Quote of the day

"I don't mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity. We are all born sexual creatures, thank God, but it's a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift. Art, real art, comes from it, everything."
— Marilyn Monroe

B-side Rough Cut Green Amethyst And Brass Necklace

Ken&Dana designed a natural bronze and amethyst necklace. unlike a lot of pieces of jewelry today it isn't extremely gaudy and extra, that makes this necklace a very particle necklace. it can be a day/night piece....and for a low 75 bones it is a great buy.

many women won't agree...but she who has the gold makes the rules...independent women get their own, i understand that you cant do it alone but really you have to stand on your own two feet too. the creature(whatever you're faith system) wont leave you to struggle forever...sadly i seriously agree heavily with red and meth.


natural weave

i'm sorry but unlike many black women i dont put much fake hair in my hair and when i do it doesnt stay long....so i found this HILARIOUS!!!


Nike Aqua Print Mesh Tank @Caliroots

mesh clothing scream late eighties but seriously, they are really partical for water sports and hot days. nike went so hard with this tank. even the bumblebee colorway is deadly. as shown in the pics this can be a great look with jeans and the right kicks.

“Kelis gave birth to Knight Jones last night on July 22nd around 9PM. Weighing a healthy 7.8lbs, the beautiful baby boy and his mother are doing wonderful. This was a natural birth and Kelis had been in labor since early Monday morning around 2AM. Knight was delivered in a NYC hospital with her mother and sister in the room." - statement from Kelis's people.

Blumarine Autumn/Winter 2009

so i'm a firm believer in color. its a very key point in fashion, art, and life. badge and black are cool but there are so many more colors in life. and i stumbled upon pics of the BLUMARINE autumn/winter line for 09 and i am truly inspired. i have over 50 pics but i'm only gonna to put up my favorite top seven(i love that number), and they were hard to do.

Janelle Monae: Here to save the world

Janelle Monáe was born in Kansas City, Kansas, moved to New York to pursue a career in the theatre at the American Musical Academy. Her original plan of life on the stages of Broadway changed and she decided to step into her love for music.

After moving to Atlanta, Ga, Monae met OutKast's Big Boi. She continued to down her own musical and founded the Wondaland Arts Society, a group of artists like herself. from there she would go on to make some appearances on the silverscreen in "Idlewild", she accompanied in the songs "Call The Law" and "In Your Dreams."

In the middle of 2007, Monáe was on her way to release,Metropolis, her first solo album. Her concept was to have a four suites or four part album, and it was to be released to the public via website and mp3 download sites, but when she signed to Bad Boy Records in late 2007, her plans took an about face. "Metropolis: The Chase Suite(Special Edition) debuted on August 12, 2008. Monae's music went over quite well with critics and fans.

Metropolis Suites II and III where supposed to drop in January of this year, but for some reason pushed back. But even with the hold on her music she received a Grammy nomination in the slot of Best Urban/Alternative Performance for her song "Many Moons". Monae is touring with NO DOUBT this summer.

clearly there's no stopping this young woman from her path to musical fame. kudos to you MS Monae for you lively performances, creative abilities, hoping to hear much more music from you.
