“1 LIFE”

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

1 life

Today I met 3 amazing young men(Jamal Williams, Terrence Shivers, & Quinten Williams), that’s out here trying to better themselves, not be in the street or behind bars. They drove from Atlanta just to met me and when i say i felt so honored and blessed just to be in their presence, I know more than they were to be in mines. One of the young men just gave his life to christ sunday and when he told me, chills just went all through me because you don’t often here of 20 and 21 yr old young men doing that these days. What really stood out to me the most was they quit their jobs and move from Cleveland, Ohio to Atlanta, Ga on HOPE, A DREAM & FAITH!! I was so in shocked but it touched my heart to see them be so excited and in tune with who they were and what they want. I can’t express enough of how they love music and most of their own. When you REALLY love what you do, you will sacrifice, do without, and move in a way that no one would ever understand but it’s really not meant to be understood by everyone. These young men out here putting in work, getting scammed by people, etc but they refuse to give up. I asked “Why go so hard for this music that you putting out?” They told me “Well if you don’t believe in yourself or what you do, who will!” I couldn’t have said it better myself. “1 life” has so many meanings that I could go on and on about, but the name actually speaks volumes for itself. You only get “1” so you better make the best of the one you have, cuz when this one is over you can’t get a repeat!! Check out these young men song, watch they videos on YouTube and give them some love, I promise you won’t regret it.  My Thoughts Of The Day

Getting To Know Mushiya Tshikuka From “Cutting It in The ATL”

MUSHIYA 1

 

On Wednesday June 3rd 2015, I was sitting talking to a really good friend of mines and in our conversation I told her that I would love to meet “MRS. MUSHIYA” from the show “Cutting It In The ATL.” She told me to go on Instagram and send her a message, I said why not It’s worth a try. Within the hour after I sent the message, I got a call saying that I could go with “The Heat Magazine” and do a write-up on Mrs. Mushiya the very next day. Oh you see how fast GOD works, that’s what i told my friend.  So I spoke it into the universe and it came to pass. I met Mrs. Mushiya that Thursday night and when i tell you that she is a FORCE TO BE RECKON WITH, honey that’s and understatement!! She’s so humbled and beautiful all in the same breath tho. When she found out about my battle with cancer, she was so amazed. She told me that I was beautiful, gave me a HUGE hug and kissed me on my cheek. I was so humbled, grateful and most of all shocked because she showed me that much love and didn’t know me from a can of paint. She told one of her colleagues about me, which her dad does nothing but research on cancer and took my info so that she could give to her dad for him to call me. I was so amazed myself, but I had to reflect back to why I was really there. That’s where GOD needed me to be at that very moment to do and get what he needed me too. When I say that I had a blast with Mrs. Mushiya and her crew from “THE DAMN SALON”  6780 Roswell Rd Ne. Atlanta, Ga, please believe me, I even won me a great gift! The Damn Salon specializes in ALL natural hair. She said “Who the hell says that natural hair has to be boring!!?” She believes that “BEAUTY” comes in many colors and shades no matter if they have kinky or straight hair. She also loves herself and want to teach more people to do the same. “Who cares what people think of you?” is what she always says. Can you imagine her face when she says that!? Yeah, I know right lol. You can find THE DAMN SALON in a more than just a few places like Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, Charlotte, NC, New York, Houston, TX, and Montreal. You can also order the hair extensions from her brand called RUNWAY CURLS on her website www.thedamnsalon.com and any other info that you may want to know about this Phenomenal Woman. I’m so glad and honored that I had the pleasure meeting her!! My thoughts of the day!

“PRINCESS BEAUTY BAR & BOUTIQUE”

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

If anyone could tell you one thing about “Ms. TK” is that I LOVE fashion & style. So I stopped in on not only a GREAT friend of mines but where I shop at as well “Princess Beauty Bar & Boutique”, with the one and only Ms. Crystal Flecther. While I was there I felt what better time for me to pick her brain and ask her a few questions about her business. As we always do when I make my visit we have to drink water & chat to see what’s been going on in each other’s lives since our last visit. Today I surprised her when I asked If I could interview her, man if y’all could see the look on her face, I had to laugh myself. She was willing after I finished laughing. I really wanted to know, what made her open a boutique in the first place. “It’s a passion TK, I always loved to shop so I decided to turn my shopping into a business that also helps the women of the community” is what she says to me, so I say “Oh” because she was telling me something that I didn’t know about her. She goes on to say that she love to help every customer look and feel fabulous as well as to help build up their self-esteem but on a low-cost budget. She opened the doors in 2013, with no overhead all by herself. “It makes me feel like a robot sometimes, but I thank GOD that I’m blessed to be able to do it!” she said. In the next 5 yrs, her vision is to be a fashion expert on a tv show, styling celebrities, having her own Brand & some employees so she’ll have time to do what she needs too. Every year for Mother’s Day she does makeovers for mothers which consists of styling them and getting their hair done, with her being a single mother herself is what inspired her to “GIVE BACK” to the community in that form. She also has brought celebrities such as Shekinah(from the T.I. & Tiny show) , and Perez(He’s a celebrity stylist from ATL) to the city and have what we call a “Sip & Shop” event, that’s where women can come mingle, sip & shop all in one place. It’s not easy having a business especially in a city like Columbus, Ga where there is so much of the same things going on all over the city. When your heart is in the right place it does not matter how many of the same things going on opens, as long as GOD is in it, you’ll always win it!!! That’s what she told me in closing, Now those are some GREAT words to live by. If you’re in the city, stop by and give her a visit at 2400 Hamilton Rd, Columbus Ga or you can check her out on her website www.princessboutiqueorg.bigcartel.com She she “ALL” styles of fashion from business, church, allnight-fun, & causul attire, I promise you’ll be hooked because I’M GUILTY MYSELF!! My thoughts of the day!!

Hello World

As I sat for hours trying to think about my very FIRST post with THE HEAT MAGAZINE, I found it to come really easy because this is something that i do every day and I just DO IT! So here I am and first I have to give Honor, Thanks, and Praise to the ALMIGHTY GOD for it is only he that I am writing now. Ok Now that I’m free to the world let’s have some fun and talk about things that you know you think about but don’t say. Well I’m that person to say it for you. Have you ever wondered why some people are always negative? I can tell you why, It’s because they dislike themselves and don’t want to see no one else be happy with themselves especially some women. I see a lot of women out in the middle of the day with pajamas, bonnets, and house shoes on but want a man to look at them or wonder why the man at home is not looking or looking at someone else. Then they tend to get mad but in all reality, they can only be mad at themselves. They have gotten at ease with their everyday same old routine and let themselves go. They need to remember at the end of the day they are still WOMEN and if they don’t think they are the bomb and respect themselves, how can they demand it. We as Women should always stay and be on point. I know some of you are saying, well it’s not enough time in the day. I have kids, I have to work, I have to cook, clean, etc. Yeah I know because I am a woman too, but you have to remind yourself of YOUR PURPOSE and why you are here. Please lets not take it back to the stone age days, you have to make time for yourself. It’s ok and there’s no law that says you can’t do it. Get your hair done, dress up, get a mani and pedi. Yes i know that cost money but if you take $20 out of your check every payday it adds up and add it as a bill every month. It will make you feel so good because there’s nothing like being comfortable in the skin you’re in. Now women, don’t get mad at those that do take that time for themselves and you don’t. It’s not their fault, honey it’s yours. Some may take this to heart but I’m only trying to help. This is MY THOUGHTS of the day!!

“From that Uptown to Downtown, to the Eastside to the West…..”

Epic New Orleans talent Don Flamingo (also known as EGMG‘s artist, “The Show) just released the visuals to “Slanguage”. In his usual fashion, he murders the track. This is one artist shooting to stardom so don’t say we never warned you! At the end of the day, he WILL be one of the greatest to ever spit a rhyme. Backed by super producer Mannie Fresh as well as a team of strong promoters and supporters, he is destined to go down in history.
