Acoustic Conversation with Joe

Last night I went to Acoustic Conversation, a live perfomance series presented by online R&B lifestyle magazine,, staring R&B artist, Joe!

This intimate, live concert was staged in BoConcept in NYC.  Strange backdrop, I’ll say–but it worked!  Drinks were sponsored by Martini and Rossi.

Joe started off singing some of his hit singles.  The entire crowd was singing along!



Then, my favor part was the acoustic set.

Check out the video

Lastly there was a brief Q&A session with the audience.

There was also a live painter, James Shields.  Here is the finished product.  For more information on his work

Seriously, wow…this is the definition of #1 fan!!!

Overall, great event.  Singersroom did a great job of bringing us Joe–live, up-close and personal!  For more information on Singersroom, visit their website:

Event LOVE: 7FAM


Last night, myself and what seemed like a million other people; attended the launch of Toronto’s first 7 For All Mankind flagship store at Yorkdale mall. The event was hosted by Canadian-Somali supermodel Yasmin Warsame, with a portion of the evening’s proceeds, and full proceeds from the silent auction being donated to The African Future. I wish I could’ve taken more pictures, but there was barely any room to breathe… Either way it was lovely seeing many familiar faces, and all the people that came out to support the event.

Septembre looking cute as usual!

Chenessa is always glowing… I need your secret asap!



I loved this!

a very serious man.

some food.

 The lovely Tamika!

 the swag.

Thank you to 7 For All Mankind and Lotus Leaf for inviting us.

peace and love



Showcase your creativity and personality with a Moleskine Notebook.

Everyone is getting settled into the first week of classes or is about to start! Did everyone get his or her notebooks? Because MOLESKINE has awesome ones. They also have journals, diaries, bags, and many other things.

Founded in 1997, Moleskine has become a popular brand and not only known for their notebooks but for new products such as pens and pencils, laptop cases, and iPad, iPhone, and Kindle covers! You can paint in their notebooks, write in their specialized travel notebooks, use their planner, etc.

Moleskine City Notebooks are a great product. A map of the city and metro system is included, and there’s plenty of room to write down whatever you want while you travel! Cities that they have are Amsterdam, Atlanta, Beijing, Berlin, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Toronto, Seattle, Tokyo, and so many more!

I personally have a Moleskine Pocket Notebook, one that I got from my professor when I studied abroad in London. I kept it in my purse and didn’t really know what to use it for. Eventually I made use out of all the pages. I wrote notes, thoughts, and little things here and there that I wanted to remember. I wrote down the small towns and cities I traveled to, quotes I saw in museums, addresses, etc. It became a part of me, a journal filled with thoughts and memories. I love looking back on it and remembering that part of my life!

You can write anything in these things, as it is yours to look at and to look back at. Show your creativity and fill it with notes, pictures, stuff that your friends say, inspirational quotes…

You can buy Moleskine at many stores. There are some at Barnes & Noble, college bookstores, and if you don’t have one near you, buy it online!

Tweet’, ‘Like’ and why not ‘Subscribe’! Their official Blog has ideas on what you can do…Let us know what you use your Moleskine for whether it’s a notebook or bag or pencil! 🙂


Smile with @Violight

One of the coolest products at NYIGF I saw is the antibacterial toothbrush Violight.  By using UV light, it kills 99.9% or germs on your toothbrush! They were chosen as one of Time Magazine’s Coolest Inventions of the Year.

They are fashionable and a pearly smile is oh so chic. The new Slim Sonics come in so many colors.

Which one do you like?
