GOD didn’t leave me and HE kept me here to share

Repeat After Me!

REPEAT AFTER ME: Today is my day!  I will keep looking forward and looking up! I am blessed and highly favored. I WILL NOT let negativity occupy one ounce of my life. I AM secure I AM sane and full of joy! I am moving forward! I declare this day to be a day of awesome opportunities that will outweigh any and every obstacle that may try to hinder my purpose.  I am walking in


What is the Deal with DV?

Have you ever wondered what the stats were for Intimate Partner Violence?  How do you feel when you see the numbers but never hear anything about the situation?  This is the purpose of 50 Shades of Blue 2016.  We need to bring a voice to this silent epidemic and give it the audience it needs so that the victims don’t go unnoticed!  Just take a look!     Men, women, children, families and more are


The 2nd Annual 50 Shades of Blue

I wanted to share the write up that was in The RepYoGrind Blog and Urban Image Magazine.  I want you the reader to understand why I do this.  You may ask what is the point or why domestic violence.  I will answer that not only in this article but in telling you that this has been a silent epidemic for way too long.  It needs a voice, a face, and a goal! What is 50


Water Infusion

I have talked about water before but I want to talk about it again!  The benefit of water plain outweigh everything else you could possibly come up with! Many say they don’t like the taste of water.  First of all, water has no taste, unless you are tasting the pipes in your home or office.  Second, you are made up of water so you can’t hate yourself right? Try infusing your water!  I have found


Faith equals Trust

I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help?  My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth.  Psalm 121:1-2 I was asked by my 16 year old son to help him with a bit of homework. Usually when a parent hears that nowadays we envision fractions, negatives and pluses and calculus!  But I digress, this was not the case.  He wanted me to help him deal with learning


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


Bronx Blowout!

Day Two of the Women of Hip Hop in just one word……………………….Flavor-full! Food by The Original Hip Hop Chef® Chef Tye……Slap yo’ Momma good! We stepped into the halls of the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse, Bronx New York.  Under construction, imagine walking into a huge foyer, original floors still intact.  Your voice echoes the hallways as you enter the main room where you see bright concrete and you are greeted by a beautiful ice sculpture


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


Undo Bantu!

You have heard of Bantu knots right?  The method of Bantu knots, often used by black women to add curl definition, and Bantu knots are a hairstyle that dates centuries back to the Zulu tribes in African American culture and today among natural hair fashionistas, this is a go to hair style that is easy, offers lots of curls and is considered a protective hairstyle when transitioning or not wanting to heat or chemicals in your


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
