I Made You A Mixtape

{images a la pinterest}

Hand-holding was awkward, being dropped off at the movie theater for your date – more awkward, but when he made you a mix tape – that was love. Because I live a soundtracked life (more on that here), and because I am a product of the 80s, every Wednesday I’ll make you a mix tape. Who says chivalry is dead? You’re welcome.

Earlier this week I turn on the radio (somewhat rare for me now — admitted Pandora addict, right here), and I hear a baby rapper singing “I’m a 90’s baby, clearly.”

90s baby!  Rappers are 90s babies.  Yikes. And that baby rapper?  His name is Diggy Simmons – son of Rev Run.  Woah, when did I get old?

Sooo, in an attempt to make myself hip again – the current rap playlist:

Do It Like You, Diggy Simmons

Make Me Proud, Drake feat. Nicki Minaj

Dance, Big Sean

Drank In My Cup, Kirko Bangz

Lotus Flower Bomb, Wale feat. Miguel

Rack City, Tyga

Another Round, Fat Joe feat. Chris Brown

Pretty Little Heart, Robin Thicke feat. Little Wayne

Iris Apfel for Mac Cosmetics

I’m practically giddy over MAC’s latest celebrity-driven pairing with Iris Apfel.  Don’t get me wrong, pop stars like Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj dreamed up a few fabulous shades of hot pink that I barged into department stores for, but this collaboration has my head spinning … because I.WANT.IT.ALL.

I have long been fascinated by New York and Palm Beach based designer, Iris Apfel – her ability to mash together fashion and design never ceases to amaze me.  The eccentric feather-loving designer is now 90 years old and still collaborating.

Apfel was famously quoted – on buying inexpensive clothes – “What the hell, if they don’t fit, I’ll turn them into pillows”.  My kind of lady.

 

Apfel’s makeup collaboration is undoubtedly fabulous – the 20-piece line, which is mostly named after birds that were featured in a museum exhibit curated by Iris, is full of bright jewel tone hues and deep neutrals.

Stuck on Pink Pigeon and Pretty Parrot … help!
