Let’s Jam: Beijing’s Night

beijing

I loved Beijing from the moment I heard them. Another beautiful thing about social media is the people a belle has the

chance to connect with. When we “met” Beijing, it was pure chemistry. We were two belles excited to hear new music and they were a group of musicians excited to share their music. Eclectic. Stirring. Smooth. Acoustic Rock. These are a few words to describe this talented band of 4 gents from New Haven, CT. The band is comprised of Eric Thornberg (vocals/guitar), Thom Smith (guitar/synths), Bill Pruchnicki (drums) and Jack Hoopingarner (bass).

Their first EP, It’s Not So Simple ushered the group onto a stage where one could feel the passion in their music, and made die hard hip hop lovers rock out to their alternative tunes.

The alternative rock band brings a fresh take to their latest musical offering, Night. The album cover is ominous, showing a clinic where diseased children went to die in the 1900’s in Connecticut. Expect to hear about love and loss with some nice riffs here and there. With titles such as “acrobat,” “violent,” and “triggers,” you’re in for a musical ride.

It’s both a pleasure and a shame to listen to Beijing and know that they haven’t packed out arenas yet (keyword: YET). It’s pleasing to know of the group and share what seems like a little secret with y’all, but it’s a shame the masses have not rocked out to this indie group. The album weaves together various elements of love–unrequited love, the heartbreak of love, and more importantly, the hope of love.

Check out Beijing and give them a listen. I’m almost certain that your ears won’t be disappointed. The beauty of life is opening ourselves up to new things. Let a new alternative rock band be one of those new things…

Ladies, if you could go without one and only one of mother-nature’s surprises, would you? Don’t think too long about it. ‘Kay? This belle can think of a monthly friend that many of us girls wouldn’t cry over if we never saw it again.

Because this isn’t an option for most females, U by Kotex Extra Regular’s (they come in long too) pads are in a class of its own. Y’all, this jazzy line of sanitary items will have you feeling clean, fresh, and happy every time. What’s not to love? They are compact, work very well, and doesn’t look like your grandma’s pad. Tamika’s hooked because of several reasons. Don’t believe us? Check their twitter feed. Plenty of chicks are hooked…

We’ll chat more in a bit!

Beyond the colorful packaging that is super fun and dainty, these pads work extremely well. When mother-nature rolls around, you want to be sure you’re prepared so you don’t have any ‘Dang, I gotta change my undies’ surprises. These new Regular Maxi ‘s offers heavy duty protection without skimping on the cuteness.

These pads are dressed in pretty wrappers and the pads themselves are stylish (pretty decorations even on the sticky side of the maxi). They thought of everything–down to the hip writing on the box.

I don’t know about you, but the sis and I require a I-will-not-fail-you barrier between our flower (you know what I’m talking about) and panties that prevent leakage, and keep you feeling fresh and clean. It’s a MUST. U by Kotex delivers beautifully.

On a comfort level, a belle rates these as a 10. They get the job done with a big ole smile. When wearing these pads, it barely felt as if I had a pad on! The lining is soft and my entire flower area was covered from front to back. *air high five*
Tamika says she really enjoys that once the pad is applied to her undies the pad didn’t move. We can both thank their True-Fit Wings for that. You won’t have to worry about those embarrassing moments we’ve all had at some point in time. We ain’t got time for that and know you don’t either.
Tried these pretty pads? If not (and you should), check them out now for your FREE sample!
Now that’s something to shimmy about. Who doesn’t love freebies that actually work! Be sure to tip toe over to their Facebook page and see what other ladies are saying about them too. Drop us a line when you do, y’all!!!
