Things to Look Forward too!

Standard

Not knowing exactly how something is going to work out is scary, liberating, exciting and truly tests the importance of trust.  “Trusting” that everything WILL work out. This Unite for Green project is truly testing my faith.  I don’t have all or any of the answers. However, I do know what can be accomplished if people truly believe in something and put their heads together.  There’s no time better than the present to encourage people to do something great for the earth.  I’m certainly not an environmental guru by any means – but I’m taking the time to learn.

I’m working with a great group of kids at UCLA.  This last week, we met with the sustainability coordinator of UCLA; as well as an amazing company titled Harmony Sounds.  Harmony Sounds may become involved with initiative in terms of providing the technical support for this (possibly) massive initiative.  We are making lots of traction and more importantly, creating something special out of absolutely NOTHING.  Stay Tuned.

The students are officially launching a UNITE FOR GREEN student organization at UCLA that will be spearheading this first initiative.   Pretty exciting!

The Honey Collective is producing a series of experiences for our Los Angeles following.  Recently, HC launched Honey Live at Angels in Santa Monica.  Honey Live featured the talents of Chico and Kristinia DeBarge, Teddy Riley and Guy.  It was absolutely amazing. Honey Live was sponsored by Hennessy & Vibe Magazine – it was incredible.  Honey Live is currently being scheduled for next month and it’s going to be a treat for everyone!

We are currently in the final wave of our Summer time Rooftop parties at the JW.  We’ve had a great run at the JW.  It’s been wonderful to have been able to provide this experience for our Honey patrons.  The talents of Dj Eque, Dj D Nice and Anthony Valadez have blessed the turntables.  Spinderella, Talib Kweli, Hi-Tek Dj Scratch and Mtv’s Butta have also made appearances at Honey this Summer.  It’s been a good time had by all.

We are currently preparing for New Years 2010.  It’s going to be a hit so save the date and your funds so you can join in the festivities we are preparing as we bring in the New Year!

The Honey Collective website is done!  Finished!  … and SCENE.  I cannot wait to launch!  We should be launching this bad boy shortly!   Until next update!

I had way too much fun this weekend. Much props to Vikter Duplaix for hosting Kiss N’ Grind featuring the amazing talents of Dj Questlove and Peanut Butter Wolf.  I haven’t had that much fun in ages!  I had the chance to see so many people from so many different industries under one roof sweatin’ and dancing!  Good times were had by all this weekend. I think I’m getting old!  I’m still recovering from Friday night!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Happy Monday lovelies!!!

CHECK IN WITH YOURSELF –

Standard

Life is  roller coaster – and at times I find myself completely on track and other times – I wonder “how the hell did I get here?” I’ve been listening to my intuition and I’ve been doing what’s good for MY LIFE first.  I have patterns that like to follow me around this road we call “life.”  They can be tricky!  Patterns have disguises, they’re comfortable, they like to always show up at all the wrong times and if your not observant and don’t take action – they will always have a hand in the results you experience.

Love your life and love yourself enough to make the right choices.  I’ve never realized until now – that the choices I make not only effect me but effect all the people in my life who care about me as well. They in turn effect the students who work with me and the people and business associates I work around.   Loving myself has entailed taking a step back and considering what’s good for me FIRST. In the past, I’ve ALWAYS thought about how other people feel FIRST, but if I’m not good – (inside) then it domino’s and the rest of this story is history.

I have a lot going on in my life in the next year.  I HAVE to be at my very best inside – because god’s put A LOT of opportunity in m lap and I want to show up!  Distractions be gone — because I feel so deeply what my calling inside is – and I can’t wait to see how all of this is going to manifest.   Recently, I produced Styles Upon Styles Los Angeles – next stop is New York and Chicago.  The event was amazing! Shortly afterwards, HONEY LIVE hit LA for a 3rd time and music royalty blessed our night:   Stevie Wonder and Ricky Bell from New Edition.

Last week was awesome!  Just wanted to send out a big thank you to ALL who supported Styles Upon Styles LA and Honey Live!

Styles Upon Styles LA was awesome.  Bouncing Cats is an amazing documentary – for those who missed it – we hope to create another opportunity for you all to see it!

Good Times …

Standard

I’ve been having so much damn fun lately!  I’ve re – connected with old friends and music scenes in Los Angeles that I’ve missed dearly.  Although I throw high end events and parties – I’m really a Venice Beach girl at heart!  If I could be near water EVERYDAY i would.  I love flip flops, chill music, good people, relaxed & chill environments and cocktails!  I sat at a park last week and read a book for hours on end – when do I ever get a chance to do that?
I attended my friends screening of  Food Network’s show titled “Private Chefs of Beverly Hills.” Love to Chef Brian and all the amazing people I met that evening.  I learned to Lindy Hop – thanks to Nick.  Met some new friends: David, Jeff and Nicole.  Good time is an understatement – truly.

I had a chance to go watch my girl Feyla rip it at World of Dance and I reunited with so many of the old hommies!  It was a reunion. Straight up.  Shouts to Richie, Myron, Tif Bong, Preal, Citrus, Eddie, Chris, Wes, Marvin and everyone else who was supporting the dance scene.  Big shouts to Bonita, Feyla, Cricket and Peppa for lightin’ up the circle!  I went from World of Dance to Verdugo – a chill lounge spot in Pasadena/Burbank area where my hommie Miguel Escobedo was reppin’ Papalotes!  The food was off the hook as usual! Again, more good people – delicious food – dope music and shouts to Rhettmatic, Sloepoke, J Rocc, Rona, Miguel and all the good people who were enjoying themselves at Verdugo.  I had a great flippin’ time!

The next day (Sunday) I strolled out to Little Temple to support Sloepoke’s night and again! … REUNION!  Dj Mr. E was on the 1’s and 2’s and I was in good company the entire evening.  Love to Kg Super Star, Danny, J Rocc, Cameron, Feyla, Alejandro, Gene and the list goes on.

Yoga – this week was absolutely what I needed – thank you god!  My brother had his first child.  BTW he’s the cutest baby ever. Aside from my nieces who are also the cutest babies ever.  Yeah – so there are 3 “cutest babies ever.” 😀

I’m in the bay with the fam and spent time with my girls last night: Tiersa, Trey and Tif.  Hilarious – is the adjective I would use to describe that conversation. Wait … 2 more words – Casadores and pineapple. Yeap – that’s pretty accurate.  My side hurt when I was leaving.  I have no idea how I woke up with no hangover – wait I know – It’s called “tolerance.” Does that mean I drink too much?  Who knows!

I’m looking forward to partying and catching up with folks while I’m out here.  My hommie Franboogie throws some dope events in SF.  Going to head to an event on Friday evening @ Mighty.  Definitely going to hit up the Parish in Oakland.  Without a doubt I will paying a visit to Papalotes!  TRUST!  Looking forward to this week. Gonna hit the ground running!   Work and play / work and play!  As it should be … until next time!

STYLES UPON STYLES — FLIPPIN’ AMAZING!

Standard

Wow, what a difference one month makes.  I have a good reason for not writing for the past 30 days.  Things have been crazy and wonderful all at the same time.  In the last 30 days, Styles Upon Styles came to life and it was an incredible event!

First things first – Styles Upon Styles San Francisco went above and beyond my expectations.    The event was truly spectacular – We reached capacity, the music was ridiculous, the performances were amazing beyond words and the dance community TRULY came out to support Crazy Legs and One Cypher and it’s relaunch.
Much love to some new friends I’ve met along this special journey Dj Mr. E, Sean G & Ezra and Miles of 330 Ritch – it was truly a PERFECT storm.
Styles upon Styles was blessed by the works of Jonas Lynch who did a live performance painting of Crazy Legs.  Philtered Soul did the damn thing alongside all female dance crew the Syrenz!  The screening of Red Bull “Bouncing Cats” was unforgettable and not to be missed when Styles Upon Styles comes to Los Angeles on May 20, 2010!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Special Shout out to PAPALOTES in FRISCO!  Thank you Miguel for all the hospitality!  EVERYONE that really knows me – knows I LOVE TO EAT!   This place is the business!
