    New Beginnings – Jesse Jones

    We are so proud of our good friend Mr. Jesse Jones and want to take this moment to wish him the best of luck with his new endeavours; banner label TEN81 and U-ology 101, his newest initiative for empowering youth.

    Many of us know Jesse from the Marc Ecko Sylus DJ Awards as the man responsible for brand management of three of Timex Group Canada Inc.’s brands; TX, Marc Ecko & Nautica Watches.

    In late 2009 Jesse officially launched a division of the Jones & Jones Group called TEN81, which helps brands truly connect with their consumers through non-traditional strategies involving lifestyle based marketing initiatives. TEN81 is also home to the U-ology 101 Project due to launch February 2011.

    U-ology 101 3 KEYS:

    1: Uncover It
    Study yourself closely to identify all of the things you are passionate about

    2. Talk About It
    Communicate your interests and passions to those who’ve made a career out of what you love

    3. Be About It
    Create opportunities to showcase & refine your talents

    Our love and support goes out to Jesse and all his works, we believe in your passion to become  more and help others to reach their fullest potentials! Cheers to you!

    If you want to be inspired by Toronto’s own ‘Brand Architect’ – he’s your dude.

    I took this from his Facebook: About me….hmm…man…I’m just that dude…passionate as hell about my friends, my family, and my goals. I give a large amount of credit to my parents who knew to raise me with the kind of mental toughness I would need in order to make something of myself in this uneven world we live in. It’s almost like feeling as if I have this protective shield around me that keeps me strong against, evil doers, haters, backbiters etc. If you know me, you know I’m driven, driven as hell…A busy dude, always working on new ideas, trying to carve out a niche for myself. At the end of the day I’m about connecting with like minded individuals – people that are about something, people that want to advance themselves and their careers. It’s all about the laws of attraction – I’m a firm believer that if we all profess and put forth the vibes and feelings of what we want to achieve, we will, no doubt, end up connecting with those that can help us manifest and achieve those things. Guess that’s why you’ll always see me articulating and marketing the things and people I associate with.

    Sequins Love

    Le Malek designers at Fashion Showdown rocking sequins

    My fly girls over at 2Bitchzdeep know what I’m talking about! I am a big huge fan of sequins! These are shiny little disks that reflect light. Not to be confused with SEQUENCE which means the timing of how one thing works after another.

    It must have been the numerous ballet recital costumes that have me wanting to catch that ray of light. TopShop is having a huge sale and they have a great feature on how to wear sequins both day and night. It is perfect to jazz up that outfit and to take things to a new level. Sequins boleros were popular a few seasons ago and seem to be making their way back this SS09.

    I have a great zebra sequins oversized bag that I to tote around. This is a great example of a fashion trend that is made for the bold. But, that being said, a little does go a long way. Look at this top for example.

    I think sequins skirts are cute when paired with a simple cotton tank. Not feeling the sequins leggings but I do love these Harem Pants!
