Sheen Magazine Presents VH1’s Hit The Floor Meet & Greet with Actor Rob Riley



On Saturday May 24th , I had the chance to drop in on the Hit the Floor Meet and Greet with Actor Rob Riley presented by Sheen Magazine.  Ladies, not only is Mr. Riley nice on the eyes, he is genuinely a sweet and down to earth person.  The talented actor literarly just finished shooting the Season Finale, before he boarded a plane and joined us in Atlanta.  He is extremely grounded, humble, and all around a great guy.  Riley discussed with the small group of bloggers and media professionals his role on VH1’s Hit the Floor, his life and struggles on being an African-American actor, and shared with us his other vices such as playing the guitar, signing, and his new found love of photography.





Sammie and Sandie of Sheen Magazine did an excellent job hosting the event. The atmosphere was light and full of energy as the invited guest joked, danced, and took pictures with Robert Riley.  There was also a surprise performance from new female group on the rise Havok Jones singing “What’s It Gonna Be” by En Vogue, which turned out to be one of Riley’s favorite songs.




I would like to thank Sheen Magazine for an awesome event, The Cake Cafe for the great treats, Exclusiv Vodka for the wonderful beverages and last of all Robert Riley for being a great role model for our future.  Check out Hit the Floor on VH1 9 pm on Monday nights!

Thoughts of a 20 Something Year Old, “The Very Essence of Me by Tahnee Jones is Now Available Nationwide!



Not quite a memoir, but including personal internal issues, the author chooses to use several animated short stories to describe the different phases of the Black Woman’s life. Thoughts of a 20- Something Year Old “The Very Essence of Me” is the first book included in a series written from the perspective of well…a 20-something year old black woman. From toxic relationships with both insignificant others and parents, to identity crisis’ and motherhood, each fictional story is written to provoke thoughts of careful self evaluation within each reader. Like life in general, some of the stories and commentary are given remedies from both spiritual and practical aspects, and some are simply left opened ended thus creating a shock effect; but all are tied together with a single touch of advice in between each passage from an anonymous “Wise Woman” as titled who possesses a motherly (or grandmother to younger ladies) type of spirit. Enjoy the journey, take notes, and identify where change is needed the most.
