â€œâ€¦New York shadow duo ASTR step back into the light today with a brand new single called â€œR U With Meâ€, and our answer is a resounding YES. Picking up where they left off with the surgically precise, â€œOperateâ€, this oneâ€™s a sonic wrecking ball that finds the satellite midpoint between head and heart and stands out as their finest offering yet. â€œ

When Elle and I got that news that Young Scoozle aka Scott “Past Tense” (thanks to Nike for that alias) Williams would be playing in the Nike Basketball Summer Is Serious Game, we were dead bent on attending! If you follow my blog, then you may be familiar that we like to watch Young Scooz play. The game took place in Brooklyn and was filled to the brim with folks…even mobs of people outside trying to get in.
This kid was hilarious. He was too cool for school and dead set on getting an autograph from Kevin Durant, which he succeeded at.
Afterwards, Elle and I went out for a drink that she loves in the hood – “dark and stormy’s” but the machine was down so we settled for simple rose’ next door. Elle happened to have a mustache…you know…we roll with props 24/7.
In her bag, Elle had the anonymous notes that I left on her bed every night we stayed in Old Lyme for our mini group vacation…They still make me laugh uncontrollably as I was attempting to scare her in the middle of the night at that country house…
Which note would scare you or make you laugh if you found it on your pillow in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere?
I’m 100 years old and I still love Teen Vogue and now I’m gracing the pages of this adorably sized publication as a grandmother! I’m stoked!!! The issue is on stands now and discusses one of my latest and greatest projects that I’ve been secretly working on since March 2013. I wanted so badly to share this with you guys and I felt like I was lying every time I never mentioned it…but here it is! As Creative Director to Ice Cream Girl I am excited to be working with my friends at BBC/Ice Cream and happy to be making clothes girls like us…
I’m loving the music Miss Twigs has been making and I am obsessed with this video for “Water Me”.
It’s slightly reminiscent of a (Queen Mother) Bjork video that I love just as much…check it out! It was directed by Inez and Vinoodh.
I got some beautiful handmade goodies from my friend Nyri and her jewelry line, Love, Nyri. You can check out more of her pieces and shop if you like at:
Stoked to get goodies from Grillo’sÂ Pickles via my friend Dennis Todisco. After I spied them on his instagram I shared my drooling desire for a stack and the company sent me a sweet package. This company is from Boston and is famous for their 100 year old family secret style of pickling! I actually got these a while ago and grubbed them so fast, I barely took any pictures.
Samsung is on their A-Game and always makes sure I have a fresh device on deck. With the recent release of the Galaxy S4, I was luckily on the gifting list that got me one of these sleek and slim bad boys. I am a stickler for design and this phone follows suit. I’m excited to get to know it better!
My head is still imploding over this gift. My dear bud, Josh Madden, shocked and surprised me after he gifted me these amazing and adorable socks. I mean…hello…it’s Morrissey! You know how much I love this man or as Elle refers to him “that sad man on all your t-shirts”. I am so siked and everyday no longer feels like Sunday.
Does this get any cuter? Like, seriously!
Since I was a young girl, I’ve been intrigued by the male species.Â Aside from the obvious attraction, I was more fascinated by their masculinity, style, interests and mannerisms. Now that I’ve graduated to adulthood,Â that fascination has expanded into grooming.Â How a man grooms his facial hair, why he decides on a beard vs a clean shaven faceÂ or where he goes for general maintenance is intriguing. A guy can look one way for Spring with a mustache and look totally different for Winter with a beard.
Grooming also begins to divide the boys from the men and women who are equally involved in their ownÂ personal grooming find this aspect very attractive.
I asked 11 of of my guy friends (including: A-Trak, Victor Cruz, Steve Nash, Jonathan Mannion, Josh Madden, Nigel Sylvester and more!) where they go for male groomingÂ and here’s what they told me…

I seriously don’t think I’ve been to the beach in 2 years. That realization came to me this past weekend as I got packed for the beach with Angelo Baque, Rafael Rios and Friends. I remember making sure I’d be at the beach every single weekend when Summer was around and now I make a trip every two years?! What the hell is happening to my life? Where are my priorities? I feel like the lame adult in those kids movies that is out of touch with fun and all serious, but then at the end of the movie they like quit their corporate job to take the kids to the playground or skip their promotion to see their kids dance recital (tangent, yes – but you know what I mean). Anyways, I will never ever let myself go like this again.
Luzern Labs Sunscreen.
Everyone should be wearing sunscreen, even you chocolatey-toned folks. One of my facialists, Mamie McDonald, who is an African American woman told me that the sun is the number one cause of aging. Once she told me that I was scared forever into a cave…hmm, maybe that’s why I don’t frequent the beach as often?
I found the beach bathroom.
Later I had dinner with my friend and labelmate, Joey Bada$$. He told me tour stories and we talked about some future collaborations. Oooh-weee. It’s gonna be great!
Stopped by the studio to drop a hot 16 for him and Pro Era. Actually, I just went to say hello, listened to some music and then biz-ounced.
