F**king Major.

When I find something I love, I become obsessed with it.  I love hard.  It’s just who I am.  The interesting part is that this particular aspect of my personality translates to all aspects of my being, including my obsession with style and love of fashion.

I have just recently come across the brand Tateossian and I have to say, some of the items they carry are exactly my style.  Like the item pictured above.  At $425 and featuring stingray (OBSESSED) detail, this is something that I would absolutely love to own. 

Maybe when it goes on sale, perhaps?

Destination – Mazatlan, Mexico

mazatlan-picture-of-mexico-294 

Could you imagine waking up each morning here?  I may be biased, but I truly believe the beaches of Mexico and Central America are among the best in the world.  This is definitely on my “must visit” list. 

I feel so worldly.  It’s a beautiful feeling.

Stephane Pompougnac – Crave You

Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?

They stare at me, while I stare at you.

Why can’t I keep you safe as my own?

One moment I have you, the next you’re gone.

Behind steps on an empty stage,

That boy’s got my heart in a silver cage.

Why can’t you want me like the other boys do?

They stare at me, while I crave you.

Style Obsession – The PS11

PS11

The PS11 by Proenza Schouler has been on my mind every since seeing it on Mary Kate & Ashley Olson.  It’s the perfect size and comes in an array of finishes and colors. 

I’m actually just really proud of my guys.  I remember back in 20o4 when they were first starting out.  They were just so unpretentious, as opposed to the seasoned professionals.  I wish them nothing but the best.  And that they never lose that aspect of their combined fashion personality.

Keri Hilson – Let Me Down

Maybe you didn’t really need my lovin’,

Not the way I needed yours.

I was only trying to keep it open,

How you gonna slam the door?

Led me to believe we were together,

You were on a different plan.

Just when things were changing for the better,

You became a different man.

If I was you, I never would have left you in the cold in the first place.

And if I was you, I’d be really trying to make a U-turn on a one-way.

Said you let me down. Yeah you let me, let me, let me, let me down.

Musings…

san_francisco

I just got my plane ticket to San Francisco for NYE…I am quite excited to go home for a bit.  I’m even thinking about booking an additional trip to Los Angeles…

Los Angeles = Love.

I was driving from Bellevue to Seattle last night and I thought to myself…”If I could spit on this shit, I would.” 

I think that about sums it up.  Hope that doesn’t offend anyone.  Take care all.

What I’m Loving Right Now #2: Runaway by Kanye West

Everyone knows I love Kanye West.  From his music to his style, his strengths and his failures, I definitely think he’s someone to pay attention to, especially when he’s at his best.  We all make mistakes, he’s no exception.  But he’s taken responsibility for his actions and who am I to judge?

I swear I watched this mini-film a good 10x in a row.  I think it’s brilliant:

“You’re my devil, You’re my angel.

  You’re my heaven, You’re my hell.

  You’re my now, You’re my forever.

  You’re my freedom, You’re my jail.

  You’re my lies, You’re my truth.

  You’re my war, You’re my truce.

  You’re my questions, You’re my proof.

  You’re my stress and You’re my masseuse.

  Lost in this plastic life. 

  Let’s break out of this fake-ass party,

  Turn this into a classic night.

  If we die in each other’s arms,

  Still get laid in the afterlife.”

What I’m Loving Right Now #1: OPI Polish

Sephora by OPI Nail Polish

So…I’ve been obsessed with Sephora by OPI nail color for the past several months now, so I thought it was time to do an official blog post on them.  I usually stick to the classic deep reds and pale pinks, but since being introduced to this line, I wear everything from lavender to jade green.  A few of my favorites include A True Romantic, Metrochic (LOVE), Under my Trench Coat, I’m With Brad, Opening Night ( LOVE) and Rumba Romance.  You know what?  I just love them all…!

I’m in Love…I’m in Love!

sunset

I have always been known as a big city girl – a reputation that I take full ownership of.  I love big cities.  The more overwhelming, the better.  I love the sense of power I get from being surrounded by skyscrapers and high rises.  It fuels my belief of anything being possible.  Anything is achievable.

Yet the truth is, the beach is what makes my heart race.  I love it.  I remember being a kid and just running around the beach each Shabbat with my brother.  That’s the stuff my dreams are made of.

I’d give anything to be there right now.

Corrine Bailey Rae - Closer

I’m in a sexy kind of a mood.  What can I say?  The rain tends to do that to me, and right now it’s pouring in Seattle.  Makes me want to get closer…this is an amazing song by an amazing artist.  Check it out!

“…I want to get close to you, baby…”

Way Too Cool For Words.




I'm kind of obsessed with N.E.R.D. right now. Clearly.

Male or female, you can’t deny the beauty of this video.  It isn’t about the nudity, it’s about the sensuality.  Being a fashion person, that’s something I can appreciate.

Getting the playlist ready for the trip to LA.  A little bit of N.E.R.D., David Guetta, Kanye West.  Some Dirty Money, Black Eyed Peas and some Kaskade.  Throwing in some Seal, just to be on the safe side. 

LA, you better get ready!

Sabre Sunglasses...Freshhhhh!


Kandee looking 100% ready!
Can you tell I'm on my fly shit right now? All of the next couple posts are going to have something to do with "freshness" lol. I am officially there!

"Patent Leather Like I'm Puffy in my Saleen"


So...I kinda need one of these.

The Epitome of Freshhhhh!


Pharrell in Cannes, Cote d'Azure, France. Beautiful as Ever.
I have to apologize, yet again, for my absence. My life has been beautifully intense as of late - so many different projects going on at once. I'm hoping that this hiatus will not be an extended one, and that I can get back to my blogging roots. This is, essentially, what I love to do.
I have to say this, though. Looking at this picture reminds me of where I am going with my life. It's easy to get distracted by those who are in your life, and aren't supposed to be. You can't let anyone distract you from what you are trying to achieve, including yourself. You have to know when to say when. Know when to let go. Know when to take flight.

I Can Feel Your Heartbeat…Running Through Me.

EnriqueIglesias_020_11

I saw you talking on the phone,

I know that you are not alone.

But you’re stealing my heart away -

Yeah you’re stealing my heart away.

Maybe it’s the way you move,

You got me dreaming like a fool.

That I could steal your heart away-

I could steal your heart away.

I don’t know where we’re going…

I don’t know who we are…

It feels like we are floating…

Right under the stars…

So, as you all know, I went home to Roatan, Honduras back in June.  It was an amazing experience to say the least.  The food, the scenery, the people, everything.  There were so many highlights…I think one of my favorite memories was West Bay…I love it there!  The water is crystal clear and so warm.  It feels like bath water!  It was crazy!  I also loved Sandy Bay – it was so much more quiet and peaceful than where we were staying – and there were so many stars in the sky, which were perfectly visible from there.  And then the nightlife in West End was AMAZING!  That in and of itself yields so many stories…lol…that I’ll keep to myself.  But I think the part that I loved the most, but also presented the biggest challenge, was meeting so many different family members, all at once.  So many eyes and so many opinions.  So many different people to focus on individually.  That was hard.  But everyone was warm and friendly, for the most part, and that I can appreciate.  Really can’t wait to go back and explore Roa a little deeper.  It is, after all, my home.

Another Beautiful Picture of Beso, Los Angeles

Beso, Hollywood, Los Angeles




And speaking of Los Angeles, I am determined to hit Beso, Eva Longoria's restaurant, while I'm there. I love going to posh restaurants; it's actually my favorite thing to in my off time. So yeah, Beso is pretty much a priority. Would be nice to make it a date night.

I Need A Pick Me Up! Time For A Change!



So...I'm getting ready to head out to Los Angeles and I feel like it's definitely time for me to do something different with my hair. I am just so BORED and UNINSPIRED and I just don't feel like "that b*t*h" anymore when I'm walking down the street, and that's important!
I have had these pictures saved on my phone because I am INLOVE with Tyra's color here! I think I need to make it happen.
