Sunday Funday!



Dear reader, I recently bought a new pair of shoes, I decided to buy these particular pair of shoes because I have an older pair just like them. My older pair  has completely lost its appeal due to them consistently facing harsh weather conditions and basic wear and tear. I decided to take a more proactive approach this time making sure that my new pair of shoes would last longer under the same conditions and possibly have more of a fighting chance since I’m always on the go. For all of you wondering which shoe it was that I purchased ,I got a new pair of White Converse’s from NORDSTROM for a grand total of  $48.21. Also it has been very long since I have purchased a pair of converses that I failed to realize how big in size the shoe actually ran I went down two whole shoe sizes so that they could fit properly on my feet I was baffled to say the least. Rust-Oleum-NeverWet-packI came across this supposedly “miracle” spray Rust-Oleum® NeverWet® a multi-surface liquid repelling treatment that creates a super hydrophobic surface which prevents water, mud and ice from sticking to the surface(s) you apply the treatment to. Rust-Oleum® NeverWet® is a two-step product system designed to create a moisture repelling barrier on a variety of surfaces.

Motivational Monday

Colbie Caillat – Try

I’ve always liked Colbie Caillat and her music; The message each song sends rather it be empowering someone or embracing love. Colbie Caillat is a gem when it comes to writing music. So it was quite easy for me to make her latest hit “Try” the  subject for this weeks “Motivational Monday”. I really enjoyed how I just fell upon this track by Miss Caillat because it reminded me why it is important to do things that make you happy and not to do those things for the sake of anyone else.

Also to note I am really enjoying the way artist today are using the average person to depict their messages in music videos. Kudos not only to Miss Caillat but to numerous other artist who have taken this route and whose songs send such a huge message, encouraging love, promoting natural beauty, independency and many other things. To shine light on one of those additional artist, John Legend with his latest hit and new personal favorite “You & I” (Nobody In The World).

I hope you enjoy this music video by the lovely Colbie Caillat and I hope it helps jumpstart your lovely Monday!

Who Runs the World? “WCW”


“In a world of divas and superstars, there is only one Beyoncé.” – Usher

Hello readers,
I think without question this week’s WCW (Wealthy Crush Wednesday) should pay homage to none other than Beyoncé Knowles AKA “Queen B”!
Beyoncé has not only placed # 1 on Forbes celebrity 100 list this year, but  she was recently crowned the most awarded and nominated artist at the BET Awards. I hope I am not alone in describing Mrs. Carter as a woman with not only grace, strength, and sex appeal but as a woman with a plan. She has built herself an empire surrounded by music, dance, fashion, film and also by becoming the President and CEO of her company Parkwood Entertainment. Beyoncé has continued to thrive and stay the Queen all while taking a break to build a family then coming back and surprising the entire world with an no marketed album, world tour, and kicking the summer off with one of the biggest concerts in the world “On the Run” with her hubby none other than Jay Z AKA  “HOV”.
But talent aside Beyoncé’s philanthropy this year has shown how a public figure like herself can actually make a positive impact in the world. She donated $500,000 to the Chime For Change campaign in which she co-founds. CHIME FOR CHANGE is a global campaign to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world.
Beyoncé exudes the definition of the late Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman” and she in my opinion is an amazing role model to not only young girls, and woman; But to all African Americans who are, and eventually will step forth into the world. She translates success into something all of us can grasp by showing that work ethic, drive, and passion will eventually pay off!
There may only be one Beyoncé but we have the same hours in a day as her, let’s not waste them!
