Alluring Antigua

Cruising!  Yes, I just enjoyed a 7-day cruise of the Carribean on board the Adventure of the Seas by Royal Carribean.  One of the breathtaking stops was in the beautiful St. John’s Antigua.  If you ever go on a cruise, book the Catamaran and snorkel….IT WAS A BLAST! You forget the long walk from the ship once you are on board the sleek boat that moves quietly through the turquoise waters.  Yes it was hot

Speak over Yourself

When is the last time you spoke positively to yourself?  Did you know that the words you speak have a profound effect on your life? When you utter words about what your are going to do or how you will take action, there is going to be a return on your verbal investment.  No word goes out without coming back to you in some shape or form.  Positive affirmations have a way of uplifting your

How High Is your Hedge?

Driving through a local neighborhood, I stopped to admire the yard work in some of the yards.  The crafted care that the homeowners take to make sure that their yards are visibly appealing is truly a work of art.  I noticed how most of the hedgework was even with certain other foilage or was shaped to meet up with the wall or the edge of the home or sidewalk.  Even while watching,  many were out

Bikini Bold

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and BEHOLD!  This beauty did it and then some! I cam across this story while browsing and stopped to see what it was all about.  This young lady battled her demons and won!  We all know how cruel others can be when you are not pencil thin.  Jazzymyne Jay spent 20 year’s dealing with the insults the rudenss and such.  She believed she would never be bikini

When Life give you Lemons

In our day and age of weight loss go to’s, many of us have strayed away from the natural things that in my opinion, our bodies are craving. Now most people will avoid lemons but you should take full advantage of the wonderful benefits of this yellow globe of goodness.  Not only beneficial in cooking but your body can benefit from the natural properties as well as your household.  I love the smell of lemon

Steel Heart

My heart longs to love you, My heart longs to care Wrapped in steel wire, a box containing my love beats against walls of flesh surrounded by crimson flow Longing to break free and show the very beat that tells a story of love lost and gained One fatal prick somehow doesn’t end the game a drop for the lies you tell, a drop for the stories you weave to win a heart that continues to

Dressing Romance

I came across what I think is one of the most heartfelt and beautiful love stories for a newlywed couple that I have seen a long time.  You know somehow that love has woven itself between these two human beings as you read this story. Bride and Koesch designer Krésha Bajaj Zaveri went about designing the stunning dress of her dreams after getting engaged to partner Vanraj. If you are a newly engaged couple or

Job Application

 Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”  John 6: 28-29 I was walking to work today and got to thinking about all the steps that I had to go through to get employed over the years.  It was not an easy process.  You go from finding the job, filling out the application and

Women in Black History

Someone who chose to make a difference in the community.  Johnson was a leader during the stand off that culminated in the infamous Stonewall Riots, a rallying cry against police surveillance and harassment of people in New York’s LGBT community during the 1960s. Today, the anniversary of Stonewall is commemorated annually via pride parades held across the U.S. A black transgender activist, Johnson’s efforts also including mentoring and helping to provide housing for homeless LGBT youth,

Feeling Accomplished

How do you feel when you have done something that you did not think you could do? You feel like strutting right?  Be honest, we all do.  I know that reaching a  milestone that in the beginning was just a thought is HUGE and just cannot be ignored.  You want to shout from the rooftop and tell it on a mountain top so everyone knows that you did it! The feeling of accomplishment is a

Wasit not Want not!

Sure the Kardashian’s have touted that waist trainers are the best thing to get that coke bottle figure and help with weight loss!  The fad is ongoing with females (have not seen any men yet) doing their best to squeeze into this boa constrictor of the fashion world. Let me be the first to tell you that a young lady recently won a $5 million lawsuit against a Florida based company called the Waist Gang

Get Right with God

I used to think the way to get right with God was to do like I saw those in the church do. By that I mean knowing the books of the Bible, where to turn in the Bible, which Bible verse to spit out at the right time, going to church every day being in church ALL day; it was almost like it was never ending! I also thought thought that God would hate me

Positive Inspirations

Why do I post positive inspiration? Is it because I need help? Is it because I wish to help someone else or is it just to be on the bandwagon? Well here’s my spin on it. I feel the need for positive inspiration because of the years of negativity that I went through. When you gone through 30 plus years of being degraded, talked about, talk down to, called out your name or anything of

The Original Hip Hop Chef® Chef Tye

The word Chef comes from the French which means, literally, “chief”. It is  the responsibility of a chef to manage the entire food service process. Menu planning, purchase, prep and presentation…. EVERYTHING that comes in and out of the kitchen.

Removing the Mask

You have heard the saying fake it till you make it right?  How many times have you done that just to get by?  What was the result when you finished? The ultimate question is….Do you know how to be just you? Sometimes that “fakeness” adds a layer of something we don’t want in our lives.  Whether it be personal or not, physical or emotional, we all have masks to conceal how we really feel (happy,

Boss Lady, CEO, owner, coordinator, Mogul.  Just a few of the hats worn by Tia Hamilton.  When I first met this wonderful lady, it was a quick phone chat and a car ride to and from and event that would put us on the road to working with each other.  Little did I know that the effects of that meeting would be as far reaching as they are now.  She does not claim to know

Lena Horne

One of my favorites!  Lena made her mark with me when I saw her in The Wiz. After learning more about her and hearing her sing her signature Stormy Weather, I was hooked.  I had the opportunity to imitate her for a musical review when I resided in California.  I will never forget that yellow, form fitting, sequin dress and doing my best to strike that pose!  To me she was a woman who stood
