valentinesday

With Valentines Day just days away, some may be in a panic in trying to plan the perfect day or finding the right gift for your sweetheart, that say’s “I love you”. Here are a couple of things that may help you make this day perfect for you and your valentine:

Tight Budget:

for your man: It’s true what they say, “A way to a mans heart is through his stomach”. A man loves a home cooked meal, especially from his girlfriend/wife. Find out what his favorite meal(s) are and start cooking! This to a man is more valuable than a gift. If you aren’t married, this well defiantly score you a lot of points. He will appreciate the time, effort and love you put into make him a great dinner.

for your girl: Of course, jewelry and nice things will always win a girl’s heart, but it’s the little things that matters the most. Therefore, make a basket filled up of her favorite things (If you’re not that crafty, find a female friend, relative or your mother to help you out). This will show that you actually listen and pay attention to the things she says.

Music:

Music can either make the mood right or totally wrong! here are some good songs that can set the mood just right.

for your man:

  1. Aaliyah- At Your Best
  2. Beyoncé- 1+1
  3. Faith Evans- Never Gonna Let You go
  4. Xscape – Am I Dreamin’
  5. Alicia Keys- That’s When I Knew
  6. Nivea- Complicated
  7. Destiny Child- Cater 2 U
  8. SWV- Rain
  9. Beyoncé- Dangerously In Love
  10. Lauren Hill- Sweetest Thing

for your girl:

  1. Trey Songz – One Love
  2. Joe-I Wanna Know
  3. 112- Cupid
  4. Avant- Read Your Mind
  5. Jamie Foxx- Heaven
  6. Babyface – Everytime I Close My Eyes
  7. Miguel- Adorn
  8. Tyrese- Lately
  9. Robin Thicke- Lost Without You
  10. Dru Hill – Beauty

Chocolates:

It’s not Valentines Day without chocolate! This best kind of chocolate to get is Godiva, Ghirardelli or Russell Stoven. Godiva is a very rich and smooth chocolate that literally melts in your mouth. Ghirardelli is also very rich and their chocolate’s have delicious varieties in their chocolate fillings. Godiva may run on the expensive side, but it’s worth the money. If don’t want to spend too much on chocolate, Hersey’s always does the trick.

Places To Go:

If you’re a more outgoing and love the outdoors, try a nice boat ride, miniature golf or a nice walk around the park. If you’re a more laid back couple, just do a simple dinner and a movie. If you don’t feel like going out, get creative and set up the bedroom or the living room nice to give it a nice restaurant feel. This way, it’s a bit more intimate and private.

Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice!:

Of course, it’s not Valentines Day without the perfect nightcap. Guys, if you really want to win your lady over, run a nice bubble bath for her after dinner or feel free to join her. Set nice scented candles are the tub and all around the bathroom. Ladies, our men work hard and a nice massage would be perfect for him. Also, one thing to always remember, wrap it up!

Happy Valentines Day from Be.U!

Women Aren’t Complicated, Just Misunderstood…

Women Aren’t Complicated, Just Misunderstood…

Complicated (adj.) 1. consisting of parts intricately combined 2. difficult to analyze or explain.

Sentence : ” Some men think that  most women are complicated.”

As human beings, we’re broken down into different species – men and women. Within each species, there are things that are instilled within each to differentiate them into their own. This is called nature. Our nature affects how we interact others, how we handle situations, and the way we live on the day-to-day basics. It also affects our mental, physical and emotional state. It is within a women’s nature to nurture, care deeply for others and to be more in tune with their emotions. For men, it is within their nature to be strong, tough and to be able to provide for the ones whom he cares for. Unlike women, men are not always likely to respond to situations solely off of their emotions because it’s not within their nature  to do so, so their initial response is to react mentally. In a relationship between these two species, this is where conflict may occur.

A man will see a woman as “complicated” due to his nature to not fully comprehend the complexity of a women and her nature. Therefore, the main contribution to the confusion is a man lacking the understanding on how to respond. What makes up the complexity of a woman is her ability of knowing things, which is called a woman’s intuition. This intuition is like a sixth sense of some sort and gives women the ability to sense if something is right or wrong. This intuition could also be a  sense of protection because woman are more vulnerable to be hurt or fooled because of their loving and caring nature. Since some men may not understand this, some women may be seen as “crazy” in a mans perspective, when in reality, it’s a woman’s source of protection.  Another reason why some men may also feel that women are complicated, is the fact that some women cannot express want they really want from a man. Generally speaking, every woman wants a sense of security, love, trust and happiness from a man. The main question a man needs to ask himself is, “Can I provide this for her?” If so, her desires are not hard to be met.

Overall, the key to understanding women and removing the complications that may come with being in a relationship, lays in a mans hands. A man has to have the willingness and urge for wanting to gain understanding. He also has to have an open mind with wanting to expand his knowledge on a woman’s world and her views of the world from her mental, physical and emotional stand point. For a man who doesn’t take this approach, may find himself confused and to believe that the woman has the issue. In some cases, this may be true. However, this will lead a man to think that women are complicated, when in actually, just misunderstood.

Who do you think will win?

Is The ‘Rap Game’ Getting Out of Hand? [Chris Vs. Ocean + Rick Ross]

Is The ‘Rap Game’ Getting Out of Hand? [Chris Vs. Ocean + Rick Ross]

1359379579_chris-brown-frank-ocean-lgSo I am pretty sure that everyone in world is aware of Chris Brown and Frank Oceans’ little “scuffle” that recently took place [shocking]. This is not the only altercation that Brown and Frank have been involved in. These two have been at it since the beginning of Oceans career from arguing back and forth via Twitter, why? Who knows. But what we do know is that this is nothing but high school-my-lyrics-are-better-than-yours-male-echo drama. You would think that they would have better things to do with their time beside going back and forth with one another on Twitter and fighting over a parking space. Yes, a parking space. The physical altercation took place outside of a recording studio, assuming the two pulled up at the same time, words were exchanged and then blows were thrown. I would have loved to know exactly what was said before they fought. In addition, I feel like there is more brewing between these two and there is a deeper meaning behind their dislike for one another. Either way it goes, it’s just plain out ridiculous and both need a bit more of maturity under their belt. I am more of a fan for Frank Ocean for more than I am for Chris Brown due to the fact that Franks’ lyrics have more depth, in contrast to Chris which are just written to the beat. So if the beef is between their song written skills? Hands down, Frank Ocean has won that fight. In other words, I really hope these two find a common ground and agree to disagree before it gets out of hand.

untitled (5) On a more serious matter, Rick Ross aka “Mr. Rozay”, was allegedly a target of a drive- by shooting on Las Olas Boulevard in Fresno, CA. Luckily, Ross as well as his girlfriend who was with him at the time of the incident, walked away shaken, but no serious injuries was done. If this situation sounds familiar, you are right. It happened years ago (in California as well) to a well-known rapper by the name of Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace. He was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting at a stop light leaving a party at a local club. Unfortunately, this case still reminds unsolved and his death still leave sadness to those who grow up listening to his music as well as to those in the music industry. It’s a freighting thought how the two are similar to each other, but one was spared a chance to change. Hopefully, this is a wake up called for Mr. Rozay.

This rap game has to change.
