WISH LIST : Missoni for Target edition

Photos from All the way up here






From the Daily Love ...



"Everything you take for granted is a blessing. Everything you fear is a friend in disguise. Everything you want is a part of you. Everything you hate you hate about yourself. Everything you own does not define you. Everything you feel is the only Truth there is to know.

Everything you wish for is already on its way to you. Everything you think creates your life. Everything you seek for you will find. Everything you resist will stick around. Everything you let go of stays if it's supposed to. Everything you need is right where you are.

Every time you bless another your bless yourself. Every time you blame another you lose your power. Every time you think you can, you can. Every time you fall you must get up and try again. Every time you cry you're one tear closer to joy. Every time you ask for forgiveness, all you have to do is forgive yourself.

Everyone you see is your reflection. Everyone you know mirrors you. Everyone wants to be happy. Everyone wants to live in joy. Everyone seeks a higher purpose. Everyone breathes the same breath. Everyone needs love to survive. Everyone has a purpose to fulfill.

Everyone's the same as everyone else. We just get caught up in labels, names, skin color and religion. Everyone's the same as everyone else. No one wants to feel the pain. Everyone's the same as everyone else. Everyone is dying for love to remain."

What do you think ?

Word on the street is that Snooki will launch a fragrance this Fall. The thing is that she does not have a scent or a name for her product. What do you think would be a great scent and name ?

Outfit of the day - Savage Beauty edition

Jellyfish.

Woke up early this morning to catch the Alexander McQueen exhibit before it goes away for good (Tomorrow is the last day). I have not been going to museums like that since I have not had the time. Good thing I went this weekend. I had no idea that if you show your Bank of America card you get in free at participating museums during the first weekend of every month. I was able to see the exhibit for FREE , how awesome is that? Anywho. The line was INSANE ! I waited on it for about 3 hours and a half but it was totally worth it. I was not able to take photos of course (though i did manage to sneak in a pic of my fav outfit). It was just awesome. McQueen had such a talent to work with feathers, shells, basically anything you can think of. I am glad that I had the patience to wait on that line.

Outfit of the Day - COMPLEJO Exhibit edition

I went to the COMPLEJO opening the other night with my sister and  cousin.  COMPLEJO by  Tony Peralta explores complexes people of color have regarding hair texture, skin color and etc. It was inspired by the recent controversy sourounding Sammy Sosa , the Dominican former Major League Baseball star who used chemical products to lighten his skin and straighten his naturally curly hair. If you did not know already Tony is also the designer behind The Peralta Project. Yeah, the mastermind behind the famous "Defend Uptown" t-shirts and tanks everyone has been wearing in The Heights. You can now check out the exhibit at the NoMAA Gallery at 178 Bennett Avenue @189th street (3rd floor).

"Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve. I was determined to try. I was determined to try because, frankly, my life was such a mess at this point, what - what was the worst that could happen? Everyone turn me down? Big deal."
