Last night I finally got the long-overdue chance to have dinner with my label mate, Joey Bada$$. While I waited for him at the bar, I ran into Angelo Baque and Rafael Rios who were also having dinner and waiting for a table. By the time Joey showed up, there was a table for 4 available and we decided to merge our dinners into one. It was a good time and I got to play with my new favorite toy, the Fuji Mini Instax.
From time to time I stumble upon this video and giggle to myself. In 2007, Nike asked me to participate in this fun project called NIKE TECH PACK. They interviewed all sorts of people from around the world, including dreamboat PAUL “P ROD” RODRIGUEZ. Anyways, this was my first on-camera interview and I’d like to think I’ve come a long way when it comes to on-camera appearances…um…um…um.
This is genius! Seriously. Every time I go to a fancy-shmancy event I throw on one of my vintage Chanel bags and my Canon G12 on my shoulder. I always think, it would be so cool to have a camera trap that looks like my Chanel trap…voila! My prayers (and I’m sure many of yours) have been answered by LSD FASHION LAB! Check it out! Also, they have some snazzy phone cases.
After the Frank 151 Panel Discussion ended, I decided to run around the corner to check out Miss Wendy Williams Book Launch at the new Pink Elephant. As you might imagine, it was star-studded and overflowing with decadent desserts and drinks! I didn’t get to meet Miss Wendy, but our day will come! I was glad to have been invited!

Don’t let her beauty fool you, she is a monster on the 1′s and 2′s. Seriously.
I didn’t stay too long. I had a date with some work, sweatpants and my couch…so I headed home early.
Frank 151 has been a staple in my life since high school. The miniature publication started it’s circulation in 1999 and recently went from being an underground bible to an accessible publication sold at local Barnes and Nobles (now slightly larger)! How’s that for convenient. When they asked me to be apart of their panel discussion on “Leaders”, I was definitely down! Especially since I had just interviewed Jonathan Mannion for that very issue.
I hate public speaking engagements because I’m not very good at it, or at least I don’t think so. I’m better one on one answering questions. Regardless, I was honored to be apart of the panel and answered various questions to the best of my abilities!

I met some amazing supporters at the event! I was super stoked. These two lovely Filipina girls from San Diego brought me my favorite raw/vegan cookies from One Lucky Duck. It was so sweet of them!
212 TUESDAYS return, this time around to 1OAK. If you live in New York and don’t bother with fancy clubs, your asking yourself the same thing I asked myself ”1OAK is still around”? I had no idea, no shade. Regardless, the addition of 212 TUESDAYS will make your work week dip worth it. Trust.

I absolutely hate my hair in a single ponytail, but having no time on your hand will make you do things you normally wouldn’t. I guess it doesn’t look so bad. I’ve also gained some weight back, but I’m still looking a little crypt keeper-ish.
Huggles playing the jams.
Awesome. Let’s all look at the people who spent 700$ on a bottle of Grey Goose that actually costs like 65$ in real life. Woo hoo.
I was obsessed with popping these bottles…they were actual glass bottles of Jana! Super fancy. Guess what will be on my rider next time I’m booked! Mhmmm.
In celebration of Chapter 51, FRANK is holding a special “Leaders” panel discussion at Barnes & Noble Union Square on Thursday, May 9, 2013 in NYC.

The event starts at 7pm and will require an in-store purchase of Chapter 51 ($10) for entry.
Special thanks to Alicia Keys who sent me these sick kicks. I love how she took the classic Freestyle shoe and made it new with an inner wedge! Love it just as much as I’m loving her new look! Buy yours now at Reebok.Com
