So recently I was feeling very down because, like a lot of women out there, I put a lot of pressure on myself to be independent, driven and successful. This is what my best friend said to me on the phone when I was feeling this way:
Slowing down and relying on someone is not needy.
It's a breathing space.
It's a blessing.
Being vulnerable has nothing to do with our talents.
and know that love is in front of us,
Be proud of who you are.
Be proud of the people behind you.
I hope this helps someone else! x
ProfessionalRockstars.com covered the WMC (Winter Music Conference) in Miami this past March. Here are some of the highlights.
At the age of 29, designer Kristian Aadnevik already has an admirable past in fashion that essentially started with a job as Alexander McQueen's design assistant. Need I say more?
Check out these oh so haute to trot garments yourself. Beware of drool.
I recently discovered Uffie, the young girl from Miami who became an Indie/Electro European star by distributing her music on Myspace.com.
In fact, it was her distribution on Myspace that landed her a deal with none other than Ed Banger records and made her track "Pop The Glock" an International underground sensation.
There are no actual music videos for Uffie as of yet, but if you search you will find countless videos filmed by fans of young Uffie drinking, drunk dancing and sometimes.... even singing.
What's to come of Uffie; who can say? But I will say get your music out there Rockstars so you can live your rockstar moment. If little Uffie did it, so can you. Rock on.

I love a lot of music, bands and artists. But one of my top ten faves is Joseph Arthur and has been for about the past 6 years.
Joseph is the most down to earth, real person I have ever met in the music biz. He's charming, funny and he loves his fans. He actually couldn't stop talking about an amber cross earring that was given to him by a fan/friend at his concert earlier that night and how he met her on myspace. It made his night!
So if you ever see him live, approach him and tell him you love him. It will make his night as much as his show made yours.
Go out and grab his 2 CD releases from this past year, "Let's Just Be" and "Nuclear Daydream". They may just change your life!
You will see the new interview soon as well as exclusive rockstar coverage of the live show.
In the meantime, follow these links and you won't be disappointed.
Ok, so maybe I'm being a little harsh, but what is with all the crocs?
I see entire families wearing them and sometimes even in matching colors!
I mean, I guess I could understand children wearing them....but grown women and even worse, grown men?
They can't be THAT comfortable that people are willing to look like total morons. Since when has fashion been so obviously compromised for practicality?
If you wear crocks, I apologize for my bluntness. But I'm merely telling you what your friends are too nice to say.
No more Crocs!

Consultant Hair Artist and Colourist for L'OREAL Paris, Eric Del Monaco, tells ProfessionalRockstars.com, "We tried to remember what made us happy back in the 80's, there was new wave and then a return to elegance with pointed shoes and longer lengths for skirts which translates into our current look that is all about self expression".
Amanda K popped by to get the pampering treatment from Eric backstage at L'OREAL fashion week amongst the exciting preparation for the Greta Constantine fashion show. Watch as Eric becomes inspired and Amanda K walks away with a stunning do that only Eric could create!
Thank you L'OREAL Paris!
