Learn From Andre 3000

April 11, 2016

Andre 3000

Where there is cheese there are rats,
Where ever there are rats there are cats,
Where ever there are cats there are dogs.
If you got the dogs you got bitches.
Bitches Always out to put their paws on your riches.
If you got riches,you got glitches.
If you got glitches in your life computer turn it off and then reboota.
Now you back on.
Can’t just put the cap on the old bottle once you pop it that will spoil it, gone and drink it and enjoy it.
– Track: Millionaire

Andre 3000 not only has great lyrics which teach us that there will be people and things trying to hold us back, yet we must still keep going. But he is also highly successful. Andrew 3000 is worth an estimated $50million. Through his music, acting, clothing line and more. What I like most about Andre 3000 is he has stayed low key from the public eye, he is living his life.

My Top 90s Hip-Hop Artists / Albums

April 11, 2016

While making this I realise that I couldn’t fit everyone in! There are about 100 more artists/albums that should be here. I can easily say that real Hip-Hop music is a piece of me. I grew up listening to Hip-Hop through my teenage years. I listened while I grew my business. I listened while I travelled the world. And I still listen. This might sound bizzare to you but real Hip-Hop has taught me alot of life skills.

Biggies lyric “Dam Right I Life The Life I Live Because I Went From Negative To Positive” represents my daily motto. The sexual undertones of Slum Village, the real/rawness from Lil Kim, the hype from Wu Tang, the great feeling from Camp Lo, the shivers I get from Common, the flow from Tribe………

Who ever said Hip-Hop music has a bad influence is deaf. Along with blues, real Hip-Hop is the realist music I’ve ever heard.

3 Foods To Boost Brain Power That You Wouldn’t Guess

April 9, 2016

Blueberries

Evidence accumulated at Tufts University in the United States suggests that the consumption of blueberries may be effective in improving or delaying short term memory loss. Widely available, so there’s no excuse.

Broccoli

A great source of vitamin K, which is known to enhance cognitive function and improve brainpower.

Pumpkin Seeds

Just a handful of pumpkin seeds a day is all you need to get your recommended daily amount of zinc, vital for enhancing memory and thinking skills.

VEGANS!! PUT THE WINE GLASS DOWN

April 9, 2016

I like to drink socially or alone, when i eat and when i am happy, I enjoy a drink as much as the next person, so here is the frustrating thing

Many companies refine and clarify their wines and champagnes with non-vegan filling agents.

They use this process to remove bad flavors or unsightly elements while creating “fine” wines. After much research, I compiled this list along with great resources to assist us in avoiding these animal by products.

Some by-products that could be lurking in non-vegan conventional  beer and wines are:

  • isinglass (fish bladder by-products)
  • blood 
  • egg whites
  • casein (milk protein)
  • gelatin (derived from bones and connective tissues)
  • fish gelatin
  • egg albumin
  • chitin/chitosan (derived for the shells of crabs or lobsters)

 

We can identify vegan wines by reading the label, looking for the words “vegan” and “unfiltered” printed on the label.

I haven’t watched a movie in 3 years

April 9, 2016

It’s not you, its me.

  • I get bored
  • I feel guilty that I am wasting time
  • I feel unproductive
  • It doesn’t stimulate me
  • I don’t want to be influenced

The last time I really watched something was with my ex. We use to have cozy nights and snuggle up and watch stuff. Since then I’ve never watched anything. I don’t have a netflix account. I don’t even watch clips on youtube.

Not even the news…

Yes, I might be missing something that the media projects but I am willing to take the risk.

If we ever meet, don’t invite me to watch anything… 😉

Menaje a troi in Paris

April 7, 2016

I met S and C together in a bar. Of course.. I was alone. The bar was typically beautiful, expensive, classy bar close to the Lourve. I was reading a book when their friend D approached me to compliment the title of my book. D’s partner and friends were on their way asked to join me and I obliged. I went from a solo team to a group of 4 unexpectedly. Really, I planned on finishing my book. Eventually I found out more about my new group. It turns out that they all worked together for some corporate company. The evening was approaching and I decided to make a move. We exchanged numbers, said our goodbyes. I soon got a text from S inviting me to a party in the Suburbs. I’d heard mixed things about the burbs of Paris, everything from dangerous to cute/quiant. I’d only been there once but not in daylight so I couldnt judge. I guess like everywhere, it depends which part of the burbs. I accepted the invitation. I am now going to vaguely discribe my night in points.

  • Bottles of Moet
  • Bottles of Ciroc
  • Bottles of Grey Goose
  • HipHop/AfroBeats/Dancehall/House
  • Dancing
  • A fight (not me)

To enter this club you had to buy a bottle on entry. A BOTTLE! Not a glass.. I have no clue where I was. But it was the most fun I’d had in a very long time. We were all having fun together… After the fight broke out we drove (who drove!) back to my rented Parisian apartment.

— We all went for breakfast the next day. Amazing expereince..

Needless to say that before this experience I never had a mutual 3 way relationship. But it works. I think this works because I dont live in Paris. We see eachother once every few months and it works.

Exploring The Streets Of Lyon

April 5, 2016

Gosh its beautiful here. And just what I needed after the hideous break up with my ex.

Lyon is rich in atmosphere, people and the city moves at a good pace. Not too fast, not sluggishly slow

I walked alot in Lyon, I mean ALOT. It is one of the more cleaner French cities. Calm, relaxed atmosphere with a cool sophisticated hipster vibe. I recommend visiting Parc de la Tete d’Or, Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere, Vieux Lyon and Fourviere Hill.

Vieux Lyon was my favourite part of the visit

Vieux Lyon is the old town of Lyon. I was lucky enough to be visiting during the summer time so I lined up a perfect adventure of a hot summers day. As it is the cities oldest district you will find yourself walking through many ally ways and side roads. Sometimes there are too many little streets to walk into you’ll be spoilt for choice. While walking alone I started to make up my own stories with my surrounding as the setting. It is that enchanting.

Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere should defiantly be on your list. I took a weird route to get there and discovered an old open theatre courtyard. I climbed to the top of the hill and simply chilled out. Ate my packed lunch then walked on to the Fourviere. Most people take a tram or the shuttle bus. Fourviere itself offers a magnificent view of Lyon. It is packed with tourists but you can find your own little spot which is what I did.

Lyon ratings:

People: 6/10, the people are nice but reserved. I wasn’t interacting much though

Food: 8/10, the food in Lyon is vegan friendly. (unlike other French cities)

Price: 8/10, all good about price, i barely spent anything

Nightlife: i don’t know..

Vibe: 8/10, great vibe, chill, relaxed and clean

Average Overall Rating: 7.8/10

I Always Misbehave In Paris

April 4, 2016

Everytime I go to Paris, I return with smiles, stories and secrets

Let me explain…

There is never a real reason why I frequent Paris so often. I am there every other month for at least 5 days. It seems to just work for me.

The last time I was in Paris I solo attended a Dancehall party I heard about. Yes I went to a Dancehall Club alone. The fact that nobody knows me is amazing. I CAN ACT AS I PLEASE. So I did. Vodka tonic was my drink of choice and I lost track of how many  I had. The was jam packed and it started with a dance lesson on the dancefloor. That was amazing! I stood in the middle following along and when I couldnt see the instructor or forgot I freestyled. By around 12am it was party time only.
By 4am I was in the DJ booth dancing with them. Talk about groupie… I remember meeting many beautiful people including a German and a Kiwi. Nothing happened as I was so in the zone, I wasn’t concerned with connecting with people.
Until the next day…

Another memory of Paris is when I discovered the beautiful meaning of: menage a troi. Read more here
