You know you’re everything you think you are as and when you can break the Internet at any time, without any warning.
Beyonce has already done it once and she just did it again with the announcement that she and her husband, Jay-Z, are expecting two new additions to their family.
I’m particularly excited because there were so many babies conceived in 2016 and one-by-one everyone is making their announcement. It’s such a blessing to add to your family, to create life and I cannot wait for my little one to be born in just eight short weeks! It makes me so happy to see other women who are also carrying life because I know, to a certain extent, how they feel and it makes me even happier in return.
What a time to be alive!
It seems like the older I get, the longer it takes for me to fully get into the Christmas spirit. The world seems to kick off the Christmas holiday immediately after Thanksgiving but I’m usually not into the spirit until the week/week and a half prior to the actual holiday.
Besides the cold weather, hot chocolate and Christmas movies on TV, something that always seems to do the trick is listening to Christmas music. You seriously cannot fail with that.
So if you need a little push to get into the spirit, check out the songs below.
As a creative, I’m always looking to be inspired and luckily for me I don’t have to look far.
There’s never a shortage of inspiring things around me. There’s the sky, whether sunny or grey; there are tangible things like books or films with inspiring storylines but my greatest source of inspiration comes from other people.
The Starz hit show “Power” returned this week with “Call Me James,” the first episode of the highly anticipated third season.
The episode opens with James “Ghost” St. Patrick and Angela Valdes making their debut as a couple at St. Patrick’s nightclub. Ghost seems to be trying really hard to leave his old life behind but I’m not sure if he really wants to do it for himself or if he’s doing it for Angela. I’m also not sure if it’s going to last.
You can watch my full recap below.
Congratulations are in order for the entire “Power” team because it was recently announced that Starz renewed the show for another two seasons after the premiere brought in 2.6 million viewers. That is insane!
