i'm going green!

I'm going green with Green Tea ,that is, for my soul!

This past Saturday, I enjoyed the company of friends and the live music of Green Tea and the Soul Food Band at the Artmosphere Digital Cafe in Mt. Ranier, MD. What a time we had! The live band set the atmosphere right in the cafe and art gallery venue. I love Green Tea, a great friend of mine, that shares her stories of love and relationships and most importantly she stresses the message of loving yourself. She is a poet, singer and great story teller hailing from my neighborhood and the illustrious city of DC. We rocked to her music and vibed to a positive experience.

We not only had a great time, but one handsome guy in particular new that that night after the show, was the right mood and time to propose to his girlfriend. What an ending to a night of love! If you'd like to go green, in the music sense of that statement, check out Green Tea on myspace where you can check out her calendar and her music. Her CD is available for purchase now! Go ahead, have a cup of Green Tea.

I know that Green Tea is a fellow makeup junkie (I can't sing, what else would we have in common?? j/k), so she would appreciate this. If you'd literally like to be green beautifully and help save our earth, here are some environment friendly products for you:

*Nubar nail polish - organic nail polish (pictured in Sexy Red)

*Plant Love Botanical Lipstick by Cargo- shine and color in a biodegradable tube, but also plant the box for some spring flowers! Portions of the proceeds benefits St. Jude's Research Hospital.

Dang! I was gonna go to this but I just couldn't motivate myself to get outta the house Saturday. I really hate that I missed it now. Sounds like the show was off the hook.

Butta, I was feeling the same way. especially since i've been around when green tea's music list was in the making. I love my girl, but going all the way uptown on a rainy night wasn't the most appealing plan. However, I'm glad I did as I haven't heard her stuff in a while, and seeing her live is always a treat because she sings from the heart and everyone has a good time. Besides, I like to find out about these different venues around town. It was definitely worth it =) aww! I almost had a chance to meet you!
