The shot heard around the NBA! The 76ers have fallen to the Toronto Raptors 92-90 in their seven game series. Kawhi Leonard scored the Raptors game winning shot with just 4 seconds left in the game. The Sixers fought hard all game to keep the game close but in the end they fell short and a couple of questions need to be answered in the off season.
One of the questions is will the Sixers head coach Brett Brown be back for his 8th NBA season. After having another second round playoff elimination. Another question is will Jimmy Butler or Tobias Harris be back for another season after only signing with the 76ers with one year deals. These questions and more will have to be answered in order for the Sixers to hopefully advance to NBA finals and bring another championship to the city of Philadelphia.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of dining at the best Brazilian steakhouse in Philadelphia Fogo de Chão. We absolutely loved everything about this place, the decor the food and especially the service. We were first greeted by the restaurant manager Martin who had a bootle of their signature red wine Eulila. Our next course was the incredible salad and antiposto bar which had a great assortment of meats, cheeses, salads and sides.
Next came the wide variety of meats, that’s when the real experience came in. At least 6-7 different types of meats including filet mignon, lamb, sausage and chicken. With every type of meat came a different server to hand cut each piece.
Then to finish it all up our server suggested the coconut crème brûlée and trese loaches cake which was absolutely delicious. Overall it was a very enjoyable dining experience and I hope to go back soon.
Last weekend I finally saw one of my favorite Divas, Mariah Carey, in concert! The tickets were part of my birthday present from my father, who accompanied me, though I think he has had a secret crush on her for years. I have been a Mariah fan of her since her first album, when I was only a kid! I remember growing up with the songs “Honey” and “You will always be my baby.” We also went because of the nostalgia, since it was a part of my growing up in the 90’s.
I was unsure what to expect. I was half afraid it would be a night of lip-syncing and glitter. Thankfully, all my expectations where wildly exceeded! Mariah’s live vocals and energy filled the Hard Rock venue in Atlantic City like a flood! Her passion to deliver for her fans, as well as her gratitude, was so personal and professional! She did all of her top hits and also music from her new album, Caution, in the most gorgeous outfits (she did four quick changes). Not only was Mariah a top notch performer, she also had elaborate male dancers and a complete band! Everyone at the show was delighted by her special on stage guests, her children, Monroe & Moroccan, who were absolutely the cutest!
I am just so thrilled to have seen such a legend and cannot wait to do it again!
I am, in no way, a fan of super hero movies. When I was a kid, my dad made me go and sometimes the snack bar was the best part. Usually, the action and the fast-moving plotline produces a thrill that can keep me in my seat, but no matter what you say, the fierce Halley Barry will always be Storm and the great Patrick Stewart, Dr. Charles Xavier. However, the new Captain Marvel movie recreated that childhood passion and thrill that I once had gotten from only the best super hero movies. She was brave, funny, and smart! She was also completely clothed and didn’t use sex to create a distraction from a weak plot. She’s a great role model for all women. She spoke her mind and listened to her heart, regardless of what people thought about that. She didn’t let others’ opinions inhibit her, she believed and trusted in herself. I think everyone could use a little Captain Marvel in their life. It is a KICK BUTT chick flick!
Guess who baccck!! That’s right “DJax” aka Desean Jackson is back where it all started.. Philadelphia! Desean just signed a one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. He will be joining a great core group of wide receivers already on the roster which include Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor. Desean is the kind of deep threat the Eagles need on the roster to make a playoff run at the 2020 season. I can’t wait to see what other big moves the Eagles make in next couple week to help improve roster. #philadelphiaeagles #flyeaglesfly
My first event was slowed down by snow. But I didn't let it stop us! We had such an amazing Galentines Girls Night! I can't thank everyone enough, we had such great group of dynamic women. The venue P.J. Whelihan,s in oaks was very accommodating and was a amazing private space for our event! They also have one of my personal favorite dishes loaded nachos! I would definitely suggest trying there's. I also really enjoyed hearing everyone's passion for professional success and cannot wait to see what the year has in store!
Life is ironic when you are young you love a snow day. When you get older its not as much fun! Luckily, I live in the city of brotherly love and my Philadelphia House Wives family is understanding as to why I canceled the first House Wives in the City event of the year. I love all my Philadelphia brothers and sisters and couldn't image if anything would ever happen to any one attending Galentinesday Girls Night Out Event.
In the great words of Dolly Parton “If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.” We had a little rain now we get to enjoy a rainbow! Looking forward to a Snow and Rain free event on Monday! Please check out Facebook for more details.
On these snowy days I prefer to look like I might have actually seen the sun.
I achieve my golden look while still on a budget using Jergens Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer Medium/Tan. This is super simple to use. You simply just apply it as soon as your are done in the shower or tub. In the directions it says to use your towel to help blend but, I noticed I went though way to many towels. I suggest just drying your skin about half way and then just rubbing in the excess. Yes, I apply this to my face and neck as well! I don’t use my normal moisturizer when I do this.
The difficult part is your hands! I suggest going over the top of your hands with the Glow Wet Skin then taking a Cotton round with makeup remover on it or using a makeup wipe between the webs of your fingers . Unless you wanna look like your hands are contoured.
This is my easy winter glow look! Super easy and perfect for winter!
My favorite part of the big game besides the commercials and half time show is entertaining. I have a quick and inexpensive way to feed a lot of guest. Root beer pulled pork BBQ in the crock pot also fabulous for any potluck!
You will need:
1. Pork shoulder you want to get about 1/2 pound per person.
2. 1 12oz Bottle of root beer or can
3. 1 bottle of Baby Rays BBQ or to taste
Light seasonings as to personal preference. I use a little pepper and also a pinch of basil too.
Now all you have to do is put them all in a crock pot and forget about it!
I like to always start it the night before and leave it on low for 10 hours but, if you're in a rush you can do it on high for 6-8 hours.
I also purchased coleslaw and potato rolls for the guest to either putt all together on a sandwich or enjoy separately.
