While listening to the new John Mayer album, Battle Studies, I came to a realization. I heart the simple things in life that makes sense. So when I was asked earlier today to help with situations that were pertinent to a relationship, I couldn’t. There was so much to say, but no starting point. It was like landing in the middle of marathon and not knowing whether the finish line was to your left or to your right. So, to keep things simple (like I always try and do), I instructed them to write down the good things that happen to them….keep it in their pocket….and go back to it when feeling down and out. Truth be told, life is never simple. At it’s best, it makes you feel invincible. At it’s worst, oh man. Everything crumbles. You lose focus, purpose and sometimes sanity. I’ve learned to cope with things by letting music guide me back into that happy medium. That works for me. Well that, and a one night stand…just kidding haha.
So when does it end? When your heart says so.
I’ll never forget the first time I was introduced to John Mayer’s music. It was about 2 a.m. and I was parlaying around a neighborhood Wal-Mart…drunk. I went over to the music aisle and sampled this album called Heavier Things from this guy called John Mayer. I was vibing to it but then that vibing was overshadowed by me throwing up on some cds next to where I was standing. I hustled out of there and went to ANOTHER Wal-Mart the next day to buy the cd. I’ve been hooked ever since. His music is deep and often thought-provoking, which is what’s missing nowadays. Every time I want to just mellow out and listen to good music, I pop in a JM cd. I call it “having a Mayer moment“. This is a new song off his upcoming BATTLE STUDIES album called Who Says. Enjoy.
When going out for a night on the town, what’s the one thing you have to make sure of? Well, other than your keys, wallet, purse and other default necessities. I’m talking about smelling good. What’s the point of looking fabulous and not smelling fabulous? That’s why I am going to start a new segment called (drumroll please…) That smell good ish of the week! I’m going to point out new (and older) fragrances that’ll complement your confidence and simple-sexy style, starting off with this week’s pick VIVA LA JUICY by Juicy Couture. This fragrance exudes passion and the goodlife. With hints of wild berries and mandarin mixed with honeysuckle and jasmine, this one is undeniably fresh. Although it’ll set you back about $60 (and about $100 for a giftset, ouch!) it’s well worth it. Ladies, men love a great smelling woman and this one will make them drool!
