After years of voyeuristic dance floor research at the or “da” club depending on who you are speaking with, I’ve learned that white girls suffer from multiple personality disorder on the dance floor. It was reaffirmed to me this past weekend at Neon Carnival. The DJ was playing an eclectic mix of music ranging from all decades and all genres. Everybody has a certain style on the dance floor; I think it depends on how comfortable you feel being there anyway. However, the only people whose choreographic choices kept drastically changing depending on what kind of song was playing were white girls. It was like watching Cybil.. an 80′s hit would play and they would adhere with a comfortable two step and maybe a kick and a punch, then to a fist pump to a hip hop summer jam they would proceed as if the only thing that was missing was a pole between their legs when da beat dropped. Is it that they are hiding their secret fantasies of being a booty girl in a hip-hop video? Or an incredible pole dancer like Nicole “The Pole” Williams?… Needless to say the only people embodying completely different personalities depending on the song being played were white girls… Why do we do that? I have to be honest, I’m guilty of doing this sometimes too! Does the music make us manifest into alter egos of the people who we wish we were? Which famous music video girl would you be?

It’s the 102nd ANNIVERSARY of the Titanic’s tragic sinking! Such a majestic ship but a sad SAD story. So much history involved with this event. One of my mother’s school teachers was a Titanic survivor. I’m sharing with you some VERY INTERESTING facts in honor of this day!!
TEN THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THE TITANIC
1. Captain Smith canceled a Lifeboat Drill UNEXPECTEDLY the day the Titanic hit the iceberg.
2. When the iceberg was spotted and alarms were sounded, crew only had 37 seconds to react. UNFORTUNATELY it was too late to change course.
3. The Titanic printed its own newspaper every day, covering everything from GOSSIP to STOCK PRICES.
4. Most safety lifeboats were not filled to capacity. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT??? Lifeboat 1 carried only 12 people even though it could have held 40.
5. Third class had to share only TWO BATHTUBS for 700 guests. That’s insane!!
6. Two dogs were managed to be saved in lifeboats.
7. Though it had no practical purpose, a fourth funnel was added to the design of the ship to make it appear more IMPRESSIVE.
8. The CALIFORNIAN ship not the CARPATHIA was closest to the Titantic but didn’t respond to the distress signals.
9. The Titanic was a ROYAL MAIL SHIP and was a mail delivery ship for the British Postal Service
10. A little over 300 corpses were found but a third of them were BURIED AT SEA due to body damage.
I love a good black mesh bootie because I find them not only to be fabulously chic but I have also come to realize that they are an every woman kind of shoe. They look good on almost all women. WHY???? Because the mesh allows you to see your natural flesh tone there for elongating your legs and giving the illusion that your legs are longer than they are. Let’s face it ladies, unless you are Karlie Kloss or Taylor Swift, who doesn’t want longer legs? Here are some of the examples of what I am talking about.
These Bionda Castana beauties range around $500 (top left) or the more affordable but equally as beautiful Letizia bootie designed by Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry ranging at around $120 (top right)! I personally own these they are so comfortable!!!!!!
Recently everywhere I go I have literally been accosted so people can inquire as to where I got my Chanel No. 5 Perfume bottle iPhone case necklace. I am all about sharing the wealth and have never really been one to keep things to myself, so I thought I would let you know where I got it and my story in finding it!
About 4 months ago, I was perusing the Internet looking to see what vintage Chanel treasures I could find to add to my obsessive collection when I came across a picture of a beautiful Japanese girl wearing the iPhone case. I immediately called my friend Colin at Chanel and he had no idea what I was talking about!!! I even went as far as calling my friends that work at Chanel in Paris… still nothing. So I made it my mission to find it. After about a week of hunting website after website it suddenly hit me. The one site that I did not check was the one site in the world you can literally find anything, AMAZON!!!!!!!!!!!! Low and behold there it was. Naturally I was like a mad women and bought one for all my girlfriends as it ranged in price from just $18- $24 #FashionBargain!!!!!! Now you know where to get it. Will you be getting one?
Today’s MUSIC Monday is dedicated to one of my dear friends of many years, SIA. It has been a true pleasure getting to watch this amazing woman get to share her amazing GIFT OF MUSIC with the world. Not only is she a remarkable talent as both an artist and a writer, she’s worked with practically every big name in the business from BEYONCE and RIHANNA to EMINEM, CELINA DION and DAVID GUETTA. One of the reasons why I truly RESPECT her vision and craft is because of how she measures success. One of my favorite quotes from her is what she told me. “I’m attempting to make pop music without selling my face. My brand is the blonde bob. If you see a blonde bob, a blonde bob wig or blonde bob art, then it’s probably me. You know how yucky fame is! I don’t want it!” Her newly-released single, Chandelier, is out on the market RIGHT NOW!!! Check it out below. Everyone go out and get it!! and also LISTEN to one of my favorite videos from her below!! “day to soon” is a musical dream. xoxo
