3 Philly Concerts, 3 Looks


Spotify's RapCaviar Live Concert Series with Live Nation Urban began in 2017 to bring rap fans closer to their favorite artists. With sold out shows nationwide, the series is back in 2018 with 13 shows across the U.S. including Philadelphia. The tour which started in LA in March, will land in Philly May 19 at Festival Pier headlining Migos, PnB Rock and Trippie Redd. Tickets are available now through Ticketmaster.com.


What to wear: I'm thinking urban boss babe. Yellow is a big color this season and it'll make you pop in the crowd. You'll want to be comfortable, so throw on some cool kicks. Feel free to get ya hands up with a crossbody like this one from Michael Kors. A sporty crop top and biker shorts will keep you cool (literally) and have heads turning. Pull the complete look together with some bright sunnies and a poppin' side fauxhawk.

Happy Earth Day 2018!

Happy Earth Day!!! Here are a few products that are good for you and the planet! 


A favorite of actress Emma Watson; Essentials brand Boody has a range of products are made from viscose derived from bamboo, which are one of the fastest growing plants on earth and requires less water than traditional cotton. The bamboo is blended with a touch of nylon and elastane and the result is a fabric that is extremely soft, stretchy, and wrinkle-free. Boody is thermoregulating, breathable and eco-friendly; the perfect fit for both the consumer and the planet.

The collection consists of perfect base layers for both men and women, including super soft tees, body socks, shaper bras and socks. The brand also has a line of baby products for newborns to 12 months. The core collection is all under $50. Boody also recently launched activewear which will make workouts more comfortable as well, retailing under $66.   

Boody is available at www.boodywear.com and local retailers nationwide.

Vivienne Westwood x Melissa

There's a brand new collaboration with this Spring/Summer with Melissa and designer, Vivienne Westwood collection! The collection includes the new sporty beach slider. This updated classic is perfect for warmer days ahead and very on trend with the ever-growing popularity of the slide. Melissa is always vegan, waterproof, and made of recyclable PVC making the brand ethically friendly! My favorite would have to be the green slides. (Heads up! Score the Black and White slides above for half the price on Zappos Luxury!)

It's Stress Awareness Month


April is Stress Awareness Month! Although we need to be aware of our stress all the time, this month is a good time to think about different ways to unwind and relieve some stress. One easy stress reliever everyone could try out is simply lighting a candle. Lighting your favorite candles can instantly change your mood like these candles from Molton Brown. These luxurious candles contain such notes as ginger, coconut and mandarin. There's also an awesome trio set of Boy Smells candles that include their very first scents.

April Hair Care Round-Up

New hair products come out daily, so enjoy this monthly roundup of hair products I loved and some you might want to try in this month's Hair Care Round-Up.

Who doesn't love Avocados? They're full of vitamins and nutrients our bodies love. They're also good for your hair. NaturAll Club offers a Fresh (and we mean fresh) Avocado Deep Container Solution Box. NaturAll broke down the science of hair care by including only the best ingredients to bring your hair to life. With avocados, shea butter, coconut oil and tea tree oil it penetrates deep into the hair shaft to moisturize and feed your hair. What impressed me most about this product, is that it's so fresh, you have to refrigerate (or freeze) it. My hair responsed very well to the avocados, giving it the moisture it needed without leaving it feeling weighed down later.

What's in my Gym Bag?



If you read my March recap, you know that one thing I've started recently is going to the gym at least twice a week. With that being said I thought it would be appropriate to share what I like to carry in my gym bag. The bag I usually carry is a red vegan leather book bag. I love it because it shows off my style, it's big enough to carry most of the things I want to bring and it has several pockets inside.

CIFIKA at Ortlieb's Lounge 4/5

CIFIKA

Rising Korean phenomenon CIFIKA will be playing at Ortlieb’s Lounge on April 5 at 8PM. Her EP “Prism”, out March 8 on Third Culture Kids has been getting high reviews from industry leaders.

“CIFIKA has crafted a collection more magnetic than any earlier work — from the pounding insistence of the opener, “Prosper,” to the subtle glitches and sharp, biting pleas of “Good Luck From Her,” into the club remix-ready pop of “Pieta” and “Water.”

“CIFIKA is game-changing the way you look at Korea’s musical landscape. Her brand new PRISM EP grabs the rapt attention of the listener and draws them into the colorful, futuristic world that CIFIKA has distinctly created on her own.”

“Alluring-yet-mysterious pop siren”

She’s a DIY, self-taught/producer/mixer/singer/songwriter rising steadily from Seoul’s underground electronic scene and has only been creating music for the past 2 years, which I find hard to believe. 

Listen to the EP here: http://bit.ly/2GLuRLR

Both familiar and indefinable, she deftly blends R&B, low-fi, dark electronic soundscapes with bouncy house and playful pop, along with her signature vocals in both English and Korean. Her voice is majestic, layered and textured with her electronic productions. Tickets are Free with RSVP so make sure you reserve your spot quick!

Hello April


Hello and welcome to April! It's been a while, almost a month, since my last blog post and I must admit, I really missed blogging! Is it just me or did time just seemed to fly by in March. If anything, I was only active on social media like Instagram, SnapChat and sometimes Twitter, so make sure you follow me there so you don't miss a thing!
