Over the last decade, Kelis has been in her culinary bag making major money moves in the food industry, and recently, she revealed a joint business venture with a popular Black-owned spice company that promises to bring all of the flavor to your kitchen.

Founded by Angel Gregario five years ago, The Spice Suite is a DC-based storefront and subscription service that carries over 100 internationally-sourced spice blends that quickly took over social media. After gaining traction online, it wasn't long before Kelis, owner of Bounty and Full sauces, linked up with The Spice Suite to give us the culinary collaboration we didn't know we needed. In an interview with ESSENCE, Angel explained:

"Kelis found me on Instagram, we were DMing, and then we got on the call and just vibed. We talked through a collaboration box together, what we were going to put in it, we were going to do an Instagram live to announce it late June."

Their collaboration box, which will be available in July, will feature an array of surprises that will spice up your regularly quarantined dinner routine expeditiously.

"My tribe of customers have been relentless in their support of me and The Spice Suite. Its been absolutely amazing. And fortunately, this is a time where everybody's at home having to cook way more than they wanted to. They're tired of making salmon the same old way. A lot of first-time customers tell me, 'I'm really bored with this chicken and I need something to do, so what do you have?'"

Because each month's delivery features a unique blend of spices that are never duplicated, by booking with this Black-owned brand you can rest assured that you'll never accidentally buy two parsleys from the grocery store ever again.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
