Super Bowl 50 Weekend


Cocaine Princess here.

It's Super Bowl Weekend aka The Most Epic Cheat Day Ever!! Mmm....I can already taste those yummy chicken fingers.

This may come as a shock but I don't follow football. Up here in the Great White North it's all about hockey. The only thing that interests me about football is The Super Bowl and that's only because of the food, the commercials and the half-time show.

From what I know the teams that will be playing are The Denver Bronocs and The Carolina Panthers. 



So which team do I think will take home the glorious trophy? I have no idea however if you were to ask me which team uniform I like best----

 The Carolina Panthers. 

May the best team win!!

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
Whatever your plans are have an epic 1st weekend of February.~x

Groundhog's Day---- CANCELLED


Today is Groundhog's Day and it's with extreme sadness that I write a death has occurred......  Excuse me while I grab a Kleenex.

Winnipeg Willow, who is the equivalent of Punxsutawney Phil was found dead on Friday. Willow, who was five when she died, came to the centre in 2010 after her mother was killed by a dog.

Winnipeg Willow died at the province’s Prairie Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. She will be remembered for her love of kale, sweet potatoes, peanuts and carrots, a treat she was last seen enjoying before she died without warning Friday evening. She was five years old.

Hmm, she was found dead? Without any warning? 

What does that exactly mean and why was there no mention of an autopsy report? Surely one must have been conducted and if not why? Could it be the Prairie Wildlife  Rehabilitation Centre is doing some type of life insurance fraud?

How did this beloved Canadian icon die?  She was last seen eating her favorite treat. Could she have been poisoned? My bets are on a rival woodchuck who wanted her job. 

If by chance Willow died of natural causes I wonder if it was Post-Traumatic Syndrome-- after-all her mother was murdered by a four legged beast. Or maybe, just maybe the stress of fame got to Willow and she took her own life.

Kidding aside, Groundhog Day Celebrations have been cancelled.

So now I wonder, if the Groundhog is dead does this mean winter is also officially dead and spring is around the corner for us?

"Ain't Nobody...."




Cocaine Princess here.

I know what you're thinking--- Where is the braless & vending machine food post?! She promised this week! I assure you-- in all honesty it'll be up next week. 

In the meantime--- I've never been a fan of remakes especially when it comes to music. There's never any comparison to the original however yesterday I heard the remake of Chaka Khan's 80's song, "Ain't Nobody. German Music Producer Felix Jaehn released a Euro remix of the hit song with 15 year old Jasmine Thompson.


Take a listen....

"
Captured effortlessly
That's the way it was..... 

And now we're flyin' through the stars
I hope this night will last forever...."




Isn't Euro music awesome!

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
Whatever your plans are have a fantastic last weekend of January. ~x

'Mirrors On The Ceiling, The Pink Champagne On Ice....'

Cocaine Princess here.
 "When Words Fail, Music Speaks"

Is it me or has 2016 become a really bad start for musicians?  

Last week the world lost David Bowie and today another one has been taken from us, Glenn Frey, co-founder & guitarist for the band, "The Eagles."

I saw "The Eagles" in concert with sissy-poo back in 2008. I admit I didn't only have a great time but also a memorable time.  You can read all about that here. 

RIP Glenn Frey. Upon your arrival may there be mirrors on the ceiling & Pink Champagne on ice....




Your music will always live on.  

I love this song---



Hmm, perhaps God is forming a super band in heaven? Lemmy, David Bowie, Glen Frey.... 

BTW---next week you'll finally learn how I ended up braless & eating food out of a vending machine. 




XOXOXO,
Cocaine Princess

The 10 Commandments Of Bowieism


Cocaine Princess here.

 "Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything." ~Plato
  
It's been quite a sad week in the entertainment world. In case you've been living under a rock singer David Bowie died of cancer on Sunday, at the age of 69, one day after his birthday.

News of his death came as a shock to both his fans and celebrities as condolences began pouring in on twitter. 4.3 million to be exact....... 




"The 10 Commandments of Bowieism" -:


RIP, Ziggy. Your Music Will Live On.

Hmm, we're only 15 days into the New Year and already we've lost 14 celebrities

Ah life......so short & yet so fragile that we must never forget to Live, Love & Laugh.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
Whatever your plans are have a delightful weekend.~x

1st Entry of 2016


Cocaine Princess here.

We're into Day 8 of the New Year and I trust everyone has fully recovered from the holiday season in particular New Year's Eve. For me I found Advil and Red Bull worked quite nicely in my recovery.

Last weekend sister & I went to see Quentin Tarantino's latest film, "The Hateful Eight."

The plot: The story takes place in post Civil War Wyoming. A bounty hunter, known as The Hangman (Kurt Russell) and his prisoner, Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) encounter another bounty hunter, Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) who claims to be a sheriff. Seeking shelter from the blizzard they stop at a rest-stop cabin and are greeted by other strangers. As the storm overtakes the mountainside the eight strangers realize they may not make it out alive as one of them is poisoned asking the question, "whodunnit?" 

The mystery-western film was 3 hours long and consisted of 5 chapters with a backstory for each of the 8 strangers. My thoughts on the film?  I really can't say because I fell asleep during Chapter 3 & 4 and woke up midway through Chapter 5. Can you believe that?! And it wasn't because I thought the movie was boring, if anything I was quite interested in the story-line. The last thing I remember is my eyelids began feeling quite heavy just around the time The Hangman agreed to let Major Marquis ride with him and his prisoner on the stagecoach.

Honestly I don't know who I'm more angry at-- sister for not waking me up or the Sandman putting me to sleep?  My God-- of all the stupid places and times for him to put me to sleep it's at the movies! I questioned sister as to why she didn't wake me. Her whispered reply, "I didn't want to disturb you. It's the most amount of sleep you've had all week." What's worse is she refused to tell me what happened in the previous chapters so I had no clue as to what was going on or who these new characters that had appeared on the screen were and because of that I didn't understand the ending. 

During the car ride home sister finally explained what occurred during Chapters 3, 4 and the beginning of 5 but still I had questions- Who? What? Why? Well if so and so did that then why did that happen?

Watching "The Hateful Eight" was like picking up a book I've never read before and reading only the first and last chapter. 


Other than, "what the hell happened?"  I really can't form an opinion on the film. However I can say the popcorn and the nachos were quite tasty.

****

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
Whatever your plans are have a splendid weekend.~x

Goodbye 2015: Highlights & Favorites



Cocaine Princess here.

I can't believe tomorrow is not only a brand spanking new day but a brand New Year. I welcome the year 2016 with open arms.

2015 was a fantastic one. I post quite a bit of my life on Instagram but here's a look back at some of the Highlights.

FEBRUARY

SuperBowl Weekend was an indeed quite memorable and not so much because of the game. I spent the weekend with, let's just call him a friend. Anyways, I discovered a love for vodka-- perhaps a little too much because when I had awoken I found my pretty lace bra by the Vodka bottle. 


APRIL

The month where chocolate eggs are hunted had me so ticked off  because my account was flagged. Why? Some idiot felt the picture I posted below was "offensive" and complained.


 JULY

Summer 2015 was a very busy one. Over the 4th of July weekend I attended--

Mr. Wayne Warner's All White Party:


The next morning I attended The 50th Annual Queen's Plate:



And the morning after that I boarded a flight to Chicago. If memory serves me correctly I hardly slept a wink that weekend. This was my first time to Chi-town. Work had taken me there for approximately nine days. 



I had two days off & during those days I crammed a week's worth of sight-seeing which included attending the "Taste of Chicago"- I wasn't going to at first, in-fact some of my Chicago colleagues had warned me not to go on account of it being too crowded and therefore I wouldn't enjoy it. I decided to ignore their warnings and thought, "how many times am I going to be in Chicago during this time of year." I didn't want to return home regretting not going. 



The word crowded does not even begin to cover it. It was a pure sea of humanity! I barely had room to move my arms and to make matters worse the smoke coming from the 200+ food trucks were burning my eyes. I bought a strip of tokens-- 8 for $12.00. Every food truck I wanted to go to had a lineup with at least 100ppl. I just gave up and headed to the bar where I bought a Pinot Noir for 9 tokens. 


The only thing I tasted at the Taste of Chicago was in liquid form but I knew I couldn't leave this amazing city without tasting an authentic Chicago Style Pizza.
 Everyone I spoke to, including strangers at the salon when I was getting my hair done insisted I needed to go to Giordano's. According to the masses, Giordano's simply has the best deep dish style pizza anywhere! I waited 20mins to get a table and then was told it takes anywhere between 40-45mins to bake. 




It was Oh-my-God-this-is-heaven-in-my-mouth-good. Although I had an amazing time and experience in Chicago, I will say it's never any fun traveling alone especially when you're dining.

The 7th month on the calendar also brought about a special astrological event. Venus and Jupiter aligned for the 1st time in 2000 years.


SEPTEMBER
I was shocked and saddened to learn about the death of my favorite NYT bestselling author, Jackie Collins who passed away from breast cancer. Below is a picture of her books from my library.


Designer Ralph Lauren who built his fashion empire based on "Country Club Prep" stepped down as CEO after 48 years. 



OCTOBER
In the month of October I saw Madonna preform in concert.





On Halloween Night I attended The Vampire's Ball, dressed of course as a Cheeky Lil' Devil!

 


NOVEMBER

The month of November took me to Puerto Vallarta! It was 7 days of pure heaven. Relaxation  at it's best.


It's really hard to narrow down the best part of my trip but visiting the film set of "Night Of The Iguana"  is high on the list.The film set was was closed off to the public but lucky me was able to get inside.




FAVORITES: Songs & Pictures

2015 gave me 4 favorite songs in 3 different categories. Why are these my favorite? Hmm, sometimes you just can't explain why you like something other than you just do.

Favorite Song: 

Song For Someone: U2

 

Favorite EDM Song:

It's a tie between----

Firestone~ Kygo ft. Conrad Sewell

And---

Generate~ Eric Prydz

Favorite Euro Track: 

Dangerous~ David Guetta ft. Sam Martin.



I giggle because there's a real good reason why this song made the list. You see, this particular song happened to be playing during the vodka & bra incident..... Ahh, memories...

Instagram Picture:

I can't really say which picture is my all time favorite but I can say out of all the pictures I posted from my trip in November, the one I posted early one morning of me on Playa de Mismolaya was very much liked and the one I received the most direct messages:





New Year Resolutions:  

I've always said it's better to break the rules than obey them. That maybe true but I think this year I'll be making a resolution. It's no secret I love fashion. I live it. I breathe it. As much as I love fashion, I love writing a teeny bit more. This past year I feel as if I've been neglecting my love & passion for it. Work has certainly kept me busy that at times I found myself making excuses. I promise myself to not make any more excuses and to find the time. Writing is my happy place.

My loyal and dear readers, my Lovelies, from the bottom of my Colombian Heart I want to thank each and everyone of you for taking the time to visit my blog. I wish you all Love, Good Health & Fortune & Peace In 2016.

Happy New Year!
May You All Find Your Light!
