It’s my first time at New York Fashion Week (#NYFW) and it was a visual sensation, both stunning and surprising. Not only do I see well dressed people on the runway and parties but also on the streets! Everywhere I looked was a well put outfit. It’s a very inspiring and a fully charged city. I can’t believe that I had the energy that I did when I was there. I can’t wait for my next fashion week, this time i’m amping up the game and making a statement! :)
Be on the look out for my #NYFW Visual Diary coming soon.

The moment I heard “Bound 2,” I was immediately captivated by the piano chords and Charlie Wilson’s vocals. I hoped and prayed that they would make it into a full song, no disrespect to Yeezy but that hook was a scene stealer! Thanks to the London based drum and bass duo, Sigma, they reworked the song and made magic. Not exactly what I prayed for but it will do and its pretty damn good—can’t complain! This single is getting them noticed and pretty soon they should have an album out (no release date as of yet, but working on it).Comment Here →
Coming back from a 3-day weekend is always a struggle. Vérité explains why she thinks we have struggle coming back to reality.
“Weekend winds up sitting in a weird place for me, caught between
exhilaration of ‘you could bring me to life’ and the reality that we
were only fooling ourselves into thinking we were alive while we
ourselves from reality.”

Weekend is the perfect jam by this New York songstress, it has energy that translates through the beat but also has a little bit of that Lana Del Rey melancholia talk-sing through the lyrics. This singer-songwriter has a way with her words and the ability to create attention-grabbing melodies. She is currently working on her first EP
Last night’s impromptu show that I watched had Erik Hassle opening for the NONONO. I’ve been a fan of his but this was my first time seeing him perform live. A brilliant artist already on his way to US stardom in no time. His heart crushing lyrics with glorious pop hooks is an undeniable sign of a hit maker. Talk About It is one of my favorite tracks that he performed last night.Comment Here →
A couple of weeks back, I got to enjoy the Stern Grove Festival on it’s 77th season which they invited the very talented Yuna to perform. I was very excited to finally see her hit the stage and perform her music after discovering her two years ago. It was the perfect location, the perfect weather, and the perfect music—what more can you ask for?! Don’t take my word for it, watch the video above.
Thanks to Scotterpop Studio for capturing the essence of what this festival is about!
Check out more of Yuna’s songs here.Comment Here →
You’ve probably seen the viral video for this track circulating the web by now (if you haven’t then you’re missing out). The infectious dance track has a 90s club vibe written all over it and i’m totally eating it up! I think it’s time to bust out those dancing shoes and break it down with the Roger Rabbit or maybe the Running Man. You know you want to.

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.
It’s no surprise living in a fog ridden city (thanks KarltheFog) that sweaters have become a staple of mine. And not to mention they’re comfy and can keep me warm, just like a second layer of skin (which this one looks like!). I’m not one to shy away from patterns and prints when it comes to clothing but i’m very particular on how they look. This graphic print was the perfect combination of what I like to call, subdued-attention. It’s not too loud with the color scheme but is definitely a looker for it’s intricate pattern placement.

Jeremih and Shlohmo has surprised us by dropping their awaited EP together via twitter on the 17th, with Shlohmo plainly tweeting “nomorenomorenomore” (which doubles as their website). The whole EP is meant to bump through those hot summer nights, and today just happens to be hump day!
You can download the full EP here.

Take me to a place where we both don’t have to face the things we face,
there’ll be Nothin on My Mind, Nothin on My Mind
This remix of Nothin On My Mind will have you wanting to escape your 9-5. The 18-year old Norwegian producer is seriously impressing me with his tropical house vibes (which he masters) in a similar trail as Kygo. Bearson has the ability to block out industry noise/trends and just make feel good music! The idea of mixing the Astronomyy’s urban surf sound lends perfectly to his style, highlighting the chill glimmer vibe of the track. Now, let’s begin our journey.
Close your eyes and change your scenery for a bit, escape your worries with me—just dive into the music. We could all use a mental cleanse from this grind!

New comer, Ryn Weaver goes unnoticed with Octahate. It has all the elements you need for a summer song—breezy percussion, a catchy hook, and a team of hit makers. The track was assembled by star-studded producers, from Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos, Charli XCX (“Boom Clap”), Benny Blanco (Kesha, Katy Perry) and Cashmere Cat (who’s remixed the likes of 2 Chainz and Lana Del Rey) So it’s no surprise that this is already an internet sensation!Comment Here →
I designed this linen tee for the PC▽P Collection. It’s inspired by letting the darkness/negativity leave your body so that the only thing remaining is happiness and love.
How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d
― Alexander Pope, Eloisa to Abelard

Sam Smith does a heart wrenching rendition of the late Whitney Houston’s classic dance hit, “How Will I Know”. It’s undeniable that his vocals can do no wrong but to conjure the chills is a sign of pure genius. The arrangement and choices made on this track vocally are right on point. He can possibly be the Male Adele, if I do say so myself. Slowing the pace down gives the lyrics a lot deeper meaning.Comment Here → blog comments powered by Disqus
