Ziggy Thunder: Drinking And DRIVING is BAD!!! I repeat B A D!!! Keep Your Pimple-face Snot-Nose Kid Out of Your Liquor Cabinets!

Posted on Updated on

Ziggy Thunder11

Ok, so let’s get real about the issue of teen drinking… Many kids (teens and young adults) are drinking more and more these days, and the age that they start is getting younger and younger.   The average kid starts drinking at age 14.  So by the time they’re actually 21, imagine what their drinking habits are like.

Whether we know it or not, and whether we like it or not, drinking is becoming a HUGE deal and problem in our society today.  Whether we’re the parents of these kids, or the victim of the fatal car accident they caused, or an innocent person standing by, teen drinking affects EVERYONE around them!

Lets just get straight to the stats… over 2,000 teens are killed per year because of alcohol!  And the shitty part is ADULTS ARE MAKING IT POSSIBLE!!!  Yes, I said it ADULTS!  I found this great video by Breanna Goodman called Teens and Drunk Driving. Check it out Below.

Parents who allow their kids to “only drink in the house” to try and keep them safe are failing… Tell me something, why the hell are you going to allow your damn underage pimple-face pre-teen, to drink hard liquor?… Are you CRAZY!  Were you absent the day God was handing out brains?!  YOU are the damn problem!  Again, I am not even talking about a glass of damn wine with dinner like they do in Italy.  You are providing your underage kids with access to your liquor cabinet.  Again, YOU are CRAZY and I am calling you out!  You sicko’s who want to “act” hip by letting your little mini-mee do whatever the hell they want.

Liquor store cashiers who aren’t carding these kids are failing.   A lot of this shit can be avoided if we just keep track of our kids and watch their movements when it comes to liquor!   I remember some teeny boppin’ ass kid asking me if I could go in the liquor store and get them a beer, and I simply laughed in their face and said “Hell no!  I’m too pretty to be in jail over you!”  IT’S NOT WORTH IT!!!  Don’t think otherwise, ever!

Not everyone who gets in a drunk driving accident dies, ya know..  A lot of people end up with serious body damage and face scars that they’re left with for life!  You could loose a leg, an arm, your sight, you’re anything! You don’t always die when you get in an accident, and sometimes the end result is worse than death itself.

I think the only way to cut back on teen drinking is to be responsible adults, monitor the liquor stores, and limit the alcohol at home. Pay attention to what your kids are getting interested in and know the signs!

There are plenty of books, youtube videos, and websites you can look at to educate you and your damn pimple-faced wanna be grown pre-alcoholic brat about the dangers of teenage drinking!  Don’t thank me, thank yourself.  Do the right thing and say NO to teenage drinking.

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder’s Review of the Movie Addicted… SEXY, SEXY, SEXY! Move Over 50 Shades of Grey!

Posted on

Ziggy Thunder11

Ladies, ladies, ladies!!  It’s Tuesday, meaning the #1 movie in America has been out for four whole days!  Have you seen the sexy drama Addicted!  No?  Well I’m telling you now.  After reading this article, you ought to grab you a sexy man and buy your tickets!

First of all, let me just say Sharon Leal did the damn thing playing this part!  Not only was she stylishly on point in EVERY scene, but also her attitude and with was perfect for the sex addicted character known as Ms. Zoey Reynard.

Zoey had it all, from the beautiful husband and family to the fabulous big-time career.  But it wasn’t enough. Home-girl was addicted to getting it in!  And I mean come on, who wouldn’t with her three mates (Boris Kodjoe, the all time sexy William Levy, and the magnificent Tyson Beckford) seducing her and loving her every second of the film! Let’s be real ladies, the producer couldn’t have picked sexier men for this film!  I’d love to be Ms. Leal!! Holler!

Along with the movies extreme sex scenes and lovemaking, there was a real message behind this movie. There are a million and one addictions in this world, from drugs and alcohol to food and sex!  Yes, you can be addicted to sex!!

Nothing was wrong in Zoey’s life.  She literally had it all.  But it wasn’t enough…she physically needed more. Love, romance and family simply couldn’t fulfill Zoey’s need for kinky and freaky sex with other men!  She even said to her therapist in the film that she knew she had a problem!!

I don’t want to give too much away, but giiiiiirl… let me tell you, this film is a MUST SEE as soon as possible. This isn’t one of those “watch when it comes out on DVD” kinda films.  This is a grab your man and go NOW flicks!  I saw it with my friend and we laughed, cried, “Wow’d” and everything! Sheesh, I’m getting chills just thinking about it.

One more point that I want to make about this wonderful movie is that it was based on real life situations with everyday women. Women are going through this sickness all over the world, and people are just looking at is as being slutty or being a whore.  Really, they need to check out Bev Knox Personal Development Lectures.   When shit went down and Zoey’s husband caught her being bad, he instinctively assumed she was just cheating on him because she doesn’t love him.

But towards the end of the movie, he realized that not only did she have a serious problem, but also she wasn’t doing anything to intentionally hurt the man she genuinely loved.  Oh man ladies, this is some real shit!  I want to seee it again.  It was that great!!  So like I said, make your way to the theater right now and see what I believe was the best movie out in months!  You’ll thank me later.  You’re welcome!

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder: Happily Ever After?! Has Snow White and Sleeping Beauty Brainwashed Us Women!!?! Create Your Own Damn Happily Ever After!

Posted on Updated on

Ziggy Thunder11

When I was younger, my mother would train me to think about things in a critical way, always looking at things form multiple perspectives, and not just accepting what is presented.  She never let me watch Disney princess movies like Snow White or Cinderella without asking me how I felt about the role of the main character! Her reasons were many, but mostly “You do NOT need a man to make your happily ever after Ziggy!!”   Your happily ever after is up to you!

So, it got me thinking.  Why did Disney make EVERY (ok most) princess character need a man to get her happily ever after?!  Think about it… Sleeping Beauty needed a man to come kiss her to get rid of the spell.   Princess Ariel defied her father numerous times so she can go on land and be with her human boyfriend.   Cinderella needed a man to bring her shoe back to her, why couldn’t she go get it her damn self!?!?

In MY damn opinion, Disney made women look WEAK!  And I agree with my mother, I don’t like it one bit! Why doesn’t Disney make these women strong and independent ladies who save themselves and do NOT need the aid of a man to make their happily ever after come true?  #Icant.

Instead of these beautiful young ladies needing a man to make everything better, the man should have come once they got their shit together! This just shows girls at a young age that they need a man to do the things they could have been raised themselves to do!

Along with this dependency on men bullshit, young girls also have toys that let the world know that they’re just meant to be stay at home moms and not entrepreneurs. Babies are raising babies… baby dolls are on the market that can cry, poop, and eat like real babies. Why is this what our young girls are stuck with!?

Why couldn’t mommies buy their babies little doctor sets or lawyer briefcases instead of teaching them to be teen moms! I hate it! People don’t see it but they’re def being brainwashed into living one specific way!   News flash! This isn’t the 50’s!   Women are doing big things MAN!

We are powerful in more ways than one!  Women are in politics and government offices now, they’re up there in sports and other competitive activities, and they’re the bread winners while their men stay at home with the kids! This isn’t the 60 and 70’s where we sit around at home and wait for a man to save the day!  WE are doing the saving, as it always should have been!

In all my years of living, I haven’t seen one Disney movie that shows the woman in power, UNLESS she is the villain!  And that sucks!  Where’s the woman who saves the day!?  Where’s the lady superhero who has to save the helpless man!?  Exactly. Can someone prove me wrong?!  I’ll wait….

Disney people… Yes I am calling on you!  Make more movies with positive images of women.  I am going to have 117 daughters one day, and would love to take them to see your movies.  Just think of all the money you would make on movie tickets. Come on, do it for Ziggy!  You will thank me later. You’re welcome!

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder: All About My WONDERFUL Week and The Beginning of the Rest of My Most FABULOUS Life! Happiness Tips Included…

Posted on Updated on

Ziggy Thunder11

Last week was the beginning of the rest of My Most FABULOUS life!  It was wonderful, and with every day came more positivity and happiness!  Nothing but good vibes have boarded the Ziggy train lately, and after this week… I never want to live a different way ever again!

Let me tell you about my wonderful week.  Feel free to take some notes, you’ll thank me later!  You’re welcome :)

Okay so Monday of last week started this happy spree!  Bev gave me a raise for always doing such a great job on my articles.  So when I walked in to talk to her with my bubbly personality, I knew that the outcome would be golden.  Hey, what can I say!?  I’m confident in my people-skills.

It was also a really nice week, weather wise.  So I spent a lot of my time at the beach with friends, getting my tan on!  Unfortunatley, I got sunburn… So that’s the only negative about this week.  Yes, brown people get sunburned too…lol.  My face is still peeling as I type this up.

Anywhooo, the weather was perfect and ideal for sundresses, short shorts and cute strappy sandals!  Another great plus about last week was that I decided to take my work-out to the next level!  Dancing none stop in front of the mirror for 15 minutes straight. And it feels GREAT!  Nothing too major guys, I’m not training for anything big! I just want to tone my belly and make my legs a little less jiggly.  So I’ve been walking my butt off, and doing my ab chair a little more! It’s paying off, because I’m feeling better mentally and physically.

Speaking of mentally feeling better, I’m in the very difficult process of changing my sleeping pattern!  I’ve been going to sleep later than normal and I find myself waking up even later that usual.  And that’s NOT good. My entire day is pretty much wasted when I wake up that late!  So I’m on a new mission.  I’m sure some of you out there are going through the same issue with sleep (or lack there-off).

The best part of last week was that it just naturally felt GOOD!  Bev’s motto is always Look Fabulous = Feel Fabulous = Do Fabulous = Attract Fabulous!   And I believe that concept to be oh so true.  I’ve changed my views on a lot of stuff… I cut out the negative shit that was holding me down, and latched myself onto the good things that made me feel whole and more myself.  And I feel WONDERFUL!

Bottom line… Why stick to doing things that make you unhappy?!  Why are you NOT doing the things you love to do?   Some people find this difficult and make a big deal about changing for the better.  It’s simple, do the shit that makes you happy and that will have positive results in your life. And drop the stuff that brings you down!

Everyone deserves to be happy.  I’m going to continue every week just like the last one. It was magical, and I now know that that can be every week for me!  It’s just up to me to keep it up and to keep feeling FABULOUS!

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder: My Purrrrfect Workout! I Eat Whatever I Want and Still Have Flat Abs. Learn My Secret.

Posted on Updated on

Ziggy Thunder11

Like over half the women in the world, I suck at being a healthy eater!  I can’t help it!  I like cheeseburgers and McDonald’s French fries and pepperoni and bacon pizza, and I’m not giving it up!  I do like wearing inny mini skirts and crop tops though.  So how can one go about eating whatever she wants AND wearing whatever she desires?!  I’ve come up with a plan.

I shower twice a day. In the morning when I get up, and before I go to bed each night!  And before both these showers, I’ve come up with a formula that will keep my tummy looking right so I can eat whatever I want during the day!

First, I’m going to work extra hard on my tummy, with this ab chair I took from my mothers house about a year ago!  It was a coat rack for the longest, but I finally dusted it all off and started using it.  If I do those crunches to one song on my iPod before each shower, I’m sure to feel the burn!  It’s not hard, just pull and scrunch, and results are usually seen fast and smooth!

The second part of my workout is really simple and easy.. It can be done on any set of stairs, and to be honest you just need ONE stair.  I just run in place from the ground to the stair, and back down.. does that make sense?!  Think of it this way… Right leg up, left leg up. Left leg down, right leg down.  And repeat!  Do a couple of these and you will feel it in your legs forsuree!!

Another good workout is TWERKING!!!!  Yes ladies, dancing around your room to some hoochie mama music for about fifteen minutes should really get your blood pumping!  And your booty, for that matter!  It’s fun, and you can learn some new moves while you’re getting your groove on!

There’s a bunch of things that can be done to help you exercise without even knowing it… Instead of driving to the beach that’s down the street and around a few corners, just WALK!  Walk the beach, walk to the bank, walk to get that milk you need for breakfast!  Walk with your dog, walk with a friend, or walk to clear your mind. It feels good, and your legs will thank you later!

Working out isn’t hard, especially these small workouts I’ve come up with… And if you’re like me and have trouble falling asleep sometimes, this plan will def work your body and get you ready for bed!  I went swimming in my friends pool today and did a lot of water exercises, so I’m ready for bed tonight!  I’m happy!

These tips are easy and doable, so def get your groove on and watch those pounds drop!  You’ll thank me later ladies. You’re welcome! :)

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder: 5 Things You Should NEVER Say to a Woman With Big Boobs!

Posted on Updated on

Ziggy Thunder11

As a lady with big ta ta’s myself, there are a few things that I HATE people talking to me about.  Stupid questions like “That’s a real size?!” make my blood boil!  STOP It!  I know it sounds like I have an attitude issue when it comes to this topic… well, I do!  Keep reading and learn what you shouldn’t say to big bobbied ladies!

1.  “What’s your bra size, Zigg?!”  EVERYONE asks me this question. People I work with, friends, people I’ve dated, and strangers who see me come out the fitting room at Forever 21 trying on t-shirts. Some women don’t care about telling people their size, but I don’t like attracting attention to my girls. So don’t ask me that damn question, idiot!

2.  “I agree, I hate bra shopping!”  Bitch, what!? You’re a 36B… You can find any bra at any store in any city in the United States.  I hate when girls say that to me, like you understand where I’m coming from.  Like you have the same problem!  Hell no!  I can’t find my bra size, 34DD ANYWHERE… It’s really hard to find a reasonable priced bra today.  So no, you don’t know what it’s like to be Ziggy and go bra shopping.

3.  “At least you’re not flat-chested like me!”  Actually, I would LOVE to be flat-chested like you. Don’t get me wrong, I look kick-ass in a strapless mini dress on ladies night, but bouncin’ up and down the dance floor does NOT help my bigbobbie-situation.  I’d much rather be a nice happy medium size… 36C would do the trick!  Don’t you just hate it when big-bobbied women say they wish they were a smaller size?!  Girl, sometimes its TRUE!

4.  “Is it hard to run!?”  F%$# YES, it’s very hard to run!  That’s one of the main reasons I don’t jog or run… My boobs wear me out before I even leave the block!  They’re just flopping and bouncing and hitting the bottom of my neck.  It’s really tiring, let me tell you that… And that’s not exercise, that’s torture!!

5.  “Are they real?” Oh yeah, cause I could afford a freakin’ boob job at 14 when they sprung up on my ass!  I hate when people assume that they’re fake!  No honey, they’re huge and REAL!  Now back up off me… And HELL NO you can touch them!

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder: Is Romance Alive OR Dead?! What the Heck is Romance Anyway?! A Review of a Sex & the City Episode.

Posted on Updated on

Ziggy Thunder11

So I’m doing the usual, getting my Friday afternoon fix of Sex & the City (in between writing articles, of course).  Carrie just started seeing Aleksandr P. and he is the true definition of romance!  Or, is he!? Aleksandr P. reads Carrie poetry, takes long walks through Central Park on beautiful Autumn days, and plays her classical romantic music while they hang out.

But Carrie doesn’t understand, is this really Aleksandr?!  Or is it a fake?! I mean let’s be real.. who does that anymore?  Is this really how Alexandar behaves, or is he just trying to hype up a good thing. Is he “mackin” or “smoothe-talkin” or just plain-ole’ trying to charm the pants off Carrie?!

Ok, so lets see… what is the true definition of romance?! What is romantic now-a-days anyway?!  To me, romance is getting a McDouble and fries and walking it off at my city beach boardwalk!   Talk about low standards… damn!   And for special occasions going one step further and letting you put your arms around me…lol.  To others, romance equals dinner for two at a cozy restaurant, followed by dancing at a high end jazz club and some red wine back at his place.

Aleksandr P. is walking to the opera with Carrie, and he stops in the park and hears beautiful music.  He sees this as a perfect opportunity to slow dance in the middle of the park.  And when he asks for Carrie’s hand to dance, she faints right in his arms.  When she wakes up and checks back into reality, she tells him that it’s just too much!  She can’t handle all the romance!  So they go to McDonald’s and order a super-size of everything!  Talk about romance.

Romance isn’t dead!  There are a million and one ways to be romantic. Whether you’re at Burger King or eating Chinese take-out, it’s not what you’re doing that’s romantic…but how you go about it, and with whom you’re with!

Romance isn’t just fancy-shmancy dinner dates and jazz concerts and cute shit.. It’s whatever you like… whatever makes you happy and smile with the person you’re with!  There’s nothing wrong with walking the beach at two a.m. sharing some stale popcorn you found in your car, and then coming back home to snuggle with your dog and your man… that sounds perfect to me!

Whether you’re in a serious relationship or walking down the cereal aisle at Stop & Shop with your new arm-candy… being romantic shouldn’t be that hard. Be spontaneous! Just let it happen.  Just be happy with the person you’re with and the romance will naturally sprout out and make you both smile.  You’ll thank me later. You’re welcome! :)

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!

Ziggy Thunder: A Review of Cosmo!’s Article – Standards of Beauty… An Around the World Perspective.

Posted on

Ziggy Thunder11

We all know that there are a whole lot of ways to be Beautiful!  Well if you are an informed person, you do. Check this out… So, I was reading an article in Cosmo! and was shocked at this article.  This woman took a picture of herself, and had a bunch of different countries tell her what their idea of beauty was.  The results were crazy!

From different colored eyes to different blush and lipstick colors… each picture was 100% different than the next!  It just goes to show that the world is full of different perceptions of what beauty really is.   What one person thinks is beautiful can be absolutely disgusting to someone else!

Bev always talks about how standards of beauty differ from one culture to the next.   And this article really depicts this.   While some of the pictures were completely bare (with makeup added to enhance a more pale appearance), others had her covered with full glam makeup, making her look like a totally different person!

It’s a cool article though, I enjoyed looking at the different countries and seeing their perception of beauty! Here is a link to the article if you are interested in reading it:  Cosmo!’s Article.

Some of the countries made her look like a freaking clown, others made her look like a recovering heroine addict.  I’m not sure, but in MY opinion some of those pictures were a little too over the top!  BUT, according to fashion experts over in those other countries, it was beautiful! So who am I to hate?

I myself like a more natural yet defined look, if that makes sense.   I’m not a big fan of all that color and jazz (unless I’m heading on a night out). I prefer a more natural look for everyday activities.

Regardless of the amount of makeup, or lack of it, in each picture the girl was still beautiful! No matter what everyone else did to her, she was still pretty because of who SHE was… HERSELF!

Until next time ladies, Stay beautiful. Stay positive. Stay YOU!
