    I feel like this looks just like me ^_^

    I think her art is Harajuku cute with a mix between French Fafi cuties and Kawaii Japanese Gyaru girls. When I launch my makeup line, I’d hire Jess to do all the campaigns!  My wish for Jess. 1> for her amazing success with her art!  2> do a collabo with some beauty brand 3> get on Pinterest and have cookies and cupcakes made of her art 4> stuffed animals and iPhone cases! 5> become the next tokidoki.

    Sooooo as I went through her illustrations, I felt this uncanny feeling of familiarity… When my friends tell me I look like a cartoon, I never realized that it was true. Thanks JessMindful for confirming my true identity. I am actually a cartoon!

    Hong Yi is Dope

    Shanghai based visual artist Hong Yi did a sock portrait with 750 pairs of white, grey and black socks.  I love it!

    Describing her inspiration, the artist said: “When I first moved to Shanghai, I stumbled upon an old residential alleyway and saw bamboo sticks poking out of windows with laundry hanging onto them, waving in the air. To me, that was incredibly beautiful. And the amazing thing is seeing something so traditional in a modern, pumping city like Shanghai

    Go Beyonce Go Beyonce!!!

    I dunno about the title, it just seemed right, avoiding the rhyme. ‘Countdown’ is the track… but this video, to me, is a testimonial to the husslaaa that is Ms. Beyonce Knowles. Even while “with child”, she’s on the grind, making it work. Visually, this is one of the most engaging videos she (or anyone else in a mainstream environment) has done in a very long time! Drums, thong, Andy Warhol, pop art, head shots… I Love this video, take it in and applaud with me! xo

    Va$htie, an inspiration and leader who knows what she wants in life.

    Vashtie Kola was born and raised in Albany, NY to Trinidadian immigrant parents, and now resides in New York City. She is a success, known for as an Artist, a Creative Director, Music Video Director, and Party Promoter.  Her nickname is “Downtown Sweetheart” and that she definitely is.  A question to ask her is what doesn’t she do? She has directed music videos for artists such as Kid Cudi, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and more. If that isn’t enough Vashtie also owns a clothing line, Violette.

    As a director, a designer, and a party promoter, Vashtie pursued all her dreams and doesn’t just stop there.  She believes in those who aren’t afraid of showing how they truly feel. Her type of environment is where everyone is welcome. No barriers. Do you, be you, come together, and have fun!

    Violette, her own line, is a mix of everything you can think of from hip-hop and rock and casual and couture, for example. It debuted in Fall 2008 and has gone global in countries such as in France and Japan!

    Be inspired today by this beautiful Downtown Sweetheart! Here is Vashtie on Facebook and don’t forget to follow her on Twitter. Her channel on YouTube is something to check out as well! 🙂

    Thursday – The Weeknd

    Thank God for twitter… lol!

    … The Weeknd has a new mixtape called Thursday, released last Thursday on the site! Exciteeeeed since I’ve blown House of Balloons (the last mix) out on repeat, I’m sure there are grooves in the cd at this point! Needless to say, I’m listening as I type and so far so good, to none of my surprise. Find the download below. Of course you’ll hear the melodic, eerie, indie, urban sound from the last album, with its own vibe… I’m obsessed with the drumroll!  You’ll catch a verse from Drake on a track called The Zone, of course you’ll hear plenty about love and much about sex… “Don’t make me make you fall in love with a nigga like me” — try to ignore this! Go… Click ‘Download’ NOW! #xoxo
