Artists of the Week

I love it when my friends give me new ideas for music to check out. My friends have a diverse taste in music which is great for getting me out of my Indie/Alternative box. In the spirit of the Juno Awards in town this weekend here are some songs to get you in the party mood.

Calvin Harris - I Feel So Close. Not only is this Scottish DJ/songwriter/singer/record producer cute but he whips out some sick beats that make you want to dance all night long. This is my FAVORITE song right now!!

Rihanna - You Da One. Rihanna seems to pump out a constant flow of top hits. This one is my favorite because she returns to her Caribbean roots with slow reggae beats and her Carib accent.

Cassius - I Love You So. This sultry, tasty song is great to listen to in a dark lounge. It gives any atmosphere a sexier vibe.

Have a great weekend!!

Trending with Tommy

It's Wednesday again which means it's Trending with Tommy day! This time we are headed to the beaches of Japan for some stylish beach wear. Tommy shot an ad called 'Going to Rainbow Beach' for Vogue Japan. I love the bright colors, oversized hats and the funky heels (check out the scuba outfit...fabulous!) Now we just need some sun and a beach Otown!







Beachtastic!

Dress Thinner

Well, I got my Women's Health Daily Dose as usual and was happy to see something about style (and I'm not talking workout gear). The Dose today is '5 Ways to Dress 10 Pounds Thinner'. Who wouldn't love to look like they've lost weight without having to do all the dieting and working out? Get a notepad and pen ladies....here we go:

1) Boot Cut Jeans - dark boot legs are the most flattering, giving you a long, lean look.

2) Body Lengthening Clothes - a common misconception is that baggy clothes make you look skinnier...wrong! Wear clothes that are body skimming such as lightweight vertical pieces (cardigans, scarves, necklaces) to create a body-lengthening look.





3) Structured Fabric - dresses made from structured fabric hide imperfections (hmm hmm muffin top) while crisscross detailing gives you that hourglass shape.



4) Accentuate Your Waist - try a flowy dress with a thin belt to define your waist. Make sure that if you cover your chest to show some leg and finish off the look with high platform heels (the further you are from the ground the thinner you'll look).
5) Long Dark Pants - shoe-skimming super dark pants give you a long, lean silhouette. If you are bottom heavy wear the pants with a light colored shirt.



Remember, accessories also help create length and hide imperfections. Good luck ladies!

Artists of the Week

I'm back again with my top 3 Artists of the Week. Summer is going strong so I wanted to find  songs that reflect the hot sun, warm breeze and long bike rides along the river finishing off with a cold beer on the patio with friends.

Two Door Cinema Club - What You Know. This upbeat song makes you want to throw a Frisbee around on the beach with your friends, laughing hysterically.

Great Lake Swimmers - Easy Come Easy Go. I LOVE this up-and-coming band with its smooth acoustic sound and easy going vibes.


Yukon Blonde - Fire. These guys are a throwback to Lynyrd Skynyrd with their deep south rock 'n' roll. This is perfect for chillin' on the patio.


Summer loving is here so enjoy!
