Broke and Living

Good Morning,

It’s still a Recession, for those of you that say it isn’t I don’t know what planet you’re living on.  If you’re currently not Broke and Living, do you want to adopt me? Just a simple question, no need to roll your eyes at me.. gosh.

Well you know my fam, whom I so often mention The Discombobulated Tricks? Well they’re back with some new flavor. Their new site is called www.brokeandliving.com. You know the Kanye line “We all self-conscious, I’m just the first to admit it“? Well this is along those lines. Nowadays, everyone tries to act like all they do is get money and stunt in clubs with Grey Goose bottles while really their rent isn’t paid. Boy, disappear! Girls acting like they’re Rihanna in the club when they borrowed (or stole their whole outfit) and they walk out in the videolight when Fancy comes on. Girl, good-damn-day!

My girls aren’t frontin.

BROKE AND LIVING.

“Been gone for awhile now I’m back with the jumpoff”. Shoutouts to the Lil Kim that still looked like a Barbie but at that time, not a deformed one.

Hello my loves.

How was everyone’s weekend? For those of you that don’t live in Canada, we had a Long Weekend with some sexy ass weather. My kind of time. I spent the weekend with majority of the people in my life right now and per usual it was goodtimes.

Hot weather makes me so happy, I don’t even think people understand me when I say this. There is nothing like picking up randomly, throwing on some cutoff shorts and hitting the road. Summer brings out a lot of good things to me.

Before I go completely off topic, I have some good news that I need to share. For those of you wondering what exactly it is I do, I thought I’d address that. What does Datchickneeks do? The simple answer is a little bit of everything. I’ve always had many interests growing up, and have never fully honed in on ONE thing in particular. That was always a problem with parental unit types, because I wouldn’t focus my energy into one group. At this point in time, I still  don’t think I need to do that. If I can excel in one more than one category, why not do so?  Growing up, I’ve always been into being my own unique self fashion wise. For those of you that went to highschool with me, you cannot forget my customized EVERYTHING. If it came to my head, I’d do it. To me, there was never anything wrong in trying. Well looks like that has aspect of my personality has finally paid off.  Opportunities arise in the simplest of ways and there is no way I couldn’t pass up on it.

(What is she talking about?!)

Lately I’ve been getting back into creating my own jewelry pieces and customized outfits and been wearing them around the town. Thankfully someone was paying attention because there is a store in Toronto called Haus Clothing, that has offered to sell some of my stuff along with The Discombobulated Tricks! !  🙂 🙂

It may not seem like much to you, but it’s a big deal to us. This is just the BEGINNING of a beautiful thing. We’re a team that works well with each other and all bring something a little different to the table.  The support that Rachel and William have shown us at Haus is amazing and very much appreciated.

I’ll be uploading pictures so that you all can see. If you want to check it out in person, slide on down to Haus Clothing. It’s located at 1265 Bloor St W (Bloor/Lansdowne).

Jersey Shore: Do my eyes deceive me?

This ladies and gentlemen goes to show you what a good makeup artist, stylist and scrubbing can do for the image.

For those of you that watched the crazy cast of The Jersey Shore last season like myself you know that these people looked like the “Italian” version to Trailer Park Trash(those of you that don’t want to admit it, it’s okay I see you lol). This whole cast showed us what can happen when you give a group of people, too many bottles of gel and way too many tans. Somehow it begins to alter the brain matter.

The brilliant magazine that is Harper’s Bazaar has decided to showcase the ladies of The Jersey Shore in what I would call an amazing transformation.

This is them before:

You can just feel the crabs jumping off of them

Here is their May 2010 spread in Harper’s Bazaar:

From Left to Right:  Jenni “J-Woww”, Nicole “Snooki” and Sammi “The Sweetheart”.

They look A-MAY-ZING! This is why I always say, take pride in your appearance and everyone will take notice in a good way. I’m loving all of these dresses. Excellent styling.

Wowwww April 28th

*Shakes head*

Folks this is what happens when you don’t know how to dress age appropriate.

I give you, Toni Braxton…

What happened?

...and why did it happen?

Toni Braxton is 42 years old and she has NO BUSINESS in this outfit. None. Her kitty kat is printed out for the world to see , not to mention those lace cutouts at the side? Her bum is also sagging. Is this a joke?

 Don’t even get me riled up on that shaved head of hers. I need all of these moms to stop this ASAP! I didn’t like it on Cassie, Lala, Mel B , Toni what made you think we would accept it? Not only was it a bad idea, it looks like you cut it in the dark with shades on. No ma’ammmm no ma’am.

There is nothing wrong with looking sexy at any age, but there is a way to do it age appropriately. This definitely missed that boat by a week.

Shoutout these ladies.

These girls are fly.

                                                   L-R : Shannon, Moi, Charlene, Chey, Danielle

Came across this pic and just felt like shouting these ladies out as they’re all doing their thing!

Shannon is doing her thing for The Broken Heel Diaries. Check out that site, I love it! It’s a really good site for women.

The girl next to Shannon in the green skirt, is some chick named Neeks. Yea, she aight.

Charlene aka Asia fiasco is 1/3 of The Discombobulated Tricks styling team. They do it all, the necklace that I’m wearing in this pic was designed by them.

The 2 Goddess looking females on the far right are Chey and Danielle who represent Liipstik Styling Team.

 

I’m all about supporting my own, and these are people that you need to look out for! Check them all out at their respective sites.

 

Jon Kortajarena

This is the type of Male Model I’d love to shoot.

His name is Jon Kortajarena and I’m sure some of you have seen him in the new H&M campaigns. The first time I saw his pic I was screaming all kinds of “damn-n-n-n-n” in my head and maybe even outloud.

Jon was born in Bilbao, Spain (mmm) on May 19th,1985. He has discovered at Fashion Week, while attending with a friend. Jon has done work for Tom Ford, Guess, Cavelli, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, etc etc etc. It’s not hard to see why he’s so big, I mean… just look at him. He has piercing eyes, chiseled cheekbones, nice full lips and a crazy body. *fans self off*

Brazen Hussy Fashion Show

Good Morning!

Yesterday was a pretty productive day for me. Did my regular 9-5’er, then had a photoshoot in the afternoon/evening, then attended the Brazen Hussy Fashion Show. My photoshoot went well, it was for up and coming dancer Tamara who’s pretty amazing. Shoutout to Shannon and Ren, thank you for all your behind the scenes help. This is the 1st of many 😉 , love you guys.

After the shoot I rushed over to the fashion show with my girl Char (@AsiaFiasco) which was held at ULTRA. We made it in the nick of time! Only missed 1 or 2 looks.

The show was a success, alot of muted neutral colors, which is very much in for the S/S 2010. They showed a variety of things: Dresses, tights, shirts, pants, body suits.

Loved this dress

The designers themselves

It was a great show, with great people.

Shoutouts:

Miss AsiaFiasco from the Discombobulated Tricks. You already know what it is.

Shannon: Long time no see! You’re doing big things with LaVieInc and The Broken Heel diaries. Thanks for the interview, I’m a little nervous to see it lol.

All in all, it was an excellent night. Looking forward to more of these.

Stop Telephoning Me!

It’s here… it’s finally here.

Lady Gaga feat Beyonce- Telephone.

This video gave me life! Fashion, Drama, Extraness, Humor, Dance, Fashion, Fierceness.

That’s all I will say for now.

Cut the crap (1)

This should be a new segment that I do, not sure if the title “Cut the Crap” will stay but we’ll see. Either way I’m not having any of this.

Ke$ha

 

Am I the only one that feels itchy just looking at this picture? She looks like she hasn’t bathed in months. Not to mention I’ma need her to get her own style because trying to combine Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Rihanna into one and not combing your hair in the process doesn’t fly with me. The fact that she spells her name “Ke$ha” just makes me think more of her as a prostitute in training.

Ke$ha you get a no ma’am, don’t pass GO, head straight to jail card from me.

Real Major

Hair, Makeup, Styling,  Photography, Creative Directing. You want it, we got it!

Oh, and who else can whine to “Raggamuffin’ and do the whole Single Ladies dance while doing all of the above.

Didn’t think so.

Datchickneeks + The Discombobulated Tricks = Love and Creativity
