Inspired by her experience, Morrison founded Lily’s Kitchen, the UK’s #1 organic pet food company, dedicated to providing dogs with the same quality of food dog owners feed themselves. As Morrison says, “If it’s not good enough for me, it’s not good enough for Lily.” Now, to help dog owners everywhere improve and prolong their pets’ lives and avoid vet visits, Morrison shares her most popular recipes in DINNER FOR DOGS: 50 Home-Cooked Recipes for a Happy, Healthy Dog

“We love her, we have been loving her!”
For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you know that I have been sending out Tweets about Midnight and the Meaning of Love non-stop. Amazing book and Sister Souljah is the truth. The reason the story is so intriguing to me is because of the cross cultural references, interracial love, multi city adventures and dynamic personalities and strong women in every shape and sense.
I use to think I was young Winter Santiaga, now I know im Chaisa Hiyoku Brown…. I also spectulate that Midnight is a Libra (such a level headed guy), Chaisa a Gemini (so vivacious) and Akemi a Pisces (such a dreamer) but that’s just me. Here is Souljah and her team.
I took the train across the ways to Newark Public Library to listen to Sister Souljah talk and do her book signing. She is gracious, sparkling and exactly how I imagined. I was so happy to be there and see a room filled with people who also love and read Sister Souljah. The gift of storytelling. Amazing. Here is what some of her fans has to say.

Happy 2010 everyone!
I am going to start each new year with a book recommendation. For 2009, everyone got Tribal – for 2010, get Passionate! I am a true believer in universal signs, kinetic energy and discovering your true passion. This past year has been a fantastic personal journey towards finding out my life’s purpose and what I am truly good at. Here is a break down…
2009 in review
Jan: I had the opportunity to hear Richard Branson speak during Ad Week. He inspired me to not fear the recession but to see it as “the perfect opportunity for entrepreneurship and time for companies that are slacking to be weeded out”. Thanks dude!
Feb: After the amazing SATCM party in May 2008, I spent a lot of time and energy concocting the best Shopaholic party Toronto has every seen! I planned this event for almost 9 months and it went off with out a hitch! Everyone had an amazing time and I even landed in BizBash.
March: Then came March, which means Toronto Fashion Week! From the success of Shopaholic, I was so lucky to throw the Fashion Showdown featuring Le Malek and was sponsored by FUZE. I was so happy with the turnout and knew that event planning is going to be a big part of my life. I learned that creating something from nothing is a lot of work but well worth it. Everything in this world started as an idea.
April: I went to Ryerson’s Mass Exodus fashion show this month and left with a tinge of sadness that I never got to pursue my dreams in fashion school. So I decided this month that I should try to hone in on my passion and find a new direction for myself, one that is more focused and very specific to my talents and interests. I applied for FIDM this month and got accepted for the Beauty Marketing & Merchandising program. So I started planning for my last 2 months in Toronto. I took my best volunteer from Fashion Showdown and asked her to come ‘on blog’ and she did! That’s Shay.
May: I know the importance of surrounding myself with inspirational, talent driven and passionate people. In May, I hosted the Stylus DJ Awards with Marc Ecko Timepiece for the 2nd year! I learned that I love being on camera! Being on TV is another dream of mine! I am getting better at hosting and you can watch my progress on yvonnekai.com
June: I had my 25th birthday/going away party called California Dreamin’ and I took off to LA. It was amazing to see both new friends and old come to send me off. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. Toronto events get hectic and Bella comes on-blog too this month! Michael Jackson dies and the entire world weeps. I get to experience this in the city where he dies, Los Angeles. I was there by the Staples Center, realizing that in his death, it was a celebration of his life. I want my life to mean something.
July: I did something drastic this month. I dyed my hair black. I decided that it was a time for a change and time to embrace the new me. I start interning, learning more about LA, ate at Nobu but was not invited to Diddy’s White Party. I meet some people and I tell them I hate LA – They tell me I’m suffering from Big Fish in Small Pond syndrome and they says Glossy, you are not in Toronto anymore. I concur.
August: I get homesick because I missed Caribana, Nuit Blanch, Mentos event, meeting Quentin Tarintino, shopping with Wendy Woods, Cadillac fragrance launch, Absolut Art Installation and a slew of other fun Toronto Events. I take off with Juzd to MAGIC for the 2nd year in row in Vegas. Recession hits hard and the 3 hall event turns into a 1 hall trade show. I come along and sell them optimism ^_^ I learn here that it’s better to be in the Beauty business than the Fashion business – hello Lipstick Index!
September: I finished my 1st Quarter at FIDM and fly back to Toronto for my month long break! Wee! I have so much fun: Film Fest parties, Art of Fashion and tons of fun events. I miss my friends and Toronto! I realize that i get to enjoy my red carpet access because I worked my butt off to get there and if I want the same thing in LA I better put in double the work and 1/2 the dress size. Yikes. I also got to host Art of Fashion with their videographer. Just be open to all opportunities and it will find you.
October: I head back to LA and experience Halloween in LA – it’s insanity. I realize how much weather affects people. I miss Toronto Fashion Week but I got to go to LA Fashion Week, made some new friends at school and bought a lil Honda! Everyone in LA drives – when in Rome…
November: I kick my studying into high gear and decide that I am going to get straight A’s this quarter. I sign up for glass blowing class at the LA City College and I got my first products to review from Raw Mineral Makeup as an LA Blogger! I review Fred Segal, I start fostering a puppy and I go to my first CEW event. I am excited to get my first taste of the fabulous Beauty Industry. I love my life in LA.
December: I am back in Toronto for the holidays and I am proud of 2009. As Lissa would say two thousand and grind. I wanna say two thousand and mine. I entered a bag design contest at FIDM, I finish the quarter with a 3.92 GPA, I am excited about the sequins trend and I produced the very first HeyDoYou Style Diary. So far so good.
Please start your 2010 right by reading this:

Happy new year!
