Patra aka Dorothy Smith was a reggae artists in the 90′s. She was known for songs such as “Worker Man”, “Romantic Call” and “Queen Of The Pack”. I swear when I was a teenager between her and Janet in “Poetic Justice”, I wanted those long doodoo braids so bad, lol. Patra seemed to have disappeared off the face of the earth after her second album. She attempted to make a comeback with her 3rd release entitled “The Great Escape” in 2003. Also, in 2005 with “Where I’ve Been”-*crickets*……..ummmmm, yea
Anyhoo….I did a little research to try to find out what she’s been up to these days. I wasn’t too successful, but was able to get a little something…. whamp whamp. Dorothy is now living in the Bahamas recording her 5th studio album “Changes”….Good luck with that one mama, at least we’ll always have Romantical Call! That was my SONG
Tank remade one of my favorite songs which was originally sung by Bonnie Raitt. I believe he gets two thumbs up from me on this one!!! He definitely does it justice I must say
HERE IS BONNIE’S VERSION….
I am an accessory whore, lol:) Necklaces, rings, bracelets…I love it all! These are my latest goodies that I picked up at great prices too! My old school “Virgo” necklace, gold rosary and this sick ring.
Over the weekend one of my bff’s Kelly celebrated her birthday with an 80′s/ 90′s inspired party. We had a BLAST…not only was it fun to get down to my favorite old school tunes. It was also fun to see everyone dressed up in their outfits…too cute! Everything from airburshed tee’s, lace, chuck taylors, rope chains, off the shoulder sweaters, side ponytails, neon colors, etc…….Being that I’m an 80′s baby, I was soooo in my element and loved every bit of it! Here are just a few of my favorite pics from that night. Happy B-day Kellz luv ya! xoxo
Ye is in the Christmas spirit, lol. Check it…..
Growing up my mama and daddy always told me the truth! They simply explained to me that there is NO fat man who comes down the chimney to bring gifts. First off, we didn’t have a chimney, we had a fire escape, lol. My mom and dad worked so hard every year to make sure we had the BEST Christmas! For those who do tell their kids there IS a Santa, to each is own, do your thang With that being said, in honor of Christmas I wanted to do a little tribute to the Fat Guy in Red-ha!
*This lil boy seems to be preoccupied w/ striking a pose. Santa is not even on his radar, lol.
Throwback of me, my brother Greg and sis Marge in 1986
I grew up listening to Heavy D and The Boyz and especially loved their videos. Heavy always stayed on point with the dancing even though he was bit overweight, it never stopped him. Although, I was too young to go to the parties and get down with the grown folks. My brothers and sister would mimicked their dance routines all day everyday, lol. When I was 10 yrs old I recall hearing the news about Trouble T-Roy (one of Heavy’s dancers) dying. He fell off the stage while practicing for a show in 1990…so sad:( With that being said….This morning I was listening to “Somebody For Me” It brought back so many childhood memories. I forgot how much I loved this song…So, I decided to take it back for ya’ll today. Enjoy!
The Shaka Zulu restaurant in London opened 3 months ago. I finally go my hands on some images of this beautiful establishment! I promised myself that I am going to London just to experience this place! Simply amazing……
