Suicide: Be Here Tomorrow- Logan Paul (Review)/ God’s Grace and Mercy

I didn’t know anything about Logan Paul before the infamous “suicide video” that circulated a couple months ago and the humongous backlash that followed. In the video, the 22 year-old youtuber visited a place called, “suicide forest” at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan. This particular location was given this name “due to its…

I smoked marijuana…

I was recently watching a popular youtuber, Queen Naija’s channel. On this particular vlog, another vlogger, Clarence NYC (very handsome by the way), asked her if she had ever smoked marijuana. She replied she had smoked once but she would never smoke again. She said she was hallucinating and having delusions. She said her friend’s…

Snow Day in the South

“That white, thick, cold, icy stuff on your lawns and vehicles is called…(say it with me)…snnnnooow! It’s snowing! We get it!”    

My sister and I… (Oil and water)

Upon reading my first post, you should know, no subject and no individual is off limits when it comes to my blog. My tagline is “A girl’s story of money, power, and respect…!” I feel most things fall in one of those 3 categories. Today’s category is respect. Let me tell you about my older…

#43 Marcus Williams/(Message to the “Who Dat Nation”)

Imagine this… 10 seconds left in the 4th quarter of a playoff football game, and your team (New Orleans Saints) is up by one point. The opposing team has the ball. The opposing team’s quarterback (Keenum) throws the ball from his 39- yard line. It flies high in the air, a receiver from the opposing…

“I Just Wanna Dance!”/(Inner Me Studios Review)

There is something I have been wanting to do for a while now and I finally did it… I went to a dance class. OMG! Amazing! There is this fabulous dance studio here in Houston, “Inner Me Studios.” I googled this studio a while back when I was interested in taking dance classes, but I…

“Sorry for bothering you…”/ (The shade!)

Have you ever been talking to someone and maybe you didn’t respond the way he/she wanted you to, so suddenly he/she hits you with the, nonchalant “Sorry for bothering you” statement. {This is on my mind because my boyfriend hit me with the “sorry for bothering you” text today when I didn’t respond to his…

H&M/ Let’s talk about it

I must be honest, racism isn’t an easy subject to talk about, but as a “black” individual, it is a subject we MUST discuss! I will spare you the in-depth background regarding this latest incident of racism involving the clothing store, H&M. It is simple! H&M thought it would be a great marketing idea to…

Happy New Year Chanels and Cocktails family. I pray everyone is in good spirits and good health. So, let’s take a moment to take about resolutions…Are we making them this year or nah? In one of my previous posts I stated that one of my New Year’s resolutions/ Life resolutions is to continue to have more communications with my family and loved ones and to visit them more often. I have no problem with this type of resolution. This is normal human behavior and what is expected of a loved one. I think it is the somewhat unrealistic resolutions that give “resolutions” in general a bad name. Here are a few examples… So, you are 300 lbs., your New Year’s resolution is to lose 150 lbs.… Hmmm if this was a true desire or goal, why would an individual wait until January 1st to begin it? 9 times out of 10, it’s probably not going to happen. Sorry but I am being honest. Another person’s resolution may be to clean up his/her credit. How realistic is that? If having good credit was a true desire, it seems this would be something you would have been continuously working towards not something that just began January 1st. The long and short of it all is that typically “resolutions” aren’t successful because these are rush ideas of what you think you should do or how you think you should live based on society’s perceptions of what is acceptable, but they really have nothing to do with your heart or your true desires. I suggest instead of making all these pointless, disappointing resolutions, you should try fine tuning and molding the areas you have already began to work on. But don’t make any promises because if you are anything like me, I self-sabotage because my stubbornness naturally rejects obligations. My suggestion is that you work towards living a better life and being a better you in general for the remainder of your physical life. THE DON’TS: As I stated, don’t make any promises as to prevent any feelings of disappointment or feelings of inadequacy. Got it? You already know what to do and how to do it. Just take your time and focus on those things at your own pace and with no pressure from yourself or others. Yes, you will most likely get off track, but eventually the train comes back around, and you get back on. Just like that!!! It’s that simple!!! Lessons to live by: 1.) “Prepare yourself for the long-distance run” “A long-distance run will leave you sweaty, sore, and deeply satisfied. If you arm yourself with discipline and hard work, you will find that you’re able to push past what you thought you were capable of. However, working your way up to that long run is a challenging process that requires both mental and physical preparation Through careful planning, you will be prepared for this long-distance run.” 2.) Identify your goal, identify a plan, take small steps, and Finish Strong! Finally, 3.) “Live, Laugh, Relax, Eat, Pray, Breath! Try, Fail, Try, Fail, Try, Fail, Try again!
