Lady Gaga “You and I” – PITTSBURGH Version!

30 Aug

“There’s only 3 men that I’ll serve my whole life – it’s my Daddy and Pittsburgh and Jesus Christ!……So put your drinks up for Pittsburgh……Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh I love ya! Pittsburgh, I’d rather die without you…and I…” ~ Lady GaGa

I am a “Little Monster” — that is, a Lady Gaga fan. That being said, she got on my nerves BIG TIME by doing the Jo Calderone alter ego ALL NIGHT at the 2011 MTV VMAs (not to mention “Jo” stealing my girl BRITNEY’s spotlight during her lifetime achievement award….)

Anyway, despite my slight annoyance at this obnoxious character (please stop, Gaga. Please…)  this song almost makes up for it! It’s pretty sweet. Naturally, she did it for a handful of cities across the country,  BUT, it’s pretty cool that she chose Pittsburgh as one of them. According to the 96.1 KISS fm Freak Show page, Gaga is a fan of Pittsburgh because 96.1 KISS has broke a few of her singles — and, they were one of the few stations that she called in to when she dropped this one.

Enjoy – she makes quite a few references to Pittsburgh & Pittsburgh guys! Kinda cool.

 

Help REFLECT Apparel win Best Boutique in Pittsburgh

30 Aug

I usually don’t promote/push specific stores, restaurants, or brands, but Reflect at Settler’s Ridge has become a favorite of mine, and so I’d like to help them out by promoting this contest for them.

Please consider voting “Reflect Apparel” in Robinson as Pittsburgh’s Best Boutique.

You won’t be sorry – – the owners, who met  while working for Michael Kors, have done a great job of giving Pittsburgh the fashion facelift that many felt it has needed.

They scour the country to bring you fabulous garments from both established and up-and-coming designers. Their clothes are a mix of California cool classics and trendy “this-moment” looks.

To vote for them, simply go here and vote Reflect as your favorite boutique: http://www.whirlmagazine.com/2011/04/whirl-awards/

ABC to film ‘Everyday Health’ at Pittsburgh Salon

30 Aug

ABC will be in town Thursday, September 1st, 2011 to film a new reality TV show entitled Everyday Health. They will film at a salon cut-a-thon that will aim to spread awareness of psoriasis and get the message across that this autoimmune condition is NOT contagious. Proceeds will benefit the National Psoraisis Foundation.

Newlywed, reality starlet, and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian was recently diagnosed with Psoriasis, bringing some more awareness to the condition; and pro golfer Phil Mickelson lives with psoriatic arthritis, a related condition.

If you wish to take part in the cut-a-thon (remember — you may end up on TV, so be mindful of whether or not that is something that you are comfortable with) call 412.471.1575.

Here is more information from the National Psoriasis Foundation regarding the event:

 

 

“Join ABC’s “Everyday Health” and get a free haircut!

People with psoriasis often face discrimination at hair salons because others fear their disease is contagious. Show these people that you can’t catch psoriasis.

Join ABC on Thursday, Sept. 1, for the filming of a new reality show, “Everyday Health,” at Verve Wellness for a special “cut-a-thon” fundraiser to benefit the National Psoriasis Foundation. Get a haircut between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. and you could be on national TV showing your support for the millions of Americans with psoriatic diseases.

Thanks to the generosity of ABC, anyone with psoriasis in the Pittsburgh area can get their hair cut for free during this event.

Call Verve Wellness at 412.471.1575 to make an appointment during Thursday’s cut-a-thon.”
