The new Supreme SS14 Collection is here, and if you are wondering if the lines outside of Supreme are worth it, my answer is YES! Big thanks to Chris Alborano for shooting me in some of my favorite pieces. Check out the pictures below and find more of Chris’ work HERE!
Kelela, a D.C-born and L.A-based singer, is one of my new favorite artists and when I say I listen to her every single day, I listen to her all day every day. Her music is the perfect mix between 90′s R&B influence and a bit of “electro funk.” Kelela stated her music is “not just weird, it’s deliberately off-putting.”
Last Friday I went to Toronto for my very first time to DJ for the Che Kothari & Wan Luv’s Launch alongside DJ Huggy Bear, DJ Mensa, DJ Lissa Monet & many more at Tattoo! Despite me being jet lagged from London & some other insane hiccups, I had a nice time. There were tons of amazing vegan/raw restaurants and I got to meet the artist Gyimah Gariba whom I met online a few years ago after he made some incredible art of me.

The green room had all my favorites from my rider. In case you don’t know what a rider is, it’s a list of the basic needs that an artist/DJ needs that the promoter provides. My list is pretty simple; raw nuts, raw vegetables, hummus, water…oh and whiskey and champagne. What? I mean, you just never know.

DJ Mensa, killing it.
That is right.

Afterwards, we went to a rad afterparty…
The next day I went to Live (after Gyimah suggested it since it is all raw and vegan). It was THE BOMB. Amazing amazing food!
Before I left, Gyimah gave me a goody bag for the major hiccups I endured during this trip.
This was my 3rd time in London and I really started to like London. My first time there years ago was a bit of a let down…ONLY because growing up in the States, you think Europe is so foreign and different. When I got to London, I was unimpressed only because it felt like New York…which is why I like it now. In general, I’ve come to appreciate it for the rad city that it is. Oi.My sweet room at the Ace Hotel. It felt like a cozy camp.
The artwork scared me though…
Hahaha, this scene was so ridiculous.
Tea at the Ace Hotel. Delicious.
The “12 Years A Slave” Party was much more than I anticipated. Grace and I were urged by our friend Irene that it was a dressy affair and made sure that we got the picture and that we didn’t arrive dressed as homeless tomboys. Well, we got the picture and we came correct. We got there early and took one lap around the party…only to realize halfway around that we walked past Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, chatting with their table mates.

The End! BUT – check my Instagram for my Naomi Campbell story. It’s EPIC!
Saturday, I met up with Grace and friends at the ICA to watch an incredible Cheryl Dunn Documentary about street photographers in New York City. It made me long for home, but it was cool to be watching it in London. Although I was terribly jetlagged, I tried to keep my eyes open…
We had a nice lunch at Mildred’s afterwards…
Later I attended the Notion Magazine Party…
Vana Tallinn was a liqueur that Grace urged me to try. Apparently, it’s Estonian and in Russia people drink it straight to stay warm. Hey, why not. It had a sort of licorice flavor, but not in that gross way. It was cool.
We had dinner at Casa Negra with the girls. Sharmadean Reid, Grace Ladoja, Coco and Me.
Grace, Tremaine and Sharmadean.
Later, we stopped by Edition Hotels for the House of Holland Afterparty.
