i keep listening to this today, for some reason… so here:
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. 😦
I’m getting this damn dress to wear on NYE!
i’m so in love with it.
Tripp NYC is the word.
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.
check them out, for sure.
here are my favorites:
and of course, here’s another wish list.

i want. i want. i want. i want.
Ugh, Rafe Spall. This dude is capital B, Banging! I adore him. He can SO get it. Plus, he has an english accent, which automatically gives you 48957489328 cool points. I need to go visit my cousin in London (she’s currently attending Oxford… lucky ass broad), and stalk the shit out of him. Or I at least need to date his identical twin. Peep him in Hot Fuzz, Green Street Hooligans, and he has a bit part in Shaun of the Dead (he was a little fatty in that one, but i still love him). He’s definitely one of the few people who would make me star-struck. he’s a fine man. yum.
(mm lookin all dapper)
“ As Hellz continues to grow in the fashion industry, collaborating with some of the industries biggest moguls Hellz is extremely proud to present the Hellz x Reebok collaboration shoe, dropping Friday, November 27th.
This highly anticipated model features a fold-down flap which Hellz has utilized as a focal point with pixelated images on a clean black perforated leather upper. It comes with optional shoe string colors (black and neon yellow), stud detailing and a punk rock attitude to go along with it. Creating a bond between the women’s brand and one of the sneaker world’s timeless leaders has become a stepping stone for Hellz to branch off into footwear.
Although there is such a high demand for the collaboration, the shoe will only be available to the public at select retailers, as well as the Hellz soon-to-drop online shop. If purchased through the Hellz online shop, customers will receive a special gift.
Hellz is widely known for providing style savvy women with unique attire, and enthralling collaborations. The Hellz x Reebok shoe, being one, is sure to not disappoint; creating a much more enticing reason to wait for Black Friday.”
these are too sexy!
So, I really despise wearing watches. I just think they’re obnoxious and get in the way, but I pretty much need this:
I wish it was in purple though.
Available at Extra Butter!
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.
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.
How dope is this?
