True R&B Diva

I tune in Faithfully and I am so glad things are working out for Faith Evans.  She has had some ups and downs in her life but always seems to land on her feet.  Her latest song and video have truly touched my heart.  If you love that old school, soulful, melodic love song then you will love this..

Any relationship ever made you cry Tears of Joy??!!!  Check out Faith's latest song below.

What color says about you?

Have you ever wondered what color says about you?  See below and let me know if your favorite color truly defines you.  
I don't really have a favorite color - I wear and love them all but I found this to be interesting to help me decide what color to wear in particular situations.



  • If your favorite color is red, you are action oriented with a deep need for physical fulfillment and to experience life through the five senses.
  • If orange is your favorite color, you have a great need to be with people, to socialize with them, and be accepted and respected as part of a group. You also have a need for challenges in your life, whether it is physical or social challenges.
  • Choosing yellow as your favorite means you have a deep need for logical order in your everyday life and to be able to express your individuality by using your logical mind to inspire and create new ideas.
  • If green is your favorite, you have a deep need to belong, to love and be loved, and to feel safe and secure. You need acceptance and acknowledgment for the everyday things you do for others - just a 'thank you' is sufficient.
  • Lovers of blue have a deep need to find inner peace and truth, to live their life according to their ideals and beliefs without having to change their inflexible viewpoint of life to satisfy others. 
  • Indigo lovers have a need to feel in harmony and at one with the Universe and to be accepted by others as the aware and intuitive spiritual beings that they are.
  • If purple or violet is your favorite color, you have a deep need for emotional security and to create order and perfection in all areas of your life, including your spiritual life. You also have a deep need to initiate and participate in humanitarian projects, helping others in need.
  • If your personality color is pink you have a deep need to be accepted and loved unconditionally.
  • If turquoise is your favorite color your deepest need is to create emotional balance in your life, to be able to express your hopes and dreams no matter how idealistic they may be and to make your own way in the world under your own terms.
  • If your favorite color is magenta, you are a non-conformist who sees life from a different point of view.
  • Lovers of brown have a deep need for a safe, secure, simple and comfortable existence with supportive family and friends.
  • Lovers of black have a need for power and control in order to protect their own emotional insecurities.
  • If white is your personality color, your deepest need is for simplicity in your own life and to be independent and self-reliant so you do not need to depend on anyone else.
  • With gray as your favorite color, you are the middle of the road type, cool, conserved, composed and reliable. You tend to conform just to keep the peace.
  • If silver is your favorite, you are intuitive and insightful and have a strong connection with a higher spiritual guidance.
  • With a personality color gold, you radiate charisma, personality and individuality, making others feel relaxed and valued in your company.

    Tragedy to Triumph






    I've always been a Brandy fan but more importantly I just like seeing people succeed.  She has dealt with a lot of things publicly - a planned fake marriage, the birth of her daughter, fatal car accident, removing her mother as manager, type cast actress, dealing with the death of her mentor but she is rising and her star is shining brightly.  I am loving her new album and her stylist/publicist needs to be applauded because she has been UPGRADED!! Without you is my favorite song on the album.  

    Listen here --------> Without You by Brandy



    Are you a Brandy fan??

    That's that ish I don't like...

    Love these tags on YouTube and thought I should do it too.


    This is that ish I don't like...

    1) when someone is quiet through the commercials of a show but all of a sudden has a lot to say once the show comes back on... REALLY???!!!

    2) when it takes someone five million years to make a right hand turn or to merge into a lane!!!

    3) when there is jelly in the peanut butter - ummm can we use two different knives please???

    4) when someone asks you a question they already know the answer to.

    5) when people take credit for things they don't do or come up with.

    6) when I go in the store for one thing and come out with 20!

    7) when people are arguing in the comments of instagram - I mean really???!!!

    8) when people claim to not know something when they can simply use google or bing!  The internet is our friend!!!

    9) when people always have excuses - just hush and DO IT!

    10) when don't know the difference between "to" "too" & "their" "there"  - ENGLISH 101



    what annoys the ish out of you :)

    Nothing worse that a "pretty" cake that tastes NASTY!!!

    I'm just saying!!!

    The wedding cake is usually the focal point of the reception.  I have seen the cake have its own spot light!!!  The cake is what people are looking for and looking forward to tasting.  Some couples even give the cake away as the favor.  So with that said... I feel there is nothing worse than having a beautiful cake with different levels, designs, flowers, etc and the cake is dry, bland and just plain NASTY.

    The cake tasting is very important to me because I love cake!!!  These cakes are pretty and hopefully they are pretty tasty too :)





     After posting these pics.  I'm noticing some similarities!! 
     Can you see them???

    Sunday Inspiration Breakthrough


    I was having a difficult time... Going through a difficult moment...

    But I believe God always finds a way to speak to us.

    I looked up and saw the sun breaking through the clouds.

    Yes Lord the pain and difficulty are necessary but they are temporary.

    My breakthrough is coming because you keep on blessing me!

    Be encouraged!!

    Wedding dress ready...

    I've been drinking smoothies and making better eating choices to not only become a healthier person but lets face it to get WEDDING DRESS READY!!!  This day will be not stop photographs that will last a lifetime and I want to look my best for my honey and myself!!!

    I have been frequenting the gym every other day committing to at least two hours.  I now understand how people can say the gym is addictive.  Once you start making better choices you no longer crave or desire the things you once ate.

    I refuse to starve/deprive myself because MODERATION is key!!!

    Any suggestions and recommendations are greatly appreciated


    Redbook Mag has a wedding dress challenge - that I thought was really cute.  Check it out here!!
