Today arguably the song that some people saved Vol. 3 turns 17. I distinctly remember when this song came out. I was a sophomore in highschool and very deep into my relationship with rap. Continue reading
Well……Monday is def doing is typical thing and acting like a Monday. So here’s some things to make the day better and change the tone for the week if you need it like I do!
- Light Candles and Meditate. Meditation has become a staple in my life in keeping me focused and managing stress. I like to meditate before I go to bed to help set the tone for my sleep and the following day. However if you are having a day like mine you may want to go out to your car (if you’re at work) and take 5. I really like THIS 5 min guided meditation that helps align your chakras. I literally vibrate after I’m done and feel ready to face the rest of the day. If I am at home, I really enjoy lighting candles generally but I also like to light them while I am meditating. I am really into these candles from Angelic Rose Essentials. Not only are they beautiful to look at they smell amazing even after blowing them out. The Postiano and ocean drive scents are sure to help with dealing with the “Mondays”.
Last night I decided to not stay home and get into “Empire” (still not) but instead kick it with my bros for a night of fellowship, Hennessy(champagne, wine), and Fun at Champagne and Cupcakes (yes…they really had cupcakes.) I usually don’t go out too much during the week especially when I have work in the morning. However, I was feeling festive and thought why not? I can sacrifice a little shut eye. The event was held at Parliament in Downtown Oakland, and the vibe was very cool. The music was great too (shout out to DJ Red Corvette and drinks were for the low. It happens once a month so keep your eye out for the announcement of the next one. Check out my pics below.
Her hair is amazing and her music is as well. I have been listening to Sza for a while now and I just can’t stop. This week her latest drop “Z” has been in heavy rotation. When I’m getting dressed in the morning for work, going out, or cleaning up; it always ends up on the playlist. Her voice is so smooth and her personal style totally reminds me of myself (now if I can just figure out her hair situation I will really flourish in these streets.)
*pop*bodyrolls*twerks* Repeat. This song has been on repeat in my car for the last couple of days. I have always enjoyed Big Krit’s music and always thought he was a looker. So when I fell upon this song I was so here for it. Take a listen and tell me your thoughts. I can’t write too much because I’m too busy dancing.
I’m not much of an R&B downtime music listener(Unless it’s ’90s R&B). I feel like the timing has be appropriate for me to be in that mindset. I won’t divulge into what those times are but take a wild (or a couple) of wild guesses. Anyway I love Hip-Hop music and I like to play my music really loud, especially in my car. So slow jams are not my choice when I am blasting music down the street. My father is a musician so I grew up having some kind of studio set up in my house (so blame him for the loudness, Thanks Dad!) Anyway PartyNextDoor dropped an album last week under my BFF Drake’s OVO sound umbrella. Continue reading
I have been a fan of Janelle Monae since I heard “Letting Go” on the “Purple Ribbin All Stars” compilation album. The musicality of her songs and the fact that she stays true to her creativity I truly admire. Plus shes great on stage and hella fine. This week she dropped a video for the song “Electric Lady” and I’m in love with it. I have been obsessing over this varsity jacket (that I’m afraid to share but may in another post) so when I saw Janelle wearing one in her video I knew it was a sign. It also has a college sorority feel to it and some of you know(or not) that I pledged in college so it totally tickled me. Anyway check out the video below its super cute and has cameos from TI, Joi, and choreographer Fatima (all three people I totally LOVE)
