Hump Day Wednesday: Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2011

So, I felt kind of guilty for always posting eye candy for the ladies, but today I have a special treat for the fellas!!

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2011!!

This was probably the best one yet sans Tyra Banks. First off, the costumes and lingerie were ridiculous! There was a lot more creative freedom this year. I still have yet to pick a favorite. Maybe the superhero one, the yellow and blue one, I don't know. The tutus were cute too though. Then to add even more envy, Jay and Kanye performed (with Beyonce on the side cheering her two favorite boys on), and it was freaking insane! (See the performance below.) N*ggas in Paris is my jam. Hell, that whole album is my jam. Ms. Minaj performed and of course that was awesome as well. I just want to follow her around for a day, just to study her logic. Maroon 5 showed up and showed out too. If only we could've been in that audience...

Here are the highlights...your welcome guys. =)

We should've been there! Maybe next year! (Gotta dream big.)

s/o to @Yardieiz4life for posting the videos. #Salute!

It's Tattoo Turkey Day...I mean Tuesday!

My fourth favorite holiday is coming up on guessed it! Thanksgiving! Or as I like to call it, the last day of peace between the Native Americans and pilgrims before the pilgrims gave them syphilis and smallpox among other things, which is why I only celebrate this holiday for the food. However, let's not dampen the mood.

It's freaking Tattoo Tuesday!

To show how thankful I am for all you guys, here's a tattoo of a turkey.

Yum. I can just see him all basted now.

Happy Thanksgiving Guys!

The New York Chronicles Pt. 2: The Boys!

During my stint in NYC, I got to ogle and drool over my two most favorite things fashion and BOYS! They were everywhere, duh. (This is New York.) Did I mention a lot of them were hotter than the Alabama sun in August? Like the great Calvin Harris said, "I like all the girls." However, it this case, I like ALL THE BOYS. All of them. Cuteness knows no race or style (sometimes).
Now, everyone in New York has their own style, but there are still those few who practice that individualism within a genre...a fashion genre if you will.
So, I observed many a guy, and I've compiled a list of my favorites. Note that not every New York male fits into these "genres." There are still some guys that are just normal. Whatever that means.

Now, let the list commence.

Hip-Hop Hipster

Snapback? Check.
Skinny jeans? Check.
Retro/Specialty sneakers? Check.
These are the type of guys who frequent Supreme or
Urban Outfitters in search of quirky t-shirts.
They're usually pretty young, like high school young.
However, they sure can wear those jeans.
Example used: The Cool Kids. 

Man Fashionista

He's so chic. He dresses way better than you
and anyone you know. He looks like he just
stepped off the runway. He even walks like he's on a
 runway. You kind of love to hate this guy.
This guy may come with a man-bag, and you're
never sure if he's gay or not.
Example used: Trussardi-1911

The Standard Hipster

Note: Hipsters may vary, so I picked the one I saw the most. However, a hipster male can always be found in Williamsburg and identified by his flannel.

This is your standard hipster.
He has facial hair.
He has a skull cap.
He has a flannel shirt.
He will always have that discerning look
as if he knows everything, and you know

The Hampton Look

It's like the preppy look, but with a little more douchebag
sprinkled in. Think of Chuck Bass walking the streets of 5th Ave
near Bergdorf's always on his iPhone with his polished hair
and pastel duds. Of course, he has amazing bone structure,
and he probably models for fun because he's too rich for a job.
Yet, you still want him because of all the above reasons.
Example used: Spurr Spring/Summer 2010 

Chic Punk

His favorite band is The Ramones or The Clash.
His hair is perfectly a mess. His Doc Martens are
fresher than the day he bought them, and he hates
everything. He's dark yet stylish. His jeans cost a fortune, but
his shirt came from the Goodwill. He's the bad boy that coordinates.
Example used: Baliman Spring 2011

So many guys, so little time. I can't wait until my next trip!

The New York Chronicles, Pt. 1: The Style

I was only in NYC for a month, but I've learned so much. I learned the subway, which was so hard. The goal is to know the difference between uptown and downtown. It sounds borderline retarded simple, but it's confusing when you're in the subway trying to figure out which way is Times Square. I learned that the native New Yorkers are super nice contrary to popular belief. All the people that I met that were from NYC I instantly clicked with. They taught me how to ride the train (thank God). They showed me the best places to shop. They took me to bars where I had my first beer (I'm a cocktails kind of girl.), and loved it! Most of all, they were just as interested in Southern culture as I was in NYC culture. New Yorkers are super nice. It's the transplants that feel that they have to be hardcore to live here. That's what a native told me, and it's true.

These things were all great, but what I really wanted to learn was the style, and what I discovered was that there wasn't a major trend everyone followed or a distinct New York City look. People dressed how they wanted, and it blew my mind. Every single person down to the little kids had their own style, their own look. Every style is equal. No one cares if you don't have style either. There's way too many people walking around to focus. Everyone does their own thing there. That's not how it is here. Everyone dresses pretty much the same, and if you step out and do your own thing, you're an outcast.

Now, even though NYC is all about individualism, I did notice a couple things that a lot of people do.
Some girls actually look like these models. Seriously.
1. Layering. It's fall. The weather was nippy sometimes. Instead of just picking an outfit and putting a coat over it. People make a whole ensemble out of it. Simply, I saw a girl once who had on a Peter Pan collared shirt underneath a pink sweater top with a denim vest and a bomber jacket, jeans, and boots with socks. I've seen people layer more. Wearing a huge coat isn't cute, unless you have no choice. Plus, all that walking around makes you warm, and you'll end up taking the coat off anyway.

I love the laces. Polka dots are my thing.

That girl was wearing these exact ones!

2. Dr. Martens. Every other person has a pair on! I have always been intrigued by the boots, but didn't think I was punk rock enough to pull them off. Fast forward to NYC Fall 2011, even the preppy kids dabble in Air Wair. I loved it! You can literally wear them with everything. Everything! I saw this girl on the J train from Queens with a pair of platinum ones with black laces (see above). I almost died. They were so gorgeous. So, I vowed to get myself a pair, despite my just barely big feet.
Floral 1460.

Pearl Pink 1460. I die over this one.
The point about New York City style is that there is no NYC style. People wear and do what they want. They realize that people will talk no matter what you do, so why not just be yourself and do your own thing. 

That's what I love most about New York City.

Oh...and the boys.

It's Tattoo Tuesday! Connecting the Dots.

Check this...

Interactive body art is the future.

I'm not sure yet if this tattoo is cool or stupid. The people in my head are still debating this one. I like it because it's clever. It's like a mystery tattoo left up to those who want to figure it out. I like that. The fact that it's a giraffe is what's bothering me. Giraffes are cool as animals, but as tattoos...seriously?! Why couldn't it be something cool like Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force (I'm totally watching it right now!) or a bunny. Bunnies are way cooler as tattoos.

Basically, I think connect-the-dot tattoos are cool. I would do something like this. It's a convo starter. It gives people something to do when they see you. It's a great way to make friends and meet guys, which I always love. However, when they connect the dots, what would they get?

It's Tattoo Tuesday! Breakups Edition!

To mark this glorious day of the pending divorce between Kim K. and Kris H., let's go over the reasons why you should never get a bf, gf, man-friend, cutty-buddy, husband, or wife's name tattooed on your body. (Not that they did it, I hope.)

1. Just because you like someone doesn't mean that their name needs to be branded into your skin. Get them a real gift like a gift card to Macy's or a body wash set from Bath & Body Works.

2. Showing your love for someone by tattooing it on you doesn't mean it's going to last forever like the tattoo will, because just like that tattoo, one day you may have to remove the person you claimed to love so much six months ago.

3. If you haven't been dating and living together (simultaneously) long enough to be considered common law, then you need to consider getting a different tattoo like a skull or a bunny.

4. The divorce rate in America is like 1 in 2, which is 50% (maybe higher), so if you haven't been married be on the safe side....for 3 years or more, don't even think about tattooing each other's names on your bodies. Marriages these days are fickle and fleeting. Within the year, you're back on the dating scene.

5. If he or she has cheated on you, doesn't matter how many times, DON'T DO IT!

6. If you've been engaged for longer than a year, and it's not because money is too tight for a wedding right now, but because maybe one of you is stalling, DON'T DO IT!

7. If you just met this person between yesterday and six months ago, married or unmarried, I know crazy sh*t happens in Vegas, but DON'T DO IT!

8. If your other half treats you like crap on the sidewalk, DON'T DO IT! A couple tattoo very rarely warms a cold heart.

9. If you want to put the tattoo somewhere you can hide it, THAT'S A SUBCONSCIOUS SIGN!!! HELLO!!! DON'T DO IT!

10. If you're the only one getting a COUPLE'S TATTOO, then DON'T DO IT! You're not going to be a couple for long, and you'll be the one who has to live with the result of it every day.

Just remember kids, love is awesome. 

However, few loves last forever, but unfortunately (in this case), tattoos do. 

Think before you ink.
