Music for the Soul-Bruno Mars

Doo - Wops & Hooligans

My friend S is obsessed with Bruno Mars today placing her obsession to Kanye West on a brief hold, and yes I said brief. You see her undying love for Kanye runs so deep that she will smack her mother over Kanye West.  Now having said that, let’s go back to Mars. What she loves most about Bruno is that he can bring any woman to that sensitive spot in her mind were even his teeth will get admiration.

Now as for me I had to take a listen, after all the only thing I was hearing was basically how cute he is and how perfect his mouth was. I was beginning to think he was just a (look at me) kind of guy. I’ve been exploring into R&B these past couple of days and I decided to give his pop a chance, and I have to say that after listening to his new album I can totally understand why all the women are going crazy over him.  His style is fresh and catchy, plus he gets brownie points for the complements he gives to women on his tracks; Bruno- that’s simply tasteful ma’ man. I really think he gets it, and this will sets him apart from a lot of the music out there with tasteless lyrics.  I really hope he can control his habits long enough to realize that he has something great going on here, keep writing all these poppy love songs Bruno cause it’s what women want!

Monday’s Eye Candy- Michael Buble

 

I happen to think that Michael Buble is the most adorable man alive.  And right now I find myself in the mood for some Michael bliss all over the place, he has such an amazing voice and it brings the holidays to a nice jump start.  A lot of people like to refer to Buble as the Frank Sinatra of our time, but I would happen to say that he reminds me of Dean Martin.  And I couldn’t help but to feature this lovely face just in time for the holidays.  Enjoy!

 

 

  

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

This is the time of year when we start to slow down for a moment to give thanks.  It’s a day we get to spend with those we love and remember all the fun memories we’ve had throughout the year, and the best part of it all is that we get to eat!

As I prepare the table and place the best looking turkey in the history of our family to date for us to enjoy, I want to wish everyone the best Thanksgiving ever.

I will be back next week for Monday’s Eye Candy, stay tuned I feel a nice one coming!

Mike Peralta

 

I came across Mike Peralta when I was trying to find a-way-out of my John detox after Mayer dropped his album on me last November.  I have yet to recover.  Moreover I possess a very strong liking for guitarist, I don’t know what it is about them that builds this passion inside me to appreciate music even more, perhaps it’s the way they hold this piece of instrument that completely draws me in, but whatever it maybe, that is exactly what Mike’s music did.  It brought me to a place where I started to appreciate listening as appose to hearing.  His music became part of the soundtrack to my sleepless nights.  It was all worth it, Thank you Mike.

Take a listen and let me know what you think, also head on over to twitter and follow him for some pretty funny and random tweets.

 

 

Monday’s Eye Candy- Randy Orton

Randy Orton

 

I know I’ve stated that I wasn’t into washboard abs (believe me I’m not) but I do have a thing for tall men with cocky attitudes who sport beasty looking tattoos.  Feast your eyes on my all time guilty pleasure Randy Orton.  Yes… I confess, I watch this gossip show fit for men, but can you blame me?  He is quite possibly the only reason why I would endure a wasteful hour of body slapping, tight pulling, head smacking, and trash talking not to mention body oil for the moment, just so that I can set my eyes on him for a few minutes.

I know what you must be thinking, I’m condoning this complete waste of TV space, this mind numbing hour of my life that I will never get back for the likes of catching him on a acted out wrestling match, but can you blame me, have you seen him?  I can’t help but turn to mooch when I see this 6’5 inch man take over my television, he is utterly divine and the only reason why I would undergo such torture.  Enjoy.

The Perfect Holiday Dress!

Nicole Miller…where do I start? I once lived with a girl who knew Marc Jacobs’ boyfriend so she was literally one degree away and by knowing her I was two degrees away. Now this isn’t big news for you New Yorkers but for us Miamians it’s huge! Even bigger when you see all of the Ed Hardy we have to contend with. That said, I guess it’s not too crazy to assume SOMEONE out there knows Nicole Miller and if you do would give her a big kiss on the lips from me.

How fricken amazing is this dress? It’s got a VERY interesting collar it’s stretchy in all the right places and while I don’t like black clothing this is definitely an exception. Nicole Miller is win win win 85% of the time. You can find her dresses at any Nordstrom store and even at JCPenny! She’s got something for everyone and I think she deserves your hard earned cash.

When You Are Engulfed in Flames-David Sedaris

 

My friend S came over last weekend and handed me this book, and while she placed it on my hands she said “Now you’re a fan” It was all in humor until I started reading the damn thing and boy was she right! I was drawn instantly; this book has had me Laughing Out Loud, He is so brilliant with his form of writing that it has kicked my little Sloane off of my silver shelving in which she sat to perfectly lovely until someone took it right out of my house!  Now, I have just started this book and already I find it hard to put it down, the beginning had me in stitches which is safe to assume that the end is going to be just as great.

Have you read David Sedaris Books? What do you think?

Trends- Ray Ban

Original Wayfarer

 Ray Bans  have been around forever, however this past summer the Original Wayfarer were the fashion must haves; now if you ask me they are welcomed to stay for as long as they’d like, I love them.  It’s become the ultimate trend with the dark lenses or light lenses everyone is rocking a pair of these bad boys all over town now a days.  And the best part of the trend this year, is that they come in all colors and people are even matching them with their shoes!  What! 

Do you own a pair? I want to hear from you.

I love listening to new bands, picking up new albums and even meeting the members of a new group just to see them thrive on to stardom; it makes it very special when you have been a part of it from the very beginning.   Now, I didn’t find this group at the start of the band, but I found them just in time to see what happens next, and believe me when I say; I can’t wait to see it all come together for them since they have become my very own personal band.  I’ve been listening to this group for over a year now; I found them by chance while storming thru the countless Indie artists’ on Itunes as I looked for something to keep me up during the endless nights I spent trying to finish my novel.  And I’m glad I did because it seems that I too have caught their eye on twitter making them my New BFFs of the World :)   I’m giddy about them just as much as I am giddy about chocolate, and you all know how much I love chocolate.  ILOVECHOCOLATE!  Allow me to introduce to you Rick, Eddie, and Patrick this is glo.  Thanks and your welcome!

I hope you enjoy this week’s choice of music,  glo has made it into my everyday playlist I hope they make it into yours.  Click to hear more on their MySpace, I should re-open my old MySpace account just for the new material coming in.  Enjoy!  :)

 Tell me what you think of them.

Monday’s Eye Candy- Nicholas Gonzalez

 

Nicholas Gonzalez

This is a very different look for the Monday’s Eye Candy spot.  Nicholas Gonzalez wouldn’t normally catch my eye, because for some reason I am not into the washboard abs/big body look.  However when I saw this man featured as one of the most beautiful bodies of 2010, I couldn’t help but do a double take.  And it doesn’t hurts that this Latino is so freakishly cute either. WOW!  Enjoy.
