BBOTD : Know What I Want

This Bumping Beat of The Day graced my ears as I arose this morning. Eyes barely opened and sun shining through the shades … I knew today was going to be a sunny positive day! Muchas Gracias to Kali Uchis for singing this Eargasm.

“I know what I want ”   a life filled with running into Hello Kitty and driving Red Hot Ferrari’s !

Mondaze in Ann Arbor, Michigan

A big part of Mondaze is Motivation, Mindfulness, & maintaining a Meatless diet

#TGIM Thank G-d It’s Monday – well yesterday was the first time i ever came across the abrev #TGIM – very bizarre but i went with the notion and continued to follow through with my version of Mondaze.

Mindful Monday was a sweet sweet success yesterday. Waking up on Monday Mornings I turn quickly to “snooze” which I think could be re branded as a time dedicated to meditation. I do not use my “snooze” to just roll my eyes back into my head & dream land but a moment of clarity.
Meditation Music makes the end of your day a sweet send off

Music of the day : Thomas Jack Vol 4 Tropical House

Getting super pumped up to go see him preform live in Chicago in February at The Mid. If you want to join me purchase your tickets here

Signing up for not one but TWO classes at The Barre Code in Ann Arbor : they have two fabulously convenient locations on is right downtown Ann Arbor on E Liberty between Maynard St & Thompson Street and the second is off Plymouth Road. The owner of The Barre Code Adri is a honey and i love supporting local startups & women ! #Girlpower – you don’t see too many men around The Barre Code but don’t let that stop ya felllas !

    Meatless Diet

Within the first thirty minutes of being awake and up & moving I like to have a piece of fruit to rev up my metabolism. Typically a Granny Smith Green Apple or Bartlett Pear.

Driving to Ann Arbor and getting off at Main Street I can’t help myself but stop into Mighty Good Coffee

Moving forward to lunch I walked over to my new go-to loving lunch spot Salads Up for a Mix It Up Salad filled with edamame, chic peas, cucumbers , red peppers, avocado , olives and broccoli with a spicy shiracha dressing! Dank.

Lady J ( maybe you remember her from the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos ) whipped me up some mouth watering orgasmic roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner along with our favorite breakfast for dinner omelet while i took on my Mondaze Motion hard.

Mondaze are the perfect day to take your tasks head on >>>> this weeks mondaze motion was to figure out that darn crock pot that is taking up so much space in our kitchen ! One of my new favorite social networking sites Yummly.Com allows amateur and professional chefs alike share recipes in a YUMMY way ! Check out my Yummly Collection of #1307Daily Recipes . FRENCH ONION SOUP you are my b*tch and i’m making you mine ! tipping this off was to caramelize onions! wpid-snapchat-3594131855462917539.jpg

Today I felt like rocking some totally betchin’  Fall Fashion : Head to Toe Let’s go !!

Fedorable Hat that was purchased at a local Ann Arbor store on E.Liberty Street – Orchid Lane

Winter Jacket – Moncler – cheers to the enchanted journey we’ll spend day in and day out for next 5 months. Investing in a winter coat is one of the

Rabbit Fur Vest – astounding  layering piece that brings any outfit to the next level !

Basic Long Sleeve Top – stock up + pile on the quintessential basic long sleeve. Find a basic Betch top + buy 5 of them ( black, white, grey, brown, navy ) & change it up each and everyday. Makes your mornings much more effortless!

Gucci Belt –  committing yourself to Kayne’s work out plan means you jeans are gonna start to get looser …. time to slap on that belt !!  It is majorly encouraging when you have to go to + get a new hole put into your staple belt ! Wearing a belt makes you look that much more sophisticated and put together.

Classic Blue Jeans – that are made of real denim –  time to toss those pajama jeans and jeggings + go back to real denim (for those of you who ever chose to ditch it in the first place).  Featured here is a pair of Rag & Bone!

Step into your Fall Boots – cameo causal boots add a sharp edge to the Fall Uniform !

instagram-256One of my favorite new follows on Instagram is @CoffeeNClothes – its a person who is based out  Soho + Brooklyn  in New York! as an avid coffee drinker i feel compelled to #CoffeeNclothes  on my @Tr3ndey account whenever i’m rockin’ a good gettup !

About a week ago I was at a Pop-Up Henna Shop in Birmingham, Michigan. I got this show-stopping Henna Tat ! Maybe CoffeNClothes will feature me on their page!

Do It For Detroit x September 2014

After the event while hanging out side waiting for valet to bring my car around I got to state up at the MAGNIFICENT HENSE 6 – Story Mural !! Boy o Boy !! It sure is a site to see !!

HENSE_Detroit_MadisonB_1

The Library Street Collective + Bedrock Real Estate have teamed up to paint the town ! It seems like every week there happens to be a new public art work project that begins. The public art works create a sense of community and beautify the city of Detroit !

After staring at the mural for a while and securing my car in the gated area outside of the M@dison Building – me and some friends walked over to the hot new restaurant Wright & CO !
We honestly walked past the sneaky side entrance of the building off Woodward Ave – once we turned back and went up the 2 story stair case we made it to Wright & Co ! It’s located on the second level of 1500 Woodward Ave … SO COOL. When we entered a group of people in all black with mustaches on and balloons sang to us – turns out this is not a part of the restaurants greeting but a silly group of friends who had just dined in.

The vibe inside Wright & Co takes you to a fantasy land – are you really in DOWNTOWN DETROIT? YEAH WE WERE ! Wright & Co
Literally so excited to dine at Wright & Co – their drinks are also crafted by the same guy from Sugar House – the best speakeasy and drinks in downtown Detroit. Wright & Co is the purveyors of fine food & drink – the menu is not that large but it gets the job done of filling your belly! We ordered a few different items : Fresh Potato Chips , Sriacha Chicken Sewers , Roasted Cashews, Crisp Gulf Shrimp, & Tuna Tartar. I can’t wait to go back and try more menu items.

Keep Doin’ it for Detroit

Do It For Detroit x September 2014

Wright & Co

Ahh September 2014 – a Detroit night well spent at the very end of the month. I traveled to downtown Detroit for an event at the M@dison Building off Woodward Ave. ROCO Real Estate – a company that was created by a friend of mine David Coleman and his Brother Michael & a third guy Tyler Ross. The event teamed up with State Bags & the Detroit Achievement Academy for a fundraiser.

http://www.statebags.com/collections/all/products/mercer-2

State Backpacks – Any bag purchased and another bag is donated & for this event all of the bags purchased donated a bag to the Detroit Achievement Academy. The event ticket bought a backpack but you could also purchase an additional backpack at the event – which in turn donated another bag to a student at the Detroit Achievement Academy.

Detroit Achievement Academy exists to holistically support the education and development of students who have the determination, drive, and skills to shape their own path of high achievement with the ultimate goal of creating civically engaged, joyful citizens who are ready to change the world.

The event was even covered by DBusiness Magazine and Photos of Me can be seen here.
