Manifesto 1

Good morning,

I know, I’m super late on this post. It got held up due to my stupid cpu, ugh. Needless to say couple weeks ago in Toronto the annual Manifesto Festival was held at Nathan Phillips Square. For those that don’t know, it’s a festival celebrating all things Hip-Hop Culture related. From the music, to clothing, dancing, etc. There was a showcase of all types of Homegrown Talent, with the closing act being Talib Kweli. Some performers were KJ, Wolf, Branden Phillips, Lelani Dee (i’m sorry, if I spelt it wrong have to verify it) Tona, Ayah, Saukrates, Jahvon and the list goes on and on. Did I mention, this show was completely free? Pretty cool if you ask me. I met alot of¬†cool people and saw alot of familiar¬†faces. It was a good day just chilling out enjoying what Toronto has to offer.¬†Check the pics.

 

 

Stuff happens…

Good morning ,

 

We’re¬† 1 week away from the “Fresh Not Frozen” party on October 3rd and of course life happens sometimes. There is 1 change in the DJ Lineup, however this worked out extremely well.

The new lineup consists of DJ Rych Kydd (like before) and DJ Spoonz <–He’s LIVE.

I’m pretty excited about this, because those are 2 heavyhitters.

 

Quick Rundown: “Fresh Not Frozen

Address: Premium Rhythm Bar located at 173 Eglinton Avenue East

Hosted By:

Toronto Fresh & Special Guest(s)

‚ÄúShowing you the best things in life are FRESH‚ÄĚ

 

This is a 19+ event

¬†At this point, I think “what’s the dresscode” is a silly question unless otherwise stated. We are all grown people we should be dressing like that. Always try to look your best! You never know what my happen…

 

Come out and have a good time with me and my friends. If you have me on Facebook, you know we like to get down lol

Indoor BBQ

I love summertime.

The BBQ’s, the people, the music, the food, the beautiful people, the food, the sexy people on their game. Shoot let me stop.

Yesterday, I went to a BBQ  hosted by Blake, Marvin and Tristan. It was a good time. Alot of jokes, a whole lot of jokes. I met some cool new people, thanks for the jokes.  Only took a couple of pics for some reason. Too bad the weather SUCKED, so it was more of an indoor thing but it was still cool.

 

Wukking up… wukking up

Good morning ALL! 

I feel like it’s been a hot a** minute! This weekend was Caribana Weekend in Toronto (Torontos Carnival) and it was pretty hectic for me. The parade which was held on Saturday August 1st up and along the Lakeshore was busy just like every year passed. This year myself and some of my friends decided to play Mas with Carnival Nationz in the Morning Glory section and boy was it a great idea. We had so much fun, it was crazy. Throwing your inhibitions to the wind and just partying in the streets to some sweet soca music is always a good look.¬† The amount of people that asked to take pictures with us was crazy, I’m on a lot of folks cameras (hopefully looking proper). For the most part people were just having a nice time¬†there was some foolishness that occurred which really pisses me off. Why do people always have to try and ruin someone elses fun? As always the Americans came down to whine up and mack the Canadian cuties and some of the Canadian boys decided to pretend to be American (wack).¬† My friend asked this one guy “Where you from” he replied “Detroit” , so I gave him the side eye because I knew he wasn’t. A couple minutes later he said “nah nah, I’m from Mississauga”, I looked at him and said “Thank you, because I was going to call you out”. Why lie? Lameeeeee!¬† I saw so many friends, acquaintances, frenemies, phonies, formers, potentials (?, doubt it)¬†out there. Received some marriage requests, funny pick up lines, had a lot of cool conversations all in good fun. All that jumping up and waving did my body good.¬† Did I mention that Carnival Nationz won BAND OF THE YEAR?¬† Silly me, how I could I forget to mention that small tidbit. Goodtimes indeed.¬†

Way more pics will be added. 

Sunday Night, myself and my homegirls went to an Elite Boatride.  The music was banging, the people umm not so much. Not our type of crowd and also I felt out of place because I think on the ticket there was some kind of fine print saying you needed to bring a man or something. Needless to say we had fun except for a few things. Number 1, why were girls dressed like they were going to Square One on a Tuesday? Ummm hello? Can you step your game up for 2009? Number 2, why was the boat speeding? I felt at times that I was on Amazing Race or something. Number 3, why did our cabbie try to kick us out of his cab in the middle of nowhere downtown? He was getting a little unruly and thankfully (for him) he regained his senses and drove us to our destination. Despite all of that, I had a wicked night. Maybe it had to do with all that drinking. Who told me to have approx.8 shots of Vodka plus Smirnoffs? Gooooooodtimessssssss indeed.

I Am…

Good Evening Folks (I wrote this last night, to clear up  any confusion)

 

I’m still completely elated right now. Last night was the “I Am” Beyonce Tour stop in Toronto and you have to know by now that I am a HUGE Beyonce Knowles (Carter) fan. This is the thing about myself, I¬†LOVE Music so much. If I like an artist or song, I get excited. Music has the power to put you in a mood that you need to be in, or a mood that you need to have expressed. It’s an understatement to say that I appreciate those that put in hard work and love their craft. I love great singers, great performers, great dancers, just overall¬†great ¬†entertainment. All that with a¬†sweet personality and killer fashion sense? How could I not be all over that? Beyonce is to me what Michael Jackson was to our parents when we were younger. I know alot of you right now are like “No this girl did not just compare Beyonce to Michael!”. Stop, relax and take it in. Michael Jackson did so much for HIS CRAFT, he perfected what he loved and made it his life. He inhaled music and exhaled excellence. In MY humble opinion that is what Beyonce is to this generation. Personally I don’t give a damn if you agree with me or not, this is my blog and I’ll say what I want to say lol. For the most part a lot of people don’t like her because they believe she is too “nuff or extra”, that’s fine and dandy but why can’t people just admit that she’s great at what she does? To me, regardless of if you like her or not you cannot deny that this woman goes hard on that stage and gives it every drop of energy in her. Don’t believe me? Attend one of her shows or even just watch “The Beyonce Experience” DVD, then tell me she’s not on top of her game.

This is¬†my 3rd time seeing Beyonce in concert and each time I get a little closer to the stage, so it’s only fitting that the next time I will be front row and shall meet her backstage. Speak it into existence Neeks… speak it into existence.

The concert was held at The Molson Ampitheatre in Toronto and this is the first concert I had attended at this venue. I prefer the ACC, but this spot was alright. The show started at 7:30 sharp with the opening acts Eva Avila and then the girl group “Richgirl”.¬† *Yawn*. The crowd was feeling the same way I was, everyone was just amped to see the main act. My original seat was Section 202, seat 5 which was actually pretty decent but I wanted better. While sitting there to myself, (yes, I went solo dolo… I was born by myself!) I noticed a friend Erica sitting not to far from where my seat was located. As we stood there talking we resolved to get better seats because this was not a game to any of us. To make a long story short, 5 minutes before the show began I was standing by floor seats about 10 rows back Center Stage. It was as if all the planets aligned and gave us that big break, I kid you not.

It was kind of strange not having some of my closest friends in the place enjoying this with me, but you guys were there in spirit ‚̧

Once that show started, it was gametime. Beyonce came out in all of her fierceness and gave us the BUSINESS *surprise, surprise*. I was not disappointed, the only thing I was disappointed in was that the show wasn’t longer! A lot of times during the show, I stood there in awe and shock. It’s really weird to see someone that you admire on tv right a couple steps in front of your face. She ran through songs from her 3 albums (Dangerously in Love, B’Day and I Am) and also gave us some Destiny’s Child.¬†Then she surprised us with¬†some Canadian Flavor with a small Alanis Morrissette cover and Sarah McLachlan. Owwwwwww!¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†

The venue was PACKED! Seriously though, even the grass had people sitting on it. Toronto’s own Drake was in the building. If you heard the pre-teen girls screaming once he took his seat before the show started. It was bananas how many girls were just flashing cameras in his face. It was nice to see people acknowledging Toronto’s own talent, because I mean you have to support your own city before you support others right?

 

*My videos are kind of short because its really hard to videotape and do the whole dance routine and try not to sing into the camera as well LOL*

Continue to check back in this post because it will take maybe a day or 2 to upload all the videos.

Enjoy these as much as I do.

Miami Dreaming

Good morning folks,

 

God has a funny way¬†of telling you to slow down sometimes and just ‘be’. This horrible thing that I’ve been dealing with for a week now has been kicking my backside. I’m realizing more why I have it, and trying to not let it happen again. Thank you to everyone that’s been genuinly checking up on me, appreciate the soup/Vics/TLC offers. Mucho appreciated.

A couple days ago, myself and a lot of good people went out for a Farewall/Birthday Celebration for my good friend Malaika. She will be relocating to beautiful Miami to further her studies. Everything happened so quickly so it was very last minute and kind of surreal. It sucks to know that one of your true friends is going to be thousands of miles away. To me that means I am temporarily losing:

  • The person that if we have absolutely nothing to do we hit up the closest Red Lobster, Moxies, Popeyes or Swiss Chalet lol. We love food.
  • Who else am I going to call to say that the person on College Hill really did deserve to get cussed or boxed. Or that the girl from Top Model that got to stay is really murked and her attitude stinks?
  • Who else are Renee and I going to go to a soca party with?
  • Who else will I randomly spew Flavor of Love quotes with?

 

There are other many big things that came to my mind, but then I remembered you’re not going to be gone forever this is just a “See ya later “. I’m extremely happy for you, this is a major move and I’m proud that you had the guts to make it. If it was myself, I’d be there in a heartbeat without looking back.¬† Do well in your studies, party, meet a hot boy (or 2) and enjoy life.¬† The crazy friends that you have are already making plans to come down there so BE READY!

 

I love you and we’ll miss you TRICK!

 

(Btw this is my 100th Post!!!)

Kinda Like a Big Deal

Good afternoon folks,

 

I’m so sick right now, it’s ridiculous. I’m a pretty tough girl, I can handle pain for the most part but something about a sore throat turns me into a big baby. I have some sort of chest cold and I’m NOT happy about it. Last night the fever-ish symptoms I had really were not a good look, yuck!

Anyhow, on Friday night I went out to a party called “Kinda Like a Big Deal” at Vola Lounge. The party started off kind of slow but once it got nice, it got real nice. The thing about that club (it’s the former Blurr Nightclub) it gets SOOOO HOT.¬†I swear there is no form of ventilation in that spot, yikes. It was a sweat bucket, and since DJ Spoonz and Dj Rych Kidd were killing it everybody was wylin out. One of my highlights of the night was hearing “Summerbody Fit” in the club, I felt like a proud mama or something lol. Here are some pics, despite what one person thought I was not drunk. The height of my heels would not permit me to get drunk (I don’t get drunk anyway). Ladies you know what I’m talking about, your heel is so high that if you were to play around and get drunk that’s risking your whole life and ankles at that.
