Thirsty Thursday Miuzak-We are on the move by Zo! feat. Eric Roberson & Phonte- Hello sweeties! I’m having a *little* time on my hands before heading to rehearsal for an upcoming DJ gig I have this weekend (#blessed) to share with you this week’s ‘zak
And today’s TTM titled couldn’t be more appropriate. Mama Rose is on the move, hunny. All day, every day.
Now, I’m no ‘disco’-infused anything usually but I have to admit I do love the energy of this song! The Whispers’ Keep On Lovin’ Me rendition (after I googled & youtubed it!) is pretty much right on the money. A joyful choreo, soulful lyrics, and a groovy, retro melody. All the elements of a happy, feel good track.

So get in the living room (or the park if you are the daring type!) and get ready to get down & boogie!
Thirsty Thursday Miuzak-I am SOUL Roy Davis Mix feat. Jill Scott- Hey Rosedolls! How are you all doing?! My schedule is so hectic in the most amazing way. My days are getting busier and busier with fashion event attendances & dj gigs! In fact, as you are reading this, I’m hitting the decks at designer’s Helmer boutique for a pre-party surrounding Black Expo Design. (Thanks Tumblr for the post pre-scheduling option: good call!)
Now, this track jazzes up my day every time I press play. At first was a little thrown off by the Alvin & the Chipmunks-altered pitch but then my head started moving, then my feet. And before I knew it, I was breaking out in full swing moves! Must be its 20s Harlem speakeasy, Great Gastsby-era feel that makes you wanna get up and Jive!
The original track is titled I am music, off of rapper Common’s Electric Circus (2002)
This jazzy house rendition is a major toe tapper. Have a listen, put your hair in finger waves, put on your dark plum lipstick, grab your sweetie and get down!
Fashion Event: The Black Expo Design..Exposed!- For a third consecutive year AMA Design presents Black Expo Design, an initiative surrounding Black History Month held at luxurious Loft Hotel from February 28th till March 2nd.
The design, art and culture-oriented organization’s mission: to highlight both seasoned and emerging fashion designers from the world over. This edition promises to dazzle the public talent wise with awe-inspiring fashion shows and art exhibits from African & afro-Caribbean artisans hailing from France, Africa (Ivory Coast & Angola, notably), the United States, Haiti along with, of course, our local creator gems.
In addition to showing exciting works by world-renowned couturiers, BED is always innovating, thus expanding its platform for new artists who represent the vanguard of the art in movement.
Keeping the success of previous years in mind, Expo Design renews the formula of two shows followed by cocktail sessions (yayerrr!) on Friday, February 28th and Saturday, March 1st starting at 6:00 pm, and on Sunday, March 2nd as of noon, an exclusive designer sale, workshops and conferences will be on the menu.
Every Thursdays throughout the month of February, a new concept was added to the mix: the
“Balladesign”: wine & cheese in a happy hour format where all fashion enthusiasts and industry insiders were invited to discover some of the the city’s afro-Caribbean entrepreneurs and designers’s universe at their house, ie atelier. Tomorrow, the fashion crowd will gather at Helmer's boutique where I will be working the wheels of steel, providing some good haws miuzak towards the end of the evening.
A fashion and design DJ-entertained (points to me!) rendezvous where networking, styling tips and draw prizes are on the menu. Tickets for the BED will be available on site for purchase as well.
I also have the immense pleasure to announce that I am the official blogger for this three-day fashion extravaganza. To say that I am ecstatic is an understatement. I’m thrilled to cover the event. I’m looking forward to taking you with me on my backstage adventures, where I will be joyfully chatting with the creators behind the brands and merrily sharing with you all my discoveries as I will be scoping out the fashion finds & objects of covet. Don’t be a stranger if you see me; come say hi ;)
Can’t make it in person? Make sure to stay on the 'gram &tweet loop with my social media posts (hashtag #blackexpodesign)
Black Expo Design from February 28th till March 2nd at Loft Hotel 314, rue Sherbrooke Est. Hope to see you there!
Thirsty Thursday Miuzak-Jerk Ribs by Kelis - Ms. Kelis is baaaaack! I’ve always been a huge fan of hers, both miuzak and style-wise. She brilliantly encapsulates my two passions. I remember the first time I saw 'Caught out there', I immediately connected to her. She’s a trendsetter and certainly not a follower.
Ribs is the lead single off of her upcoming album (April 22), aptly titled 'Food' (she is a Cordon Bleu chef & a future Cooking Channel host btw), and I cannot get it off repeat! It it has a sexy, funky retro vibe that is absolutely delectable.
In a fashion and beautiful Mexico scenery-filled video she gets all dolled up, giving fans a behind-the-scene glimpse into the process of her album packaging photo shoot.
“This song is the cornerstone of my album,” Kelis told TIME. “So I wanted the video to look like my life, my love — back to the beginning.” Going back to basics, I love it!
I am totally smitten and I am sure you will too once it hits your eardrums.
Her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard. Her ribs won’t let them go anywhere.
Because I couldn’t decide on which one of these fab #mfw #aw14 looks from #Fay @fay_brand I ❤ the most ^_^ #milan #milanfashionweek #milano #fay #faygirl #inaclipstichotfherown😌 #faveoftheWeek❓❗#luxe #caban #varsity #fur #fresh #innoparticularorder #obvi😛🙈
Photodiary: Happy Burfday to my blog! Can you believe it?? I’m celebrating my 3 year blog anniversary today! This is insaaaane!
Yet another year has flown by before my eyes–really, where did the time go?!?
While I reminisce on how & why I started it (boy, was I nervous when I first pressed that ‘publish’ tab!!), I also retrospect and reflect on mistakes that I had made and more importantly, how I learned from them.
As I took a trip down memory lane and check out some of my very first posts (gooosh!), the word growth keeps popping up. I have sure done a lot of it, though it is constantly a work in progress.
So much happened in this past year…beauty collabs & contests, tons of amazing events and even one I was named ambassador for (more on that later :P)! I’m setting my sights high for this third year.
And with such an important milestone come new goals/resolutions and I definitely want to step it up in propelling the blog to new fashion highs!
I vow to myself (and to you) to share more moments of my life with you Rosedolls (I know, I haven’t come correct in the closet confessions/outfit posts; you’ve made that quite clear!), continue to push myself outside of my comfort zone, try different things sartorially and be more bold & daring. Just strive to be the best blogger/reporter I can be.
And today wouldn’t have been half as special without you RIACW readers. Thanks so much for taking this journey with me. Not only has this blog provided me an outlet to be creative and to express myself, it has also given me the freedom to be sartorially open.
You make blogging one of my truest joys (along with DJ’ing :P). Your thoughtful comments, ‘asks’, likes/reblogs (s/o to the tumblr community!) & e-mails inspire and motivate me. I love you all sweetly. I plan on continuing the fabulosity here. I hope you’ll join me for the ride:)
From the bottom of my heart, thank you! MWWWUUUAAAH!
