Just in time for the Halloween weekend, one of my favorites…. THRILLER! I watched this all the time growing up. I remember my sister used to be scared of it, so that added to the value as well. Of course I know parts of the dance and can never be still when the music is played. There hasn’t been anything like it and I don’t think there ever will. Have a Malicious But Delicious Halloween!by Latrice

Oprah is awesome and no one can deny that! On Tuesday, she received a very special award with special meaning. Five women who have helped shape women’s roles in law, business, volunteerism and politics during the past 30-plus years were honored before thousands at the final event of the Women’s Conference 2010, the Minerva Awards. The two-day conference was established in1985 and is now being helmed by California First Lady Maria Shriver to empower women to be ‘Architects of Change.’
Oprah encouraged men and women to cope with criticism, hardship and adversity by learning and summoning strength from within as well as friends, family, co-workers and loved ones. “Every time you get talked about, you turn your head and keep on strutting, and get a little stronger,” Oprah said. “What I know for sure is it isn’t enough to be powerful, but to know how to use that power whether within the home, neighborhood, school, workplace and elsewhere.”
Such an inspiration. Remember ladies, use your power for good. We’re all Dangerously Beautiful!by Latrice
This has to be one of my favorite times of the year. Autumn/Fall is the in between of summer and winter. Right before the holidays, right before it gets cold (in Miami that means 60 degrees) and time for autumn mix. Yummy! Candy corn used to be my favorite, but I think I ate too many growing up. But mixed up with Indian corn and pumpkins, the entire combo is delicious. I’m not into dressing up for Halloween, but I do look forward to eating Autumn Mix. What’s your favorite Halloween candy?by Latrice

I believe it’s safe to say that we have all had bad experiences at restaurants where kids were involved. I remember one time a kid came and took some french fries off my plate. Completely out of control! But are kids the real issue or are the parents. I understand that kids are going to act like kids. But lately it seems that things are getting out of hand.
Recently, there had been some controversy over a North Carolina restaurant’s new rules for not tolerating screaming children. Children are welcomed, but need to be removed if they disturb other guest. When I read that, I almost wanted to make a visit just so that I could eat in peace (I hope they don’t allow people to sing Happy Birthday either).
I’m all for kids going to eat at restaurants. It’s important that they are exposed to eating out and learning how to interact with others. The problem I find is that some aren’t being taught how to act when dining out. It’s not cute to watch your kids break things, scream to the top of their longs, or even throw food. That may be acceptable in your house, but shouldn’t be done in public.
I’ve been eating out my entire life and all it took was a look from my mom /dad or the good ole saying “Do I need to take you to the bathroom?” to rid the thought of doing something besides eating in a restaurant. What do you guys think about kids in restaurants?by Latrice
I remember looking forward to Friday nights to watch TGIF! Family Matters was one my favorite shows and Steve Urkel was my favorite character by far. I could probably posts tons of my favorite episodes, but that would be a bit obsessive. These are a couple of my favorites. What was your favorite episode?by Latrice
Recently I had a conversation with some women about men paying for dinner, movies, and whatnot. What was meant to be a nice little debate turned into a huge brawl. Oh boy. Maybe I’m too new school, but I don’t feel it should matter who pays as long as the vibe is right and everyone is having a good time. It seems to me that some women still have old fashion standards when it comes to dating when everything has really changed. I can’t believe that some women believe that a man doesn’t really love them if he can’t pay for everything. Long ago, the man paid for everything, but that’s because he worked and women didn’t. Now a days, women work just as much as men if not more. Hell we’re Dangerously Beautiful, we can do whatever we want!
I don’t understand how women can want to be so independent but expect men to pay for everything. I’m not saying that women should start paying for everything or that dates should always be dutch, but there’s nothing wrong with buying the popcorn at the movies every now and then. If relationships are supposed to be 50/50 and it’s all about give and take, how does that not apply when it comes to money. Ladies, I love to be wined and dined by my honey like everyone else, but I love to spoil him a bit too! I truly appreciate everything he does and it’s nice to show him that. I’m not encouraging taking care of no good men that will never do anything for you, but those that make the effort, give back a little. It goes a long way! What are your thoughts?by Latrice
I recently brought this CD on a trip to Atlanta. Road music! I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it soo much. I didn’t know what to expect since this is his first album. I really appreciate his carefree style and his ability to capture true feelings in a song. Like The Lazy Song, it sums exactly how I feel at times. Also, the 2 collaborations on the album are tight. There’s a reggae styled duet with Damien Marley and an awesome song with Cee Lo and B.O.B. (one of my favs of the entire CD!)
The only thing that I didn’t like about the album is that is only has 10 tracks (coming in right under 35 minutes). Albeit 10 very good songs, it kind of left me wanting more. Give us more Bruno! Check out his second single below Grenade which is actually the first single on the track. (Live version because video not made at this time). I love the lyrics! Let me know what you think.by Latrice
I loooove posting up new audio goodness on the Dangerously Beautiful blog. Andrea Lewis is a Canadian actress/singer (formerly of Degrassi: The Next Generation) with a great new project, 54321. What strikes me most about this collection of songs is how relatable and poignant the lyrics are. Of course the musical backgrounds are great and Ms. Lewis’ vocals soar over them amazingly. Check her out by downloading 54321 here.
