We all know inspiration can come from a myriad of sources. One that has been of particular importance to me recently has been my music. I've always relied heavily on my ipod to get me from point A to point B or even simply from waking up to making coffee. It is my elixir of life (behind coffee of course) and in New York that has never been more true. Riding the subway can be fun and you can people watch and eavesdrop on random but sometimes ever so interesting conversations but sometimes when it's early and your body is screaming at you to go back to sleep because it's cold and human beings weren't mean to survive this kind of weather (otherwise we would have fur everywhere) music is that source to influence our mind and souls in ways that only sound waves can.

As you regular readers know by now Queen B has been a powerful inspiration source for me especially upon my move to the big apple. After seeing her performance at the opening of the Grammy's I felt the need to create a playlist that would make me feel like a bad ass, powerful, sexy, dominating, ready-to-take-over-this-city bitch. Please note that when I say bitch I don't mean it as an insulting slur but as an empowering, strong independent woman. Some feminists may disagree with this use of the word but I guess we will just have to agree to disagree. That said below you will find my Bitch playlist and hopefully it will give you the empowering confidence it gives me and may it make your commute to work transform from a drudge into an exhilarating adventure. The outfit is from a day last week I was feeling especially bitchy; fox mask because why the hell not ;)
