    A Night with the Stars @ CAPE + Verizon’s #IAM Night Out

    Ciao lovelies! This past week I was fortunate to join CAPE + Verizon’s #IAM Night Out in NYC.

    Go Beyonce Go Beyonce!!!

    I dunno about the title, it just seemed right, avoiding the rhyme. ‘Countdown’ is the track… but this video, to me, is a testimonial to the husslaaa that is Ms. Beyonce Knowles. Even while “with child”, she’s on the grind, making it work. Visually, this is one of the most engaging videos she (or anyone else in a mainstream environment) has done in a very long time! Drums, thong, Andy Warhol, pop art, head shots… I Love this video, take it in and applaud with me! xo

    What Up With Joaquin?

    While home sicky-icky, I stumbled across this flick on Joaquin Phoenix called “I’m Still Here” and couldn’t help but hold the channel… shot in documentary-style, the camera follows Joaquin (pronounced WAH-keen) and his battle with drugs after his announcement to leave acting and focus on a RAP career. Catch the official trailer… I won’t spoil the film, but I will tell you that I couldn’t resist doing more research and (while it was totally worth watching) theres more to this story… First, I was literally in tears watching, as Joaquin Phoenix is an actor that I literally grew up with; my Mum and her friends were a huge fan of…
