special delivery: VINTAGE KNICKS BASKETBALL SHORTS (AND ALL BLACK E’RYTHANG )

I’m SO stoked on these TEAM ISSUED VINTAGE KNICKS SHORTS from the early 80′s! Personally I think current issue basketball shorts are more like baggy capri pants and I prefer this poom-poom cut more…right ladies?!

special delivery: NOUS SOMMES x GRACE JONES CHAIN

Whenever the homie JOSH MADDEN speaks, everyone should listen. I know I do, because he just knows “whats up” before the masses do.

A couple weeks ago he put me on to NOUS SOMMES a duo of two cute frenchies who make jewelry, specifically chains with iconic busts of pop culture influences.

Upon a trip to France, Josh was able to meet the duo. Apparently they were very sweet and gave him many chains to take home with him and in pure Josh fashion he shared the wealth. I was given a gorgeous GRACE JONES piece that seems just to remarkable to wear…but, I will!!!

special delivery: LIZ LOVELY COOKIES (VEGAN)

I first stumbled upon LIZ LOVELY cookies a few months back while shopping at my local health food store. When I couldn’t find my favorite raw macaroons, I asked the cute and slightly hood Dominican girl cashier about Liz Lovely and she gasped for air…”What? Liz Lovely cookies are the bomb”. I was sold and quickly stocked up on “Snicker Dudes”, their clever name for their Snickerdoodle Cookie.

I came home and took my time analyzing the package. It was so adorable. There was information on LIZ and how the company started and a little bit about how the cookie was named. Inside each package there are 2 cookies, which is explained on the package – “We put 2 big cookies in every pack. Liz likes to call this ‘Soulmating’. So share the love and make a friend.”

This cookie was as described by that cashier…THE BOMB! Now every time I go back and try and re-up they’re always sold out. They’re so good I totally understand!

I checked the website and they also have GLUTEN-FREE COOKIES!!!

LIZ LOVELY


To say it is a ‘great vegan cookie’ would undersell it. It’s just an amazing and delicious cookie that HAPPENS to be vegan. So, all you non-vegan eaters — do not be afraid. It DELICIOUS, free of naughty ingredients, completely organic and with no gmo.

I recently got in touch with the amazing folks at LIZ LOVELY and raved about their product. They ended up sending me a wonderful care package of all their products. They were such super cool peeps, that I’d be so down to go to VERMONT and do a “vashtieTV” episode on them — if the let me :)

I’m currently conducting a serious taste test of every product and thus far have found all products to be flawless and amazing. I highly advise you order online or go to your local health food store or WHOLE FOODS and “do what it do”.



*VLAD the kitty not only approves, he also tries and steals bites.

*first of all, the package was sent in a bed of “ECO FRIENDLY PEANUTS”. I read the note about how they dissolve in water and quickly took to my sink!


*Amazing!!!

***SPECIAL THANKS to LIZ LOVELY and COWBOY DAN. I live by their product and highly suggest you try some right away!!!

This is the most amazing “BEFORE & AFTER” (see WHEEL OF FORTUNE).

As a fan of both ZACK MORRIS & MORRISSEY, this was like a hug for my teeny bopper past life that was lined with bouts of depression.

Thanks to JOSH MADDEN, who drew this amazing piece of artwork…and to DANA who collaborated with him.
