The BoifromIpanema Disney Diaries: #DisneylandVineMeetup

It's crazy to think that a free app on our phones could unite so many people from so many places and walks of life.  It all started about a year ago when the Vine app was launched and it caught on like a wildfire.

Over time, we Viners established a community and it wasn't long before we were planning to meet up; and what better place to meet than the happiest place on earth? Disneyland!!!!!!!!

People showed up from all over: Maryland, Arizona, Washington, ENGLAND (wth?!) and all different parts of California.  

It was grerat to hang out with cool new people and reconnect with old firends (Maya of and I got to hang out all weekend!!-- you can check out here recap here)

I guess if you're gonna meetup and hangout with people for the first time, there is no better icebreaker than seeing them scream like a ten year old girl on Splash Mountain. haha.

In the end a total of 22 viners showed up to share in the meetup madness. 

There was so many laughs, lots of eating, new Disney memories made and tons of Vining!

For more videos and pictures you can search the hashtag #disneylandvinemeetup on Vine and Instagram! 

Leave me a comment below and let me know what your favorite Disney Memories are or if you've ever met up with internet friends!

Música Monday: Us "No matter where you are"

Wow! Has everyone fully recovered from last night's Grammys?

Seriously, that was one of the most solid award shows I have seen -- and when it comes to music award show....I'm a total junkie!--

From Beyoncé's opening number, I knew the show was gonna be a banger!!!

I love how the producers always merged current artists with legends!

Robin Thicke and Chicago, Pharrell with Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder, Blake Shelton and Willie Nelson, Mackelmore and Madonna! I was just totally in awe....

All of the fusions were great too.

Kendrick Lamar with Imagine dragons gave an amazing performance... Like AMAZING.
Metallica (<3 a="" beautiful.="" concert="" dark="" gave="" grand="" just="" lang="" layer="" nbsp="" ne="" on="" out="" p="" piano="" pulled="" rich="" so="" song="" that="" the="" was="" which="" with="">
Pink can seriously do no wrong!  She gave a fantastic aerialist performance, THEN did some acro, THEN put on heels and a skirt all whilst singing LIVE??????


Oh and let's not forget my FAVORITE duet of the night. Carole King and Sara Bareilles singing whilst playing those beautiful grand pianos!!!

but I digress..

My choice for this Música Monday is a band that I personally discovered on Vine (follow me on Vine @boifromIpanema *wink wink*) known simply as "Us".  

 Husband and wife duo Michael Alvarado and Carissa Rae recently released their sophomore album "No matter where you are" in November of 2013 and I have not stopped listening to it since.

Its definitely a chill album with smooth vocals and R&B references.

Take a listen for yourself and let me know what you think :D

You can use the Spotify playlist below, and if you don't have Spotify, I'd definitely recommend you download it! It's free and you can stream millions of FULL ALBUMS!!!!


May a little dose of music brighten your Monday and boost your week!
