Childish Gambino! Just released his mixtape “Royalty” on the fourth of July and I’ve been listening to it ever sense. I was also fortunate enough to see him live this year at Coachella and it is safe to say he has an established fan base, but who wouldnt being a writer for 30 Rock, actor, and comedian. Now rapping and doing it well enough to pull featured artist like Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, RZA and Ghostface Killah to name a few.
Check him out….
There are new several drugstore B.b.creams out on the market and i’ve personally tried these three.
Now what is a b.b. cream. Well its a blemish balm that is really popular overseas and is just now seeing its way over to us. Its generally a step up from a tinted moisturizer and a step down from actual foundation.
Out of these three the garnier offers the most coverage. Personally it was a little too thick for my taste and borderlined more on foundation than moisturizer.The consistency was much more heavy. Also they only have one for light skin or dark skin which i think makes it harder to create a natural look. Although if you have more dark spots i would recommend this brand since its targeted more for dark spots and discoloration.
Maybellines B.B. cream boasts that it does eight things in one. More than the other two brands.
• Evens skin tone
• Protects with SPF 30
• 0% oils and heavy ingredients
This is by far my favorite B.B. cream. I thinks its light enough to wear during the summer and still covers any imperfections. When i tried it it gave me a natural clean look and not cakey at all.
Loreal’s B.B. cream was my second favorite but looses to Maybelline only because it doesn’t cover nearly as much as the Maybelline one. It comes in fair,light,medium, and dark, but its lightweight formula makes it easy to blend in and create a natural, luminous look. I would recommend this one if you have no blemishes and just want to create a healthy clean look.
Hopefully this review is helpful and makes your b.b. cream decision that much more easier.
So Mildred and i had the pleasure of seeing Waka Flocka Flame at Jimmy Kimmels outdoor concert series yesterday, and lets just say it was a crazy good time. If you live in the southern California area Jimmy Kimmels outdoor concerts are a great way to spend your day. They are free and sometimes you get to catch artists that you really love. In this case we got to see Waka and he DID NOT disappoint. Now we got there at around 5:30 to wait in line and didnt enter till around 6:45. We then had to wait for Jimmy to go through all his guests before the musical guest ( slightly boring since there were no tv screens for us to watch the show while we waited)
He performed about 5 songs and went far beyond other artists by actually interacting with the crowd by joining his fans in the pit. All songs were performed with high energy and he even gave autographs/took pictures with fans during and after the show. All in all i give Waka an A+, besides me almost getting swallowed whole by the mosh pit, i had a great time.I highly recommend you catch an outdoor concert before the summer ends.
Watch Waka from mine and Mildreds point of view…..
…..and in tv land
Most of you know Kimbra as the sweet heartbroken voice from Gotye’s inescapable hit “somebody that i used to know”
Yeah that girl.
Well she has her own solo cd out now called Vows and i love it. The combination r&b and pop beats mixed with her killer vocals creates an album filled with great songs track after track, which is probably what prompted Rolling Stone magazine to give it three and a half stars. An impressive feat for an artists debut. Cameo lover is a great song to introduce the songstress and her talent, and believe me i saw her at Jimmy Kimmel Live and she sounded just as good as she does on her cd.
