A Dozen of Roses or a Bouquet?


By JUSTIN MABRIE (Ideal PR Media Contributing Writer)

Often, there is a part of you that wants this new person you are dating to be “the one”… the one to save you from all others and fulfill all your needs.

Never should expectations be placed on a single person or situation solely based on a first impression you may have. Yes, there is a possibility that life may be changing because you feel you have met your match but patience must rule over a completely answered survey on the first date. Allow a person to reveal him or herself slowly.

A comfortable pace is best for honest understanding and true description of a person’s character. Be concerned should you feel you know everything there is to know about an individual after your first outing. It is more intriguing to your spirit to gradually learn a person. People can choose an avatar for their social networking profile; they can write letters to represent their feelings; they can add up educational degrees to speak for their intelligence; however only consistent & sincere interaction will truly represent their outlook and appreciation for you being in their life. The many movie dates, dining experiences, walks in the park, fun in kitchen when cooking together, life discussions over glasses of wine, and shared spiritual experiences will give you understanding of how compatible you may be with this person. A kite allows the wind to guide its’ flight; similarly one should allow interactions to guide the next step and discovery.

It is believed that a dozen of roses represent how much you really care and if you are short of that number then the meaning translations vary with negative undertones that lead to ambiguous assumptions. In the sense of a relationship, it is refreshing to receive your roses over time. Each rose represents another thought and allows further insight to be had about that person. Once you have time to reflect on the forming relationship, you should have lost count of the actual number of roses yet the combined bouquet is so much larger and filled with more meaning that would not have existed had you simply received a dozen at your door step after a couple of dates.

You do not want a person to pick and choose what he or she wants to reveal to you. Instead, you want comfortable behavior and communication to supersede a long sheet resume designed and packaged for the masses.

Remember: Date with ease and allow the mystery to intrigue.

SEXY at the 2011 ESPY's

Last night the ESPY Awards took place in Los Angeles, CA...there was plenty of eye candy and many deserving awards given out. Typically red carpets are draped with gorgeous gowns and women, but last night was a true treat for the ladies. Among the sexiest and best dressed on our list include Ray Allen, Eddie George, Desean Jackson and Matt Kemp. Actor Jesse Williams was there in his casual cool look and can do no wrong in our book. It seemed that gray suits with pink or gray toned ties were popular last night.

While we love Matt Barnes, the verdict is still out on if we liked THAT suit on HIM. And Dhani Jones is an awesome man...but there is much chatter about the bow-tie king looking a little on the sloppy side yesterday.

Take a look...tell us your thoughts!!!

(Jesse Williams...yummy!)

Brian J. White Releases His Book of Tools To Live By: "Black Carpenter"

As talent goes, Brian J. White is about as talented as one man could be. He is smart, witty, athletic, endearing, attractive and giving, among many other qualities. His background includes being accomplished as an actor, NFL player, professional dancer, youth activist and an all-around great guy. Yesterday, along with co-author Anna Cheshire Levitan, Brian released the Kindle Edition of their new book "Black Carpenter: Straight Talk to Build a Solid Foundation" through ( Now, Brian can add the title "Author" to his list of accomplishments. This book will undoubtedly change lives and impact futures. Something we are sure this humble gentleman from Massachusetts intends.

Brian stood out in the background of the film "The Best Man" and never had to say a word. Now he is speaking from his heart and sharing his personal knowledge about how to use these tools to become the best you that you can be. The title of the book "Black Carpenter" is a metaphor in the sense that he shows you how to build a successful life - no matter what race, nationality or background from which you derive. And he should know! How many people can say they have played in the NFL, starred on TV shows (Men of A Certain Age, The Shield, Second Time Around, etc.), films (The Family Stone, Stomp The Yard, Fighting, Politics of Love, etc), acquired their license as a stock broker, became a loving husband and has always been known to be a loyal friend? Brian J. White...although he would never say this, because he is one of the most humble men you could ever meet.

It is with great pride that Neeta from Ideal PR personally recommends this book, as she downloaded her copy the first day it was released. "I remember being in Hollywood, speaking to Brian on the set of [his then TV show], Second Time Around. I became captivated by the level of charisma and knowledge he possessed. I could see he was a talented and attractive actor, but learned things about him that day and over time through professional interactions, that have left a lasting impression. While on the set of the movie 'The Heart Specialist' I was exposed to a very humorous side of Brian off camera, behind the scenes. I remember thinking how well rounded he was on top of being humble. So when it was mentioned that he was coming out with a book, I knew I would support his efforts to the fullest. I am enjoying reading it. And the best part is that I can read it while on the computer going about my day," said Neeta.

In the book Brian shares, "Black Carpenter is divided into five Parts: Education, Health and Fitness, the Arts, Relationships, and Spirituality. Through personal storytelling and honest revelation, I apply the four carpentry tools – the hammer of strength, level of balance, locking pliers of tenacity, and tape measure of accountability – to each part. I tell you the truth about my life and journey to become a Black Carpenter, the mistakes I made and lessons I learned the hard way. My tales are not perfect and my actions are not always admirable, but they are real. I banged my fingers with the hammer more than a couple of times until I learned the lesson of strength through humility (White, Brian (2011). Black Carpenter (Kindle Locations 203-208). Kindle Edition.)."

Do yourself a favor and download your copy of "Black Carpenter" today. Another great thing -you can also download more copies to give as gifts for friends and their children! Who can't read a book while surfing the next, checking facebook and chatting on twitter? For only $6.99, it will be the most significant gift you can give someone this month, as it will potentially change their life forever.

You can follow Brian on Twitter and be sure to join his movement and support his organization:

T3 of Slum Village Release his Solo EP Album Today Entitled "3iller" (Digital Release)

Today is a great day for true hip-hop fans. The digital release of T3's (Slum Village) solo EP Album entitled "3iller" (pronounce "Thriller") releases TODAY July 5, 2011. You can download the entire EP or solo tracks from iTunes:

3iller marks the debut of T3's first solo EP album and is sure to be every bit WELL WORTH the wait. T3 told Ideal PR, "I haven't done anything solo in 5 years. It felt great to go into the studio and do my own thing without worrying about the Slum brand." 3iller represents T3 - his style, his flow and his energy. It is always great to have our favorite artists from groups step out and shine under a solo spotlight and give us a different side of their creativity. T3 delivers and delivers well.

Known for his tantalizing word play and smooth soulful flow, T3 gives his fans a solo EP album worth downloading. In an era where rappers have fleeted from producing albums with more than one or two hits for the radio and the club, it is refreshing to have artists, such as T3, remain a TRUE Artist...putting 100% into each track.

Support the EP and download it now! It will be worth your time, energy and money...something we don't say lightly; but it is true. Five tracks you will listen to over and over...even the intro :-)
