Music Monday

April 17, 2017

Filed Under : Music

Happy Monday folks! I’m back after a long hiatus with a new installment of #MusicMonday! Well, not really a long hiatus, but I haven’t shared a new playlist in a while. Regardless, today’s post is dedicated to all those retail stores that play dope music. Like every other twenty something year old, I worked in retail as well. During those beloved four hour shifts, listening to music was a great pass time. Five or six years later, I still find myself loving those electro-pop sounding tunes. With all that being said, check out this updated retail shopping playlist below:

  1. “Falling Autumn,” alayna
  2. “Bad Girlz,” Ebhoni
  3. “Good Times,” Aaron Childs
  4. “Spun,” Angie
  5. “Finders Keepers,” Mabel
  6. “Simple,” Joe Hertz
  7. “Living Simple,” Big Sean
  8. “Redbone,” Childish Gambino
  9. “Rockets (feat. Moe Moks),” LION BABE
  10. “Lady Villain,” Daye Jack

What I’m Wearing
Denim Shirt: GAP | Jeans: GAP | Sneakers: Converse

Earlier this year, GAP launched their first-ever 90’s Archive Re-Issue Collection, featuring items from your favorite 90’s inspired trends. When you get a chance, check out the full collection here. Of course, I took it upon myself to join in on all the 90’s fun with this fully thrifted outfit. As you can see, the denim shirt and jeans are a tad over-sized, perfect for that old school GAP look. Adding to this nostalgic theme, I threw on my favorite, white Chuck Taylor sneakers. So, how do you feel about this particular look? Feel free to share in the comments section below.

Happy Easter,

WIWT: Leather Pants

What I’m Wearing
Pants: ASOS | Jacket: ASOS |Tee: H&M | Sneakers: Adidas

Move over ladies, men can rock a pair of leather trousers too! Pair your favorite leather pants with a ribbed sweater or graphic tee and you are sure to feel like a celebrity. Today, I decided to step out in these black, leather pants from ASOS. With a slim fit, these pants look great with a longline jacket and shirt, as shown above. The black bomber jacket adds a nice touch to the pants, since there are in the same color family. The Micky Mouse print tee from H&M adds a little character to the look. To finish, I decided to stick with this urban inspired look with these high top Adidas sneakers.  So, how do you feel about this look? Share in the comments section below!

Big Brother Canada 5: Week Four

A wrinkle in time wreaked pure mayhem aboard the BBCAN Odyssey. After a surprising turn of events, fan favorite, Gary, was sent packing from the BBCAN Odyssey during the Backwards Week twist. Backwards Week? Yes, Backwards week! In this unusual twist, the house schedule was reversed, starting with the nomination ceremony. By the end of the week, the HOH cast the sole vote to evict during the live eviction.” Interesting, right? Unfortunately, this twist did not work in Gary’s favor, as he was the fourth person evicted from the BBCAN Odyssey. For more information, check out the full story below.

Backwards Week Introduction

Big Brother slammed the Odyssey in reverse by introducing the Backwards Week twist to the houseguests. One by one, each houseguest was called to the bridge for a surprise nomination vote. Arisa revealed that the two houseguests with the most votes would be nominated for the week.


Shortly after the surprise, Arisa revealed the results. With six and seven votes respectively, Gary and Dre were nominated. On the grand scheme of things, the Dream Team consisting of Bruno, Demetres, Ika, Kevin, Neda, and Sindy were planning to target Gary and Dre post Cassandra’s eviction anyway. Obviously, Gary was targeted for his strong social game and season one reputation, and Dre for her strong allegiance to the French Connection. So, it makes since as to why they were nominated in the first place.

Power of Veto Competition

Dre, Gary, Emily, Kevin, Neda, and William were selected to participate in the “Highway to Spell Power” power of veto competition. Round after round, the houseguests will race to spell a word in a specific amount of time and length. In the final round, the remaining houseguests must use their remaining letters to spell the longest word. The houseguest that spells the longest final word wins the Power of Veto. As Emily, Dre, and Gary were eliminated early, Neda, Kevin, and William went head to head in the final round. With the length of eight letters, Neda won the POV with the word “underlit.”

Power of Veto Ceremony

As we already know, Dre and Gary are up for eviction, and Neda has the power to save one of them for eviction. Rather than getting more blood on her hands, Neda decided keep the nominations the same by not using the power of veto.

To close out the week, the houseguests, minus Dre and Gary, participated in the “Heavy Rotation” HoH challenge. For this challenge, each houseguest will lay on a spinning dome, while holding onto a metal handle above their hands. The last houseguest remaining on the dome will become the new HoH, holding the sole vote for eviction this week. Once the dome began spinning, the houseguests started to drop like flies, leaving Demetres and Emily to go head to head for the title. After striking a deal, Emily let go of her handle, crowning Demetres as the new winner.

The Final Attempt

Remember, the eviction this week is very different than usual. The HoH had the sole vote to evict, rather than the entire house. Since Demetres has the power this week, Gary is trying to work his magic. Little does he know that the queen B herself, Neda, has the Dream Team wrapped around her little finger. Ika, one of Gary’s closest allies, can’t even keep him safe. While Gary continues to campaign to stay, Dre is taking a more passive approach by keeping a low profile.

Ultimately, Demetres stayed true to his alliance, and sent Gary out the door with the deciding vote. Still smiling, Gary departed from the BBCAN Odyssey with his head held high.

Shortly after Gary’s eviction, the houseguests gathered in the backyard to compete in the next Head of Household competition entitled, “Oh Snap.” In this competition, the participating houseguests were asked a series of questions (Based on previously recorded video messages from evicted players). Every incorrect answer results in an elimination. William became the last houseguest standing, after winning the tie breaker round against Bruno, Dillon, Emily, Jackie, and Sindy.

William’s HoH win is a huge accomplishment for the French Connection. I’m not sure who William plans to target, but I can see Bruno, Jackie, Dillon, and Emily on the chopping block. I’m very excited to see how next week turns out.
