1 // wear metallic, red, & velvet.

2 // if attention is what you seek, a hat is what you need. well done Pharrell.

3 // if you wake up with a facial blemish, rock a space helmet. Daft Punk brought it back. and made it cool.

4 // thank you speeches are overrated. silence is golden. [refer to above: Daft Punk].

5 // Sara Bareilles is my hero. she’s so inspirational. and her performance with Carole King was amazing. goose bump worthy.

6 // also goose bump worthy: Imagine Dragons & Kendrick Lamar. they had signed up for a color run but then found out the Grammy’s were on the same day. So they brought the color dust to their performance. It worked.

7 // Madonna wore a grill, on her teeth and wasn’t seen without a cane. I couldn’t stop thinking “pimp” & singing “call me George Foreman cuz I’m selling everybody grillz”. thank you Nelly.

8 // Lorde was the big winner. and she deserves it. but lady stand tall. #NoSlouchNecessary.

9 // John Legend is the narrator of my dreams.

10 // Pink’s circus-inspired performance was amazing. and she was so graceful hanging from the ceiling. but I couldn’t help but think ..does she have a live-in bikini waxer?

11 // Ringo Starr & Paul McCartney sang together. it made my heart smile. wish they would’ve belted out a beatles tune.

12 // Yoko Ono had too much spotlight. I’m salty towards her. she broke up the beatles.

13 // Yoko Ono’s dance moves make Taylor Swift’s look genius. #dancingpeacesigns.

14 // Jay Z and Beyoncé performed together. then america awed in unison.

15 // until Macklemore & Ryan Lewis sang “Same Love,” and 33 couples were married by Queen Latifah. beautiful.


what tips did you take from the Grammy’s last night?

I had so much fun live tweeting throughout the Grammy’s, from the red carpet to the final performance. I just may do the same during the Super Bowl on Sunday. and all of you should join me.

happy monday!

memory lane.

{blog every day in may}

“five songs that speak to you or bring back memories”.

I don’t know if I can narrow it down to five. I cling to music to get me through, well, everything. every year, friendship, & struggle has a song [or five] that goes along with it.

breakaway by kelly clarkson. it takes me back to 18. getting ready to leave for college. as nervous as I was, I’d listen to this song and be excited of the possibilities ahead. even to this day.

[the next two I have loved since age 5].

forever young by rod stewart. it’s just a great song about growing up. and falling in love. when it comes on, I will sing loudly. regardless of my surroundings. be warned.

 faithfully by journey. one word: classic. [& beautiful].

someone somewhere by jason reeves. this man has a way with words. and in college, I listened to him on repeat. this was one of my favorites. about finding you’re “someone”. and coincidentally, I found mine right around that time.

no boundaries by kris allen. anytime I’ve felt lost, or discouraged .. this is my go to. [“you can go higher. you can go deeper. there are no boundaries, above or beneath you. break every rule, because there’s nothing between you & your dreams“].

I thought the hardest part would be picking five songs. nope, it was trying to get these songs & my blog to cooperate. if they look goofy, I apologize. I wrestled with them for hours. they’re stubborn. 

on that note, [grrrr], I’m off to go get some work done. and watch it rain, again.

[I have another post coming later today. since I’m a day behind in the ‘challenge’].

happy thursday.
