My Best Friend of The Moment

While I was in Target, I decided to go to the beauty department... And I totally remembered about how much I loved the Maybelline New York: Volume Seduction! I tried it at Fashion U cause they gave free samples and it really did make my lips fuller! My lips aren't small but aren't completely full either. My top is smaller than my fat bottom lip, lol. Of course, I'd love to have fuller lips! I purchased the shade Seductively Nude as seen on Adriana Lima on the advertisement. I recommend it to any girl who wants fuller lips! It works! For $4.29, you can't beat that!

I need to stock up just in case if they discontinue it.

Kanye's 808 & Heartbreak

Click here to listen to the AMAZING "808 & Heartbreak".
*you must click on the album cover picture & all the songs will show up.

I got the e-mail around 6pm and I've been waiting ever since. I am so looking forward to
 purchasing this album. It's incredible! It's very different from his rapping style but it's such a good change for him. It suits him well and he does a good job at it. Make sure to listen to the entire album! Some of the songs that got leaked have been changed and updated.

My favorite songs are:
Robocop, Street Lights, Bad News, Pinocchino Freestyle, Amazing & Heartless.

Here is the retail packaging for the album.
This has always been my favorite picture of Kanye and his lovely mother.
After winning several Grammys in 2006.

This hit me when I saw it.. Ms.Donda West, I know you're so proud of your son. :(

Prettiest Face: Arlenis Sosa

Honestly, I'd be more interested and intrigued to fashion magazines if I saw women who looked a little more like me. I bet if there were a more diversity in magazines, their sales wouldn't be as low. People can relate more to it when it's someone who look like them. As a Hispanic, I'm interested in seeing Hispanics in magazines, American soap operas, etc. 

I'm currently admiring the Dominican Arlenis Sosa. She will be featured in the December issue of Vogue. Isn't she fabulous? I'm dying to see more of her in the future!

Hip Hop Is Like "A Big High School"

I think Kanye is right about hip hop changing. There's so many diversity in hip hop right now. I think it's pretty fascinating. It keeps people wanting more and more. 

Also, for those anxiously waiting for The Nike Air Yeezys, it's offical their coming out in March 2009 in 4 different colors. I hope their not $300 a pair like Jordans. I think they need to consider how our economy is affecting our retail market.

It's been announced! Kanye's next tour will be called YE vs THE VOLCANO!

For more information about the shoes, visit Nike Air Yeezys.

Basketball + Vitamin Water = Steve Nash

I forgot to mention my love for basketball. How could I???? Basketball has been apart of me since I was a child, literally. I use to shoot hoops in front of my house when I lived in a ranch, I was on a basketball team for about 5 years, and since then I've been in love. I love watching it, playing it, reading about it and talking about it. It will always be apart of me. I don't have an actually team but I like them all except the Lakers! Yes, I agree Kobe is an awesome player but something about him that I do not like. 

Here's a commercial for Vitamin Water with Steve Nash. Whom I think is the best player in the NBA right now. It's pretty neat because he's a very humble person. And now, he's giving himself recognition.

Here's a few quotes from this video:
"Me...Kobe...Lebron. We're in another atrstosphere"
"When you think of MJ, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? Me"
"I hear people talk about me so much I forget... I really am great"
"I'm just like you, but 10x better"
"People say "hey you don't wanna swim with sharks", but I'm faster than sharks"
"Why do companies ask me to push products? Because I move products"

GUCCI Commercial Featuring Rihanna

It's lovely. I like the fact that their focused on the handbag and the detail. And, of course, it's for a good cause! Rihanna looks pretty. I like her tattoo on her shoulder, it looks cute.

The collection is available on Gucci's website.

Impressive: CHANEL Globe Earrings

WOW.... Those earrings added GLAM to that simple beautiful Rock & Republic dress. I personally wouldn't wear them just because I'm more simple... But those earrings are very nice! It says KARL all over them! Only he would.... I wonder how much these earrings cost. Definitely not $300. Maybe slightly under $2,000? I'm sure you must be on the wait-list for these babies... Anyways, Beyonce is on top of her game. Her album was just released(hopefully sales are high) and she was looking gorgeous at Gotham Magazine's Annual Gala in NYC last night. But where's Jay, Bey???? 
I'm starting to think that Beyonce is near perfection...

Those CHANEL Globe Earrings cost $3,000. Whoa. Must be from The ULTRA Fine Jewelry Collection that recently came out.


Best Early Thanksgiving Gift EVER

This just made my heart jump! Adding Lupe, T-Pain and Fab is brilliant! Don't really care for the other artists and Busta... Unless, he performs his old tracks then I'm hyped about his performance! I just hope this doesn't make T.I.'s and Kanye's performance shorter cause that would suck. I cannot wait to see T.I live.. I've never seen him in concert before so I've been listening to "Paper Trail" and his old songs to prepare myself! And of course, I've been listening to Kanye and I'm ready for "808 & Heartbreaks"! Imagine, if Jay-Z showed up..... I'd D-I-E! What if Lil' Wayne pops up to perform "Swagger Like Us" or "Tell Everyone That You Know"? That'd be awesome! I will make sure I know all the lyrics to each of Kanye's songs... 12/11, you better get ready for me!

L.A, here I come! I know you missed... Even tho, we had a love/hate relationship.
I hope I'm able to see my BFF Choyce.. I miss ya, luv!

I'm also excited to stay at the new Renaissance Hollywood Hotel. Never stayed there but from what I read, it's real nice. It better be for being ranked #4 in Los Angeles.. Let me know if you've stayed there before, I'd love to know!

Located on N. Highland

If your interested in attending purchase your tickets on, Ticketmaster or Live Nation.


Best Dressed For This Week

Chanel Iman wearing Obedient Daughters
at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund at Skylight Studies(11/14)

Not only is Chanel Iman my favorite model and muse.. But she's so fashion forward. She isn't afraid to takes risks! She makes ANYTHING look young and fresh! I have never seen her in an outfit that it's boring... I always enjoy seeing pictures of her attending events because she's always looking fabulous! At age 18, she knows what's trendy and rocks an outfit! Can't wait to see more of her!

Wearing Rachel Roy
at the MoMA Film Benefit Gala(11/10)

I cannot wait to get the December issue of Vogue! Oscar de La Renta will be showing his brand new home! So pumped!

Jay-Z Video

I'm looking forward to this show. I think TV needs more talk shows that relate to music instead of drama. It will be airing on 11/24 at 11:30p.m. Make sure to watch it! Jay-Z will be her first guest... Yes! Plus, I don't think it's tacky to be eating candy and talking... It's cute when Jay-Z is doing it!


Okay, so when I saw this I was screaming my lungs out but quietly(I was in class). I want this bag so bad! I've been wanting the clutch....since I saw it before it even came out! Now I want this! And it's on Bluefly for $200 off. It'd be perfect for a school bag or a travel bag!

* Also available in Black Patent leather.

This clutch comes in ivory, silver and gold also. I believe the silver and gold were limited edition. I reallllllllllllly want this. I think I've been impatient for a good while, please Santa I want this!

I Am...Sasha Firece

Beyonce's "I Am...Sasha Firece" is OUT RIGHT NOW! GO out and purchase it at your local record store or at Target!

I think by far this is her best record. We're able to experience two sides of Beyonce. I cannot wait to dance to some of her songs!

My favorite songs so far are:
If I Were A Boy, Halo, Sweet Dreams, Broken Hearted Girl and I'm Alone Now.

Highlight of My Night: Lost Music Video

Uh, I dont know why but Jay has this power that makes me.... tingle! I just smile so big when I see him.. I love this song so once I found it, I just had to post it! I also like Coldplay, too. :)

Alexander Wang Wins CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund Award

This is amazing! I've been in love with his work since I heard about him when I was visiting San Francisco when I was a senior in high school but he wasn't big at the time. But I'm so happy that he won. He truly deserves it. His work is unique and it makes a woman feel like a rebel, in a good way. That is so weird tho because today at school I was reading the Vogue issue with Reese Witherspoon on it and I was amazed about the constants for this award. But Congrats Alexander! I was rooting for you the entire time! I hope to have the opportunity to meet you one day or even intern for you! My other favorites were Jason Wu and Carlos Obando.

To read more about it, click here.

Does this mean.... We might see an Alexander Wang collaboration with the Go-International line for Target? That's be awesome! *crossing fingers*

Lipstick Jungle Not Canceled?

Brooke Shields recently was interviewed and responded about the show at an event. "They thought that because My Own Worst Enemy has been shut down that the same thing happened to us, and it's not true," she said at Sunday's Cookie Magazine Kidsfest in New York City. "They're not breaking down the sets. We're still working. We still have more to do, so it's erroneously presented that we've been canceled, thank God. Our bosses are saying, "You're not canceled, don't worry. We're just trying to figure out how to make this make sense." It's been insane. I think that the public outcry has been crazy and it's kind of wonderful. We're basically No. 1 if you look at DVR. And you look at all that. So the public is watching it."

I heard fans have been sending tubes of lipstick to the President and CEO of NBC Universal: Jeff Zucker
30 Rockefeller Plaza, 52 Floor
New York, NY 10112

Hope this is accurate because I love this show and Robert Buckley!


Love this! Gucci + Rihanna

I am so happy to see Rihanna working with Gucci. I think she's so fashionable in a weird cool way. I love the fact that she dresses age appropriate and people aren't confused about her style.
Check this video out!

I'm still waiting to see Jay-Z's ads for Fendi.
I heard they were shot a while ago but never seen them....
Was he dropped and replaced by an actual model?


"Rehab" by Rihanna ft. Justin Timberlake

Hmmm, 50 Cent Talking About Kanye's New Album

I think he's still mad that Kanye beat him BY A LOT on record sales. lol

The Standard Hotel

The Standard is a hot spot in Downtown L.A. I've been there a few times because I lived across the street and would know when something is going on. But it's such a fun environment. It's very unique! It's not your normal 3-4.5 star hotels, it's very colorful and it reminds me of something I would see in Tokyo. It's actually a really nice hotel, restaurant, pool, lounge/club. It's a hot spot for clubbing in Downtown L.A. Check it out when you're in the L.A area, even to grab a bite! There's three locations at the moment(Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and Miami) but their building one in New York City in the Meat Packing District. I'm very excited to see the hotel once it's done in NYC because the architecture is going to be incredible! Very different. I cannot wait to stay there and hang out!

The Standard in NYC

If you go on their website, it's pretty neat because the image of the construction changes every 15 mins. 

Beyonce on SNL & Her Perfect Body

Beyonce & Justin Timberlake on SNL - 11/15

I couldn't stop laughing when JT was one of her back up dancers. The skip was to address those rumors that Beyonce used "a tranny" for her video. It was a big thing on Bossip.

Uhh, I need to call her trainer! When she was on Oprah on Thursday, she said she cooks Hamburger Helper frequently... Uh huh! She probably makes it for her hubby Jay. I'm waiting for photos from her "Single Ladies" performances to be posted to see her incredible figure! I also liked the dress she wore when she was performing "If I Were A Boy".

Remember to purchase "I Am... Sasha Fierce" on 11/18! You're also able to listen to her album on Beyonce's Myspace. My favorite song is "Broken Hearted Girl". I relate sooo much to it!


Wish I Was There


Sometimes, I wish I lived in London...

I've been blessed to see De La Soul, Mos Def and Nas at the Rock the Bells '08 in San Francisco. But it wouldn't hurt to see them ALL together again. And with Kanye & Will I AM there!

" Hip Hop. I loved you, I still do... And I always will." - Brown Sugar<3

The New Improved JFK, Our President Obama

When my friend sent me the link to the shirt he bought, I wasn't expecting this! When our President Barack was announced as our new President of the United State, the first thing that came to my mind was, "The new improved JFK!!" This shirt means a lot to me, so I will be purchasing it for myself. Its a piece of art that says.. History is repeated because we needed a change and a new President for the people. I hope people are able to understand the meaning of this tee shirt.

Dee & Ricky

These two young designers Dee & Ricky are known for the Lego Heart and other Lego pieces that were featured in the Marc Jacobs Runway Show in 2007 for NYC Fashion Week. It's sometimes rare to see street wear mixed high-end contemporary but it's fun! It's fresh and young. I'd love to see another collab with urban wear!

Since I'm lucky to own a Lego Heart(thank you Ric!), I thought I'd share my love for these pieces and the designers. It's a cool pin that is very street wear but it looks good with almost anything! Its stuck on my leather jacket cause it looks fab! I recently wore my Alice + Olivia boots and I was wearing my heart.. And everyone loved it! But I loved my outfit a little

The Lego Heart has been seen on Kanye West and Travis McCoy(vocalist for Gym Class Heroes) as seen on Concrete Loop. And Travis just made a post about the twins on his blog!.
