Summer is over, we are either back to school or to work, which could have sounded boring IF i hadn’t made this little selection of the fall 2013 must-have for you guys!
1. Drizzy Mood
I couldn’t make this post without mentioning how exiting i am for the releaseof Drake’s new album “Nothing was the same”, not that is has to do with the fact i saw him 3 days ago leaving Lavo’s restaurant (OMG OMG). The album is expected for September 24th but trust me for the braves one, you can already find most of the songs online..
View album here
2. Fancy phone
Of course the iPhone 5c is one of the MUST of the fall. Part of the Apple team or not, fingerprint fan or not, you have to admit how beautiful are the six new colors, especially this electric yellow. Designed cases are also available. For the impatient (and/or lazy people), you can already pre-order online.
3. Have a drink or three
So I just discovered this bar called “Off the Wagon” a week ago in the West Village and I hardly recommend it. The cold is back in the city, you’ll definitely need one of the “buy one get one free” shot or cocktail of this place. The plus: there are Beer pong tables !
4. Sexy makeup
How could i not talk about the new Mac cosmetics collaboration with the beautiful Rihanna: “Riri hearts Mac”. 31 stock keeping units will be available online when you can already buy the Riri lipstick! Go girlllls!
“Christmas Time Is In The Air Again” Single (Mariah Carey)
Looks like I’ve got my question answered by holiday music extraordinaire Mariah Carey. YES!!! We can now play Christmas music FINALLY! Thanksgiving is over and Mariah is here to assure us that “Christmas Time Is In The Air Again“, which just so happens to be a single off her Merry Christmas II You (2010) album. I personally think Mariah Carey is the best of the best when it comes to Christmas music; her songs are so giftedly spiritual and there isn’t one of her Christmas songs that you will not fall in love with. My favorite Christmas song of Mariah’s is the signature holiday tune that’s always the number one record on the holiday charts “All I Want For Christmas Is You” off of her first Christmas album Merry Christmas (1994).
Let’s Take A Flashback From Her Very First Christmas Music Video To Her Present On; (Merry Christmas To Merry Christmas II You).
“All I Want For Christmas Is You“
“When Christmas Comes Feat. John Legend“
I mean how ICONIC is Mariah Carey?!!!

Every year during the holiday season, I always force one question upon myself which makes it very intricate for me to answer. I love music to the death of me, but it just so happens vocally I sound so beautiful when I sing Christmas/Traditional songs; I guess it’s because I’m obsessed with the holiday season and anticipate Christmas like a pregnant woman in labor waiting for her child to be born. Okay guys and girls … I LOVE CHRISTMAS !!!!
But the one question I seem to ask myself is WHEN CAN I START PLAYING CHRISTMAS MUSIC? I never ask other people because they’re really not into the whole holiday music as much as I am so I hardly get answers. I’m guessing a person genuinely into music would just tell me, “you can listen to holiday music anytime of the year”. That’s not the correct answer I want to hear though, I’m a bit anal and OCD when it comes to holiday music, I believe holiday music should be played when the holiday season is near and not a day after Christmas; I swear I don’t know where I come up with these rules.
I’m having a hard time writing this post because I want to actually blast Christmas music right now, but Thanksgiving hasn’t hit the corner yet. I was thinking maybe the day after Thanksgiving or December 1st. I also don’t want to start putting the holiday jams on my iPod and jam when i’m out and about, because I don’t want to be the only person in the world blasting Christmas music so early. I’m going off in a rant here, BUT….
When do you think is a good time Christmas music should start to play?
