The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are defended by Spotify for their business moves which will better us all. #serviceisuniversal

Sirs and Madams:

Let us begin with the obvious: Our Duchess of Sussex is expecting a second child with her beloved husband, Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry. Master Archie is having a sibling, and he will be a big brother. Those are great milestones for any young family. Do you remember when you were first basking in the days of carrying your little bumps? The memories are always wonderful. These memories will be especially wonderful for #familysussex after their miscarriage last summer. As a mom, I know what it is like to carry a baby and then to lose it during those early months.

Following a miscarriage, there is always going to be fear surrounding the next pregnancy. You pray daily for the safe delivery of your (miracle) child. Then, you cherish that little baby daily and thank God for keeping you both safe and healthy through the journey. These next few weeks and months will be especially delicate for Duchess Meghan. Please keep her, Prince Harry, and Master Archie in your prayers.

Next, as well spoke on earlier, Spotify has come out in support of our Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they were criticized for the allegedly high amount of their deal with the music platform company. However, is it really any of our business. This is a business.

At the same token, knowing our Duke and Duchess, they will make the most of their Podcast from Archewell Audio platform and help even the music artist detailed in the article. What is important to note, is that the article cited in this post seems a little angry at the Duke and Duchess beyond their quest for remain service oriented. One can even surmise that the Brits are and will remain for a while achy that America is now the new of of our favorite royal family.

“We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

Fashion Innovator Fights Real Estate Debacle.

Imagine the fashion scandal! You are a bonafide fashion legend and living in a home for decades and then fine yourself in a legal conundrum.

Andre Leon Tally enters the chat. Yes! That Mr. Talley! Anna Wintour’s editorial muse of the Fashion Machine which is Vogue Magazine.

What is Ms. Wintour thinking now?

Well according to the New York Post, there was a “gentleman’s agreement,” between Mr. Talley and the owner of Manolo Blanik. The agreement exploded when in 2020 Mr. Blanik wanted to sell the alleged home of Mr. Talley. The legal fighting began.

The question we have for Mr. Talley is: Why? Why would you believe you are so much of a friend to a person that you would not explore a written legal agreement? Who are Mr. Talley’s real friends if this alleged situation is or has any legal standing?

Good Luck Mr. Talley, your going to need it!

XOXO,

Duke and Duchess of Sussex: Harry Meghan solidify their exit of the Royal Family!

Duke and Duchess of Sussex: Harry Meghan solidify their exit of the Royal Family!

Sirs and Madams:

We cannot say that we have been surprised by the news of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, solidifying their plans to leave the British Royal Family. We were told of this last year. Last year, our good and service filled Duke of Sussex, told us, “their was no other option.” While the Duke wished to remain a member of the royal family. The Duke was tired of the media harassment of his family (namely, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex & baby Archie). Thus, the Duke made the painful decision to leave the royal family.

We can watch this video below and see why our Duchess, was the perfect choice for our (yes! our Duke of Sussex).

We wish the Duke, Duchess, Master Archie, and royal baby bump to be all of the love and happiness in the world. Leave a comment below for us. Until next time, happy reading and be blessed.

Hurrah! Hurrah!

The History of Valentine’s Day

Today is Thursday, February 14, 2019. The day of love all over the world. Most people have been running and will be running many errands today to make sure their beloved is greeted with warm feelings, desires, and sensations of love. On this special day we celebrate the art of love. Today, Valentine’s day is the only day dedicated to the heartbeat of love. 

Valentine’s day has its beginnings due to the Roman festival of Lupercalia. Lupercalia was an ancient festival held yearly on February 15. It was conducted under the eye of a priest called Luperci. This festival of love celebrated the season of Spring. This was especially important for fertility rites, where men and women were gathered, and paired by a system of lottery. Fortunately for us, the festival of Lupercalia was changed to St. Valentine’s Day. This was the day of romance that we observe and celebrate, since the 14th century. 

Happy Valentine’s Day Lovers♥

Honestly Ma’am

Today’s post is a little different. As I embark on this new journey as a doctoral student, I am excited to where it ends: Doctor of Education degree. I am working and enrolled in graduated school, pursuing my Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership with emphasis in K-12 education. At the same time, I just recently experienced the most honest conversation with a loved one. It really pained me to say the truth to them. However, I was emotionally exhausted. I believe I have held in my truth for so long that my emotions have been shut down.

I can not believe I waited so long to finally say, finally what my TRUTH WAS!! I poured out my feelings and my only response from this family member was, “Thanks for your honesty.” When someone consistently hurts your feelings, and you pour out your heart, and this is their response, it’s not you (that has the problem), it’s them. I know know that I am not the crazy person. I am growing and trying to better myself as an adult. I wish everyone will see their path to an healthy adulting journey.

On the other side, I am finishing the first class in my doctoral journey and I am excited and scared at the same time. Never fear! The journey Ma’am is all worth it. Have you ever experienced a tough conversation? How did you handle it?

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY BLOG 2/21/18

Screen Shot 2018-02-11 at 12.59.15 PMI am in the 3rd day of the week after a long Mardi Gras week off and two days trying to get over a viral infection. I do not feel as if I had enough time to get better. Between taking care of my son, who has autism and is under me 24/7, to the demands of being a wife and house cleaner, I am exhausted. I am investing the time into taking naps when I get off of work, maintaining my blog and just trying to keep my head on straight. I was late for work this week, two days in a row 😦

Normally, I have my stuff together, but the last few weeks have been a little rough. So, what do I do?

1. Pray for release of the pressure.
2. Communicate my needs to my spouse.
3. Rely on him more to navigate the chores, I am too exhausted to take up.
4. Keep my son, Lambchop on his schedule, to relieve the pressure off of me.
5. Remind myself that it’s going to be ok.
6. Take naps daily.
7. Go to bed early.
8. Do not stress over things I cannot control.
9. Pray more.
10. Relax, Relate, Release.

Happy Wellness Wednesday,
XOXO

How do we maintain a thick skin while navigating the world of social media?

  • I was prompted to read a post called: I quit social media for a week and it didn’t change my life., in one of my blogger support groups, (Black Bloggers United) on Facebook.
  • Please read the article for yourself. It’s a cool read. This reading led me to pose this question: how do we maintain a thick skin while navigating the world of social media?
  • Many bloggers, social media entrepreneurs and folks in general, struggle in this arena. How can you maintain a separate space for emotional sanity when all around you are people perpetuating a perfect life scenario?
  • The answer is you must have a strong core. Otherwise, everything this we see will leave us miserable. We are in different categories of life and thus our standing in life leaves us fully or partially fulfilled.
  • How do you build a strong Core? Find what inspires your spirit the most and dive into that area.
  • Additionally, find what is inspiring and bask in that aspect on social media.
  • There are times where I too, venture into a little ratchet television, social media postings and gossip blog sites, for kicks and giggles.
  • Some people who are fulfilled in life look for inspiration and social media is not always the fix for this.

Author, Jasmine Lamb, explored three areas where her life did change when she unplugged:

1. I read more—I buy new books as much as I try new lipstick, so, a lot. I finally got around to making a dent in some pretty crucial reads. Instead of stopping to take mental work breaks to scroll through my various timelines, I picked up a book instead.

2. I doubted myself less—Let’s face it, comparison is a total killjoy. Every time I felt I had made significant progress in my entrepreneurial journey, I’d stop to scroll through Instagram and immediately felt I was back at square one. Quitting Instagram allowed me to be more present in the everyday wins and look at my experiences as a continuous story that’s just as unique and valuable as anyone else’s.

3. My focus shifted—Not only was I more present, but I started to think of new ways to be creative in my “in-between” time, whether it was brainstorming new ideas to reach my business goals, choosing to meditate and re-affirm the day’s intentions, or having more real-time conversations with people I value in real life.

So, the question is, how do YOU maintain a thick skin navigating the world of social media?

Matt Lauer fired!!!!!

Listen family,

  • Gone are the days where it was just a boys will be boys situation in the arena of sexual harassment.
  • The hammer is coming down hard and swift for these men who have, possibly for years, (in some cases), treated men and women like physical ping pons for their perverted pleasures.
  • Matt Lauer is the latest in a long line of men who have been fired because, allegedly, they could not keep their mouth close and hands in their pockets.
  • We are still awaiting the exact details of the situation, but ABC Executive Andy Lack, let the hammer fall fast on Lauer.
  • Off with their heads!!!!!

And the Grammy nominations are???????

  • Since the beginning of the Grammy Awards, African American musicians have had to claw their way into sustainable recognition.
  • There is an old saying we were taught and Olivia Pope hears it from her father on Scandal all of the time, “We have to be ten times better, ten times faster, to get ahead.”
  • Unfortunately, race does play a role in how people see themselves over others. Let’s clear that part of the table right away. Some people are taught this tragic way of thinking from childhood and it shifts their adult focus into how they see people who do not have the same shade as theirs.
  • This form of racism was been in the grammy awards stratosphere for as long as the awards themselves have been given out.

  • This year, with the voting delegates becoming more inclusive, that dream is a seeable reality.
  • After Beyonce’ was shut out last year, the Grammys learned a valuable lesson, the beyhive stings back.
  • Social media campaigns were energized against the Grammys due to their exclusion of artist in rhythm and blues, rap and hip hop categories for artist in categories whose music never made it to radio, or the music was released more than a year prior.
  • Shucks, Adele even said Beyonce’ was better than her album that won last year.

Fragrances routinely waft in and out of Vogue’s Beauty department, but when it comes to the subtle leathery scent of Le Labo’s cult Santal 26—no matter what deadlines are looming or phones are ringing—even the most discerning of noses perk up. So imagine the delight when the label’s new home diffuser, which emits a steady stop-you-in-your-tracks-it-smells-so-good stream of the cult eau, arrived at the office.

Made from Northeast maple wood, a type of marked-up golden brown lumber that is often cast aside for bonfires, the one-of-a-kind scent-spreader transforms the rich fragrance oil, by way of a built-in nebulizer, into a fine mist. But, of course, it doesn’t stop there: Each handmade showpiece also comes equipped with a vintage lightbulb that, with a twist of a silver knob, simultaneously lets off a warm amber glow. A simple desk lamp that doubles as a luxurious perfume? Now that’s a gift too good to give.

Transitioning from Extensions to Natural Haircare? The struggle :)

The struggle of the 6-8 week relaxer treatments for women of color is an ongoing struggle. I love my straight edges. However, I do not like the chemical burns, relaxer smell and the new growth. I have been wearing extensions, since August. I love them but hate the price. I took them out last night. I do not like the inability to take them out and wash my hair thoroughly on a weekly basis.

img_2460

PAST PHOTOS WITH MYSELF IN WIGS OR EXTENSIONS 🙂

I am trying to figure out the next wave. Do I go back to the wigs and extensions, or do I take the jump to wearing my natural hair. Decisions!!!!!!!

Please check out some pictures of my past looks with my hair choices. Let me know what you think. I love the flexibility of wearing wigs and extensions. A woman always has a choice to change things up.

XOXO,

Where am I getting my inspiration from?

To begin this season of Super Soul Sessions off on the correcting footing, I was in need of constant spiritual feeding. Blogging is a spectators sport. You begin a blog and for me, I always want to remain authentic. So, no my numbers are not astronomical but I am pressing my way authentically me.

A girlfriend of my began posting screen shots of this novel Jesus Calling, on Amazon. I decided after reading the posting that I would make a purchase. I have some Audible.com credits for audio books and decided to give this novel a try. I am happy I did. It gives you reading daily. Try it out and see for yourself. The book has various prices depending where you purchase it from but on Amazon.

Happy Sailing ♥♥♥♥♥♥

Life is a River constantly moving. 

 

 

What does that even mean? Your life is a River. Whether we make a difference in our lives or not, our lives are not stopping and waiting for our choices. It keeps moving. The key to a moving river is making sure you have resources to ride the waves. If you do not have the resources, how do you get them? Ask for them. You can work to earn them.

I will never forget my freshman year of college. Louisiana Tech University, in Ruston, Louisiana. The hardest, exciting and motivating four years of my life. I had a church scholarship and student loans. I needed more money for books. I called home to my mother. I told her I needed money for books. She said, “I didn’t tell you to go to college. You decided to got to college, so you figure it out.” I got a job working at Chick Fila, in the student union. The following year, I was a resident assistant.

That conversation would have defeated a weaker person. It made me stronger. I wrote her a letter telling her I needed to end our conversations going further, so I can become successful in college. I got a job on campus. I keep moving with my River.
I still think of that moment sometimes. I feel numb to it now twenty years later. However, I am proud of myself for not giving up. I found my life vest and keep sailing ⛵️down my river of life. Always remember that Life is a River, constantly moving and the key to moving with the river is the resources and skills to develop to learn to sail along with it.

Happy Sailing ⛵️

Are you living your best life today?

♥♥♥The Atlanta Falcons have taught us one thing. If you do not continue the leads you have in life, by making them better the end is never certain. As bloggers it is our challenge to give our readers content they can sink their teeth into. However, what happens to we, the bloggers, when our gains drop off. Keep living and moving.

Motivational Monday and Super Soul Sunday were keys I used to assist me in getting back on the blogging horse.I had a recent death in my family, my mother in law, and I needed a break. My mother in law had a horrible way to go: Alzheimer’s and Dementia. I pray you all never witness a family member pass away from the combination of these two at the same time. It pained me so much to go to my in laws home and see my mother in law suffering.

Since she had a husband, and children; was it my place to voice any concerns, I may have had about her care, eating, doctor visits, etc? No. I could only express to my husband to go see his mother and make sure she was being cared for. She was young and vibrant. She was an amazing woman, wife, mother and human being. Over one hundred people were in attendance at her Mass and funeral.

I had the pleasure of speaking at the service and that was the least I could do. It was a beautiful service. The priest told me I did a great job. ♥♥♥

Are you living your best life today? If not,  write a note in your planners (yes, buy yourself a planner to stay organized), and make goals and objectives you can maintain. Life is not certain. We do not know the time and date of our transitions. However, we can make goals and objective to live our best lives, so we can have the words spoken at our funerals fit our true character.

Be blessed and live your best life today♦♦

Johnny Depp has a fashion goldmine of a home and he’s putting it up for sale…it can be yours for 12.7 million.

Inside Johnny Depp’s LA apartment covers an artist’s dream palace. It is no on the real estate market for 12.7 million dollars. After the unfortunate divorce from his recent wife, we can understand if Mr. Depp wishes to move on. Hey! He can afford it. The talking point of the home could very well be the mural by Brazilian Artists: OSGEMEOS. The home is located in the old downtown area of Los Angeles. The building was designed by Claude Beelman. 

Birth of A Nation

A must see film!

Is there controversy? Yes! However, you must leave it all at the front door of the movie house and go watch the film. The Original Birth of a Nation was a milky propaganda version of this film.

There is no comparison, between these two films. They are polar opposites. Believe Me!!!!!

Bravo! Nate! Job well done!
