Barbie Puts the "B" in BOSS!

I love getting a glimpse into the lives of my favorite fashionista, that's why I started following Barbie on Instagram! But what really makes Barbie fabulous is her new job! She now works at LinkedIn—a business-oriented social networking service. Barbie just joined the social media site a few weeks ago, and she already has thousands of followers!

Go Pink- Take the Pledge!

Go Pink! ABC News & WPLG Local 10 News is going PINK during the month of October! The purpose is to shed light on breast cancer. Here's a look at our promotional commercial.
 For me, it's a personal mission. I lost my Grandma Lela to breast cancer years ago. She was the glue that held the Jones family together—until she lost her battle with breast cancer.

 It was very taboo to talk about Breast Cancer back in 1976. When they found the cancer in my Grandmother it was too late! According to the National Cancer Institute, black women are twice as likely to die of breast cancer compared to white women. The problem is that when the cancer is finally diagnosed it often in its late stages.
That's why I took the Go Pink ChallengeArm yourself with facts about breast cancer--and take the pledge to know your risk.
