“All Me” – Drake feat. 2 Chainz & Big Sean

With his next album, Nothing Was The Same, gearing up to drop in September, the Champagne Papi is letting the world know that it’s his time again. It may be all him, but Drake’s latest single features two of the game’s hottest right now: 2 Chainz & Big Sean. Lyrics may be NSFW, but you’ll be listening it to on repeat anyway.

Refinery Rooftop, at the Refinery Hotel

Moving does have its good points: we’re serious. In NYC we tend to hunker down in our hoods & forget about the rest the city has to offer. New York Natives recently moved and we’re loving the summer nights at the Refinery Rooftop at the Refinery Hotel; 63 W 38th St (between 5th Ave & Avenue Of The Americas). Stop by, have a cocktail, you will be happy you did.

La Tweeze: Illuminating Tweezers

Alright lets face it- woman or man, we all have personal grooming needs. And to that end, we have discovered THE most amazing device: “La Tweeze” an illuminating tweezer; can you feel our excitement!?! Why didn’t this come sooner- it is so rational, so useful, so utterly perfect a self-grooming device. AND we can’t get enough of the tag line: “just turn me on and tweeze.” Done and done!
