Hey all you LifePulsers!
As LifePulse’s brand new resident foodie, I am thrilled to bring you tips, tricks and information about all things related to cooking, dining and entertaining. Watch for my column every Tuesday (1 day late due to the boss coming back from vaca today) for delicious recipes and entertaining ideas, for the sophisticated urbanite.
See today’s recipe below
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth. ~Oscar Wilde
Honesty has been losing to lies for some time and now many find it hard to discern the truth from fiction. I truly believe we all lie but we tread dangerously when we lie to ourselves and worst off believe it. How did we get here?
I was thinking of what to write for my Monday daily rant as I struggled to remove Bahamian sand (which is more like fine crushed sea shell fragments than actual sand) from my shorts as I started packing to return to the city I love and the daily grind. I thought of the time I had here, the rest and the company of old friends I was blessed with and began to think about how I arrived here. It was a last minute trip that is sure to cause some belt tightening when I get home, but why did I get on a plane again. I had been back for barely a month from my last trip and yet I was tired.
My mind shifted to work, the on again off again relationships, office politics, gossip, competition and it was instantly clear; its the incessant lying that had me drained (My previous trip was a work mission and didn’t provide the full reboot necessary). I was raised by African and Caribbean parents, both of which were not into gossip or bullsh*t, yet lately I find myself immersed in it. It is a powerful fertilizer that permeates much of the entertainment industry. I expect and can tolerate dishonesty in entertainment, it is necessary there but now it is in vogue to be a liar in day to day interaction.

Hot off the success of her new sexy image, Kelly is ready to drop another steamy video. Lets make sure not to make it look forced. So far her second single is not doing it for me.
Prediction time, I think T-Pain is going out of the park with this one. I love the song and with the clever use of the Lily Allen sample, I believe top 40 radio and video stations rinse this single. The song will appear on Pain’s next album rEVOLVEr. Hope you like it because you will be hearing it a lot. Below is a behind the scenes look at the making of the video.
Well I arrived at my decade long friend’s, 5 min away from the beach, apartment only to realize he has lightening flash internet! Back like I never left people and the fresh air, with the hot sun kissed by the summer breeze is a perfect stress free escape. Now I have seen some eye candy and found a video that embodies the search for all natural beauties. See what I am talking about below.
Timbaland and Pitbull put this one together in support of Raphael Mazzucco and Jimmy Iovine’s new book Culo by Mazzucco. The book will feature photos of only the finest derrieres on the earth. GQ has more details on Culo. – MISS INFO
And now the visuals.
I definitely like the idea better than the song but whatever, I’m in a good mood right now.
See you soon Toronto. Summer wasn’t long enough for me and I needed to clear my head so the boss is off. Enjoy! See you guys in a week.
I’m feeling the new music coming from Wolf and this video is dope. Check it out.
Oh Canada your just perfect! Newsweek has conducted a global study and the result is a ranking of the best (and consequently the worst) places for women to live in the world only bested by Ireland and Sweden. A CNN anchor was surprised to discover that America only ranked 8th on the list. Canadians feel proud, our women are represented and representing us well. God knows I love you ladies. Cheers to you and your amazingness; VERSE loves you!
This is what Newseek had to say of their study.
We examined five measures that affect women’s lives. Of 165 countries, these 10 earned top marks in factors from health care to political power. We graded each country on 5 factors, using a scale of 1 to 100
Laws protecting women from domestic violence, adolescent marriage and marital rape, and also women’s access to land and bank loans
Includes rates of maternal death, HIV, and infant mortality, and also access to safe abortions and skilled health workers
Education level, literacy, and gender parity in schools
Includes percentage of women in the labor force, gender pay gap, access to all industries, ability to climb the ladder
Share of women in government, including senior positions

Life is good, especially in Canada!
