WOW, I love this dress! I love the black and gold, tropical flowers! I heard a lot of buzz about this landing her on the "Worst Dressed List", but to me this is an amazing artistic dress. What do you think?

Lil Mama , to me known as Lil 'trauma' Mama,
some may call her the "Voice of the Young People". I decided to write about her because to me she is the worst dressed entertainer that I know, and I would like to know who her stylists is? You may have seen her on MTV's "

I have been anticipating this blog post. I have seen these pictures on a few blogs (floating around the net), but knew they hadn't been posted on Hellz blog. Being respectful of Lanie, I wanted to wait until she released it on her blog first. She's an amazing designer, and I am so glad that I get the chance to be in the mix of things with her via Roxy. Hellz is by far the best Female Street Wear Brand, and by the looks of the pictures they win Hands Down!

Posted on MTV February 17, 2009. I am feeling this song a lot.
"Pay It Forward"
Also, if you get the chance take a look at "T.I.'s Road to Redemption". I really like what he is doing. It's not always a million peoples lives you have to impact, if you can just change one, you might impact a million more. I commend T.I. for his effort to help seven at risk youth, get on the right path to live a better live. :::Claps Hands:::

Bow Wow "You Can Get It All" from his new Album New Jack City II. Not feeling the song that much, but I do like the Video (directed by Hype Williams). The "whoo-hoo" sounds like Nelly lol. However, Bow is looking really good these days.

Not only can Drake act (former actor on Degrassi), he can sing and rap. His new Mixtape is that crack! I am over joyed by new artist having the chance to get their shot in the Music Industry. It is time for a change, and I welcome it! My favorite song is November 18! Big ups to Drake for going back with the old school Dj Screw beat, Lil KeKe sample too, wow o wow! I think I'm wet the song go's so hard, yes that hard! Check out his blog http://octobersveryown.blogspot.com/

Finally a video for Day 'n' Nite! The first time I heard this song, was around this time last year at a concert Cudi performed at (SOB's I think). The entire crowd was silent while rocking their heads to the beat, it was so surreal. I remember being on Aim with Callender trying to get him to accept the mp3 file for this song. I just realized while I blog, the reason he didn't download it from me was because he was there with a beer in hand, and that unforgettable smile, listening to it just like me along everyone else (DUUH KAY) Haha! None the less, I peeped his iChat, message displaying "Day 'n' Nite, -Kid Cudi", a few times since then. Cudi has come a long way in a year and I must say, he is mad cool and laid back, and I am so glad that I got a chance to be introduced to him through my girl Roxy! At first sight I thought that DustLA did the graphics for the video, but it was So-Me who also did the graphics for the Coca-Cola ad (SO-Me & Justice) for Club Coke that I blogged about yesterday. I'm not much of the one to explain things so well, but I can say, that the music video is fucking dope, and I'd like to see more stuff like this! I've always loved real life mixed with cartoon, like Roger Rabbit...
As one of the only Female Street Wear/ Life Style brands, MAMA is one of my favorites. I like the line a lot because, each season has a different theme. Just by looking through the seasons look books, you can tell each season is thoroughly thought about and that is what I respect most about this brand.
I was trying to avoid commenting about this entire fiasco between Chris & Rihanna. No one truly knows what happened, as with most relationships, and stories there is always two sides. I also would like to point out that, in most relationships the "bad" is usually omitted on both individuals side. With that being said, I have no further comment, because there is quite frankly nothing to talk about. I was given a link to www.tmz.com of the alleged photo taken of the bruises to Rihanna (picture featured above). "No man should ever hit a woman, the best thing to do is just walk away."_Kalyn

Club Coke, celebrating their 5th year anniversary of Coca-Cola's newest marketing campaign aimed at the European Dance Scene and their Love for the drink as much as their nose candy. I am not a sniffer but I often times will indulge in a nice cold Coke, most times cherry, but either way I do like to sip a coke. What better way for them to promote Coca-Cola than by getting Justice and So-Me, Ed Banger's designer to create the newest Design on the coke bottle?
Above are a few picture's and the video ad, which is inspired by Justice's Music Video "DANCE". The coolest part besides the pop-art design, is that the Bottle is glow in the dark! The bottles will be available in the best clubs around the world!
I'd love to get my hands on a bottle and save it as a novelty piece.
I redid, Miss Hello Kitty, Nude. I love it! I decided to do two versions! The top one is inspired by Kaws. I am thinking about getting it tattooed somewhere, or maybe putting it on a Special Edition T-Shirt for my Clothing line! We shall see! SOOOO CUTE!
This is actually cute to me! I am going to redo this in illustrator, and maybe make it into a shirt! I saw this at Hello Kitty Hell, and most people seem to be disgusted by a nude Hello Kitty. I am such a liberal, and the more nudity, the better, especially when it is tastefully done. What do you think? Should I add color? What color should her nipples be? Pink!? HAHA
I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!
First off, I am a Fan of Hello Kitty, so don't be mad, if I "over-blog" about her! I just can't help it. Last week MAC released the newest collection which was a collaboration with Hello Kitty. I was on You Tube, and I found this, ad for the new line. I really like it, its very dark, yet bright. The sex appeal that will attract the consumers to Mac plus the cuteness that will attract all Hello Kitty fans. It's very Dreamy, with an Alice In Wonderland concept. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

My Great friend Somos is celebrating his Birthday today! Yay! I wish I was in Las Vegas with him Wilding out...but I am in New York, fighting the woes of this Recession. I wish I could have gotten you a cake, but this is the best I can do Mos!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY from Kalyn!
KANYE WEST "Welcome To Heartbreak" Directed by Nabil from nabil elderkin on Vimeo.
Kanye Posted on his blog, the Video for "Welcome to Heartbreak" Ft. Kid Cudi. Here it is reposted here..lol! I like it, but not as much as "Heartless". The effects are supposed to look distorted and "messed up", not too sure I completely dig it. However, I do love the song!
"This is not the next single, "Amazing" is the next single.
This is the video we've been working on for the last month.
We know there is another video out there using the same technique so we were forced to drop it now." (Kanye's Blog)

In 2007 Seventeen Magazine had a shoe Design Contest for Vans.
All you had to do was go to the Vans website download the VANS shoe template.
Create whatever you wanted on the shoe, and submit it to their E-mail.
Above is what I did, a pair of watermelon VANS!
I never heard anything back from them, and now I see this!
They're dropping a fruit pair, for spring 2009!
After talking to some of my friends, I hear a lot of Shoe Companies do this, to get Ideas. So be careful if you plan on submitting your designs to a company for a contest.
Once you submit, it becomes their property! ;(
Super Excited! Roxy X Hellz-Bellz "Some Bunny Loves YOU" shirt just dropped. You can purchase it for $45.00 at Karmaloop.com. It comes packaged with goodies, "Some Bunny Loves You" Mixtape by Melo-X and Roxy Cottontail, and stickers!
