Music Monday 114 :: Patrick Stump "This City" f/Lupe Fiasco

Music Monday 114 :: Patrick Stump "This City" f/Lupe Fiasco

I can't believe that, again, I'm not up to date on music. Thank goodness I have a TV now and satellite (I live and work in Cairo and for two years, I didn't have a TV) and American TV shows.

So I was watching The Tonight Show the other day and I looked up from the computer and saw this guy and heard this voice singing this song and I had to stop what I was doing to fully grasp all the goodness that is "This City." It's got this funky kinda vibe to it and his voice: just smooth. The bonus for me was the contribution from Lupe Fiasco on the video (he wasn't on The Tonight Show) because I love that thing called hip hop.

Music Monday 113 :: LMFAO "Party Rock Anthem"

Music Monday 113 :: LMFAO "Party Rock Anthem"

My apology for not posting a Music Monday blog post for the past few weeks. It's always on my mind on Sunday and Monday and then the next thing I know, it's Tuesday.

But have no fear Music Monday's not going anywhere.

As for this week's selection: this song is quite the party starter. Just upbeat and fun and danceable. So get to shufflin!

A Great Blend of Tea

Have you ever tried Rishi Tea's Organic Jamaica Red Rooibos? Well, neither had I until yesterday. I bought the tea, probably in April when I was in the U.S. For some reason, I haven't used it. My loss - or my gain depending on how you think of it.

I originally learned about the Rishi Tea brand when I asked a friend, who was coming to visit me in Cairo, to bring me some caffeine-free tea.

I thought that the Jamaica Red Rooibos would be really sweet because of the hibiscus, but it's a nice flavor combination - there's also some lemongrass. I like it because it's caffeine-free so it's great for the afternoon and evening.

Do yourself a favor and give it a try. Oh and FYI: I'm not paid to write about this product.
