Hi! I am sorry for being MIA for so long but SO MUCH has been happening in the past few months and I can’t wait to share so much with everyone! I just got back from my trip to Nashville, where I was mixing and mastering my EP, Dream Ticket, thank you to all of my friends who helped me with the creation of this work that really means so much to me. From the bottom of my heart, I cannot wait to share it with everyone and to share the LOVE. 

Here are some pics from the trip. xx J

Organic Avenue Pre Photo Shoot Cleanse LOVE*

Organic Avenue is AHHHHMAZING! What a cool concept, and makes me feel right at home which I like. I LOVE that it is made right around the corner, and has a very short shelf life for a reason. Most of the juices you see on the shelves these days are filled with things your body just doesn’t need. I hear so many people talking about buying a juicer, but having Organic Avenue in your neighborhood is like having a juicer in your backyard. 

About a year and a half ago, when I started writing the music for my EP and what will come later, the possible album, I began to become more serious about my body and its health. I was unhappy with the way I looked, I weighed much more than I would have liked to, and was eating unhealthy. I knew that changing the way I ate and exercising most days of the week would help me feel better, most importantly help my mental health and make me feel grounded. After all it is true, “you are what you eat.”

I began doing Yoga, Bikram about 4 times per day, was running a ton, removed dairy from my diet, and basically became vegan but cheated a bit because I would have my occasional piece of lean fish when I really wanted to. Recently, I was diagnosed with a serious stress fracture in my tibia and am on crutches for 6 weeks due to a lack of Vitamin D and Calcium in my bones. Right now is the most pivotal, crucial time for my bones and did not take the time to understand how to responsibly “feed” them. Sounds weird, but its true. But this is all OKAY, because I was following a pretty healthy diet before this but now I am even more aware of how important it is to properly nourish your body. You get can a ton of your essential vitamins from green juices, red juices and smoothies!

I am preparing for my big photo shoot on Monday for my upcoming EP, Dream Ticket, that I’ve been working on now for so long, and anxiously waiting to share with everyone. So I am doing the Organic Avenue Cleanse that I was able to customize myself thanks to the location and the real “Mom and Pop” shop feel where everyone is caring about your personal goal. Naturally it makes my fridge look nice too!

Look!

Organic Avenue is the best for visually understanding the importance of different food groups that you may not be aware of during a regular day of eating. The hustle and bustle of NYC can make you forget too, and that big, recognizable orange store front and the memorable logo helps you remember to always eat (or drink) your vegetables ;-)!

Stay tuned for more… xx J

Blues Traveler 90’s Nostalgia at Brooklyn Bowl Tonight

Blues Traveler is at Brooklyn Bowl tonight and I wish I was going. It reminds me of my childhood. I was talking to my friend Dave today about how we wish we were going and it led into an interesting conversation about nostalgia. I’ve spoken about nostalgia and its relation to music in one of my past inner thought provoking posts, but I think that 90’s music in particular gives me that nostalgia; A huge kick in the gut reminding me of that time in the carpool line in 5th grade wearing a plaid skirt waiting for my mom to pick me up. We got in the car and blasted the Spin Doctors and talked about how we wanted to be doctors when we grow up. That kind of non correlated weird thing, but music sparked the conversation. 

It was the time when all of the best musicians were in their prime, the talented ones, during the 90s, but music took a weird style turn so people sometimes consider 90’s music a flop or a joke, but if you do yourself a favor and listen carefully those guys really jam out. If you’re going to Brooklyn Bowl tonight, have fun!! Jealous!

Which is it for you?

Run-Around or Hook?

I want to converse with Mario Balotelli for fun. Maybe he’ll do something outrageous like give me a wet willy and go back to Italy right after.

Channel Cairo - A Year

@channelcairo I love finding new bands and music that makes me feel something. I didn’t know what to expect from the Powerdown event at Powerhouse #Metropolis and Channel Cairo impressed me. Check out their new single A Year here and on their website. Maybe a Coachella appearance someday? I could compare the sound to Radiohead and The Shins. What do you think?
