Behind the Scenes – Weekly Rap


Ah the magic of video production…

Stopped by Columbus Circle to watch the 2nd taping of Weekly Rap. Hosted by Buttah Man (@I_am_Buttahman) and filmed by the NBRHD crew. The panel included Egypt (@EgyptSherrod), Datwon (@daydog) VIBE, Dru Ha (@druha) and Damien Lemon (@dlemoncomedy).

Everything from Obama to Breezy, the panel had lots to say and even more to Tweet.

A new candy store popped up in the neighborhood!  Stark white and full of delicious Swedish treats. The staff is friendly and the selection is amazing. I tried a little bit of every piece and my bill came to $3.68.  My favorite is the Cola Snake, the square marshmellows and coconut clusters.  I will be back for sure. *sweet & swedish*

GMO free ingredients is very important and a great unique selling point. Being just down the street is also wonderful 🙂 Just to quench my candy cravings this summer. Sweet!

Cetaphil Face Cleanser


I swear by this stuff. I’m talking about the Cetaphil Gentle Face Cleanser. Really lame story of how I discovered Cetaphil but I’ll tell it anyway. So a few years ago probably at least 5 years ago I’d say? I was reading on Seventeen mag’s website’s Beauty Tips. There was a feature asking models about their skin care routine and a few of the girls mentioned Cetaphil so I decided to try it. BEST PURCHASE EVER!

Cetaphil for sensitive skin is like a gel and does NOT foam. It’s super smooth, has no scent, and its great for all skin types even safe enough to use on babies. Makes your skin SO soft. I even use it as a makeup remover around my eyes. It doesn’t irritate my eyes like a lot of makeup removers do.

I used to have pretty bad skin. Horrid blemishes. After using Cetaphil my skin started clearing up. I really do swear by this stuff. If you’ve been jumping cleanser to cleanser try this one! Its less than $15 depending where you get it and its a huge bottle that’ll last you a long time.


xo, June 🙂

Pacific Natural Foods

I eat out more than anyone I know, I am at the favorite restaurants at least 3 times a week. I do love to cook at home and this weekend I am going in!  The key to making a good meal is to not wait til you are starving to start cooking.  I want to be involved with my food but I can’t be peeling carrots and washing mushrooms. I am a busy girl. The perfect solution of busy city folks like myself – a little bit short on seasoning and time but want that full flavor goodness.  Last month I tried Pacific Natural Foods at a trade show and discovered these.  Condensed cream soups that can be an easy lunch, a beautiful side for a panini or even poured over pasta for a quick movie ‘date nite’ thing.

These are perfect for smoothies and they don’t have to refrigerated until you open them. You guys already know that I am a smoothie fanatic!  Here are some of my favorite recipes here.  I am going to make all sorts of concoctions with all the goodies they sent me.  The hazelnut milk is out of this world!  Yummm with Bailey’s anyone?  You can get Pacific Natural Foods at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and fine natural food stores.  Read the labels, you will smile.
