Video: So Gone (What My Mind Says)| Jill Scott

Don't want this thing...
but can't let go..

I swear... everytime I heard this song.. it did “something” to me.  Had my mind wandering ALL over the place.  Hmmm

I absolutely love this video.  Jill did her THING!!

Why does my body ignore...
What my mind says???


Happy Halloween!!!

Side-Commentary:  Heidi Klum's shits on em EVERY year.  I swear she ALWAYS has best costume in my book.  She never goes for the norm...and if she does...she goes the extra mile to make it different.  Kudos to Heidi. 

Oddly enough... Halloween is my favorite holiday :-)  I love costume parties.. haunted houses...scary movies..chocoooolllaaattteee... all that good stuff. SNOWED o_o here this year.. so my plans for Saturday were slaughtered.  And as for today..well it's MONDAY.. and hey..I have an occupation. no excitement for me.  However... it'll be fun handing out Candy to the kiddies.  They joy on their faces and their costumes always makes me smile.  Hope everyone has a safe/fun Halloween.   

In Lieu of the Holiday... Let's gooooooooo #JamSession


Motivation Mondays...

I was lookin at my resume
Feeling real fresh today
Rewrite history
I don’t believe in yesterday

Clear your mind if you have to... and THEN.. get right back to business.  Something in your main focus??  What are you waiting for!?  Go for it!  You only get once chance at this thing called life.  Why not enjoy it.  Work Hard.  Play Smart.  LIVE Fun.  It's Gorgeous. 

Keep it real.. or keep it movin..
Keep grindin.. keep shinin

If you can’t live.. you dyin.. you can’t rewind

Women's Empowerment Wednesdays...

If somebody woulda told me a year ago...
 it was gon' get this difficult...

There are too many distractions occurring in our life.. resulting in us, half the time, worrying about the "wrong things". Time to pay attention more and face reality...especially when there are "signs" all around you. Take notes... play the game well... and most of all keep your eyes open to the "Flashing Lights".  Whether it's your life.. love life... etc. Doesn't matter. Let's be more attentive to the important things and watch how things change. Love you all. Stay beautiful. Xoxo.


Side Commentary:  This might be one of my favorite.. if not favorite.. Kanye video.  I love it entirely... especially the part where she uses the shovel.  #DontAsk lls

Video: My Mine | Jhene Aiko

All of the time... trying to forget you....

Ms. Aiko debuts the visuals for "My Mine", a track off of her Sailing Souls mixtape... which btw got HEAVY rotation from me over the summer.  Anywho.. check it out...

Side-Commentary: #Truth.

Six Ft. Over| Cocaine 80s x Common

I liked her like a simile...

Cocaine 80s, No I.D. Collective, collabs with Common, "Six Ft. Over".. on No I.D's new EP, Ghost Lady. 

Video: Ghetto| The Dream ft. Big Sean

Fxck around and need a place mat….

I was JUST sharing this song with one of my holmes on Saturday.. {amongst what it does to me lls} and low and behold.. a video is released...#Pleasantry.

Motivation Mondays...

Now maybe someday..
I’ll reach a higher goal..
I know that I can make it...
With just a little bit of soul…
Cause I’ve got my strength..
And It don’t make sense..
Not to keep pushin…

The storm is here….but the sun ALWAYS shines again.  No matter what you’re facing….don’t stay in the dumps.. build yourself up..and keep on pushing.  The only person to stop you is you.  Have a great week Loves. 

Side-Commentary:  Lawd…the past two weeks have been completely exhausting in every physical/mental way possible.  I just wanna live....

Video: Lincoln Way Nights| Stalley feat. Rick Ross

Large tips for my bell men...

Stalley {and Rozay} does it again.  This song has been out for a while, along with the preview of the vid, but the full length visuals were actually released this week.  I'm feelin it.

sn:  That steak and those strawberries look gooooooood

Cuffing Season Has Returned| D-Man

The title ALONE will lure you in to listen, especially the tracklisting with titles like "Damn Son.. Hector's Sister is THICK" to "I Want Her but She has Standards and High Self Esteem tho" lls...  I couldn't help but to take a listen myself and was NOT disappointed at all. 
 Hands down, even with this being an instrumental album, this goes in my top 5 for the year.  I've listened over and over.
  Definitely download worthy. 


S.O. to Ashley O. for hippin me to this.

Motivation Mondays...

Today.. I opted for something a little different.  Instead of the usual musical inspiration post...I decided to post a message from the Dalai Lama.

I've been going through it {Heartbreak, Stress, the Mourning Loss in my family etc.}.  And as good as I hide it with MANY distractions... it doesn't stop my mind from constantly running and reflecting. 

Marinate on this message above people..... #Seriously.

xoxo Dolcezza.

Big Sean in "Lay It On Me"| Weekend Recap 20

Puttin in work... and I ain't even hired...

Around the 2:44 Mark.. the love of my life Big Sean makes his appearance in Kelly Rowland’s New Video “Lay It On Me”.   That was all the eye candy I needed in this vid lol

Sean’s Up close and Personal “Weekend Recap” Series pt.20 , also, dropped.   

Womens' Empowerment Wednesdays...

Time to re-evaluate who’s in your life and what they bring to the table.  Ladies…. I know it’s in our nature mostly to be caring and nurturing, but there comes a point in time where.... enough is enough.  Instead of compromising yourself over and over again (for anyone)… try taking care of YOU by eliminating the negative.

 Stay positive Loves!  Enjoy the rest of your week!  xoxo

I know what you’re doing…
And it’s not gonna work this time.

{Personal Post} Photos :: My Birthday Weekend

Dont' be clownin my size 3s -_-

I won the fourth game... that's all that mattered LOL

Fast forward past my second party that night (no pictures.. it was out of control lol)... anywho.. it resulted in us all having a sleepover ...and waking up looking like roadkill LOL

October 11th- My Birthday has Arrived :-)

It's clear where I was...

I'm Ready...
Welp.. Here goes nothing...

Tat #16... Complete.

hip hop awards. lol.  A recipe that was sure to cheer me up haha
I spent my actual birthday this year completely alone.  No family.. No friends.. No boyfriend (if I had one)... no one.  I will honestly say.. it was NOT a good feeling.  However... I made the best of it by playing Verde Terrace ALL day.. doing laundry.. getting another tat... going grocery shopping... and ending it off with this:
Shrimp Tempura, Greens & Corn, Vodka, Cider, Candles, Cookie Dough, and the BET hip hop awards. lol.  A recipe that was sure to cheer me up haha

On a brighter note... I want to thank all that send wishes and shouts--- I got on Twitter yesterday (over 100 birthday ) mentions.. and on Facebook.  I was completely overwhelmed by all the love and comments people gave.  You guys don't know how much that meant to me!!

Thank you to my mom, dad, and family who called and sang that lovely rendition of “Happy Birthday” lol J  That made my morning.  Also... I had a BLAST this weekend!  I want to thank all of the people who actually put forth an effort to make sure that happened.  I, publically, want to thank you.  I had soooooo much fun.  You know who you are!  We rocked out!!!
