Man, I swear the closer it gets to my birthday, the more things I lust after. Some are hoop dreams, and I never expect anyone to buy most of this stuff for me. However, to buy for myself….YES! I have been in love with Moschino for a long time (since the 90’s) I have obsessed over that belt forever (among other items). I enjoy that their designs can be dressed up or down and make a statement on their own. No need to over accessorize or over dress with the bags, belts or clothing.
I think that having unique statement pieces can go a lonnnng way in a wardrobe. Just make sure that they are timeless to you and that you would want to wear them for years to come. Be a repeat offender of the items you love! Here are my faves.
Ill be good to ya…….
You can get some! Beyonce is selling new merchandise for her self titled album. Some of the crewnecks and t-shirts have some of her most popular song titles and catchphrases from her album. They retail for $65 (damn Bey!) Check out my favorites below and cop at her shop HERE.
So along with fashion cooking is my other passion. Just like clothing my food has to look good as well as taste good. My mom once told me that cooking is 80% visual and that stuck with me forever. Pretty food is mandatory when I’m cooking. Anyway last night me and @PapiDrinksWine decided to make garlic crab a la Crustacean in San Francisco. Along with the crab we made roasted balsamic Brussels sprouts and smashed potatoes. IT. WAS. SO. GOOD. We also paired it with a white wine that just took the meal into another dimension.
Here’s a pic and the recipes below!
Here is the crab recipe: I did add a little bit of white wine and old bay to the butter mixture. HERE
For the Brussels Sprouts: I followed the chopping instructions but instead of frying I roasted them in the oven with salt, pepper, and olive oil with chopped red onion. 350 degrees for 20 mins. Then tossed it with balsamic vinegar 1/3 cup (you can use red wine vinegar too) 2TBS of honey, fresh pepper, garlic powder. I really just improvised off of THIS recipe.
And for the Potatoes we really just winged it. Boiled them, added salt, pepper, a small bit of cheddar and milk. we also didn’t break the potatoes all the way down since we both like texture.
Try it out and tell me what you think. This is great when you want to show off for someone. Swag!
No. I don’t play hockey, and barely know the rules. I have been to games and my high school had a team so I’m educated a lil bit. Nevertheless, I NEED one in my life. The endless possibilities of outfits that I can come up with with just one hockey jersey. Le sigh. Jeans, leggings, on it’s own as a dress, shorts just so many! My choices are below.
All are $179 and available on Shop.Nhl.com
Here’s some inspiration…….
Tamara Mellon is getting innovative by combining leggings, leather, and boots together. This is the “legging boot”; the idea was inspired by the thigh high boot. Mellon’s idea was to give the look of a thigh boot without the gap. So you can wear a long top or dress over it to give that look. They will cost you a smooth $1,995 if you are interested. I like the idea, however I like the sexy gap of skin between the boot and whatever you wear it with. I also like the idea. of this all in one idea. I wonder if other designers will swag jack the idea. Thoughts?

Timberland and Supreme have teamed up for this special edition release. At first glance they look like regular Timb’s. However upon closer inspection there are small details that set these apart from your regular old boots. The embossed snakeskin details and premium nubuck and leather are what makes these boots special. They are $180 and will be available 12/19. If you want them you better wake up early and stalk SupremeNYC.com because stuff sells out super fast on there.
Cop or Nah?
One of my fave songs on Beyonce’s album. Makes me want to put on something similar and twerk it for my imaginary boy toy. You have a boy toy? or girl you want to get something nice for and reap the benefits? Get this album.
Remember when I wrote the blog about the special edition can designed by Mychael Knight for Diet Coke? Well they SENT me the can and is so pretty. What a cool thing for them to do. Funny thing is every time I’m on a plane I order Diet Coke to drink. It’s tasty, less calories and no sugar. Winning! Get you some and #stayextrodinary

I love going to concerts. Being able to hear an artists music love and enjoy it with people who are just as excited is a good time to me. So this week I had the opportunity to see my my favorite rappers (amongst other things) Jay-Z.
I was sooooooooo juiced. BEYOND. Anyway when I go to concerts I get inspired to tweak my style based on how the music makes me feel. So it was natural to wear all black, Jays, gold chains, and leather. Done, done, and done. I love that Hanes Wal Mart sweatsuit it’s so necessary best purchase of December for SURE. My turban was designed by good friend @ellavatahjones. I had a great time, I love screaming my favorite songs at the top of my lungs especially Jay-Z songs. All in all a good night. My 2013 concert season had been great.
For reasons unknown I was awake at 4am. SO naturally I grab my phone. Checked twitter, instagram, and then my email (skipped facebook because I cannot bear to see yet another engagement it’s way too early) Anyway, in my inbox was an email from Supreme. Which is why I’m posting at 4 in the morning.
Supreme collaborated with Champion again and this time it’s not just a crew neck…..THEY HAVE SWEATPANTS TOO! And they are DOPE! I contemplated even posting about this because I didn’t want to up the hype but I did and you are welcome. This drop will be available December 12th and will come in four colorways. That is all you are getting out of me. For details visit http://www.SupremeNewYork.com
