We sat around the kitchen table recently listening to my borrowed teenager recount his scars. It took an hour. My personal favorite was how he rode his bike, while wearing his rollerblades, with no brakes, down a very steep and winding road that I know is heavily trafficked by very fast drivers. And I remembered, again, how his mother, my business partner and close friend, told me of a study which showed that teenage boys go through a period where they are incapable of experiencing fear. They… Continue

Unfortunately dark under eye circles plague every woman in my family. I have tried several things and these are some that helped for me.
#1 Before you go to bed put 2 small wash cloths in the fridge. In the morning lie down and place a wash cloth on each eye. (If you possible can) Leave on for 10 minutes.
#2 Use same idea as above but with cucumber slices.
#3 Use same idea as above but with wet tea bags. Be careful what kind of tea you use because herbal tea has… Continue

January 15th is synonymous with two things: the birth of the great Martin Luther King and the birth of MyWorkButterfly.com. Exactly one year ago on January 15th, 2009, Terry and I stood proudly in the home of Malaak and Chris Rock, who embrace Butterfly's mission, and stated the following in front of Butterfly's amazingly talented contributors, family and dear friends. Here is what we said:

Battle of the Brands: Part II
A little over a month ago, I wrote a post on how baby formula was equivalent to brand name formulas such as Similac and Enfamil. When Hunter came into this world, I was torn between what the doctors, nurses, and friends were telling me what I should do, and what was right for me. When it was all said and done, I went down the formula path, and in the end It was the perfect choice. You can read that post… Continue
