Ch-ch-ch-changes

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Just a few things I'd like to address in reference to my new schedule and various other aspects of our little community and what role I play in it. Firstly, I've taken on a serious pursuit of furthering my education. It's proven to be a challenge, as I have always been a part time provider; now I will be even less accessible. Don't get me wrong--I love learning and academia at the higher level is quite stimulating. Unfortunately, I won't be able to recover from cancellations as I have in the ...

Bums in Britches

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Monday, December 3, 2012


What makes a woman's physique "womanly?"Vicky Secret tells us the less flesh, the better. Pornography proclaims the biggest contrast between breast size and waist line gets the prize. Studies tell us men prefer, at the innate level, rounder hips, as they send the message of child bearing and femininity. The truth is, there is no right answer is there? When it comes to sexual attraction, it would simply be an act in futility trying to figure out what body type is mostly preferred.

What I have ...

A step toward socialized medicine? Not so fast...

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Tuesday, July 10, 2012
To some, it's considered haughty to discuss politics and religion in social and more particularly, professional circumstances. I'm critical of such nonsense because I feel, along with most sensible people, that I'm capable of having a well thought out discussion predicated on a disagreement without feeling awkward or defeated in some way. I find social constraints of speech, opinion, and free thinking to be counter productive in the quest for knowledge and tolerance. For instance, a dear frie...

Is imitation synonymous with compliment? Depends on the view.

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Tuesday, February 14, 2012
As popularity grows with any facet of entertainment, imitation creeps behind it's shadow. I've been lucky enough to have experienced this within my own industry. A couple witty clients of mine have sent me links to various other providers' ads and websites containing shamelessly plagiarized content from my website. We're talking full paragraphs actually copied and pasted onto another provider's ad from my own. Yes, I did mention that I'm fortunate enough to have been a victim of theft. My phi...

" Gotta love those curls"

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Monday, February 13, 2012

I've decided to try a more natural approach to my locks. My hair is naturally curly and I have to admit, I prefer it that way. It sort of has the dark Victorian look to it that really looks great with a tight black cocktail dress. There's nothing like a head of long wavy hair on bronze skin. It's wonderfully irreverent and non-conformist. On the other hand, having straight hair is also attractive and I think my clients actually prefer it that way. I do occasionally get the question. "Why stra...

Behind the scenes of triumpth

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Monday, November 7, 2011

My interest in Independent documentaries has opened a broader perspective of issues I would have never been aware of or contemplated on my own. Awareness of humanitarian subjects, not in only in the United States, but from a global stand point keeps us grounded and gives us a sense of empathy and understanding as people; not just as Americans.
I recently watched a documentary called The Dancing Boys of Afghanistan. I breifly glanced at the synopsis and ratings without giving it much thought. ...

Tasting and smelling Chicago

Posted by Bianca DeLaCruz on Thursday, October 6, 2011

My preference for cuisine leans toward the unconventional ethnic fare. I'm very grateful to have like minded friends who  share my passion for unique flavors. They have shown me the side of the Windy City that deviates from the typical Michigan Avenue offerings to tourists. Chicago is quite an anomaly in the midst of Mid West's love affair with chain restaurants. You certainly won't find savvy Chicagoans eating at Applebees, when there is a perfectly distressed looking Spanish restaurant righ...
