OWN’s Love In The City!

20140425-081214.jpg
Since it’s premiere earlier this month, I have been watching and loving Oprah Winfrey Network’s newest docu-series, “Love In The City”, starring Kiyah Wright (celebrity hair stylist and the link who brought the four friends together), Bershan Shaw (founder of social networking site URAWARRIOR), Chenoa Maxwell (actress and aspiring photographer) and Tiffany Jones (founder of Pink Chose Me Foundation).

The show follows the four women as they juggle their professional and personal lives in the fast paced flow of New York City (particularly NYC’s legendary Harlem neighbourhood). The quartet have known each other for more than ten years and are constant sources of inspiration, support, competition and companionship to one another through life’s successes and setbacks.

Tiffany and Bershan are both breast cancer survivors dedicating their lives in sharing their stories of survival to spread awareness and provide hope to other women.

Brownie points to OWN for bringing us a new series that displays more sisterly love than hyped-up drama.

Meet the cast:

My friend Andrew Lockett is making a difference. You can do the same by donating online here!

4 – Check out The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
I must admit, I was hooked after the 1st one. I’m excited to see this movie myself.

5 – Try one of your favorite holiday drinks from Starbucks!
Do you prefer the Gingerbread Latte, the Caramel Brûlée Latte or the Peppermint Mocha?
I plan to start a new tradition and try a different one every year.


This year, I will try the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate (thanks to my colleague Meg for the tip). 👍
