Lenny Rocked Marley Last Night!

In honor of Bob Marley week, Lenny Kravitz performed Roots Rock Reggae on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He did Mr. Marley proud, I did not want it to end! Can not wait to see Lenny when he opens for U2 this summer and to hear his long awaited album "Black and White In America". I heard a few of the songs on the upcoming album on Iconoclast and it sounds as if his creativity and talent will pay off! Lenny is amazing and there is no doubt that his album will live up to the anticipation.

Creative Book Shelves

I love this idea so much, Book Shelves made of books! It can be a great DIY project or you can buy the bracket here to create unique shelving in your home or office. The idea of recycling books and giving them new life excites me. The creativity is endless, medical books for a docotrs office, childrens books for the nursery, photography books for the photo geek, choose color or themed groupings. Brilliant idea, I am going to start gathering up books and get the project started for my new home office!

I have included the steps below in case you would like to try to create this project. Courtesy of RealSimple.

Find some cloth or leather-bound books with beautiful spines that will work well together as a grouping.

Buy two sets of brackets, using one set for below the books and a single bracket for above. Measure the thickness of each book and start drilling.

Slide each book between the top and bottom brackets before placing light-weight objects on it

Voila! Enjoy your new "book" shelves!

Time to Explore Inner Space!

95% of our Earths oceans are unexplored! Sir Richard Branson, American sailor, pilot and explorer Chris Welsh, and submarine designer Graham Hawkes launched Virgin Oceanic, a project to explore "the last frontiers of our own Blue Planet: the very bottom of our seas." We know more about the surface of the moon than we do about our very own oceans. Job well done Branson!!!! Can not wait to see the treasures and species you discover!

21 Nites Is Not Enough...PRINCE is Amazing!

Prince's Welcome 2 America 21 Nite Stand in Los Angeles will come to an end mid-May 2011. If you have not gotten your tickets run and get them. This is a concert you should not miss. I was blessed enough to go twice (and a 3rd time coming up this week). This man is a legend and a musical genius, to witness this amazing show is a once in a lifetime experience. Do not let this concert pass you by!

The Saturday, April 30th show brought out a totally different set than last Saturday's show. He started out the night by stating "I've got too many hits, it's going to be a long night!" He was telling the truth. Gwen Stefani was a special guest and performed "So Far, So Pleased"with Prince, she was so excited to be on stage with him, she acted like a little school girl, so gitty and excited. There were also performances with Nikka Costa and the fabulous Shiela E.

The concert seemed to go on and on with several encores even after the lights were up and the stage and lighting hands were leaving. So many concert goers who left after the 2nd and 3rd encores missed out on two more encores, he did "Darling Nikki in the 4th!!!!! The last encore bringing The Times, "The Bird" and "Jungle Love"! Prince was still on stage performing at midnight! This concert was over 3 hours long and I still did not want it to end. The crowd was still chanting his name after the 5th encore! Check out the set list for the night below:

Met 2011 Spring Gala

NYC was the place to party and be seen last night at the annual Metropolitan Museum of Arts Gala. The gala was in celebration of the works of the late Alexander McQueen, titled Savage Beauty. The exhibition demonstrated how extraordinary and beautiful McQueen's pieces are and how great of a loss McQueen is to the fashion industry. Models and celebrities were in full force fashion as they walked the red carpet. Guests danced the night away to the music of the talented Bruno Mars and Janelle Monae. Above are a few of my personal favorite looks from the night, unexpectedly actress Christina Ricci was a show stopper in Zac Posen, who was also her escort for the evening.
