Song of the Day: Happy B-day MJ!!

Hey Dolls,

I had to come on and do a post devoted to the legend Michael Jackson. It is still weird saying that because now he really is. Love him soooo and still and always, always will:) I have chosen my personal fav MJ song below as the song of the day and I hope you enjoy as much as I do. I mean when I hear this song coming on!!! Automatic singing time and a little foot work too:) Enjoy. Peace and light.


1+1=3: Bey & Jay :)

Peace Family,

I come to you all this morning so happy. It is the calm after the storm here in Maryland and Irene is gone. We are left with the recovery (picking up trees, debris, etc.) I pray my mom and friends get power soon :(

Also, I'm so happy for Beyonce and Jay-Z this morning. They are hip hip royalty and are a couple that has weathered the storm of celebrity and rumor mill with poise. It is going to be so great to witness them continue their talented legacy with the birth of their child. Cheers to them :) In case you haven't already seen it, check out Beyonce's performance at the VMA's last night. Peace and blessings to you all for a great week :)

Irene is Coming!!

Grab your flash lights, batteries, coolers, and ice because it is about to go down! lol

Really family,

I'm usually not one to over react about storms and such but this one is suppose to be a mother!! I have heard about little else in the last few days and I even got a notice on my door to remove all air conditioners from windows to avoid water disruption. I repeat, ITS ABOUT TO GO DOWN! I had to cancel my Baltimore Natural Hair Meet Up this weekend which dang near broke my little excited heart smh. So, I thought I would put a few of the tips I have been hearing below just in case you live under a rock and haven't heard the thousands of news casts and people talking in the hallways, train stations,  and bus stops about this hurricane. Here you go:)

-Have a radio and batteries handy in case of a power outage so that you will be informed of the latest developments.
-Keep a cooler and ice handy in case of a power outage.
-Keep away from windows and skylights and make sure both are closed and secured.
-Invest in a decent size flash light and lots of batteries
-Grab a deck of cards, crayons, and coloring books in case of an power outage so you can have a little fun indoors:) (Courtesy of Vida at my job)

Well that's all I really have folks. If you're a meat eater, it may be a good idea to get a separate cooler for meat in case of an power outage so it won't go bad. Diabetics please get a cooler to put your medicine in if you take insulin (learned from my mommy :). I hope this posts helps you all in some way. If you have any hurricane safety tips please leave them below. Until next time I wish you all peace and light.

Meet Confectionista Chanel Davis!!!

Peace Family,

It is my pleasure to introduce to you the confectionista Miss Chanel Davis of  "NelleBelle'sConfections." She is a rising talent in the baking business and has so many tasty treats to share with us. Check out the interview below:)

HoneyCee: For those who may not know, What is Nelle Belle's Confections and how long has it been in operation?
Chanel: NelleBelle's Confections is a home-based confectionery with the aim of providing all things sweet: if you want it for dessert, you can get it from us. from cookies and brownies, to cakes and cupcakes, to ice cream and pie, we offer a wide variety of options to satisfy nearly every sweet tooth under the sun. The business has been in operation since June 2010 with big hopes of a long, successful future.
Honey Cee: What kinds of deserts do you make?
Chanel: Our current menu includes 20+ cupcake flavors available in three sizes and more flavors being added almost monthly. We also make classic as well as custom-order cakes for every occasion, cookies, Parisian macaroons, brownies, cake pops, and cake balls. The bakery is in the process of expanding to pies, cobblers, ice creams, candies and fudge.
Honey Cee: How does your daily life influence your craft?
Chanel: Being a chemist by day and a baker by night makes mixing, assembling, and creating an all-day task. People are generally excited about dessert so, if for some reason I can't find inspiration within myself, someone is always willing to give me ideas (or maybe just cravings) for the next cupcake.
Honey Cee: When did you start baking?
Chanel: I grew up in a household constantly filled with candy so once I was old enough to operate an oven and build such goodies for myself, I dove right in. I started making cookies in high school but they weren't exactly a success. I kept with it through college but the recipe still hadn't quite matured into anything worth bragging about. It wasn't until after college that I started making cakes and cupcakes for my friends' birthdays. It's been love ever since.
HoneyCee: What is your favorite thing to make?
Chanel: Cupcakes! I think it's awesome that they come in a convenient serving size.  It's as if whichever cupcake I choose was made especially for me, individually wrapped and ready to go.  I love the ability to make each one different: adding swirls, sprinkles, fillings, colors, etc. all to easily create a personal touch to each one.  And they're just so cute! I have yet to meet a cupcake I didn't think was adorable.
HoneyCee: How can people who are interested in your services get in touch with you?
Chanell: The adventures of NelleBelle's Confections are described in detail on our blog (, projected in photograph on our fan page (, and randomly spouted in real time on twitter ( Orders are currently being taken via email ( but a full-service website is certainly on its way.
HoneyCeeToss Up: What is your favorite song at the moment and why?
Chanel: 'Collard Greens and Cornbread' by Fantasia - no real rhyme or reason to it, I think it's the mix of love and food that make me want to sing along.

Jay Z "Decoded'

Good morning Family,

It's a dull drab morning here in Baltimore but I am thankful nonetheless. Wanted to come and share my latest book review with you all. I read Jay Z's "Decoded" about 2 months ago and I have to say it was MUCH more than I expected. The book was primarily about hip hop and his overall love and enthusiasm for the game so many years in but he also touched on a few other topics such as politics and religion. I am left with an even deeper appreciation for Jay Z and all he has contributed to rap and urban culture. Check out my video reviews below and feel free to leave a comment and let my know what you think:) Blessing for a beautiful day. Cee ya in the next post!!
