Welcome Back!

21 Oct

That is more of a welcome back from you to me because I have been M.I.A with my writing. I have been so caught up with work, relationships, travel and the million and one other things I like to pretend I am involved in. Even though I like to make myself a busy bee, the online radio show I will soon be a permanent fixture on is in the works. I am so excited to be given the opportunity to work with my Detroit brotha from another motha Guy Anthony. You can check it out on November 1st at 12am at http://www.GASupradio.com or you can follow the show on twitter @GASuponline

Dream Cadence

18 Jun

A keep a quiet tongue about this because it seems like everyone in Atlanta is a “stylist” but I styled my first photo shoot here a few months ago. Two friends of mine have a company called DREAM CADENCE  so I was asked to pull some looks together for the shoot. I decided to go for a retro vibe using gingham in both looks for consistency. I used clothes and accessories from my own closet along with a friends. I also used new and vintage pieces. I love how the pictures turned out.These are a few of the proofs but they still look amazing thanks to the photographer Chris Marley

Lyric Love

25 May

This past friday I had the pleasure of seeing The Foreign Exchange live at Masquerade here in Atlanta, GA. They have been a favorite of mine for a while so seeing them live was a treat. One of my favorite songs by them is “Take Off Your Blues.” Read on…
Lyrics to Take Off The Blues :

By The Foreign Exchange
(feat. Darien Brockington)

[Phonte:]
(Mmmmmmm, haaah-hahh-hahhh…)
You might, you might, you might, you might as well…
(Mmmmmmm, haaah-hahh-hahhh, haaah-haah…)

After all is said and done you’re next to me
And when the sun goes down, you’re feeling things you’ve never felt before
Nothing left to say to ease your fears
But I know just what to do
Let me take good care of yooo-oohhh-ooou

[Chorus:]
Kick off your shoes
Take off the blues and come to me
So much to do, so much is new for you to see
You might as well-lll, come a little closer
Girl, don’t make me wait too long for you

After all is said and done (said and done)
And there’s nothing left to share (left to share)
It’s the morning after, I watch you laying there (just wanna watch you lying there)
Always told that you should not give in to love (LOVE)
But saying no is so hard to do (so harrrd…)
‘Cause when the feeling’s right, you might as well, yeah

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Just, want your attention
Ex-cuse my intentions
Keep your feelings intact – Don’t wanna hurt nobody, let me say it again
There’s, no need to mention
For, this I’ve been wishing
There’s no turning back
Lady, please take my hand

Let’s dance…

[Stan Graham plays a trumpet solo]

[Chorus x2]

Double Take

23 May

Clara’s Christian Louboutins will set you back a cool $1,725 but if spending a months salary on a beautiful pair of shoes is not what your after, Steve Madden offers a double take with a similar wedge for a $89.95. Steal!
