I’m in a good space. If I had the ability… You know I would be pulling these moves from the 1995 VMAs.
The KING!! (via artofkawaii click on it to go there)
When I was younger, growing up in Soweto, this song used to come on every day in the week leading up to Christmas. It makes me happy and sad.
SABC has moved on and they don’t play it anymore. Thank goodness for internet This was the only decent-ish video I could find. And you can sing along if you want ha ha.
I like this song. A LOT! He had me with ‘Get Lifted’. John can do no wrong in my eyes/ears. Enjoy the Saturday Jam.
I know this is weird, but I can’t help thinking how trusting he must be to let the woman in the video touch his face (and lips). Yeah, its weird. But I have a thing about people touching my face. Eeeuw. I don’t know where your hands have been. Ha ha ha. I’m gonna stop.
A few weeks ago while I was filling up (my car) I saw a man with a beard. He was so HOT I immediately tweeted that I would kiss him AND his beard. I can’t say that I was a beard girl before… But I think I am becoming one. Thanks to the tumblr Bearded and Black I can (safely) look at some hotties with beards. This is a safe space, so no judgement!
I visited the blog today and saw the most talented and good looking Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def)
This made me find one my MOST favourite-est songs by this dude, check out the video below.
BOP TV used to play music videos late at night and I used to stay up on a Friday or Saturday night to see this one.
Shout out to my musically-diverse little brother for putting me on. Electric Wire Hustle are from New Zealand and I am IN LOVE. Tom Boy is my favourite song by far. Working with these cats is on the bucket list. If you know them… Hook a girl up. Let’s do this
Let this kick start your weekend.
I’ve always wanted red lipstick and I have been struggling to get the perfect shade of red. Today while Marcee was getting some lip balm from Mac, I started looking for the ‘perfect red’. Sadly I didn’t find one, but I did find lip liner that I could use as an alternative. Its bold and it doesn’t clash with my skin tone. Her are pics of Marcee (my best friend and manager lady) posing at home.
SO happy with the Perfect Red. Watch out folks, I will be pouting all day tomorrow
To call myself a fan of Billie Holiday, would not be enough. I’m a lover of both Billie and her music. I remember when I heard her for the first time, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the ‘raw’. I didn’t know whether I was supposed to observe it (from a distance) or question if it had been there forever.
I could listen to Billie all day, wake up the next day and do it again. I love what she says at the beginning of the video about never singing a song the same. The music is such a big part of her that she cannot separate herself from it. God Bless Miss Holiday.
