There’s an old African proverb that goes: plan with a purpose, prepare with prayer, proceed with positivity and pursue with persistence! That is what Hiplet is all about. ~Homer Hans Bryant Camryn Taylor, Lourdes Taylor, Nia Parker and Nia Lyons are classically trained ballerinas and the most senior

Most people know me as the founder of Gabriel PR, but some probably don’t know that I am the Managing Editor for one of our clients: Bride & Groom Magazine. Last week was my one year anniversary as the Managing Editor and I learned so much, but I have rounded up my top 5 lessons that might also offer some guidance to anyone else in the world of print media: Know Your Reader: This is a lesson I learned while doing my PR diploma actually, but applying this lesson as

What do you get for the man in your life who has everything and wants nothing? When I think of all the loving and supportive things father’s do for their kids, we realize that all they really want is our safety and happiness and we as their children want the same for them, but what’s a Father’s Day without a gift to show them how much we love and care for them? The tricky part is that we all want to get the perfect gift for dad, but what is

I was browsing my Instagram one day and came across the photo of a woman in this bright yellow pants suit with uber fabulous shoes and thought: “I love her style”. Since browsing and curating content is a serious business for me, I try not to get caught up so I kept scrolling. •| T R U E • E S S E N C E |• #Happy #Joy #Excited Going LIVE at @essence #UndergroundWGN #ShotsFired 📸: @sharifasays MakeUp by💄: @camaraaunique A post shared by aisha hinds (@appleofhisai) on May

This week, June 3-11 are National Lemonade Days, started by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily research into new treatments and cures and to encourage and empower others – especially children – to get involved and make a difference for children with cancer. Alexandra “Alex” Scott was born to Liz and Jay Scott in Manchester, Connecticut on January 18, 1996, the second of four children. Shortly before her first birthday, Alex was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a type of childhood cancer. In August

Since I have allowed myself to feel my pain, fears and doubts, I can’t believe it’s been about a week and I’m still processing a lot of my emotions. In the past, within a day, I’m over it, but if you’re following from last weeks Morning Café, we know that I’m human and getting over certain things so quickly is not truth. In today’s video, I talk about holding down emotions and clinging to whatever makes us feel better in the moment, otherwise known as our training wheels. But eventually,

I wasn’t always a yogalista. My journey with yoga didn’t start off so pleasantly at all. I hated it the first time around, some 8 years ago and I really hated it 2 years later. But as I became determined to explore regular activity that worked for me and didn’t bore me, I fell back to yoga one last time and immersed myself even deeper by learning more about it; like that fact that there are several minority, plus sized women who also practice yoga. This third time around, I

We’re about five days away from celebrating some of the most wonderful women in the world, otherwise known as our mom’s! This year, I took to social media to get ideas and suggestions for some outstanding and out-of-the-box Mother’s Day gifts and the response was quite unexpected. Here I was thinking I was going to get recommendations on gifts that could be gift wrapped and tucked away behind my back before I yell ‘surprise!’ and hand

Last week I learned about letting go. If you’re following me on Facebook, you may have read about my ‘meltdown Monday’. I blamed my meltdown on the stranger, but upon reflection, I blame it on my tendency to hold back and suppress my feelings. I lean towards staying strong and having faith and keeping doubt and fear out of my mind, when all the while, I’ve been needing to let go. The truth is, I have been extremely fearful and doubtful and unsure; combined with a lack of confidence and

If you’re like me, you tend to eat when you’re bored or excited, and nothing excites me more than getting to the end of the work-week in one piece. If you ask me, that’s cause for a celebration and a celebration is cause for indulging in your junk food favourites. Junk food Friday is an occasion I instated years ago during one of my health kicks and even though I learned that engaging in a night of salt and sweets could undo an entire week of exercise, the occasion stuck.
