Senses Lifestyle Magazine: December 2012 Issue

4 Dec


Greetings & Happy Holidays!

2012 is almost at a close, and it has been a joy providing you our readers and supporters with the best knowledge we here at Senses Lifestyle have to offer to make your quality of living that much more diverse and meaningful. This month we’ve included a variety of content including a couple of interesting perspectives on Taste and Touch this holiday season. While this time of year is a joyous period of celebration for some it can come with negative connotations and habits. Taelor Cage explores the question of whether our respective indulgences are furthered as alternative methods to avoid stress through Over Indulging or Just Improvising and shows you how to turn those same vices into positive actions. For those men who find themselves in an emotional thicket when it comes down to holiday shopping and keeping your lover, Danielle White delivers her ideas in Holiday Gift Ideas To Keep Her to buying the right gift and attaining an even greater return. Looking for the right sweater or jacket to give your family member who’s closet is full of prior season garments? Take a look at Staying Warm for the Holiday Season for stylish suggestions from Khorry Lewis and it doesn’t hurt to create the perfect 1, 2 gift combination with a new, urban look this Winter! And if you’re looking for a new artist to tune your ears to while you trim your tree, Khorry invites you to take a listen to Daley, The British Heart Throb.  We’ve also chosen emerging fashion brand 2wenty5eight clothing as our Fashion Spotlight this season that will have you wearing the dream that you believe in! Should you be looking for that new, inspirational piece of  literature to launch you into the new year, we recommend viewing our 6th Sense  of Quality interview as Senses Lifestyle sits down with 2012 NAACP Image Award recipient and poet, James B. Golden to talk about his brand new book The Inside Of An Orange.

We hope you have enjoyed this year and wish you all the best that life has to offer in the new year! Be sure to follow us on Twitter @S_LifestyleMag and Subscribe to our site for all new issues in 2013!

A Quality Moment With The Editor

Persistence is key to realizing and fulfilling the dream…

Joshua Thompson, S_L Editor-in-ChiefThe year 2012 has been a year of struggle and triumph to say the very least. We have seen the socio-economic structure of our country fluctuate in a myriad of ways, and this has truly shaped the way in which we as Americans relate to one another and view our society as a whole. From indications of potential financial meltdowns, to a heated political race for the presidency, to a surge in mobile technology, it has all weighed in heavily on our perspective on how the modern world is changing. Now that we are on the cusp of transitioning into another unpredictable year the question that is presented is simply, Where do we go from here? It is my personal belief that to answer this inquiry we most reevaluate the vision we have within ourselves and the goals we desire to achieve. To attain positive progression we must adhere to our morals and values that we hold dear to bring change and hope to the generation to come.

Our vision as a people must not be of one of self reliance and gratification, but of collective perseverance and community. When we look at the historic re-election of our Commander in Chief whether you voted for or against him, there can be no denial that the central lesson that this year has brought us is the necessity for unity and persistence.  The “crabs in a barrel” syndrome can be extinguished if we distinguish our purpose to support one another and end it. We cannot give up though our desire for how our circumstances should be does not correlate with our per-conceived agenda. Persistence is key to realizing and fulfilling the dream. Remember to appreciate what you have daily will remind yo that we have been given a purpose to continue to gain our victory. Whatever endeavor it is that we want to achieve can reach its full potential if we continue to believe.

I encourage all to take advantage of the new year to come and to believe that your vision can prosper and not allow “di-vision” to separate you from your hearts desires. Whatever is mentally conceivable IS physically achievable.

SENSES Lifestyle Salutes Yolanda Anderson & The 2012 3rd Annual She Cares Foundation Charity Basketball Game

19 Aug

SENSES Lifestyle Magazine is proud to support the She Cares Foundation and Founder Yolanda Anderson as they prepare to host the 2012 3rd Annual She Cares Celebrity Basketball Game on August 25th, 2012 at the Edward E. Roybal Learning Center home of the Titans and the Los Angeles Lakers summer camp in Los Angeles, CA.  This philanthropic event has been established by the She Cares Foundation to further its mission to honor and raise awareness about the impact, importance, and power of single mothers in the entertainment industry, our communities and in our lives.

This year will feature guest appearances from a myriad of celebrities, entertainment figures, and professional athletes including: Rob Kardashian (Keeping Up With The Kardashians), Vanessa Simmons (Dysfunctional Friends), Faizon Love (Couple’s Retreat), Kym Whitley (Friday After Next), Michael B. Jordan (Red Tails), Ricky Anderson (Music Executive), Kareem Rush (NBA Player), Brandon Rush (Golden State Warriors), Romeo Miller (Music Artist), Teyana Taylor (Madea’s Big Happy Family), Audio Push (Music Group), Lil Mama (America’s Best Dance Crew), and the list does not stop there!

This event is said to be arguably one of the most anticipated basketball events of 2012! Due to previous successful season’s of production this unmatched fan-favorite has brought the foundation much recognition and support toward its cause. This year’s theme focuses on encouraging everyone to understand one simple phrase, “the champion starts within”. The 2012 experience is supported by the Magic Johnson Foundation. The highly pressed red carpet will proceed starting at 3:00 p.m and the Celebrity Basketball Game will commence at 6:00 p.m. Many great pro athletes and celebrities will take center court to play, coach, host, perform, and MC for this great cause. Both athletes and entertainers will bravely rise to the challenge to see who will become She Cares 2012 Celebrity Basketball Champions.

SENSES Lifestyle Magazine is especially proud to support the She Cares Foundation and all of the strides it has made to ensure that our strong and independent single mothers have opportunities and clear pathways to be successful and self-sufficient despite their everyday struggles.  All of the proceeds for the celebrity basketball game will benefit the 2012 (Can We Give” Drive.  The drive has allowed the organization to help civilian single mothers and military single mothers from all over and give them a holiday season they can be most proud of.

Tickets for the game are available at www.shecares.eventbrite.com. For more information, visit www.shecaresfoundation.org or email corey@shecaresfoundation.org .
