Out with the Old. .In with ORCHID!!~*

Emerald Green is so last year.

The new must-have color for 2014 is ... drum roll, please ... radiant orchid. And though it may look like plain old purple, radiant orchid is a "captivating, magical, enigmatic purple," according to Pantone, the company that claims global authority on color trends and recently revealed radiant orchid as the color of the year.







Still, to the naked eye, it's a shade of purple.

"While the 2013 color of the year, emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, radiant orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination," says L…

Soul Sunday. .~*

It being the last SUNday in the year I figured why not use a song that would allow each of us to reflect and appreciate the lessons and blessings of this past year. .

The Foreign Exchange is one of my many FAVorite groups. This single "Call It Home" is off their latest album "Love In Flying Colors". I absolutely love the concept of this video and how it relates to the title of the song. We should know that "home" and "love" are found wherever we are. .and with the people we are blessed to share moments in this life with.

White HOTT Chocolate

This months selection I put a twist on one of my late Fall and Winter FAVorites. Now don't get me wrong I LOVE my  Bailey's Hot Chocolate recipe but wanted to try something different. I switched up a few ingredients to come with this Masterpiece!! It will be the perfect addition to your list of FAVorites for your holiday gatherings, book club meetings, or when you simply want to warm up and relax after a long day.





















Ingredients:
1-2 Cups of Milk
1 to 2 Tsp. White Hot Chocolate Mix (I prefer Ghirardelli "Sweet Ground White Chocolate Mix")
0.5 Oz. Bailey's Vanilla Cinnamon Cream Liqueur (equal to 1 shot)
0.5 Tsp. Sugar ( add to your liking)
Ground Cinnamon or Marshmallows (for topping)

Directions:
Heat milk (I prefer to heat my milk on the stove).
Pour in individual cup/cups
Stir in white hot chocolate mix
Add Sugar (if necessary to your liking)
Pour in the shot of cream liquer

Rest In Peace. .Nelson Mandela

Today all across the world we mourn the lost of a revolutionary!! Emerging standing tall after doing  years in prison to go forth and lead his people of South Africa as President, Nelson Mandela was the epitome of a leader of his people and fighting equality/justice across the world.














"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear"~*














"There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."~*











"Let freedom reign. The sun never set on so glorious a human achievement."~*





Knowing that he lived a life of service and accomplished so many great things not for self but the betterment of humanity. .I say "Rest In Peace". .our brave solider

SophistiKAT "Jam"

Now one thing about MY #BFFJill Mar and I, we LOVE music!!  She tagged me in a post with this video earlier today on  Facebook and I am just now getting around to checking it out. She will tell you. .When she said "It's a song by Omarion". .I was like "Oh Lawd!!". At that moment I didn't know what to expect because I've never been a fan of "O". Now don't get me wrong I love some of his songs. Hoooooowever he teamed up with two of my FAVs Pusha T (Clipse) and FABolous (I LOVE this man!!) for "Know You Better"!! Wooooooo. .#LoveIT 
Check it Out. .
Omarion has a HIT!!

SophisitKat's "Throwback JAM"

Chiiiiiiiiild let me tell you!! I love my 90's R&B and if you have been keeping up with my "Jam" post, you know that too. Every week I get a "serenade" or two from a dear friend of mine via Skype ;") and one of the songs he chose to do last week was "Beauty" by Dru Hill. I think just about EVERY woman knows the lyrics to this song and honey KNEW it was about them. LoL!! Anyway it made me go back in my CD cartel and pull out Dru Hill's very first album (which happens to be my FAVorite out of the 4)


Here is the video for one of my FAVorite songs "Never Make a Promise" off the album to throw you back this Thursday. .
