No Merch(andise) March…

So for March 2013, I’ve decided to start what I call the “No Merch(andise) March”. Basically that means that I won’t be buying any unnecessary things, like clothes, shoes, bags, and makeup. My spending habits so far have been out of hand, so this was a way for me to curve it before my vacation in April. So I’m hoping I don’t give into my shopping addiction…please let the saving gods be with me this month lol!

So what are some ways you save? Let me know in the comment section!

Check back for updates here and on my YouTube channel

Ok Bye Yinz Guys!

It’s Me…

So I was on Tumblr like an hour ago, and I came across the trailer for Pac Div upcoming web series…and guess what…I’M IN IT. Lol…I was pleasantly surprise. Yes it’s only for a sec but still, plus if you know me you know that I’m a HUGE Pac Div fan so yes I’m kind og GEEKED! Pac Div: The Series is a web series chronicling the life of group members Like, BeYoung and Mibbs as they set out to release their debut album “Grown Kids Syndrome”. I’m at the 1:08-1:09 mark.

I Got You Stuck Off The Realness…

If you’re one of my neighbors and you also happen to be a reader “I’m Sorry” that you have had to hear this song full blast for like over a month now. If you follow me on twitter you would know that I am a huge supporter…fan…whatever you want to call it of  Pittsburghs own The 58’s, and that I’m alway quoting lyrics from their self-titled mixtape that was released a few months ago. I’ve also mentioned them quite a few times on here as well.

They continue to feed my horrible habit of listening to things at an extreme volume by releasing the visuals for one of my favorite tracks on the mixtape, B.White “The Realness”. So I just thought I would share with my readers who may not be familiar with the group which is made of 6 dope MC’s on their own…I really can’t say enough dope things about them.  HOPE YOU ENJOY!

And if you like what you’re seeing you can download the mixtape HERE

YouTube Tuesday…Laughing Baby In Slow Motion Edition

This weekend I will get the joy of spending time with my 3-year-old baby cousin Alana, her dad my cousin Lamar and his wife Dayna. I’m super excited because I rarely get to see them because they live in Florida(lucky them). Also this weekend we will be celebrating all the month of May birthdays as well which is Alana, my mom and a few other family members birthday.

So I thought a way to celebrate my baby girls visit with a video I’ve seen a few times on twitter. I mean if this video doesn’t make you chuckle, even just a little bit…then you have no soul lol. Enjoy!

YouTube Tuesday…Hair Edition

So I know I have been doing A LOT of bloggig about my hair, and I said that I wasn’t going to bore anyone with hair talk for a while. But this past week I was in Philly visiting with my little sister and she was telling me that she was starting to feel unhappy with her hair. She was saying that she sometimes feels like she’s not as pretty or whatever as a lot of the girls she works with, because most of the girls she works with have long flowing hair weaves. Now if you know my sister, you know that this is just a phase…cause my sister is one of the most beautiful girls I know…and she knows it too. But just like most women, we go through a “I’m Ugly” moment.

Last Thursday my friend @missbrandii tweeted me a YouTube link and then today while I was blog suffering I came across a new blog called Black Girl In Russia, where she discusses going to school abroad and living in Russia while maintaining her natural hair. That’s where I came across a music video by Dead Prez called “The Beauty Within”. So I’m mainly doing this post to cheer up my sister, but it also was a little boost for me too. So I thought I would share it…and maybe it could be a boost for you as well!!!

The video is from FreshHonesty.com

YouTube Tuesday…Late Edition

I’m a couple hours late with my YouTube Tuesday post, but this song…so me right now. I finally got around to purchasing his MOTM Vol 2. Which is fitting because I became a Kid Cudi fan super late from the start. But yeah, this is just ME…I’m feeling like a ghost right now…REAL TALK.

Feel Good Music…

Since I’ve found out about Pittsburgh rapper MyKoolB , I’ve been on the hunt for more of his music. His song “Wuddup” is so far my FAVORITE, it’s one of those feel good songs. And even though it last a little over 2 mins, it still gives you that “I’m A Make It” unstoppable feeling. And who wouldn’t want to start their morning off feeling “UNFUCKWITABLE” lol!

Also you can go HERE for his latest mixtape “I Can’t Hold It In”

SideNote: Video is directed by Brandon Dull who also hails from Pittsburgh!!!

YouTube Tuesday…tabi Bonney Edition

I can honestly say that I will never get tired of this song or video. I love how the song is so uplifting, which now and days is far and few between. I love how sharp the video is, almost like you’re actually living the video…and I’m all about the bike riding.

Whenever I’m having a crappy day, are having a hard time writing I usually keep this song on repeat. And it doesn’t hurt that Tabi Bonney is an AWESOME guy. I actually won tickets back in August to see him while he was in Baltimore, but at the last min had to cancel due to an emergency. Then I missed him when he came to the Burgh, I was so sick about it, especially being that I had to work right up the street from the venue. Rumor has it that he may be back in March, if so COUNT ME IN!

So yeah, for your viewing pleasure…The ending is so CLUTCH!

ALSO…Some how, when that time comes I plan on incorporating this song into my wedding…if not the whole video…BET!
