Here we go. .

#1 Honesty
Real men respect an honest woman. In fact, they yearn for one.

In a world full of surface interaction your candidness can be refreshing for him.

#2 Empathy

There are a lot of cases where he doesn't necessarily want to be "right.” He simply wants to be understood. He will never be able to understand in totality what it's like to be…

Losing my grandmother to Breast Cancer was one of the hardest things I've faced in my life. Watching my mother take care of her day end and day out was truly life changing.

SophistiKat "Drink of the Month"

I have been slipping with posting my "Drink of the Month" favorites. We are already close to the end of October but there are still a few Homecomings, HBCU Classics, and of course just other good time/chill events left. I wanted to keep it simple but true to the kick off of Fall and cool weather. Here is a very subtle, smoothy, and tasty Martini that can be plugged in and enjoyed at any event.

The Amber Martini

3 1/2 oz Ciroc Vanilla Vodka
1/2 oz Frangelico
1/2 oz Amaretto
1 or 2 cut and sliced Red Apples

Pour contents into Mixer/Shaker
Shake all ingredients over ice until they are well chilled
Strain into a chilled Martini glass
Garnish each glass with a slice of apple

Voila. .you are ready to sip and chill ;")

The way I was feeling at that moment. .was "Child BYE!!"LoL!!

However I am a sucker for GREAT music. He text the name and album title. .Low and behold. .

It was the debut LP from the oh so Handsome Tristan Wilds aka Mack Wilds!! I have been a fan of the young actor since his days on "The Wire". .90210. .and of course "Red Tails" (Yes Lawd!! That was an outstanding and HANDSOME cast) so I honestly didn't know what to expect from him pursuing music. I remembered seeing the "Own IT" video this summer. .but didn't think to much about it.

Over the past few months there has been a buzz about Tristan taking a break from acting to pursue a career in music.  We hear this A LOT from…
