Holiday look brought to you by Fenty Beauty and FlexiRods !

     This Thanksgiving I spent the day with family as usual and got all dressed up to stay in the house, as most people do. This outfit was simply a long ribbed sleeveless Forever 21 dress, lately, grey dresses have been a part of my personal aesthetic. The look is mostly complete due to my hair and face. I debuted Fenty Beauty's liquid foundation and added some style to my hair with flexi-rods I wore all day yesterday.




Here's how created the hair and make-up look:

Immerse Art Exhibit

     Last night I performed at an event the Immerse Art Exhibit. An exhibition of various forms of art presented by a collective called 3:5 Creatives(3:5 Immerse). The event was a beautiful night of live art, visual art, and good vibes. The Okay Space Gallery(OkayPlayer) was booming with music, lights, and even a smoke machine creating a dream-like ambiance of expression as soon as you walk in. The walls were covered in breath-taking paintings- all by Black artists including Ike Slimster and Alim Smith. Patrons trickled in slowing filling the space as they were met with impromptu performances from a variety of artists. In between performances DJ Boston Chery was spinning the latest and greatest, her craft an explosive art form as well, as much a part of the exhibit as all of the other performances. And the other performances including dance, spoken word, and live music from singers, rappers, and a full band.



     The idea of the "Immerse Art Exhibit" is just that, an exhibition that immerses audience members completely in ART. There is no stage, there is no MC, no start time and I am sure attendees were left wishing there was no end. There is just art surrounding you. As you are admiring the creations on the walls and the DJ is spinning the hottest records next thing you know a dance performance begins, accompanied with its own music and visuals being projected onto the wall behind the dancers. An artist preparing to perform usually grabs the attention of some, but even when they begin there is still chatting and selfie-taking occurring while the art is happening around you and in your space. This approach seemed to take the spectatorship out of live art and performance and gave audience members full pure experience.



  My outfit was a simple two-piece look, a matching long sleeved ribbed mock-neck top, and ribbed midi skirt from GoJane. Here's a look at my performance:

MEDUSA

My Halloween costume this year is none other than Medusa. With curly locs accompanied by snakes and a long Grecian style gown from Urban Outfitters, I think I served the mythical goddess justice. I also did snake-skin inspired makeup to complete the look. This encompasses what I love to do every year with my Halloween costume, a homemade/DIY look! A cute outfit with some accessories and makeup for an even cuter costume. I never purchase a full costume.





Here's how I completed the look:

Happy Birthday to ME

    Today is my 25th and in celebration, I did a birthday photoshoot over the weekend. My younger sister(@yea.cuzicare) did the shoot and I edited the photos. This look is accidentally classic. I didn't realize how tightly curled my hair would be or how vintage the dress would look but it all came together beautifully. The spaghetti strap velvet dress is from Forever 21 and the suede heels with feather detail are from GoJane.com, paired together for a cute and affordable outfit. The concept for the shoot is a combination of classy and some of my favorite things. I am a fall baby so the backdrop of Highland Park was perfect. My props are a handful of cameras belonging to me and my family, exemplifying my passion for film and photography.

This little grey dress is one of my favorite H&M finds. Also, it has pockets! For this breezy 70 degree weather day, I paired this dress with fleece lined stockings from UO and leather heeled boots with buckle detail from H&M, as it may rain tonight. This is a simple fall outfit considering the warmth we have been experiencing.

New Music From Ella Rene!

The emerging Brooklyn songstress released her latest project "Cycle" on October 20th. Ella René’s "Cycle" is just that. We are taken on a journey that can easily be experienced over and over again and trust me you would want to. Of course, she's giving Sza, she gives Sia, very contemporary, very what’s hot in the streets right now. But there’s no need for comparisons here Ella presents her own sound and style off the bat. You fall in love with her along with the music and her mellifluous, sultry voice. Listeners ride the waves of her melodies as long as the ups and downs of what seems to be a juicy situationship that seems to have run its course. “Cycle” puts love in a Petri dish and allows listeners to examine the feat of romance. My favorite so far is “Dangerous” on which she claims “I don’t wanna do this anymore, loving you was Dangerous”. An ultimate declaration of “nigga, you need to go”. I’m sure many of us have been there. The feels like a precautious dismissal, not necessarily a breakup but certainly a goodbye after a meaningful epiphany.

“Things happened so fast,
 we forgot to hit the breaks”. 

Each track flows along the same narrative seamlessly. "Cycle" in its entirety feels like a short film, though one-sided. I’m not even sure if I want to hear the other side of this story. This tape left me full and quite satisfied. "Cycle" is sexy, beautiful, and fun. Now available for streaming on Apple Music and Tidal.

Azealia Banks' new film is FINALLY here

     Well not as of yet, "Love Beats Rhymes" formerly known as "Coco" is set to be released In select theaters December 1st. Having been filmed here in New York City during the summer of 2015, the status of this film's release has been unclear since its original set date March of last year(2016) up until now. I remember hearing rumors of this film's production during the spring of 2015 when it seemed the RZA was scoping out talent, and ultimately production during the summertime; I am very excited this film will finally be available to the public. Speculation of the film being shelved altogether certainly crossed anxious minds as Banks faced a lot of controversy through numerous "Twitter beefs".



     "Love Beats Rhymes" follows a young Femmecee on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to do something more profound and significant with her music. She goes back to school, makes new friends, and is introduced to the world of Spoken Word/Slam Poetry. Through poetry, she learns how to be more expressive and ultimately how to be a better MC. Jill Scott plays the poetry professor at school, College of Staten Island, Common plays the host at the poetry spot, Nuyorican Poets Café, and Lucien Laviscount is the love interest who exposes Coco to the Poetry Slam scene. This film looks to be much like titles such as "You Got Served", "Stomp The Yard", and "How She Move"; except this time it is about Hip-Hop and poetry, and will hopefully be much better than "How She Move". It also highlights the notion that Rap is Poetry, and Poetry is a big part of Hip-Hop culture; overall dope.
