Jarryd James – Do You Remember

I am so proud and overwhelmed to hear this breakout single. Please give this a listen. Smashing video as well.

Best song of 2015 thus far. So excited to see where he goes!



It’s Nov. 6th, which means my favourite time of year is fast-approaching. With that said, I know it’s important to be inclusive. Who am I to assume everyone celebrates my favourite holiday as religiously as I do? Regardless, I can’t help but count down to………..NOV. 15th: the first Love Actually viewing of the year!! 

**FAVE SCENE** #younginterraciallove #biased

Every Nov. 15th,  I begin regularly watching Love Actually to ring in the festive season. This means from Nov. 15th onwards, I watch the film (bi?) weekly until Christmas. It’s crucial to begin this marathon in mid-November lest one suffer Hugh Grant/Colin Firth-fatigue before Christmas Eve (AS IF). Also, can we talk about how Thomas Sangster aka Jojen Reed from Game of Thrones still looks EXACTLY THE SAME? Christmas Eve is the pinnacle of the W network’s Love Actually showings. I always know I can count on them. It is also the day when other people are most likely to want to watch the film with me, validating its essential place in our lives.

In anticipation of this event, I have loaded up on rhubarb chai and will be listening to this mashup, which I think you should all check out:




I Hope You Dance

This post is half a joke and half a legit revelation. After a less-than-kind weekend/start to the week, i found myself cruising the interwebz and landing on this gem:

This video is awful. The song is also irritatingly repetitive. However, on closer listen, and trust me it shocked me too, you will note that Lee Ann is kind of an inspirational life coach.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance

Never settle for the path of least resistance

Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but they’re worth takin’

AND the best line: And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance…I HOPE YOU DANCE!

Yes, this is horribly cheesy and off-putting, but goddammit I need some real sap to get through this week.


This lovely specimen of a grade 7 Neha and myself comes to you courtesy of my living room in Zimbabwe circa 2002, where I know we were dancin’ up a storm. Be still my <3.
