MuSICK: Little Dragon

Ritual Union is my new favorite song. I've been listening to Little Dragon since Swimming, and they have really come into their own. This new song is like ethereal Amy Winehouse jazz with a little electro hidden in there. I love Yukimi's voice. You would have never guessed that, that awesome voice came out of that little Japanese-Swedish body.

This is my song. Can't wait for the video. However, while we wait, here's the song itself and the live performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

It's Tattoo Tuesday!

Check this dove tattoo Ajia Z's brother, Pikasso, just got.

Dope right?

Very detailed symbol for peace right on the ribs. Ouch.
I'm pretty sure that it's real size. He should get a real dove, get it to pose like this one and see. 
It fits well with the rose and the bi-coastal tattoo above. That's another righteous tattoo by the way.
This is proof that guys can wear pretty birds too.

Peace in the Middle East.

YES!! GOD HAS SENT A BLESSING TO BEYONCE & JAY-Z...FROM THE STORK! I am as excited as Bey!!! You guys I want to purchase her a baby shower gift! She was glowing! The tone in her voice and excitement in her demeanor showed there was something different about Bey and then she showed us!! It's a baby!! The most precious gift a woman can give the world, to her man, to God. Bey is fruitful! I am impressed!!! She just shot 73% of the bs triangle club theories to the ground! #TeamGOD...
Okay I'm calm, but I am jamming to Beyonce's 4 album and now, I feel every word even more than before. Now playing my FAVORITE track "I Was Here"....she sings in a tone I've NEVER heard her sing on any other album....'I will leave my mark so everyone will know...I was here, I lived I LOVED. I just want them to know I gave my all, did my best, brought someone to happiness, left this world a little better just because....I WAS HERE!" After tonight I am convinced, she's serious! I LOVE U BEYONCE!!
 P.S. Great choice in hubby! He's gonna make a GREAT daddy!


Let’s see, where to start…ah the intro….Drake introduces Wayne while wearing a striped Bill Cosby sweater! Go #TeamYM! Okay now what’s next? How about Wayne’s voice! =) Wayne, you are my dude you know I love you, but YOU CAN NOT SING LIVE! The auto-tune only made it worse!
Then you walk around a little, and I see skinny little white leopard legs! WTF??! Noooo, what was that Lil Wayne was wearing…..wait for it….JEGGINGS. (drops the mf* mic exits stage left).
Okay he didn’t actually leave. This really bad moment got worse. As the camera man goes down, my eyes are pierced with the brightest neon mustard yellow & ketchup red Ronald McDonald sneakers ever worn. Damn You Nicki! Your recent Gaga/Harajuku fashion HELL NO’s have rubbed off on your fam. Tisk Tisk. A few minutes in and ALAST! He realizes he’s doomed, so he begins to jump around & SCRREEEAAMM!! WTF??!! I don’t even know what else to say. Smmfh. #WAYNE #BESTRAPPER TURNED #WORSTDRESSED #MOSTDISAPPOINTINGPERFORMANCEEVER.
I’m done.

Munchie Meal: IHop's Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes!!!!



IHop has created a meal obviosly sent from God. IT IS AMAZING!! One of the few dishes that truly live up to the enticing pictures. As one who'd prefer salts over sweets, I am beyond IMPRESSED! Just imagine a mouthful of a cheesecake crusted with the most delightfully sweet cake covered in strawberries, whipped cream, & a drizzle of strawberry mouth is watering! These pancakes deserve a standing ovation, now run to your car & make that special trip. Thank you IHop, thank you.

Fashionista Nail Time Presents: OPI x The Muppets Holiday Collection

My favorite brand is coming out with a Muppet themed collection for the holiday season. I'm so excited with these colors you just don't understand.

Rainbow Connection.
Way more upbeat than Kermit's song. 

Now, if you don't know who The Muppets are, I don't know what to tell you except happy belated birthday because obviously you were born yesterday.
Anyway, the collection features lots of glitters and lots of reds keeping with the jolly and bright holiday spirit.
Here's my favorite red...

Wocka Wocka.
Waka Flocka stole this from Fozzie Bear.
And then spelled it wrong.
Not cool.
I'm pretty sure OPI is trying to bankrupt me with this collection, and I'm cool with it.

Divine Swine.
Miss Piggy is one of my style icons.
I can see her wearing this.
Here are my other favorites...

Gone Gonzo.
A wild color just like crazy Gonzo.
Amazingly blue.
Gettin' Miss Piggy With It.
Love the vixen glitter.
Hate the thought of that Will Smith song
every time I see the name.
My nails are going to be so happy soon.

MuSICK: We All Try by Frank Ocean (Sid Sriram Cover)

The words to this soooongg are phenomenal!! OMG! They are sooo powerful! Easily one of my favorites and I heard it for the first time last night. Although this isn't the original version, Sid Sriam's voice and delivery makes this version more than amazing. Just listen. Do you hear that!? Bless the creators & contributors of this wonderful piece of art. =) For more from Sid Sriram click HERE to visit his YouTube channel.

MuSICK: Lil' Wayne How To Love

Lil Wayne's 'How To Love' video is officially in my top five for 2011. The song delivers an extremely important message on love. The video shows the different sides to life when one grows up in a stable environment versus an environment where there is no real love only lust and abuse. Wayne, I AM SOOOOO PROUD OF YOU! Seriously man, you did it. Only God knows how many lives you will
touch with this song/video. The way I see it, if he changes one life with this, then mission complete. =)

Thirsty Thursday: The Blue Whale

Moby Dick should be jealous.

It's my mom's favorite drink. (Don't tell her I told you guys that.) It's sweet, and it'll have you drunk in no time because you drank so many.

Here's how you make it:

2 part Blue Curacao
1 part Sour Mix
1 part Orange Juice
1 part Pineapple Juice
1 part Smirnoff Vodka, preferably triple distilled (make it 2 parts, if you want)

Shake with ice, and pour in a cool glass. Add fruit slice garnishments.

Remember. It's happy hour somewhere.

Drink responsibly.

Things We Fancy: Tribal Prints

As you can see by the pictures, tribal print is all the rave this year. Everyone form Kim Kardashian (pictured second) to Gwen Stefani (pictured above) to yours truly (me, AjiaZ pictured at the top) has been rockin' these hot prints. Also pictured in this year's hottest print are Rihanna, Solange, & Katy Perry. Tribal print can be worn
in many ways; dresses, skirts, shirts, even high-waisted tights. There are basically 2 rules when dealing with prints, NEVER match floral with tribal UNLESS you are planning to put on a show (and I don't necessarily mean this in a good way) & don't overdo it. Other than that, HAVE FUN! =)

It's Tattoo Tuesday!

In recent celebrity news, Megan Fox is in the process of removing her Marilyn Monroe tattoo.

Who is Megan Fox?

This is Megan Fox...

Remember when she got fired from Transformers?
This is her tattoo...

I guess it looks like Marilyn Monroe.
Anyway, she says that, basically, Monroe is a bad role model, and she doesn't want that negativity in her life.
I think the Transformers firing is really messing with her head. If it makes her feel better, the third one wasn't even that good. I mean, if Monroe is so negative, why get the tattoo in the first place?
Moral of this Tattoo Tuesday: Think before you ink. Duh.

Things We Fancy: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

Relief statue of Dr. King himself @ The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in D.C.

Sky view of the MLK Memorial

Pictured above is the latest dedication to the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The 30 ft. statue is located in the center of a memorial dedicated to Reverend King in the National Mall in Washington. The memorial is four acres large. Today this grand place is open to the public. There is mild controversy over the 'black' leader's statue being sculpted by a 'chinese' man. I'm not going to get into details but I will say this, it was Dr. King's dream for people to only judge a man by his character. Anyway, I honor the great Martin Luther King Jr. for his courage to have such a dream in the day and time he lived. I am thankful that he lived and so should everyone in America. May his legend continue to live on through his new memorial and this blog post. =)

Twinning with Earrings!

My two favorite twins have started their own accessories line people! Jo (Jonata) and Jojo (Jonathia) Fields' are the second and third most stylish people I know besides me, of course. Now, they make earrings, the most righteous earrings ever. Think about the feather trend with a more creative fashionista take.

Check their stuff....

My pair. Aren't they gorgeous?
Of course they are.
I have a feeling they are going to be famous. This is only the beginning. I can already see them selling out at Max & Chloe, Urbanoutfitters, or Nordstrom (hint, hint retail stores...)

Jo & Jojo are on Facebook and Twitter. Message them to get your accessories custom made or just purchase a pair of ready-made beauties like the ones above.

Jersey Shore Recap: So did they smush or not?!

Did you see Mike's face when Snooki confronted his ass? I died laughing. He was like, "Huh, where am I?"

Anyway, it's finally out there (as if it wasn't before). Snooki and Mike probably smushed. However, on last night's episode, Snooki super-denied that "lie." She freaked the f*ck out, and called Mike a psycho. But, just earlier in the episode, she was all jealous that he was calling one of the DTF twins, Brittany. He said he wouldn't be calling her if Snooki didn't have a boyfriend. Really, Mike?! Really?!

My point is...why is she so jealous if they didn't smush? Why is she so jealous, if she's "in love?" Huh? I want answers dammit. Guess I'll get them next Thursday when this whole Ronnie vs. Mike brawl goes down.

Note: Did anybody notice Snooki's new obsession with handbands???
Here's some Snooki inspired one's I found on

Leopard flower @
Flowers with mixed patterns @ Nordstrom
Polka-dot bow @ Topshop
P.S. I also learned a new word. Twinning.


Things We Fancy: Fly F**kn' Nails!! via Scruples

I know what your thinking.....Booozsiiiighetto!! My nails (and my sisters, hence the extra hands) were done by LeAnn at Scruples salon in Mobile Alabama. Not only is she the HOTTEST nail artist in the city, she's the only salon you can actually go to after nine at night. She's always busy but well worth the wait. I have marbled designs and stiletto nails. On two of my fingers I am blinging thanks to the latest in fancy acrylic which comes full of glitter! Yes, this excites me. I don't usually do the 'ghetto' nails but it's ok in the summer. My sister has marbles designs and 3d glittered acrylic on two nails. LeAnne also does the most fierce brows and lashes, plain nails and minx. Call 251-623-1637 for an appointment or you can walk in at 3961 Cottage Hill Rd. Mobile Al. 36609. You may wanna call ahead just to make sure she's not packed.

Learning Words with Lipstick and Sh*t!

Today's word is chode (cho-duh).

A noun for a male that is not quite a douchebag, but worse than an asshole. A chode is a douchebag or freeloader in training, depending on if you feed him or not. Note: DO NOT FEED THE CHODE!  

Ex. "That guy said he'd buy me a drink, and he brought me back a water that he drank out of.  He's such a chode."

Tattoo Tuesdays!

Starting something new. Tattoos every Tuesday. DOPE INK ONLY!

Lena Diva's Hand-print. 
This week's featured tat is on none other than the other half of this blog, Ajia Z. On her hand is the hand-print of Lena Diva, her daughter/Youtube phenomenon.
Only great mom's get tattoos for there kids. My mom did. (I returned the favor.) Lena Diva's mom did, and it's righteous. This piece was done by the great Matron Medusa, the best tattoo artist in Mobile, maybe America.Why doesn't she have her own show? Kat Von Sleezebag had one, so unfair. I'm just saying. Friend her on Facebook, fools.

Until next time, send us your favorite tattoos on your body (nothing racist, gang-related, or just plain nasty), and you might just see it here along with our witty banter about it.

Barrettes Hot for Fall...Seriously?!

According to my sources...yes.

I know what you're thinking. This is some bullsh*t. It's not. It's quirky. Yeah, quirky.

I mean, think about it. Alexander McQueen did it. Prada did it. Why can't it happen off the runway? Right? Ok, so, I think I'm going to go with this. I collected handbands pre-Blair Waldorf, so I think I know my way around a hair accessory or two.
Weaves, hello?!

Anyway, I went on and put together my favorite barrettes.

Juicy Couture.
These match a pair of sandals I have.

Marc Jacobs.
 I just adore this.
Why is this not in my head?!

Eugenia Kim.
 I love bows.
I love leopard print.

Precious Hands.
Tribal cutness. With beads.

Things We Fancy: More Funky Frames

I absolutely loooove the cat-eye sunglasses. Today was my lucky day! While in the hair store i found these baby blue, black , and grey leopard print cat-eye sunglasses. Wait, here comes the best part, THEY WERE ONLY $5! Can you say steal? =) (p.s. disregard the chipped polish...i am in desperate need of a mani!)

Snooki and "The Situation" Smushed, Really?!

Jersey Shore is back fools!!! My eight favorite stereotypes are in Italy confusing the sh*t out of the natives. Sorry Pope.

Anyway, this season has already started with some mess. What is with this Snooki and "Situation" hook up business?!!! Did they really smush? Really?! Then, "Situation" told Ronnie about it, and now, he and Ronnie are going to fight. Plus, "Situation" might be catching feelings for Snooki! WHAT?! I LOVE IT!

The image in my mind of that ill fated hook-up is not pretty. I rather her go for Vinny again. Oh wait...Snooki has a boyfriend!!! (shocked face)

I guess it's all about to come to a fist pumping head tonight, and I can't wait.

In the meantime, here's a behind the scenes look at the big fight.

Mob Wives with Sophia Bush & Drea de Matteo

I was going to keep this to myself as my own little funny secret, but I couldn't. Thanks Will Ferrell and Funny or Die for making Mob Wives funnier than it already was.


Now, go throw your own dinner party.

Things We Fancy: FALL!

Fall's almost here, dude.

I know that in the South there is no such thing as Fall. There is just heat, hurricane season (which lasts like half the year), and in winter, an occasional cool breeze.
However, I grew up in Delaware, so I remember Fall in great detail. Fall is the best season. I mean, seriously, I could go on forever about all the stellar things that happen in the Fall like state fairs (Greater Gulf State Fair, for us); the start of boyfriend season (got to have a boo in time for Christmas); and season premieres on all the best shows. My two favorites are Gossip Girl and Bones. I'm such a well-rounded individual.

Yet, the most important thing about Fall is...Fashion. For one, the alliteration is advertising gold, and two, Fall is when the most important week in fashion takes place. Hello, Fashion Week.

Fall is a versatile season. It's not too cold, it's not hot either. It's the perfect season to try new things. I'm thinking about playing with bright colors and patterns this season, which is subject to change. Ooh, I almost forgot...BOOTS! Start buying them now because come September everyone will be trying to work the same boot. At least, you can say you did it first. 

So go forth and shop for Fall and dust off your "skills" for boyfriend season.

Things We Fancy: Nicki Minaj in Ice Age 4!!

Vibe magazine has released an online article (click here to view) stating that Young Money's queen B Nicki Minaj, along with Drake, Queen Latifah and many others, has been added to the cast of Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. I absolutely looooove Nicki Minaj and Ice Age 1, 2, and 3 so i'm definitely anticipating the 4th one. Ice Age 4 is said to be in theaters July 2012.

Adventures in TJ Maxx!

Ok so, I didn't want to wait in a doctor's office (siblings getting check ups for school), so I left and went to TJ Maxx. If you live in Mobile, I'm talking about the good one next to Fresh Market (Fresh Market is righteous by the way).

Anyway, I bought these.

Aren't they just darlin'?

They're from some label called Pelle Moda. They're hunter green suede. They look gray here, but I know my colors. These shoes are hunter green. The color is not what's important. THEY WERE ONLY $30!!! Yes, I'm serious, and they were not on sale.

It's me in them. You can see the tag. Lol!
They are way taller than they look. I think I'm going to wear them out tomorrow night. Yeah, I'm so going to do that.

Things We Fancy: Flava! "Slap Ya Mama" Cajun Seasoning

Yes, it's that d* good!! "Slap Ya Mama" is the perfect cajun seasoning. Add it to seafood, meats, vegetables, even popcorn. I just bought a can about 2 weeks ago and it has been used in at least one dish per day. You may wanna pick up 2 cans, trust. For cool recipes and tips visit this link "Slap Ya Mama" Thank me later! =)

Alaia Leopard Boots!!! OMFG!!!

Have you seen these?!!!

I mean Christ! Why would they do this to me???

This is sickening.

This shoe is the hottest thing I've seen to date for FALL. I saw them on I WANT THEM! I would physically harm (not kill) someone for this boot. It goes with everything, which is my favorite quality. I am so beside myself over this shoe.

But sadly, I'm poor. However, that only means I need to find a wallet savvy version of this boot.
If anyone spots a knock-off let me know.
