I’m With the DJ: DJ Rachael

HPNOTIQ recently caught up with Atlanta DJ Rachael to talk music, partying and the joys of living in Atlanta.


Weekly residencies: None at the moment but I guest DJ at some of the following hot spots: Halo Lounge (Atlanta), W Hotel Atlanta & San Francisco, Bliss Bar (San Francisco)


What makes for a good DJ?

A good DJ is doing more than just mixing and rocking a dance floor, they are making selections that tell a story and create an experience.


What is one of your fondest memories behind the 1s and 2s?

Opening up for one of the lady deejays that inspired me, DJ Colette, at my favorite club in Atlanta, Eleven50.


What other DJs would you love to work with and why?

I’d love to work with my friend and icon, Mark Farina. He mixes the best House music, rocks every dance floor and then transitions to smoky textured down-tempo through his famous Mushroom Jazz compilations. He’s always perfecting the balance and vibe. Continue reading

Brandi Glanville – the sexy ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian and bombshell addition to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — celebrated her newfound singleness at TAO Beach in Vegas this weekend.

Glanville posed for photos on the red carpet in a sexy Harmonie-inspired cover up. The mother of two put young women to shame when she flaunted her sexy beach bod in a teeny-weeny white bikini, while dancing with her girlfriends around the grand cabana.

Glanville and her friends toasted to being single and fabulous with Harmonie shots and was later surprised with a cake by Gimme Some Sugar.

DJ Kalkutta’s Top 10 Weekend Playlist

Headed out for the weekend? Tune into some tracks from DJ Kalkutta’s weekend playlist as you get ready to hit the town!

1. “Countdown” Beyoncé

The hardest working woman in showbiz is back with her 4th album much to the delight of her “stans”, and this is song another Beyoncé banger waiting to happen.  I love it when she talks about how hard her and Jay-Z ball.  If you also get a weird sense of joy from that then you will love this hard hitting song.

2. “Mr. Saxobeat” Alexandra Stan

As tends to happen with house music, this song blew up in Europe earlier this year and we are just now starting to obsess over it Stateside.  Alexandra Stan fills the void left by Crystal Waters these past 15 years.  If you’re a “Gypsy Woman” fan, then welcome to your new favorite song.

Luscious Hpnotiq Harmonie Lip Colors

So not only do Hpnotiq drinks taste great, but have you noticed how totally wearable the colors can be for makeup? Particularly Harmonie; it makes for the perfect lip color no matter your skin tone and you’re guaranteed to look hot while sipping your favorite Harmonie cocktail.

To get long lasting lip color, work in layers. First begin by gently exfoliating your lips (rubbing your toothbrush over your lips works) to remove any dead skin. Next apply a lip balm or primer to help smooth over any fine lines, then take a lip pencil in a color that closely matches your lip color using it to line and fill in the lips. Apply lipstick and optionally a coat of matching gloss on top. Even as your lip color fades, layering helps to ensure you still have a stain of color as the night wears on. Continue reading
