My daddy raised one hell of a bitch. He said that everything that shines ain’t gold. And I don’t pray out loud like him, but I know that my God heals. Heart switches to cold. Radiate vibes off the sun, not a human being. Here comes the sun. Don’t give a fuck, simply.

I’ll take care of you, if you want me to. Just two lovers in the floral beach house. Your silver soul went swimming in La Mar. You’re a vision, a complete illusion. The ethereal cosmic being marked with infinity. This phase of the moon brought us together, eternal dreamers under the sand. Lover of mine.

Chill out. Sip carbon on the side of the pool and wear your favorite snapback. Skeleton rings and spikes. Seeing the world 50 floors up and listening to Simple Plan. A steaming hot tub and a cannonball competition with the boys. Neon laces and 90s aesthetic. No loud clubs with bad vibes, just old fashioned hangouts with the boys on the 28th floor balcony, jumping into the pool and playing music. Sit back, throw your phone on the hotel bed and

Here’s some photos we shot after the BCBG show. I’m stoked to announce that the first photo was taken by WWD (Women’s Wear Daily) and I was featured on their site for NYFW street style. The other photos were taken by my good friend Brandon of fashionfoc.us who also shot the BCBG runway.
Getting ready to head out to the lookbook blogger dinner tonight, my clothes are all over my hotel room & there is a huge pile of furs in the window. What to wear… what to wear…
You wake up in a wild town, sleeping with the windows open. Indigo child of the karma sutra. What will become of the truth when we keep it inside? Dark eyes manifesting the moon. You sleep inside the purest melancholy, the melancholy of the dark side of the moon.

If there’s one beauty product that you should replace often, it’s mascara. We actually have living mites on our beautiful little lashes, so it’s good to change up your mascara every 3-6 months. This will help you avoid building up bacteria that can potentially lead to infection. But with so many mascaras on the market, ranging from 5 to 30 dollars, is it worth it to pay the extra? Or not because it’s something you have to replace so often? I decided to take a look for myself.
I picked three different mascaras all ranging somewhere along the price scale. First we’ve got the classic Maybelline’s Great Lash, followed by L’Oreal’s Voluminous False Fiber Lash, and lastly, Mac’s new Haute & Naughty too black lash.
Let’s start with the cheapest, Maybelline’s Great Lash, retailing in at a mere five bucks. The classic little pink case that your big sister was allowed to have before you. It’s got a custom curl brush to glide on the product smoothly. Shaped brushes seem to help life and curl lashes for thickness. The ingredients include water, beeswax, shellac as well as some other common chemicals. It doesn’t give great volume, but the custom curl brush is easy to use. I’d recommend it for anyone just starting out or not looking to spend a lot.
Next we have L’Oreal’s Voluminous False Fiber Lash. Retailing at a little over 9 dollars, it’s a bit of a price jump. Based off my own test run, and some research, this mascara seems to clump a lot. The brush is pretty ordinary and doesn’t seem to do anything special in regards to it’s volumizing claims. Ingredients include water, beeswax, and surfactants such as potassium cetyl phosphate. The upside to the ingredients in this mascara is that it doesn’t seem to have shellac, which is usually derived from animals and a common allergen for some people. The package says it’s allergy tested. So if you’ve got an allergy it’s probably worth the price jump to get something that won’t irritate you.
Lastly we have Mac’s new Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash. Retailing at a little over 20 dollars, I picked up this product last week and was intrigued by the dual lash system. It has a pink brush for a lighter look and a sparkly purple brush for a heavier coat of the product. The dual system is easy to use, and does look different upon application. The product goes on really well and doesn’t clump. As far as ingredients go, in addition to having water and similar binding chemicals like the others, the Mac mascara contains Panthenol and Acacia Senegal gum. The Panthenol is a provitamin of B5 and usually appears in hair moisturizers and humectants due to its ability to bind to the shaft and create a seal. The Acacia Senegal gum is a natural gum derived from the sap of the acacia tree. It’s used as an adhesive for pigments in many makeup products. Sounds good right?! The downside? In the entirety of this mascara, these two probably take up around 1% or less of it’s total composition. Chemically, that’s not enough to do much of anything.
Conclusion? If we’re talking about the science, these products are virtually the same. So initially you’d say why pay more for the same chemical compound? But what I think you’re paying for when it comes to mascara is the brush. The application process and shape of the bristles has a lot to do with how the product goes on. I think it’s worth paying extra for a better applicator because the end result will be more desirable. It’s especially important to take the small price increase if you know you have allergies.
In the end, it’s up to you. Chemically, you’re not really getting anything different. So if you know how to make miracles with a five dollar brush, then by all means, work your magic mama!

Scared now. All that lady. How we roll. Walk up in this bitch like what. You know my lady always on. I’m where she already knows. She’s sweet like hotel flow. Feeling your style and loving your swag. In a class of our own.
The Editor’s Market must know what I like, sending me a dope ass sweatshirt that looks just like the cover of The Game’s new album. Who ever knew a sweatshirt could be a Jesus piece. Not to mention, they also hooked me up with the killer pants and a velvet jacket. (It’s always so hard for me to find good pants that fit.) Anyways, make sure to check out the Editor’s Market if you’re looking for a good pair of pants to finish up winter and some dope outwear.

Blonde DNA. For the alien boys and girls. For the ones that wear leather pants and skeleton rings to chemistry class. For the ones who get arrested in 6 inch platforms, and surf in soaked muscle tees. For the ones that storm the grocery store with their girlfriend and tear up the shelves. For the ones that started a gang at their private school. For the ones stole from the corner store while taking polaroids at 16. For the ones that create the world they live in. Hoping all of it offends you. Stay high.
Here it is! You can officially get the first product from my new clothing line, Blonde DNA. I’m wearing the “sick muscle tee.” It’s unisex, obviously. I wanted to make something that both bad blonde boys and girls could wear. Of course there is a lot more coming, but I just couldn’t resist giving you guys a little taste! I really love this first tee, mostly for what it says. I’ve also always been into muscle tees, I think they’re sexy on girls and hot on boys. Wear it with your leather pants and tallest platforms.
much blonde love

Storm the night. I wish you could sleep your ugly dreams away. I think you could have an extraordinary life if you cared about people the way you cared about wealth. The smell of success has drained all your other senses. I wouldn’t call you an artist anymore. You could speak a thousand words, and no one would understand you. You have left a life with the ones you love for a life you think you love. And when I asked you how you’d been, I meant I missed you more than I missed anything before.

When I go to stay at a hotel, I usually make it feel as if I’ve moved in. Anyways… these past fews days I’ve been on a much needed warm holiday. It’s given me time to take a step back, and clear my head. I want to outline a new vision for the New Year. So, I’d thought I’d take this oppertunity to ask you guys, What would you like to see more of/less of/ some of on I HATE BLONDE this year? I’d love to hear what you have to say x x
P.S. My clothing line will be dropping this week, so stay tuned!
