Great news! One of my close friends/besties Bruna Mikan has her very own YouTube Channel. She has featured me and bestie Amani on her newest video about us creating mug recipes. Some were delicious and others were alright. It was fun and a great experience to shoot and cook with these lovelies.
I hope you all enjoy and subscribe to her YouTube Channel!
This weekend I binged watched Vogue’s 2016 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Series on its YouTube Channel. I loved every minute of it and I thought the process really pushed each designer. This truly shows detail, personality and hard work pays off. Anyone interested in fashion should watch this and learn how valuable it is to nurture new designers today.
I’m so happy for the runners up and the winners! They were all my favorite from the start, but I am not telling you who they are! You must watch first — NO SPOILERS.
Enjoy, the playlist here:
Yes…I know I have not written a new music Tuesday post in a while. However, I have a treat for you today and it is One Republic’s “Born.” This song is one of my favorites on their new album, “Oh My My.” It is beautifully written and it is simply a love song to the city. The city is filled with possibilities finding love, family and new life. I can personally relate to this song because when I moved to NYC for school I felt the same way. Since this is my last year of college, this song sums up my experience and future in this city. However, I understand I was not born here, I believe me finding my own roots is humbling.
For all the new New Yorkers, listen to the song here:
Eddie Borgo is on top of the world and I am so happy to see his jewelry will be featured at this Victoria’s Secret 2016 Paris Fashion Show. However, this time he and his team has created a more dazzling piece, the Fantasy Bra. IT IS STUNNING EVERYONE. LITERALLY…PERFECTION and it was so funny because when I first saw the bra online I did not know who designed it. I was like, “Hmm…that padlock and tassel look so familiar. Almost like Borgo’s.” Then soon enough, it was! To learn more, here is a quick video about the bra and article from VS YouTube Chanel and Vogue.com:
Bright lights are glowing because Monday, Dec. 5, 2016 CBS will be televising the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris. Yes, Paris! It will be the first time the show has been in the City of Light. Every time leading up to the show, I watch Victoria’s Secret Behind-The-Scenes YouTube videos and they are so insightful to watch. For instance, learning how the venue is chosen to model castings is a great way to learn how a fashion show is created and produced.
Let the countdown begin and get ready to put on your wings angels!
British fashion has always been posh and electric. There is many layers to British fashion and thanks to British GQ and British Vogue have created a video series called, “The Roots of British Style.” Each week, they will be posting a video on their YouTube channels and teach the public about the history of British Fashion. Here is the trailer bellow:
Personally, I love watching this series so far and I admire how the British value the art of education and learning. It is intriguing to see where all the British popular styles have come from and how its fashion revolutionized today.
Also, if you have spare time, check out British Vogue’s “The Future of Fashion with Alexa Chung: Series 1 & 2.” It is about teaching the fundamentals of today’s fashion industry from being a digital editor to a public relations director. It is a great series to check out if you are also interested in working in fashion.
I would love to hear your comments about your thoughts on the two series and recommendations on other fashion educational videos; so please comment below!
Monday is almost done, but do you need a pick-me-up? Why not try listening to Saint Motel’s “Move.” It is 70s inspired 360 degree music video and it will leave you dancing! Literally, I have been listening to this all day and their new album, “Saintmotelevision.”
So play it on repeat…NOW.
The concert series my roommate, Amani and I have been to three concerts for the past three weeks has finally ended. The last show we saw was Thursday, September 29 at the Highline Ballroom.
Literally, I thought Amani was joking I was not prepared seeing Thirdstory. Ha…she was right. The whole time I was speechless and I could not believe how unreal they are. Their vocals were perfect and they even sounded better live.
They had done many of their covers and a few original songs. It was a blessing to see their last show of their tour. PEOPLE, GO SEE THEM LIVE AND LISTEN TO THEM NOW. ASAP.
Hopefully, Thirdstory’s new album will come out soon…time will tell.
Here is a favorite song of mine from their “Searching EP” and it is called, “G Train.” It is witty, expressing their hardships not getting the girl they want to bed and end up taking the slowest train back home — which is the G train.
My best friends and I recently went to see Young the Giant at Radio City Music Hall. The band is spectacular live and it was one of the most fun concerts I have been to. Literally, they were perfect live and had two encores toward the end of the show. If you have the chance to see them on tour now. GO. YTG IS WORTH IT.
The song I chose is “Mr. Know-It-All” because it reflects what is happening in today’s culture. Many people constantly feel alone, even with the help of technology and people do not really know who the real person is sometimes. It is sad to see we’re all “Mr. Know-It-Alls” because people constantly feel judged too and we are in the age of the overthinking.
Enjoy this song and happy Tuesday everyone!
Rap is an universal genre of music and one Renaissance man has changed French rap. His name is Stromae and he is an overall artist. There is a deep meaning to each of his songs that discuss the real issues people have in today’s society. Stromae takes his artwork further and uses his music videos that cleverly connect with his powerful lyrics. The song, “Carmen” is profound and explains how consumerism has taken over society. Also, he mentions how it is ironic to see how people are only obsessed getting followers on Twitter by feeding the Twitter bird. Sadly, everyone dies and are not remembered. The cycle never ends and the Twitter bird finds its next victim.
He is poet and recently he posted his full concert, Racine Carrée Live on YouTube. His music speaks for itself and the use of special effects is captivating. Enjoy the live concert!
