Hey RockIts!

Prom night is quickly approaching. The Cinderella moment is almost here! It’s time to begin preparation for prom. It’s my senior year and my excitement cant be contained.

I’ve been trying on some of the most beautiful gowns just to get a feel for that magical night, though I had considered whether to have my gown made or bought off the shelf. Decisions, decisions… But, the key to all this wonderful madness is to be realistic and only buy what your money can afford.

Here are a few ideas to help make prom- planning a little easier:

Pick out your prom dress and make appointments at least 3 weeks before your prom date (hair, make-up, nails pedicures, hair removal)

Order boutonniere for your date

Plan your night with friends (hotel reservations, after- prom parties/plans etc)

Dinner reservations can be tight so call ahead

Make sure your date has booked the ride

Whiten your teeth for the perfect prom smile (Crest White Strips really work!)

Sign a pledge not to drink alcohol or use drugs, or at the very least be safe and have lots of fun

Take lots of pictures

Oh, and be fab!!!

Hey Rockits!

Spring is definitely right around the corner! Birds are chirping, flowers are blossoming and colors are busting out! It’s time for colors, colors…and more colors.

A fab look for the spring is color block. It’s a fun and expressive style that’s great for swim suits and dresses for those peaceful (and not so peaceful) walks on the beach during the day or even while shopping (an awesome way to brighten up the day).

Pastels! They are a must for the sweet and soft look of the spring. One day you’re the girl next door, the next you’re simply chic. This spring I’m rockin’ a bit on the wild side, prints on prints on prints. It’s a lovely addition to every girl’s spring collection! With complementary colors and a bit of imagination the combination of different always has the okay in my book. Hmmm…. Pastels are blooming color options spring 2012! Mint greens, orange and blues! Perfect! Stand out with confidence and boldness in one or two of these colors!

Shoes of course are at the top of my list, because they bring every detail and stitch together. Plus, I simply love shoes. My latest addiction has been chunky, bold and fab Jeffery Campbell’s. A girl’s closest friend! Don’t think twice! These are young, hot and anything in between; styles for every look and design possible! If you’re looking for to spice simple outfit, this is the way to go! (And with spring around the corner, you ladies should definitely stock up on Jeffery Campbell’s FIRST! =) )

Ambitious and adorable, Ikea Roxi is causing some serious head- bopping with her bubbly pop song “Mirror.” PYNK got the chance to catch up with Ikea to find out what it’s like to be young, black and talented as well as what it’s like to grow up black in a Jewish community. Check out what she had to say:

PYNK: Do you have any kind of hidden talents other than singing?

IR: Yes ive been playing the alto saxophone since I was in 4th grade, I’m very nice with that and I just started the piano a year ago so I ‘m still learning piano and acting, singing, dancing- well singing isn’t really a hidden talent.

PYNK: What’s your most memorable b-day moment?

IR: On my 18th birthday I actually had my song played on the radio it was fabulous and I had the release of my single “Mirror” on 92Q that’s Q in Baltimore, Maryland. We had a brunch at Milan Restaurant which is downtown Baltimore and we also continued to party at Mustang Alley.

PYNK: What are you afraid of?

IR: Not really anything, I would say I’m afraid of heights a little bit that’s about it, I haven’t really faced anything that I’m just terrified of. I enjoy roller coasters but I just dont like heights such as like rocking climbing or anything.

PYNK: Do you have a boyfriend or any love interests right now?

IR: No. I’m really focused on my career right now, I’m not really interested in dating right now.

PYNK: What’s your ideal type of guy?

IR: The type of guy who is fun, funny, outgoing, someone like my dad just really calm but still has an interesting side and I like style, a lot of style.

PYNK: What part of Baltimore do you live in?

IR: I grew up in Pikesville, MD, it’s more of a Jewish community but it was a great experience for me.

PYNK: Do you feel, as a black woman, that you had to leave that area to fully come into yourself or do you feel like you were still able to flourish completely there?

IR: I definitely became more aware of a city life and what’s really, what people are really doing. Like [my jewish neighborhood] had different rules but I felt like one I came out of that community I did learn [about] myself before and I did blend from being [immersed] in more of a city life.

PYNK: Do you feel like growing up in a Jewish community left you somewhat unprepared for dealing with an urban setting, like what was it like adjusting?

IR: I didn’t really have to adjust, growing up in a Jewish community they help you be comfortable with who you are so going into an urban area you’re more comfortable going into an urban setting because Jewish people are more accepting of whO you are and then you just have that self- esteem that helps you in the urban.

PYNK: Who are the top 5 artists that you would want to work with?

IR: Definitely Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Drake and I love Chris Brown.

PYNK: How would you define your music, persona in a few words?

IR: My music is just so dang awesome, it’s just a great feeling when you hear it, I love it and when I’m recording it – if I don’t feel great about it then it’s not something I want to pursue but so far my music has been a great feeling to everyone.

PYNK: If you had like an ultimate purchase as a baller what would it be?

IR: My ultimate purchase is a yacht, that’s just something that i find, something you can just sail away [in], you can travel so I’d like to get a yacht and just enjoy the water, I love being around water.

New talent Ikea Roxi is emerging as a budding singer representing her hometown of Baltimore, MD, home of Dru Hill and Mario. The eighteen-year-old is making a splash with her bubbly pop record "Mirror Mirror."

Ikea takes a piece from Snow White, requesting her mirror answer a question about a promising suitor.

In tune with the rhythmic dance production from King Midas, Roxi's catchy chorus quickly becomes a sing-along. Don't be surprised when you find yourself singing, "Mirror Mirror on the wall/ can you show me how i feel/i want to see if i love him/i want to see if i love him/i just want to look at my heart take a peak."

Bio

Baltimore native Ikea Roxi released her debut single “Mirror” last year to much adulation. Following in the musical tradition of Charm City music pioneers Billie Holiday, Tupac Shakur and Dru Hill, the eighteen-year-old is ready to take the next step towards stardom.
“I was so excited when I heard my song being played on the radio for the first time,” says Ikea. “I felt as though it was being heard around the world.” Produced by King Midas, the B-more music man constructed the hyperkinetic “Mirror” with the sonic feel of playful Euro-disco master-mixed with street beats.
“Ikea can be playful, but in the studio she is very serious about her music,” Midas says. “At the same time, she is very cool and humble.” Keeping “Mirror” grounded in the groove, Ikea Roxi has a voice that is simultaneously pure and dramatic as she sings about the teenage angst and first loves.
“I had heard some of Midas’ music with other artists and I knew that I wanted to record with him. Working with Midas has helped me become more confident as an artist.”
Currently attending Western High School, where she is a senior, she says, “I took acting classes for many years and much of what I learnt has helped me with my singing.” Ikea also studied at the Baltimore School of the Arts/TWIGS Program for five years. “To get my point across in a song, I have to act it out as well as connect with the audience.”
In addition, Ikea co-wrote “Mirror” with lyricist Brian Gibbs. “I enjoy working with Ikea, because she is always willing to put in the time needed to make the track perfect,” Gibbs says. “She has a positive attitude and works hard in the studio.”
While Ikea can also play piano and saxophone, she says, “Songwriting is a skill I began developing on my own to prove to my parents just how serious I was about being in the music business. The night before I went to the studio for the first time, I finished writing my first song.”
Scribbling her poetic words in notebooks, she says, “Right now I have about three notebooks full of songs, all material I’ve been writing for the last few years.” Ikea also worked with the same team on her next single “Dance for a Lover,” which will be released later this year.
The rising star also put her dramatic talents to the test when she filmed a video for “Mirror” in the summer of 2011. “It was awesome,” she says of the three-day shoot filmed at various locations throughout Baltimore. Styled by Natalie Graham, who has worked with Faith Evans and Floatry, she also owns the Dollhouse Boutique where parts of the video were shot.
While Ikea Roxi is new to the music scene, singing professionally has been a dream since was a little girl listening to Beyonce on the radio. “The first song I really liked was ‘Crazy in Love,’ which I used to sing around the house all the time,” she laughs “It was then that discovered that singing was really what I wanted to do.”
Additionally, Ikea also listens to old school artists Natalie Cole and cites Michael Jackson and Prince as her all-time favorite. “I also watch Tina Turner concert videos so I can study her performance technique,” she confesses. Confident in her ability to work the crowd, Ikea recently opened for contemporary soul man Trey Songz at a sold-out concert in Pennsylvania.
“At first it was a little crazy, because one of the other opening acts had gotten booed off the stage, but the audience was accepting of me.”
Raised in the Baltimore suburb of Pikesville, the teenager is a middle child with two brothers. “My brothers, as well as the rest of my family, are very supportive of my singing career. I hope to one day make them very proud.” Graduating from high school this spring, Ikea plans to continue with her education while also pursuing music. Her parents Arthur and Tonya R. Turner through their company Turner Entertainment manage Ikea.
With her feet planted firmly on the ground while her voice continues to soar, the talent young vocalist is currently completing her first full-length project. Contributing to the musical legacy of Baltimore, the gifted singer-songwriter Ikea Roxi is ready to take her talent worldwide.
