Have The Rules Of Girl Code Completely Been Forgotten?

Going through your high school years are very difficult, luckily I'm at my last year, but in these difficult years it helps to have good friends that you can lean on. Sadly I've never known how that feels since mostly I have guy friends who could care less about my problems and my girl friends are either too consumed in their own lives and problems that they completely over look mine, or they stab me in the back so many times I'm surprised I can still stand. In a way it seems kind of ridiculous to me that I can't rely on any of my girl friends because I consider myself a very reliable and understanding person and I don't understand why I can't receive the same treatment.

I guess these are the years that make us stronger though right?

I fell in love with Mac Miller the second I heard him on one of Chris Webby's song I Need  A Dollar but once I heard his own music I have nothing but respect for him. He is only 19 years old and there's no question that he's going places. His music is so fun and he has made huge moves in music, which he deserves because he works hard. I'm also in love with his clothing merchandise, and its about that time for my birthday so hopefully someone with love me enough to buy me this sweatshirt, tank top, or baseball tee.

These are two of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books, Looking For Alaska by John Green, one of the best books I've ever read .

Back To Reality

Everyone has problems going on in their lives and every so often we get consumed in our issues and for get that there are other and much bigger things going on in the world. I'm speaking from experience. The last couple of weeks haven't been the easiest weeks for me, usually I can move on and be productive, that has become easier to say than to do. We always need a little reminder that others have it worse off than we do and be thankful for what we do have. For me that reminder was this song.

I'm not the biggest Justin Bieber fan but I love this song. Hopefully we'll all be seeing better days

Beneath the legend


Elizabeth Taylor & James Dean on the set of Giant
Elizabeth & Jimmy on the set of 'Giant'
"When Jimmy was 11 and his mother passed away, he began to be molested by his minister, I think that haunted him the rest of his life. In fact, I know it did. We talked about it a lot. During 'Giant' we'd stay up nights and talk and talk, and that was one of the things he confessed to me."
-Elizabeth Taylor


James Dean.


"He was unreliable, evasive, and above all else an insomniac, so he looked like hell most of the time. Barely ever combed his hair, he had a cigarette always dangling from his mouth, he couldn’t have been shabbier."

~ Dennis Stock (on James Dean

“It was so clear that he was a special person. Every moment that you spent with him, you knew you were with an original. Strange, and peculiar, and arresting, and… you couldn’t take your eyes off him.”

Mark Rydell


James Dean and Corey Allen, March 23, 1955

“I got cast in Rebel and I wanted to see what I was working with.  And I was so awed by what I saw in Eden.  I got to the set and I was scared, [but] I thought I’d take the bull by the horns and go introduce myself to Jimmy.  He was sitting there and there were a bunch of kids around him and they were fawning over him.  And I just walked over and said, ‘I’m Corey Allen, we’re gonna be working together.’  And Jimmy said [without looking up] ‘Yeah, hi.’  And he refused to do more than that.”
-Corey Allen

Rebel, with or without.

I think this is called venting...

z asked by neekerzzz & rachweasley
Now, I'm a very out-spoken woman. You can bet I have alot to say. But it also takes me awhile to get to the point of no holds barred. I know that I am strong and courageous when it comes to expressing my feelings but I have a censor that prevents me from sometimes saying it exactly how I think it.
Remember I said its ok to be angry dolls? Well it is.
If you never respect your anger you can never expect to finish healing. Live in it temporarily...not forever.
Me being the classy girl I am I had to use a little bit of audio therapy to somewhat express what I've been thinking.
It's comical (in my eyes) yet true.

"Marvin's Room (Can't do better)"
JoJo, you get three snaps in a Z formation for this one!
Sad but true, this is how the scenario goes sometimes. And sometimes concrete things like this need to be said. It's all part of the process. Ladies you can love them but don't let them belittle you or make you feel like less of a woman. You are the prize and worth so much more. If they don't know now, they'll never know and if they learn it'll be too late.
In the mean time, give them one good kick in the ass and a neck roll then move on with dignity.

Real Talk with Vinny Vandalizm

Check out SuperTrash on!

"At some point you have to stop playing hero. Some people cannot be saved from themselves and sometimes it is not your job to save them. I’d like to think the reason they cannot be saved is because they need to self-destruct to be reborn again. From the bottom you can only go up, just have faith they will find their way to the surface." - Jasmin Rodriguez a.k.a. Vintage Vandalizm

Couldn't have said it better Jasmin! This gorgeous lady above is a fellow blogger and friend of mine. I've never actually met her, but being an active fan of her work we've built an e-friendship within the last year. She has inspired me so much more than any megastar has, maybe that's because Jasmin is a megastar she just hasn't been exposed to the masses. Trust me, she'll get there :)
If you're looking for fashion, abstract/avant garde, creation, vintage and insight please explore her blog.
You will get lost in it and understand why this girl is one of a kind!

Umm Hello.

Can't get enough.

Why we love Incubus...



“If I turn into another, dig me up from under covering..the better part of me. Sing this song, remind me that we’ll always have each other..when everything else is gone”.
Honestly what's not to love about Incubus? Anytime an artist can lodge memory into all of your senses by only using one sense as the tool, please believe it's magic. That's what Incubus is to me, magic.

I thought I'd post a more hopeful song. This is the most hopeful I can get at the moment after recent events. This song represents the thin line of love and hate. How someone can be both your strength and your weakness at the same time. You can hate them for it but at the same time you remember why you two love so hard, thus leaving you hopeful for a more positive outcome. The very person who breaks your heart can also be your savior, but it's only through these hard times that you learn what is really true.
It's just my interpretation from the view that I have.


                        and how much do we adore Brandon Boyd? We don't have enough time!



"Once we pranked my dad [Quincy Jones] and she acted like she was Christina Aguilera. She was asking my dad to do something on her record and she was just singing, and he totally believed it was her. When he was like, “What number can I call you back at?” she gave him my home number. He still didn’t realize that it was us! I called him right after and he goes, “Christina Aguilera just called me.” but then he looked up the number and he figured it out."

—Kidada Jones on her times with Aaliyah

Knowing that Aaliyah and I both have the hamming activity of impersonating Christina Aguilera and pranking people in common brings a smile to my face. I swear it's one of my favorite pastimes.


Aha! I really wonder what he was thinking!

Why we love Drake...

Can't nobody tell me nothing about Aubrey Drake Graham. I've been in love with this kid since his eyebrows and his afro connected. Ok, all jokes aside, its been astonishing to watch him flourish as a well rounded artist. His talent is so multi-faceted and his lyrics are so brutally honest/open you almost feel guilty for listening. The songs I replay on my Ipod at the moment happen to be "Marvin's room" and "Trust Issues" ft. The Weekend. He went to town on those two. I really appreciate his ability to tap into his generation and convey common issues and feelings in a 4 minute song. Go on wit yo' bad self Drizzy!

"Trust Issues"
Drake x The Weekend

"Marvin's Room"


A characteristic of the most potent and authentic love

"Somebody loves you if they call you out on your bullshit. They’re not passive, they don’t just let you get away with murder. They know you well enough and care about you enough to ask you to chill out, to bust your balls, to tell you to stop. They aren’t passive observers in your life, they are in the trenches. They have an opinion about your decisions and the things you say and do. They want to be a part of it; they want to be a part of you."

By Ryan O’Connel


Why we love Adele...


Yes Boo!!!
Adele's voice, her lyrics, her entire album can provide therapy for any heartbreak.
She's so real and exactly the kind of artist our generation needs right now...and she keeps it real. lol.
Anyway, this song, "Turning Tables" is my audio therapy choice for the day.ENJOY!

Femme Fatale

Dolls & Gents, If you haven't seen "Gilda" I highly recommend that you do. Rita Hayworth is absolutely stunning and mesmerizing in it. I promise you that you will fall in love with her!

drink in your twenties...

"the hardest period in life is one’s 20s. it’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous & you’re physically in peak condition. but it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. when you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening. it would be wrong to think that you’re always right and correct and perfect and brilliant. self-doubt is the thing that drives you to try and improve yourself."

-Helen Mirren


Someday I will receive the loyalty and support I exert from someone special.
But I will always be the biggest contributor to my happiness.

My feelings exactly Mr. Matthews. If only I wasn't the Cory in my equation. That may be my biggest flaw, being loyal to a fault.


This weekend Kenya and I hopped in the car to escape to the beach and forget all of our worries. It was just what I needed and it felt good to spend time with my best friend. As we both continue to grow up it seems harder to maintain our sisterhood, but our bond is pretty sturdy.

Beyonce: Year of 4

After just recently viewing Beyonce's promo documentary I couldn't help but immediately post.
I was so inspired by her hunger to learn and grow as a woman and the fearless gusto to make mistakes.
It seems that in life you are constantly tested. Each day, there's a different hurdle.
As you all have seen from my posts the first half of the year was a bit of a roadblock for me, so to see someone with a fresh outlook on obstacles resonated with me.
Each aspect of my life is in limbo right now. Not one has reached its full potential of fulfillment. Love isn't right at all now, work is lack luster, I'm only there to make it financially and my family is constantly going through the motions. Kenya has been through so much within the last few months.
Despite all this, watching this gave me hope as a young and ambitious woman. I can't wait to come out from under and show myself what I AM REALLY CAPABLE OF, just as Beyonce constantly does.

So, if you haven't seen this documentary, I highly recommend it.
As an artist I can say I have a new found respect for Bey.
