Ain HD, New Book



Ain HD, is a beautiful poet and writer

I havent had the opportunity to read this book just yet
But from her installments on her blog Honorable Discourse
I am sure this is gonna be a page turner

I miss good poetry and love that she has included writing prompts, creating an intangible experience


[If] Life's Rotten, Write to the Core available on amazon.com and lulu.com

December Snow Faux


Been gone from the west coast for some weeks
We all need the break sometimes
Ive been enjoying being able to wear the winter garb
People just look at me weird in L.A. wearing
the faux fur hat, but its so essential



I have been hanging out with my aunt
I believe fashion style/sense
runs in your genes
love her hat and matching coat


This is a picture of my aunts home,
The snow just makes it that much more beautiful


Warm regards Maryland

Acid in Old Town Alexandria



Just realized there aren't too many things that beat sitting across a (insert handsome) man smoking a cigar in a dimly restuarant having a nice conversation over Bailey's, hazelnut gelato, and Cheesecake.
Too bad I didn't wear my plaid pageboy cap to make the experience complete.......

THE TIME IS NEAR!!! 2 DAYS!!! JIMMY CHOO FOR H&M!!!!!!



The time is approaching for the launch of this season's guest line for H&M, Jimmy Choo on November 14,2009.

The onset of Luxury Designers creating affordable lines in your favorite stores has been a huge project for the past couple of years. It allows everyday people like you and I who necessarily can't afford to pay 900 to thousands of dollars on designer pieces, budget conscience pieces with the same quality and marked with the same luxury brand name.   Target has brought on such luxury designers as Carlos Falchi, and Walmart  has brought on luxury designers such as Norma Kamali, just to name a few.

Check out this video by NYLON MAG giving us the inside on what to expect!!



So really.... Gear up!!  For true fashionistas we will be sitting outside the store like those crazy women on Black Friday with our noses to the window streaming "Open,Open,Open!!! My personal favorite is the thigh high black learther boot(300.00).
FYI:: There is also a men's collection!!!

lASTLY...Here's a hint on which stores to hit up:
In Los Angeles: South Coast Plaza, Beverly Center, West Hollywood
In NYC: Broadway,  E. 86thST,Lexington, 7th Ave, 5th Ave

A day in the office.....

 For shits and gigles...

Kiddie Inspiration





 Top, Pants, Boots all from The Children's Place

My inspiration today came from my 8 year old neice, Atiya. She's the funniest little thing and thinks she's a supastar. Since she had a day off of school, I figured I'd be a nice Auntie Milla and hang with her for the day, unbenounced to her it was more enjoyment for me!

Los Feliz Hangin

I needed air and felt like taking a drive to Los Feliz, a cool artsy fartsy area next to Burbank. I stopped in UNA MAE'S, a women and men's clothing store. Cozy, and ecletic with a great mix of vintage finds and labels like Penguine, BB Dakota, shoes by MIA and TOM'S. She had a 10.00 basket with some cool finds. I'm trying to be good so I opted for nothing. It was tough!

When is it enough?

As I woke up this morning, stumbling out of my bed to head to the bathroom, I felft like I was a contestant on one of those asian shows with the wacky obstacle course. Hopping over Shoes,suitcases,rolling under clothing racks, chairs and this was before I hit my bedroom door....So I was forced to ask myself " When is it enough"... Right now Idk... I'm out of breath from course 1.



Sincerely,
Contestant #1 JC

LOVE..PEACE.. AND SOOOUUUUULLL!!! IT'S BACK!!

Everyone that was born in the year 1980 on down, should know and understand the energy, innovation, new fashion trends and dances that Soul Train so vividly displayed weekly on everyones boobtubes. I remember like it was yesterday, anxiously sitting in front of the t.v. waiting to see Don Cornelious introduce the hottest new band, ,the scramble board, The Soul Train Music Awards, The Lady of Soul Awards and not to mention the soul train line..... aaahhhhh!!! Although in the later years it became watered down, you cant deny what the " Sooooooouuuuuullll TTTrrrrraaaiiinnn" has brought to our culture,(and birthday parties, family reunions, wedding receptions).....( 4 words...)... "The Hippest Trip in America" and it's back!!!!

Check out this vlog by Asha the Intern from the Soul Train Youtube Channel I received via Facebook

New Bio: Richelle L. Brown

This is a Bio for Richelle L. Brown, a new dope artist/singer/songwriter out of ATL, that I recently completed. It took a bit longer than I projected for it to take but I definitely think it reflects her style and music, I was really proud of this one (Interview, research, reflect). Feel free to give your feedback. Look out for here in a city near you!!!!!!



http://twitter.com/RichelleLBrown

Bringing back true moxie and funk to the music sphere. Richelle L. Brown is that missing energy. Crowned the new queen of Electro Funk Dance Music, a passionate singer, songwriter and performer birthed from that gritty red clay and southern spunk of what we innately call Georgia. Richelle L. Brown joins the movement of retro songstresses that are invading the hyperspace experience. Similar to the Acid Jazz wave of the 90’s that garnered such artist as Nadea Davenport; Richelle L. Brown is that new funk.

Her passion for music sparked during a time when V-103 had more than 10 songs in rotation, and her frequent regimen in Conyers, GA was sitting shotgun in her mothers Eagle Summit Hatchback, driving down West Avenue or detouring the back streets as the sounds of The Funkadelics, R. Kelly, Parliament, Janet Jackson, Chaka Khan and Keith Sweat, resonated through her ears.

Fast forward over a decade and Richelle L. Brown’s introduction song, “Swagga Black Country Queen” is that 2009 vivid snapshot of an everyday southern socialite lifestyle, where candy colored Chevy Dunks parade down Peachtree, hipsters dance on the bar at the Royal or congregate at MJQ, and ladies fashionably costumed sporting exclusive knee-hi Chuck Taylor’s under an 80’s vintage dress, showcasing what’s really meant by “country queen vintage exclusive”.

The debut ep, “Tha Example Project” will take you on a voyage of Open Experimental Music thoughtfully constructed to provoke an undeniable progression of music themed by that lifestyle with just the right balance of funk and mojo, that listeners have eagerly waited for. And as open and free as a celestial vessel, the experience of Richelle L. Brown will leave you feeble with only a passion to inspire and move your body.

So lace up your Chucks and enjoy the energy of Richelle L. Brown. www.myspace.com/richellelbrown
