Editors Note

Posted by Editor On Mar - 14 - 2011

It seems that with every new month, I’m personally faced with the desire to ‘move on up’; forward, to progress in all aspects. This means continually setting new goals and striving to achieve them. Where am I getting with this, you ask, well, each month I look forward to making this magazine something greater. It’s slowly taking form, we might not be ‘movin on up to a New York deluxe apartment on the East side’ like George and Weezy, but I have played with the thought of seeing AfroElle in greater places.

A phenomenal woman to me is one that has a great purpose; she is passionate, compassionate, humble, caring and giving. She exudes a beauty that reflects great values, wisdom and strength. She is one that will use her influence to bring about positive change. She is a servant.

Amy Ohen and Jonathon Mauritz met at a coffee shop. When asked what her first impression of Jonathon was, Amy says she thought Jonathon was a college frat boy. “I was surprised that he was flirting with me because I was minding my own business studying in my comfy sweatpants and t-shirt.

In The Kitchen With Yolis Green Living

Posted by Editor On Mar - 14 - 2011

I started eating plant-based diet in 2001. At the time, I wanted to impress a guy I was dating with my culinary skills and converting foods I loved to eat into vegan meals, it soon became second nature to me. Over a few months, I noticed some significant changes just from choosing differently in what I consumed. Lost a lot of weight, had fewer allergies, and my cramps disappeared. I acknowledged that my results were payoff of eliminating dairy from my diet.

I try to master the "boyfriend look". Baggy shirts, sweatshirts, men's button up's and such. I might not have a boyfriend but taking my brother's clothes work just as well. I like the mystery it brings behind it, people wonder and question me if I'm a tomboy.

Singular Journal : I Waited To Meet Him in 2010

Posted by AfroElle On 1:53 AM

"Love has indeed become overrated in our society. I guess many of us singles are caught up in the hope of being found and finally letting go of the seemingly dreaded title of "Miss".

2010 was an interesting year as pertains to love. I attended the most weddings to last me a lifetime. Perhaps if there was a job for 'professional wedding attendee' then I would have scooped that award hands down. You would not be wrong to think that I attended the weddings in hope of meeting "the one". As is the norm in weddings when it was time to catch the bouquet I jumped at the opportunity hoping luck would be my portion. Well I obviously was elbowed away by others that were more determined.

The past year's events in the love arena have almost left me feeling underachieved. The irony is that in 2010 I achieved a lot pertaining to my life. Question is how do you explain your seemingly lateness in joining the marriage cruise that all seem to be boarding as though on cue. If you could only get that one person that will say the very words that will cause your heart to skip a beat and put a ring on your finger.

2010 was planned out and much as I didn’t attain that one thing, I look back and realize that perhaps waiting was my issue. I turned the dream of meeting Mr. Right to a nightmare because my mind was fixated on meeting him in 2010. I obviously want the redemption of having a man but what happens if he does not come when I want, of which he dint. I have heard repeatedly that being single is a gift. Honestly, I thought you gotta be kidding to say that. I let my single state rob me the joy of living a fulfilled life. I reevaluated my life and I’m glad that am Single, Smart and Beautiful.

While I wait for my Priest, I will make another's life better by giving of my time, resources and talents. I have this glow on my face and it’s not because I got a man, it is a glow of living my life to the fullest.

Yes I am in love,in love with my life and where am at.

Hello 2011 being single is not so bad after all!"
