Trinidad Bacchanal...I love it!!!

Enjoy this soca video from Patrice Roberts and Mr. Machel Montano!!

For those of you wondering Bacchanal is a popular Trini (or Caribbean) saying, most often when people use it they are referring to a Big party or fete. It can also mean big confusion, but for the purposes of this blog lets go with the Big Party definition! lol

Now please enjoy the Bacchanal Video above!!

Build or Destroy?

I want to take this time and talk about the most inspirational moment in the Presidential Inauguration speech that stuck out to me. When President Obama said:
"know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy".
There is soooo much more I have to say and feel about this statement but I think this is a blog that I have to build upon and therefore revisit. I just wanted to definitely take the time and point out the greatness of this statement. Brought tears to my eyes.

The Art of Kissing

I believe there is an art to kissing. You got to know what you doing man! I was ecstatic when I stumbled across this list which describes different ways to kiss. Really cute! With Valentine's day around the corner I can't wait to try some of these kisses out. If you read this blog please let me know which ones on the list your willing to try lol, or if you have your own kissing technique do share!

Chocolate Kiss

Best done with a Mars Bar because there is caramel in that too! Just take a bite and French kiss as you would. Very silky smooth type of kiss, and can end up very messy. Extremely pleasurable, and even more funny! Perfect for a first date just after a first kiss, or something to do that's a little bit different. A must for anyone, best style of kissing ever!

Spiderman Kiss
It's just like in the movie. You kiss upside down, taking in both of your lower lips and do all those other kisses listed above.

Spitzer Kiss
What you do is when you are ready to kiss (or even while you're Frenching or doing any other kiss) is gently nibble and/or lick the parts just above or below your partner's lip. Now don't slobber all over your partner. Just give enough saliva to get them damp. This is very fun and romantic. It will also turn your partner on or in other words make them like the kiss more.

Lap Kiss
While your partner is laying with his/her head in your lap, lean over and kiss her/him. Your bottom lip will be on your partner's top lip, and vice versa. You can even French kiss while in this position. This kiss is a playful kiss, and it can lead to much more.

Carmex Kiss
If either you or your partner are not carmex junkies, apply a little carmex to your lips and feel the gentle tingle on your lips.

Muzzle Kiss
When kissing the neck of your partner, at one point blow air out of your mouth while pressing the lips down, creating the sound of some sort of... flatulence. It should be ever so unexpected and quite interesting indeed.

Trade-off Kiss
One of you gets a cinnamon candy and the other a mint. One takes the cinnamon and the other the mint. While French kissing, switch them from time to time. Great fun.

Tongue Ring Kiss
What you do is, if your partner has a tongue ring and the two of you are French kissing, mess with his/her tongue ring while kissing and it gives your partner chills and excitement/happiness because a lot of people with tongue rings love that. Or if the two of you have a tongue ring have a tongue ring WAR! What you do is keep his/her tongue away from your tongue ring, while you're messing with their tongue ring. (NOTE: don't Tangle tongue rings together because that will be a disaster!)

Breath Kiss
In a hot moment - creates major anticipation - barely touch lips with lips slightly parted... then breath your partner's breath... moving heads slowly to experience different sensations... lips touching on and off slightly... it is a very teasing sort of kiss and builds passion tremendously.

Chew Kiss
Tell your partner to place their tongue deeply into mouth deeply... you VERY GENTLY "chew" on the back part of their tongue... do not suck. This will create a sensation in other places that can be very exciting!

Touch Kiss
You do this after you and your partner have Frenched or really kissed a lot. What you do is just simply touch tongues - like the tip of your tongue. You may want to move it around but you don't have to. You don't do it inside your mouth you do it out in the open.

Underwater Kiss
Have your partner hold their breath underwater and when he or she taps you give them air.

Moving Kiss
Make sure a bed or couch or chair is behind your partner and when French kissing gently push your partner onto the chair or whatever is behind them. Very good for serious couples or just beginners.

Flavor Kissing
Put a piece of long lasting gum in your mouth (Hubba Bubba, Trident) just before you and your partner French kiss. While kissing pass the gum back and forth, and see how long it takes for the flavor to run out!

Chin Kiss
Hold your partner's chin with your middle, index, and thumb and tilt their head in the right direction. Continue to hold it as you kiss.

Suck Kissing
This can be a very seductive type of kiss. Instead of French Kissing with your mouth open, while your partner's lips are parted suck on their top our bottom lip with your own, just for a second or two. Then go back to another type of kiss or try the other lip.

Nip Kissing
This type of kiss has to be done carefully, but when done correctly can create a wonderful effect on your partner. While suck kissing, gently bite their lip, but be VERY gentle so as not to hurt your partner. This kiss should only be done with someone that you've kissed a few times before, otherwise you may shock your partner.

Surprise Kissing
This type of kiss is done when your partner is lying down on a sofa or the ground, either asleep or just lying with their eyes closed. Quietly approach your partner and place a small, very gentle kiss on their lips. Intensify the kiss until your partner opens their eyes or awakens.

Vacuum Kissing
This is a playful kiss. While in an open-mouthed kiss, suck in deeply so you're sucking the air from your partner.

Cordial Kissing
Take a sip of your favorite drink, either alcohol or something sweet, and then when your lips meet pour the drink in your partner's mouth. Only take a very small sip.

Butterfly Kissing
Put your eye really close to your partner's cheek and flutter your lashes upon their skin. You can also do this on their lips.

Melt Kissing
Pass an ice cube back and forth in mouth while French kissing.

Glow Stick Frenzy
Pass the mini mouth glow stick back and forth (same thing as melt kissing).

Tongue Sucking
When you have the chance to get really deep into your partners mouth, suck on their tongue as far as you can. Don’t suck to hard, you don't want to hurt your partner. Otherwise it's very pleasing!

Sigh Kiss
When you first start kissing your partner gently lick their lips with the tip of your tongue. Then blow or sigh into their lips, causing a tingling feeling that will intensify your kiss for sure.

Pop Kiss
Use pop-rocks, great fun. You've heard of fireworks, this is an explosion!

Tongue Tease
When you're French kissing, if/when you pull back, and before your mouths meet again, you can flick your tongue up and down quickly against the other person who is doing the same. It's very teasing and fun to see how long it lasts. It’s hard to resist going strong after a while of flicking.

Seven Pounds

This movie didn't get that much hype for a Will Smith movie. But I'm telling you it was spectacular!!! I know I'm a die hard Will Smith fan, but no shade... this movie is BOSS! Ladies especially please go see this movie, you will not regret it, and make sure you bring some Kleenex.

Will Smith's performance is sooo captivating and amusing. Will Smith's character is crazy, unpredictable, fun, romantic, unfair, wonderful and mesmerizing, all at once. My advice is to be a little patient with Seven Pounds, at first you may be frustrated trying to piece the puzzle together but trust me it's worth hanging in there!

Kudos to Will Smith for delivering what I believe is another timeless performance!
Check the trailer on you tube:

Virginity for sale?

I first saw this chick who wants to sell her virginity to the highest bidder on Tyra Bank's show. She really believes that she should profit from her first time; she wants to use the money to pay for grad school. Her name is "Natalie Dylan", she's a pretty girl and Tyra actually had one of the men interested in bedding her on the show. It was this old creepy frail looking man, gross!

Natalie believes that she is really empowering women by auctioning off her goodies. For those of you wondering if this is even legal it’s because this experiment will take place in Las Vegas, Sin City baby! Anyways she says she is not just going for the highest bidder, but for someone whom she has chemistry with. The guy who wins her kitty kat (lol) will go through a criminal background check and STD test. On Tyra’s show a good point was brought up, they asked the frail looking creepy man why would he want to pay for a girl with no experience, who essentially can’t please him in bed? His response was he wants to show her a nice time, and that he would take her out and wine and dine her first. Awwww how sweet? lol

Now I’m all for women getting paid! But I’m not sure if I agree with Natalie on this one, and besides why would a guy want to pay 3.8 million for this, obviously if he has that much money he can get it for cheaper! But I guess it’s the whole taking her virginity thing? Who knows I’m not a guy, so I can’t tell you how they think.
But what are your thoughts?

Shoe la la!

I thought this was a really cool concept... clips for your shoes!

I found out that shoe clips were first introduced in the Victorian era (roughly 1837 to 1901). Women would dress up their footwear with a variety of detachable bows, buckles and jewels instead of purchasing numerous pairs of shoes. Now how fierce is that?!?!

I could definitely take a lesson from my ladies of the Victorian Era, especially now that we are in a recession and times are hard. The way I see is what better way to recycle that old pair of shoes you're tired of rocking, or to spruce up that $15 payless pair!

If you think this is fierce like I do - check out the following websites and get ya shoe clip on:

Body Butters

Imagine that...butter for your skin, so creamy and so soft. I love to step out of the shower and add that extra layer of luxurious moisture to my skin. Some people sip wine to relax, light up a cigarette or puff puff. Me I prefer to lotion! lol Just wanted to let everyone know about the Bath and Body Works sale going on right now - 3 body butters for $15.

I used to lo... like him

Random thoughts...
I really used to like him, (as cliche as it sounds) he gave me butterflies.
I wanted to get to know him, and taste that bad boy style.
I was hoping he was diggin me and I wouldn't have to act shy.
I was ready to give him the thickness, I thought he was soo flippin FLY.
But its CRAZZZY how he just didn't see it and it he let love go by
I mean I really did... in my eyes I really did try...

So I'm flipping through cable trying to find something to watch (don't know why I waste money on cable but that's a whole nother post!) and I stumble on VH1 soul. Yes I said stumble, I'm just not into videos like I used to be... anyways they just happen to be playing a whoooole hour of Lauryn Hill videos, I instantly became estactic!! What a TALENTED SISTAAA!! I've been waiting for the Lauryn Hill comeback which will be better than the Michael Jordan, Jay Z and Joaquin Phoenix comeback put all together!
Hits such as Everything is Everything, Lost Ones, EXFACTOR!!, The Sweetest Thing, Doo Wop, "funny how money changes situations (uh uh!!) miscommunications lead to complications!" and I'm instantly taken back to how FLY, sophisticated and how much of a natural beauty Lauryn is. They say it's her relationship with the infamous Rohan Marley that changed her, if it's true it's funny how love can sometimes take you out of your element. In any case Lauryn I'm not here to criticize you girl, Lauryn we miss you!! Come back to us, music is lost without you!!
