We called spoken word poet Sarah Kay an articulate force of nature in our Spring ’12 issue but you don’t receive the ultimate punch of her words until you hear and see her perform it for yourself.
The 23-year-old NY native, with her head full of curls and sunny dimpled grin, sucks us in the moment she speaks. She’s been a hit at 2011′s TED Conference and her hits keep coming. Check it out:
Hope her words leave you feeling inspired today!
I’m a fan of food tours.
I get to indulge in my absolute favorite activity in the world — eating — but not feel so guilty about it because walking around to get to the places to eat justifies the pig out. It’s also fun meeting new people on the tour and discovering more about places I’d normally just drive to.
Six Taste’s food tours give you all of that satisfaction and more.
The other day, I went out for a night on the town wanting to dance. My companion and I were itching to get jiggy with it but we were in a city where we weren’t sure if there were any good dancing places.
After a delicious dinner, he and I, dressed to the nines (okay, maybe 8-and-a-halfs), took a walk through the main street of the city. It was a lively street with people bustling in and out of restaurants, parking to get to the movies on time, and waiting at stop signs for friends. However, none of the establishments looked like it would make for a good dance floor.
Finally, we heard distant Mexican music playing in the corner of one of the blocks.
We knew our Spring cover girl Hannah Simone was hot hot HOT.
We also knew the former UN officer with two college degrees was a smart cookie.
So it’s only fitting that we share some of her hot photos and smart witticisms with you.
“My family’s said to me from the beginning, ‘People are always going to tell you to pick what you want to be when you grow up. You take that and throw it out the window, that’s garbage. People are complicated and we love many things and we’re passionate about many things. You can be a human rights activist and also be doing these comedy plays in your community and that’s OK. All those things are a part of who you are and you can love them equally.’ — Hannah Simone, on how her parents encouraged her varied interests
Okay, so we’re maybe a teensy weensy bit tired of talking about Jeremy Lin, the 23-year-old New York Knicks point-guard who linfiltrated America with Linsanity.
But look! Audrey Magazine landed on Wall Street Journal talking about Jeremy Lin!

It shocks us still that 48-year-old Whitney Houston has passed away. Though her last few years have been marked by substance abuse, drunken performances and a mess of a love life, Whitney’s golden years cannot be forgotten. This was the voice who gave us classics including, “I Will Always Love You,” “How Will I Know,” and “Saving All My Love For You.” Whitney also inspired a generation of balladeers and divas — everyone from Beyonce to Christina Aguilara.
Though it was Jennifer Hudson who sang the tribute for Whitney at this year’s Grammy’s, our favorite tribute has been 17-year-old Filipino singer Charice Pempengco’s tear-strewn “I Will Always Love You.” Capturing Ms. Houston’s subtle, emotive, melismatic (melismas are those quick runs up or down the scale on one syllable) style best, Charice reminds us of the legacy one woman has left behind.
