WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Feelin’ So Good

7 Jan


Don’t judge me, but one of my favorite songs is Jennifer Lopez’s Feelin’ So Good.  Not because it’s some amazing song, where JLo shows off her amazing singing prowess (hahaha), but solely because it really does make me feel so damn good! 

The song has been on heavy heavy rotation today, minus listening to J.Cole’s Friday Night Lights once (to motivate me on my grind), it’s the only things I’ve listened to today; on repeat.  New York can jade you and can make you down right unknowingly cranky, so I wanted to change up my vibe. 

I used to listen to Feelin’ So Good all the time in college when I was having a crap day. When this is on, I’m literally skipping down the street, smiling, and couldn’t have a care in the world, and HELLO Big Pun is on the track; try it out.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Elle Varner’s Refill

1 Apr



My boy put me onto Elle Varner last year, and although I wasn’t 100% sold on her single “Only Wanna Give It To You” featuring J.Cole, I thought it was catchy and there was something about her that I thought was refreshing.  So I was quite excited to find out she had a new song out, Refill, and had to check out the video.  I like the song, and video is kind of cute (I like stories I can follow), and she’s not half-naked, thank you Jesus!

I’ll be checkin’ more for Elle Varner, you should to.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN?: J.Cole on Fallon

2 Feb



Did you guys get a chance to check J.Cole on the Jimmy Fallon Show on January 31st?  If you missed it, you can check out the Grammy Nominee above, and if you look quickly, you’ll see the homie, DJ Dummy along with The Roots. 

I have to admit, I’ve seen Can’t Get Enough performed enough times at this point, so I mostly transfixed on clothing….Ummm yea, can we talk about Cole’s leather and denim jacket?? I need something like that in my life ASAP, i’d rock the hell out of it!

I’m not completely sold, but maybe this Rag & Bones jacket may work:

Wow what a crazy year!  So glad I can end the year right, in Barbados with a party spun by my favorite DJ, DJ Dummy.  For my Barbados heads, get ready!

Check out DJ Dummy (J.Cole and Common’s DJ) talk about roughing it out on tour, J.Cole’s initial reaction to the success of Cole World: The Sideline Story, and why he thanks crappy DJs.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN?: style

19 Nov


I’m just going to knock all these backed-up Style Diaries out on this nice Saturday!

The last full week of October was a pretty good but a busy week.  On Tuesday I got a chance to see my artist and homie, DJ Dummy, kill it at Best Buy theater along side the amazing J.Cole, here in NYC.  On Thursday I went downtown to shoot the beautiful and quirky Amel Larrieux perform at City Winery; great show!  Other than that it was midterms week, and I was working like a maniac, so I kind of forgot to shoot a few outfits.  But hey, Tuesday‘s (this week’s fav outfit) blouse from my favorite vintage store Loveday 31, in Astoria,makes up for that.

Wearing such an adorned top, which i might add is so loose and comfortable, can dress anything up with very little effort.

Also the key for me this week, and most weeks, is wear a good lipstick color, when you’re half dead like I was Wednesday and Thursday, (i was actually dead on Friday) a little color goes a long away, it makes you appear more awake and put together than you actually are.


Happy Dressing!
