Norah Jones

I had the pleasure of seeing Norah perform at Madison Square
 Garden last year. She has such an amazing voice. Love her! 



and Greg Laswell...

I also had the pleasure of seeing Greg Laswell perform live last year. He performed at Joe's Pub. It was a great experience, I laughed, I cried, and I even sang along with almost every song. I've gotta see Greg perform again. 



And the list will goes on.

I always love going to Roll Zip in Flushing Queens.
It's a Korean/Japanese "fast food" restaurant. Rolls on the go.

30 Day Blog Challenge - Tameeka Time - Day 08


30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 08
Day 8 - A song that fits your mood.


  Rest in peace Amy Winehouse.
I remember being introduced to her second album by a co-worker. 
And I thought Amy's voice was the greatest thing I heard in a long time. 
I listened to Back to Black a number of times.
I distinctly remember listening to My Tears Dry on Their Own with my friend Candice from the blog Practice in Public while we worked. Those were good times. 
It's really sad to hear that she is gone but I am grateful for having heard her voice
and hear what talent sounds like.

Have a listen to "My Tears Dry on Their Own" by the late Amy Winehouse


And here's another one of my favorites.. "Just Friends"

Day 7 - Your dream wedding.

My dream wedding would be designed by David Tutera.
He is my dream wedding planner/designer.
I love watching "My Fair Wedding."
And, I love how he transforms a simple wedding idea into a magical, and unforgettable event.

Here's what my wedding would look like:




If David Tutera was involved in my wedding, I'd  be like this: 


But I would be so grateful I'd then have to do this... 


And if you don't know who David Tutera is.. get to know him...

Happy Monday All!

This young man just can not handle Mondays..

Could this be considered 'backwards' planking??!

Day 5 - A Photo of yourself two year ago.



This is me 2 years ago.

Two years ago, I lived in Ozone Park Queens, I was an assistant editor, and this was my first year being perm free. And because I am perm free I experiment with all kinds of hairstyles.

But overall, so much has changed and I'm grateful for every experience.

And I'm so much more happier than I was 2 years ago.

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 03 
Day 3 - Your idea of the perfect first date.


I'm pretty cheesy when it comes to dates.

The perfect first date would involve going to dinner (somewhere very sexy).
Japanese cuisine is always a good way to go.
Somewhere with a relaxed atmosphere. 

If it's summer time I enjoy sitting in a park.
One of my favorite places to hang out is Madison Square Park.
In the Summer, it's never too crowded but there are just the right amount of people around.
Sitting and just talking is a first date must.
If it's winter a nice cozy wine bar (with a little live Jazz) would seal the deal. 

And if the night is still young, some dessert would be in order. 
Coffee/tea, conversation, and little cake would make me happy.

Day 2 - A Photo of something you ate today.


Today I had one of my favorite salads for lunch. The salad above is the Spicy Fried Chicken Salad from NY Burger Co. 

This salad consists of chicken, avocado, cheddar cheese, and poblano. 
It's so tasty especially with the chipotle honey ranch dressing .. if your ever in Chelsea I highly recommend it.

30 Day Blog Challenge - Day 01 
Day 1 - A Photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.



You wouldn't know it from the photo collage above but I had a very long day. 
I did not sleep well the night before, and I went to work all kinds of sleepy. 
Luckily I had some delicious Starbucks coffee to snap me out of my sleepytime cloud
I worked until about 6:30pm (started at 9am). 
Right after work I headed to the gym to take one of my favorite classes (intermediate step aerobics).
Of course the class was canceled so I settled for taking Zumba
After that I grabbed some dinner, came home, watched the NY Red Bulls get their butt kicked and started blogging. 
 I think I deserve to lay down now :)

Graffiti - Video - 5 Pointz - "UpHigh Series" - Part 1 & 2




If you've ever been to 5 Pointz I know you've been amazed at the graffiti pieces that are so way up high. I had the pleasure of filming artist CortesNyc while he was painting up up high not too far from the sky.


It was a different experience filming him at 5 Pointz because I'm used to being on the ground with him, being able to communicate on where and where I could not film.

Check out Part 1 and 2 of the series "5 Pointz Up-High"

Please remember to support legal graffiti, everyone who visits and paints at 5 Pointz would appreciate if you could sign this petition. We need to keep this graffiti haven open.

New Video - CortesNyc's Graff Tour Part 8 - Spain

Last Sunday, Cortes and I unleashed Part 8 of "CortesNyc's Graffiti Tour Series" on to youtube.

This is the second destination of the European tour and this time we show Cortes, Blen, and Bad6 in Spain.


I absolutely love the footage Cortes was able to capture and this part of the trip looked like so much fun!

It was pretty amazing to see the guys at the Montana Paint Factory and there are so many more artists introduced this go around.




I don't want to give away any more info on the video but Cortes did an amazing job capturing a "streetwalker" getting into a fight with her pimp! Believe me you'll want to see what happens. 



Check out.. the second part of this web series.. (and if you missed the first part in France click here)
