Cirque Eloize "ID"

"West Side Story gone Hip-Hop Circus" The Gazette from Cirque Eloize on Vimeo.

I went to this show on Saturday night and it was so amazing. It is Cirque Du Soleil meets hip hop and break dancing. I only went because I found a deal for the show on travelzoo.com and when I left I was completely mesmerized by what just happened. I would highly recommend that if you get the opportunity to go see Cirque Eloize perform their show, "ID" then go and do it, you won't be disappointed.

Save me and I will save you.

Marc Jacobs rings, $3

I was browsing around in the Marc by Marc Jacobs store the other day and I came across this phenomenal steal; Marc Jacobs Latin rings for a mere $3. What can I say, I'm a sucker for accessories so I bought 4. Now if you are lucky enough to live where there is a Marc by Marc Jacobs store than you are of the elite that has access to these rings and other fun and reasonably priced accessories.

Here's the secret guide to what each ring means:

Nemo Nisi Mors - No One But Death Shall Part Us
Veritas Inlustrat - Truth Enlightens
Serva Me Serva Bote - Save Me and I Will Save You
Inter Nos - Between Us
Tibi In Omne Tempus - For You Forever
Datum Amore Ad Defend - Given In Love For Protection

Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa getting married?!?!

The rumors have begun and no one is denying it so we are going to have to assume that this is the real deal. I guess Yeezy taught her well because after only a few months of dating Wiz Khalifa is ready to propose to the one and only Amber Rose. I really can't believe it. My opinion, Amber you can do so much better. How do you go from a rapper like Kanye West to Wiz Khalifa? I'm just saying, I usually like to upgrade.

Shawn Chrystopher... I Wear Glasses 3 Mixtape

Gotta admit I've never really heard of dude before but I'm feeling this mixtape. It's fun and I'm all about trying something new. Actually that applies not only to music but to men too... I'm just sayin... But go download his mixtape here--->

H&M Fashion Against Aids

H&M's Fashion Against Aids Collection went for an unisex look this year. I like Keri Hilson's jumpsuit although I'm not sure I want to see a boy rocking it but at least 25% of the proceeds go to charities. Why not shop and help the world all at the same time?! I wonder if that would count as a tax write off... I'm just saying.

Look for the line to hit stores April 26th.

Stolen Girlfriends Club Runway Show

New-Zealand-based Stolen Girlfriends Club holds their show in a grocery store in New Zealand. Hmmmm.... very interesting concept to say the least, however I forgot about the clothes until half way thru it because I was too busy looking at the "set". Very fun show, not too effective showcasing the collection.

Sweet'n Up The Bedroom Ladies!

Things feeling a little dull in the bedroom lately?! Come on ladies, you're better than that. Live a little... talk dirty... switch positions... SPICE IT UP! Check out these sweet ideas to turn it up!

Who needs diamonds when you have a purrrrty candy necklace?! Turn it into a edible garter and tell him to dig in. ;)

Oh em geeeee.... I use to LOVE these thingys! Take it back with candy buttons. Peel off the dots, lick the back then stick them to all the places you want your guy to pay extra attention to. He has to eat them off your body before you switch roles.

We all know where I stand with chocolate, it's always sexy. So throw some Hershey's in the microwave for 15 seconds and get it nice and hot... you know what to do now. Rub it in between those thighs, nipples... and well, get creative.

The rest is up to you, don't let the bedroom get dull or you risk the chance of your man getting sweet with someone else.



The Ugly Truth.

I got another side that I never show to you.
A side where everybody is disposable.
Relationships are never a threat cause I'll erase the history and act like we never met.

xoxo, Samantha

PUSHA T "Cook it Down" Video!

Pusha T - Cook It Down

So from the title "Cook it Down" and from what we know of Pusha, I think it's safe to assume that the title speaks for itself, but listen closely.... not quite what we think. Sounds like he's going in on the music industry. Pusha T "Cook it Down" is definitely a go! Can't wait for the mixtape!!!!

Tumblr is my newest obsession.

If you are not up on Tumblr, you should start, now. It's one of my favorite things, aka obsessions.
Tumblr is a blog but more simply put a blog with only pictures. It's super dope and I'm a little bit in love. It will be much easier to just show you so go check out, you won't be disappointed.

The Greatest Rapper of All Time Died on March 9th

Yes people he died on March 9th and it was not his birthday. So yesterday a bunch of people got their facts completely wrong and start tweeting "Happy Birthday Biggie".
I mean reeeeeaaaaalllly.... This is unacceptable behavior.
All of you who jumped on the Happy Birthday Biggie bandwagon are now grounded until further notice! You are also never aloud to enter into a hip hop debate or say that they are a true hip hop fan! Understood?!?!

Biggie was and still is, one of the most influential rappers of all time. I miss the days of his storytelling rap where his lyrics painted us such a brilliant picture. So please show him a little more respect next year and on March 9th tweet to the world you miss him, RIP, or we'll always love big poppa, not Happy Birthday. This was definitely an epic fail people!

Here's what the real hip hop heads had to say to the "happy birthday biggie" twitter idiots....

Every time someone tweets "happy birthday Biggie" someone is dying in this world

CMONSON RT @hasdivinepowers: To everyone tweeting "happy bday biggie" it's actually the opposite of his birthday. Cmon son.

And everyone that tweet "Happy Birthday Biggie" .... your foolish, log out.

how you suppose to be a biggie fan && you saying happy birthday ?

i mean if you hate google so much, you coulda used BING RT @NesterDean: Happy birthday #biggie R.I.P.

J'adore WildFox

J'adore Wildfox and I do, I do. They make me want to be a bad house wife. I love their style and the whole Marie Antoinette thing is fun too. This year was the first time they made it to New York Fashion Week and they were no disappointment. This is a playful look and recommended for all the naughty housewives, the lushes, the party girls and the fashion risk takers. If you don't know, now you know.

Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, Fashion Fetish.

Marc Jacobs WOW's us again with his fashion fetish show for Louis Vuitton's Fall 2011Paris show. His inspiration was the hotels of the world and the people that come in out of them; hookers, wives, bellboys.
The models enter the stage from elevators, just like a grand hotel lobby, wearing caps like bellboys and then the show ends with party girl Kate Moss walking the catwalk why smoking a cigarette.
As if that isn't enough there are also handcuff accessories, thigh high stockings and all the glam and sexiness that can possibly be packed into one show. I'm not usually a Louie fan but this is amazing...

Hellz Bellz x Mata Hari

So Clutch, $90

The Speedy Satchel, $193

So Hellz Bellz collaborated with luxury handbag line, Mata Hari for 3 bags; a clutch, a scatchel and a bottom studded bucket bag. I think Hellz really needed to step out and be a little edgier with this one. Be Hellz Bellz, be undefinable.

The bags are made of leather and the glove does come with the clutch (that's a dope touch). But they are offering out these handbags for pre-oreder at a discounted price or (oh no) you have to wait for May for them to hit stores. I think I'll be waiting and see how I feel about these bags then. Just in case I'm the only one who doesn't see what the big rush is you have until March 11th to pre-order your bag.
Soooo you better hurry... Pre-Order here--->

Knuckle Duster Mug, $24

I want this. I'm already a bitch in the morning so this is the perfect statement for me: Let me finish my coffee or I will kill you.


Just a little freestyle for ya

These boys can dance better at 10 then most people I know. I have a nephew and I think it's time he started hanging out with these kids on the playground...

Wonder Woman x MAC Makeup

This is gonna be fun. Wonder Woman is the inspiration for the MAC Spring 2011 collection.

"Compacts and cases are done in the character’s signature royal blue, fire-engine red and taxi-cab yellow with an eye-popping Wonder Woman logo. The eye shadow lineup includes iridescent white, pink and bright silver shades, as well as dark forest green, olive-bronze and lime with yellow frost; mascaras are done in shades of purple, green and blue in addition to black, and nail polishes are available in bright red and navy blue."

The Purple Tape... Always a Classic

Guess I was sleeping when Rocksmith teamed up with Wu Tang and made some limited edition shirts but either way, this Purple Tape one is ill! If you don't already understand the meaning of it then it's entirely too late to explain... I want one so I can cut it up and make it into a dress.... Yepp it will be fly. And boys feel free to hit on me why wearing The Purple Tape shirt...

This is why I love Nas

Kweli is so dope.

I really loooooove!

My Eyelashes > Your Eyelashes.

Here's why...... So during Fall '10 Fashion Week I ran into so many gift bags. Half of the shit is random; Gift cards, candles, eye shadows, perfume, nylons.... BUT I ended up with this "Falsies" mascara from Maybelline. I have been a loyal bitch to my Maybelline in the pink tube ever since my pretty ass could apply mascara.... HOWEVER... This mascara has changed my life... My eyelashes are poppppppin.... You have to get involved!!

Mood Makeup... Huh?!!

Coming from the most moody bitch on the planet, yea... I admit it. (That's the first step isnt it?!) This is quite an epic find. So this is Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Powder. But um, can it really turn the moodiest bitch happy?!! Well, apparently it's infused with Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins.... WORD!

Late Pass.

Yea, Ima week late blogging the new Jay and Ye track and about 38 years late on the meaning of "ham". Hard as a muther fucker?! Ehhhhhh.... whatever. Song is ill tho! #duhhhhh And um, Jay got this.

Lie to Me... If you think you can

After watching the show Lie to Me I was completely intrigued. This is a show based on the idea that all people have the same microexpressions or facial reactions to certain emotions. So immediately I went to Google and started researching microexpressions because if this was a real science then this could be a handy tool in life.

Turns out this is a real science and Dr. Paul Ekman has been working on it since 1960. He has countless books and even teaches workshops on learning to read microexpressions. Dr. Ekman says, "When people deliberately try to conceal their emotions (or unconsciously repress their emotions), a very brief–1/15 to 1/25 of a second– facial expression often occurs, invisible to nearly everyone. Despite efforts to conceal any sign of emotion that is felt, leakage may occur in very small hard to recognize fragmants of expression. These tiny changes also can occur when an emotion is just beginning, often before the person knows they are about to act emotionally."

So I am ready to learn all about how to become a human lie detector or at least learn if any of my boyfriends are lying to me. Powwwww........

Check out Dr. paul Ekman and his research here--->

Gutter Rainbows

Kweli is going to drop his latest album, Gutter Rainbows on January 25 so in perfect music industry fashion a few "leaks" or "singles" have surfaced. Kweli absolutely holds a spot in my top 5 MCs so I'm hoping that this album rivals his Quality album.
