SO here it is - our new theme song! The highly anticipated, and VERY well-received Hot Natured single, Magic Carpet Ride, featuring the FLAWLESS vocals of Ali Love, is blowing our little Honeybee MINDS over here. We love the dreamy synths driving the tune the whole way through and the light-young-and-fun vibe that prevails. The dark, disco-dancefloor funk that is Jamie Jones is nothing short of delicious, and the spacey sounds Lee Foss throws our way coupled with Luca C's flawless production are a force to be reckoned with. The video made us giggle and cringe at the same time, while secretly wishing we were there, floating and flying with this crew of gorgeous, sweaty people. Warm up your speakers and your ear-balls Honeybees, and get ready for this FU*KING FABULOUS Magic Carpet Ride....
So if you haven't heard of Toro Y Moi by now, we won't chide you like the annoying Hipster who hates a band once others discover it, but gurrrrl-get on this musical train!
Chaz Bundick has got some serious goodness going on in this new track released on his Soundcloud 6 days ago. Its like a psychedelic slow jam with jazz-infused undertones, and we're digging it.
In fact, I've played it three times today in the office, I can get pretty annoying with the ol': "I LOVE this song! Ugh, I NEED to hear it again!" attitude, HOWEVER, I'm pretty sure they're grooving along with me with this one, a sure sign of a playlist keeper. So crank this and enjoy its kickback vibe, funky but cool musicality, and gorgeous vocals.
BANG BANG. No ladies, get your heads outta the gutter, I am not talking about what we all wanna do to this man (psh!!!) However, can we please just take a minute to appreciate this wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL bathroom we stumbled upon at San Diego's FABULOUS new hot spot Bang Bang?? We heard distant tales of this mystical washroom, so we sent our scouts out to see if it was real, IT IS. So in this rad joint where we found AMAZING music with some of the best dance acts in the world, delicious grub, and then, when you go to freshen up, ya' get THIS. ::fans self:: I mean.......
Here's a lil' collection of a few of our most loved 90s GODDESSES. Drew, Fiona, Courtney, Lisa, Mila. and of course, Shirley. BADASS CENTRAL.
We love the daisies in Drew's hair, and her UBER 90s eyebrows! Fiona makes us swoon in her red lips and makeshift scarf cropped-top. A flower crown paired with a mid-drift baring tank featuring a bleeding heart on Kurt Cobain's queen, and grunge goddess, Courtney Love is beyond delicious, and we just can't get enough of Lisa Bonnet's breezy, bohemian style with her lacy, gauzy fabrics, and quirky, earthy accessories like the medicine pouch pictured below. Milla Jovovich never ceases to amaze in a simple marijuana tee that only she can look that girly in, and then, blows our skirts up with a simple, but HOT jeans n' crop top look paired with a long fringe vest and layered necklaces. These BABES finish off STRONG with Shirley Manson anchoring the stylish crew in her over-sized leopard coat, fishnet tights, & chunky-heeled combat boots. FU*K YES girls, FU*K YES.
Here's our new lookbook shot by the amazing Joshua Spencer, with makeup and hair by the always fabulous Karina Moore, and styled by our own Alicya Blake. This lookbook features our favorite Honeybee, Brook Power, "paintin' the town red", you know, hoppin' a few fences, stomping around in her RAD Y.R.U boots and flatform high tops. She pairs her tough kicks with pretty dresses, floral bodysuits, crop tops lightning bolt leggings, and AMAZING denim. She's decked out with gorgeous crystal jewels, and well-prepared for the harsh sun of this post-apocalyptic-vibin' town with AMAZING Quay eyeware styles that we are all LOVING here at the BeHoneyBee headquarters.
Then, when she's done terrorizing this town with her awesomeness, we see Brook throw on a breezy blue dress and vintage hat, pack up her things in a pair of rad vintage bags, and skip town, all the while with her two blue dogs Cheeseburger and Holy Smokes in tow. SO. FUC*ING. FAB.
