The Wednesday Link Up // Vol. 9

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Welcome to the Wednesday Link Up
It's been too long...

This past weekend, I was out and about with family and hosting sleepovers with my siblings. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the Cat Cafe Pop-up Shop. If like me you were caught up, lazy or just downright uninformed, never fear! You can always sneak a peek at what it was like below, without having to wait on that long line!
(Heard about it on Gothamist.)


The NYC housing market is a MESS! UHaul trucks make a weekly appearance around these parts (mostly people moving out) - "The Rent is Too Damn High!" (truer words were never spoken...) With the price of even closet sized apartments starting at $1,000, this Tiny House Project is looking better and better by the minute!


Now that we're done with the amazing and practical let's move on to the ridiculous and indulgent...

MUSIC MONDAY: Gary Clark Jr. & Alice Smith

Monday, April 28, 2014

GARY CLARK JR. IS COMING OUT WITH A MIXTAPE?!?!
Yes, yes he is - Happy Music Monday!


Earlier today on Soulbounce, I came across an article that sang praises about the GCJ and Alice Smith collaboration on the mixtape version of "Please Come Home." As if that duo pairing isn't good news enough, I find out it's dropping THIS Wednesday (4/30) D. Nice Presents Blak and Blu: The Mixtape !

Big K.R.I.T. is also featured on the mixtape (He and GCJ were both featured on Talib's "Demonology" track); I'm excited to see what other artists lent their vocals. 

Check out the singles below! 

MUSIC MONDAY: "Dive Deep" into Tiaan's Debut Single!

Monday, April 21, 2014

"...TIAAN takes the adventurous spirit of Timbaland-era Aaliyah, the classy soul of Sade, and the futuristic feel of Jessie Ware, and blends them into a beguiling hybrid of seductive pop."
(via Facebook)

Timbaland-era Aaliyah? No kidding!

I know nothing about this talented Australian beauty but I'm already on board and ready for her next single!

I've made it an almost daily habit to rummage around the "New Releases" section on Spotify and look for the most intriguing cover, when and if I can't find any familiar names. I'm so happy I clicked on this!

It's going to be 60 all week ~ so have fun with this one kids!



Happy Monday

MUSIC MONDAY: Seinabo Sey // "Younger"

Monday, April 14, 2014

Today's Music Monday should be renamed to Motivational Music Monday

I know I've been flaky this month with posting, but I promise I'll have some pretty pictures of my day at the Cherry Blossom Festival down in DC this past weekend, up by the end of this week!

Today on AfroPunk.com I came across this amazing track. Everything about this track was a welcome breath of fresh air after a four hour ride from DC, a nine hour work shift and three and a half hours of sleep ~ phew!

It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: 
"The trouble is you think you have time" - Buddha

Hope this hits you the way it did me :} Enjoy


Happy Monday!

Happy National Beer Day!

Monday, April 7, 2014


Beer. It's my drink of choice.
I'm a sucker for a good pale ale or wheat beer - yum

Most people hate on it. They say "That's for frat parties and inexperienced high school drinkers." 
And I can totally understand where they're coming from - if Keystone Light and Steel Reserve were the only beers I had known, I'd reach for a rum and coke, everytime! BUT, if you really give it a chance and explore the endless varieties of beers that exist, I'm certain you'll find at least one you'll love! 

Just yesterday I had a "Sunday Sesh" with the boyfriend at the Brooklyn Brewery! At 5 beers for $20, you're already getting a bargain, but then the guys sitting at our table gifted us their last two beer tokens!! Free beer? Lucky!~ Our Dos Toros burritos paired perfectly! That's one of the things I really enjoy about the brewery - it's BYOF! 

If you're heading down to the Brewery anytime soon I strongly recommend  Weisse (Belguim Style Wheat 5%) and Hammarby Syndrome (Strong Ale 8%).

Here's a special little hook up for all you fellow beer lovers out there: 

30+ "free beer" coupons to bars all over the big BK!

Oh and if you're curious to make your own fermented joy at home, check out these
 starter brewing kits on MrBeer.com - they've got everything from seasonal beer to root beer to hard cider! 

Cheers!



Happy Monday!
