ZARA for the Crib

Zara now sells homegoods which I thought was a great thing since it's known for bringing affordable on-trend fashion to the masses. Why wouldn't this translate to items for the home? I visited the site, and it does have great items for that modern chic look, but I was expecting more color mainly because I'm looking for an affordable duvet cover in deep dark purple. I didn't find what I was looking for, but the site is mos def worth the visit. Go to www.zarahome.com.

Luv This...a balance to Nicki's Barbie steez....

From the Fashion Bomb Daily

" Mattel unveiled its newest addition to the Barbie range, ‘I Can Be President Barbie.’ The toy company tapped Chris Benz to design the doll’s outfit, which features a smart pink blouse, jacket with red, white, and blue ruffle trim, and skirt in a vintage Chris Benz fabric. The designer explained to Styleite why he put Barbie in a skirt rather than a pantsuit: “I think just in terms of not being overtly masculine, a skirt suit is that classic silhouette that I think is really, really polished and pretty. I think pants sometimes take it to a different territory — a little bit sportier.” What do you think of the new doll? (Styleite)"

I heart the diversity of the dolls too. The Asian doll even has straight hair.

Day26 Got A New Video Out, Really?

In other Making the Band alum news, Day26 is still making music sans Que. I haven't been up on MTB news, guess I finally got a life because a Day26 fan gotta work hard to find them. They have like zero promotion, publicity or presence in the industry. It doesn't help that each member seems to promote himself first, group second. They can still sing though and the song is nice. See for yourself.

Go Dawn! Werk!

Ole girl been grinding HARD. I've always had a love hate relationship with Dawn, but in my cali accent, "Little homie got heart." The song and video aren't too bad either. Good Luck, gurl!

Mrs. O On Letterman

Though the actions of her husband have dimmed the light on Michelle for me, it's only a little. I still luv this woman. Isn't she stunning?

Obama 2012?

It’s an election year, yet again (Time flys, right?) and I will vote for Obama again albeit with a little less zeal as the first time. I’ve been riding with Obama this past three years, but the last couple of months have cast some disappointment his way. I’ve had to write a letter or two. It started with the Troy Davis situation; yes it was a state issue but he could have at least acknowledged the situation. The same goes for Trayvon Martin; in this case I believe action is appropriate this is a civil rights issue. I can’t hide it; I was hoping he would acknowledge Whitney’s death. She is an icon. I just kept hearing Kanye’s voice saying “Barack Obama does not care about black people,” in my head.

I’ve always used the argument that he is not the black president and that the reason the black community is may seem to be ignored in the national agenda is because we don’t have a cause per se. Gay people want the get married and Hispanics have the immigration issue, but to me black people have too many issues and we have gotten our “cause “together yet, but anyway. Barack should at least acknowledge our losses; he should know we’re an emotional people.  BTW, I believe no amount of assistance from government can alleviate our problems, we have some deep rooted emotional and mental issues, but that’s another issue.

Oh and I’m against this pipeline thing, it just doesn’t seem like a good idea for the environment or the poor Americans who will have to build it. Someone will get rich off of this and the wealth will not be distributed. So yes, Barack is not perfect and I have to admit he has let me down, but he still has my vote.

I’ve heard a lot of talk from black people about voting for Ron Paul and so
me people are declaring that they won’t vote at all; either choice is not good. American people, black people especially have this hero, great hope, paternalistic savior view of people in power which is dangerous because you will always be let down. I’m not genius but I understand the political system and the branches of government and democracy. A politician is a politician his goal is to get re-elected, but as voters we hold great power. A politician will do whatever voters want to hold his position. During an election things get sticky and heated, but instead of transferring that “Captain Save Us” burden from one man to another, we should make demands of the ones who currently hold offices. And let's be real Obama has accomplished a lot and these Republican losers are freaking scary and let's just be real, stupid and arrogant and therefore dangerous.

Strides have been made in gay marriage, health care and at first the White house made a statement about not commenting on the Martin case, but I’m pretty sure President Obama was made aware of the angry black mothers and young people demanding some attention to the matter. So voices are being heard, just not the ones hoping and wishing to get saved, but the ones threatening and demanding action.
