Cruise ship room tour

Ever wondered what a crew members cabin looks like on a cruise ship? Well I’m about to give you a tour of my cabin that I stay in on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas. Now its far from glamorous and its FAR from a guest cabin haha.

Welcome to my room that I live in for one month!

DAYSHIFT SEATTLE feat SKRATCH BASTID

 

 

YO if you haven’t been to Day Shift you’re missing out big time!!

Its one of my favorite parties so far in the Summer! I just love the vibe of the whole event from the Dj’s, the venue and people. Day shift throws these parties often only in the summer, but they also do Night Shift which is their night parties that go on monthly. For more info check out their website for the next event. Trust me you won’t be disappointed!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of Dj’ing at Day Shift with some of Seattle’s finest Dj’s  and Skratch Bastid himself. If you haven’t heard of the name you best recognize! Just google the name or check out his website at http://www.skratchbastid.com/

Below is some snaps I took of him at Dayshift:

Movement for change with KaisaFit

Last Sunday I Dj’ed my very first fitness class at Melrose Market for Lululemon. Probably one of the earliest gigs I have ever done, but it was all for a good cause. Lululemon teamed up with Kaisafit to put on “Movement for Change”. Now if you haven’t heard of KaisaFit  get your phone out right now and search her name on Instagram. Go ahead I’ll wait……. haha!! This girl is a BEAST! Prior to the event I was watching her videos like HOLY SH%$ how does she do that! Another cool thing about her is she’s from Seattle too (woot woot!).

Before the event I was emailing Kaisa back and forth trying to get an understanding of the kind of music she wanted. All I saw in the email was “I love 90’s” and right then I was doing the running man in my head dancing with happiness! LOL

I attended a few fitness classes before, but her class was so different. Her energy was off the hook and I can see she has so much passion for what she does its amazing to witness. I vibed so much off of her when playing. I seriously felt like I was at a night club and Kaisa was the hype women on the mic.

Another cool fact about this event was 100% of all the money made was donated to Mary’s Place!

Mary’s Place provides a welcoming environment where homeless women, children, and families can find day and night shelter, nourishment, resources, healing and hope to help them find permanent housing.

PS. I over heard there’s going to be another KaisaFit class coming soon in the Summer, but at a much larger scale we’re talking about 300+ so stay tuned!

Here lies Love opening night party

Wow what a night last night!

I Dj’ed at the KEXP studios for a private party that Seattle Repertory Theater put on for everyone that’s apart of the Here lies love team and for their family & friends. The theme of the night was DISCO!

If you haven’t heard about Here Lies Love its a concept album and rock musical made in collaboration between David Byrne and Fatboy Slim, about the life of the former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos along with the woman who raised her—Estrella Cumpas—and follows Marcos until she and her family were forced to leave the Philippines. Cool right?

The show will be here till May 28th so make sure you go out and get your tickets and guess what! I have a discount link for 30%off!  http://seattlerep.org/promo/mahalattherep

Like always below are some pictures of the event and even some short video clips I took while Dj’ing so you can see how these people were getting down!!!

Seahawks appreciation night with George Fant @ True Religion Bellevue

True Religion teamed up with George Fant of the Seattle Seahawks for a special “Seahawks appreciation night”. There was southern food, champagne and even Hennessey what what! First time I Dj’ed an in store event serving Hennessey!

A few other Seahawk players showed up but of course me not being a sports fan I had no idea who they were I know I’m so lame. The best part of the night (for me that is!) was when the manager let me have a pair of headphones AND let me pick out a pair of jeans (ahh the lovely perks of Dj’ing in a retail store).

Capital Hill’s PRIDE!

 

I had so much fun Dj’ing for Capital Hill’s PRIDE last week. I was able to catch a few acts before me and OMG I saw this Drag Queen that goes by the name of “Lady Bunny“. After seeing her I have a new love for Drag Queens!

Then I was able to meet Candis Cayne from the TV show I am Cait. I was sitting next to her not even knowing who she was till  my friend filled me in LOL that just shows you how much TV I watch haha!
