Why am I so Paranoid?

Swine Flu duh ! I am pretty sure you readers already know details, therefore I will not go into them. If you do not know, google it. The Swine Flu is not a joke. I have seen people wearing masks already. It is an airborne disease. Cover your mouths when you cough and sneeze. Don't pick your nose and grab the poles on the train. That is not cool. According to Web Md, my source for anything medical (I am a hypochondriac) here are some symptoms and some prevention tips: 

What is swine flu?

Like people, pigs can get influenza (flu), but swine flu viruses aren't the same as human flu viruses. Swine flu doesn't often infect people, and the rare human cases that have occurred in the past have mainly affected people who had direct contact with pigs. But the current swine flu outbreak is different. It's caused by a new swine flu virus that has spread from person to person -- and it's happening among people who haven't had any contact with pigs.  

What are swine flu symptoms?

Symptoms of swine flu are like regular flu symptoms and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills, and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu. Those symptoms can also be caused by many other conditions, and that means that you and your doctor can't know, just based on your symptoms, if you've got swine flu. It takes a lab test to tell whether it's swine flu or some other condition.

If I think I have swine flu, what should I do? When should I see my doctor?

If you have flu symptoms, stay home, and when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue. Afterward, throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands. That will help prevent your flu from spreading.

If you've got flu symptoms, and you've recently been to a high-risk area like Mexico, CDC officials recommend that you see your doctor. If you have flu symptoms but you haven't been in a high-risk area, you can still see a doctor -- that's your call.

Keep in mind that your doctor will not be able to determine whether you have swine flu, but he or she would take a sample from you and send it to a state health department lab for testing to see if it's swine flu. If your doctor suspects swine flu, he or she would be able to write you a prescription for Tamiflu or Relenza. Thosedrugs may not be required; U.S. swine flu patients have made a full recovery without it.

ow does swine flu spread? Is it airborne?

The new swine flu virus apparently spreads just like regular flu. You could pick up germs directly from an infected person, or by touching an object they recently touched, and then touching your eyes, mouth, or nose, delivering their germs for your own infection. That's why you should make washing your hands a habit, even when you're not ill. Infected people can start spreading flu germs up to a day before symptoms start, and for up to seven days after getting sick, according to the CDC. 

The swine flu virus can become airborne if you cough or sneeze without covering your nose and mouth, sending germs into the air. 

The U.S. residents infected with swine flu virus had no direct contact with pigs. The CDC says it's likely that the infections represent widely separated cycles of human-to-human infections.

How is swine flu treated?

The new swine flu virus is sensitive to the antiviral drugs Tamiflu and Relenza. The CDC recommends those drugs to prevent or treat swine flu; the drugs are most effective when taken within 48 hours of the start of flu symptoms. But not everyone needs those drugs; many of the first people in the U.S. with lab-confirmed swine flu recovered without treatment. The Department of Homeland Security has released 25% of its stockpile of Tamiflu and Relenza to states. Health officials have asked people not to hoard Tamiflu or Relenza.

Is there a vaccine against the new swine flu virus?

No. But the CDC and the World Health Organization are already taking the first steps toward making such a vaccine. That's a lengthy process -- it takes months. 

I had a flu vaccine this season. Am I protected against swine flu?

No. This season's flu vaccine wasn't made with the new swine flu virus in mind; no one saw this virus coming ahead of time. 

If you were vaccinated against flu last fall or winter, that vaccination will go a long way toward protecting you against certain human flu virus strains. But the new swine flu virus is a whole other problem.

How can I prevent swine flu infection?

The CDC recommends taking these steps:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Or use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.
  • Avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your mouth, nose, or eyes.

 Can I still eat pork?

Yes. You can't get swine flu by eating pork, bacon, or other foods that come from pigs.

What else should I be doing?

Keep informed of what's going on in your community. Your state and local health departments may have important information if swine flu develops in your area. For instance, parents might want to consider what they would do if their child's school temporarily closed because of flu. That happened in New York City, where St. Francis Preparatory School in Queens closed for a couple of days after eight students were found to have swine flu.  Don't panic, but a little planning wouldn't hurt.

No longer bored ...

I loooooove American Apparel because they carry X-small. I am a skinny mini, unfortunately I can't find clothes that fit all the time. For the past several months I have been bored with American Apparel merchandise because it has been the same for a long time now. I was filled with excitement and ready to go shopping when I saw the New styles email. You will most  definately see me wearing a few pieces for the summer!

Lily Allen concert footage

So you know I went to the concert last Monday. Lily is SENSATIONAL. She is a great performer. Who else looks hot smoking a cig and dancing crazy on stage , while not caring that her nipples are showing? I really relate to almost all her songs... especially "fuck you". Every time someone doesn't believe in me, I play the song and always feel better. That's just what you have to do... dust people off right ? lol. Here is one of my favorite Lily Allen songs... I am pretty sure that a lot of you ladies can relate.

NPSH Rocks !

I went to the Lily Allen Concert with a couple of friends (shout outs to : Kathy, Marlyn, Jonathan and friends) we had a blast from opening to closing. The opening performance was by a diverting band from Seattle, Washington by the name of Natalie Portman's Shaved Head. Check out some footage from the show:

LMFAO LMFAO HA HA HA , as I fall off my chair ...

Once Again..

My intuition had to know that there was always something wrong with trying out for America's next top model .Side Note: I'm watching re-runs as I type. I have been really close to trying out about three times and I just never went through with it. I try to go through with everything that comes across my mind. When I don't , there is always a reason as to why . So according to multiple sources, The second casting after the chaos was total bullshit (excuse my language). They had already picked the finalist. Here is a preview of the article:
So Tyra Banks has somehow sold the dream that you can be anything you want to be — even if you want to be a model, weren't born looking like one, and there's nothing you can do about that. Yet she rejects thousands who believe her — making them feel terrible about themselves — while she plucks girls who actually have a shot at making it from the street like most model scouts. And what's worse, she doesn't even go to the auditions to spout off about girl power. We wish we could suggest that meant she has realized she's a walking contradiction, but she's just too, too dense.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter witnessed how upset I was last night. I was headed to Mr. West , happy to party for one of my boys B-days. I got out of the cab and walked towards the front. The guy at the door was turning people away. I stood back to let him finish what he had to say to them. He was saying that it was a private event. Confused, I stepped back to contact one of my friends. I thought they probably changed the venue they were holding the get together in. As I was about to pull my phone out my friend appeared at the door. I walked towards him. The door man immediately mentioned "They are not getting in." I became even more confused. At this time there is a girl standing in front of me. He tells my friend loudly, in front of other people ," She's fresh, but they are not." The girl and I had the same kind of outfit on. Black leggings, black leather jacket and pumps. The only difference was that she had a sprouse on her arm and I had a vintage clutch in my hand. I stood even more confused. The girls that were with me were of taste also.
After standing outside waiting for my friend to try to get us in , another friend of mine came to get us. As we were walking towards him the door guy said "Make sure they don't get in through the other door," with an even louder tone. This is when I decided to leave because I was furious.
WHO THE FUCK did he think he was. I have gone into Mr. West so many times. I have even gone in my flat boots and jeans. This time I was dressed. I am not an ugly girl and I NEVER get turned away at any door. I am not a groupie, those that know me and chill with me know that I just go out to hang out with my friends. I could care less about who else is there and who is not. AND i do not sneak in though back doors. ITS NOT THAT SERIOUS. The dude really embarrassed me and made me feel like shit. Not so many people would admit to feeling like shit after an incident like this, but I will admit it. I felt as if there was something wrong with me.
It was like dude was going on a power trip , you just work the damn door, calm the fuck down. It's disgusting how there are people in the world like him. I understand the night life really well, and I understand how they prefer attractive people. Like I said. I am not ugly, I was not in my Pj's , I wasn't even wearing jeans, I was decent or shall I say "fresh". I may have not been wearing a sprouse, but it was not because I can't afford one, I do own expensive bags. I just choose not to wear Louis V. like everyone else does. I just happen to be a Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Minkoff and Rachael Nasvik kind of lady.
I know you are probably asking yourself "why doesn't she let it go?". I wish I could let it go , but I still woke up mad this morning because I am still confused as to why I was not let in. I was disrespected and treated like a piece of scum. I treat people with respect and I demand to be treated the same. After my rant on twitter I received a good amount of replies. People knew exactly who I was talking about. Some were even saying that dude is racist, others don't want to step foot into Mr. West. Thanks to the idiot at the door the reputation of Mr. West is not so great anymore...

Im still confused ...

I just don't understand why Cassie did this to her beautiful hair. I mean it looks hot and trendy but in the long run, what will it look like when it starts growing out?

Buzy Gurl Diaries ...

Happy late Easter ya'll. I must say this weekend has had it's ups and downs, but that is life, right ? Friday I was feeling very creative and headed out to the fashion district to get more supplies for Endless Noise. I must say I have been making progress with this line. I would have never thought that in 2009, I would have people going crazy for pieces created by me. Life just keeps taking unexpected turns and I appreciate them all , good or bad because it makes me who I am and takes me where I want to be.
It's amazing to walk around the city doing something I am passionate about. It makes the days seem brighter even when they are gloomy such as it was on Friday. I walked around the Fashion district with no worries, just letting my creativity lead the way. I purchased some really great stuff and got right back into the subway. I heard salsa music and had to stop to record :

I got home and got right to work . Here is the magnificent piece created on Friday night:
Awesome right? I wore it out the same night and the response was great. Saturday was another chill day, I worked on fulfilling orders all day and then headed out to Jersey with Girlz Talk for their performance.

Today I woke up extremely tired but I was happy to see my family especially a couple of little ones that I have not seen in about two months. It's tough to keep up with everyone when you are trying to reach for the stars, but you always have to remember that family comes first and you should take the time out to spend with them.
