SoFarSounds

I recently met a verrry cool person and she put me on to SoFarSounds. She told me she signed up for tickets to a secret music show in a secret garden in NYC. It Sounded Dope to me ..so I told her I was down.

She ended up getting two tickets and I'm very glad she did..

It was a gorgeous summer day in July and we got cool seats sitting on a wooden tree bench in a garden of a Church. The show was BYOB and we came prepared with two bottles of Ros'e. Lush Life.

There was three performers and they were all amazing.

Silvina Moreno from Argentina who sang in both Spanish and English and had a funky lil instrument that she played.

Adam  Ahuja was the second performer who played the keyboard and crooned so beautifully that he ended up on my IG story with heart eyes emoji's. How old am I again ?! Move over Justin Timberlake…He used audience participation to create a song that day which I thought was pretty Ahhmazing.

The last performer was Madison Mcferrin who sang very soulfully and had the whole audience nodding and swaying to her vibe.

After leaving this mini concert I wanted to buy all of their CD's and follow them all on Spotify.

Wanna check this out and try to get lucky and get tickets to these secret concerts check out SofarSound. They are all over the city and Brooklyn. FYI They do not tell you the exact location or details unless you get tickets to attend.

 

Made in the 80’s

With my birthday being a week away I am doing a big shout out to the eighties…I am having an 80’s bash and my research brought back a lot of good memories and it had me feeling nostalgic… So, I figured I would blog about it

The Music:

New Kids on the Block (I was kinda obsessed, hmmm no.  I was obsessed!). I knew every word to their songs! Posters on my wall.. I had their dolls.. the whole nine yards. My fav was Jordan without a doubt. They were awesome.. c’mon they even had their own cartoon! I also was a big fan of New Edition and Genesis.

The Hair:

Hair Crimper: The hair crimper was my best friend well into the nineties!! I totally fried my hair with it. I always wanted curls and waves, I even begged my mom to perm my hair (not a good idea).

Also you could not go wrong with a ponytail high up to the side and a scrunci!

Trends:

Neon: Everything was neon from my nose at the pool (Remember Zinka?!)  to my L.A Gears. Am I the only one who thinks Zinka should make a come back?! I always thought wearing that stuff was a super cute way to wear sunblock! Fanny packs and slap bracelets were also a must!

The Movies:

Garbage Pail Kids: I was obsessed with this movie even though it did scare me and gross me out! (I was a weird kid)I also collected their trading cards! There was Gremlins! I always wanted Gizmo as a pet!  And, who can forget all those fabulous Molly Ringwald  movies! (Pretty in pink, Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles)
