Lately, I've been playing around trying new facial and shaving products to see what actually works and what doesn't. When I was younger, I used to use Clearasil for acne and a fresh looking face. I then started to move over to Aveeno products and I find the lotion is very thick for my skin, it was like I had an extra piece of clothing material on me lol. The shaving products for Aveeno are pretty good though, shaves smoothly. Now, I'm on Neutrogena and it's about to be my first week using the products such as; Face Scrub, Post Shave Lotion, and Shave Cream. I'm trying not to use all of the products at once on my one face, because I want to see how the stuff works. So far, so good when washing, but it's only been a week so I have to see another week. I suffer from really bad oily shiny skin and i'm deeply trying to change this effect now especially during the summer. Do you suggest any products? What do you use to clean your face? What shaving products are you well into?
I don't know if you know, but i'm not a big alcoholic drinker. I tend to go for drinks where I don't taste the alcohol as much. Recently, my BFF as you all should know by now, made herself a delicious drink that contained some type of alcohol and orange juice called a Mimosa. I never had it in my life and when I tasted it I felt this had to be my new favorite alcoholic beverage. You can barely taste the alcohol in it. It's like Orange Juice Cider lol. I still love Strawberry Daiquiri's and Tequila slush drinks but right now all the praise goes to the Mimosa. Have you ever tried it before? What's your favorite alcoholic beverage?
Not even 24 hours ago, Beyonce performed her new debut single 1+1 for millions to hear on last nights, American Idol season 10 finale. The song which is a spectacular love ballad where she sings about the POWER of what LOVE can do to someone. Of course we all know she's lovingly talking about her other half/husband rapper Jay-Z. This song has taking love songs to a whole other level. I believe the song is a mix between Dangerously In love and Satellites. 1+1 may not have as much words as both songs, but the short verse metaphors Beyonce uses to describe how she's feeling is incredibly indescribable. You can listen to the song below and after the jump check out the lyrics. The song of course is available to purchase on iTunes as well as pre-ordering her forthcoming album "4".

I was browsing through Kourtney Kardashian's blog, when she wrote a blog about this boy who's YouTube videos are a conversation piece. I mean, I was in laughter just watching his videos. I wasn't laughing to make fun, but his antics are hilarious. I love seeing talent like this on YouTube. Here's one that will make you smile and laugh.

All I have to say is NOW I UNDERSTAND. I'm understanding where Beyonce is going with her new sound and her new music. Her recent single "Run The World (Girls)" is up and down on the iTunes chart but a hit on the radio waves. I wasn't too fond of the song but it grew on me. I didn't know where Beyonce was going at all with her new material and image at all. Once I kept hearing of talk about "Revolution" and a song about "Women Empowerment", it then clicked it my head; Beyonce was growing up as an artist.
The Kardashians never seem to bore people with their personal home videos off of filming their hit reality shows. The two youngest girls in the family; Kendall and Kylie Jenner are known for their entertaining YouTube videos. Over the weekend, the two uploaded their own family music video to the hit Katy Perry song "E.T.". The personal video was shot when the family went on vacation to Mexico for Kourtneys' birthday. The video is so cute and funny, you also get to see little baby Mason join the gang as he sings along to the song. Everyone looked so beautiful and good. My favorite part of the video is when they filmed Khloe's gorgeous shiny jeweled shoe. I don't know the designer but WHOA! those shoes were BAD.COM! lol. Enough of me talking, take a look at the video after the jump and let me know what you think.
The time has finally arrived, Lady Gaga has released her long awaited sophomore album entitled "Born This Way". There are two versions you can purchase, the original album or the deluxe album which includes a few new songs and remixes to the top charting songs such as: "Born This Way", "Judas", "Marry The Night" and more. If you are a big Lady Gaga fan, I suggest you go large and get the deluxe, if you are a person who can't seem to handle more than 10 sounds then I suggest you get the original album. What I suggest is the deluxe though. You can purchase the outlet at more than one reliable download website or just pick up a hard copy at your local CD retailer store. GO OUT AND GET THE ALBUM! Gaga deserves all your support. How much do we love Lady Gaga? Her music is super dope!!!

Today is Throwback Friday, and I had to really pull a throwback video from the late 90's early 00's. Everyone has to remember Lil' Wayne when he was much younger and he started off in the rap group Cash Money Millionaires. I was the biggest Lil' Wayne fan then and i'm still a fan of his music today. I might not know a lot of the songs he has put out now, but when he first came out, you couldn't tell me nothing lol. The Throwback Friday song is "Tha Block Is Hot". Lil' Wayne was so young and his lyrical flow was just the illest. I hope everyone enjoys the video. Were you a fan of Lil' Wayne then and are you still a fan now? Let me know.

Chris Brown just released his 4th video off his "F.A.M.E." album entitled "Should've Kissed You". This is one of my favorite songs off of the album, I thought he wasn't going to film a video for it, but I'm glad he did. Everyone enjoy =). This video is remarkably beautiful. Who doesn't love Chris Brown's creative mind and soulful voice on a slow track?
What Do You Think Of The Video?
Everyone remembers the family sitcom "The Cosby Show" right? Well, if you don't then you haven't lived until you watched an episode of the hilarious, and fun loving African-American family. Everyone wanted to have a family just like them. The show starred the funny respectable Bill Cosby (Cliff Huxtable), beauty legend Phylicia Rashad (Clair Huxtable), the adorable Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy Huxtable), the eclectic Lisa Bonet (Denise Huxtable), mr. too cool for himself Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Theo Huxtable) and the charming Tempestt Bledsoe (Vanessa Huxtable). The show also had big incredible cast members along the way but the first season's episodes were the best. The show began in 1984, I wasn't even born yet and ended with their 8th season in 1992. I was only born in 1989, but with the re-runs that I watched I couldn't help but to become a Huxtable.
A favorite episode of mine and my friend Ebony Russell is "A Shirt Story". This is the second episode to the first season where Theo goes on a double date with his friends and his date is the hottest girl in school; so trying to impress the girl Christine, Theo goes out and buys a $95 popular name brand apparel shirt. Cliff is outraged when he finds out that Theo has paid $95 for a simple shirt and demands Theo take the shirt back for an exchange shirt costing $30 or less. Meanwhile, Theo tells Denise about his catastrophe and she insists that she can sew an exact replica of the shirt.
I'm not going to tell the whole episode you'll just have to watch and see for yourself how the story plays out. I will say this episode will have you laughing until tears come out of your eyes lol. Thanks To YouTube, luckily I've found the episode so I can share it with you. Take A look. For Parts 2&3 View after the jump.

The video we all have been waiting for has now arrived. Everyone I introduce you to Beyonce's "Run The World (Girls)" music video.
How Did You Like It?
|Did I Have To Be So Cheesy? Lol|
|A Bad Cowboy W/ Jordans And A Smile|
I found these pictures of myself when I was little. I truly adore my young at age pictures, my mother dressed me quite well shall I say lol. When I come across more pictures i'll be sure to add them up here for you all to see. How cute was I though?
little Girl BIG Voice; Oh' how we love this Pussycat Doll's vocals.
Thank You Necole Bitchie.
I don't know if you all heard about the major talk all over the internet about the recent 2011 BET Award Nominations, but it is causing major ruckus. I had to see for myself what they were talking about and now I can agree. The categories and artists are thrown in every which way. I mean i'm not in the music business or I don't know how they do the picking, but if they artists are going to be chosen for awards they should be picked on all fairness; I don't think any fairness was done completely. If you haven't took a look at the nominees you can visit Necole Bitchie's blog site for the full lineup. I am not pleased at all. What do you think?

A lot of buzz has been generating the internet with the thoughts of when Beyonce was going to release the video for her new single "Who Run The World (Girls)" for her forthcoming album entitled "4". Well, Beyonce has been pushing back the release date and it seems like Beyonce hasn't been promoting the song in anyway shape or form. The song has been getting a lot of good and bad reviews, but it's up to Beyonce and her music video for it to change people's mind.
Well, from the looks of it, the video will be hot.com if she actually does the dances she did when she performed the song for the first time at Oprah's Farewell Finale Show yesterday evening. Beyonce, was on que and point with the vocals and choreo performing the song for Oprah and 20,000 people in Chicago. I might not have the complete performance, but thanks to Necole Bitchie (a highly publicized celebrity blogger) we have two videos on the performance. I must say once again, if the video looks like how she was performing, I think this song will sky rocket during the summer and will be another number one hit under Beyonce's belt. Take a look at the 23 sec. video and then the minute and 49 sec. video after the jump.
A friend of mine and upcoming rapper from Newark, New Jersey goes by the name of Tsu Surf recently sat down with SmashBlockTV.Com to talk about his upcoming mixtape, rap battles, his presence on the rap game and etc. I'm impressed on how big his success is right now in his life. Tsu Surf is getting known in his area and outside of his area. I enjoy listening to his tracks and so will you. His lyrical flow is without a doubt DOPE AS HELL! This kid grinds hard day and night making productive music. His awaited mixtape "Surfs Up Vol. 1" will be available to the public May 21st, but you can pre-order your copy now on iTunes. The link will be posted after the jump, but meanwhile get familiar with Tsu Surf and listen with your own ears on how dope this lyricist is.
The past five days it has been raining cats and dogs. I can't get with this gloomy weather. It has done nothing but made me feel lazy, tired, and hungry all the time lol. Well today is Wishful Wednesday; we are almost done with the week. I love the rain and I love the Spring season, but there are some flaws when both are mixed together. I love when it rains, because the pollen goes away, but when it rains, I'm forced to wear boots and not look my best in the rain. I know this is random, but wouldn't it be great to live in New York City while it's raining? lol. Anywho, my Wishful Wednesday wish is...

Reality TV is so addicting now a days. I seriously need to watch something else. I can't seem to change my favorite channels off of Reality TV shows, whether it's celebrity reality shows, documentary shows, game shows, etc. Reality TV has become my addiction and go to when i'm bored and need funny entertainment. Don't judge me by my list of favorite shows lol. It was hard to choose but here are my Top 5 Reality Shows.

My BFF in the whole wide world, words really can't express how happy I am for you. I love you with all my heart. Who knew seven years ago we would really become the best of friends? It was all in GOD's plan. I must say you are one hell of a best friend. We been through everything together so far and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us. I've been with you through you lows and you've been with me through my lows. I thank God for blessing me with a beautiful, intelligent, smart, educated and funny friend. Not only are you my best friend, you have become family to me; a little sister (WHAT?!). You know my family and I know your family well. I love each and every moment when we're together, there are days when I'm by myself I wish you were by my side. No one can make my days filled with joy but you! Even though no one won't understand the friendship we have, they think we're only playing but we are serious and i'm so glad we have a lot in common. You learn me and I learn you sometimes, but you can learn me all the time now that you have your MOTHER LOVIN' DEGREE (pronounced Dagruh)! I'm actually stuck at the table writing this with tears in my eyes because I'm so happy for the woman you've become and how amazing your life will be in the future. I can go on for days about all the things that we do and talk about and how I enjoy each and every moment of it. Thank you for just being there for me, loving me for who I am and lending a helping hand at times when I needed help. You inspire me to do better in life and I look up to you. Right now, if I didn't have you in my life I'd be a miserable soul; I wouldn't want to see the light of day.
"Friends are there through thick and thin
Well I've been told that
And I believe that it's automatic

Cuz I'm your sister and always for ya and I don't know" -Brandy (Best Friend)
"If you're lonely
And need a friend
And troubles seem like
They never end
To keep the faith
And love will be there
To light the way" - Mariah Carey (Best Friend)

I can't wait to see what our future looks like when we are old and we laugh at all the times we've shared good and bad. Thank you for everything, I got your back through any and everything. You will have my support in everything you do. That's what friends are for. I know you hate reading a lot and I hate writing a lot lol you already know how I feel about you. I should have written this in a card. I feel bad at times when Christmas and your birthday come around and I can't get you a gift; especially your graduation, times are hard but know when I become famous, my earnings (happiness) will be shared with you too. We can take trips to across the world to better our geography knowledge! Okay! I can go on for days...
I LOVE YOU BRITANY M. MARTIN, THANKS FOR BEING MY BEST FRIEND FOR THE PAST SEVEN YEARS AND FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! I'M SO PROUD OF YOU! HEY GIRL!!!!!!!
LOVE, LATROY M. WATSON
(I would post the pic of us together at your graduation; but I look black, fat and ugly!)
Yesterday was the big day. It was a big day for all the seniors at Rutgers University who were graduating that day. I attended my first college graduation ever and it happened to be my BFF's graduation. Britany graduated Rutgers University in the misty rain with honors =). A lot of her family and myself showed support with love that was out of this world. The two hour ceremony went by quick if you ask me. I teared before Britany even sat in her seat. The musical performance of the Alma Mater performed by Rutgers University Glee Club was hilariously cute.There was also a brilliant given speech by American Author and Writer Toni Morrison; It was such an emotional day for everyone.
Graduating college is a once in a lifetime event for ones memory and life. Not everyone can graduate college due to personal reasons or they don't have the fundings for it. That's why a college graduation is very important to people throughout the world. It takes hard work and dedication to graduate college on time. Britany transferred schools after her sophomore year of college and still graduated on time with honors. Her major is Criminal Justice with a minor of Political Science. Congrats to all the graduates of Rutgers University; Undergrad and Graduate, I wish you the best of luck on your future endeavors.
Rutgers University's Douglass campus had a separate graduation for those who stayed on the campus the whole school year. It was mostly girls, but my BFF was one of those college grads who stayed on Douglass campus. Britany's family and I attended the early grey skied ceremony in all cheerful and happiness for Britany. The ceremony was beautiful and done with class. It was so exciting to hear my BFF's name get called across the stage and I yelled non stop cheering her on. We then went to eat at a Chinese Buffet restaurant and the day couldn't get any funnier. I LOVE YOU Britany, thanks for inviting me to your special day! I took some pictures of her family and with Britany. Enjoy =) PS. Thanks To Bessy(Kiyesha) for bringing some Gummy Bears to hold me down throughout the ceremony. Gummy Bears are my favorite =)
The past five days have been pretty hectic. Not just for me but for my BFF Britany who just graduated from college. Britany graduated from Rutgers University with honors and she had three graduation ceremonies to attend to within the past five days. The first of her three ceremonies was the Black and Latino called "Rites Of Passage". Not only did Britany attend "Rites Of Passage" but also her line sisters of The Iota Sweetheart Auxiliary organization; Odalis Avant and Katheena Henriquez. Congratulations Dolls!

It seems like all i'm cool with are DJ's & Rappers; well thats because we have something in common and thats the love for music. I mean you can't but be cool with the DJ's, they play our favorite songs at clubs, parties, lounges and etc. I know this one DJ who is making moves all over northern New Jersey. He goes by the name of DJ Nakeem. I haven't been to one of his parties where he DJ's at but I hear his music mixes on mix cd's and on videos off of YouTube. I gotta say this young kid is pretty dope!
DJ Nakeem, is expanding his brand by creating "@DJ_Nakeem" t-shirts and selling them to his most loyal supporters and fans. The shirts aren't on sale yet, but he did mention to me he'll be giving some free ones out to the people that come to the places where he DJ's at so be the first to get your free @DJ_Nakeem shirt!
Take a look at the t-shirt after the jump.
The other day, I came across my friend Ryan's FaceBook page and saw a link to a YouTube video. Being the nosey person I am, I clicked the link and there was a short film entitled All The Lights, Short Film. The video is made by his two friends Joel Painson and Jarred McGriee, based on a skit about a guy having a seizure every time when see he sees flashing lights. The video however is not set out to make fun of those who suffer from seizures. This video was however to make fun of the Kanye West drama where people found his video for All of the Lights causing some people to have seizures and what not.I enjoyed the video it was brilliantly done well. I laughed throughout the whole video. It was DOPE.COM! I don't want to give the whole video away, you'll just have to watch yourself. Take A Look:
Today is Tasty Tuesday, today is where I bring you the best of the best foods out in the world. I was feeling for some broccoli lately and I knew I just couldn't eat it by itself. I searched my favorite food website The Food Network and found the most delicious dish. "Chicken Broccoli Alfredo" is the name of the dish with the likes of noodles, broccoli and cut up chicken breasts. This recipe is courtesy given to The Food Network and myself by Campbells. Thank You So Much. Bon' Appetite'!

Today was the last the day of Spring 2011 classes at UCC (Union County College). Thank GOD this semester is over with, I have been stressing a lot; I still am kind of. I must say it was a pleasure sharing a class with so many different people and some I've got to connect to. I'm always making friends in my classes and I believe in making more as I continue my years in college. Thanks to the wonderful professors this semester, without their push and motivation I don't think I could've done it. I just have two finals this week, everyone please wish me well =).

Throwback Friday is dedicated to one of my favorite movies of all time "The Lion King".You can often hear me sing some of the songs off the soundtrack. This movie had to come out when I was 5 years old. It's shocking to me still that I know all the words from the movie and I completely have the soundtrack in my iTunes library. My favorite part of the movie is the beginning where Simba is just born and to celebrate his birth, all the animals in the kingdom come together as one to show their love for the new cub who is soon going to be king of the pride lands. This part they also play the intro song to the movie entitled "Circle of Life". Words cannot express how much I love this movie! Enjoy the video and have a great weekend =)

Today is Cinco De Mayo and the festivities are still going on strong, but what are you going to do tonight? Well, if you don't know what to do then I suggest you take your ASS to WildBull. Wildbull is a club/lounge based in Paterson, New Jersey and the biggest thing about this event is that it's going to be CRAZY!
You have a good lineup of DJ's that are going to be bumping your favorite hits. The only DJ I know from tonights event is DJ SHY; a close friend of mine since middle school. I've been to a couple of parties where he has DJ'd at and he never disappoints when he's on the 1s and 2s. This guy plays a little bit of everything. This is a 18 and up event, so come correct or don't come at all. There will be drinks served of course for the 21 and up. Specials all night long and who know's maybe you'll get you a number or two lol. Another best thing about tonights party is the low cost:
Everyone $5 before 11:00 P.M.
Ladies with heels $3 before 10:30 P.M.
Can't Beat That!!!
So if you don't have anything planned this Cinco De Mayo holiday or don't know where to finish the festivities then go over to Wildbull and have one hell of a time! For More Information Check The Flyer!
Saying "I Love You" in a relationship can be a pretty BIG thing. Love itself is a very strong word. Nowadays, people throw the word around like a bag of pennies. I'm not saying Love is bad thing, but when it comes to relationships you have to know when is the right time to say I Love You to your significant other. One shouldn't play around with the four letter word. If someone says they LOVE you, you want to know if it's for all the right reasons and not the wrong.
Most of us have been down that road where we were in a relationship and our boyfriend/girlfriend told us they Loved us. We stayed content and happy until something bad happens; cheating, betrayal, and lack of trust comes along. Then there's the bad breakup; your heart is broken to pieces. How can you trust someone who say's they Love you and then have them cause the relationship to go sour?
To All My Wonderful Mexican Friends And Blog Viewers
HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!!!
For those who want to celebrate or try to celebrate this joyful festive day there is an instructional video after the jump =) Enjoy, Be Safe!!!
I don't know about you, but I know about me and what makes me smile and laugh are those talented kids off the Kidz Bop commercials. Kidz Bop has been out since the late 90s; it's where kids and tweens take popular songs that are out now and do their own kids version to them. The beat will stay the same but you can sometimes catch some of the words mixed around if it's an explicit song lol. I just recently found out that they actually had music videos for their songs. Kidz Bop probably has to own around 80 cd's that include all the hits in the world. Their versions are sometimes always better than the originals if you ask me =). Take a look at some of the music videos and have you ever ordered a Kidz Bop cd before?

I'm just waiting for these twins to come out with a book on how they got to their status of TODAY!Many of us know these two girls as Michelle Tanner off of the hit family comedy series "Full House", but to themselves they are Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. These are two American actresses who built an empire since the age of 6months. At the current age of 24, the duo are worth an estimate of $100 million dollars. Can somebody say WOW! Just at the age of 24. I'm 22 years of age and I do not even own a "WORTH" next to my domain.
Can't find anything to do this coming Cinco De Mayo (5th of May)? Well, why not come party at Luna Lounge with the sounds of DJ Nasty. This Thursday is Cinco De Mayo, I quite do not understand the holiday yet, but all I know is that everyone celebrates it everywhere having one heck of a day. A friend (Mr. Hoodstar) on Twitter sent me the party flyer and I thought hey why not promote the party for those who are undecided about what to do on Cinco De Mayo.
Luna Lounge is a cool Lounge based in New Jersey with upscale drinks and friendly going people. I've been to Luna Lounge about four times and I've never had a dull moment. The atmosphere is so dope you are bound to feel like you're at a celebrity event. So if you don't have anything planned for Cinco De Mayo, then come out to Luna Lounge and have a night to remember or forget lol.
For more information you can hit up Mr. Hoodstar himself via his Twitter @ItsMrHoodstar or simply Tweet @LunaLounge
Happy Cinco De Mayo!!!
It was reported yesterday evening USA terrorist Osama Bin Laden has been shot and killed by the US military. President Obama's announcement made the earth stand still for 15 minutes. Osama Bin Laden is the man who was the Al Queda leader who killed thousands of innocent peoples lives on 9/11. Ever since 2001 he was gone missing and hard to track until now. I don't know how they found this guy, but if you ask me I can't even find Waldo so I gave up on Osama a long time ago.
