Today’s TasteTV music video pick is by Dua Lipa, called “New Rules.”

The song was recently ranked as the official UK NUMBER 1 song and the first solo female #1 since Adele’s “Hello.”

The staccato beat is refreshing, with a repetitiveness that is catchy but also improvisational. The lyrics are a great match with the actual music video visuals, which show a love sick disenchanted woman learning the new rules of relationships and hookups from her various friends, and then eventually passing them on to others in need. The well synchronized dance routines are choreographed yet spontaneous, ranging in locales from a hotel bedroom, to the bathroom, to the hotel swimming pool.

The video filters and styles have a flashy nouveau tropical vibe that makes the viewers feel cool and hip, especially when seen with the multi-hued designer sunglasses worn by her diverse multi-ethnic ‘posse’ of advisers and friends.

In this video, the ladies literally walk on water. Once you start humming, “I’ve got rules, I’ve got rules,” you’ll find the Dua Lipa ear bug has been caught for this song. The rules are contagious.

She is currently on tour around Europe, Asia and the United States. We certainly look forward to seeing her act live!

Going to a food festival is always a great opportunity. Being able to test a new type of camera while there is basically icing on the cake. In this case, it was the Insta360 Nano. The Insta360 shoots pictures and HD video in 360 degrees. The images can be used in Virtual Reality (VR) goggles, as well as on sites such as YouTube.

A food festival like Eat Drink SF is the perfect place, because you have a wide variety of food and drink, and lot of people and places to capture.

We set up our camera at various partner tables around the event, and produced short 30 second 360 degree videos from each. The quality of the initial videos were impressive, although we have to admit that after editing, export, and upload to YouTube they did lose a fair amount of resolution.

If you couldn’t go, or even if you could, take a look at what we saw.

Sometimes TasteTV and the Chocolate Salon just want to have a little fun, and that’s why we made this faux trailer for a movie we might make someday: LAND OF THE CHOCOLATE GIANTS.

The idea is based on an science fiction television series from the 1960’s, called, “Land of the Giants.” A group of travelers arrive on a space ship to a world where everything is the same as their own, except it’s larger.

In our case, it’s larger, and in chocolate.

Many people love baked beans but stop eating them because of the “side effects” of the navy beans (haricots) that are often used in the recipes, or in the store-bought cans. But this year we finally said, “We want baked beans, darn it, we’re smart, and we’re going to make them out of black beans”.

Guess what? We did, and it turned out great! And super, super easy…

…and kind of embarrassingly simple, and fast.

BAKED BEANS WITH BLACK BEANS

2 cans of black beans (drained)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup of water
Dash of salt

Optional
Oil to sauté
Diced onions and cooked bacon pieces (cook first, add to sauce above while cooking)

DIRECTIONS

Combine sauce ingredients in sauce pan
Add beans
Cook sauce and beans over medium high for 10-15, making sure they are well mixed, and stirring occasionally to avoid sticking to pan

Exclaim that you made this from scratch, and be the kitchen hero

NYX and ShoeDazzle Curate Monochromatic Outfit Collections




Monochromatic can be a bit boring if you just have brown on brown on brown, or blue on blue on blue. But if you pair your selections with a keen eye, a lot of style, and a creative streak for nuances, you’ll find that you’ve got an outfit that is runway ready.

Celebrities are finding this to be the case. For example, celebs like Lucy Hale are known for rocking the monochromatic trend — pairing their lip shade with their shoe color.

Not to miss the trend, ShoeDazzle has teamed up with NYX to create a beauty-inspired curated monochromatic boutique that includes jeweled tones, electric color, and metallics that are easy to pair with seasonal beauty looks.
