Out With The Old.....In With The NEW!



 It's been an entire year since I last posted!! Can you believe it? I can't.But considering I've had a revival within myself in that year so shall my blog. I'm currently writing you from my hotel in downtown San, Franciso until Sunday while attending the Boys & Girls Club National Conference. Some of you may know me as a blogger, others, a talk-show host, but many young people know me as a BGC coordinator in several Philly communities. I love what I get to do and travel is just the cherry on top! 

I can honestly say I've grown tremendously while being away from you guys (oh how I've missed thee). In my absence I've become more of a professional and an activist for change. I've continued filming my talk-show, The Buzzklub, now in it's 3rd season with new episodes set to be released this month. I have also become more fearless in my ambitions and lost old friends as well as gained new ones. It's been a hard road, but through the shift of my RELATIONSHIPS with others, I've learned more about myself and how to communicate better. Despite all of that and then some... I am happier. 



There's no secret here to my happiness. I work out 3-4 times a week at my local Planet Fitness , I cook more for myself, I sit in silence at least 5-10 minutes a day, I pray more, I'm closer to my family, and I'm no longing focusing in what I don't have or who doesn't like me... Instead I focus my efforts on GRATITUDE. I turned 27 in March and some people don't even get to see that! I'm from Philly, so you know what that means! Gun violence is running rampant and it could be ME. 


I want to hank you all for your continued support even if it wasn't always very clear to me.... THANK YOU. May is always a great time for innovative and new ideas to flourish and I guarantee this is just the beginning!

XOXO,
Honey

*Buzzworthy Event* Posh Party!


Last night I had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful ladies of the Poshmark brand at the Le Meridian hotel on 14th and Arch, Philadelphia!
It was a beautiful event in a beautiful location filled with lots of goodies and complimentary cocktails!! I was in heaven.

I received an invite to come out but of course you know I had to do my research before I came ... So honey downloaded the app!! And you know I was VERY Impressed!

Poshmark is an easy and efficient way to buy and sell items without the hassle of having to go to the postoffice because they send you shipping labels to print at home and you get your money really quickly! They also serve as your customer support team. All they ask for in return is 20% which is a very good competitive price considering you get to eliminate all the extra headache out of your life when it comes to selling to people you may not know like on Ebay. They are your customer support team! However , Poshmark also serves as a social media site where you can follow anyone's closet and they can follow yours. Its my online THRIFT STORE!

The interaction and mobility of the application is reminiscent of Instagram which was awesome because a working gal like myself needs my apps to be "user friendly"! So far I've only listed two items on my page since yesterday but I do plan on listing more!! Will you do the same?

BUZZ ABOUT IT!

*NEW POST* Message from the Blogger: Taking The Oath

Dear Readers,

I was recently in a relationship with someone for three months. Prior to we had been friends and worked closely for a year. He was an awesome guy but there were some external challenges for the both of us and internal for myself. In the end I made a decision to let him go until we both could kind of "get it together" without the pressure of being good girlfriends and boyfriends. Even more importantly I felt like something was missing for me and I wasn't ready to settle without knowing where the doubt was stemming from. I also wanted to be a little selfish and focus entirely on my career (although he was helpful without a doubt). So we broke up. He said I dumped him. I feel like when both parties can have a mature discussion and agree to some of the same issues than its a mutual separation. So that's what I'll call it. Any ways, at first we were back to being friends but some ill feelings were still there and now we are no longer speaking. Actually he has shut me out of his life. I'm on blocked lists, unfollowed. The entire nine yards. I went from angry to sad to disappointed but again, in the end I wanted a separation and I got it. I was very sad until it dawned on me, MOVE ON. No I mean really. He's over you so get over it and learn that you need to do it differently the next time around with someone new. In that same breath I was prompted to create a set of oaths that will guide me from here on out for the rest of my life. And here they are:

Bintu's Oath From Here On Out:

1. My self identity does not lie in the hands of a man or woman
2 . I can and will reach MY fullest potential
3. I will not let my emotions get the best of me.
4. I will pause and think before speaking to anyone about important matters because you can't take something back once it's said.
5. I will be honest and be kind. However i will not be afraid if my honesty will be seen as unkind bc it is only being said in TRUTH.
6. I will only date strong partners who know where they are going and have a clear vision . ONLY
7. I will go on 3 vacations a year. At least one big one and two mini ones
8. I will NEVER have unprotected sex unless i am married and ready for children
9. I will make peace with God and myself first bc nothing else matters and the rest will come together
10. I will not chase men. I will not have them chase me. No game playing.
11. I will not be hasty when finding a mate
12. I will not harbor ill will towards anyone who chooses not to support or be apart of my life because life is about choices and being true to urself.
13. I will never stay in a relationship that I believe isn't for me. I'm not ever gonna settle.
14. If I ever lose my little bit of happy, I can find it somewhere in isolation where I can just be alone with God and my creativity
15. When I truly find someone and fall in love (foreal) I must not be afraid to commit
16. I will only be with someone bc I couldn't imagine life without them
17. I will not let heartbreak get in the way of my hard work
18. I will be serious when it comes to my dreams and aspirations
19. I will wake up everyday thankful and knowing what life has to offer me
20. I will treat all human beings, children and animals with RESPECT.

What do you think? BUZZ ABOUT IT! And take the challenge by writing and living up to your own ....

*NEW POST* Asap Rocky Disses Girls In MakeUp?!

Now we all know ASAP Rocky is one pretty mother***er! But Most recently, rapper ASAP Rocky was interviewed by Coveteur and caused a stir because he had a few interesting remarks about women who get all dolled up:

"But you girls don’t understand how much you mess up your skin. You can’t help it, but make-up is the worst thing you can do to your skin. I love girls natural, but I don’t mind make-up. There’s nothing wrong with it, there’s really nothing wrong with it. See, guys like us we just like—well me, I only speak for myself, but guys like me, I’m used to normal. I’m used to real. Like yeah, your shit is going to stink, you’re real, you know? You piss, you bleed, you laugh, you cry—you’re human. So makeup is just like an artificial expression if you ask me."

And then he went in to say...

"When it’s time to get all dazzled up or you’re going out, then fine. I like red lips, it’s fine. I’m going to be real, though: it’s bad for making out, because it gets on the guys. But for real, for me, I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the pair of complexion. I’m just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear like—f*cking for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls cant do… Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the f*ck…"

I personally agree with him. Make up will ruin your skin especially if you don't take care of it properly and have a good moisturizer before application. But a little make up here and there for special occasions won't hurt too much. There are however women who put make up on to go grocery shopping! You can't mask your insecurities with foundation FYI!

As for the whole bold lipstick trend, he's also right about guys not necessarily liking that. It turns them off from kissing you because they stain the lips. As far as skin complexion goes, there are different shades of red that would go well with any complexion. Honey says, as an artist, ASAP should really avoid promoting skin color stereotypes. It sounds a but ignorant and people get really sensy about it (even though I understood where he was coming from or trying to go with it).

I didn't really get offended especially since he was only expressing his honest opinion, but what are your thoughts? Buzz about it!

*FILM REVIEW*: The Call

The Call
Starring Halle Berry & Morris Chestnut
Directed by: Brad Anderson

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a 911 call center? As children we are taught that in case of an emergency, dial 911 and immediately help will be sent your way... But who answers what if help doesn't get there in time? Brad Anderson brings you a psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. When a young girl is abducted by a psychopath, Halle becomes obsessed with helping her escape before its too late and the clock is ticking.

I rate this film a B. definitely not a Hollywood blockbuster but also not what you would conventionally expect from Halle. It's a very normal role that empathetically pulls at our heart strings and causes us to have compassion for those individuals who provide services to humans often putting their own sanity and safety at risk. Nobody likes doing the hard jobs and it never occurred to me how important a 911 receptionists job really is! I mean, what if they simply did not exist? No one would hear your scream. I am EXTREMELY grateful after this film and I also valued my own life.

Halle was in her least sexiest role to date but still looked beautiful. Her acting was stellar and seasoned. There's lots to say about how hard she works and the way she takes care of herself. Her romance with Chestnut also had pretty good chemistry. It's nice to see a leading black female with a strong BLACk male on screen again. I wouldn't dare go as far as to call the film a "black film" because of it, I just like how it subtly promoted "black love". I think it was a good casting. This film is a great choice for any Sunday afternoon but all around you get your money's worth. The twist at the end was definitely a surprise!

*ASTRO BUZZ* Happy Birthday Aries!


Aries
(March 21-April 19)

Number one in the zodiac and you certainly steal the show because you are full of courage and adventure. Nobody tells an Aries what to do because Aries is all about calling the shots and being exciting and vibrant while doing so. In Roman mythology, you were known as Mars, the ancient God of war and symbolically you are represented by the ram. What makes you so sexy is your assertiveness and ability to reach great heights without ever worrying about anyone else's opinion. The center of your world is full of action so don't be surprised to find cameras rolling wherever you are. Aries are considered natural born leaders in the truest form. Your kindness to those you love such as friends and loved ones is sincere and you're simply awesome!

What Aries woman wants, she gets.  This woman definitely enjoys new challenges and is charismatic and dynamic. Her sign is represented as fire therefore she's passionate and likes to get her own way. She likes a man that has the balls to go toe to toe with her, it's both exciting and challenging for her.  She's intense because she is looking for true love and success. This is a woman who wants to be in charge! She is creative, talented, and impulsive. But you love her any way!
