    36 hours in Frankfurt

    I had an eventful week!  On Monday night, I flew to Frankfurt to attend a beauty workshop for P&G and Wella for an international brainstorm.  Sali came from London, Donald came from Hong Kong and I came from New York to discuss various trends in hair, beauty in our local markets.

    It was a full day of beauty pow wows with STURM und DRANG, a German-based research institute and strategic consultancy!

    Here I am with the crew

    Music eh! Don’t touch the dial!

    I know it’s been a minute, since I did a music eh post, but a bish’s schedule has been hectic. What better way to dive back into the wonderful world of music, than by treating our ears to some of that good good from the lovely PG. You already know how I feel about this miss right here! I friggin’ love her, and she’s giving us more of that GOOD music!

    peace, love and health

    ♥Bella♥

    ps: Her album “The Elements of PG” drops at the end of this month… Gotta HAVE IT. Make sure you visit her website, and show her some L-O-V-E.

    Music Eh! – PG Musiq

    Check out her video for Lady with Kyauna Clarke I love them both….

    PG was first introduced to me via the intimate and interative that Bella and I attended back in March. Since then, I have been trying to download everyone’s mixtape- especially this little pint size woman. PG is a bad chick, literally. She can rap like Nicki Minaj and sing like Alicia Keys. The girl is off the hook. (lol, and I don’t say that often).

    Add her on Facebook

    Music eh! So Intimate & Interactive

    Tanya and I had the pleasure of attending Friday night’s Intimate Interactive with The Remix Project, featuring Andreena Mill, and the Remix Project’s; Kyauna Clarke, PG, Savannah Re, and Courtney Taylor, at Suba Lounge. I expected singing, but these ladies were SANGING! I had chills and goosebumps throughout all the performances; it was crazy. There was so much energy in all the performances, and the crowd showed so much love and support; i’m honoured to have experienced all that L-O-V-E. It was truly, Intimate & Interactive.

    Miss Andreena Mill- I’d never seen her perform, and I had no idea what a treat I was in for. She’s fantastic. Real talk. She’s gorgeous and have you seen those legs? OW! She has an amazing voice, and so much ENERGY when she performs. There’s no diva nonsense going on here, but there is some SERIOUS…SERIOUS talent. I love, love, loved, that she smiled throughout her entire performance. She sang, smiled, danced, and interacted with the crowd; giving us an excellent performance overall. 8 songs baby. Yeah I know, I’d be sad I missed it too. HA!

    Oh Kyauna… *heart* you- she seemed cool and calm, and has a soothing and very pretty voice to match! You know when you get that tingly feeling in your chest when you hear certain songs? when you’re really feeling the music? her voice does that…well for me anyway 🙂 When her performance was over I was fighting the urge to start chanting, “one more song!” out-loud with my fist in the air. What can I say, I could hear her sing all day.

    To be honest, I fell in love with PG while I was checking out her music last week. She sings, she raps, she’s petite with a GINORMOUS presence. I was so excited to see her perform and everything was just perfect. *ahem* Gotta start working on these vocals so we can do a song! ha ha ha. But for real. She’s dope. I could really go on and on, but then you guys might start thinking I’m obsessed and ish… *grins*

    Savannah Re. What can I say. I don’t even know. Someone said to me that they’d heard her sing before and that she had a beautiful voice, but I had to hear it for myself. She gave more than just a beautiful voice, there was soul, and there was passion; I have to admit that I definitely wasn’t expecting it, and was totally blown away. I think my mouth was hanging open at some point… Goosebumps galore, that feel good music for real.

    Oh man, Courtney Taylor… WATCH OUT for this girl! Seriously. She’s only 17, writes her own music, and plays the guitar…don’t get me started on that sweet, comforting, grab-you-by-the-heartstrings melody that is her voice. Please, don’t get me started lol. I’d be a proud momma if this was my youngin’.

    She just oozes with talent this woman

    Saukrates came out. They performed “You and Tomorrow” and  killed the stage. Straight murked it. Well done lady and gent 🙂

    “On the floor, through the roof, I’m standing here with you… you my home, you my club, you my office”– Saukrates

    “I’m feeling for what’s about to follow-oh, I got you and tomorrow”– Andreena Mill *now playing* You and Tomorrow. you can download it here

    Andreena premiered her new video for , directed by and we all loved it. Tika looked delish huh? I know, and she was an awesome host too.

    All in all, I think it’s safe to say that everyone had a great night. It was cold outside, but it was definitely worth the trip to come out and see all these artists perform. I applaud everyone that came out and showed support for our local talent, Toronto’s got mad LOVE for their city.

    Thank you so much to Tika Simone and The Remix Project for treating us to this one of a kind experience.

    peace, love and health

    ♥Bella♥
