TRUST

Standard

There are a few things I’ve learned, but one of them is to trust no one. If you do this, then you have nothing to lose, because you expect nothing less. No one to fight for you, no one to truly try to understand and want to help you, nothing. But when you have yourself, who cares, because you get so much more out of life, when you truly love yourself.

Certain people and events start to matter less, become irrelevant and seem like they never even were, and to me, that is an amazing trait of human nature. The allowance to remove emotion from yourself.

Remember that you can always be bigger and better than everyone. You can walk with your head held so high above the sky, no one even questions your actions. You can let people ruin themselves on their own. You can take all negativity, and use it to make yourself even more powerful and strong. More clear and concise, and only LOGICAL.

This is not to say don’t have friends, don’t have fun, I mean come one, that’s what life is about…. but always be on your guard. Even the people that should fight for you, will not sometimes.

So I leave you with this. Keep your head held high, because no matter what, there is always something more and better for you.

Birthday Party!

Standard

My best friends 22nd Birthday was this weekend so naturally we had to do it up right.

Appetizers:

Crab Rangoon, Buffalo Wings, Jalapeño Poppers, Mac N’ Cheese Bites, and Bruschetta was on the menu.

Drinks:

Goose Joose I made from Lemonade Concentrate, Red Bull, Not Enough Vodka (in reality more than should ever be), Triple Sec, Peach Schnapps.

Bottles of Moët Chandon and Veuve Clicquot were passed throughout the party. We do things the right way. TOP SHELF.

If there is one thing I love about my friends, we all give and give in to peer pressure within about 5 seconds. Everyone is so fucking crazy I cannot even handle it sometimes. 4.0 students, that are athletic, naturally genius and have out livers….. you couldn’t imagine the shenanigans.

My best friend (and the birthday girl) are pictured here below. She wore a gorgeous, low cut, magenta romper, tan wedges, and accents of gold jewelry everywhere. I wore a pair of Snakeskin legging, with a black shirt that has a slit all the way up the back for a little sex appeal. Black Steve Madden wedges topped my outfit.

Stay tuned for more posts this week! I finally have time to blog again!

I will also leave my favorite DJ mix of the week. TCHAMI, amazing DJ, especially live. He has the deep and tech house down to a science. Stay fabulous my people.

Moonrise Festival

Standard

I have just gotten back from a weekend in Baltimore, Maryland at the Moonrise Festival. Once again, spent the day eating up the sun dancing, drinking, smoking, raving and all of the happiness and peace the comes along with festival life. I am still in that mood where I’m to happy to actually be in real life. I do need to go into to work at some point today though.

The music was so amazing, production, lights, sound, people and DJs put on an amazing festival. The crowd was pretty decent, as sometimes their can be questionable people there, but I give the festival 4.5 Stars for sure. Good job Moonrise!

I met Anna Lunoe and the was probably my favorite festival experience. She DJ’d a phenomenal set. Disclosure, some of her originals, Don Diablo, and of course she introduced me to the new track Beat That Bitch With A Bat… Original artist is Blackman, pretty old classic.

This Diplo & Friends mix with Anna Lunoe pretty much describes her talented Djing skills and sick taste in music.



Figure was there and was fucking killing it on the DJing but the sound was off in the big dance tent compared to the other stages, and being the sound snob that I am, I left after a half hour. But Figure….. You’re a fucking bomb ass DJ.

Shiba San played this amazing house song called OKAY also. SO SO sick. THE BASS. Ahhhh, I still have the shivers. As for the rest of the shows and sets. AH-MAZING. Check out the line-up!

Boston Part II

Standard

Ah, my weekend in Boston. Man do I not want to be working right now. This weekend was too good to want to come back to work. But here I am, listening to the Russians report Database issues and programming Risk Assessments… How exhilarating.

Boston was amazing.

Alcohol Picks for the Weekend:

Sam Adams Boston Brick Red: A unique and special beer, only native to Boston, home of the brewery. It has many hints of caramel and is an ale. Was great for the tastebuds.

Uncle Val’s Botanical Gin:  A small distillery labels batch and brew number with a pen. Such a unique, made with love gin. This gin is high quality and very potent. The botanicals in the gin are marvelous and it is really strong, 90 Proof. Beware. It will sneak up on you… (especially when drinking it from a granite spout).

redmart-067

Kendall-Jackson, Vintner’s Reserve, Sauvignon Blanc: A light and delicious wine. Very good for summer. Very light. The bottle on the picture below was also a Sauv. Blanc…. Not entirely sure if I remember it….. OOPS.

DRINKING in STYLE:

IMG_20140711_204822_678

Now I don’t know about anyone else, but I like to drink with style. For example, out of this rock…. It’s a slab of real heavy granite, with a hole for the top of the bottle to go in. Using PHYSICS, you can know that the air pressure keeps the bottle from draining out all the way (over the top) and only into the spout.

Rule Number 1: DO NOT put Champagne or any carbonated alcohols in the stone. IT WILL FIGHT BACK.

Boston is such a beautiful city. The architecture, bricks, Espalande… amazing. There were so many little shops and restaurants, it was so amazing.

Dartmouth Ave., Boston, MA – The Brick and Wrought Iron is Stunning

The Espalande at Night

The newest restaurant I discovered is called Sweet Green. The freshest and best salads you could ever imagine. The minute you walk in, it smells like Basil. You can choose so many options and everything is super fresh. DELICIOUS!!! There is also one in Ardmore, PA, which I will be visiting most likely tonight, because Philly is just that good too.

We went to a lot of bars and walked all over the downtown areas. The streets and buildings are amazing. I wish I could speak more about some of the bars… but again, I don’t really remember. But they were serving some of the STRONGEST gin and tonics I have ever had.

A great weekend, a great town and a great many things I was able to experience!! I will end on this message: don’t forget to smoke your J’s, run your miles and look your finest all week. Fabulousness goes alooooong way! 😉 1405228005040

Boston

Standard

This weekend I am going to Boston to visit my extremely intelligent, funny and handsome best friend. He is the brother I have never had. I’m extremely excited because its been some time since we could see each other being in two different cities. He’s always been my rock. Extremely rational and tell it like it is. It will be very good for me to get out of my town because working for a Pharmaceutical Company has really proven to be STRESSFUL. I’m working 70 hour weeks because my boss loves me and my work ethic. He loves that I am a crazy nerd, but lets be real…. I am still a baby, and Project Managing two projects is extremely difficult especially when people don’t want to take me seriously. You may be older and been in the industry for years, but there is a reason I am in charge, because I’m really smart and can bring a lot to the table. I have already far exceeded all expectations so I am not asking for a lot; trust my skills.

AMTRAK is awful. Business class is the way to go. Do you seriously want to sit next to someone or hours in pain over smell or sickness or let’s face it… That baby crying near you will drive you insane. Yes you’re paying more money but if you are like me, travel needs to be stress free not stressful. It is a vacation not a hate-my-life-cation. Anyway this is my bored on the train with no internet post. Check back for details of my weekend.

PS: THE THEME OF THE WEEKEND IS GIN. As always. UHDUH!!
