MUSIC MONDAY ~ 1.28.2013

Happy Monday!  Here are the 5 songs at the top of my playlist this week.  I just can't get enough music!  Enjoy!

1.) JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - Suit & Tie (Lyric Video)
I seriously did not know what to do after watching this...I definitely needed a moment.  If this is just the lyric video, I may have a heart attack when the real video comes out.  Ahh!  Complete album is out MARCH 19TH!  Cannot wait!

2.) R. KELLY - Feelin' Single
Write Me Back is one of my all time fave albums and this is one of my favorite songs on it.  I've never seen the video till this week, and I was so mesmerized by the whole thing.  It's so good!

3.) THE SATURDAYS - What About Us
I got hooked on this song after watching Chasing the Saturdays on the E! network.  I love UK artists and I love these girls!  They're all so adorable!

4.) SEAN PAUL - She Doesn't Mind
For some reason, it took me a while to warm up to this song...I think I just couldn't get used to Sean's mohawk...but I'm finally feeling it--the song that is, not the mohawk.  Anyways, yay, +1 for Sean Paul.

5.) YOUNGSTOWN - I'll Be Your Everything
I totally forgot about this song until a discussion about boy bands came up.  Any body remember this song from the 1999 Inspector Gadget movie?  I was absolutely obsessed with it and apparently still am. Check the fashion from the late 90's...hilare.

Enjoy the playlist and as usual, more next week!  Let me know what are you listening to in the comments below!

MUSIC MONDAY ~ 1.21.2013

It's Music Monday time!  Here's my list for this week.  I've got a lot of party tracks on here due to my weekend trip for a Patrick's birthday.  If you guys wanna see the vlog from this past weekend, stay tuned!

1.) BRANDON & LEAH - Showstopper
I've introduced you guys to this couple in the past, but I just can't resist talking about them again.  Brandon Jenner and Leah Felder are such an inspiration with their beautiful marriage and music.  **Soulmates**  Anyways, enough about them...watch this video!  Best lyric video ever?  Probably.

*UPDATE* This song is the intro to the new Kourtney and Kim Take Miami episodes!  Aww, this is definitely an upgrade from the LMFAO's "I'm in Miami B*tch" intro for Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.

2.) JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - Suit & Tie (feat. Jay-Z)
This song gets an obvious mention, because it's by Justin Timberlake!  Team *NSYNC forever!  Song starts at 0:42

3.) LL COOL J - Take It (feat. Joe)
I get vibes of old school cool when I hear this...I absolutely love this track!  Joe sounds so right for this song.  What a fantastic pairing.

4.) MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS - Neon Cathedral (feat. Allen Stone)
The Heist is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time.  Neon Cathedral is amazing.  And Allen Stone's voice is EVERYTHING.

5.) SWIZZ BEATZ - Everyday Birthday (feat. Chris Brown, Ludacris)
Not the best song ever, but I think the video is perfect.  Exceeded my expectations.

Enjoy the playlist...more next week!  Let me know what are you listening to in the comments below!

5.) Marvin Gaye - Let's Get It On (Live Show #8 & Final)


Hope you guys enjoyed this weeks MM!  More to come next week!

JULEP | Nudes & Neons ( January 2013 )

Initially, I was hesitant to get the January box, but a part of me couldn't resist.  I'm so glad I decided to get the Nudes & Neons themed box, because it was just the pick-me-up I needed dead in the middle of winter.




Bette, an electric neon purple, had me leaning towards the 'Bombshell' box, but I went with my maven style, 'classic with a twist' which included the shades Madison and Grace.  I'm happy to say, I was not disappointed.  Gah! and the packaging is so amazing!

MUSIC MONDAY | 1.7.2013

Hello all!
Sorry I'm getting this up so late...I totally forgot it was Monday!
Can you believe it has already been a week into the new year?
CRAZYYY!
Anyways, this is my first MM of the year so I hope you guys like it.  

The few songs I have been loving (alphabetical order):

1.) AQUA - How R U Doin'?
Remember them?!  My iTunes started playing Barbie girl and I was like, you know, I've never listened to anything else by Aqua.  So I looked them up, and they aren't doing amazeballs, but they're doing well enough to still be making music...cool!  I still love Lene's high-pitched vocals contrasted against Rene's gravelly vocals.

2.) CHERYL COLE - Ghetto Baby
Though I love Lana Del Rey's bluesy voice on this song better, I think Cheryl did a great job.  I just love the song.  Very dark and sultry.
Lana Del Rey's version of Ghetto Baby...

3.) JAMES ARTHUR - Impossible
I love Shontelle's version and this version equally.  Really emotional and perfect.

4.) TYLER JAMES - Worry About You (feat. Kano)
I just love his voice!

5.) YASMEEN - Blue Jeans
An oldie but goodie.  I'm revisiting this song because my BFF Kels is getting married soon.  'Blue Jeans' reminds me of her, because I would burn her CDs wayy back in the day and this was one of our fave jams.  Love it!
