Glory

Britney Spears.

A Legend.

Glory is her newest album which was released in August of 2016. It has been over three years since we have gotten anything to make us step away from the Britney Jean era which was a complete nightmare. Make Me…(feat. G-Eazy) was the first single released from the new album and to keep it simple and sweet, it wasn’t the strongest track to choose to promote what Glory and all of its greatness is. She released two other songs to promote the album before it’s release, Clumsy and Do You Wanna Come Over?. While one was a complete club banger the other was a sex anthem designed to what better way to say it…get you laid.

While Britney and her team were making us wait anxiously for the next single, little did the Britney Army know that Tinashe, whom is the biggest Britney fan ever, was recording britney_2the second verse in the song Slumber Party to be featured on a remix. Holy shit I never
thought I would want to be straight again. The remix and music video for Slumber Party is the best work Britney has done in a while. The vocals, choreography and videography is everything a legend’s video should be and more. Don’t let me forget to mention that Britney and Tinashe are giving us major girl-on-girl action. Can someone say boner?

Glory is hands down one of the best Britney albums to ever be released. You can tell that she had spent so much time planning and recording in order to make sure the album was perfection. One thing I love is that she admitted to listening to her fans and making sure that they are getting everything they want in an album from her as well. Glory has a total of 17 tracks, 18 if you include Mood Ring which was produced by DJ Mustard but was only added onto the Japanese Deluxe Version. The only comment I have to make about that is how her team made the shittiest decision not including that song on the American version as well, but we can’t always get what we want. Britney really proved how much she has matured as a woman, vocally and as an entertainer. I couldn’t be more proud.

Where has the Time gone?

Good evening bloggers! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and stuffed more than just a turkey. If not don’t worry, at least the turkey stuffed you. Today marks the 28th day of November which means Cyber Monday is in full effect and bank accounts are slowly declining. One thing that isn’t declining is my love life. Not only was I browsing the internet today, but I was also browsing through my iPhone photo album to find a photo of my boyfriend to post on Instagram. We hit the three months marker today and thats more than Kim Kardashian can say when she married Kris Humphries.

The past couple of months have been phenomenal. I have done so much traveling, job seeking, socializing and shopping that I haven’t had time to sit down and focus on my blog. It is times like this where I wish I would recieve some feedback from some of you to get some inspiration on what I should be posting more of. I figured that I would shut off the Hulu tonight and write a little bit since I haven’t done so in Months. Starting next week I won’t be so go, go, go all the time which will leave me some time to keep you all updated with everything that I have promised.

I want to thank you for continuing to follow my blog despite my lack of posting and if you want me to write about a particular topic please comment below. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday evening and I can’t wait to let you know what I have been doing lately.

Strong Looks Better Naked.

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday thus far. I actually just wanted to log on and write about a book that I just finished reading. I typically don’t find myself reading that often as I don’t have much time, but when I do I find it very therapeutic. The book that I just finished and I would highly recommend is called, “Strong Looks Better Naked” by Khloe Kardashian. Now I know that most people can’t stand the Kardashian family and that others absolutely love them, but who are we to judge? They are human just like the rest of us and they chose to build an empire and brand themselves. Personally I love the Kardashians and my absolute favorite one is Khloe which is why I was so stoked when I found out she was releasing a book.

strong-looks-better-naked-9781942872481_hr“Strong Looks Better Naked” is about her journey in the fitness world, some hardships she has overcome in her life, as well as what pushed her to become the strong minded individual that she is today. The overall concept of this book is an excellent one. The whole thing is filled with such positive energy and motivation material that you truly find yourself questioning whether or not you are doing what you want in life to be happy. I used to be a very negative person and I am constantly reflecting on my body image and saying how I could look better and in the book Khloe herself mentions the following:

“There is no such thing as perfect. Nobody attains perfection. But if you keep working at it, you grow and evolve, and to me that’s sort of the point: to be a better person today than I was yesterday; to become the best possible version of myself.” – Khloe Kardashian

This specific quote hits home because she is absolutely right. Nobody is perfect and nobody ever will be. Of course everyone has their mindset of what perfect is, and who is and who isn’t, but you need to be able to create the perfect you want to be and not let society, love, social media, or any of that destroy you. Life is about bettering yourself and making sure that you are living the way you want to and defining perfect your own way. Within the book she does also talk about some relationship advice and how sometimes the person you love doesn’t love you back and that is okay because someday you will find the one. She is right about that as well. Relationships are tough and you can’t beat yourself over something that didn’t work the way you wanted it to. Be patient.

strong-looks-better-naked-9781942872481.in03Overall, the book is very uplifting. I found myself thinking about how I want to thrive to be a better me. It showed me that no matter what I am creating my own happiness and that I can’t live my life based off of what others think. If someone isn’t happy with what you’re doing then that is the monster they have created within themselves. They are upset that you are living life the way you would like and they aren’t doing the same. Don’t ever let anyone try and take your happiness away. Smile, work hard, thrive to live a healthy lifestyle and be the best version of yourself you can be.

I’m Back!

Wow. It’s been a  couple of months since I posted last. I feel like so much has changed as far as reading my previous posts go. I’ve learned a lot more about myself as well as others and these past couple of months have been such a whirlwind of emotions and activities that I haven’t had the time to just sit down and write.

So here I am on this beautiful Sunday afternoon reflecting on what a wonderful weekend I had. It was filled with tons of positive energy, beautiful humans, and the ever so bright sun giving my skin a little bit of color. I know I haven’t kept you guys updated as far as what has been going on in my life, but I will start by saying that I am no longer with the guy whom was mentioned in some of my previous posts. Him and I unfortunately did not work out, but to this day we still remain friends. I have no negative comments about him as a person and I want everyone to know that break ups don’t always have to end badly. I have definitely had my fair share of nasty break ups, but over the years I have learned not to hold grudges and be angry about a situation that you tried to make work and it ended up plummeting. Life is a crazy thing and we can’t always control what happens.

However, I have accomplished some goals since all of that happened. I got myself a brand new car and I absolutely love it. I have been doing very well at work and I feel like that alone has made me a lot happier because sometimes work is such a drag and majority of people know that, but I am not letting the negative thought of not wanting to go to work affect my mood. I recently went on a date with a guy who I have not seen in five years. Now don’t tell me that doesn’t sound nerve wrecking to you? FIVE YEARS! The only thing I could think of is how to act as normal as possible and not embarrass myself. Long story short, the date was absolutely amazing and he made me feel so comfortable that the nerves disappeared. If you guys could see how perfect this man is you would die. He has the looks, the brains, the personality, the romance, the everything. UGH!

Everything in my life right now is completely perfect. I have so much positive energy surrounding me, I have a wonderful set of friends who I can rely on to do any type of fun activity with me, I have an amazing family who love and supports me, I have been spending less time on social media and engaging more in conversations and real life time rather than what was posted 20 minutes ago. I feel like the start of 2016 was a bit chaotic and a complete roller-coaster, but I wouldn’t go back and redo any of it. Why you may ask? Well because I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for what happened in the past.

With that being said I promise to start posting more and not leave you guys hanging for months on end. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a great Sunday! 🙂

The definition of love

When you think about the word love what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Is it a family member? Is it someone you are dating? Is it a pet? Is it a hobby? What is it? That is something I find so interesting about the word love, that no matter what it is that comes to your mind everyone has that one thing that is their own definition of love. Now when I think about the word love I think of a number of things, but most importantly I think about it in the way that is romance. I can not begin to explain how much I adore all things romance. I am basically a teenage girl trapped inside of a 6’1 male body. You know how women just sit there and cry while shoving their faces with a carton of ice cream while Nicholas Sparks tears their hearts apart, well that is me, but as a gay man.

However, I am not sad. I am so wrapped up with love lately that I have nothing to be upset about. I wake up everyday knowing that I love myself, I love my boyfriend, I love my family, I love my friends, I love everything I do in life and that is what truly makes the start of my day so amazing. Love is such a strong feeling and I wish it upon everyone. I know that it can get tough at times and you truly believe that nobody will ever love you or that you may never find true love, but this isn’t a fairy tale. Love isn’t like the movies at all. I have definitely been around the block and back when it comes to my fair share of relationships and let me tell you, they are tougher than anything I have ever experienced. Relationships aren’t just about your happiness as an individual, they are also about your partners happiness. Most people can be very selfish in a relationship and I can tell you that from experience. I have been told on numerous occasions that I am selfish and that is something I had to learn to fix about myself. Now being in a relationship doesn’t mean you have to change yourself into another human being, but it does mean that you have to adjust your lifestyle to mold with your partners. If you are used to going out every night and you get yourself involved with someone who doesn’t do that it may be a tough balance at first, but maybe you’ll learn that you don’t have to go out to have fun. Maybe you will learn that staying in and cooking dinner with that someone or hosting a movie night with some friends may be a better option for the both of you.

I can sit here and try to say that I wish I had love like they have in the movies, but like I mentioned before, that isn’t reality. With happiness comes negativity and that is something everyone who has ever experienced love has felt. You can’t go every day with the constant state of happiness because we are humans and we often make mistakes, we get jealous, we like to prove we are right, we like attention, and we like to relieve stress. Don’t ever let the negativity outweigh the happiness because at the end of the day you can always fix negativity, but you can never make up happiness. Especially if it is with someone you want to create happy memories with.

There comes a point in your life where you’ll realize that dating can be completely tiring and the constant stage of wanting someone else can be overwhelming but I promise that if you just take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy what life is bringing you that love will come. Whether that form of love be a hobby, taking care of a pet, spending time with family and friends, or simply just looking at yourself in the mirror, I promise it will come. Now I am not sitting here saying that I am some sort of love guru and that everything I say is correct, but from personal experience I know that the love I am receiving and the love I have to give I got from everything I just told you. I have goals set for myself and I know exactly what I want in life and I expect you to do the same. Create your own definition of love.

H&M x Coachella

Coachella season is here and everyone knows what that means…festival looks. Over the weekend I bought two new things to add to my wardrobe. The first thing I bought is definitely something that can be worn at Coachella considering it came from the H&M x Coachella Collaboration. Now I have been searching for almost a year and a half for the perfect pair of overalls but nothing seemed to come available that I honestly liked nor needed. I was out shopping around one day and I had seen a pair of overalls for guys that caught my attention. For some reason I didn’t try them on and two weeks later I found myself wondering where I had saw them. While I was out and about shopping because that is all my life consists of, a worker at H&M informed me that they would be getting overalls in for their Coachella line and that they would be light wash, distressed, and shorts.

I orgasmed.

I waited around for two weeks like the worker said and once the line was released I logged onto H&M’s website only to find that there was no overalls to be found. I called customer service and they informed me that they had some but for some reason they didn’t advertise them. I called around to different H&M’s in my area and only one store had a pair left and they were a size Large. Now I don’t work well with Large, but I needed them. As I arrived to the store I tried the pair of overalls on and they were too big. I decided to walk around the store and glance at the other Coachella stuff they had created and as I walked past a mannequin I noticed that it had a pair of the overalls on. I looked at the size anOverallsd guess what? IT WAS A MEDIUM! THE LAST MEDIUM! Now I have worked retail so I know how much the fucking workers hate taking things off the mannequin’s, but guess what, I don’t give a fuck. I purchased the overalls and look at how beautiful they are. Majority of you are probably thinking, “Why would you wear overalls? This isn’t the 90’s.” Well bitches, overalls are in style. Especially for festivals. Deciding what to wear with these can be a bit of a challenge so let me give you an idea. These overalls can be worn with ANY color of shirt you choose to wear them with. I chose black because I have no soul and also because black makes you look skinny. I then decided to wrap a black and red flannel around my waist. When wearing these make sure that you don’t wear both the straps in front buttoned as you may look like a complete toddler. You want to make sure you have one unbuttoned. When it came time to pick out shoes to go with this ensemble I decided to go with black vans as it matched the shirt and the flannel. I know not everyone is going to be wanting to rock overalls so that is why I decided to pick up a second item over the weekend.

Drum roll please……hmprod

White skinny jeans! Everyone who knows me knows that I can not wear white so deciding to buy these jeans were such a struggle. The thing about white skinny jeans that scares me is that I may sit in something or spill something on myself. Now luckily I am not a lady and I don’t have to worry about lady nature happening because lord knows that would be a nightmare. With that being said, lets discuss how you could style these. Personally I would rock these with a light baby blue turtle neck sweater with some baby blue vans or maybe even white vans. Another way I would style these pants is with a black band like t-shirt and maybe some combat boots and a flannel. White pants are so versatile when it comes to either being grunge, preppy, hipster, beachy, whatever the style and that is something that made me really want to buy them. I know that there is a risk of sitting in bubblegum or chocolate ice cream or simply dropping honey mustard on myself while shoving chicken nuggets in my mouth, but I personally believe that anyone and everyone should own a pair of white pants. If you don’t own a pair, go purchase some!

Both of these products could easily be worn out to a number of events. If you want to know where I purchased both items well that is easy, H&M! Now I wasn’t entirely impressed with their collaboration with Coachella but hey, there is always next year.

I truly wish that I was attending Coachella this year as I love everything about festivals, but unfortunately I am not. However, I will be doing a review after Coachella to give you a guys an update on what I thought of this years fashion choices at the festival.

Stay tuned!

 

The Joyride World Tour

All Hands On Deck? More like all hands snatched my weave. Thursday night I was lucky enough to attend the “Joyride World Tour.” Not only was I front row, but I also met the star herself, Tinashe. Now I have NEVER seen a performance like I did on Thursday night. The lights, the smoke, the screaming, the vocals, the dancing, the everything was fucking outstanding. I arrived at the Crystal Ballroom and waited in line for what seemed like days, but in reality it was only hours. As I got let in I was so nervous because I mean it isn’t everyday that you just get to meet a celebrity and take a picture with them. I walked up to the third floor where I got led to a back room where Tinashe was waiting ever so gracefully. My first reaction was, “Wow! She is so much shorter than I imagined.” When it was finally my turn to take a picture with her I couldn’t control myself. She gave me hug and asked me how I was doing, and we posed. She thanked me for coming to the show and said that she hopes I enjoy it. Tinashe 4.jpgNow everyone’s first instinct when taking a photo is to see how they look. Well as I glanced at the photo of Tinashe and I, I couldn’t help but notice how flawless she is compared to me. Now I wasn’t too happy with my photo at first because I am just very critical about myself, but now I love it. After the meet and greet I stood back in line to wait for the doors to open and the show to start. My boyfriend, our friend Brittany and I ran up to stage where we stood front and center waiting for something so good that we didn’t even know was going to happen to happen. Blackbear was the opening act and to be honest I had no fucking idea who he even was. As he sang some of the songs I realized that he actually has some talent and his sound is something that I could see myself listening to. Once Blackbear finished they had a set change and thats when it happened.

THE LIGHTS WENT OUT AND ON CAME A SCREEN!

The intro to the concert was a short film which featured Tinashe, the desert, a motorcycle and a warning mentioning that once the Joyride starts there is no going back.

Ride of Your Life was the opening song and oh my God was I blown away. I have never seen a performer dance and sing at the same time and not sound out of breath. Like I mentioned before, the visuals, the dancing, the vocals, the everything was amazing. One awesome thing I enjoyed about this concert was that not only was she interactive with her fans and smiling at them as they sang the words, but her back up dancers also were very interactive as well. I met eye contact and smiled back and forth with Tinashe and her back up dancers on numerous occasions and that made the concert feel that much more special. I felt as if I was getting my own personal show. Tinashe performed some of her old stuff as well as some new stuff that has yet to be released. Every single outfit change was better than the first and I am pretty sure I left that concert no longer a gay man. Just kidding, I love dick too much.

 

I want to thank my boyfriend for surprising with these tickets for my birthday and I also want to thank him for going with me even though the ONLY song he knew was “2 On.”

I highly recommend attending the Joyride World Tour if you have a chance and if you already missed her being in a city near you, well you definitely missed out.

xoxo.
