PLAY > Mike WiLL Made It - 23

Okay, so besides the fact that I'm a huge fan of Mr. 23 himself, Michael Jordan, and of Juicy J (Three 6 Mafia was my shit in high school) ...I think Miley Cyrus is surprisingly refreshing on this track?  I put a question mark because I'm still not sure of what I actually think...but I'm intrigued.


Her makeup looks flawless, and I'm pretty jealous of all her Jordan gear too.  Ahh and the blinged out basketball...WANT!  The rapping isn't half bad either...I think she pulls it off.  Her tongue that ALWAYS seems to be out nowadays made one too many appearances in this video, and as much as I want to say I don't get it...I get it.  Do your thing Miley.

*sidenote* I really like Miley's song '#GetItRight' from her Bangerz album which will be released on Tuesday!  It's upbeat and super flirty and I just love it.  Also, I'm going to a pre-season Bulls game tomorrow and will get to watch Derrick Rose play since his recovery from his ACL injury!  Be excited for me!

PLAY > Wale - Bad (Rihanna Remix)

Baby maker!  I can't. stop. listening...

  

Now, I don't want to play favorites, but I think the remix version featuring Rihanna is wayyy better than the original version, which featured Tiana Thomas.  Rihanna's island flavor and 'bad gal RiRi' reputation gave this song just what it needed to really catch fire.

Happy listening and have a uber-sexy weekend everybody!

BUY or DIY: 10 Awesome Housewarming Gifts

My friend Taylor is having a housewarming party this week which got me thinking about housewarming gifts.

One of the best housewarming gifts I have ever received was also the simplest and most practical.  I was moving to Iowa City (IA) for college, and it was going to be my first time living away from home.  My mother being the best-mom-ever made that transition so much smoother by putting together the cutest box of home essentials.

The box included:
3 oz. bottle of Goo Gone
1 spray bottle of Resolve
1 can of Raid
2 small Crazy Glue tubes
1 roll of duct tape
1 roll  of clear tape
1 box of push-pins
1 mini tub of spackle paste
1 pack of rechargeable AA batteries
1 pack of rechargeable AAA batteries
Battery charger
Hammer
Scissors
Crank flashlight
Emergency Cash (an envelope with $200...pretty sure I spent this on everything but emergencies)

I wish I had taken a photo of it so I could show you guys now, because this box was EVERYTHING.  And by everything, I mean junk drawer heaven in a box.  The contents were utilized for multiple purposes, although, I can't say if I ever used Raid for anything.  My roommates and I lived in a really nice, clean dorm room, so thankfully we never had any insect infestations.  Anyways, this was easily my most favorite housewarming gift of all time.  I'm a true Virgo and love anything practical, so bravo mother, you did so good.

So, let's go back to the topic of Taylor's party this week.  I think a home essentials box is a great idea, but not everyone is supermom and can whip up something like that in a snap.  This leaves me yet to decide on what to get her, but I've brainstormed a good storm and managed to pull together some great ideas.  I made this list to help me, but I think it will help you too.

1.) Artwork
Paint something yourself or purchase a piece of art.  I'm obsessed with this art print that I found on Etsy...would be a very easy DIY project.
Custom Longitude and Latitude Print - ETSY

2.) Cooking Luxuries 
Gourmet oils and spices are coveted items in the kitchen, because they heighten the food experience.  La Tourangelle is one of my favorite brands for oils.  Great value and quality.
Infused White Truffle Oil - LA TOURANGELLE

3.) Fancy Totes
I'm a big fan of cute beverage transporters, and this 6-pack carrier is amazing!  Don't forget the beer!
Wooden Six Pack - TERRAIN or AMAZON

4.) Food Kit
A fun gift to put together and to enjoy with other house guests.  A s'mores kit or ice cream sundae box would be amazing!
DIY Ice Cream Sundae Box

5.) A Good Book
Why not gift a book lover one of their favorite things!  This book has stunning photographs...
The Art of Living by Claudia Steinberg - AMAZON

6.) Houseplants
A plant can do wonders.  It improves air quality...improves moods.  A potted plant would make an excellent gift, but how about this for a change of pace?
Hanging Glass Bubble - WEST ELM

7.) Monogrammed Things
Some people think monogram is cheesy, but I think it's incredibly stylish.  Especially when it's printed on a beautiful coffee mug...or a decorative throw pillow.
Monogrammed Mug - ANTHROPOLOGIE

8.) Mood Lighting
Candles are a standard go-to, but why not try an air purifying Himalayan salt lamp?
Himalayan Salt Lamp - TARGET
(can also be found at world stores and hippie stores)

9.) Table Twinkle
Anything metallic always adds a nice touch of sparkle to a living room.
Silver Street coasters - KATE SPADE or NORDSTROM

10.) Tasteful Tunes
You can't go wrong with these...perfect for all the music lovers in your life...and popcorn munchers.
Vinyl Record Bowl - MODERN ARTISANS

What have you guys given or received as housewarming presents?  Have any favorites?  Please comment below with more ideas!  I would love to hear about your experiences :)

Sound familiar?  If you're like me and think Mase - 'Feel So Good' and DJ Kool - 'Let Me Clear My Throat' are classics, then you will (or should) appreciate Kool & the Gang.


Now you have to admit, 'Feels So Good' and 'Let Me Clear My Throat' wouldn't have been as infectious without the funk of 'Hollywood Swinging'.

Just saying...

Red Valentino - Leopard Print Faille Coat

Oh hi, can I haz you??







































I've been daydreaming about this leopard flower print coat and have been stalking it on TheOutnet.com (Net-A-Porter.com's sister site) for a while now.  The original price of this jacket is a hefty $1180.  

It is currently for purchase on The Outnet for $424.80.  That's 64% off...a savings of $755.20!  Still no chump change, but I couldn't resist...

Yes, I bought it!  Eee!  

Will I regret it?  Not sure yet, but I hope not.  I should be receiving my package soon and will let you guys know if this coat is as luxurious as the Valentino brand.

L.E.I. Short Overalls

The original rompers are making a comeback!  Here are some photos from the weekend -- rompin' around town on a Saturday night! 





Isn't my friend, Yazmine, just gorgeous?!

I was picking up a few, much-needed beauty products from Walmart the other day and the sight of these L.E.I. shortalls had me feeling panicked.  I was passing by the juniors section, of all sections [smh], and felt my 25-year-old eyeballs committing a fashion crime.  My mind was telling me "don't stop Jenn...keep it moving", but my heart...my heart was racing and wondering why I hadn't thrown them in my shopping basket yet.

In my baby Jenn years, I wore tons of overalls and jumpers, so anytime I see them, I get an overwhelming sense of comfort and nostalgia.  It's unsettling how your past can subconsciously dictate your future decisions.  Which is what I suppose happened in this case...

For the past couple of years, I've been making an effort to only purchase wardrobe essentials that will last me for years to come, so the thought of buying overalls became quite a controversial topic.  I think overalls are such strange closet staples as they are classic pieces but can also be too trendy.  I guess it's more about how they're styled but regardless, it had me questioning the value of having a pair in my closet -- they're classic but are they timeless?  Will I wear these often enough for me to actually invest in a pair? 

As I recall, overalls do make certain tasks, like using the john, a bit more trying, but they're cute and always fun to wear. And at the bargain price of $15-16, I couldn't not buy them.  These shortalls were a lovely, serendipitous find, and even though they aren't made of the highest quality, they're actually exactly what I wanted.  They are medium in weight and in denim color and pair really well with a plain tank or crop top.  I think they will transition nicely into the fall season as well.  Needless to say, the baby Jenn in me is really happy that I got them :)

[Review & Demo] RIMMEL - Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

I could live without most makeup, but mascara is a product I cannot live without.  Mascara makes a significant difference to my whole beauty routine, because it really helps open up my eyes to make them look wider, brighter, and more awake.  I love the mascara magic!

So naturally, I was really excited to try this new Rimmel mascara that Influenster sent me.  I filmed a quick review and demo if you guys want to check it out, otherwise, the rest of this blog post will go over my thoughts on this new product.


PRODUCT INFO:
NEW LASH ACCELERATOR ENDLESS MASCARA stretches your lashes beyond the limits for instantly longer and remarkably stronger lashes!  With the Grow-Lash Complex of Procapil®, Keratin and Antioxidants, lashes are conditioned day after day. After 30 days, lashes appear longer, stronger and more numerous!  The lash-catching brush gives you perfect separation for a clump-free result and the new micro-fibre formula allows lashes to stay flexible, never stiff or brittle. 

WHERE TO BUY: 

Hitting the shelves July 2013!  Will be available in stores that carry Rimmel products.
Before & After (via Instagram)
QUICK TAKE:  I loved the electric yellow-green packaging.  I also thought the design was standard, but pretty ergonomic.

USAGE TIPS:  If this formula makes your lashes droop, then use it over a mascara that holds your curl better.  For example, I apply Covergirl's Lash Blast mascara first and then wiggle Rimmel's mascara at the base of my lashes to thicken and darken them.  

THE VERDICT:  I usually buy waterproof mascaras, because waterproof formulations hold the curl of my lashes much better, but I actually liked this non-waterproof mascara.  It doesn't hold the curl as well as I would like, but it doesn't totally ruin the curl.  The formula is really rich and smooth and doesn't flake at all.  The brush is really sturdy and grabs on firmly to coat each lash evenly.

JULEP Maven: Sail Into Summer (June 2013)

I thought this month's nautical inspired box was so appropriate and so adorable!  The beachy theme and preppy hues had me itching to put on some boat shoes and the stripeyest dress I own.


I went with the 'Classic with the Twist' maven box this month which included Martha (polo pink creme), Kennedy (khaki creme), and DD Creme in Light (brand new to Julep).

I really love how Martha is both feminine and sporty.  It's a really simple and clean shade that's wonderful for summer.

Kennedy, on the other hand, looks really drab against my skintone.  It doesn't do anything for me.  I was hoping it would be close to coloring of my skin, so I could use it as a nude out nail shade, but unfortunately, it has some unflattering green undertones that looks odd against my skin.

The DD Creme works pretty well.  It's not the best I've used.  It's not the worst I've used.

I go into a little more detail about each product in the video(below), so please watch for additional information!

"...our Great Depression is our lives" - Chuck Palahniuk

"I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War’s a spiritual war… our Great Depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won’t. And we’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off." 
Fight Club (1999)

PLAY > Ryan Leslie - Rescue U

Listening to Ryan Leslie sing is incredibly satiating.  I'm forever consumed by the rich, buttery tone of his voice.

Anyways, onward.  Though, I love the whole Transition (2009) album, 'Rescue U' may be my favorite track from the entire compilation due to the number of times I have revisited it over the years.  It's a bonus track, so thankfully, my obsessed-fan self purchased the deluxe album.  'Promise Not To Call' is another top favorite of mine from the album, and it's also a bonus track.  What the heck!  Why would he do this?!  People who paid money for the regular album are definitely missing out.

This was the best version I could find on YouTube.  Asraf's keyboard intro is quite good, so it's doesn't completely downgrade the song.

Pardon his choices in clothing, this video was shot around 2008-2009.

PLAY > Bruno Mars - Treasure

**For those of you who follow my Music Monday posts: I'm sorry to inform you guys that I've decided to retire Music Monday from my blog.  Though I found fulfillment in sharing a playlist with you guys every week, it was becoming more of a chore rather than actual fun.  Posting what I'm currently watching and listening to under the 'Press Play' tab of jenncyu.com will be my new undertaking.  I love music and sharing my favorite tracks too much to completely uproot it from my site.  Hope you guys enjoy the new posts!  As always, let me know your favorites.  I'm open to hear anything and everything!  Now...on with today's feature!**

I've been meaning to check out Bruno Mars' sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox (2012) for quite some time now, but my crazy schedule has really made it difficult.  I've listened to 'Locked Out Of Heaven' and 'When I Was Your Man' on the radio a whole bunch, but the rest of the album has been on the back burner for the longest time.  I finally got through the whole compilation yesterday, and all I can say is WOW.  This album may be better than his first.

I have been putting his soon-to-be new, summer single 'Treasure' on major repeat.  It's incredibly groovy, and I can't help but be happy and bust a move when I listen to it.  



Bruno Mars originally wanted to cover Breakbot's song 'Baby I'm Yours', but that was an understandable no-go.  Mars' solution to the problem?  Record 'Treasure' instead.  And thank goodness because it's one of my new favorite songs!  Yes, it's getting criticized in the media, because it's reminiscent of 'Baby I'm Yours', but I'm not mad about it.  'Baby I'm Yours' is another awesome discofied jam, and I'm happy that I have both songs in my life.
