Totally in love with this dude, Yuksek.
I might be a little late on this, but whatevs.
Haling from Reims, France, Yuksek has crafted some dirty ass remixes of songs og by Mika, The Kaiser Chefs, and Ghostface Killah. His new album, “Away From the Sea” features the love of my life, Amanda Blank, on the track “Extra Ball”. His other tracks are equally wonderful, and totally dance worthy!
CHECK HIM OUT!
below is the link to the actual video, since i cant find any sites to embed it in here. 😦
By now, everyone knows that my favorite site to shop at is Karmaloop. I’m always promoting the shit out of it and I’ve been shopping there for like 7 years. It definitely will always be my favorite store. I’m even a karmaloop rep now, which means I have my own special code that anyone can use for a 20% discount. Use my rep code at checkout: JN31115
Anyway, now Karmaloop is selling some really dope art and toys by Lot F Gallery.
This stuff is so ill though.

i want. i want. i want. i want.
Last night Carissa, Shamsa, Marielle, and I went to Nat’s Tattoo in Islip to pay a visit to tattoo artist, Edwin. I’ve been itching for tattoo work for so long. Carissa got her first tattoo. Shamsa and I basically forced her into it. It came out so nice! She got a rose with purple designs all around it. Sounds pretty simple, but it seriously looks so good! I don’t have a picture of it yet, but I’ll edit this when I do. I opted for a purple diamond on the middle finger of my right hand. It’s basically a “fuck you to marriage”, since it’s on my right hand’s middle finger. I’m obsessed with it and I can’t stop looking at it. And for such a small, simple tattoo, it came out fucking dope!
I cannot stress enough how amazing Edwin’s work is. Get over to Nat’s Tattoo.
So, I think that everyone under the sun should go and get tattooed by my dude Edwin (aka Tyler) over at Nat’s tattoos. Hands down, he’s done some of the most amazing tattoo work that I’ve ever seen. Word is Bond (hahaha). Seriously though, I’m about to post a few pictures of his work and I dare you to tell me that he is not insanely talented. He definitely will be my tattoo artist from now on (as well as my Kyley).
See him at:
177 Islip Ave
631-650-1980 (ask for Edwin)
tell him Jess sent you.
The Lipstick Diaries posted this on their blog, but it wasn’t a hit for them.
I’m sorry ladies, but I have to disagree. I adore this and i would so rock it. but then again, i rock a lot of things that people think are ugly. ha.
This weekend was a fun one. On Friday, was our Friday the 13th party at Monty’s house. The theme was supposed to be villains & victims, but not many people dressed up. I went all out, since I missed Halloween. I dressed up as a dead Fafinette (french graffiti artist, Fafi’s creations). Ava was Cruella Deville. Marielle was a dalmation. and Guns was a hotdog hahaha. My girl Ebz came out from the BX too. Always fun to chill with her.
Here are some flicks from that:
On Sunday, Ava had a birthday soiree at Scudder Beach. It was a lot of fun. Filled with good people, good food, wine, & fishing. Also got to see one of my favorite people in the world, Devin. That ginger boy is my heart! ❤
Tomorrow, Felt 3 drops. I believe this one is “A Tribute to Rosie Perez”, which is awesome. Love Rosie Perez. I’m glad another Felt album has dropped. Slug & Murs are a perfect duo. They sound great together.
Also, stay tuned because a few friends and myself are starting a theme band soon! cannot wait.
“Philadelphia-based filth-rock collective Sweatheart specializes in raunchy club/pop with titles like “Fingerbangin'” and “Dreambeaver.” Formed by visual artists Thom Lessner and Rose Luardo in 2005, Sweatheart’s debut album, So Cherri, was released on Tone Arm Records in the summer of 2006. The band further included Amanda Blank by this time, along with their backing band “The Toddlers.” ~ James Christopher Monger, All Music Guide
I’ve loved this band for awhile now. They’re so great. Dress-up bands are great fun and me and some of my broads actually have a project lined up… but that’s a secret for now.
Sweatheart has fun, dancey, vulgar songs. “Finger bangin'” being my favorite. They’ve always got great costume themes too.
Especially love that my future ex-girlfriend, Amanda Blank (rapper/singer), is in this band. she’s so talented. When I saw her live, i was in love. prettiest lady ever, in my opinion.
Here be some flicks and videos.
i miss brooklyn.
I’ve always been enamored by this house, “Broken Angel”, in Clinton Hill.
How sick is it, really?
i wanna go inside.
i wanna live there.
I love my best friend, Lauren aka Sneak, more than anyone in the whole world. We’ve known each other since we were 12, and she’s been there for me for literally all of my downfalls since then. Ups, downs, in betweens. This girl is my life.
so, i need tattoo work. specifically need my candyland sleeve worked on. it’s time to pay a visit to my Kyley soon!
she does great work, I suggest you get your ink done by her. You won’t be disappointed.
Another thing I want to do, is get extensions again.
One of my best friends, Shamsa, does them… so I’ll be forcing her to do so in the near future. I get so bored with my hair and need to change it constantly. Shamsa cut it into an asymmetrical style about a month ago, and it already grew out. my hair grows like a damn weed. After I let it grow for awhile, I think I’ll do something like this to it:
and that concludes this random and asinine update.
How dope is this?
all wearing Nars products.
“Crank Heart” -Xiu Xiu (one of my favorite songs ever!)
“Xiu Xiu (pronounced “shew shew”) is an experimental band originally from San Jose, California and currently based in Oakland, California. The band is named after the main character of the 1998 Chinese film Tian yu (a.k.a. Xiu Xiu: The Sent-Down Girl).”
I highly suggest getting into all of their music. It’s definitely not for everyone, but for those who it is for, it will blow your mind!
