Are Sparks Flying?

sa

You know how you act when you get some really good news that just makes your soul smile, even though it has nothing to do with you? That is me right now! Even though you all might think I’m crazy, that’s irrelevant because I’m still happy. Did anyone else not know that Tyrese Gibson and Sanaa Lathan used to be a thing? I know, I know, I’m late but it looks like things are getting back where they used to be with them.

Tyrese just posted a video and a picture suggesting that there may definitely be something going on between him and the lovely Sanaa. I am too excited about this because I’ve been saying for the longest time that someone needs to go ahead and snatch Tyrese up before I meet him! Who seconds that motion?

Now, I was always the person who wanted him and Taraji to be together but I was disappointed when I later found out that they are more like brother and sister. So after having to give up that dream, I didn’t think I would really care for anyone else to be with him until now!

Tyrese and Sanaa are really making my night right now!

Stay tuned.

Won’t He Do It!

God shows up on his time, all the time and just in time to make your enemies your foot stools, am I right? Today’s testimony is from the lovely story of Tamar Braxton. I know everyone saw and had so much to say about her getting fired from the talk show “The Real” correct? Miserable people even went to the extent as to try and find out the “real” reason that she was let go. Well, God showed up and I am happy to announce the Tamar Braxton will be airing on her own talk show, hosted by Steve Harvey!

Now, that is how God works! I bet people don’t have much to say now. Everyone who thought it was so funny and interesting that she got fired, again like these aren’t people’s real lives and real feelings we are dealing with now looks stupid. I am more than estatic for her and I can’t wait for her to continue to thrive despite the hate.

I personally don’t know too too much about Tamar and her family or life but she seems like a down to earth person. Now, who is going to be tuning into her new show? I encourage everyone to give it a chance, especially if she was the more relatable one for you on the Real.

Congratulations again to Tamar!

 

 

Redefining The Term: Natural Beauty?

unnamed (10)

Alicia Keyssssssssss is back in the spotlight with her recent decision to redefine the words, Natural Beauty. Alicia Keys discussed in a recent interview that she is tired of the consistent pressure on women to fit a certain description in order to be considered, “beautiful” or “appealing”. She has decided to stop wearing  and really embrace her natural beauty! How do we feel about this?

I more than agree with her feelings that came as a result of her soul searching and meditation, right before she started on her new album. I have faced criticism and have had issues with low self esteem because of what is shoved down our throats in the media and it is really sad. What’s your story?

unnamed (9)

It is a wonderful thing when celebrities make statements such as this one. Anyone encouraging people to embrace who they truly are without any alterations is bringing us all back to reality. Unless you want to walk around with a permanent mask on 24/7 (which is exactly what plastic surgery is) then you should be comfortable to just be you.

 

In such a shaming and judgemental society that we live in I am absolutely supportive of this motion. Who else is on the bandwagon??

More power to you Alicia and I hope we can talk on a more personal level when my memoir is done!

Atlanta PAY ATTENTION!!!!

Queen U is coming to your city and Ms. Julia came to slay!

Her intention is not to slay only in fashion as she does in the pic below; nope, her purpose is greater and BIGGER than fashion, she came to FREE YOUR MINDS!

So who is this innovative powerhouse diva that dares to get ya’ll in formation?

Her name is  Ms. Julia Sewell.

She is the Chairwoman and CEO of Sewell Speaks LLC, a company specializing in the arts of motivation, training and the development of individuals with whom she comes in contact with ,she is also the Founder of Queen U!

Ms. Sewell has spoken at more than 200 conferences and events and has worked with various prominent entities state-wide such as, St.Paul and New York public school districts, Minneapolis Park Board, BET, America’s Promise Alliance, City Year, Special Olympics, and Youth Leaders International, just to name a few. Her most recent feat was the launching of the Queen U initiative with her vision being the complete and world changing evolving of women globally. When asked what was the difference between Queen U and other women’s empowerment organizations she responded with this,  “Queen U will revolutionize the world, because we are empowering women to be their highest selves by first modeling it in our lives. I strongly believe that when you empower the women, you empower the man, you empower the child, thus a nation rises.”

Queen U is the brain child of Ms. Sewell and was formed with the vision of empowering, teaching and helping women around the world to find their happiness and life success by reaching into themselves and utilizing the talents and gifts that they possess to truly maximize their best potential, not only for themselves but also so that their contributions to the world would ultimately assist in making it a “better” place, “Queen U will be that aid to guide us in elevating our nation by gathering queens with the purpose of unification and manifestation of our best selves. When we are at our best, we have more to offer around us” Sewell said.

Earlier this year, Ms. Sewell advertised with the online blogging site The Shaderoom for an Ambassador search to progress her initiative. Since then, Queen U is able to boast 33 women ambassadors worldwide with the intent to double that within the next few months.

In a series of monthly conferences scheduled for each calendar month this year around the world, Queen U’s conference is scheduled for July 16th this month in Atlanta. Queen ambassador Jaya Cain, alongside Queen U founder Julia Sewell, will host a women’s empowerment conference under the theme “Knowledge of Self”. This workshop styled conference will engage participants in a series of self analysis activities that aim to teach women how to positively, cognitively and smartly assess their life’s choices to discover whether or not they are living their best lives.Women are expected to walk away with a  wealth of new found networks, a sense of empowerment and a new drive to maximize the best that life has to offer to them and to embody that “can do” attitude.

What’s the first image that comes to your mind when you think of Justin Bieber’s appearance? Is it blonde hair, black hair, blue hair, a haircut, dreads, or what? There was always a lot of controversy over how he wore his hair, especially when he didn’t seem to have a specific hair style. Many people thought he was going through something, what did you think?

Latest-Mothers-Day-Facebook-Photos

On this day, for people who have lost their mother’s or grandmother’s who played the motherly role in their life I want you all to remember this quote by Dr. Seuss.

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

-Dr. Seuss

I know this quote hits home for me, being the 9th year that my grandmother isn’t here with me. However, I find comfort in knowing that my goal on earth is to make my mother and my grandmother proud and I will not stop until I fulfill that. Today think of all the people who ever told you, “no” or gave up on you and your mom was there to pick you up.

Think of the distasteful or disrespectful things that you might have done towards your mom and remember how she still embraced you each and every time because she never ceases to see the good in you. I believe mother’s are the rocks, they are the full circle, without them and without women in general there would not be a human race. Today I encourage you to tell your mother’s: “Dear mama, you are appreciated.”, and then show it each and every day in each and every way!
