BIRTHDAY TREATS & FRIENDS

ImageSo I come home after work and my friend is just sitting on my couch, eating noodles and watching anime like she owns the place.

Comfortable, much?

ImageI head upstairs and decide that I’m going to jump back into my workout routine. Getting back into the jist of things wasn’t as hard as I expected it to be. Actually, I enjoy working out but I wasn’t feeling all that well for the last few days.

I pulled out my ladybug yoga mat that I love so much and did some stretching. Then I watched my favorite workout videos on YouTube (I don’t know what dvd is worth buying so I stick to YouTube for now, lol) and started to pump it! XD

After the main workout I still had some energy left in me so I decided to look up some Zumba videos. Now I’m addicted!

I probably looked like this the whole time:

Not really. It was more like:

Boss status.

This is just disturbing.

Anyway, I did my thing and then I went downstairs to a nice surprise.

A friend of ours stopped by and brought belated birthday goodies!

Thanks @peepmykicks_!!

Can’t go wrong with that!

Then, another friend walks in and she plops this on the table:

How could you?

It’s safe to say, I didn’t eat any last night. Yeah, I’m proud.

BUT, that doesn’t mean tonight I won’t have a go.

Can’t wait to head home!

Oh, almost forgot. I got myself a nice little treat for my day of birth as well.

DAFT PUNK – RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES – FULL ALBUM

Man, 2013 has had it’s share of music hits but this. THIS?

Daft Punk’s latest album “Random Access Memories” is a beautifully composed nod to eras passed. I truly enjoy listening to it from beginning to end while never needing to skip a track in between; it is that good!

It is artistic, fun, and sensitive. If you haven’t listened to it yet or thought Daft Punk only had a specific style you’ll be in for a nice surprise.

My personal favorites are “Within”, “Instant Crush”, “Lose Yourself To Dance” (Sweat), and “Touch” although each and every track provides easy listening.

My #1 is “Touch” and #2 is “Instant Crush”. I just love the way “Touch” transitions from one style to another and another all in one track! The slowed down sections and the singer’s vocals remind me a lot of Paul McCartney for some reason. The album itself reminds me a bit of Radio Head and Pink Floyd; both amazing bands/groups.

Alright, enough rambling! Listen to it and tell me what you think in a comment! 🙂

Here is the track list below:

1 Give Life Back to Music 4:34
2 The Game of Love 5:21
3 Giorgio by Moroder 9:04
4 Within 3:48
5 Instant Crush 5:37
6 Lose Yourself to Dance 5:53
7 Touch 8:18
8 Get Lucky 6:07
9 Beyond 4:50
10 Motherboard 5:41
11 Fragments of Time 4:39
12 Doin’ It Right 4:11
13 Contact 6:21
14 Horizon 4:24

Bummer.

I love blogging and yet I hate it.

I wish I’d had interesting things to post daily or get more creative with my posts as well but I end up feeling like it just won’t be worth making a whole post about it.

What I mean is, I usually feel that the best posts from me come when I’m documenting something I did while out and about like previous posts you can find here.

Yet, it’s not enough. I need MORE! I just don’t know exactly what to fill this blog with in between my more preferred kind of posts. I’m willing to figure it out but sometimes, the online world is just soooo overwhelming. I look at blogs that I admire and think “Sheesh! Where do they find the time to come up with all of that?!”; I’m so impressed by a lot of them that I kind of lose motivation.

I can’t think like that though! I know I have more to show and share! From the littlest thing to the biggest. From the most random stuff to the most important.

I’ve got to open up more on here… even if I think no one is gonna care. It’s gotta get done… now!

Kanye West YEEZUS Tour, Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, NYC

Just going to share a few shots taken from the night I went to see Yeezy perform.

I wish I’d have had brought my high quality camera with me but it was the first time I’d ever been to Barclays Center and so I feared it’d get confiscated (A rumor I kept hearing about the security measures being taken). I opted instead to bring a regular digital camera.

Lo and behold….

Bonita Applebum, you gotta put me on!

Telisha Gibson & Perfectly Flawed Featured on Yahoo!

It’s such a pleasure to see that Telisha Gibson’s project “Perfectly Flawed” and it’s message about vitiligo is spreading like wildfire!

Image

So far, she has been featured on Refinery29 and Yahoo! Shine.

I am so honored to have met her last Saturday to participate in the documentary her company is putting together and couldn’t be more proud.

You go girl!

Perfectly Flawed Vitiligo Project

Hey gang!

I’ve been up since 8am today and if I’m up at that ungodly hour on a Saturday there had better be a damn good reason.

Well, today, there was such a reason. Today, I participated in a video shoot for a project called “Perfectly Flawed Project” that focuses on raising awareness about the skin condition vitiligo and also helping others embrace their uniqueness.

Image

I am so proud to be a part of this movement created by Telisha Gibson and I honestly hope I can get involved with more projects like these. The shoot was relaxed and comfortable. I walked in and was pleasantly surprised to see and meet two girls who I follow on instagram and also have vitiligo.

(Me taking paparazzi creeper pics)

Image

(then I asked for a photo like a normal person would)

It was a great experience to hear each person share their own stories on vitiligo from when they first noticed loss of pigmentation to how they coped and everything in between. Each person was strong and there was even a little 6yr old girl who was interviewed. She was such a cutie pie and also very brave to talk about how she felt when people teased her at school. Yet, when asked if she knew she was beautiful, she proudly responded with a “Yes”. :’)
