4Play – G4SHI

October 21, 2014

 

2014.10.20_g4shi

 

G4SHI (pronounced Gashi) released his first album 4Play on October 4th. G4shi has been around in the New York rap scene since 2010, and this has been his biggest achievement to date. He had been working on this album for a while in attempt to make it exactly the way he envisioned it.

His major music influences have come from 2Pac, Eminem, Jay Z and Kanye West, just to name a few. G4shi’s raps are relatable to most people, as he raps about his journey thus far, friendships, hardships, family and about what he has been doing to reach his goals and make his dreams come true.

G4shi is definitely one to watch as an upcoming artist, he says “it’s about the art and doing what I love and spreading the love.” Not only does he have a great rap style, he also has a great personal style and already has a big following, or “F4MS”. His F4MS are not only from USA but also from all around the world.

Following the release of 4Play, G4shi has signed up with Republic Records and is planning a tour. The album has been released for free, click the links below to have a listen.

how are you treating your hair?

October 20, 2014

2014.10.20_aesop hair treatment

 

 

 

I just rinsed my hair after treating it with Aesop’s Rose Hair & Scalp Moisturising Masque.

The first thought that went through my mind as I was towel drying my hair was “why did it take me so long to go and look for a hair treatment!!!”.

My hair wasn’t even dry yet and I could already see that the treatment had worked. My hair already looked healthier, it was so silky that my brush just glided through my hair with no effort at all and it smelled so, so nice. After drying it a bit with my hair dryer I could also see that it was more voluminous and soft, which is great.

I am on a quest to learn more about hair and how to make it more lovely and soft and shiny. I realised that since I stopped going to the hair salon ( I have decided to let my natural colour come through for a while, for a more natural look) I hadn’t had a treatment and I felt like I needed to  pay more attention to my hair.

I chose an Aesop treatment because I have had great results from other Aesop products and also remembered that the brand actually started out by launching hair products, so naturally they would have their haircare products down pat.

Anywho, I’ll be using this once a week, so I will see how it goes and I will report back with other hair tips that I learn about.

my legendary girlfriend

My Legendary Girlfriend is a cafe on 157 Domain Road, South Yarra.

 

This is one cafe I never get takeaways from. Why? They give you a little quote with your coffee, it’s usually placed under the glass. You only get a quote if you sit inside. Plus they also have cool artwork on the walls and the pattern on cushions on the benches in the back looks really nice.

Illustrations: 1. pattern on cushions. 2. latte (they have bright orange saucers) 3. quote under my cup. ( I started collecting them and they’re stuck around my monitor and walls. )

 

Other quotes I have collected so far:

“To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”

- Elbert Hubbard

” People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

- Zig Ziglar

” What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

too pretty

I received a lovely package of some candles a couple of weeks ago from the lovely ladies at Candles by Alexa Rose.

They are now displayed all around my room. Some on my bedside table as you can see in the image above,  a couple are also in my book shelves and there’s one on my dresser.

The candles all have different quotes and images on them and the ones I received are so me. They had all my favourite things on them; Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, one had ‘The Juliet Report’ on it, a coffee one and the ones in the photo. These candles are very personal and special and make a such a great gift. They are actually too special and too pretty for me to use.

Every couple of weeks I like to treat myself to a new nail colour. I have always loved painting my nails. I feel like it’s a really subtle form of self expression and also a nice way to add some colour to your look.

Today I chose Mecca Cosmetica-Artistry Nail Polish-Volumina. It would look excellent with this dress from The Row Spring 2015 Collection.

doughnuts and nail art

October 8, 2014

2014.10.03_walkers donuts packaging 2014.10.05_nail art

As well as looking out for cool cafes and burger places in Melbourne, I am also looking for yummy doughnuts. I’ll try and make a list one of these days of all the places I’ve found and post it up here.

I went to Walker’s Doughnuts the other day, I don’t mind them, and they are convenient as they are opposite Flinders station on the corner of Flinders Street and Elizabeth street.

These last few days I have been homebound with a cold which is not very exciting. So to keep busy I gave myself  a CommePlay manicure, and my sister a kitty cat manicure. And because it is so fun I have decided to be a nail artist. No not really, but wouldn’t that be such a great job? I was going to apply to TrophyWifeNail Art but then realised I am too busy trying to be a fashion designer and so have no time to also pursue a career as a nail artist. insert sad face here. So in the mean time I will just decorate the nails of anyone that will let me.
