Guilty Pleasure: Inna

Inna is a Romanian pop singer who has been especially popular in Eastern and Western Europe. I first heard her while I was studying abroad in Paris. I have admitted before that my guilty pleasure is techno, and Inna plays to this perfectly.

Okay fine, I’m also incredibly jealous of her hair… but do we think it’s extensions?

My personal favorite is “Hot”:

She is going on her first world tour in 2011 – who’s in??

Holiday Playlists

Music is always an important aspect of the holiday season. You need music not only for Christmas dinner, but for baking, winter get-togethers, and just relaxing and sipping hot coco on cold winter nights. Here are some of my favorites to listen to for the holidays.

1. Norah Jones

Something about her voice reminds me of New York City during the holidays. Listening to her, I feel like I’m in a small cafe in New York lined with Christmas lights, drinking hot chocolate. Maybe this is because she is often playing in Starbucks… However, her music is also great for dinner parties and small romantic dinners.

My favorite albums of hers are “Feels Like Home” and “Not To Late”. Although, she did win a Grammy in 2003 after producing “Come Away With Me” – which is another great album. Anything by Norah Jones you will love. If you don’t want to purchase her albums just yet, make a play list on Pandora and you will slowly find yourself humming her songs.

2. The Annual Starbucks Christmas CD

Every year, me and my mom make it a point to purchase the Starbucks Christmas CD. From Frank Sinatra to Sarah McLachlan to John Legend to Betty Wright, the Starbucks Christmas CD always has the best mixture of Christmas songs. (Great to play during Christmas dinner).

3. Anything Grey’s

The Grey’s Anatomy Soundtrack always has the best songs (not only for the Holidays). Even if you don’t watch the show, you will still love the music. Featured artists include Rilo Kiley, Tegan and Sara, Inara George, Anya Marina, and many other artists you have never heard of before this album but will soon grow to love.

One of my all-time favorite Christmas songs I found through the Grey’s Anatomy Soundtrack: “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear” by Sixpence None The Richer. (Yes, the same band who sang “Kiss Me” from “She’s All That”).

Evan Rachel Wood and Marilyn Manson (???)

I will never understand them. Not only is Evan Rachel Wood gorgeous but I LOVE her movies… thirteen, across the universe, and now true blood. What does she see in Marilyn Manson? Forget the looks part – that has nothing to do with it. But he’s gruesome ¬†and creepy and disturbed! Everyone knows about his bizarre hobbies. I don’t get it.

Hate them together… like this photo.

Wishing I Was In The UK Right Now…

I just read about this 3 day festival in Sussex celebrating music, film, fashion, art, and design – basically ALL of my favorite things. And Lily Allen will be there! If only I could go…

“Each day bands will take to the various stages, sectioned into decades. So swing by Let it Rock for a 50s-style dance-along, or The Warehouse 80s stage to hear the likes of Danny Rampling spinning their magic on the decks. The main stage will play host to artists like Noisettes and legends Heaven 17, and there’s even a roller disco where you can strap on your skates and whiz about for a bit.

When you’re not dancing your socks off you can take a stroll down the film set Highstreet, and stop off to buy groceries, or pop into Lily Allen and Sarah Owen’s vintage venture Lucy in Disguise, which is launching at the festival. Then, when you’re ready to hit the hay you can choose from vintage caravans, local hotels or – our personal favourite – Glamping. Glam camping, which involves sleeping in Egyptian cotton in wildly elaborate tents sounds right up our street!”

Inside-Out

Will any of my British followers please go and report back to me???

Stripper Shoes

Taylor Momsen wore these clear platform heels with A TIP JAR in the platform at her performance at The Warped Tour. Along with her garters and corset-dress… she was looking a little like she belonged more on stage at a strip club than at a concert.
