ON REPEAT: Suicide Squad Soundtrack

A couple of weeks ago I FINALLY saw ‘Suicide Squad’. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie despite critic reviews. I thought it was entertaining and can’t wait for sequels and spinoff films. What I loved almost as much as the movie was the soundtrack. Most of the tracks have been in pretty heavy rotation for me. 


Here are a few of my favorites made for the movie.

“Purple Lamborghini” – Skrillex & Rick Ross

“Sucker For Pain” – Lil’ Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons w/Logic, Ty Dolla $ign ft X Ambassadors (basically everyone and anyone is on this track…I was asked to be on it too but I was busy.)

“Gangsta” – Kehlani

Because really, we doesn’t love the sick, twisted relationship The Joker and Harley Quinn have.

Georgia State of Mind


Things have been more than busy here and I have much to update on from the past couple months. 

First off, I live in Georgia now!

I still have photos to post from seeing Kristin Control, Garbage, Muna, BORNS and Adia Victoria. 

I have more recipes to share, photos I’ve taken in general, books I’ve read and am currently reading plus much more.

So, check back soon and often! 

RECIPE: Lavender Lemonade


Recently I made Lavender Lemonade and it was a major hit with my family and friends. Such a refreshing drink during this hot weather. Now, I have to keep it on hand all the time. Thought I would share the recipe with you all. 

Makes 10 servings

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup dried lavender buds
  • 2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 10 lemons)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)


In a large saucepan, bring one gallon of water and the sugar to a boil. Remove from heat, and add 1/4 cup of lavender buds along with the lemon juice and lime juice in the pot.

Let the mixture cool to room temperature, then strain and chill. Store in your favorite serving pitcher or large mason jars.

Once the lemonade is chilled, serve on with or without ice in your favorite glassware and add the additional sprigs of lavender for garnish if you’d like. For a great adult drink, add a little gin to it.

I’ve been doing a shit job of keeping this blog updated but with good reason. Life is hard and being busy is an understatement right now. To quote Heathers, “real life sucks losers dry…”

There are so many adventures from the past month to be shared;  photos, book reads, music I’m digging, films I’ve seen and more!

Stay tuned.
