MuSick: Daniel De Bo

This guy's voice makes me melt like a popsicle on the fourth of July! All I have is a name, Daniel De Bo, a YouTube Channel(<<<--click to view) and a crush! Trust me, you'll be on him too!! Just listen...ooooh baby! =)

MuSICK: Major Lazer

Everyone loves Beyonce's Run The World (Girls). I am one of those people. So, I was double amazed when I noticed the beat of the song from my other favorite DJ, Diplo. My favorites are Daft Punk, sorry Diplo. Major Lazer (Diplo's side group) made the song Pon de Floor, which is the beat that Beyonce samples in Run The World (Girls). Pon de Floor is like two years old, but who cares. Beyonce loves it! Damn, I feel educated right now.

Now, listen to it to see if you notice something familiar. 

Aww, yeah.

Things We Fancy: High Waist Swim Briefs

I'm so obsessed with high waist swim briefs, and American Apparel has a cornucopia (yeah I said cornucopia) of them in every sexy fabric known to man, and it's sweatshop free. So, there's no little hungry kids making your bikini.

Here are my two favorite pairs.

Mesh sides. Love.
Lace. Too fierce to swim in.

Can you say beach hotness???

Things We Fancy: Haute Nails!!

Nails by Ajia-Z.

Ok so this is my attempt to marble (only first 2 fingers)! I watched the tutorial posted by Sequoia last week. It was actually a piece of cake. I did have a problem actually being satisfied though. They were cute but not 'good enough' so i redid them, them redid them until I finally realized the imperfections are what make the design so cool. Try it!!! =)

Munchie Meals: Mac 'N Cheese Croquettes

Everyone knows I love cheese.
Like seriously, I will bite you/stab you with a fork if you touch anything cheese related on my plate.
Especially my Mac 'n Cheese Croquettes.
I will bust a cap in your ass over one of these. It's a fried piece of heavenly heart attack. It is Mac 'n Cheese "to-go." You don't need a plate especially if you don't have manners. It's the best invention since ramen noodles.
First, it's FRIED MAC 'N CHEESE! Hello! Second, it's super easy to make. It's so easy that you can get creative or fancy with it and add some truffles like this version...

Oprah's eating one of these right now.
Here's the recipe. Now, go make me some with truffles and gold flakes.

MuSICK: Mac Miller

It's official! White...excuse me...Caucasian MCs are back, and the hottest among them is Mac Miller.  The white boy can rap. Like really good. I was thoroughly impressed like watching an episode of Epic Meal Time. Mac Miller's Donald Trump  is the "when I get rich" anthem. He boasts about haters getting mad and getting a big booty chick when he gets rich, (yeah...sure) all the things Donald Trump is blessed with every day. Well, maybe not the big booty chick.


Oh Shhhooe!!: Tyler Bailey

Things We Fancy: Sarcastic Hipster Genius Shopping

I love the internet. Only on the web can you find a place for sarcastic, hipster geniuses to shop. That place is Wanelo helps the sarcastic, hipster genius find all of his/her hipster genius needs by linking them to anything and everything whimsically cool.

From things like this...
How righteous are these? Ninja fight. Genius.

To things like this...
Gun Ice Cubes.
Their slogan is, "Pop a cap in your glass."
Ha. Funny.
Being a closeted hipster, this website may help me come out (not really). So, go to and let your sarcastic, hipster genius flag fly.

Fashionista's First Water Marble

I was bored and decided to look up some new (to me) nail designs to try and found this...

Ok so, first of all, she makes this look way easier than it actually is. It's not difficult, but if you're ADD, then this is not for you. You will mess your hands all the way up, but if you follow directions, it will be the dopest manicure you've ever gotten without rhinestones. I love mine.

Check it...

 (My version of water marbling. Not bad, huh?)

P.S. Check the razor in the background, classy.

    Learning Words with Lipstick and Sh*t!

    Today's word, or better yet, phrase is..."On Rick..."

    Variations include: On Slick Rick foe-real, On Rick bruh, On Rick James (???)

    It is a substitution for "On God" that my little brother made up to keep from getting yelled at about using God's name vain, i.e. blaspheme. My little brother claims he made it up in memory of a guy named Slick Rick from Happy Hill (the projects). He knows no one from the projects. He knows no one from the projects that died. He probably stole this phrase from somebody.

    Example: On Rick bruh, I ain't do nothin'.

    Note: If you are educated or an adult, this is not the word for you.

    MuSICK: Robyn

    Just when I think music has gotten boring, Robyn shows up and does something cool.

    This Swedish firecracker just never ceases to amaze. This chick will dance to ANYTHING! The latest track is no exception. Call Your Girlfriend has been stuck in my head for the past 24 hours. The song is dance music at its finest. (The lyrics are deep too.) Plus, you get to watch Robyn do every dance known to Swedish mankind. (The Electric Slide included) There is even one moment where she humps the floor. How righteous is that!

    So, prepare to be hypnotized by Robyn's awesomeness...

    (Did she not just blow your mind?)

    Dipped Ends: Should I or Shouldn't I?

    So, I've been wanting to do something different but not too outrageous with my hair. I recently dyed it black. I'm talking vampire queen, super-jet black, and I'm already bored with it. So, I've been watching the trends, and I think dipped ends could be the spice that I need to hype up my style a little.

    Check It.

    I like this purple-pink dip. 

    Dipped Ends courtesy of Vogue Australia

    I know that it's not just the fair skin blondes that can rock this look. It's just more complicated to get bright colors into dark hair, but "complicated" has never stopped me before. So, I'm gonna go get a jar of Manic Panic (maybe mix it with some developer) and start dipping my ends like paint brushes.

    So, stayed tuned. There will be pictures....that's if I get the balls to do it.

    Things We Fancy: Fancy Barbies

    Some little girls have been taking their dollies to the next level, and making them look FIERCE (and a tad bit ghetto fab)! Why weren't my Barbies this hot back in the 90's?
    I'm jealous.

    They can pose?! They don't even have souls!
    Chonga Barbie. Love it!
    I don't know who made these masterpieces, but I know that they have a pretty kick-ass hobby.

    MuSICK: Pikasso-In My Zone

    Jordan Shane Perryman (born April 12 1990), better known by his stage name Pikasso is an American rapper. Although born in San Diego California, Pikasso was raised in Mobile Alabama. Being able to draw and paint anything perfectly and being able to express his thoughts through words as an artist, Jordan became Pikasso. Influenced by his cousins rap endevours and exposure to a local recording studio at the early age of just 8 years old, Pikasso began writing music. Pikasso eventually began to record himself. Fascinated by the simplicities of being able to tranfer his thoughts into records and the positive feedback gained from what was once a just a hobby, music was now Pikassos full time job. Having the skills to produce his own music and videos Pikasso started Fulltime Hustla Ent. ( in 2008, and Pikasso does exactly what is described. On the clock 24/7, Pikasso records his music, and runs his business non-stop. Releasing his first mixtape, titled Me, Mieselph, I, in 2009 Pikasso began to gain massive local attention. His second mixtape, Music Notes and C-Notes was released Valentines 2010 and by this time his music had become anticipated by fans worldwide. Directing and recording videos for himself and others Pikasso is the definition of fulltime hustla. Collaborating with multiple artists such as Lil' Chris, Posa, Future, Dynamic, Antwork, and Ka$h Pikasso's third mixtape will be released in May 2011. Titled Insomnia: No Days Off, Pikasso's third mixtape features tracks produced by Que, Maja, TMC, Dakota and Joe C.

    MuSICK: Hooray For Earth

    I found this band today via Nylon Magazine, and I think I love them. Hooray For Earth's "True Loves" is like Friendly Fires meets Radiohead meets Empire of the Sun. The song is great, but the video....I have no idea what the hell is going on. It's a guy in some silver cloth armor hobo-chic ensemble jumping through smoke holes. I just shrug. I guess it doesn't matter what's happening when a song is this good.

    Drank of the Week: The McSwagg aka The McLuvin'

    "The McLuvin"
    or P. Diddy would call it,
    "The McSwagg"

    I chose this drink this week because of it's taste & simplicity.....Take Exhibit A. add Exhibit B..... Drink Responsibly =) (21+ kids!!)
    1 McDonald's Strawberry Lemonade
    Add 4 oz. of Ciroc to make the McSwagg.

    Egg Yolks For Your Lips

    Well, they're not really egg yolks. They just look like them. Introducing the EOS Smooth Sphere.
    The Lemon Drop Smooth Sphere 
    EOS stands for Evolution of Smooth. That sounds like the name of a Justin Timberlake album (I'd buy that). The EOS Smooth Sphere is so righteous. It's stylish. It makes your lips soft and luscious while protecting them from the hot ass Southern sun. However, the greatest thing about this lip balm is that it's 100% organic, and it's practically free of all those big scientific words no one can pronounce. I bought the Lemon Drop today (seen above) for only $3 and I love it. It looks like it came out of a giant hard-boiled chicken egg, but smells like lemon cake. Yum! Lemon Drop is not the only flavor of the Smooth Sphere. It also comes in Summer Fruit, Honeysuckle Honeydew, Medicated Tangerine (which is also anti-bacterial), and Sweet Mint. Pretty soon, I will have them all, and then, I'll start a Smooth Sphere farm!

    Learning Words with Lipstick & Shhh...


    Tonight's word is EXTRA: ex-tra; (adj.) word used to describe a person who goes on and on about what they've done, do, or plan to do in an attempt to impress someone, usually stretches the truth or just completely makes up stories. (n.) a person whose attendance or reason for being present is unsure or undetermined.
    Susie: Hey Amber, who's that girl?? Amber: Oh that's Lauren, she's just an extra.
    Dave: James, what's up with that chick you brought over yesterday?? She wouldn't shut up about the places she's been....where she shops, and the money her ex, she was a little extra.

    Learning Words with Lipstick and Sh*t!

    n. Doing stuff to keep busy while avoiding what really needs doing. When all is said and done, your room is clean, your laundry is folded -- but you haven't started your English paper.
    Example: I should really do my program. But instead, I think it's time for some productive procrastination... Where's the mop??
    Hi, my name is Ajia Z, and I am a productive procrastinator. (Say hi Ajia) I chose this phrase because I have this problem. It's pretty bad, but on the bright side, after this post I will have nothing left to do but homework or dishes, so looks like I'm at the end of my procrastination rope for today. Adios.

    Get Nailed.

    Nails are this year's "toy dog in expensive bag." Everyone from Lady Gaga to your grandma is rocking hot nail designs. I was doing it before everyone else, but it's not about me right now. It's about the nails. 
    So what's hot this summer? Half Moons, Reds, and GOLD! (like real gold not yellow)

    See here:
    Half-Moon Nails from Ruffian Spring/Summer runway

    Red Nails From Valentino Spring/Summer runway

    Gold Foil Nails 
    I've tried all these and you really can't go wrong.

    Things We Fancy: High Heels You Can Build!

    Yes, United Nude (the people behind those Iris Van Herpen collabo booties) bring you The Flat Pack. Aren't they righteous?!
    Check it...
    It's like Lego's for Girls!
    I saw these on the Nylon Magazine blog (my favorite magazine), and apparently, it should only take ten minutes to build each shoe. However, I wouldn't club or jump-rope in these, and I'm sure there is a weight limit. I'm just saying...The Flat Pack is pretty legit. I can't wait until it comes out (I want one), but if you're juicy or like to have a lot of dangerfun, proceed with caution.

    Standing Ovation for RIHANNA'S MAN DOWN

    (Watch Rihanna's Man Down here.)

    Dear Rihanna, the public, and whoever else is concerned......YOU GO BITCH!!!
    Let them say what they may, but all in all THANK YOU. The message delivered in Man Down was AMAZING. On behalf of hundreds of girls EVERYWHERE, THANKS. Sexual assault occurs everyday, and with your video, this overlooked issue is brought to light.
    P.S.  I love the entire Loud album and Rated R.
    Shes' a grown ass woman!! Let her do her thing! You've got to give Rihanna her props. The girl is RED HOTT!!! (Literally, check the hair!) Consistently, even when most couldn't be. I salute you boo!
    Thanks :) With Love, AjiaZ
    Rihanna's Loud is out now. Go buy it!

    The Art of Blending

    The Art of Blending
    How to get the perfect eyeshadow:
    Blending Diagram
    Shadow Blending
    My perfect pink blend
    Any color combo will work ONLY if it's blended correctly. I've included a really awesome chart (see above). As you can see colors are usually applied lightest to darkest and in a circular pattern. Ok, as a make-up artist, even I make mistakes blending at times. However, knowing this technique is the biggest factor in whether you'll look like a super-model or a CLOWN! 
    Remember: Practice makes perfect and have fun perfecting your blending skills. You'll thank me later. Smokey Eyes by AjiaZ above & Passionate purples below....mwwwah! lol

    The Beauty (Fab) vs. The Beast (Fierce!)

    Time to get "Dressed!"
    According to me (that's right lol), there are two types of dresses: One that calls for the beauty in you (fab) and one that brings out the beast (fierce).
    Here are examples:
    To the left is a flirty and fashionable flower dress from Victoria's Secret. Cute on any beauty, it can be worn on dates, to the in-laws' for dinner, even class. Now, pictured above we have the BEAST. Not only does she turn heads, but breaks necks in this Marc Jacobs ensemble as seen on Victoria Beckham above. This is the fashion freak that keeps it classy until party time!! With each style, whether posing for the paparazzi or winning your BF's parents over, the plan is to stand out.

    Like the Victoria's Secret dress? Buy it here.

    Learning Words with Lipstick and Sh*t!

    Today's word is...DANGERFUN:
    Mixing alcohol with potentially safe activities in order to increase the fun level while also increasing the possibility of doing physical damage to yourself and the poor bastards around you.
    Example: a trampoline + copious amounts of alcohol = dangerfun 

    Note: Dangerfun usually involves Four Loko.

    I know what you're thinking..."is there weed in it?" No, stupid, there's something even better...

    Besides the chocolate, caramel, coconut, and a host of other things that would make your dentist throw a hissy, there is one ingredient in here that really no meal should be without...BACON! Yeah, I said it. Bacon, bitches! Mixed right into the filling. My mouth waters. I could already see the guys at Epic Meal Time making a monster version of this dessert (hint, hint). So, the next time you want to make real magic bars, skip the weed and add more bacon!
