What’s your drug?? [written by @koffeeb] #YesMerch
Just admit it, social media has a way of controlling your life on what you do, how you do it, and leaves you with the question of how can you capture it to show the world. I view social media as a drug and the one that gets me higher than the rest is instagram. Each site serves its purpose. So, let’s break down the four most used social media sites. Facebook is the safe zone, strictly for friends, family, coworkers and your mom’s friends Lol. Instagram (IG for short) is for pictures that you dare not put on Facebook and where anybody, who has enough pictures proving who they really are, can follow you. Next we have twitter. I view twitter as a place where you can be connected with your favorite celebrities and say ANYTHING your little heart desires. And last but not least, Vine. Vine is seven seconds of… Well anything you can fit in seven seconds and I think that’s what makes it so great. People do whole skits, songs, movies, you name it, and dedicated Viners know how to get it done! All in all, social media is a great way to express yourself.
So, what’s your drug of choice?
#MusicMonday: By Any Means - Kevin Gates [written by @WahlaSmalls]
Social media is a blessing and a curse at the same time. It doesn’t take no time for a video and/or picture to go viral now a days and depending on the content it can have a positive effect or an ignorant one. Recently, Louisiana rapper, Kevin Gates, instagram video went viral of him speaking of his specific sexual activities. What people are not focusing on is the musical talent and intellect of Kevin Gates.
Sway in the morning with Kevin Gates [http://goo.gl/mHLzZI ]
Kevin has a very interesting past that he openly shares within his music and interviews [http://goo.gl/450Naj]. From being a two time convicted felon, receiving his Masters in Psychology in prison and having two kids a week apart Kevin’s life is a “Movie” as he describes on his mixtape, “By Any Means”. According to dictionary.com “Passion” is a “strong amorous feeling or desire; love”, Kevin brings to life the definition within his music. He’s aggressive with his message, but it’s genuine. You have to respect someone who is very open to vulnerability and embraces their flaws, characteristics not found in too many rap artist. Get to know the man behind the Instagram/vine/Facebook/Twitter meme’s and download his mixtape “By Any Means” http://www.datpiff.com/Kevin-Gates-By-Any-Means-mixtape.585535.html
GET UP! Let’s work out! #YesMerch [written by @KoffeeB] #YesMerch
Whether you are working out for fun or working out to get healthier, I wanna remind you to workout to LIVE! Working out can lower stress, lower your blood sugar and possibly cure diabetes. I personally workout for all these reasons. After being diagnosed with high blood pressure and diabetes at the age of 25, the severity didn’t hit me till 3years later. Not taking my meds, always being sick and having headaches is really no fun. With working out, being on a regulated diet and taking my meds properly I have lowered my blood pressure. On top of that I’m 53lbs down! I joined JoiWithFitness in Zion, IL which offers Zumba, Piloxing, Boot Camp, stepping classes and more. She makes getting in shape fun! So if you are ready to live, start today! Peace!
#SavorTheFlavor: Puerto Rico Comida [by: @De_Misha]
I had the pleasure of visiting San Juan, Puerto Rico this past weekend and I must say….Amazing!!!! Beautiful, sunshine, and great food. If you’re ever in the area and a seafood lover such as myself, I recommend you visit the the restaurant Genesis located in Old San Juan. The dish to try is the Seafood Paella…its Spanish rice with lobster, shrimp, and a white fish tossed with cilantro… Yummmm! Did I say Awesome!!! A must try.
You may thinking “I’m not visiting Puerto Rico no time soon!” Don’t fret! I got just the place for you here in Chicago, “Havana’s” located on 412 N. Clark St. Their known for their Latin Cuisine and Cuban flare and their Paella Combo will definitely have you revisiting because I sure do!

Congrats to Brandy today for becoming an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
With all the reality shows crowding cable television, it’s no wonder as to why millions have added netflix to their life. With original series such as Orange is the New Black and shows that you might have heard about but never watched, netflix is quickly becoming the “Go To” for entertainment. Soon, will cable TV be a need? Well probably, the drama and suspense that reality TV delivers needs not to be duplicated pass cable television. Head over to Netflix and catch up on shows or try something new! If you are up on Netflix,

this is rape culture, and it has got to stop. stay strong jada.
This is so incredibly disgusting. My heart breaks for this girl.
I am ashamed.
Black girls must be protected at all cost. By any means necessary.
So people were distributing child porn and nobody is in jail right now?
Protect this girl. And get the perpetrators thrown under the jail.
she is so brave for speaking out
THIS IS NOT OK!
