Fashion forward visuals, a groundbreaking collaboration “Friends” ft Eric B & Rakim and one of MTV’s most nominated videos “Real Love” directed by David Fincher – the concept of “Larger Than Life” was the mindset of going big for your dreams – make it memorable – make it big! Some of my favorite non singles are “Something New” “For Loves Sake” “Once You Leave” .. proud of the entire album! Loved the tour as well, despite efforts behind the scenes to undermine and sabotage it – saving that for my memoir.
Happy Anniversary and here’s to always making life memorable, having a vision for yourself, making goals and exceeding expectations.
There are so many outstanding women in business celebrated today from around the world by the Global Trade Chamber, it was an honor to be amongst them.
“Women are often the first to be marginalized, demeaned, paid less, disrespected, uncredited ..but we make it happen regardless and I’m thankful to God, the universe and all positive forces that keep me motived, with tenacity, enthusiasm for all of it… Let’s all continue to be beacons of light – inspiring others, being fearless and overcoming any obstacles we may face..” – Jody Watley

Happy Sunday – saw these beautiful green hydrangeas couldn’t resist, they compliment my ‘Sanctuary’ luxury soy candle (a best seller on my online shop) perfectly today! Two of my indulgences are definitely flowers and candles.. ok three – add a good quality cup hot coffee or tea.
I learned the hydrangea represents gratitude, grace and beauty. It also radiates abundance because of the lavish number of flowers and the generous round shape. Its colours symbolise love, harmony and peace…sounds good to me! Sunday blessings to all.
