about you.

Weaves

Not just any faux locks, we're talking the 20+ inches in hair, the 7 different colors added like blue and purple, and having it far too long with no upkeep.

Open Bar

When your night starts before the cover charge does and ends when the free drinks stop flowing.

Unaffordable Lifestyle

If you don't own your own place or car, but everything you wear is designer (Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutins, Gucci), this is you.

Ugg Boots

Can't say we're fans of Ugg boots (aren't they short for "ugly"?), but  if these are your dress-down and dress-up staple shoe, you fall in this category.

Girl-on-Girl Action

Unless you're a lesbian, faking for followers means you qualify for this list.

Food Stamps

Times are hard, we get it; if you need financial assistance, there is no shame in that. But if you're selling your food stamps when you know you need them, you fall in this category.

Leggings

Leggings are cute and convenient, but there aren't for everybody. Add some variety to your wardrobe and lose the leggings.

Other Girls' Boyfriends

What is it about a happily-taken man that some women find so attractive? If he has a ring on his finger, it's like a green light for unhappy women to wreck a happy home.

Nursing Jobs

This can be a great gig, but doesn't have to be the ultimate for women that have the ability, but not the drive to go farther.

Miami

We've all been to Miami during spring break, but if you make this your only vacation destination, you might want to invest in a sexier getaway spot.

If you can't exist without daily pipe-puffing, we're talking about you.

If half your party wardrobe consist of former T-shirts turned crop or pants transformed into distressed shorts, we're talking to you.

If you post half-naked pics and caption them, "laying down bored," we're talking to you.

As you mature, so should your taste in fragrances. If it doesn't come in a glass bottle, don't pick it up.

Kush & Splendor: 5 CBD Beauty Products That’ll Take Your Self-Care Routine From 0 To 100

Lotions, creams, and salves—oh my! With cannabidiol (CBD) popping up in just about every product you can imagine, the cannabis-infused beauty industry is clearly on the come-up. In fact, analysts predict that the “wellness” movement—as well as the legalization of Mary Jane across the world—will help rake in $25 billion globally in the next 10 years, according to Business Insider. That’s 15 percent of the $167 billion skincare market.

And what better way to up the ante on one’s wellness routine than with all-natural CBD? Just ask Dr. Lana Butner, naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist at NYC’s Modrn Sanctuary, who incorporates CBD in her treatments.

“CBD is a fantastic addition to acupuncture sessions for both its relaxation and anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving effects,” Butner shares with Vixen. “The calming effects of CBD allows for patients to deeply relax into the treatment and really tap into the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest, digestion and muscle repair/regeneration.”

She adds that CBD’s pain-relieving effects are “far-reaching,” from muscular and joint pains to migraines and arthritis—and even IBS and indigestion.

The magic lies in CBD’s ability to impact endocannabinoid receptor activity in our bodies. Without getting too wordy, our bodies come equipped with a system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the HBIC over our sleep, appetite, pain and immune system response. Also known as cannabidiol, CBD teams up with this system to help reduce inflammation and interact with neurotransmitters. According to Healthline, CBD has also been scientifically shown to impact the brain’s receptors for serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for regulating our mood and social behavior.

All that said, it’s important to note that not all CBD products are created equal. Many brands cashing in on the green beauty wave use hemp seed oil, sometimes referred to as cannabis sativa seed oil, in place of CBD... which doesn’t make them any less great! Hemp seed oil is actually high in antioxidants, amino acids, and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids—all of which are thebomb.com for your skin.

“It’s generally viewed as a superfood and is great for adding nutritional value to your diet,” Ashley Lewis, co-founder of Fleur Marché, told Well and Good last month. “In terms of skin care, it’s known as a powerful moisturizer and skin softener that doesn’t clog pores or contribute to oily skin.”

However, when companies start marketing CBD and hemp oil as one-in-the-same, that’s when things get a bit tricky.

“The biggest issue is that hemp seed oil and CBD are two totally different compounds that come from different parts of the hemp plant, have different makeups, and different benefits,” Lewis added. “Marketing them as the same thing just isn’t accurate and does a disservice to consumers who are expecting certain benefits that they won’t get from hemp seed oil and who are often paying more for what they think is CBD.”

So if you’re looking to benefit from the perks specifically attributed to CBD, make sure you’re reading labels before buying, and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Hell, ask for a product’s test results, while you’re at it. It never hurts to be sure.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, are you ready to see what all the hype is about? For this 4/20, we rounded up a few CBD (and hemp!)-infused products to help give your self-care routine a bit of a boost. Looks like your holiday just got that much kushier. You’re welcome!

Note: Data and regulations surrounding CBD and its use are still in development. That said, please don’t take anything written in this post as medical or legal advice, and definitely double check the laws in your state. Also, please do your body a favor and hit up your doctor before trying any new supplements. We’re just tryna look out for you. Okay? Okay. Read on.

Vivica A. Fox Explains Past Hesitance Behind 'Two Can Play That Game' Script

In a new interview with Essence, actress Vivica A. Fox discussed how she initially turned down her role in Two Can Play That Game based on the script. The established entertainer said it's her mission to ensure that black people are positively portrayed onscreen, and noticed the aforementioned film's prose didn't live up to those standards.

"I think the reason why—no I know the reason why—I've been doing this for such a long time is that I fight," Fox said. "When we did Two Can Play That Game, I fought for the way we talked, walked, the way we loved each other." The Set It Off actress continued to state that she consistently declined Two Can Play That Game before signing on to play the lead role. "Because the script, when I first got it, I turned it down three times because it just wasn't a good representation of African-Americans, so I fought them on everything," she noted. "I want to make sure that the images of African-Americans are as positive and as true as they can possibly be."

In 2001, the romantic comedy debuted to fanfare, boasting an all-star cast of Morris Chestnut, Mo'Nique, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Brown, Gabrielle Union, Wendy Raquel Robinson, and more. Directed by Mark Brown (Barbershop, Iverson, How To Be A Player), Fox plays a career driven person named Shante Smith who navigates a curveball when her boyfriend Keith Fenton (Chestnut) cheats on her with a co-worker.

After its release, Two Can Play That Game raked in over $22 million at the box office.

BET To Unveil Edible Billboard For 'Being Mary Jane' Wedding Finale

As Being Mary Jane comes to an end, BET is willing to offer fans a taste of what's to come in the series finale.

The network has enlisted the help of Ayesha Curry, celebrity cook and cookbook author, to create an edible billboard that also doubles as a wedding cake. The sweet treat will commemorate Mary Jane's (played by Gabrielle Union) nuptials in the two-hour series finale.

On April 20 from 1:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. at Brooklyn's Atlantic Terminal in New York, fans will be presented with the edible billboard. At the intersection of Ashland Place and Hanson Place, the closer Being Mary Jane enthusiasts get to the billboard the quicker they'll notice that the four-tiered wedding cake is created from individual boxes, each containing a slice of Curry's prized wedding cake.

All fans have to do is pull a box from the billboard, snap a picture for the 'Gram, take a bite and enjoy. Although lovers of the show won't be able to celebrate with Mary Jane herself, biting into a slice of her wedding cake, for free, is the next best thing.

Don't forget to tune into the series finale of Being Mary Jane on Tues. (April 23) at 8/7 c.

Also, check out what's to come on the series of Being Mary Jane below.
