What’s up my Urban People! 

Are you ready for the holiday season?  Christmas and New Year are just around the corner! 🎄✨ I’m buzzing with excitement and can’t help but feel joyful as we embrace this festive season. 

As we bid farewell to this year and welcome the new one, many of us start to ponder over our New Year resolutions, new plans, and maybe even create some vision boards. It’s all about setting those goals and dreams for the upcoming year, right? 🌟

In the spirit of new beginnings, we’re thrilled to introduce a special section for our December/January issue – “Give the Gift Of Knowledge: Author Spotlight.” 📚 Imagine cuddling up with a heartwarming book that not only kicks off your new year with inspiration but also motivates you to pen down your own story. And guess what? You’ll also be supporting our incredible local authors! It’s a win-win!

A huge shout-out to our amazing advertisers – Turn 7, Create the Look, and B Pretty Luxe Extensions. Your support means the world to us! 🌍 To our dear readers, please show them some love and support. They’ve been instrumental in bringing our vision to life. 🌹

Oh, and have you heard? Urban X-pressions has launched a new website! 🎉 To all of you who grew up watching Urban X-pressions, we’re calling out to you. We’d love to hear your favorite memories! Share a video with us, telling us how Urban X-pressions was a part of your life, and encourage everyone to hop onto UrbanXpressions.com to become a member. Let’s keep the legacy alive!


Remember, “You be there for Us and We’ll Be there for You.” It’s this beautiful bond that keeps us going. 🤝

Thank you for being such an integral part of our journey. Your support and love mean everything to us. Let’s march into the new year with hope, joy, and a whole lot of excitement! 🎉

God Bless and Happy Holidays!
