MUSIC MONDAY - 2.25.2013

Hey everyone!  So this is the last Music Monday for February!  Enjoy!

1.) BAAUER - Harlem Shake
All the viral videos that have spawned from this song...amazefest.

2.) BRUNO MARS - When I Was Your Man
I have no words...this song is big stuff.

3.) THE MEND - Where Were You
Feel good music, baby!

4.) RIHANNA - Stay
Did you guys catch the Grammy performance of this song?  She looked exquisite and the song is perfect.  I'm also pretty obsessed with Mikky Ekko now.

5.) TIMEFLIES - Swoon
So can I say they're famous now?!  I've been following them on YouTube (TImeflies4850) for a couple of years, and I'm glad they're gaining more recognition...they even have their own VEVO channel now!

The Taste: Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC

The Taste is hands-down one of my new fave TV shows.  I have been cooking ever since I can remember, so this program is right up my alley.  I'm glad that it's a reality show I don't feel dumb watching, and I actually get quite inspired by it.  I also really like that it challenges me to test my own foodie knowledge.

Ludo, Anthony, Nigella, Malarkey

The Taste Sneak Peek/ Trailer

WHEN: 
Tuesday at 9/8c on ABC

QUICK TAKE:  I love Anthony Bourdain so featuring him as a judge definitely sparked my interest!

THE VERDICT: I've watched all the episodes so far and needless to say, I'm hooked!  I love the banter between Malarkey and Ludo.  Nigella is so beautiful to watch.  And Anthony's palette is incroyable.  His remarks are always snarky, refreshing, and spot on.  The contestants are also amazing and have created so many tasty spoonfuls I want to try.  I haven't pinpointed who my favorite chef/homecook is yet, but I'm having a great time narrowing it down right now.  I know there's a lot of TV out there, but I highly recommend this show, so give it a chance!

MUSIC MONDAY - 2.18.2013

Happy Monday!  This week's list is kinda teeny-bopperish.  Sorry, I'm not sorry?

1.) JUSTIN BIEBER - You Want Me
This is the best version I could find on YouTube.  I want a better version!!  I really like this song.  It immediately reminded me of Lloyd's 'Get It Shawty'.

2.) JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - Mirrors
It's Justin Timberlake...so obviously it's on the playlist.

3.) KELLY ROWLAND - Rose Colored Glasses
Kelly is so underrated.  This song is the jam and deserves a listen (times infinity).

4.) *NSYNC - Selfish
One of my favorite NSYNC songs.  It's just the best, and it really helps me hope for the best in future relationships.

5.) RYAN LESLIE - Making of 'Addiction'
I think I may have shown this video to people a million times.  The end gets me every time.  I just can't get enough!  Why is he not more famous...huh?!  #OBSESSED

MUSIC MONDAY ~ Valentine's Day Playlist

It's almost Valentine's Day so you're only allowed to listen to love songs this week! 
I will be jet setting to Florida on Valentine's Day, and I will definitely be listening to these faves.
(Jet setting makes me sound so fancy...haha)
Anyways, I'm flying down for my best friend, Kelsy's wedding!
I will be out-of-control vlogging so stay tuned for those videos!

Anyways, here's my love song playlist:

1.) D'ANGELO - How Does It Feel
I remember watching this on MTV when I was younger and getting in a lot of trouble for it.  I found his voice to be soothing and unique, and he was probably one of the first almost naked men I have ever laid my eyes on.  haha.

2.) MAXWELL - Pretty Wings
Easily one of the most beautiful songs ever composed.

3.) RHYE - Open
I love the sensuality of this song.  I first heard it last February and fell in love with the intimacy of it all. This is the new video that has been released...there is also a 2012 version up on YouTube.

4.) RYAN LESLIE - Valentine
One of my favorite artists creating one of my favorite songs.  Oh, the things I would give up to meet him one day.

5.) VERSE SIMMONDS - Boo Thang (feat. Kelly Rowland)
I remember downloading his mixtape a long time ago and immediately loving this song.  I think it's really cute!

Have a happy valentine's day week everybody!  Love you all!  xoxo *jenn
