Merz- Lotus............sob at the Creativity....SiCkNeSs!

A great song by an incredible artist. It took me a while to get this video, but if you listen to the words as you watch it......timeless. If you still can't get it, here are the lyrics that helped me:

"we sit in cars
we sit in planes
you're dead right
for me

you're dead right
you're always right
you're on the right
side of me"

Fashion Update.................Nelli by Janice Jaraicie....Me Likes!

What I love about this brand is how it seems to fit on the model. Some of you are probably wondering what I mean.....well, this is a brand and style that seems to work well for the fully figured woman....the active woman....the ball player...the track and field star....The model is definately toned, and her shoulders show you that she stays active....yet the clothing sit so perfectly on her that her activity is not seen up front....just beauty lined with beautiful clothing.
But don't think Nelli is only for the active woman, because their website caters to all women and shows a sophistication and simplicity through color.....enjoy!

Check out the Fall collection byNELLI

Taken from Nelli's website:

"Born in Hong Kong, raised in both Saudi Arabia and Montreal, Canada, and having established the successful Nelli clothing line while living in San Diego, California; Janice Jaraicie’s dynamic make up has guided her creativity to be translated in the clothing she designs. Inspired by the classic elegance of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, and ingenuity of modern day divas Betsy Johnson and Carolina Herrera; Janice Jaraicie crafts with the feminine, confident, graceful woman in mind. A love for world travel, music, sports cars, and the ability to speak four languages, this glamour girl lives life to the fullest and has a talent that demands the attention of the fashion world. Quality natural fabrics such as silk, cotton, and wool blends are used to create the quality that allow for each piece to contour the female body; the epitome of comfort and style. Fashion trends are merely guidelines; individual taste for simplicity, sophistication, and style embody the elements of what is Nelli by Janice Jaraicie."

BETA spaces 08................Someone Might Be Going Out On A Date!

BETA Spaces
(Bushwick Exhibition Triangle of Alternative Spaces)

Check out the full poster by clicking

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 9th, 2008 from 11am to 7pm
BETA Spaces is a day of multi-disciplinary group art shows, which encourages artists to transform the private and public spaces of Bushwick into exhibition spaces: living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, studios, streets, subways, sidewalks, and gardens. The festival will take place within a 10-block triangle south of Johnson Street, east of Bushwick Avenue, and west of Jefferson Avenue. The compact geographic nature of the festival is designed to provide the public an unbeatable opportunity to visit dozens of venues and experience hundreds of artists within a short period of time. (In comparison, our annual Bushwick Open Studios Festival (BOS) usually features 100+ locations spread geographically across 3 square miles!)

Make A Difference.....................With Style!

As you should know by now, I am a strong supporter of change and bettering not just our communities, but the world......It's always a great feeling to find other brands and companies with similar interest...."Designer Jamie Lim has found a way to combine two of ’08’s big themes, social enterprise and large specs, with her creation of the sustainable sunglasses company KAYU" josh spear. The great thing is that each pair sold pays for sight-restoring surgery in Ghana and India through Unite for Sight........pure SICKNESS!

Taken from KAYUs website:



"80% of blindness is curable or preventable, yet 36 million are needlessly blind. Avoidable blindness is most common in the poorest of the poor, and has far-reaching implications that touch on all aspects of human development - social, economic and quality of life. Eliminating preventable blindness is one of the world's most urgent problems and one that persists due to a lack of funds.

At KAYU, we believe that no person should remain blind if they don't have to. That's why KAYU collaborates with Unite for Sight, Inc. ( in promoting the elimination of preventable blindness by contributing $50.00 for each pair of glassses we sell. So -


One pair of glasses = One sight-restoring surgery. Make a difference, give the gift of sight."
