Amy, Amy, Amy

Well, I have been in fashion mode for quite some time because I haven’t done a music post in a minute! So with that being said, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to one of my favorite musicians of all time, Amy WinehouseAs most of us had seen in the past couple years, Amy Winehouse had been going through a particularly low point in her personal life. Being the prominent figure that she is, the public watched along as Amy stumbled around London streets with disheveled hair, tattered clothing, bruises and such…it was such a sad sight to see. One of the most disheartening things in the world is when people who have so much talent & so much potential for greatness allow the ills of life to push them off of their path. Life can be so hard, trust me I know, and incidents can occur that may deter us or break us down to the point where we feel we can no longer continue. But I am here to proclaim that you can continue, no matter what goes wrong in your life. Be it that you are suffering from a broken heart, from a lost job, from a damaged friendship, from an illness, from loneliness, from the loss of a loved one, from anything & everything. As long as you still have that fire in your heart, the willpower to withstand whatever else may come your way, and confidence in yourself, you have the power to rise above your situation and press on towards the goals you wish to achieve!



Thankfully, it looks like Amy is beginning to turn her life around. She just completed a 17 piece clothing line with Fred Perry and is looking very healthy in the advertisements. Also, I have read from various sources that she has begun a series of secret performances all around London. Although this is great news, I am still patiently waiting for her to drop another amazing album because, like I said, she is one of my favorite musicians. Her music is superb; it brings me back to the music of those great soul singers such as Roberta Flack, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holliday, & Aretha Franklin. I cannot get enough of it. I don't think there is one song that she has created that I don't like.

Here are a few of my top favorites…



In My Bed


Mr. Magic (not by Amy originally but I love her rendition of the song)

Stronger Than Me

F*ck Me Pumps

Tears Dry On Their Own

  10. Such a FIERCE post. I've secretly always thought that her giant mess of a beehive hair was actually really cool. Is that weird? WHATEVER DON'T JUDGE ME!

    Great post, girl! :)

  12. I really, really needed to read something inspirational today and your post was it! I've lost someone who I love so much, more than anything in the world very recently because he has betrayed me and it still hurts every single day but I'm determined to keep moving. Thank you for this! xoxoxooxo

  18. J'adore Amy Winehouse et qu'est ce qu'elle est belle dans le clip de "Stronger Than Me".
    Pour moi, mon morceau préféré est "Valerie", et n'oublions pas que c'est une très très bonne chanteuse, avec une voix magnifique.

    @PearlsAndGreenTea, thank you for stopping by!

    @Fashion Cappuccino, thank you so so so much for your comment! I'm glad you found some sort of help in my words, it really means a lot to me! And I'm sorry to hear about your friend..I know it is hard & you are probably still hurting but like I said you can still go on! You will be fine :)

    @Chay Chay, you're funny!! She really is the bomb though, and I agree about what you said about the depth & soul to her voice..it's too true! And that song really would make a great ringtone :)

    @Linda Pochinda, thank you for stopping by!

    @Terence Sambo, me too...I am getting impatient though homegirl needs to hurry up! lol :)

    @Alicia, I completely agree & I love Back to Black too! I was going to post that video but I figured 4 was already enough lol :)

    @Ioana Liliana Gheorghe, she really is an inspiration..her music has an effect on me that very few other musicians can accomplish. It's quite amazing

    @WM, she really is unique which I respect so much! It really makes me like her even more.

    @agnes, she really did look beautiful in the Stronger Than Me video! And I love Valerie as well, it's such a great song, Mark Ronson does such a great job producing her when he does.

    @ching, I miss her too :( But I have hope that she is coming back very very soon :)
