Sweet Kisses of Dreams

kisses

My dreams are not always sweet
but when I wake I think of you and my daydreams
begin to put a special taste in my mouth
Something I can’t put into words but
know that I am thinking of you and
from night time thru the day time
and in between time

Your sweetness covers me like honey
soft, sweet, sticky and everlasting
making sure I am never without
you cover me
you immerse me in your strength with
showers of gifts, hugs and the sweetest kisses ever

never leave
my sweet dream
you are my
love

#ClintonSparksGaveMeAMixtape

clintonsparks
You know those nights when you decide last minute to
take a little road trip to see one of your favorites?
Found out the talented and sexy Dj June who is a resident at
PROVIDENCE
in the Tropicana/Atlantic City was spinning the night of her
birthday and the guest DJ was the legendary
Now my “fan” relationship with Clinton Sparks spans over a decade plus.
Coming to NYC since ’98 I, of course, would pick up mixtapes and bring them
back home to Portland, OR to share with my “friends”.
This Boston DJ killed it every time, had the exclusives and was doing it before most.
He brought a style that I would describe as “beast mode” just listen to this intro..

So for the first time in my Hiphop career I got to see him spin live
and in the true fan form I watched, listened and made a point to tell him “I loved HIM”
while he set the tables on fire. The party-goers at Providence probably didn’t even know
what they were witnessing but I DID and loved every minute. A great venue, great drinks, great service, sexy crowd, amazing light show just to top off the whole night.
Once his set was over I of course made my way to him… couldn’t miss my chance.
I shared my admiration without sounding like a creep and of course confessed to bootleggin’
his mixtapes but hey I bet there are more people in Oregon who know who he is thanks to me.
Something about that time in Hiphop that I really miss.
So to be personally handed a mixtape from someone I use to brag about was the best ending to a great night. (except the fact that the person taking pic didn’t know how to use camera…but I don’t care if I look crazy)

But I can now cross this Dj off my bucket list.
Not that I wouldn’t want to see him again… and again but
such a pleasure to be a fan for a night.
Also found a great interview with him on HHDX from 2006

Chill

The chill is there
filling the room
the corners or your smile begin to move
never in my life
did I think that
it would take so little to make me change
but it did
you did
in such a short time the tides have changed
something new
I’m focused now
the cold is turning to warmth and melting
every little piece
of what was hard

BLAST OFF from PLANET DEFJAM

defjam missy
or should I say the new DEFJAM?
Last night I stopped by the launch party of the new site of one of hip hop’s favorite labels.
From QuestLove to Clinton Sparks the tables stayed lit all night..
SALUTE THE DJS
and the vibe was chill even though it was over 100 degrees outside.
Sponsored by REMY which I saw most drinking out of branded foam cups brought to you by Hiphop Friends and there were some wooden Def Jam iphone cases floating around. I guess nothing for the Galaxy users.. lol
Needless to say….it was great to see old faces, meet some new faces and make new business connects. Even though most I met thought I worked for DefJam I let em know it was all about FemaleFlow! I always find the “vibe” of an event interesting and what makes an event work or not work. Most have no idea what it takes to make an event successful and that goes beyond just a “party”. There is number behind everything. But no matter how good or bad, I always choose to have fun and introduce myself to at least 3 people before I leave.

Interview with Superbowl Champ Verron Haynes

verron
Straight out of Georgia this retired Superbowl XL winner is a very busy guy serving as a international commentator and tv personality he still finds time to keep it real. Verron Haynes is an active pillar in the community, involved father, philanthropist to his native country of Trinidad as well as breast cancer survivors and there looks to be no stopping this former running back. He was 5th round pick by the Steelers in 2002 NFL Draft and even graced the cover of Pittsburgh Magazine as 2007’s “Most Beautiful People” issue. For you sports heads here is a couple stats before I jump into these questions… from 2002 to 2006, Haynes gained 660 yards on 159 carries (4.2 average per carry) & 3 touchdowns. He also recorded 39 receptions for 322 yards (8.3 average per reception) and two touchdowns. Now let’s see what keeps Mr. Haynes so busy with life after football!
If your parents were to describe you in a couple words/adjectives what do you think they would say?
  Ever since I was a child, my Mother has called me the energizer bunny, always staying busy, positive and excited.
Who was your biggest influence throughout the process of becoming a professional athlete?
  My Father. Uric “Buggy” Haynes who was a professional athlete and served as a Captain of the Trinidad and Tobago Soccer team. Aside from inheriting his athletic ability and genetics, I was able to experience first-hand what it takes to become a professional athlete. My Father taught me to always rise early before your opponent and remain hard-working and determined.
Now I personally appreciate a man that knows how to rock a suit as well as sweatsuit and you seem to do it very well, what is your favorite out of the two?
 Times have changed and people have become very casual over the years. As a kid, I had the perception that men who wore suits were successful and out in the world getting business done. A well tailored suit has the ability to evoke the feeling of eagerness to strive and make moves.
Additionally, it is a great sense of confidence to feel well put together.

REPOST: 11-11-12 Her name was Sandy

sandy2012
So as you all can see there has been limited posts on here…
I had no electricity or internet for a while but I will not complain
as many more have had less. Shot out to my peoples in Coney Island
who lost everything and I am slowly collecting things to give to them.
The time away has given me an opportunity to break away from the regular life
of social networking (even though I still had twitter and IG on my phone, limited) but
with no electricity, no internet and no phone for a few days definitely puts
life into a dark but very eye opening light.
I am so thankful for the little things in life like my daughter, my health and the warmth of a clean shower… come to think of it these are some BIG things.
Above is a photo of Jersey City the night of Sandy before it hit and there was a scary peacefulness in the air. My daughter and I walked the dog that evening and the winds were definitely whipping things up as trees had already started to fall. The park looked almost haunting and it was crazy to see what was lying in the streets, sidewalks and yards as random things took flight. Nature is a beautiful, amazing thing that can be a little intimidating to say the least.
We are but a tiny spot on the planet…
I pray for those who are still going through the after effects from the storm
XOXO

JUST A THOUGHT…

old laugh

So I saw this photo on FB
and it got me thinking….
How long have these ladies known eachother?
What were they “smoking”?
Do they laugh together everyday?
What has kept them alive and young?
They look happy, what is the driving force behind the smiles?
I can imagine life long lived if you surround yourself with happiness, peace, joy, good friends and I know many say that weed brings people together but if it is tobacco I just don’t see these women living this long. Needless to say, it must be a beautiful thing to be able to smile after it all with a friend knowing that no matter what happens you are ready to embrace it.
XO,
MISSY B
