“You Can’t Do That!”

I’m gonna come back and act as if I wasn’t on a hiatus for a really long time. However, I’m pretty sure “You Can’t Do That!” in life. Right?

My friend Carolyn Paine is a comedian, dancer, choreographer, writer, singer, radio host and CAT LOVER. Oh, did I mention that she’s entering the Women in Comedy Festival? She is and I was so honored that I was asked to participate. The theme for this year is “You Can’t Do That!”

Inspired by the political climate around her, Carolyn decided to take all of her talents, along with some talented friends to create an interesting “Stand Up For Your Rights!” through comedy. Adam Sarette and Christian Daniel Kiley helped with the writing and filming of this project. It’s catchy. It’s sassy. A whole lotta of fun to help with as well.

Good luck Carolyn!!!

Eli Escobar: Thank You SoundCloud

Escobar Eli Escobar might have been the greatest DJ that I’ve discovered on SoundCloud recently. A veteran of the NYC nightlight scene, he released his début album “Up All Night” on June 2. This is one of the best albums I’ve heard in a while.

“Seein U” is such a great song to feel the vibe of summer. It gives you that feeling of remembering that special someone while taking you on a journey through New York.

Confessions of a Shopaholic: ALANGOO.com

I feel this really calm feeling when I go to ALANGOO.com and I think you will like the pieces. If you're looking for unique, hand-made underground designers with Persian, Middle-Eastern and Central Asian backgrounds and show that in their work, you've come to the right place.

There’s everything from throw pillows for around the house to intricately detailed scarves. There’s clothing for men(I  already have my eye on a few pieces), women and children. Before, I go to anything further, I really can’t decide though:

The Vest?
The Vest by Souri Yazdan                                          or                   Hand Tailored Jacket by Souri Yazdan           

The jewelry is handmade too!

So before you start your day, I want you to take a look at ALANGOO.com and let me know what is it you like on there. I’m definitely a fan of the gorgeous AtoOs Collect brand on there. The shawls are absolutely stunning and I checked the designer’s profile out, she’s Houston based. I have support fellow people from Houston!

Enjoy your day!

Obsession Confession: Studded Thangs

Only at Patricia Field's
Only at Patricia Field’s

Ever since I bought my Christian Louboutins studded loafers, I’ve been hooked on studs! Studded clothing is great. Studs give a little bit of edge without going overboard. However, you are entitled to go overboard and that’s ok too. Nobody’s judging!

Right now, I’m wearing studded items such as shoes. In particular sneakers, I think it’s super fun on sneakers and who doesn’t want to have a slight bit of edge in their style?!

Here We Go:

Elevation In Denim by YRU

YRU Elevation Denim

Why? What’s So Great?:

Aside from the fact that it’s denim that’s slightly destroyed. It’s a 2 inch platform that is styling and profiling. NO, really though it’s amazing. I love the fact that I have some height but not too much. It’s a super comfortable and controlled walk except that when I wore them home, I literally fell as I walking from the train. OH DRE!

One Minor Flaw:

Since I’m used to walking in a wedge, a flat platform is a little bit more difficult to navigate but whatever. You live and let learn. Right?

I like this brand so much that I am keeping it to myself!!!!

Azealia Banks aka Yung Rapunxel

                                                              Yung Rapunxel  

Femcee Azealia Banks known for her feuds with people such like Nicki Minaj and Jim Jones decided to give her fans a nice surprise. Two weeks early of the March 26th iTunes release, she dropped the newest single “Yung Rapunxel” off her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste due to drop this summer.

The Lil Internet produced track is really hard to describe. It’s inaudible for the most part but the futuristic beat with Banks low register rap skills is nothing short of amazing. I envision the video is going to be completely flawless since this is the lead single. Personally, I would love to see Jontè as the choreographer for the music video.

Check It Out Below:

Don’t worry, she’s still fighting with people Almost getting into a fist fight with the lead singer from Stone Roses while on tour in Australia and basically calling new Def Jam recording aritst Rita Ora “Rihanna’s Understudy”………..
