Art X Positive Messages

Pink is a powerhouse singer and has been in the music industry for many years. I was more of a fan when she first came out but this inspirational video has me loving her all over again. She incorporates gymnastics in her video like she did at the Music Awards a couple of years ago and it seems like the sport is her new hobby. Cool chick. Most importantly, I love messages like these portrayed in songs/video/media. Watch the video, be inspired and live_Gold!


Music: Brandy Back in Session

R&B artist and former "Moesha" is back at it and better than ever! 90's music has sculpted my love for real R&B and her coming back collaborating with today's hottest artists makes me feel like hope is still alive. And it is really is. 

Brandy 's growth as an artist has shown and she is everywhere including the top of the charts. Even her 90's braids have trended back into the cycle. She is now gracing the cover of Vibe Magazine's October/November 2012 Issue and discussing in her interview dealing with Whitney Houston's passing and her future goals for the industry.
In the words of one of my favorite Stylist/Designers. These shots are EVERYTHING!

Old Brandy videos are the best, Go to "Read More" to view some of my Brandy Throw Back favorites and Brandy X Chris Brown "Put it Down"! =)

Fashion may be trendy but style is what you do with it, the confidence and taste you have!

Atlanta X Experimentation X Art

This past weekend I wandered a couple of blocks from my downtown home into Castleberry Hills. A small yet pleasant and cultured part of Atlanta. Luckily, Flux Night had recreated the nightlife on this brisk evening into an evening of art, people and culture, oh and lots of drinks. 

The vibe was very eclectic and relaxed. The night was crisp and electrifying with many peculiar smells piercing the air.  From your local hipsters to Tech students savoring the weekend to adults enjoying a night on the town with friends and partners. My sister and I conquered each art gallery and even networked while absorbing the essence of Atlanta art. Very Positive.

Are You Surprised? Chris X Rihanna X Karrueche

It has been blatantly obvious Chris and Rihanna are getting back together or in my opinion Young, Wild, Free and in love. There was a time when they were undercover giving people, (their fans and media) a chance to get over it and apparently now they just don't give any more fruit baskets.
I have no idea what Karrueche has been doing especially after Rihanna's infamous "Cake" remix came out, after pictures of them together surfaced, Chris and Rihanna sleep overs blasted in every magazine, after the 2012 awards show where she was disrespected and ignored, hell after THE OPRAH INTERVIEW!
Leave! Be a woman about yours, always.
I'd advise any female to never be the "other woman" "third party" or "last man out" and to open your own eyes and leave before you get hurt and dumped but of course we don't know all of it. From the looks of it and after watching Chris's video you get a better perspective and it is everything I thought it was.
One of the realest moments you will probably ever see, and you can only imagine the bitterness Karrueche is feeling and confusion Chris is going through while Rihanna is there being who she is. His unofficial lover.
"The Real Chris Brown" from on .
Ahhh that sweet pungent smell of love!
Apparently Kouche didn't see nor want to see the signs and now this media coverage is going to be crazy until the next big thing blows between the soul mates and the abandoned rebound lover.
