The Black Album is a classic and one of my favorite albums by Mr. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. With his new Men’s fragrance the mogul has gone from black to #Gold and now he’s going green. Recently, Jay-Z announced that he & B are adopting a #Vegan “plant based” eating regimen to improve on their spiritual and physical well being until Dec. 25th, in commemoration of his 44th Birthday. I hope they are successful in their efforts. Speaking from experience -4 days in - it is different yet rewarding. I’m praying for you.

Happy Birthday Mr. Carter I pray God bless and keep you and your family, have a wonderful year!
I have been on a buying music boycott for a minute now but I wanted something new to listen to because let’s just be honest everything is starting to sound the same. So I got up early to brave the Black Friday crowds -of which there were none thank goodness- searching in the store for something, anything to break the monotany of hoes, hype and twerking. My goal was to take home one or two artist I had not heard before. Our Version of Events is one of my Black Friday finds. The artist is Emeli Sande’ and I really like her voice and her sound. “Hope”, “Next To Me”, “Mountains”, “Maybe”, “Wonder”, and “River” are some of my favs but begining to end her debut album has been a breathe of fresh air.
So, last night I went to my first Cardio Kick boxing class -I almost died- it was challenging and I had a lot of fun. The instructor was great and every one in the class were really supportive. I thought I would hide in the back of the room but if there was one thing there was plenty of, it was room. I didn’t mind because I usually exercise at home so I prefer a small group setting.
About 30 minutes in, I caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror. Yes, I was panting heavily and profusely sweating which I expected b/c I could have sworn I saw the light and unbeknownst to me, I wasn’t the only one. You see, in addition to the obvious signs that I was experiencing a great workout, apparently I get aroused when I exercise b/c to my surprise my “high beams” were on - oopsie! "Don’t look like that. I’m shinning." Now that I think about it, I may have caught a couple of side glances but I thought they were just making sure I didn’t need CPR.
I am laughing now but I was embarassed and mortified when I realized it. I went ahead and finished the routine. What else was I suppose to do? Any woman will tell you these things sometimes have a mind of thier own. If it’s any concilation, I would have apologized if I offended anyone. Nevertheless I enjoyed myself. In fact, I have made a commitment - to self - to turn up my work outs for the next 30 days, so I am going to do a wardrobe change and I’m going back.
