Out And About: A-Morir X Supra Skytop Women’s Sneaker Launch

On Tuesday June 26, 2012 I, along with my good friend stylist Ashley L. Dalton, was at The Wooly in NYC celebrating the launch of the bejeweled eyewear queen, and my former boss, Kerin Rose's sneaker launch with Supra!

Kerin Rose, creator of A-morir, and Supra collaborated to create the first ever Skytop for Women for the skateboarder brand. While sipping on complimentary drinks like the "Razzle" or "Dazzle", DJs Nick Catchdubs and Radio Rose spun the tunes. At every turn you could see someone of budding superstardom, such as DJ Jasmine Solano, fashion stylists Valissa Yoe and Omar Alexander, choreographer (think 'Beyonce Single Ladies') Jonte and more!

Shoegasm: ASOS Destiny High Top sneakers

I'm not the biggest sneaker head, but I can definitely appreciate a good pair of "kicks" when I need to. The other night, while surfing the web, I cam across some sneakers that made me want to forsake my Sallie Mae payments for this month.

These ASOS Destiny High Top sneakers are retailing for $58.00 and come in three fluorescent colors.

After lusting for a few seconds, I finally reasoned with myself that walking around in these beautiful babies is NOT worth a messed up credit score... Damn me and my responsible attitude!


What do you guys think? Are you a sneaker or heel girl?

Michael Jackson: 3 Years Feels Like Yesterday...

This is a reblog. It will be reblogged and updated every year.

It's been 3 years since the LEGENDARY Michael Jackson made his way to a better place. There's STILL not a day that goes by that I don't listen to an MJ song. I fell in love with Michael the moment I heard him and that's never stopped. His passion for life, desire to make a change, and drive to be the best inspired so many. I loved him like I knew him, but in some strange way, I think we did know him.

My friend and I still hopes he is alive somewhere... relaxing. I'll keep believing that :-).

My June 2012 "MyGlam Bag" Review

I am so glad I give honest reviews! The last MyGlam Bag review I did, for the May 2012 month, was not so pretty (rightfully so). I said I would get one more bag, before I decided to keep it or chuck it, and that day came a few days ago...

The Weekly Wrap-up

Weekly Wrap-up! *Does the "Uh Oh" dance like Oprah*
  • I went to Cosi (with an awesome friend of mine) and we had S'mores! She insisted and I'm glad she did, it was yummy!
  • I went to Harlem and saw the above mural painted on the wall... I went to  college in Harlem for three years and never really noticed it until this past week. It had words like "Hope" "God" "Blessings" and "Resilience" on random spots of the mural; all words that definitely represent the history of Harlem... Coincidentally, Justin Beiber was a half block away at the Apollo. Girls were lined up for blocks!
  • I found my new favorite yogurt: Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt w/ honey. It's DELICIOUS! 
  • For the last 2 weeks, I've been kind of obsessed with Blow Pops. The green apple or cherry ones to be exact. SO GOOD! I'm sure this phase will pass, so i'm just enjoying it for now.
  • Saturday was super busy for me. I got my hair done and went to FOUR parties... I was BEAT on Sunday. The picture of my friend and I is from Party number 3. She looked super cute! I'll give you an outfit break down below.
  • I tried these ankle skinnies on at F21 and I actually liked them. I am determined to buy and wear on pair of neon bottoms this summer, wish me luck *Giggle*
  • I'm giving you a sneak peek of another piece of eyewear from my line. Thoughts?

Now, in other random news: I took off my stiletto nails and got a manicure... my baby fingers are back :-( 

It's a sad day y'all... 

*Giggle* Just kidding! Well... kind of!

New Video: Kat Rodriguez "Mockery"

Eyewear done by me!

A few weeks ago I mentioned the video shoot that I did with the recording artist that I co-manage, Kat Rodriguez. Well, the glamorous music video for her title track, “Mockery”, released a few days ago! The song is one of growing up in Bronx, New York with dream’s of becoming a superstar! Throughout the video, you see her transition from “Rags to Riches” to a success.

Kat Rodriguez (aka Kat) is an incredible saxophonist, singer, songwriter, arranger, and composer with an accomplished resume. As a saxophonist in Beyonce Knowles’ all female band, she has toured the world with one of the best! Kat released her debut album on May 22, 2012. The mix of R&B and Pop is one that is missing in the music industry right now. The use of live band instruments stays true to Kat’s Jazz influence, but with catchy hooks and up-tempo beats, the listener is bound to get up and dance!

50 Cent On Oprah's OWN Network

I love my grandmother, my grandfather. My grandma, I’ve always had a connection with her. I used to sit there and rub on her feet, even paint her toenails.

We all know that Oprah loves her some Jay-Z, but over the weekend, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson became the second rapper to sit down and chit chat with the talk show Queen on her OWN network.

Well, when I heard about this interview, I was a little shocked. "Fiddy" Cent has always been vocal about his opposition to Oprah, he even named his dog 'Oprah' (who Oprah referred to as "The bitch named Oprah"... pure comedy!). He always felt that she wasn't very supportive of the hip-hop movement and she didn't really have an impact on the people he made music for.

During their sit down at 50's grandmother's house (how cute!), Oprah and 50 talked in depth about 50′s childhood, life and love. I think the part that really tugged at my heart strings was when he teared up as he stood in his grandmother’s basement and reflected on the loss of his mother... y'all know how I feel about my mother *TEARS*

When I finished watching both clips, I couldn't help but want more! I like listening to him speak, it's so not what you would expect! I actually met 50 once at a XXL magazine shoot and from that moment my perception of him changed. His aura, his personality... everything is so light and positive! He was so tall and intimidating but when he opened his mouth to say hello to me, he was so gentle. I froze up and couldn't speak for a second *Giggle* He said "Aww, she's shy!" He had to grab me up to give me a hug...
Best. Hug. Ever.

The Weekly Wrap-up

Weekly Wrap-up time!
  • I spent Saturday night in Atlantic City. Although I was apprehensive about going overnight (because I don't go to gamble, I go to shop!), I ended up having a great time!
  • There was a carnival on the boardwalk and I got on some rides with my god-sister. I'll do a post on that comedic melodrama soon *Giggle*
  • I had my first "White Russian" ^___^ Won't be my last! 
*No drinking if you are under age kids! 
  • I also had Johnny Rockets for the first time... again, won't be my last time! Next time, i'll actually try one of their famous milkshakes.
  • I cooked dinner for my mom and friend (who had me slaving doing her hair). I made Shrimp, green beans, yellow rice, and broccoli. It was a hit!
  • Those shades are also going to be in my line. Get excited folks!
  • It's not summer in the hood if you don't have an Italian Ice... from a Spanish lady on the corner of your block! Had my first of many for the summer, Bubblegum and Blueberry=YUM!

Now, in other random news: I found out this morning that my boo, Matthew Mcconaughey, is now married to his girlfriend of 6 years (Camilla Alves). 

It's a sad day y'all... 

*Giggle* Just kidding! Well... kind of anyway. Congrats to the new couple! All I know is, I'd better get a move on Ed Westwick (a.k.a Chuck Bass) quick! These men are being snatched up like flies in a venus fly trap!

Have a lovely week!

Need An Example Of Great Daily Affirmations?

Well let 4 year old Jessica give you an example...

"I can do ANYTHING GOOD, better than ANYONE!"

Isn't she the cutest!!! I spotted this on Maria from Hym and Her's Facebook page a few days ago. Don't you just wish you had the optimism of a 4 year old sometimes? Sometimes that's all we really need to do the impossible!

I think I'll be putting Jessica's affirmations into practice... Maybe even while standing on the sink too!

The Weekly Wrap-up

Weekly Wrap-up time!

Last week was a pretty quiet week...
  • Remember how I'd been complaining about my bad hair days (here and here)? Well, I got that fixed! A sister got a new weave!
I believe Shania Twain said it best, "Man! I feel like a woman..."
  • I found a small stud and put it on my nose just to be silly... then I looked in the mirror and realized I liked it. When I was younger, I really wanted to pierce my nose. What do you think?
  • I went to South Street seaport in Manhattan one beautiful day last week. Can you believe it was only my second time down there? It really is a nice spot for the summer time.
  • While at South Street, I found a Dippin' Dots machine. Needless to say, I was in heaven.
  • I actually spent a lot of my free time in bed... While there I realized how important it is to have a bedroom that felt like a sanctuary. Next to the bathroom (don't ask), the bedroom is the most calming place in a house (to me). FYI: That is not my bed, however my future bed will look possibly look like this.
  • I went to see Marvel's The Avengers... Totally worth it! Scarlett Johanson is still my girl crush and The Hulk made it on to my Favorite People In The World list.
  • I made those black glasses too, i'll be debuting my line of accessories soon! I'm excited!

Have a lovely week!

GWAAN Nail Rings

I spotted these over at MTV Style and instantly fell in love.
I'm a bit of a nail art freak and I love when people think outside of the box. These GWAAN nail triangle rings come in a set of three and costs only $8! There are a host of other nail rings, but this one caught my eye because it's definitely bank account friendly. They're perfect for those of you who work in professional settings during the weekday and can't go wild, now you practically have removable nail art!

They are kind of sexy... I'd definitely wear them.

What do you think? Too much?
