Fashion Forecast 2016

Seeing lots of stripes, turquoise, yellows and whispy florals. The 90s looks are still going strong with accessories like chokers, mini backpacks, chunky heels and ruffled socks are making an appearance believe it or not! 👀 There's going to be much emphasis on stripes and turquoise, possibly well into the summer. Prepare to see it on many essentials, shoes, accents... the works. Once we transition to Fall/Winter, I foresee soft pink and icey blues with some brown. We saw lots of texture and angles last year in hair, since lips have gone matted, perhaps hair will become more heavy and blunt! Going to keep this one short and sweet. Stay linked for updates.

New Dance Hits- Spring 2014

The nostalgia just hit me. So many of these new tracks coming out are oozing that good old 90’s dance/house flavor. We like to complain sometimes when too many things from the past get recycled. However, if you are a dance music fan and from the 90’s, these tracks right here will make you wiggle right in your seat.

"Hideaway" by Kiesza

This track is a blast from the past. The vocals and that dance groove are a 90’s throwback but fits right into today. Canadian born Navy girl, now representing Brooklyn, is laying down some clean, strong and authentic notes. Don't believe me? Check out the live performance right here.

"My Love" by Route 94 Feat. Jess Glynne 

It does not always take many lyrics to create a good song. Back in the day, many of the first original house/dance songs were complied of a few catchy ad-libs and/or just the right phrase to get you into the zone. The video is quite 'trippy' and steamy, so a fair warning to sensitive and touchy out there. Nevertheless the video is all in infrared and visually intriguing. If you don't mind a little sexuality then check out here.  

 "Sleepless" (Radio Edit) but Cazzette-
The name says it all. This one is more ‘nu’ than ‘ol skool, a perfect mix of the modern and the old. As soon as the beat picked up into it's climax it took me back. Reminded me of Daft Punk, but still distinct in their own way.

Hope you enjoy these fresh tunes. If so, please share and comment. Tweet me and Like my page if you feel my flow.

Jibaritos' Restaurant, Puerto Rican and International Cuisine

Jibaritos' is located in Bedford, TX in the Mid Cities area. Delicious Puerto Rican #food. Generously priced and wonderful service. It has a nice lounge type of atmosphere and it's very chic. When it come to Latin Caribbean food, I am very picky with beans and this place nailed it; very close to home flavors. I had the 'arroz con pollo' (chicken and rice) and it was 'delicioso'! Next time however, I will have the Jibarito sandwich with 'mamposteao' (red beans and rice). I was able to have a small taste and it was 'of the chain' que rico! The bill was more than reasonable and they offer a #military discounts.

iPhone vs. Andriod

You are ready for an upgrade. You walk into the mobile store and your eyes are wandering around on all the gadget candy available to you. After playing around with a few devices it all boils down to either the iPhone or Android. Both of them feel so right in your hands and you cannot decide which one will come home with you. Perhaps I can assist with this vital decision you are about to make. A good question to ask yourself is: “What do you need this device to do?” Answering that question for you would be difficult, but we can look at some of the personality traits of these devices. This applies to tablets as well.

The iPhone is the popular kid in school. It is in shape; it has the hottest possible shell that comes in many colors and sizes. Choose the size wisely because once you buy it, you cannot increase the capacity. It is quite user friendly therefore it can get along with almost anyone. However, it won’t just hand you all the goods for free. There are many free apps in the app store, but you are going to have to pay for most of the tops ones. It can do almost anything you want, but for a price. Mobile browsing is not it’s strongest feature, but if you are not planning to surf the Internet too much then this won’t be a big issue. Not bad for a smart jock, but perhaps it won’t fulfill your nerdy needs.

The Android is the geek who is top of his class. It’s always researching and keeping up with technology. It has ambition and strives to break the barriers in the mobile world. It is not afraid to try new things, even if it means working its way through minor glitches. Best of all, you don’t have to put much thought into the brain size of this device. Most Droids come with expandable memory that provided some flexibility if you low-balled the anticipated space requirements needed and the browser works like a charm. It cost little to nothing to customize and make this device entertaining, but you have to know what you are doing. The iPhone does most of the work for you, but the Droid requires a little more thinking to get it to warm up to you.

Now it is up to you. Which device fits your personality and needs? The ‘iDevices’ maybe be a little harsh on your pockets, but if comfort and convenience is what you need then it’s worth the price. If you like customizing and do not mind a challenge, the flexibility of the Droid is what you need. What about a Windows phone you ask? I feel that one has a little growing up to do in the mobile world.

Leftover spaghetti recipe

Ever wonder what you could do with leftover spaghetti? Here is a very fast and versatile recipe I learned from my mom.
I had about 2 cups of pasta leftover so I will work with that... (angel hair, linguine, and spaghetti work best)

Heat up a pan with your favorite oil as if you were frying an egg.
2 cups of cold cooked pasta ready
1/2 - 1 tablespoon of adobo.
1 tsp of black pepper
*or you can use your favorite all purpose seasoning or spices.*
4 eggs beat in a large bowl.
Pour in your pasta and seasoning
Mix around with your fork.

Here's were you can get real creative. You can add your favorite veggies as you would on an omelette. Throw in some parmesan cheese. If you want to use another cheese like, mozzarella or cheddar, I suggest you use it as a topping for when it's done. Use diced up ham or turkey, I've even used spam. As I said, you can get real creative. Today I'm keeping it simple and basic which is still very delicious!

Once the oil is hot I like to cook a small amount of the pasta just to make sure that it is seasoned to your taste.
*Start off light on the seasoning, you can always add more!*
Use fork to place pasta in pan tongs to flip.
Cooking to golden brown on each side is ideal.
Place over paper towels to soak oil up.
*You may use pam and/or eggwhites if you want to save calories.
Honestly its so much better fried. :-)

Feel free to share your creations and feedback. I can't wait to hear from you. Enjoy readers!

oXo, J

Trend Alert- Jumpsuits 2013, Fashion or Fad?

As previously mentioned here, last year, jumpsuits are really making a strong reappearance in stores and in high fashion.

It doesn't look flattering on everyone, therefore I strongly advise you look hard in the mirror before you buy, especial my curvy plus size readers. Very rarely do I find these appealing to my fashion senses, but here are some jumpsuits that have my approval.
