Sorry this entry reaches you a day later then I had anticipated! With yesterday being THE best Birthday one could wish for, it was totally unrealistic of me to assume that I was gonna be able to handle preparing le blog at stupid o’ clock last night with the Mojito & Baileys floating around in my system!! Smh! Lol!
So here I am…still cheesin’ like a fool at the course of yesterday’s events 🙂
** NEW SINGLE ** >>> ‘NO OTHER CHOICE’ <<< is available for download on iTunes NOW!!
A testimony from yours truly set in within a deep Reggae groove…a MUST HEAR!!
My Birthday in thumbnails…
Trigger happy with my iPhone from the moment we left the door!!
Cub waiting impatiently for the rest of us to catch up. Mummy looking hott!! 🙂
Both teaching me valuable lessons every day…
Felt so good!…
You know those moments when you can’t work out if you’re experiencing nostalgia, deja vu or an outer body experience?!? Well this was one of them…
Home for a quick shower & change before heading out to my favourite Tapas spot in Roquetas!…
Trigger happy I tell you!! Lol! (I was driving everyone crazy!!)
It was delicious!!! 🙂
Thanks so much to Rocco at Casablanca for making me feel so special 🙂
Yummy bubbles! 😉
I love me some cocktails, so I decided to have just one before the clock struck 12!
Cue: ‘Mojitos’…one of my local bars to hear some good music, relax & enjoy the best Mojito’s in town! Cuban vibes…
You best believe I took my sweet time!! 😉
Thanks Miguel…your cocktails are no game!! Lol!!
All in all, I had a spectacular day!
I learned that when you strip away all the hype…bs…materialistics etc, you’d be surprised just how easy it is to focus on & celebrate the matter at hand for what it really is…ANOTHER YEAR OF LIFE.
I give thanks to my mum, dad & lil man for making it everything that it was.
Just been cracking on as usual, promoting & spreading the word locally, nationally & internationally! Have had some great shows so far this month…the Spanish are slowly getting used to QueenBrit & we’re meeting some great people along the way!!
Here are a few thumbnails from last Sunday’s show…
Us chicas sure love to pose!
There’s nothing like the feeling of a job well done! Always time for a pic with a happy venue owner!!
Left them on the dancefloor!! 😉
I’m looking forward to this event on Thursday…it’s gonna fun!!
THROWBACK OF THE DAY
As it’s my Birthday blog!! *cringing*…
Carlene ‘QueenBrit’ Graham is…GLORIA GAYNOR!!
Is it over yet?!? Lol!
Nah but for real, I had an incredible time on the show…at the time (7 years ago) it was one of my dreams checked off the list!
‘5mins 2 Shine’
Today’s feature is: Kodi Me’Chele
1) What do you do & how well do you do it?
What I do is turn “LIFE” into a comedy show. “LIFE” has the tendency to bring all of us through ups and downs, but instead of crying over spilled milk, why not laugh over how you spilled the milk!
I don’t like to consider myself as a comedian because I don’t tell jokes. I speak of real life situations that everyone can relate to and let everyone see the humorous side to it. “LIFE” laughs at us every day, so why not laugh at “LIFE!”
2) Where do you foresee yourself 12 months from today?
A year from now, I see myself LIVING, LOVING and ENJOYING! This is a feeling that is not 12 months from now, but every day. If someone can overlook the negativities of the world, than everything else is and always WILL be more than OK!
3) What was one of the most memorable times in your life?
One of the most memorable times in my life was when I saw Whoopi Goldberg on HBO in the 80’s doing stand-up. I had no idea who this woman was and my family had just got cable (well the illegal way…lol) and Whoopi Goldberg was imitating a white valley girl with the towel on her head. After I watched that, I went in the bathroom and did the same thing like she did. I remember my mother saying, “What are you doing?” and I replied, “I am being a WHITE GIRL!” Classic moment of what I knew I was going to be in life. Making the world shine with smiles!
4) Given the resources, what one change would you make in the world & why?
One change I would make in the world is for these BAD ASS KIDS to calm the HELL DOWN…lol! When I was growing up, there was no talking back to your elders and OLE SKOOL moms were really OLE SKOOL moms, not 10 years older than the child…lol! PEOPLE LET’S get it TOGETHER!
5) What do you think of my daily blog? (Message for my readers)
Your daily blog brings SUNSHINE to readers who might need some uplifting or a feeling of living for the next day, hour, min and second. If 10,000 people read your blog and only one person found some uplifting to be motivated to change and achieve what is necessary in that person’s life, than that is beyond changing the world!
Kodi’s song selection of the day is:
‘That’s The Way Of The World’ – Earth Wind & Fire

Thanks so much for the interview sis!! You totally inspire me.
It’s been nearly three years since I had the opportunity to share the stage with you (at the show put together by Real Deal Women in NJ) & it was an absolute pleasure!
I’m so glad that we’ve reconnected after all this time…I’ve already embraced a handful of teachings from you that you post daily…continue to inspire sis…you’re going all the way to the top!! My jaw hit the flaw when I saw who you were interviewing last week!! 😉
Much love & I eagerly look forward to working with you!! xxx
OK Y’ALL, SO THAT’S IT FROM ME ON TODAY’S BLOG…BEEN HARPING ON LONG ENOUGH NOW! LOL!!I HOPE YOU’VE ENJOYED THE CATCH UP AS MUCH AS I HAVE THE EXPERIENCES. SEE YOU IN A FEW WITH MORE JUICE FROM QUEENBRIT!!
