Rufus Wainwright

2 Dec

Rufus. Wainwright.

Words can’t describe how I feel about this man. He takes my breath away. Rufus definitely makes my top ten favorite artists EVER. Every time I listen to his songs I swear my heart races. His lyrics come from him, not some writer hiding behind his shadow. I think that he doesn’t get enough recognition as an artist. His last album “All Days are Nights: Songs for Lulu” should have be nominated for a grammy. Since words can’t describe him, I will let his music talk for him. He has written some of the best ballads I’ve ever heard. I don’t understand why more people aren’t flocking to buy his Cd. Every time I play his record it puts me at such ease with everything around me. At that moment in time, I’m just sucked into his universe listening to his words. I hope you enjoy. P.S. Rufus is a BEAST at the piano. Below are some of my favorite songs/music videos of his. Enjoyed best on a rainy day.

Where should YOU be shopping on Black Friday?

20 Nov

As I sit here listening to Pandora Radio play Christmas music, I just can’t help but feel SO excited for this holiday season. Like honestly, I’m so ready. It’s not even about getting presents that makes me feel so festive (ok, part of it is). It’s more about being able to spend time with family & friends around a fireplace, dressed in cozy sweaters, and drinking eggnog or hot cocoa. I”m a big holiday person. I just feel like it puts everyone in a wonderful, happy mood :) Christmas seems to be starting earlier, and earlier each year. I feel like I contribute a lot to the reason why it’s starts earlier AND earlier each year. Is it awful that I started listening to Christmas music as soon as November 1st hit? I know, right? SHOOT ME.

Listen to me just rabbling on. Let’s get down to what this blog post is really about! BLACK FRIDAY. I look to it as a national holiday. It’s a day where you get some of your favorite things for a very, VERY good deal. If your willing to beast the crowd at 5 a.m., I promise it will be worth it in the end. The holiday season is when people spend the most money. Unfortunately, this year I have to work and I won’t be able to shop, but I’m glad I’m working so that I can make money to actually afford to give people gifts! I’ve done my research on Black Friday and here are some of the place that are having the BEST sales. Enjoy! I also will be posting another blog post, today :) It’s just a little something that I’m sure your going to love!

The Sport’s Person:

Dick’s Sporting Goods: Doors open @ 5 am

Specials: fitness apparel, sporting goods, and plenty more!

The BIG Saver Person:

Wal-mart: They actually will being there sales starting at MIDNIGHT after Thanksgiving. Super early! Their doorbuster items will begin at 5 am.

Specials: computers, laptops, TV’s, blu-ray dvd players (my personal favorite) and much more!

Kmart: Doors open @ 5am

Specials: jewelry, plasma TV’s, toys and plenty more!

The Office Junkie Person:

Staples: Doors open @ 6am

Specials: laptops, office chairs, digital cameras, and more!

Office Max: Doors open @ 7am

Specials: printers, GPS systems, TV’s and more!

These are the stores that most people are likely to go to on Black Friday. I know usually the big mall department stores will open as early as 4 am just depending on the city your living in! A lot of clothing store will have different sales also! ONLINE is also a great of doing Black Friday so you don’t have to fight the crowds and the deals might even be better online! The sales online usually start as the same time as the sales in the store.

Check out these websites to be updated about Black Friday sales!

Strip Me.

8 Nov
“Strip Me” is a fairly new single from Natasha Bedingfield. I stumbled upon the video on YouTube and I instantly fell in love with it. I seriously can’t stop watching it. She has the prettiest face, ever. Her make-up is amazing in this video. My favorite look is when she has the dark, red lips with the dark, grey-ish eye makeup. Also, her outfits are SO her. I can’t get enough of it! I also like the message of the song. You have to listen to the words. The lyrics will be posted after the video. I hope you guys enjoy :)
Lyrics
La la la la la la
Everyday I fight for
All my future somethings
A thousand little wars
I have to choose between
I could spend a lifetime
Earning things that I don’t need
But that’s like chasing rainbows
And coming home empty
And if you strip me,
Strip it all away
If you strip me,
What would you find
If you strip me,
Strip it all away
Ill be alright

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
but you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4

I dont need a microphone, yeah,
To say what I been thinking
My heart is like a loudspeaker
Thats always on eleven
And if you strip me,
Strip it all away
If you strip me,
What would you find

If you strip me,
Strip it all away
I’m still the same

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
but you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4

‘cuz when it all boils down
At the end of the day
It’s what you do and say
That makes you who you are
Makes you think about it,
Think about it
Doesn’t it
Sometimes all it takes is one voice

Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
but you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4

Current Obsessions.

This is just a short list of my obsessions as of right now. They can change on a day to day basis!

Rachel Zoe. Stylist to the Stars.

25 Oct

Rachel. Zoe.

She serves as a stylist to the stars, while she herself is the ULTIMATE star. I considered her a modern day fashion icon. She has mastered the art of styling. She always has the most unique, glamourous clothes to style her clients with…PLUS herself. She styled such stars as: Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway, and Cameron Diaz. They ALWAYS look so fabulous and they always keep to their own original style. I would die to have a job like Rachel Zoe. She’s so passionate about what she does. If you watch her show The Rachel Zoe Project, you know just how dedicated she is to her job. I always look to her when I need inspirations for creating a new outfit. Hopefully she will give you inspiration as well.

Stay tuned for a new post soon. I have a feeling the next might be about one of my favorite artists.

WHOA. RDJ Flashback.

23 Oct

While I was doing my usual job of browsing through YouTube videos, I came across this video where Robert Downey Jr. was hosting back in the 1990s. He looks SO different than he does now. Let’s just say Mr. Downey Jr. gets better with age. He is the epitome of sexy. MHHHMMMM. I just can’t get enough of him. Anyways…..I thought this clip was super appropriate to share with you guys since his movie, “Due Date” is coming to theaters in just a few weeks (November 5th). Most people don’t know that this wasn’t RDJ’s first gig on SNL. In the 1980s, Robert was actually a cast member for about a year. I personally think Robert is born to do comedy. He just has this natural humor about him, BUT HEY, don’t get me wrong he still rocks the shit out of his dramatic roles as well.

I hope you enjoy this trip back in time!

Isn’t he a natural? You gotta love him.

Stay tuned for more posts to come!
