Maybe it's just me being to involved in the complication of lyrical content, but thre seems to be a connection between two songs from different eras. Sure, I'm all to aware of the fact that songs are sampled everyday to reproduce new and so called improved versions of songs from the past. However, in the case of Mars -vs- Cruisin', it is the meaning of the lyrical content along with how the music flows that brings you back to the romantic times o...

Posted by Nicole K. on Thursday, January 26, 2012, In : Travel 


Lady O has been in the news quite a bit lately. Before the Fresh Start Issue of O Magazine hit news stands, Oprah appeared on the Dr. Oz Talk Show. She's a natural in front of a crowd, so it wasn't a surprise to see her enjoying herself. There was even a time during the broadcast when she took time out to sip on a green health drink made of spinach, cucumbers, and celery. Besides sipping on the high fiber and low calorie mixture, Oprah shared some words of wisdom with Dr. Oz, the audience, a...

Posted by Nicole K. on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, In : Music 

Estelle is the woman with the Thank You song that has women thinking twice about mourning over a relationship gone bad. She sings, "I wanna thank you for making me a woman" in a tone that is really expressing her acceptance of the fact that she has to grow up in order to really claim her womanhood status. In "Thank You", her lyrics seem to lead down a road of pain with little doses of joy along the way. Here is Estelle dressed in green hells and a strapless evening dress, attending The Art o...

Exercise your expertise by introducing new ways to share the knowledge. Here are the pictures that I promised to provide on yesterday. I went back to the basics on these. I know you probably can remember when your teacher asked you to write a report and create a collage about your summer vacation. That was always so fun for me I know that you always hear me mention what I learned from my mother, but this is going to be a shocker. Some of my best reported stories that I shared with my teacher...

Advertising Cue Cards: Brand Education and Information-Part I

Posted by Nicole K. on Friday, January 20, 2012, In : Executive Minds 


Brand knowledge is a very important aspect of the selling game. If you want to sell products and keep people excited when new products hit the market, you have to actually believe in the products you sell. It's the mark of a good salesperson. Customers sometimes want to hear what you actually think about a product, when you are engaging in interaction before you close a sale. That's why taking the time to learn about your products is key. I've learned that every step along the way before the...

Angelina Jolie In Cream Versace at The Golden Globes

Posted by Nicole K. on Friday, January 20, 2012, In : Celebrities 


Bad girls can turn on their appeal in neutral colors and Angelina Jolie proved it at the Gloden Globes. How do you feel about white, creme and ivory? Creme and ivory are the type of colors that I consider to be safe and very soft. Creme is a very feminine color. There's a certain gentleness about it that is soothing and calming. Creme and ivory work well in fashion because they coordinate well with any color. Angelina Jolie wore cream with a little extra surprise for the skeptics who doubt t...

I've heard of taking Corporate America by storm, but some information I read recently made me think of moonlighting in a whole different way. Break down the barriers and limitations you put on yourself because the information that I will share with you today will change your life for the better or at least provide some entertainment.

How does that old saying go? I think I remember the phrase reading something like: Blonde's have more fun. That very saying is ringing true for a woman who is...

John Amos: Oprah Reunites the Cast of Roots

Our opinion leaders can be labeled as celebrities, hero's, mentors, or whatever you want to call them, but these are the people who are setting the trends and serving as a model in our society. Their behavior sends us messages and helps us to create an emotional connection with their story. What we see is who they are in the public eye. That's all we have to look at most times. If there is a message that we can get out of the entertainment provided to us, then their celebrity or popularity i...

By: Nicole K. Phillips

Like King, I want to express my victory over defeat, by living it as I achieve. My stride never changes because the mission is clear, so I just keep going

The American Dream is just over there, although, I can see it more clearly at times, It really just depends on where I'm standing to weather life's storms or where  I'm at enjoying the view of my sunshine

The breeze still feels the same, unless it turns to a heavy wind and it is on my back, then it helps me, by...

Paper, pens, and ideas, need to have a cute place to land as they come flying out of your cloud of thought. I've seen quite a few little journals up for sale at Barnes & Nobles that measure up in the cute category. However, the price tag and size can't compete with a collection of journals being offered under the Plan Ahead Brand. The Plan Ahead Jumbo Journals would surely be my first pick in any contest measuring style, affordability, and durability.  Take a look at this Jumbo Journal that ...

Dwight Howard: How You Do Those Impersonations?

Posted by Nicole K. on Thursday, January 12, 2012, In : Sports 


These days Dwight Howard is doing his best to play the game like only he could as the center/powerhouse of defense for the Orlando Magic. He has his own style of seriousness in the way he presents himself, but he also knows how to show a less serious side of his personality. How does he do it? First, he is not afraid to laugh or appear playful in front of a crowd. Behaving in such a way affects people in a positive way. For one, showing that type of attitude in public makes him more approach...

Food aversions are not unusual. There will always be at least one member of your family who can't seem to wrap their mouth around something everyone else loves. It's true, for the family chef (mama, grandma, poppa, or you yourself) it can be pretty disturbing or even downright insulting for someone to gag at the thought of something you actually slaved over a hot stove to prepare.

The most important thing for you to remember is that the nutritional value of your food choices is what rea...

What time is it and who are you wearing when you stare down at your wrist? To some it may seem shallow if you choose an expensive brand over more frugal less expensive varieties, but the most important thing is to choose your products because of quality and the way they make you feel. Good energy equals happy feelings. Right now, I can't recall anytime that I have shunned euphoria.

Well I guess Bristol Palin (Sara Palin's daugther) is not living by Lady Gaga's words. Gaga's song The Fame talks about living for the material, having a taste for champagne, and just living for the fame. The exact lyrics that grabbed me and shook my being were sung by the Born This Way Monster as follows: "All we care about is runway models, Cadillacs and liquor bottles, give me something, I wanna be, retro glamour Hollywood yes we live for the Fame, Doin' it for the Fame"....

Nicole Miller has officially given the word 2012 is a good year for sparkle effects. Sparkling in fashion can be shown in many forms, but it all really boils down to personal choice. Where can the sparkles appear? Let us count the way to show you the twinkle. Collars, belts, buttons, pockets, or sleeves can don the look of the sparkle. Having a glittery shimmer look throughout a fabric may be to much for some, but it really just adds flare. Sparkle or shimmer is not something that will overt...
