Catching Up With Flight Time & Zeus Of The Harlem Globetrotters

Only a few people really know how I developed a relationship with The Harlem Globetrotters, making their visit each year one of the most anticipated ones for me.

About 5 years ago, my friend, Cubby, from Cubby and Carolina in the Morning was asked to participate and actually PLAY during a Globetrotter game at Madison Square Garden.  The bit was that he would get to practice and play with the opposing team.

When he asked me to come to support him, I thought to my myself: “Heck, I am not missing this for the world!”

Little did I know, there was a surprise in store for me too.

That day I met their super-publicist (seriously, Eric is THE BEST). After Cubby introduced us he asked if I had ever sat court-side at Madison Square Garden. (I hadn’t, duh.)

Right then he offered to upgrade my seats: Score! Now I would get to see Cubby from real close up and wouldn’t miss any of the action.

Spoiler alert: I didn’t miss any of the action, in fact I became part of it:

Whoa, flash back to the past. Look at my hair… haha! Anyway – that was day one of a life-long friendship with my Globies! These guys are the greatest.

If you’ve never been to a game, it’s much more than that… The Harlem Globetrotters are pure entertainment and lucky for us they’re playing a few area shows!

Tonight (Friday) at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ

Now You Can SMELL Like A ‘Nasty Woman’ Thanks to The Donald & BPAL

I’ve been a fan of niche perfumery for years and have HEARD of Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs for quite some time… I’m surprised it took this to get me to try it.  Hehe:

Donald Trump’s ” nasty woman” comment was one of the most memorable moments of the third presidential debate, inspiring people to stream Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” in droves, create parody websites, and generally meme the heck out of that phrase.

And now, you can smell like a Nasty Woman as well.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, a company that makes limited edition perfumes inspired by cult movies and books like Sherlock Holmes, just announced a Nasty Woman perfume. Its scent is a combination of “black fig and patchouli, filthy bourbon vanilla, honeyed amber oud, and loukhoum.”  Sounds delish!

Retailing at $24, the Nasty Woman perfume will split its proceeds between Planned Parenthood and the pro-choice campaign organization Emily’s List.

Once I get mine I’ll report back.
