Goodbye 2014

The past year is like a old friend that you get used to and just when you think you are fine with them hanging around Poof it's gone. I have to admit I have not done the best job at keeping up with my blog. but hopefully in the New Year I will do much better! Hope you all have a safe and wonderful New Year's Eve celebration.

I love the world of Animation! and seeing people of color in their element just amazes me. I love these group of ladies! though they are not the stars of this film! they take it over and without them the movie would have been nothing all that much to write home about. the shapes and sizes and hairstyles inspire!:))

New book Monday!

Love finding new books to let others know about! and today I found a new one through a google search. Look forward to learning more about this book series.

 
I guess you could call this Africa meets Kenya:))
First-time author Kenya Turner’s The Little Cupcake Divas is the first in a series of children’s books which joyously illustrate her belief that cultural diversity enhances the learning experience. Kenya’s travels around the globe inspired her to write from a multicultural perspective, and her love of baking led her to incorporate that passion into this delicious and delightful book. Kenya is the owner of Sweet on You, LLC, a wholesale bakery/cupcakery with a southern flair.
 
The Little Cupcake Divas is a delightfully written and beautifully illustrated multicultural children’s book about a little girl who rallies her two friends to help her mother as she has innocently forgotten to prepare cupcakes for a birthday  party. The three little girls come together to do what they do best - bake and frost cupcakes while having fun in the process. It is a true celebration of diversity,community and cupcakes

Music mondays Duets!!

I could be all day posting some of my favorite duets! but this is just a sample of a few:))

I love their voices together! it takes a good song to bring out the talent in their voices! I love the blend of r&b and gospel in this song! both showing off their acting skills as well! Deborah Cox is a vocal beast!





Babyface has such a sweet voice! it's not one to so much blow you out the water! but there's just a quality to his voice that I like! Mariah Carey does a great job backing him up on this song!



Another great one with Babyface and Jon B




Now you know Disney has the best duets ever! I love Peabo Bryson's voice on this song! this was my first time I ever heard Celine Dion sing and I was like sing white girl!:))




Another beautiful duet with Peabo Bryson and the great Regina Belle




The one that started it all for me was this Disney Classic!!




one of my all time favorite songs EVER!!! there are no words to express how lyrical this song is it's like a moment in time! I mean BEAUTIFUL!!! I know this question is asked millions of times by many!
