Here it is again, the dynamic duo Johnny Platinum Plus (The Host with the Most) and DJ AyCE International are once again bringing us fire from Brooklyn, Nyc. This time its the new Volume Sweet 16, and trust me its amazing. I was blessed to be the first one to get my hands on this edition and I have had it on repeat ever since. Let me just state that JOHNNY PlATINUM PLUS and my favorite Dj AyCE International, always kill it every single time. This time, as always, it is awesome in English and Spanish you’ll love what this dynamic duo has in store for you?

For starters, that intro with Dave Chapelle is brilliant and I couldn’t be more satisfied with this amazing first impression. There is something for everyone to enjoy here and if you are a fave of diverse sound in music, there’s a plethora for your listening enjoyment. There’s the fresh sound of hip hop, a little soul, Reggaeton, and a few other diverse beats/sound/flavors to keep you entertained for hours on end. The music flows beautifully and the MC’s voices can be heard clearly, unlike other mixtapes that I’ve listened to that are extremely hard to understand. This one meshes well with the beats, voices (which are amazing) and the transition from one artist to another is simply smooth and so easy. In this edition, there is a mix of fresh sounds from various eras of the music industry that make you want to get up, dance, or sing – almost like if the artists are there right in front of you which is awesome. Johnny Platinum Plus is definitely killin it in the Underground music industry and DJ AyCE International is always making us all wanna dance when he’s spitting out fire on them 1’s and 2’s. On the English version you will hear the sounds of Wutang (legendary), Mobb Deep, Snoop Dogg, KRS1 (for those that grew up in the amazing 80’s), Jay-Z and, Jay Electronica and Royce Da 5’9. These unsigned MC’s on this project are also fire. It includes Zizzo from Staten Island, Ike Ruffin from Long island, Big Will from St Louis, SB from Chi-Town, Baller Brown, Trble, and The Real Nomaad from the Boogie Down bronx.

I love these legendary Rockstar Stickers…If I’m not mistaken – I believe they aren’t available anymore..huge collectors items!  They come with every mixtape purchase!

Pure Fire…get it before its gone!!

My final thoughts: Diverse Beats and Diverse MC’s = Diverse Sound which in turn = Fabulousness…simply put – you need this mixtape in your collection! If you’re looking for music thats different from all the garbage out there – go and check this mixtape out. The artistry here is undeniably dope and highly recommended by myself and others who have heard of this duo/trios amazing other mixtapes that have been released in the past. Johnny Platinum Plus and DJ AyCE International together have always been a powerhouse of dope beats and sounds, now with addition of DJ TYONE there’s an addition of hip hop flavor.. You need to really sit back and listen to the sounds, beats, and put it on repeat so you can appreciate what the artists, sounds, and the whole mixtape itself is all about. These three amazing artists are phenomenal together and if you mix in a few other heavy hitters in the MC game then you will have a blast listening to it and sharing it…its just that good! Don’t take my word for it…do yourself the favor!

Go check it out..today, ahora, pronto, rapido — ehhh, you know what I mean LOL!

THE JOHN ASHFORD TRUNK SHOW

15443150_10154281733264075_8922832747485162394_o

A few days ago, I struck up a conversation with a friend and the subject of my fashion experiences came up. While I reminisced about my invites to various exclusive shows I mentioned that I had been invited to a Trunk Show that would be taking place in a few days. She didn’t know what a trunk show was so I proceeded to inform her of what it was about and how fun they are. She was very excited and wanted to know when the next one would be happening. I informed her that she would personally be invited to the next show and we would go together!

Now I am assuming that most of my followers who read my blog would know the fashion terminology but for those that don’t, I will tell you what a trunk show is and no it isn’t a show that sells or shows off trunks for you to buy LOL. Heres the definition of trunk show: a sales event for showing merchandise to staff and select customers. That, my readers was exactly what it was and more…

 Last week, Shoe designer John Ashford called me with some amazing news – he was having his private trunk show event in Clinton Hills Brooklyn, Ny and I had first dibs as blogger/photographer for that day! You can imagine how excited I was and I didn’t hesitate to accept his invitation. My excitement for the rest of the week till then as you can imagine was through the roof. Being a fashion blogger does have its perks and I’m so glad I could experience it and share this with my readers! Take peek at the pictures from the Authentic by John Ashford’s private trunk show sponsored by Barefoot Wines! Oh and I purchased a few pairs of amazing shoes of course!

MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK – HERE I COME!

Jay Godfrey - Presentation - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014

Omg, omg, omg…my dream has come true after so many years of wishing, talking, and dreaming about it. The day has finally come! I have finally been invited to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. I am so happy, excited, well you get the picture LOL!

Yesterday I was out and about doing errands (hence the late post, my apologies) and I always check my emails and to my surprise I got an email invitation to Jay Godfrey’s fashion show at the Hudson Hotel. I couldn’t believe it, I even dropped what I was doing to check and recheck the email just to make sure it wasn’t a spoof or spam. But Oh No it was a real invite with RSVP and everything. So of course, I am going and I’m gonna feel like this for a few days until then. So let me tell you a little about this awesome designer, Jay Godfrey!

Jay Godfrey is a New York based designer who realized he wanted to become a designer while working at Hugo Boss. He studied finance at Montreals McGill University in order to have a good solid background in business and accounting. When he graduated he headed to Wall Street where he worked at Citicorp. While working there, his determination to create a collection of his own led him to attend Parsons School of Design. There he interned with Oscar de la Renta where he perfected his style and design technique. This experience helped him figure out who the “Jay Godfrey” woman was.

Having been in the business a few years, Godfrey has thus created quite a celebrity following. Some of the celebrities that have worn his designs include Leighton Meester, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Eva Mendez, Jennifer Lopez, Angie Harmon, Emma Stone, Eva Langoria and Petra Nemcova. He has also been featuring in some of the most amazing publications such as WWD, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and the New York Post.

I am so excited and can’t tell you how much. I know his show will be fantastic! I have included some pictures of his past designs so that you, my readers, can get acquainted with this fabulous designer.

cvdWhat beautiful designs, I love it!

I love Jay Godfrey’s designs, they’re made for the modern woman that loves lots of vibrant color and isn’t worried about what others may think of their style. As for me I am totally a Jay Godfrey follower and I totally can see myself in his designs in the future. I wish this amazing designer much successs – you truly deserve it! Happy Shopping Everyone!
