Don't Save Me Now

This Drifter Tee is one of my go to uniform, it has all the right qualities in what I look for—length, fit, fabric, and style. I like my tees a little bit looser but with a slim fit, it feels more comfortable that way and less restricted. This one in particular has raw edges on the the neckline and interesting rips/cuts on the hem and it matched perfectly with this abandoned barracks location!

Lately i’ve been in a mood and maybe it’s weather gloom slowly creeping up on us. Whatever it is, I need to get the funk out of it. I either find a way to get the sunshine back or ride the gloom for a bit, I think the latter. Sometimes it’s good to feel melancholic and dark. xoV is the perfect supplement to this mood and atmosphere. His dark pop crooning sends chills to my spine, just like it should. Boys Don’t Cry is the first single off his new EP in the same title. If this is in indication of the rest of the EP then we know to expect some catchy hooks and noteworthy sounds but with a dark twist to it. It will definitely be a break from the happy land tunes we’re use to hearing from the pop world. 

On a side note—I have to say Sweden is killin’ the pop game as of late.

Tensnake released this slow burner last year and i’m rediscovering it again and wanted to share it with you. This track is simple with  smooth and delicate tones. I feel that this track was way ahead of it’s time— current pop songs are slowly moving towards the spacey sparse echoing production ala FKA Twigs. This was Tensnake’s version of pop, he doesn’t listen to what’s out there but rather creates what he wants to hear on the radio.

Josef Salvat, a London based singer-songwriter releases a chart friendly hit, Open Season. Unlike his previous single, Hustle, this is a lot more upbeat with a wider reach pop sound. His crooning low voice harmonizes  with the high pitch backing vocals thats mixed to the track that creates a great contrast and makes the song a standout. It’s definitely Open Season and he’s ready to declare his spot on the charts with this hit.

If by now you still haven’t heard of the overnight swedish pop breakthrough of the year, Tove Lo, then you must be out of your freakin’ mind! From a lackluster of pop hits this year, Tove Lo is the answer for the pop void in our lives. I’ve gotten a chance to listen to her full album and it is superb. The record that spans through sex, love, and pain in a raw and personal perspective. I cannot wait for you to sink your ears into her new album which drops on Sept. 30. In the meantime, watch her second offering from her EP—’Not On Drugs’ (which is also included in the LP). It’s a visual spectacle that pairs perfectly with the song.

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).

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 
the exhilaration of ‘you could bring me to life’ and the reality that we 
were only fooling ourselves into thinking we were alive while we distract 
ourselves from reality.”

—Vérité


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.

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!

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.

—Mark Twain



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.
