'Nightmare on My Street' - DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince



I’m sure every other blogger will post Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ since it’s Halloween but even though I love that song, I think I’m fonder of ‘Nightmare on My Street.’ I used to love this song!

Have a safe and fun Halloween!




Happy Halloween! Halloween Drinks





Happy Halloween!


If you’re having a Halloween party and you’re stumped on festive drinks to serve, take a look at the list compiled below and you’ll be sure to have a party that will scare the pants off of everyone!


Brain Hemmorage

1 oz Peach schnapps
1 tsp Bailey’s irish cream
½ Grenadine

First, pour the peach schnapps. Then, slowly pour the Irish Cream. Do not mix! The Creme will clump together and settle at the bottom of the schnapps. It will have the appearance of an internal organ!! Pour the grenadine over the cream for a completely disgusting looking, yet thoroughly tasty party drink!


Pumpkin Pie

1 part Kahlua
½ part Bacardi 151 proof rum
Sprinkle Cinnamon on top

Mixing instructions:
Add Bailey's and Kahlua together in shaker and shake. Pour into shot glasses and add required amount of Bacardi to each and then sprinkle with cinnamon. Light on fire. Drink!

Jamie Foxx's 'Just Like Me' featuring T.I.



Is Jamie Foxx back? Just released, ‘Just Like Me’ features T.I. and it is slated to be on Jamie’s new album. I like it, though the chorus kinda reminds me of a male version of Mariah Carey’s ‘Touch My Body.’ Still hot though.

Have a listen:




Breakfast at Tiffany's




I was re-watching one of my favorite movies, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” and I’m still in awe at how fly Holly Golightly was. From her simple but chic dresses when she traveled to see Sally Tomato to her accessories when she slept.

With roommates and loud noise from the city streets, I often wish I could have a pair of Holly Golightly’s tassel earplugs to block out the distracting noise of the night to get some much needed beauty sleep.

Ear Plugs by Jen Gen has made the cutest earplug tassels that remind me of Ms. Golightly. And for $ 5.99 a pop, I say it’s a cheap investment to ensure my beauty rest.




I’m also going to pick up the Holly Golightly sleep mask to fully get my Audrey Hepburn on. How funky is this sleep mask? Sleep mask sold here.

Cherish's 'Bump Like Some Speakers'


I just found this Timberland produced track from the all girl group Cherish. I like the chorus up until they sing how we’re gonna bump like speakers, the lyrics before that are actually good lyrics and they sound mature, but the whole bumping like speakers throws me off. I think they like comparing love to items, I used to play their song, 'Chevy' out but again they compared love making to being treated like a chevy.

Come on Hottie, you know you can get a better weave and blonde just isn't your color. The hair, the makeup, the outfit, everything is just all-wrong.

Yana Chupenko, the original “Shiny Mama” came to United States as a child from Ukraine in the mid 70’s and settled in Queens, New York.
