MONDAY'S MESSAGE

A COUPLE WEEKS AFTER THE GLOOMIEST DAY OF THE YEAR TODAY WAS APPARENTLY DEEMED THE HAPPIEST DAY OF THE YEAR AND A COUPLE MORE WEEKS ON, IT'LL BE THE MOST ROMANTIC DAY OF THE YEAR. HERE'S SOMETHING TO DO EVERYDAY OF THE YEAR:

NAIL THERAPY

MY GIRL RI GOT HERSELF WAH'D UP LAST WEEK AS SHE NEEDED A LIL SOMETHING TO CHEER HER UP. WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO VISIT WAH - THE HIPPEST NAIL SALON WHERE THE COOL CATS GET THEIR DAILY NAIL POLISH DOSES.

P P P POKER

WATCHED A PROGRAMME ABOUT LADY GAGA'S RISE TO FAME OVER THE WEEKEND, GOT IN THE MOOD AND LISTENED TO HER ALBUM, THEN JUST SO HAPPENED TO COME ACROSS THIS 'POKER CARD' PAINTING BY (WAY TALENTED) AMERICAN ARTIST DANNY BYL. POKER CARD - POKER FACE, I KNOW YOU SEE THE LINK YOU CLEVER PEOPLE. DESCRIBING HIS WORK AS FUN AND COLOURFUL THIS PIECE IN PARTICULAR MADE ME SAY 'OOH SNAP'.

TRAID-ING

MY SATURDAY AFTERNOON BECAME A SHOW STOPPING SWAPPING AND SEWING AFTERNOON THANKS TO A 'SWISHING' EVENT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TRAID - MY MOST FAVE CHARITY TEXTILE RECYCLER. BASICALLY EVERYONE BRINGS BETWEEN 1-5 ITEMS OF CLOTHING/ACCESSORIES AND FOR EACH ITEM YOU BRING YOU CAN SWAP FOR ANOTHER! YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW EXCITED I WAS, PLUS, THE SWISHING IS INCORPORATED INTO A SEWING WORKSHOP WHERE THE OH SO HELPFUL FOLKS AT TRAID SHOW YOU HOW TO AMEND/MEND OR CUSTOMISE YOUR CLOBBER. IN TRUE FASHIONISHA STYLE I SKIPPED ALONG, GAVE, SWAPPED AND SEWED CAREFULLY TO MY HEARTS CONTENT. TRUST ME, MACHINING CAN BE RATHER THERAPEUTIC AND WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM SAY, THIS RED MACHINE AT JOHN LEWIS, EVEN YOU COULD GIVE YOUR GARMENTS A NEW LEASE OF LIFE.

DAY OF REST

LOVING THIS ILLUSTRATION BY SWEDISH FASHION ILLUSTRATOR ANNA FREDRIKSSON. ONE OF HER PIECES GRACES MY WALL ALREADY. THIS ONE REMINDS ME OF A LAZY SUNDAY AFTERNOON - KINDA LIKE TODAY FOR ME AND POSSIBLY FOR YOU TOO. THE LINES ALL SEEM SO HAPHAZARD BUT THEY COME TOGETHER TO MAKE UP A BEAUTIFUL DRAWING.

LET ME SEE YOUR BESTEST WINE

SO MAJOR LAZER - 'PON DE FLOOR'. I KNOW YOU'VE ALL HEARD THIS BANGER. THE VIDEO ALSO CONTAINS A WHOLE LOT OF BANGING TYPE ACTIONS AND SOME PRETTY BANGIN' ANIMATIONS AND GRAPHICS. FEATURING SOME OF NY'S NAUGHTIEST 'DAGGA' DANCERS (A JAMAICAN TERM WHERE DUDES GRIND ON GIRLS IN VARIOUS WAYS) THIS IS A BIZARRE BUT BRILLIANTLY PUT TOGETHER, TECHNICOLOURED KARMA SUTRA STYLE, MUSICAL EXPLOSION.

WELCOME TO LONDON, WE HOPE YOU HAVE A PLEASANT STAY

DAY #1 - NICKI LANDS AT HEATHROW AIRPORT ARMED WITH LV BELLEVUE MONOGRAM TOTE.
DAY #2 - NICKI STEPS OUT IN LONDON TOWN WEARING AN EXCITING JUMPSUIT BY CASSETTE PLAYA AND FUNFAIR HAIR.

AS MODELLED BY

WITH REFERENCE TO MY POST YESTERDAY AND EVA'S OVAL NAILS - HERE IS THE PROOF. SNAPPED MY GIRL CHARLOTTE'S CREAMY DIPPED CURVED TIPS TODAY AT WORK. THIS IS AS CURRENT AS IT GETS FOLKS. SHE WEARS 'LEMON MERINGUE' POLISH BY MODELS OWN. THEIR RANGE IS UTTERLY DISTRACTING, IN A POSITIVE WAY.

DON'T BE A SQUARE

I APPRECIATE A GOOD LOOKING WOMAN WHEN I SEE ONE. EVA MENDES. GOOD LOOKING. APPRECIATED. I LIKED THIS SNAP EVEN MORE SO THOUGH BECAUSE HER NAILS LOOK GOOD LOOKING TOO. I'VE SEEN THIS OVAL, ALMOST VERGING ON POINTY SHAPE, QUITE A BIT LATELY. TO KEEP FROM LOOKING TOO WITCHY AVOID HARSH TONES AND STICK WITH THE AU NATUREL HUES (SUNKISSED SKIN AND A POSE LIKE HERS WOULD HELP TOO).

DEBENHAMS AIN'T SO DOWDY

SAW THIS IN...UM...SORRY I CAN'T REMEMBER WHICH MAGAZINE LAST WEEK. BUT WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT IT'S BY BRITISH BORN RETRO REVIVER HENRY HOLLAND FOR DEBENHAMS AND I TOOK A SNAP OF IT FOR YOU. WOULD LOOK REAL CUTE WITH TOP BUTTON DONE UP AND SAY A TWEED BLAZER. ONLY £25, THAT'S A DESIGNER SAFARI STEAL.

IT'S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM

TODAY IS APPARENTLY 'THE GLOOMIEST DAY OF THE YEAR', WELL BLA TO THAT COZ THESE 'FRANK' BROGUES LITERALLY MADE ME SING IN THE RAIN. SIMPLY SMART AND IN-KEEPING WITH THE NEW SPRING/SUMMER SORBET SHADES THAT ARE APPEARING AROUND TOWN, I SNAPPED MY PREFERRED COLOUR ON MY FEET IN OFFICE AND JUST STARED AT THEM FOR A WEE WHILE. A BIT MORE YELLOWY THAN IN THE PIC - THEY REMINDED ME OF SALTY POPCORN.

GINUWINE FOR MY MIND

I DELVED INTO MY VAST MUSIC COLLECTION THIS WEEKEND AND DECIDED TO RELISH IN THE SEXUAL SOUNDS OF MR PONY HIMSELF, GINUWINE. 'SO ANXIOUS' HAS TO BE MY TURN IT UP THE LOUDEST TRACK ON THE '100% GINUWINE' ALBUM. OTHER THAN OBVIOUS SETTING THE SCENE USES, THIS ALBUM, WITH IT'S LYRICAL PASSION, IS ALSO A SOOTHING ACCOMPANIMENT FOR LONG DRIVES/BEING STUCK IN TRAFFIC.

DON'T CARE IF IT SOUNDS CLICHE

...BOOKING THAT TICKET HAS PUT ME IN AN EMPIRE STATE OF MIND. COULDN'T HELP BUT POST JIGGA AND ALICIA 'COMING UP' PICS, I MEAN YOU THINK OF NY AND THOSE TWO CATS INSTANTLY SPRING TO MIND.

"AND SINCE I MADE IT HERE, I CAN MAKE IT ANYWHERE..."

BOOKED

TODAY AIN'T JUST ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, TODAY I BOOKED MY TICKET TO NYC. HAVING BEEN IN 05, 07 AND 08, I REALLY DO, HEART NY. THE CRAVING TO RE-VISIT HAS RE-SURFACED AND THIS YEAR I DECIDED I WOULD GO IT ALONE AND TURN 27 (YES TWENTY SEVEN) IN THE CONCRETE JUNGLE WHERE DREAMS ARE MADE OF, WHERE THE STREETS WILL MAKE ME FEEL BRAND NEW AND THE BIG LIGHTS WILL INSPIRE ME. MORE DETAILS TO FOLLOW BUT FOR NOW, ENJOY THIS PHOTO CIRCA 2007 WHERE MY CUZZIE AND I TOOK A CHEAP SHOT OF OUR EMPIRE STATE TRIP.

T TIME

MY FIRST 'TEA' LOVE WILL ALWAYS BE CHAI TEA BUT IN BETWEEN THAT WHEN I WANT 'A MOMENT OF CALM', A NEED TO BE 'REVIVED OR REVITALISED' OR JUST SOMETHING 'FRESH & FRUITY' I TURN TO TWININGS (OR POP OVER TO MY FRIEND JOSHUA'S SWANKY IKEA-ESQUE PAD WHERE HE SERVES IT UP IN A DELIGHTFUL COLOURED MUG ON A POSH COASTER). NOW THERE'S A GUY THAT KNOWS HIS TEA DOWN TO A T. ALSO, ACCORDING TO MUM, THEY'RE CURRENTLY 72p A BOX IN TESCO. SO GO CHOOSE YOUR BREW, ADD BOILED WATER AND LIKE ME, A SPOONFUL OF HONEY FOR EXTRA SWEETNESS. WITH COUNTLESS INFUSIONS TO TICKLE EVERY TASTE BUD - THESE ARE THE TYPE OF BAGS THAT WON'T WEIGH YOU DOWN.

CHANGING FACES

NICKI MINAJ GOT FACE AND BODY PAINTED FOR HER LATEST COVER/SPREAD IN V MAGAZINE RECENTLY. THE TRIBAL THEME WENT HAND IN HAND WITH HER MULTIPLE RAPPING PERSONA'S AND SHE BOLDLY TOLD V:

"I JUST WANT TO DO 'ME', BUT 'ME' CHANGES EVERYDAY. I WOULD CRUMPLE UP AND DIE IF I HAD TO WAKE UP AND BE THE SAME PERSON EVERYDAY. I DON'T WANT TO SILENCE THOSE VOICES ANYMORE. I JUST LET THEM SPEAK." 

 
AND SO YOU SHOULD NICKI, JUST LIKE A TRUE TRIBAL WARRIOR. I FOR ONE WOULD NEVER WANT YOU TO CRUMPLE UP AND DIE.

IN THE SACK

RUCKSACKS AREN'T JUST FOR KIDS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY LOOK AS APPEALING AS THESE CANVAS CARRIERS. ASOS HAVE THEM ALL LINED UP FOR SPRING IN CLEAN AND BRIGHT (LIKE AQUAFRESH) COLOURS. SWITCH UP YOUR BORING BLACK WORK BAG, DITCH YOUR GRIMEY GYM BAG OR SAVE IT FOR A DIRTY WEEKEND AWAY.

A SLICE OF CAKE

I CAN'T COOK. WELL THERE GOES MY CHANCES OF FINDING A HUSBAND. I DO THOUGH ADORE FOOD (I WILL HAPPILY EAT YOUR LEFTOVERS) AND LOVE WATCHING COOKERY SHOWS. MY FAVOURITE BEING THE CANDIDLY NARRATED COME DINE WITH ME WHICH I COULDN'T WATCH TODAY AS THE REMOTE CONTROL/FREEVIEW BOX WEREN'T GETTING ALONG. LAST NIGHT HOWEVER I CAUGHT MY TV FOOD FIX WHEN  I STUMBLED UPON A PROGRAMME CALLED MAKING MADE EASY PRESENTED BY FORMER MODEL TURNED TV CHEF LORRAINE PASCALE. SHE MADE THE ALMOST TOO GOOD LOOKING TO EAT 'I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU MADE THAT' CAKE - SOFT CHOCOLATE SPONGE, LASHINGS OF BUTTERCREAM, ENCIRCLED IN SOPHISTICATED CHOCOLATE CIGARILLOS AND A MOUNTAIN OF PLUMP RASPBERRIES, I WAS HOOKED. OH WHEN'S MY BIRTHDAY I HEAR YOU ASK? 1ST MARCH.

MONEY WELL SPENT

AT THIS VERY MOMENT I'M NIBBLING ON POUNDLAND 'STRAWB CABLES'. SHARE THE EXPERIENCE WITH ME AND INDULGE YOURSELF. WOW, I'VE JUST BEEN TOLD I'M INSPIRATIONAL AND SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL...COULD IT BE THE CANDY?

WHAT'S YOUR LOVE FACE?

I'VE BEEN B. LASTING THE CURRENT PASSION PAIN & PLEASURE  ALBUM FROM TREY SONGZ AND IF YOU'RE A REGULAR READER YOU'LL KNOW BY NOW THAT I HOLD A VERY SPECIAL PLACE FOR HIM IN MY HEART, DREAMS, EYES, HEAD, SHOULDERS, KNEES AND TOES. LOVE THIS OPENING LINE FROM TRACK #2 ON THE ALBUM ENTITLED LOVE FACES, HE SPEAKS THE TRUTH.

"WHEN I MET YOU WOMAN, I COULDN'T HELP BUT NOTICE A FACE SO BEAUTIFUL, NOW IMAGINE THE FACES YOU WOULD MAKE, IF WE EVER MADE LOVE"

THIS IS A JOURNEY INTO SOUND

30,000FT IS THE LONG AWAITED FEATURE MIXTAPE FROM MY FRIEND SKYY-ITHE SLICK TONGUED, SOUTH WEST HAILING RAPPER FROM CROOKSTREET GANG. NOT TO BE BIASED, BUT THERE ARE TOO MANY STAND OUT TRACKS ON HERE (KAT STACKS TAKES MY TROPHY). I LOVE THE SMOOTH MERGING OF SWEET NOSTALGIC SAMPLES (CALL ME) AND CATCHY HOOKS (FEELS LYK) OVER HIS RASPY RAP COVERING PASSIONATE VERSES THAT INTERTWINE LIFE, FAMILY, THE ENDZ, THAT PIFF, THOSE WOMEN, SEX/LOVE/HATE AND OF COURSE…TATTOOS. IT’S REAL, IT’S RAW AND SKYY I GIVES YOU AN INSIGHT INTO THE 'LATE NITE HUSTLE' OF HIS MUSIC GAME WITH NO B.S. IT FEATURES FELLOW CROOKSTREET ANIMATED RAPPER ART DALEY WHO TOO SHINES BRIGHTLY (SO WAVY) AND THE PAIR WORK WONDERS TACTFULLY PASSING PUNS BACK, BACK, FORTH AND FORTH. I’M IMPRESSED. IT’S APPEALING AND IT’S INTELLIGENT AND IT PLAYS OVER AND OVER ON MY SHINY YELLOW IPOD. 30,000FT HIGH, SITTING ON THE CLOUDS IN THE SKY, SO FAR OFF THE GROUND - YOU WON’T EVER WANT TO COME DOWN…

THE COLLEGE DROPOUT?

SPOTTED OUT IN NYC THE OTHER DAY, MR WEST LOOKED LIKE HE WAS HEADING TO PIMP SCHOOL. COMPLETE WITH A STUDIOUS SNAKESKIN DETAILED RUCKSACK, FULL LENGTH FUR COAT TO KEEP OUT THE PLAYGROUND CHILL, THE 'I'M COMFORTABLE WITH MY SEXUALITY' LEATHER TROUSERS AND THOSE ALL IMPORTANT B BALL READY JORDAN SNEAKERS - KANYE WAS BOUND TO GRADUATE AT THE TOP OF HIS CLASS.

HOT IN HERRE?

I'M A SUCKER FOR LOVE AND JUST COULDN'T HELP BUT POST THIS PIC OF CUDDLING COUPLE NELLY AND ASHANTI CELEBRATING NYE IN LAS VEGAS. HE MUSTA NOT HAD TIME TO EAT BEFORE THEY LEFT THE HOUSE.

CHICK WITH THE BRAIDS

LOOKS LIKE KIM MAY HAVE BEEN EXPERIMENTING WITH A NEW DO FOR 2011 BUT I'M NOT SURE IF COPYING SNOOP REALLY WORKED FOR HER (OR ME IN 05). SHE DESCRIBED THE LOOK AS 'CRAY, CRAY', THAT'S CRAZY TO YOU AND ME AND IT'S ALLEGED THE HAIR MAY HAVE BEEN DID FOR ESPECIALLY FOR HER FIRST MUSIC VIDEO RUMOURED TO FEATURE KANYE WEST. I'M THINKING OF A NEW DO TOO...HAIR'S SO LONG THAT IT LOOK LIKE WEAVE, I MIGHT CUT IT ALL OFF SO I LOOK LIKE EVE. OPINIONS PLEASE...

CREEPY CARD

BEEN MEANING TO POST THIS FOR A BIT - THIS WAS THE KARDASHIANS FAMILY CHRISTMAS CARD AND IT INSTANTLY REMINDED ME OF THE ADDAMS FAMILY CLAN (CLICK CLICK) - IT'S GOT THAT OLD GLAMOROUS VIBE BUT WITH A DARK HAUNTING SIDE. KIM PLAYS MORTICIA, LEMAR TAKES LURCH AND LIL MASON MAKES AN ADORABLE PUGSLEY. 

2011

THE NIGHT WENT SMOOTHLY AND THE FUR SKIRT (AS SEEN AT FENDI/LANVIN/MISSONI) WAS A STROKING SUCCESS. WHEN THE CLOCK STRUCK 12 WORK IT - TRUE TO THEIR 90' S WORD - DROPPED 'DARK SKINNED, CHRISTIAN DIOR POSTER GIRL' FOXY BROWN'S OH YEAH, THIS SPURRED AN INSTANT HI5 BETWEEN MY SISTER AND I AND THE SWEET SHOT OF DISARONNO DANCED RIGHT THROUGH ME.
