RANDOM | GIANT MAG: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
I recently went to the movies and watched “The Adjustment Bureau” with Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Anthony Mackie. I haven’t seen Anthony Mackie in a movie since “Notorious” where he played Tupac and Iwas still interning at Giant Mag (which feels forever ago!) So I was really excited to see him in the Adjustment Bureau where he played a “angel”. Don’t want to give too much away but the movie was awesome, even brought some tears tomy eyes lol. But it did remind me about my little magazine clip I had of us from when I went along to a photoshoot for Giant for the movie “Notorious” where I got to meet the cast. It was pretty awesome, we thumb wrestled lol!
One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president’s secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you.” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
It seems that love has become so hard to define
So I thought I’d help and give you some hints of mine.
To inspire you to create a script of your own
And to let you know you are not alone.
Love is an amazingly interesting thing
If served up properly, it can make your heart sing.
But somehow, it seems along the way
We lost love’s real meaning, you might say!
We forgot that love is an action-not a word
To think otherwise is really absurd.
We spend a lot of time not giving love a thought
Too busy buying things, when love cannot be bought.
Love is simply kindness,truth, respect and purity
Safely, enthusiasm, understanding and sincerity.
Remember, you always have an inside mentor
Because love is the core that lives in the center.
So come on, get going and write whatever you wish
How you love your friend, family, dog or even your fish.
Think about how everyone and everything makes you feel
Let your words pave the way to become heartfelt and real.
Write, draw or print what all that love honestly means to you
And then watch how your dreams will really come true.
Love is the ONLY answer you truly need to know
For you to be blissful and for your spirit to grow.
Then peace will be created in the world and all will be right
Finally, there will be no heaviness-there will only be light.

Dope to see Rumi (one of my fave female bloggers) rocking the same sweater I just recently bought from Topshop, My friends call it my Freddy Kruger sweater apparently she does too.
I obviously think she wore it way better than me! But I think my new matte grey Good Wood x Marcus Troy bow tie pulled my look together! (Take a look!)
BOOKS | A Monograph By Sasha Grey: NEU SEX
Ok so it might not be a book to ACTUALLY read, but a photography book which allows the “actress” to also express her creative side and her real personality by controlling the images from behind the lens too. Sounds like a good read to me.
Check her out: SashaGrey.com and make sure to pick up a copy of the book when it drops March 29th.
STYLE | Cast of Vices
I came across this website thru my friend Prince who had one of the Cast of Vices necklaces of a cocaine jar (correct me if I’m wrong) I’ve never seen one in person so I wasn’t sure what he was talking about, but after he showed me the website and told me they have different jewelry pieces of “Vices” including weed baggies, pills and miscellaneous things like club bracelet and a leather ‘I <3 NY’ bag, I kind of fell in love.
I wouldn’t mind these drugs, in the name of fashion.
Check out the rest of the collection: CastofVices.com
STYLE | Socks & Sandals
What do you guys think about this trend? I’ve been seeing it more and more lately in magazines and blogs but never on the streets, just curious as to how it looks in person. Would you guys do it?
