#FineFellasFriday: Charles De Amor Clark, & Keith Mac

#FINEFELLASFRIDAY: Men Who Slay, Men Who Are Confident, Men Who Are Strong


There's nothing better than a strong, confident, fun, handsome, successful man. I love men who slay, and I'm so honored to be friends with a lot #finefellas or #menwhoslay. The men I am honoring today are hella accomplished in their fields. But, better than that they are men who have lifted me up, and reminded me that I am fun and fabulous. Thank you Charles & Keith this "good girl" loves you. Thanks for sharpening me.



Charles De Amor Clarke : Charles is definitely a love doctor. He's the kind of person who meets you where you at and then shows you an intimate reflection of yourself. I met Charles at a professionals mixer a few months back. We discovered we were kindred spirits and exchanged business cards. He went on to reveal that he wrote a book called "Alpha Female". Get this ladies it about enjoying sex, lovemaking, and what the Bible says about all that steamy stuff. SAY WHAT NOW? I still remember my face when Charles told me the concept for his book.


"What the Bible says about sex? Charles really?" I said rolling my eyes. Charles smiles at me with a devilish grin.


"It's in the Book of Solomon," he gently replied. 


As if he were some Sex Jedi who held the power of great love making. I remember rolling my eyes repeatedly at Charles. Listen, I've heard a lot of game from men and this seemed like some ploy to get in my pants. But, Charles was the real deal. He went to his car, got a copy of the book, and thus began my journey a rediscovering myself as an alpha female. I mean by reading the book, not by doing anything with Charles. (Dirty minds) I can't spoil it for you, but the book is amazing. It reminded me that my body is a temple, I am sexy, and powerful. It showed me the beauty of me, and that even as a female I can be an Alpha. It seduced me with images of strong men, men like pharaohs who appreciate and love on their women. Fall into the rabbit hole of 'Alpha Female' ladies. I'v even recommended it for men, and they have learned a thing or two. It's worth it. Honestly everytime I recommend the book people give rave reviews. It's even made some women cry. Check it out by clicking here For more on the story of how Charles and I first met read my blog 'Luh Ya Papi' about my love of latin men. (Charles and I are strictly friends by the way. I believe a man and a woman can be just friends. #ironsharpensiron


Keith Mac: What can I say about Keith Mac ? He's a total cool guy. He works for ESPN, he's met my ROLE MODEL DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON, he's a wrestler, he gives back, he has a cool, soul podcast, he's super cool. I mean I could go on and on about Keith Mac. We met when I was a young aspiring journalist at a National Association of Black Journalist conference. He quickly became a mentor and a friend. Over the years Keith would check in with a message saying "How's my favorite news reporter?" I always felt so cool getting those messages. Keith is the real deal in the friend department.


When I started to come out of my depression I had an intense desire to share my story. Keith is one of the people who read my story and offered to help. He stayed up on the phone with me on nights I had insomnia. He brainstormed with me on my next career move, and offered me comforting music from his podcast to calm my nerves. You're a true friend Keith and I'll never forget it. I'll have to come see you wrestle in person soon. Thanks for sharpening me.

Bravo Fine Fellas knowing you has made me better!

#WomenWhoSlayWednesday: Brandi Stommel Zenzel "A Compassionate Leader"

Hey dolls it's Wednesday you know what that means, it's time to get in Fomation! Yes hunty that Beyonce song was about us girls. It's about empowerment, taking charge, being a #womenwhoslays. Why do you think the chorus is, "I slay?" Cause we do slay honey. Women are important! We're mothers, nurturers, friends, lovers, compassionate, listeners. I mean I could go on. We really do RUN THE WORLD as Beyonce once sang.







Even Tupac recognized it. When he said it in his song "Keep Ya Head Up" Ya know what he said about women, "Girl keep ya head up." That song is all about us ladies so LOVE YOURSELVES. It's what God wants us to do too.



That leads me to this week's #WOMANWHOSLAYS Brandi Stommel Zenzel. She gave me the  best Mary Kay makeover I've had since I was 16. Read about it here.

The makeup was amazing but it was her spirit that really light up my soul. I needed so badly to feel heard and Brandi did that and more. She sharpened me just like it says in Proverbs 27:17 and that's what we're supposed to do dolls. After the makeup over I did a Youtube page and a blog that was nothing for me. Then Brandi paid me the nicest compliment I've gotten all week. That is so #IRONSHARPENSIRON. Thanks Doll. Show Brandi some love on Facebook she slays, and she's a good person who really cares about the soul of people. Thanks chick glad BizConnect Hampton Roads brought us together. Can't wait to see what holds in the future for your relationship professionally and personally.


Thanks for sharpening me doll.. now let's do God's work.

Introducing A Woman of Grace: Jacquelyn Grace "Our Newest Contributor"

What's good Team Good Girl? I can't say enough about my newest contributor Jacquelyn Grace. I wrote about her in my latest #WOMENWHOSLAY post, and that doesn't even cover it. She is kind, tender, patient, sweet, and unafraid to tell her story of love. She also attended my latest shopping event at The Limited in Greenbrier Mall. She was so helpful to the customers and she totally understands #ironsharpensiron. Thank You Jacqueline for joining the team.

Good Girl Chronicles is going to work hard to make sure people hear your story, because we're in the business of storytelling. 


Jacquelyn Grace has an amazing blog called 'The Art In Myself' and we at Good Girl Chronicles will help her craft that message there as well. Here is the first of what I hope will be many amazing stories from Jacquelyn Grace.



Jacqueline's First Story: Romeo & Juilet

Can you really fall in love in one day? YES. 

90% of the world is probably quoting Elsa from Frozen saying that you can’t marry someone you just met, but…well…

(Whoops spoiler alert, but the story of Romeo & Juliet is public domain, right?)

Think about it. Romeo and Juliet are teenagers. Remember when you were a teenager and fell in love for the first time? Remember how it felt so good being with this person and you felt like this feeling would last forever? Left to your own devices, you probably WOULD have eloped (thanks to different state laws, there is an age of consent nowadays that prevents young, impulsive souls from eloping).

Now, some of you are saying, “Well, remember when that feeling went away? Remember how the divorce rate in the US has risen to roughly 50%?” YES. I DO. I remember my first love. I was 16. We fell hard, and we fell fast. Within a couple of weeks, we professed our love to each other and proclaimed we wanted to be with each other forever.

We felt like we were Romeo and Juliet. Our love was forbidden. My parents thought I was too young to have a boyfriend, and his parents were afraid having a girlfriend would ruin his grades.
Love conquers all, we told ourselves. Our love is too strong, we told each other. “Why don’t we run away?” we joked with each other. Too bad we didn’t have our own cars. Or enough money to be on our own. Or common sense. I fantasized about a day when we would be together with nobody to tell us no. Or where to go. Or say we’re only dreaming.
Ok I’m done with the Aladdin reference.

Anyway, it wasn’t too long before we fell out of love with each other. Well, actually, he fell out of love with me,and I was heartbroken and inconsolable, and THEN, in typical teenager fashion, he asked me to take him back three days afterwards and I told him no. We’ve moved on to falling truly, madly, deeply for other significant others since then. 

So yeah, as much as I do remember the giddiness and impulsiveness of my teenage romance, I also remember how quickly it all ended, which also made me wonder if Romeo and Juliet would have eventually fallen out of love if they lived longer. Or lived, period.

I like to think that they would have loved each other forever. Let’s put our cynicism aside and remember that in real life, there are couples who are in love until their dying day. They do exist. They’re not unicorns or anomalies.

And I’m not going to go into a speech about choosing love above all, putting love first, love is hard work, blah blah blah because we’ve heard it all.

Instead, I’m going to be honest and say that I tried to stop myself from crying when I saw the opera version of this play. I knew the story so I didn’t expect tears to run down my face, but I couldn’t help it.

“Why was I crying?” I asked myself. Because I remembered the feeling of falling in love, being in love. I wondered if I could ever love someone so much that I’d rather die than be without them. My cynical heart had taught itself to move on and get on with functioning in life. I had taught myself not to need anyone that badly lest I get hurt–and THAT was the real tragedy…that my heart hasn’t been as open as Romeo’s or Juliet’s since my teenage years.
I remember arguing with my parents. “Why can’t you approve of him? Don’t you remember what it’s like to be in love?”

Have we become too bitter? Too wise?

How about we just let people be in love? Love on, world. Don’t let anyone, especially yourself, stop you from letting your heart be open. Perhaps if we allow ourselves to believe again in how magical love can be, we can find the kind of love, faithfulness and devotion that Romeo and Juliet had…except without the poison and daggers. 

Yeah, ain’t nobody got time for that.



What a great story. When I first read it I felt so many similarities to some of my loves in high school. Girl you've got the gift! Thank you for sharpening me doll. You are my Grace and I want to be your Hope! #letsslay #womenwhoslay #teamgoodgirlapproved #ironsharpensiron

Jenny Blow: My Safe Word! What is Yours?

WARNING: THIS IS A MATURE BLOG POST ABOUT SEX. PROCEED WITH CAUTION

My Safe Word

Now that you know a little bit about me, JENNY BLOW, here are some ground rules. Yes, in any sex game you need to have ground rules so here I am. 


MY RULES FOR ENGAGEMENT

-Don't judge or throw stones. Sex is a human thing so don't hate on me for getting mine. I am safe, and I am free. My sex isn't hurting you.


-If this blog offends you stop reading. You have a choice to continue down this rabbit hole. Is it the red pill or the blue pill as Morpheus asked in the movie 'The Matrix'


-You can offer comments, suggestions, or support. Be good! I only welcome constructive criticism whether that is grammar or mouth placement.


-Don't be afraid to like it. I've been caged by my sexuality for a long time, and there is freedom in admitting who you are; a freak, a dominate, or submissive just keep it real.


-Offer suggestions: I am not super experienced in  nontraditional sex. If you have tried something and think I could benefit by all means email me at jennyblows35@yahoo.com


-If anyone asks who Jenny Blow is tell them she is a 30 something teacher you met. She has a class of kindergartners she adores, and is kind of a big deal in her field. That is why she has to keep her sex life quiet. It's the nature of her business. You met Jenny a few years ago, and she told you she had aspirations to be a writer. This blog is her first venture.


-Don't mess with my exes or lovers-they are sacred and important to me. I will share the goods on what these men did for me and to me. If by some strange case you recognize which man it is--- DO NOT repeat it, post it, or approach him. This is a secret garden. If they are my ex, they are an ex for a reason. I don't need them in my shit.


-I deserve the right to kick your ass out of the bed if you are rude, narrow minded or threatening to spill the tea. Don't make me do that cause I'm a good lover but don't fuck with 

my reputation.

-Lastly--I have the right to change the rules of the game any time I want. This is my bedroom right? You came to play, you're DTF Jenny Blow--- well that is the rules. Let's wrap it up---get the condom out and be safe.

Now I'm ready! Let's play!

I'm the Ice Cream Man this is my song-- when I'm riding through. I'll bring the goods, you keep the secrets...

The beat on this gets me so hyped! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYSM8GAFR5I

Trust me listen to this and you know Kylie Jenner is getting the good dick. I've always thought little scrawny men like Tyga were hot as fuck. I don't know why. This is why I have fantasies about T.I. BTW I have a secret fantasy to be an "Ice Cream" man. EXCUSE ICE CREAM WOMAN

This funny gem is a carton recreation of Tyga's song 'Stimulated' where he pretty much admits to fucking Kylie Jenner and she co-signs on it. Hmm Tyga must be a freak.

OXOX - Let's have some fun.
