Wow, I have been so behind on my postings…my bad. Anyways, a month ago or so was a big birthday celebration for what seems like everyone’s loved and admired friend Ben Pundole.  To know him is to absolutely adore him. Ben is a charming and sweet and extremely talented. Glad I could be there to ring in his birthday.DSC01095Met Karl Justin for some pre-gaming, which entailed some Provence Rose and Raw Food via The Standard East Village – Gazpacho and Salad.

VIDEO: FKA Twigs – “Two Weeks” Dir. by Nabil


“Give me two weeks, you won’t recognize her…”

I am so thankful for Twigs. Sorry, not sorry…I’m bored by pop starlets who have the right creative team/stylists/song writers/choreographers, yet have zero art. This song and video is now on repeat and I’m so excited to see Young Twigs kill it. She’s like Sade meets Bjork, wrapped up in a baby-faced goddess.

The video was directed by the great Nabil. It has a slight similarity to the work of Marco Brambilla – specifically the Kanye West “Power” video…but with its own touch.

LIFE: Hooping with Black Rainbow & Friends – Terminal 23 New York City’s Jordan Gym (May 2014)

vashtie_basketball_520141Back in May – I got asked to hoop with my Parisian Friends from Black Rainbow Agency, Jay & Greg, which was super fun. I never get asked to play with the boys, probably because the ones that live state-side know that I’m a dud when it comes to playing sports. I think my Parisian friends knew that too, but they were down for some fun-filled hooping. I was excited and super nervous, just because I feel like I always end up indirectly getting hurt. Anyways. It was good times. The Jordan Gym, Terminal 23, provides you with a uniform and Jordans – but, since my feets were too small I improvised and brought my own…literally
