: Listening to :


Listening to the beautiful album: Soldier of Love by the gorgeous SADE.
On my recent trip to Kauai, I went to Starbucks for my morning dose of coffee, and what did I see! Sade's new album! Oh I had to purchase it in the physical form. Just look at how amazing the cover is! Love her voice and her tone so much, and the lovely packaging for her album. I'm a sucker for packaging..hehe.

 When I was a little girl, I remember hearing the sweet sound of "Smooth Operator" lingering in the air, coming from the vinyl records that my Uncle Cornel would play in his home. One day I will get Sade on vinyl too and play it on the Technics turntables that my husband so badly wants. There's nothing like Sade on any day!

    I agree 100% had to get it too.. cheee!!

  4. Hello Merissa,
    I saw Sade on TV yesterday performing Soldier of Love. Divine. Just like your photos. I'm checking out your site a little bit right now and - again - I'm in awe. You are so talented. And actually, I've seen your blog on my imac screen at home and the pictures don't look that green... It will be hard to fix it as every screen is different.

    Have a lovely weekend.

  5. Lou I wish I could've caught her performance on TV! One day I hope to see her perform live! Thanks so much for your feedback from my forum post..haha! Thank goodness they don't look that green to you :) But it is true like you said, all screens are different.
    I'll have a great weekend, you do too!

    Aloha, Merissa.

  6. Sodapop: Thank you! :)
