Must See Movie: Black Swan

Every now & then a film comes along that leaves you talking about favorite moments once you leave the theater, Black Swan was just that movie experience for me. The film was all together dark, funny, beautiful, and all completely trippy. Natalie Portman gives one of the best performances of her career and Mila Kunis was a standout as well. Trust me when I tell you this is a must see movie.


Christmas Everyday

I don’t know about you, but my holidays are filled with booze, flashing lights, and good times. So far this holiday season I’ve ventured out to Disneyland (the best way to start off your holiday season), a week in NYC, and gearing up for an annual holiday party in L.A. this weekend.

The castle at Disneyland during the holidays is always a sight to behold.

The store display for Fendi on 5th Ave in NYC was one of my favorites.

The fact Cartier sticks with the gift lighting of the entire store continues to be a 5th Avenue staple.

Had time to fit in my 1st Broadway show for Phantom of The Opera.

The cocktails at Spice were so so, but they sure were purrty.

Can never go wrong with the food and drinks at Bar 89.

Now this is the way to get my holiday season started off right. One of my favorite sites Flawless Crowns recently had a giveaway with one of my favorite watch brands Flud Watches. The Big Ben watch is one that is a must have for the season and on my recent trip to NYC it was a moment to hear people in the street admire the piece.

A big face watch with interchangeable straps makes it a cinch to change clothes and go from day to night.

Make sure to follow Flawless Crowns for exciting giveaways and Flud Watches to pick up a piece as a great stocking stuffer this holiday season.

NYC Flashbacks

Me and my bestest Fashionista and NYC Socialite Michelle Ten. A true take that and rewind back moment from New York City. Can’t wait to see all my favorite peeps in the world soon enough!

You know it’s got to be something pretty serious to get me excited about L.A. Fashion Week, better yet to even attend a show. Yes it’s the jaded New Yorker in me speaking, but the Exchange LA was the place to be. When Anthony Franco presents a runway collection it’s a stand up occasion for those with any fashion sense in L.A. to attend. You’d be hard pressed to mention fashion in L.A. and not mention the name Anthony Franco.

Last night I attended the screening of the Kanye West film ‘Runaway’. Read the review here at Roc4Life.com

Leffot Fold Wallet

It’s nothing more annoying than a bulky ass wallet filled with a bunch of things you could do without if you really thought about it. Hence the Leffot Fold Wallet is here for those that only need to carry bills (every now & then) when making moves. The t-shaped fold wallet is constructed in what the company calls, “horse ass leather”. It simply hugs your cash with three simple folds. The wallet comes in a small version for U.S. Dollars or in a larger version for more valuable currencies like the Euro, British Pound, or Japanese Yen.

Scott Campbell has done it again creating a stand out fash-On moment. This time he creates two sick leather jackets with Surface To Air. American contemporary and tattoo artist Scott Campbell uses etched drawings on the backs of each jacket using the famous ‘loop stitch’ technique.

The jacket ‘Dead Fucks,’ portrays funeral inspired drawings using classic Scott Campbell symbolism. The ‘Cobra Jacket’ shows an extremely intricate drawing of cobra heads intertwined and covering the entire back. If you recall I’ve featured works of Scott Campbell on here before.

The Icy Shot

I think I just found the 1st gift I want to add to my xmas/bday list. The Icy Shot is a wonder of a machine for those of us that like a nice chilled shot. Icy Shot cools liquors at 8 to -5 degrees and a simple tap system for less mess along with LED illumination to add some sexy to your bar. Unlike other liquor chillers Icy Shot works without reservoir, so what you drink is pure liquor coming out and instantly chilled from the bottle. Oh Happy Day!

What’s On The iPod

Brandon Flowers ‘Flamingo’

This is totally going to be a personal opinion post, but The Killers are one of  the best bands in the world. So when my boy aka lead singer Brandon Flowers announced he was doing a solo project I was a little sketchy. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised that Brandon really brought the heat on this album. True the songs aren’t as catchy and upbeat as The Killers, but they display a deeper more spiritual side.It’s just enough to hold us die hard Killers fans over until a new album drops 2011.

stand outs: Crossfire, Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts, Magdalena

Bruno Mars ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’

I have to give it up to Bruno Mars, a kid that comes out of nowhere,  jumps on a couple hooks that soar to #1 and releases an album that stands alone in today’s music. ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ features great vocals, thoughtful lyrics, real music that’s clearly a mesh of pop, soul, and doo-wop. The first single “Just The Way You Are” is a fresh take on something you’ve heard a million times in songs, but when Bruno sings it you can’t help but to go there.

stand outs: Grenade, Talking To The Moon, The Other Side

The Script “Science & Faith’

The boys from The Script are back with another winner of an album. The group from Ireland that spent the early part of their career sleeping on the front porch of music producer Teddy Riley’s home just so he would give them a chance are now making waves of their own. The new album ‘Science & Faith’ is a mix of soulful vocals, hip hop, and pop that garnered them such a huge following the first time out. I had the pleasure of not only meeting them at their first stateside performance in NYC, but became a fan instantly.

stand outs: If I Ever Come Back, Long Gone and Moved On, This=Love
