When I think about you, One word is never enough. To describe the feel of your hard working hands, Yet your gentle caressing touch. Just feeling on me, You take your time, no need to […]

Trump’s Tax Returns: Is This a Reality TV Show?

taxes-is-that-spanishSo,  I know I cannot be the only person in the world that literally feels that our American news is like a political realty show. Every time I pull up a news article or some sort of news media, the first thing I think is, “DAMN, is this truly what American politics has come to? This is truly reality TV at its finest.”

Music Monday’s Artist of the moment: Nessa Preppy- Majah

 

Dis ah different kind ah vyb!” That it is. This gyal right here definitely is bringing a different kind of vibe to the world of music. Introducing, Nessa Preppy.

Vanessa John aka Nessa Preppy, is from the beautiful island of Trinidad. It really sparked my interest to find out that she was actually born in Germany. Her father is German and her mother is Trini. Sometimes we forget how diverse the world is because we’re so use to stereotypes.

Music Appreciateion: Riddims

 

So if you read my About Moi section
(Under the menu tab), you’ll notice I’m a Yanksta.
So it only makes sense that I enjoy Reggae to some degree.
Even though I’m a music junkie and love all genres of music, there’s something I truly enjoy about my era of Reggae & Dancehall, and that was the Riddims. Yes, the Riddims.

If you’re not familiar with the Reggae-Dancehall culture or Soca & Calypso culture, then maybe the term “Riddim” is new to you. Riddim, translated into English is “Rhythm”. Basically, it’s an instrumental.

Now the reason I have a high respect for the Caribbean music scene,
is how you can really see an artist creativity on a track.
One Riddim, 10 artist, 10 different sounds.

Image result for free funny emojis shockOK, so I know I wasn’t the only person in the world whose facial expression was like this emoji when this picture below of Spice was presented. I think anyone who seen this picture, felt the same way I did:

“NO!”
“This has got to be a joke.”
“NOT SPICE!”
“This is a publicity stunt.” 

I think all of us had a million in one questions when Spice dropped her picture on Instagram of herself as a white women.

Freedom (Going Natural)

Love_this1

Freedom… It’s hard growing up in a world where people judge you by looks and stereotype you. A world where beauty is depicted by covers of magazines. Living in a world of materialism and society having an expectation of you being somebody OTHER than yourself; which kills the essence of being an individual. Everybody was made differently, and that’s why LOVING yourself as you are is BEAUTIFUL. That’s freedom! Freedom of loving myself as I am and not having to conform to society’s definition of “beautiful”.
