What time iz it?!!

Holy collabos! Yet, another one that I’m going gaga over: Jeremy Scott x Swatch From sleek black to yellow animal print, you’re going to want to SHOW everyone what time it is, instead of waiting for someone to ask you! Who else, besides me, used to wear […]

DEAUPE Sh*t!

  DEAUPE [pronounced: dope] is a photographer and videographer, who hails from the Netherlands. I stumbled across DEAUPE’s “House of Balloons” video mix tape, on YouTube, about a month ago. I was blown away and instantly drawn to the cinematography and aesthetics of his work(s). No […]

I’m always a big fan of Target and high-end designer collabos because shoppers can add designer duds to their closets for bargain prices. This time, Target paired with Itay’s Missoni to scheme up a fun line comprised of clothing, bags, swimsuits, and yes, even a bicycle! […]

Psh, as if girls couldn’t keep up in a “man’s world.” Females have been a part of the skate world for many years; in fact back in the 1960s, there were skate competitions for both men AND women. In this evergrowing culture, skate has become more […]

Hello Kitty x Vans

My obsession with Hello Kitty is currently on overload. Last month, I posted about the collabo between Doc Martens and Sanrio. NOW Vans and Sanrio have put their noggins together to whip up an overbearingly cute Hello Kitty shoe line. Call me crazy, but I don’t mind the […]

Spike it!

I used to be a little indifferent towards the whole spike headband trend for women…reminded me too much of Bowser from Super Mario Brothers. However, recently, it has started to grow on me. Even with the most daring looks that a majority of folks would consider absurd, if donned the […]

“The Art of the Automobile” at Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris

I’m pretty stoked about my recent purchase of the Lunatik and Nano combo. If you saw this product before, Awesome! If you haven’t….prepare to be amazed, because I was. You probably seen tons of replicas, and other style Nano watch carriers that’s cheaper, but…trust me, […]
