Out of my League?

One of me & my girl Jenn's favorite pastimes would have to be sitting in the living room sharing our new favorite songs. Today was no different, she played Ne-yo's new song Out of my League. Upon listening to the lyrics we came to the conclusion that Ne-yo is either gay, bisexual, or was writing this song for another artist. AFTER thinking this all day I researched it a bit more and apparently this song is about himself in the third person.'s weird.
Out Of My League - Ne-Yo
Not scared to living.. (3x)

He picked me up in a 064.
I never rolled in one of those before.
He shows me things that I’ve never seen.
All of my friends think he's bad news.
Before me sure it been with a view.
But now I’m his one and only Queen.
And everybody says he's to mature, too much for me.
But I’m never ever felt like this before.
Though I can’t ignore..

That I’m scared but not scared to living.
I don't dare I won't deny this love.
I’ll decide what's best for me.
I’m not out of my league.
So scared but I’ll never give in.
I don’t care what they may say about us
Don’t tell me I’m out of my league.
I’m not out of my league.

Never ending days and nights.
When I’m with him I feel so a life.
Every moment feels like a dream.
And everybody says he's to mature, too much for me.
But I’m never ever felt like this before.
Though I can’t ignore..


How do I refuse a love so warm?
All over the year that I was born
When it comes to matters of the heart,
Tell me what does it mean? What does it mean?

Not scared to living..(2x)

I’m scared but not scared to living
I don't dare I won't deny this love
I’ll decide what's best for me
I’m not out of my league
So scared but I’ll never give in.
I don’t care what they may say about us
Don’t tell me I’m out of my league.
I’m not out of my league.

I’m not out; I’m not out of my league.(3x)
I’m not out of my league.

Love of a Lifetime

Annie Leibovitz shoots the tale of two-star-crossed lovers in 7 pictures. Stay tuned for December's Vogue.

The Fateful Night
Romeo: O she doth teach the torches to burn bright!/It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night/As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear—/Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear. (Act I, Sc. 5) *Christian Lacroix Couture

The Harsh Truth
Nurse: His name is Romeo, and a Montague,/The only son of your great enemy. Juliet: My only love sprung from my only hate!/Too early seen unknown, and known too late!/Prodigious birth of love it is to me,/That I must love a loathed enemy. (Act I, Sc. 5) *Proenza Schouler

The Stolen Moment
Juliet: Three words, dear Romeo, and good night indeed./If that thy bent of love be honourable,/Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow. (Act II, Sc. 2) *Nina Ricci

The Promise
Friar Laurence: These violent delights have violent ends,/And in their triumph die like fire and powder,/Which as they kiss consume. (Act II, Sc. 6) *Vera Wang

The Curse
Romeo: This day's black fate on moe days doth depend,/This but begins the woe others must end. (Act III, Sc. 1)
The Ruse
Friar Laurence: Dry up your tears, and stick your rosemary/On this fair corse, and as the custom is,/And in her best array, bear her to church;/For though fond nature bids us all lament,/Yet nature's tears are reason's merriment. (Act IV, Sc. 5) *Dolce & Gabbana

The End
Prince: A glooming peace this morning with it brings,/The sun for sorrow will not show his head./Go hence to have more talk of these sad things;/Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:/For never was there a story of more woe/Than this of Juliet and her Romeo. (Act V, Sc. 3) *Alexander McQueen

Chicken & Waffles

After being made fun of for a bit for ordering a chicken sandwich at Roscoe's, I redeemed myself today, when Fresh and I journeyed to Oakland for breakfast. Moral of the story is, if a restaurant has a specialty that they are known for...ORDER IT!

I just want to be a real boy

Pinocchio Story (Freestyle Live From Singapore) - Kanye West
Wise men say
Wise men say
Wise men say
The baddest niggas out there bro
Never figure out real love
You’ll never figure out real love
You’ll never figure out real love

Its so crazy
I got everything figured out
But for some reason I can never find what real love is about
No doubt
Everything in the world figured out but I can never seem to find what love is about

Do you think I sacrificed real life
For all the fame of flashing lights?
Do you think I sacrifice a real life
For all the fame of flashing lights?

There is no Gucci I can buy
There is no Louis Vuitton to put on
There is no YSL that they could sell
To get my heart out of this hell
And my mind out of this jail
There is no clothes that I could buy
That could turn back the time
There is no vacation spot I could fly
That could bring back a piece of real life
Real life, what does it feel like?
I ask you tonight, I ask you tonight
What does it feel like, I ask you tonight
To live a real life
I just want to be a real boy
They always say Kanye, he keeps it real boy
Pinocchio story is, I just want to be a real boy
Pinocchio story is to be a real boy

Its funny Pinocchio lied and that’s what kept him from it
I tell the truth and I keep runnin
Its like im looking for something out there trying to find something
I turn on the tv and see me and see nothing

What does it feel like to live real life to be real?
Not some facade on tv that no can really feel
Do you really have the stamina...
For everybody that sees you and that say 'where's my camera?'
For everybody that sees you and says 'sign my autograph'
For everybody that sees you and says that 'you all that'
You all that
I just want to be a real boy,
Pinocchio story goes, I just want to be a real boy
Pinocchio story goes...

And there is no Gepetto to guide me, no one right beside me
The only one was behind me I cant find her no more,
I cant find her no more I cant...
the only one that come out on the tour and stay, stay, stay...
Back when I was living at home and this was all a big dream

And the fame will be got caught
And the day I moved to LA
Maybe that was all my fault
All my fault to be a real boy
Chasing the American dream,
Chasing everything we seen
Up on the tv screen
And when I- the Benz was left
And the clothes was left
And the hoes was left
You talk the hoes to death thinkin the money that the-
You spent the doughs to death
And tell me what-tf for a real boy

They say kanye you keep it too real boy
Perspective and Wise man say, one day you’ll find your way
The wise man say, youll find your way
The wise man say, youll find your way
The wise man say

A Woman's Perfect Breakfast

A Woman's Perfect Breakfast

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton..

Alexander Wang

Native of San Francisco, designer Alexander Wang is extremely talented. I have been loving his work for some time now and love his effortless designs that evoke such a casual style

What Makes Me Feel Better..

Really bad days at work encourage "retail therapy" and it sure doesn't help when you work in none other than: retail. These are my doctor's orders...Miu Miu's on left, Gucci's on right. As of tomorrow thanks to my good ol' retail discount, I plan to follow the prescription accordingly.

Ladies in charge of all relationships with men? Katt said it!

Ok, so we can all agree that Katt Williams brings up a valid point. There are many men that have been dumped due to their 2% inefficiencies; whether it be he forgot your b-day, the anniversary, was bad at returning calls....I mean we're not talking the major stuff..i.e. cheating, lying (now thats a big 2%!) The point is - It's always going to be a love/hate thing. Many of my girls have been having "man problems" lately...and as much as we despise men at certain points...I have to remind them that the other sex despises us too.(duh) I mean, how can they not be mad that they will never be one step ahead of our complexities? Ha, okay the moral of my story is..-->if you can't beat em join 'em<--..Im all for a little venting..but I'll step up to the plate and say I also love 'em.  You wont find a 100% man...but you will find a 98% man you love and you will work around 2% of whatever he lacks..and if it doesn't work ---> Replace 'em. xo

The new Gold Standard?

"Chanel has loads of style currency, and Karl Lagerfeld is making things literal. He produced these candies to celebrate the 125th birthday of Coco Chanel. On one side is the grand dame’s portrait; on the other, a “5.” Sorry, the number doesn’t refer to the cost–these babies run around 5,900 euros. No wonder only four coins have been minted!"

a love

It was a weird day...

Bare with me, I've been out of a camera for a bit so my phone has been filling in.
It started off when a friend & I went shopping, we passed by Anthropologie, and their display caught my eye, but not in a good way. I thought it was tacky, & confusing as to why they would make a skirt out of wood and put it on their mannequin

Leaving marin we had to go the gas station. OK...let's take a moment to see that they were selling FAKE LOUIS VUITTON bags in a GAS STATION in MARIN. I could hardly believe it.

We decided to go out and meet with friends at various places. After searching for parking endlessly we found a space, and i looked up and saw this spray painted on the alley wall. I thought it was beautiful. It could have been my love for graffiti but I think it was the words that I loved.

Good news & Bad news

Ari Gold <3

There's a reason why I don't have cable in my house. One I don't have time to watch t.v., and two I don't like to get addicted to shows, and three there is mostly junk on t.v. UNTIL there came Entourage. It's like Sex & the City for men...and women too. I was completely hit by a bus last night when I found out it was the Season 5 finale of Entourage. Those that didn't see it, better get on their HBO onDemand. So where's the silver lining? Entourage is up for another season that will begin filming in January of 2009, and the season will premier in the summer of 2009.

Ahoy Captain

Can we talk about this for a second?

So I'm home with the family for the weekend, and I never watch t.v. But since I am home I figured I'd watch a little with the fam bam. AND THEN this commercial came on...seriously? This has to be a joke. What has happened to quality entertainment on television? Instead it's bad advertising, and shitty reality t.v.

An Ancient World

One of the ancient maps of the world
is heart-shaped, carefully drawn
and once washed with bright colors,
though the colors have faded
as you might expect feelings to fade
from a fragile old heart, the brown map
of a life. But feeling is indelible,
and longing infinite, a starburst compass
pointing in all the directions
two lovers might go, a fresh breeze
swelling their sails, the future uncharted,
still far from the edge
where the sea pours into the stars. -Ted Kooser

The Double Club is now open

Prada has opened a new nightclub in London. Revolving dance floors, yellow patio furniture, Andy Warhol pieces, sounds like perfection to me. Tagline: "A bar, restaurant and dance club where the Congo meets the west; A bar, restaurant and dance club where the west meets the Congo."
