If you’re reading this… you’re outta date, homie!! I’m still working out the kinks with transferring this domain over to lovehard.ca — but from here on in, that is my new home. Soon enough this link will be the same address as lovehard.ca, so head right on over and smile to the good times that were had with this wordpress template. LOL.

I’ve spoken my piece





There’s this burning in me that I can’t explain. It’s rising up so fast and so strongly that I can actually feel it in my chest. If there is something I passionately dislike, it is mediocrity. That one word, that noun, that action, is something that is so incredibly infuriating to me. I don’t think you realize… there is a potential, a spark, in every single individual to be extraordinary. It is a CHOICE that you can make, and only you can make. To choose to be extraordinary means to rise up from what you believe your limitations are. To choose to be extraordinary means to let go of your ego, your pride, your walls and your front and humbly take ownership of your faults and your wrongdoings. It’s about being responsible for your actions. It means separating yourself from taking anything personally. It means DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT and not sitting on excuses or old ways of thinking. To choose to be extraordinary is allowing freedom to reign in your mind and living out liberation.


Be extraordinary because you can. No matter what anyone has told you in the past, and no matter how much you’re afraid to. Do not fear your ability for greatness. I swear to God… it is in You.

Beauty sees beauty.

This is an official announcement to those who are wondering the whereabouts of lovehard.ca. As you know from a few previous posts… lovehard.ca was supposed to launch as of Saturday — thus the Official Blog Launch party along with my birthday celebration. Unfortunately due to technological difficulties (what the heck does that all mean, ANYhow, lol), in one way or another… it just didn’t happen. Quite disappointing, really, buuuut not enough for it to ruin my Saturday night. Please stay posted with what’s to come for the updated site. It will be even better than what I know I was hoping for…

Love and love.

I’m horrendously irritated with wordpress at the given moment. It just froze on me leaving me with an empty text box which was once filled with five million shout outs and a re-cap of Saturday night’s events. Do I have the energy or the time to re-iterate what I said? 249012jkfldaqt02 jtdslaflksaj That means NO.

I will tell you this, though.


I had the BEST birthday Celebration of my life. Ever EVER EVERRRRR. !! GRAHHH!! From the pre-party at my crib, to the fat cake, too many drinks and dancing the night away…. everything was better than I could ever hope for. I could cry just thinking about all the love in the room. The pics should be done by tomorrow by my lovely photographer of the evening, Miss Kate Killet. I think at that point I shall leave you with some eye candy and be on my way. I am too exhausted.

Again… thank you to everyone who reached on Saturday, who sponsored, texted me, called me, showed me love in spirit or in face value… I appreciate you from the bottom of my heart, real talks.

I’ve spoken my piece.


I feel like I’m constantly learning something new about what it means to lovehard. I’ve expressed in the previous post what I believed was the coming of a new movement, a new way of thinking in which love with the highest degree of passion is the only way to live a life without mediocrity. I realized the other side of that coin, that it takes a bit more than just loving to the fullest potential — it takes courageous generosity. I say “Courageous” because it’s scary to invest your love in someone or something when you’re unsure of it being received the way you want it to, when you’re uncertain of the future, when you’re afraid of no reciprocation. That’s when you decide right then and there that that’s not going to be your priority. You must. Courageous generosity is selflessness.

I learned that yesterday, and it was one of the most humbling moments I’ve experienced in a long time. This is what it means to Love Courageously, Lovehard.

Tonight is a big night, maybe not to you, but it is to me. So what? These moments in life are meant to be celebrated. I feel ready and in the right mind set to let all previous stresses out the door, and to really soak it in. =)


With ALL that being said…. I think I’m going to let you sneak peak on some GIVVEEAWAYYYSSS!!!

Finally! A minute to tell you about my Brooklyn trip! *Siiiighhhhhhh* BK WAS SIIIIIICK. Three days of CONSTANT walking, heat, stickiness, CRAZY MUSIC, and amazing people. I can’t lie though, it was exhausting! I’m stiiiilll paying for it.

My lawd.

I cannot even begin to tell you what a hectic day it’s been. I can’t believe I’ve been so late to blog about it, but if you have me as a friend on facebook or follow me on twitter, then surely what I’m about to share is old news. As you may or may not have heard, this Saturday, July 17th not only marks the July edition of the Main Ingredient party featuring special guest DJ Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest/Lucy Pearl… but it will also be my B-Day Bash and Official lovehard blog launch.

What does this all mean?!?

Come Saturday, not only will you witness a re-designed and re-vamped charloro.com, but it will also be the home to lovehard.ca…. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?!?! What the heck IS lovehard?!?

It’s not just the name I use to represent myself in my videos [lovehard productions], but it’s my mantra, it’s the word that best represents me, who and what I’m about. Lovehard is a choice — a movement. The ideal that there is no point in doing anything in the name of mediocrity. To do so defeats the beauty and thrill in life. Passion is my flavor and hustle is my essence. Why just care when you can care hard? Why just love when you can love hard?

It don’t matter what you do if you don’t lovehard.

We’re back. To some it feels like it’s been a minute but this weekend was truly a blur. I can’t get into full detail just yet about all that occurred over the last 3 days, but all you need to know is…. it was a bloody good time. I’m exhausted beyond belief. Brooklyn took a lot outta me and I’m glad I got to experience what I did out there. Big ups to the 50+ people who came through and joined in on the adventure. Some good bonding times were had, no doubt. Stories and pics to follow tomorrow. For now, another catch up on sleep needs to happen. My little eyeballs are going to fall out if I don’t get in dem Zzzzzzzzzzz’s….

— Don’t ever let someone make you feel like your mind isn’t something worth investing in. You throw your deuces in the air and dip because you deserve to be treated better than that.
