If These Chairs Could Talk

Many of us work long hours every day. People sit a desk, stand or either a combination of both. No one ever stops to think about the chairs though. They hold our weight, without complaint. Of course, the chair won’t ever talk back. However, the chair often gets to witness us at our lowest points. […]

In Love With The (Vita) CoCo

I am 2 months sober and counting. Yep. Oh, did you think I was talking about alcohol? I meant pre work out drinks. I completed the Daniel Fast earlier this year. The fast (or temporary diet) consists of vegetables, fruit, legumes, grains and that’s about it. The first 3 days kicked my butt, especially because […]

The First Jump Is The Hardest (Go!)

Today marks a very pivotal turn in my life. I started a new job at a new company one year ago today. Oh and it was a completely new industry for me too. The specifics aren’t necessarily important here. However, I turned down an opportunity for advancement in exchange for following my passion. Was I […]

Smino Introduces Us To The Blkswn

Nelly made listeners sit up and take notice to St. Louis branded Hip Hop in 2000. He went on to become one of the greatest selling rappers of all time. However, other than Nelly, there haven’t been any huge Hip Hop stars to emerge from St. Louis since then. Smino, a.k.a Chris Smith, is poised […]

Trey Songz Unleashes The Redundant ‘Tremaine’

  Trey Songz has always been considered as R. Kelly’s musical nephew. At least that’s my take on him. Trey Songz has a lyrical prowess that’s smoother than many of his counterparts. However, the bulk of his catalog contains tales of breakups, makeups, sex, cheating and oh….more sex. His latest album Tremaine¬†doesn’t leave room to […]

Jussie Smollett Pushes The Envelope With ‘F.U.W.’

Empire returns to prime time TV¬†tonight. The show’s fans have been eagerly anticipating the new episode. However, the real buzz is about Jamal’s new single. Wait. This song actually has nothing to do with Jamal. Jussie Smollett steps front and center into the spotlight to reveal a new “artistic expression” as he calls it. The […]

Who Pooped On Your Good Morning?

How much does it cost to say, “Good morning”? What pain does it cause to ask someone, “How is your day”? One of my biggest pet peeves is people who don’t speak. I dislike it so much that I will shame people into speaking. Yep, I said it. I do it all the time. Even […]

Lorde Turns On The Green Light

Lorde shook up the music scene four years ago with her debut album, Pure Heroine. “Royals”, her monster hit single, led that collection of witty numbers that became her brand. Fans started pleading for new material in 2016. Lorde has now come out of the shadows with her audible reply. She has never been one […]

The Sweet Punch Of The Ida Claire Hurricane

All hurricanes are not created equally. The original hurricane drink was crafted in New Orleans. This is one drink where the taste depends on who makes it. Last month I got a chance to try out Ida Claire’s version of this signature drink. Be sure to check out my review of the Pearfect 75 I […]

When Your Roses Smell Like….

Yesterday I was not in the best of moods. Yes, I admit it. Most people think I am always a happy person. This is true. However, I am human and I have my moments. Many of you may remember the OutKast song “Roses“. The chorus says, “I know you like to think your sh!t don’t […]
