Let me give you a little background on the show:
(Suite 62) on Sundays called "E-CLASS" (the music elite)…teaching the evolution of soul… which features a rare blend of NU-SOUL/acid jazz/rare grooves/electronica/dance/funk/soulful house/ambient/afrorock/lounge/brazilian jazz/afrofunk-beat/spoken word/experimental, etc...Feel free to submit some hooootness to be played on air. We encourage you to send professionally mastered and mixed music for the country to hear. We wanna hear from known and unknown, national and international artists who want to get voices heard. Let's give radio something new and fresh.
The show is hosted by Kia Bennett( My HU homie) and Deborah Bond(If you havent checked her out, you need to do so; her albums DayAfter and AfterDay(the remix) are both great pieces of work) and these ladies are putting it down, from Jamiroquai, to Omar. From new school Anthony David to ol' school, Sade and the list goes on! I enjoyed my first serving this past Sunday and I was definitely left hungry for more!!!!!! It was definitely a tasty treat!!!!

Let's Take a Trip

For all of you who have an itch to travel, here is a deal for you! The new "it" spot is the The Cove at Atlantis! located in Paradise Island, Bahamas. It's where you want to be and they are offering a great deal(see below). My husband and I have been to the Atlantis and it was a nice inexpensive weekend excursion. Atlantis is a little more family oriented, with water rides, casinos, and live entertainment (reminded me a lot of Vegas, minus the turquoise water,but lots going on), but I'm guessing The Cove is targeted for a younger, hipper, crowd. We are definitely going to check it out and at the rate they are offering, you might want to Take a Trip too!

Here's what they are offering:
4 days 3 nights Packages
Beach Tower from $369
Royal Tower from $589
The Cove Atlantis from $799

For more information: Call 800-ATLANTIS

For all my Gucci Lovers

Ladies and Gentleman...

The Summer Gucci Sale has arrived. Save up to 50% off handbags and clothing in participating stores in the U.S.

The presale begins tomorrow. This means you can go into a Gucci Boutique, purchase an item for the sale price, however it wont be available for pick up or mailing until the official sale begins, which according to my resource has not been confirmed, but it will be in June(im guessing the first week, but don't quote me). I have been fortunate enough to pick up two great bags as a result of this sale, both here in DC and in Hawaii. Oh, and fyi, once the sale begins, you can also find sale items on the website at! Hmmm...let's see oh yeah, the sale happens twice a year in June and December! I will keep you posted on the dates for the December sale ( i usually get a postcard in the mail). I have been told that some other great designers (i.e. Christian Dior) also have a similar sale. So...Louis Vuitton needs to get on it(they Never have a sale).

Let summer begin with a timeless bag! Happy Shopping!

Stepping out on a limb

Fashion...Where do I begin. Well I have always been an admirer of great fashion. Ever since I can remember I have always had a watchful eye for all things Fabulous! I was always in someones closet whether it was my mom's(best clutches and boots), dad( best worn-in Levi's)sister's(best make-up, purses, and all things trendy), even my big brother(remember those striped Guess overalls I stole out of your closet? they were sooo fly!!!). Guess we all were blessed with a little Fashion Sense. (thanks mommie, you made it all possible). My dad, although very frugal, was also a great fashionist-o(if that is a word. so thanks daddy)! He allowed me to explore my many changes in fashion by allowing me to step out with some crazy git ups(I did grow up in the 80's and 90's) and subscribe to the likes of Sassy and YM(do y'all remember Young Miss)and many an outfit were created! Wow, guess I have been into this longer than I realized.

Well, with all this said and lots of encouraging words(thanks Sister's Dining), I have decided to Step out on a Limb and share a little bit of my world of fashion and inspirations with all of you! I hope you find some helpful tips about everything from my favs to the latest looks in fashion, make-up tips, smell-goods, music and travel spots!

Welcome to My Mommies Closet...Take a peek inside and let the creations begin!!!!
