Name That Tune

My cousin is pregnant too and on her registry they had these Rockabye Baby Lullaby Rendition CD's on their wish list, so I went home to check them out and I pretty much want every CD! They're CD's by some of the greatest artists and their most popular songs; but they're done in the sounds of an instrumental lullaby. They have greats like: The Beatles, Aerosmith, No Doubt, Cold Play, Bob Marley, The Beach Boys, Black Sabbath, Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Elvis Presley, Guns N Roses, and SOOOOOO many more. They just released a Madonna version!  To see more go here

Here's a sample from Madonna's CD.... can you name that tune?

A Tribe Called Quest Documentary

Last night I was fortunate to see the new documentary "Beats, Rhymes, & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest" at Tempe Marketplace. The reason I say I was fortunate enough is because well although Arizona is considered a top ten major city to live in, it's not technically known for its hip hop scene so when I found out a few months ago that Arizona would be screening the documentary, I bought the tickets as soon as I could.

This film is directed by comedian/actor, Michael Rappaport who is a huge hip hop lover and this documentary is his love letter to A Tribe Called Quest. I must say despite the controversy and animosity that was built up behind the scenes regarding it, I thought the documentary was very well done. The controversy started because Tribe wanted creative control over the film, but being as it's a documentary, Rappaport said it wasn't a good idea. Q-Tip felt that the documentary focused too much on the beef between he and group member, Phife and not on what Tribe did musically for the past 20 years. However, I don't agree with Tip, I mean, we want to see the rise, fall, and rise again of this legendary hip hop group. We want to see the truth and not just the sugarcoated side of it.

The documentary was entertaining, funny, full of hip hip history, and even tore at your heart strings a little at times. There was special guest appearances by the Beastie Boys, Common, Pharrell (yum), De La Soul, ?uestlove, and more. 

To check if it's coming to a city near you, click here! Don't sleep on this film!

SATC Prequel???

Rumor has it (although no contracts have been signed) that they may be coming out with a Sex and the City prequel which would follow Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte through their teens into their twenties, based on author Candace Bushnell's novels "The Carrie Diaries" (which I have and can't seem to get through because it is a yawn fest) and "Summer and the City."

The rumored cast includes Blake Lively as Samantha, Selena Gomez as Charlotte, Emma Roberts as Mirands, and Carrie's role would go to Elizabeth Olsen, the younger sister of Mary Kate and Ashley.

This is solely my opinion but don't eff with Carrie Bradshaw and the girls with this nonsense movie. Ugh. I hope this is all just a rumor!

Would you go see it?

Bath & Body Works Halloween Preview

I went on a shopping spree today and went into Bath and Body Works and saw their new Halloween line. Fall is my most FAVORITE season; just think of the scents (pumpkin, spice, and everything nice), the food, the weather, the holiday's.....I'm getting excited just thinking about it. Anyway, back to the new halloween line, I fell in love with EVERYTHING and I can't wait to get paid again so I can go. LOL. Here's a few of the things I can't wait to get. Go here to check out the rest of their new halloween items.


Watch The Throne Documentary

I have a love/hate relationship with Kanye West, but I can't deny the man is a musical genius, and pair him up with one of my favorite emcee's ever, Jay-Z, and you have yourself a dynamic duo that nobody can touch. With the release of their highly anticipated collaborative album entitled, "Watch the Throne" out August 1st, check the mini-documentary featuring interviews and behind-the-scene footage of their creative  process.

R.I.P, Amy Winehouse

Although we don't know the cause of her death just quite yet, it's hard to deny Amy's battle with drugs. Over the last few years, we've all witnessed her bizarre behavior and so we all speculate drugs were the cause of her death. Regardless if this is the case or not, I wish Amy peace now; as the daughter of a heroin addicted mother, I understand the disease Amy had and wish her family peace and comfort at this time.

Sally Hansen Complete Manicure

Now that I'm pregnant, let me just tell you, I am in NO mood to sit around for 45 minutes doing my nails, so when I saw a commercial for the Sally Hansen complete manicure nail polish, I couldn't wait to run out and buy some. I found some on sale at Target this past weekend, and fell in love!

  • There's 5 steps in one bottle: base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat.
  • It has Vita-Care technology for advanced wear, more shine, and nourishing care. I put the color on Sunday night and it's now Friday evening and it's still on with no touch-ups needed and what's even better, NO CHIPS! 
  • They have 42 salon inspired shades and are conveniently for sell at all major drug stores. The price ranges from $4-$6
  • The brush is a little awkward but once you get used to it, it's easy peasy. 
Here's the color I got - Model Behavior 

Baby On Board

Some of you have hit me up saying I've been M.I.A lately and well I have a good excuse! I'm pregnant with my first child. I am beyond excites, thrilled, blessed, and very very much scared. Now that I am out of my first trimester I should be able to post more often..... if I can stop being lazy. LOL. I know a few of  you have kids, any advice?

Gwen Stefani Launching Children's Line!

I'm sooo excited. Gwen Stefani is teaming with our favorite store Target to bring major fashion to tots. She will be launching a children’s clothing line called Harajuku Mini at Target stores and starting November 13.

The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed,” said Stefani. “Target has given me the creative freedom to design kid’s clothing that is different than most anything you usually see out there with great quality, attention to detail and most of all, available at amazing prices.”
As the name indicates, Harajuku Mini for Target will feature Japanese-inspired fashion forward designs priced from $3.99 to $29.99. The line is described as “Japanese street-style and infused with a Pop Art aesthetic”.

Way to Go, New York!

The New York state Senate voted in favor of same-sex legislation on Friday by a vote of 33-29. Governor Andrew Cuomo is expected to sign it into law soon and should go into effect 30 days later, meaning same-sex couples could begin marrying in NY by midsummer! 

New York now joins Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and the District of Columbia. 

What state will follow next??? Perhaps a state on the West Coast??? 

Equality for all! 

Jessica Biel and Pharrell Williams

Check out Jessica Biels new commercial for Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara. The actress stars opposite another baby daddy of mine, Pharrell Williams (who also wrote and produced the music in the ad).  Damn you, Jessica - you're so lucky! Love the song and commercial by the way (yes it's only because Pharrell is in it)
