Valentines Day’s Preemptive Post

Valentines is always kind of a sad day for me these recent years. A few years ago, a boy from one of my art classes took a bus 2 hours to come to my work. He showed up with a dozen roses and a $50 box of chocolate.. sadly, I didn’t like him like that. I was surprised and smiled, said thank you and hugged him, he looked at me like I kicked him in the…

Discovery Raquel Reed

I dont snoop around much, maybe I should. So I had never heard of Raquel Reed until today. What I like about her is her unconventional looks (for a model) and the bright colors that are always present in photos of her are a grabber as well. I was extra surprised to find out that shes one of few black models making a name for herself. In an interview in Doe Deere Blogazine, she’s asked “They…

It’s almost that time of year!

No, not Christmas or Hanukkah. It’s almost time for Thakoon to release its line in Target! I normally wouldn’t be too excited about anything going on at Target, but it’s slowly becoming a mix between Walmart and Topshop with all these designer series they’ve had ( they may be even better than Topshop, but certainly no Barney’s). The prices on these normally expensive pieces will be between $16.99 – $44.99, for as long as they don’t…
