Currently Digging – The MJ vs Prince Edition

Currently Digging - MJ vs Prince Edition | www.trinidadpena.com

Let’s get to know each other shall we? Here’s what I’m currently digging – the MJ vs Prince edition. What are you into this month?

Listening to: In NYC, Keistar productions holds an amazing party called “Soul Slam – Michael Jackson vs. Prince” . It’s exactly what it sounds like — a party with all MJ and Prince music. People dress up and it’s the best time! This playlist is inspired by that party and I’ve been rocking it hard.


  • Mike Monteiro | F*ck you. Pay me –  Despite it’s foul-mouthed title, this video teaches a great lesson on the value of contracts. Freelancers it’s a must watch.
  • Law for creatives – On a similar note, I found this great source for contracts on all kinds of creative services. Check it out.
  • What is your cost per wear – Kristi from enCircled provides a cost per wear calculator so you can see how much your clothes really cost. Genius.
  • Lime-basil sangria – Yep, I’m bookmarking another post I wrote on The Budget Socialite because I really love this recipe. Try it and let me know what you think.

Loving: This bionic ear came out of a printer but can go on your head. It’s official. Science fiction has become real life and I’m in awe.

Drooling Over: My obsession with beets continues. Not only have I been making beet and carrot juice on the regular but this summer beet stack recipe from Wendy See Wendy Do is going to happen in my house. Oh yes, it is!

Let’s get to know each other shall we? Here’s what I’m currently digging. What about you?

Listening to: My friend, Mike Rush made this awesome “Why I love Hip Hop” Playlist and it’s been in my regular rotation ever since. Tribe called quest, Jungle Bros and Black sheep? Umm…yes, please!


Loving:  Thug Kitchen. I love it so much I might actually explode. It’s hilarious.

Drooling Over: Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cranberries with Barley recipe. I have been ALL ABOUT Brussels Sprouts lately, so it’s right up my alley. I shall be making this soon.

Currently Digging – Feb 2013

Let’s get to know each other shall we? Here’s what I’m currently digging. What about you?

Listening to: I asked my facebook friends for their favorite love songs on Valentine’s Day and boy did they deliver! I’ve been listening to my Let me count the ways playlist on Spotfiy ever since. It’s a fun eclectic mix! There’s everything from Method Man + Mary J Blige to the Postal ServiceI even threw in a little 80s goodness.

Bookmarked: I’m a Jezzie through and through. For me Jezebel is required daily reading. Some of my favorite articles as of late have been: The article on the Package tour that will forever live in infamy, The one on Elizabeth Warren (heart her), and I love when they get straight to the point like in the article Cut the shit and vaccinate your kid. Half the fun is in the comments, so make sure you give them a gander. My fellow Jezzies are whip-smart, witty and they don’t mess around.

Loving:  This polka dot wrapping paper DIY from the House that Lars Built. It’s so cute and easy. Friends and family, your gifts will be spotted. Prepare yourselves.

BFF in my head: Olivia Pope. Everyone is obsessed with Scandal myself included. Liv seems to be able to fix everyone’s problems but her own. I can relate. Scandal is filled with lessons we should heed. I wrote a post on The Budget Socialite on this very topic. Check it out.
