Loni: Spending time with my family and when I’m out with my friends…nothing like good friends!!

YardEdge: What makes you want to get up out of bed in the morning?

YardEdge: If you could be doing anything you wanted, what would that be?

Loni: Time travelling.

YardEdge: What’s your favourite film?

Loni: Dont have a specific..I like lots!!

YardEdge: What makes you happy?

Loni: My nephew Daniel, baby animals…they’re too cute, makeup shopping, aum..shopping on a whole, as a matter of fact, and that I’m alive and surrounded by love.

YardEdge: What makes you sad?

Loni: I’m hardly sad…but all the negative things that’s happening in the world, killings, natural disasters that leave many dead, starvation…there’s too much of it!

    If you create dofollow bookmarking properly your site
    will get maximum traffic from search engines.
    I would say it is not only underestimated it is also underused because.
    Some social bookmarking services are Digg, Stumble – Upon,
    and Reddit.

    Westt LA Music grew up with rock n roll and they became a recognied force in this industry in the early 1970s.
    How has that affected how yoou arrange the harmonies.
    Sure, most of the ultra famous producers and DJ’s went to expensive schools and have their own lavish recording studios,
    but it was not always like that for them, and it doesn’t necessarily have tto be that way for you.

    Maybe Loni won’t want me to say but she’s been artistic and fashion foward from day one. From cool aid coloured hair to doing make up for the stars, a huge step and well deserved for a person with such vision and talent. I hope to be granted the opportunity to be worked on by a childhood friend and future business icon one day. All the best Loni.
