Dear Universe You Got Me?

I’ve been thinking for sometime now, well, maybe more like dreaming…

I can see myself on a tropical island slowly swinging back and forth, with the sound of a calming wave rolling up to the shoreline.

In the background holiday tunes are creating one smile after another, hey it’s Christmas and the world is full of joy and happiness.

“DEAR UNIVERSE YOU GOT ME”

Hello Love, you look spectacular tonight, and by the way I love your braids, Sooo he whispered in my ear.

How often do we dream, or should I say we manifest, or perhaps we experience a repeated version of DEJA VU…..

From Vision to Fruition

castano2 MR. and MRS. CASTANO

A power couple discussing their business of the day, as if no other human existed in the room. O’ but I was right there, paying close attention to all of the special moments during the “Baila Fuzion” Dance & Creative Arts Center’s grand opening.

Excitement filled the parking lot here in the oceanfront city of Virginia Beach, Va., happiness was the mood of the day for a beautiful couple birthing a five-year long business venture.

Community development through many avenues of education, services, youth and YES…adult classes, workshops, and dance training, will certainly be a very strong creative arts staple in the Virginia Beach area.

How to “WIN” my ❤

….show up and show out baby, can you grill? 

“A man who can cook is like getting a new pair of Red Bottoms, you can’t wait to tell everybody about them.”

Seriously, some men have a misguided idea of what I like, want and need in my life. Today, I’m here to set the record straight for my male associates who may be remotely interested in this tidbit of information.

Humor, laughter, and being able to laugh at one’s self, that my reader of the day is a mega plus in my book. Life is full of negative unhappy people who can’t seem to let adversity do what it needs to; while smiling in its ugly face!

I had a date last month who without hesitation, sat patiently and listened to an entire “Script” I recently wrote, that meant absolutely everything to me! I found it to be extremely sexy, almost orgasmic. A writer wants someone who is interested in sharing dialogue…..it matters not what the topic of convo is, as long as we are communicating.

So now you have the deets to win my heart ❤….what say you?

Boho Comfy and Cute

Something’s just stand out at first glance, like long strands of fresh sun kissed green ivey, surrounded by multiple flower-pot’s of healthy spider plants. Top that Bohemian combo with a comfy backyard hammock and you’ve got the perfect combination of what I like to refer to as my “ZEN-ZEN-ZENZY MOMENTS”.

Before the summer ends, I hope to have my own personal unique collection of Stone’s. You can feel the flow of energy from each individual stone, as if they all have a story to tell us about the journey it took to become a beautifully finished product.

I’M FEELING SO BOHO TODAY…

Cuteness Overload on every fashion level, some may think this outfit can’t possibly be Boho, Well…it screams street style, sexy, light and carefree, yet I see a day-time fun Boho-Chic vibe, giving us all the retro feels of the 1970’s.

Do You in Boho this Summer, I certainly intend to explore my whimsical side a bit more!

Broken Breath…

cathy flicker google

I inhaled your spirit 

one to many times

now 

I can’t breathe…

copyright @ Dakota Somerville

Oftentimes we forget to breathe in the love of our heavenly power, we forget to exhale the negativity spoken to us; sometimes on a daily basis. Remind yourself, you too can breathe a fresh new vibration without any hesitation. I was inspired this morning by a very simple, yet profound quote from pastor Joel Osteen.

If GOD had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.

Every human has encountered a season of broken breath along this journey called life, shhhhh….whisper and repeat….”I can breathe again”.

A Taste of Spring Review

spring1 CHEF PONDER

NETWORK makes the dream work, an old cliché I’ve heard many times before, and here’s another one for you, NO MAN is an island…so what exactly do those quotes mean. I like to think in terms of like-minded business professionals coming together to share, discuss, create, and throw around new ideas related to creating revenue or just mind swapping ideas to better their community.

spring2     spring3

Celebrity Chef Ponder and Dapper Luq hosted “A Taste of Spring”, on Saturday, April 7th at Stratford College, located in Virginia Beach, Va. It was a cold rainy night, with a strong breezy wind, yet everyone in attendance was pleasant and thoroughly enjoyable. Lot’s of networking took place, chit chats about massage therapy, upcoming modeling adventures, and changing the narrative of some African-American issues via community forums.

Every single morsel of food was beyond exquisite, my favorite of the night was the melt in your mouth crab cakes…I fell into a serious foodie coma.

CLASSY AND FOREVER SASSY……..

Vision Board Update

Positano Beach Italy has landed on my 2018 vision board as my new dream destination! 

One of the things I love the most about networking via social media is the daily opportunity to vicariously travel the globe with my followers.

Recently Laura, a U. S.  flight attendant posted the most breathtaking photos of her trip to Positano, Italy. I somehow managed to fall madly in love with each and every capture.

The hillside architecture magnificently wraps it’s arm’s around the oceanfront like a mother holding her young baby.

I can see myself standing in this lovely churchyard, coffee in hand, screaming Ciao lovebugs.

Sweet Saturday Conversation

Screenshot_2018-03-17-16-55-05

The excitement in knowing I got you…

It may only seem to be a smile or a simple stare, but the thrill deep in my soul tells a story unknown to others.

Our love vibe transcends the deepest level of mental comprehension it beats in another dimension. When I look your way, I feel safe, I feel secure and I feel loved.

My mind freely imagines the touch of our fingers ever so slowly repeatedly drawing heart shapes upon each others backs, I smile with anticipation, I kiss with urgency, and then I whisper sweet dirty girl truths.

Sweet Saturday Conversation, a glass of red wine with you, is the epitome of life accentuated in moments we both shall forever cherish.

Healthy Spring Mindset

Four More Days till Spring arrives….

Are you mentally ready to put in the work it takes to get that sculpted spring body? It all begins on your plate dear lovebugs, what you put into your body is exactly what builds the groundwork for your spring fling results.

I have work to do, beginning with my thought process on healthy spring eating. For the last month or so my focus has been centered on self care, self love and manifesting my woo!!

You know that ahh-ha moment when you attend a big event and folks haven’t seen you in a while, because you’ve been hibernating inside the crib avoiding the winter month’s…that is when you bring your best woo! followed by the infamous cliche “girl you look damn good”.

I’m ready; mind, body and soul all in with small meal portions, healthy salads, mindset change, low impact workouts and a lovely vision of moi in a pink-hott pink two piece swimsuit.

A Well Dressed Valentine

Screenshot_2018-02-05-12-41-38

……Mr. Jared J. Howe in all his eclectic glory

First of all what do you see? Are you captivated by the glow of love that permeates from every angle?

A well dressed Valentine may be only a far-reaching dream to some, yet for others, he’s just the cool guy who lives next door. Effort has always been sexy, a well-groomed bearded gentleman who can wear red like this deserves all the two snaps and hand claps, from any fashion critique.

The glass reflections give an amazing hue of every tone, every color reaching out on a universal vibe of love me, love me long time…for the writer in me, I find this photo to be extremely poetic, somewhat magical in still form, like a special “Valentine” should be!!!
