British Soul…

Laura Mvula As I was perusing Instagram, I noticed that one of my Instafriends, LoveMrs, posted a photo of her post work out song by a British singer named Laura Mvula.  I was immediately intrigued, mostly because of the photograph and her hair. After a little research I found out that this young lady has been around for a little while, and was also nominated for two Brit Awards, where have I been??  Ms. Mvula, a native of Birmingham, England, trained at the city’s Conservatoire, which provides professional musician training, for orchestral, jazz and opera performers. Off to iTunes I went, where her album, “Singing To The Moon” was available for $7.99.  Her album is very eclectic, with a mix of  pop, jazz and creative soul.  I’m loving the video for Green Garden.  Her voice reminds me a little of the lovely Amy Winehouse, who passed away much too soon.  You also hear touches of Nina Simone on “Is There Anybody Out There?”   Listen to her voice on Make Me LovelyThis song took my breath away, with it’s sweeping strings and horns… Beautiful!  I hear a little bit of Bjork there.  I’m also loving Like The Morning DewGreen Garden, and Diamonds, actually the whole album!!!. This really is an incredible album. Visit Ms. Mvula’s website for more beautiful photos, news and music, click here Sing To The Moon is available at iTunes and Amazon. You can also listen to the whole album here Thank you Instagram for always inspiring me.

Love, Light & Blessings…

Just Be Happy…

It’s been a hectic and extremely demanding last couple of weeks {my blog post about the Pink concert two weeks ago is still in draft!}.  I hope you had a beautiful and blessed Thanksgiving day, and since you’re probably completely stuffed from all that food, you’re now detoxing until Christmas, where we’ll do it all over again!

I was talking to a girl friend of mine, and she introduced me to the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, which is from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. My friend has been listening to this song to start and end her day and swears it keeps her in a good mood.  I have to say when I first heard it, I repeated it about 4 or 5 times, there is just something so catchy and “happy” about it, it makes you want to dance around the house like I did when I heard it.  Plus it doesn’t hurt, that I think Pharrell’s quite handsome to boot!

So if you’re feeling a little low, here’s Pharrell’s Happy to perk you up!

Be Happy, Be Passionate, Be Creative, Just Be!

Hula Hooping Glamazon… {Repost}

Click image to see Grace Jones perform Slave To The Rhythm ~ Hula Hoop and all at Buckingham Palace!

 It’s been an extremely busy week, so from the  archives, here’s a repost of an article I wrote back in June.  Ms. Grace Jones hula hooping at Buckingham Palace, in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee.  Click on the image to enjoy the video.

This is who I want to be when I grow up to be 64 years old!!  My sister called me from London and alerted me to Grace Jones‘ Slave To the Rhythm performance at Buckingham Place for Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee… Wow!!  There is no one more fabulous than Ms. Jones.  Grace appears on stage with a hula hoop by her side, then proceeds to hula hoop through the entire song! She Hula Hoops!!!! Check out Grace’s legs!!!

Grace makes me proud to be a British Born Jamaican!! As my sister says “She is a bad gyal” (in Jamaican dialect).  At 64 Grace is still the rocking Glamazon she’s always been.

Big up Ms. Jones! Yes we love the rhythm!

Enjoy the video!

Solange’s New Musique…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on September 7, 2012 at 6:50 am

I’m loving this still photo from Solange’s latest music video for her upcoming single “Losing You“, which was shot in a township in South Africa.  Local young men dressed in some rather dapper fashions are one of the highlights of the video.

Solange was inspired to shoot her video in South Africa because of the color in the architecture, the townships and the people.  The new single has been described as “eclectic with ’80s references and African percussion influences.

I’ve always preferred Solange, I relate more to her sense of style, and I feel she’s someone I could really hang out with to shoot the breeze and talk about real style!

I’m looking forward to seeing the concept, the styling, and hearing the music from Solange’s new project.

I love this photo of Solange and her son in the colours splashed bedroom of her Brooklyn apartment, featured in the September issue of Elle Magazine

 

Have yourselves a Relaxing, Amazing and Extraordinary weekend!
