The Balconies

“The three split songwriting and vocal duty, each bringing to the table diverse and eclectic styles, influences, and impressive vocal range…The result is a blossoming blend of classic and garage rock, catchy pop hooks, and bass lines which twist and groove through an unquantifiable list of influences and genres.” – Bridging the Atlantic Blog

“The Balconies are a power popping trio with a nice pedigree, tons of energy and the songwriting chops to make their self-titled, self released debut one to

Jacquie Neville, Liam Jaeger, and Steve Neville are The Balconies; a trio made up of a brother, sister and boyfriend (sounds like fun!). They’re Ottawa’s pride and joy, and they’ve been turning heads with exciting live performances all over the country; sharing the stages with notable acts like Mother Mother, Young Rival, Sister Suvi and the Bicycles to name a few…They’re all experienced songwriters and performers, so it’s understandable that they are quickly becoming one of Canada’s most promising new indie bands!
Formed in only December 2007, The Balconies have built a reputation for their high-energy-rock-out shows in a very short amount of time. They recently released their debut album this past September and they’ll be capping off the year with two holiday shows in both their hometowns (Toronto + Ottawa; including a performance at this years AudioBlood and Third Estate’s Jingle Bell Rock Event. An event featuring artists such as CMTM, Make Your Exit, and Oh No Forest Fires, omg I gotta be there! Love them all!

They have a couple shows coming up, so make sure you go check them out!

Obama’s favorite word…

The Obama White House is addicted to the “unprecedented.”


Obama has relied on “unprecedented” in more than 90 instances, using the word at least 129 times in everything from major addresses to small speeches, statements, memorandums and proclamations. (Bush, by contrast, used the word 262 times over eight years.)

say it right.

Bacon+Hot Girls=???

Don’t ask me HOW I found these *chuckles*… seeing as I gave the ladies John Mayer to drool over, I figured why not do something for the guys, seeing as Hump Day is for everybody!
The “Meat Bikini”; a fun/sexy idea for the next time you have a boys night in to watch the game/fight or whatever it is that men watch on tv, lol. Did I just get myself into trouble with all the girlfriends?? Relax ladies, I’m sure there’s a Bacon mankini in the works! If not, D.I.Y! orrrrrrr make your own meat bikini for him….*wink wink*

“I’m in the place of greatest freedom right now—not giving a fuck…” – John Mayer 
I couldn’t have said it better! lol

He’s talented, thinks our bodies are wonderlands, has the RIGHT to get stoned, he’s HOT, and he doesn’t give a fuck! lol
I’ve always liked John Mayer, but I have to admit that I’m not exactly a die hard fan. lol.
But seeing as it’s Hump Day, and I think he looks extra super delicious and sexy in this shoot for his feature in Details magazine (great article btw!), I figured, why not!?
Boy looks mmm mmm GOOD! YOUR body is a wonderland.
Happy Hump Day!

RAW minerals

I have blogged and tried a few mineral makeup brands in the past and most recently, I received a trial from the good people over at RAWminerals via @ibinc.  So excited 🙂 

The kit comes with everything you need to create a perfectly ‘natural’ look and I was surprised at the level of coverage! I was a little bit skeptical at first and thought, oh I have to use my favorite concealer at least right? BUT I watched the DVD (looks like a shopping channel demo) and decided to give it a shot. Did you know that mineral makeup has natural SPF. Yay! I didn’t want to post this ‘no-makeup’ before pic of me… >_< but i just have to to show you what a dramatic difference it makes! All in the name of authenticity. *sigh*. I love the sunkissed glow it gives me.  I used the Active mineral foundation in Medium 1, Mineral Glow, Active Veil SPF 18 + Smashbox lipgloss.
