Man Of The Woods Mani

Man Of The Woods Mani

About last night… screw the Oscars, I was at Justin Timberlake’s Man Of The Woods Tour! In pure JT form, the show was nothing short of show stopper.  I really dig how themed out this MOTW release is, from his marketing images, to his logo (LOVE the logo!), to the tour set and beyond.  We all know I love a good theme.  I was inspired to do a little Man Of The Woods Mani for his Sacramento show, which is today’s Mani Monday.

Mixed mani with deep charcoal, muddy gray shades from Julep, and a beige and orange from OPI with a little nail art on my middle as an ode to the album cover.   I’m definitely digging it.

JT on a Sunday Funday definitely makes a Monday a little bit better, well, besides the late night and sore feet 😉  To recap those JT feels I took the setlist and made a little Spotify playlist and phone highlights on repeat!

Show opener with MOTW logo that I totally dig!

If you’re like me, you’re stuck at work.   And basically half the office, along with half the States, is out already for the holiday posting their awesome swoon-worthy-not-stuck-in-a-cube-worthy instagrams.  Or maybe you’re home cleaning up the house for your weekend BBQ, or packing for your getaway.   Regardless, you need a playlist to get the long weekend vibes going and get through the super lame Thursday.  So if you enjoy some dope beats, throw my youtube playlist up with the chrome cast, blast it from your portable speakers like the mark. Great Play Portable Speakers ($32) or play on your computer as you countdown the minutes to the end of the work day!

Word Of Alicia:  July 2014 Playlist

YG – Who Do You Love?  ft. Drake — “And my name too big, and my gang too big, Young Money s-, me and Lil Wayne too big, I’mma crush that a- even if it ain’t too big, I would pinky swear but my pinky ring too big, Wassup”

T.I. – No Mediocre ft. Iggy Azalea — “Heels on me saying gimme 6 inches of space”

DJ Snake & Lil Jon – Turn Down for What  — I’ve yet to find a situation where the phrase “turn down for what” is not appropriate.

Iggy Azalea – Change Your Life ft. T.I. — hitting repeat on iggy lately, pretty blonde and a quick tongue, yep yep!

Ty Dolla $ign – Paranoid ft. B.o.B  — creepy video, killer beat

Tyga – Wait For A Minute ft. Justin Bieber — do not, I repeat, DO NOT watch the video while listening because then you’ll see what skinny pip-squeaks Tyga and the Biebs are and it completely discredits the smooth song.  And then you’ll realize you like a Justin Bieber song (well, feature).  YOU CAN NOT BE HARD IN SKINNY JEANS, I’m talking to you too Lil’ Wayne.

IGGY AZALEA – Murda Bizness ft. T.I. (Official Video) — The video tickles my funny bone, a lot.

Drake – HYFR  — shout out to the Rabbi and the Chabad house!  (but I do not miss being your maid)

Adrian Marcel – 2AM. ft. Sage The Gemini — Sage the Gemini, “turn it up”

T.I. – About The Money ft. Young Thug — The word art on the video makes my eyes happy.  Can you geek out over word art?

Tinashe – 2 On (Explicit) ft. SchoolBoy Q — shoulder isolations all day son!

Eric Bellinger – I Don’t Want Her ft. Problem – you sample kris kross, I will love you.  period.

Tyga – Rack City — Rack City will never get old, NEVER!  “Rack city b-, rack, rack city b- Ten ten ten twenties on ya t- b-”

Disclosure – Latch feat. Sam Smith — What!?  Rack city to Latch seems completely appropriate in a playlist to me…

Nico & Vinz – Am I Wrong — just a good listen all the way around.

Maroon 5 – Maps —  when did I become a decent Maroon 5 fan?

MAGIC! – Rude — just a good summer song to end it out on.  peace!
